A beautiful, clean, warm water lake, much quieter than the Shuswap. A similar houseboat to ones we’ve booked before on the Shuswap. Difference being a much more reasonable cost, also included gas and insurance. Family owned business with a more personable and accommodating approach. After having some initial issues with our personal boat trailer (which they helped us out with) the boat, the lake and the vacation were very enjoyable.

The staff were organized and helpful. As we were a very large group (28 people in total), we had quite a lot of questions. The staff at Sunshine Houseboats always responded to my questions efficiently and timely. Everything on the boat worked exactly as it should - nothing was broken or malfunctioning. Lake Koocanusa is quite large. We went near the end of August, and by then the lake had warmed up quite a bit, so the kids and the adults spent a lot of time in the water. The slides off the boats were a big hit as were the hot tubs!

Dock on lake was amazing. Had a place for snacks / ice cream, fun looking floating jungle gym, tons of rentals. The only down side was it seemed like it was ran by kids and I wouldn’t feel confident with a pre-auth. being released promptly or correctly. We just left our ID and got it back at the end so avoided any pre-auth. Would go back / rent again.

My family and friends have been long time visitors of Sunshine Houseboats and Marina. We go there for gas for the boat, ice cream, or a snack at the cantina. We have been to the water park many times. Always have been impressed with the friendly service. The other day we had a group of friends and family with us camping nearby. Seven kids and 8 adults. We booked 2 sea-doos from 11am until 2pm and the water park from 2:30 until 5:30. Coordinating our “gang” to be at the right place at the right time was a task to say the least! The pickup and drop off of the sea-doos was seamless and the kids were in the water at the park right on schedule at 2:30. Everything went perfect and Sunshine Marina had a major part to play in the memories we made! I highly recommend paying them a visit!
