4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Lakefront Cottage just steps away from the water

Now Completed!!!

This brand new exquisitely decorated Lakefront home is located in The 'Cottages At Osoyoos Lake'.

Wanting to enjoy some water sports, relax on a private sandy beach, or perhaps just enjoy a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the lake or perhaps you are a Snowbird wanting to escape to a milder climate then Casa Bella Vida in Osoyoos is the place for you. Osoyoos is not only known for being Canada's only desert, but also for being in the heart of some of the most beautiful orchards and vineyards which were rated #2 in the world for best wineries by 'USA Today'. There's truly something to discover here all year round. Whether you're looking to master your swing at one of the several golf courses in the area or skiing the powder snow at Mt. Baldy or Big White, checking out one of the numerous festivals around town, or exploring some of the 29 local wineries, which are just minutes away, you will always find something to excite your senses.

The main floor features a Master bedroom with a King size bed, spacious en-suite with a large glassed shower and a separate soaker style tub. This level also has a second bedroom with a Queen sized bed and a second full bathroom with a glassed in shower, a dining area, a living room area with a 45' HD Smart TV with a large comfy couch which pulls out into a Queen bed if needed. For those that like to explore their culinary talents there is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen that we are sure will satisfy those needs.

The lower level features a Master bedroom with a Queen sized bed, second bedroom with two single beds, full bathroom with another glassed in shower. This level also has a games room with a pool table, bar, large sectional couch, which makes into another bed and features a 55' HD Smart TV. Both floors have a large walk out deck with sitting areas, lounge chairs and of course an unobstructed view of Canada's warmest lake.

This beautifully landscaped and well maintained gated community is sitting on the fringe of rolling vineyards directly on Osoyoos Lake. There's a private dock and a private sandy beach with volleyball nets, tether ball and beach fire pits for all to enjoy. The amenities include 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, a full fitness center, as well as a common are large enough to host any kind of special event. A meandering pathway takes you on a nice walk along the lake shore and to the many pristine green spaces that the cottages have to enjoy. Whether your desire is to play in the sun, the sand, the snow, the warm water, explore the endless sights or just to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the surroundings or perhaps to just take a moment to..... breathe!

Casa Bella Vida at the Cottages... is the place for you!

About Michael Kalynn

My fiance and I grew up in the lower mainland and we've known each other since high school. We have 6 children all together and 2 grandchildren. We have quite a big family but greatly enjoy our family time. When we can we love to travel and we all love the outdoors.

Michael Kalynn purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Kalynn chose Okanagan Valley

Our family has spent many years vacationing in Osoyoos and we finally decided to purchase a piece of it to one day retire in. The 'Cottages' is a beautiful gated community that has so much to offer right at your front door, it really makes you never want to leave.

Great well-kept home in beautiful location for quiet family gatherings and exploring local vineyards

  • 5 of 5

My family and two other families who live in separate parts of BC rented this property as a group get-together in Autumn of 2015.

We found the location quiet, with a beautiful view, shoreline to explore, and plenty of safe roadway behind the house for the kids to ride bikes and play.

The house itself was spacious, able to accommodate the 3 families comfortably, and adequately stocked with enough kitchen needs to prepare and serve the group meals. The kitchen, living room, dining area space is large and we were able to all use that area as the main gathering area. Although the internet was adequate for light usage, streaming video proved unreliable.

The owners were professional, helpful and prompt, everything you could ask for.

All in all, the place was great and we're hoping to rent it again next year.

Absolutely stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Our golf group of four couples booked this absolutely beautiful home and we were all just thrilled with the home, location and stunning views. Our only regret was that we had not planned to stay longer than the four days we had booked. The home has everything you could possibly need and so much more. Everything was so easy from booking to arrival, we just had no issues at all. On the way home, we were all trying to plan another way to get to the area so we could book Michael and Sandi's amazing place. Thanks so much for renting out your beautiful Oasis at the Cottages.

A gem in the desert

  • 5 of 5

It was a family holiday to remember with wonderful, separate space for grandad and nana, our son and daughter-in-law and our 10 and 12 year old grandkids (the four of them downstairs) and our second son. Although the houses are close together, they are designed for maximum privacy, sun or shade from dawn to dusk and great water and mountain views from everywhere. All the items from water toys to bikes to a great pool table were there for us to use. It was very warm during our stay so we spent many hours on the beach and also at the pools and clubhouse. If you plan to use the beach during the summer, I would suggest taking beach umbrellas or a sun canopy as we did, as there is limited shade on the beach. It was nice to be just a short drive from Osoyoos for shopping, restaurants and attractions for kids such as waterslides and go-karts. Michael and Sandi were available to answer all of our questions and make our stay very comfortable. They even collected items we had left at departure, which we picked up at a convenient time for us. Thanks so much to both of you.

Beautiful house and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

9 of us stayed here last week ranging in ages from 5 to 80. Every single one of us had such a wonderful time and we were sad to leave. The house is so nice and it is stocked with every possible thing you could want. The location really is amazing - right in front of the lake and close to the beach. On top of all there is to do, we also spent many hours just sitting on the deck soaking in the amazing view! The owners, Michael and Sandi, are wonderful to deal with. We highly recommend this rental to anyone. Thanks for an unforgettable holiday!

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella Vida was everything we expected and more! Michael and Sandi were awesome to deal with prior, during and after our pleasant stay in June 2016. Their home is so bright and cheery even on the most cloudy days. The attention to detail reflects in the perfectly stocked cupboards, the linens, extra fridge, the games room, the recreational toys, ie bikes, kayaks. The resort-like atmosphere at the Cottages provides you with many choices with the beach, firepits, playground, walking trails, pools, hot-tubs, gym, marina etc. You will find everyone to be very friendly.

While in the area, we visited many wineries, fruit stands, farmer's markets, restaurants, dress shops, golf courses in both the towns of Osoyoos and Oliver.

We would highly recommend this beautiful property to rent. Trust us, you will not be disappointed. Once again..thank you Michael and Sandi for our most enjoyable stay. You have not seen the last of us 😀򐀊Cathie and Tim

Beautiful location, very well appointed

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed here for 4 nights at the end of May. Michael and Sandi's home is beautiful, well decorated and well stocked with everything that we needed. There was plenty of space to spread out in and have a bit of privacy when needed. There are several outdoor lounge areas too which we didn't use due to a couple of very windy days but they would have been much appreciated if the weather was a little better. On the last day the weather improved and I was able to paddleboard on the lake which was incredible. We all really enjoyed the pool table as well! The kitchen was large and well stocked so we used it a lot to do most of the cooking while we stayed. We visited many wineries and had lunch at Burrowing owl and Hester Creek restaurants which we all highly recommend. We also attended the summer concert series at Tin Horn winery and the venue and music were spectacular. Quite possibly the most scenic outdoor concert venue anywhere! All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay in the Okanagan. Thank you very much for letting us use your beautiful home.
