Penticton Vacation Rentals

 
 


Why Choose Penticton Vacation Rentals?

The city of Penticton is located in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and is nestled between Okanagan Lake to the north and Skaha Lake to the south.  This makes it an ideal location to stay in a Penticton vacation home.

The name Penticton, as translated by the Salish native Americans, means "A Place to Stay Forever", so named because the lakes, hills and surrounding area provided all that was needed for life in the early days. 

Definitely a four seasons playground, Penticton boasts 2,000 hours of sunshine per year and its beaches and warm lakes make it a favourite destination for summer tourists to British Columbia.  This is another reason that Penticton vacation rentals are so popular, especially for families, or friends wanting a beach vacation in the summer.

Summer events include Penticton Square Dance Festival, Penticton Highland Games, Okanagan Children's Festival, Beach Blanket Film Festival and the Pentastic Jazz Festival to name but a few. 

Penticton is well known for hosting the Penticton Challenge Triathlon at the end of August each year.  Penticton vacation accommodations are very inviting to triathletes, because renting a home or condo with a kitchen gives them the freedom to prepare special meals for their diet before the race. Also rentals from owners for accommodations during Ironman are usually more quiet, and restful than the average hotel.   

The Fall is a time for many festivals in Penticton, including the Okanagan Fest-of Ale and various wine festivals.

Rentals at Apex Mountain ski resort include ski condos and ski cabins.  The resort attracts both summer and winter visitors who like to participate in the winter sports of skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing and skating, or summer hiking on the many trails.  New Summer of 06 there is also a mountain bike park accessible by a chair lift for all types of mountain biking as well as hiking.

The Okanagan Valley is fast becoming the Napa Valley of the north as more and more vineyards and wineries are springing up, so Penticton vacation rentals are very attractive to those interested in touring the these wineries.  Many of these wineries also have restaurants for people to enjoy wonderful food and wine with spectacular views of the valley and lakes.  Most wineries invite visitors for wine tastings and tours and the South Okanagan wine tour begins in Penticton. 

In summary Penticton vacation rentals include family vacation homes, summer beach homes, Okanagan waterfront  rentals, Apex ski condos and ski cabins, as well as lakefront cottages, and many bed and breakfast inns in the surrounding areas.
