About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom rancher, 1/2 acre, quiet neighborhood, 5 mins to beach

On a 1/2 acre lot along a no-thru road, you'll find our house and yard to be very quiet and private. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 6 guests can stay very comfortably. Washer and dryer is yours to use as well. With 3 large porches you can enjoy breakfast in the sun or dinner with the setting sun. The yard is very large with room for a great game of soccer or Frisbee. Lots of trees provide shade to escape to in the hot sun. A basketball court with 2 hoops makes for great fun with the kids. Our garden, planted with many vegetables and herbs, is also yours to eat from.

An Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

Upon opening the front door of the Mennell's home in Penticton we were glad this was the place we booked for our holiday with our family. The home is spacious, 5 adults and 2 grandchildren had lots of room to move about or to find a place to themselves. Penticton in the summertime is warm and we made good use of the huge yard and the bountiful garden which was an appreciated bonus. Our son and son-in-law love to cook. Thankfully the kitchen was well stocked with every utensil and pot they needed to prepare a variety of meals. The Mennell's children provided a treasure trove of toys and books that our grandson enjoyed immensely. If anyone is looking for a place to rent in Penticton do not hesitate to book this place.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of three generations. It was very clean and well set up with an open concept living room/kitchen, a great place for the family to congregate. We loved the views out front and back. The yard/driveway were great for kids and adults to play (basketball etc). Our hosts looked after us very well and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. We would for sure recommend this home as a great place to stay.

Absolutely loved staying in this beautiful, welcoming home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and has everything you need to relax and enjoy the region. We are a family of 5 that includes 3 teenagers and there was plenty of room. The KVR is very nearby and accessible for walks and runs. The neighbourhood is quiet and the perfect location to access either of the lakes within minutes. We were made to feel very welcome and even got to enjoy eating the vegetables growing in their large garden. I would definitely want to stay here again in the future.

Incredible house, loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! It worked perfectly for our two families. Close enough to both lakes but far enough to feel quiet and peaceful. We loved the mountain view from the front porch and the beautiful garden in the backyard. We had some amazing produce from their impressive vegetable garden and their lovely neighbor brought over a huge bucket of cherries. We absolutely loved this cozy home.

Beautiful Home and Yard

  • 4 of 5

We had an 8 night stay at this beautiful home Aug 2016. We loved the front and back yard along with the decks and porches. The landscaping is gorgeous. This home is well maintained and access to Okanagan Lake was a 10min drive. Skaha lake was only about 15min drive. The home is located in the West Bench area so its on a hill with great views! You can see the PENTICTON signage from way across town from the front porch. There is plenty of shade and sun options throughout the day. Most importantly this is a pet friendly home and we were allowed to bring our 3 small dogs on our family vacation. The open concept in the kitchen and living room with the huge picture window showing the gorgeous view was a treat when we spent evenings inside playing games, eating and just chilling. There is air conditioning, however it wasn't needed as the house remains quite cool. There's a vegetable garden to pick from and friendly neighbours. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
