We had a great stay at the Ptarmigan condo. Everything was in order when we arrived. Most of our time was spent on the slopes and in the village but when we were relaxing at the condo there was plenty of room and amenities. Dale's recommendations and notes really helped out for a group of first timers to the area. Thanks for having us and I would highly recommend staying here.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

We enjoyed an excellent experience with this property right from the initial rental transaction through to the completion of our vacation. The condo is extremely clean, organized and very well appointed - great value. It is in close proximity to everything that Whistler has to offer. The owners provided us with a complete package including personal recommendations for activities, restaurants, etc. that proved invaluable during our stay. They also followed up with us during our stay to ensure that all was in order - very much appreciated. I would highly recommend this property and its owners to anyone wishing to have an enjoyable, worry-free Whistler vacation.View Full Review
