Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Kelowna and staying at Cove of Sand with my family almost every year of my life...25 years. I can not even describe the beauty and comfort of this place. It's truly paradise. I spent the summers of my childhood building sandcastles on the private beach, playing ball with my dad on the expansive green lawns always accented with flowers, and sitting on the dock with my brother looking for fish. I have made many life long friendships with people I met here. The lodgings here are all well furnished and homey - they cover all sorts of family sizes and needs. Mary Ann has made us feel like part of the family which, along with everything else, has brought us back year after year. Now, as a university student, I always try and take even a few days off each summer to come back - knowing Ill always find serenity, good conversation and entertainment (boat rentals a few doors down, easy access to downtown, a creek nearby to float down, in the heart of wine country).

Great for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the second year in a row. We can't say enough good things about the location of this fantastic property. The beautiful private beach is second to none, and having a big lawn to play on is a huge bonus. The kids made good use of the pier for fishing and took out the old canoe a few times for a pleasant paddle around the shores. The house suited us well, as did the cottage last year. Mary Ann is a respectful and friendly host. We'll be coming their again next year.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 that have been coming to Cove of Sand yearly since the summer of 2008. When I found this gem on the internet I fell in love with the beach pictures. My husband was pleasantly surprised as we arrived for the first time to find that the pictures lived up to our expectations. It is so handy, being right in Lower Mission, close to shopping and groceries, yet amazingly peaceful (a private beach on a no- thru- way street.) I can jog on the creek walkways close by or to Starbucks. Mary Ann has the best beach in Kelowna, soft white sand on the beach and into the water, great for swimming and playing on the beach. Mary Ann takes really good care of us and treats us like family. We always feel relaxed and refreshed after our stay. We unwind on the beach all day and barbeque in the evenings. We love to enjoy a glass of wine on the beach in the twilight before turning in for the night. When our kids were young, it was so convenient to have our suite so close to the beach. The kids could slip into the suite for a snack during the day, and we could put them to bed at night while still enjoying a quiet visit on the beach in the evening, only steps away. Even now, my kids look forward to our trip to Cove of Sand all year...and they are now teenagers. It is a great place to recharge as a family with beautiful views, beautiful beach, comfortable living quarters with all of the necessary conveniences, our own patio space and barbeque, and great hosting from Mary Ann! It is the highlight of our year. Can't wait to go next summer!

Kelowna Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our Family have been coming to Mary Ann's beautiful oasis for many years! It is a place of relaxation and rejuvenation. That picture you see on the ad is the exact view I see when I make my way down to the edge of the beach with my coffee in the morning. Mary Ann takes pride in her grounds and like to share the beauty with her paying guests. She takes the umbrellas down at night so they don't get ripped by the wind and every morning they are up, the beach is raked and dry cushions are awaiting! She also does a mid week mini clean (15 mins max) with fresh towels and quick vac and mop. It is like being pampered in your own home. We love to watch the families with small children enjoy the sand and watch Mary Ann feed the ducks that come back every year. This is a wonderful quiet place to vacation. Close to wineries etc. Parking is at a premium so it is very nice to know there is parking on the grounds reserved for paying guests. We would highly recommend vacationing at the Cove of Sand.

Very dissapointed

  • 1 of 5

Our family of 12 rented this lovely place for a week in August 2014. The grounds are lovely as is the home. The beachfront and water were beautiful. We were unprepared for the owner, Mary Ann's constant presence. She was asking us to pick items up that were left on the ground. Half way through the vacation, 7 of us had to leave and terminate our vacation as our homes were being evacuated because of a forest fire leaving only 5 members of our family to vacation. Mary Ann was upset when my remaining family members had guests over, and was rude to them (and guests were there for only a few hours on 3 different occasions). We arrived on Saturday, and had to vacate the house on Tuesday so Mary Ann could clean it for 3 hours, which was difficult to do with children. The house had a laundry room that Mary Ann used and she was often present in the home. She also stayed in a suite on the grounds, sharing the same outdoor area. Her presence made us less relaxed than we wanted to be. Lovely home, lovely grounds....but a difficult vacation because of the owner's expectations and presence.

I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: In response to this review, several days ago after the family arrived, a family member approached me to say how upset the family was that I was living on the property. The property being 1/2 acres of beach, lawns, trees, and flowers, there's a daily need for care and attention in order to provide comfort and beauty for the guest. In regards to your comments about the three hours spent cleaning - for weekly guests, we always provide mid-week cleaning. The laundry room is shared by the main house and suite guests, and there is a private exterior door for my use. I asked the guests to pick up their personal possessions from the ground because I was concerned about damage to their belongings from the nightly sprinkler system. Also, without notification to me, a large number of other friends and family members arrived with no consideration to the other paying tourist family occupying the guest cottage. I'm more than happy to rent out to large families, but I do require the exact number of paying guests that will be occupying the property. Best wishes, Mary Ann

Cove of Sand is located on the lakefront and a short drive from downtown. From our first enquiry our host Mary Ann was prompt answering our requests and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. We stayed in the 1 bedroom cottage, lovely lake view and well maintained gardens. Walking distance to marina and waterfront restaurant. Kelowna is a beautiful town, we hope to return to Cove of Sand one day.
