Why Louise Squires chose Okanagan Valley

We vacationed in Penticton every Summer for over 20 years and always knew that this is where we wanted to live.

What makes this house unique

The moment we saw this property for sale we knew we had to have it. The views are stunning. From the moment the Sun comes up over the mountains across the lake, until it finally slips over the hills behind you, your day can include it all. Look across the lake and pick out some of the Wineries you want to visit. There are 40 plus Wineries within a 20 min. drive! There are over 120 Wineries in the region! We are more than willing to give you a tour if needed. You have a lake on each end of the city with beautiful sandy beaches. There are 3 different picnic areas and boat launch just minutes away.

Great stay over looking the Lake!!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the rental for 2 weeks early May. Was only 2 of us so was a tonne of room. Bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. Kitchen was perfect for cooking meals and BBQ was used many times. Gorgeous view of the lake from the covered sitting area outside. Perfect spot to unwind after days of wine and sun.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

If it had been summertime I would have wanted to be near the water. Considering it being winter it was the perfect place with a very nice view of the lake. The house was very clean and spacious. Had everything for us to do our own cooking which was nice. It was the perfect place to have a family vacation and invite friends and family over for a meal, visiting and playing games. We really enjoyed our stay. The owners met us with a warm welcoming. I would recommend this place.

Our Okanagan Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We 3 ladies thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Squires House. It is a lovely home overlooking Okanagan Lake and we so appreciated how spacious and well appointed it was. Only a few minutes outside of Penticton, it was easy to get to after a day of sightseeing, winery touring and hiking. Loved the stunning views! Thank you Randy and Louise for your hospitality :)

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

The Squires house was perfect for all our whole family and friends. It had everything we needed plus it was so quiet with a beautiful view. We were there for the Ultra520 race and it was perfect. Easy to get to all race locations and events but far enough away to relax and not be disturbed. We had our dogs and kids and everyone was happy! We would return again for sure.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

The Squires House has an awesome view and is very spacious for a family of four! It is conviently located close to penticton that going to the beach or supermarket was super easy. We got to watch the air show from the deck and those jets flew right over our heads...it was incredible!The kids loved the adventure land park in penticton and my daughter and I tried the parasailing which was awesome! We got to relax on the beach in penticton while the kids played in the water but next time hubby and I would like to do a wine tour!
