The home is surrounded by gardens. There are four decks, one on each side of the home, which you can relax and watch the sunrise or sunset, which ever you prefer.

The home and neighbourhood are both child friendly with two parks located within a short walk. Both parks have tennis courts and children’s play area. There is a tranquil duck pond steps away from the home. If you want to venture a little further, it is only 6 minutes to the beaches, Knox Mountain Park or downtown Kelowna.

About Valary Chidwick

We bought our home 12 years ago and began a labour of love creating and healthy comfortable artistic home. We love living in the Okanagan and want to be able to share our home with other families. Renting our home helps support our children's sports endeavours which seem to be many.

Valary Chidwick purchased this house in 2005

Why Valary Chidwick chose Central City

Our home is located in an older neighbourhood with large property lots. The benefit is you are close to all the amenities and downtown but yet still have the feeling of being away in your own private oasis at the end of the day.

What makes this house unique

We are close to beaches, parks, pathways, shopping, golfing, and you have multiple transportation options of biking, walking, driving, or bus.

Family home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Val's house! It is well located, nice neighborhood, quiet, lovely garden! We enjoyed lovely tomatoes and fresh herbs! Great garden, backyard seating, front yard seating!

The house has everything needed! Our family had a great time!

The house felt like home with all the personal things in the house!

What we didn't like was the old over used furniture in both leaving rooms! One bed also needs replacing. The bedding, towels, beach towel were great!

We are definitely considering staying there again if the furniture gets replaced with newer, more comfortable pieces!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the fresh heritage tomatoes from the garden. We do have some favourite vintage furniture which are family heirlooms. We appreciate that this furniture may not suit everyone's tastes. A few of our beds have organic latex mattresses. They provide a natural sleep for those who may have environmental sensitivities. These mattresses will feel different from the conventional mattresses and may not suit everyone. Thanks for staying with us.

Great stay for our blended family of 7!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July 2016. Our group consisted of 6 adults and a 3 year old including my aunt and uncle who were visiting from the UK. this house had absolutely everything we needed. lots of towels, great kitchen, tv, bbq, beautiful patio and great spacious bedrooms including an areaa with bedroom which we designated to the snorer of the group. The house was spacious and cozy with all the comforts of home. Location is great with close proximity to downtown and the lake. Great parking as well including a great separate parking pad for our boat that was easy to get in and out of (my husbands biggest worry every time we go to BC). Valary was very helpful and accommodating even when I screwed up our checkout date which was one day earlier than it was supposed to be!

Would definitely rent this vacation property again. Thanks for the great stay!

Clean, spacious house with great views.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend with five of my friends. It was really wonderful and had everything we needed. (i.e. An abundance of towels for 6 people.) It's a beautiful lot with a very large garden. The owners were responsive and the pictures of the property were accurate. All in all, we had a great stay.

Well-Located, Mid-Century Gem

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Valary and family for sharing your incredible home. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kelowna visit, and your home was a large part of it. In particular, our children enjoyed the baskets and chests full of toys, the well-organized "craft cupboard" and picking raspberries in the backyard. The adults enjoyed the large, bright kitchen area with its picturesque views and plenty of space to seat all the kids and accommodate several "cooks" at once. The multiple outdoor seating areas were also very much appreciated. The property itself is well-located in a family-friendly residential neighbourhood walking distance to parks, ponds and playgrounds. We were also grateful for the abundant household supplies, gadgets, linens, cleaners and kitchen basics supplied for guests. We've stayed at VRBO rentals around the world and this one is up there with the best.
