Penticton house description

Penticton's first legally licensed vacation rental, Casa del Sol is a delightful Penticton 2-bedroom vacation rental cottage which is meticulously maintained and fully equipped. It is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in the centre of Penticton and is suitable as a getaway for couples and for families on vacation. This Okanagan Valley accommodation is a five-minute stroll along Penticton Creek to downtown, Okanagan Lake, the Kettle Valley Trail, the Art Gallery, the Casino and to many parks. A large, fenced private garden, spacious patio and gazebo provide seating in the sun or shade for barbeques, sunning and relaxing, and a large grassy area allows children to play safely. The owners live just 2 blocks away and take great pride in maintaining a spotless and friendly environment on a quiet street. All conveniences are provided including air conditioning in the summer and heating and electric fireplace in the winter.

Penticton is a beautiful small city located in the Okanagan Valley between Skaha Lake and Okanagan Lake, both offering wide sandy beaches for swimming, sunning and water sports. There are over 130 wineries in the area, each one unique and offering world class wines. For Fall and Spring wine festival accommodation, Casa del Sol is a perfect base. Hiking, cycling, golfing, water sports, and a lakefront casino are all within easy access of the cottage. Apex Mountain offering downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and alpine skiing is a 35-minute drive away.

The unique benefits of this Penticton Vacation Accommodation Include: convenient location for access to all amenities and local attractions, meticulous care, private, relaxing back yard in an area that sees over 2000 hours of sunshine a year. Easy to reach by car, plane or bus. Penticon Airport provides three-times daily flights to Vancouver and a direct daily flight to Kelowna, and Kelowna Airport is an hour away. The Greyhound Bus Line also serves Penticton. A scenic drive from Vancouver is approximately 4.5 hours and Calgary is approximately 8 hours by car.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We purchased this little house in 2007 and completely refurbished it from top to bottom putting our carpentry skills and design talents to good use. We had moved to Penticton in 2005 and fell in love with the beauty of the Okanagan Valley. Our goal is to provide a relaxing and comfortable home with all the conveniences to make you feel at home. The compliment we most love to hear is; 'you thought of everything!' In December 2010, we became the first legally licensed vacation rental in Penticton.

Why the Owner Chose Penticton:
We had always loved the little flat roofed houses that are common in this area so when this little house came up for sale on our street we purchased it for a rental. However after putting 6 months of work and money into it, we realized we wanted to share it with friends and family and others who would appreciate the work we had done. The house is a natural for a vacation rental as it is so close to the beach and downtown areas. For the first three years we offered our little vacation rental house just by word of mouth and since 2010 we have listed on VRBO which had been highly recommended to us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Convenient location to access all amenities and local attractions, meticulous care, private, relaxing back yard. 4 fluffy bathrobes provided; also fresh ground coffee, tea and cooking spices always on hand.
