Thank you for considering our home for your vacation. My name is Carmen and I will be your host. You may also meet one or both of my awesome children, Kali is my daughter and Nick is my son. We have lived in beautiful Penticton for most of our lives and are all familiar with the many attractions and amenities our area offers. I have a diverse background and lately have been traveling to research ancient megalithic places. I enjoy meeting new people and have many friends I socialize with, often enjoying nights out in area wineries and restaurants. I have always had horses and still own one that is currently located on the property. We enjoy getting out on a trail ride out our driveway and on to our local mountains or even to the beach for a swim or horseback wine tour…Living on the start of Naramata Bench it’s hard not to feel like a tourist in our own town most days! We welcome you to our area and look forward to you finding that our place in Penticton is truly a “Place To Stay Forever!” Well almost…

(Y)our home is situated just off Upper Bench Road 5 minutes from town, beaches, wineries, restaurants, farmers markets, shopping, walking/biking/hiking/horseback riding trails and almost all the attractions the area offers…Local ski hill is only a short 25 minute drive up scenic Green Mountain Road.
We are nestled off the road, in a private estate like property, that is gated and has ample, secured parking. It is a small 2 acre, flat, hobby farm/apple orchard that is very private and quiet. We have neighbours on either side but not too close. We like to respect our neighbors and not block our common driveway access and mind all noise bylaws by 11pm. Please use common courtesy in the above regard.
