About Jodie Graham

I'm from Vancouver & my wife is from Denmark. We live, work and raise our two wonderful children in the Main Street / Mt. Pleasant area of Vancouver.

Jodie Graham purchased this house in 2012

Why Jodie Graham chose Naramata

After 7 years of searching in the Okanagan, Whistler, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island for a second home where we could decompress, rejuvenate and make life-long family memories, we stumbled across Naramata Village. The minute we drove into this little lakeside community, we knew this was the sanctuary we had been searching for. Shortly thereafter, this lovely home appeared... and the rest is history!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this particular home- not for any one reason (other than it's in The Village) but for the entire property as a whole. As soon as we walked through the front gate we were greeted by a gorgeous cherry tree that was loaded with ripe cherries (it took us a while to get inside, they were so amazing). At the same time, both our children ran to the play structure and started climbing, swinging and sliding (they had no interest in going inside). Once we made our way through the front door and into the open living/dining/kitchen area, we knew we had found our vacation home. We love that there are three bedrooms on the main level with two bathrooms (one being a master ensuite) and the other having a deep soaker tub. With 2 bedrooms and another bathroom downstairs, we decided to make one room a guest-room to accommodate couples and the other into a bunk-room. The added bonus downstairs is the large rec room where everyone can hang out and watch a movie on Netflix or have a foosball tournament.

Excellent, well-appointed rental home

  • 5 of 5

The best part about renting a vacation home is when the surprises are only good ones! Jodie provided a very clean, well-equipped home that was very comfortable for our stay. The kitchen had many extras, the beds were comfy and warm, and the electronics were easy to use. We would definitely rent this same unit in the future.

Great stay with the family pre- & post-wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage with both sets of parents in lead up to our wedding on Naramata, as well as to unwind for a couple days after the event. It was very spacious and well located in a quiet part of town. We had great weather and enjoyed spending our time on the back porch, but were happy to escape the heat at times in the cool air conditioned home. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

Delightful with a splash of charm

  • 5 of 5

The Family Cottage was our home for 4 days, and it was exactly that, "home away from home". The location set the stage and the home completed our experience. The home is very clean and well equipped with everything a family (with younger to older kids) to groups of friends/family will need.

I would recommend "the Family Cottage" to everyone.

Thank you Jodie for sharing your wonderful home to my friend and I.

A perfect stay for our group of 6

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 women visiting Naramata for some wine touring. The house is very spacious and welcoming with everything you need. After a day of touring it was so nice to sit out on the deck and enjoy the evening. The kitchen has everything you need for making meals. Our only suggestion would be that the master ensuite could do with a remodel and the landscaping is getting a little overgrown but that aside, it was a perfect stay for all of us and we were already talking about coming back next year.
