See what a few of our Guests have had to say:

"We had a great time staying at your place at Whistler.  Your apartment is lovely and very well equipped.  We stayed at places similar to yours when we go up there and yours is by far the most comfortable and best decorated!!!  I liked the idea of extra set of dishes, towel rods ...all those little things help make your visitors' vacation even more comfortable.  Thank you for the lovely chocolates!!!  


We will definitely keep your place in mind for our future visits to Whistler.  Please, feel free to contact me any time you have a last minute cancellation.

 "All my family really liked our vacation in Whistler. The mountains are beautiful with lots of snow. We especially enjoyed coming to your warm and cosy apartment after a day outside. We had everything we needed. Thank you for an opportunity to stay in your hospitable vacation home. If we ever decide to visit Whistler again, it is going to be our first choice."

Rates are by the night for up to 4 occupants and posted in Canadian currency. Rates are non-negotiable.

Minimum night stay requirements are also firm - due to the high fixed cost of housekeeping, we are unable to accommodate short stays.

Please do not email us to negotiate on rates or reduce the minimum night stay requirement.  Unfortunately our high operating costs do not make it feasible to lower rates or minimum night stay requirements and we are not able to be flexible on these requirements. 

Parking, as with many places in Whistler, is an additional cost per day, per car if you are driving.

 About Us

My mother (Irma) and myself (Tamara) love to escape the city and enjoy the fresh outdoors. One day over Easter break I took my Mom skiing (the first time in 10 years for her - and over 25 years since the last time she was in Whistler). She loved it so much that she thought this would be the ideal place to purchase a vacation home. So close to nature's activities, yet so close to the amentities and comforts of home. And this is how the idea of the Irmara Vacation Place was born! We hope that you have as many enjoyable times in our Whistler vacation home as we have!
