Oliver BC-Vacation Rental

Perfect and peaceful

We just enjoyed a 3 day mini-vacation with Cindy & Brad at Flaming Squirrel Guest House. The accommodations were exactly as listed and are private, tasteful, very comfortable and well stocked with anything you may need while away from home. The hosts have paid attention to all the little details that make a difference… lovely breakfast items for self catering, wine chilling in fridge on arrival, every kitchen gadget imaginable, even binoculars and birdwatching book, etc etc. The perfect spot for relaxing in the evening after touring the region’s wineries (the closest one, Fairview Cellars, is literally just down the road) plus you will be lulled to sleep by the symphony of frogs each night! Photo opportunities abound in the lovely landscape surrounding the Guest House. The town of Oliver is a short drive away for good grocery shopping and of course there are lots of roadside farm fruit and vegetable stands in season. And let’s not forget the fabulous and authentic Mexican taco stand on the outskirts of the south side of town. Always busy, but well worth the wait. Several of the wineries have beautiful view restaurants with excellent chefs (lunch is recommended for those on a budget) and most have picnic tables on the grounds should you feel like bringing your own and purchasing a glass (or bottle!) to accompany your meal. Cindy & Brad know the region well and were very congenial hosts. Lots of good written information/brochures provided in the suite. A great get away spot for renewing the spirits. We hope to be back next year.
