This cottage has is all. It's nestled in the old part of Kelowna within footsteps to the lake and minutes to restaurants, shopping mall and so on. Charming, clean, quiet, spacious. We can recommend this for sure.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little property! I would like to say the pictures are an accurate representation of the property, but they don't do it justice! What a perfect home for a getaway. The pool was by far the biggest hit with our whole family and we spent several hours each day in it. The front of the house is gorgeous and we managed to take some stunning family photos with the great background. The house itself has everything you would need. The kids LOVED the top floor loft with play area.

The beach around the corner was closed because of clean up from the floods but we were minutes away from half a dozen other beaches all with sandy beaches, playgrounds and completely family friendly.

Moo-lix was a big hit for the kids and a short walk from the property if you fancy a tasty ice cream!

The owner, Dina, was so sweet and even had a jar of lollipops for the kids upon arrival and chips,salsa and a bottle of wine for me and my husband!!

Great owner and great property! I highly recommend!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our time in Kelowna staying in this wonderful house! It was exactly as shown in the photos. The pool and outdoor living area was fabulous and the indoor space was clean and well furnished. The kids especially loved the loft area. Dina met us upon arrival and went over everything and was available by text if we had any concerns. The house is also just a short walk to the beach and downtown restaurants - an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly how the ad presents, clean, great use of space and a wonderful retreat for our family. Dina went above and beyond during our stay leaving us a welcome treat, meeting at the house to go through things and answers any questions. She was also prompt when there were any questions that we texted her throughout our stay. We will be back without any hesitations. Few tips- walk down to Bernard St. area and enjoy the local shops and an ice cream at Moo-Lix. We loved the beer and pizza at the Tree Brewery in the area. We rented SUP from MEC for a day to enjoy them on the beach. You can walk to the City Park and beach down there or just head out your door to the beach. Thank you Dina for sharing this lovely home with our family!

This is the third year in a row we have stayed in this little cottage. It is very cozy and beautifully decorated. We enjoy the pool and the location, walking distance to town and steps from the lake. Dina is always available if we need anything. This is a girls getaway and we consider this our Home away from Home! We love it!

Our stay at Vimy Cottage was very comfortable. We were welcomed with seasonal decorations (Christmas) which gave it a cozy feel and we felt right at home. The house was very clean, beautifully furnished and fully equipped! The location is excellent - steps from the lake and a comfortable walk to downtown. The owner was very helpful and informative - excellent customer service! We will definitely recommend this property.
