Yandiah - Hawkesbury River cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Less than an hour's drive from the Sydney CBD, Dangar Island on the Hawkesbury River offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Take the island ferry or a water taxi from Brooklyn and leave your cares behind.

On Dangar Island there is something for everyone - paddle on the river, walk on the car free island pathways, fish off your own private jetty, swim at Bradley's Beach, have a coffee or light meal at the local shop/cafe, dine at the club, challenge your friends to a game of barefoot bowls, have a sunset BBQ by the water's edge and watch the boats (and maybe even a pod of dolphins) go by, or just relax and unwind with a good book.

The House

Bright, open and comfortable, Yandiah accommodates 6 people, with 2 double rooms and 1 twin room. There are also 2 day beds on the enclosed verandah. There are 2 bathrooms, laundry facilities, a well equipped kitchen, dining and indoor /outdoor living areas, all set in a tropical garden overlooking the river. At the water's edge you will find a pizza oven and BBQ area, and last but by no means least an amazing, double boat shed also equipped with kitchen/bar facilities.

All towels and linen provided. Also stocked with some basic grocery items.

My girlfriends and I absolutely loved our stay and will be back again for sure. Beautiful island vibe, so close to Sydney but feels worlds away when you are there. Thanks Kathy!

Love this place!

This was the second time we got to stay at the beautiful Yandiah! It is a lovely little cottage with so much character and the boatshed is the perfect venue for champagne on the river, watching the world go by. We have decided we are going to make this an annual event - we cant wait to come back. Thank you so much for another year of amazing memories.

Relaxing Getaway

'Yandiah ' is an excellent property provided with everything you could need for a

relaxing stay, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, books to read and music to play.

Boatshed and jetty is a bonus. We are planning a return stay.

Beautiful location & pet friendly!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Yandiah - the log fire was great, the boathouse, the jetty and the great jazz band playing outside the garden bowling bar. Would definitely recommend for a small family with well behaved dogs. Take walking shoes & in winter rug up as when the fire goes out it is freezing! Also don't fall into our trap of getting incorrect advise from Coles call centre about their delivery service - they only go as far as Brooklyn. You do need to take all your supplies across with you. Great for a weekend away.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay Fiona! Well behaved dogs are always welcome, and good advice to rug up in winter - or snuggle with a friend. I think the problem with places like Coles is that they think you are kidding when you say you are calling from an actual island so close to Sydney. Definitely bring your supplies across with you - and top up from the little local store or the marina at Brooklyn. Kathy & Arn

a fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house and boatshed are absolutely wonderful. We spent hours in the boatshed having BBQ's, drinks and fishing- it has fridges, music everything you need. The house is beautiful and filled with all you need and wonderful eclectic art and memorabilia. We were said to leave.

Fantastic place to stay - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, it felt like we were on holidays on a tropical island. The house was beautiful and a lot bigger that I had expected and very well equipped with everything we need, plus more. Having the boat shed was amazing and allowed the for a nice retreat during the day and night, while the parents sat on the back verandah of the house. The Island was also amazing from the bush walks, to the swimming, or just a quiet coffee at the café (must try is their home made sausage rolls). The ferry was very easy to catch and close to the house which was great for my elderly parents. We popped back to Brooklyn a couple of times to get fresh seafood and some more wines which was quick and easy (everything is right next to the Ferry Wharf). Would recommend this house to my friends and will be back.

Owner's Response: Mitch we are so pleased that you enjoyed your time on Dangar, and that your parents did too. The island is a magical place and provides such a great way to get away from Sydney, without going very far. We look forward to seeing you again. K & A
