ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed at this property for a week in late July. The weather was fantastic (happened to be the hottest week of the summer). The house was neat, tidy and well cared for by the attentive owners. The owners booked us in with a tour and went over all the details of the house thoroughly. Views off the living areas were amazing and kept us mesmerized every night as we enjoyed Okanagan wine on the deck. The property is close to downtown with easy access to parks, the beach and restaurants. Our kids loved Davison Orchards, a great stop for families and kids alike. Would definitely stay here again!

Great Family Home
Great Family Home
The home for us was in a perfect location as our family attended a wedding in north west Vernon. The home was very spacious and exceeded are expectations with respect to the web site and was very well maintained. The owners were very helpful in both the check in and check out process and we would definately recommend this property to friends and relatives. We were mostly busy with the wedding over the weekend but we did enjoy hiking up Turtle Mountain with the grand children. We also had time to visit some of the wineries in the area and enjoyed the view over the valley from the rear deck

Owner response: Debbie and her family were in town for a wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort. Her thought was to book a home at Predator Ridge, next to Sparking Hill, but noticed that the area was out of Vernon aways. Our property worked out perfectly for them, as they were just minutes from the many activities that they did during their stay. The great room concept and the large deck are a really nice way to visit with everybody, yet there is enough privacy with the two floors and sound insulated bedrooms, if you need some quiet time.
Attended our neice's wedding in Vernon and the home worked out perfectly. The home is all found with just about everything you could need.. Well maintained. great view. This home would be hard to beat. We know where we will be staying in Vernon the next time the extended family is looking for a great place to stay. Owners very pleasant and helpful.

Mike and Sue and family in Vernon for 90th BDay!
Dave and Joanne, We enjoyed our stay in your house on Turtle Mountain in Vernon. The view was absolutely spectacular with every morning waking up to 12 to 15 deer in our backyard. The house was beautiful also, very comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to host a dinner party for 12 for our family in BC with no problem. We would highly recommend this rental home.

We were fortunate to stay @ Dave & Joanne’s Turtle Mountain vacation home for most of June 2011. . The home is fantastic - it is a spacious, well appointed house. The amenities of the house (appliances & furnishings) are first rate. The views of Vernon & surrounding hills & the north arm of Lake Okanagan from the full length deck are incredible. There are great restaurants & shopping just 5 minutes to downtown. We were warmly greeted by Dave & Joanne upon arrival. Dave is a veritable fountain of information on all things Vernon!!! We thoroughly enjoyed staying on Turtle Mountain. Our “staycation” was awesome. We highly recommend this home as the place to stay in Vernon. Mark and Gale

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.
