Whether you're planning a world-class ski trip, a weekend of wine-tasting, or a few days of lakeside lounging, you'll find it all within a stone's throw of our Kelowna vacation rentals. Perched on the eastern edge of British Columbia's Okanagan Lake, this vibrant city of 130,000 is known and loved for its warm summers, temperate winters, and incredible proximity to outdoor adventure.
Kelowna sits in the heart of the Okanagan Valley in breathtaking British Columbia, and is served by the Kelowna International Airport nine miles northeast of downtown. Here on the shores of Okanagan Lake, you'll be 83 miles north of Oroville, WA, and 240 miles northeast of Vancouver's sparkling skyscrapers.
The beauty of our Kelowna vacation homes is not merely their natural surroundings. It's the draw of those surroundings in each and every season.
The winter months are a perfect time to dine at farm-to-table restaurants, skate at the Stuart Park Ice Rink on the water's edge, and ski and snowboard the region's renowned alpine terrain. Head 39 miles east to the powder slopes of Big White Ski Resort, where you'll find 118 trails and the largest night skiing area in all of Western Canada. Kelowna is also just 46 miles south of Silver Star Mountain Resort (the third-largest ski resort in British Columbia) and 60 miles north of the advanced, uncrowded terrain at Apex Mountain Resort.
Come warmer weather, you'll have ample opportunities to stroll the lakefront boardwalk, tee off at one of the 18 local golf courses, and build sandcastles and launch kayaks at Hot Sands Beach, Boyce-Gyro Beach, and Rotary Beach. Kelowna and its environs are also home to three distinct winemaking regions, five wine trails, and more than 30 wineries and vineyards open for tasting and touring.
