About Christine Work

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 Christine Work chose Oliver

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

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

At the last minute we found this wonderful B&B with loveliest people. We've enjoyed every minute of the great atmosphere and hospitality. We're looking forward for next time we'll come over.

Return visit just as wonderful as the inital!

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad to get to stay at this property again on our second trip to Oliver, BC. Russell and Chris are excellent hosts; the suite has everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation. The location is perfect for discovering the area and we always looked forward to returning "home" after our daily excursions. We highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect home base to enjoy OIiver

  • 5 of 5

Russell and Christine's place is a wonderful home base to enjoy Oliver. They have done an excellent job of making the suite comfortable with all the amenities you need, and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We were missing a paddle for our paddleboard and Russell arranged for us to borrow one for our stay! The outdoor space, backyard, bicycles and hot tub are really the icing on the cake. We had a great time here and would recommend this place to anyone that wants to enjoy the wineries and lakes of Oliver.

Beautiful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing environment then you must see Russell and Christine.

Once we arrived we were greeted by the most hospitable hosts, they were very helpful with information we needed to tour the area of Oliver. Beautiful spot to visit, we just wish we could've stayed longer. You will not be disappointed if you book with Absolutely Suite. It has everything you could possibly ever need or want.

We definitely would return!

Thank you again Russell and Christine
