Property description

Welcome to Lago Vista-our slice of paradise on beautiful Skaha Lake. We offer a custom built, tastefully furnished 3000 square foot 3 level 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with amazing views from all levels. It is a great set-up for 2 families with 2 living areas on separate floors.

Main floor has a wonderful open floor plan with full focus on the lake as soon as you turn the key & step in the front door! Sunken living room has comfy leather furniture, 50 inch flat screen TV, fireplace, built-in library of books and it opens to full length LAKEFRONT deck with seating for 5. Fully equipped kitchen with large island/eating bar with seating for 4, high end stainless appliances, 5 burner gas range with convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge, professional ice maker and dining area with seating for 8. Powder room on main, plus convenient laundry room with new washer/dryer and large mud room set up to accommodate skis, bikes etc.

Upper floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have down pillows and quality mattresses. Master bedroom retreat has romantic private LAKEFRONT balcony with bistro set, queen size bed, walk-in closet & large ensuite with stand-up shower & soaker tub. 2 additional bedrooms have double beds with loft areas and adjoining full bathroom with tub and shower. All bedrooms have space for portable cribs/playpens.

Lower level has a spacious second living room with 55 inch flat screen TV, DVD player, bar area with sink, bar fridge, ice maker, games area with table and chairs for 6. 4th bedroom down has queen size bed, full bathroom with shower & shower seat which is great for grandmas and grandpas. The lower level also has a wall of sliding view doors that open to 3rd patio with gas BBQ, patio table and seating for 5.

We have a lakeside patio with pergola that seats 6 and is just above the beach and lake. We also have seating on our sandy beach.

Our home has great amenities including air conditioning, built-in vacuum, parking for up to 3 vehicles, Cable TV, WI-FI.

Have a boat or seadoos? We have a mooring buoy & new boat dock.

Lago Vista has great outdoor options. From having your morning coffee off the main floor balcony, to ending your evening star-gazing off the topmost balcony, we have the best of all worlds. Relax and watch the kids in the fenced & gated grassy yard or enjoy the day at our lakeside patio. Feel the sand in your toes on our lovely beach or sunbathe at the end of our dock, it is all up to you! The beach and lake gradually slopes so is perfect for young kids to children to wade into, plus we have a new dock with a swim ladder which is perfect for older kids to jump in and cool off!

Lake and yard access are from the lower level of the house. There is a short flight of stairs down to the gradually sloping sandy beach which is ideal for children.

We experience beautiful sun all day long and have wonderful sunsets at night. We are situated in a sheltered little cove only minutes from central Penticton with only 4 other neighbours.

Please visit our Facebook page, Lago Vista.

This three level vacation home can sleep eight people very comfortably. We allow a maximum of six adults (older than 18) or four adults and up to four children (younger than 18). We can make some exceptions for the appropriate type of groups. It is great spot for up to four couples or two small families. The home could accommodate more, but we do not generally allow groups larger than eight. We are not interested in renting to large groups of SINGLES or groups under the age of 25-30.

To all potential clients - we only do SATURDAY TO SATURDAY RENTALS for JULY and AUGUST - sorry no exceptions. ***CHALLENGE PENTICTON GROUPS-WE MAY HAVE SOME FLEXIBILITY AT SUMMERS END FOR CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT DAYS AS THE RACE FALLS ON A SUNDAY*****. We may consider shorter term rentals from SEPTEMBER ONWARDS. Please check our rates page for Summer 2016 prices and availability. We will also consider a short term winter rental from October to May. Please check with us for 2016.

We are within 20 minutes of over 40 wineries in Naramata, Oliver, Okanagan Falls & Summerland. Our home is just a few minutes from Skaha Lake Marina and central Penticton.

We are centrally located to all the top South Okanagan wineries such as Blasted Church, Painted Rock, Pentage, Noble Ridge, Blue Mountain, Liquidity, Dirty Laundry, Desert Hills, Burrowing Owl, LaFrenz, Hillside Estates, Poplar Grove, See Ya Later, Lakebreeze, Kettle Valley, etc.

