In May we made the decision to not tow our trailer to B.C. and instead changed up our dates and rented one of the Holiday Park Resort Peak Homes for the first part of our BC trip.
Summer Vacation At Holiday Park Resort Peak Homes
Being on the water you expect there to be a certain amount of bugs, but the Peak Homes were clean and there wasn’t even a spider web to be found. For 9 nights we enjoyed the clean air-conditioned Peak Home which also featured:
- Two separate bedrooms ( 1 queen, 1 single bunk beds)
- Full bathroom
- Full kitchen with dishwasher, counter seating, and a kitchen table
- Living room with pull out couch, chair, and cable tv
Equipped with all the comforts of home, the only thing we needed to buy was our food and drinks, anything we needed to store leftovers or use for picnics, and laundry detergent to use in the laundry facilities.
Attached to the Peak Home was also a large deck that had a BBQ, 2 large picnic tables and 4 Muskoka chairs. For the first week of our holiday, we actually had friends staying in the same resort and our deck was perfect for enjoying our family meals together, and late-night card games.
Things To Do Around Holiday Park Resort
Last year one of our favourite parts of staying at Holiday Park Resort was all of the family-friendly amenities that were available. I knew going back this year, things would be different for what was actually open however right before we arrived Holiday Park Resort opened one of their pools which you could book in 1-hour increments.
Ellison Lake is also accessible through a private sandy beach. While it is suggested that you don’t swim in the lake it is a good space to spend the day enjoying the summer weather, building sandcastles, and those amazing sunset views.
What Was The Cost?
Because we stayed in the Holiday Park Resort Peak Homes during peak season the cost to rent it was $180/night and came out to $1879.20 once you added in taxes. While this does seem like a hefty price, the amount we saved on gas from not driving our truck and towing the trailer evened itself out.
So would we stay in one of the Peak Homes again? The answer is yes! Not only is it under 30 minutes from downtown Kelowna, but it’s also close to many great beaches, attractions, and more.
Holiday Park is located at1 – 415 Commonwealth Rd, Kelowna, BC. To see what they offer or to book your next summer vacation with them visit their website at www.sweetlife.com/
