Naramata house description

Relax and enjoy stunning wrap-around lake views from the deck, the verandah or the hot tub at this charming century home surrounded by orchards and vineyards! Fabulous biking just three minutes away - suitable for recreational cyclists and avid bike buffs alike.

In summer, savour fresh cherries from two of Naramata's oldest cherry trees, right in your front yard. Grapes and plums abound in the fall. Kids will enjoy the swings under the large shade trees. This home's tranquil setting offers loads of privacy while being only minutes away from anything you might need!

Located in the heart of the Naramata bench, you are never far from a winery. Check out the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival May 1 to 11 - dates are still available at our beautiful home! Tour any of the two dozen wineries, and sip a new favourite on the deck while watching the sun set across Lake Okanagan. Sample regional cuisine at local restaurants, or just unwind with meals prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen or the handy gas barbecue.

This home is ideal for a large group, or two families vacationing together. There are three bedrooms on the main floor, sleeping six: two rooms have a queen-size bed, and one has two twin beds which can be combined into a king. Upstairs are one bedroom with a queen, and a large Master bedroom with a king size bed. Another room off the Master contains a single bed which can serve as a child's room. There is a common room for hanging out on each floor, as well as a full bathroom (each renovated in 2012). Enjoy your privacy, then come together for meals on the deck or at the family-size dining room table that can seat 12!

The village of Naramata is a nice walk or a short drive away, bringing you to Manitou Beach for swimming, or take your own boat out onto the lake via the public boat launch. Hikers and cyclists will enjoy the nearby Kettle Valley Railway trail complete with trestles, and spectacular scenery - just 3 minutes away! More rugged terrain is also right there for your pleasure.

                            The beautiful character and charm of this property was everything we could have wanted for our vacation. It was the perfect destination for our large family to spend Christmas together and share many laugh's. The house was very easy to feel at home with the well-sized bedroom's, great kitchen and dining area as well as many great sitting areas. Another highlight of the property would be the amazing view's of lake Okanagan, especially from the hot tub. During our stay we also had a chance to meet some of the local's while going for walks and checking out the local shops within the Naramata town site. We were all blown away with how friendly and kind the people are there. The property owner and manager were also very pleasant and kind and made sure are expectation's were met from the beginning to the end of our stay. The owner also did a follow-up after our stay to ensure we enjoyed ourselves which was very nice. I have a hard time recommending this property to other's solely to ensure it's availability to me next time, but I know that's unfair. I would strongly recommend this property rental to other's who are seeking a great vacation in the Okanagan. Sincerely, Shaun & Family

                            Had a great family time there. The house was excellent, staying there was like being in a home not just a rental . All 14 of us had a wonderful time and would recommend it without question.

                            The five bedroom, two bathroom character home had everything we needed for our family reunion. The beds were comfortable, the owners and caretaker helpful, and the kitchen easy to work in. There were lots of cozy spots for reading or smaller groups as well as the hot tub and two lovely decks. The home and lovely gardens are very private and the view is spectacular overlooking the lake and surrounding orchards. It's close to many wineries and walking distance (down a large hill) to the beach. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

                            My family and I enjoyed a wonderful two week holiday at this lovely home. Over the two week stay, we had anywhere from 6 to 10 people at the house, and there was plenty of room. This included a wide range of ages, and everyone was very happy! We also had a dog with us, and he enjoyed the fenced in yard and time outside. For children it is like a secret garden, with lots of areas to explore on the property. Our young daughter loved playing outside, and eating the yummy grapes and plums. The location is superb, with many activities very close by, or a short (scenic) drive away. The house was in good shape, with lots of nice amenities. All the rooms were comfortable, and the living areas were cozy. We all especially loved spending time on the deck, which at the time was covered in delicious grapes. The views were also incredible (especially the sunsets)! We would certainly recommend this jewel of a place to family and friends, and we hope to vacation here again soon!

                            Our two week stay in this charming character home was wonderful in many ways. There was plenty of room for three families and the fenced in yard was ideal for children. Loved the two verandas! We spent a lot of time visiting, sipping local wines, eating, etc at the one off the kitchen with the grape vines covering the arbor overhead. The views were spectacular and the peacefulness of the valley was so refreshing. Ideal for walks into town or along the scenic North Naramata road as well as the KVR trail. Can't say enough good things about this home! Carole and the property manager were so pleasant and informative. Hope to stay here again and we will definitely recommend it to friends and family.

                            Enjoyed a wonderful stay here in May. The house is charming, beautifully appointed, very well equipped and a perfect home away from home. It's located on a hill overlooking orchards, vineyards and Lake Okanagan. Close enough to the village to be able to walk but completely private and peaceful. Loved the view, especially from the hot tub. It made a perfect home base to explore everything the area has to offer, from wine tours to biking the KVR. A lovely respite at the end of the day. The owners were excellent to deal with as was their property manager who is a great source of local information. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property and hope to make a return visit sometime.

                            We stayed at this beautiful property in early July. We had 8 adults and two small children (2 and 4). The house was perfect; more than enough rooms for everyone, beautiful yard and hot tub, well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, and a view that can't be beat. We will definitely stay here again. The property is very close to beaches, wineries and orchards.

                            Our family reunion was perfect thanks to this great house and location. Despite spotty weather we made good use of the trellis deck and the covered porch swing. The kids were safe and happy in the yard too. Nicely tucked away on the village side and still walking distance to town and beach. We plan to make this our annual retreat!

                            What a treat to have come across "the Love Shack' on Vrbo to accommodate 11 girls for a bridal shower. Everything was perfect - the location - (so we could bike around to wineries) - the house - (something out of a fairy tale) - and Carole was also a delight to communicate with. The patio is absolutely stunning, also where we spent most of our time. (especially after our purchases of different yummy wines). We cooked some really good food on the bbq and took advantage of the fully stocked kitchen. There are so many areas that you can 'escape' on the property like to read a book under the cherry tree, relax on the yard swing with some tasty ceasers, or have a dip in the hot tub which overlooks pristine lake views. We definitely plan on making a return trip as everything was just pure bliss. Thank you for sharing a lovely little piece of paradise :)

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! I certainly enjoy communicating with prospective guests - sometimes I feel like I've gotten to know you and your family/friends. It makes guests feel like family! The porch swing is an awesome spot to relax, so I'm glad you enjoyed it and the other many nooks. We will be thrilled to have you back again in future.

                            We had a wonderful time! The pictures of the rooms you see on the website are accuate but they cannot compare to acutallty standing in them! You will be charmed by the whole feel of the house and surrounding property. When we arrived everything was clean and ready to go - the whole house is well equipped and there was NOTHING we needed. The beds and linens were excellent and there was plenty of room for the 9 of us. Even though it was November it was mild enough to sit out on the decks and enjoy the peace and serenity. None of us will hesitate to go back. Thank you for all your help ahead of time Carole and again, thank you for sharing your house with us - Well done !!!!
