About Dennis & Darlene Smithers

"Only thru adventure does one discover oneself" We are semi retired outdoor enthusiasts who love to travel. "Where we go, are dogs go too". That is why we established our "Pet Friendly Vacation Home". We are eager to share our home/property, newly erected medicine wheel and our music room. Come, relax and discover your talents @ Mesa Paz.

Dennis & Darlene Smithers purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why Dennis & Darlene Smithers chose Okanagan Valley

We are close enough to the Town of Osoyoos to enjoy the amenities yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature. We are a 10 minute drive to the downtown area of Osoyoos. We look over the Cascade mountains and Osoyoos Lake. The skies in the evening are filled with stars. Their are many astronomers in the area who believe we have the best viewing skies at night.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We fell in love with the property and decided to build a unique custom home to fit into the natural area. Our outside decks provide us a break from the Osoyoos hot sun and the late evening breezes provide natural cooling. Sit on the decks and watch the terrific sunsets over the mountains.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful home with the amazing view. We went down to Osoyoos to visit family and came back in the evening to enjoy peace and quiet. I can't say enough about the views...simply amazing. We will most definitely keep your place in mind for our next trip.

Perfect getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is beautifully appointed with unbelievable views and great hospitality. It is a breathtaking 10 minute drive to a public beach in the heart of Osoyoos that never seems over crowded. It was perfect for our family getaway where we could enjoy all of the attractions of Osoyoos during the day then get back to the very secluded house at the top of a mountain that seems to be about 5 degrees cooler than the hot weather in the valley which makes it very comfortable in the evenings.
