Property description

This newly renovated character cottage with restored original vintage charm and added contemporary touches, is located in Osoyoos, in Canada's only desert, on the south side of Canada's warmest lake. The dry, warm climate is responsible for the countless wineries in the region. Wine tasting tours in the area allow you to try some of the best wines in the world while enjoying the beautiful landscape! The cottage is situated 3 blocks from the centre of town yet on Osoyoos' best sandy beach (and swim area) with gorgeous sunset views. The lake has a very shallow grade (perfect for kids!), is a very comfortable temperature, and the lake floor is soft under your feet. The property features a beautiful rose garden and patio out front and huge grass backyard onto a wide private sandy beach with flowing willow trees, outdoor beachside tiki hut bar and lounge (complete with fridge, bar, stereo, mood lighting, lots of seating, wifi, and plenty of cool tiki touches). As well, there is a huge 425 square foot lake-view deck off of kitchen, with top-of-the-line remote-controlled louvered roof and weather screens, for outdoor dining and entertaining with gorgeous patio furniture (featuring luxury sectional that turns into bed for daytime naps or sleeping under the stars). This four bedroom (sleeps 9), two bathroom house has everything you want for a dream vacation!
Maximum guest party size is 9 people. No additional guests overnight. No pets accepted. Weekly bookings only, Sunday to Sunday.
