About Sandi & Rob Christensen

The condo was purchased new in 2008. We love the location of this condo, the Columbia Valley has so much to offer all year round. Lake Windermere is a beautiful swimming lake and very clean. The Columbia river filters through the lake and by mid-summer the lake is quite warm.

Why Sandi & Rob Christensen chose Lake Windermere

Location! Location! Location! We love the valley, the lake and the quaint town of Invermere. It offers something for everyone all year long. The Saturday farmers market is wonderful. There are two hot springs within a 20 minute drive. <a href="http://www.vrbo.com/237066" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://www.vrbo.com/haow/api/image/vrbo/vrbo/237066/tenure" alt="HomeAway Property" style="border:none;"/></a>

What makes this condo unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great location, so close to the beach. Having TV cable on rainy days occupied our children.

We would love to come back next year!

Excellent place to stay for a family with 2 kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this condo located a couple of minutes away from the beach area on the lake. Also nearby - some food, boats rental, canoe / kayak rental (everything withing walking distance).

Inside the condo there was plenty of room for 4, everything in a good condition. Underground parking is a blessing for hot summer days!

Highly recommended!

Clean

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well-kept, with awesome access to the lake. High quality windows and patio door kept the considerable traffic and train noise at bay unless you were on the deck. BBQ functioned well, unit owner kept in excellent contact pre-visit. Construction details were a little shoddy, cupboard door was loose, but didn't detract from overall good experience.

Great Condo and Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice comfortable condo just as described. Fantastic location for a beach / mountain vacation.The nephews made good use of the pool and we BBQ'd on the patio every evening. Owners were very attentive to any questions we had. Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful, Clean and Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend at this property and we loved every moment of our stay. They renter was friendly, easy to get ahold of, accommodating and honest. The hot tub was perfect for winter, we will definitely be back in summer to try the pool and beautiful lake!! Really glad we came across this place. It is a spacious, clean condo in a prime location. The A&W was in walking distance so we could walk over and grab a breakfast sandwich. Fantastic place! Thanks again for having us! We'll be back!

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

This was the worst vacation rental experience we have experienced. In general vacation rentals have strived to ensure such a good reputation, that you expect the listing to be as represented, and the owners to be honest, and reliable. I have rented homes in Maui, Jasper, Vancouver, and Boston. All met or exceeded my expectations until this one.

When we arrived, we went to the underground parking. Someone was in our spot. Fortunately the person was their cleaning their vehicle. They told just that the owner gave them permission to use the spot, and if it was necessary they would move their vehicle in the next 15 minutes. The next disappointment was the wifi. I know this doesn't seem like a big deal in a vacation rental, however we were there over New Years. We planned it as a working vacation, and had important reports/documents to finish for work prior to the end of the year. We contacted the owners, and did not receive a response. we were patient and waited 24 hours, and used the wifi at A&W, before contacting them again. The response was and I quote "Sorry I'm away with very limited wifi. I can only suggest you try and call shaw". Obviously when we called Shaw they would not deal with us, as it was not our account. Another disappointment was the condo itself. It was extremely depressing. It was dark, and closed off. The hallways smelled odd. In addition, the master bed quilt was torn in many areas with exposed cotton poking out all over the place. The final straw, and the reason for my negative review was the fact that I had to ask for my damage deposit back 8 days after our rental ended. These renters are not professional, and you should be very hesitant renting this over priced Invermere rental.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry to hear you did not have a positive holiday experience. The VRBO listing accurately describes the condo and the photos reflect the current furnishings. The condo is fully stocked for visitors; paper products, liquid soaps, laundry soap, plastic wrap etc. The parking is clearly marked Private Parking and our unit # is noted on the sign. There is no reason for others to be parked in the parking stall. My apologies for the WIFI, this seems it was circumstantial but I understand the importance of WIFI when one is travelling. It’s a necessity! I appreciate you pointing out the damage to the master bed quilt, it was replaced last fall and it has been replaced. Damage deposits are typically refunded within 3-7 business days. Your damage deposit was refunded on the 4th business day after your departure and VRBO would have taken 1-2 business days to process it on their end. I appreciate you taking the time to provide me with your feedback. Sandi & Rob

Pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at the condo with our 3 young kids. The pool and hot tubs are great, and the building is very close to a beach and playground. The bunk beds were also a hit. Unfortunately, the unit is on the first floor facing the parking lot, so there is a fair amount of noise if windows are open, and we generally kept the curtains shut. There is aldo no wi-fi, but it's easy enough to cope without for a few days.

Overall, we had a pleasant time and would be happy to return.

Owner's Response: We had the WIFI connected on July 13, 2016. It seems we all like to be connected where ever we go! Sorry that it was after your stay but we would love to have you back next year! Sandi
