About The Owner

We have been coming to Osoyoos for 25 years. My parents retired here from Edmonton and we would visit them every summer. We originally bought a lot up near the golf course and planned to build. Then the kids came along and we realized we needed to be on the lake. We bought our first lakefront property in 1996 and several years later added this one. Both purchases were from the original owners who were still living in the homes.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Okanagan Valley

We have traveled and lived in, many beautiful places throughout Europe (Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Italy, Germany, etc.) and we keep coming back to the Okanagan. Osoyoos isn't as well known as some of the other lake communities but if you spend a week or two here you will have the answer as to why we choose to invest in our vacation properties on Osoyoos lake.

What makes this house unique

One of few private rental homes directly on the lake in a central location. Lake views both North and South. Walking distance to all amenities.

Nice slice of lake front paradise

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and five children stayed there for two weeks. There is a very generous expanse of private beach; a hot tub, spacious house, ample sleeping area, a water volleyball net, and a short walk to an interesting little town. It was a really ideal spot for a family vacation and we would highly recommend it. The couple of downsides were that the 'yard' around the property should have the accumulated garbage removed and the smaller room in the guest house needs some work such as a new blind and a better air conditioning set up as it couldn't be plugged in. The property has a lovely, laid back ambience, the house has all the amenities and we made great use of the huge front porch. It was a lovely stay.

A lil gem on the water

  • 5 of 5

My two boys wife and two dogs stayed here , it was a amazing lil paradise with at home feeling so very charming, and perfectly located step out of your lake front house onto a deck, into a hot tub a few feet to the water or your own lil beach fire pit or a two minute walk to down town ! I don't wanna tell Anyone about this place is fear it may not be available next time we want it, but had to let people know how great the place was and how great the owners were to deal with !! We will be back

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a little over a week, the location on the beach was great!! Very close to everything you could possibly need. Small hiccup when we first arrive and was rectified with in minutes. House was very nice, with modern finishes and relaxing. The only negative about this property is the guest house was a little dirty probably hasn't been used in a while, could use a good deep clean as per our guests for one night. once again I don't think you can get a better location then this and would definitely recommend to any family looking for a nice get away.

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came up with my young family the last week of June and had an amazing time. The beach is amazing, the main house was beautiful inside, the pictures don't do it justice. The metal septic tank thing on the beach wasn't that bad, it makes a quiet humming noise but it's off to the side so not a big deal to us. Property was very clean and the cleaning woman is very friendly. Owner is happy to answer any questions that you have. Will definitely be back next year.

Average Rental

  • 3 of 5

Location is great, right on the beach in central Osoyoos. The house was great, almost everything works and it was very clean. They should probably replace the couches, they are quite old and the pull out doesn't work. Otherwise, everything was great. The only really large issue is the septic tank in the front yard on the beach. The smell is obviously not good, and in your face at all times that you are on the patio or beach. I'm surprised nobody else mentioned this, but it is most definitely a factor. Osoyoos is obviously very hot, not making the smell factor any better. If the home owners were to improve on anything on the property, it would be to get that tank put underground, removed or at least sealed up much better than it currently is. The home owners are extremely nice and the house was otherwise great. So it is a shame to have this put a black mark on the overall experience. If this wasn't a factor our rating would go from average to excellent right away.

Owner's Response: We have been trying for 10 years to get the City to do move or cover the lift station with no success. We have had no comments or complaints about it from other guests. It may be that the seals on the lids need to be replaced ... this will be brought to the city's attention. To support our cause to get them to move it we would appreciate if you would also direct your comments to the Mayor of Osoyoos. Regards, Kevin and Cindy Primeau
