My wife and I have 3 children, age 10, 12 & 15. Daily life in Edmonton can be very hectic with work and activities which I'm sure most people appreciate. We visited Kimberley for the first time a couple years ago and it was a little piece of heaven in this busy world. We were so impressed by the relaxed nature of the area we decided to invest in a condo with the intention of having a great 'excuse' to get away more often.
My wife and I really wanted a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Edmonton. We were looking for a place that has the best of 'both worlds' with all the comforts of home along with the peace and beauty of Canada's best mountains. We looked at dozens of resort areas in B.C. and Alberta, then settled on Willow Vistas in Kimberley. Willow Vistas has all the modern comforts and conveniences of home and Kimberley is a great resort community with amenities and activities for all ages. The skiing, golfing, & hiking are second to nowhere on earth. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do.
