Recent Thompson Okanagan reviews

  • Excellent First VRBO Experience!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the penthouse suite (on the 20th floor) during a recent short family getaway to Kelowna. The spacious three-bedroom unit comfortably accommodated 9 of us (6 adults and 3 children) -- every bedroom has its own bathroom, which is a great bonus, especially when travelling with a large group. The view of the lake from the main balcony is the epitome of Kelowna's beauty -- we certainly enjoyed a couple nights on the balcony sipping on wine from local wineries while admiring the breathtaking view. We did make good use of both the indoor and outdoor pools during our short stay. As the Sunset Waterfront is in downtown, it is only a short drive to the internationally-known Mission Hill Family Estate and other family wineries along the wine trail as well as cherry orchards on Teasdale Road. Restaurants, beach, playground and water park are within walking distance of the Sunset Waterfront. Both the kids and adults enjoyed the evening strolls along the beach. Even though our visit to Kelowna was brief, we soaked in the simple life of what Kelowna has to offer as we don't do this often at home due to our hectic lives. Since we are discerning travellers, we have typically booked all of our travel accommodations with reputable hotel chains and resorts. We had always been skeptical with booking accommodations through VRBO, Airbnb and the like due to scandals reported by the media or experienced by folks not doing the proper research (i.e. travellers showing up to a ramshackle place or the home owner did not exist). This was our first VRBO experience and we must admit that with some skepticism in the beginning, the ending turned out to be quite pleasant and amicable between us and Mike, the owner. Mike greeted us at the unit, showed us around the unit and toured the building with us. He even made sure that we had all means necessary to contact him during our stay should any issue come up -- we certainly appreciated his cordial approach. We would definitely come back and recommend this place to our friends and family. Cathy"

  • A great spot for young families

    "We have stayed here for one week over the past two summers and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The cottage is beautiful, with great swimming off the dock and wonderful views. There is a small sandy patch on the beach, and with the shovels and pails provided, our toddler spent many hours by the water, and our other children built some fantastic sand castles. Inside, we had everything we needed - coffee filters, tea, spices, bandaids, books, movies and board games. There are kayak rentals nearby and my husband took the kids over to check out Copper Island. Lorie and Richard are absolutely fabulous and were so welcoming and helpful with their advice, as well as awesome with the kids. We will miss this place next year when we are in Toronto."

  • A wonderful place!

    "Recently returned from a week long stay in this condo with our 5 kids. Ample space for us all and enough privacy for the parents. The place was well equipped and we were able to cook our large meals without needing any additional kitchen tools. The pool was great, and the location of this unit within the complex ensures privacy. Perhaps most importantly, V and C were fabulous hosts and were very accommodating. I have no hesitation giving a full recommendation to families from all walks of life."

  • Family Vacation

    "Our family just spent an amazing two weeks at Durali Villa. There were seventeen of us 8 adults and 9 children (ages 6 -15) of course the theatre, swimming pool were a big attraction for kids, and adults alike, but there was a lot to do and explore around Vernon - jogging, walking, biking, shopping, exploring beautiful Kalamalka Lake, The service was great and cannot say enough good things about the staff. The villa was a perfect fit for our family. Would certainly recommend Durali Villa for a family vacation."
