Awesome Beach House on Kootenay Lake in Nelson
average rating of 4.428571 based on 7 reviews

Loved the private beach, hot tub, and proximity to Nelson!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house for families with kids and pets - lots of room for everyone to spread out (5 bedrooms, all with queens, and one with an additional loft), beautiful view of the lake from the living room, 3 decks, and hot tub. Perfect (and safe) private beach for swimming in the lake right out the back door. Very close to Nelson (a 5 or so minute drive), which is a super fun and cute town. The house is a bit beat up/old, but that makes it easy to relax and not worry about much. The hot tub was a bit dirty and cold when we arrived - needed to call maintenance and then flip the basement breaker in the morning to reheat the tub which is apparently common - meant we could not soak the first day, but it was ready by evening. Other than that, it was a fabulous week. We would definitely return.

Unfortunately the place was filled with the smell of skunk the entire time we were there. We tried to cover vents but to no avail! We had several uninvited guests at night, mice were around in the evening and seemed to be hiding out in the vents.

A very old house which is showing it's wear and very little on the upkeep of the property, which is too bad, as it's a great location and beach for the kids.

Very smoky this year in Nelson unfortunately.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in making this awesome beach house on one acre of beautiful land a wonderful location for family vacations, couples and group who love nature. We always encourage our guests to call or email us immediately if there is anything that we can do to make their stay more enjoyable. The reviewer didn't call or email us any notifications during her stay the week of August 5th 2017. We updated the house on August 19-24th, 2017 with a brand new shingled roof, and we installed brand new roof on the cabin, a brand new roof on the carport, and have refinished the hardwood floors & repainted the interior of the home. The home is free of any rodents and there isn't any skunk smell in or about the home. The kitchen is immaculate with pristine black granite countertops, oak cabinets, a modern dishwasher, a modern fridge with ice-maker and a Jennair Gas Range. We purchased brand new queen size mattresses and boxsprings in June 2017 for the two very spacious Master Bedrooms and all of the five beds are very comfortable. The jacuzzi on the main deck overlooks spectacular views of the lake and mountains and has been updated. The home also features a private sauna. We hired a pest control service and the premises is free of any skunks or mice. We renovated each of the decks of the home and the cabin and they all have been newly painted in August 2017. We contracted a new property manager on August 28 2017 who loves attending to detail and making guests happy. The private beach is clean and the water is warm and shallow which is great for children. Our mission is for each guest to have the best vacation ever on this beautiful one beachfront property.

Prime location, beautiful/large beach area, and the house provides more than enough room for 9..

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent this property again. It is located close enough to Nelson for quick access to supplies but far enough away to avoid the common city nuisances. Our group consisted of 9 people (6 adults and 3 infants) and we had more than enough room.

Great Home and Property -Kootenay Lake

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to spend 1 - 4 weeks in the summer. My wife and I (seniors), celebrated a 70th birthday with our two daughters, husbands and four grandchildren (6-12 yrs. of age). The beautiful house had everything you needed, plus had a fabulous property on the water with great views looking down the lake. A large sandy beach provided great safe swimming for all (small children included) plus easy access for kayaks/canoes and larger watercraft. Twenty minutes by bike took you into the heart of Nelson while a 20 minute kayak trip took you to two beautiful secluded beaches across the lake.

At night you can sit in the hot-tub overlooking the lake or just sit on one of the three decks enjoying the scenery, stars and solitude. What else to you want for a nice relaxing, fun filled holiday! We are all contemplating a future return someday.

Beautiful Nelson

  • 5 of 5

This property was excellent, we rented both the cabin and the house which gave us plenty of room. The exclusive beach was perfect for kids to play and to enjoy the views. We certainly would recommend this property to people and hopefully be able to rent it again next year.

Starlight Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week at the Starlight Beach House and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is well equipped and spacious. It is asthetically pleasing but rugged and sturdy enough that we weren't worried about damaging things. The beach and views are superb. We rented kayaks from just down the road at Hellman's and that allowed us access to the sand spit which is just across the lake. When on the spit we had to remind ourselves that we were still in Canada and not in a tropical paradise. The enaging town of Nelson, just 5 kilometers away, offered a variety of delights. The hot tub is a distinct bonus. Be sure to check the heater periodically as it sometimes shuts off.
