About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located in the heart of the “Scenic Sips” ...a collection of fine wineries and walking distance to four of them. “Three Lakes” is the ideal location for your Okanagan getaway.

Walk down a picturesque garden path, past a lovely waterfall with plants abound to great you.

We are less than 10 minutes from the Kelowna and Vernon city limits 'Three Lakes' is nestled in the aptly named district of Lake Country. Perched above Okanagan Lake and a short walk to vistas of the beautiful multi-colored Kalamalka Lake and ever-calm Woods Lake.

Perched on the side of a mountain “Three Lakes” is a ground level self-contained suite enjoying mountain and lake views. You will enjoy large patio spaces located both outside your unit and around the yard; english gardens and a waterfall.

At “Three Lakes” you will be surrounded by tasteful décor, cork flooring, modern appliances, a king size sleigh bed outfitted with a soy based mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets and a 36-inch flats screen television.

Constructed along the Okanagan wine route, “Three Lakes” is only a few minutes walk from excellent wineries (Gray Monk, Ex Nihilo, Arrow Leaf and Intrigue) a short drive to world-class golf and the hot sandy beaches of three different lakes. Under an hour from the champagne powder slopes of both Silver Star and Big White Ski Resorts. “Three Lakes” is the perfect and affordable environment to embark on your Okanagan Valley adventures.

About anita

'Three Lakes' is owned by myself Vincent and my wife Anita. I own and operate a landscape/lawn care/lighting business and was born right here in Kelowna. My wife Anita moved here from Alberta and is a registered nurse. We are both local artists and enjoy nature and the outdoors. We love to meet new people, understand new cultures and travel to new locations. In fact, it was through using the VRBO site to arrange our own vacations that we decided to become members ourselves.

anita purchased this house in 1999

Why anita chose Okanagan Valley

We chose this location because of its privacy yet proximity to the city. It has wonderful views and is close to wineries, golf, skiing and the lakes. It is just a beautiful place to live and a great place to make your home base on your Okanagan adventures.

What makes this house unique

Tasteful décor, cork flooring, modern appliances, a king size sleigh bed outfitted with Egyptian cotton sheets and a 36-inch flats screen television.

Great suite with everything you need, run by a lovely couple

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Anita and Vincent's suite for 4 nights and found it to be everything that they promised. The location is convenient to the Kelowna airport, between Kelowna and Vernon and close to some of the best golf courses and wineries in the area. The suite which is in the walkout of their home built on the hill, overlooking the lake, was really clean, very well equipped, had a great comfortable bed, and was also very quiet. Anita and Vincent are a lovely couple and a pleasure to deal with. They are the perfect couple to have a rental suite in their property; there if you need them, friendly and helpful, but never imposing. Hardly even saw them except for when Vincent walked their dog. Even their young daughter is a born hostess. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Anita, Vincent and Marlowe (sp?)

nice apartment and lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

the spacious apartment is in walk distance to some good wineries. Anita and Vincent were very helpful with advice and carrying our heavy bags to the apartment. The kitchen is very well equipped, the apartment is spacious and the bed is a dream.

The good and the bad

  • 2 of 5

This apartment had it's good and bad points:

Good Close to three wineries (one within walking distance)

Large apartment - now has cable TV

Large outside deck

Bad This site is not good if you have mobility issues. Somewhat irregular steps totaling three stories must be climbed to reach your car

There is no insulation between the apartment and the owner's unit above. Every step echoes, and you are aware of any plumbing use upstairs

The deck is nice, but we couldn't use it due to swarming ant infestation

Poor communication from Vacation Rentals

Owner's Response: Couple from Florida, It was lovely to meet both you and your wife. I enjoyed our conversation. Sounds like the cup was half full for you. I am very sorry to hear that. We try and make your holiday a lovely one. We have posted that we are on the side of a hill and that it's not suitable for those with any mobility issues. With regard to noise we had a sound proofing insulation put in between floors and have not had any other complaints to date. We utilize the upper floor and the lowest walk out level is the suite there is also a floor in between the two that is rarely used. We are located in a lovely rural settting close to wonderful parks beaches and hiking trails. We have a beautiful perennial garden and sitting areas. We do have ants and many other insects with in the yard occasional a few might not be where we like but they are a natural part of the eco system. We do not have an ant infestation. Thank you for staying with us. I hope your future stays with other vacations rentals will be more suited to you. Kind regards, Anita and Vincent

Just okay

  • 3 of 5

The accommodations were adequate and the location was good for our plans while in BC. We seen online the unit had a TV and much to our surprise there was no cable available. A clock radio/ alarm clock would have been nice to have. A covering for the glass door would be recommended for privacy from the neighbors. Anita told us upon arrival to be sure to keep the door closed due the possibility of mice entering. We were very diligent with her request as we are not eager to have them around either. Unfortunately, on the last night of our stay a mouse got in and was scurrying around the bedroom. We chose to leave at 11:30pm and stayed in a hotel ( an added expense). After much discussion Anita offered us a free night and due to us not knowing of our future vacation plans she then refunded us $50.00. We stayed at other units that are of higher quality for a similar cost.

Owner's Response: As advertised online there is a television and no cable. We do provide a dvd player with a great selection of movies and both the ability to stream anything through wifi or hardwire directly for those who do not use wifi. Personally we do not rely on clock radios to wake us, as power surges or outages can occur. The window on the entrance door is a private space as well a tree blocks this area. You reported hearing what you thought was a mouse on the final night of your stay. We do take it seriously, as it is imperative to us as hosts to maintain the highest levels of hospitality and cleanliness, that which we expect for ourselves as vrbo users. Upon inspection of the suite there were no signs of mice, such as droppings, nesting material. The next guests stayed with us without incidents and no mice to date. Finally, we do try our best to provide a contemporary and comfortable vacation suite in a lovely setting for our guests. We did offer a free night stay on a future booking out of gesture of kindness. A free stay on your next stay is different that a refund. After reviewing your booking it was noted by us that you did receive a free night stay with your original booking already and this was brought to your attention. We also provided you with fifty-dollar monetary act of good nature. We thought this matter was settled and thus were very surprised to find this disappointing and impartial review of our suite. We understand that you perhaps let in or heard something on the morning your were leaving early to avoid highway construction. I recall the conversation we had that you would need to leave at the wee hours of the a.m. We tried to accommodate your interests and take the time with you at check in provide you with brochures and information to make your trip a wonderful one. We also welcomed your trip with a fruit and herb platter for your enjoyment. We know that if our future guests take the time to read all of the unsolicited reviews we will do our best to make your stay in the Okanagan a wonderful one.

wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place! Gorgeous garden, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable king-sized bed.....Anita's suite has everything! It is nestled into the hillside with a peekaboo view of the lake. There are lots of wineries in the immediate area and getting to the beach only takes minutes. Anita and her family were very welcoming and thoughtful. A perfect romantic wine-tasting holiday haven.
