— Please describe the layout of the house.
The house features two separate decks, one on each level with views through the trees to the river. A large open plan lounge and dining room with a wood burning stove is partially divided from the kitchen by a long stone topped island bench. The lower level is accessed by an internal set of stairs and contains a double bedroom with a 20sqm deck plus a bathroom and laundry. Exterior stairs lead to the local river beach which is sandy and suitable for swimming at high tide. The house is 20 metres from the nearest ‘road’ and accessed by stairs.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at Dangar Island House?
Because there are no cars on the island, walking around is very pleasant. There is a bowling green on the island for lawn bowls and a small corner shop that serves coffee, cakes and breakfasts. The ferry is a slow way to get to and from the island but this is the beauty of the place – everything is done at a slow pace.”
