My Fiancé and I recently traveled to Penticton to celebrate our engagement. We were beyond impressed with Above The Beach. Great food, the view cannot be beat and a surprisingly modern feel to the rooms. Not to mention Gary and Barb try to make your vacation truly special. Would 100% recommend and will be returning!

Great location with a great view, this B&B has ALOT to offer. The owners are sweet as pie and treated us just like family. This has been our 3rd time at this B&B and we intend to continue booking here on each of our Penticton travels. Rooms are very well kept with beautiful showers and breakfast each morning is done...

This was our third year staying with Barb and Gary at their lovely B&B, and we already have next years stay booked! What is unique is that most (all but one, I think) suites have a private entrance, so you don't feel as if you are disturbing anyone, coming and going. Barb WOWs us every year with her breakfast delights.... More

I would highly recommend Above The Beach to all visitors to Penticton. You start your day with an amazing beautifully presented breakfast. Barb and Gary open their sitting area and veranda to all guests in the evening to share wine and conversation. They share many stories of their interesting travels and you feel at home. Our daughter and her boyfriend... More

We highly recommend Above The Beach to anyone looking for a home away from home while in Penticton. Barb and Gary create a warm and welcoming space to explore the Okanagan and wine country. They know the area well and can give you some hot suggestions for wine tours and dining. The breakfast served on the main patio is exceptional... More

Barb and Gary were most welcoming and staying with them felt like family. The suites are modern and beautifully furnished. A glass of wine on the patio, a gourmet breakfast and a bowl of freshly picked cherries from their tree helped make our experience more than we had expected. We will come back and highly recommend Above the Beach.

We had the opportunity to stay at Above the Beach in early July. Barb and Gary made our experience in Penticton fantastic. Barb booked us in with Grape Friends Wine Tours when we expressed interest in wine touring and it was a great experience. She also had lots of really good dining suggestions for us that she shared over a... More

The friendly owners will welcome you with open arms to a clean and comfortable room. In the morning, they will dazzle you with a delicious, two-course breakfast served on the outside deck overlooking the lake and mountains.

What a relaxing B&B. Barb and Gary were so helpful in giving us recommendations to the wineries we should visit and I must say if you are in the area to visit Ruby Blues. The breakfast that was served was so good. We stayed in the Ruby room and it was really comfortable. Beautiful home lovely view and you couldn't... More

Whenever we're in Penticton visiting the family, we always stay at Above the Beach. This time, we stayed in the Carriage House and loved it. Spotlessly clean, great linens, decadent soaking tub, "space-age" shower. But a lot of B&B's have great rooms: what they don't have is Barb and Garry. These guys go out of their way to make you...
