 About Us

While still living in Hong Kong, we discovered Whistler in 2002 during a family skiing holiday.  Not only did we fall in love with Whistler as an all season holiday destination, we fell in love with British Columbia and have called Vancouver home since 2007.

Father and 3 sons are avid skiers, while Mom is a reluctant tag-along.  However, there is plenty to do for everyone so Whistler remains one of our favorite holiday destinations.

We've had the privilege of owning this beautiful property since 2003, and have had many special memories with both family and friends. We look forward to welcoming you to our holiday home and wish you, your family, and friends the same magical moments here in Whistler.