Golf courses abound throughout the Okanagan valley. Cycling the Kettle Valley Railway is a memorable experience. The Skaha Lake Bluffs is a challenging climbing experience for many. Tubing, kayaking, water skiing, seadooing are all part of the fabric of life on Skaha Lake. Floating down the River Channel between Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake is always a lot of fun. Don't forget to enjoy many fine restaurants in Penticton along with the many outdoor festivities like the Peach Festival, and Challenge Penticton. If you are feeling lucky the Lakeside Casino is a short 10 minute drive.

The South Thompson Okanagan climate makes Penticton an ideal golf venue. Long dry summers and short winters with very little snow keep players on the links.

Penticton is home to the only Okanagan golf course that stays open year round, while another local club lists available tee times from early February through mid-December.

Play any one of a dozen courses within 60km/37mi of Penticton, four of them right in the city. The Penticton courses are generally laid out with easy walking in mind, but they still deliver some terrific mountain and lake views and designs to challenge every handicap.

Championship Play
The Penticton Golf Club opened the first 18-hole course in the Interior of BC. Since then it has shifted location and developed the course for championship play. The current location, adjacent to the Okanagan River Channel in the heart of the city, is flat - definitely a bonus for players used to the significant elevation changes of many Okanagan courses. But that's the only concession to easy play.

Driving range hours depend on conditions. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and light dining. Pro shop and rentals are available.

Nine-Hole Executive Courses
Penticton is home to three 9-hole executive courses that provide three very different golf experiences.

Sage Mesa Golf Club
Sage Mesa Golf Club is a 2152-yard course, but alternate tee choices on each hole give players on this Arizona-style desert layout the feel of an 18-hole round. While advanced golfers tee up to drive from a cliff to the green far below and tackle a cross-canyon shot to the fairway, average players can skip the heroics and line up for safe shots. Loss of concentration is one of the biggest hazards on this par 33 course with wide open views of Okanagan Lake and the surrounding mountains. Amenities include the driving range and a snack stop.

Pine Hills Golf and Country Club
Pine Hills Golf and Country Club is another course with a view. Here the 9-hole layout overlooks both Okanagan and Skaha Lakes with the Okanagan Highlands for a backdrop. It can be tough to keep your eye on the ball! The 2127-yard course demands precision drives on narrow fairways and skill with the putter on undulating greens for a par 28.

Skaha Meadows Golf Course
Skaha Meadows Golf Course is designed for easy walking, but flat doesn't mean a stroll in the park. This 2435-yard course throws out plenty of obstacles with water hazards to intimidate and trees to boomerang shots that don't hold straight. Par 35 is just a dream for most golfers. Carts and rentals available in the pro shop.

For more information on where to play golf in and around Penticton, stop by the Visitor Centre, on the corner of Elkhardt Avenue and Highway 97.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Welcome to our slice of paradise, Lago Vista! We have been coming to Penticton since we were children and have always dreamt of owning a home on sunny and warm Skaha Lake and retiring here. We have two adult children who love the sunshine and watersports that the Okanagan has to offer. Waking up in the mornings to the stunning view and being surrounded by orchards & wineries is utopia for us! We hope you enjoy and love our home as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Penticton:
The unparalleled beauty of the Okanagan with its perfect desert climate and the close proximity to Vancouver is the main reason why we bought our home here. Living on the lake and being surrounded by some of the best wineries in the world is wonderful! The watersports, cycling, hiking, and wonderful small town atmosphere of Penticton make our home special. Peach Festival is a memorable experience year after year with festivities that include fireworks, outdoor music festivals, carnival, and the iconic parade down Lakeshore Drive. We also love the fact that our home is in a little cove within minutes of Skaha Lake Marina and central Penticton so we have easy access to as little or as much action as we desire!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As soon as you enter our home you feel like you are on the lake. We have amazing mountain views from all 3 levels and so many choices for enjoying lake life from a romantic drink on the upper balcony to lounging beachside. We experience beautiful sun all day long and have wonderful sunsets at night. We are blessed with warm clear LAKEFRONT, perfect for wading or swimming off the end of the dock.
