I am delighted to report that my stay at The Strand was just what I had hoped for. First of all the complex is right on the Okanagan Lake with a beautiful heated pool and maintained beach area...and a wharf if you have a boat! Michele has stocked her condo with all the necessities; you simply need to stock the fridge! The condo is modern, clean, bright and cheerful. The fireplace turns on with a switch if you want "cozy." All the light fixtures work, there are tons of linens and towels and the washer/dryer and dishwasher are there to serve you. There is an abundance of cleaning supplies and paper products. Really...you can simply pack up your personal belongings and settle in. Michele even placed somed fresh flowers on the dining table; they lasted my entire stay! Thank you! One suggestion - I wish there had been a screen door heading out onto the tiny patio. There were a few insects buzzing around so I had to keep the condo door shut. I highly recommend The Strand for anyone who wants to enjoy Vernon and the Okanagan Lake experience. Mimi M.
