Why Aileen Houston chose Okanagan Valley

Gorgeous Orchard with spectacular cherry tree, apricot tree, 2 plum trees, pear tree, 2 apple trees.. Loads of light as house has an abundance of windows.

The suites transition seamlessly from the kitchens to the decks and outdoor dining under the Cherry Tree or the Golden Rain Tree beside the fountain; perfect for enjoying morning coffee, sipping wine, or bbqing.

Great neighbourhood close to downtown, and wineries. KVR Trail is right across the road which is perfect for cycling, running, walking the dog, etc.

The weather in Penticton is the best in Canada. Orchard Suites is close to the beach and the Penticton Marina. Okanagan Lake is 80 miles long and is perfect for boating as you can easily moor in lots of quaint places, like Naramata, Summerland, Peachland, Kelowna, and lots of parks and coves that are beautiful and peaceful.

What makes this apartment unique

Everything is provided that you need to enjoy a week or longer at Orchard Suites. And the weather is the best in Canada.

Vacation value

  • 4 of 5

The Pear Suite at 104 Lower Bench Road in Penticton is not fancy. It is a modest two bedroom apartment with a well equipped, newer kitchen, comfortable beds and a management that assures the place is clean. It is situated very close to town and to the wineries north of town. Parking can be a little tight but it is sufficient and overall this is a good value for what you get. I would return and recommend it to others.

Nice Place to stay in Penticton

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed staying in the Pear Suite in the Orchard Suites in Penticton. The bedrooms were large with comfortable beds, the kitchen was large and well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and the bathroom was clean and functional, with lots of towels for us to use. The living room was small, more of a wide hallway, but we spent very little time there because of the great weather and a variety of activities to do in Penticton. There is a deck with a barbeque opening onto a good sized yard. A bonus was the plum tree loaded with tasty fruit right off the deck. It is in a great location, and just across the street was the KVR trail, which is a great walking and biking trail lined with orchards.The house was only a few minutes from the beach and the marina.

The only criticism was the sprinkler system that came on two evenings we were there between 9 and 10 pm. Both evenings we were coming home just as the sprinklers started, and there was no way to get into the suite without getting soaked.

Overall, we enjoyed the suite and our time in Penticton. The owners were friendly and helpful, and we would certainly book this location in future years if we head back to Penticton.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Murray and Ellen and your 2 children. It was very nice to host you! Sorry about the sprinkler system. Wish we didn't have to irrigate at all, but alas the 7 fruit trees would suffer. The best time to irrigate is at the end of the day and the noise from water running late has been an issue for other guests trying to sleep so 9 til 10 pm seemed like the best compromise. After your concern though, we'll change it to 10 til 11pm instead. Thanks for the feedback. Aileen

Wonderful peaceful rental suites

  • 4 of 5

The owners were friendly, helpful and informative. We had a little problem with the parts in the toilet tank giving out during our stay. We informed the owners, and they had it all fixed up like new before we got back from our day out touring. The yard is beautiful and there was lots of space for us and our three dogs who traveled with us. I would definitely stay here again.
