Vacation Rental Reviews by alluraDirect

Excellent accommodation in Whistler

John from Kitchener, Canada
Date: Feb-17-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

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.
