Stuart is originally from Forestburg, Alberta and moved in 1981 from Calgary to Penticton to take over the long established photography studio McDonalds Photography. Del was born and raised in Penticton and after working and raising her family in Vancouver and Prince Rupert returned in 1983 to take over Hair World. The two first met in 83, and worked together on several joint shows and exhibitions featuring their complimentary talents. In 1999 they joined together in love and work and have operated their businesses from the property where they live. Together, they have now built the studio of their dreams on the same property as their home. Studio Del is Del's hair salon and art studio on the top floor (Del earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2001) and Stuart Bish Photography occupies the main floor and basement of the beautiful new building. Del's brother, Brian Nelson and architect based in Kamloops designed the new building. It is his admiration of the Art Moderne and Modern Contemporary style that is evident in the 1940 home that inspired the new building aptly named 'Box Camera'. Stuart and Del are pleased to offer this lovely private suite which was the former photography office to those who want to enjoy the many holiday recreations that Penticton and area have to offer.

Stuart Bish purchased this house in 1996

This home was chosen for its character and central location. It is a 1940 heritage home from the Art Moderne movement which was designed by architect Robert Lyon. He later became Reeve of the town of Penticton and presided over the growing community's change from town to city. This home and a 'sister' home of similar style in Kelowna designed by Mr. Lyon were featured in a chapter of a book entitled 'Building the West - The Early Architects of British Columbia' by Donald Luxton.

We love the extra large size of the property which gives breathing room and of course the 'Art Deco - Modernity' of the architecture. Be sure to ask us about those defining features, which when understood, helps to appreciate the wide influence this design movement has in the evolution of design, art and architecture.

Beautiful Penticton Retreat

  • Submitted: Sep 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
My wife and I also booked this suite last minute and were lucky to have it available for the next few days. After a long day of travelling it was a relief to finally arrive and find what awaited us. The accommodations were excellently decorated and maintained and the kitchenette was perfect for breakfasts and a light lunch. The owners were amazing people with lots of recommendations and advice for the area - even the dogs had a great time playing together. Perfect for wine tours in the Naramata region or just enjoying everything Penticton has to offer

Wonderful experience in a wonderful place

My wife and I booked at the last minute (the day before we were due to arrive) and somehow managed to find the suite available. The suite was thankfully air conditioned, perfectly sized for a couple (sitting area, eating nook, bathroom and bedroom) and very well appointed. It's moments from the "lazy river" and the Skaha beach and has a beautiful courtyard out back.

But, what makes the place exquisite are the owners. What wonderful people! We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: It was such fun to have you two stay with us! It felt like you were just another set of close relatives when you joined our family group in the courtyard that special evening. You made good use of the convenient location and really crammed a lot of activities and exploration into your stay. I'd definitely recommend a return visit to further explore Okanagan wineries and we'll conduct another scotch tasting for sure! Hope to see you again soon!

Lovely Suite and Stay

We really enjoyed our stay at this suite over the long weekend in August. We were greeted by the hosts who were warm and welcoming. The suite was very comfortable, and has a lot of beautiful art and photography. We had everything we needed, and it was a very nice and relaxing experience. We would have loved to stay in more to enjoy the suite and the relaxing courtyard if we didn't have so many activities planned. It was just a short walk to a lot of different stores and amenities which was very convenient. We also arranged a wine tour, and the shuttle picked us up at the suite, since it’s close to the Wine and Tourist Information Centre. We definitely want to return and stay there again!
Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review! It was a pleasure having you stay in our suite. You certainly know how to enjoy all the things Penticton has to offer - we hardly saw you! We also really appreciate how well the suite was cared for during your stay, and your help with our questions about how we can make it better. It meant a lot to us that you appreciated the convenience of our location and its close proximity to shops and services. We hope to see you again during the fall Wine Festival or to enjoy the fresh powder and short lift lines at Apex Ski Resort this winter!
