People love the blue room in this 1946 bungalow. The comfortable queen sized bed with reading lights, vintage chest of drawers is in a quiet, clean, colorful room with sky blue walls. 15 minutes walk from the stunning Knox Mountain Park with lake views. Lovely feeling of stepping into a calmer past with all of imperfections and sense of character that come with a heritage home. No children.

You will not find another host with as much experience and as many positive reviews in all of Kelowna.

Eignin
Go back in time in this 1946 small houses; to a quiet and calm neighbourhood; to the magic of a time when gardens showed the personality of the owners.

Step in the door and the experience begins. Bright color, heritage furniture, a book shelf full of self help and spiritual books for your use. Colorful walls are hung with the works of the artist owner.

People describe it as "quaint", "a sanctuary" and "adorable". In season roses line the front yard and the walk way to the house has welcoming lavender on both sides.

Staðsetning

Kelowna, British Columbia, Kanada

The North End of the city is a quiet village. It was built from 1946 to 1950 for the returning war veterans. It housed the mostly Italian workers who ran the fruit packing factory, the mill and was a close knit community. Friday the rugs were rolled back and the house with the upright piano became a community dance hall. Children and older people danced with parents. Exhausted children were put to sleep on the stairs and upstairs floors. It was a time of interaction and social closeness.

Once an English teacher now I am an artist, writer and tutor. Those who stay in my house described it as a retreat and a healing place. The house is pet free and quiet. Buddhist studies have been a focus in my life for several years. I am a counsellor with vast experience in mindfulness practice and behavioural studies. I hold three university degrees and have begun work on a fourth. My interests are in all aspects of creative expression, politics, urban culture and personal development. I have been to London, Paris, Barcelona, Florence, Rome and up the Amazon in Peru. Most of my time is spent creating art or poetry. I do various poetry performances around Kelowna. If you are interested in learning about the culture scene in Kelowna, come stay with me. I am fascinated by contemporary culture and love meeting people from around the world.
