OKANAGAN LAKE VIEW CASITA

Kelowna House Rental Photos and Description

Deer and other forest wildlife are your neighbours in this idyllic natural setting. Large picture windows provide fabulous views of Okanagan Lake, forest and mountains. Step out onto your private sundeck to enjoy the spectacular unobstructed lake view.

Private Self-Contained suite includes bedroom, bathroom, living room with plenty of seating (and futon for additional sleeping for two), dining area and fully equipped kitchen all overlooking the stunning lake views. The tile flooring adds to the Mexican decor. Perfect for the romantic getaway, or time with your young family.

Only steps from a large beach access - less than 5 min walk - to the crystal clear Okanagan Lake. Enjoy the shared beautifully landscaped yard with panoramic lake views. Unwind in the hot tub or sit and enjoy the outdoor gas firepit or relax on the several decks throughout the property.

Vehicle transportation is required, however grocery and other shopping are approx 10 min drive. Downtown Kelowna is only 15 minutes away with award winning restaurants, stunning beaches, and entertaining night life. The Okanagan is also home to unbelievable wine tours and some of the nicest golf courses in Canada. Three of the Okanagan's superb lakes are within driving distance (Okanagan Lake, Kalamalka Lake, and Woods Lake) for endless water sports, fishing, and outdoor activities..

This suite's location is a perfect and relaxing alternative to hotel accommodation. Only 20 minute drive from the Kelowna International Airport. In the winter enjoy some of Canada's best skiing/snowboarding at the internationally famous BIG WHITE SKI RESORT and SILVER STAR MOUNTAIN - both within a 45 minute drive.

We moved into our newly renovated home and built the semi-detached casita in 2004, when we became empty nesters. We always loved the area (Ian grew up in the house next door) and now that we live here, we enjoy everything this property has to offer with its privacy from the city, beautifully landscaped yard, forest and panoramic lake views and beach access.

Ian & Phyllis purchased this house in 2004

We fell in love with the view of this property and take great pleasure in knowing that it still affords easy access to downtown Kelowna and everything that the Okanagan has to offer. We enjoy the solitude, serenity and privacy - while living in a friendly neighbourhood.

Our home and the property provide an unbelievable panoramic view of Okanagan Lake, that has to be seen to believe. We never get tired of sitting on our deck in the Kelowna sunshine and taking in the view whether it's winter, summer, spring or fall.

While renovating our home in 2004, we lived for 6 months in the casita. Although we love our home, the coziness of the casita is something we still miss.

A Memorable Experience

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented OK Casita while in Kelowna to visit family. It was a perfect location with beautiful views of Lake Okanagan. The property itself is very close to the city center, restaurants and Kelowna wineries (which are amazing). The house was very clean and well laid out with all the amenities to make it easy to get settled and just enjoy. The owners are sweet people who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Kelowna is a very beautiful piece of heaven to visit and the OK Casita rounded everything off perfectly.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5
My eyes take in the brilliant colours as I walk into the Casita. JOYful goose bumps! Have you ever had those? If I were to design a home that says welcome in a concrete way: This would be it, surrounded by stillness. I realize that what one hears is the absence of man-made noise. Gradually, nature’s calls drift into my senses – a bird’s song in the distance, crickets chattering to each other. Sounds of laughter from the neighbours – heard, enjoyed, but they are not seen – adds just the right touch to this early evening of tranquility. The clouds gently drift across the softly curved hills – a grey one resting on its journey after a late afternoon of showing us a promise of rain, to be delivered at another time. The sun illuminates the edge of the clouds in translucent white. Brilliant patches of blue sky appear, and crown the day. Giant trees protect the glass-railed deck where we sit. Their trunks are etched with lines formed as they grew into their ever-expanding height – nature’s umbrella with its branches high enough to provide a canopy of protection, yet leaving enough room for an uninterrupted view of the lake with its waves ever moving to the dance of a soft breeze.
“This is heaven!” I have to agree with my young friend. This is a perfect glimpse of created beauty enhanced by the hands of those who designed and bejewelled the lovely Casita – well grounded, yet with the feeling of a most-perfectly appointed tree house. The deck is a balcony suspended above the sloping land which is graced by trees standing in quiet contemplation. My gaze is drawn to the lake that is reported to have 270 kilometres of coastline comprised of nooks and crannies announcing that, indeed, this is 'S-Ookanhkchinx' - the First Nations’ description of what this represents: transported to the top end. I would say that Lake Okanagan transports one to the top end of serenity and, perhaps, it could mean: being transported to the highest level of beautiful!
I look up as I write this and, suddenly, a mist has formed with the clouds joining together to release the rain - a benediction tapping its message on the canvas awning above my head.

An awesome place to relax!

  • 5 of 5
We spent four fabulous days at the Casita, the place is quiet, warm, clean, cozy and we loved the Mexican style decor :), it made us transport to our home country Mexico. The view to the lake is breathtaking and the deck you have built is awesome. You guys have a lovely place that makes you enjoy Kelowna even more. We really enjoyed our stay these days in April and we look forward to coming back in Summer. Thanks Phyllis and Ian for your warm welcome and for making our stay so enjoyable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the OK Casita in Kelowna. Phylis and Ian are great hosts and they have a fabulous property. In the casita you feel very much on your own. It is cosy and has all the amenities. The view south along the length of the Okanagan Lake is spectacular. The access to the firepit and hot tub make for a very special touch to a lovely spot. We will be back!

Perfect quiet get away.

Our entire stay went beyond expectations. It felt more like staying with relatives than renting a room. All in all an excellent experience. Hopefully I can save up the money to check out their property in Costa Rica. Thank you so much Ian and Phyllis!

A place for total relaxation

  • 5 of 5
The Ok Casita is a beautiful place for a relaxing vacation. Ian and Phyllis are very warm and welcoming hosts. The suit is very well furnished and equipped. The view of the lake from the suit and around the property is spectacular. The most beautiful veiw of the lake is from the sitting area around the fire pit .....and when the sun is setting ....you have to experience it..it's amazing. As the Casita is about 13kms away from town I would recommend guests to buy the groceries before heading to the suit...
