Overview

Central City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

You will enjoy a view of Okanagan Lake and Knox Mountain from the 7th Floor of the SKYE tower at Waterscapes. Our unit is on the opposite side of the pool area which provides you with a quiet escape whenever you want it. SKYE is a concrete building which tend to be quieter than wood-framed constructed buildings.

The building and all furnishings are brand new as of January 2010. It's like getting that brand new rental car with only 3km on it!! Just don't drive it like a rental, please! ;) The decor is modern and comfortable - designed to make you feel at home.

The master suite has a king bed, queen in the second and bunk beds are in the den. Curl up with a book on the balcony. Bring your laptop to take advantage of the free wireless internet. Relax in front of one of 3 brand new flat screen TVs. Park your car in the secure underground parkade and leave it there! There is so much to do within walking distance you will really feel like you are on vacation.

We have a storage locker in the parkade for your use as well. Bring your bikes and beach toys and store them in the locker while you are here.

The complex has a great common area with a new, fully equipped gym, billiard tables, outdoor kitchens, 2 hot tubs and outdoor pool.

We are across the street from one of the best beaches (Waterfront Park/Tugboat Bay) on Lake Okanagan. The boardwalk leads you along the entire downtown Kelowna waterfront. Walk to all the restaurants, shopping and entertainment establishments in Kelowna's vibrant downtown. The Grand Hotel, Spa & Casino is a 5 minute walk. Adjacent to the Grand is a public boat launch to provide you with easy access to Okanagan Lake.

We hope you enjoy Kelowna as much as we do.

Great Stay! The location was great, close and within walking distance of the waterfront, stores and restaurants. The home was clean and safe for the family. We would book this property again when staying in Kelowna

Owner's Response: Thanks Randy! We love it for the same reasons - sometimes, the car doesn't come out of the parkade for days as we can walk or bike to so many things. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for staying. Tim

Spectacular Condo in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was beautiful, clean, and stocked with everything needed for your home away from home, but the location is what makes this gem the real treasure. Walking distance to downtown and Knox mountain and spectacular views of the lake just can't be beat. Highly recommend this rental.

View the floatplanes and mountains

  • 5 of 5

April 12, 2012

The condominium is on the 7th floor of a new high-rise tower with views facing the mountains on two sides. A well-equipped apartment with two full bedrooms and a bedroom with bunk beds for children, open kitchen/dining room/living room, two bathrooms, every amenity required for a quality longer stay. The walk from the condominium, along the lake front is a pleasure to be repeated each day in residence.

We are long-time, well-travelled members of the travel industry nearing full retirement. We now travel as "in-residence" vacationers, preferring an apartment or house in the centre or within walking distance to centre of the community. We don't arrive by automobile and don't rent a car. We use our two feet and the local transit services. We prefer it that way as we come to better know the local citizens and merchants we come into contact with.

Kelowna is about people and scenery; a combination of mountains/semi-desert/vast lake unique to this planet. The community and valley can be tranquility central or active, whichever one prefers. The downtown core offers fine dining, quality shops, the magnificent old cinema (with three screens), a community services and entertainment area that is key to the downtown area. Kelowna citizens are blessed with fine services that are in place mainly because this is a tourism city. It is

important to keep in mind when considering the population of the city.

We will be back to Kelowna. We recommend the apartment and the hospitable reception/service of both the owner and his greeting staff.

The Okanagan is one of those very special places on an overcrowded planet. No time like the present to enjoy nature's bounty.
