Incredible value for your money in Canada's Palm Springs playground on the lake. A quiet, clean and quaint heritage artist's house in a village of 1950's bungalows at the base of Knox Mountain only 20 minutes walk away from downtown.
No children. No pets.

Lovely feeling of stepping into a calmer past with all of imperfections and sense of character that come with a heritage home.
You will not find another host with as much experience and as many positive reviews in all of Kelowna.

Where you’ll be

Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

My neighbourhood is a 15 to 20 minute walk away from many restaurants, coffee houses, local shops, an actor's theatre company, walk up Knox Mountain to view the expanse of the lake. The area is quiet, serene and an historical enclave of houses built from 1946 to 1950.

Once an English teacher now I am an artist, writer and tutor. Those who stay in my house described it as a retreat and a healing place. The house is pet free and quiet. Buddhist studies have been a focus in my life for several years.

I am a counsellor with vast experience in mindfulness practice and behavioural studies.

I hold three university degrees and have begun work on a fourth. My interests are in all aspects of creative expression, politics, urban culture and personal development. I have been to London, Paris, Barcelona, Florence, Rome and up the Amazon in Peru.

Most of my time is spent creating art or poetry. I do various poetry performances around Kelowna. If you are interested in learning about the culture scene in Kelowna, come stay with me.

I am fascinated by contemporary culture and love meeting people from around the world.
