We spent a great week here. The studio looks exactly as it does in the pictures, and everything about it was perfect. It's located in a quiet part of Penticton, but is very close to town and the highway by car. The suite is elegantly decorated; the bed is big and comfortable, and the kitchen was more than adequate for the amount of cooking we did. We enjoyed lounging around indoors and out on the private deck. Charlene and Norm were excellent hosts: friendly, attentive, and, of course, knowledgeable about the area. We appreciated the fresh peaches from their tree and the chocolate chip cookies from their oven! And Jack, their Labradoodle, always made us smile. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. Book it now -- you won't regret it!
We had a wonderful stay in Charlene & Norm's private suite. It was incredibly calm, clean, convenient and comfortable! We appreciate all the attention to detail that went into making the space so special. Thank you for a great stay, we hope to come visit again!

The Smears home is a very welcoming place. Norm and Jack, the very loving Labradoodle, were both there to greet us. We had the grand tour, including our wonderful private suite away from the main house, and the grounds of their property. Very nice and very accommodating.
We loved our stay at the Smears guesthouse. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable to stay in. Clean, cool, romantic - it offered us everything we needed. The private deck was perfect for sipping coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening, not to mention small propane barbecue for grilling up lunch and dinner. Thanks for making our stay in the Okanagan so great!
Our host was very helpful and we received a warm welcome to her lovely home. The accommodation was beautiful, spacious and a great place to relax and recoup from a busy family visit. It was a very quite area, a comfortable bed and sleeping was a dream! There was a small kitchen area and BBQ for us to use which would be great for longer stay with Charlene. We would definitely return and hopefully next time we'd have more time to enjoy the surrounding grounds. Can't say enough good about Charlene's getaway, it surely worked for us!
Charlene and Norm and Jack (their dog) extended a very warm welcome upon arrival. The studio is absolutely as described, very lovely and an awesome patio for quiet solitude while enjoying our wine. Our hosts gave us privacy, yet were available if needed. The fresh raspberries they shared from their own garden were delicious! This being our first experience with AirBNB, we are SOLD on using this service in the future.
My boyfriend and I had a quick trip to Penticton and stayed here for two nights. This suite was absolutely gorgeous, exactly as the pictures show. Charlene and her husband were very welcoming and friendly. I would love to stay here again if I had the opportunity.
