We had a wonderful vacation with our two-year old at Playa del Sol. The suite was big enough that he never got bored as there was a lot of space to move around. Having the deck off the back was definitely great for some privacy and we enjoyed the morning sun while we ate breakfast.
We toured around Kelowna on our bikes and felt comfortable leaving them outside locked in the rack at the front of the building. It didn’t seem like a big enough rack for the entire building, but we always managed to find a spot. It seemed secure because there were bikes left unlocked all week and they were still there at the end of it.
Although the location is close to the beach, we found it tiresome to walk with a two year-old so we just popped him into his bike seat and were at the beach in two-minutes. Rotary beach is the closest beach with a great little playground. We enjoyed this beach in the evenings, but much preferred Gyro Beach Park which is just a couple minutes down the road. It is further away from the road and much bigger.
The suite itself was beautiful. It was well stocked with everything that we needed. There were a few spices, oil, vinegar, plastic containers for leftovers, baggies, tinfoil, etc. which we appreciated (but always travel with our own spices too because we love cooking).
During the week it was quite quiet in the courtyard, but the weekends had a much more party atmosphere with lots of families or adult groups. We couldn’t believe how sound-proof the unit was. With the front windows and doors closed, you wouldn’t even know that anyone was outside the unit. Despite rain most of the week, we will be back to Kelowna!
