About Sandy

Sandy and Eric are semi retired and enjoy the relaxed Shuswap lifestyle. We enjoy sharing our home with others and getting to meet new guests and making new friends.

Why Sandy chose Magna Bay

We started coming to the Shuswap in 1983 as campers, and we loved the beauty of the area and the lake so much that we decided to buy our property and build our retirement home.

What makes this condo unique

We are a short walk to the beach so we can enjoy the lake anytime.

Quiet, cosy, private

  • 5 of 5

Eric and Sandy were here to greet us and get us setup. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and the fact all we needed to enjoy ourselves was here ready for us. The walk to the beach was less than five minutes, so that was great. Again the quiet and peaceful surroundings made our stay very enjoyable and relaxing.

Thanks again!

It was alright

  • 1 of 5

Booked this place because of the great reviews and frankly we were disappointed. We were two older couples with one adult daughter. The bedrooms are very small, no closets and not enough room to even keep your suitcase in. Suitcases had to go in the living room. The air conditioning is not central and you need to keep the kitchen cupboard doors open when using (not great when you have tall people), also, you cannot sit on the deck when the air conditioner is running as it is situated on the wall there and is very noisy and it drips. We had to keep the bedroom windows open at night as you do not have air conditioning in the bedrooms and anyone staying in the bedroom that is facing the back yard will be awakened at 5:45AM when the extremely noisy waterfall/pond kicks in. The sun shines in that window in the morning and the blinds are bent so the sun hits you right in face when you are laying there. Doesn't matter because you are up anyways due to the noise of the waterfall/pond.The advertisement says it sleeps seven, which it would in a pinch, but there is only the one bathroom. It gets pretty busy. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and dishes, but there are no empty cupboards to store your food, They have a TV but it is very old and the focus is not very good. Hopefully you will have good weather and will not need to watch the TV. We had several family members staying at different locations in the area as we were all down for a wedding. We would definitely choose a different location in the future.

Owner's Response: This is the only time EVER that someone has not been happy with our suite. I think because we kept some of their damage deposit ( this was also the one and only time we have had to charge someone due to the damage and the mess left) we have had as many as 8 guests and they said there was plenty of room, so I think this is just an unhappy person who no one could please! They did not mention any of this to us while they were here! We would not rent to them again.

Shuswap Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot. Very quiet and close to the beach. Accommodations were great, very clean and easily fit our family of six adults and two children. Loved the large private deck and barbecue. Sandy and Eric were extremely friendly and always there to help. Would definitely go back. Highly recommend.

A beautiful getaway in the Shuswap

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time staying in the Shuswap and I couldn't have been more pleased with our rental. Sandy and Eric provide everything you need (and more!) in this 2 bedroom above-ground suite. The 2 bedrooms have queen-sized beds and there is a bunk bed in the main living area. The back patio was a perfect spot to use in the morning to enjoy my coffee and sunshine. Everything was impeccably clean and the pool table came in very handy as it rained the majority of the time we were there.

The public beach access is a quick 5 minute walk away from the house and there is also the Ross Creek park down from the beach access. Ross Creek is also walkable, but we ended up driving there to transport our paddleboards. Be sure to bring bug repellent as the mosquitoes are relentless.

Thank you to Sandy and Eric for everything. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay!
