Cherie, is amazing. She makes you feel right at home. Cherie was able to help with suggestions on places to eat or see, she had it all. Breakfast was simple but perfect. This airbnb is the equivalent of staying with your favourite relative.
A lovely home with a warm welcome and good chat about life over coffee in the back yard. Inspiring!
I loved the house and Cherie is so genuine and warm. I will definitely be back. Thanks for letting me bring my 4 legged friend too.. :)
Good central location.
Cheri made sure she was home and went through how everything worked and gave has advice on dinner, wineries to tour etc.
Cherie is a wonderful host. She has a beautiful house, the rooms are clean and nice decorated. She offered us self made lemon water and we also could use some things (jam, cookies, cereals) for breakfast. Cherie recommended a really nice winery to visit, it was great :) when we left she said we can pick some lavender from her garden. Great place to stay.
It was so nice to stay at Cherie's home.She was vey welcoming, helpful and very laid-back. Her home is pretty nice and we especially liked her beautiful backyard. Kelowna is a great place to visit, the neighbourhood was quiet and at the same time close to the water, downtown and the mountain. Perfect. We would recommend to stay at Cherie's place.
Cherie was friendly and accommodating and it was a very pretty and clean house. It has been a really pleasant stay for us.

About the Host, Cherie
Once an English teacher now I am an artist, writer and tutor. Those who stay in my house described it as a retreat and a healing place. The house is pet free and quiet. Buddhist studies have been a focus in my life for several years.
I hold three university degrees and have begun work on a fourth. My interests are in all aspects of creative expression, politics, urban culture and personal development. I have been to London, Paris, Barcelona, Florence, Rome and up the Amazon in Peru.
Most of my time is spent creating art or poetry. I do various poetry performances around Kelowna. If you are interested in learning about the culture scene in Kelowna, come stay with me.
I am fascinated by contemporary culture and love meeting people from around the world.
