Perfect stay!

Marissa from sherwood park, Canada
Date: Jan-12-2016 for a stay in Dec 2015

My family and I stayed at Grey Hawk Dec 26-Jan 2 and it was perfect for us. We were a total of 5 adults and a 3 year old. The condo was very clean, had all the essentials we needed, and very spacious. We were all very comfortable and the sound proofing is excellent! So if you do have a family member with the freight train snores you can rest easy you will not hear it in the separate bedrooms.

The location was also very convenient despite not being in the village. There is a nice walk around the golf course to get you to the village, but be sure you take the right entrance unless you are looking for a very long (still nice, but long) walk to the village. The views from the condo are breathtaking. You can sit in the living room for hours just staring outside at the mountains. Beautiful, just beautiful!

The hot tub was on every night except one because of the colder temp but also a great amenity. There is a treadmill and bike in the activities room downstairs which I took advantage of while there. There is also some room to do some exercises if you want but no weights or other equipment. The neighborhood is also very nice and I was able to go out for a run without any concerns.

Beautiful condo with a perfect view


Jbdavids from
Date: Feb-23-2014

We just got back from a week long stay in whistler and have nothing but nice things to say about this place. The unit is exquisitely maintained and clean. Everything appears recently renovated with all new appliances. The mountain view through the large windows in the living room was perfect. The location is just a few minutes from the village by car or a very short inexpensive cab ride at night. Would definitely recommend.

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Victoria BC
Date: Apr-05-2013

We rented this beautiful ski home from David and Kathleen. The place was exquisite with plenty of room for our family of five. We loved the views and the heated floors. The kitchen was modern with new appliances. The underground parking was handy as was the proximity to the slopes. We would definitely go back. The owners were helpful and responsive to our questions. We felt very welcome. Thanks David and Kathleen.
