Your hosts

Lyall Orme and René Parada

Your hosts are Lyall Orme and René Parada along with our sometimes underfoot helpers, our two medium size, Shih-Tzu / Cock-a-Poo X friendly dogs, Chiquitin and Benito. They are full brothers from the same litter and at times are quite a handful.

Lyall was born, raised and lived in numerous communities around the Province of Alberta, Canada. He finally settled in the City of Calgary, Alberta.

René was born and raised in the City of San Salvador, El Salvador, Central America. He immigrated to Calgary, Alberta via Houston, Texas during the 80s. Rene is fluent in both the Spanish and English languages.

In 1997 together we moved to Duncan, B.C. with the intention of opening a B&B. We were both working full time while we located what we believed to be a suitable home for our venture and in 1999 we found it.

We continued to work in order to renovate and bring our dream to life. In 2005 we were finally in a position to open the B & B and named it Ormada House. Since that time we have enjoyed many guests from around the world.
