About Schuyler (Skyler) Lighthall

I started Okanagan Housecheck & Vacation Rentals in 2004 out of a passion for the Okanagan and the desire to help others experience the very special Okanagan way of life.

'The wine, the fruit, and the food; the rugged arid landscape straddling the crystal clear waters of Okanagan Lake… the wildlife, the mild climate, and the friendly, laid back people.... there's so many things that makes the South Okanagan such a unique place to be. It's a way of life I thought had disappeared… it can't be found anywhere else in the world.'

As a former educator and international developemnt aid worker I've lived in many countries around the world including Bolivia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Malaysia, and Cambodia. My passion for travel has taken me from the European continent to the remote corners of South America and Asia.

'When I travel I want to meet the local people, eat where they eat, and go to the places where they like to go. I started my business to provide an opportunity for people to come and actually live in the communities of the South Okanagan so that they can really experience the Okanagan way of life.'

I look forward to helping you discover the Okanagan. Come and see why it's called, 'the place to stay forever!'…

We love btb cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the By The Bay Cottage this august and had the best time ever! We will be back for sure. The cottage has everything a family needs and more. It is perfectly furnished and equipped and is just lovely. Only a few steps from the beach or a bikeride in any direction to more beaches and wineries! We just love Naramata and this cottage was the perfect place to enjoy some much needed downtime :)

This is a great cottage and has a great location right across from the beach. A 5 minute walk to the Lavender Farm. SCHUYLER is a great host and makes sure you have everything you need. I had friends come up to visit and they absolutely fell in love with Naramta and its quaint charm and also thought the cottage was fabulous and they will be booking it for next summer.

Messages from our Guest Book:
Wow! We really enjoyed our stay here at By the Bay Cottage. Naramata is such a nice town and the beach and parks were great! Of course we couldn’t resist checking out a few of the wineries. The cottage has everything we needed – even a drying rack for the day that it rained Thanks Schuyler.
The Bodor’s.
Thank-you for such a great place to call home during our stay here! We had a lovely time here in Naramata – wine tasting for the parents and Manitou Park for the teens. We will be back no doubt!
Rodney, Marjon, Meriah, Sophia. Aug 2011

We had a wonderful stay in Naramata. By the Bay exceeded our expectations. My wife was competing in Ironman so we did not get to enjoy the place as much as we’d like but we’ll be back. A great community! Laughing Stock and Therapy are great wine shops.
Scot Lisa, Kira and Reilly. Aug 3/11

This was our second stay at By the Bay Cottage and it we’ll definitely not be our last. We hope to make this an annual tradition w our in-laws over Sept long weekend. Thank-you so much for giving us such a great home base for our Naramata and area visit.
Jane, Andrew, Anne-Marie and William Sept 2011

Our vacation was made spectacular by the virtues of By the Bay Cottage – a lovely place to unwind each evening and lounge in the mornings. We enjoyed visiting with the quail and the jays and also like them collecting some hazlenuts. The plums were delicious. As for wineries – we most enjoyed the small operations we visited – Serendipity, Black Widow, and Summergate were our faves. We do hope to return. c’est parfait!
