Wake up each morning in paradise and enjoy a luxurious stay in our family-friendly resort property in the beautiful south Okanagan. Located in the middle of wine country this lovely, large condo is fully equipped for all your vacation needs. It is only steps away from a sandy beach, grocery store, pharmacy, visitor information centre, library, post office, hiking and biking trails, swimming, fishing, boating, parks, bird watching, restaurants, coffee shops, liquor stores, pub, antique stores, ... and only minutes away from wineries, flea markets and, of course, the famous Tickleberry's Ice Cream Store.
Okanagan Falls is a quaint, little town located on scenic Skaha Lake ten minutes south of Penticton in the beautiful, sunny, south Okanagan. It has one of the mildest climates in Canada and is known for warm dry weather and high annual hours of sunshine. A sandy beach, grassy sitting area, playground and spray park are less than two minutes away from your door. Come to relax or play ... it is a sun worshipper and golfer’s paradise!
With the largest square footage in the complex and two outdoor patios, there's plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our condo is a bright and spacious end unit overlooking the park, with Skaha Lake in the background. Being on the main floor is much cooler in summer, and when it's chillier outside, there's a gas fireplace and fireplace fan to circulate the air and keep you warm. As well, the park becomes your backyard when you can walk right out into it.
Enjoy the Okanagan winter, spring, summer or fall! You only need to bring your suitcases and settle into this modern, well-furnished three-bedroom condo.
