Canadian Snowbird Life in the South Okanagan

Winters in Canada can be harsh, we know. When it’s -35°C outside with 3 feet of freshly fallen snow and you’re trapped in your house because the roads are a mess, we’re sitting in Osoyoos, taking in one of the mildest winter climates in the country.

Canadian Snowbird in OsoyoosThese days, Watermark Beach Resort has become a haven for Canadian snowbirds looking to escape the difficult, freezing cold of other Canadian regions, without the hassle of owning a property in the United States or Mexico. In fact, at Watermark Beach Resort, the long-term stay pricing is so affordable that you can easily rent a well-appointed condo in our lakefront property for less than what you would pay in almost any urban centre. Our monthly winter rates range from $999-$2499, making it affordable to live the snowbird life without leaving Canada.

Firstly, our resort is located in the heart of downtown Osoyoos, right on the shores of Osoyoos Lake, offering beautiful views, and easy access to all of the attractions and amenities that the town has to offer. Of course, there is plenty to do at the resort too, including an outdoor hot tub, steam rooms and fitness centre, the full service Illumination Spa, and Breathe Yoga and Pilates.

Watermark Beach Resort is also home to an incredibly popular Wine & Tapas Bar, the perfect place to share a meal among friends, or a romantic glass of wine and a bite to eat with that special someone. Dishes at the Wine & Tapas Bar include delicious, warm comfort food at reasonable prices. Many of the ingredients for these amazing dishes are sourced directly from local producers, bringing ‘Farm to Table’ culture to Watermark Beach Resort. Being located in the South Okanagan means that you can’t have a great meal without great wine, and we are proud to offer delicious wines from the renowned Okanagan Valley.
