The house was great. The pool was fabulous!
We had another great stay st Barbarian Gardens. It’s very clean, the deck is huge, and the yard with the pool is very private and beautiful. We love our vacation week here.
Paradise by the Pool!
Our stay in Pauline's beautiful home was delightful- The house was meticulously clean, bedrooms had high-quality bed linens, tons of towels and the kitchen was fully kitted out with everything we needed for our family's love of cooking and dining al-fresco. Although we spent most of our time outside, the house and dining room had plenty of space to accommodate our group for the one epic thunderstorm we had. The outside deck was wonderfully private with a great view of the lake and a huge outdoor table, but the real star of this property has to be the saltwater pool. We all spent hours and hours poolside, catching up with one another, enjoying local wines, lounging, reading, and swimming like we were kids again! Pauline is a wonderful host and we really felt that she provided everything we could have possibly needed for our stay. It was a fabulous vacation, and we would definitely return to Barbarian Gardens!
Thank you so much for the amazing review! Your group was exactly what I had in mind when I started doing vacation rentals. Your 92-year-old father was fun to visit with as was his 87-year-old brother. I almost felt like part of your family! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, and can’t thank you enough for looking after the house as well as he did. I hope to see you again in the future!
Be careful staying here
Stayed here 5 months. House is misrepresented as having only one 'caretaker' flat - there are 2 self-contained apartments downstairs (landlord resided in one of them, the other is also tenanted). One of the flats is connected to the unit via an internal door (not lockable from our side).
Outside area is nice but inside is old, cluttered and tacky (e.g., there are gargoyles in every room). Electrics are shoddy (don't plug the kettle in with the toaster, or else hope someone is home downstairs to fix the breaker). This happened at least 5 times with different kitchen appliance combinations - we were told 'don't use the microwave so much'. Leather couches and ottomans are peeling and leave a mess. Central vacuum doesn't work (we were charged for dumping fees for a vacuum we had to buy and leave behind). We were not given lock access to the front door, and told to use patio door, which is a real pain for hauling suitcases and things through the back gate, around through the backyard, up onto the deck.
Make sure you conduct your own pre-inspection with pictures; landlord blames us for all pre-existing faults and is keeping our damage deposit. Did not want to meet with us for post inspection despite her being at the unit on checkout day, and knowing we are from overseas and with little recourse to counter fraudulent claims. We have lodged for Dispute Resolution through Residential Tenancies.
The place is probably fine to rent for a weekend but watch out for yourselves. The datedness of the house along with its deteriorating furnishings are a risk to potential tenants.
I have been a vacation rental owner for over 10 years and never had to deal with someone who did not come to me privately with their concerns. Any issues that were brought to my attention were dealt with in a timely fashion. I am really sorry that you feel you need to try to publicly insult me, slander me with half-truths and complete lies, and hurt my otherwise high rating. This is one of those Vacation Rental Nightmares property owners all dread. Almost 100 photos, 18 hours of cleaning, and 19 loads of laundry speaks volumes as to your character. The saying For Every Finger You Point, There Are Three Fingers Pointing Right Back At You is appropriate here.
Barbarian Gardens Family Getaway
We had a fabulous time at this home. We were a party of 8, and had plenty of living space. We never felt crowded, and felt very comfortable. We used the outdoor living space as much as we could. The pool(where our children practically lived) was fantastic, and the huge deck space was great. The kitchen is fully stocked making it easy to make meals. The living room is very large and was comfortable for all of us. Bedrooms were all a good size, and beds were very cozy. The location of this property is one of the best we have stayed in while visiting Kelowna. It is very convenient, central, very close to wineries! We all enjoyed our stay here, and would not hesitate to book again.
Thank you for an amazing review Sandi. It's always nice to hear that someone's enjoyed the property. I hope to see you again in the future.
Nice and quiet area.
Great family accomodation with the pool as it kept us entertained and refreshed in the heat.
Nice renos in the house, it slept 6 of us comfortably.
It was great to meet you all and host you in my home. Glad you had a great time and hope to see you again in the future.
