Really enjoyed our stay. The location was excellent and our host very helpful.
Loved our stay at GaLa - Gary and Laurel are amazing hosts and their home is a perfect getaway from the city life in Vancouver. Delighted and surprised to see a wonderful gift basket in the fridge with wine, cheese, fruit, chips, milk, youghourt, etc. etc. - so very thoughtful. Location is perfect - walking distance to town - a nice 10 minute walk and the beach at Manitou Park is also only 10 mins. A million thanks to them both for sharing their lovely home with us. Hope to return soon. Sheila and Tony
Family stay in Naramata
We stayed at this property for one week. Great location! Beautiful house, very clean and had all the necessary amenities. Would stay here again if we could!
Great stay in wine country
Super convenient location in Naramata! 4 or 5 vineyards within walking distance, and 10 minute walk to town/lake. Very quiet and peaceful in the evenings from the sundeck. Will stay again in future trips to Naramata.
What a wonderful way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary!
We were very pleased overall with our rental of Gala View Holiday Home in Naramata! The house was bright and clean and the amenities were plentiful. Loved the little added extra touches for our arrival, from the sign outside the door welcoming our family to the fresh-baked muffins in the kitchen. There had been a tiny concern prior to our arrival when we found out the week before that the home is actually shared with the owners’ daughter who lives in the basement suite. We were not aware of this when we booked in November of 2018 as it wasn’t mentioned in the description of the rental so we were a bit surprised to learn this just before our trip. To be honest, it probably would’ve influenced our decision to rent the house but as it turned out, we needn’t have worried. Though the owners were there when we arrived and stayed the night in the motor home parked in the driveway and their daughter lives in the home, it didn’t really end up affecting our family’s holiday. Laurel and Gary assured us before our arrival that the basement had been soundproofed and we wouldn’t have to worry about making too much noise or anything which is what we were looking for in a rental property (especially since teenagers are not the quietest people on the planet... LOL!) All in all, the location was perfect for us, the home is lovely and we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday! Thank you, Laurel and Gary, for everything! (One tiny little note... the Wifi is a little spotty and tends to drop off quite often while using so make sure to have a little extra data just in case.)

Laurel Vlieg purchased this House in 2016
Why Laurel Vlieg chose Naramata Bench
We fell in love with this area of the Okanagan Valley the first time we saw it with its lake views, rolling hills, deep gullies and rows of vines and fruit trees. In every season there is something to offer in the area and the natural beauty is everywhere.
What makes this House unique
This home has a very large vaulted living room and the air conditioning make it a restful retreat from the heat of the summer sun. If you choose to sit outside there are two decks to choose from - the south facing backyard which is fully fenced OR the front verandah that has mountain and peek-a-boo views of the lake and the Kettle Valley trails.
