Overview

Okanagan Valley Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy a luxury 2 bedroom condo on Skaha Lake in the sunny South Okanagan. You will be minutes away from popular Penticton with all its attractions, yet in a much quieter area with the small town ambience and charm of Okanagan Falls.

Located on the south end of Skaha Lake, you will be enjoying one of the mildest climates in Canada, with warm, dry weather and very high annual hours of sunshine. Skaha Lake is one of Canada's warmest lakes, and has sandy beaches for excellent swimming, boating, and waterskiing.

The beach on the south end of Skaha Lake is just steps away. It has just been revitalized with a wonderful children's play structure and waterpark. As well as the great sandy beach and lake, there are large grassy areas with huge willow trees providing shade. Many other beaches are also in close proximity. The tourist information office across the street will give much additional information.

The amenities in the area are endless. There is a picturesque lagoon behind the condo, with paved paths and shady willow trees. Children love fishing in the lagoon - it's catch and release with a single non-barbed hook, and the best bait ever - bread dough! (Out of province kids will need a fishing license).

The property backs on to the Kettle Valley Railway Trail, which follows the western shoreline of Skaha Lake.

Every summer Penticton hosts the famous Okanagan Hockey School, and the Challenge Penticton Triathalon.

Spectacular golf courses, with the longest golf season in the Interior of BC, incredible Okanagan orchards, over 30 commercial estate and farm wineries to savour, and of course, the numerous lakes and beaches that the Okanagan is so famous for, all contribute to an unforgettable vacation experience.

When you are ready to wind down after a hard day's work of doing nothing, come home to your oak kitchen with side by side fridge, ceramic cooktop in the island, dishwasher, and every appliance you need. Every detail has been meticulously thought of. This air-conditioned unit has a comfortable queen sized bed in the master bedroom, a cozy double bed in the 2nd, and a queen sofabed in the living room. Both bedrooms have large walk-in closets. The bathroom has a floor-to-ceiling oak cabinet for storage, a shower, and a deep, comfortable tub for soaking. A generous sized laundry room with washer and dryer, ironing board and iron also offers additional storage.

If you have time to squeeze in one more decadent experience, head down 5 blocks to the world-famous Tickleberry's Ice Cream Parlour and Gift Shop, where you can savour the last rays of sunshine as you indulge.

What makes this condo unique

We love staying at our condo - we just have to drive up, and everything we could possibly need is already there. The 3 minute walk to the beach is so enticing - even if you just want to go for an hour, it's so close. And the Kettle Valley Railway Trail on the other side of the building goes all the way into Penticton. There is so much to do - hiking, biking, sitting at the beach catching up on reading, or driving around exploring the back roads. Our clients say they also love all the wineries and golf courses. I don't thing we will ever get bored of things to do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Okanagan Falls is a wonderful little town. The fact it's so peaceful with access to all the attractions within close proximity is a huge bonus and something we thoroughly enjoyed. The IGA was incredible ! We loved their fresh baked "something" every morning and fresh cuts of meat every evening. Your place was wonderful and had everything a home would need plus more. Thank you for accommodating us with everything we could ask for, we'll be back for sure. We treated your place like ours, with respect. I hope the maid was happy, I'm sort of a neat freak! I'll definitely be telling people about Ok Falls and your place specifically.

Okanagen Falls Condo

  • 4 of 5

Our condo was exactly as described. Wonderful location and close to everything. The beach is a short walk from the condo and has many amenities for our son. It was unfortunate that there were may forest fires nearby so we had to deal with smoke in the air most days. Even with that we had a most enjoyable time and would recommend your condo.

Perfect location for young family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here with our two young boys (under 5) in July. Location couldn't be beat - 2 mins to the lake with beach, playground and water park. The lake was warm and shallow, and beach was always fairly quiet with just other families with young kids. IGA is right across from the condo which was super convenient for groceries. The unit is very clean, spacious, and was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Also enjoyed biking along the kettle valley trail which is just steps away. Wonderful location, easy to get around to other areas like Penticton or Osoyoos for day trips. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!

Beautiful and very well stocked Condo. Everything you need for a fun beach day is available and the beach is just a few steps away! Nice clear, shallow water perfect for kids. Close to splash park and playground our 2 year old had a great time. Condo was very clean and well kept. Thank you, we look forward to coming again :)

Perfect family vacation rental!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it for anyone with small children. It was quiet and perfect for kids with the beach, water park and playground just across the street. The condo has a very well stocked kitchen and lots of bedding/ towels etc which makes it feel just like home!

We definitely look forward to enjoying this location again on a future vacation!

We just spent the last week in this wonderful condo. My husband and I were vacationing with our two teenage boys and the dog and found the place well equipped and well situated. We had a great bike ride to Oliver and a more challenging one to Penticton on the Kettle Valley trail. Nightly walks were a favourite! Would definitely recommend this place and hope to go back next summer!
