University District

In the university district there is an abundance of outdoor fun: hiking and mountain biking some of the incredible trails, golfing at Quail Ridge or one of the other nearby golf courses and the Okanagan’s most brilliant lake (Kalamalka Lake) is within a short drive.

The university district of Kelowna is one of the fastest growing communities in the Okanagan. With close proximity to the Kelowna International Airport and Quail Ridge golf community plus a short drive to shopping and lakes, this is a wonderful neighbourhood. As Kelowna continues to grow so does the interest in this area of town as it’s a quiet area and yet is located within a 10 minute drive of so many amenities. This area is appealing to business travellers and jet setters who love the location close to the airport along with families with university aged students and young families who are drawn to Aberdeen Hall Prepatory School which is adjacent to UBC Okanagan. With spectacular golf here, you will find a number of very avid golfers that choose to make this area their home as well.

What We Love

We adore the fact that this mature neighborhood is growing! There is something for every demographic and endless possibilities for any property owner. Whether you are looking for a stunning view, larger lot and home, or an investment property- it’s a very attractive area. The new ‘Airport Village’ offers an abundance of amenities right at our fingertips. No need to drive a long distance for groceries, snacks, or even an electric car charge! 

The People

Because of this central location to the airport, there are many snow birds who choose to live in this quiet area. The prized, private school ‘Aberdeen Hall Preparatory’ is only a short drive away so, this area also attracts families and professionals. The successful new development located near the University of British Columbia is mainly condos geared towards student housing, which is attractive to local and out-of-town investors. Quail Ridge, within the University District is surrounded by renowned golf courses and hiking trails. This mature, older sub-division holds a variety of homes ranging from ranchers to family homes to multi-million dollar builds.

At Quail Ridge you will find single family newer homes (many with golf course views), some townhomes and condos that allow both short and long term rentals. Close to the university you will find a variety of apartment style condos that have been very appealing to investors with the high demand for student housing in the area plus there are single family detached homes with legal suites.
