Great House, Very Poor Rental Management by Owner

  • 2 of 5
We are a group of 30-something professionals, mostly couples.

First, the house: This truly is a gorgeous home. High end finishes throughout, well designed and really comfortable. The cinema room was awesome, the kitchen was amazing, the views, the hot tub, pool table, the espresso machine were all great. Really a beautiful home.

Now, on to the owner and property manager (Martin) and the reason for the 2-star review. First, the owner does not want to use Paypal, venmo or any other modern method to transfer funds. After quite a bit of patiently going back and forth, we settled on wiring him the money. However, for the security deposit and remaining balance, the owner wanted us to bring CAD cash, which was tough for us on a holiday week being from the states. After more back and forth, we wired the balance and agreed to put the money in a paypal transaction that we would cancel upon checking out provided there was no damage. However, the owner withdrew the full amount the day we checked in which was not what we agreed to.

On our way to the house, we were asked to pick up toilet paper. When we arrived, the house was still being cleaned and the hot tub was being drained/worked on well into the evening. The hot tub was unusable our first day/night of the stay. The owner finally left the property around 6:30pm.

Then there was the matter of the damage deposit. We had checked out well in advance of the check out time and left the property in great shape. Dishes were in the dishwasher, the trash was taken out and the house/kitchen was given a light clean. From our perspective, we left the house is great shape and there was no reason not to receive a full refund. After our stay, I contacted the owner about the damage deposit and he was completely radio silent days. When he finally responded, he said that the cleaner thought there were 2 additional people staying in the house as he was going to keep $1400 for the extra people. Not only were there not extra people in the house, but it felt like someone was watching the house while we were there. After standing firm that the damage deposit was for damage, a few more days passed and the owner decided he was going to keep $300 USD (with fees) for "rug damage". I have repeatedly asked for some justification on keeping some of security deposit (pictures, receipts), but have not gotten a response.

Unless you know the owner personally, I would consider other properties for your vacation.

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5
We visit this beautiful house every year with our family. It is a great escape from the busy everyday life with outstanding views. For the ones that take part on the ski hill it is the a quick walk across the road and you are on the hill. To relax and unwind after there is a 6-8 person hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains. Spectacular! The kitchen is a chef's dream. Fully functioning for any needs including a latte or espresso for those early mornings. Entertainment is in no short supply with a pool table and theatre room with surround sound. We will continue to visit this house every year as it is exactly what we need. Highly recommend!

Amazing Kicking Horse House

  • 5 of 5
This was the 5th time we have been at this property. We have brought both family and friends over the years. The house never stops amazing us and our guests . We have such a level of comfort and elegance, the pictures do not do justice to the what you get.The views are truly spectacular. The kitchen is large enough for several to work in at the same time and is well equipped for most everything you will need. The sound system, Theater pool table and hot tub were a pleasure to have and use, keeping the kids and adults entertained and relaxed. There are 2 Master bedrooms with amazing bathrooms and huge timber beds, also 2 other bedrooms with queen beds. This has become our little break from Life. When we come up now, we have a list of people who want to join us. There is something special about this house that we have fell in love with and enjoy sharing that with others. We (I) love the coffee machine (bring some beans) to start off each day just looking out over the valley and at the ski hill watching the sun come over the hill. I could not recommend this house more strongly for someone who wants to have a house with space and comfort for all.

Kicking Horse House

  • 5 of 5
This house was in terrific shape and I recommend it for a family of 4 (or up to 8) or two families of four. There are two master bedrooms and two additional bedrooms, where kids will need to share queen beds. The kitchen was awesome and well planned (bring espresso beans as there is no drip coffee maker but a great espresso machine). The kitchen was well stocked and nothing was missing. the bathrooms are great and well maintained. the owner has generally supplied all that you need, including laundry detergent etc. sometimes i have had to buy little things and leave them behind, but here all bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry were well stocked. the beds were comfy and we slept well (the pillows were a bit large for my liking, but opinions differed amongst the family). The house is very spacious and well furnished. The Hot tub is large and has an amazing view. The pool table and the surround sound movie theatre in the basement certainly kept the kids (and the grown ups) busy at night. for ski-in/ski-out, you just have to cross the street. The final and best thing about the house is that every single room had speakers that played your ipod!! i strongly recommend this house.

Absolute Luxury and Comfort!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for more than a week at this incredible resort home. Our family and some friends took full advantage of all this fantastic home has to offer. The pictures simply don't do it justice- there are mountain rooms from every room, incredible sound system, a theater room and a world class kitchen. Everything you need is there, need a latte! Why just go to the espresso bar. Want to chill out for a while? Sit down in the great room and soak up the warmth from the fire, and soak up the views of the Rockies. Skiing- just put on your boots in the heated garage and step outside- you're skiing! Nightlife? Fun times are just steps away at the Winston, and good dining at Corks and Winston. Trust me, this is worth every penny- a true gem at a great resort.

Top Notch All the Way

  • 5 of 5
Rented this incredible house with a couple couples and had a wonderful and memorable time. Location literally couldn't be better with easiest ski-in ski-out access on the street, or in the resort for that matter, and the most spectacular view from the meticulously crafted great room. Perfect kitchen, dining and BBQ for great meals and family or friend time. And 2 full, beautiful master bedrooms and baths. Will absolutely be back.
