Ellen & I (Travis) the proud owner's of Trapper's Bungalow. We are both young professionals. Ellen is Brazilian & I am Canadian and was raised in Christina Lake. We love to travel, relax and enjoy great quality services. Mountain biking & water sports are among our favorite things to do. We met in Brazil and consider ourselves to be very fortunate as globalization has treated us well.
The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2008
Initially we chose to buy the house because I grew up beside it. My parents are still living next door. The house was built by the former owner, a very skilled craftsman whom we know very well. The location is great and the neighbours are very sweet. We always look forward to spending time there and will retire there at some point.

Thank you from the bottom of our hears for your amazing hospitality.
We truly felt like we were visiting our family.
Sandy and Rod has created a home away from home for vacationing. Their bungalow looks exactly as on the pictures, but that was just the beginning of our surprise. The fridge and the kitchen cupboards had enough food for us to make through the first day without hunting down a grocery store. The bathroom was supplied with EVERYTHING you would need for your stay. The personalized gift for our friends' Austrian grandmother and their 11 year old boy was beyond wow. From being speechless to tears of happiness would describe the first moments. We really enjoyed their back yard, the barbecue was utilized every day and we enjoyed the great variety of games, toys (indoor, outdoor).
The lake was walking distance from the bungalow. It was warm, clean and not too busy. Our one week vacation with our best friends was one of the most pleasant vacations. We will come back and we are recommending it to all our friends to visit. Sandy and Rod thank you soon much for your exceptional hospitality. It was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for sharing your property with us. Both families are very thankful.
We are on our final day of a 9 day (8 night) vacation at Trapper's. The bungalow exceeded our expectations... The house was as pictured, was clean, great location (close to beach), had new beds, & had beautiful yards with multiple seating areas. The hosts, Sandy and Rod (also neighbors) added many personal touches, including personalized emails, welcome treats for adults and kids, and suggestions for community adventures/ activities that fit perfectly for our family. Thanks to Sandy & Rod, we were welcomed to the community & felt 'at home' from the start. The lake was warm & was fantastic for boating & swimming. We are eager to share our experience with others & look forward to returning!
We have stayed at many VRBO properties for our holidays, and this one did not disappoint. Sandy and Rod go above and beyond to make your stay a fantastic one. The condo was well stocked when we arrived and we were touched by the welcome basket and basics supplied to get us going in the fridge (which included freezies for our two boys!) We had great time sitting by the firepit in the back, enjoying the beach and biking sections of the trans-canada trail with our boys. The place was SUPER clean and has everything you could possibly need - you will not be disappointed with your stay!
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. The description and pictures of the bungalow accurately portray the location, but don't let you know just how homey and comfortable it is. The property was clean, orderly, and well-stocked with more than what we expected. The owners were welcoming, helpful, considerate, available, but not intrusive. We felt that we had lots of privacy and really appreciated the quiet setting with little traffic and wildlife right outside the window. It is in an excellent location with a short walk to the beach (which was also not as busy as we had expected). We would love to rent this property again and would recommend it to any of our friends or relatives. The playgrounds, tennis courts, and beach are really close, and it doesn't take long to get to the marina, hiking trails or other nearby attractions. We really enjoyed the enclosed yard at the back and the wrap-around covered deck. The kids could safely play outside without us worrying about their safety or location. The owners welcomed us all so genuinely and generously supplied gifts for us and each of the children. We were overwhelmed with their kindness. You won't go wrong renting this place from these people.
Clean, nice, comfortable home with lots of shade in yard and covered decks. Bunkhouse handy for 2nd family. Sandy and Rod were very, very kind and left things to make our stay amazing- staple groceries, gifts for each child, extra toothbrushes and Chapstick - the list could go on and on. These things were in addition to the more than well-stocked kitchen (birthday candles! (which we used), bathroom (towels, beach towels, bath oil beads which our girls had an affinity for!) and yard (lawn toys, wagon). The list could go on and on - needless to say, we hope to be back!
Very nice cabin! Extremely clean and well stocked!!! Very close to beautiful Christina Lake. Rod and Sandy were very, very welcoming and sweet!!!! We were treated more like longtime friends then guests. :)
