Overview

About the property

2 bedroom+den(3 beds), 2 full bathrooms, lake view, clean, comfortable, private

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.

Large master bedroom with king size sleigh bed, private deck and spacious en-suite with shower. Lie in bed and look at the lake. 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.

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 Winery....do 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.

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.

Absolutely wonderful! Private! Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay at this extremely well-equipped, clean home. It is situated on a private, peaceful lot. The vegetation is interesting and we loved watching the quails. Linda and Scott are "johnny-on-the-spot" to address any of your questions/concerns. They give you privacy but you know they have your best interest/comfort in mind. Highly recommended!

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

I will start with the only negative I have, that is, the refund of the damage deposit. I wish that VRBO would notify(by email) once the refund is made. This improvement would make things easier for seniors like me.

'Better than expected' really is heartfelt. It was a joy in communicating with Linda and Scott. Once we got there, the property was neat on the outside, clean on the inside(this was the first property that we did not have to wash dishes etc. before use), all appliances and utensils were first class. Linda and Scott thought of everything including extra toothbrushes in case you forgot yours. The location was ideal in that the property had views of the lake through the evergreens. We will return.

Additional to above, we had the pleasure to meet Linda and Scott. A real nice couple that are friendly, easy to talk to and very considerate for their guests' comfort. Thanks Linda and Scott for the pleasure.

Catherine and John

Owner's Response: Updated reply: Hi John, Thank you for contacting me to let me know your deposit was returned onto your credit card two days after your departure. As you don't do online banking you had to wait for your statement to come in the mail before you knew the actual date it was returned. Original reply: Hi John and Catherine, It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. Thank you for your glowing review of our property. We do our best to make it clean and comfortable for your vacation. We want our guests to come back again! As for the refund of the damage deposit - I initiate the return through VRBO as soon as cleaning is completed when guests leave. It should take 5 to 7 days to go back onto the credit card used when the booking is first made. We hope to have you back again on your next trip to Naramata, B.C.
