Why The Owner chose Thompson Okanagan

Why this property .Well the location it is centrally located.

Our house was built in 1922 so it is has been a love of work to restore it. The lot was large so we could build the guest house and put in beautiful Gardens because we both love gardening. That is where the name "Hemose luger" comes in it means beautiful house

lovely guest house built with excellent craftsmanship. The mature garden with outdoor patio is private and relaxing. This place is equipped with everything you need. Short walk to downtown and waterfront. Pat and Lora are great hosts!

Good location, not the best service

  • 2 of 5

I stayed here over the August long weekend with my husband and sister. Arrival was ok, though the property wasn't ready when we arrived. We did arrive a bit early, but after the scheduled check in time and were disappointed to find it wasn't ready. The cottage is well stocked but would have done with some nice touches like sugar, liquid soap etc. The upstairs bedroom in the loft is VERY hot and only a small fan to try cool it down. My sister had to sleep on the sleeper couch in the lounge at night because of the heat in the loft.

Upon check out, Lora deducted $20 from our damage deposit for having used extra linens, not cleaning the BBQ or the stove top (we only used the BBQ once and same with the stove). I find this extremely unsatisfying as nothing was actually damaged and the rest of the property was left in immaculate condition. Not a pleasant way to end a vacation.

The outdoor "private" space is reasonable, but Lora's son was always walking past and there is also a wasp issue which was unpleasant to deal with.

I found Lora bit difficult to deal with and won't be staying at this property again in my next visit to Penticton. Overall, fair, but really only giving it that because of location

Owner's Response: Hi Priscilia, Sorry to hear your stay was not a happy one. It appeared that your stay was fine until you left and I charged you the extra cleaning fee.There are 2 air conditioners in the guest house plus ceiling fans and a stand up fan for the upstairs loft. Our other guests have not found the heat in the upstairs loft to be a problem. If it was a problem perhaps you should have talked to me about it and I would have helped you with the problem. Check in was at the approved time set up by you for 3:00pm. It was not my fault you choose to be early(2:30). About the $20.00 dollar charge- On my site it states the price of $170.00 per night, based on double occupancy and a $10.00 charge per extra person over 12 years of age. Perhaps this was an oversight on your part. Your total should have been $180.00 per night instead of $170.00, saving you $30.00 and more because your service fee would have been more. However, I was kind enough to let it go. On the laminated sheet in the guest house, on the centre island, I showed you and told you that at check out, it states, please clean up after your self or there will be an extra cleaning fee. I was friendly and helpful as it constantly states in my reviews, so why would I have treated you any different than hundreds of other customers that have spent time in our guest house? You were my guest and you were treated accordingly. However, for future stays I would recommend that you follow the rules of the house and leave it in the same condition and if there is an issue try and to communicate the problem to the host, so there is no problem(s). You saved money on the room cost and service fees and you are complaining because you did not take responsibility for your clean up and you used an extra bed, which takes time for my cleaning person. Time is money so it cost you $20.00. We hope you have a great summer. Thank you for your feedback and staying with us at Latimer Guest House. Kind regards, Lora and Patrick Corbett

Very nice place, felt like at home!

  • 5 of 5

My niece and I stayed 2 nights and were very happy to have discovered this place. We walked to the beach, to restaurants, to do some shopping and it was perfect that way!

Our hosts love gardening, so our patio was beautiful, comfortable and private!

Thanks again and hopefully, I will come back!

To our guests Latimer house prides themselves on being a very clean space for you to come enjoy you vacation time.
So please be kind and make sure your dishes and kitchen area is clean when you leave,( counters clean and dishes in the dish washer and turned on and stove clean.) I don't do the cleaning I have a cleaning lady come in and clean. She charges me 25.00 an hour. So if she has to clean up your kitchen area I think its fare that you have made the choice to not do the cleaning and will be charged 20.00 to pay for this service. Thank -you for your time to read this notice
