About Christine Work

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.

Why Christine Work chose Okanagan Valley

It has an ideal aspect, catching the early morning sunrise, and plenty of shade in the hot afternoons. It was our summer kitchen when we had our family, but now that they are all grown, we wanted to repurpose the space downstairs as another home away from home for visitors to the wine capital of Canada

What makes this apartment unique

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 ten 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

At the last minute we found this wonderful B&B with loveliest people. We've enjoyed every minute of the great atmosphere and hospitality. We're looking forward for next time we'll come over.

A Sweet Suite!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed three wonderful nights at this cute basement suite in Oliver, a stones throw from vineyards and

gorgeous orchards! Russell and Christine made us feel very comfortable and welcome in their home. The

suite is equipped with anything one would need for a few days or months stay. A wonderfully comfortable bed

greets you for many comfy sleeps. We want to come back.....longer next time!

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely suite to rent for our three days in Oliver. Our hosts thought of everything and paid such attention to the details in order to provide the best for us! The outside patio is private and a great place to relax or eat outdoors. We enjoyed the use of the hot tub to relax with our morning coffee. We also appreciated the use of the bikes for exploring the trails along the river. The suite was clean, spacious, fully equipped and very comfortable. Thanks, Russell and Christine, for being so friendly, helpful and welcoming!

'Absolutely' the best

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Russell & Christine's suite. We took our friends and there was plenty of room and privacy for 4. A central location to visit the wonderful wineries in the area. The hot tub is great. We will definately visit again.

Time to relax in wine country!

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Russell and Christine for being such wonderful hosts. Our stay in Oliver with you was truly a relaxing escape into wine country! Bikes to ride to wineries, BBQ to grill up dinner and hot tub to relax in. Perfect! We were surprised with fresh veggies from the garden and received great recommendations on what food to get and winery routes. We will be back! :)
