About Katharina Riedener

We fell in love with Osoyoos about 10 years ago when vacationing here from Alberta. We are originally from Switzerland and Osoyoos reminded us of Northern Italy where we used to spend a lot of time. We made the dream come through and moved here in 2004. We love to ride the mountain roads on our motorcycles. Cooking for and hosting guests has been one of our passions fo rmany years. So you will not be dissapointed!

Katharina Riedener purchased this house in 2003

Why Katharina Riedener chose Okanagan Valley

We fell in love with the quiet north end of the lake, where your views are vineyards and mountains. The conditions are perfect for water skiing, boarding, swimming etc. In the morning the lake is often like glass! This property is ideal for people that like privacy and some quiet time as well as the fun of being on the lake!

What makes this house unique

our house is about the closest you can be on the water, open your eyes in the morning and you think you are on a cruise ship. Our yard offers complete privacy from the neighbours and street.

The calm water on the north side is very suitable for skiing and other water sports as well as swimming. Bird watching is great, Eagles and Ospreys frequently visit the trees in the yard.

Nice House on the north end of the lake

  • 4 of 5

The hosts were perfect - Katarina and Ehrhardt were waiting for us when we arrived. Great people. This is a new house; it was certainly designed with very high end features and lots of options - the open concept, sand stone floors, gourmet kitchen, eating bar, etc.

Location - you are at the north end of the lake, just off the highway. You are very close to Burrowing Owl, Black Hills, etc. It was a breeze to ride bike to wineries or along the Okanagan River - very nice, only a short ride up Hwy and then all back roads. It is about 8-10 minute drive into town.

This is a 4 bedroom, two story house - on top floor, a fabulous master with en-suite, beautiful view of the lake then a second bedroom on back of house with view of the highway and main bathroom with shower - there is also a roof top deck with hot tub - you must go through master bedroom to access it or use out side spiral staircase. Downstairs there are two other bedrooms, one off dining room and a two piece powder room - one negative, we found having no shower on main tough as everyone downstairs had to use upstairs shower. All the beds were very comfortable. They have installed a great entertainment system with large Flat screen satellite TV - just make sure to learn how the system works for speakers throughout the house and TV channels. No iPod dock.

Kitchen is amazing, very well stocked with every possible tool or machine was available. Some very nice touches as the raised pulled out garbage can was very cool, great design. The built-in vacuum system made cleaning the floors very nice.

One stall high ceiling garage was perfect for having all of our play stuff/bikes, etc in one place. Parking was easy with space out front or on side of house for 2-3 cars no problem

The house is right on the lake - the view is crazy. Nice metal dock you can walk out on with a manual boat lift - we found this perfect for getting our boat out of the water for the windy afternoons. The beach was rocky but we had no problem going swimming. There are lots of trees on the property, nice for shade but we also had huge clean up every day on patio area. There is a narrow grass area between patio and rock/cement wall on lake, not enough for games.

Maybe it was just us but we did not find the place so quiet - the highway is right at your back door. I would fight for the master at the front of the house when you arrive :)

We had a great trip, beautiful house, nice area.

Spent a month at this beautiful private home on the lake. We enjoyed the fabulous lake and mountain views. The coots, eagles, mallards and the lake itself provided us with lots of entertainment throughout each day. Had some great golfing, bike riding in town and at Oliver and of course the wineries. Katharina was there to welcome & acquaint us with the property and always available if needed. It would be lovely to return again someday.

This was a definite 10 out of 10 VaCa - so much fun! Despite unseasonably cool temperatures for mid September we had a great time boating, tubing, fishing and just enjoying the fabulous view. The wineries were great fun to visit - first time for us. Favorite - La Stella - Joel was so knowledgeable and delivered it in such an entertaining and enthusiastic manner - kudos!!

The accommodations were amazing! From the gorgeous staircase as you entered the home to the chef-inspired kitchen (which certainly inspired me - lots of appies to go with the wine!) The open concept was perfect for entertaining - cannot say enough about this beautiful, so well designed home. Everyone was taken by the beautiful view and being right on the lake was perfect. I personally loved being just outside of town, private and quiet - except maybe for us occasionally :).

Thank you Katarina and Ehrhardt - we had a fabulous time. I am certain you will be seeing us again.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This proved to be a fantastic vacation - just perfect. We arrived to share our granddaughter's 1st birthday, with her other grandparents in Osoyoos. Katharina was there to welcome us and share information about the house.

The views onto the lake are amazing and the house works very well. There were just the two of us, although we hosted many large family gatherings.

We enjoyed the small town, which has all the amenities one needs - especially recommended is the Lakeside Bakery. We also had many memorable meals at some of the local wineries. Our favourite was Burrowing Owl, but also liked Liquidity and Terra Fina.

Katharina - thank you so much. We had a wonderful, relaxing hotel! The only downside was nothing you could do anything about - it was so hot! 40C is too much for us Brits! Air conditioning and frequent dips in the lake made it bearable!

Never left the beautiful lake!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous house near the end of May. Walking in its a well designed home, open concept allows everyone to hang out in the kitchen/living room area together with ample room. Open the sliding door and the lake is footsteps away. We had our floaties ready and hopped right in. Probably 50% of our time was spent in the lake just floating around and when it got a little colder the hot tub on the roof was their waiting. Honestly a great 3 day weekend. Katharina and her husband are very welcoming. I'm hoping to come back again next year!! Thanks for everything, would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for fun in the sun and a comfortable stay. Oh yea and the views of the mountains are awesome!
