Beachfront Neighbourhoods that Embrace the Okanagan Lifestyle

At McKinley Beach and The Cottages, you’ll feel like you’re on vacation all year long.

McKinley Beach

Life at McKinley Beach is like living a dream, with lakefront homes offering breathtaking views, a sunny beach to stroll, and spectacular surroundings to explore. Only this extraordinary place is a real neighbourhood.
A private 110-slip marina is the ultimate set-up for boaters. Reservations are now being taken for the Boathouse dryland marina, a place to store boats onshore that comes with valet service. Place a call when you want your vessel in the water and it will be ready when you are. When you’re done, your pleasure craft will be placed back in its spot so you can simply step off and hand over the keys to go relax in your contemporary, warm West Coast home.

Bring a picnic to the beach and cook on custom barbecues. Or head to the forested trails for hiking and mountain biking.

When you live and play at McKinley Beach, you’ll never want to leave.
