About Danielle D'Amour

I live just outside Calgary, Alberta with 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 Apartment in 2006

Why Danielle D'Amour chose Columbia-Shuswap C

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 Apartment 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.

                                                                          Bill F.

                                                                          Very disappointed with this suite. Heating wasn't working, "full" kitchen missing oven and dishwasher, small, no closet, few places to hang clothes. Poorly soundproofed from the suite next door. Our friends stayed in the suite next door over the same weekend, paid virtually the same price and that suite was twice the size with a very nice private outside area.

                                                                          Relatively poor value, would not stay here again.

                                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                                          I understand you would be frustrated that it was chilly on Saturday. The storm reset my thermostat to 19 degrees. Which I was able to rectify that same day. I would recommend when you book through VRBO that you read the amenities. It is stated in my description that there is no oven... only a cook top stove and no dishwasher. The suite is as described on the website. I do agree, there is not place to hang clothes. I thank you for your comments, as it allows me to make changes every year to make improvements. I have purchased a Hall Tree to hang clothes and additional heaters for each suite. I did have heaters for each suite last winter, but it would seem that some have have gone missing since then and I was not aware. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Everyone has always really loved the space before.

                                                                          Great getaway!

                                                                          Michelle S.Summerland

                                                                          We enjoyed our weekend away at Swansea Point in Danielle's vacation rental. The unit was a good size and had everything that we could possibly need. The unit was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The unit was a short walk away from a quiet, sandy beach. We used the unit primarily as a means of exploring the area, so also enjoyed day trips to Sicamous, Salmon Arm and Revelstoke to do some hiking. Danielle was very responsible and helpful. I highly recommend this unit!

                                                                          My family and really enjoyed staying in this suite. It was stocked with everything we needed and had great access to the lake. There were many great places to walk with my 1 and 3 year old daughter and all the neighbors are very courteous. We would love to return again next summer but would probably try to get the larger upstairs suite.
