Property description

This spectacular home has recently undergone a major renovation and is ready for you and your family or friends to enjoy. The property is nestled in a small community of 40 homes on the amazing Vaseux Lake. Vaseux Lake offers serenity and seclusion as you gaze across to undeveloped wilderness. Whether your holidaying in the summer to soak up the sun or you are a wildlife buff, you have come to the right location. Vaseux Lake is in the middle of BCs Golden Mile of Wineries, has a reputation as an amazing wildlife sanctuary and only moments away from beaches, hiking, golfing, geocaching, biking and fishing.
This 2400 sq. ft. home is on two levels with a large 90 x 90 foot, beautifully landscaped yard. The upstairs kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances. An extra kitchen downstairs for convenience while hanging out on the water front level.
If that isn't enough there is also a 260 sq ft free standing air conditioned cabana located on the lake level that can be added for an additional $200/ week or $40/day.
RV Parking and 220 outlet available upon request.
Summer 2017 has been booked off for returning clients, however 25% of this years bookings will likely not rebook. We accept wait list names and contact people of available dates as soon as they are available.

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 makes 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 and Tangled Vines) 10 minutes. to 20 wineries (See Ya Later, Blasted Church, Jackson Triggs, etc) and 15 minutes to 30+ wineries (Le Vieux Pin, Hester Creek, Burrowing Owl, La Stella, Oliver Twist, Silver Sage, Stoneboat, Black Sage 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 $200. 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 ($10/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.

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Michelle McReavy and Grant Temple are teachers in Surrey BC and have travelled and lived in many locations around the world. We presently live in Langley BC.

Why the Owner Chose Oliver, BC, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, calm, peaceful, scenic, relaxing and awe inspiring animal viewings. Canoeing on the lake is a treat as there is little fear of large boat wakes or challenges.
