My advice is to stay away from the Starlight Beach House, a private rental house outside Nelson that rents for $2,500 a week.
The website is at http://www.discovernelson.com/starlight/.
The house is located at 1622 SW Hwy 3A, a few miles outside Nelson on the north shore of Kootenay Lake's West Arm.
We stayed there for a week in August, 2006, and the house was in very poor condition on the inside. Although the appliances worked, the furniture was shot, and the bedrooms were sparsely furnished with rickety beds and old mattresses. We had a recurring mouse problem. It was not very clean. On the plus side, the house is in a beautiful location, right on the water, and it has a nice back porch and hot tub. But the owner has apparently invested very little money in upkeep, and it shows.
