About Emily Spencer

This property is owner built, owned and occupied. We live in the main house with our two young boys, Oma, the dog and a cat.

The vacation rental is a carraige home above our garage.

My husband and I grew up in the Okanagan but met in Vancouver where we lived for 11 years before returning to Penticton to slow down from the busy city life, start a family and enjoy all that Penticton has to offer.

Having built and lived in one of pentictons most desirable areas over the last seven years, we have finally built our dream home. The neighborhood in which we live is mixed, from young families to retirees who have raised there own families here. Even though we are in the heart of Pentictons summertime action the neighborhood has a strong sense of community and friendliness. We look forward to sharing the experience of Penticton life with you.

A relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lovely vacation rental is located in the heart of everything. You can simply park your car and walk to most destinations. The peacefulness of sitting on the deck with a glass of wine and soaking up the view was relaxing and enjoyable.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this suite on our recent stay in Penticton. It was very well appointed with everything we needed. The location was perfect for both the beach and wine tours and some nice morning walks. We loved the outdoor space in the evenings and would definitely stay again.

Great unit close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice now. The location is fantastic - close to the beach and downtown. It is very private which we like, and just the right size for the two of us. The kitchen is very well stocked, and besides providing dishes and cookware, there are lots of little extras like tea and olive oil and spices. There is a motel style a/c unit that keeps the unit cool which is needed for Okanagan summers. The owners are great to deal with and even accommodated a very late checkout for us which we really appreciated!

Great condo - excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The location was very convenient, just a walk away from the beach and close to everything. The AC was much appreciated, and full sized kitchen made it easy to make our own meals. We also spent a lot of time out on the balcony. The owner was welcoming and very helpful. Highly recommended!

Fantastic location - modern, clean apartment

  • 4 of 5

This beautifully presented apartment is in a fantastic location - only took us 2 minutes to walk to the beach and 10 minutes to walk to Main Street with all the shops and cafes.

It was bigger than the photos made it look which was a pleasant surprise. The balcony was a nice place to sit and relax and was shaded in the heat of the day. The air conditioning was fantastic - we were there in the middle of summer.

Emily was an excellent host, extremely welcoming and helpful. The apartment is connected to the main house (at the back of the garden) however it felt very private.

Overall we thought it was great value for money.

The only problem would be if you had mobility issues - the entrance is at the top of a steep set of metal stairs (the apartment is above a garage). It was not a problem for us, just something to consider if you are in a wheelchair or find stairs difficult.
