New linens, TV's and window coverings
All the great natural surroundings still remain

Fully appointed suite with a view, nestled high above Skaha Lake in beautiful Heritage Hills. Only a scenic 15 minute drive, along the lake, south of Penticton.
This one bedroom suite is perfect for a couple, but also has a double fold-out bed in the sitting area that would accommodate one or two smaller children, if they do not mind sleeping together. There is also room for a playpen (which we supply) for infants or toddlers to sleep in the bedroom with Mom and Dad. (a highchair is also available) Fully-equipped kitchen, full-size bath (Tub/Shower combo) and laundry facilities are also available in the suite. The private view deck, right outside your door, has an umbrella table and chairs and is perfect for morning coffee, happy hour drinks, and barbeques.

Surrounded by Nature and Wildlife, (there is a good chance you will see Mule Deer or Big Horn sheep in the yard), this suite has everything you will need for a relaxing and a carefree holiday.

Whether you want an active sporting vacation or a quiet retreat, this is for you. All the activities, the Okanagan has to offer, are at your doorstep. Play one of the many award-winning golf courses, bike, or hike the historic Kettle Valley Railway Trail, partake in any of the many water-sports offered by Okanagan and Skaha Lakes, the list is endless. Also, let us not forget the 'Challenge Triathlon' for you really avid sports enthusiasts. The world renowned 'Penticton Hockey School' runs all summer, as well.

However, if you prefer a quieter escape, this area has just as much to offer. A relaxing float down the Channel, beautiful beaches, and winery touring, (the closest winery is only a stone's throw away [Blasted Church]) and the sun is almost always shining. These are only some of the endless summer activities.

The rest of the year also offers many unique things to do. Apex and Baldy areas are within an easy drive which boast amazing downhill, cross country and snow shoe trails as well as outdoor skating rinks. Fall, Spring and Summer offer the Okanagan Wine Festivals and these are only a few of the areas popular events. What more could you want?

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am retired and my wife, Wendy, works in a local retail shop in Penticton. We moved to the area after my retirement, because we had always found ourselves bringing the kids to the area for sporting events or just coming on family vacations. Why not retire to a place you always enjoyed as your own favorite vacation spot. We both grew up in Eastern Canada, and lived most of our adult lives in the Vancouver Area. We have seen Canada from one end to the other, numerous times, and could have settled anywhere after retirement. We chose the Okanagan. Great summer weather and mild town of golf of summer and winter than 200 of them! Penticton is one of British Columbia's premier vacation spots, but not everyone wants to stay in a hotel/motel and eat in a restaurant every meal. Our home is in a beautiful location and we thought that we would like to share that beauty with visitors who were into a more laid back holiday; in a more natural setting. We love it here in the summer and think of our home as our own private vacation spot. What better way to enhance other people's holidays than to share our shangrala.
