About Wilbert and Joka Borren
Wilbert and Joka both grew up in Holland and are the proud parents of 4 sons. Since our move to Canada we owned and operated a farm near Lacombe, Alberta for 20 years. We made the move to the Okanagan valley in the Fall of 2011. Since we have a real heart for people, we decided to share this beautiful property with you by offering our questhouse for rent.
Wilbert and Joka Borren purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Wilbert and Joka Borren chose Penticton
The few times we spent our summer holidays in the Okanagan, we dreamed of living here. The Okanagan valley has its own unique warm climate with mild winters. This climate is perfect for growing wine grapes. With farming in our blood it only seemed natural to look for a farm in the Okanagan. Our property is beautifully located just minutes outside of the city of Penticton. We are at the start of the Naramata Bench Winery Route, where many award-winning wineries can be found.
What makes this Cottage unique
The close proximity to Penticton and yet the private location of the vineyard opens up a myriad of possibilities for your getaway. A stroll through the vineyard, a bike ride on the KVR trail or a walk to our neigbouring winery and creamery where you can enjoy a glass of wine with cheese on the patio. These are just a few of the many possibilities. Penticton has all the amenities of a city and we are within minutes of downtown where life entertainment can be enjoyed all summer long.

Our son and daughter-in-law recommended “Four Shadows”...so glad we believed them. We were won over from the moment we saw the charming cottage both inside and out ...and...were not disappointed . With its peaceful setting, breathtaking views and welcoming hosts our only regret was ... it was over far too soon!

A great property, a great location and an even better property owners. The Borrens are the best.
Linda and I spent a week (May 5 - May 12) at Four Shadows Vineyard Rentals. We had an amazing time. The view from the house into the vineyard is breath taking.
Wilbert & Joka were the perfect hosts. Any questions or concerns that we might have had was dealt with in a very professional and timely manner.
If Penticton is in anyone's future plans, don't miss Four Shadows Vineyard Vacation Rental. Thank you again.
Lovely quiet and private getaway
This private guesthouse looks even better than the pictures! Removed from the main house, you really do get your privacy here. Comfortable and quaint, the guesthouse has almost everything you need, including private deck and BBQ. And farm fresh eggs in the fridge when you arrive! Great location too! Be sure to check out the wine and cheese tasting at the nearby (just down the hill) Upper Bench Estate Winery.
I would've loved to give this place five out of five stars, but there were a couple things missing. There are no games to play, which would've been nice. And no extra blankets, especially for those wanting to curl up on the couch. And no cleaning products to speak of, and we ran out of aluminum foil (BBQ) and plastic wrap the first meal. Made food storage a challenge. Just some little things. Otherwise the guesthouse is fabulous and we felt very welcome. Definitely recommend. Thank you for having us!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.
We take great pride in adding little details for our guests to enjoy and supplying them with the basic needs. We are very sorry to hear that you ran out of certain items and we apologize for that.
We always remind our guests that we are only a phone call away if anything is needed or any questions arise.
Great space in a beautiful location
This place was perfect. We planned a short visit to the Okanagan to bike around and visit some wineries and chose this location because it was close to the KVR Trail and near a number of wineries. The house was in a quiet location, very clean, and was everything we were hoping for. We will definitely be returning and hope to stay here again if it is available.
Comfort and privacy, the best.
We love this place! Our second stay this season, our hosts provide everything we need, plus privacy and great view and location. Thank you!
This is our third time staying at Four Shadows and we will return. Yoka and Wilbert and of course Floyd (the family dog) are always so welcoming. The property is located very centrally, is quiet and the kitchen is well equipped. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Penticton area.
Our vacation rental is located on the edge of Penticton at the start of the Naramata Bench wineries, surrounded by orchards and vineyards.
