Our Whistler Retreat - Owner Feedback
"Ann Forster and OUR WHISTLER RETREAT have been managing our condo for about a year now. After buying a unit in Montebello, connecting with Ann was our second best move.
Ann is VERY detail oriented, and she is laser focused on providing the renters with the finest vacation stay possible. She communicates with us via email and phone on a regular basis and is vey direct in what she thinks we should do to make our unit first rate. When a problem comes up, she also has a solution, as when the floor slate was looking rough. She located a flooring contractor and gave us several options. She manages a number of units in the development all of which are the same age, so she was able to negotiate a volume discount which made all of us happy. She consistently follows up with her network of trades in the Whistler area and is an invaluable resource for furnishings, appliances, and just about anything else the owner needs.
We give OUR WHISTLER RETREAT 6 on a 5 thumb scale."

"Starting as a guest, our experience with Our Whistler Retreat has transitioned into that of an owner. As an owner in Montebello II, I am pleased with the support and insight that Ann has provided over our first year. Our Whistler Retreat has taken the uncertainties and challenges that a new owner might experience and made our foray into rental property ownership a positive one. It's reassuring to know that our investment is in such capable hands. We look forward to a long relationship with Ann and Our Whistler Retreat."

knowledge and experience that will give any potential visitor looking for accommodations an inside view of what to expect.
Ann is cordial, professional, honest and strives to please each
guest as well as all of the
owners she represents when she personally evaluates the perfect unit that matches your needs, because she knows each unit that is available to rent from Our Whistler Retreat. She also knows the whole Whistler Resort community and is more than willing to share her knowledge of activities on the mountain, in the Village, in the Valley not to mention the perfect restaurant review to
match your palate.
As an owner I trust Ann placing renters in my home because she
pays close attention to detail when taking a reservation, making a
match beneficial for both parties. When you work with Our
Whistler Retreat you get personalized service from the owner of the
business you are renting from, not
just someone on the other end of the phone booking accommodations with no knowledge or accountability beyond the initial contact. I recommend Our Whistler Retreat to any owner thinking of renting out their home and any visitor looking for a top notch business to find accommodations in Montebello II Whistler, BC."

"I have rented my two houses to Ann for many years, and have
found her to be highly professional and ethical, paying attention
to the needs of both guests and owners. She is very knowledgeable
about the Whistler rental market in general and the Montebello
development in particular. As an owner and frequent visitor
herself, she has a broader perspective than most. I have never had
a problem getting in touch and when the occasional problem occurs,
she works hard to get it resolved promptly and fairly."
"We own a unit which we rent out in the Montebello II
development in Whistler. Through the course of our ownership, we
have had several companies handle the advertising and renting from
us. By far the best has been Our Whistler Retreat. Ann Forster and
her team have been at this for 11 plus years and is very good at
matching guests with available units. She a good sense of where the
"market" is so both guest and owner get a fair deal with minimal
hassle. In addition to being a great agent, Ann is a trusted
advisor helping her clients navigate a fluid landscape. We
appreciate her and her team's hard work, integrity, and
personalized attention to detail. From advertising, to
communicating we are very appreciative of the relationship we
have with Ann."

us a few years now. She is fantastic at her job: She is
conscientious, warm and personable and yet always highly
professional, and timely. I know she treats every renter and
property owner with the utmost respect. She has a lively
personality and wonderful sense of humor and is a delight to work
with. She communicates promptly with us by email and telephone to
confirm reservations and schedules. She knows Whistler and

I cannot imagine a better rental agent for our home in
Donna & David R. (Quartershare Owner)
"As an owner of a property at a resort village like Whistler, I have had the experience of working with a number of different property managers/renters over the years. Without question, Ann is the most effective at making sure the renters are qualified and will take care of the property. Her communication skills are great, both with respect to property owners and to renters and payments are sent on time and as expected, without any surprises! I appreciate working with her and will continue to do so, so long as I remain an owner."

"I have a unique perspective of Ann since I first experienced
her service as a customer of Our Whistler retreat in the winter of
2008. My experience with Ann in this capacity was from renting one
of the homes in Montebello. I loved Montebello so much that I
decided to buy one and Ann was a great help to me with all the
knowledge she has with Montebello and Whistler. I have been an
owner since March 2008 and have worked with Ann on the owner side
of things since then. Ann is honest, reliable, fair and
always very pleasant to deal with and I would recommend her to
anyone to rent to or from. She has served on our developments
Strata Council ensuring our development always looks it's best for
owners and guests. As a neighbor and friend, she is there
24/7 when I have a question or need anything with regard to
Montebello or Whistler in general."

agent for the entire time I have owned my Montebello home (slightly

five years. Ann is considerate of our need to schedule family use
at Whistler first and then she actively pursues the rental of our
home for the rest of the time. This approach has allowed us to
maximize our investment at Whistler. She is honest and a delight to
work with. Her contacts and knowledge of the market are broad
