Kelowna vacation rentals

Lakeside beauty in British Columbia

Set on the glistening waters of Okanagan Lake, Kelowna is surrounded by provincial parks that provide pristine lakes for fishing, and a well-maintained network of trails for horseback riders, mountain bikers, runners, and hikers. Kelowna vacation rentals offer a comfortable base for adventures both outdoorsy and culinary. The Okanagan region is famous for its fresh produce and farm-to-table events, so there are ample opportunities to taste local wines, pick your own fruit, or even collect eggs for your breakfast. Outdoor concerts in summer and skiing in winter are only a few of the draws for this vibrant city.

Wine tasting and beach life in Kelowna

Strolling along the waterfront boardwalk is an excellent way to start exploring this exciting city. Local craft breweries, cideries, and distilleries offer tours and tastings to tempt the palate. Kelowna vacation rentals are close to sandy beaches, which are beautiful spots for a day of swimming in the clear waters of Okanagan Lake and playing rousing games of beach volleyball. In winter, you can strap on snowshoes or cross-country skis to explore the winter wonderland of snow-covered forests at a leisurely pace. For more adventure, there are snowmobiles for rent that will have you speeding over glittering fields of fresh snow.

Historic sites and gourmet treats in Kelowna

Even apart from the wine tours, Kelowna is a paradise for food-lovers. Arlo's Honey Farm offers varietal honey tastings at the Honey Tasting Bar, and shows myriad ways to use the honey and wax created by amazing bees. At Carmelis Goat Cheese dairy, you can sample a delectable range of complex cheeses and creamy gelato. Meanwhile, clinging to the side of Myra Canyon are the Myra Canyon Trestles. Once a portion of the Kettle Valley Railway, they are now open to hikers and bikers for spectacular views over numerous trestle bridges. Kelowna vacation rentals are great for relaxing after such culinary adventures and inspiring outdoor exploration.

Mild winters and music-filled summers

Kelowna is the envy of many Canadians for its relatively mild winters and warm summers with low humidity. Enjoy the crisp evenings and sunny days of fall by joining the festive farm-to-table scene and enjoying artisan cheeses, local wines, and farm fresh eggs. In winter, fresh powder on the mountains near Kelowna provide excellent runs for tobogganing, backcountry skiing, and snowmobiling. In spring and summer, you can stroll from Kelowna vacation rentals to local farmer's markets overflowing with fat cherries and ripe peaches, and city parks featuring live music concerts and public pianos where players can share their musical talent.

Parks and lakes in Kelowna

Only 4 hours from the urban sprawl of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, Kelowna is an oasis of natural beauty with a thriving cultural center. Perched on the green shores of Okanagan Lake, Kelowna is dotted with vineyards and bordered by Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park to the west and Trepanier Provincial Park to the east. While trekking and horseback riding in the parks around Kelowna, you may catch a glimpse of black bears, bald eagles, coyotes, and deer. These animals are beautiful but wild, so be cautious and enjoy from a distance.
