ABSOLUTELY SUITE IN THE WINE CAPITAL OF CANADA

Oliver Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath,

Come and stay in the heart of Okanagan Wine country. This 1000 sq foot, self-catering, daylight basement suite is the perfect location to explore the valley. Accommodation for two to four people. Close to two golf courses, a 5 minute walk to main street, with views overlooking the valley, this oasis in the desert is the ideal place to vacation.

Make Oliver your summer or winter destination. Use the two touring bicycles to amble along the banks of the Okanagan River using the paved hike and bike trail, or take the back country road to visit a dozen or more wineries.

In the winter, you are 45 minutes from Mount Baldy with its powder snow and no lineups. Return to the valley and relax in the hot tub with a glass of local wine.

Your home away from home in the wine capital of Canada.

5% discount for 7 or more night stay. Complimentary bottle of local wine for a 3 night stay during high season.

We came to Canada from New Zealand in 1975 and only intended to stay 2 years, but fell in love with the Okanagan. We have seen many changes from the valley being predominantly fruit to now, a large well established wine region. We have travelled extensively and enjoy the company of our guests.

Russell has a passion for photography and Christine is an avid gardener.

This fully self-contained suite with private spa, BBQ and patio area, is a vacationers delight.

Complimentary bikes to enjoy the many trails in the valley.

Beautiful private gardens to relax and enjoy the quail.

Only five minutes walk to town, and 10 to the local tennis courts and public swimming pool. Tuc El Nuit Lake provides non motorized water sports, only a 5 minute drive away.

ABSOLUTELY SWEET!

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I planned a weekend getaway to Oliver, BC. We were searching for a B&B online and since we saw so many positive reviews about this suite, I contacted the host right away. It was great to hear back from them so fast that we were able to book and plan the trip efficiently.

The hosts are very friendly and provide us great information about the area. Their house is lovely. The suite is pretty much as shown in the pictures- clean, spacious, homy, just a nice home to stay away from home! You got everything you need+extra facilities that you might enjoy to have there.

We would definitely visit the town and stay at the same B&B during the harvest season.

PEACEFUL ESCAPE

  • 4 of 5
We arrived on August 15th 2013 for our three-night stay at Absolutely Suite. Hosts Russell and Christine were easy to communicate with and responded quickly when I e-mailed the day before to confirm our arrival time.

The suite was nearly identical to the pictures on Trip Advisor, to the point where I felt as if I had been there before! The space was much larger than I had anticipated, which was a nice bonus. The living room is quite large, with a very comfortable leather sofa facing the big-screen television. The roomy kitchen comes complete with a full-sized fridge, oven and laundry machine and dryer. As you proceed down the hallway, there is a bathroom with a small shower and a lovely bedroom.

We did quite a bit of cooking during our stay, but never managed to use the BBQ. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment and utensils. There are grocery stores near-by, which Christine and Russell are happy to direct you to. The patio has covered and non-covered areas for eating, complete with a small two-chair table set and a larger wooden table for 4+ people.

The bathroom was well stalked with towels, and the shower, while small, had great water pressure. The bedroom was very nicely decorated, had a luxurious new mattress and crisp white linens. Both my partner and I get quite hot at night, so we asked Christine for a fan, which she was happy to provide.

We didn’t have a chance to use the hot tub or the bikes that were provided – time slipped away from us as we gallivanted around to all the amazing wineries in the area. We highly recommend lunch at Tinhorn Creek and a visit to the “Saloon” tasting room at Rustico. Christine and Russell were a wealth of knowledge, and are very easy to talk to. They provided a great selection of reading materials in the suite – both with respect to the local wineries, as well as a great collection of fiction novels. I managed to read The Shipping News and The Road during our stay ?

The location of the suite – both in its proximity to the main street in Oliver, and to the wineries, is ideal. It feels like a little private oasis, on a quiet street, surrounded by Christine’s gardens and overlooking the vineyards.

We would definitely recommend this spot to anyone visiting Oliver, and hope to return in the future to take advantage of the bikes and visit more of the great wineries Oliver has to offer.

Thank you Christine and Russell; see you again soon!

We spent two nights at the absolutely suite and wish we could've stayed longer! Russell and Christine were wonderful hosts and provided lots of great information on local restaurants and wineries. The location is great, on a private & quiet street in Oliver. We loved the complimentary bikes - used them to ride down to the lake for an evening and a morning swim, and also used them to explore the vineyards in the area. Felt right at home, very comfortable and spacious. Thanks for having us!

LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT ABSOLUTELY SUITE

  • 5 of 5
Christine & Russell have a fantastic suite and are a wealth of information about the area. It was a perfect base for our biking and wine touring adventure. The suite is extremely well equipped, quiet and an easy ride from the center of town. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in the area and highly recommend it.

A RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed 3 nights at the Absolutely Suite in late August. Hosts Russell and Christine are lovely. It was a real treat to pick fresh raspberries from the garden, sit outside and enjoy the view over the valley and easy access to the many activities available in the south Okanagan.
