Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Lakefront Cottage just steps away from sand beach

This new “beachy-chic” decorated lakefront home is located in ‘The Cottages at Osoyoos Lake', conveniently situated mid-way between the resort towns of Oliver and Osoyoos.

Sandpiper Beach House offers gorgeous views, a sand beachfront, and the opportunity to make a splash in Canada's warmest fresh water lake. Breakfasts on the front patio, lunches in the screened-in porch, wine coolers on the beach, cocktails on the back patio, and soft-lit dinners to end your day. Or for a change of pace drink award-winning wines at some of the 29 local wineries, visit numerous festivals or great restaurants that are minutes away. The good life doesn't get much better than this.

Framed by desert hills, vineyards and orchards, The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake is the ultimate year-round desert destination with a climate that will allow you to swim, boat, fish, sail, wake board, kayak, and dip your toes into the wild, wet fun, taking place on the warm, beautiful waters of Osoyoos Lake. For on-the-water fun bring your boat, or rent a launch or SeaDoo at the local marina in Osoyoos. If you enjoy hitting the links you will love the year-round golf experience in Osoyoos.

MAINFLOOR: Rejuvenate in your main floor Master bedroom with a Queen pillow-top bed and duvet. Look out at a serene view of the lake through the glass doors which open onto your personal patio for two. A desk for your laptop, that views the lake, and there’s a spacious ensuite with a large glassed shower.

Gather on the back patio while BBQing, or prepare your feast in the fully-equipped gourmet kitchen using an induction stove and convection oven. Then serve your culinary delights in the screened porch to the sounds of bird song, or indoors on the elegant contemporary frosted glass dining table (both seat six). Be entertained and set the mood, in the open plan living area with vaulted ceiling, adjustable lighting throughout, a 55” HD Smart TV, a large L-shaped couch which pulls out into a queen bed if needed, a gas fireplace, and a Bluetooth speaker system. A powder room and laundry room complete this level. Beach chairs and beach umbrellas are supplied.

SECOND FLOOR: a second and third bedroom with Queen pillow-top beds and duvets, and a second full bathroom. A desk with a view of the mountains.

This beautifully landscaped and well maintained gated community is sitting in the center 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, and a fitness center. A meandering pathway takes you on a nice walk along the lake shore and to the many beautiful green spaces that The Cottages offer.

Whether your desire is to play in the sun, the sand, the snow, the warm water, explore award-winning wineries or just to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the surroundings, Sandpiper Beach House is the place for you!

About Sue Miller

My husband David and I currently live in Calgary Alberta Canada - about 8 hours drive away from Sandpiper Beach House. We enjoy our time in Osoyoos in the spring and the fall, but return to the Rocky Mountains in the summer (picture of me canoeing on lake near our Calgary home) and the winter. It's a great way to combine the best of both worlds. We're happy to know that our Osoyoos Beach House will help make happy memories for others while we're in Calgary.

Sue Miller purchased this house in 2015

Why Sue Miller chose Osoyoos

We often traveled to Osoyoos in the spring when our Calgary winter seemed endless. We were amazed to see fruit trees in blossom in early April and fell in love with the desert surroundings. When we saw The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake we were excited to be able to own a home with so much sun, a few steps from a sandy beach - and warm water - something we don't have in Calgary at any time of year! We plan on retiring here in a few years. in the meantime it's a great place to relax and enjoy life for a few weeks every year.

What makes this house unique

This house is uniquely located so we see the beach and are only a few steps from the water. The master and second bedroom have beautiful views of the water, and we love the screened porch - at any time of day or night. There's usually a lovely warm breeze and the birds provide great background music. The open plan feels really spacious and we enjoy listening to music on blue tooth speaker system connected to our phones, or watching cable, Crave or NetFlix on the 55" TV, or the TV in the bedroom.

Amazing home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beach home and it was one of the best holidays we've had. The home was beautiful, well equipped, super clean and steps to the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed and when we didn't want to cook, we just went into town for breakfasts or dinner and lots of wine! It was peaceful and so relaxing from the moment we arrived until we (sadly) had to leave. The beach is sandy and very private as it's only used by the residences. The landscaping within the community was beautiful with large open areas of grass and flowers were blooming. Thank you Sue for sharing your beach home with us!

Beautiful cottage steps away from Osoyoos Lake

  • 5 of 5

Vacation starts as soon as you enter this beautiful cottage. It is equipped with everything you need in kitchen, on the patio and by the beach/pool. Air conditioning, screened windows and garage are a plus. Very peaceful community of cottage houses, ca. 15min drive away from town. Everything is brand-new, including the pool and gym at the club house.

We can fully recommend staying at Sandpiper beachhouse and would return anytime. Thanks for being a great host, Sue and staying in close contact to us during our stay.

Absolutely WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month in this beautifully furnished and decorated cottage that is equipped with everything a traveller would need. Cottage is just steps from the beach and a club house with work-out equipment and a hot tub (during summer months 2 large swimming pools and a second hot tub are available). We enjoyed the walking trails and the tours to the area wineries. Sue was a perfect host. We are looking forward to returning next year.

The house, location and proximity to the beach was amazing. The paddle board was a great treat that all of us enjoyed.
