We stayed three nights and had a great time in this beautiful location in the country close to wineries, cheeseries and the KVR trail. Gregarious hosts, great breakfasts, big house on ten acres with a view of the lake, and a very friendly dog.

Lynn and I spent a day and evening at this wonderful guesthouse. The rooms are spacious, exquisitely decorated and cozy too. Each roman has a unique view and feel. Neil and Silke toured us around and allowed us to select our favourite room. Then we spent some time touring the grounds and the vineyard. We felt like they have captured...

We stayed here over a long weekend in November and it was more than we expected. Neil and Silke were absolutely amazing with their hospitality, beautiful rooms, and a delicious breakfast. They offered great recommendations of eateries and wineries that were phenomenal. We would highly recommend E'laysa Guesthouse to anyone who is traveling to Pentiction. It felt like a magical...

We had always wanted to visit the Okanagan Valley and I really did not know where in the valley to stay. Everyone said we should look at Kelowna but I just couldn't find a place to stay that I liked. Eventually found this treasure in Penticton. The place is beautifully laid out with its own vineyard and lots of break...

Hi! thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. So sorry about the temperature! We always have the AC turned to 19 degrees in the summer, but have had difficulty on the very warm days diverting enough air to the Gardenview. So sorry for that, particularly if you're someone who likes cooler rooms. Some day we'll...

E'Laysa is exquisite. The house is comfortable yet stylish. Peaceful tranquil setting on the Naramata bench in BC wine country. Our hosts were wonderful. Breakfast was perfect and we even got a piano performance by the owner that was amazing. Several exceptional wineries very close by. Definitely will do this one again!

Thank you! Neil loves that piano and you should hear him now with the new tuning :-)

We had a fabulous 2 day stay with Silke and Neil for our annual wine-tasting weekend. We had not been back to Naramata for several years as we hadn't been thrilled with the accommodation options in the area - mediocre hotels and B & B's at best. But after this stay at E'Laysa (which opened in May 2016), Naramata wineries...

Wonderful to have your review. We loved having you stay with us, and are delighted that you chose us for your Okanagan wine trip. It's so close to all the Okanagan wineries - which keeps us on our toes trying to see as many as we can! I think even living here and avid wine lovers we've only scratched the...

The owners did themselves proud decorating this B & B with an Tuscany Theme, when you look out the window at the tall junipers and cedars, the vineyards and orchards, you are taken back to hillsides of the Chianti area in Italy. The beds are super comfortable with luxurious linens, the ensuite is fantastic including a large whirlpool tub, double...

Thank you for your review! Apologies we didn't respond until now. The feeling like Italy - in Canada - was what had us fall in love with this place. We're working on renovating our new rooms to make sure they have the same look and feel! Hope to have you back some day :-). Silke and Neil

We stayed Oct. 11-13 and very much enjoyed the experience. The guesthouse grounds are beautiful in a peaceful location. The rooms are very nice with extremely comfortable beds. The breakfasts were yummy. This is a perfect location for touring local wineries. For us, this is the place to stay when visiting Penticton.

This was our first trip to the Okanagan. We traveled with 3 other couples and stayed 2 nights in the main house. Our accommodations were excellent. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfasts were first class. Hosts Neil and Silke made us feel at home.
