Our lovely room offers a private bath, hardwood floors, a comfy bed and a great location in downtown Kelowna.
Our nearly-new downtown Kelowna home is quite lovely. Your room is on the main floor, which features hardwood floors throughout and tasteful art.

Interaction with Guests
We work from home in our offices on the second floor. We enjoy chatting with guests when we're not working to deadlines and we're always happy to make recommendations for restaurants and our favorite activities. We have books to loan on wine touring and hiking trails.
The neighbourhood is friendly and quiet with a mix of families and seniors. We know most of our neighbours. It is great to be able to walk downtown to the lake, theatres and restaurants
There is a bike path two blocks away on which you can ride downtown and along the lake, all the way to the south end of the city. We also enjoy Knox Mountain, which has great hiking trails and National Geographic views. Knox is a six minute car ride away or a 15 minute bike ride.
There is a bus stop two blocks away, and as mentioned you can easily walk downtown, to a Starbucks, and to two grocery stores.
Other Things to Note
Kelowna is a wonderful place to visit, and to live. We moved here seven years ago from the Toronto area and just love the beauty of nature and the ease of connecting with nature here. We also love that Kelowna has great restaurants and the best shopping in the Southern Interior of B.C.
We appreciate quiet guests with moderate drinking habits, who are in by 11:00 p.m.. No drinking in the house please. Non-smokers only. No entertaining in your room or in other parts of our home.
We take our shoes off at the door.
You may use the kitchen to prepare a simple breakfast or lunch, using your own ingredients. Please do your dishes and leave everything as you find it.
Free street parking.
JoAnne communicated via e mail and then by phone with us so we easily arranged getting checked in and showing us the great features of her home.
This was my first experience with Airbab and it surpassed my expectations. Joanne was a gracious host. I was looking for a relaxed "home" feel as I searched for real estate in the area as I am planning a move to Kelowna. Joanne answered lots of questions I had about rental properties which was a bonus but I also found we shared things about our own lives. Even though I was in Kelowna on my own I never felt lonely because returning to the house I always had the love of two special dogs...Biscuit and Kenya and I was always greeted warmly by Joanne. As far as the accommodation went the bed was extremely comfie, great sheets and pillows were a real plus and a private bathroom allowed for my privacy. I used the kitchen for small meals and the living space was easily shared. As far as the location goes it is right downtown. I road my bike everywhere and the waterfront was about a 5 min bike ride. This is a great location and an outstanding value when travelling alone as I used the main floor bedroom. FIVE STARS FOR SURE!!
Excellent host, accommodation, and location. Paddy was out of town so I was sharing the house with Paddy's partner Joanne and their two wonderful dogs. Joanne was extremely accommodating, friendly, and we had terrific conversations about human behavior, thought patterns, meditation, and other deep subjects. Would love to stay here again.
The accomodations were exactly as posted. The location is fabulous. 10 minute walk to downtown and the waterfront. Very close to public transportation. The host was fantastic. She was helpful and knowledgeable about the area. I will definitley be staying here again. This place is a 10/10. A real gem!
We had a lovely stay with JoAnne, Kenya and Biscuit! They were such warm and welcoming hosts. JoAnne was so accommodating and such a pleasure to chat to. The room was warm, bright and spacious. The bed was very comfy and warm. I loved the bathroom of which we were the only users. All in all we had such a lovely stay in the lovely room and they couldn't have made us feel any more welcome. Thank you!
Staying with this Host, I felt more like a long-time roommate than a guest. Paddy/Joanne's home have two of the greatest dogs. They are such entertainers. Their home is located in a quaint residential area. The decor is so inviting and artistic. It creates an atmosphere of warmth and openness. The in-depth conversations we had are ones that will live with me from now on. Very knowledgeable about the area and its history. I wouldn't change a thing and would do it all over again.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Paddy's home. she was a warm welcoming host sensitive to my needs for down time and privacy. She was very generous in sharing information about Kelowna .
I would definitely return to this listing.
