About Barbara Davis

Born and raised in the Okanagan, I have an enduring love and knowledge of the local area and people. For 12 years I owned and operated a boutique lodge at Apex Mountain Resort, just 30 minutes from here. I found I really missed the lifestyle, so went on the search for the perfect house to renovate and provide fantastic and comfortable vacations to families visiting this beautiful area. I am an avid traveler, and have just returned from an inspirational journey through Africa. I hope that you will enjoy this beautiful home as much as I.

Barbara Davis purchased this house in 2013

Why Barbara Davis chose Okanagan Valley

I knew this was the one, immediately after stepping in the door the first time. The windows letting in all the natural light, the views, the hardwood floors, the high ceilings, post and beam construction. Then I found out it also had an in-ground super private pool, all located in a nice quiet family neighbourhood. I was hooked, and I hope you will fall in love with this home as I have.

Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house is extremely well equipped with all the staples so we only had to buy food. The bedrooms are lovely and the beds are comfy. We felt right at home immediately. The kids loved the pool and could have spent everyday just hanging out in it! We really appreciated the recycling set-up. This is a great property for a family! We hope to get back again some day!!

Best vacation home we could have asked for!

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend myself and seven of my girlfriends rented out Barb's home. Naturally, we were a little worried that the moment all of us got together the volume would be too much for them to bear...we were wrong! Barb and her daughter were so wonderful and accommodating. They were easily accessible whenever we needed them but also gave us the space to make some of the most memorable experiences we have together to date. The house was spotless and well taken care of, the pool was the perfect size and so beautiful, and the atmosphere was amazing. I would recommend this home to anyone, old or young, looking for a place to vacation at! We had the most amazing time. Thank you Barb!!

Very Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 of us stayed here for 3 days while skiing Apex in beginning of February. I was instantly impressed with the large dining area/living area. Everything was very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was easily big enough for all of us and we cooked our own food for breakfast and dinner every night.

Great place for a large group of people!

Perfect Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect property. We came to watch our son play hockey for the vees. It is a great location minutes away from most things. I enjoyed the large kitchen and dining area. We did a lot of cooking and were able to seat all of our family and a few extra players at the dinner table. The sofa was large enough for all of us to watch movies together. And the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this sweet property to all! Barbara was awesome!

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $386
Pet Fee $39 + Tax
Tax Rate 5.0%

When booking, please carefully check the currency shown. Although you may assume the rate is shown in Canadian dollars, it is sometimes shown in US$. Somewhere in the middle of the rental information pages, there is a tiny icon showing a US flag, meaning the rates are defaulting to US$. Change this to Canadian dollars. I have submitted several requests to VRBO to change this, but to date, it hasn't changed. Sorry in advance for the confusion

Notes:
Perfect for the summer vacation rental, but also an excellent ski vacation rental. Rentals are difficult to find at Apex but the house is only 30 minutes drive from Apex. I also have had doctors on locum at the hospital which is only 2 blocks away, groups here for conferences and events. The house is available for rentals all year round!
