Special Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights in the winter and had a great experience. Four adults, five kids and a dog. There is a ton of space, it's clean and there is a lot to do in the house. We didn't have time to do everything that we wanted. Also the big dining table was great for our group. The hot tub was great, it's huge and hot. Sue explains everything so well that it is hard for me to understand how there could ever be an issue. The questions I did have were answered immediately. We would stay again. Thanks Sue!

So much potential

  • 2 of 5

Our family was very excited to come across this property to rent. We have a very large family and since we are spread out over different provinces it has become tradition to meet in Fairmont for a ski holiday. Husbands family vacation rental seemed to have everything to suit our needs.

Honestly though, the owners should take more pictures because the ones on this site don't even come close to doing the property justice. The yard, location and house were all unbelievable. The general floor plan of the house and bedroom setup was ideal for a large group. The only real downside to the actual house itself was the size of the kitchen. It was difficult to maneuver around but overall it was manageable.

We did have several hiccups during our week stay. First, the hot tub was not full enough. We noticed this immediately and after a couple days we were concerned about the level falling below the return. As we didn't have any option for filling the tub we spent half a day tracking buckets of water from the sink to ensure the water level remained high enough not to cause any issues.

Second, we found the dishwasher was leaking so luckily we managed to catch it early and spent a few hours fixing it.

Thirdly, as luck would have it the garburator also wasn't working. My father in law and brother in law spent the afternoon taking it apart to fix it as well. The culprit turned out to be a straw that had gone down which we could confirm was not from us as we didn't have any.

The washer and dryer are older so beware; we struggled a bit with the dryer as it was taking approximately 2 hours to dry a load.

The house had a ton of games and movies which was also an added bonus. We were lucky enough to be able to take advantage of both but sadly the video game machine that is advertised wasn't working either.

I would recommend the homeowners leave more details as to what they expect in regards to cleaning prior to leaving. We have been renting property in Fairmont for over 20 years with never an issue. Although we left the property in the condition we found it (with added repairs) the homeowner has alleged damages/cleaning concerns that weren't present during our stay.

I find this very disheartening as even with all the issues we really did enjoy our time. I would recommend that anyone renting this property be cognizant of the conditions during your stay. Take lots of pictures before and after to document any concerns and cover yourself.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to rate our property, we appreciate all comments and even criticism. Our hope is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and we try to go above and beyond to make this possible. We ask that all guests advise us of any issues that arise during their stay so that we can fix these issues immediately, we can not fix what we are not aware of. We understand accidents happen but we do hold our guests accountable for damages they have caused. It is very rare that we have to charge people for any extra cleaning and/or damages and appreciate those guests who understand this policy. When you stay at our property we ask that you treat it with the respect, as you are a guest in our future retirement home. Regards Kurt and Sue Husband

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into the house I was amazed! The pictures on here do not do the house or the property justice. Starting with the yard.....from the three hammocks to backing onto the golf course and then there is a creek right there! But wait, look around the corner and there is a fire pit with lots of wood to use, how could you go wrong? Oh did I mention the hot tub, and the wrap around deck?

Then you go into the house.....we have rented quite a few houses and this one is by far the best stocked house. They have thought of everything: from 100's of DVD's to the arcade game with 40+ games on it; the one cabinet is full of board games and puzzles; the kitchen....spices, crockpots, egg poacher, grills, creamers, coffee, tea.......absolutely anything you would need; The laundry room... soap, cleaners you name it!! We also found a sewing kit to help us out before we went to the wedding we were there for!

We wish we could have stayed longer!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! We spent a weekend snowboarding and soaking in the hot springs and the location of the house is perfect, really close to the resort. The house has everything you need and lots to do with pool table, dartboard, puzzles, board games and a great selection of movies and video games. Also the hot tub was great and the yard is big although we didn't spend much time outside as we were there in winter. We will definitely come back in the future :)

Great family Thanksgiving gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a week at this lovely house. The beautiful yard was GREAT for our 5 little ones and their families. Great DVD and video selection, if we had had time! The video game was a little hard to get going, but we figured it out. Could use a few more pointers on this and the satellite TV system. The deck is beautiful and spacious, beds comfortable, every dish and appliance we needed. The kitchen is small - not for group cooking at all, but we just appointed a chief for each meal. Roomy pantry, fridge a bit on the small side for a week's stay. Lots of room at the table for meals and games. Adults and children alike enjoyed the hot tub, though we didn't attempt the sauna. A bed for everyone in the family was great, and nice that we didn't have to bring our own playpen, booster chairs or highchair.

The owner was incredibly helpful and patient, everything was clean and in great repair. There were toys, books and puzzles for the kids, a game console, plus the arcade game. (something they've never seen before is always great!) What kid doesn't love a bunk bed?

Just a couple of concerns: The outdoor lighting for the walk and driveway were very dim - the solar lights don't give off enough wattage! And there is no outdoor porch light in the front. We saw a motion sensor light on the garage, but it didn't seem to work, and could not find a switch for it. The basement bathroom lighting is also very dim.

Our four generation family fit very well in this home, and for our 35th annual Thanksgiving gathering, it was a hit! Thanks to the Husbands for a special place to make family memories.

fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fantastic time during our stay. The yard is amazing, the pictures don't do it justice! The house is well stocked, everything we could need or want was there. The beds were comfortable and everything was spotless.

The only complaint was that the arcade game in yhe pictures was not there (the kids were looking forward to playing it).

we all very much enjoyed our stay in your comfortable home, Sue is very easy ro deal with and will definitely be back!
