About Daryl Idiens

My wife, daughter and I have been cottaging in Muskoka for years. We loved it so much we decided to move up here 3 years ago. In order to do that we needed to adjust our careers to accommodate. I went from a professional pilot to a waterfront real estate sales agent that sell property with the use of a Cessna 185 Amphib

We have naturally moved into the cottage rental market due to our love of real estate and the area. We want to share everything we love about the area with others. We aim to help make your vacation as great as it can be!

Daryl Idiens purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Daryl Idiens chose Port Carling

This property was a really interesting project. The original owners started building as an R-2000 home in 1989. They finished the foundation, framing, roof, and one bathroom and decided that it was good enough. For 27 years the property was used without walls, floors or heating/AC etc. My wife and I saw an opportunity and wanted to bring it up to its full potential. Over the last 6 months of terrible weather the cottage has transformed from a tired, old unfinished project into an incredibly comfortable and elegant Muskoka summer home.
