My brother was visiting from Winnipeg and wanted to go to Whistler. I saw Karen Thomas's condo on this site and booked it. It was a great place to stay and for a very reasonable price. The walk to the village is not that long but there Is a free shuttle right outside the front door. The condo is great and has everything you need right down to dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be going back.

Comfortable and convenient.
danniezee from Vancouver, Canada
The condo is clean and welcoming, and within a 10 min walk to the ski lifts. Having two parking spots was luxurious. The small, shared hot tub was a great place to stargaze on a clear night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Karen!
We all shared great memories at Karens welcoming home.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from North Vancouver
When I arrived at Karen's place with my girlfriend we were shocked to see how wonderful and welcoming it truly was. Everything was neat and tidy. For the price you couldn't go wrong. Everything was there including a full size operating fridge, dishwasher, pots and pans, you name it.. they had it. A lot of space which was great so no one felt crowded or claustrophobic. The only thing that went wrong was their lock to the master bedroom bathroom was lose and it wouldn't lock. Other than that I only have great things to say about Karen's humble abode.
Had a lot of fun
A FlipKey verified reviewer from vancouver
It was awesome. The location was right in front of a bus stop that easily transported us to the village and the day lodge. There was also a trail nearby that led directly to the day lodge slopes. Awesome. Did not want to leave.
Great Whister Condo
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
Karen's place in whistler is very nicely furnished, spacious and conveniently located with easy access to the ski slopes in winter and only a short walk to Blackcomb base and Whistler Village in the summer. Visitor parking was easily available both times I stayed.
Danesh Farnia from WA
We stayed at Karen Thomas's quaint vacation home during the american Thanksgiving holiday. The condo was well organized with all the comforts of home and everything was clean and in working condition. The location was great too with the bus shuttle right in the front of the condo. We specially appreciated that we had a second parking space in the visitors space for a second car. Overall we were pleased with our decision to stay at this condo. We will try again to stay here next time we're up visiting. ~Cheers
Fun with Friends
Fergie from ID
We came to BC for a friends week of biking and fun. The place was great, it was roomy, clean and just a great deal for your money. Before we even left all of us discussed coming back the next year. One of the guys in our group forgot a key in his bag and called the owner and she was very pleasant about the situation. We couldnt have asked for a better place. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful place with us. Boise bike crew...
