I am a Chartered Accountant, originally from Alberta. Born and raised in Lethbridge and worked in the Calgary oil patch for 10 years in the 1980's. I spent the 90's living and working in the states, Omaha,NE, Birmingham AL, and most of it in Houston TX. I love sailing, golfing, tennis, waterskiing, scuba diving and being outdoors. For the last 15 years I have been selling real estate in Kelowna and loving the Okanagan lifestyle.
Patricia Livingstone purchased this cottage in 2006
I have 2 sons, now 28 and 26. They love the lake and in the summer time they waterski and wakeboard. The cottage is perfect for enjoying water sports. The lake is quieter at Secret Point as it is away from all the summer tourists. The water is crystal clear and inviting.
The dock is a great place to relax and suntan.
Wow - what a gorgeous vacation! The property is stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We have already told two couples about this who will be looking for summer rentals.
We will keep in touch, as we feel we have found a gem!!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage last summer. The location was great, it was very peaceful. We enjoyed the visiting the wineries and golf courses in the area. The cottage was set up well for entertaining, we had family and friends over for dinner a few times and everyone was very comfortable. The views from the balconies and windows over looking the lake were breathtaking. We enjoyed using the dock for swimming, fishing and some of our friends were able to pull up with their boat and use the buoy for a visit. We will definately be recommending the cottage to friends and family and will be back again in the near future.
Spent the weekend with relaxing with my wife, we just enjoyed the sites and quiet relaxing atmosphere, we stayed 3 nights, next time will be 7. Cabin is stocked very well with all dishes you will need. Very comfy and cozy!! Will be returning!!
Things to note: Boat lift was broken and then repaired as much as it could be 5 days into our stay. Its a hand crank boat lift... and is completely twisted. We were told the repair was as good as it could be without divers to fix the twist in it but we should be ok to use it. Arrived Saturday and the poison ivy/oak on the lower deck was finally cut back on the following Friday while we were out. It is a 20 min windy narrow road from West Kelowna and there is nothing but an address on a stick to locate the property. There is no way to turn around in the parking area so don't go down the drive way if you have a trailer of any kind or you will have to back it back up the hill and onto the highway. Once there, if you can find parking, you can off load your coolers and suit cases in the loading area but be aware, you have to haul everything down a half dozen steps to a landing followed by another dozen steps before you get to the level the cottage is on. I wouldn't put any one on the old futon couch. There is no local channel TC, just apple TV and that was intermittent. There is also a constant boil water advisory so bring water. You can't walk any where. Have to drive. Closest boat launch is Fintry or Bear Creek Provincial parks
I had an absolutely fabulous time here! We stayed June 5-9th and it was lovely because the area was so quiet and even though the cottages are so close together you hardly noticed. The cottage was adorable, beautifully decorated. It got hot at times but there were several fans inside that helped a lot. I would definitely stay here again!
Unfortunately there was a boil water advisory and the (only) road to Kelowna was closed at certain times of the day, which I wish I had known (but that is certainly no fault of this location/listing)
We stayed in these cottages for 8 nights. We began the trip in a cottage a few doors down, managed by the owner, but the Internet had mistakenly been cancelled and the owner was quick to place us in her own rental which had just become available.Everything was as the photos and description described and we had GPS and so had no problems finding the location, which is, as described, 'secret' and as with many of the other properties, not visible from the road.
The cottage was lovely and quiet and had been cleaned and prepared for our arrival. It has a full kitchen and plenty of towels and clean linen, as well as a washer/dryer with laundry soap. After the initial Internet mishap, the owner was quick to call me to sort it out and offer her own cottage. She then kindly returned our damage deposit a week before the end of our trip, together with a small refund to the rate for our trouble, without any requests on our part. I found her most accommodating, easy to reach and easy to speak to.
I believe we had the entire complex to ourselves and we ventured out very little just enjoying that the weather was mild enough to leave the window open to hear the lake and quiet enough to enjoy it. It was really lovely. I would recommend this to anyone and hope perhaps to come back ourselves.
This cottage is beautiful and we are very disappointed our stay was not more enjoyable.
The directions given included signs that do not exist. Be aware these are extremely hard to find and there is no sign indicating where they are.
Upon arrival we noticed the cabin was very dusty, which we expected in a secluded cottage, however the soap and toothpaste hardened in the sinks and bathtub were quite gross.
About an hour after going to sleep the first night I was woken up by large beetle like bugs crawling over our bed and up my arms. Upon discussing this with the owner in the morning she laughed and said they were just stink bugs. She then proceeded to send me an e-mail with instructions on how to get rid of them and said they were harmless. They were everywhere in the cabin, especially on the heaters. I advised the owner we wanted to leave and with a refund. She said she couldn't offer a full refund as she had turned down another renter and still had to pay her cleaner. I found this completely unreasonable as the cottage was full of bugs - harmless or not this was disgusting!
I am sure this is a lovely place to stay when it is not the season for these bugs. I would not recommend renting from this owner as she is quite unreasonable.
