SPRING is a great time to visit the Okanagan Valley. The Resort is projected to Open on May 1st this year. Depending on the weather, you can enjoy a game of tennis, and mini-golf. The pools and hot tubs will open for the season. If you stay during this time of year, you will find the resort usually very quiet and relaxing. Great time for a relaxing getaway.

It is comforting to know, that you can sit out on the patio deck well into the evening and enjoy a glass of wine and a good book. Most of your meals can be enjoyed out on the patio depending on the weather, the BBQ is ready to go. Please pick up all your groceries in Vernon or Kelowna, before your arrival. The resort is usually running in full swing, with the general store opened and all amenities in operation. Great time for the kids to enjoy the 3 Aqua Parks in the lake.

About The Owner

When we are at the cottage we get to do the things we enjoy doing. I enjoy the hiking and the water sports. My husband prefers to unwind and read a good book. We usually prepare easy meals, and try to find some fresh produce from the local area. We love our time we spend at the cottage, it is always hard to leave this place. One of our favourite quotes is............ ' A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.'

Why The Owner chose Winfield

La Casa allows us to hike, swim, play tennis, kayak and paddle-board at the resort. The Okanagan valley reminds us of Tuscany, with it's warm climate, local wineries, fresh air and fruit trees. The amazing 180 degree view of Lake Okanagan is what sold us. We fell in love with it at first sight. La Casa Lakeside Resort, has many amenities to keep everyone happy.

What makes this cottage unique

Depending on which way you come in on Westside Road, La Casa Resort is situated about 30 minutes north of Kelowna, and 30 minutes south of Vernon. It is a perfect distance away from two main cities. When driving in from Westside Road, you come around the corner and there it is... La Casa. It resembles a little Village Community carved into the mountainside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Additional comment.. It was sent to me by email. We all thought the cottage was great and you did such a good job of stocking it and keeping it clean. I meant to say in my review about how clean it was but forgot! There are not many places you go that the towels even smell nice and you don't have to wash the cutlery before you use them, that made a lovely change.



Thanks again for being so accommodating, if we return to the Okanagan in the future, we will stay here again for sure.

Great home from home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here with my parents for 5 days and we were all really impressed. The cottage itself is so well stocked and Lina has thought of everything you could possibly need. The cottage is a good distance from the other properties, so it was really quiet, which we liked. The resort is good, the pool and lake made for fun activities but the store is poorly stocked, don't rely on this for supplies. Lina was easy to deal with and responded to our emails quickly. We did our homework about the location of this resort, so knew it was about a 40min drive to Kelowna/Westbank, so we stocked up on food before we got there, which I do recommend doing as the road out to the resort is quite long and winding.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5
To anyone who is looking at staying at this amazing cottage, I would highly recommend it!
It is a little bit of a distance from west kelowna, but the (extremely scenic) drive is well worth it. The cottage is exceptionally well maintained (we felt like it was our home away from home), and everything around it fits right in. The area is quiet, serene and peaceful.
During the day, there are tons of things to do!! We would start our day with making a cup of coffee and reading on the 180 degree view deck. Then we had our options of horseback riding, visiting a winery (although neither of us drink, this is still something we recommend too!), renting a kayak, hitting the pool or hitting the private beach (with water trampolines), playing tennis in the tennis court, doing some zip-lining (this was a bit of a drive though), or even just a hike! We would then come back to barbecue our dinner and settle down for the night. Feel free to pop in your favourite movie, or choose from the collection already there! There is even a convenience store close by to grab some snacks (or even dinner!). Relax without any loud party noise and rest easy in such a beautiful place. This cottage really has it all, and you will not be disappointed :)

Owner's Response: What a great week. You have certainly tried most of the activities in the resort, and in the surrounding areas. I personally have not tried the Zip Line Adventure Park in Kelowna, but I sure hope to one day. Thanks again for all the TLC. We hope you think of us again in your future holiday plans. Ciao Bella....

Family Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Spending our two weeks at Bella Cottage was the perfect family vacation! Our two girls loved the board games in the cottage for the evenings and sitting out on the deck and stargazing at night. This cottage is charming from the stones and shells on the outside to the pictures and decor on the inside, our family felt at home the moment we walked in!
This is the perfect size for a small family wanting some quality time away from the hustle and bustle of life! We enjoy spending our summer at La Casa with the beautiful lake, pools, trampolines, paddle boards, kayaks, tennis, volleyball, hiking, there is so much to do on and off the water! We look forward to next summer!

