New Restaurant & Enticing Events Calendar

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Veranda Beach has a new restaurant – Globe at the Beach- as Jude Brunt and Paul Doherty owners of Globe Café & Tapas Bar at Big White and Sun Peaks, join the Veranda Beach Crew on Lake Osoyoos to open Globe at the Beach this weekend. Those who have come to love the previous 1950’s Diner style menu as part of your summer at Veranda, need not be alarmed as Globe will continue to offer great onion rings, an awesome burger, homemade authentic milkshakes and the infamous rootbeer float! But your dining choices will be further enhanced with the addition of fabulous Italian specialty coffees to start your day, and a more extensive, great tasting lunch and dinner menu inspired by the cultures and cuisines of the owner’s travels – full of fresh, fun and creative summer comfort foods all cooked from scratch using the best local ingredients. Globe will also offer daily chefs special creations, a wider selection of local boutique wines and beers and many culinary theme events featuring cuisines from around the world.

Wasting no time, Globe at the Beach will bring forth international flavours from England, Italy and Atlantic Canada in three culinary events in May. Upon opening the doors on Saturday, Globe at the Beach extends an invitation to the English custom of afternoon tea for Mother’s Day, followed by Mother’s Day Brunch the following day. Two weeks later it’s off to Italy for “An Italian Job” Winemaker’s Dinner on May 22nd with a five course Italian cuisine and wine pairing dinner, showcasing Barbera varietals from both the old and new world, and soon to be produced from the Veranda vineyard. And a week later, it’s Celtic Lobster Fest. You gotta be here.

Ahhh, back to the Beach…

It is arguably the most beautiful time of the year in the  South Okanagan with the orchards all coming into bloom –  the colors are amazing. Airport manager Steve Johnston reports the runway expansion is not far off.  The Airport is busy with flights as clearing customs is so easy at Oroville.   Customs will meet incoming international flights with an hours notice.  I wonder how long it will be before we see regular charters from Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver delivering guests to Veranda Beach?   Wow, what a weekend, had to get out the sunscreen.  The Groeneveld girls were the first in the lake this year though it’s bit chilly yet they said.

Another Great Weekend at the Beach!

Friends at the pool and wakeboarding at the end of September.  Wow what a summer!

What a Week at Veranda Beach!

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Kicked off the week with Sports Day at Veranda Beach. Entered the bocce tournament, joined the raft race and watched the kids go crazy in the watermelon eating contest! Danced under the stars that night to a great band. Put the boat in the water the next day and spent the week on the water tubing, waterskiing and knee boarding, and aside the water on the beach and by the pool. Spent our last evening at Mediterranean Night in the Dairy Point Diner where we enjoyed a terrific buffet. Already booked for next year! You should too!

Water Skiing Fun!

Friday, July 24th, 2009

Water skiied this morning at Veranda Beach for the first time in 20 years. What a riot! What was even better was watching the smiles on my boys’ faces as they tried water skiing for the very first time. Athletic sorts that they are and with some great coaching, they got up straight away! Another great family moment at Veranda Beach!

What a Night!

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Listened to The Company Band on the Village Center Boardwalk at Veranda Beach last night – these guys are good!  Had a great dinner at the Dairy Point Diner with the Athens family, superb music to follow and danced with my seven year old son under the stars.  All the makings of fond summer holiday memories!

Lovely Forecast

It’s going to be hot, hot, hot for the next 4 days and what better way to keep cool than at Veranda Beach! Over a mile of private sandy beach on Lake Osoyoos and a 30 X 60 swimming pool as well! Loving it!

What a Birthday Celebration!

Monday, July 6th, 2009

2 sets of fireworks in 4 days, both from the boat on Lake Osoyoos, and then a rock & roll live band to continue the July 4th celebration on the boardwalk at Veranda Beach! What a party, what a weekend, what a resort! The chaise lounges were full, the beach was full, even the water trampoline was full! Love this place!
