About Danielle D'Amour

I live just outside Calgary, Alberta with my daughter Danika. I bought Alpine Village Resort in 2006. Alpine Village Resort was a camp ground with 7 cabins and 21 camping stalls and a house. We developed the property into 18 lots consisting of 4 cabins and 13 RV lots and our House, which are now all privately owned (of course we kept the house). We decided in 2008 to convert our large house into three suites to rent out to the public. It was a fantastic experience for us.

Danielle D'Amour purchased this studio in 2006

Why Danielle D'Amour chose British Columbia

Swansea Point is a beautiful location; far from the noise of the Highway, secluded in its own little world. Yet we are only minutes away from Sicamous to get all the necessities. There are lots of mature trees, mountain and lake views. Plus the location to the lake/beach and boat launch is ideal. I fell in love right away. Once I am able to retire, my family will move here from Calgary.

What makes this studio unique

We have the best beds! Guests comments have stated that they want to take our beds home with them. We have top quality mattress' and memory foam pillows. You will sleep better than at home!

A suite guide has been prepared describing all the activities in the area, maps, and other info to get the best out of your trip.

We are extremely close to the boat launch and we have a large parking spot for a boat trailer.

There are many quad and sled trails in the near vicinity. A 40 minute drive to one of the best ski hills in Revelstoke and 40 minutes to the ski hill in Vernon.

We offer paddle board rentals to our guests.

Group rates for multi suite rentals.

Customized Yoga Retreats for larger groups.

Golf Packages available.

Good location for our purpose

  • 3 of 5

The initial impression was good, but our first day and night was rather cold with the air conditioning going and no way to use the thermostat as it was locked. The air fan was also extremely noisy at night. The bed was very comfy but we found the lightning very poor (living room light and bedside lamps), making any kind of reading very difficult. This studio suite is a very good size for 2 to 3 people with a large kitchen. Our friends were in the next door suite which was much smaller but cost the same as ours. We didn't understand that.

Owner's Response: Hello Jane, Thank you for your review of my property. I understand your frustration with the cool temperature. I believe the storm that rolled in that weekend reset my thermostat to 19 degrees. Although I was able to rectify the situation that day, it does not make for a very good impression on a short term stay. As a result, I purchased and installed a new thermostat with Wifi and scheduling system and additional radiator heaters for each suite. And, you are correct about the lighting. I looked into it and it would seem that the incorrect replacement bulbs were installed with low wattage, and one lamp was broken! I am not sure if that happened during your stay or after. But it will be taken care of. I do appreciate your feedback, as it allows me to make improvements for future guests. Thanks again, Danielle D'Amour

Excellent, beds amazingly comfortable. All the appliances and kitchen utensils we needed were there

  • 4 of 5

We were quite pleased to find everything that we needed was right there! The kitchen was excellent, very homey and welcoming. The units were clean,

and well maintained. Loved the little garden outside, the lights on the patio,

the whole experience was really excellent. The beach nearby was so peaceful. We really needed a restful, quiet retreat and that is what this was for us. We loved swimming in the crystal clear lake.

thank you for making our stay really wonderful.

Great getaway spot

  • 4 of 5

Thanks Danielle, for responding to our request so quickly. Even in the off season, the place was perfect. Not far off Hwy 97, and surrounded by a beautiful waterfront, great for walking. We could imagine the it is a bustling place in the summer. Kitchen was well equipped, where we entertained two others for Sunday night football, with nachos, pulled pork and ribs. Having the spices available to us was a special treat.

A great place to stay in the hot summer months at Mara Lake. Everything you could need for your stay is included. The a/c was especially nice to sleep in! I would recommend this property to anyone. We have stayed here the last 4 or 5 summers and have always been very happy! Thank you Danielle (we love Fritz)

A week of R&R on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We needed a week of Rest and Relaxation from a very busy life. We got just that. Apart from the thunderstorm that swept through the area, causing trees to fall on power lines and a 22 hour blackout and water shutoff for all of the Mara Lake area, it was a perfect getaway. We had to go to Salmon Arm to buy some candles which we left behind for the next occupants. (Hopefully they won't be needed).The suite was put together very well, including nice dishes, cookware and cutlery. There is a very nice BBQ on the large deck. Even board games to play. The bed was very comfortable, felt just like home. There are many beach accesses throughout Swansea Point all within walking distance. The closest is only 1 block away with a boat launch.There is not a lot of excitement in Swansea Point but if you are looking for somewhere quiet this is the place. Our tradition has always been to stop at D Dutchman's Dairy for an ice cream cone in Sicamous. The best you'll ever have.
