About The Owner

Ed and Brenda purchased this property in 1991. We were apple orchardists until 2010 when we decided to take a different track and replant to grapes/vineyard. We thoroughly enjoy living in Oyama. It is a rural lifestyle, with great neighbors all around.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1991

Why The Owner chose Okanagan Valley

Oyama has so much to offer. We have heard many times from our visitors how much they enjoy the beauty of the Oyama area. It seemed natural to create a vacation rental to continue to share this great place with others. In 2006 we began the process of constructing our guesthouse. It has been a pleasure and a challenge to think of all the amenities that we would like to offer our guests. We want each guest to enjoy their stay to the maximum.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The choices are plenty at Grapewood Guesthouse. Beaches, hiking trails, shopping, tennis courts, boat rentals etc. are all nearby. Or, relaxing with a cool beverage on the shaded private patio on a hot day might just be your style.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful stay at Walnut Grove. The space is very functional and comfortable and the setting is beautiful! We had small kids with us who had so much fun playing outside in the open space and exploring some of the orchards and groves surrounding the property. The outdoor dining area and barbecue were a perfect way to relax and enjoy the weather and the scenery, especially after the kids were in bed. We also hosted our elderly grandfather, who is in a wheelchair, for a wonderful visit that got him outdoors and smiling. And our hosts at Walnut Grove were very helpful and incredibly friendly. Overall an excellent place that added so much to our family vacation. Highly recommended for any travelers!

Walnut Grove Grooves

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at Walnut Grove. We had traveled here for our daughter's wedding which was beautiful. Also did some hiking at Spion Kop. Lots of well marked trails and a great view from the tower. The unit contains everything we needed and more. Enjoyed some goodies from the bakery next door.

Easter get away in Oyama the Jewel of the Okanagan

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled from Saskatchewan to spend time with our children, who are based in BC, over Easter weekend and to attend a ceremony in Kelowna. We choose this property for its size, location, and the bakery next door none of which disappointed us. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Brenda who made us feel very welcome, showed us the unit, and had a pie ready for us to enjoy. Parking was not a problem for our 3 vehicles and is close to the unit.

The unit is well appointed with a smart lay-out making good use of the space available and a beautiful view of Wood Lake. Our party of 6 was easily accommodated. The property is very clean and well-maintained with all features and aspects in great shape. It was easy to feel at home quite quickly. The shower units are of a nice design and comfortable to use, really liked the in-floor heat in the bathrooms. The patio and grass area adjacent to the unit made for a wonderful setting for a BBQ with many friends that came over after the ceremony which was graciously allowed by Brenda. Her home is nearby so any problems or questions are quickly dealt with.

The bakery next door is a great convenience for tasty baking, frozen meals, jams, juice, dried fruit, etc. Just take them to the well equipped kitchen and enjoy around the cozy seating that is provided. This is definitely a place that we would recommend to friends or relatives, as a matter of fact we are planning to go back in June.

Beautiful place and wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here a few years ago in the summer. Everything was amazing. The view was inspiring, there was treats for us when we arrived, and they were gluten free so my celiac daughter was able to enjoy too. The water tasted so refreshing. Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The air conditioning was great in the high heat. There was room for a playpen in the room with the bunk beds. And last but not least the owners were very kind and helpful. I apologize for not writing a review sooner but know that we think about your place all the time and we have recommended it to everyone who will listen to us. We hope to be back again one day.
