Best of both worlds, very close to the city & yet privately located on the pristine Kootenay Lake,forested, private sandy beach & spectacular views. Super close to the downtown of Nelson, a funky & dynamic city centre with brewpubs, coffee shops, restaurants, parks, shopping. Skiing within a short 25 mins with the best powder skiing!! Our place is amazing because of the perfect location & peacefulness. Our space is great for couples, small families, adventurers & business travelers.

We just loved this place in Nelson - by the lake on its own private beach. Cabin was great and we wished we could have stayed longer. On our trip round Western Canada for a month, this has been our favourite Airbnb. Karen was lovely and made us very welcome. Definitely recommended.

Great place in an amazing location - right on the lake and facing the mountains. Karen was a terrific host as well - very friendly but not at all intrusive. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay.

Wow what a lovely stay we had at the beach house. Karen is a great hostess and took time for a chat and to answer our questions. We also had use of the family's paddle boards to explore the lake just at the end of the garden. Beautiful location, very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Thanks karen

Three of us stayed here for a couple of nights in early September and had a really lovely time. The indoor space is funky with a super comfortable bed, great shower, and everything you need. The outside space is peaceful and beautiful. We sat on the patio area evenings to chill, and loved the private beach to relax and have fun making use of the paddle boards too. It was lovely to meet Karen and John who were friendly and made us feel very welcome giving advice about the area and beyond. Communication great, check in a breeze. We enjoyed the space so much we didn't have enough time to look around Nelson - which is a cool place to visit. We had a perfect AirBnB experience. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks Karen and John for sharing your home - a special place.

We loved staying at Karen and John's. Their place is well designed and very comfortable. The beach was amazing and use of the SUP's was a highlight. One of my favorite airbnb experiences! I'll definitely come back.

Magic Location with the Most Gracious Hosts! Our little tribe fell in love with Nelson, the little beach house, and the gorgeous private beach. The place is spotless, stylish, and fun! Karen and John were unfailingly hospitable and gracious, and assisted us without hesitation to make our stay as comfortable as possible with little ones. Dream location!

What is not to love about Karen and johns place? The setting is utterly idyllic on the lake with private beach access, Karen and John make you feel right at home, or give you space, whatever you are after. We used the SUP boards and had an awesome day on the beach/lake. There isn't much need to go anywhere if you are just into relaxing. The BBQ is on hand and there is everything you can think of in the unit including plenty activities for kids if you have them. Karen was a mine of information on hikes and places to go and gave us several tips. Literally can't rave about this place enough. We had an excellent time and would recommend staying if you can.

My family & I moved to Nelson to live in this amazing & vibrant ski town! John is from the east coast and I am from the West coast of BC. After living in many cities in BC, we decided to make Nelson our home & we LOVE it here! I really feel it is one of the best Canadian places to live & to visit! We are an active family making great adventures happen with travel, friends & the outdoors. I love traveling, skiing, mountain biking, great design & great food!
Meeting interesting & diverse people from around the world has been wonderful! Look forward to meeting you!
