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
