Overview

Kelowna Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Pointe Beach Villas is a new (2007) building located on the northern premises of Lake Okanagan Resort(LOR) in West Kelowna. The Villas are well positioned on a “point”, in the more quiet, northern part of the property. Occupants are therefore provided with an unobstructed view of the lake.

Our Pointe Beach Villa unit is a large (1,600 s.f.), comfortable, 3 bedroom, 3 full bathroom condo. It has a well-designed open floor plan that optimizes the view of the lake. It can be seen from the kitchen, dining and living area and the master bedroom. The two secondary bedrooms overlook the resort’s executive golf course.

The main advantage of Pointe Beach is that renters have access to all the amenities offered by LOR.

How about a tennis game or par 3 executive golf, only a short walk from your villa? Or a swim in the pool, a soak in the hot tub, relaxing on the beach or jet skiing on the lake?

Do you have children? They will love the water trampolines and slides, playing beach volley ball, tennis, basketball or swimming in either the children’s pool or larger family pool.

Do you wish to spend some “free time” on vacation, unhindered by your children for a half or full day? You can place them in a professionally supervised kids or teens program. Then you can take off for a wine tasting tour or lunch at one of the wineries in or around Kelowna.

How about spending a day on the water, boating up or down the lake, or even water skiing with your children? You can rent boats at the LOR marina, as well as sign up for water skiing lessons.

Pointe Beach Villas are a great get-away for those who simply wish to relax or for those with an active lifestyle.

Our unit has been professionally furnished by an interior designer to LOR standards. The layout of the bedrooms allows the evenings to be quiet and secluded. The large master bedroom with ensuite contains a king size bed. It is located at the front of the unit overlooking the patio and lake. The two other bedrooms are separated from the living area at the back of the condo. One of these bedrooms has a king size bed with its own bathroom including shower and bath. The third bedroom has two single beds with access to the main bathroom across the hall. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and a DVD player and each bathroom is equipped with towels, soaps and shampoo. The kitchen is well appointed with lots of light, cupboards, granite countertops, a huge island with seating and a full complement of quality cookware. The dining area is designed for six people, however, can seat eight. The living room, with soda, love seat and reading chair overlooks the lake. It also contains a gas fireplace with a large flat screen TV and above DVD and CD players.

About Bruce Clark

Bruce and Helena Clark were born, raised and educated in Quebec (La Belle Province). We “immigrated” west for job opportunities, eventually settling in Edmonton, Alberta. Some twenty years ago, we finally travelled further west into British Columbia and discovered the Okanagan Region. We fell in love with it, in part, because it reminded us of the Eastern Township Region of Quebec (Les Cantons de l’Est) where Helena was raised and where we were married.

Bruce Clark purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bruce Clark chose Okanagan Valley

Our personal preference is the Kelowna area because it offers all the benefits of a lakeside tourist city with the ability to isolate yourself from the “hustle and bustle” if that is your wish.

We spent our first summer vacation in Kelowna in a hotel right across the street from Gyro Beach. That summer we found Lake Okanagan Resort – perfect for all the desires of a young family – something for everyone, including swimming in the lake or pool, beach sunbathing, boating, tennis, golf and more.

We rented accommodation for a number of years, until we finally decided to make a real commitment to Kelowna and LOR and purchase a timeshare. In 2010, we noticed that the units in a new building at LOR, Pointe Beach Villas, were being released for full ownership. We decided to “take the plunge” and purchase a three bedroom unit. We have not regretted our decision.

What makes this condo unique

We encourage you to share our “home away from home” when we are not using it – for one week or longer. Each of the four seasons offers a different experience at Point Beach Villas at Lake Okanagan Resort.

Our perfect first VRBO experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exceptional, with all sorts of small touches to make it feel like home. The views from the huge windows in the living room area and the covered deck are wonderful and make for a great way to start your day. Bruce and Helena went out of their way to help us through the VRBO process and the information they provided before our arrival and within the unit itself were very helpful.

Our visit was from September 10 to 19th 2016 and it was a great time to visit. The resort is quite slow at that time, so there was no problem just walking onto the challenging par 3 golf course on the resort, so it was perfect for my wife who doesn't golf much.

We made several trips into Kelowna to enjoy the shopping, restaurants and local wineries. Unfortunately we also had to take advantage of the BC health system, which was excellent. We visited a walk in clinic in Westbank and the Kelowna General Hospital. The services were topnotch and everyone we met was helpful and efficient. Having a beautiful, comfortable place to come back to really helped.

We would definitely come back. Thanks again to Bruce and Helena for making our first VRBO experience a pleasant one.

Beautiful, spacious condo with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 year old daughter and I stayed at this condo for a week in June. The condo is very spacious and has a wonderful layout. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. The views from the living room and deck are breathtaking! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this condo to anyone!

