About Laurinda Kalawarny

My husband and I, enjoy meeting people and have enjoyed opening our home to people so that they may enjoy the beauty, fun and experience what the Okanagan has to offer, Kelowna vast wineries, bring people from around the world.. we have chosen to rent out our home as a Vacation Rental, so that our guest can enjoy the beauty and experience all the Okanagan has to offer.

Laurinda Kalawarny purchased this house in 2007

Why Laurinda Kalawarny chose Kelowna

My family came to the Okanagan in 1911, and I enjoy hearing and seeing the history the Okanagan has to offer from the lake freezing over in 1952, the Orchards, the smells of the lake and the cherry blossoms and knowing that our family land is know an aspiring vineyard in the North Okanagan, the love and memories the Okanagan Valley has given to myself and family is endless

What makes this house unique

We chose this home for it's great location, knowing we where wanting to open a Bed and Breakfast, it was the perfect home, and now opening the house as a full Vacation Rental. As we drive through the gates the serenity of our home and the quietness of the back yard, and being across from an exciting popular Beach, we new this was the place that people could call home and have a great vacation, close to everything.

Boyce Gyro Beach By The Lake
average rating of 4.428571 based on 7 reviews

Great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at Boyce Gyro Beach by the Lake for 4 nights with a group of 15 women.

There was plenty of room to sleep. The bedrooms were great.

The house was very clean. Yard was kept immaculate by the owner. Backyard was very private with lots of seating for everyone.

Hot tub had fresh water in it when we got there.

Handy to shopping, and places to eat

I would recommend this home for any large group. Would rent it again!!

Family Members' Home Base for Wedding - Central Location - Quality Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

This property has two key advantages - one more bathroom than the other places with the same number of bedrooms and its central location. It supported my parents, my brother and his family, and friends, totaling 12 people. We were close to everything, including the wedding location.

I suggest two improvements to help guests sleep better. (1) The dishwasher was beeping at night and the beeping disturbed some of our slumbers. Please teach guests how to turn off the dishwasher beeper or disable the beeper during rental period. (2) The air conditioner was programmed turn off at night during our stay in the last week of July when the temperature was in the 90's Fahrenheit. We were too hot in the middle of the night which made sleep difficult. Perhaps instead of shutting the ac completely off at night during the hottest weeks, perhaps it could still run a little longer than usual by a few more hours.

Excellent location and beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Our combined families spent a week at Boyce Gyro Beach by the Lake. The location was perfect - across the street from the beach and walking distance to other beaches, marina, restaurants and shopping. The house was beautifully decorated, the kitchen fully stocks and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed many dinners on the outdoor deck and our kids enjoyed the hot tub in between beach excursions.

The street noise from Lakeshore Road was bothersome at night for the rooms facing the street but the other rooms were fine for noise.

Excellent property.

  • 4 of 5


The accommodation was excellent. It had everything we needed in terms of furnishing, kitchen and amenities. The property was very clean and well maintained. Absolutely would recommend this property to our friends and family.

Very good proximity to the beach and a short hop to downtown. Will definitely look for the property for the next time we golf in Kelowna.

Girls Stagette weekend

  • 5 of 5

11 of is girls just finished our weekend up here. The house was amazing, even better in person. There was so much space, the rooms are huge, the place was very clean and smelled clean, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. This property was in a great location, right across the street from the beach and about a 7 min cab ride into the downtown area and about a 15 min wall to other local restaurants. We were all very happy with this accommodation and I don't think you could find a better property with all of the extras. The owners are very nice, helpful easy-going people. We would highly recommend this place and hope to be back soon!

Exceptionally clean and well maintained house in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This property lives up to its expectations and then some. I took a U16 girls soccer team to Kelowna and this house proved to be a perfect match for us. We were kitty corner to the beach and a short walk to the grocery store, ice cream store and lots of little boutique shops. The house was also conveniently located for all our games.

The layout was excellent for something like this as the top floor slept 10 of our girls with plenty of room for them and then we had the next floor down for the chaperones. The team didn't want to leave at the end of the weekend.

Laurinda and Darren were there to help with any questions and the weekend went with out a hitch. I would definitely use this house again and wouldn't hesitate recommending it for anyone else with a large group.

Thanks so much for such a memorable weekend.
