A Modernist Vacation Retreat in Australia, Rental Edition

June 27, 2016

A quick ferry ride from Sydney, Australia, Dangar Island is a tiny vacation spot in the Hawkesbury river. It’s also the setting for one of our favorite rental discoveries: the Dangar Island House, with interiors by Karen McCartney (the noted Australian design writer and editor). For booking information, go to The Dangar Island House.
