Overview

Okanagan Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 Comfortably)

Our craftsman style cottage is perfect for a quiet family getaway with everything you need right in the resort. We've had great reviews from our past guests and many end up returning.

With a beautiful unobstructed 180 degree view of Lake Okanagan, our cottage has a large deck facing the lake - perfect for watching the sunrise over the mountains, reading a book or cooking up a nice family BBQ.

You will be located at THE most convenient view property on the resort, literally seconds away from an abundance of resort amenities including playground, volleyball courts, tennis courts, mini-golf, swimming pool/hot tub and general store. Down at the marina/boat-launch you can go boating, enjoy the beach, play in the water-park (slides & trampolines in the lake) and easily catch lake trout right off the dock!

A great spa, boat rentals, horseback riding, dirt biking and hiking trails are minutes away while we are within proximity of fantastic Okanagan winery tours and world renowned golf courses.

The cottage has the master bedroom with full en-suite in the loft and two bedrooms with bunk beds on the main floor - comfortably sleeps 8. The main floor also has a fully appointed kitchen, living room and dining area. Internet and TV and resort amenities included!

We have a friend with a cottage just a few homes away that could be made available for rental as well... perfect for multi-family vacations!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the cottage for a weekend getaway with a group of friends. This place was perfect. Comfortable, warm, well maintained and clean. The deck, bbq, and full kitchen came in very handy. Peter was easy to deal with, helpful and always responsive. I would definitely recommend this pace and we hope to be back again.



The location is great if you are looking to escape the big city, but you should be aware that it is located outside of town and the road to the cottage is quite long and windy, so if you're staying here, don't plan on going in and out of Kelowna too often during your stay.

Great week at LaCasa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Peter's place in LaCasa. It was clean, well equipped, and perfect for our family of 5. We loved how close it was to the pool and mini golf. It was a bit of a trip down to the lake but the kids enjoyed the water trampolines once we made it down there. Peter was very helpful and responded quickly whenever we had questions.

The cottage was fabulous. We had 6 adults with 2 couples sleeping in the 2sets of bunk beds. They were surprised with how well the beds were as bunk beds. The rest of the cottage was outstanding with excellent kitchen and dinning arrangements. The outside deck was very pleasant with plenty of seats. The view of the lake was very picturesque. Thanks Peter!!!

Relaxing Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second time at La Casa; our first time at Peter's cottage with our 13 and 10 year old. Everybody had a relaxing time in this clean, bright, roomy cottage and Peter was good to deal with. Two bedrooms with bunks on the main floor gave our kids their own space. We enjoyed having the 2nd floor loft master area to ourselves. It has a great view over the lake but with that view comes the sunrise, bright and early. Don't forget your eye mask if you want to sleep in! We very much appreciated the comfy deck furniture and of course the incredible view down the lake. The deck is in shade from early afternoon into evening, which is very nice on a hot day. We spent lots of time at the lower level pool and tennis court, both of which are a 1 minute walk. We logged a lot of time down at the lake too, swimming and on the water trampolines. Bring your water shoes as the beach is rocky.

We stopped at Vernon for groceries on our way to the cottage and made a stop at the surprisingly well-stocked Little Kingdom mid-week for a few items. Our kids were thrilled to attend their first drive-in movie at the Starlight Drive-In at Enderby (about a 45 minute drive). We hiked the Mira Canyon trestles outside of Kelowna on a cooler day (about an hour, depending on traffic). Other than those outings, we were all more than happy to hang out around La Casa swimming, playing tennis and mini-golf, snacking and reading.

Disappointingly, the kiosk that rents paddle boards and kayaks at the beach was significantly more expensive than last year and there were only 2 adult paddle boards available this year. One very hot Thursday, the kiosk was closed with no explanation. Definitely a missed opportunity for revenue as many beach goers that day commented that they'd hoped to rent something. This obviously is outside of Peter's control and does not reflect on his cottage at all. I only mention it in the hope that the feedback reaches either the La Casa facility or whoever is currently running the kiosk. Please, more adult paddle boards and longer, regular kiosk hours.

We hope to return to Peter's cottage next summer!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, roomy, bright and well maintained.

Due to our weeks stay being inundated by the smoke from the Washington fires, we really appreciated the many amenities at LaCasa as well as at Peter's cottage.

The option of movies and games on the worst of the smoke days when we had to be inside, as well as pools, mini golf on the lighter smoke days were sanity savers. Had we stayed at a place with beach as the only option, we would have been stir crazy when the sun was obscured by smoke.

Peter was a great host, very kind and responsive to our requests, I would not hesitate to book again based on our experience!

Great family resort

We have stayed at Peter's place several summers now - Peter's place is clean and in a great location. Peter is easy to deal with. Our kids won't go anywhere else.

Beautiful location and even better service

  • 5 of 5

First I want to say how perfect this place is. It is impressively maintained, open, bright and sunny. The air conditioning worked terrific on hot Okanagan days. We really appreciated the location right next to the pool and other amenities, and we loved sitting out on the deck / lawn looking out over the lake.

We had great communication with Peter from the start. Unfortunately our trip had a glitch -- a forest fire broke out just south of the resort which took out the power to La Casa, forcing us to leave after only a few days there. This could have been a disaster... but it wasn't. We had great communication from Peter and he reassured us that we would not have to pay for the days we weren't able to stay in the resort -- allowing us to book another place (a hotel, which made me appreciate how much better La Casa is!) and finish out our holiday. He refunded us our money and our deposit the day we got home. Offering good service is nice when things are going well, but you can be secure that he will go above and beyond when things go wrong. This is the first time that kind of event has happened at La Casa and hopefully it'll be the last. But we can tell you that you can feel like you made the right decision booking this unit!
