Overview

Kelowna House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

The Knox Mountain Carriage House is a clean, bright and airy one bedroom suite. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, the location is a relaxing low-key retreat that is amongst nature while minutes away from the amenities a tourist-friendly city provides.

The carriage house is newly built and was designed for maximum light, open floorplan, and socializing. It has French doors opening off the kitchen area for a view of Knox Mountain and a gentle breeze. The east facing balcony is a great place to enjoy breakfast and listen to the quiet of birds and crickets chirping, marmots peeping and the smell of fresh cool morning air. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can prepare your own meals if you choose. The washer/dryer makes extended stays convenient and for evenings in, you can rent movies through the video on demand. It sleeps 4 with hide-a-bed and is perfect for a small family or couple.

The location is tucked away in one of the best-kept residential secrets of Kelowna because it is a 3 minute drive to the shops in downtown Kelowna, the cultural district, the Grand casino, fantastic restaurants, wildlife viewing areas and a 4-kilometer lake promenade, yet with all this, Okanagan Lake is a short 1.5 blocks down the street, with grassy Sutherland Park perfect for picnics with its mature canopy of elm and willow trees, a boat launch for motorized boats, a kayak/canoe launch, a 9 hole frisbee golf course, and tennis courts. Just across the street is Knox Mountain Park, which has 282 hectares of walking/hiking/biking trails. A short drive to the top of the mountain takes you to viewpoint pavillions with breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake.

A 20 minute drive will bring you to the Kettle Valley Railway trails, a historic area great for mountain biking or walking across high trestles and through tunnels.

Cute carriage house in a beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Knox Mountain Carriage House! You're right across the street from a beautiful park which leads into both the Okanagan Lake, and up into Knox Mountain for several interesting destinations including beautiful views of Kelowna and the lake, and some less-visited beaches (Paul's Tomb). There are a few grasser spots to swim about 3 minutes away, or it's about a 15 minutes walk to the beach at the Grand Okanagan.

The apartment itself was fantastic, while smaller, having more than enough space for all of our clothes, food, and other belongings. It's well kept and all of the appliances and furniture are quite new. The air conditioner works great to keep things comfortable in a very hot city!

We usually drove down a little closer to downtown for dinners and activities, but downtown is within walking distance too (we walked over most of the nights).

Lisa and Evano have put together a great spot. We found our stay to be excellent value, and would come back if we were in Kelowna again!

Great Apartment for Two

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property for 4 nights in July 2014. We were in town for a family wedding, and it suited our needs perfectly. It was a great space for 2.

There was great attention to the apartment being well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed, although we ended up just having breakfast there. There are also other great touches, such as tourist info being left out for us; an iron and ironing board (which was needed to touch up our wedding clothes), beach towels, and operating directions for the tv. There were also a good supply of bath towels, and extra pillows, which was very appreciated. This may seem common place, but it is surprising how many places we have rented do not include these touches.

The apartment was really easy to find, and it was great to be able to just let ourselves in and settle in after our flight. It has ample natural light, and at night was very quiet. We had a rental car, and parked in under the street light. We were not worried, despite the unit being across the street from a public hiking area. In fact, we would love to come back and bring our hiking boots next time.

If I had to make comments on anything that was an inconvience, I would say that the master bedroom was a bit small, and because the bed was up against one wall, it made making the bed a bit of a chore. There was no closet in the bedroom, and we hung our clothes in the front entryway. This wasn't a big deal, but if we were having people over it would have been nice to have a curtain to hid the clothes. Also, there was a tall bookshelf in the bedroom, which was ackward storage for our clothes. A dresser or cabinet would have been easier. There was no room for our suitcase in the bedroom, so we put clothes that couldn't be hung up on the shelves. However, a minor point in an otherwise much better choice over a hotel room.

Wine Sabatical

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed in this wonderful suite for 4 days. It had all we needed, so we ended up making all our meals and didn't eat out once!
We wine toured by day, bought our wines and came right back here for our evenings to relax, drink wine and share stories.
The cost to stay here was as much as any hotel, so why not stay here!
Great walks up Knox mountain, along the beach and 20 min to downtown.
Met the owner and what a great person, really cared about our stay and that we had all that we needed.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
This rental was exactly as pictures showed, and was very comfortable. I felt like the small details were considered, and the kitchen was well stocked. The only small disappointment was there was no Keurig as advertised.
The rental is close enough that you can walk to downtown (max 30 mins), and beaches (10-20 mins). We definitely had more fun staying here than staying further afield at somewhere like a holiday inn, where you can't walk to the beaches.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Leah! Not many people were using the Keurig but since your comment we realized that some people do appreciate having it so we put a new Keurig machine in the carriage house with an assortment of coffees.

Very Quiet and Clean suite

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our one year old daughter and really enjoyed ourselves. The suite was very clean and had everything we needed. We were impressed with how well-equipped it was - everything from a cheese grader to fabric stain remover - they haven't missed a thing! We enjoyed the proximity to the park and lake okanagan, as well as to the trails up Knox Mountain. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Stay at Knox Mountain Carriage House

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at the Knox Mountain Carriage House and loved it. We are first time VRBO users and first time staying in something like a carriage house. The apartment was spacious, extremely well-stocked and maintained and we plan on staying there again when we are in Kelowna. The location was very near several great parks and the lake and is close to downtown Kelowna.
The owner was very friendly and helpful with local information such as hiking in the area and restaurants.
We would definitely recommend this property!
