Farmhouse, 4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom
Check in time is 4 pm and checkout time is 10 am. This is a charming farmhouse fully equipped to move in. It has a separate dining room, large living room with cable tv, wifi and blu ray player. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 bedrooms up. Both bathrooms are located on the main floor. All bedrooms have a queen size beds. The house will work well for up to 8 people. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking meals and dishes are provided. The deck is large and has a gazebo to save you from the hot sun while allowing you to enjoy the breeze and relax outside. There is a washer and dryer downstairs in the home.
Our property has many fruit trees, fruit bushes etc and when we have enough, we will make them available to you. We do ask that you don't let your children pick fruit and throw it, nor have anyone pick without checking with us first (we had a tenant pick every piece off every tree one year). Please don't climb the fruit trees as it damages them. We are a working farm and are grateful if you can make sure that all of your guests treat our property well.
We are a WWOOF host family. That is World Wide Organization of Organic Farmers. Young people from around the world come and volunteer their time on the farm to learn about Canada and farming. It is always interesting to talk to the young people who travel here. The property has several fruit trees and we are surrounded by orchards. We have recently planted 4 acres of blueberry bushes on our lower field and strawberries and raspberries as well. We have 2 dogs and 3 cats and are very pet friendly. We can give you great directions for a nice walk in the area or even a hike for the more physically inclined.
In a separate and fully self-contained suite located below we have a full-time tenant with a young child who is quiet and respectful of the visitors upstairs and we appreciate it if others leave her space calm for her. You will have exclusive access to the vacation rental, your own deck and green space and will not have to share it with anyone.
This is a fantastic home to enjoy family visits and reunions, nature time, days spent on nearby beaches and peace and quiet in a rural setting. It is NOT a home for loud and boisterous late night party crowds. We try to maintain quiet time from 10 pm- 8 am. Families traveling with children need to be aware that there is a downstairs tenant and sometimes kids are pretty loud. We thank you for your consideration.

About Carmen Johnston
Hi, My name is Brett and I live in a separate house on the property with my wife Carmen. We have a home based business selling kitchen cabinets and also grow 4 acres of blueberries, large plots with strawberries and raspberries in addition to having a large organic vegetable garden in the summer. I have travelled extensively and I love the Okanagan. Carmen used to be an LPN and now works on the farm with me. She loves dogs and works hard to keep the rental up to date with everything you could need on your vacation. With easy access to lakes, golf courses, ski hills and wineries it is truly a great place to live.
Carmen Johnston purchased this Farmhouse in 2004
Why Carmen Johnston chose Central Okanagan
Come and enjoy the freedom of farm life and the peace and quiet it offers you. The house itself is inviting and homey. Both of us spent our teenage years in the Okanagan so for us it felt like coming home when we had the chance to purchase the property. The vacation rental is home to many of Carmen's mother and grandmothers treasured items which you will see in the china cabinet. Unfortunately, our home is made of too many windows to have them here, so we trust that you will look after them with care while you are here.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Ample parking, quiet rural location. The deck is fantastic to enjoy bbq's and sunny afternoons. The arched doorways in the home are lovely and the wooden floor is original and shows the character of the home. We love the antique glass door knobs on the old wooden doors. The beds are so comfortable you will want to stay in them and read your book through the mornings. It isn't often that families can go somewhere peaceful anymore with most hotels and apartments having lots of noise from neighbours so we hope that you will make the most of it and enjoy the quiet life that we enjoy daily! Being only a 15 minute drive to the beach is pretty spectacular also!

A great house, perfect for pets and easy access to downtown. A lovely family weekend in Kelowna. Very close to the highway, but remarkably quiet, and easy to get find. A fenced yard for the dogs, great deck and a lovely place for a weekend.
Great Stay, Friendly and Helpful Owner
Our four night stay at the farmhouse was very pleasant. A great home away from home. All amenities were close by, grocery stores, restaurants, liquor outlets, etc. Carmen sold us a dozen, fresh, farm eggs and shared some of her garden produce.
Great place for families and of course dogs!
We enjoyed our stay and had lots of space for our family. Very comfy beds and everything else that we needed.

It was a pleasure having your group here! Thanks for staying in our farmhouse!
My son & family stayed here for a family reunion that was held on the Johnston property.
He has 7 children and there was plenty of room for all. Lots of space outside for play as well as children's swing & climbing apparatus. They flew into the Kelowna Airport and it was a 5 minute drive to the farm.
Great Place, Great Price
The house is lovely as is the owner who lives in another house nearby. An active berry farm. I'd happily stay there again. Very convenient to airport also.
Five guys on a golfing trip; one mile to the Okanagan Golf Course. Very quiet, very friendly hosts. No problems whatsoever. Fantastic time!
Great location to stay with your family. We are Pet Friendly. House has a penned area if your dog tends to roam. Located among brilliant orchards and gardens.
We are close to everything but far enough away to feel like you are out in the country. With numerous world class beaches, swimming and boating only a short distance from here you are sure to enjoy your vacation. Only 5 minutes to Kelowna Airport or Quail Golf Course. 15 minute drive to Okanagan or Kalamalka Lake or Woods Lake to enjoy swimming and beaches. 10 Minutes to Hwy 33 and access to Big White Ski Hill.
This will be a vacation with fantastic memories for you and your family. Let us know your wishes and we will make every effort to accommodate your requests. We are looking forward to having you enjoy your stay on our acreage.
