Owner info

About the owner: We came to Canada from New Zealand in 1975 and only intended to stay 2 years, but fell in love with the Okanagan. We have seen many changes from the valley being predominantly fruit to now, a large well established wine region. We have travelled extensively and enjoy the company of our guests. Russell has a passion for photography and Christine is an avid gardener.

Why the Owner Chose Oliver, BC, Canada:
It has an ideal aspect, catching the early morning sunrise, and plenty of shade in the hot afternoons. It was our summer kitchen when we had our family, but now that they are all grown, we wanted to repurpose the space downstairs as another home away from home for visitors to the wine capital of Canada

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This fully self-contained suite with private spa, BBQ and patio area, is a vacationers delight. Complimentary bikes to enjoy the many trails in the valley. Beautiful private gardens to relax and enjoy the quail. Only ten minutes walk to town, and 10 to the local tennis courts and public swimming pool. Tuc El Nuit Lake provides non motorized water sports, only a 5 minute drive away.
