Powered by an off the grid solar power system, gas appliances and stand-alone rain water harvesting system, you will realise the amazing freshness of drinking and bathing in some of the cleanest rain water the world has to offer. Recently completed, the Island House is a well-equipped spacious 2 bedroom which has plenty of room for your couples or family getaway offering modern stylish finishes throughout, porcelain tiled wet areas, leather lounges and a lovely wood fire for those cooler nights. At the rear, the Island house has an amazing massive 72 m2 new hardwood deck and veranda, with outdoor dining, BBQ and brand new outdoor lounge seating. Just perfect for enjoying some local wines or entertaining. Just like the sun will rise in the morning, you will almost certainly be visited by the wild Kangaroos at dusk, with other regular visitors including echidnas, goannas', thousands of small lizards and loads of native birds species including stunning Blue wrens and an occasional flock of the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos. Upon night fall enjoy the pleasures of sitting around a camp fire, soaking up the bushland serenity with the occasional sound of native owls hooting, whilst gazing at the millions of stars above. The property enjoys ample fire wood supplies for both indoors and outdoors fires and comes equipped with bamboo torches and solar tree lights for that perfect night experience.More

About the neighborhood
Just 1.5kms from Browns Beach and 2.5kms from the famous million dollar row at Island Beach. The Island House is just 700m as the crow flies to the waters edge, nestled into the natural forest far from any neighbors. Yet still a short drive of around ten minutes to the main port of Penneshaw.
