About the property


Deer and other forest animals are your neighbours in this idyllic natural setting. Large picture windows provide fabulous views of Okanagan Lake, forest and mountains. Step out onto your private sundeck to enjoy the spectacular unobstructed lake view.

Private Self-Contained casita includes bedroom, bathroom, living room with plenty of seating (and futon for additional sleeping for two), dining area and fully equipped kitchen all overlooking the stunning lake views. The tile flooring adds to the Mexican decor. Perfect for the romantic getaway, or time with your young family.

Only steps from a large beach access - less than 5 min walk - to the crystal clear Okanagan Lake. Enjoy the shared beautifully landscaped yard with panoramic lake views. Unwind in the hot tub or sit and enjoy the outdoor gas firepit or relax on the several decks throughout the property.

Vehicle transportation is required. Grocery and other shopping is approximately a 10 minute drive. Downtown Kelowna is only 15 minutes away with award winning restaurants, stunning beaches, and entertaining night life. The Okanagan is also home to unbelievable wine tours and some of the nicest golf courses in Canada. Three of the Okanagan's superb lakes are within driving distance (Okanagan Lake, Kalamalka Lake, and Woods Lake) for endless water sports, fishing, and outdoor activities.

This suite's location is a perfect and relaxing alternative to hotel accommodation. Only 20 minute drive from the Kelowna International Airport. In the winter enjoy some of Canada's best skiing/snowboarding at the internationally famous BIG WHITE SKI RESORT and SILVER STAR MOUNTAIN - both within a 45 minute drive.

About Phyllis & Ian

We moved into our newly renovated home and built the semi-detached casita in 2003, when we became empty nesters. We always loved the area (Ian grew up in the house next door) and now that we live here, we enjoy everything this property has to offer with its privacy from the city, beautifully landscaped yard, forest and panoramic lake views and beach access.

Phyllis & Ian purchased this house in 2003

Why Phyllis & Ian chose Kelowna

We fell in love with the view of this property and take great pleasure in knowing that it still affords easy access to downtown Kelowna and everything that the Okanagan has to offer. We enjoy the solitude, serenity and privacy - while living in a friendly neighbourhood.

Our home and the property provide an unbelievable panoramic view of Okanagan Lake, that has to be seen to be believed. We never get tired of sitting on our deck in the Kelowna sunshine and taking in the view; whether it's winter, summer, spring or fall.

What makes this house unique

While renovating our home in 2004, we lived for 6 months in the casita. Although we love our home, the coziness of the casita is something we still miss.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the warm welcome. We loved our stay at your beautiful Casita. Thank you so much for sharing with us, the views are breathtaking. Looking forward to be back again next year.

Amazing long weekend getaway in a beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our long weekend getaway at Ian and Phyllis' guest house. The property is spectacular. The guest house has a true vacation feel with stunning views. It was modern yet cozy and had everything we needed to feel at home. We loved sitting on the patio enjoying the lake views and our daughter loved watching the deer, chimpmunks and birds on the property. While it is part of the property, the guest house is very private and in a separate building. We enjoyed using the fire pit and hot tub that is attached to the property. The community is quiet and serene. We enjoyed many walks through the tall trees of the neighbourhood admire the gardens. There was a park near by for our daughter to play. Ian and Phyllis were great hosts. The only constructive feedback - we were excited to go swimming in the lake off the dock featured in the photos. It has been taken down and the beach was quite rocky and not a great spot to take our little one swimming. We did enjoy sitting by the water and throwing pebbles with her. We will for sure be back. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having you and your family visit the Casita. Due to high water and flooding issues on Okanagan Lake this year, numerous wharfs and docks were washed away - including the one at the City of Kelowna park next to our property. We are hopeful that this might be rebuilt soon. We look forward to your future visit.

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Casita. It was a nice place to unwind after a day of touring around the Okanagan in the hot sun, with all of the amenities you would find at home. The home owners were also great, and mailed some stuff for us after we had forgot it.

The only thing I would note for future guests with babies that are just sitting and rolling is that the floor is tiled (which I didn't even think about when I booked). We used the spread out futon for our son and he was happy, but we just had to make sure he didn't roll off.

Heavenly retreat by Okanagan Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our days in the Okanagan Casita were the best of our recent vacation. We could not believe our luck with the wonderful views, the quiet location and the welcoming atmosphere that our hosts created. The Casita has every amenity you could imagine & more and it's only 15 minutes to stores for groceries, etc. Our hosts were very friendly & helpful with our questions and concerns and even gave us a recommendation for a nearby winery which we loved! We highly recommend this lovely spot to anyone!
