Wanting to enjoy some water sports, relax on a private sandy beach, or perhaps just enjoy a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the lake or perhaps you are a Snowbird wanting to escape to a milder climate then Casa Bella Vida in Osoyoos is the place for you.

There's truly something to discover here all year round. Whether you're looking to master your swing at one of the several golf courses in the area or skiing the powder snow at Mt. Baldy or Big White, checking out one of the numerous festivals around town, or exploring some of the 29 local wineries, which are just minutes away, you will always find something to excite your senses.

There's a private dock and a private sandy beach with volleyball nets, tether ball and beach fire pits for all to enjoy. The amenities include 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, a full fitness center, as well as a common are large enough to host any kind of special event. A meandering pathway takes you on a nice walk along the lake shore and to the many pristine green spaces that the cottages have to enjoy. Whether your desire is to play in the sun, the sand, the snow, the warm water, explore the endless sights or just to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the surroundings or perhaps to just take a moment to..... breathe!

About Michael Kalynn
My fiance and I grew up in the lower mainland and we've known each other since high school. We have 6 children all together and 2 grandchildren. We have quite a big family but greatly enjoy our family time. When we can we love to travel and we all love the outdoors.
Michael Kalynn purchased this House in 2014
Why Michael Kalynn chose Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen
Our family has spent many years vacationing in Osoyoos and we finally decided to purchase a piece of it to one day retire in. The 'Cottages' is a beautiful gated community that has so much to offer right at your front door, it really makes you never want to leave.

Nice get away from the hustle bustle. Very quiet
Perfect spot for the 8 of us (4 couples) to golf and relax. House was very well equipped.
Great house , nicely finished, very clean! Beautiful views!
Memorable family vacation
Absolutely stunning location and a great property for family and friends. We stayed there with another couple and our four kids in August and loved it. We have stayed in many properties in the Osoyoos area and this was our favorite, hands down. Secluded (yet not too far out) and quiet with great amenities on site. What seemed like hundreds of wineries within minutes. Michael and Sandy were wonderful. The property had everything we needed. We would highly recommend.
Thank you so much for the great review
Beautiful location and outstanding accommodation!
We had the pleasure of staying here for a week in August. It was great for six adults and three children (we did not use the fold out beds as the smallest one brought her own bed). The kitchen is very well equipped - and so easy to work in that we ate virtually every meal in the dining room. We did not use the decks very often, but only because the 2017 forest fire season made it difficult to be outside for some of us. The bicycles and kayaks were enjoyed by the "middle" generation and the youngest guests enjoyed fishing from the marina docks in the evenings. We all swam in both the pools and the lake! This home is beautiful with lots of special touches and our hosts were extremely accommodating and easy to deal with. Michael even sent a picture of the high chair so we could confirm it was suitable for our little one. We recommend this booking for your summer vacation or long term winter stay (lots of closet and storage space).
Simply an outstanding home with everything anyone would need.
A perfect 10.
Luxurious while comfortable, pristine home, directly on beautiful Lake Osoyoos
Casa Bella Vida is a fabulous house, and the owners are responsive, professional and friendly hosts. The pictures provide a good sense of the lovely furnishings and décor, which were comfortable AND luxurious, and the rooms are larger than they look in the photos. Everything was spotless. The layout is great; I particularly liked that that there were two sitting areas, and a door and hallway between the lower family room and the two lower bedrooms (which share a bathroom). Everyone commented on the comfortable mattresses. The gourmet kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, etc. and it was easy for all six of us to be in the kitchen area at the same time. We took advantage of the extra fridge in the garage as well when wine purchases were made at famous local wineries; and there is also a wine fridge on the lower level. The view from the house can't be beat, and this is one of only a few homes in the complex which are directly on the water. It's also just steps to the beach and marina area, and easy walking distance to the community centre to use the pool, hot tub and gym. We really appreciated the upper and lower patio areas, and the pool/ping-pong table provided many hours of fun. This amazing home, combined with the views, hiking and wineries in the Osoyoos/Oliver area made our vacation one to remember! I highly recommended both the house and the location.
Thank you very much for your kind review Cathy, it's great to hear that our guests not only enjoy what our place has to offer but also what the Osoyoos/ Oliver area has to offer as well. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our place and we definitely hope that you and your family can stay at our place in the future.
