KNOX MOUNTAIN CARRIAGE HOUSE 2 BLOCKS FROM OKANAGAN LAKE

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.

Great Stay

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

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

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!

I'd recommend Know Mountain Carriage House

We recently spent a week in this clean, well-maintained and bright carriage house in Kelowna during one of the hottest weeks of the year. The air-conditioning was a blessing and the space had everything we needed for my husband, our two-year old and myself. The location is very central and close to Knox Mountain for great walks.
The only thing that would have made this stay perfect was if the beach that is within walking distance was swim-friendly (it was not when we were there - cited unreliable water quality, likely due to nearby industrial presence), or if there was a pool easily within reach for our son. However, the description was accurate and these gaps were not the owners fault... we just had to drive more than we had initially hoped we would.
I would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Christie and we're sorry to hear you had to drive to get to an area suitable for swimming. If one walks north for 3-4 minutes along the shoreline past the Frisbee golf grove, there are several areas with a grassy bank where the locals swim. For those wanting a sandy beach, there is a lovely small public beach (and not at all busy, well kept local secret) about a 2 minute drive away perfect for children, with swings, picnic tables, and a toilet facility.

Clean, tidy, and lovely location

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. The property was clean and well maintained with no issues. The location was perfect for a morning tea on the deck looking up at Knox Mountain Park, or easy access for an afternoon stroll along the trail to the top of the park overlooking Okanagan Lake and the city of Kelowna. Beautiful!

The kitchen had everything we needed to make a few meals when we were not busy noshing at some of the great restaurants in town. The bathroom was also very clean and fortunately had a washer and dryer for our hiking clothes!

The location is in a nice quiet area and a short stroll to downtown, though if grocery shopping you may want a car to haul the load.

There was some noticeable noise at times from the space below the Carriage House from the owners business (personal training?), but this was only during the day and quite reasonable. The evenings were nice and quiet and we slept soundly into the mornings.

The owners were very prompt to our inquiry on the property and operate the space and transactions professionally. We also enjoyed the keycode lock - a first for all of the VRBO's we have stayed at and appreciated not having to lug around (or lose) any keys!

As I said, we enjoyed our visit. We would recommend this space and will likely stay at this location on our next visit to town. Thanks!

Cheers
