Overview

Vernon House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This 3 level duplex home has 3 decks/patios, all with stunning lake views. A huge view deck is accessed from the upper level master bedroom and the 2nd bedroom. Off the living area there is a large covered deck with a BBQ. The ground level patio is spacious and includes a private hot tub and hot/cold water outdoor shower.

Built above a private beach on Okanagan Lake, this stunning home is one unit (2700 sq. ft. - 251 sq. m.) of two duplexes. The main floor is open plan and offers expansive lake views from the kitchen, dining room and living room. Floor to ceiling folding glass doors open the living room so you can hear the water lapping on the shore. Finishes are exceptional: walnut flooring and cabinetry, surround sound, bar area with wine fridge, 42” TV.

Upper floor has a king bed, 37” TV, walk-in closet, luxurious bathroom with granite countertop, tiled shower, tub. Sliding glass doors open on to a small private balcony.

The second bedroom has a queen bed, en suite with tub/shower, granite countertop, tiled floor. The lower level has a family room with 50” plasma HD TV, surround sound, bedroom with twin beds, fabulous bathroom with tiled shower and granite countertop. An additional inflatible twin size bed is available.

This home can be rented with the adjacent suite (VRBO #251550) which has its own mini-kitchen, bathroom, queen bed, laundry. It is 550 sq. ft. - 51 sq. m. in size. This enables 9 persons to be very comfortably accommodated (4 1/2 bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms).

The home has geothermal heating and cooling. For your comfort, all the tiled floors are warm in winter!

The private beach is 30ft from the home and includes a sandy area (imported Shuswap lake beach sand!), plus a private dock.

We are planning to put this home on the market next summer (2015). This past season, we have noted that sales have happened with vacation rental properties where the home has been available for viewing during a weekly “open house 24-hour” period.

So we have decided that until June 15th, 2015, reservations will be provisional for the summer rental season. Also, reservations will be for a maximum of six-nights per week, starting at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon and ending at 11am on the following Friday. [This will enable the home to be cleaned and then available for viewing by appointment from 3pm on Friday afternoon until 4pm on Saturday afternoon].

Reservations will be confirmed approximately one month before the expected arrival date.

For stays longer than one week, if you were to make short-term arrangements to stay somewhere else for the Friday night returning on Saturday afternoon, we would be happy for you to leave your personal belongings neatly packed/closeted in the home and your food and supplies in the pantry/refrigerator. The advantage of this cleaning to you will be that the whole home will be fully cleaned to a show-home standard every week during your stay!

Looking forward to hosting you in 2015!

About Jim Radford

The Okanagan Valley is a beautiful part of British Columbia! The climate is fabulous and it is a year round playground. Lake Okanagan is great for any kind of water sports, there are numerous golf courses nearby and exceptional wineries to visit. In the winter months nearby Silver Star Ski Resort is a world-class winter spot to visit. The first time we drove into the interior of BC, we knew we would love to own property here.

Jim Radford purchased this house in 2009

Why Jim Radford chose Vernon

There are many nearby activities which appeal to all the members of our family, plus this home is right on the water.

What makes this house unique

Beautifully clear water on the widest section of Lake Okanagan with our own private beach and dock. Fabulous decks from where one can enjoy magnificent sunsets.

An Amazing and Beautiful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We were very fortunate to be able stay in this beautiful home for 5 nights!
First off we want to thank Jim and Claire for allowing us to use this fantastic property for our September wedding!! We were looking for some place special. near the lake where we would be able to have some of our family and friends share our intimate day. We wanted to say "I Do" on the beach! Lucky for us, Jim and Claire allowed to rent their property for the occasion!
The location and home were perfect! We couldn't have asked for anything better! The home has a very well stocked kitchen. We didn't have our Wedding dinner there but it is set up for entertaining!
The view from every room was spectacular but the best feature was the bi-fold glass wall in the living room. It felt like you were right in the outdoors. You could hear the water lapping on the beach.
All and all it was a perfect location for us to not only have our Wedding but to have a few days to just relax and enjoy all it had to offer.
We would definitely recommend this home and our hope is that we can have the opportunity to stay there again!

Owner's Response: Glad that another destination wedding couple were able to use this spectacular water-edge home for their boutique wedding. This property works really well for a spring or fall wedding or other celebrity occasion of a small group of family and friends.
Looking forward to hosting your group again soon!

Stunning waterfront rental

  • 5 of 5
From the view to the surround sound throughout the home, this rental home is amazing. It was very clean, very professionally operated and beautifully laid out. The living room is incredible with floor-to-ceiling retractable windows making you feel as though you are outside while you are actually inside. The hot tub was awesome... the dock fantastic... the wildlife fantastic to watch... the kitchen clean and well equipped.

We rented the home and the suite and it was just awesome! Large rooms, tall ceilings, comfy and clean furniture.

Would go back and recommend without a doubt!

Thanks for an awesome stay!

Waterfront Retreat

  • 5 of 5
To whom it may concern,

We truly have nothing but great things to share. We found this clean, quiet getaway at the last minute and Jim and Claire understood and respected our situation from the moment they answered the phone. They were professional, organized, experienced and accomodating. I feel that this home comes across as nicer than the pictures because of its location... We wanted a quiet retreat getaway and that's what we found.

Very positive experinence and we would strongly recommend.

Fantastic space, modern, great views, love the triple-fold doors

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this property in September for 4 nights, after extensively searching for something on the east side of the lake (to catch more afternoon/evening sun) that could suitably sleep our party of 2 couples (1 with infant) and one grandmother, and have a bit of a 'wow' factor.

Very very few properties in the Okanagan area can compete with this property for a modern and functional interior and suitable sleeping arrangements (2 bedrooms on top floor, the other on ground floor below the middle floor living/kitchen area) that allowed great comfort. It was great to see the ground floor room have two singles that weren't bunks, and had lots of extra space (media room) attached so there was lots of room for our infant son and also that our other guests on the top floor werent disturbed.

The setting was stunning, particularly when opening the triple/bifold doors, and there were great additions with the hot tub, music system, large indoor and outdoor seating areas etc to entertain. The place was so peaceful being toward the southern end of Oakanagan Landing Rd/Eastside Rd, and even if a car passed at night you never heard anything with high standard double glazed windows on this building. It was easy to enjoy staying at the home, or be 15mins to the highway and explore the Okanagan area from there

The owner was easy to deal with and even visited during our stay to help us with a couple of questions we had, great attention there.

Owner's Response: Glad to have had another very happy group in our very special lakeside home! It is very comfortable and the views exquisite in summer, fall, winter or spring! Ideal for your next romantic getaway, or a fantistic group retreat! Close to Silver Star ski mountain in the winter as well!
Looking forward to offering you the personal touch on your next special occasion! Jim & Claire

Fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to the Okanagan many times, and this property really stands out. Beautifully designed, with lots of space for our family of 5 + weekend guests. The views were amazing, and the location is conveniently located near Vernon. The hosts were also very friendly and helpful...we will definitely be back.
