About Wilbert and Joka Borren
Wilbert and Joka both grew up in Holland and are the proud parents of 4 sons. Since our move to Canada we owned and operated a farm near Lacombe, Alberta for 20 years. We made the move to the Okanagan valley in the Fall of 2011. Since we have a real heart for people, we decided to share this beautiful property with you by offering our questhouse for rent.
Wilbert and Joka Borren purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Wilbert and Joka Borren chose Penticton
The few times we spent our summer holidays in the Okanagan, we dreamed of living here. The Okanagan valley has its own unique warm climate with mild winters. This climate is perfect for growing wine grapes. With farming in our blood it only seemed natural to look for a farm in the Okanagan. Our property is beautifully located just minutes outside of the city of Penticton. We are at the start of the Naramata Bench Winery Route, where many award-winning wineries can be found.
What makes this Cottage unique
The close proximity to Penticton and yet the private location of the vineyard opens up a myriad of possibilities for your getaway. A stroll through the Four Shadows vineyard, a tasting at our newly (May 2019) opened winery, a bike ride on the KVR trail or a walk to our neigbouring winery and creamery where you can enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and now also stone grilled pizza on their patio. These are just a few of the many possibilities. Penticton has all the amenities of a city and we are within minutes of downtown where life entertainment can be enjoyed all summer long.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We loved our stay here! The location was perfect for exploring downtown and to all the wineries. The house had everything we needed with great amenities like robes, a full kitchen, and plenty of natural light. We are already looking forward to our next stay here!
Lovely property we will definitely book again
Amazing! Best VRBO to date
Such a great location! We loved it, cannot wait to go back. Everything you need, in the perfect location. Beautiful view, and honestly some of the best wine we tasted in the Okanagan! Stay here!
We stayed here for a couple nights with my 8 yr old. The cottage is such a lovely and quiet place to hang out and the view of the vineyards, valley and mountains are beautiful. The cottage has all that we needed for a great stay; games, dvds, and books were there to keep us entertained as well during a rare rainy afternoon. Yoka is a gracious host and couldn’t be more pleasant to talk to. The area outside the cottage is also nice to wander around and relax on the chairs. Good pizza and wine tasting and fruit stands within walking distance, too. And just a few minutes drive down to Penticton town center. Would definitely recommend this place.
Amazing place to stay!!
I absolutely & highly recommend this place! Wilbert and Yoka are wonderful hosts!! This is our 6th time at their vacation property and each time we enjoy it more & more. Their place is always so warm & welcoming!! They even set out toys for our little guy, fresh farm eggs, fruit off the tree & the view is spectacular! It really is such an amazing getaway & we will be back!! Thank you Wilbert & Joka for sharing this with us again!
Our vacation rental is located on the edge of Penticton at the start of the Naramata Bench wineries, surrounded by orchards and vineyards.
