About the property

Fully furnished basement suite with private entrance and your own pool & hot tub

Stay just minutes away from the amazing Kelowna downtown core with a fully furnished basement suite complete with pool & outdoor hot tub!

**Please note that nearing the end of September, the pool availability will be weather dependant and that it will likely shut down sometime in October, again, depending on the weather. The hot tub us open year round though!

Only 6 blocks from the downtown core of Kelowna including all of the great restaurants, pubs and beaches, you're close to everything you could ever need for the perfect Okanagan getaway!

Sleeps 2 - 6 comfortably. The bedrooms are as follows:

Bedroom 1: King

Bedroom 2: Queen

Also - full laundry in the unit means you don't have to pack as many clothes!

Start your vacation by taking a dip in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub only steps away from your suite to use at your leisure.

We're close to many golf courses that are all in full swing!

Take a tour of the countless wineries that dot the entire Okanagan landscape - each with their own breathtaking view. And the options for dining & nightlife on any scale is unsurpassed for such a small city.

*One quick note - the ceiling is a bit lower than normal but I'm 6"2 and don't have any major issues and we haven't had a guest complaint yet. I don't think it is much of a concern as I'm sure you'll be spending the majority of your time outside but we just don't want you to have any unwanted surprises upon your arrival!

Also - due to recent incidents, we now strictly enforce our policy of only allowing registered guests on the property. This is to make sure all who are staying are covered by our insurance.

About Stephen Murray

Christie is originally from Moosejaw, Saskatchewan but has spent the better part of the last 10 years living in the Okanagan. She's the one that's going to be able to fill you in on ALL the local secrets and hot spots. Stephen is from a tiny town called Tilley, Alberta. They met in Calgary and would always come back to Kelowna to visit. Stephen eventually fell in love with the town - it's beautiful weather, fantastic restaurants, so much golf, water everywhere and too many wineries to count! - From then on, they always talked about the possibility of moving to Kelowna. Now that time has come and we couldn't have found a better place to live! We really enjoy the fact that our house was set up in a way that we get to share what we consider a very special place, with so many people from all over the world.

Stephen Murray purchased this house in 2015

Why Stephen Murray chose Central City

With Christie being from the Okanagan, we'd always hoped to find a place there when our jobs allowed it. That time finally came and we found the perfect house for us. The reasons we love it will be the same reasons you do too. A quiet neighbourhood, walking distance to all the great things downtown has to offer, a wonderful golf course nearby and hey - it's even got a pool AND a hot tub!!

What makes this house unique

As mentioned above - when we saw the pool, that was almost it! But then we looked at the rest of the house and it's got such great character in a cool, mature neighbourhood - we just had to have it.

Good overnight stay

  • 4 of 5

Stephens place was good for a one night stay. A bit of a funny lay out as you have to walk though the bathroom to access the living area, not a huge deal. The ceiling is quite low but wouldn’t bother someone of average height. The walking upstairs is much louder than I expected and the lack of communication was a bit annoying. However understandable with it being the holiday season. The hot tub was nice and the rooms had comfortable beds and were very spacious. It was nice and warm and cozy overall. Thanks for having us.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review Suman. We do apologize about the lack of communication, however, as you did arrive an hour before check in, we did not have the welcome letter printed off and in the suite yet which we always do by check in time. We messaged you twice via the VRBO app right after you arrived to get it to you with no response as well knocked on the suite door repeatedly with no answer. When we did finally hear back from you, it was after 10pm and we were in bed. I do apologize for the inconvenience you experienced but we did try our very best to get in contact with you to make sure you had everything you needed and hope it wasn't too much of a damper on your stay. Thank you, Stephen

Summer wedding in Kelowna

  • 4 of 5

A family wedding brought us to Kelowna, we were looking for a place for 6 adults to get together for fun and relaxation. This was the perfect spot. Great location, close to all of the events we were attending. Stephan and Christie are great hosts. Giving you what you need as well as giving you your privacy. Thanks

Helpful owners, great location, comfy beds and Netflix!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the suite for 3 nights for a ladies weekend away. The unit was nice and clean and had everything we needed to prepare our breakfasts in the morning. (Toaster, coffee maker etc) The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated being able to have use of the Netflix account! The location is very close to downtown so cab rides were very short to get to dinner and bars :) The hot tub was a nice touch, unfortunately we were there too early in the season to have use of the pool. The owners were very accommodating and were easy to reach via email or text when we had questions before our arrival. I will definitely stay here again! Hopefully in the summer so we can enjoy the pool area more :)

Older charming basement suite with a great pool and backyard areas

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and Stephan and Christie were very accommodating. The suite is a bit older but they have done an amazing job making it feel clean, bright and homey. They had everything we needed and more. We really enjoyed the pool, hot tub and backyard which felt very private. The set up of the suite is a little different with the front room, one bed room and kitchen being on one side, and the other having a tv area and 2 bedrooms. The two sides are connected through the bathroom (toilet area is behind another door). We had our 7 month old son and the set up was actually ideal because he could nap on the one side and we could make dinner and hangout in the front room or outside without worrying about disturbing him. It was nice to have the 2separate lounging areas. We hope to be back again!

Great Suite for Family Time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3 day stay! We really enjoyed the pool and space for our family of 4. It was nice and clean. Close to Downtown. Weather was great which is always a bonus. We will definitely look at booking back next time we are in Kelowna.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and sons stayed here when we went to Kelowna for a few days during a trip to Vancouver. The property was perfect for what we needed. We were doing wine tours and golfing and needed a place to relax at the end of the day. The pool and hot tub were a great way to decompress. Stephen and Christine were great hosts, we didn't want for anything.

I know many people have commented on the low ceilings. It's true they are a bit low, but my oldest son is 6'1 and he had no problems. It's a basement suite, it is hardly going to have cathedral ceilings.

I highly recommend staying here, we had a fantastic time. Thank you again Stephen, Christine and Miikka!!
