Come and enjoy Nelson and The Kootenays while staying in our private walkout apartment. The City of Nelson is a 7 minute drive across the lake and Whitewater Ski Resort is a mere 30 min drive away. Comfortable, clean, cozy and family friendly space, just for you! Couples or families on a budget, all are welcome! Our private walkout apartment is located in the "west wing" part of the basement of our home, separated by a secure door. We are a family with young kids who live upstairs. Our space is a perfect place for a family to stay because, well, we get it . . . and we can offer a lot of great tips and extras for families too. There are 2 bedrooms but the second has a pull out couch so that room can be used as a living and lounging space with a TV and a Chromecast, bring your tablet and access your Netflix! We also have a pack n play if there is a little one who needs a bed. We have a mini fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee maker. Local Oso Negro coffee will be available for you in order to make your first cup on your first morning. We will also provide milk, cream, cereal, whatever makes it easy for you when you arrive. In the summer we have access to a private beach, priceless! Feel free to explore our backyard and ride bikes in our old tennis court! For those with mobility issues there are a few steps leading to the deck at the back of our home but the apartment itself is all on one level.
The back deck from which you access your apartment is a shared space as well as our tennis court, perfect for bike riding in the spring, summer and fall, and snowman building in the winter.
We will most likely be home during your stay and can be reached via phone or text to help you with anything you need
Our neighbourhood is located just a few kilometers from town. Very family friendly, yet quiet. We have great relationships with our neighbours and would like our guests to respect that. You can walk down to the bottom of the hill and find our neighbourhood beach!
Driving or biking to town is a great way to get around. We have parking for one vehicle and can store bikes / ski, snowboard gear for you. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill on Highway 3A that goes to downtown. A 20 min walk will take you to Nathalie's Produce on Highway 3A, a great treat in nice weather.
We have a dog and a cat, please note this if you have any allergies. They do not have access to the apartment but please be aware if allergies are an issue.
