Very comfortable, spacious, clean and perfectly located.

We had a great time in the hot tub, playing pool and watching movies in the theatre. The kitchen was great and the beds were very comfortable. We would come back.

Spacious, luxurious and a really comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 Adults and 3 kids. Great hospitality from the owner; the 4 bedrooms were massive to accommodate us all but Martin arranged for an additional bed. The house is beautiful; spacious and well equipped kitchen, has a comfortable home theater with a wide collection of movies, beautiful interiors decorated with rich taste, master bedroom with best in class bathroom, etc. Has really good views from the living room. We arrived late but Rhonda who takes care of the place, was very approachable and available even at 10PM in the night to make sure we had access to the house and with all our questions about the house and the neighborhood.

All in all, we loved our stay and would highly recommend this house for anyone considering visiting Golden.

Great house for the discriminating guest!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house. Quality and attention to details throughout. Great mattresses. Appliances were top of the line as was everything else. The built in coffee machine was a huge hit with the family.

Not really a lot to do in the area this time of year unless you like to hike, bike, fish which is why we were there. We used the house as home base to visit all the parks and typical tourist attractions as well as some less well known ones. Hardly anyone in the area this time of year. Very quiet and peaceful. There was a bike race event the last weekend of our stay which was fun to watch.

Would stay here again if we were in the area. Thanks Martin for providing a high end place to stay.

Spacious, Beautiful and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Our group, 4 couples, rented this property for a weekend of white water rafting and a get away. We really enjoyed the hot tub after the chilly rafting trip. The home is beautiful, well equipped and spacious. With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, we all enjoyed some privacy. At no point did we feel cramped or crowded.

It is only a short walk to the hill where we were able to browse the shops and watch bike races. Although I spoke to the owner on the phone, I didn't get to meet Marty in person. In my dealings with him, I found Marty to be honest, forthright, friendly and easy to deal with. Rhonda, who takes care of the property, was extremely helpful and easy to reach for any issues that we might have. We ate in for 2 meals each day, utilizing the gorgeous, dream kitchen which is open to the dining area. Although late July, the weather was rainy and cool so we made the best of it watching one of the movies from the vast collection and played pool and board games. I have recommended this property to everyone I know who plans to spend some time in the area. We have rented several homes through VRBO and you get what you pay for. This home is worth every penny. I would return in a heartbeat.

Amazing 35th Birthday/ Couples Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first time writing a review! I organized and planned this getaway at Kicking Horse for my boyfriend's 35th birthbday. At first I was a bit skeptical of the whole process, and the return of the deposit, as communication was rather informal with the owner.

Once meeting him, he went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with everything.

I chose this property because it is immaculately kept, with an amazing kitchen for entertaining, and the rooms are all well furnished and comfortable. The amenities and house details are far beyond what I saw in other rentals

, of the same size, and price point. All the bedrooms were furnished equally, except the master. It truly was the most beautiful - with a walk in closet and double shower!

There is surround sound throughout the house, that can be controlled in each room, and an amazing theatre room with all the newest features.

The owner transformed his office into an extra bedroom for the 5th couple - making this stay, accommodate all our closest friends. The owner is very easy to deal with, if you tell him requirements and needs ahead of time but this is a show home. Thus, he is protective and particular about his property.

With that being said, the owner greeted us upon arrival (as he went out early to plow the driveway!) and we met his house keeper, Rhonda, who knew the ins and outs of the property. In no way now, do I feel like he was watching us! At first I was somewhat iffy about how particular he was and if I would be able to relax....but in no way did I feel that way.

In the end. The stay was amazing! My bonfriend was blown away by the rental. Once we left, the deposit was returned within a week (met him in person). He also will return it upon inspection, if he is up at the resort. He is upfront and truly wants people to enjoy his property.

This was the perfect place for 5 professional couples. We will definitely be renting this property again, and next time having a dinner party in the kitchen. It is state of the art!

Definitely worth the money, as it truly is, the most luxurious rental on the Mountain! Ski in and Ski out!!!!

Excellent House, Great Location for Ski in/out

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 adults and 4 kids renting the house during March break. We didn't have any issues dealing with Marty (the owner) although some may find him a bit laid back in how he manages his bookings. No issues for us. He followed through with our agreements and we didn't have any problems with the return of the damage deposit. When we had an issue we were able to get a hold of him but we certainly didn't feel we were being watched while we were there.

Such a comfortable house with all the amenities you could ask for and more. Also the views from this property are probably the best from anywhere in the resort. Little things like letting us use his condiments were great and unexpected when renting a house.

The house was spotless on arrival and Rhonda the cleaner was also available for all our questions and concerns.

We did have one small issue with the hot tub and perhaps the owner should have regular maintenance before renters arrive to make sure all working well.

I would definitely rent this place again and dealing with Marty was a breeze. He's an above board guy!
