“beautiful, well-appointed suite!”
Reviewed August 27, 2010

We stayed here for 3 nights on our way out to Whistler this summer. There are 5 of us with 3 teeanagers. We found the suite very comfortable and well-appointed: air con(we needed it!), appliances including washer and dryer, and even a wine fridge! The bedrooms were nicely done and the beds very comfortable. LOVED it! We used the pool and hot tub every day. Two of the kids and my husband jumped off the dock and used the beach as well - nice and warm. Highlight was renting a boat - they picked us up at the Strand dock and we dropped boat there at end of day. Spectacular weather and scenery, and afterwards it was a quick walk up to the comforts of our suite to barbecue. Only a 5 minute drive to groceries, etc. Our younger teens enjoyed the waterslides park just outside Vernon and we all loved the Blue Heron restaurant which we walked to a few times from the Strand!

We stayed at The Strand for a week this August.
The accommodations were perfect. Roomy enough for our family of 4 and all the extra's we needed. Was thrilled to find a washer and dryer in our unit. Perfect. Loved that the kitchen had everything we would need, and grocery stores close by. Great barbecue and great patio area. Loved the pool area and the courtyard. Would stay there again in a heartbeat, but next time for 2 weeks or more.

This was our second stay at this resort and have been impressed with it each time. Each time we stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. They have large rooms with full kitchen, stainless steel appliances, barbeque and a deck off each room. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, utensils and everything you need to prepare a meal. Saved us a lot of $$ on eating out. 3 TV's, 2 full baths, washer, dryer, storage room (great for my hockey gear this last time!), fireplace and an X-box. They also allow pets which was great for us and our 2 furry friends. A very nice pool and hot tub area, plus a lake a few feet away. They have a dock there as well, although we did not take advantage of any boat rentals. The rooms facing the lake have a beautiful view, or there are very nice views of the center courtyard (check out their website, it is a nice resort!!). Located a few minutes from downtown Vernon, it is a quiet location, but stores are nearby to get things you need. Parking is underground, with additional parking available outside the resort. There is also an area to park boat trailers beside the resort. These are condos that people own and they rent them out for travelers. There is no daily room service and you take your garbage out yourself when it is full. Still, everything is easy to access and the laid back atmosphere is very relaxing. Our daughter and her friend enjoyed the fact they had a room to themselves away from nagging adults. I would highly recommend this resort to families, or to couples traveling together due to the large rooms and multitude of amenities. My family also likes the fact it is Vernon, a small city that has the same nice weather as Kelowna, but is less busy and much friendlier. We find it a nice central location to travel the Okanogan from.

The Strand staff were very accommodating. Excellent Service. The facility was an amazing setting. My daughter was getting married in Vernon so having the facility work very well. The setting was beautiful and the manager Phyllis was very accommodating letting us take wedding photo's on the property. Our room was a home away from home. They had everything we needed. The location on the lake was wonderful especially in the 34 degree weather we were having, the air conditioning was awesome. The rooms were extremely quite and it was nice to know that we were not bothering any other guests with all the company we had coming and going to the wedding. We are planning to return next year as a family. It is a great Canadian vacation spot. I highly recommend it.

This was my second summer holiday at the Strand and I plan to go back again next year. It's a quiet place— this isn't like a Club Med resort with group activities and nightly shows and stuff. It's pretty quiet, which I like. The kind of place to hang by the pool or the hot tub. We roasted marshmallows with the kids at night around the courtyard firepit. There's a beautiful dock and you can rent a slip for your boat or there are places near by that will rent you one for a few days and let you keep it there. The scenery is breathtaking and it's a nice quiet corner of the best lake in BC, without many other boaters which was great when we took the kids out waterskiing to not have to be dodging boats everywhere like we've found is a problem in Kelowna. There's a gorgeous beach just down the road. The rooms are almost brand new, with cool designs, and are clean and very comfortable. Ours had a great patio and a great Weber barbecue and we ate outside, enjoying the beautiful okanagan sunset every night. The kids had a blast and we did too for the same price we've paid for scruffier hotels in Kelowna. Nearby grocery, gas, golf, liquor, spas, wineries, etc., but far enough away from the city of Vernon that the nights are very quiet. Try the Blue Heron restaurant nearby — a local fave, and you can drive your boat right up. Definitely recommend the Strand.

More like a condo development they couldn't sell! Nothing resort like about this with less facilities than your average condo residence in Vancouver. Very small bathroom, outdoor jacuzzi was not working (couldn't even get that right on a long weekend), a cleaning fee of $160 on a 2 night stay, moldy old popcorn under the sofa bed, no bedding for the the queen sofa bed, very disappointing. Could have spent a week in an All Inclusive for less money. The website exaggerates the property qualities.

Thank you for bringing to our attention your less than perfect stay. We strive for "Exceptional Resort Experiences". We will be contacting you directly to discuss your stay.
We anticipated having the hot tub operational for the long weekend unfortunately the part needed to repair this was backordered. We do hope you enjoyed full use of our heated pool.
