What do you get when you combine a keen interest and knowledge in real estate, a deep love and respect for the beauty of the Muskoka region, and a passion for flying? Daryl Idiens!

Allow Daryl to change the way you experience your Muskoka real estate search as he flies you from Toronto in his Cessna 185 float plane. You will circle the neighbourhood seeing your potential home or cottage in a way that can only be seen from the air. As you land on the beautiful shores of Lake Rosseau, Muskoka, or Joseph, Daryl will park…not in a driveway…but at the dock of the beautiful property you are about to tour. As you breathe a relaxing breath of fresh Muskoka air, you forget for a moment the busy day and the stack of paperwork you left behind only 40 minutes ago. In less than the time it takes you to drive from downtown Toronto to your home, Daryl has transported you to the magical beauty of cottage country and you forget again… just for a moment…that it’s Tuesday.
