Nestled amongst the trees on a hillside which overlooks Lake Okanagan and the mountains beyond, our special upper suite awaits. Welcome to our cozy Nest! Our peaceful neighbourhood, is the closest Okanagan Lake-side community to UBCO and the Kelowna Airport. Perfect for walking, exploring, relaxing. One complimentary bottle of VQA wine upon arrival and cold, bottled glacier water waiting in the fridge. Five minute walk to lake with beach.
Lounge in the new, queen-sized bed which looks directly out upon the beautiful view. Please note: the 'bedroom' is separated by a wall from the living room space, but it does not have a door so as to maximize the view. There is a full walk-in, well lit closet with a full length mirror and door for changing.
Enjoy your own private, upper deck, perfect for a morning coffee, warm evenings of star-gazing, or lazy afternoons over-looking the lake (in suite binoculars at the ready.)
The public dock and beach is wonderful for sitting and quiet reflection in the spring and fall and, of course, swimming on those heavenly beach days of summer. On cooler days, curl up with a good book in front of your cozy electric fireplace.
Or head out for a winter adventure of world class skiing and boarding on the powdery slopes of Big White or Silver Star Mountains, both approximately one hour away.
Feeling inspired? We have a wall-sized chalk board in your kitchen/dining area that's perfect for jotting down that new theory, or maybe the brilliant opening line to that novel you've always wanted to write. (Or, at the very least, your grocery list, a doodle or a quick game of x's and o's!) Speaking of games, we have the classics - Scrabble, Chess, a deck of cards, Backgammon and Battleship.
There is also a sketch book for you to use. Leave your sketches for the next guest to enjoy, or feel free to take your masterpiece out of the book to take along home with you.
There are binoculars at the ready to figure out 'what the heck is that' on the lake. Mckinley is a very safe neighbourhood for walking, even at night, but take along the flashlight. Both on the chest by the sliding door.
You may here the yip of a coyote (they live way, way up in the hills behind and are not any concern), or the whoosh of a barn owl's wings above you if you venture out for an evening stroll.
For some quiet reading time there are some magazines and best selling paperbacks to look through.
Sit back and relax and enjoy basic cable on your 43" TV. Or, Chromecast Netflix (from your device), or play your own photo slideshow of your day's adventures (from your device), onto the TV. LG soundbar for your own music to play on (from your device) in the suite (bluetooth or direct usb connect.)
Don't forget to experience the best of both worlds of Kelowna, by venturing only 18 mins into downtown to explore the fantastic restaurants, pubs and entertainment available, and then, leaving the hustle and bustle to return to your peaceful retreat at the end of your adventure.

We have two well-behaved, friendly dogs and one cat, but they are never in or near the suite. Sorry, but no guest pets allowed. Thank you!
I am a graphic designer and my husband works at the high school here in Kelowna, BC and helps special needs students. We have two amazing daughters that we are so proud of! We both come from large, extended families and enjoy welcoming visitors to our home. We have hosted international students and really enjoyed building friendships with them. At home we have a goofy(!) Golden Retriever named Wilson and a rescued Pomeranian named Eddie. Our lovely cat Muffin rules over all. :)
