  • Family gathering

    "WOW! What a place and what a location. We were a group of 8 assorted close family over 3 generations and with 2 dogs. Eagles nest was just perfect for us. When 8 year old Sam walked into the house he said "Holy Macaroni" ! The house is stunning and Murray has equipped it so thoughtfully. We had fantastic weather and were able to swim in the cove and make use of the kayaks. The children loved Katherine Lake and were thrilled to see the Painted Turtles there as well as so many Eagles, Humming Birds, Deer, Chipmunks huge Starfish and Seals round the house. Sadly no Orcha - this time! The huge games room was a great success and so cool when it was too hot to be active outside. A really great family holiday with plenty of space to all enjoy quiet time as well as have fun together. Very special memories were made and we are still talking about it. Would love to return sometime or better still, win the lottery and make Murray an offer he can't refuse !!!"

  • LOVELY LITTLE COTTAGE NEAR WATER @ CULTUS

    "Had 7 family members staying & worked out as kids had Dome Tent up on the roof which also had a covered area with lots of chairs & barbeque. They saw a lot of the night sky from the roof deck. Everything was supplied (actually over supplied). TV worked good, all utilities worked good. Was happy with the Dishwasher & large fridge. Very clean. Near everything (minutes by walking) Our 2 small dogs were no problem as forest across the street. Lots of parking 4 or 5 vehicles & car garage. Everything from detergent to hair shampoo was there. Had good time but last 2 days a bit cool. Beds comfortable. Nice owners."

  • Central location

    "Centrally located, bright, and well appointed. We were very comfortable and could not have asked for a better place to explore the village by foot. Thank you so much!"

  • Great Location

    "The location of this unit is great for a family. It is very easy to access everything important. The facilities at the Aspens are good. Hot tubs/Pools/Common areas are clean and well maintained. The unit is well furnished. The size was bit small but still very manageable. The size of the unit is trade-off for the excellent location. Two complaints. First, the dishes/pots and pans were dirty upon our arrival. The housekeeping crew should have caught it. But shame on the previous renter for putting dirty pots/pans/dishes back into the cabinets. Second, we had a number of issues with the internet access. The router/modem needed to be rebooted daily. I'm sure Reshma will get this problem resolved as she was very responsive."

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.
