|HAVE FUN!||to tell your friends and family what a great time you had at Sun Peaks, and in particular, how much you enjoyed your stay in our Alpine Retreat.|
We purchased our Stones Throw unit in 2007 with the intention of using it ourselves during non-peak times, and making it available to consciencious guests during peak periods. We enjoyed being in Sun Peaks so much that we sold our home on the lower mainland and decided to make Sun Peaks our permanent home. We purchased a unit in Bridgegate which is where we currently live. We are just around the corner from Stones Throw and are able to provide a quick response to our guests in the event of a concern.
We sincerely want to help you enjoy your vacation to the maximum by providing a high-end, clean, comfortable and well-equipped unit for your enjoyment. All we ask in return is for you to treat our condo with care and respect.
First Class Retreat
Heather & Stephen from Parksville
Bev was very attentive in ensuring we had all the information we needed prior to our arrival and she checked in with us several times via email to answer questions and to make sure we had received the checkin/information package. The pictures of the condo are accurate and its even nicer once you step in the door. Everything was meticulously maintained and lots of little thoughtful touches such as movies, magazines, games, extra blankets and pillows which made it very cozy. Loved the hot tub and a beautiful view of the mountain from the deck. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and even had flour, spices, sugar etc. which was most appreciated! We will definitely be back and rent this unit again it was lovely.
Wonderful condo in beautiful Sun Peaks!!
KathyM from Surrey BC
We are a family of 4 and stayed very comfortably at 'Alpine Retreat'. We could have brought Grandma & the dog and still would have had lots of space. The kitchen was well equipped, finishes in all rooms were top of the line, clean, well maintained, with owners who care! This place had everything we needed and lots more. Beautiful sunshine all day, crisp cold nights, luxurious soaks in the hot tub with amazing view. What more can you ask for? Stairs up from included parking and up to front door are a little steep, may be tough for very elderly or disabled folks, but no problem for us with our little ones. Stairs are a given in this kind of condo, but just a heads up! Remember to pack food or stop & shop in Kamloops. The bluebird market is fairly well stocked, but it would probably be cheaper to eat out, than to stock up there. The restaurants that we tried were good, no complaints. The kids centre for daycare & lessons was great. Staff was wonderful. The kids loved it and I had no concerns leaving them there. The mountain is incredibly family friendly. Everyone caters to the kids and made us feel very welcome!
Great Value and all the extras
RG from Grande Prairie
No complaints, a great unit in a quiet location with all the extras of home.
Perfect get-away for relaxation and exercise with your dog!
L & T Keehn from Vanderhoof
Everything about our stay at Bev's Stones Throw condo was wonderful..from the well supplied kitchen, to the luxurious bed and linens, heated tile floors in bathrooms, well maintained hot tub and cozy living and dining room with gas stone fireplace. The access to skiing was great. The underground parking was convenient with lots of room for visitors too. When we saw the welcoming dog dishes and dog treats, we knew we had picked the right place! We will definitely recommend to friends and plan to return ourselves.
Great ski retreat!
Andy from Vancouver BC
Beautiful property. Convenient location. Great services. Highly recommended.
Family Holiday from Golden, BC
Wonderful unit, that was dog friendly which was fabulous. Thanks again for providing the dog crate which was perfect, and the ski locker was fantastic as well. Wonderfully set up kitchen, and well stocked which was nice and the hot tub was fantastic as well. We really enjoyed our stay.
A Perfect Ski Vacation
Joan and Tom Webster from South Surrey
A beautifully decorated, organized and well appointed condo! Bev and Steve are very generous hosts, indeed, especially allowing us to bring along our beloved little dog, Ella. Park your car and ski/walk everywhere! Fabulous snow and ski services. Very quiet and private;a very relaxing week for us!! We loved it!!
Isabel Martinez from Vancouver
We had a great time. The house was very well equipped, including details as groceries items that you sometimes dont carry with you, like salt, spices, veg and olive oil. Only for suggestions: The yellow dishware gets too hot when you put it in the microwave. Hotter than the food or drink you are suppose to be heating. The ski locker been upstair is hard to access. The way to main ski gondolas is not easy through the village.
Perfect ski getaway for family
Andy from Vancouver, BC
Your property is beautiful and well equipped. We didn't find anything lacking. We elected to have Thumper, our golden doodle, spent his time in the back seats of our car while we ski and he seemed very content to have a nap there for the morning as such we never took advantage of the portable kennel you provided in your unit. He would have been fine but was never left in the unit alone. We have another family visited us for dinner couple of nights and your well equipped kitchen handled it well. We found a few of the dishes had some blemishes from heavy use when we arrived but that was to be expected. The hot tub maintenance crew did a great job. I liked how they shoveled off the snow for us every morning. There are ample supplies for everything - kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, pet, the water cooler was a winner, and the power outage provisions which luckily we didn't have to utilize. You did a great job! Your timely responses to our inquiries during our stay were outstanding and made us feel right at home. We even took advantage of your movie library some. Meet The Parents was hilarious. the location of the unit was great. Easy access to and from the chair and runs. The ski locker was super handy.
Wonderful vacation at Sun Peaks
Happy Seattle Campers from Seattle
This is our third time spending a ski week at Sun Peaks resort - and it was definitely our favorite one, thanks to the extremely comfortable, beautiful, and well appointed condo at Stone's Throw. We come to Sun Peaks for the fantastic skiing, but also because it is such a very welcoming place for our dog - an extremely important part of our family. Sun Peaks is an easy drive from Seattle, and it is wonderful to be able to find places that are so welcoming to pets. Every place we have stayed has been comfortable, but the Stone's Throw condo was definitely a step up. We loved that you had some throws to put on the furniture (we had brought our own as well), and the jar of treats was very popular. This is a great location, albeit a bit of a walk to the village - which was fine for our "baby" after we were out skiing most of the day. It also was fine for ski-out and ski-in. One thing to recognize is that it requires a morning ski up at Morissey - not a bad thing, really - it is great skiing, especially early in the morning. But it did require a trek to the "sunny" side before lunch, which we liked to do at the condo. Afternoons at the sunny side were no brainers. And at the end of the day? A nice hot tub, lovely kitchen, and cozy condo made hanging out with the critter in the evening a welcome time. We are even thinking about buying a place in this complex some day.Thanks again for such a nice vacation!
