About Us

We started skiing Whistler in the early 70's.  Now that we are retired we go up all year round.  The spring and fall are especially great for walking, hiking and biking since there are fewer crowds and many restaurants offer great off season specials.  Summer is always full of activities as is winter.  We enjoy coming to our home at Whistler and try to make it comfortable for ourselves as well as our guests.

Reviews

Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

Pleasant


Give from Honolulu
Date: Mar-22-2014

Very spacious unit for a one bedroom. The kitchen is the most well stocked I've seen yet. Everything worked fine. The heater in the living room was a little weak, but there is also a fireplace to compliment.

Great little condo in fantastic location between Whistler and Bl


Paul from Edinburgh
Date: Feb-24-2014

We stayed 4 nights in mid Feb. Having previously only ever stayed in Creekside we were very impressed and happy with the location - 5 mins to Whistler village and less than 3 mins to Merlins at the foot of Blackcomb). Condo itself was homely and had a very well equipped kitchen. Booking went smoothly and owners even called during the stay just to check everything was to our liking. Thoroughly recommend - will definitely book again if/when we come back to Whistler.

Ski Holiday


Cottonwood Skiier from Tampa
Date: Feb-03-2014

This is a very nice condo in a perfect location close to both the Whistler and Blackcomb bases. This is a smaller condo complex situated in a low-key place away from the hustle/bustle of the village stroll. I liked everything about the condo and really appreciated several key items. These includes not having to worry about dealing with a management company or arrival/departure for keys and such; not paying for parking and having a dedicated parking spot; having a huge mud room for storing skis and gear as you walk through the front door; lots of open space to move around. The two things on the recommendation list are: 1) getting a newer mattress...the mattress is a bit saggy (not bad but showing its' age) and has some stains. 2) There is no garbage disposal in the kitchen which just requires more patience with dumping all leftovers and such into the trash. Overall, very nice condo, great value and would stay again.

A brilliant place to stay...


anon from London
Date: Jan-16-2014

From the service we received when booking from Douglas and Rose, we knew this was going to be a great place to stay. They answered any questions we had thoroughly and quickly. The pre-arrival pack had all the information we needed, so when we arrived we walked straight in and felt right at home. The location was great, about 3 minutes walk from Blackcomb gondola and 5 from Whistler - and similar to shops, restaurants etc... The actual property had absolutely everything we could have asked for. It was very spacious, yet cosy and we felt right at home straight away. If we return to Whistler (from UK) then I would look straight away at booking this place.

Nice clean condo


Lawrence from Brockville on
Date: Dec-19-2013

I enjoy being at your condo except for the outside parking rather that an inside spot. It always seems to snow when I am there Lawrence

A very comfortable place to stay at Whistler


Whistler fan from Bainbridge Island, WA
Date: Mar-28-2013

If you don't require room service and close proximity to the noisy night life, this comfortable, conveniently-located condo is a great place to stay at Whistler. Located in the upper village, it is convenient to the Blackcomb base, and an easy walk to all of the other activities in Whistler Village. Rose and Doug, the owners of this charming unit, have set up their place to include everything you will need to enjoy your stay. There is a comfortable queen-size bed, jetted tub, fireplace, fully set-up kitchen, two televisions, and comfortable furniture. There is also assigned free parking.
