About Julie Patan
After vacationing in Summerland on numerous occasions with our family we decided the area would be the ideal future retirement destination. So in 2008 we left sunny Alberta and called Summerland home! Two of our children had already left the nest so we packed up the younger two and started on this incredible journey. We now have become empty nesters and want to share with others what drew us to this beautiful area.
Julie Patan purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Julie Patan chose Summerland
We were very fortunate when house hunting that our house had just come onto the market the previous day, it met all the criteria we were looking for in a home.
What makes this Apartment unique
The excellent location, flat driveway, quiet cul-de-sac, walk out basement, large yard and house design made this house feel like home the minute we stepped inside.

Beautiful, Refreshing and Relaxing
I came to stay with my daughter and husband and it was exactly what we needed and more. We were overwhelmed with the gift basket at arrival and all the little touches that made us feel so welcomed and right at home. It was in immaculate condition inside and out! Doug and Julie were wonderful as well as their son Joel who showed us the suit at arrival. They thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave. We definately plan to book again! Thanks again for a great family vacation!! 😊
Thank-you for the wonderful review, we cannot be more grateful that you chose us for your vacation getaway in the Okanagan! We look forward to seeing you when you visit Summerland again.

Wonderful Place to Stay
Well stocked, clean and bright. Great outdoor patio area to enjoy when the weather is nice. Highly recommend this rental. Julie & Doug were great to deal with.
A Hidden Gem it Truly Is
Julie and Doug have created a lovely space in which to stay and are just wonderful hosts. The suite is decorated in a modern style with all the comforts of home. There are so many thoughtful extras from a welcome basket with treats from the Okanagan Valley to a fridge stocked with condiments, eggs, bread milk and fruit. Knowing we didn't have to rush to buy groceries after a long travel day was such an added bonus. The same thoughtfulness extends to the bath, where Julie and Doug have provided toiletries should you have forgotten anything.
We were met upon arrival and shown how the outdoor kitchen works. That was such a novelty and set up with everything you could need to create your meals. It was so accessible it was no difficulty that the kitchen is mostly outdoors. The suite is clean, very roomy and the beds are great. The outdoor deck and pool area are just lovely with 2 separate sitting areas. We also had our 2 small dogs with us who were welcomed with open arms. We loved it. I can't say enough about this Hidden Gem and we will be back.
Doug and Julie, thank you
A Wonderful Rental in a Great Location
Seven of us, 3 adults and 4 children aged 4 months to 11 years stayed for 6 days in Hidden Gem in August 2017. I have stayed in VRBOs around the world and this was truly one of my favourites. What I appreciated most were the little extras - the condiments in the fridge, the eggs, the butter, the milk, coffee cream and orange juice as well as the salt and pepper, the sugar, the coffee and tea, and the cooking oil and spices. All the things you hate to run out to buy when you know you will throw most of them out. And the welcome basket was wonderful. It is beautifully decorated and the beds are comfortable. The pool and the hot tub were just an added bonus to help keep the kids entertained. Or, once the kids were in bed, to relax and unwind after a busy day. Julie and Doug were excellent hosts, attentive but in no way intrusive. The only thing to be aware of is that the cooking area is outdoors currently. This was in no way an inconvenience for us but if you are into gourmet cooking you may find it less than ideal. There are 2 hotplates outside (wish they were induction as they were somewhat slow to heat but that may be only because I am used to induction) and the burner on the barbecue, so there were enough cooking spaces. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Hidden Gem to friends and family. It is truly a wonderful place to spend some time.
Thank you for the fantastic review! It truly was our pleasure to host you and your family, we truly enjoyed seeing your grand children enjoy the pool, and thank Zak again for saving the day with Joel's dog Neeva.

Great Vacation Rental Property!
We had a fabulous time staying at Hidden Gem for over two weeks in July 2017. Everything we needed and so much more was in the suite and readily available. Doug and Julie were excellent hosts and we enjoyed visiting with them. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. We would definitely book again at Hidden Gem!
Thank you for the great review, we truly enjoyed having you stay with us and look forward to seeing you again, perhaps when you want to put the new boat in the water!

The Hidden Gem is wonderful
My husband and I went to the hidden gem for 3 nights as part of 10 day BC honeymoon. We had an incredible stay. Doug and Julie are so welcoming. They provided us a with a delightful welcome package showcasing the amazing local goods from the area. I enjoy shopping and dining local so also went to purchase more goods from the shops to also bring home for our house sitters. The pool area was fantastic we swam at some point every day. We also enjoyed the hot tub one evening. We were able to get excellent recommendations for anything we wanted to do. They also have an array of information inside.
Every need is looked after and its wonderful to be able to do laundry. This is a great place for so many possible scenarios. Having an outdoor kitchen to get supper going also while enjoy the pool is a a delight. We hope to possibly go back in the winter time for the nearby ski areas or for sure with another couple in the summer. It was everything we could possibly ask for and so much more. We are so grateful we were able to stay at the Hidden Gem.
Thank you! Sara & Eric,
We had a fantastic time hosting for you and were pleasantly surprised how clean the unit was after you had left to return home! We look forward to seeing you on your winter ski vacation!!!
