Why Josi & Murray Knodel chose Osoyoos

This home was owned by our mother Katarina. With the passing of mom in 2011 the home is now owned by her daughters. Great family memories are attached to this home and the family continues to gather here, reminiscing and creating more cherished memories. This was my moms wish, it brought pure joy to her having family and good friends gather here, filling the house with laughter, love and delicious food!

Some updating has been done and more upgrades and enhancements will continue over the next year. There are 2 outdoor cats that reside on our property, they are well cared for and all their needs are provided for by myself.

We are happy to share our family home and feel it is an ideal home for families and pets to enjoy time together and the beauty of the Okanagan. We invite you to our home to Relax and create some Great Memories.

We had the fortunate privilege of renting this fantastic home for a long term rental this winter. We have rented other pet friendly homes throughout Canada and the United States and this home is beyond expectations. Josi and Murray have provided an exceptionally comfortable home...both inside and outside. The home is equipped with more amenities than you can imagine!!! Of course, to be greeted with a wine, cheese and fruit platter was unexpectedly wonderful. Quiet culdesac within walking distance everywhere was awesome. The yard was fantastic and we enjoyed many days on the deck or on the patio despite the winter/spring weather.

Our only misgiving with giving such a great review, that more people will want to book "our house"

A definite gem for snowbirds!

Very homely

  • 4 of 5

Stunning gardens and everything you could possibly need in the house. We spent a lot of time on the outdoor covered deck (dining, relaxing and playing games) which has stunning views over the garden and vineyards beyond. The house has been very well cared for and has a lovely homely feeling - the decor could do with a bit of modernizing, but this didn't spoil our enjoyment one bit. Excellent location too. Highly recommend 👍🏻

"Home Away From Home"

  • 4 of 5

This is one of the most amazing VRBO's I have rented. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. We traveled to Osoyoos for our son's wedding and from making fans out of the program for our guests to use during the ceremony, making decorations for the venue to hosting friends and family we found the home spacious and equipped with everything we needed. The personal touches by the owners like fresh flowers, a chilled bottle of wine and a cheese and fruit tray were what moved it to amazing. I would love to return and spend some time in Osoyoos and explore the area and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again.

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family totally enjoyed the week stay in Casa Kocen. The home is comfortable, spacious, convenient in every way and has a warm feel about it. Our children and grandchildren especially enjoyed the large yard and the many vegetables and fruits available on the property. Thank you, Josi and Murray, for helping us to have a very special holiday!

Great house for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Kocen residence. We even received a welcome gift of an appy platter and wine! The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The outside deck was just perfect and had shade all day. My sisters really enjoyed the cats on the property and my brother loved the large yard. The house has AC which was greatly appreciated by everyone. Thanks for a great stay!

A Warm Welcome Awaits

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a 3 day stay. It easily accomodated the 6 adults, plus 1 child with ample space to spread out. The huge deck was perfect, with 2 picnic benches for meals and lounging. The generous backyard was full of unexpected flowers, vegetables and herbs to enjoy. The house is well equipped and it's retro style brought back fond many memories. The welcome treats were especially thoughtful. It is a well situated hom, to easily access the amenities and explore the area.
