Osoyoos is really the Napa Valley of Canada. There is hot weather in the summer with the wine country literally right at your door. If you are a foodie there are so many fresh fruit and vegetable orchards that make this a paradise for your culinary fixes. There is lots to do in all seasons - summer - golf & boating/walking/biking. Winter - Skiing and snowmobiling at Mt. Bawldy(to the east).
Snowbirds are welcome during the winter. We like to keep June and September for doing maintenance, but feel free to enquire as we like to be flexible.
We were excited to spend a few night in Osoyoos. The house is located at a great spot. It's close to the beach, a short drive away from Oliver, and it sleeps a large group. What was disappointing is that when we arrived at the house,
- we were hit by a wierd smell (I would describe it as a stinky guy's locker room)
- the back door was broken and the property manager knew about it and didn't say anything (someone almost hurt themselves when opening the door
- towels and table clothes left over from the last stay was hanging on the balcony
- spider webs and dead bugs were everywhere - on balcony, on every window and window sill, corners of rooms, even the water hose outside was covered in webs
-the TV wasn't working and the property manager expected us to wait for the cable guy (who wants to wait for the cable guy when we had plans to go out to wineries)
Then to top it all off, we were instructed to drop off the keys at a specified location since the office is closed on the weekend and the place wasn't even open.
This place has the potential to be great. The kitchen and living room area was spacious and the BBQ was handy to have.
Overalll, we all agree that we would not stay at the same place and would not recommend it to a friend.
I have to say that this was a fantastic vacation! There were 12 people in our group and not once did we feel crowded. Everybody got their own room wich was awesome, the house was clean other than some dirty towels left on the back patio. My only real complaint was the air conditioning, it worked well but it would make this horrible loud sound that would wake up the whole house in the middle of the night. we spoke with the owner and made sure to keep the water level low in the bucket downstairs, so we kept the air conditioner off durring the day and turned it on when we went to sleep. The Beach is absloutely perfect!! you can watch the kids play at the beach from the house and the water is shallow so the was little concern when the kids were at the beach. So this is a great place and I would reccommend this to any family or a group of friends. you are less than 5 min away from a golf course and less than 3 min away from rattlesnake park! Great place, Great Vacation!
There are many local wineries in this area. There is a movie theatre in Oliver, 12 miles away. There are several restaurants in town. DVD movie rentals downtown.