Bruce and Helena were wonderful hosts. They were always quick to respond and provided all relevant information we needed. We forgot one of our pillows at their condo and they went above and beyond to return it to some of our friends who live in Kelowna! They are just wonderful people :)

Great Lakeside Vacation for a Family

  • 5 of 5

Impressive, very well appointed and equipped accommodation, better than depicted. Fantastic wide views of the lake and night sky. Our family enjoyed spending their day at the resort, playing tennis and golf in the morning, swimming in the pool or lake in the afternoon. We,the seniors, appreciated the poolside patio restaurant/bar and the Tiki bar right on the beach. The grandchild and his parents enjoyed having their own space and bathrooms in this lovely 3 bedroom condo. The Okanagan Marina at the Resort beach is a great operation , providing dockage, SUPs, water bikes, kayaks, seadoos, and powerboats for reasonable rent. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

Hints. The hill down to the beach is a steep walk but one can drive down to drop off or pick up (no parking down at beach) and the resort does offer a service on call. There are some umbrellas available at the pool and the beach but these are few and not always available at peak times...so bring your own with a tie-down strap.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your week at our Pointe Beach Villas condo and the use of the amenities at Lake Okanagan Resort. The combination makes for arguably the best family vacation in the Okanagan. And the enjoyment spans all ages, as you explained - something for everyone. And thanks for the note about how to best navigate the steep hill to the beach. You explained well the options for non hill climbers! The on-site taxi service provided by LOR in the high season is necessary given the resort is built on the slope descending to the lake. We also plan to suggest to resort administration to ensure sufficient beach chairs and umbrellas are available for guests. Thanks again Bruce & Helena

A wonderful vacation in a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bruce's condo from July 16 to July 23 to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Our family joined us, and everyone loved the place. There was lots of room for everyone (5 adults and a 4 year old), so privacy was not an issue at all. The weather cooperated, so we were able to have most of our meals sitting on the balcony and overlooking the lake. The scenery was breathtaking. The property was well maintained, and all staff members were friendly and helpful. We used the gym a few times and also took advantage of the walking trails. We also visited a few wineries (about a 30 minute drive) and some local restaurants. There were numerous fruit stands with a fantastic selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. We went to Paynter's fruit stand (30 minute drive) where we were able to pick our own fresh peaches and apricots right off the trees. We also visited the Kangaroo farm just north of the airport (45 minute drive from the condo). I would recommend this as well especially if you have kids. You get to pet all the animals and hold the baby Joeys. The road into the property is called West Side road. It is a bit of a challenge due to construction, but if you follow the speed limits, you'll have no problem. It takes 18 minutes to drive it from the time you exit the highway until you pull into the property. We were advised initially that this road would be closed for 4 hours each week day due to blasting, but the company suspended this for the summer months until September 5th, so it is open all day.

There is a German restaurant in Peachland called Gasthaus that we went to twice for lunch. We sat on the patio with a view of the lake. The food was excellent quality with large portions and reasonable prices.

Bruce was excellent to deal with from start to finish. The condo is spectacular and well equipped with everything you need. It was very quiet and easy access to the parking lot. I would recommend this property to anyone, and I hope to return again.

Thanks again Bruce for trusting us to rent your property.

Owner's Response: Daryl: Many thanks for your very positive review. We agree that Pointe Beach Villas are arguably one of the best family vacation locations in the Okanagan. You were great guests, ensuring that you treated our condo as your own. And again, thanks for your efforts to repair the stove drawer. We hope to hear from you in the future. Best Regards Bruce & Helena

Fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this luxurious condo for a week in June and it was worth it. The place is gorgeous. It is right on the lake and the views from the living room and outside deck were fantastic. We were sad to have to leave. There is a full kitchen, so bring groceries. You will have to stock up down the road in Kelowna as there is no grocery store at the resort. The restaurant however has really good food. We will definitely consider coming back.

Owner's Response: Graeme, we are pleased you enjoyed your week long stay at our Pointe Beach Villas condo. We think Lake Okanagan Resort is one of the best family destinations in western Canada. And it will only be improving with the many upgrades that are being made by its new owner. Good to know: There is a small convenience store at LOR which offers the staples such as milk, bread and snacks along with movie rentals. We find it helpful in emergencies. Also good to know, the restaurant will sell off-premise beer and wine. We have used this service, last minute.

Beautiful and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

My two young adult children and I stayed at this condo at the end of May-beginning of June for a week and as one review mentioned the pictures truly don't do this vacation property justice. Stunning view! I have visited the Okanagan many, many times and this property was most wonderful. Lots of room for everyone to have their own space. Great bathrooms and what a wonderful soaker tub in the master bath, I loved it. My daughter enjoyed going to the pool, while my son and I enjoyed watching the Humming Birds and Ground Hogs from the massive window in the family room.

There is a bit of a drive to get to the property from the main road and the construction going on now (with road closures) made us a little more aware of the time, but nothing we couldn't handle. The water also became non potable and the last few days so we needed to boil water before we could brush our teeth with it. Just glad that didn't happen at the beginning of our stay. The airconditioning off the master bedroom is a tad noisy as well, but I got used to it.

Would we like to stay here again someday...absolutely. I would recommend this condo in a heartbeat!!

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our Pointe Beach Villas condo at Lake Okanagan Resort. It truly is a great place for a family vacation. As we informed you, 5 km. of Westside Road is being reconstructed south of LOR. Knowing that the road will be navigable at 70 km per hr. in a few years, makes the current delays worthwhile! In future, you may wish to access LOR from the north via the Westside Road turn-off just south of Vernon. Other guests have mentioned the noise from the HVAC unit located adjacent to the patio/balcony. Yes, you get used to it after a while. What we find works better is turning off the AC unit while we are using the patio/balcony, then turning it back on once we re-enter the condo.
