About Jane Coady

Matthew is an architect, as you will see from our eclectic home! Jane is a retired newspaper publisher who now loves to garden!

We enjoy sharing our home with others and meeting new people. We have puttered along for over 20 years and created a secluded haven away from the everyday.

Jane Coady purchased this studio in 1992

Why Jane Coady chose Penticton

Matthew bought the property in 1992, having shifted his architectural practice to Penticton. Then he decided not which part of Penticton to live in, but which road he wanted to live on! The realtor explained that there were no listings, to which Matthew responded "Go knock on doors"! Two weeks later he and his two young children moved in!!

Jane came along and married into the family and their home in 1995.

What makes this studio unique

The property is very private, with lush gardens and vegetation. Matthew loves tropicals, and Jane tends more towards an English country garden. The garden is fully fenced and gated, so the property is often termed a private and secluded oasis or haven.

It is 5 minutes from downtown, and yet in the country. It is also very close to the KVR trail, which is great for gentle walks, hiking, and biking. The trail leads to more challenging terrain without using roads.

A lovely well appointed studio apartment located right by Naramata Bench wineries. Jane & Mathew were lovely hosts who shared their amazing garden and sent us local event information before we arrived, to help us plan our stay. 5 thumbs up!

Wonderful Studio, Property, Hosts and Neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

Well designed and nicely decorated unit. Compact but comfortable, didn't feel cramped. Enjoyed private patio and shared swimming pool with delightful owners and renters in 2 additional onsite units. Entire property is beautifully landscaped. Walking distance to the Bench Market with great coffee and breakfast/lunch items and to waterfront area downtown. Highly recommend!

Lovely property and nice location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the studio recently and really enjoyed our stay. The unit is lovely and very functional with lots of storage space. The location is close to Penticton but nice to not be right in town and very accessible to wineries on Naramata Bench. We would return to this property.
