The Space

From January 2013 you can enjoy the luxury and the privacy of our elegant estate. Endless amenities at your fingertips provide indulgence options. You live in the top vacation segment in the Okanagan Valley. Experience the tranquil paradise that is villa Orion.

Since 1981 we own this 4 1/2 acre property. In 2008 we built our modern design Villa Orion at the cliff edge of Okanagan Lake. The ground floor has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a powder room, a kitchen, a dining area and a living room. The first floor has the atrium (the cinema/cable tv area + the walk & sitting glass vestibule), a bathroom, extra queen size bed and the patio (the game area + the outdoor lifestyle furniture).
In the basement is a Miele washing machine, dryer and space for your suitcases + wines). Outside the villa you find diverse terraces, landscaped gardens and a huge windshine chime.

At your fingertips you enjoy the Five Star amenities, modern technologies, art and entertainment.

Villa Orion is the best destination for:
1. A SKI holiday because of its climate conditions and its family friendly ski resorts/areas in a drivers' distance of 35 minutes till 3 hours from villa Orion.
2. A BEACH holiday because of its climate. An average 2000+ hours of sunshine per year, which is a higher average than Rio de Janeiro and Hawaii. To the silent public beach just below our clay cliffs it is a seven minutes' walk. And the other larger beaches are between 5 till 20 minutes' drive from Villa Orion.
3. A GOLF & LEISURE holiday because of the existence of 36 golf courses (5 till 60 minutes drive). Besides the golf season is beginning in March and ending late November.
4. The gorgeous WINES & 40 WINERIES at the Naramata Bench. A 3 till 35 minutes drive from Villa Orion.
5. Its numerous FESTIVALS throughout the year. A 5 minutes' drive from Villa Orion

  • This Villa was absolutely beautiful and matched the pictures and descriptions in every way. It held a quiet ambiance and was perfect for us on a book writing retreat. The views were stunning and the place immaculate. The delightful hosts, Valerie and Chad, met us on time and gave us a quick tour. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped and we lacked for nothing. The towels were lush and warm (had a towel warming rack in the master bath) and had a large soaker/jetted tub for two. We did not use the spa shower unit but it did look inviting! The WI-FI was fast and easy to connect to. The property was gated and only a couple minutes to downtown Penticton which was what we were looking for. There was a walking trail nearby which we used even on the cool windy days. We had a splendid time and hope to return for another stay at Orion Villa.
