Nice home&locatn;Many deficiencies&Poor Service;Poor value(xtra fees not listed-long w/e,xtra ppl)

  • 3 of 5

Our grp has rented high-end homes in the Okan. for>10yrs.Disappointed!

PROS

-Best view in Penticton:views of Skaha&Okan.Lake

-Enjoyed pool,hot tub&outdoor spce

CONS

-Poor value compared to other high-end homes(xtra fees for>12ppl incl infants&toddlers, long w/e)

-Main issue we experienced was poor service/response to our concerns frm the responsible agent,Melissa.Melissa has a pleasant manner but didn’t always respond to our e-mails when we raised concerns. When she did respond,she either dismissed our concerns(“noted”) or didn’t directly resolve the issue.We found MANY issues&wanted good communication on a resolution for major ones that either impacted our enjoyment of the ppty or posed safety concerns.Listed below are main concerns

-Poor communication from on-site rep

-Only 1 key given for our grp of 5 families–difficult for ppl to move in/out of ppty freely

-Poor house cleaning:dust bunnies(staircase & running board),cobwebs&some bugs behind sofas.Both fridges filled with past tenants perishable food(ie ice crm in freezer,exp’d condiments&juice).Little pantry space for our items b/c full from past tenants &had exp’d items.BBQ v.dirty (grill was fine).Leftover swimming trunk&beer can btl found on balcony.

-Inadeq.supply of dishes(esp LG sizes for big grps)&towels(we were told we would be given 1pp but didn’t get this)

-Defective AC in games rm(rm w/ 2 sets of bunk beds)-not mentioned in ad.Fan provided was broken.We used this rm for most of our kids as a sleeping area&NO AC made it uncomfortable.Agent told us to open the window.

-Defective D/W–soap dispenser broken.Agent told us to run D/W by placing pod in the bottom of machine which didn’t result in clean dishes.We resorted to paper plates/bowls.

-Both bunk beds had missing/broken slats

-Door to hot water tank unhinged.On-site rep attempted repair but when 1 of our grp members touched it,door came right off(unsafe)&could have harmed a child

-1 of BR shower drs came off track/unsafe&we had to be v.cautious

-INET connection had issues when >3 dev were connected to the WIFI N/W

-Outdr shower had no hot water-inconvenient if you have kids getting out of the pool.On-site rep told us we could have turned on the breaker ourselves which we didn’t feel was our place to do so.Rep turned on breaker but NO hot water ever came out&was not repaired during our stay.

-BBQ ignition button didn’t work.Advised to use BBQ lighter–but UNSAFE b/c you need to lift the grillπlot hole covered by their stonework

Owner's Response: Amy, Once again, I am very sorry our home was not to your expectations. We do our very best to accommodate our guest. The property is thoroughly cleaned and inspected after each guest departure and attentively prepared for each arrival. All major deficiencies reported are dealt with as quickly as possible, with as little disruption to the guest’s visit as possible (unless of course there is a serious concern for safety!). The dishwasher has since been fully replaced, and the hotwater tank serviced. Of the 18 emails received during the course of guests stay, 11 responses were sent in reply. Three times responses were not sent, instead, the property manager was dispatched to review the deficiencies. He arrived within 30-45min of the email being received. We value your feedback, and will use it to ensure future guests have deeper enjoyment of our home!

Penticton Ironman vacation at its best

  • 5 of 5

12 of us stayerd for Ironman week 2012. What a way to end off the summer. We have stayed at other high end properies in the okanagan and nothing compares to this estate. House is in great shape with all the amenites that you would ever think of. One extra benefit that we did not know about are the numerous hiking trails that you can get to directly from the property

WOW, in the city yet extremely private

  • 5 of 5

I would have never believed a place like this existed in Penticton. The long steep driveway takes you to a private oasis overlooking everything. House is fully equipped including some crazy home automation. The best part is lounging around on the pool deck all day. Will definitely try and get back here next year .
