Beautiful Cottage on Lake Okanagan

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 19, 2016
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

A beautiful four-year-old cottage located in the exclusive LaCasa Lakeside Community on Lake Okanagan. The cottage has gorgeous views of the lake, and is mere steps away from the resorts amenities.

The cottage is fully furnished, and sleeps six people in three bedrooms (one bedroom is an open loft), each with a queen size bed, plus 2 on a queen size hide-a-bed in the living room. The two full bathrooms are spacious, and each hosts a bathtub and shower. The cottage contains air conditioning, an LCD television (with Shaw cable included) and DVD player, a washer/dryer, fireplace, barbeque, large deck with patio furniture, and many other amenities.

The resort is a fantastic get away for families with many resort amenities including a mini golf course, a large expanse of private beach, two poosl, hot tubs, and playground, amongst others. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The resort also has hiking trails and trails that can be used by all terrain vehicles.

Many activities are also available close by, but off of the resort. These include but are not limited to golf, skiing/snowboarding, water sports, wine tours, shopping, and everything else the Kelowna/Lake Okanagan area has to offer.

About the Owner

I live in Vermilion, Alberta with my husband and two daughters, where I own and run a yoga studio, wellness centre and retail store. We love being active, and having fun. We don't get to enjoy the cottage nearly as much as we would like.

Unsatisfactory stay

  • 1 of 5

- Listing states property is in Kelowna. Property is actually in Fintry, 35 minute drive to Kelowna.

- Listing claims access to amenities such as game room is included; in fact, these are available to owners only.

- Fridge door does not close (mind your perishables).

- Deck dining table broken/unusable (no meals on the deck).

- Some towels were stained.

- Spare sheet for sofa bed had holes.

- Carpets were soiled with large stains.

- TV colour is a bit off.

- Door knobs on 2 closets hanging off.

- Dirty oven.

- Not enough hot water in main bathroom.

- Kitchen faucet leaking into cabinets (we fixed it).

- Unresponsive owner once payment made - emails ignored, voicemail about faucet took a day to respond.

- Deposit took 4 days to be returned.

Owner's Response: The Home Away website does not permit Fintry to be listed as the town, Kelowna is the closest option available. The actual address of the cottage is listed as Fintry in the description. This feedback is definitely unexpected, as responses from the renters were positive when I asked how the stay was via text. The cottage is professionally cleaned between each stay, and we didn't receive any notification from the renter that there were any issues. We have never had reports of any uncleanliness in the cottage at all, ever. Guests are asked to notify owners upon arrival if anything is amiss, and nothing was communicated about any uncleanliness or issues with doors, etc. This was the first communication about any of the issues listed aside from the faucet. I was told it was a slight leak, and I apologized for my delayed response. The outside table had been broken in a storm a few days prior to the guest arrival and there wasn't time to have it replaced prior to guest arrival; however, it has since been replaced. Linens have normal wear, and are replaced often. The spare sofa bed sheet will be replaced, we were unaware of any damage to it. The carpets also have normal wear, and are cleaned regularly. The hot water tank is a regular size, and the color on the television can be adjusted manually by renters using the remote or using the buttons on the television. The fridge door does close; however, the alignment is a little off, so it needs to be closed securely. All emails were responded to when a response was requested. One email received On August 18 was sent as an FYI to me about issues with the VRBO payment system that the guest used rather than sending payment directly (as listed in the payment instructions), and no response was sent because it was an FYI from the renter. The email ended with "Just letting you know for future guests", so I assumed no response was needed. The instructions from VRBO were confusing for the renter, and I have addressed that with VRBO.

Perfect for Us

  • 4 of 5

What a great stay for us! This was a chance for a Mom's get away and with 6 of us, the size of the unit was perfect. The unit was spotless and fully equipped. I wrote the owner after our stay and our suggestions for minor improvements to our stay were well received. The complex is huge and we used our car to get down to the beach and up to the top pool just to save on time, but there are golfcarts to rent and walking obviously is an option. There is also a pool very close to this unit.

We will definatly stay here again if we head up to Kelowna in the future.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as it looked on the website. This was a perfect week to go as the group that stayed had no children and school was back in. The resort was empty and peaceful. The amenities were all closed (as earlier reviews stated all summer) but that has nothing to do with the home owner. Pool was great as well as the hot tub but you are not allied in after 10pm. It is a 2 minute drive through the resort to the water and about a 15 min walk. We all loved the property and would go back in a heartbeat. Ensure you go there prepared though as it's about a 35 minute drive in either direction to kelowna or Vernon.

Location

From the Owner

I love the resort! It's beautiful, and peaceful with a ton of amenities. It's the perfect spot for a family vacation, a wine tour weekend, or an adult getaway. I love being surrounded by nature, while having all the necessary comforts I enjoy.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Kelowna at 40 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Kelowna at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : La Casa Private Beach Car: necessary

Onsite:

Mini-golf, pools, beach, volleyball, tennis, water sports, exercise facility, hiking, plus a great trail system as detailed below.

We are very fortunate at La Casa to have, within a few kilometers of our backdoor, the newly created Bear Creek Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Trail System. Administered by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, & the Arts, and the Okanagan Trail Riders Association, the 35,000-hectare site is the largest managed recreation site in British Columbia. It includes many panoramic lookouts over Lake Okanagan and some of the most beautiful riding trails in BC.

One of the great advantages of a managed site is it addresses and mitigates the issues of unrestricted OHV use in our backcountry. This includes the monitoring of trails to ensure riders are using spark arresters, and ‘stealth’ mufflers. The system is designed to provide quality trails for motorcycles and ATV’s less than 50” in width. It will eventually provide loop trails identified by difficulty level (Green, Blue, Black) and user group.

Near-by:

Golf, wine tours, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, shopping, site seeing, fishing, boating, water sports, horseback riding, etc.