Owner's Response: Your vacation stay sound just perfect in every way. What an awesome time you had with so many activities to keep everyone busy. The Aqua Park Trampolines are a wonderful way to stay cool on those hot summer days. They are truly a favourite for the young and the young at heart. It sound like the cottage was a perfect fit for your family too. It is nice to know that everyone had a chance to unwind and relax in the evenings with some board games or just star gazing on the deck. Thank you for sharing your holiday experience with us, and we know your are looking forward to next summer...until then, take good care, LB

Lovely, quiet getaway with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5
Our four days at Bella Cottage were the last of our (early) summer holiday. It was a superb place to finish off our vacation. We found it exactly as pictured and described. Bella is a beautifully maintained property and the resort amenities were just the ticket for our 8 and 10 year old. The walk down to the lake is long if you take the switchbacks and steep if you take the dirt paths. We drove after the first time! The lake water was still pretty cold in June though the kids braved the swim out to the water trampolines and slide. (Note that kids 12 and under are expected to wear life jackets at the aqua park. Good thing we had ours along.) We spent a lot of time at the pool (perfect temperature!), played mini-golf, and got the kids on the tennis court for the first time ever. Our 10-year old is an avid bird watcher and was excited to see orioles, quail, goldfinches, killdeer, swallows, western tanagers and even a black-chinned hummingbird! From the cottage we also saw bighorn sheep and deer. The deck is, indeed, a fantastic place for meals and lounging. Because the cottage is fairly high on the hill, the view is amazing.
We did our grocery shopping in Kelowna prior to the 30 min. drive out. Westside Road is narrow, winding and occasionally freaky if you look down the cliff from the passenger side. I wouldn't want to drive it in the dark.
The cottage is well stocked with linens, towels, paper supplies, and kitchen utensils. We made good use of the board games. Washer and dryer were handy.
Beds were comfortable and the pillows in the queen bedroom were so nice we would like to know where they were purchased! Because the loft is open to the living area downstairs, we sometimes put the kids to bed in the other room and then transferred them later. In the morning (at this time of the year, anyway) the loft is light pretty early because of the sun shining in the high peak of the living room window. That wasn't too serious because our kids get up reasonably early but wouldn't be the best if you like to sleep in.
For a change of pace, we took the kids to the EnergyPlex in Kelowna one afternoon and they had a blast bouncing, climbing, swinging and generally being little monkeys. Well worth the time and admission.
All in all, a great segment of the trip. We appreciated Lina's good communication and quick deposit return. If you don't require two completely closed off bedrooms, the cottage is an excellent choice. Would recommend for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for describing your experience at our cottage in such great detail. We really appreciate knowing that there was plenty of activities for the whole family to experience. It was so wonderful to hear that your daughter was able to recognize all the different species of birds in the area. Thank you for mentioning that children require a life jacket when using the Aqua Parks in the lake if they are under 12 years of age. I will make sure to point this out to my new inquires. As for your question regarding the pillows on the queen size bed, I believe they were purchased at Sears. It was lovely speaking to you over the phone, which allowed us to book your time fairly quickly. We thank you again for taking such good care of our cottage, and hope that you will think of us again for future family holidays. Enjoy the rest of your summer...Best Regards, LB

Our stay at Bella Cottage was very relaxing. It was a beautiful cottage, nice and clean, just like the photos showed. The amenities at the resort gave our kids so much to do in the evenings. And we were still close enough to the city to experience lots that it had to offer. We would recommend Bella Cottage to absolutely anyone looking for a getaway, and we are already planning our next family holiday.

This would include the two heated pools, and three hot tubes. There are two tennis courts, a mini golf, a children's play area, and a sand volleyball court. The resort offers a half mile of pebble beach front, with suntanning decks and 3 Aqua Parks. The lake swimming area is roped off from the boaters and far enough away from the marina. The resort also has a private marina. There is a season general store, as well as kayak rentals and paddle board rentals. You can walk the trails in the resort, as well as the many trails in the provincial park at the top of the resort. It is a great hiking area.
