“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in the Carriage House for a week with 3 young kids (age 5, 7, & 10) and everyone had a great time. House had plenty of room for the week with a great private patio area & BBQ. We used the pool almost everyday and it was perfect. All around great family vacation for everyone!

“Our Very Own Okanagan Paradise”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Gillian & Ray have a beautiful home and are great hosts. I have stayed at this location now 3 times and it never fails to impress. The Carriage House is ideal if you want Privacy and your own house. And the Poolside Retreat offers an equally private and great okanagan experience!

My family and I (Two young boys aged 2 & 5 ) originally stayed in the Carrriage House a few years back (1 child at that time) and loved it. The accoms are spacious both in around the 1000square feet area with each offering two bedrooms and a bathroom as well as BBQ and all cutlery ,bedding,etc. The Carriage house may be more preferable if you desire full kitchen appliances as the poolside is bar style fridge and cooking is done on side burner on BBQ within Poolside. With young kids either rental is very easy with all the comforts of home. Microwave, DVD , TV, and everything you would have in your own home. The location of this property is great as is 2 min drive to beach ave area and close to all shopping needs and a great commute to Penticton/Summerland and Greater Kelowna area.

There is a park a short walk away for children as well as very cool walking path that oversees the beautiful Peachland area. The rates are very reasonable for what you get! Much more spacious then a hotel and you very own private pool. The pool is shared between the two rental units but in 3 times I have never had anyone in pool but my own family not that it would matter because it is spacious with a diving board. They have put alot of thought into every detail as there are lounge chairs to bask in the okanagan sun while sipping a beverage(no glass around pool) and enjoying a hot summer day. They even have lounge chairs for the pool and water noodles for the kids to use. All and all this is a family favorite !

The Young Stars tournment for the NHL is 15 Min away in Penticton and The Poolside Retreat I stayed in with my brother to take in the tournament.(Diehard Edmonton Oiler Fans) The Poolside retreat offers a pool table and is steps away from Pool. The Carriage House has a short path from secluded house area on same property.

Gillian & Ray are by far the best hosts myself and family have experienced while doing VRBO rentals! When I was headed on a long journey to United States I spent a few days at this location. I was experiencing major vehicle issues . Ray & Gillian had a friend look into my issues and the rest of my trip was saved as the issues were resolved. This is one of many examples of the type of people & hosts Gillian and Ray are! If you have a chance to get to know Ray & Gillian personally, you too will see the great people they are. I thoroughly have enjoyed every experience and am glad Gillian and Ray took the time to meet me and my family. We love the property and are happy we have met what has become great friends in Gillian and Ray! I am hesistant to tell all the great things about this property as this has become a yearly thing for our family and dont want my Okanagan Paradise taken over lol. I am writing this review to share what my family feels is the best Okanagan rental I have seen. Thanks for your hospitality Gillian and Ray and we look forward to spending time with our family at your bautiful property for many years to come!

Your friends,
The Cochranes

“Great spot to stay for a girls weekend”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Four of us stayed at the Poolside Retreat in Peachland. Since we weren't travelling as couples, it was nice to find an affordable spot where we all had our own beds! Poolside Retreat is easy to get to and Gillian is very accommodating and friendly. I would recommend this as a great place to stay. It's very clean, easy to find and there was plenty of space for the four of us to hang our hats during our weekend stay.

“Great place for a summer getaway”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Poolside Retreat. The Carriage House was lovely and we really enjoyed having a covered deck to sit and eat dinner and then enjoy the quiet evening. The saltwater pool was also very nice and was wonderful to cool down in during the hot afternoon. The kitchen had everything you need to meet your basic needs, but if you really like to cook, then I would recommend you bring your own specialty items. The place was tidy but in need of a more thorough detailed cleaning. The prepayment booking made me a bit uneasy, having not stayed before, however the place was enjoyable and we would return again.

“Little Paradise in Beautiful Peachland”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We just returned from a week stay at Poolside Retreat. This was our 3rd visit and fist stay at Carriage House. This is a little paradise surrounded by green hills and just a minutes of drive from the Peachland's beach avenue. The place has everything you need and beautiful surroundings. The accommodations is 5 star, great pool, the only place I feel like home. Cleanest bed sheets, towels, kitchen utensils. Lots of space and beautiful gardens. We traveled with 2 years old toddler and she loves the place. Every time we go the owner brings in bunch of toys for her to play, which is great and I don't need to bring over her toys with me from home. It is a paradise getaway no matter you travel with kids or alone. Highly recommend and will return next summer again hopefully!

“Quiet, private”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A lovely, quiet place on the hillside above Peachland, with a beautiful pool and an extremely comfortable, spacious suite. The entrance is private and there is a wonderful area for this suite only, with a patio table and comfortable patio chairs to sit at and enjoy the surroundings and listen to the birds. Very relaxing! The host is welcoming and has furnished the suite with very nice, comfortable and quality pieces. The kitchen is small, but well stocked with everything you would need. We would go back again!
