PROPERTY OVERVIEW:

Modern contemporary and luxurious three level, LAKEFRONT HOUSE in the Okanagan. Private sandy beach, large deck and private floating dock with a level yard.

Large windows to provide a spectacular view. All the modern conveniences including high quality furnishings, leather sofas, wine cooler and air conditioning.

Relax on one of the two front decks overlooking the lake or dive off the dock for a swim. Enjoy the breathtaking view and soak up the Okanagan SUN! Modern clean décor and furnishing with comfortable beds will make your stay enjoyable.

The house is located a few feet from the lake so it is easy to dive in and cool off or to climb onto your favorite floating mattress or chair. It is a five to seven minute drive to Penticton. The Penticton main beach on Skaha lake is minutes away.

The house has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, with two separate living room areas - 2400 square feet.

Penticton tourist attractions such as the canal between Lake Okanagan and Skaha Lake, water slides, go karts, mini golf, horse-back riding, tennis, beach volleyball courts are all a very short drive away and close by.

Award winning Penticton and Naramata wineries and great golf are in the neighborhood. Osoyoos and Kelowna are both less than 1/2 hour drives.

Lake and yard access is from the lower level of the house. There is a short flight of stairs down to the gradually sloping sandy beach which is ideal for children.

This three level vacation home can sleep eight people very comfortably. We allow a maximum of six adults (older than 18) or four adults and up to four children (younger that 18). We can make some exceptions for the appropriate type of groups. It is great spot for up to three couples or two small families. The home could accommodate more, but we do not generally allow groups larger than eight and prefer a maximume of six adults.

Quiet Time after 10 PM outdoors - no music or loud voices.

The house is close to the Wineries in Naramata, Oliver, Summerland, Penticton and the Okanagan Falls. Centrally located to all the top south Okanagan wineries such as Blasted Church, Jackson Triggs, Noble Ridge, Dirty Laundry, Desert Hills, Burrowing Owl, Lakebreeze, Kettle Valley, Etc. We have openings in June and September which are ideal for wine-tasting and Golf.

To all potential clients - we ONLY do SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTALS in JULY and AUGUST - sorry no exceptions .

About The Owner

Photo is of Ernie waterskiing....... why we go to the lake........

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Penticton

We rented a house on Kalamalka Lake in the North Okanagan for 10 years before buying a lakefront property. We were tired of old crappy beds and ugly shag carpet etc.. This house on Skaha Lake has everything we wanted when we were renting - a well set up and nicely appointed interior with great views of the lake, a good bedroom set up, nice comfortable beds, a great waterfront location, a great beach and dock set up, clean clear weed free water and close to all that Penticton has to offer.....

August stay for Challenge Penticton 2014

  • 5 of 5

We were in for the race and stayed the week after for a relaxing family vacation. The night of the race we were able to sit out and cheer the last racers on. There was a real community feeling in that area. We had two families with 2 kids each. The kids spent the whole week on the dock, swimming, paddle boarding and floating around. The house was big, bright and modern. We ate a lot of meals there because it was so lovely with the BBQ on the upper deck and a big kitchen. The wineries were all close too. My sister and I loved sitting out with a glass of wine in the evening on the lower lounge area. Some of us swam and others rode bikes over to Skaha beach a few times. There was a playground, water park and basketball courts. We even rented a power boat at the marina and the kids tried wake boarding and tubing. We would recommend Ernie's place for a great family summer vacation

Our family, 6 adults 2 kids, had a fabulous week, and found the accommodation met our needs very well. We enjoyed paddle boarding, swimming and relaxing, and the location of the house allowed for easy access to all the amenities found in the Okanagan.

A great get away!

We loved our stay at Skaha. The house is modern, clean and has a wonderful set-up with the kitchen and main area on the ground floor, a bedroom and tv area with walk -out on the bottom floor and three bedrooms on the top floor. All with great views of the lake and space for people to do their own thing. The small kitchen in the basement was great for storing cold drinks. House was perfect for a large family, or in our case, multi-generations.

Deck was terrific, and beach area was small but private. It was a very short walk to town and a play ground for our grandchild. Quiet, clean, modern, perfect.

Superb Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 4 kids) have stayed at this house for the past 4 years and keep coming back! It is an excellent location (right on the lake) and the kids love to fish off the dock and swim in the water. The house has an ideal set up for two families with a bedroom/bathroom/living room in the basement (ground level) and three bedrooms/2 bathrooms on the upstairs level. Skaha Beach is also only a quick 7 minute walk from the house and has an amazing children's playground and ice cream shop! The house is very well taken care of and the owner is a great guy (extremely helpful and responsive to any questions/concerns).

Great Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great stay here with another family for a total of 4 adults and 5 kids. Terrific lake access with gentle slope so kids can play easily. Nice balcony off dining area. Close to Skaha Lake marina, beaches, fruit stands, shopping. Also just a short drive to many wineries. Owner very good to deal with.
