About Bonnie and Ian Nichols

Hi my name is Bonnie and my husband Ian and I own and operate a sign company. I grew up in Kelowna and moved to Edmonton Alberta in my teens where I have lived ever since and met and married my Husband Ian who worked on the oil rigs. We have 2 amazing boys of 14 and 12 plus a new addition, a golden lab puppy. I have always dreamed of moving back one day, and was so happy to be able to purchase this vacation home with my husband from my Aunt and Uncle who owned it for 15 years before us. Thanks to VRBO, we are able to enjoy for a few weeks of the year as well as share it with other families who I know will love it as much as we do!

Bonnie and Ian Nichols purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Bonnie and Ian Nichols chose Fintry

Vacationers will love the warm character of this cottage. There is a distinct New England look to the small, family-friendly neighborhood. The home is constructed of Panabode logs giving such a rustic and comfy feel for a vacation, instead of staying in another plain, cookie-cutter house. With it's close proximity to the public beach, it is the perfect mix of family privacy and out-doorsy water fun that is hard to find on the main side of kelowna.

What makes this bungalow unique

There is also key amenities for a pet such as the large fenced-in yard, plus a small 'doggie beach' 5 mins from the main public beach that our dog loves to play fetch into the water from! There are also miles of groomed trails that you can hike, or take a quad straight up the mountain from behind the cottage.

Owner's Response: You picked a great spot to plan a wedding, Fintry Delta Provincial Park is truly the Okanagan's best kept secret. Ideal for family gatherings and vacations, with all the hiking and sightseeing, it is a hidden gem.

Beautiful cottage, great location.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five stayed here for the long weekend along with another couple and their kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. The fenced backyard was perfect for our dog, and it was a quick walk to the provincial park. This quiet and peaceful location was only a 45 min drive to Kelowna.

A lovely home that worked well for our group

  • 4 of 5

This is a comfy and well-equipped home that was a great place for a group of friends to stay. The property is well located near a nice beach and has a good outside space for games, meals and relaxation.

Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic stay in quiet neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

The Fintry Fun Cottage lives up to its name! We enjoyed our week long stay in the quiet beach Hamlet of Fintry. The house was well stocked and I appreciated the labelling of all the cupboards and drawers- felt at home in the kitchen immediately! Ther bedrooms upstairs provided plenty of space for our family of 5 and the fenced yard was perfect for our dog.

The neighbours were all very friendly and made us feel welcome to the area.

The boat launch was very, very close to the house so getting our boat in and out of the water was a breeze.

Having Fintry Provincial Park so close was an added bonus, I enjoyed running the stairs to the waterfall each morning.

The kids enjoyed the public beach, which was so close to the house it made it easy to stroll over and go for a float.

Thank you so much to Ian and Bonnie for sharing your cottage with us!

Great for Large groups

  • 5 of 5

Great place, location and size. A little out of the way but very relaxing and quite. Was able to house 6 adults and 3 kids and 1 dog without issue. Owners were very helpful and communication was quick and polite.

We had a great time and would love to return again.

Comfortable getaway

  • 4 of 5

Pictures do not do this vacation home any justice! My family along with two others spent a long weekend at this house and we had a terrific time. Huge property with several fruit trees and a fully fenced yard which was great for the puppy, and only a few minutes walking distance to a creek and the lake. The house had plenty of sleeping room and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would recomebd this for large family outings!
