Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for for opening your home to us for the Ironman week. It was the perfect place to train, spectate & also relax both before & after the race. The house was perfectly equipped & made a fantastic home away from home. You have a lovely piece of paradise & we are greatful to have shared it for a week.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Canada Day and we're so glad we did! The best part is having the lake a stone's throw away. Our group included young babies, and they loved dipping their toes in the lake while the adults lazed around on floaties. We couldn't have asked for a better location!

The home itself features everything you would need. Our group loved the renovated kitchen as it made it easy to have several people prep and cook at the same time. Also, the A/C in the house made our stay very comfortable since it was a scorching 38 degrees outside! We all commented on how it was more comfortable staying here than sleeping in our non-A/C homes. Would highly recommend this place!

Peaceful and tranquil...beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over spring break, the place was beautiful and so relaxing. We are looking at booking this place for a time this summer so we can enjoy the lake. Our kids played for hours on the sandy beach making castles and having fun. We enjoyed sitting on the patio having our lunch looking out at the lake. We can't wait to come back and swimming in the beautiful lake. I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO HAVE A GREAT VACATION IN THE OKANAGAN!!!

Our family really enjoyed our stay here and we are already planning to come back next summer. Very clean,and what more could you want with the lake just footsteps away. I especially loved the early mornings sitting out on the beautiful deck listening to the sounds of nature and the lake. You really can't beat this location as it's so close to all the ammenities. We strongly recommend, worth every penny! Thanks you for sharing your paradise on Skaha Lake. Thanks to the owner for all the touches of home and for ideas of what to do in the area...also the wineries are amazing!!! See ya later, Blasted Church and more.
