2 level 5 bedroom home, 2 up 3 down. 2 full baths, one on each level. Large living room downstairs. There are large decks off the front of the house, with a large porch to enjoy meals outside. There are 3 bedrooms with queen beds, a bedroom with 4 bunks--great for the kids, and a bedroom with 2 twins. the lower level is a walk out basement directly to the hot tub. The beach is down about 50 feet from the house and is very private. There is a sand bar about 75 yards off the beach. The depth at the sand bar is usually about waist deep, so boats do not come in too close and it is safe for swimming. Between the beach and sand bar the depth is about 15 feet maximum. Bring your boats, canoe, kayaks or other water craft and enjoy the water. There is no dock, but a boat mooring is available.
This is an older home, built during the 70's. The air-containing is for the upper level, as the basement level stays cool most of the summer. All the basement bedrooms have windows that open for "extra" ventilation. Please, keep windows and doors closed, with blinds drawn, during the heat of the day to keep the house cool. Taking a dip in the lake before bed is an excellent way to cool down.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Located on the east side of skaha lake, our family friendly home is a pearl. It is set close to the lake and about 1 k from the main road. It is a rural residential area. There are only 8 homes on our street and only 4 of those are on the water. The days are long and lazy with great times on the beach with family and friends. Some world class wineries are located with minutes drive just north of our home or south towards Oliver. Take your own tour, in your own time. Skaha bluffs is an international rock climbing site and is only 10 minutes drive north. Penticton is 11 km north on eastside road. There are numerous restaurants and festivals througout the summer and an weekly farmers' market. Okanagan falls is a small town about 4 km south. It has a small water park for the kids, a walking path/biking path on the old kvr railroad line ( part of the trans canada trail), grocery stores, and family beaches.
In Penticton, take a tube down the river channel, visit the museum, or take in some movies on the beach during parts of the summer.
A 45 minute drive will take you to Apex Alpine resort where mountain biking, hiking and outdoor adventure abound.
There are numerous hiking trails withing a short drive. Imagine taking a hike to the top of Apex mountain. Enjoying the alpine views at lunch. Or a day of rock climbing, then coming back to Skaha Lake, take a cool dip in the lake, enjoy a great bar b que and watch the stars come out at night. Sit in the hot tub with family and friends and plan the next day's activity
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: Lived in the Okanagan for 20 years. Kept the house when we relocated to the Lower Mainland, but spend as much time as we can at the lake. We raised our family here and would like to share our home with other families and help them create fun family memories.
Why the Owner Chose Okanagan Falls, Okanagan-Similkameen D, BC, Canada:
We fell in love with the house and the beach the moment we saw it. We weren't looking for lakefront, but we just couldn't pass it up. We bought this house in 1992 and will probably pass it on to our kids.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is set up and away from the water. You can see some of the beach from the house, but when you are at the beach, you are at the beach. Up in the house, enjoy wonderful views from the decks. There is a large screened/glassed porch on the lake side of the house. Off to the side is a large deck without screening adjoining the porch, which is fabulous for star gazing, or just enjoying the quiet. On the north side is a smaller deck for bar-b-ques and stair access to the yard and hot tub. It is just a great place to be. There are many living spaces-- 2 large living room, one on each level. The outside porches/decks, and the beach. There is also a small play area for the littler ones. Please supervise the little ones at the play area.
