Lake Life Is Better

Why Kelowna? Why Not Kelowna!

Kelowna is the third-largest metropolitan in British Columbia after the coastal cities of Vancouver and Victoria. Our lake-side city happens to be the largest in the British Columbia Interior and is famous for the scenic Okanagan Lake and vineyard-filled vistas coupled with California-like dry, mild climate that supports our farm to table agricultural industry so well.

The city rests on the shores of Okanagan Lake and has become one of the fastest growing cities in North America. It is a bustling tourist hot spot in the summer, while winter fun is minutes away at our local ski mountain Big White Resort!

Our International Airport makes travel easy. So, it’s no secret that you might talk to someone on a chairlift from Boston or meet someone on a wine tour from Germany. The world is getting smaller while Kelowna is getting bigger. Washington State and Albertan residents regularly make pilgrimages to the Okanagan to make use of the lake, skiing or wineries. So don’t be surprised if you see Alberta or Washington plates on the roadways once you arrive.

“No matter where in the city you may choose to live – there are excellent neighbourhoods and the lake is always just minutes away.”

Home to Kelowna is the campus of University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO). The university offers global perspectives, world class instruction and competitive athletic teams for undergraduate and graduate learners alike. The school reflects a vibrant community from around the globe. Each year locals cheer on a variety of Okanagan Heat teams!

The Ellison, Dilworth, Wilden, McKinley, Lake Country and North Glenmore are the closest neighbourhoods to the airport, university life, and Kelowna’s premier private university-preparatory school, Aberdeen Hall, which shares the same hillside as UBCO.

“In our business we are fortunate to meet global clients wanting to invest and reside here either full or part-time. We continue to have relationships with international minded clients looking for a lake town to call home. You just never know where people will come from.”

states Dave Domeij

Kelowna is our home and we think that you will enjoy living here as much as we do!
