The del Ray B&B is 5 Stars all the way but the top two stars are the owners, Bob and Phyl. They are very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious and, awaiting us upon arrival, are chocolates and a bottle of chilled Chardonnay.
The furniture is gorgeous and the bathroom is full of soaps, oils, lotions, bottled water, and an abundance of towels.
We had our own private patio area looking out onto the orchard, lake, and mountains. There are beautiful flowers everywhere. Total peace and serenity.
The breakfasts are fabulous. We chose to eat outside in the gazebo but had the opportunity to dine inside if we wished. The first day we were presented with poached pears with raspberry sauce and Eggs Benedict. The second morning we were treated to granola/yogurt/blackberries and Belgian waffles with peaches, syrup, and whipped cream. Absolutely delicious! We were also offered homemade cherry, apricot, grape, or peach juice. With the lovely detailed table settings, the delectable food, and the attention to service from Bob and Phyl, it was like eating in a 5 Star restaurant.
Available to us all day and night were cookies, coffee, tea, fruit, juice, water, and pop.
As we were reading the paper in the gazebo one afternoon, Bob came out and offered to make us coffee or tea.
We really enjoyed the time we spent with our hosts and felt like we'd made two new friends.
As we left, we were presented with a beautiful basket of fresh fruit and cold water for our trip home. Included was a lovely thank-you card as well.
This was the second year we stayed at the del Ray and it will be the only place we stay in Osoyoos as long as Bob and Phyl are the hosts.
They are one class act! Thanks, Bob and Phyl!
