Watermark - Magical Island Getaway - it's pet friendly for small animals, sleeps up to 6 and just over 1 hour from Sydney CBD. WATERMARK is a charming and unpretentious weekender located on Dangar Island, facing north east overlooking the Brisbane Waters escarpment on the Hawkesbury River. The property is set on almost 900 square metres, so plenty of space for children and pets to play, including the beach and lawn at the front of the property. The cottage is open plan on the ground floor, with large windows which provide light and panoramic views. The wrap around deck provides space to entertain. There is one bathroom on the ground floor, a modern kitchen and an open plan lounge and dining area.

Mornings can be spent lazing on the deck in the warm air listening to the water gently lapping on the sea wall. Watermark is an air conditioned 2 bedroom holiday home that accommodates up to 6 has 5 beds and single mattress additional for up to 6 if required - with a spacious open plan living space, slow combustion fire, & modern kitchen. It has panaromic water views and home comforts.

The upstairs bedroom has a queen sized bed and a single bed and an additional single mattress in the very spacious room. The downstairs bedroom has a double sized bed and water views to the east - great to watch the sun rise. The wrap around deck is great for entertaining as well as watching the tide come and go, the water birds feed and local boating and fishing. Watermark has its own private jetty and pontoon which is great for fishing.

Filled with easy living furniture and ocean d├ęcor, Watermark engraves a sense of being completely enveloped by the water & the 'weekender' ambience. A number of perfectly placed windows allow you to observe the river and breath-taking backdrop of the distant cliffs, as if it were an artwork hanging on the wall. Take the opportunity to enjoy a stress free, peaceful weekend. Experience the tranquility of the island, take a walk or explore the shoreline, enjoy a coffee or a meal at the local cafe or a drink and dinner/lunch at the licensed bowling club.

There's also wi-fi on site.

The bowling club is located a short stroll of 50 metres away. Great food, great atmosphere and it's licensed too. Bradleys beach is a short walk to the south of the island.

BBQ the fish you have just caught off the private jetty/pontoon fishing lines provided.

If you so choose you can engage in something more physical by having a paddle on one of the two kayaks provided, explore the rock formations and boathouses and the shoreline, or walk around the island and view the spectacular scenery, island life and Aboriginal carvings. All without being bothered by cars or city noise, with just the sounds of birds to accompany you. There are no cars on the island.

If you fancy home cooked food the kitchen is well equipped and modern and the grocery store stocks a diverse range of fresh and other provisions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, relaxing location We had a beautiful and relaxing weekend at Watermark with our two dogs. Escaping the hustle and bustle of Sydney, we found Watermark to be the perfect spot to unwind. The home is in the most amazing location and we spent much of our time sitting on the deck gazing out over the water. Watermark is perfect for a couple or family – the upstairs bedroom means space is not an issue. We enjoyed the fact that the loungeroom is sun drenched, making it feel nice and cosy even if it is a little cold outside. We appreciated that there was a range of cooking essentials such as spices to help us prepare our meals and the cupboards are stocked with so many plates, cups and other crockery. Café Dangar is only a short stroll away and we enjoyed two very scrumptious breakfasts looking out over the Hawkesbury River. Thanks Karen for making our stay so lovely. We hope to return in the future to enjoy this lovely home and it’s spectacular location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect place to relax Despite gale force winds and quite chilly weather, we had a fabulous long weekend at Watermark. The house was extremely cosy with a good heater, a great fireplace ( we were nearly down to our underwear the first night having put too much wood on!) and fabulous picture windows that catch the warmth of the sun as well as giving expansive view the stunning river and scenery. We loved that the house was right down on the water with a private jetty, a little beach for our child and dog to romp at low tide and a flat patch of lawn above to recline and sit and watch the antics and sun setting on the sandstone rocks across the river. The house is simple, very well equipped, tasteful and comfortable. Karen, the owner was great to deal - prompt and efficient in communication and very genously accomodating us when our plans changed. I'd highly recommend Watermark as somewhere to take a break to relax. The island has enough to explore for a few days and best of all for us, less than an hour from home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious long weekend We had a glorious long weekend at Watermark. The sun streamed in all morning and during the middle of the day. It was extra quiet, being the East side of the island, facing Wobby Beach and the National Park, and with less passing boat traffic than on the Brooklyn side. We could feel the stress drifting away. We enjoyed the walk around the island and up the hill - great view. We brought our own boat, which meant we could tie up at the house's private jetty and explore the bays nearby at our leisure. You can't get to the jetty at low tide, so you need to think about what time you are coming and going. Thanks Karen for making it such a great stay. Rob

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A midwinter delight Lovely time staying at Dangar Island, after an incredibly busy and stressful first half of the year, it was just the antidote we needed!
