This home is ideal for a family getaway, housing two full master suites, two full bunk rooms and a hid-a-bed in the playroom. It houses two pools, two hot tubs and a full gym. A sandy beach with fire pits is only a 5 minute stroll away, and about a dozen wineries in the area are within a few minute’s drive.
In winter season it’s a good place for a skiing holiday, where Mt Baldy Ski Area is less than a 1 hour drive away, Apex Mountain Resort is about 1.5 hour’s drive, and it’s 2.25 hours to Manning Park or Big White. While summer and fall times are good for consuming orchard harvests, where you can taste fresh fruits directly from trees.
a stunning oasis for the whole family in the warm osoyoos sunshine
