About the property

Please see our other listings Cali suite 683893, Loft suite 719480.

We have redecorated this suite to reflect the owners love for this Caribbean island. The Havana suite uses the bright cuban colors, plants and wood floors to pay tribute to Cuba. The Havana suite offers Samsung appliances in the kitchen. This suite will have you have curled up on the Buckskin sofa and gazing out the panoramic windows onto the ever changing beauty of the Kootenay Lake. The furniture is a mix of Santa Fe and country, featuring Drexal Heritage pieces.

The kids will be so content in our home theater as you soak away the day in the outdoor spa tub. After dinner curl up in front of the gas fireplace and pour your favorite glass. The Havana suite is sure to invite you back again and again.

2 bedrooms, 2 baths. Sleeps 4 adults. The home theater has two double futons if necessary.

Excellent place for relaxing and making merry

  • 5 of 5

Six of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is a short drive from downtown Nelson, so easy access to area activities -- though we mostly spent time there, swimming (lovely beach area adjoining), enjoying the hot tub and entertainment room, and eating home-cooked meals. Several in our group are contemplating returning in the future for other gatherings of family and friends.

Oh no no no!

  • 1 of 5

Would rate 0 stars if site would let me. Arrived to site to preview before check in. Advertised as apartment -no it's a basement to owner's house with big loud house dogs above you. It is dark, dreary and depressing Relatively clean but stunk - smelled like wet dogs. My husband couldn't tolerate smell. My fault that I did not realize no air conditioning - cannot tolerate for health reasons. Who wants to share kayaks with other renters next door. Says a lot when u walk off after paying what we did. We live in a very upscale college town in USA and are accustomed to much better accommodations.

Owner's Response: I can't believe I am forced to rebut baseless accusations from a seriously disturbed person! However I will not accept attacks on my family or business. This woman and her husband arrived 1 hour early while Mandi was finishing up the floors and doing final touches. It will be best to address each complaint individually. 1. "Advertised as apartment". There is no place in our description did we mention an apartment. How could this possibly be a complaint? 2. Dark and dreary , she was obviously making reference to her outlook on life because this suite has full size picture windows across the front of the suite!! The suite is painted in "bright" Cuban colours blue, yellow and orange, yes the decorator did an amazing job!! 3. Yes Mandi has 2 senior citizen dogs and she immediately pounces on them should they bark! 4. "The apartment smelled like wet dog!" That is a delusion, the dogs have never been in this suite or any other. Mandi was in the middle of washing floors when this woman arrived. Mandi is a professional cleaner and only uses organic essential lavender oils. 5. "No air conditioning". The Havana suite does not have air con because it is always naturally the coolest of all our suites!! 6. " Who wants to share kayaks with other guests!?" How should I answer this, well everyone, everyone has shared and enjoyed the kayaks. I should point out to anyone who reads this response that you also refused to go into the hot tub because of people's germs. Just to note that this is a brand new hot tub only 60 days old when you arrived. My daughter Mandy is a chemist when it comes to maintaining her hot tubs !!! It should be noted to the readers that you stayed at the Havana suite for minutes and left abruptly!! We have over the years had so many wonderful memories from our previous American guess. I don't know why you thought it necessary to make a reference to your small College town where your home is. It is clear by your experience in that Havana suite that there would be no possible way of pleasing you. I suggest that you stay in your college town to spare other VRBO homeowners this experience !!!!

Great location, great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with friends and family--the suite very comfortably accommodated 4 adults and 2 teens, and a dog. It was a bit too warm to take advantage of the hot tub, but we appreciated the possibilities.

The suite had ample room, internet, washer/dryer, and a home theatre. One thing that might be nice to add would be a few extra kitchen items--cups/glasses, sharp knives, bottle opener, etc. Still--it was a super place and would highly recommend!

Beautiful place right on the lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay...beautiful place right by the lake with our own dock and boats to use. Great place to stay with a family and everything you'd need. Nicely decorated and renovated. Only thing that threw us off is there was one queen bed in a bedroom and a double bed in the second room. Nice screen projector that our 2 year old enjoyed with two beds - she loved this area. The hosts were so hospitable and made us feel welcome and helped us with any questions we had. When the power and water went out in the town of Nelson, they were so proactive to check on us and provide updates. We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here.

Lovely home, lovely view, and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in the Havana Suite. It was well-equipped to handle 3 kids and lots of beach activities made for a relaxing, enjoyable time for my husband and I! We would happily go back.
