This lovely upper carriage house suite has a private entrance from the garden. Separate bed-sitting room with new memory foam futon, kitchen and full bath.

Long term stays from September to April are welcome.

Perfect for one or two people! Located in downtown Kelowna. Walk to beaches, theatre, and restaurants.

The space

You'll love having your own carriage house suite (studio or bachelor size) in walking distance (15 minutes) to downtown Kelowna and the beaches there.

Above the garage in our nearly-new downtown Kelowna home, this suite is quite charming and very comfortable. Bed-sitting room with pull-out double comfy spring-loaded futon, and loveseat. Kitchen with stove and microwave, full-size fridge, toaster, kettle. All dishes and cookware, bedding, towels. Four piece bath. Hardwood floors. Air conditioning.

Guest access

Enjoy the garden courtyard with shade and patio set.

Laundry can be done in our home, which is across the courtyard, for a $5/load fee.

Interaction with guests

Since this is a self-contained suite, we typically welcome our guests and leave them alone. But we're always happy to share a cup of tea, tell you about Kelowna and learn about you and your interests. We also love to talk about books and movies! JoAnne is a history buff and follows politics. Paddy studies brain enhancement, meditation, and loves to make yummy food, Paleo style.

Other things to note

One no-charge, private, 45 minute, personally guided introduction to mindfulness meditation is available to guests who request it, if Paddy is home during your visit. You must specifically request it because we will not otherwise bring it up.

It is important that our guests are quiet as we respect our neighbour's right to quiet. So no loud music please and only quiet conversations on the deck in the evenings.

Netflix is included.

Free parking on the street.

We appreciate peace and quiet and welcome guests who enjoy this too. No drugs and moderate drinkers only. No smoking. No pets. No entertaining in the suite. Thank you for making sure you are a good fit for our lovely suite!

We take our shoes off at the door.

Kitchen use requires that you do your dishes and leave everything as you find it.

This is a duplexed suite, with the other side owned by our neighbour. There ere may be some sound transfer between the kitchen in this suite and the kitchen in the adjoining suite, so it is important to keep voices at a 'normal' level and music relatively quiet. The person who lives in the adjacent suite is very pleasant and quiet and we have had no complaints. We want to be good neighbours and keep it that way from our side.

This suite is above our garage so you will occasionally hear the garage door opening.

Free street parking, but none on our actual property.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - About 12 stairs up to the suite.

Lovely stay, kind couple who are very interested in people. They want to do everything for you. Perfect place for somebody on your own, our with two people. They kindly invited me into their home for dinner.

This place is a gem- perfectly centrally located, walking distance to the grocery store, walking distance to downtown and the waterfront, and Paddy gives attention to detail - the apartment is cozy, well laid out- perfect for two. It is well equiped for cooking (which we like to do). The hosts are exceptional people- not only do they make your stay seamless and comfortable, but are wonderful people to share a cuppa tea with. We will be back!

Paddy and Joe were very friendly. My one month stay was comfortable and quiet. The space works well for a student or professional.

Paddy and her partner were my favorite Air BnB stay ever! They are incredibly welcoming, compassionate and lovely to get to know. The suite is perfect and has everything you could ever need. Walkable to downtown and very well located for anything Kelowna offers. They are super accommodating and able to provide information on anything you could ever need. They had me to dinner one night and it was a total highlight. I will be back!

This was our second stay with Paddy and Joanne having stayed in their 'private room' prior to moving into the carriage house. The property is well appointed and very comfortable. We were in town for a few eels for business and the carriage house was the perfect home away from home. It's a short walk to downtown and the lake, although I'm not sure about wandering around after dark. Our hosts were lovely people and most obliging. Would highly recommend the property.

We had a fantastic month at Paddy and Jo's place! They are the kindest of hosts and could not speak more highly of them. The apartment was absolutely perfect for our needs and we felt more than at home there. The apartment has everything that you could desire and is in a perfect location for accessing all parts of Kelowna. All in all a wonderful experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Paddy's & Jo's! They were both extreamly gracious hosts! The Private Bachelor Suite was wonderfully furnished and comfortable! The place was spotless, the cleanest AirBnB I've ever seen! I was invited for a wonderful meal, there was no pressure had I decided to decline. They are beautiful people & made my stay most enjoyable.
