About the Property

Large, Private Self Contained One (*or 2*) Bedroom Suite Located On Vineyard

THE LOCATION:

A cozy little hideaway nestled in with the vineyards and orchards of the Naramata Bench overlooking Lake Okanagan. Our seven acre vineyard is located on the peaceful, sunny side of Lake Okanagan in the heart of wine country. We are a short walk to five wineries and, with the Kettle Valley Trail literally at your doorstep, a short bike ride to several additional wineries as well as the city of Penticton. We are a 5 minute drive to the beach at 3 mile road which is a nice swimming beach. Whether you visit us for the spring blossoms, the warm summer days, the Peach Festival, Wine-Fest or Autumn Harvest you are sure to fall in love with our magical little corner of the world! "Travel + Leisure" named the Okanagan wine area among its best places to travel in 2016. Its recently been named the number one wine region in the world by the "Huffington Post". "Wine Enthusiast Magazine" listed it as one of the 10 best wine travel destinations and "USA Today" ranked it the second best wine region to visit. The Naramata Bench, where Gjoa's Vineyard is located is bursting with over the top natural beauty, has some of the best views in North America.

* Canadians Please Note; for some unexplainable reason VRBO now quotes all its prices in US dollars. Even for Canadian travellers searching Canadian destinations. If you go to "Rates" you will find a well hidden drop down window you can use to change to Canadian dollars. Sorry for any confusion but it is beyond our control.

THE GUEST SUITE:

A wonderful 900 sq. ft. one bedroom fully contained suite with a private patio overlooking Gjoa's Vineyard, Lake Okanagan and the mountains beyond. All you need to bring is your bike, your clubs, a beach blanket and your favorite book.

Located near Penticton in the Southern Okanagan, the wineries are situated above sweeping sand cliffs that rise from Okanagan Lake, with vineyards that gently slope up to the mountains behind, it is “The Naramata Bench.”

Meandering country roads and spectacular views with 29 wineries, wine festivals, local farmers market, the town of Naramata (a gorgeous hamlet on the water nearby) beaches, golfing, and outdoor activities abound.

Huffington Post recently named Penticton a top 10 international destination with the local wine industry cited as an important factor in choosing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: John and Gjoa are professionals who split their time between Naramata and Calgary. We have travelled the globe extensively and believe our vineyard and the Naramata Bench is a very special place. We decided to share our home so others can enjoy our vineyard as much as we do. We think its working out very well since over 1/2 of our clients are now return customers. The only sad part for us is not being able to meet all the great people that have stayed at our place in person ... someday this will be different when we can make this magical location our full time home.

Why the Owner Chose Penticton, BC, Canada:
We fell in love with the area and the vineyard on our first visit to the area. The fabulous weather, warm evenings, local organic produce, friendly locals and fabulous wine are some of the best things Canada has to offer. The geography of the area is stunning with the bluffs along the Naramata Bench. I believe Naramata Road is one of the most beautiful drives in Canada. We love the laid back pace of the area, life truly slows down in this gorgeous part of the world...and the wine is getting better every year.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We have renovated the suite over the period we have owned the property to make it more comfortable and enjoyable to our guests. We have tried to think of everything that would make a great stay. Enjoy a wander through the vineyard at dusk to the pergola with a glass of wine in hand. Walk or bike along the KVR trail to visit several wineries that have fabulous wine and great food. ** We have recently added a new guest room available to rent for $150/night. It is pretty gorgeous.
