Nestled into the hillside above Bright, the home is set on a 2nd storey.  Head down the stairs to your second al fresco area with lawns to play on, or enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool while savouring the 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.

Photos do not do this place justice. Walked in and was instantly in love with the property it’s close to town and was a daily walk for us. We were also fortunate to have friendly native neighbours come past to say hello ( Kangaroos and Kookaburra’s)

We have been staying at Gumtree Vila for a few years now, I can recommend the location with the views and the accommodation being excellent. Alpine Valley Getaways have always looked after us with the booking process and on arrival.

The heaters were on when we arrived. The layout of the house is excellent. The main bedroom is large, it overlooks trees and has an ensuite. The kitchen is very well stocked with appliances, crockery etc. There's a bbq. The house is very well set up for dogs. Our dogs enjoyed their stay. The open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge room is great for having everyone together.

The house was fantastic, unfortunately the service from Emma was lacking- didn't return our phone call.

- Damian - 15/08/2016
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.

Very spacious and a very quiet location, bliss!

fantastic place!!!

- Soobeom - 18/04/2016
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 - 16/04/2016

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 - 07/02/2016
Our stay at Gumtree Villa was fantastic! The size and layout of the house is perfect for families. The location, setting and facilities are perfect. The cleanliness of the bedding and amenities was spot on. It really felt like a home away from home for all three generations of our family. Thank you so much!

- Alison - 08/11/2015
Great house for the whole family. Nice roomy living area with lovely views. We made good use of the balcony to sit and have coffee and soak up the sun. The wood heater kept the whole upstairs area lovely and cosy. The kitchen was well set out and had ample utensils if you decide to cook, we used the barbecue which is located on the balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and quietly located house.

- Victoria - 13/09/2015
Very relaxing house is set in a very nice bush setting at the end of the road.
A great place to sit on the balcony and look out over Bright and the hills and watch the sun go down.The fire place was great for chilly nights.

- Nekija - 11/08/2015
Fabulous stay! The house was spacious, well stocked and very comfortable for a large family and pooch! The information given prior to arrival was fabulous and allowed us to have the most perfect and relaxing stay. Thank you

- Johanna - 09/08/2015
Fantastic holiday house.

- Suzy - 02/08/2015
On top of hill. Quiet. Peaceful. Good lounge room with fireplace and reverse cycle heaters. Warm despite being there in winter. Well laid out. Really liked it.

- Sanjay - 21/07/2015
Gumtree Villa far exceeded our expectations. The master bedroom is wonderful with stunning views to wake up to. The fireplace got a good work out, kept us nice and cosy! Would highly recommend this house!

- Casey - 31/05/2015
Everything you could wish for for a relaxing get away. Clean and spacious. Very comfy and I loved that there were three couches to seat all of the three couples comfortably.Our only issue was that only one room has queen bed. If staying with friends you need to remind them that only one room has queen size bed.The other two are doubles.

- Maryanne - 24/05/2015
Lovely relaxing setting and kitchen well equipped with appliances.

- Wendy - 10/05/2015
Terrific experience from the ease of the online reservation to the quality of the property. All the mod cons at hand and a taste of the country life with fire at the ready. We stayed two nights but could easily have stayed more. Look forward to visiting here again.

- Caroline - 29/04/2015
Very happy generally.
Would have liked bed lamps, bedside tables and electric blankets in 2nd. and 3rd. bedrooms.

- Peter - 03/05/2015
Beautiful property. Very comfortable. Lovely views. Well equipped. Will recommend to family and friends. Hope to stay again next year.

- Pauline - 17/04/2015
A lovely property that provides the perfect setting for relaxation.

- Amanda - 01/03/2015
Beautiful property, perfect set up, great location. Will definitely be back!

- Ines - 25/02/2015
Fantastic house, lovely outlook and easy booking/check in.
Would definitely stay again.

- Jessica - 06/10/2014
What a fantastic place. I'd recommend Gumtree Villa to anybody. Close to town, but still has the feeling of isolation and privacy. A great kitchen, you don't have to bring anything and you've got two great supermarkets to choose from. Comfy lounge and outdoor areas, a brilliant BBQ. It took me a while to get used to no blinds on the master bedroom windows. The only downside for me, but hardly a dealbreaker.

- Steve - 14/09/2014
Loved it, great property that lived up to the photos. Clean, spacious and well presented. Would definitely come again.

- Rodney - 03/09/2014
This place is just amazing.
Has everything you could possibly need especially if you have kids with the consoles and a heap of board games.
Can't wait to go back

- Robert - 10/08/2014
Nice comfortable place. Wood heater works great in winter but only heats main room and main bedroom. Heating might be a problem if using other bedrooms. No blinds in main bedroom but no big deal for us. Would book again. Great place. PS. Dog run fence only 1 meter high so maybe not suitible for large dogs.

- Terry - 07/08/2014
We had a great time at the property. With the double glazing the house was lovely and warm all the time. Had all the amenities you need for a carefree holiday. Just a pleasant walk down to town and being at the end of the road had all the privacy we desired.

- Ian - 03/08/2014
Large open plan living, with ample area both indoors and out. Nice modern amenities but Most of all it was very clean and relaxing. Waking up to the sounds of native birds was very nice. Was even lucky enough to have 2 kangaroos stroll onto the property every day.
As a pet friendly home it was perfect and Pretty sure our dog did not want to leave.
