I booked this B and B based on the excellent reviews; and was not disappointed. Actually, it exceeded my expectations. Owners Barb and Gary were most charming and thought of every little (and big) comfort a person on holiday might want or need. The breakfast was beyond words. Each morning we were greeted with coffee and tea and sat out... More

We just spent two nights at Above the Beach b&b and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room had a giant spa and private balcony which made it very luxurious indeed! The perfect location with fabulous views of Penticton - and of course the perfect spot for enjoying any winery purchases (we had a great time chatting to Barb over some... More

We just got home from our two night stay at Above The Beach and I am ready to book another visit! We were made to feel right at home! Our room was great although we only slept in there. The rest of the time we enjoyed sitting on the beautiful deck taking in a view to die for. The breakfasts... More

We stayed for 5 nights over Easter (April 3-8) and received a warm welcome and a room upgrade, which granted us peaceful evenings and beautiful views over Skaha Lake and Penticton. Garry and Barb are fantastic hosts who prepare delicious breakfasts and are great to talk to. The room we had (coach house) was spacious with very comfy Queen bed,... More

Beautiful quiet location, large clean rooms, luxuriously comfortable beds and a spa like bathroom plus the most amazing view from the hills overlooking Penticton. The hosts Barb and Garry were very friendly and welcoming. After a wonderful night sleep we were served a large gourmet breakfast that was far beyond the usual waffle and muffin fare. We enjoyed our weekend... More

We stayed here for a portion of our local honeymoon. It was a bit of a drive up the hill but we had a really nice room including jacuzzi, and the couple was very nice. And the breakfasts were incredible, especially the clafoutis and the mango mousse. They had a nice yard with a lovely view. Overall recommend. Oh and... More

This was our first stay in the Penticton area, and we were fortunate to find this lovely B and B. The hosts were great, the view from the deck is breathtaking, our suite was lovely, but the main attraction here was definitely the breakfast! Each day the menu was different and featured breakfast served in courses on the shaded deck... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights in the Emerald room at Above the Beach. Barb & Gary couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The room was huge with wonderful views of the beach and the city. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful (and take into consideration any special concerns you may have). There is some noise from the upper floor... More
