About the property

Private Island with Electricity and Septic - Cell phone reception/internet

Make your reservations for the 2018 season!

**Please note that while the island sleeps six, this rental is for COUPLES ONLY (2 people at a time maximum)**

This summer, swap your typical cottage rental for the luxury of renting your very own private island. For a full week, a month or the whole season, envision yourself making memories on the speckled granite face of Deepwater Island. It is the ultimate home away from home with modern amenities of a city-dweller’s abode on three-fourths acre of personal paradise.

Located in a protected bay and surrounded by the Massassauga Provincial Park, Deepwater Island enjoys privacy and serenity that is usually only experienced much farther north. But the easily accessed island is only a two-hour drive from Toronto or a short flight from major cities in Canada and the United States. We can also help arrange a water taxi for your party.

After a 20-minute ride from the marina, you’ll have your first glimpse of Deepwater Island’s charming quarters. Inside you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen alongside the dining room with cathedral ceilings, creating the perfect pair for intimate dinner parties. A granite fireplace elegantly illuminates the 360-degree view of the surrounding waters from the elevated vantage point of the cottage. Excellent 3G cell phone reception gets you online and connected with the outside world.

In the waters at the rocky shore, a kayak and two canoes are at the sole disposal of the explorers in your crew. Paddle over to a nearby island and restock on groceries and wine – it’s all right there. For the laid-back members of the bunch, two large wooden decks offer the makings of an outdoor lounge. While you’re there, fire up the BBQ and grill some seasonal delights – perhaps something you caught that day!

This perfect retreat for two is $ 2,500/week in our low season: May, June, Sept and Oct and High Season:$2,850/week in July and August for the whole island. This summer, rediscover Georgian Bay.

Getting to Deepwater Island is half the fun!

We can help arrange a round-trip water taxi from the marina directly to the island or launch your own boat from several marinas that are only 15-25 minutes away.

About Chris Krolow

I've been an 'Islomaniac' (one who loves islands) for as long as I can remember.

Why Chris Krolow chose Parry Sound

When I first set eyes on Deepwater Island I knew I had found the perfect getaway. Located in the Sans Souci area of Georgian Bay, this two thirds of an acre private island is surrounded by the Massasauga Provincial Park and is only minutes away from amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

- Five minutes from a marina, liquor store and restaurant

- 2 hour drive from Toronto

- 25 minutes from Moose Deer Point Marina

- 15 minutes from Woods Bay Marina

- 25 minutes from Parry Sound

- located in the sought after Sans Souci area of Georgian Bay

- Surrounded by the Massausaga Provincial Park, so neighbours are minimal

- Since the island is small and has high elevations, you have beautiful water views from everywhere

- The house is serviced by hydro through submarine cables which means you can enjoy all the amenities that you would on the mainland.

- You have the entire island to yourself

Great to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing Island and cottage! We were nervous about this at first since we had never booked a rental on one of these sites before. But, the process was easy and everything worked out. We took the water taxi from Woods Bay Marina to the Island, which took about 20 minutes. The boat wasn't the greatest, but it fit the two of us, our two big dogs, and all of our luggage and groceries. In the future, I might try a different water taxi service (such as Georgian Bay Marina which we used once to go into Parry Sound or Moon River).

The cottage had everything we needed and we weren't left wanting for anything (except maybe a queen sized bed!). The home is beautiful, clean, and spacious. There are views from everywhere in the family room, dining, room, and kitchen so even if you have to eat inside, you can still see the water. There were even binoculars to use to see the boats and wildlife passing by. It was very quiet, with only the occasional boat or fishermen boating by.

The Island is spacious enough to roam a little and check out all of the different little swimming holes and areas. If the wind picks up on one side of the Island, we could go sit on the back dock or the chairs on the other side of the Island. The dogs loved trekking through the water along the edges of the Island!

We brought our inflatable paddle boards with us so did a couple of paddles a day to check out all of the different islands and areas around the Island. The whole week was wonderful and we will definitely stay again if we can!!

Such a great week

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time on the island. The best no stress vacation ever. Nothing to worry about, nothing to do but enjoy! Swimming all around, kayaking, and cooking. The house is AMAZING. Seriously as close to our dream house as we can imagine. Thanks so much!

Unforgettable experience

  • 5 of 5

A unique place, where you can feel that the world is made for you or at least that you are a significant part of it. All very harmonious and proportionate - rocks, plants, house with its magnificent design and the exclusive stuff. In reality, they are even better than their photo. Actually, it is the first place I really miss and would like to see again.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We've rented islands before but a little further north on Georgian Bay. Deepwater island really feels like you are on an island. You can see fantastic water views from pretty much anywhere on the island. The kitchen is amazing and the the whole living space is comfortable and feel like a pricey lodge at night with the spectacular lighting. It took us 2 hours to drive to Woods Bay Marina from Mississauga and another 20 minutes with the water taxi. Excellent fishing and so many canoe/kayak routes there is no time to get bored.
