About This Listing
Our home is best described as a comfortable cedar cottage in Kelowna's lower mission close to yoga studios, the H2O Centre and beaches. There are two bedrooms (one queen bed and two bunks) on the main floor alongside one bathroom (full stand up shower), a living room and lovely cottage kitchen with nook. There is a sunroom at the main entry level with patio doors leading out to an open eating area. The basement is complete with a kids bathroom (with bathtub) and playroom.
Guests should expect a quiet home surrounded with cedar and douglas fir trees; our home has a country feel located the city. Located minutes from the H2O aquatic center, the Sunshine Market and several beaches (including boat launch at Hotel Eldorado) - our home is awesome for couples or families wanting to unwind in a relaxed area of town; it is very private and safe. We are approximately a 15 minute drive to the heart of downtown.
Within a 10 minute drive of the Okanagan's best wineries (Cedar Creek and Summerhill) as well as to SOPA (South Pandosy) area of town, which hosts dining such as Indian, Thai, sushi, and ice cream shops not far from our home. There is a city bus stop within half a block from our front door.
Our home is truly unique and special; it is very comfortable and casual.

This is a quiet family environment, suitable for a couple with children or couples wishing to see the wineries etc. No smoking inside the home. We would like for you to take care of our two cats (Whiskers and Ella), which would include feeding and to let them outside in the morning and inside at bedtime. Your secuity fee will be fully refunded if everything is clean and in order. You may come and go as you wish with parking large enough for a boat and trailer. Please put the garbage and recycling in bins. Enjoy your stay and let our home offer you a lot of family experiences.
Kelly was wonderful. She was prompt in her responses to our inquiries and accommodating for our specific needs. The place was clean, spacious, comfy, with an overall "homie" feel to it. We had a great time enjoying the bonfire in the backyard. The cats were adorable and great company. The neighbourhood was great as well. It had grocery stores, liquor stores, and wineries around the corner, and was a very short drive to the heart of Kelowna. Overall, this was exactly what we wanted; a fantastic vacation experience. Thank you very much!
Kelly is very responsive to my inquiries via emails. The kitchen is well equipped and the location of the house is close to the lake and to the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park.
We loved the atmosphere- their home is definitely full of joy and positivity. We loved the outside area where we could relax in the evening and the board games, we had a great time playing checkers. This listing would definitely be great for people with young children as it was such a family friendly space. We had great instructions from Kelly and there was a note with all the appropriate information on when we arrived. The property was outside of Kelowna centre but this was perfect for what we wanted and we could easily drive into the centre. The neighborhood was quite and safe.
The house was beautiful and well restored. There was more than enough space for the four of us. We all slept downstairs to avoid the summer heat. Although the home lacks air conditioning it is a beautiful location only minutes away from a market and a short drive from the beach. Kelly and mike were very helpful and accommodating.
We had a great stay at kelly and mike's place! The cats were no bother and the house had everything we needed, with a very cute outdoor area out the back. The only downside was that kelowna was extremely hot at the time, so the fans were put to full use! Would definitely stay here again, thanks for having us!
This house is really amazing! We spent two really good days in Kelowna. The three cats are awesome and the house is big enough for 4 people or even more. The only problem was the heat in the main floor. The solution is easy, downstairs the temperaturae is much better. We totally recommend it!
About the Host, Kelly
Hello, we are from Kelowna and live in the loveliest area of town, the mission. Being very environmentally minded we bought an older home that needed some TLC and kept the old cottage charm that it once had. We live very simply (without TV or air conditioning) etc. therefore our home is relaxing yet kid friendly; we have two kids (7 & 5) and we have a great family life; my husband is a high school teacher and I am a yoga teacher - we can't live without good music, great discussion, travelling to the coast, eating great food and being in nature. Life is what you make it and we make it pretty great! Have fun, relax, breathe.
