About Eileen Dahlseide
My husband Barry and I fell in love with the Penticton area when we vacationed there six years ago. I had visited the region many times as a child and coming back to the area was like coming home. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I feel like the sun shines 90% in the summer! Our family lives in Alberta and we wanted a place to call our own and share with family and friends. We also wanted to vacation where we had a very high chance of great weather....we found it in Penticton. As we both still work full time, we decided to share our property for rent to other to enjoy the beauty of this region. We enjoy traveling and renting from VRBO owners (the picture of us when we rented through VRBO in Costa Rica) We love going to Penticton for a few weeks each year and hope that you will enjoy it also.

We had a great time. It is a great location and easy to walk to everywhere. Would book again
The check in process was very easy, the facilities were great, and the location is very convenient.
A few practical things for prospective renters to be aware of:
- The bedroom on the first floor has two single beds pushed together into one large bed, which is a bit uncomfortable in the centre when they come together.
- The availability of the bikes is amazing (helmets as well). However, keep in mind there is no bike tire pump available, and the bikes may not have been used much. We had to bring one of the bikes to the local bike place (<2min walk away) to ask for a pump up.
- There aren’t many condiments and basic meal items available but there was oil, some spices, coffee, salt and pepper. There were linens for cleaning, but no paper towels.
- The wine information centre will ship your wine for you so you don’t have to fly with it!
- They have a TV with cable, which is great. Might want to bring HDMI to watch Netflix if wanted.
Perfect home base
Great place to stay to explore Penticton and the surrounding area. Had everything we needed for our stay.
Bright and comfortable, quiet
Bright with high ceilings, modern amenities. The garage was great. When we arrived the keypad battery was dead on the front door, luckily there was another keypad on the garage side of the house. This is a duplex home. It was very quiet. Could use a deep clean, first impression was dirty carpets. Shower curtain in en-suite was orange from mildew, luckily there was second bath at entry level, we used it. Could use a new drip coffee pot. Lots of towels, washer and dryer were great. The bedding was very tired. This home is not good for people that can’t climb stairs as you enter at ground level and kitchen living area are all on second level. The location is good, close to the beach and walking. Some pantry items but could use some of the basics.
Beautiful home, wonderful hosts!
A perfect location in a beautiful neighbourhood. We went for a walk along the beach every night! It is within walking distance to so much; downtown shopping, farmers market and theatre. The South Okanagan Event Center is only a few minutes walk and there are many wonderful restaurants only a few blocks away.
The home is beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed. Lots of room for grandkids to stay and to entertain family. We stayed for a couple months and it truly felt like home.
The hosts were very helpful, definitely recommend staying here!
Thank you for taking the time to give our house a review. It is much appreciated. We travel and spend time in VRBO houses and it is the reviews that help me get a feel for what to expect and plan for during my stay in an unknown City or Country. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay.
We strongly recommend staying here
Our stay was great. This is the second time we stayed here. The house is spacious, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The location is excellent, 2 minute walk to the beach, the Farmers Market on Saturdays is less than a 5 minute walk. There are many restaurants and pubs within walking distance. We will be back
Penticton is in the heart of wine country. 40 wineries within 15 minute drive. Spend the day tasting wine and the various unique wineries, enjoy lunch on a winery patio. The beach is a 1 minute walk from our house, relax in the sun, swim in the warm waters and enjoy a meal at one of many restaurant's across from the beach. Enjoy a walk or bicycle ride along one of the many pathways starting at the beach. Or chose to spend the day floating down the river on an inflatable. Live doesn't get any better. Saturday morning Farmer's Market with local produce cannot be missed. The market is three blocks long and only 5 minutes to our rental. The local 8 theater Cinema is just two block away. So many things to do including local golf courses and a water's edge casino.
