About Holly Johnson

We live in Vancouver, BC. We are the original owners of our Mountain Star home and have been renting it to guests since 1998. We spend as much time here as we can, and our sons and their families enjoy spending time here also. In the summer we love to hike, ride bikes and ride the Zip Line. In the winter we ski, both down hill and cross country. We hope you'll love Whistler as much as we do! The Cherrys

Holly Johnson purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Holly Johnson chose Upper Village

Mountain Star is the highest ski in ski out location on Blackcomb Mountain, which affords us easy access to the slopes and beautiful views across Whistler Valley.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great family vacation at Whistler! We came from 3 states and came together here to see and spend time with each other. The mountain is absolutely amazing - magical - a winter wonderland.

The house was warm and cozy and we look forward to coming again sometime in the future.

We loved the Hot Tub and being able to ski in and out.

Perfect Ski In & Out Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with everything we needed right here. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids. Space enough for all to relax plus ski or snowboard to the door. Hot tub was absolutely fantastic, WiFi and big TV (updated since the photos) were great for the kids. Kitchen was stocked with most things needed to prepare proper family meals. The free bus every 10mins meant we could enjoy the peace of being higher up the mountain but easily get to the shops and restaurants. Ski rentals were close by too at Coast Suites and prices are fixed by the Whistler Mountain company meaning cost is the same despite being higher up the mountain. There was a mass of snow everywhere on arrival with one day of fresh powder when the lift lines were very long (45min wait) but every other day we skied down to the Wizard chair and were up at Rendezvous within 30mins. We preferred the snow conditions on Blackcomb mountain but the Peak to Peak gondola made access to Whistler mountain easy. There is free secure underground parking close by if you have a car and a drop off space right outside the next door Chalet.

The only negatives were that Whistler is busier and prices are higher over the New Year holiday but difficult for us to avoid going away over school holidays. The whole resort does have a premium feel but I have never found skiing to be a cheap holiday.

Home run back to the Chalet was tricky for me on a snowboard, needs a decent amount of speed carried through the first 2 corners but after that was a bit too speedy. There is a YouTube video of the run (to Horstman House with Mountain Star access at 3:00). Access to the main slope in the morning was a short walk to the path next to Coast Suites.

Perfect location, well appointed. I think it suits families, people looking for direct slope access and those not necessarily wanting busy nightlife at their doorstep (although the free bus does run until late). Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

Loverly home, plenty of room for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

Big rooms, fire place, great hot tub, very comfortable for 5 with 3 adult children. It felt like home. Great location although not easily ski in / out, through trees. Only 3min walk to lower Blackcomb run and then ski down to lift. Easily ski back to same spot for same walk back- no problem.

Everything you could want in house, but could not find the iron?

Could not recommend more highly. Loved it.

Summertime quiet!!! Lovely hot tub.
