Vacation Rentals in Okanagan Wine Country

    Take vacation rentals Villa Orion Penticton as your home base for your Okanagan Wine Tours, Winery Restaurants and Wine Festivals.

    Vacation rentals are great places to spend time with the loved ones. From preparing meals together to having cocktails by your own loggia, from hiring a chef to teach you how to make the perfect “Tortellini” to sharing some good old memories, a holiday home experience can create fun and memorable moments.
    A holiday home is also a fantastic venue for those seeking an intimate place to celebrate a memorable occasion or a milestone event.

    When you enter our gated estate – photo gallery 1 – you can oversee this 4 ½  acre private retreat property in front of you.

    After pushing the right code you enter our gated property. Follow the cedar lined lane through our peach orchard to our red front door (photo gallery 2).

    Please park your car. There is ample parking place. First the introvert rear side of the villa is presenting itself with the kitchen window and the red front door.

    Chinese stepping stones lead you in a sensory journey through the grounds: to the Bench garden with many different roses, grasses and trees.

    To the monk-tones of the giant chime – photo gallery 3 – hung high in the circle of pines and firs. An ideal location for meditation and reflection. Behind this small forest is the house of our local concierge responsible for your safety, privacy and emergency problems.

    Lakeside view of villa Orion. Floor to ceiling glass is providing dramatic views and is provoking a spectacular fascination. And is introducing incoming light deep into our home interior, which is even more accentuated by many crystals spread through our living room.
