PLEASE READ BEFORE INQUIRING ABOUT THIS HOME:
We don't spend our summers in the Okanagan, so we look for like minded travelers and professionals who are interested in looking after our home as if it were their own while we are away.
Short term rentals are currently in contravention of local City of Kelowna bylaws and are subject to hefty fines. We expect this to be ratified after the public hearing in January 2019. In the interim, we would like all interested parties to be advised and made clear that if you are interested in this property for SUMMER 2019 you will need to complete a mandatory HOUSE SITTING APPLICATION in order to secure your preferred date. We can forward this HOUSESITTING application to you upon request via email. We will review all applications for HOUSESITTING on a first come first serve basis.
Current availability can still be found in the calendar provided on this website. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask! We will NOT be accepting ANY short term rental requests, during this period, so please only contact us for HOUSESITTING opportunities.
If you are a neighbour with concerns about what we do with OUR home when we are not in town, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss our HOUSESITTING contract with you directly and YES we have this approved, in writing from the City of Kelowna By Law department.
We look forward to welcoming you to Kelowna!
New, fresh and modern design make this space feel just like home. Situated on 2.5 lake and mountain view acres with a freshly planted lavender farm and golf course style landscaping. This spacious 6000+ sq/ft home is a 60 second drive down the hill to quiet beach accesses and only 6 minutes drive to grocery shopping, coffee shops, local pubs and delicious sushi.
The home has multiple patios and outdoor spaces with walls of glass doors to open the home up to the outdoors. The layout allows you to relax and enjoy true Okanagan indoor/outdoor living. The rooftop deck, main floor living room deck and master bedroom deck all have cozy fireplaces to take in views of the lake, and surrounding tree topped mountains.
Two indoor fireplaces in both the main living spaces will keep you warm on cool summer nights, but those rarely occur here in Kelowna, so you’ll probably spend most of your time in the cool of the salt water pool or in the shade of one of our covered patios.
The nights will surely bring you back inside to grab a beverage and some light dinner in the welcoming contemporary kitchen. Relax on the kitchens large sectional sofa and catch some TV while you wait for your meal.
Saunter into the dining lounge for a bottle of wine as a summer breeze with a hint of lavender coasts through the open courtyard doors. The TV will play the same channel as in the kitchen, so you don't have to fear missing out on that critical play while you move about the main level. Listen to your favorite music through the houses Bose soundlink speakers.
If the evening is clear from clouds you'll want to wind down under the stars on the rooftop patio. The house is clear from glaring city and street lights making this an amazing spot to enjoy a fireside star gazing session.
Two king size beds on separate levels make this home ideal for two families travelling together. There are also two more bedrooms located upstairs with access to a shared Jack and Jill bathroom. One of these rooms has a queen sized bed and the other has two twin (single) beds with two twin (single) trundles. The house is large enough to have your own privacy when necessary with one formal living room and one large rec room with a wet bar off the pool level, a loft space (two single futons), office (twin bed), dining room, gym, kitchen, and nook. TV’s can be found throughout the home.
Guests will have access to the entire 2.5 acre property including a greenhouse and garden area for seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs to compliment your vacation meals. Guests also have access to their own personal mini sports field for playing a game of catch, tag football, bocce or soccer. Stroll around the paved pathway on the property and take in the wildlife that frequent the area. Be on the lookout for eagles, geese, gulls and hawks and you’re almost sure to see a herd of deer. At dusk you’ll also be able to hear the horses talking from the farm down the road while you relax under the string lights to the soothing hum of summer crickets.
