Happy Valentine’s Day from Island View RV Resort Ltd.!
Its that time of year when people are starting to think of their summer vacations and begin to send in their request forms. We begin reservations for summer mid April but you can submit your requests now. You will receive a confirmation on your request, but we cannot confirm your reservation until April. We will do our best to accommodate everyone. If you are simply wanting to make an inquiry, please use our email service, rather than the request form.
We look forward to another great summer and so happy to be hearing from so many returning guests and new parties who have heard about our great resort.
This summer, we will continue offering as many services as possible, including family dance parties, a nicely stocked beach store, and paddleboard and kayak rentals.

With August starting to wind down, we are seeing abit more availability coming up next week. Its a great time to visit Island view with great weather and the crowds starting to disperse. Most days are hitting 30c, the beach is a little less crowded, and the water warm!
We still have sites available for the September long weekend, which is early this year. Sites are filling quickly and we expect to be full, so book now!
The store hours are now 8 am to 8 pm through the end of the month. The Sugar shack continues to operate from 11 am to 5 pm.
Watch for future news shortly about our september events we are planning for owners and guests at this beautiful resort.

The high season is now here, the weather is amazing, and the resort is bustling with activity. It is happy times at Island View with our gorgeous private beach. The kid’s club is back in action thanks to our wonderful Activities coordinator, there are games available to sign out and planned events through the season for young and old.
We have increased some of the amenities of the resort which adds to the enjoyment for all those who come here. The store, now named The Lakeshore Store, is fully stocked with all the basics and groceries one should expect in a resort beach store, and operates extended hours from 7 am to 10 pm at night. But..we have more! We added an organic Coffee Bar with beans roasted at an Okanagan roastery in Summerland, BC, Lone Tree coffee. We are committed to high quality local products and have brought in a variety of specialty cheeses, meats, jams, dairy, salad dressings, gifts, soaps and more. A beach store would not be complete without a line of quality flip flops…because flip flops are not just a shoe, its a way of life here at Island View! The Havaianas come in a variety of colors, styles and sizes.
We also operate the Sugar Shack, but the name of this little summer ice cream hut no longer accurately describes what we offer there. There is a greatly extended menu we have created, with delicious items such as Paninis, triple grilled cheese, Chicken caesar salad, Quessidillas, and high quality smokies and euro hotdogs. And it doesnt end there. With a great selection of high quality ice creams to choose from, and an assortment of shakes, sundaes, floats, iced coffees, blended coffee drinks and health conscious smoothies…everyone is sure to find something.
It is not uncommon around here now that surprise dances are thrown on the patio in front of the store.
The beach rentals are also being put in place now…chaise lounges can be rented for $10, and the paddle boards and kayaks will soon be here.
Island View is a great place to be, a fabulous family resort. The sun is shining daily, the nights are warm and the entire season is booking quickly.
April 9, 2014 Welcome Snowbirds
This is the time of year we have many of our Canadian ‘snowbirds’ who travel south for the winter, return to Canada. Osoyoos is a popular border crossing, and Island View remains open year round, and always has availability for our travelers. We have some of the best rates around! April is $30 per night (a huge discount from peak season rates of $58). If you stay a week, you are actually getting not one, but TWO nights free at $150/week. Our monthly rate is only $375 which is well over half price! Island View is a great place to book in and enjoy the area, and wait until your home further north or in another province finally warms up and melts. Enjoy the area at a fraction of the price this time of year. There is so much to do in Osoyoos and the area: golf courses are open, there are no crowds in the amazing wineries and restaurants, the sun shines most days, and Osoyoos boasts wonderful walkways thru the town and amazing walks on both sides of the lake. You can walk for miles enjoying the fabulous views of the beaches and water. Many restaurants have great daily specials and watch for the happy hour specials also. Passes are available at some hotels to use their indoor pools, and the visitor centre has so much info on what to do and see. We always have room for you here at our beautiful RV Park, so book a spot or just show up. Sites available are always listed on the door if we are out busy in the park or community.
