Perched high on the hill above Bright is Gumtree Villa, a sunny and open, fully equipped home to escape the world and leave the city behind among the tall Gums.

Relax in your open plan living area with huge picture windows to let the mountain surrounds in. Cosy by the wood fire or dine on the patio overlooking your in-ground pool.

Create magic in the kitchen with a feast of local produce then spend the night admiring the stars above Bright.

Your fully equipped kitchen features everything you could need including a pod style coffee machine and large walk in pantry. Enjoy drinks around the kitchen area or head out to the deck to soak up the mountains with a local cheese platter.

Little ones - and big kids - will love the games room with WII and exploring the 2 acres of gardens leading into Alpine State Park. Bring your bikes to make use of the bike racks!

Nestled into the hillside above Bright, the whole home is set on the 2nd storey. Head down the stairs to your 2nd al fresco area with lawns to play or relax and in-ground pool with stunning views.

A fully enclosed, large dog run with kennel will keep your furry friend safe while you explore Bright, or they will love the walks surrounding the property.

The master bedroom with queen bed features an ensuite and walk in robe while the others feature either a double bed or double with single bed above sleeping 7 guests. All bedding & linen is provided so you can just arrive, relax and enjoy!

Also including a full laundry, a location close to spectacular walks & views and an easy drive or walk into the town centre - you really have it all!

Great place to stay. Secluded and close to township - a very rare combination. Best place we stayed so far in the area. – Boris – May ‘16

Very spacious and a very quiet location, bliss! – Julie – May ‘16

Really enjoyed our stay. It was so private and quiet with lovely views through the trees and over the valley. A big plus was being on the edge of the forest and plenty of space for the dogs to run around. – Dorothy – May ‘16

We enjoyed a very relaxing and happy stay at the Gumtree Villa. We were thrilled with the size and layout of the house, and wished we could transplant the design and storage (my goodness -the robe storage in the master bedroom!!! WOW!) to our own home! The house has a lovely aspect, and we enjoyed using the pool and telescope. Thank you! - Samantha - April '16

Great house, sensational views! Perfect getaway spot. Kangaroo's and numerous birdlife greets you in the morning. Very private. Loved it! - Peter - March '16

Love love love this house - so relaxing, amazing views, all the comforts of home and more - if the owners ever want to sell let me know!!! - Gillian - March '16

Gumtree Villa is perfect for families and very pet-friendly! Everything you could ever need is supplied, the house has a fantastic perspective and is close enough to cafes and restaurants to walk to. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning! - Jessica - February '16

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW Great House! Great views! We had a great weekend at the Gumtree Villa. Everything you need provided. Kangaroo's, bird life! Dog friendly, our two dogs loved it. Dog run a bit rough but served its purpose. I highly recommend this accomodation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! We absolutely loved our stay at Gumtree Villa. We had 2 x couples in our group. The house is massive - much bigger than we originally thought. Master bedroom could not be faulted. Stunning view, big queen bed, walk in robes and ensuite. The second bedroom however is pretty small and only a double bed with no view. We didn't use the third bedroom but it was similar size with double bed and bunk above it. Main bathroom and toilet were near second bedroom so felt like the other couple had their own space - not on top of each other at all. Fire was cranking the entire time. Lovely to be so cosy when so cold outside. Up a large hill so needed I drive to town - in summer you may be more encouraged to walk!! Overall, we loved our stay.
