Enjoy a luxury 2 bedroom condo on Skaha Lake in the sunny South Okanagan. You will be minutes away from popular Penticton with all its attractions, yet in a much quieter area with the small town ambience and charm of Okanagan Falls.
Located on the south end of Skaha Lake, you will be enjoying one of the mildest climates in Canada, with warm, dry weather and very high annual hours of sunshine. Skaha Lake is one of Canada's warmest lakes, and has sandy beaches for excellent swimming, boating, and waterskiing.
The beach on the south end of Skaha Lake is just steps away. It has just been revitalized with a wonderful children's play structure and waterpark. As well as the great sandy beach and lake, there are large grassy areas with huge willow trees providing shade. Many other beaches are also in close proximity. The tourist information office across the street will give much additional information.
The amenities in the area are endless. There is a picturesque lagoon behind the condo, with paved paths and shady willow trees. Children love fishing in the lagoon - it's catch and release with a single non-barbed hook, and the best bait ever - bread dough! (Out of province kids will need a fishing license).
The property backs on to the Kettle Valley Railway Trail, which follows the western shoreline of Skaha Lake.
Every summer Penticton hosts the famous Okanagan Hockey School, and the Challenge Penticton Triathalon.
Spectacular golf courses, with the longest golf season in the Interior of BC, incredible Okanagan orchards, over 30 commercial estate and farm wineries to savour, and of course, the numerous lakes and beaches that the Okanagan is so famous for, all contribute to an unforgettable vacation experience.
When you are ready to wind down after a hard day's work of doing nothing, come home to your oak kitchen with side by side fridge, ceramic cooktop in the island, dishwasher, and every appliance you need. Every detail has been meticulously thought of. This air-conditioned unit has a comfortable queen sized bed in the master bedroom, a cozy double bed in the 2nd, and a queen sofabed in the living room. Both bedrooms have large walk-in closets. The bathroom has a floor-to-ceiling oak cabinet for storage, a shower, and a deep, comfortable tub for soaking. A generous sized laundry room with washer and dryer, ironing board and iron also offers additional storage.
If you have time to squeeze in one more decadent experience, head down 5 blocks to the world-famous Tickleberry's Ice Cream Parlour and Gift Shop, where you can savour the last rays of sunshine as you indulge.
We have 2 identical condos, which are side by side. They are listed separately, so the calendars can be individualised.

About Linda Rathjen
We are an early 60's couple, not quite retired yet, married for 40 years. Tom grew up all around BC, Linda grew up in the Edmonton/Barrhead area of Alberta. We love BC! I remember vacationing here when I was a kid, and never imagined I would live here!
Linda Rathjen purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Linda Rathjen chose Okanagan Falls
We love to go to our condo with our kids and 2 grandkids - the area is amazing for families. Usually we come home to Langley with a carload of delectable fruit. But we also enjoy being there just by ourselves - so relaxing. My brother owns the condo next door, so sometimes we have family gatherings there. So fun!
What makes this Condo unique
We love staying at our condo - we just have to drive up, and everything we could possibly need is already there. The 3 minute walk to the beach is so enticing - even if you just want to go for an hour, it's so close. And the Kettle Valley Railway Trail on the other side of the building goes all the way into Penticton. There is so much to do - hiking, biking, sitting at the beach catching up on reading, or driving around exploring the back roads. Our clients say they also love all the wineries and golf courses. I don't think we will ever get bored of things to do!

We were with family and there were small kids. They loved the nearby park and the beach at the lake. The condo was great for four people and is very well kept.
Okanagen Falls Condo
Our condo was exactly as described. Wonderful location and close to everything. The beach is a short walk from the condo and has many amenities for our son. It was unfortunate that there were may forest fires nearby so we had to deal with smoke in the air most days. Even with that we had a most enjoyable time and would recommend your condo.
Thanks so much, Kevin.
Too bad about the fires, but glad you still had a good time.
Hope to see you again.
Perfect location for young family!
We had a wonderful stay here with our two young boys (under 5) in July. Location couldn't be beat - 2 mins to the lake with beach, playground and water park. The lake was warm and shallow, and beach was always fairly quiet with just other families with young kids. IGA is right across from the condo which was super convenient for groceries. The unit is very clean, spacious, and was equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Also enjoyed biking along the kettle valley trail which is just steps away. Wonderful location, easy to get around to other areas like Penticton or Osoyoos for day trips. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!
Glad you had a good time! We try to live by the Golden Rule - treat our clients to a condo where we would want to stay.
Hope to see you again.
Home away from home
Beautiful and very well stocked Condo. Everything you need for a fun beach day is available and the beach is just a few steps away! Nice clear, shallow water perfect for kids. Close to splash park and playground our 2 year old had a great time. Condo was very clean and well kept. Thank you, we look forward to coming again :)
Glad you enjoyed it!
And thanks to clients like you who have kept the condo in such great condition!
We really enjoyed our stay in your condo! It was like a home away from home, you thought of everything. The condo was clean, and well stocked, the beds were comfortable and the location was perfect. We would definitely recommend and will definitely come back:)
Thank you for your kind words.
We do our best to keep the condo in the condition that we would like to stay in. Hope to see you again!
Perfect family vacation rental!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it for anyone with small children. It was quiet and perfect for kids with the beach, water park and playground just across the street. The condo has a very well stocked kitchen and lots of bedding/ towels etc which makes it feel just like home!
We definitely look forward to enjoying this location again on a future vacation!
