“Fantastic dream vacation”
For last 40 years our family spent at least a dozen of vacation on alcatraz island. Each time we come back we fall in love again with the beauty of the nature and appreciate it more and more especially the privacy this place offers. We enjoy all water sports, canoeing,kayaking,swimming around the island or just relaxing admiring all this beauty, especially the beautiful sunsets over the gorgeous lake. In near distance one can also visit Wreck Island with hikes through geological formations. The cottage is very spacious, clean, modern and comfortable. This place is fantastic and is great for all age groups,families with small or older children, young couples or even older couples like us today. We visited this place with or without children and we plan to come again.
Our week on alcatraz Island was a fabulous experience. The nature in this area is breathtaking. Water all around is making soothing sounds along with wind in the trees and bird singing. The cottage is very comfortable, well kept, clean and well equipped. The location is very private and secluded. We swam,canoed,kayaked and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. Vacation to remember.
“Wreck Island and the Massasauga”
Great location for visiting Wreck Island, the Massasauga Provincial Park, Sans Souci and for fishing! Alcatraz Island is in a sheltered part of Moon Bay and once you reach it you are central to many of the attractions in the area. The only cottage on the island sits on a gentle sloping hill with great views, privacy and great walking / exploring opportunities. The sheltered dock is suitable for small to medium size boats. Boating with a GPS or chart is recommended as there are plenty of shoals in this area of Georgian Bay, however, the easiest way to get to the cottage is to take a Water Taxi from Moon River Marina. The cottage has modern appliances is comfortable, clean, as well as spacious. It's convenient and reassuring to have telephone / electrical service; the cellular internet access is even better than in Toronto. We had our own boat and had engine trouble one evening, several of the local cottagers came out in their boats to assist (very neighbourly). We have rented alcatraz twice over the last three years and have never been disappointed.
Our group was staying at this cottage in May. The cottage was very clean and the scenery was beautiful. We were very happy with Yara's precise description of the cottage and she was very helpful in answering all of our (many) questions. There is plenty of privacy on this Island and its really a great spot for getting in touch with nature and watching the beautiful sunsets. The down side was the cost of the taxi-boat from the marina to the cottage. We thought the cost was a little high, so if you don't have a private boat I would recommend that you look into the cost of the taxi-boat in advance. Another issue was the roaches that came out at night, there were many of them and hard to keep them out. Overall we had a fantastic time on our relaxing stay and we would love to go back for another visit.
We spent a week at the cottage and it was awesome experience. Ms Havlicek was very professional, accommodating and attentive to our special needs. The cottage is well kept and well equipped. The place is clean and located on an island that gives you privacy and great retreat from the city busy life. Silence of nature was awesome and water around was nice and warm for quick dips to cool off. Highly recommended!
“Wonderful relaxing vacation spot”
I've been at this cottage for many, many times and I always loved it. It's the best place for nature lovers and for people like me who like the quiet and relaxing vacation. There are enough activities you can choose if you feel like it or you can just relax and watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The cottage has a comfort of everything you need and you really feel like home. I would go there anytime I can and would always recommend it .
“A vacation in paradise”
Our Family had a great time at the cottage, we spent few vacations there.We always had a great time, it is a beautiful place. The owners are great people. Cottage is clean and modern, lots of space.
“beautiful place to relax and forget about the world around you”
Who loves water canoeing ánd peaceful atmosphere will enjoy this very serene and beautiful cottage. All the confort of the city (running water, electricity etc.)but very private and wild nature on your own little island.
“Memorable summer in Georgian Bay”
We have spent the last two summers on this island. The cottage is very spacious, the living room is large, and the kitchen is equipped with all conveniences. There are beautiful views from both front and back decks for sun tanning and watching the sunrise and sunset. There is a great scenery all around the island, overlooking the open water and other islands. Can`t wait for the next summer.
“Above our expectations.”
Alcatraz was above our expectations. Perfect for our family. Swimming off the dock was awesome and there is little boat traffic so it is quite peaceful. Yara is an amazing and gracious host and made sure all our questions were answered, and we were well set up. With the bbq, ample sleeping space, hammock, canoes and kayaks it was a delight. The only downside for us, as people who sleep on memory foam, is we found the mattresses a little hard, otherwise a joy!
