About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8 , plus room for 2 more on the sofa-bed .

Charming Kelowna hobby (horses) farm adjacent to Mission Park's inner city network of wilderness trails offers a unique vacation experience. Perfectly suited for family and friend reunions. All ages from tiny toddlers all the way to great grand parents enjoy the easy flow in this spacious one level home.

This 5 acre paradise is privately situated at the end of the road in a quiet peaceful country style neighbourhood, yet a short walk through the park takes you to one of Kelowna's major shopping centres. From your doorstep you can walk to shops or cycle down the Greenway past golf courses, through horse country, and eventually to Lakeshore road. The nearest golf or winery is within 3 klm all other amenities within 10 klm.

Please read on .... Be sure to study the map and see kelownavacationhouse the property does have its own

. CA wbsite with more detail.

As a farm the owners/caretakers are on site to maintain animals, grounds and pool, and live in a separate (connected), private suite. Your rental space including, 4 bedroom, 4 bathrooms, large kitchen, den, living room and dining, laundry, pool, tennis, patios is exclusively yours and very private.

Enjoy this well equipped home, right down to the hotel sheets, towels, and toiletries. See vrsupplies.ca

This property is generally not a good fit with adult only get-aways who are coming to the valley to enjoy rambunctious evenings with their friends. This is a family neighbourhood and since we also live here, we simply can not have traffic coming and going, or very loud social activity beyond 11 pm.

This property is a hidden gem. Tucked up against Mission Creek Regional Park's 92 hectares of inner city wilderness and hiking trails allowing you to cycle all the way to Lakeshore road and Pandosy's trendy urban hub.

On the property you have enough room to play endlessly, whether enjoying the large deep concrete pool or playing tennis. There's a stocked fishing pond down the quiet road and a little further a neighbourhood soccer field.

What makes this house unique

The home was well designed, all on one level, roomy, open with great flowing connections between indoor and outdoor living space. It has been regularly updated and is easy to maintain, all hard tuff flooring, the house has accommodated active families for decades. Also suited to people with limited mobility.

A perfect and lovely spot for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This property suited are needs perfectly. Providing four bedrooms and four bathrooms to accommodate senior aged couples for a golf and wine touring holiday. Everything we needed was included....well equipped kitchen, large dining room (with very comfortable chairs), comfortable beds with lovely linens, close to shopping and downtown area, The house is situated at the end of the road, a safe and tranquil area. The owners were available when needed and so easy to communicate with. The house is very spacious with lots of room for everyone. We were so busy golfing and site seeing that we did not get a chance to use the pool table or tennis court. The swimming pool was closed for the season, but we can imagine that it would be wonderful in the summer months. We highly recommend this rental and would absolutely consider renting it again.

The perfect spot for a multi-generational family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a five day weekend with our kids and their families (6 adults, 4 children under 6) at Lynne and Tim's and it couldn't have been any better. It was easy, relaxing and fun from start to finish. Lynne responded promptly to our booking request, we worked out the details and she sent us all the relevant information about the property and things to do in the area ahead of time. The home and grounds are well maintained and the house was spotless and well laid out and organized so that it was easy to keep tidy. It is spacious and well designed with a large well stocked kitchen, lots of dining space indoors and out, big bedrooms and so many great things/opportunities for intergenerational play. We played tennis and pool, rode bikes, hiked to the turtle and fish ponds, petted the horses (with Lynne's permission :) checked out the Mission Creek Greenway and swam and swam and swam. Our 5 year old and two 3 year olds fell in to bed each night completely played out...and each morning they woke up and couldn't wait to check out the yard and pool...even the baby spent hours in the pool. It was active, relaxing, refreshing and such a fun place to spend a family gathering. With so many things to do on site, we hardly ventured out, but we did make a trip to the Kangaroo Creek at Winfield - it was a really fun way to spend a morning (go early to hold the Joey's). Thanks again Lynne and Tim for sharing your beautiful place.

A perfect bungalow with wheelchair access and room for 10 people.

  • 5 of 5

This location was exactly as described with all the amenities required. The entire property was well maintained and clean with no issues. Most importantly we have a son in a wheelchair that had full access to the entire property including the pool, outdoor pool shower, and tennis/basketball courts. The owners are excellent providing great customer service via text or phone responding immediately to any questions or concerns prior too or during our stay. When our vehicle broke down the owners not only provide a work place, but their tools to assist in completing the repairs. This is the best VRBO we have rented and were treated like family or friends, not just customers and that is why we secured our 2017 vacation dates at this location prior to departing. Thanks for a great stay.

Every thing we could have wished for!

  • 5 of 5

A well stocked kitchen, a dining table that seats 10, a pool table, a pool, a tennis court, a short walk to the Farmer's Market, a nice little bike ride to the lakeshore, easy access to the Kettle Valley Railway trails plus lots of golf courses and wineries...it was the perfect spot for our group of 8 active friends (4 couples). The description and pictures were accurate and helpful, the property was spotless and well maintained. It was serene and private and yet close to all that Kelowna has to offer. Lynne and Tim were/are the perfect hosts, friendly, responsive and easy to communicate with. They were there when we needed them although they were very unobtrusive and we felt like we had the place all to ourselves. Altogether lovely! We'll be back.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place.

Teens brought their bikes and said they were able to ride to lakeshore (ten minute drive) on trails through parks.

Kids had so much fun. Pool was not open yet being April, but they played tennis one full afternoon while we golfed.

We'll be back.
