Beautiful wide open spaces flooded with natural light. Post and beam construction home in central Penticton, with a view over the city and the surrounding mountains. Located in a very quiet and private neighbourhood. 3 bedrooms and a den, 2 bathrooms, large kitchen with an eating area, and a very large, open and bright living room with a gas fireplace and dining room. Hardwood floors throughout. A wall of windows in the living room and dining room let the beautiful Okanagan sunshine in. Large deck off the living room looks over the private pool and fenced back yard. Front yard is fenced also, and there is a very large driveway and double covered carport. Central location; easy access to all of Penticton's amenities, such as both Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake, the beaches, wineries, hospital, shopping, hiking, biking and rock climging. Apex Mountain Resort is 30 minutes away. Owner lives on site in separate apartment.
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) Lennie purchased this house in 2013
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.
Barbara's home is beautiful, well appointed and spacious but with a very cozy feel. We were two families enjoying a holiday getaway and ski vacation. This was the perfect spot! The beds are super comfy, the home is decorated in a lovely and attractive way. The sectional in the living room is so very comfortable and perfect for curling up with a good book, to watch a movie or enjoy the beautiful views out the full wall of windows overlooking the snowy foothills. We all loved our long soaks in the clawfoot tub after a full day of skiing. We enjoyed making delicious meals in the well appointed kitchen for our crew of 8 people (7 adults and one child). Our pup loved her time in the snow and the fenced in front yard made it easy and safe to let her out. We made use of the washer and dryer during our week long stay--a great convenience!
We highly recommend The Bench Market and Bad Tattoo Pizza place and the numerous micro breweries in the area. Apex ski area (20-30 min away) was a group favorite and all loved the expansive Big White resort (just under 2 hrs drive) for Skiing and Snowboarding as well.
We'd love to return to this wonderful home for another Okanagan adventure (summer or winter)! Thank you Barbara!
Our stay was rather short but excellent. There were four adults for two nights and we found Crazy Quail House extremely comfortable and very well equipped and appointed.
The location made everything in Penticton and the Naramata very accessible.
The neighbourhood was quiet and it was a bonus to start each day with the living room flooded with light and the spectacular mountain view.
Our host, Barb, was very pleasant and available should we have had questions or needed anything....neither was the case.
I would recommend Crazy Quails House without any reservation.
Barbs house was perfect for our family vacation. Lots of comfortable sleeping space, and a gorgeous family room and kitchen. We didn't use the pool, but it was also a lovely addition.
Everything was extremely clean and well stocked . Barb welcomed us , and check in was very easy.
I would highly recommend Barbs home. It was a pleasure. Thanks again, Pat and family
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!!
The Gillespie's - July 2016
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!!
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!
A favorite for everyone; float the channel!

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
