Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful 2 night stay. The "shack" is anything but a shack. Beautifully decorated, equipped with everything you need (except food of course). Perfect location for a romantic getaway or just to get away from it all. We'll definitely stay again.

Such a novelty!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the boathouse. It is very beautiful both inside and out! The deck is magical in the afternoon with the sun streaming in. It was a real novelty to be right on the water. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all meals. The boathouse warmed up perfectly after the sun went down. We would definitely visit again. Thank you!

One of a kind property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and took our two dogs with us. The boat house was clean and comfortable and the sunset views over the water are breathtaking. It did get very cold at night so if you are traveling with fur babies in winter make sure you pack warm jumpers for them. There is no tv or radio in the property either, so make sure you bring some etertaibment for the evenings.

Absolutely Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

2 nights , mid winter in this delightful cosy boathouse was a perfect recharge for the body and soul . My 2 year old Cavoodle joined me for a mini-break in this gorgeous little place on exquisite Dangar Island. Leanne and Warren were perfect hosts, setting up the hot tub for a sunset spa. The boathouse is very nicely appointed with everything you need and nothing you don't.

Just Perect,
