Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $381.20
  • Pet Fee $57.18 + tax
  • Tax Rate 5%

Notes:

When booking, please carefully check the currency shown. Although you may assume the rate is shown in Canadian dollars, it is sometimes shown in US$. Somewhere in the middle of the rental information pages, there is a tiny icon showing a US flag, meaning the rates are defaulting to US$. Change this to Canadian dollars. I have submitted several requests to VRBO to change this, but to date, it hasn't changed. Sorry in advance for the confusion

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Born and raised in the Okanagan, I have an enduring love and knowledge of the local area and people. For 12 years I owned and operated a boutique lodge at Apex Mountain Resort, just 30 minutes from here. I found I really missed the lifestyle, so went on the search for the perfect house to renovate and provide fantastic and comfortable vacations to families visiting this beautiful area. I am an avid traveler, and have just returned from an inspirational journey through Africa. I hope that you will enjoy this beautiful home as much as I.

Why the Owner Chose Penticton, BC, Canada:
I knew this was the one, immediately after stepping in the door the first time. The windows letting in all the natural light, the views, the hardwood floors, the high ceilings, post and beam construction. Then I found out it also had an in-ground super private pool, all located in a nice quiet family neighbourhood. I was hooked, and I hope you will fall in love with this home as I have.
