Sun worshippers soak up the warm spring, summer and fall temperatures that living in Canada’s true desert offers.
Luxurious condos in the Valley of the Sun
Savvy investors are going south where desert developments sizzle
The South Okanagan’s premier development company, Okanagan Desert Developments Inc. has a master plan of resort-style exclusive properties in Canada’s only Desert. Nestled quietly in the quaint Spanish style community of Osoyoos, British Columbia, three luxurious condominium developments are emerging in the desert sun.
Okanagan Desert Developments specializes in sales and rental projects including The Desert Mirage, The Desert Court and The Desert Sunrise developments. All three resort style properties are located in the heart of Osoyoos, with all the convenience of local amenities – boutique shops, grocery outlets, fresh fruit stands, restaurants, and services.
Location is everything
Sun worshippers soak up the warm spring, summer and fall temperatures that living in Canada’s true desert offers. With Osoyoos Lake temperatures reaching highs of 24 C (70 F), Osoyoos is paradise for swimmers, windsurfers, water skiers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Golfers often play Osoyoos Golf & Country Club’s 27-hole championship course and the seven other surrounding championship desert courses year round. There are more than fifty commercial, estate and farmgate wineries to tour and taste. They offer world-class wine, bistro’s and picnic areas to enjoy the sensational views. For those that desire relaxation and retirement, it’s a peaceful haven that will last a lifetime.
The richness of the Okanagan desert style, thoughtfully designed by architect, Matthew Coady, AIBC, reflects the flavours of a luxurious but casual Spanish resort destination.

It’s pretty shocking to buy a unit in a strata complex only to find that the building or property needs major repairs — work you didn’t know about before you made your purchase. It could be extremely expensive and you don’t even know how much of the total bill you will have to pay.
