Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at your condo was an excellent one!! Our family enjoyed our stay and found your condo to be a very beautiful, comfortable one. It was a lot larger than what it looked like in the photos. Your framed photos on the walls were awesome and we enjoyed reading the write-ups for each.

We also found the area gorgeous and the lake and beach to be very clean. Our grandkids had a great time!!

Thanks so much for allowing us to rent your condo and we look forward to visiting there again next year!

Amazing Home Away From Home!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay!

We were in the Okanagan Falls area for a wedding and opted to stay at the Grapevine versus a regular hotel. What an excellent choice we made! This condo was absolutely perfect for us. We had 4 adults and 2 children stay at the condo and we all fit very comfortably and easily.

Upon arrival, the condo was very clean, neat and organized - ready for us to stay. The parking stall is right below the front balcony, so you are easily able to toss things down to your spouse when they forget! The master bedroom is incredible! Huge. We fit our infant's playpen very easily at the side of the room while still making excellent use of the his and hers closets and bathroom with jet tub! The queen sized mattress was the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on - better than my own! The second bedroom was perfect for the grandparents - another very comfortable queen sized bed and private pass-through to the second bathroom. The third bedroom was perfectly designed for children and our 2 year old was able to make himself right at home. The bunk bed was comfortable and perfect.

The condo has a wall air conditioner that is effective at cooling off the main area of the condo. The bedrooms stayed a bit warm but fans were provided for each room, which made a huge difference.

We enjoyed looking at the photography done by Mark that hung on the walls and reading the information about each landmark. This feature certainly makes the Grapevine unique! More than "just a place to stay". It's got character and a story.

The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals, entertain a few guests and feel right at home.

The location is outstanding! Park, beach and splash pad nearby, views of the river right out the kitchen window.

"Checking-in" and "checking-out" was a breeze. Mark and Julie responded quickly to emails and were easy to communicate with.

We were not disappointed at all. I almost don't want to leave such a positive review as it may draw more people to stay at the Grapevine and potentially make it harder to book when we want to come back! We would most definitely stay here again. Thank you for having us as your end of August 2016 guests!

Perfect Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days in this very well-appointed suite. It was very comfortable, clean and the layout was perfect for our family. The kitchen is large & well equipped with ample dishware, glassware and cutlery; many pots & pans and small appliances. The 3 bedrooms have very comfortable mattresses and there is no shortage of linens, including towels and face cloths.

The location couldn't be more perfect! The playground & beach is very close by. The designated swimming area is shallow & excellent for little ones. Great walking paths along Lake Skaha. Lots of family activities in Penticton, the Kettle Valley Railway is a must and for the wine lovers, wineries abound in Okanagan Falls, Oliver, Naramata Bench, to name a few areas. Because of the location, one can be busy by travelling short distances for activities (Penticton - 15 to 20 minutes away) or quiet by staying in the condo/unit proximity enjoying the beach and walking trails along the lake. And, don't forget to make a stop or two to Tickleberry's for a delicious ice cream treat. A very comfortable and short walk from the condo.

A review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the owners, Mark & Julie. They are excellent to deal with, very responsive to our booking request and attentive to any questions you may have. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with them. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Great location for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at The Grapevine. We found the condo very welcoming and equipped with everything we needed for our stay with our 3 young children and Grandma. The location was wonderful, we especially enjoyed the park with pond just down the path from the building, and the proximity to the grocery store and playground was very convenient. We also loved the central location of Okanagan Falls, we could easily travel to Osoyoos or Kelowna for the day, stopping along the way to hike or visit wineries. The owners were wonderful to deal with and their excellent communication made booking quick and easy. We highly recommend The Grapevine as a home away from home in the okanagan.

Great Place and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there with a friend for 4 days. The unit was beautifully furnished, and had everything we needed, WIFI, Cable, BBQ, laundry etc... There was an IGA in the plaza next to the unit. Only 18 minutes to Penticton. If we visit the area again would definitely stay here again. Owners were also great and easy to deal with.

Thank you Mark and Julie

Fabulous family location

  • 5 of 5

We are still surprised at how great this place was, it fit our family of five plus two grandparents without issue. It was obvious the owners took care to make our stay comfortable and easy. The views from the balconies/windows were beautiful. The highway was quiet, we did not notice it from within the condo. The location was so easy to enjoy our time, with a clean and not-so-crowded beach, spraypark, playground all one block away, as well as IGA, post office and transit. We were on the KVR pathways daily whether on foot or bike, for a short stint or all the way to Penticton return. We even enjoyed a couple hours of downtime in the library downstairs. So many wineries to see nearby, fruit stands and don't forget to stop by Tickleberry's ice cream stand daily! I look forward to returning to this very place next summer!
