                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Joanne & Dave love to travel too, and appreciate welcoming accomodations, so we have kept that in mind as we have developed our own executive vacation rental home. We started from scratch in 1984, own and operate Briteland Holdings Ltd.. We are very involved in our community, especially in Rotary. We love sports and like to take advantage of all that our area has to offer. Vernon is a year round sports paradise, with world class facilities really handy.

                          Why the Owner Chose Vernon:
                          We like to build things, businesses, lives and homes. We are keen about our environment and ecology, and have incorporated many energy efficient features into our Jemma Homes. Turtle Mountain is a unique and new development in Vernon. It is a classy area of town, and really handy to all the amenities, including sports, shopping, entertainment and dining.
