Valhalla Guestbook

We are always pleased when our guests at Valhalla take the time to add comments in our Guest Book, and share their Whistler experiences with us.  We are thrilled when guests re-book year after year which in itself is testament to how much they enjoy our townhouse.

2012 …

We had a lovely stay here – great skiing and perfect accommodation. The apartment had everything we needed & we really appreciated all the extra touches, very thoughtful. Thank you for all your help.

Anne & Mike, Thank you for the excellent hospitality for our first visit to Whistler! The townhouse was very comfy and clean. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen serves all of our needs. And the parking underground was nice. We will be back to visit again! Thanks for all of your help and happy new year!

Thank you Anne & Mike. We had a wonderful time here; your condo is lovely and very well equipped. We had everything we needed and … more.
— Ella, Bob, Andrew & Andrej. Poles from Ottawa, Canada. 1 – 15 March, 2012

We so enjoyed your clean & well appointed home and appreciate you supplying all the little creature comforts and kitchen niceties that allowed us to enjoy our stay without lots of runs to the store for necessities. The sun finally shone, but we South Carolinians pressed through rain and chills to enjoy bike rides & hikes. That strange orange ball in the sky came out the day before our departure and must have been the inspiration for 3 of our children to, on a whim, go bungee jumping. The less daring balance of our family did a Zip-trek tour. A delicious meal in the Village topped off our stay. Thanks for your phone calls to make sure all was well.

We really appreciated the thoughtfulness that has gone into equipping this ‘holiday home’! It is definitely the little touches that count. Took opportunity to do some different activities: Bear trekking & Zip-trekking, both recommended. Enjoyed our short visit.
— The Young family. Norfolk, UK. 19-23 July, 2011

Dear Anne & Mike, Many thanks for our wonderful visit, all your info, home comforts, etc. have made this part of our holiday really really enjoyable. The weather has been great, the adventure even better and topped off with a bear sighting we couldn’t have asked for any more. You have a fantastic place and we hopefully will be back. Many thanks, with best regards.

Dear Anne & Mike.
Our much anticipated trip to Whistler began so well – we thought we had arrived at a luxury hotel – all at Valhalla was so beautifully prepared for us! We have truly had the trip of a lifetime – hiking white water rafting, canoeing, zip wiring, riding the chairlifts & gondolas and all in such gorgeous surroundings. We had a great trip to Vancouver and returning here felt like coming “home”. And to top it all: at least 4 bear sightings (our British knees are still trembling)! We just know we will be back one day. Love…

2009 …

My family and I had a fantastic week of skiing in February 2009.

Getting to and from the airport was simple. We used a bus from the airport, which dropped us very close to the apartment, probably less than a minute or two away. Not sure how we managed it but we were dropped off outside the apartment. From the first moment everybody was helpful and cheerful.

The apartment was in a great position, with an easy walk, just a few minutes, to the village, with its supermarket and variety of other shops and also to the bus transport for the lifts. Despite being UK half term there were always seats available on the bus, and we did not encounter any queues of any significance in the resort. The resort & Village were really easy to get around.

The accommodation was spacious, clean, comfortable, well maintained and had everything we could have wanted. It was close enough to the village to get involved in the nightlife but far enough away so that we were not disturbed in the evening. There was use of a hot tub close by which we did not get around to using. The tennis club was a short walk away (recommended by Anne & Mike the owners), which did a great breakfast.

Anne & Mike were very helpful more than we could have reasonably expected. They had left a clear information pack a welcome pack as well as some basic supplies. They were also extremely helpful when I had a slight accident on the slopes. It is also worth saying that the attention by the paramedics on the slope and staff at the local hospital was first class.
I have already recommended the resort and the apartment to friends, and I look forward to returning to Whistler at some time in the future.

Apart from staying upright on my skis, I cannot think of anything I would have changed. A great holiday!

Owner’s Response: We hope this wonderful review will be of assistance for others considering our townhouse for their ski/snowboard vacation in Whistler and we thank D.O’C for his comments. Mike and I are extremely proud of our Valhalla property, and with it’s ‘new look’ since completing extensive renovations at the beginning of 2009.  Anne & Mike.

2008 …

Really nice place to stay. Very comfortable and clean. It’s also quiet which is pretty good seeing as how close it is to the village. Everything is in walking distance. The market in right across the street and it’s 5 min stroll to the bars and shops. Whistler rocks and staying at Valhalla will only improve your stay! Choose this place…..you will not regret it! The owners are super helpfull and are quick to answer any questions.
— Tombola.  UK

Owner’s Response: We greatly appreciate the review Tombola has written after visiting our Whistler home, and hope it will be of assistance to our future guests. We strive to provide a property which is scrupulously clean, very comfortable, well equipped (including free Wireless Internet and a 42” HDTV) & located, and as such is respected by the majority of our guests as a true ‘home away from home’. We welcome all guest comments. Mike & Anne. (Owners).

2003 …

Dear Anne & Mike … We are finally home after being away for 2 weeks.  We left in sort of a hurry and didn’t get a chance to write in your guest book so I thought I’d better send you a note.  We had a wonderful week at Whistler in your very lovely and comfortable Valhalla unit.  Thank you for keeping it so well equipped and in such great condition.  It was certainly a home away from home.  Your unit was by far the best that we have stayed at in Valhalla.  I hope we left everything satisfactorily and you will allow us to stay there again.  Hope the next time we will get to meet you both.  Wishing you well.  Aloha.
— Sandy K.  Hawaii.  USA

Owners’ Comments: Sandy and her family have now gone on to stay with us for 8 consecutive years and we have certainly enjoyed getting to know them.
