About Joan and Phil Rathjen

Phil and Joan are retired school personnel. Phil was a teacher and school administrator. Joan was a teacher and school psychologist/counsellor. We both dabble a bit in those areas still. Our 3 grown sons all learned to do their best skiing/boarding at Apex with its varying and challenging runs. Now our grandchildren are able to come and have their first ski hill experiences!

Joan and Phil Rathjen purchased this Condo in 2001

Why Joan and Phil Rathjen chose Okanagan-Similkameen G

We stopped one day to do a viewing of this property when it had just been built and fell in love with the pine wood inside, the lay-out of the interior, and the location. It was so cozy, private, and such a location!

What makes this Condo unique

The ski-in, ski-out is the greatest asset. Just park your car and leave it there throughout. The hot tub feels wonderful for morning coffee or to warm up the body after a day of skiing. The fireplace sets the mood.

The place met our family’s needs with a nice open kitchen, laundry, bath, games. The hot tub was great for the old bones after a long day skiing. And the owners quickly responded to our questions.

                                                                    Cozy alpine retreat

It was such a treat to step out in the door and go sledding then take a warm soak in the private hot tub right on the deck. The condo has every convenience you could want from satellite and WiFi to a great selection of board games and a cozy gas fireplace.

                                                                    It was as a fabulous way to get in the holiday spirit. We will be back for sure!

For those considering a peaceful summer away from the hustle and bustle of the city this is the place to be. sure it is a 35 minute drive to Penticton, hour and half to Osoyoos or two hours to Kelowna, so what! You are on holiday time right.

We cooked a lot. It was very comfortable, and the hot tub was soooo great. It was pretty much on the ski hill. I just want to thank the owners again for allowing cooper to come. She had such a blast! I would say this was one of my favorite VRBO rental getaways from vancouver that I have had! It was so relaxing!

The view is out towards the ski hill and the Strayhorse Trail runs in front. After ski hours, the slope in front is excellent for children and adults alike, to slide and tobaggan.
