Property description

WE ONLY HAVE A FEW DAYS LEFT FOR THE 2015 SUMMER RENTAL SEASON (August 29, 30, 31, Sept 1st and Sept 6th to 11th) IF ANY OF THESE DAYS WILL WORK FOR YOU, PLEASE CONTACT US TOLL FREE @ 1-866-281-1899. WE ARE ALSO ACCEPTING BOOKINGS FOR THE 2016 SEASON.

We'd like to invite you to the Okanagan valley for your summer vacation and relax in our PRIVATE 3550 SQ. FT. 'POST and BEAM' HOME and enjoy our breathtaking unobstructed 180 degree view of the Okanagan Lake. Our home is situated high above the lake in a park-like setting nestled in the trees between Kelowna and Vernon. Imagine yourself relaxing in the hot tub during the evenings with a glass of wine staring at the stars or just lying in the hammock on the spacious 1100 square foot upper deck watching the boats go by. Maybe spending your days on the lake on our private beach at our lakeside cabin only a short 5 minute drive away. All you need to bring with you is your food and clothing....we supply everything else. This is our personal home which we basically walk away from as we move to our lake cabin during rental season. We leave most of our precious belongings behind for our guests to enjoy. (we only rent out our home from June 15th to Sept. 15th each year) It's like having your own 'home away from home'. You can even tuck your vehicles away from the hot sun in our 3 car garage. If you decide to bring along your boat, it can be safely moored at our cabin during your stay free of charge.

With 24 foot floor to ceiling lakeside windows, you will wake up each morning to a breathtaking view of the sunrise over the lake. How about starting your day with breakfast on the huge 1100 square foot wrap-around deck overlooking the lake. There are numerous hiking and biking trails nearby and a number of small fishing lakes within a short drive from the home. The home is located on a very private flat cul de sac where you will be able to walk or bike safely with your children.

If you are a golf enthusiast, there are many courses in the area. Spallumcheen Golf and country club (18 holes and an executive 9 holes) is only 12 minutes away.

Two world class ski hills (Big White and Silver Star) are nearby and offer both winter and summer activities.

The Okanagan valley is known for its numerous first class wineries. Many are a short drive away.

A small supermarket/hardware/home bakery (including a gas station) is 10 minutes away. Major shopping malls are 30 minutes away.

As a 'BONUS' you are invited to share our private lake front beach and dock during the days at our private cabin on the lake and only 5 minutes away by car. You can actually see the cabin from the upper deck at our home. We live at this lake front property during rental season. Being that we live so close-by allows us to easily take care of any immediate services or maintenance needed at our home without interfering with our guests' privacy. If you would like to bring along your boat, it can be left safely moored at this lake front property during your stay. There is no need to take it in and out of the lake each day and we do not charge any moorage fees. If you want to get away from the big city and enjoy some peace and quiet yet have all of the amenities you left behind in your own home, this is the place! Come and enjoy our little 'piece of paradise'.

NOTE: We offer one of the best values in the Okanagan valley and are normally fully booked each summer. Book early to secure the dates you need!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We moved to the Okanagan valley 10 years ago and built our 'dream' home in 2005. We have an amazing 180 degree unobstructed view of the Okanagan lake. We spend our summers at our lake front property (only 5 minutes from our home) which allows us to rent our home out during those months. During the past 8 summers we've enjoyed meeting great people from all over Canada, USA, and Europe.

Why the Owner Chose Kelowna:
The Okanagan valley is one of the most beautiful areas in the world. We love living here as it is truly a 'recreational paradise'.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guests who rent our home truly have the 'best of both worlds'! They will live in a modern comfortably furnished 'post and beam' home with an amazing 180 view of Lake Okanagan with the option of spending their days at our private beach (only a 5 minute drive from the house) to enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking, or just laying in the sun during the hot Okanagan days. We encourage guests to bring along their boats so they can explore the lake during the days and then leave it safely moored at this lakefront property during their stay free of charge.
