About the property

PERFECT Little COTTAGE FOR one couple, two couples, or a small family of four.

La Casa Lakeside Resort is a little community 30 kilometers from West Kelowna or 40 kilometers from Vernon, BC. It's a gated community with about 400 cottages...on Westside Road.

SPRING is a great time to visit the Okanagan Valley. The Resort is projected to Open on May 1st this year. Depending on the weather, you can enjoy a game of tennis, and mini-golf. The pools and hot tubs will open for the season. If you stay during this time of year, you will find the resort usually very quiet and relaxing.

SUMMER MONTHS (July-August) Sunday - Sunday WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY. These are the peak weeks for the resort. With families enjoying all the amenities that the resort has to offer. These amenities are all included in the price of the rental, except for the kayak and paddle board rental which is offered through the resort.

In the summer this cottage shines like a 'Jewel' with it's many windows and vaulted ceilings. Waking up in the mornings with the first beams of sunlight shining upon the smooth, calm quiet lake, starts off your day.

It is comforting to know, that you can sit out on the patio deck well into the evening and enjoy a glass of wine and a good book. Most of your meals can be enjoyed out on the patio depending on the weather, the BBQ is ready to go. Please pick up all your groceries in Vernon or Kelowna, before your arrival. The resort is usually running in full swing, with the general store opened and all amenities in operation. Great time for the kids to enjoy the 3 Aqua Parks in the lake. Kayak and Paddle board rentals are usually available during the summer months.

This cottage has one large bedroom, with a queen size bed, a private loft bedroom with a double bed.

Kitchen with all appliance, and a washer/dryer, slate floors and two bar stools. Everything that you might need to cook a family meal is included. Living area includes lots of natural light, has a gas fireplace, area rug, and hardwood floors. Dinning area includes a large table with six chairs. The windows all have screens, and wooden blinds. A sliding glass door to the outside deck. The outer deck is spacious, and enclosed with plexiglass railing with an unobstructed view of Okanagan Lake. Outdoor table, chairs, sun umbrella and BBQ, are also there for your use. The sundeck has the morning sun to enjoy your coffee, and the afternoon shade is perfect for reading in the lounge chairs.

This cottage is situated just a short walk from the main pool/hot tubs and tennis courts, mini golf, and playground area. Cable TV and WIFI included.

FALL SEASON is a wonderful time to unwind in the Okanagan Valley.

Autumn are changing colour and the Resort is quiet again. The lower level pool and hot tub is opened until the October Thanksgiving Long Weekend. Time to relax and cozy up by the fireplace. Hiking and walking trips are the best during this season of the year. Harvest Season in the Okanagan is a tapestry of different colours.

About Lina Borzillo

We take great pride in our Bella Cottage. We fell in love with the view of the Lake at first sight. Making family memories and sharing time with our friends is what we love most about being at the cottage and at La Casa Resort. We enjoy using the pools early in the morning and hiking the hill side later in the day. In the summer months, the lake is warm and inviting for an afternoon swim. The evenings are quiet, spending time on the patio with a good book, and a glass of wine. One of our favourite quotes is............ ' A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.'

Lina Borzillo purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Lina Borzillo chose Central Okanagan G

La Casa allows us to hike, swim, play tennis, kayak and paddle-board at the resort. The Okanagan valley reminds us of the Mediterranean, with it's warm climate, local wineries, fresh air and fruit trees. The amazing 180 degree view of Lake Okanagan is what sold us. We fell in love with it at first sight. La Casa Lakeside Resort, has many amenities to keep everyone happy.

What makes this cottage unique

Depending on which way you come in on Westside Road, La Casa Resort is situated about 30 minutes north of Kelowna, and 30 minutes south of Vernon. It is a perfect distance away from two main cities. When driving in from Westside Road, you come around the corner and there it is... La Casa. It resembles a little Village Community carved into the mountainside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

These guests stayed with us for their second summer. They had an amazing time, and the weather did cooperate. They enjoyed the pools and the Aqua Parks in the Lake. With all the wild fires in BC, they had a great stay and only the last day was smokey for them. So happy you got to experience our cottage again for the second year in a row. Take good Care....

Beautiful Cottage With Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Our expectations were exceeded during our stay at Bella Cottage The cottage shows pride of ownership, is well cared for and extremely well supplied. It has an incredible view of the lake and is on a quiet street. Dealing with Lina was an absolute pleasure. She goes above and beyond what we have experienced with other owners from VRBO.

We visited the first week of April, and even though the pools and hot tubs were not opened yet, we enjoyed walks along the beaches and trails and the fantastic view from the deck of the cottage. Perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.

We highly recommend Bella Cottage and look forward to returning! Thanks Lina and John!

Fabulous Family Fun Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bella cottage for two amazing weeks. We were plesently surprised when we arrived on how clean the cottage was. We enjoyed the few little extras that were left behind. The location was great, just a few minutes walk to the pool and the view from the deck was fantastic. We also liked the assortment of books, games and movies. We enjoyed the many amenities that La Casa had to offer as well. The pool was by far the favorite spot for the children. Lina and John were great to deal with and were prompt in replying and very friendly. We would definitely book there again.

The house was very clean and well maintained, exactly as it was advertised and how we expected it to be. We found instructions easy to follow and everything worked as described. House has nice size deck with good furniture and BBQ that we used every day during our 8 day stay.

Ameneties within the complex like swimming pool and mini golf were good and all Strata staff were very friendly and helpfull.

We simply loved this house and would highly recommend it to anyone!!!

Beautiful Cottage with Fantasic Lake views

  • 5 of 5

This cottage could not have been more perfect for our stay. The resort itself has all the amenities you could possibly need. Upon arrival we noticed the cottage was spotless and was very well appointed with what you would need for making your own meals including a supply of coffee and condiments. The deck provides a lovely place for rest and relaxation and has beautiful views of the lake and valley. Lina was an absolutely gracious host and was extremely responsive throughout the entire process. Would definitely recommend this gem to friends and family!!

There's not enough we can say about Bella Cottage, we felt at home the moment we stepped through the front door. The cottage was clean, comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything one could need.

The patio view is amazing and we had a great time enjoying some of the local wines while taking in the panoramic view.

Lina went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday.

Our time at Bella was very relaxing and we look forward to booking again next year.

Teriffic Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was wonderful, the views from the cottage can't be beat! The cottage is stocked very well with anything you might need for your stay, especially the kitchen which was much appreciated as we ended up cooking several of our meals there. The La Casa resort is so beautiful and well appointed, the grounds and amenities are top notch. This specific cottage is positioned very well in that there are no other cottages directly below it so you have unrestricted lake views. There is a cottage being built right next door though, not sure how long the construction will take but it was noisy during the week (they weren't working on the weekend), which was probably the only downside to the property.

I knew the resort was in the middle of nowhere so I was somewhat prepared, but be warned the road in and out is very steep and very narrow and winding. It was a white knuckle journey for sure. Just keep this in mind and stock up so you don't have to go into town, I would not suggest staying here if you are wanting to go out exploring the area everyday. But if you just want to plant yourself somewhere and relax this is most definitely the place for you!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful write up about your stay. Sounds like the cottage and resort was perfect in every way. I'm sure that I did mention in my letter to you about the new cottage going up next door. I'm hoping it will be finished by sometime this July. Hoping the construction and the road coming in wasn't the reason you gave us a 4 out of 5 stars. We really do not have much control over these two things. The main thing is that you got to see some beautiful places in B. C. Thank you so much for taking the time to write and hoping you will come back in your future travels when there is no construction right next door. Please take care. Best Regards. LB
