Laurinda Kalawarny purchased this house in 2007

Why Laurinda Kalawarny chose South Pandosy

My family came to the Okanagan in 1911, and I enjoy hearing and seeing the history the Okanagan has to offer from the lake freezing over in 1952, the Orchards, the smells of the lake and the cherry blossoms and knowing that our family land is know an aspiring vineyard in the North Okanagan, the love and memories the Okanagan Valley has given to myself and family is endless

What makes this house unique

We chose this home for it's great location, knowing we where wanting to open a Bed and Breakfast, it was the perfect home, and now opening the house as a full Vacation Rental. As we drive through the gates the serenity of our home and the quietness of the back yard, and being across from an exciting popular Beach, boat rentals, shopping, we new this was the place that people could call home and have a great vacation, close to everything.

Grandparents plus three children and their families from three continents including 6 grandchildren, got together to celebrate a 50th anniversary. House was well equipped and perfect for sleeping and meals. Hosts were pleasant and accommodating. Location, with a park across the road including a beach, was great entertainment. We would recommend this location highly.

  • 5 of 5

I had my best friends stagette at this house and it turned out to be a really fantastic time. Thanks to the owner who helped us with accommodations and reservations for wine tours, night clubs etc. Also for making sure we all had a fun and safe weekend. The house had a resort feel and is super clean.

great location and HUGE house

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location walking distance to two of Kelowas best beaches.

Huge house good for large groups or multiple families.

Operates as a BB when not rented out so a bit awkward at times (or unusual I should say) but I guess this is the new normal in BC, with lows limiting VRBO/Air BnB rentals.

Nice family that owns it, and well maintained property. Would stay again for sure.

Owner's Response: Hi Dana Thank you for the review...just for clarity on our business...we do Vacation Rental - for family get togethers, stags, stagette, team (sports, business) snow tours, everything imaginable... We do B&B when it's slow and we do not have any Vacation renters (the whole house) B&B are NOT in the house at the same time as people renting the whole house. B&B is what it is, bed and breakfast which we provide and rooms only are rented out. I wanted to make this clear for anyone thinking that B&B is at the same time as someone renting the whole house, which it is not. Thank you again for your great review..and love to have you and your group stay again.

Beautiful, luxury, relaxed, warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough wonderful things about this place! Laurinda and Darren are such kind and welcoming hosts! It isn't easy to find hosts that will say yes to allowing us host out big indian wedding events at their property, but Darren and Laurinda went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and satisfied with our stay. We had the place for 1 week, and 4 of those nights we had an event in the backyard where they graciously let us put up large tents, dance floor, chairs and seating. We even were allowed onsite catering. Being here we had no worries, my family and guests were all so comfortable here, especially when all 85 of us were from out of town! (No not 85 people stayed at the house). We shut down the music by 10pm every night at the latest to ensure our neighbors were happy, and simply can not say enough great things about Darren and Laurinda as well. The house is magnificent, if you think the pictures look good, wait until you are in the house, it is even more magical. The hosts love their home and you can tell by the detail and attention to every aspect of their property. I personally couldn't have asked for a better place to have my wedding events, and am so thankful to have found this home and Laurinda and Darren. Thank-you so much.

Great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Boyce Gyro Beach by the Lake for 4 nights with a group of 15 women.

There was plenty of room to sleep. The bedrooms were great.

The house was very clean. Yard was kept immaculate by the owner. Backyard was very private with lots of seating for everyone.

Hot tub had fresh water in it when we got there.

Handy to shopping, and places to eat

I would recommend this home for any large group. Would rent it again!!

Family Members' Home Base for Wedding - Central Location - Quality Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This property has two key advantages - one more bathroom than the other places with the same number of bedrooms and its central location. It supported my parents, my brother and his family, and friends, totaling 12 people. We were close to everything, including the wedding location.

I suggest two improvements to help guests sleep better. (1) The dishwasher was beeping at night and the beeping disturbed some of our slumbers. Please teach guests how to turn off the dishwasher beeper or disable the beeper during rental period. (2) The air conditioner was programmed turn off at night during our stay in the last week of July when the temperature was in the 90's Fahrenheit. We were too hot in the middle of the night which made sleep difficult. Perhaps instead of shutting the ac completely off at night during the hottest weeks, perhaps it could still run a little longer than usual by a few more hours.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response, the dishwasher beeps when it has finished, it can be annoying however there is no way to turn it off, turn it on right after your dinner and you won't be disturb by the beeping or in the morning before you go out. The AC is automatic, once it turns to the right temp. it turns off and keeps it at the same temp. all day. The one thing we tell all our guests, keep windows and doors closed and all blinds and drapes shut during the heat of the day, once the house gets to hot the AC can not keep up.
