Willow Beach Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #17 of 26 West Kelowna B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 17, 2014

This B&B is outstanding and I can see why everyone rates it as 5 out of 5. The building is worth multi millions of dollars. As soon as you arrive at this hidden gem, you see a grand entrance with high windows surrounding a large wooden door. Once inside you see the panoramic views over Lake Okanagan. The bedrooms are spotless and tastefully decorated. You watch the gourmet food being prepared at breakfast while you sit at a granite bar or at the dining table by the window. The kitchen is like a high end kitchen which would be purchased by an expert chef. That is because the very friendly and professional couple who run Willow Beach are expert cooks. The location is only a couple of kilometers from the Town of Kelowna along a small road that skirts the lake and across the newly constructed bridge. I often stay at hotels which cost $250 a night for a bed with no food. The price of this B&B is very low in comparison although the accommodation is superior. I should declare that since my wife and I stayed there the first time, we have become friends with the hosts but what I have written above is absolutely true.

Room Tip: Talk to Jim and Deb, the owners, and they will tell you the options.

Willow Beach B&B is sat right on the west side of Okanagan Lake in West Kelowna.
Its like staying on millionaires row. The view from the property of Okanagan Lake can not be beat.

Jim and Deb were wonderful hosts who were like Canadian family by the time we left.
Our room had its own balcony which was very comfortable and had a spacious bathroom.

The breakfast on the terrace each morning was wonderful. Jim made us a different meal both days and we thought it was the best breakfast we had had throughout our whole holiday.

There's not much in the way of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the B&B but its not far into town or to one of the local vineyards. We drove into Kelowna downtown the first night but Jim kindly offered to drop us at Quails Gate for our evening meal the following night which was fantastic so we could have a few glasses of wine and relax and enjoy our meal.

This is what's great here at Willow Beach B&B, they can't do enough for you, just lovely people.
At the bottom of the garden is the property's own landing. We sunbathed there and you can have free use of the kayaks and inflatables which was great fun.
It was a great place to chill out and after all the driving we had been doing it was perfect.

Many thanks again folks see you again if we are back in the Okanagan!

Room Tip: Get one with a view of the lake its wonderful

We stayed for one night as we attended a wedding down the road on Westside Road, Kelowna. We needed an early check-in so we could freshen up before the wedding and Debbie, kindly, made it happen! This is a beautiful home in a beautiful setting with gardens and a dock on Lake Okanagan. Our room had a view of the lake and a fabulous bathroom with a large tub and lovely tile finishings. We slept very well as it was quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was outstanding! I always look forward to breakfasts in B&Bs and this was one of the best. The eggs benny were from scratch and the home baking( strawberry muffins) and fruit parfait with brulee sauce were special. The sundeck overlooking the lake was a great place to have breakfast (including the hummingbird visitor). Jim and Debbie were so accommodating. They grow their own veggies and herbs so really a treat to be fed by them! We will certainly stay there again!

Willow Beach B&B is absolutely tops in providing guests with a combination of warm hospitality,
luxurious accommodation and a fine gourmet breakfast served in either the dining room or deck overlooking the lake. Bedrooms are graciously furnished with fine linens and seasonal flowers. Outdoors, guests are offered use of the dock for sunbathing and swimming, kayaks and a canoe, a hot tub and putting green. Lovely gardens surround their home and and provide the fresh flowers and herbs. Jim and Deb indulged us with luxurious gourmet breakfasts featuring fresh fruits and baking and imaginative and delicious hot items like omelets or crepes. They offer assistance with restaurant and golf course recommendations and reservations, winery tours and sightseeing suggestions. We enjoyed morning coffee on the dock on the lake and found robes and beach towels in our room. We have stayed in many other B&Bs and none have provided such a luxurious combination of pleasures. We look forward to coming back.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Lake View room with its romantic tub, large shower,and private deck.

If you are even close to Kelowna and would like a beautiful place to stay, please look no further than Willow Beach. Jim, Deb and Jack are wonderful hosts and quite the group of foodies. The breakfasts are mind blowing. Over three mornings, we were given divine crepes stuffed with egg and smoked salmon, a delicious frittata and a rich benedict. The meals are always served with a fresh fruit salad and muffins that are straight out of the oven. Deb even makes flavoured butters. There is plenty of tea and coffee and genuine conversation to be had. On top of all this, the rooms are well appointed and beautifully furnished. The Lake room has a bathtub that easily fits two and a luxurious stand in shower for two. The views of the lake bring inner peace and relaxation. If you are lucky, Jack, the black Cat will give you a tour of the property, from the deck to the putting green to the dock. Jim tends to the putting green and even for non golfers such as ourselves, it is a sight to behold, for it is beautifully maintained. The Willow Beach is such a slice of heaven. We will be back, time after time after time! Thank you Deb and Jim and Jack!

A big thank you to our hosts Deb & Jim who made our stay in Kelowna so memorable. They certainly made us feel a part of the family and completely at home in their lovely home. The location was special and the views and access to the lake uninterrupted. The breakfasts were delicious and the strong coffee helped to overcome the jet lag. The extra's were helpful - beach towels and flip flops, iced water and teas available. Many, many thanks for all your hard work. Alice & Mark (Oxford UK).

Just got back from our second stay at willow beach b&b. Once again we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Jim and Deb. Once again the breakfasts were absolutely fantastic (SERIOUSLY good). Of course the wonderful views were also the same, and certainly no complaints there either. Location is enough out of the city to be tranquil, but close enough to be convenient. The rooms and general accomodation are clean and very comfortable. Awesome views from the lake-view room if you can get it! All in all Willow Beach is certainly one of the nicest b&bs we've stayed at, and we'll certainly be back some day. All round fantastic experience!
