This Costa Sol gem, "Grandma's Elephant Hideaway" is a lovely three-bedroom open-concept duplex, two blocks from Okanagan Lake beach and parks in an amazing location!  Minutes away from restaurants, shops, and a variety of activities. The event centre, gym, hockey rink, library, pool and Casino are all within a 5min walk. It's the perfect place for families or small groups of up to 6, looking to explore wineries and breweries, small groups for a golfing vacation. There is no better place if you attend a convention, or concert, looking to take advantage of the beautiful beaches, skiing at Apex (35min drive), or mountain biking. There are three bedrooms (1 king room, 2 Queens rooms) and a large living room area. City of Penticton inspected and sanctioned vacation rental (#00113298).

Enjoy high-end hotel quality beds, high-speed wifi, a BBQ, a large cable package with Netflix, Crave, HBO, and Prime. There are also many family board games available for your use. A printer, screen and desk are equipped in the house, which is great for business travellers or families homeschooling. The kitchen is also very well equipped with everything you could need and more - it even has an air fryer. And the complimentary laundry room is there for your use if needed as well.

Sip our own roasted coffee in the sun in the mornings on the East facing deck, and enjoy covered shade BBQs in the afternoons. You will also have access to a private parking garage to park your vehicle, or store your bicycles – or to store your sports equipment (golf clubs, skis, bicycles, strollers, hockey equipment, etc.).

To promote an enjoyable vacation experience and be mindful of the neighbor's in the building, please note there are no parties or events.

About the Owner

Hi, I'm Debbie. My husband Dale and I are excited to have you at Grandma's Elephant Hideaway. My Mother-in-Law loved Elephants, and we started this venture after seeing the fun they had with the Elephant Cottage Bed and Breakfast back in the '90s. Unfortunately, she is gone, but now it is our turn to share our love of Elephants with you. We donate to elephant sanctuaries every year, and some of your stays go to support that. We both enjoy travelling, and visiting our kids - and especially our eleven (soon to be twelve) grandkids. You may see us at a local winery, a brewery (Dales's favourite is Slackwater). While you stay at our favourite hideaway, you will enjoy some special touches, like locally roasted coffee (and we may have roasted it), some local treats, and more. We promise to do what we can to make your stay enjoyable. If you have suggestions, we hope you will let us know. My husband Dale, has travelled extensively volunteering to help local communities and businesses recover from disasters. Our venture into Short Term Rentals comes as a result of the 1000's of nights he has spent in hotel rooms. I have been fortunate to travel with him at times. We have tried to combine the things we do like to have when we stay somewhere and done our best to eliminate the ones we do not like. Always happy to get feedback on how we could make it even better.
