  • Great Location, Beautiful Home but beach a little weedy. Absolutely Gorgeous Sunset Views!!!!

    "We stayed for 2 wks August 13-27, 2016. Overall, this was a very nice place to stay. The kitchen was stocked with every imaginable gadget and appliance (better than my own!) as was spacious and well-laid out, which made cooking enjoyable! Nice open layout had lots of space for 2 families. We appreciated having the washer and dryer on site (basement). Owner supplied things such as paper towel, toilet paper, towels which was nice (I had friends staying elsewhere on the lake that had to supply their own, which adds to the packing and expense!). We loved the grocery/gas/liquor store down the street; it was a great store, had everything you could need with good selection and reasonable prices. Best part was that it was 400m away, so didn't have to waste holiday time driving in to Salmon Arm!! The road was busy, but we didn't notice it much, only had to cross to take out the garbage, spent all our time in the back yard. There was ample parking for a few vehicles and boat trailer, and Tim was even kind enough to allow us to park a motorhome (for a very reasonable extra fee) for some friends who were able to come last minute!! Much appreciated!! Our only complaints were that the beach had a lot of milfoil and as a result ducks; likely because of proximity to Finz marina next door, as well as the fact that the lake was low this time of year. We have young kids and "142 ft of clean sandy beach front" was the main reason we chose the listing, so was disappointing as we envisioned kids playing in the water/jumping off the dock while we sat at the beach- we had to pack them up in the boat every time they wanted to swim. Tim was good to deal with, but I thought maybe a bit uncomfortable yet with the idea of renting his home as we was around ALOT, particularly after our friends arrived the 2nd week; watering plants, once we even saw him from the lake looking in the patio window. He lives on property directly across street, so if you want privacy may not be the ideal. I have rented VRBO several times before on winter holidays and never seen the owner after check-in. Ironically he wasn't there at all for checkin, we were simply told by his family who coincidentally happened to be walking by (and park their boat the shared dock as does Tim) to go in, with a text from the owner a few hours later, kind of strange. A printout with expectations and helpful tips (boat dock, store, garbage, using A/C etc) would be helpful if he can't be there to do a walk thru."

  • Great location & well hosted!

    "The apartment is clean & has all the essentials. I liked the convenience of many shops nearby, plus buses / Canada Line were all nearby too. Spent quite a bit of my evening watching TV (lots to choose from) since it gets dark by 5pm. It had certainly been a restful short break! Thank you Illana for dropping by everytime i mess up on the TV controls & helping me with my laundry!"

  • The perfect spot on OK Lake.

    "We took a chance on this place as it was a bit out of the way from Vernon on the west side of OK lake, but boy are we glad we did. This place was well above our expectations. As we had hoped, we spent most of our time on the water kayaking, paddle boarding, and especially swimming. There is a private dock with boat moorage and although we didn't have a powerboat we had family visit who did. The accommodations were very comfortable for the four of us and had everything we could need including a nice big sunny deck where we enjoyed our lazy breakfasts. The owner, Rick, lives on site however the rental suite is below his house, closer to the water, and we never saw him except for our first and last days there. There was lots of room for our kayaks and paddle boards in the boathouse and an nice bonus was the lakefront area where we set up our hammock and had campfires every night (hooked on smores now!). If you're unsure about this rental, don't be. It was great. We've already reserved our week for next year. Thanks Rick."
