About Pam Vinoly

We moved to the Okanagan in 1990 to enjoy four seasons of recreation. Now that our children have grown we are travelling more and use VRBO as our primary source of accomodations. We have stayed in a variety of properties, in many different places and much prefer the experience above hotels or resorts.

Pam Vinoly purchased this house in 1990

Why Pam Vinoly chose Thompson Okanagan

Even after all these years we still love living in the Okanagan! Since our kids are grown & gone we had a lot of space we weren't using, so we decided to put a vacation suite in. We had rented our home out when we went travelling in 2011 and had such positive experiences (and reviews) that we wanted to offer our guests the same level of comfort to enjoy in the new suite. Therefore, we designed, furnished & finished the suite to provide that.

What makes this house unique

The Okanagan is a mecca of 4 seasons of fun and we are so thankful to live in a place that allows us to enjoy each one! From our doorstep we can walk to beautiful beaches, go swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. With Kalamalka Park in our backyard, we can walk, run, bike, hike or go climbing whenever we like. The nearest boat launch is a mere 2 minute drive away. If we want to stick close to home to golf it's a 5 minute drive, while world-class Predator Ridge is only 20 minutes away. When the snow falls we can be swooshing down Silver Star in under an hour, or go cross-country skiing right from our doorstep. As an avid snowbiker, my husband is always eager to guide riders (sleds or bikes) into first-class riding areas and as importantly, get them home safely again!

Gorgeous Home. Modern and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very modern, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The house and yard was exactly what the photos show it is. The bathroom and shower are nicer in person. We were very spoiled in this beautiful home.

We were looking for a quiet comfortable place to stay for a few days while in Vernon visiting family. This is great value as compared to a hotel. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Much More Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet place to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed! The suite is the lower level of a lovely home in a quiet neighbourhood. The yard and flower beds are immaculate. We were amused by the wild quail that came to roost each evening in the tall cedar hedge in the back yard. The suite is very clean and as described by other reviews with many thoughtful extras that really made it seem like we were at home. Very nicely decorated and even a basic selection of spices. The appliances are high end. My husband loved the large screen T.V. While we didn't need to use the washer and dryer, we were very impressed that they were included in the suite. What more could one ask for!! We certainly give this property and the owners the highest rating possible and highly recommend them.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children and I recently stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in Vernon. The unit was perfect and we would gladly come back. It is beautifully appointed, with very tasteful decorations, comfortable beds, and everything you need. The kitchen is very well stocked. There is no oven, but with a full stove top, toaster oven, microwave, and barbecue you hardly need one. There are more than enough linens and towels, and even beach towels. And the ability to do laundry in the unit was wonderful. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the big tv and the Wii games! We met Pam in the driveway one day and she was delightful. I have no doubt she and Brent would be extremely responsive to any needs had we had any. But otherwise we never saw them. We fully relaxed and enjoyed ourselves in this beautiful, very clean, very comfortable, quiet accommodation.

As a bonus, the house is located very close to Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park, with great hiking and lake access at a number of beautiful little beaches and bays. It's also only a few minutes away from the main beach at Kal Lake.

We look forward to coming back here on our next visit to Vernon.

Where do you live?

Almost better than home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at Pam and Brent's in August 2015. My husband and I were there for four days, then were joined by my daughter and her boyfriend for the rest of the week.

What wonderful accommodation. The entire suite is beautifully appointed. From our stand point, I can't imagine staying in a hotel room when we were able to spread out and enjoy clean, beautiful and quiet accommodation - inside and outside.

The kitchen is incredibly well equipped - I can't think of anything we might have needed that wasn't already there. While we didn't take advantage of all of the features of the entertainment system in the living room, others might really enjoy this - especially if travelling with family.

We loved sitting in the back yard in the morning, drinking coffee and reading. There is absolute privacy as the yard is surrounded by 20 foot cedars. If you want to be a bit active, there is badminton equipment. This not only includes a net and racquets, but Brent has marked the court lines on the grass.

They have also provided fold up chairs and sand toys for the beach. Pam and Brent have thought of absolutely every detail to make your visit comfortable and enjoyable.

As others have noted, the property is in a residential area in Coldstream. This suited us nicely, but may not be suitable for all travellers. Having said this, we didn't have to drive more than 5 to 10 minutes to get where we wanted to be in Vernon. (That's far less than I drive to go to work each day in my home town.)

We had the chance to chat with Pam and Brent a couple of times. They seem to be lovely and personable people. While we didn't have any problems with the accommodation, I'm confident that they would have been more than willing to resolve them for us.

If we plan another stay in Vernon, we would definitely want to return to Pam and Brent's.

Within walking distance to stunning Kalamalka Lake (named one of the top ten in the world by National Geographic) & Kalamalka Provincial Park (with its vista-filled trails ideal for hiking & biking). For climbers, Cougar Canyon has something for every climbing level and is an easy hike in. Okanagan Lake offers many choices for sandy beaches & boat launches and depending on your choice, can be found within a 10 minute drive. World renown Predator Ridge Golf Resort is a 20 minute drive, with Vernon Golf and Country Club only 5 minutes away. Numerous other courses are 15- 45 minutes by car. Sparkling Hills Wellness Resort is an easy 20 minute drive with wineries galore close by. For those who like to 'fly like a bird', we are 5 kms away from some favorite parasailing jumping off spots. If it's the 'white stuff' you like to play in, within 35- 40 minutes you can go from our doorstep to the parking lot of Silver Star Mountain. Big White is about about a 1.5 hour drive. We are in the middle of limitless snowmobiling & as an avid sledder, my husband can guide you to the 'top of the world' (and get you back home again safely)! For those that are coming to Vernon to work or learn- the Kal Tire Training Centre and head office are only 5kms up the road. Vernon Jubilee Hospital 6kms, Okanagan College 1.5kms and University of British Columbia Okanagan 40kms.
