Don't stay in a hotel when you can have an entire house to yourself! Unwind in the heart of wine country in an updated, lake view, vacation rental home. You are the only occupants of the house which is nestled in a park like setting above the quaint village of Naramata. Conveniently located close to many wonderful wineries along the famous Naramata Bench. As our reviews say, this home is clean, well cared for and comfortable. And yes, we have air conditioning!

Spacious, well appointed open plan living room, dining room and fully outfitted kitchen to make all your favourite meals. Lovely lake and forest views. A 40" flat screen TV is viewable from everywhere in this large open space. Secure WI FI and cable TV with Netflix.

Second bedroom and den have newer queen size beds with one full bathroom with bathtub/shower adjacent. Sleeps up to six people (in real beds!) comfortably. All linens provided. We provide bath towels, soap, shampoo and blow dryer. Please use our washer and dryer.

There is lots of outdoor living space. Relax on your choice of four private decks with beautiful views of Okanagan Lake, while sipping a glass of wine from one of the many nearby wineries. Newer four burner propane BBQ for your outdoor cooking. Choose which deck to sit on depending on where the sun is! Watch the hummingbirds, quail and other birds enjoying the quiet yard. At the end of the day take in the stunning sunsets over the lake. It's the Okanagan - where you'll want to spend most of your time outside!

This is a perfect vacation home to enjoy the sandy beach at Manitou Park just a 5 min drive away. Walk or bike (we have two bikes for you to use) the Kettle Valley Railway/Trans Canada Trail, with an access at the top of our street. You will want to visit the numerous renowned wineries on the Naramata Bench. Naramata is a scenic fifteen minute drive northeast of Penticton.

Please talk to us about bringing your small to mid-sized pet with you on your vacation.

About Linda Desilets

We bought our vacation home on Juniper Drive in Naramata in 2009. We have fallen in love with the Naramata area so much that we purchased another home nearby and now live full time in Naramata.

We hope you will consider our vacation rental house your home away from home. Once you have stayed in Naramata, you too will want to return here year after year!

Linda Desilets purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Linda Desilets chose Thompson Okanagan

Our vacation rental property sits in a subdivision above the village of Naramata. The backyard is a forested area along Arawana Creek and has a beautiful view of the lake. We renovated most of the house when we bought in 2009. We added several decks to maximize outdoor enjoyment. There is a mature grape arbour, fruit trees, walking paths and lots of privacy on this property. Listen to the babbling creek below and the birds above and enjoy the experience of being in a private and quiet location in Naramata.

What makes this bungalow unique

We take pride in keeping the home and yard clean and well maintained The kitchen is well equipped for cooking all meals. You are the only occupants of the house. We live nearby and are available if needed, yet happy to give you your privacy if you don't. Please read the reviews from other travellers. Our past guests have enjoyed their vacations at Hummingbird Haven Cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is so well equipped, and we delighted in moving from deck to deck, savoring the different views, with our morning coffee and sipping wine at happy hour.

I shall certainly be recommending your vacation home to anyone coming to Naramata.

Hummingbird Haven Cottage in Naramata - a peaceful and private lakeview house
average rating of 4.969697 based on 68 reviews

Awesome property.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like it was a home away from home. The whole house was well equipped, spotless, and had many areas to sit in the sun or the shade. The beds are comfortable, kitchen comes with all the utensils you may ever need....serving trays, wine glasses, big fridge. WOW. The view of Okanagan Lake is spectacular, with many great local wineries within a short drive. The little town of Naramata offers a few neat little shops and restaurants. Local advice at the Naramata Pub lead us to Joie Farm not miss this one. Didn't have the take out pizza but heard it was yummy. A short drive to Penticton market on Saturday is worth the trip, but the local little grocery store does provide a good selection of last minute items. Hummingbird Haven is awesome.

A comfortable and scenic home base

  • 5 of 5

This is such a sweet and comfortable home on a quiet residential street above Naramata and about a 15 minute drive from Penticton. So clean, well provisioned with kitchen equipment and everything in good working order. The owners' pride shows. We spent our days exploring the area and loved coming home to this cozy nest with seating overlooking the lake and valley.

A lovely home in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the town of Naramatta. Close to some of the vineyards and KVR is just up the street.

Was a shame about the smoke from the fires so we couldn't really enjoy the view at all but we all still had a great time.

I travelled with 2 girlfriends. It was nice that we all had our own rooms

Wonderful Naramata stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Hummingbird Haven. The owners Linda and Scott have made this a very peaceful and well equipped vacation home. Very nice to be close to the KVR for biking and hiking, very close to a multitude of great wineries and bistros, a short drive to Penticton and a variety of beaches. Wonderful coffee and sweets at the Village Grounds in the quaint village of Naramata. We would highly recommend this place for a home away vacation!

Very nice house and lot, in the perfect quiet location but close to Naramata

  • 5 of 5

The quiet location was perfect for our napping kids but also close enough to the beach, town and wineries.
