Our lovely lower suite in our nearly-new downtown Kelowna home is charming and very comfortable.. Guests love it! Full-size bedroom with comfy queen bed. Four-piece bath. Living room with pull out double-size sofa, desk, fireplace and large windows.

Private entrance from the garden, with a patio to enjoy in the good weather.

Nice neighbourhood with a mix of newer and older homes. You can walk everywhere, see below for details.

The space

A recent guest who has stayed often in airbnb suites commented on the personal touches to our space, including art from our personal collection and quality furniture. This suite is truly spacious, with lots of natural light and a gas fireplace to keep it cosy in cool weather. We enjoy many repeat guests to our Happy Stay suite!

Staying in downtown Kelowna offers so much to see and do and our home is ideally placed for walking and cycling. We are near beaches and hiking. Check out details below.

By the way, this suite is part of our home and we live upstairs. We are freelance writers who work from home, and we look forward to meeting you!

Guest access

Washer/dryer. Portable convection oven, microwave, induction hot plate, toaster, kettle, all dishes and cookware. All bedding and towels supplied, in addition to paper products.

Your own deck and the garden.

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 free, private, 45 minute, personally guided introduction to mindfulness meditation (or group sit for experienced meditators) 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.

Paddy's place is wonderful. It's in a nice neighbourhood close enough to walk downtown but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. Great amenities in the kitchen and bathroom. Paddy as a host was very helpful and informative. We were initially concerned about the convection oven and hot plate but they are quality appliances and we were left to make full meals.

Dear Gloria, You and Colin were lovely guests. Thanks for choosing us! We wish you every happiness.

Neighbourhood was quiet. About a 20-25 min walk to the edge of the lake downtown near the "sails". Easy access for transit on Bernard or Hwy 97. Unit is very well kept and clean. Common sense house rules. Anytime we knocked on Paddy's door she was happy to adjust the A/C, or let us keep our bikes locked in the patio area. Paddy walked us through the suite on arrival and immediately addressed a small housekeeping issue with one of the frying pans. An enjoyable and private stay.

Response from Paddy:
It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us Jennifer, along with your friend Diane. I hope you come back again one day and that we can hang out and get to know one another. All the best with your new urban gardening projects!
