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.

Better than the Pictures

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do justice to this great open concept home located right on the lake and neat the La Stella winery. The master suite is akin to living in a tree house. A perfect base for out golfing and wine tasting adventure in the Osoyoos area.

Osoyoos paradise, home away from home..

  • 5 of 5

This 2 storey home is ideally situated between Osoyoos and Oliver, right in the middle of wine country, on the lake in a most serene setting. Ideal for 3 couples, and just fine for 4 , sleeps 8, 4 beds - 2 bedrooms up and 2 down. Ample living space and well stocked kitchen, hot tub and seating on the upper deck makes for some great game nights under beautiful skies. Sit in the yard or on the dock to watch the birds and muskrats in the lake, or, do a little fishing....Sunsets are beautiful from this home. Very friendly and accommodating owners, reserved the dates they know we like to have in advance to be sure we could return to "our" little piece of paradise. Fruit, veggie, pies and more stand within walking distance. Heat Stroke Cycle tour around Osoyoos area was a blast, annual September outdoor concert at TinHorn Creek Vineyards featuring Canadian talent, not to be missed, Similkameen Valley wineries (check out Orofino), the best jerky and pepperoni shop, Doug's Homestead, near Hedley and great picnic, hiking and fishing spots along 2 rivers are all within an hours drive. If you're in Osoyoos for lunch or dinner, check out Dolce's SocialHaus, and if you've missed closing and are in the mood for a late night bite, the perogie and sausage cart vendor outside the Owl Pub is good...really! We used to stay in a hotel.....this beautiful rental has spoiled us...we hope to return year after year!

This was our third year in a row and we really love it. Home away from home. Even if the weather isn't perfect we had a great time. Looking forward to next year.

Relaxed pleasure seekers

Unbelievably relaxing time for our family in a beautiful setting. Great location and amenities. Can't beat that lakeside access. A/C overnights could have been cooler but that was literally the only hiccup in a fabulous trip

Truly was Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one week of heaven. A beautiful place on a beautiful lake. We were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome when we first arrived. They were very helpful with any questions or suggestions we had about the area and we greatly appreciated their advice. Sure hope we have the chance to come back to this paradise real soon and hopefully we are able to stay longer because a week just wasn't enough. A perfect place for a perfect family vacation!!

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.
