We loved everything about this property and can't wait to come back! It was clean, well maintained, great location and Bob and Wendy are very friendly and helpful with restaurant and activity recommendations. We have two small children (5 and 1.5) and neither of them woke from the train when it passed through during the night. Bob and Wendy have thought of everything a family with kids might need which is so helpful when trying to pack (high chair, booster chair, playpen, kids life jackets, plastic kiddie pool). We loved eating meals on the decks, kayaking and spending the days on our private beach. No doubts that this will become an annual family vacation for us!
Thank you, Bob and Wendy, for another amazing week in your vacation rental home. For the third year in a row my husband and I brought my parents and enjoyed your property as a base to explore the Nelson area. We spent hours on the beach, swimming, kayaking and just relaxing with our chairs in the water. Your property is fully equipped and absolutely immaculate!! Having a full bath on each floor is great too. Thank you as well for taking the time each year to let us know about new things to do in the valley (We all had a blast on the new zip line!!) Our friends who came over for dinner on our last evening were so impressed with your home, location and view that they will also be calling to book a week or two for next summer. You two are natural hosts and we truly appreciate your kindness and generosity!!! See you next summer!!!
We'd like to thank Bob and Wendy for yet another wonderful vacation on Kootenay lake. It was our eighth consecutive summer holiday in Bealby House. We started coming when our twins were not quite one years old. The house is ideal for families, very comfortably equipped so we can move right in and start enjoying ourselves. Kids love to kayak and swim out to the dock and watch for trains. Bob, Wendy and surrounding neighbours are so helpful with suggestions for kid-friendly activities and restaurants. We didn't hesitate to recommend this place to our friends, and now they are repeat customers as well! Bob and Wendy clearly take pride in their vacation house, and enjoy sharing their piece of paradise with young families.
This beach house was absolutely fantastic! The house is in a beautiful setting overlooking the lake, just steps away from a private beach suitable for young children and those who want to swim out to the floating raft. The premises are well kept with trees, bushes and a variety of grasses. It is within minutes of shopping and yet on a very quiet dead end street, perfect for chilling out. The amenities of this house were super. The beds were comfortable and all linens and towels were of high quality. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped for all basic cooking needs. It was a pleasure cooking in the kitchen or barbecuing on one of the decks. The owners were welcoming and very helpful when there was a minor power outage. We would highly recommend this vacation property for anyone who needs a relaxing vacation.
House itself was entirely adequate. However, there is only one real bedroom, the twin bedroom off of the main living room. Very noisy of course because directly off of the main room. The "bedroom" upstairs is actually a loft so very bright and noisy as well. Not an ideal set up for families at all, I ended up sleeping in the walk-in closet upstairs with the baby as it was the only place that could be made dark and quiet enough for him to sleep.
Sleep was an issue as every night/early am the train (less than a block away! and not disclosed to us!!!) would let loose a thunderous blare that woke our baby screaming every night. The train was so close it shook the house and when the horn went off you couldn't hear yourself speak. Not cool, so sneaky not to mention it! We would have chosen another rental had we been told about the train.
From day one we had serious issues with the owners, who were condescending, passive-aggressive and just plain rude. When we called to ask about the satellite (not working) we were rudely referred to the directions. It was up to us to figure out that nothing was even connected! They didn't offer to come help us with that, and so I spent about two hours trying to figure out how to hook everything up so we had satellite and dvd. That is not the client's responsibility!
The downstairs toilet then clogged. When we told the owners about that they implied over and over that somehow we were responsible and must have put something down the toilet (we didn't of course). So we spend a good hour pulling poop out of the toilet. No apology for the inconvenience and no thank you for fixing their problem.
On the last day we ran out of water in the cooler (tap water not drinkable) and when we let them know they directed us to a grocery store in town where he had water paid for but we had to pick up. Again, that's not the client's responsibility! If the tap water is not drinkable, you need to keep that bottled water stocked for your guests.
They also requested several times that we stay off their side of the beach (tell that to a 2 year old!). The guest house has a small rocky beach and their home has the large sandy beach. That speaks volumes I think to the type of people they are. Not friendly and welcoming to guests but looking to make a profit.
All in all, Bob and particularly Wendy were rude rude rude! We have stayed at over a dozen vrbo's and own properties ourselves and have never had such a bad experience.
