This spectacular home has recently undergone a major renovation and is ready for you and your family or friends to enjoy.

Whether your holidaying in the summer to soak up the sun or you are a wildlife buff, you have come to the right location.

Why Grant Temple and Michelle McReavy chose Okanagan-Similkameen D
We stumbled across this sanctuary a few years back and when a cottage came available we quickly bought it because it was such an incredibly peaceful location with fantastic views.
What makes this House unique

Relaxing and enjoyable experience
My girlfriends and I rented the Vaseaux lake property and fell in love with it immediately. Grant checked in with us soon after our arrival and everything was laid out for us. The house was clean, kitchen well stocked for cooking large meals and enough room that we could come together or go off by ourselves for awhile. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and we will be back for sure!
We loved the house and location. Beautiful quiet lake. The house was very well stocked and was perfect for our big family gathering. The house is situated right in the middle of wine country. Not too far to head north up to Naramata or south down to Oliver.
Can't wait to go back next summer.
Perfect property in great location.
Some of the most notable and appreciated points of this house is the size. Each room is substantial from bedrooms to bathrooms to kitchen with tons of storage space. It is so easy to gather everyone together in the living room, the deck or the outdoors. It's all size large with really tasteful and thought out renovations. It is also really clean which is probably at the top of my list when staying somewhere. We launched our small boat in OK Falls which turned out to be really convenient and not a problem at all. The location is very central and close to anything you could want. It really is a great place to vacation. We all loved it.
Lovely in every way
We stayed at the Lakehouse for 2 nights with 8 adults for a getaway, celebration, and wine tour. The house was lovely, well-equipped, quiet, and an inviting, comfortable space. My experience with the owners was wonderful, they were well-organized and available for questions or help of any kind. We had an amazing holiday and the house was perfect. I would certainly return and/or highly recommend this rental.
Cindy, family and friends
Thanks so much for your kind review. You and your family are certainly welcome any time. We hope next time you can stay a little longer so you can take in a few more sights ... wineries that is.

Excellent Lake Front Property!
A fantastic place to stay. Large well appointed house could easily accommodate two even three families. Large deck overlooking peaceful Vaseaux Lake. Spend the morning wine tasting and the afternoon lounging around the deck or on the lake front. Kayaking and fishing for those inclined. We have spent the last two years in a row at this wonderful place and intend on returning again and again.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with us Shelley! We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Fantastic Place for All
Our group of sometimes three, sometimes seven people really enjoyed the location, the lake, the spaciousness of the house, the open kitchen, the extensive amenities that this place had to offer. Some meditated on the dock in the morning at the edge of the lake, some went for morning swims, and we had bar-b-qued dinners eaten al fresco. While we all had our own space; most evenings were spent gathered around the living room coffee table or dining room table playing card games. The house is well outfitted and we certainly appreciated the multiple fridges throughout the house and cabana.
The front and back yard are beautifully landscaped with ample room for a large family gathering or a fun competitive game of Bocce or croquet both activities are provided.
Several Federal and Provincial bird and animal sanctuaries border Vaseux Lake. This not only makes bird watching or wildlife viewing easy but incredibly memorable as well. A local heard of big horned sheep can be seen regularly in the hills behind the cottage and the wild bird sanctuary boasts 63 different species. Over 50 wintering Trumpeter swans are a common site from November - March.
Lake use is restricted to NON-MOTORIZED boats. Have no fear! The Skaha Lake (motor accessible) launch is just 5 minutes away in Okanagan Falls for vacationers with ski boats. There is also a large beach on Skaha for those that want to hang out and play beach volleyball or entertain those little tykes while they have fun on the massive playground.
We are within 5 minutes to 6 wineries (Stags Hallow, Liquidity, Wild Goose, Blue Mountain, Noble Ridge, Meyer, Synchromesh and Tangled Vines) 10 minutes. to 20 wineries (See Ya Later, Blasted Church, Jackson Triggs, Painted Rock, etc) and 15 minutes to 30+ wineries (Fairview, Le Vieux Pin, Hester Creek, Tin Horn Creek, Burrowing Owl, La Stella, Oliver Twist, Silver Sage, Stoneboat, River Stone, Black Sage, Church and State etc.). Several wineries have restaurants attached to them and all have tasting rooms (seasonal). My mouth is watering just thinking about these amazing places.
If you are into hiking, the KVR trail is just minutes away. Your first Geocaching location is within a few minutes walk, as are 1500 year old petroglyphs. Just to touch these spectacular drawings sends shivers down your back.
If fishing is your hobby look no further! Vaseux Lake is rated as one of the best large and small mouth bass locations in the country!
We even have an extra self contained Cabana for larger groups that need the space. The Cabana can be rented for an additional $250 / week or $40 / night. Just let us know that you need it and it's all yours!
For our RV friends a 220-volt RV electrical outlet is also available for a nominal fee ($20/day).
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR BOOKING
The big problem with booking holiday cottages over the web is that you never can be entirely sure you are talking to (and paying) the real owner. Look for those who accept Paypal – we do – which is one way to protect your payment against fraud. We also accept personal cheques and e-transfers. What ever you feel comfortable with. The Book Now feature is also available through Home Away.
Be wary of homes that look too cheap. Before handing over any money, speak to a real person. Always call, don't just email. Grant Temple is a teacher at Hazelgrove Elementary in Surrey, BC and Michelle McReavy is also a teacher at Katzie Elementary in Surrey BC. Please Google their phone numbers (to insure it is an authentic number) and take a few minutes to confirm we exist. The secretaries know we have a rental cottage and can confirm it is a legitimate enterprise.
Thanks for your interest.
