Situated in quiet residential neighbourhood this bright & spacious guest room has a Queen bed, large closet, dresser & seating area with large windows onto the garden. Guests have private bathroom with walk-in shower. Separate access. Wifi. Fridge
Semi-private guest suite (1400sq ft) with separate entrance, private guest bathroom and 2 bedrooms. Our listing accommodates up to 4 adults in 2 bedrooms. Guests have the use of the sitting room with TV and Netflix, a fridge, kettle and hot tub and outdoor seating on a private patio area.
Our home is a walkout rancher style. Guests will have full access to the basement area of our home. This includes the guest bedrooms, bathroom and large sitting room / TV area / gym area (and for the most part this area is your private suite - we will occasionally come down to access the garden/gym or storage). Guest access is via a separate door direct to the basement level (accessible from a sloped walkway at the side of the house) so you can come and go as you please. The hot-tub is next to the basement door which also gives access to the garden and a private patio area for guests.
There is a kettle and fridge in the room, and we keep it supplied with tea, coffee and milk/cream. Unfortunately there are no facilities for cooking.
Interaction with Guests
We live mostly upstairs! But our home gym, hot tub and some storage is downstairs in the basement so we will be popping down from time to time!. (Note: Hot Tub is seasonal - usually running from October through June.)
We have an enthusiastically friendly Vizsla dog. She's 3 and will want to be your best friend. We have a baby gate which we keep on the stairs so she won't come down to your area (unless you want her to!). She has (obviously) been throughout the house so if you're allergic this may not be the place for you.
We are in a quiet residential neighbourhood on a newer development.
We are within a few minutes drive of several of Lake Country's 5 wineries (in fact you could walk to one of them in about 20 minutes if you don't mind a bit of an uphill hike on the return!)
We have over 20km of gorgeous marked hiking trails accessible from from our front door on Spion Kop - an area of Crown land with trails maintained by the WALC (Walk Around Lake Country) society. There is a connector trail from the neighbourhood down to Wood Lake (approx 1km from our house) and Pelmewash Parkway (which was the old highway and is now a multi-use recreation corridor). Both Lake Okanagan and Kalamalka Lake & beaches are less than a 5 minute drive away.
There are also lots of fabulous restaurants and wineries in Lake Country - Routes Grill, Ricardos Italian, The Greek House and Gray Monk winery to name but a few.
The nearest bus-stop is within sight of the house! - just a minute away. From there you can take a bus to Lake Country & UBCO with connections on to either downtown Kelowna or Vernon.
We are a 15 minute drive from Kelowna International Airport.
We do recommend a car if staying with us to really make the most of your stay in the area.
Other Things to Note
Our main listing is for a large queen bed-room, accommodating 2 guests.
We do have a second guest room with a king bed for up to 2 additional people, sharing the same bathroom. The second bedroom is a little more sparsely decorated and has a closet and bed-side tables but no additional storage. We will only rent out this second room to members of the same group so you will only ever share the bathroom with friends!
The cost for use of the second bedroom is $50 for the room, regardless of whether there are 1 or 2 people occupying it. Please let us know when there are more than 2 people in your group and we can send a special offer price for the second room. The additional fee of $50 is per room NOT per person.
We can do laundry & dryer loads for $5 per load (inc. washing detergent)
No Smoking household. Please leave outdoor shoes at the door - no shoes indoors please!
Helen and Chris's home was exactly what we were looking for. Clean and comfortable and yes it was large and spacious. Great location as well. This being our first time to Lake Country region we were not sure if we were in the right area for visiting winery's - it was perfect! And beautiful country as well. Helen and Chris gave excellent restaurant recommendations and we thank them for that. .. the Italian restaurant in Winfield was exceptional. We stayed twice with them...on our way to Vancouver and back, we would recommend staying with them. The bed was comfortable and again very spacious and clean. They also provide some little extras incase you forget anything while travelling, a nice touch (toiletries and such). Having a mini fridge and coffee provided in the room was wonderful for the early mornings. Beautiful morning sunrise views. .. quiet neighborhood as well. Thank you again Helen and Chris. ... very nice stay in Lake Country!
Helen & Chris made us feel very welcome, gave us excellent guidance on the locality and explained clearly all information relating to the accommodation. The room was exactly as posted, very comfortable, clean and contemporary. Although the sitting area is shared use with Helen & Chris, the whole basement in fact felt very private. The use of the hot tub was a real bonus, as was the availability of netflix on the TV in the lounge via Apple TV. WiFi reception was very good. The house is located very centrally in Lake Country, allowing excellent access for skiing, lake based water sports, hiking and sightseeing the outstanding scenery. We would very definitely stay with Helen & Chris again if visiting Lake Country.
We stayed 2 nights and it was perfect for us. Helen and Chris were friendly hosts and gave us some great restaurant suggestions in the area. The hot tub was an added bonus and served us well after a day of skiing at Silverstar (only a 45 min. drive away).
Thanks Helen and Chris!
Staying with Helen and Chris was amazing, they were very accommodating and asked if we needed anything and they gave us all the privacy we needed! Also they made is delicious brownies for my girlfriend's birthday ( which was very sweet!!) that we happily devoured the next day :) it was a lovely place and we can't wait to come back in the future! They were very accommodating of our funny schedule; thank you Helen & Chris!!
It is a brand new, clean and tidy, and spacious room, in elegant apricot and blue. The very clean bathroom and thoughtful cleaning set make the experience here even nicer.
It was really a lovely, clean room and bathroom just as it is described. Had a separate entrance for privacy. I would surely recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Thank you so much Helen and Chris. :-)
We are originally from England. We emigrated to Canada 5 years ago and have called the Okanagan home ever since! We're in our 40/50's and have an overly friendly and energetic Vizsla pup!
