About Shirley Debons

I have many fond memories of my summers in Kelowna from a young girl onward as my much older sister brought up her family here of three boys who were my peers. I pined to have a place of my own one day to continue those memories of continual warm sunny days, the awesome lake, leisurely lifestyle coupled with physical fitness. I climb Knox Mountain often, ride my mountain bike through the 15 trails offered in this area, and love the beaches. Kelowna has grown up considerably with 5 star restaurants abound and it now has more than 402 wineries to explore!

Shirley Debons purchased this condo in 2010

Why Shirley Debons chose North End

This location has to be one of the most stellar in Kelowna. The suite looks onto the beauty of the lake and the mountain, all of which commands your view from whichever room you're in. It has a fully functional and splendid clubhouse. You can walk absolutely anywhere due to boardwalk access across the street, and at the end of the street is the cultural district with many excellent eateries and restaurants. There's a vibrant area to explore in one direction and an extremely peaceful one in the opposite direction. There are many parks throughout this area.

What makes this condo unique

You are in the centre of everything--Museums, live theatre, boardwalk, marina, restaurants, lake, beach, coupled with Nature so close with Rotary Marsh across the little wooden bridge, Knox Mountain towering nearby beckoning you to climb it again and the glistening of the lake with mountains on either side of it too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Shirley!!!



We LOVE your place:)))))) I can see why you selected this particular suite! We have been eating our way through Kelowna it seems--and the wines are divine. We hit one of your recommendations for dinner last night--delish: Waterfront Wines.



Cactus Cafe at the Kelowna Yacht Club was our opening meal on Thursday night--that was fabulous. Earls provided a great scenic lunch today after we picked up our race packet.



Heading out of here at 5:30 am to catch the bus at the Delta Grand for our big event--so excited to see the wonderful vineyards and orchards for the first half of the race and then into Kelowna along the lakeshore.



We visited Mission Hill, Kalala, Quail's Gate, and Little Straw. We must return to dine at both Mission Hill and Quail's Gate. We still want to kayak, golf, bike, and run (more!). I would welcome a second week right now!!! All great signs pointing to a return to the Okanagan.



Again--great space for relaxation and rejuvenation! Canadian hospitality has knocked our socks off!

Car: not necessary

There are 402 wineries in the Okanagan and counting! My property is close to at least fifteen in the immediate area including Mission Hill and Quail's Gate. Both of these wineries have stellar cellars and restaurants with patio seating and breathtaking views.

Disappointing experience

  • 2 of 5

The owner sent us a confrontational email two weeks after our stay, accusing us of not taking care of the condo or following protocol. This is completely untrue. We were charged $60 to check-out early and were promised two parking passes but only received one. Additionally, the pool was also closed for two days for maintenance. As an FYI, the property is located beside a 24/7 sawmill.

Owner's Response: The next guest who followed LL brought to my attention that the bathroom had broken parts to it. My long term concierge V had returned the security deposit to LL at departure because LL had failed to tell her it was broken. When I received the next guest's comment, I emailed LL to ask her the exact following words: "if she [LL] could help me understand what had occurred" and I received an angry email confronting me. When LL sent me a second confrontational email I deleted it after reading the first sentence. LL signed and agreed in the lease that she would pay a $60 charge to and for V if a much earlier time or later time for arrival/departure was required. When LL telephoned me to change the departure time I reminded her of the lease requirement. She said she had no problem with it. V arrived early Saturday morning to accommodate LL's request and LL told V that she did not have the money to pay her. V had to ask three times for the agreed upon charge before LL gave it to her. The second parking pass was for 24 hour guest parking only. On Sunday, I texted LL the free parking areas within a half a block radius for her. I delivered it to LL early Monday morning and reminded her of the parking restrictions. In the first of her emails LL queried and intimated her concern that her grandchildren might not be accepted at the pool and I quickly advised her that many families enjoyed the pool and that some of those families wrote reviews advising me of their positive experience of the many amenities that were offered at Waterscapes. The pool was to have been painted the week prior and all residents were advised that it would be ready for June 30th. Residents were then advised on June 30th that a complication had occurred but that the pool would be ready for July 2nd. I kept LL updated all of Sunday by text and at 4:23 PM Sunday, July 2nd was able to confirm that I had just spoken to Chris, the Maintenance Manager, and Sherri, who controlled the chemical balance in the pool, that the newly filled water was almost to the "skimmer line" and "to get ready for all of her family to dive in." The sawmill is shown in my photos that accompany my site. It has been there for 85 years, has been an "icon" for many, and does not operate 24/7. It operates depending on the wood that is ordered. Others love the scent of the wood and love watching the deer and their babies that walk in front of the sawmill where the estuary and the bird sanctuary skirts the mill.

Our stay at Shirley's condo in Kelowna was outstanding. Everything was prepared well and made easy for our stay. Instruction on how to get into the unit and find parking were sent ahead of our arrival. Shirley made sure that you have her phone numbers in case anything goes wrong. Violetta was helpful as well and very nice.

Fully equipped kitchen, the beds were very comfy, a big balcony with sofas and a barbecue.

Can't say enough about this location, walking distance to Downtown Marina Kelowna with Cactus Club and Yacht Club on the shore, beach, playground and great restaurants, stores, liquor store, coffee shops nearby. More than enough space for the 4 of us. Beautiful place to say, great amenities, awesome, clean heated pool & two hot tubs, well equipped gym, quiet and cozy place with an amazing view. This couldn't have been a better location! If you want a great no-hassle place to stay in Kelowna, don't pass this place up - STAY HERE!

Overall a great experience and we would definitely stay here again.

Great location,

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location, close to everything. Beautiful big windows through out. Nice floor plan and great deck! The view however is mostly of a very large mill which runs 24hrs a day and is noisy. Which is not accurately shown in the pictures. Other than that a great place.

Amazing time in Kelowna

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 2 nights in Kelowna and stayed in this beautiful fully equipped condo. When you walk in to the condo, you get amazed and impressed by the awesome lake view in front of you which can be seen easily through giant windows and also the glamorous balcony. I liked everything about this condo and I hope I can return to Kelowna and stay here again very soon.

I have to thank my host (shirley) who was very kind, generous and lovely to us although she was on vacation and I did not have a chance to meet her in person. Hope I see her next time that she will be hosting us.

Regards,

Ehsan

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Our family's had a great experience renting this condo. It is so close to everything and great for just strolling out the front doors to cruise the waterfront. The condo is new and has everything 2 couples need to be comfortable. The view is great and the pool and amenities are also beautiful. Our kids are 12 and 10 and they had a blast. What made it really relaxing was dealing with Shirley the owner. She takes an honest interest in her guests and really wants families to have fun. We would rent it again for sure Thanks Shirley.

Perfect view of Lake Okanagan

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 7 days in this beautiful condo on Lake Okanagan. This is a very bright corner unit that is well maintained. The apartment offers magnificent views of the lake and also the mountains. It would be hard to find a more beautiful location and it is perfect for a relaxing holiday. We walked to the downtown area for shopping or cultural events within minutes. We also walked the boardwalk (literally across the street) that extends all along the lake and far beyond.

It was always a pleasure to return to this beautiful vacation condo and sit on the patio to take in the magic of the view. We hope to return here again soon.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind comments of appreciation. I am pleased you discovered the tranquility of the balcony that exudes Nature's quiet rather than those units facing the bridge. I regret that was I unable to reserve the date that you requested this year due to it already being booked; however, I look forward to seeing you next year! Shirley
