Wow. What a beautiful and romantic getaway. Not only was the room immaculate, and super cozy, the service was what really stood out. Sherry was amazing at anticipating all of our needs without getting in our space. The chocolates, and roses, and champagne, and everything she has to offer were icing on a very delicious cake. You won't find any other romantic getaway that compares. We've been to swanky places like sparkling hills, etc that are very nice, but the service and romance does not compare.
Prepared to be pampered, by your gracious hostess,Sherry.. in this wonderful B and B..In the hills above Kelowna!Order some chocolate dipped strawberries and candles..perfect for your Anniversary, wedding etc....Breakfast included delicious treats..fruit, strudel, cinnamon buns, tasty bottled yogourt, flavored coffees or teas, the menu varied a bit each day! Sherry has comfy suites w/ jacuzzis ,showers,and fridges.The bed in the Royal was decadent..best sleep we've had for some time! Sherry has a good knowledge of restaurants etc..she made a ressie for Vines @ Quails Gate..The Arctic Char, Cornish hens, and duck are delicious..our server was most attentive! They even provided a bit of complimentary wine for our wedding toast! We have also stayed in the Imperial Room(Last fall) and can also recommend it heartily..You cant go wrong at Vista Villa!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Retreat and were thankful for Sherry's attention to detail. We had a wonderful and refreshing sleep in our darkened room. I was hoping to see the lights of the city during the dark of night, but unfortunately, the lights overlooking the pool were too bright. The door/divider between the bathroom/toilet and the bedroom was only a curtain in our room, so you have to be very comfortable with your partner during your bathroom time.
Sherry's place is absoutely breathtaking, from the grounds and the incredible heated salt water pool, to the comfiest of beds and suites that have everything you could ever need in your home away from home. Sherry's friendly and helpful nature starts right from booking, where she ask's all the important questions so that she can make your stay as perfect as possible. The suite was exceptionally clean and well maintained with everything thought of, right down to candles and makeup remover pads, nothing is not there for you, and if your missing anything she is right there to ensure you get it.
Mixed with the beautiful city of Kelowna and the many things to do, she includes her own list of restaruants, markets, winery tours, boat tours anything that your heart could desire to do, she has information on it.
Then there is Sherry herself, the sweetest, most vibrant, funny, charming hostess you could ever ask for. Her attention to detail is second to none ensuring that you have the most relaxing, pamered visit possible.
I feel like I have made a life long friend now and look forward to going back again to visit again.
This place is a 10+ star property.

My hubby and I stayed in the Royal room for the last few days, and I can’t speak highly enough about our experience there. We’ve stayed in many many resorts, B&B’s, hotels etc and this is one of the absolute best! Attention to detail is outstanding from cleanliness, to all the small touches to make us feel pampered and at home. Sherry, the owner, is an absolute delight to deal with and puts love for her guests into everything she does. Even the sheets on the bed felt splendid! We are picky with beds and the bed was so very comfortable; I slept better those nights than I had in months! The backyard is an absolute oasis, with a lovely warm saltwater pool, plenty of lounge chairs (even though we were the only ones out there), and beautiful foliage to make us feel like we are at a 5* resort all on our own! Sherry made us feel welcome and spoiled rotten; she has a great sense of humour and serves people with her whole heart.
