Pear Tree Hollow Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type cottage


About the property

Inspiring. Restoring. Refreshing.

For couples who love nature, environmentally friendly living and privacy.

Pear Tree Hollow cottage is modern rustic styling and a little bit quirky!

Experience a Romantic Escape, an Artist's Retreat or an Executive Refresh in your own self-contained early settler cottage with cedar windows, rustic solid brick walls and flooring, timber ceilings and comfortable mix of modern rustic styling.

Luxury King size bed (or two king singles by request), lots of pillows, and plenty of nooks to curl up with a book or friend, as well as some local produce and breakfast supplies (the cottage also includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining and bathroom.)

Nestled in a hollow on the ridge overlooking Inman Valley in the Central Southern Fleurieu Peninsula, you have full access to breathtaking panoramic views from your own front lawn/garden, outside BBQ and small forest to relax in next to your cottage.

And.. you are free to roam or picnic in the rest of Pear Tree Hollow's 3 hectares of rural garden and the gum tree forest 'butterfly walk'. This is an amazing bird lover's paradise with dozen's of native bird species at home here as well as echidnas and kangaroos.

Totally off-grid by choice and design, the property enjoys the alternative energy from the sun and breeze, and the warmth of a cosy combustion wood fireplace.

Managed by owners Michelle & Peter, come and experience their special signature style and service.

Extras and Nearby

Pear Tree Hollow is also home to Leontynes Province (Upcycled Treasures), so you'll notice that some of the furniture items and decorations in the cottage are for sale, and other items for sale by appointment to inspect.

Quirky little cafes and shops are only 10 minutes drive, and the property is central to attractions including Deep Creek Conservation Park, access to the Heysen Trail, horse-riding on white sandy beaches, blue seas and dive sites at Normanville (15 mins) and Rapid Bay, golf courses at Lady Bay and Victor Harbor (20 mins) and 30 minutes to Kangaroo Island Ferry.

Michelle & Peter are also professional counsellors and relationship and leadership coaches, so consulting is also available on site by advance appointment and additional fee for executives, couples and artists.

About Michelle & Peter Skurray

We're an creative and adventurous couple always up for a new challenge as we aim to make Pear Tree Hollow the most loved accommodation destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Michelle & Peter Skurray purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Michelle & Peter Skurray chose Inman Valley

For many years we searched for a property like this, and today we're so glad to share it with others. It constantly gives us enjoyment of some of the best vistas in the Fluerieu Peninsula's Adelaide Hills, and feels like our own Australian 'Tuscany' or french 'Provence'.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll be awed by the huge sweeping views from the property as we are, and the environmentally friendly approach to living here in modern rustic style.

Incredible ambiance and feel!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and i stayed here just for the 1 night and it was incredible.

You are detached from the hustle and bustle of the world and left to enjoy a breathe taking view of the valley and natural flora and fauna. The cottage was small and homely and presented beautifully.The King Bed was to die for and also presented with rose petals and ample pillows. Would definitely stay here again!!

Beautiful romantic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Pear Tree Hollow. It was exactly what we wanted: romance, seclusion, cosiness, open log fire, candles, wine; perfect. The cottage is delightfully and tastefully decorated. The views, when we could see them (thanks to the appalling weather) were spectacular across the valley. Thank you Michelle and Peter, you were perfect invisible hosts. We will definitely recommend this wonderful hideaway.

Delightful ambience, environment, good facilities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at “Pear Tree Hollow on 22 and 23 July 2017. The “settler’s cottage”, built about 2002 is very luxurious and in good taste, if somewhat more opulent than a settler would have settled for. It is exceptionally well equipped for warm comfort, cooking and convenience, and with many books, games and good DVD’s. Michelle was very receptive and attentive to our suggestions and made for a delightful weekend escape. She was totally unobtrusive. We think some of our suggestions for the breakfast menu will result in a wider selection of Fleurieu Peninsular produce. Well done, Michelle!

Perfect retreat

Thank you both, Michelle and Peter, for offering such a charmingly delightful cottage. The views were breathtaking. The accommodation was cosy, inviting and clean. The cottage had a old world feel, and was decorated very tastefully, we loved the extra touches, nothing was overlooked. We will certainly recommend Pear Hollow Cottage to all our friends.
