Welcome to our vacation home! We are so excited for you to come join us in beautiful Penticton, BC.

Your vacation house is nestled away in one of the best neighbourhoods in Penticton. It is located only 2 blocks from the main public sandy beach on Skaha Lake. You can actually hear people in the lake from our house. Walk your kids to the outdoor water park and playground. There is tennis, basketball, volleyball, and hockey courts steps away. The boat marina and launch are located close by next to the main beach.

This is a fully furnished home with 3 bedrooms, and 1 bathroom. The house has a very open floor plan and sits on over a 1/4 acre of flat land (all grass). The back and sides of the backyard are fully fenced.

Your vacation home is tastefully decorated to have a beach house feel. And will be very clean upon your arrival. The furnishings are all brand new! And it is a non- smoking house.

The dining area has french doors that walk right out onto the patio. The kitchen is fully equipped with all dinnerware and cooking supplies. It has brand new stainless steel appliances: stove, oven, fridge, dishwasher, and microwave. Also a toaster, coffee maker, and kettle.

In the rooms there is brand new furniture and bedding. 2 queen beds, a double, and sofa bed. Each room has a side table, dresser and closets.

The bathroom has a tub/ shower combination, toilet, vanity and will be stocked with bath towels (not beach towels).

Other amenities include a flat screen TV with cable, WIFI internet, outdoor patio set and BBQ, air conditioning and fans for those hot summer days.

A playpen, exersaucer, umbrella stroller, high chair, an iron, ironing board and on site laundry machines.

Why Jason and Kristy Zacharias chose Penticton

We own 3 rental properties and have been renting our houses to vacationers for over 5 years. We love meeting new people and having them come stay in our home. We hope that you would come enjoy our house as much as we do.

What makes this bungalow unique

We just love how close our house is located to the beach. One of our favorite things to do is to walk, swim, play tennis, rollerblade, or ride our bikes along the main beach.

Lovely beach house, could use a few additions

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for 7 days at the end of July 2017 and overall, it was a good stay. The house is tastefully decorated and definitely has a beach house feel. It was a good size and layout for our family of 5 (kids 10, 9 & 3). It's best feature is definitely the location and proximity to Skaha beach. The air conditioner cooled off the kitchen and living room nicely and the fans in the bedrooms helped to keep the bedrooms cool. The beds were very comfortable, with soft sheets, and we had great sleeps. It was nice to have a washer and dryer on site to wash our beach towels and bathing suits every night. We also made use of the Wifi and the cable. 

 

The backyard is huge but we didn't spend any time there because there was no shelter from the sun, and no activities / games available. The patio table was nice but it gets direct sun from 7am - 8pm so it was very hot. We ate dinner out there one night, but it wasn't until 7:30pm, once the temperature had dropped some.

 

While the house was stocked with all of the essentials, there were a few "extras" that we've experienced in other VRBO's that would have been nice to have here:

- Cooking spray, aluminum foil, ziploc bags, condiments or spices (there was s&p)

- No Kleenex

- No ice cube trays (We were told that there used to be some but must have been taken by a previous guest)

- We were unable to get the BBQ to heat up and had to rely on the kitchen stove and oven to cook all of our meals. (We were advised that we'd receive some compensation for this but haven't received anything).

- The shower had very low water pressure.

- The living room furniture was not comfortable - futon was really loud, squeaky and thin. The couches are very firm.

- The house is a good size for a family with children, but there are no real amenities for children:

        - no plastic dishes or small cups

        - no board games

        - no dvd player

        - no backyard toys / games or beach toys

 

There were some nice touches in the house (complimentary bottle of wine, fresh flowers) but I would have rather passed on these to have some kitchen condiments and Kleenex.

 

We ordered food from Skaha pizza one night and it was excellent. Gilligans is great for ice cream en route to the beach - more flavors and much cheaper than Tickleberry's that's right on the beach.

 

We did enjoy our stay but think it could really be a 5-star with a few minor additions/changes as noted above.

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

We were staying at the house due to it being very close to some of the wineries...we were attending a wedding at one of the said wineries!

It was very clean, very well equipped, and when we found ourselves in the middle of a heat wave (40ºC at one point), we requested another fan for the bedrooms (as there were only two fans and three bedrooms), the owners told us to buy a fan and they would reimburse us, which I thought was very kind of them!

The garden was big, well kept, and clean, and there are no bad things I can say about this place!

Hopefully if I ever go back to Penticton, I will most definitely stay here again!!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the house. We now have a fan for each of the bedrooms. :) Hope to see you again soon.

Spacious and Kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

Perfect vacation home! The house was very warm and inviting and was perfect for a family with young children. The house was spotless and was well stocked. The air conditioning was SO nice. And the backyard had lots of room to play. The parks and Skaha lake were close and the owners were easy to deal with. We can't wait to come visit again.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this lovely home. The house had a huge open floor plan and was warmly decorated with a beach house feel. It was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The patio was great for BBQ'ing and the pergola had patio lights for cozy evenings. The backyard was big enough so we could play badminton or volleyball. The lake, marina, volleyball courts, and tennis courts were all within a short walk. The owners were so friendly and were prompt at any questions we had. We highly recommend this house.
