About Linda Desilets

We bought our vacation home on Juniper Drive in Naramata in 2009. We have fallen in love with the Naramata area so much that we purchased another home near by and are now full time Naramations.

Linda Desilets purchased this house in 2009

Why Linda Desilets chose British Columbia

Our rental property sits in a forested area and has a beautiful view of the lake. We renovated most of the house when we bought in 2009. We added several decks to maximize outdoor enjoyment. There is a mature grape arbour, fruit trees, walking paths and lots of privacy on this property. Listen to the babbling creek below and the birds above and enjoy the experience of being in a private location in Naramata.

What makes this house unique

Because we live nearby we take pride in keeping the home clean and well maintained. We have the kitchen well equipped for cooking all meals. We pride ourselves on how well maintained the yard and house are. We hope you enjoy staying in our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week. We enjoyed staying at your beautiful house and are sad to be heading home after just one week. Hope to see you next year!

Ideal property in Naramata

  • 5 of 5

Just like the listing says, this property was peaceful and private, with beautiful lake views. From the house, from the decks and the lower patio, we enjoyed viewing the lake, the trees, the birds and the night sky. It was nice just to look at forest below the property, as oppose to rooftops, and there is also a creek below which was pleasant to hear. Even though there are houses on either side, this property felt very private for relaxing outdoors.

There were lots of great morning walks to do from the house, including easy access to the KVR trail. We also found a nice loop down the Old Main Rd., through town, then back up along lower Debeck Rd (vineyards, orchards, woods, stunning properties and so on.) Great for the dog in the morning before it got too hot. The kids generally rode their bikes to the beach at Manitou, but pretty steep coming back up the hill (it was easy to just put them on the car rack at the end of the day.)

During out two week stay, we enjoyed day trips to Penticton (great sandy beach, Saturday morning market, etc.); Summerland (Rotary beach in lower town is fun, Summerland Sweets with a walk over the KVR trestle bridge is lovely in the evening); nice drive down to Oliver and Osoyoos, with a stop at the Desert Centre; cycling the KVR was spectacular, particularly between the little tunnel and Penticton. Mostly we just enjoyed relaxing days in Naramata, going to the beach, renting paddleboards, playing Frisbee, visiting wineries, etc.

The house truly does have everything you need, very clean with comfortable furniture and beds (nice king in the master bedroom.) The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and we would definitely consider returning to this property next year. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful and descriptive review. Two weeks in our house gives you plenty of time to experience places and activities in Naramata and the surrounding areas. (I even learned of a new place to visit!) Telling us about your holiday will help other travellers who are planning a vacation to Naramata. Thank you for taking such good care of our home during your stay. We hope to see you again! Linda

We just returned from a great week in Naramata. The house was spacious, clean and the grounds are very well kept. The home is located on a quiet street half way up the bench and is very private. I loved the extra touches that made a real difference (toiletries, book shelf for the long evenings over looking the lake). We certainly plan to return!

Beautiful comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home. Very comfortable and filled with extras that you wouldn't find in a hotel. A 10 minute drive to Penticton and close to the beaches. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again.

Quiet Comfort - What a View!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could want - its quiet, its comfortable, and the view from the windows over the Naramata bench is stunning. The bed is so comfortable I am tempted to order the same mattress. The owners have supplied everything you might need, tons of extra towels, facecloths, and other toiletries, the kitchen is very well equipped and a pleasure to be in and cook. The dining area is serene with its long range view. Great TV, easy access wireless, loads of parking and dog friendly, especially with the KVR trail 2 minutes away. And a welcome bottle of wine was very appreciated after the drive from Vancouver. The owners were very fast to respond to all queries. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Amazing Last Minute Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked this last minute getaway with another couple to beautiful Naramata. Everything from arranging the rental of the house, to check out was seamless. The house was beautiful, everything we were looking for in a little vacation. Well maintained, clean, and amazing location. Just off the main road a few minutes away from some great wineries. We had a few off the most relaxing days we've had in a long time. A definite recommendation to anyone looking to getaway and relax.
