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

Spent 2 days with Gary and Barb, great hosts and great cooks. The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. The view was amazing. Can't believe I would say that of Penticton which is so flat; but up on the hillside overlooking Skaha Lake is a whole different world. We arrived as guests and left as friends! We will be back....
