                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: Dave & I have lived in Kelowna all of our married life(41yr) Dave, a born and raised Kelownian, formerly a Phys Ed teacher/counsellor and entrepreneur keeps busy golfing, helping out family and friends & playing hockey (its no secret he lives to play hockey). Myself, formerly a primary teacher, enjoys gardening, golfing, decorating & spending time with family & friends. We have three wonderful grown children and two beautiful grandchildren. Together we love to travel, get together with family & friends, cheer on our WHL Kelowna Rockets and of course spend time at 'the lake'. We love living in the Okanagan & take great pride in our 'lakehouse' We hope that you will stay with us and enjoy all that Blue Grouse Bay & the Okanagan has to offer. Like many of our guests you'll want to keep coming back year after year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kelowna:
                  We chose this two acre lakeshore property over twenty years ago because we wanted our children to enjoy all the wonderful experiences that come with growing up on the water. Its hard to put into words but there is something magical about the combination of children, the lake and an Okanagan summer. We loved the peaceful lakeshore setting and the close proximity to downtown. It has been a labour of love and hard work getting the property to what it is today. We built the house in 2001 and have been renting to guests since 2003. We love our lake house and enjoy sharing it with our guests, many who come back year after year.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The benefits of our rental property is the beautiful private setting with a 180 degree view of the lake and the mountains. It's like staying at your very own resort. Because we have another residence and keep the main floor of the house strictly for our own use, you never need to worry about sharing the property with other renters. The suite is very bright and tastefully decorated, It is the lower level of the house which has its own private entrance and all the comforts of home. There is boat moorage for one boat which makes it perfect for those guests wanting to bring their own boat or wishing to rent a boat during their stay.
