About Gill EVans

We have three adult children and emigrated to Canada in 2008, after falling in love with Peachland. In the 2 years we have been here we have made many friends and have embraced the Okanagan laid back and outdoor lifestyle. We enjoy meeting people, hiking, fishing, swimming and skiing. In fact our youngest son was in the British Ski Team for many years. Our favorite pastimes is joining our friends for a drink in a cafe along Beach Avenue and watching the world go by. Bliss!

Gill EVans purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Gill EVans chose Peachland

One of the many reasons we chose to buy in the the Okanagan Valley is the climate, It is located at the northern most end of the Sonora Desert and hence has a semi-arid climate, boasting long warm summers and relative mild winters compared to elsewhere in Canada. It is also in an ideal location being in the heart of the Okanagan making it easy to take advantage of everything it has to offer. We also loved the fact that we could be at a ski resort within 15mins in the winter and a major ski resort in just over an hour. We were very lucky to find a beautiful house on a flat acre of land, with a suite and also with a legal Carriage Houses, as there are only 4 legal carriage houses in the whole of Peachland and knew it would make ideal holiday accommodation. We really do enjoy sharing our great facilities with our guests and are greatly rewarded when we see our guests enjoying the pool and other amenities.

Perfect - accommodation, location and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Poolside Retreat in March, I would definitely revisit and highly recommend! The location was perfect and the setting beautiful. Gillian and Ray were great hosts during my stay and the accommodation was everything I could have asked for.

Highly recommended - Thankyou!

Poolside Retreat Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples and one single - plenty of room for all. We very much enjoyed the pool and cottage - clean and spacious with all the amenities of home. Very peaceful and private. Highly recommend to those wishing to enjoy Peachland, but get away from the crowds. The owners are interesting, friendly and non-intrusive.

Another Paradise Getaway in Poolside Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week stay at Poolside Retreat. This was our 3rd visit and fist stay at Carriage House. This is a little paradise surrounded by green hills and just a minutes of drive from the Peachland's beach avenue. The place has everything you need and beautiful surroundings. The accomodations is 5 star, great pool, the only place I feel like home. Cleanest bed sheets, towels, kitchen utencils. Lot's of space and beatiful gardens. We traveled with 2 years old toddler and she loves the place. Everytime we go the owner brings in bunch of toys for her to play, which is great and I don't need to bring over her toys with me from home. It is a paradise getaway no matter ou travel with kids or alone.Highly recommend and will retun next summer again hopefully!

Poolside suite lovely, affordable spot for a family

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five (3 children under age 7) stayed for a week in the Poolside Suite. The suite is located in the daylight basement of the owners' home (Carriage House is a separate building) but has a private entrance and even has a view of the mountains. Our favorite things about the rental were the pool and the location. We loved being out in the countryside but still so close to town. We were able to bike around the area including to the Trepanier Bench Greenway and the Parrot Sanctuary, which were both a lot of fun. We swam every afternoon in the pool which our kids absolutely loved. The grounds are beautifully kept as well. The owners provided toys and books for our kids which was a nice touch. The Poolside Suite has a very small kitchen but we made it work. For such a tiny kitchen it is very well stocked. There are no indoor cooking facilities apart from the microwave and toaster but the grill has a burner so we were able to make a few dinners that way.

We really appreciated all Gillian's recommendations for what to do in the area.

While the Poolside Suite is quite spacious the layout of the furnishings was a bit strange for us. When you first walk into the large living area there is only a pool table, with a sign not to put anything on it (it has a cover), making that room essentially dead space. There is no other furniture near the front door so we ended up with lots of big piles of stuff all over the floor. Because we have small children a pool table wasn't useful to us and, for our family, a different use of that space (more living area) would have been preferential, as well as some kind of coat stands and/ or shelves/ tables for organizing all our stuff. The living room is beyond the pool table and is quite small but was adequate. There is another open space outside the two bedrooms but it also seemed like wasted space. That room contains only a desk and a sofa bed. It could be a lovely library/ seating area but is mostly unfurnished right now.

Overall we really enjoyed staying at the Poolside Suite and found it a lovely, comfortable spot for our family at an affordable price for the area.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

came upon this rental when frantically looking for places to stay during the September long weekend. And I have to say that the pictures on the rental listing did not do this little cottage justice.. It was clean, modern appliances, bbq, pool- all within a short drive from Peachland. And the rental rate was much less than what was being charged at comparable lodges/ cabins. It was obvious that the owners take great pride in their property. They were available if we had questions and provided great suggestions for things to do in town and area. This placeI would definitely come back if returning to the area.
