Vacation Rental Reviews by alluraDirect

Lovely stay at Stone's Throw

Lillie from Kamloops, Canada
Date: Sep-14-2015 for a stay in Sep 2015

We enjoyed our stay at this property. Our only negative comment is that the BBQ was not very efficient, it burned the food faster than cooking it, which was very hard to work with, when we planned our meals around cooking on the BBQ. Also, the dishes were quite miss matched, not a huge issue, but it's nice to serve a meal all on the same plates. This comes from a chef's point of view. :o)

Most units in this price range did not offer 2 queen beds. This was a nice feature, as a good nights sleep is an important part of a great weekend. Otherwise, the unit was very clean and comfortable, we enjoyed our time very much, thanks!

OK. unit in good complex and location

Sylvia from Delta, Canada
Date: Jul-18-2015 for a stay in Mar 2014

Good complex, this unit had a few issues, that would hopefully be fixed by now. Broken chair, not enough bedding, broken coffee pot. Otherwise nice enough for a family stay. Ski-in/out good for the teenagers.

Looking forward to returning

Peter from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Mar-13-2015 for a stay in Mar 2015

What a great place. We are planning to return either in the winter again or the summer for mountain biking. There was a lot of kitchen essentials already stocked like olive oil, spices , paper towels, etc. There were more towels then you would need. The view was wonderful. The hot tub a relaxing end to the day.

Yannick was very responsive to every email I sent before going and while I was there. The heated floors in the bathroom were a nice touch. We went during the first week of Vancouver Spring break and much to our surprise there were very few people here. No lines on the lifts! The nordic skiing was across the street as was the snow showing.

What a great location. Thank-you. We plan to return!

Stones Throw 4* Great!

Kathryn from Tofino, Canada
Date: Feb-10-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

Unit 4* owned by Karin and Yannick was perfect for our 4 days of skiing at Sun Peaks. Very close to the Morrisey chair, across from Nordic trails which we wanted. The unit had more than enough room for two and had a second bedroom and futon for additional guests if need be. The private hot tub off the master worked wonders on sore muscles. The kitchen had everything we needed and the barbecue worked well too! Great spot for a ski holiday!

Condo not looked after.

Jeremy from Burradoo, Australia
Date: Feb-01-2015 for a stay in Jan 2015

I have just stayed in this condo for 12 nights, being my 3rd visit to Sun Peaks. I would not stay in this condo again. It is a nice place but it is not maintained or serviced well. On arrival the condo smelt very poor, as though a whole bottle of air freshener had been used. The exhaust fans in the bathrooms were not working, there was a very pungent mould smell. The fireplace was not working, numerous lights were not working, 2 of the television sets didn't work, there were wet towels in the washing machine and drier. The kitchen bench surfaces were not clean. The coffee pot had burnt coffee remains in it. Many of the window shutters couldn't be operated. One of the lounge chairs broke apart the first time I sat on it. The toilet bubbled away the whole time which was quite noisy. My whole family were disappointed in the extreme to think they were staying here for nearly 2 weeks. I contacted Yannick immediately. He was most apologetic and helpful in getting prompt action. By the end of our stay the fireplace was fixed, there was a new television, the exhaust fans were working and I had fixed the chair. Having spend a deal of my own time talking to the fireplace shop, cable service providers etc, the place felt like home. Unsolicited, Yannick offered me a discount on the accommodation. On a plus side, the kitchen was well stocked, with lots of supplies of herbs, spices, oil, sugar, coffee etc. There were ample crockery, pots and pans and cooking utensils. The beds were comfy, and despite a few rowdy neighbours upstairs, the place was quiet. The spa was private and perfect for a family of 5. So overall, despite the fact that we thoroughly enjoyed our Sun Peaks stay, I wouldn't stay here again as there are better properties to recommend in the Sun Peaks village.

Loved the condo and the Sun Peaks experience. Can't wait to do it again.

Our stay at Karin & Yannick's condo were wonderful!

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
Date: Aug-15-2013

The place was very clean, classy and had a good view of the mountains especially from the jacuzzi. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed every minute of our stay at Sun Peaks. The condo was very close to the village so we had a chance to experience the farmer's market, concert, clown show and had the best pizza we have ever tasted (thanks to Mountain High Pizza). The whole family had a wonderful time.We'll be back again for sure. We have already recommended this place to our families, friends & co-workers. We give it a score of 9 out of 10 (with 10 being the highest).

Peaceful Paradise

A FlipKey verified reviewer from North Vancouver
Date: Aug-08-2013

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very cozy and extremely peaceful. We wished we could have stayed longer than the 2 nights we booked and we will definately book this condo again when we stay in Sun Peaks the next time.

The place is comfortable, convenient and had wonderful owners.

Dan and Patsy Martin from Washington
Date: Jan-05-2013

We have stayed in this condo many times over the past several years. Karin and Yannick take great care of the place and respond us quickly and supportively. They even send us Christmas cards. We highly recommend staying in this condo.

Quiet, relaxing and comfortable getaway

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Abbotsford
Date: Jun-07-2012

Karin's retreat is just that, a retreat from the stresses of everyday life. It was a reasonable drive from the lower mainland, but a world away in terms of leaving it all behind. The master bedroom was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. We loved the hot tub! Sun Peaks is like a mini Whistler, perhaps the Interior's best kept secret. We enjoyed the area's outdoors. Shopping and dining, while limited, was excellent. We will be coming back!

Great Family accomodation

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
Date: Apr-17-2012

We stayed in the condo for a week in March 2012. We enjoyed skiing out and skiing in, it felt like home. The condo is well maintained and well stocked. Nothing better than gazing at the stars in the hot tub with the family after a day skiing. It was a wonderful holiday. Very much recommended!

Clean it

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
Date: Jan-05-2012

Unit could use a good cleaning. Moldy shower curtain, broken furniture, stained bed spreads, dirty windows and blinds, fans in bathroom do not work, lights do not all work, TV remotes do not work. In general the unit is small and has no place to store skis. It is not a luxury unit. Very basic.

Calm an peaceful

MM from Canada
Date: Aug-18-2011

Great unit! Very good location. The biggest noise was the Jacuzzi for the unit above, but that was a bit annoying. Otherwise well equipped well furnished and nice unit with a good location.

Great family outdoors getaway

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Prince George
Date: Jul-06-2011

This vacation rental was great for our family of four with 2 children. Separate bathroom for the kids was great and the kitchen stocked with seasonings, syrup and great assortment of pans helped me to cook keeping costs down and allowing us to eat healthy! The private hot tub was nice and the complex was extremely quiet at this time of year giving us a great quiet spot. Only complaints were there are more mosquitos at Sun Peaks at the end of June than I would have expected and the condo was a bit dusty = a reflection of its' availability I'm sure and with more use would likely not be a problem as overall it was clean and tidy! Stay here now, take advantage of a great rental and the dust will take care of itself!!

Beyond my expectations

A FlipKey verified reviewer from North Vancouver
Date: Feb-23-2011

This unit #48 in this resort was far and away the best owner rental type unit I have ever rented. There was not one single detail left out as far as things you think you would need. I even saw a baby play pen in the closet with small pillow. The kitchen had a full selection of spices and very large selection of pots and pans. There was easy access to and from the ski hills. And it was quiet. In a heatbeat I would stay here again.
