While the weather outside can be harsh, inside "Our Whistler Retreat" was fantastic. The townhouse, home B12 had just been remodeled and it was exquisite. There was plenty of sleeping room for our group of seven. The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessary amenities for preparing meals and the covered area outside for the grill was a nice touch. The garage has been remodeled into a separate bedroom inside, and a great ski storage area outside, with a much needed boot and glove dryer, and it was all just a short walk to the village. This beautiful home will definitely be tops on my list for any return trips to Whistler! We had an unbelievable time and absolutely loved the home! You are tops on our list for next time!"

We loved the hot tub and the views of the mountain from the living room and enjoyed cooking in the well-appointed kitchen that had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this property for a larger family or group of couples (we had 3 couples and a dog) and would come again in a heartbeat. Thanks Ann!"

A.Winslow - Charleston, SC
"Even though the snow conditions weren't great we still had a great trip. One comment I received from everyone in the group is your unit has the best view of any that we've stayed in at Montebello and with the weather you almost needed shorts to sit on the patio in the afternoon. As you well know the floor plans and quality of the interiors keeps us coming back. Thanks again for you patience and flexibility during the reservation process and we are looking forward to next year (hopefully with more snow)."

"Everything from making inquiries, to booking, and, of course, our actual stay at Whistler was easy, straightforward and resulted in a fabulous girls weekend escape! The staff at Our Whistler Retreat were extremely helpful, addressed any questions quickly and provided a very detailed list of the home and directions. The house was fabulous, very comfortably and accommodated the seven of us, very well equipped kitchen for our foodie escape and great view of the mountains from the hot tub! We rented a pet friendly house and were thoroughly impressed at the standard of the house - very clean and fresh, you would never have thought any pet had been near the house! Location was fantastic. Easy walking to the lost lake, upper village and market square. All the convenience of being in the middle of Whistler but with none of the noise to go with it. We had a truly fun and relaxing weekend escape and would recommend staying with Our Whistler Retreat to anybody! Before the weekend was over, we were already talking about planning our return trip!"

"The homes are perfectly situated for taking part in the Ironman. It is an easy walk to the shuttle bus in the morning (to the start) as well as to the T2 (bike to run transition) and finish line (for spectators). The run route also passes a 'stones throw' away so my family did not need any transportation other than their feet to see me all day."
Dawn C - Canadian Ironman Competitor - Vancouver, BC
"Thank you for the welcome home. I want to assure you that our trip was very much enjoyed and I am very grateful for all your help in setting this up. The unit B2 that we stayed in was excellent.

Eric P - Calgary, AB
"After having a horrible experience renting properties directly from owners, Ann and Elizabeth from Our Whistler Retreat restored my faith in the idea! They provided amazing customer service and were always available to answer quick questions! They truly assisted in creating an amazing get together for my whole family during my father's 60th birthday! After this experience I have recommended them to many people, and wouldn't hesitate to use them again."
Naureen T-Hirji, B.Ed - Port Moody, BC
"...I also wanted to add that while our experience in that particular unit last weekend was not the best, my experience in dealing with you and Our Whistler Retreat is fantastic. You and your team are always very responsive, professional and, in general, wonderful to deal with. I have nothing but good things to say about Our Whistler Retreat. Look forward to keeping in touch. We are already talking about our next trip to Whistler - so I'm sure you will hear from me shortly."
Lisa R - North Vancouver, BC
"Thank you so much Ann! We had a fabulous time! Each year it gets better and better. We really enjoyed your place (B2). The backyard was FABULOUS for the kids (and dog).

Tricia S - Seattle, WA
"Our stay at A6 exceeded our expectations! The home is
tastefully decorated and is loaded with amenities. It was
obvious that a lot of care and love went into making sure guests
felt at home and a little spoiled! :-). We fell in love
with it as soon as we walked in. The beds were amazingly
comfortable. It felt warm and inviting. The appliances
were all new and the kitchen was loaded with beautiful dishes and
everything you could possibly need. We cannot wait to go back
helped make our first trip to Whistler perfect and a new family vacation destination going forward."

your home and thank you for it. It was fun
cooking in your kitchen, playing cards in your hot tub and I want to know what kind of mattress you have in the master bedroom, it was very comfortable. I also loved the in-floor heating in the bathroom."
Kathy Musial - Whitehorse, YT
"We had a wonderful visit to Whistler and took good care of your beautiful home. As you know, it's not easy to find a really nice place to stay while vacationing and your place really fit the bill.

