About Tamara

We are a family of four who live in Whistler. We ski every weekend, and in the summer you can usually find us in the bike park or at one of the local lakes. We love Whistler, and we enjoy hosting people in this place that we're lucky enough to call home.

Tamara purchased this condo in 2007

Why Tamara chose Whistler

Marketplace Lodge is a great location because it's in the heart of the village close to all of Whistler's action, all season long. We're not located above nightclubs, just a lively and vibrant village atmosphere. We stroll to the restaurants and we're close to all of the amenities such as the grocery store, the drug store and the liquor store, still feeling as though we're in a mountain village.

What makes this condo unique

Our view in the morning is beautiful Blackcomb and Whistler mountains as a backdrop to the Olympic Plaza, home of the Olympic Medals Ceremonies. One quick ride in the elevator brings us to Starbucks, and a 10 minute stroll or a 5 minute free shuttle brings us to the lifts!

Fantastic Views!! Great Value!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in Whistler over the weekend to attend a friends wedding. We had never booked a VRBO before so thought we'd try it. So glad this little gem was our first experience. Tamara was very quick in getting back to us. We LOVED the window seat. It was our favourite spot. We spent all 3 nights sitting in the window with the lights off, drinking tea and staring out to the beautiful open area lit with colourful lights with the mountains in the background. It was truly magical. The underground parking was super convenient. We parked on Friday and didn't move the truck until Monday when we checked out. We walked everywhere!

Very small things: only 1 tea towel in the kitchen. We needed a blender and went out to by a small one. Queen size bed - we are used to a king.

We thought it would be noisy because of the location, and it was a weekend, but it was remarkably quiet. The entire unit was very clean.

We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Thank you Tamara!

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Whistler and our stay in this condo and wish that we could have stayed longer. It was truly one of the best condo rental experiences we've had. The condo is perfectly updated, clean, simple and in the most fantastic location. It is located in great proximity to a supermarket and all sorts of shops and restaurants and it's just a short walk to the ski lifts.

The window seat was lovely - it was so fun to sit and watch the snow fall and all the action in and around the village. The bed was perfect - great quality mattress and very nice linens. The bathroom was very clean and designed very well - plenty of room around the sink for your bathroom items, the tub is a very nice large soaking tub, the shower was great, and bathroom linens were very nice. The kitchen was also well designed - simple, clean and had exactly what you needed. There is a very small balcony with two high folding chairs, so you can also sit outside and view the village scene. And finally, the parking/access was very easy and the community hot-tub was clean.

Three suggestions: bring beach towels for the hot tub (no hot-tub towels available), bring games along if your family enjoys game nights (there are no games), and also note that the fold out couch is ok for one or two small children, but the mattress sags and isn't suitable for adults. Other than that - this was a perfect stay! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks Crystal, for your very positive and detailed review of our property! I'm so happy that you had a fantastic Whistler experience, that's always wonderful for me to hear. I also appreciate that you mention our sofa bed is suitable for children, our condo really is a better choice for a family with small children or a couple. Much appreciated, I hope that you'll visit us in Whistler again soon!

Loved the window seat...

  • 5 of 5

The weekend weather was rather gloomy, rain, rain and more rain! But the place had an awesome window seat overlooking the plaza which was great to sit and people watch as they splashed through the puddles. Thanks for a great place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for visiting Whistler and staying in our condo. I've spent countless hours gazing out of that window and there's always something happening, rain or shine, winter or summer. Please come back and stay again sometime!

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the condo for 2 weeks in August with my son and it was fantastic. Perfect location, clean, quiet and well equipped for a 'home away from home'; we could not have asked for more. The owner was extremely helpful and quick to reply with answers to any questions about the condo and our stay; the friendly and efficient on site care takers were an added bonus when we needed help with the intercom system and satellite t.v. :)

I can't wait for a return visit and will definitely be staying here ... loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback! I'm thrilled that you had a great vacation with your son, I know you were really looking forward to it. You were an excellent guest and both Cristina, our cleaner, and I truly appreciated how well you took care of the condo and that you left it in perfect order - thank you. Please come back to stay again anytime!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review, Joshua, much appreciated! I'm pleased that you liked our condo and appreciated its great location. I've tried to contact you to find out what was wrong with the air conditioner? We communicated several times throughout your stay and you didn't mention it wasn't working, and when I received your review I immediately sent maintenance and they couldn't find a problem - they changed the batteries on the view display but the unit's working perfectly? All of my guests since your stay have said it's working fine so I'm confused about your comment, but again I'm happy that you enjoyed Whistler, you're welcome back anytime!
