Guest Feedback

Our family would like to say a big "Thank You!" to you for allowing us to rent your townhouse. Your "home-away-from-home" was great and provided us with a lot of space so we could "spread out" and not sit one on top of the other (as in a hotel room setting). The location couldn't have been better for the many walks we took, the bike riding we did, and the quiet, relaxation we were looking forward to. The best feature (although we loved everything about this unit) was the downstairs shower. We fell in love with those shower heads! Although it's back to work today, we all came back feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated and carry along with us some very special family memories we created on this past week up at Whistler. - Roland B.

We just returned home from your lovely condo and wanted to thank you for the time spent there while in Whistler. Your condo was really homey, had more amenities then most and I was completely overwhelmed by what you provided in the kitchen for our use.?Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your “home away from home”. - Alana L.

Let me start by saying that we have stayed in 4 other places in Whistler and yours is by far our favourite. Quiet, yet close to all the activities. The kitchen was fabulous...I like to cook so having all the cooking utensils was incredible. The downstairs shower was loved by everyone! The robes in each room were a really nice touch. - Mona W.

My friends & I just arrived back in England today. We had a fabulous time in Whistler. You have a lovely house & we enjoyed ourselves very much. You've refurbished to a high level. We found the ski in/out but to be honest, the bus service was so good that we didn't bother using it. We also had some great powder skiing. Thanks once again for tips about IGA, restaurants etc. - Y. G. ONG

We had a great vacation at your place. The skiing was outstanding & we were very pleased with the lodging (the location was perfect for us, as were the baby-friendly amenities). We go to Whistler a few times a year & your place is by far the best fit we've had in a long while. We hope to become regular renters!  - Jason T.

Great place with lots of space in the living areas as well as bedrooms. Each bedroom is really nice, and our group was actually pretty surprised at how big the bedroom with the bunk beds is. The property is steps away from the free Whistler shuttle #5, which made getting to the gondola super easy. We just took the bus up the hill (2 stops) and got off the top to ski to the Blackcomb gondola. Also love that the owners are super responsive to our questions leading up and during the stay. Thanks for having us!

Ski in at day's end and walk back to apres ski and hot tub. Alternatively, you can walk 20 easy paces to the free shuttle that comes by often daily and be whisked in minutes down to the central Village & the Whistler & Blackcomb Gondola bases. The stop is straight out our front door. Our guests say that the free shuttle is incredible for skiing AND apres ski in the Village.
