Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

John was a warm and wonderful host, the house was impeccably clean and perched up on a hill with an incredible view of the valley. A combination of comfortable beds and the sound of the water running in the stream behind made helped us all sleep well. I agree and support the other 9 reviews, 5 star without a doubt. I can not wait to come back for an annual trip!

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented John's house for a few nights, travelling with my mother and my sister. The house was beautiful - spacious, comfortable, with a well-laid out kitchen, nice beds, cool with the air conditioning, and stocked with board games. The saltwater pool is such a treat after a hot day touring the area. A babbling brook runs next to the house. A fifteen minute drive above Oliver's main street, it's located next to the old Fairview townsite, well worth wandering over to read the information boards and get a sense of the area's history. The quiet roads around the house are great for strolls and offer incredible views of the valley. John is cheerful and attentive without being intrusive.

It was a comfortable home for four adults, but would also be perfect for a family with kids.

We loved the place so much, we are already planning how soon we can return. It would be wonderfully cozy in the winter, too!

Great Base for Wine Tasting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here, and are currently planning our next visit. The house is spotlessly clean, with a spectacular view of the valley, and beautiful grounds. John is a great landlord, very informative, and fun to visit with. We stayed here with another couple, and we had plenty of room to spread out. Lots of wineries within 5 minutes of the house, and yummy restaurants, too. We loved the privacy, and peaceful out-of-town location. Deer and quail visited often. Soothing brook in the can hear it when the windows are open. Definitely recommend this house to anyone. Everything you need is here...just unpack and enjoy!

A Wonderful family vacation year after year

  • 5 of 5

This place is becoming a yearly tradition for my family and I because it is such a great place to relax and enjoy BC summer. The house and amenities are top notch, everything is spotless and so comfortable. We have two small children; 1 and 4 and they play in the pool all day or explore the gorgeous yard front and back. The location is amazing- perched on the top of a hill overlooking orchards and grape vines and so quiet and peaceful. You are also minutes from 15-20 different wineries with exceptional wines and tasting facilities. It's a great place to share with another family or come on your own! I wish we could rent it all summer ling. See you next year Jon.

Simply Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, John, for a most PERFECT holiday! The photos do not do your beautiful home justice!

All eight of us ladies were able to make our stay our own vacation, which is exactly what we wanted - to be together somewhere beautiful, but to enjoy ourselves in whichever way suited us best. All of us were in complete awe when we arrived at the property, and it took us a good day to really take it all in! We loved the location - how close it is to the wineries in Oliver and OK Falls, and to town, but how far away you feel from it all! The accommodations are spotless and very comfortable, the views are terrific, and the amenities are outstanding! It is a great place to relax and/or have fun! The hospitality was also terrific. (We especially enjoyed the pool boy and the gardener! ha!) The only recommendation that we did come up with was that some non-stick cookware would have been useful/appreciated to help in the fight against the finicky stove top! But really, between eight women, if that's our only complaint, that's pretty impressive! We all absolutely LOVED it, and were sad to leave!!! We have already discussed a "do over", and I have recommended your beautiful home to other friends and family as well. I am absolutely looking forward to my next stay!!

Thank you again - to sum it up, it was simply fabulous!!

Wine, laugher and a break from the hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

Thank you John for a lovely weekend!

Traveling as a group of 5 colleagues, your home offered the perfect launching point for wine tasting, pool side lounging, excellent dining experiences and some much loved R&R.

The homes description is modest relative to what we were delighted to experience: fantastic yard with bocce balls available, lots of lounge chairs around the pool and an outdoor dining table. Open kitchen, dining and living area with a large TV and great movie selections! Games, movies and a piano for those that are musically inclined. Its the little touches that make any vacation home a relaxing retreat, and this home has them all!

The home is well maintained and very clean. John is a fantastic host, ensuring we had everything we needed, making recommendations for running routes, dining options and wineries near by. (I think he would have offered a fine golf course too!)

The central location is just a few minutes from downtown Oliver. Central location to start from when headed to wineries from Osoyoos to OK Falls (Favorites were Blue Mountain Vineyard and See Ya Later Ranch).

Looking at availability for a follow-up trip with family to enjoy this lovely property again.
