MEET YOUR HOSTS
Innes and Nicole
Innes and Nicole Pearce stumbled across Hawthorn Villa while on holiday in Tasmania in 2003, instantly fell in love with it, and made the decision to purchase the property and relocate from Sydney with their 3 children, Emily Erin & Joel.
"Owning an accommodation business was a new experience for us which has proved to be rewarding and very enjoyable. While at times it can be hard work, we love meeting new guests and ensuring that their experience here is unique."
Innes’ background in landscape gardening and Nicole’s interest of rare plants and design ensures the garden structure is constantly evolving and expanding.
