This cottage is ideally suited for a peaceful retreat, with outstanding and unobstructed views of Lake Okanagan. Located 30 km north of Westbank and Kelowna, 30 minutes drive along the Westside Road, in La Casa Resort Development. It is also 7 hours drive from Calgary or 4 hours from Vancouver.
In the summer, you will be able to enjoy all water sports on site, with the warm waters of Lake Okanagan through swimming, boating (marina slots available), aqua-park, as well as onsite pool and hot tub. Others amenities at the Resort include 2 tennis courts, a mini golf course for the entire family, beach volleyball court, a marina & boat launch. If you are seeking a winter holiday, this cottage will be a great base to enjoy skiing at the Big White Ski Resort (1 hour 45 minutes), Silver Star Resort (1 hour 15 minutes) and Crystal Mountain in Westbank (1 hour), or nearby snowshoeing and skiing in the backcountry.
There are over 20 wineries, as well as cheese factories, to visit and taste their products, spread out within 30-90 minutes driving from the cottage. As well as several golf courses for another great way to enjoy the hot sun of the Okanagan Valley. Closer to your vacation base, you are only 5 minutes driving north to the Fintry Provincial Park, and 10 minutes from horse riding and ATV riding at Fintry High Farm. Or simply lay back on the deck with a glass of wine, overlooking the waters and boating on Lake Okanagan.
We loved our stay at the cottage! Rented it for a bachelorette party and it easily slept 6 ladies. The amenities are awesome and although you're a little remote you have everything at your finger tips! Do make sure to pack all your groceries etc before but the store is equipped with little essentials. The place is located in a great spot within the resort as you are half way between the lake and the pool, it's a bit of a hike but super manageable! The place was super clean, well stocked and the owner was awesome to deal with. Would definitely come back!
We loved our stay at this property at La Casa! This cottage had everything we were looking for and we weren't left wanting. The cottage was clean and spacious, especially for a family of 3. The cottage provided ample space for our week long getaway and served well both as a jumping off point for our adventures in the area and when we just wanted to stay put and relax. The owner was very easy to deal with and made our preparations simple. We reached out a couple of times to him during our stay and received prompt and helpful responses.
One caution we'd share is that the resort, including this property, is quite hilly and is not really a place to let young ones "free range." However, we easily took care of this by keeping our little one on the deck and she was perfectly content inside the spacious cottage as well while we were preparing meals. There is more than enough at the resort to keep little ones busy, including the pool areas (2 separate ones), mini golf, park area, beach and swimming, etc.. We made day trips to both the Kelowna and Vernon area and this usually took 30-40 mins to get where we were going.
Overall, a great stay and we will definitely stay here again next time we are in the Kelowna area.
We stayed in this cottage very comfortably with 6 people. The cottage was very clean and had a good feel to it. The resort is well appointed. The only disadvantage is that you are quite far from town, so really plan ahead and bring all your groceries. We would come back to this place!
Beautiful spot, great views, quiet, clean, all amenities. Not really sure what you could add to make it better. Maybe some bottled water. I was not fond of the taste, but the others with me had no issue.
We stayed at this cottage in October/2013 and were so happy with it! The owners are absolutely amazing. They were incredibly helpful with everything. The cottage has such beautiful views in all parts of the house. Each bedroom has a great view of the lake as well as the kitchen/living room and balcony. We will definitely be back to this gorgeous gem!
We stayed at the cottage for a week and really enjoyed ourselves. The location of the cottage within the resort is great and the view is beautiful. The cottage has privacy as it not located right next to any other cottages. We have a 16 month old and the cottage worked out beautifully with not many things for her to get into. Like that there is one bedroom downstairs with a full bath next to it and 2 bedrooms (although 1 is open to below) upstairs with another full bath. The deck gets alot and I mean alot of sun when the sun is out. There is a lack of beach area down at the lake and it is really rocky so bring water shoes. The lake is also quite a walk from the cottage so either rent a golf cart at the store ($88/day) or drive down to the lake. The resort has two nice pools for use too. If you are looking for a secluded resort, this is it. Its about a 45 minute drive from Kelowna and Vernon on a very winding road. Owner is very organized and easy to deal with.
