About Joan and Phil Rathjen

My husband and I live in the area and love the location of the condo. We are semi-retired, my husband as a school administrator and myself as a school psychologist/counsellor. Our boys grew up on the lake and we feel privileged to have had the opportunity to call this area home.

Joan and Phil Rathjen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Joan and Phil Rathjen chose Thompson Okanagan

It is in a great location. There are all forms of water sports and a bike/walk path along the river beside the complex and two wonderful beaches nearby. Wineries and golf courses are a short drive away. The lake warms up beautifully in the summer and at this end of the lake, calm waters await the skiier and wake boarder. thjere is also very good bass and trout fishing in the south end of the lake.

What makes this condo unique

Easy to access the water on foot or by boat. Boat launching and boat moorage close by. Grocery store next door (IGA). Lots of parking. Great scenery and short drives to all the attractions and recreational opportunities of the south Okanagan. Bike/walk path to Penticton starts beside the condo.

What a great place! Phil and Joan were very easy to communicate with. The propert was very nice and clean. Had everything we needed. Super close to the beach which was not packed with people. Close to Penticton and Osoyoos to enjoy the attractions but far enough from all the tourists. Would definitely go back. Thanks Joan and Phil.

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was close to a children's park, a family beach, a grocery store, a liquor mart and wineries. Very convenient for family with small children, and for those who want to stay out of the city but in close proximity.

It was equipped with anything you need for a comfortable stay. From a full kitchen to a bbq on a small balcony (great for a morning coffee zen), laundry facilities, extra sheets and a pull out couch (although that was not very comfortable, we just placed the mattress on the rug, and that was fine for us).

Joan is a pleasure to correspond with. We would stay at her condo unit again.

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and dog and I traveled to penticton and spent a few nights in OK falls at Joan's place. Everything was perfect! The kitchen has everything you need we bbq'd every night for dinner. There is a little beach area not far from the condo with an area for your dog's to swim and play. Joan was great to deal with and got back to me right away. The wineries in the area are amazing! I would definitely recommend this place!

Nothing like getting in a kitchen that has it all. Whatever you may need is here. The owners care about your experience. Thank you!

Well equipped and very clean

  • 4 of 5

I would rate this condo as excellent except that I don't think the location was what I had hoped for. I didn't do enough research before booking. No restaurants other than casual fast food within walking distance. Not misrepresented but OK Falls was more of a drive to Penticton than I expected. The photos are exactly what unit looks like. Joan was great to deal with and responded quickly when I had questions. Can't say anything but good things about unit itself. Very close to beach and wineries.
