About the property

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

This brand 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, 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!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about this rental. Everything was perfect - the location, the price, the cottage, the amenities.

The owner/manager was prompt, friendly and helpful.

We would definitely return!

Perfect spot lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage. It is very spacious and the air conditioning is lovely at night. The screened in patio was a great spot for dinners and relaxing in the evening.

We loved how close the lake was (across the street) and you are a quick walk to the pool.

Cottage was well stocked with towels, beach supplies and kitchen utensils.

The kids were able to run around on the green space right behind the cottage while we made dinner.

Definitely would come back! Thank you!

Comfortable and beautiful home in a fabulous holiday complex

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this lovely comfortable home just steps from the private beach on Osoyoos Lake. The complex also provides a beautiful clubhouse, workout facility and pool/hot tubs to enhance your stay. You are only minutes away from biking routes, hiking trails and gorgeous wineries.

An awesome time had with my family

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last week of August at Sue's cottage. We spent 8 wonderful days in the sun, swimming at the beach and touring the wineries. The picture are exactly what you get. The house was more than large enough for us (5 adults and 1 dog). Below I will list a few items that might interest people staying at this cottage.

1- The cottage is approx. 12 kms from Osoyoos and Oliver and is remote in terms of places to eat or getting other items. There are plenty of fruit stands on the main highway to grab fruit and a few other items. We knew this going to the cottage and stopped at Costco in Kelowna and stocked up. Spent every night drinking wine and BBQ our own food. It was nice to spend that time with our family.

2- There are plenty of wineries near the cottage. Stop at Platinum Bench and get some of their homemade bread. Maverick Wineries on the highway was one of my favorites.

3- Sonora golf course in Osoyoos has some excellent specials. We paid 35 dollars on the Thursday for unlimited rounds.

4- Use Black Sage Road to get into Oliver from the Cottage, seemed faster than the highway.

5- The TV on the main level does not have a cable box to watch standard TV broadcasting but is a smart TV (No DVD player either). We did watch some Netflix on this TV. The room upstairs does have a TV with a cable box. No TV in the master (fine by me).

6- Their was a inflatable paddleboard in the garage and some inflatables and beach chairs are also available in the screen room.

We loved staying at the cottage and will definetly recommend to our friends.

Owner's Response: We sincerely appreciate your kind review and helpful hints for future guests. We're glad you had an enjoyable time at Sandpiper Beach House. To clarify for future guests - there are 4 grocery stores. 2 in Osoyoos & 2 in Oliver. Both towns are a 15-minute drive from the house and our in-house Welcome Book and VRBO App have detailed directions to quite a few restaurants in the area.

A fantastic property for families in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We just returned after a one week stay. The sandpiper beach house is well appointed and beautifully decorated, yet still comfortable and has everything you need -- even beach chairs and towels and a (very good) welcome bottle of local wine. The screened in veranda is lovely for breakfast or dinners outside without being bothered by bugs. The property itself is pretty low key and well maintained -- even though there was a lot of construction while we were there, the sites were immaculate and the builders very polite. The lake side beach is steps away from the house and shallow and sandy for little feet. The pool is a 2 minute walk and was never too busy. And we also enjoyed the concrete paths for safe scooter rides and the grass behind the house for general play. And to top it all off, you are only a 5 minute ride from Burrowing Owl Winery!

Unlike other vacation rentals we stayed at, you need to bring all your kitchen staples (olive oil, condiments, dishwasher tabs, etc.) Usually elsewhere, the previous renters would leave extras in the pantry but that doesn't seem to be the case here. But Susan makes sure you have a starter pack for the dishwasher, coffee and laundry so you aren't stranded. Bath robes would be a welcome addition to make the place absolutely perfect. We will be coming back for certain.

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 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 NetFlix on the 55" TV, or cable TV in the bedroom.
