The perfect place for our family to meet up

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I went back home to Nelson with our families and stayed in the Cali suite.

It was so perfect for us and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is lovely and filled with beautifully curated art. The beach was just what we were hoping for. The seclusion and water views made even the rainy days awesome for watching the birds and deer. Every one of us including all the adult children were very impressed with the place and are planning to return. Very nice stay.

Great lakeside vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had the Cali Suite for the May long weekend. The location on Kootenay Lake is beautiful and we really enjoyed the deck and hot tub. That outdoor space would be suitable for hosting larger groups too. The suite itself is spacious, nicely decorated and well-equipped, including a full kitchen. There are also two large screen TVs and a house-wide sound system for indoor entertainment. Being on two levels was nice for us because our teenage kids could have their own space. Everything was very clean throughout. The house is in a a quiet rural area but it only takes 10 minutes or so to get into Nelson. Owners were nice to deal with too. Overall an excellent rental.

Can't Wait to Go Back

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot. The suite is decorated so nice and it has it all......beach, sand, lawn, children's play ground, kayaks, paddle boat, fire pit, outside fire place, hot tub, modern appliances, and spectacular views.

We only went for a quick one night girls get-a-way. I already have in the back of my mind to spend at least 3 nights when we have family that comes to visit. Maybe not this year, but next summer for sure I will plan a vacation at this VRBO.

Awesome views, great space

  • 4 of 5

The reservation and checkin process went smoothly. We really enjoyed the views and the private beach. The place was nicely decorated and had a comfortable amount of space for our group of 6 adults with 4 small children. The outdoor space was phenomenal with a custom deck, with a fire place, hot tub and fantastic views.

The only 2 noteworthy cons for this property: The train runs right behind the house and came past a few times per day and the master bed and one of the downstairs beds are not comfy for 2 people because they sag in the middle. Other than that, it's a great place! We would stay here again.

Jim was extremely easy and a pleasure to work with. While we decided not to travel to Canada for this girl weekend, I fully anticipate keeping this listing in my favorites for future reference. Thank you Jim.
