About Pauline Jans
Welcome to this little slice of heaven! Pauline & Mark have opened up their home and created a special place for others to enjoy this beautiful place in wine country. Sormovila is a private and elegant guest suite on the lake side of their home that offers their guests a lovely, romantic, and well appointed private vacation space to enjoy. Mark & Pauline are nature lovers who moved from North Vancouver to the Okanagan in late 2011. Mark enjoys hiking, mountain biking and is a former triathlete having done the Ironman both in Penticton and New Zealand. Since having moved here he’s developed quite the green thumb and a fabulous garden, as well! While Pauline has done an adventure race and some challenging riding in her day she now much prefers cross country mountain biking & hiking and is thrilled to have her own art studio on site, PJC studio. She draws, paints, works in multi-media and does a bit of sculpting as well. Please email to book your Sormovila Guest Suite accommodations.
Pauline Jans purchased this House in 2012

Lovely stay on the Naramata Bench. Good location for exploring the area with great views from a private deck and sitting area.
What a sweet spot!
Loved the location, loved the whole property, and especially loved and lived on the little deck of dreams while we were there! The pics are impressive but you still get that 'wow' factor. Thanks so much to Pauline and Mark for sharing their piece of heaven.
Wine country dream
This was the first time visiting Canada and we decided on wine country, in specific Penticton. We were absolutely thrilled with the suite and the amazing views we had from our deck. It was in the perfect location for both tasting at the multiple wineries and exploring the town and surrounding trails/beaches. Although our hosts were gone for a large part of the trip when we did have time to chat with them they were so pleasant and provided some great suggestions for wine tasting and touring.
The suite was just perfect and the attention to detail was amazing! From the chocolates on the nightstands, to the goodie basket, the linens and wonderful face and body products, Pauline and Mark really thought of everything, bravo!
We’re long forward to our next visit to OK valley and our stay at Somervila!
Thank you so much Gigi! Such a kind and generous review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and equally happy that you appreciated the little extras that were in the suite. It's been such a joy having the guest suite, meeting so many people and we love hearing the guests' reactions to the Okanagan and the guest suite. Lovely! Thank you and we hope we have the pleasure of hosting you again again soon!
