General description

  • Main home
If you like to go outside and play, you'll enjoy staying at our home!

We have a spacious 1 level house with 1 friendly cat in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. We live on the outskirts of town among orchards and vineyards with endless miles of trails for walking. It's a quiet friendly neighborhood, but you're less than a 15 minute drive from all the amenities in Kelowna. There are 2 major ski resorts within an hour and a half drive of our place.
We're looking for one person or a couple.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A cat
Our cat is very sweet and personable. Rosie is a fluffy cat who is approx. 7 years young and healthy. She likes to play and sit on your lap on the couch to cuddle and purr.
Normal duties are the kitty must be fed twice a day, and litter box cleaned daily. Snow clearing may also be required to keep the driveway and sidewalk clear. We have a tenant downstairs and ask our house sitters to be quiet and respectful.

This is a great spot for nature lovers!
Besides our wonderful neighbors that live on our street, we see deer, hawks, eagles, owls and coyotes. It's a very quiet neighborhood with a few houses and some acreages. It feels removed from the city but it's only a 15 minute drive from all the amenities.
We enjoy the outdoor activities and watching the sun set from the living room window. Our place has a large deck where you can bundle up in the winter with some hot chocolate and enjoy a bit of sun.
We have a large TV screen and Netflix, but no cable TV. For the digital nomad, you will enjoy the peace and quiet of this home with an office space and reliable high speed internet. Maybe this is where you'll finish your project, write your book, do some art, or sing (when the tenant isn't home).

Comfort and Luxury

  • One floor
  • 7 rooms of which one bedroom
  • Contemporary
  • Terrace / Balcony
  • Car parking available
  • Television / DVD library
  • Fitted kitchen
We built our place to work with our outdoor life style. A large kitchen where two can cook together, a comfortable living room with 2 cushy sofas, a lounge chair, an electric operated fire place, bright, large windows to read, relax or watch TV.
We also have an office and fiber optic high speed internet.
We are non-smokers, and our home is scent free (that means no perfume, scented candles, artificial air fresheners, or scented laundry detergents).
The clean and uncluttered guest bedroom where the house sitter would sleep has a nice queen size bed, large closet, shelf, blinds and curtains. You may have a cat visiting at night and sleeping on the bed with you.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Mountain
  • Countryside
  • Forest
  • Beach
  • Cinema
Our town of Kelowna is known for its tourist attractions such as plenty of outdoor activities, wineries, and great restaurants and coffee hang outs. The ski hill Big White is approx. 1 hour's drive from us, and if you don't feel like driving in the winter, there is a daily shuttle bus that goes up to Big White leaving from near-by.
We have x-country skiing only an hour away but that requires a car. Snow shoeing however can be done right from our door! Ski equipment can be rented either on the mountain or at our local sports rental shop.
10 minutes drive from our house is the YMCA H2O Aquatic center, featuring pools, hot tubs, steam room, large gym and fitness classes all for a $12 drop in fee.
For Foodies, Kelowna offers a great variety - tasty food from Sushi, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Thai, Vegetarian, Vegan, Pizza, etc. On the way into town we have 2 pubs, each with a Montana type atmosphere, featuring great beer on tap, meals and a huge fire place, plus pool tables, etc.
If you're interested in a group hike, yoga, meditation rock climbing or any other hobbies, there are a wide range of groups in the area to connect with.
