About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom rancher, 1/2 acre, quiet neighborhood, 5 mins to beach

On a 1/2 acre lot along a no-thru road, you'll find our house and yard to be very quiet and private. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 6 guests can stay very comfortably. Washer and dryer is yours to use as well. With 3 large porches you can enjoy breakfast in the sun or dinner with the setting sun. The yard is very large with room for a great game of soccer or Frisbee. Lots of trees provide shade to escape to in the hot sun. A basketball court with 2 hoops makes for great fun with the kids. Our garden, planted with many vegetables and herbs, is also yours to eat from.

About tristan mennell

We are both teachers who enjoy travelling with our 2 young boys. We are born and raised in the Okanagan and feel thrilled to share our Eden with others.

tristan mennell purchased this house in 2010

Why tristan mennell chose Thompson Okanagan

Our home is located on the Westbench where it is very peaceful and rural-like. Our property is large, neighbourhood quiet and it is a perfect spot for our family.

What makes this house unique

We are minutes to the Penticton channel and Okanagan beach. Our Spartan home is only a stones throw away from the KVR bike and walking path. Access to numerous world-class mountain bike paths is just 1/2 a kilometre away. There is space abound for kids to play and dogs to run.

Incredible house, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! It worked perfectly for our two families. Close enough to both lakes but far enough to feel quiet and peaceful. We loved the mountain view from the front porch and the beautiful garden in the backyard. We had some amazing produce from their impressive vegetable garden and their lovely neighbor brought over a huge bucket of cherries. We absolutely loved this cozy home.

Beautiful Home and Yard

  • 4 of 5

We had an 8 night stay at this beautiful home Aug 2016. We loved the front and back yard along with the decks and porches. The landscaping is gorgeous. This home is well maintained and access to Okanagan Lake was a 10min drive. Skaha lake was only about 15min drive. The home is located in the West Bench area so its on a hill with great views! You can see the PENTICTON signage from way across town from the front porch. There is plenty of shade and sun options throughout the day. Most importantly this is a pet friendly home and we were allowed to bring our 3 small dogs on our family vacation. The open concept in the kitchen and living room with the huge picture window showing the gorgeous view was a treat when we spent evenings inside playing games, eating and just chilling. There is air conditioning, however it wasn't needed as the house remains quite cool. There's a vegetable garden to pick from and friendly neighbours. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We spent 5 nights here and had a great time, amenities are plentiful and you really felt at home. The place was spotless when we arrived and the garden had a lot to choose from. Tristan was really easy to deal with and answered all our questions. Would for sure stay here again!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at this property. Tucked away from the town felt like we were off by ourselves, very quiet and peaceful but only minutes away from everything. The huge yard was a great space for the kids to be out running around. The house was very comfortable and well equipped.

Will surely consider for future stays in the area.
