Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Graeme and Helga are super hosts and there home is fantastic. Graeme is a true gentleman and suggested we stay another day as the winter conditions on the highways was very bad, just the thought that he was concerned about us travelling in those conditions shows the kind of person he is. We would definitely stay again. Gail and Roger Hall Kelowna B.C.

Rest, Relax, Read & Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

The reviews before us were not wrong! This place is a little slice of heaven! Perfectly located just a short walk to the town & the beach. The house itself is amazing! Has everything you would ever want and then some!! This time of year the fireplace was a very cozy touch to have. The most amazing part are the Hosts! Graeme & Helga are amazing! They had the place all decorated for Christmas, complete with a small tree! We had read about Helga's famous chocolate chip cookies, which were delivered to us still warm and they did not disappoint! Graeme is quiet the fellow; funny, charming and engaging, very helpful with any need you might have. Helga & Graeme were so gracious, it was like visiting friends. We are already planning a trip back in the summer to enjoy the beautiful deck and furniture!

A home away from home. Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Graeme and Helga have thought of everything for the perfect getaway. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. It was wonderful to have plastic food wrap, salt, oil, and spices on hand. We were relieved to find beach towels too as we did not have room to pack any. Their binoculars were a treat to use on the perfect deck with a great view.

They were friendly and very helpful making our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Fabulous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Superb location, beautiful view with easy access to promenade. The kitchen was very well equipped , and enough food provided for many breakfasts. Helga's home made cookies were a real treat! The most positive part was Graeme and Helga being very flexible , accommodating and helpful in many situations, they are amazing hosts. I would like to return and most certainly would recommend this place to others.

About Graeme and Helga Farquharson

We have lived in White Rock since 1985 and are local business people. Helga has been a realtor since 1977 and Graeme a travel consultant since 1986. In 2010 our nest became empty so we are sharing our unique setting.

Graeme and Helga Farquharson purchased this house in 1988

Why Graeme and Helga Farquharson chose White Rock

Our home backs onto a 26 acre nature park with over three miles of hiking trails and year round streams. Many different species of birds as well as wild rabbits, racoons and squirrels roam the area and frequently visit our feeders. The view is ever changing.

What makes this house unique

We love to sit and watch the sail boats in the bay or the kite surfers at play. Paddle boards are the latest rage here as well as the kayak school in the evenings. There is always something to see.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for you hospitality. This suite- so well appointed, open and spacious, cozy and welcoming was just what we needed during the trials of the last week.

Your kindness, baking cookies, card and the loan of your printer, were well beyond expectations of a host. Even Graeme's jokes were some joy in the midst of sadness.

We wish you all the best with your repairs.

These acts of human kindness especially when we are so far away from our own supports made the week bearable

With gratitude
