Windermere Condo Rental Photos and Description

Location --- Location---Beautiful Akiskinook Resort is situated on twenty acres of forested land and lakefront. Small simple condo for families. Fireplace for winter, barbeque for summer. Insuite washer /dryer for the popsicle stains. It has all the dishes, towels, bedding you will ever need for 4 people. Wifi, and cable in the unit. The condo midway between the beach and the main entrance. There's a playground on site, tennis courts, and a great private beach with change room and bathroom on site. The resort is 10 min from the main town of Invermere.

This resort is great for families and couples of all ages. NOT great for young people who want to have parties. No dogs allowed, no smoking

Perfect year round family vacation destination. Akiskinook Resort offers an indoor swimming pool, Hot Tub, tennis courts, games room and playgrounds. Private Beach and marina is a short stroll from your front door. Boat moorage availible.Convenience store with all the nessesities is only a five minute walk. The quant little town of Invermere is only a five minute drive. Invermere offers a host of unique shops and restaraunts nestled in a Bavarian/European influenced setting.

My favorite stop on a Saturday morning is the Main Street Bakery that serves up fresh coffee, breads and cinimon rolls that are baked in their wood fired brick oven. For the Ski Lovers in the Family there is two choices only 20 minutes away. World Class Panorama Ski Resort (Same people who developed Whistler BC) offers breath taking views and ski terrain and Fairmont Ski Hill offers affordable family skiing. For the Golfers in the family the Invermere Valley hosts some of the best rated courses in BC! (Grey Wolf, Radium Springs)

After a day on the slopes or hitting the greens you can indulge yourself at either Fairmont Hot Springs or Radium Hot Springs. These two World Renowned natural, mineral hot springs/spas are open year round are the perfect way to relax and rejuvinate yourself. For those looking for more adventure I can tell you how to hike in to some completely natural Hot Springs bubbling out of the side of a Mountain at 104 Degrees.

The Valley area also includes numerous amusement parks for kids, including miniature golf, horseback riding, and river rafting.

This Non-Smoking Condo is fully renovated including granite countertops. Enjoy your stay!

About Shauna Rowell

HI there, we are a family of Three, and we travel with my sister-in -law and her husband all the time. This was a train ride we went on while in the Okanagan. We love Akiskinook for its simple pleasures, the beach, nature walks, the pool and tennis courts. This resort gives us the freedom to let our son to ride around on his bike, and go to all these places without our supervision so we all get a holiday. It's self enclosed area is very safe and all the owners and renters here are friendly. THis is a family resort where there is stuff to do for the whole family.

Shauna Rowell purchased this condo in 1995

Why Shauna Rowell chose Windermere

Great for the kids they meet all kinds of other kids to play with. In this resort you don't really need to go anywhere else!

What makes this condo unique

Indoor pool if it rains, private beach and boat slip rental, playground and tennis courts, largest resort in Valley area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time staying at your condo, very cozy and comfortable. We swam every night and enjoyed the walk to the beach even when it was overcast. Can't wait to come during the summer. Thanks for a great get away.

Friendly Neighbours and lots for all of us to do. Tennis. Boating. Beach. Biking. New friends made. Thanks for a great sure.

The best family resort ever.

  • 5 of 5
Great location, super resort for our kids. They met lots of friends and played at the playground and the pool the whole weekend. The unit is small but comfortable and well cared for. We thought it was a perfect spot for us.

Decent for the money

  • 1 of 5
We rented this condo for the September long weekend and arrived on the Friday at 3:30pm. The check in time is listed as 4pm, and we figured a half hour was not too far off the mark, but the condo was not clean when we arrived. Bed unmade, towels used in the shower etc. After three unanswered phone calls I finally called the office back and got an answer. Initially there was confusion over whether the condo had been rented the day before (which I didn't care about, obviously someone had slept in the bed) and then a mild accusation about arranging a late check in with me (which they did not). Finally it was determined the very hardworking cleaning lady was running late (okay, I guess I'll buy that), and that she would call when she was finished. She did, 2 hours later, but there was zero follow up from the office about the whole experience. Disappointing to say the least - not even a "Sorry about that ". So, not a great start. Overall, the property is nice, you will need to drive to the playground, it is so tucked away down by the boat storage you know the designers didn't want kids to disrupt the quiet. The beach is also down a steep slope and a bit small. Loads of wasps this season, but that can change as can the boil water advisory (which was a pain, check to make sure the water filtration system on the property is working before you go, especially if you have kids). The condo itself has a strange layout with the bedroom right beside the door to the parking lot and the only bathroom (with no locks) between it and the rest of the condo. Some upgrades were nice, the slate floors, engineered wood floors, and the granite countertops, but to do that and leave the ancient cupboards and bathroom vanity didn't seem to make sense. The pots, pans, towels, dishes etc are an obvious mish-mash of leftovers from someone's house. The junk drawer is quite a sight. The kitchen and living room area are spacious and more then enough room for our family of four. The patio is especially nice to sit out at (minus the wasps!). We thought the bunk beds would be great for our kids, but when we saw it there were two electrical outlets up there with various lights and fans plugged in, and the light to the top bunk had three extension cords plugged into it. Not safe. Overall, a nice-ish condo for the price, but without a follow up from the management on our experience, the low end touches and the weird electrical situation in the back 'bedroom' would not stay again.

Owner's Response: HI there. Thanks for your review. Sorry about the late check in, that must have been a pain in the butt with the little kids. You should have had a follow up, but being on a long weekend, I'm not sure why it wasn't followed up. We do have a great care taker/cleaner and its too bad your experience wasn't a fun one. Have a great September!

Super spot for a getaway. Just what I was looking for.

  • 5 of 5
We had a quiet and relaxing vacation before the resort fills with families. Loved the beach and the bird watching. We went sight seeing during the day and went for a hot tub every night. Thanks for renting us this cute spot.
