“Our stay at Pear Tree Cottage was so much better than we expected. Personal touches made this so comfortable for us and we greatly appreciated this eg a variety of bedding to use for the different changes in temperature which is great if you're a sensitive sleeper. Freshly picked raspberries we're given to us, yum! The coastal walks so close we're a huge treat also. Simon and Chris were very attentive and prompt with any needs expressed. So we highly recommend Pear Tree Cottage at Taroona.”

“I had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning in the very near future. Peter’s attention to detail is impressive. Upon walking into the unit, I was pleasantly welcomed with a lovely display of flowers picked from his garden, a fruit bowl featuring his homegrown gooseberries and apricots and some caramel toffees, as well as a bottle of wine with two wine glasses. The towels and linens were of high quality and it was very nice to have a selection of personal bathroom amenities. The fridge was generously stocked and included a bottle of his home-brewed beer. Peter's Breakfast Menu selections are impressive… I had his black rice dish, and a side of yogurt with his homegrown honey and gourmet coffee….delicious 5-star rating and very affordable. Not to mention, my breakfast was presented on a tray and served to me just like in a restaurant. An added bonus to my stay was the fact that Peter has an extensive knowledge of Tasmania’s history. So, I had the pleasure of having a personal Tour Guide on-site! Peter is a wonderfully attentive host and has cleverly blended a pleasant, casual boutique-hotel feel for his guests. This is a very affordable 5-star quality experience. I will definitely be back!”

“I would like to keep this piece of paradise a secret. There is no doubt the more people who discover this sanctuary at Taroona the less chance we will have of finding it vacant when we wish to return! Already planning our next visit - four days definitely not long enough. Nel's stunning home away from home has everything one could need. A tranquil beach/bush hideaway, 15 minutes from Hobart, a fabulous welcome, with treats in the fridge, an indulgent soak in the spa then off to sleep in a very comfortable bed to the swish of waves breaking on the beach. Can't get much better. Thanks so much to our marvellous hosts Nel and Lorne.”
