Frequently Asked Questions

Former Guest Comments

Want to see what previous guests have to say? Here are a few of the comments received from last winter season. <li>We arrived yesterday evening. Your instructions were perfect. We love your vacation home. It is picture postcard perfect. Mary loved the layout, and all the information you provided made everything very easy to find. So thank you so much. Bernie New South Wales, Australia </li> <li>We had a fantastic time at Whistler, your house is so beautiful and in such a great location. The snow was amazing, we didn't want to leave! Thanks again, it was a wondeful vacation. Monica Baltimore, Maryland</li> <li>You have such a beautiful home in a very nice development. With the exception of an occasional loud neighbor enjoying their hottub (which was really no big deal), we had no complaints. And we all loved the ski in ski out and we got so used to our "home" that we ended up only going out for dinner once. Very comfortable. Yes, we had to brave record cold temperatures, and went through lots of hand and boot warmers, but the cold kept the snow in reasonable shape. As for the downstairs bathroom floor, it actually did end up getting warm. I think that because it took longer than the kitchen floor that we thought it wasn't working. But no worries. It worked just fine!! We are already talking about another Whistler trip next winter, and a possible visit this summer to do some mt. biking and other summer activities. Thanks again for extending us the use of your home!! David S. Portland, OR</li>
More comments. <li>Thanks SO much for sharing your condo with us. We got back last night, and had a wonderful time. Got to do lots of fun actitvities...mntn biking, kayaking, ziplining, hiking down from the top of the gondola ride, the boys went flyfishing. The condo was great-- very clean, comfortable, and you had all the right stuff in it to make it easy on guests, from the bbq to the spices to the videos to the laundry soap!! Nancy, Redmond, WA </li> <li>We had a very relaxing time at your lovely townhome. Everything was in good order and the extras such as cookbooks and food staples were much appreciated. The natural light and the view, and of course the ski in/out location made your home one of the best we've stayed at in Whistler. Friends of ours that visited us in Whistler that week were equally impressed, and will likely be looking to rent your home. Thanks again and we hope to be back soon, Eva and Craig Vancouver BC</li>

About Us

We've been enjoying Whistler for many years and know lot's about the area, just ask! We've been enjoying Whistler for many years and know lot's about the area, just ask!

We live in Vancouver but we spend as much time as we can in this very special place that we love all year around.

We have been skiing, riding, hiking and biking at Whistler since the early 90's, and have recently bought our place at Mountainstar. We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect condo, and location and we are really pleased.  We wanted to be right on the Mountain for skiing and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature but also be close enough to the village and all that it offers.  We really like being able to park our car and forget about it until we have to leave.

We know a myriad of details about the village and the mountains both in the winter and summer seasons; please ask!
