“Fantastic trip and hosts”
FR: Paul 's reviewsFR: As a host FR: (2)
“We loved this exchange! The house was so relaxing, Paul and Cathy could not have been friendlier. They left us kind gifts and communicated regularly. The neighbours were also really welcoming. We did a bit of running, wine tasting, a lot of hiking, a lot of relaxing and travelled to Banff and Nelson which we really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend exchanging with Paul and Cathi.”
Where is it?
Vernon and the entire Okanagan Valley is a premier Canadian holiday destination area known for its hot dry summers and mild winters. Our home is located in a newer development close to numerous world class golf courses, vineyards and wineries. A must see is the European style Sparkling Hills Wellness Resort and Spa (15 minute drive). Over 3.5 million Swarovski crystals adorn this mountain oasis with amenities unparalleled in North America. Vernon is nestled in the grasslands hills and surrounded by three lakes, each with its unique features and beauty. A 45 minute drive will bring you to the Silverstar Ski Resort. During the summer months a chairlift will whisk riders to the summit for access to a variety of mountain biking trails. During the winter months and adjacent to the Silverstar Ski Resort is Sovereign Lakes with 132kms of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoe trails. Nature is Vernon biggest asset with a myriad of hiking and cycling trails plus provincial parks to explore. The numerous annual festivals, shopping and farmers markets would round out your stay. Filling your days will be easy whether you choose to be an outdoor enthusiast or to just relax on a patio sipping wine.
We also have a small cabin (500 sq ft/46.5 m) on Kootenay Lake, which is a 5 hour drive to the east. Close by to the cabin (20minute drive) is the city of Nelson which is a quaint heritage mountain town, popular for its numerous outdoor patios and funky boutiques. Again golfing, hiking, biking plus all the water sports are readily at hand.
If interested, the cabin is available for all or part of an exchange. Photos are available on request.
