About Kathy Salmon

Hi - our names are Mike and Kathy. We have been enjoying Penticton for years of cycling, mountain biking, athletic competitions, the Saturday Market, and wineries.

Kathy Salmon purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Kathy Salmon chose Penticton

We loved the property's location and beach. We thought it would be a great place for our family of six and a place where our friends could stay on cycling trips. This is a new property for us in Penticton but Kathy has been a successful VRBO Property Manager for her place in Fernie. Check out her listing #445219 for reviews. We hope the Sunshine Lake House on Skaha is just as amazing for our guests!

Gorgeous family vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

This place was fantastic!

Location was great for access to Skaha Bluffs and lake were perfect. It had a very child safe set up and lots of room to play. The home had everything we needed.

The only thing I would improve would be the initial access into the property as there was a timing error for check in. Thankfully, the owners were amazing and swift with responding to communication and we were able to get in a little later than planned.

We’re already looking forward to planning our next trip back! Thank you for the amazing opportunity!

Wonderful place to relax

  • 4 of 5

Although the vacation rental house was used primarily for relaxing in the evening and sleep accommodation, the setting was beautiful, even in the November off season. The vacation rental accommodated guests from Norway, only a short distance from the hosts own home, and each guest was impressed by the clean, modern and scenic environment. All was as advertised, and tastefully furnished.

Great house, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home write on the lake. Nice open kitchen, dining, and living area for group or family dinners. Well stocked with games and water toys. Only thing missing is a stereo so be sure to bring your own portable one. Hot tub would also be an incredible addition to the deck! I might ask to move in though. :-)

My husband and I along with another couple had the pleasure of staying at the Sunshine house this past spring. The house was perfectly set up for sharing with two bedrooms in the main part of the house and a two bedroom suite above the garage. We were able to enjoy each other’s company but still have some privacy and our own washroom. The house was very well stocked with dishes and cooking basics, comfortable and easy to maintain. The garage was a welcome addition for storing our golf clubs, bikes, coolers etc. The deck, overlooking the lake, provided many hours of relaxation on sunny afternoons. It was not unusual to see deer, quail, ducks and geese in the yard or while walking the dog.

There were so many opportunities for day trips and activities in this area that it is impossible to mention them all. The house is located at the base of the Skaha Bluffs which is a popular spot for hiking. It is just a short distance to Penticton and Naramata where we enjoyed biking and hiking along the KVR trail, visiting local wineries and restaurants such as Hill Side Estate. There is a walkway that runs along the south end of Okanagan Lake that encompasses an art gallery, Japanese Garden, marina, casino, parks and some unique spots to grab a lunch or coffee as well as a well maintained beach. Further east, The Bench restaurant was a favorite spot for tourists and locals alike. Closer to the house, Skaha Park (a favourite with our dog) has tennis courts, picnic tables, play grounds and washrooms. There are several golf courses in the vicinity but we only went on two courses: Twin Lakes and Skaha Meadows. Skaha Meadows is the closest and is open year round. It did not seem to matter where we drove, the vistas were amazing. The hour drive down to Osoyoos was very scenic and provided more opportunities to visit wineries and site see.

Everyone in our group had a wonderful vacation and really appreciated having such a nice place to stay.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and Kathy went the extra mile to make sure everything worked out. It is nice to work with such a responsive owner. This property is well kept and is very pet-friendly including a fenced back yard which is pretty hard to find. There was also a wonderful garden while we were there. Grapes were sweet and we enjoyed the Chard and beets and the grandchildren took home some pumpkins. It is also very close to a park with great hiking. Also, had a great wine tasting at Pentage 5 minutes up the road. This property would also be great for two families as 2 of the bedrooms have their own wing and bathroom. Highly recommended!
