About Gill EVans

We have three adult children and emigrated to Canada in 2008, after falling in love with Peachland. In the 2 years we have been here we have made many friends and have embraced the Okanagan laid back and outdoor lifestyle. We enjoy meeting people, hiking, fishing, swimming and skiing. In fact our youngest son was in the British Ski Team for many years. Our favorite pastimes is joining our friends for a drink in a cafe along Beach Avenue and watching the world go by. Bliss!

Gill EVans purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Gill EVans chose Peachland

One of the many reasons we chose to buy in the the Okanagan Valley is the climate, It is located at the northern most end of the Sonora Desert and hence has a semi-arid climate, boasting long warm summers and relative mild winters compared to elsewhere in Canada. It is also in an ideal location being in the heart of the Okanagan making it easy to take advantage of everything it has to offer. We also loved the fact that we could be at a ski resort within 15mins in the winter and a major ski resort in just over an hour. We were very lucky to find a beautiful house on a flat acre of land, with a suite and also with a legal Carriage Houses, as there are only 4 legal carriage houses in the whole of Peachland and knew it would make ideal holiday accommodation. We really do enjoy sharing our great facilities with our guests and are greatly rewarded when we see our guests enjoying the pool and other amenities.

Great accomodation for families with small kids

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of four ( kids 3 and 4 yrs old) had a great time at the poolside retreat.

The cottage is very family friendly equipped w/ booster seat, pack n play, kids room w toys and books, outdoor badminton net and obviously the pool.

If you are going, make sure to buy some homemade jam from Casper's Corner next door.

Many thanks to Gill and Ray for their great hospitality.

We hope to be back soon :)

University Place, WA.

Quiet and private accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the poolside retreat for two nights. This area of BC has so much to do, you need more than two nights. The weather was very hot, so we full advantage of the swimming pool. The neighborhood is quiet and evening walks were very nice in this rural setting. Okanagan Lake is right down the hill, as are great little restaurants and numerous wineries are within a 10 minute drive. Great little place, we would highly reccommend it.

Private & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This proved to be an excellent home to return to each night as my Mother and I explored the Okanagan Valley from Salmon Arm to Osoyoos over the course of a week in May. Quiet, roomy and all the comforts of home. Gillian keeps the property very clean and beautiful with flower gardens everywhere. Great pool and deck. Exactly as described and pictured. We had a lovely time and will definitely book again.