Julie Clifford - Westwood, MA
"As usual our stay was wonderful....all of your Montebello

welcoming us to use your home;) Looking forward to being back in Whistler in August!"

"I just wanted to let you know our group had a wonderful time
in Whistler. The house was perfect. Clean, new, and
comfortable, it gave us the perfect beginning and end to our
days mountain biking. The spa was clutch to be able to relax
the muscles after long days of riding the epic trails up

We loved relaxing after the full days outdoors; the hot tub soothed our aches, the grill afforded us some very nice meals, and we found the house so nicely maintained, all appreciated!

to thank you so very much for such an amazing stay. The condo is
absolutely gorgeous and we passed around your contact details to a
few people. Your condo was exactly what we needed for the weekend

lawn. The weekend was absolutely perfect. Thank you again and we
cannot wait for the opportunity to stay there again."

Given the weather, we spent more time just hanging out in the units and catching up. The place was better stocked with some of the staples like sugar and spices, than most any other place we have stayed and was greatly appreciated. Overall we had a great stay.
Our friends have recommended your place to some friends in
Seattle who are looking for a place this winter. We will be sure to
do the same."
Jason Tielker - Vancouver, BC
"Ann, just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Montebello townhouses. They were perfect for our family reunion and anniversary celebration.

We rode the Peak to Peak gondola to Blackcomb which was thrilling, beautiful and fun."
...We never can seem to get together in one place at the same
time. Thanks to you and The Whistler Retreat we did!
Ann Winter - Olympia, WA
"The house was immaculate. The linens were of excellent quality. The beds were comfortable with a wide choice of pillows. Also, Ann provides additional padding if you want to make the bed extra soft. My sister and I love to cook. The Thermador oven and stove were a treat. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. The house is located 1 block from the village which is perfect for enjoying the village but avoiding the noise and crowds. The Zappa bike/hike trails are a block away. Do not miss this beautiful adventure."

"My friends, husband and myself were extremely impressed by the Montebello development. Our unit was beautiful, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed making meals in the modern and convenient kitchen. I would add that the price was extremely good for the quality of accommodations. The location was fantastic and we enjoyed walking to the village and mountain biking right from our doorstep. We even saw two bears right at the intersection of Lorimer and Blackcomb-Yikes! We would highly recommend your services and your accommodations to anyone we know, and would come back again. Your website was also great and extremely user-friendly. Thank you for your great service and the use of a fabulous holiday home!"
Jackie and John Impy - Calgary, Alberta
"Thanks for all your help in reserving the condo in Whistler. Our group had a wonderful time, and the house was gorgeous. My husband and I slept like babies. We particularly enjoyed the proximity to the village, not so close it was too noisy all night, not so far that we couldn't walk to the village or the lake. It was a lovely vacation in a lovely home, and I appreciated your attention to easing the reservation process. Can't wait to go back! Thanks again."
Sandy Rudolph - Issaquah, WA

"Like I said before, we loved the condo and the extra amenities were wonderful: heated floors, double shower head in the bathroom, and the boot/glove dryer was key! I think we all got some good ideas of what we want our future houses/ski condos to be like some day. Thanks for all your help and making our trip so enjoyable and nice! Your directions up there were great as we didn't know the other route to Canada. We also found your tip on calling for a cab to be essential for skiing. Actually, I think we got to know a few of the cab drivers because we decided it was well worth the $5 to call."
Michelle Guthrie - Seattle, WA

We are also appreciative of the fact that you do not allow pets or smoking...We thoroughly enjoyed your home."

Alicia Hopkins - BC
"We have had a wonderful time at Whistler and found the home extremely pleasant to stay in. You see we normally go for hotels. Renting a home is a new adventure for us and it turned out to be extremely worthwhile and far more interesting than hotels. Me and my guests are looking forward to a future holiday some time! We particularly felt that the thoughts and care that has gone into the interior decoration has made the home truly homely."
