“Fabulous getaway!!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We found the Sandy Beach by accident as we were looking for a place to stay for a few nights in Osoyoos. One look at the beautifully kept grounds and villa style buildings and we knew we wanted to stay there. And we were not disappointed. We stayed in one of the new deluxe villas which were amazing but we did have a look at some of the other suites and they looked very comfortable also. All the suites have fully equipped kitchens. The sandy beach was great - lots of sun space but some shady areas for when it got hot in the afternoon. There were lots of beach chairs and for those who want water sports there are several kayaks and canoes. As well there are several BBQ's scattered around the property if you want to do some grilling. Tennis courts, a playground and a badminton/volleyball area make this a something for everyone resort motel. And it was very restful and quiet at night - no loud partiers. Sherry and Brent made us feel like family, Donna on the front desk was extremely helpful and the ladies who made up the rooms were friendly also. We didn't want to go home at the end of our stay but we know we will be back next year!!!

Room Tip: All Suites (except cottages which are in the garden) have a beach view and some are beachfront. Balc...

Stayed in one of the new rooms overlooking the lake. Very nicely appointed. As per usual - awesome service from the managers Sherry and Brent. Kids had a blast! New beds very comfortable.

Sharon and Brent go out of their way to make sure your stay is wonderful. Even when we were there recently with unusually wet weather, they make you feel you are with family. We will continue to go back every year for their great location and hospitality.

Mrs. MumsBua and I were celebrating pur 10-yr anniversary with an extra-long weekend in the Okanagan and booked ourselves into the Sandy Beach Motel in Osoyoos, BC. Having already stayed here once before we knew exactly what to expect. Despite the less-than-ideal weather we had a stellar time - Sherry went out of her to way to help us organize a wine tour on Monday and figure out some long run routes away from traffic.

I can very much recommend the top-level 2-BR corner suite directly at the beach with unobstructed view over the lake. The suite is almost new and very clean, comes with a full-size stove and fridge and a comfortable little balcony/patio that is sheltered from the wind (that can sometimes blow pretty strong across Lake Osoyoos). The rooms also have reliable, high-speed internet (good enouigh for Mrs. MumsBua to get some work done on our anniversary weekend ;) ) There are 2 shared BBQ areas, one in the courtyard and one outside by the kids' playground, both with large clean BBQs. The Sandy Beach Motel also has a lawn-covered Volleyball court (great for making new friends!), a tennis court and the, well, sandy beach is just awesome. (Brent put some sturdy beach chairs out that were perfect for a mid-afternoon nap).

Parking might get a little tight on weekends directly in front but there's ample parking across the street.

What else: being a sweet tooth I liked having DQ just around the corner. Downtown Osoyoos with all its restaurants and shopping (incl. groceries) is a 5-10 minute walk from the Sandy Beach and Sherry has all the contacts for wine tours and -guides, waterskiing, golfing, etc...

Check it out, you won't get disappointed!

Room Tip: The view from the 2-BR Lake Front suite across the lake was breathtaking and you are right there at...

This is the best place in Osoyoos for famlies with children. You won't find nicer people and a nicer place. The owners are wonderful caring individuals, and give attention to detail that will make your stay enjoyable. If you are the parting type of people, then you need to go some where else to stay where they don't care.

We've been staying at the Sandy Beach Motel for years. It just keeps getting better and better.
Brent and Sherry give such attention to detail. You couldn't ask for nicer people and a nicer place. Located right on the Beach in Osoyoos. The rooms are very clean and the views from the rooms our spectacular. We usually stay there twice a year for a week. Great for families or couples.

We booked at the Sandy Beach Motel and this was the best thing we have ever done. The owners are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The suites are first class, clean, fully equipped and the view of the lake is unbelievable. If we need anything-all we do is ask . They are also very helpful on giving information on scenic routes -knowing after they have visited, what our interests are and places that we would enjoy. We have always been treated like family and when we leave there are a few tears shed. I would strongly recommend this motel to anyone, as a matter of fact-we have given the information for the Sandy Beach to friends, relatives and aquaitances as the best place to stay in Osoyoos. The experience of staying with Brent and Sherry will be one you will cherish for a lifetime.

Room Tip: The suites on the second level you can see more and they are quieter
