Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 8 with lake views

This cottage has it all and is located on the first road up from the lake. There is a lake view from the large front deck which gets sun until mid day, if you still want to soak up more sun with out leaving the cottage you can move around to the more private rear deck.

This cottage is unique in that it has four separate bedrooms plus a flex room downstairs. The mainfloor has two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bathroom with glass enclosed shower. The loft bedroom has a king bed and a great view out the picture windows to the lake. There is also a neat kid themed room with two twin beds, kids chairs and a small TV for the kids to watch.

The main floor has a nice open layout, with two bedrooms, kitchen, living and dining rooms. The kitchen has high end stainless appliances, quartz counter tops and is fully equipped with all the dishes, cookware, and utensils you could need, including espresso machine, drip coffee maker and blender. The dining room has a large table that comfortably seats 6 people, there is a leaf and two extra chairs if seats for 8 is needed. The kitchen bar has seating for two on stools.

The living room has a gas fireplace for those cooler fall and spring evenings, there is also a 47" TV, DVD player / Stereo with BT hookup. The stereo has built in speakers both inside and on the front deck with separate zone controls, so you can put the kids to bed and keep the music playing on the front deck and enjoy a drink or two.

The front deck has great sun in the morning, with lake views. There is a Webber 4 burner BBQ so you won't run out of grilling space. There is a four person sitting area and a dining table for six on the front deck. There is also a fire table, and outdoor lights to provide a nice ambiance in the evening.

The two bedrooms on the main floor both have queen beds with closets, along with french doors (with black-out blinds) that open up to the more private rear deck which gets sun in the afternoon. One of the unique features of this cottage is that there is an elevated walkway that feeds around to the rear deck from the front door so you don't have to walk through the bedrooms. The rear deck has a couple of chairs and a coffee table, along with a convertible sofa / day bed.

Downstairs is a flex room as well as access to the garage, where the laundry is. In the flex room there is a queen size convertible sofa bed, a love seat, a 42" TV, electric fireplace, some kids toys and a kids table and chairs. One of the nice features of this cottage is the internal staircase from the main floor to the ground floor, which allows this extra living space. Also this allows you to leave your pool or lake stuff in the garage to keep the upstairs and decks less cluttered, and you can leave out the garage. Or if your more into motorsports when you get back form riding the trails on your bike, ATV or SxS, you can drop your riding gear in the garage and just walk right up stairs. There are also 2 sit on kayaks available for use as well.

During the summer you will have full access to the garage to keep bikes, water toys, atv's, etc secure dry and out of your way. During the winter there is a boat that takes up part of the garage.

We have a young family of our own and have tried to make our cottage as family friendly as possible, there are kids plates etc in the kitchen, a high chair, booster seat, pack and play, some kids toys, kids size table and chairs, baby gates for the two staircases if needed, and even 4 kids deck chairs.

La Casa is an amazing resort with lots to offer every different age group. There are two heated pools, three hot tubs (the pools and hot tubs are open May-October, with one hot tub open on long weekends in the winter months) tennis, mini golf, kids playground and aqua-park. Down by the water there are fire pits that can be used as long as there is no fire ban on.

You won't run out of great Wineries to visit as there about 14 with in an hours drive of LaCasa.

There is OHV access right from the resort so you don't have to trailer or truck your bike, quad, or SxS to the Bear Creek OHV trail network which has hundreds of KM of trails that run around Terrance Mountain. At the top of Terrace Mountain there is an amazing 360* view of the Okanagan.

During the winter you can get to both Big White and Silver Star in a little over an hour.

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. Beautifully decorated and the kitchen has everything you need. The kids room in the basement was great. I had family members staying in other units in La Casa but we all gathered in this unit for meals and hanging out.

Great Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 8 including 2 grandchildren under 3 years. The cottage was well appointed with every detail including a cozy play area for kids downstairs with lots of toys. The deck was large with a great barbecue and gas fire table. We really enjoyed the very comfortable heated pool and 2 hot tubs. Tennis courts were a plus. Steve was always easy to contact for any issues and returned our damage deposit very promptedly. I highly recommend this cottage.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 along with my parents and our dog visited the cottage at the end of August, 2017. We had a wonderful stay, it was very relaxing and we had everything we needed at La Casa. We had planned to go into Kelowna several days, but ended up only going twice, because we were enjoying our time at La Casa so much. We loved having the use of the small kayaks, to add to the kayaks we had brought as well, and the trampoline on the water was a huge hit with the kids! Everything in the cottage was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The only negative I can say about the beautiful space was sleeping in the loft was not very restful for me personally. I'm very sensitive to light and noise and a light sleeper. I would prefer a closed room like the ones on the main floor. The bed itself was very comfortable, though.

Great home, resort geared for older kids

  • 4 of 5

The home was beautiful and very clean (though dusty under beds). Very spacious for 7 adults and 2 toddlers. The home was perfect for us, and I really appreciated all of the baby/toddler gear provided. The downside for our family was that the resort was geared more for older kids. The pool was nice and warm, but the playground was too high up for my toddler to get up on his own and I had to carry him down stairs or over boulders to the lakeshore. The other facilities were not for his age group at all (mini golf, Aquapark). Because of its remote location, it was a bit hard to entertain my toddler. The less mobile toddler was more content. We still had a wonderful time and I would visit again when the kids are old enough to enjoy all of the facilities. Hopefully by then, they build a sandy beach!

Great Property, Perfect place for families with kids.

  • 5 of 5

This La Casa cottage was perfect for our large family group. The cottage is fully equipt with anything you could need and then some. Great set up for large group with kids. View of the lake is great, although there is one additional cottage in front then in the photos but it doesn't obstruct the view. The owner was great and always replied promptly. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Kayla, I apologize that the photo of the view to the lake was not completely current, it had slipped my mind, I have updated the photos. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Steve.

Good but not great

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Can't beat the beautiful Lake and the awesome weather. The resort is all uphill/downhill walks and the pool/amenities area is not close to the house. It is actually located outside of the gate and across the highway, so driving there is recommended unless you really like walking up steep hills with armful's of stuff. The lake is close but still down a couple steep slopes and because we had so many things to bring we often drove down. Most people have golf carts to get around but at this cottage you don't have access to it. The 3 bedrooms were comfortable and dark but the king bed loft is very bright that we were woken up usually by 6:30 am. The deck off the front is very nice for sitting out any time of day. The BBQ we used often and sat one night with the fire table on. We weren't able to sit outside to eat though , as wasps were always a bother. My 2 boys loved the basement with the TV and Playstation. It was a great spot to let them relax in the evening after a long day playing outside in the hot sun. The AC was much appreciated. We had fun but most likely will not return to this resort.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Michelle, and thanks for the feedback. We are working on a better solution to the bright sun in the loft in the morning. Steve.
