About Chantel Van Buren

We are a family of 4, we live in Okotoks, AB and try to get out to Sicamous as often as we can, whether it is for skiing or snowmobiling in the winter or waterskiing, swimming and sun on the beach in the summer!!

Chantel Van Buren purchased this condo in 2011

Why Chantel Van Buren chose Sicamous

We love Mara Lake and Sicamous!! We wanted a BC Lake that was not crazy crowded every weekend. We love waterskiing and you can almost always find calm water. The water is so clean and warm and the weather can't be beat! We enjoy being able to walk to restaurants, bars and shopping as well as playgrounds and ice cream stores!

What makes this condo unique

Close to everything, but still right on the water so you can walk to the beach in seconds and don't have to keep taking your boat in and out of the water!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable in this unit. Very family friendly complex, just around the corner from boat rentals, and only minutes to grocery and liquor store (very important). Lots of room inside, well stocked kitchen, nice deck, BarBQ downstairs. Lots of room for kids and all the toys. Chantel was very good to deal with, very organized, and deposits sent back very quickly. Highly recommended.

We have been renting this particular unit on an annual basis for many years now. It's much like being at home. It is very comfortable, well equipped and keeps us coming back! Lots of activities nearby and the water was very warm this year. Shop keepers were friendly and welcoming.

Piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Sicamous is a lovely town nestled in the mountains. We have been there several times over the years for camping and houseboating but staying in White Pines was fantastic! The Van Burens were friendly and super easy to book with and the rental was a great value. The condo is very clean and has everything you need for a week long getaway. So much easier than camping and cheaper than staying in a hotel! Your boat is docked right there so you can go for a ski whenever you see the perfect opportunity. We drove to Skytrek Adventure Park in Revelstoke for zip lining and the Enchanted Forest. We have also gone in the winter for sledding/skidooing and it's a short drive to skiing in Vernon or Kelowna. The town has lots of cute shops and there are many places to eat out. We go back year after year and would recommend this property and any others associated with the Van Burens.
