This unique Okanagan accommodation is located in a wonderful setting only 20 minutes from the US border, 30 minutes from Penticton airport, and 4 1/2 hours from Vancouver. Oliver is in the Sonora Desert, the northern most desert in North America! It's also known as the 'Palm Desert of Canada'.

Fairview Mountain Golf Club, rated 5th in the province, and Nk'Mip (pronounced "Inkameep") Canyon Desert Golf Course are under a 5 minute drive. 36 Hole Osoyoos Golf & Country Club, Sonora Dunes (next to award winning Nk'Mip Cellars), Twin Lakes Golf and St. Andrew by the Lake (9 holes) are within 15 minutes, and many more towards Penticton.

The hills and landscapes in the surrounding areas are beautiful, with stunning views. In the evening, enjoy fantastic star gazing & shooting stars after a tasty BBQ on the deck. Play bocce (Italian lawn bowling), corn toss, badminton or volleyball on the huge expanse of lawn. The downstairs games-room has a ping pong & foos-ball table, along with big screen TV available for your enjoyment. A dozen lounge chairs, 11 adirondacks, and large table with 10-12 cushioned chairs surround the 20' x 40' salt water pool deck, along with outdoor shower. The pool is heated with a sophisticated solar system and a heat pump, so if the weather's agreeable, the pool will be heated.

The 6 bedroom house, with wood floors throughout, has been completely re-decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary decor. Rental rates are from $54 - $82 per person per night, based on 8-12 people, and low or peak season. There's a large sun deck, with loads of outdoor furniture, umbrellas and a enormous BBQ. Hiking and biking all around, with just a 3 minute drive, or 15 minute walk to downtown Oliver. We are a working farm, so there are apple, cherry & walnut trees available for picking during season.

The resort also offers easy access to exceptional cross-country and snowshoeing trails. Oliver's own Mt. Baldy Ski Resort, reopened in 2015, and is a modest ski resort.

Just spend a wonderful week and this place was more than we could ask for. Linda and Joe have done an excellent job of make sure you have everything you need, don't have to bring anything. Very comfortable and most of was the most relaxing holiday we have had, even will lots of people. Lots for kids to do and lots for adults to do. Any problems they were answered and looked after promptly. Stayed here 8 yrs ago and the place has just got better. Look forward to coming back again. Loved it!!

We just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved every minute! The property was very spacious and clean (perfect for a family with kids as ours had so much fun) and the inside of the home was big, beautiful, and homey! We were so comfortable and any questions we had were promptly answered! Will definitely be back next year to make more memories! Very close to a lot of the wineries which was an added bonus;)

Wow, we were impressed by this place. The house was grand but cozy, comfortable and clean. Everything you would need in the kitchen was there. The pool was a welcome surprise by our kids after a hot day. The deck was big and had cushions for all the chairs. It was big and comfortable for a big group like ours. The view was amazing and the people there was very friendly and willing to help with any small problem we might have. We went for walks, bike rides and visiting wineries and enjoyed all of it. The book inside giving us lots of hints on where to visit helped us a lot. Also all the outdoor games we could choice from were very much appreciated. We will definitely be back!! Thanks Linda!

Crafting Weekend with the Ladies

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of mothers who like to craft and hang out and needed a venue that would accommodate 10 of us with room to sit or spread out on a table to craft, scrapbook, knit, etc...

We found a great place for that! It would have been perfect if we had access to the basement area from the upstairs. It rained all weekend and going outside to get to the basement really wasn't appealing but, overall, great location, well set up and we'd definitely go back for another round. Highly recommend for families and large groups.

Our family - sisters, brothers, children, parents, aunts, uncles, etc had the most amazing time staying at this fantastic property! The place was roomy enough for our large group, yet cozy enough for a smaller group, and oh so beautiful. The hosts were so terrific too.

Highly recommend
