  • Most Excellent Retreat!

    "Our group of the '4 Muskateers' enjoyed a wonderful 4 days in your home. We were very comfortable;great amenities, lots of space to meet as a group in addition to very cozy individual spaces for 'alone time'. The hot tub was very much appreciated and sitting there amongst the amazing scenery was very rejeuventating. Our ziplliners were definitely pumped! We would not hesitate to recommend this 'oasis' to anyone who wants to visit Whistler and we look forward to a return visit! Thanks Anita for all your help and information to make this amazing vacation happen."

  • Incredible for the price

    "We rented Penny's condo for a week in February and it was perfect! The unit is very spacious - we had plenty of space for ourselves, our 2 year old lab puppy and a friend. Everything is in excellent condition and in a great location, straight across Marketplace and the shuttle stop to bring you straight to the ski lifts. Penny's directions were extremely straight forward, although we are from Vancouver and are very familiar with Whistler, so maybe this is why we didn't have any issue. Parking is secured and very close to the entrance of the condo. Penny contacted us by email during our stay to let us know her husband would stop by to drop off some knives (it seems knives had disappeared during a previous stay), which was greatly appreciated. My only pet peeve was the fireplace on a timer that ticks down from 60 minutes - takes a bit of the relaxing atmosphere when all you can hear is the tic-tic-tic on the wall!!! That aside, I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who wants to spend a few days in Whistler!"

  • Amazing Ski in Ski Out

    "My family and I went to Taluswood on a Family Holiday. We had an amazing time. The home is great for big families. It was like a home away from home. It was very clean when we arrived and the nice welcome details left us really awed. Communication with the owner was facilitated very easily and they even sent me a text during our trip to confirm that everything was running smoothly. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a great and quiet place to stay."

Whistler Travel Tips

Just two hours north of Vancouver you'll find Whistler, a top Canadian resort destination that's great for a visit year-round. This spot is situated near Whistler and Blackcomb mountains with a lively base village. In the winter, it's the perfect spot to enjoy hours of skiing, snowboarding and other exciting cold weather activities. When the weather warms up, Whistler offers championship golf courses, plenty of hiking and biking trails, and much more.

All year long you can peruse the variety of shops in Whistler and try the different bars and restaurants for delicious meals and drinks.

Whistler was so named for the furry animals in the area that sound like they're whistling. The area is centered around four main neighborhoods: Whistler Village, Village North, Upper Village and Creekside.

Cold Weather Activities

- Whistler Blackcomb: For some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the area, head to Whistler Blackcomb. This was the official skiing spot for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whistler and Blackcomb are side-by-side mountains that offer collectively more than 200 marked runs, more than 8,000 acres of terrain, 14 alpine bowls and three glaciers. This spot receives more than 430 inches of snow each year, making it one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Whether you're an avid skier or snowboarder or it will be your first time on a run, you're sure to have a great experience with with so many different trail options.

- Sleigh rides: If you've traveled with your sweetheart or your family, a Blackcomb horse drawn sleigh ride is a must. It's a perfect way to enjoy the winter wonderland as you glide across the snow. Snuggle up under a warm, cozy blanket, sip hot chocolate and listen to the jingle bells as the Percheron draft horses pull you through the snow-covered forest trails.

- Snowshoe trails: Enjoy a winter walk with snowshoes. Whistler offers a variety of trails like Trapper's Trail, Natural Mystic Tour, Winter Wonderland and more where you can explore the natural scenery and keep an eye out for local wildlife. Snowshoeing is a fun activity for people of all ages, and you can rent snowshoes if you don't own a pair.

- Whistler Day Spa: After all the vigorous activities like skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, your body is bound to feel a little sore. Sooth your aching muscles and allow yourself to relax with a trip to the Whistler Day Spa. Massage therapists will work out painful knots and ease any tension built up in your body. Estheticians will care for your windblown skin with a healing, moisturizing facial. You can even treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure so your feet and hands sparkle.

- Barefoot Bistro: When it's chilly outside, there's nothing more comforting than a warm, delicious home-cooked meal. You'll find just that at Barefoot Bistro, a French bistro-style champagne bar and restaurant. Sip some some Dom Perignon (served by the glass) and dine on exceptional French cuisine. On most weekends, you can enjoy live jazz music.

Warm Weather Activities

- Amsterdam Cafe and Pub: When the weather is warm, you can spend a wonderful evening dining on the charming outdoor patio of the Amsterdam Cafe and Pub. Dine on traditional pub fare like shepherd's pie, burgers, pasta and more as you check out the local scenery.

- Hit the beach: In the summer months, spending time at the beach is a must, and Whistler provides a variety of options where you can soak up the sun and splash around in the water. Lakeside Park is great for families, with a kid's play area, picnic tables and a barbecue. Swim in the warm waters or rent a canoe, boat or windsurf for an adventure. Rainbow Park is another terrific option, with sandy shores, volleyball courts and a large dock floating offshore for swimmers to hang out.

- Wedge Rafting: Thrill seekers will love the experience of river rafting with Wedge Rafting. White water tours are offered between based on a range of difficulty from class 1 to class 4 rapids. A professional guide will take you down Whistler's rivers as you navigate the rapids.

- Whistler Museum: Escape the heat with a trip to the the Whistler Museum, where you can learn about the area's natural history and mountain life. There are a variety of exhibits that anyone, no matter their age, can enjoy. You can also be led by a guide with a Valley of Dreams walking tour or check out the multimedia presentations.
