House, winter upstairs - 2 Bedrooms up, 2 Baths, up (Sleeps 4), or rent whole
Other than the summer, we are offering the upstairs only (sleeps 4) for the posted rates or ask us about renting the whole house (sleeps 9) (for the winter season) Better than a cottage stay, as it has all the conveniences, and also a very quiet country like setting, overlooking a farm valley to Okanagan Lake and 35 km to Terrace Mtn beyond. There are houses only on one side if the street and a cul-de-sac at the end, so there is little traffic to content with. There are walking trails and a park handy to relax nearby.
As it is located in a quiet neighborhood, we expect that sentiment to be respected by our guests. This is NOT a party house! The neighbors are quiet retired professionals. The deck has a great view, and folks enjoy that, but we ask that after 10PM the noise level on the deck be contained out of respect for our neighbors, and to comply with City Bylaws.
You're in the city, with everything handy, but it feels like the country. Clients have loved this concept.

About Dave Weatherill
Joanne & Dave love to travel too, and appreciate welcoming accomodations, so we have kept that in mind as we have developed our own executive vacation rental home. We started from scratch in 1984, own and operate Briteland Holdings Ltd.. We are very involved in our community, especially in Rotary. We love sports and like to take advantage of all that our area has to offer. Vernon is a year round sports paradise, with world class facilities really handy.
Dave Weatherill purchased this House in 2008
Why Dave Weatherill chose Vernon
We like to build things, businesses, lives and homes. We are keen about our environment and ecology, and have incorporated many energy efficient features into our Jemma Homes. Turtle Mountain is a unique and new development in Vernon. It is a classy area of town, and really handy to all the amenities, including sports, shopping, entertainment and dining.
What makes this House unique
The open concept, on both floors, allows for great family and guest visiting time.

Dave was an awesome host! Joanne kept in contact well. the house itself was nicer than the pictures. All the necessary kitchen utensils/tools/gadgets/appliances were provided! Can not complain at all
Our stay at David and Joanne's rental was absolutely perfect - the rental property is very spacious and has the best view! If we are ever back in Vernon we will be requesting to stay here again - David and Joanne were great hosts as well!
Very nice place.
Lots of room in house to accommodate. Open floor plan and basement allowed for awsome Nerf Wars with kids. House was very comfortable. We felt completetly at home. Awsome view from balcony as well.
Sorry if owners are finding Nerf Darts throughout the house. We tryd to find them all. LOL
We did find 1 Nerf dart! LOL
A very nice family and we hope to host them again!
We appreciate folks who love the property as much as we do. respect the neighbors and leave the house in a clean condition.
Excellent weekend in an amazing place!
From the outset this place was jaw dropping, amazing views combined with a fully functional exceptional home located on Turtle Mtn. The proprietors was extremely professional, always available and very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this property. My group had the best time we could have hoped for! Would definitely come back again!
Thanks for staying with us. It is a pleasure to see a group of guys, enjoying each others company, while respecting the property, and the neighborhood. You are definitely welcome to stay with us again!
This was a wonderful house for our family travelling in from New Zealand and Toronto for a wedding in Vernon. Communication with the owners was quick and easy. The house was exactly what we required, the views were great, and the accommodation extremely comfortable. We were very happy living and entertaining in this house, everything was modern and well appointed. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend anyone renting this property. The whole area was easily accessible to town and the wedding venue. We wish we could have stayed longer. We loved watching the deer from the balcony, and enjoyed the climb up Turtle Mountain. Thanks very much for making our stay so memorable.
Great House & Location
We spent 4 nights at the house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our party of 6 comfortably spread ourselves out and there was actually a spare bedroom unoccupied. The house had enough beds and sofas to probably sleep 8-10 people depending on how many couples, children and singles there are. The house was well designed and had modern, quality appliances and electronics including a home entertainment system (iPod friendly) & big screen TV & gas BBQ. There were plenty of pots & pans, cooking utensils, dishes and appliances.The only appliance lacking was a coffee grinder which we picked up at the local Wal Mart. Everything in Vernon is closeby so the location of the house in a new sub division (Turtle Mountain) 5-10 minutes from downtown Vernon was fine. We had a beautiful view from the wrap around balcony and the place was quiet. I thoroughly recommend the home for family gatherings or a large group of people wanting to enjoy Vernon & the surroundings.
