During your stay, you can fully immerse yourself in the island life with complete privacy and options to swim, fish and boat. As the island is only accessible by boat, you must have your own or rent one. For those who want to rent a vessel during their stay, the homeowners recommend that visitors rent from Gilbert Marina in Brockville. The dock can accommodate up to a 24' boat with enough space for another personal watercraft or two.

The Airbnb can fit up to four guests and has three beds and one bath. Although the rustic beach house is small, it's fully equipped with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. The home has total electricity, a galley kitchen that includes a small fridge, a wine fridge, a small oven, a hot plate, a kettle, a toaster and dishes and utensils.
