GUEST FEEDBACK:

Thank you for allowing us access to your loveliest of accommodations. So homey, comfy, and replete with ambience. This was our first trip to Whistler. We had the most wonderful time and experienced the best ski conditions. Paulette from Toronto

Your home is beautiful. It was warm, cozy, and more. What a great location – close to the slopes and bus stop. Our family had a great time sharing this vacation - our first ski holiday away from home. We will take many warm memories with us.Cindy from California

You have a very cozy home to stay in. The snow at the top of the mountain was terrific! The hot tub was a special treat after a day on the mountains. Thanks for sharing.Jeff from Houston, Texas

Local Tips

About Us

We live in Vancouver, BC. We are the original owners of our Mountain Star home and have been renting it to guests since 1998. We spend as much time here as we can, and our sons and their families enjoy spending time here also. In the summer we love to hike, ride bikes and ride the Zip Line. In the winter we ski, both down hill and cross country. We hope you'll love Whistler as much as we do!

A great skiing holiday in Whistler Blackcomb

Daan from Maple Ridge, Canada
Date: Jan-05-2015 for a stay in Dec 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mountain Star. The accommodation was comfortable, warm and cosy, and the features like under-floor heating and hot tub were a real bonus. The area was quiet so our evenings were peaceful. The bus stop at the bottom of the complex driveway made it really easy to get into Whistler, and once we had figured out that the easiest walking route back from Whistler village is to take the Excalibur gondola to the upper parking lot. This got us to the elevation of the path coming off the Merlin slope to Painted Cliff Rd so avoiding struggling up the slippery ski slope from Blackcomb base. The views from the lounge onto the mountains were also stunning. I really can't say that I would have wanted anything more. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Excellent home away from home in Whistler

Dean from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Dec-22-2014 for a stay in Dec 2014

We really enjoyed our stay. The townhouse was well stocked with basic kitchen and clothes washing supplies. It was clean, well kept and homey. We were happy to find that a baby gate, pack'n play and high chair were included, making it much easier to care for our toddler. Both of our kids loved the stuffed bears and toys.

Best Snow Holiday Ever!!


A FlipKey verified reviewer from Sydney Australia
Date: Feb-17-2011

We stayed at Mountainstar for 16 nights. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us and the location is excellent, with a bus stop at the bottom of the drive way that will take you to the village and the slopes just steps away. The home was filled with everything you could imagine from kitchen/cooking utensils to Dvd's, and activities for the kids.

Lovely, well supplied home


Family of 4 from GA
Date: Jan-05-2011

This was a wonderful, clean, and well stocked condo with every comfort needed for our ski trip. Holly was very helpful with all our questions about our trip to Whistler.

good stay, perfect vacations

it is a really beautiful house where your stay will be guaranteed to be excellent and peaceful! the service is excelent and fully recommended! Definitely would return

Snow haven!


A FlipKey verified reviewer from Singapore
Date: Jan-04-2011

We loved it. The apartment was clean and extremely well stocked with all the essentials of a home. We discovered how easy it was to use the outdoor grill. There were also an electric knife (!!), an electric wok and a big rice cooker. It made cooking dinner really efficient and easy. The dishwasher was a dream too. We also loved the way the chalet has been furnished, with lots of paintings of skiing, reminding us of our days on the slopes. I especially loved the drawing of the crystal hut in the downstairs bathroom because we finally discovered the belgium waffles on the slopes. Sadly made it there only once. To people reading this, go early otherwise the crystal hut becomes unbearably crowded. The kids also really really liked the hot tub. They would get out of their ski clothes quickly to go sit in the tub and stare at the mountain tops in the distance if it was still light. I would rate this one of the best homes away from home that we have stayed in, Thank you Holly and the Cherrys for helping us have a fantastic holiday. It was sooo great!!
