Why Choose Okanagan Vacation Rentals?

If you are looking for Okanagan vacation rentals you most likely would like to read some information about this very popular summer tourist destination.
The Okanagan Valley, is located in the heart of British Columbia in the fertile Thompson-Okanagan region.  Cradled between the Cascade Mountains on the west and the Monashee Mountains on the east, the valley is roughly 200 km long and 20 km wide.  Its landscape of low hills and oblong lakes, was formed by glacial activity which left loose deposits of gravel, silt and sand on the bottom and sides of the valley. 

The Okanagan valley enjoys some of the warmest and driest weather in British Columbia, and also has some of the best year round recreational opportunities on the continent, which is why Okanagan vacation rentals are so popular.  At the northern tip of the valley, above the agricultural center of Vernon, is Shuswap Lake and the neighbouring towns of Salmon Arm, Chase, Sorrento and Sicamous. 

A favourite vacation destination for many Canadians, Shuswap Lake is considered the houseboat capital of Canada.  Captivating scenery and excellent fishing, skiing and boating opportunities make it a prime winter and summer playground and an excellent place to find Okanagan vacation rentals.

The cities of Kelowna, Westbank and Peachland lie at the center of the Okanagan Valley.  Kelowna hosts a variety of events during the region's seasonal wine festivals and with an International Airport close by, serves as a major commercial town for much of the Okanagan.  There are also many Okanagan vacation rentals to be found in this area. 

The southern region of the valley extends to Osoyoos, just above the Canada-US border and is known for having the warmest lake, lowest rainfall and highest temperatures in Canada.  To the north of Osoyoos, Oliver, Okanagan Falls, Vaseux Lane, Penticton, Summerland and Naramata complete the South Okanagan.

Situated between 24 k long Skaha Lake and 24k long Okanagan Lake, Penticton is a favourite four seasons tourist and holiday destination and offers a great selection of Okanagan vacation rentals.  In the heart of wine country, this area and surrounding communities offer great beaches, hiking, mountain biking, boating, shopping, nightlife and many other amenities which make for a memorable vacation in the Okanagan.  Penticton is also home to the Penticton Challenge race every August and attracts triathletes from all over the world.
