  • Family Friendly Resort on

    Windermere: Akiskinook: Condo in a complex
    • 1 BDR
    • 1 BA
    • Sleeps 6
    • #209355
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘A Great Place to Stay.’
    First time that we had rented using Owner Direct. It was a great experience. The owner was very helpful. The rental was everything that we hoped. Enjoyed the beach, the recreation centre, the outdoor deck for late nights and the location of the rental. It would be helpful to have a one page overview of the local sites to see (yes there were pamphlets, some of them were out of date) and what to do with the recycling. Would stay here again.

    says ‘Quiet, nice place.’
    The place was quiet and spacious. We like staying in Akiskinook resort because they have a recreation centre and direct access to the lake. The kitchen was very well supplied with everything you needed. The pans need replacement as their bottom were very scratched from overuse, or improper use. We also liked that they had plenty of towels for the pool, in case you didn't bring yours.

  • Recently Renovated Cottage

    Windermere: Timber Ridge III: Chalet
    • 4 BDR
    • 2 BA
    • Sleeps 8
    • #90498
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Great Stay - Would Recommend to Others!’
    This was a great vacation with our family and friends. The place was large, clean and had lots of character.
    Pros:
    - Lots of rooms and bathrooms
    - Private beach access!
    - Everything in working order
    - Lots of toys/games and distractions for the kids (and the adults)
    - Great views
    - House was fully stocked with everything you'd expect
    - Large, open concept with big dining table
    - Owner was not very accessible to communicate with, but was very friendly
    Cons:
    - No A/C - the house got very warm during the mornings/afternoons (3 fans though to help out)
    - No cable or internet
    - The yard was not useable for the kids
    - Directions said to turn off at Timberview Drive, but is actually Lakeview Drive

    Overall the pros outweighted the cons and we'd definitely recommend it!
    Owner Comments
    Thank you very much for your comments.

    I am happy to announce we have undergone a beautifu, new main floor renovation and we now have cable, WIFI and netflix. The yard in the front has been landscaped with new sod, rock steps and flagstone walkways. The house has been re-insulated and fitted with UV reduction blinds so, it is not nearly as warm as pre-renovation. We still have two standing room oscillating fans to help out. The basement level is always very cool any time of day.

  • Akisikinook Resort

    Windermere: Akiskinook: Townhouse in a complex
    • 3 BDR
    • 2 BA
    • Sleeps 6
    • #224467
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘needs some work’
    We stayed here over September long weekend. Akiskinook is a beautiful, family friendly resort with a great beach, a recreation centre, and close to everything. I would highly recommend the resort. That said, I would not go back to this property unless some upgrades were done. When we entered the condo we were overwhelmed by the musty, stagnant smell. There is white carpet throughout and it is quite dirty. I think it must be original as it looks like it needs a good clean, maybe that would help with the smell. The bedrooms were large which was great and the bathrooms were upgraded. However, the beds were really uncomfortable. The master bedroom mattress was so firm that we had terrible back pain the whole time. I think the mattresses must also be original, nobody slept well.
    The kitchen is dark, minimal daylight, minimal counter space. The dishwasher is on it's last leg I'm sure as it sounded like a jet engine when we ran it. Consequently we couldn't be in the condo when it was running. The kitchen also felt kind of dirty with the original cupboards and old flooring. Lots of pots and pans and dishes but no paper towel or tin foil or salt. Things that are usually in rental places. The condo was nice and cool but it doesn't get much daylight as it is located far back in the resort on a heavily treed ravine. This was a nice feature in some ways because it was quiet and we felt like we were in the forest. It is not close to the beach though so if you have small kids you will probably have to drive (3 min) to the beach.

  • Akiskinook Resort - 4 Br

    Windermere: Akiskinook: Condo
    • 4 BDR
    • 2 BA
    • Sleeps 8
    • #204837
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Pretty Askiskinook location’
    This condo advertisement is slightly misleading. Yes, it is a condo in Akiskinook... but close to the beach, not really. It is a bit of a hike. Amenities are as advertised and the condo is large. This condo faces a hilly park and is a great secluded little spot full of a dozen other like-minded families. So it is good if you have kids, they can play on the park downstairs while you prepare dinner upstairs. A good spot for families.
    My only real problem with this condo was the cleanliness. All of the rooms were reasonably cleaned but the bathrooms. All of the bathrooms were lipstick cleaned. The sinks, showers and toilets were not well cleaned at all. I will not go into detail about the toilets, but the showers and sinks still had hair, shavings, and soap scum all over the place. When I asked the manager about re-cleaning, it was taken seriously and an attempt was made by the original cleaner to deal with the situation. The cleaner, however, was less than professional. He was dismissive and rude and denied the existence of soiled bathrooms until the obvious was pointed out to him. He went so far as to indicate the bodily fluid stain on the toilet was plastic 'bruising' until we took a cloth to it and wiped it off for him ! It was unacceptable. I would demand this condo have its bathrooms more thoroughly cleaned by a more professional individual/company before I rebooked.
    Everything else was fine and the amenities were great !

  • Windermere 1 Bedroom Cabin

    says ‘This cabin was not clean enough’
    I found this cabin dirty, with dust balls under furniture. Also, the bathroom was not really clean when we arrived. The door locked us out and I had to climb in through the kitchen window -- a bit tough for a 67-year-old grandmother.

    says ‘Clean and comfortable, great location’
    We were three adults having a late summer getaway. The condo is well laid out, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the convenience of being on the main floor and being able to go in and out through the patio door. The owner is friendly and helpful. Heron Point is a great location, since you can easily walk to downtown or the beach. We would definitely return to this condo.

    says ‘Fabulous Home’
    We had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautiful home in August and hope to be able to spend more time here in the future. This home had everything we could possibly ask for. The kitchen was the best stocked I have ever seen, could not think of one thing that was missing.......such a pleasure. We had a group of 9 adults and the bedrooms and bathrooms were accommodating, comfortable, and stocked as well! Inside there was plenty of space, with ample chairs and tables to allow for large group dining, as well as a great outdoor deck with plenty of tables and seating as well. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with as well. We will be back! Thank You!

    says ‘Great Vacation Condo - Exceptional Owners’
    We had a great week in this relaxing and comfortable condo. We were thrilled with the unobstructed views of the Purcells. Steps from the gondola, general store activity centre, and hiking trails. We had one issue while we were there (one of the beds was broken), so we emailed the owner to notify her. She called us and had the problem resolved immediately - she had a repair person build new bed pieces within 2 hours of being notified of the problem. As with any vacation property - they can't fix what they are not aware of. She was happy to hear from us and answer any and all of our questions. We are thrilled with this property owner and would highly recommend this condo!

  • A Cozy Warm Studio Condo

    Panorama: Horsethief Lodge: Condo
    • 1 BA
    • Sleeps 4
    • #224444
    1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star 5 star
    says ‘Great Location and a Great Price’
    My family of 4 stayed in this condo. It was great! One slept on the pull out couch which was comfortable, one slept on a blow up mattress we brought and two slept in the murphy bed. My kids are teenagers so they didn't want to share a bed but they could have as the pull out couch was big enough for two. The kitchen was well stocked - more so than I expected (i.e. blender, grater, measuring cups etc.). This came in handy for cooking. There was no air conditioning but we found it comfortable and there was a fan which we put on at night. The kids loved being able to watch Netflix and play on the Wii - and of course, the wireless internet which is included in the rental price - there is a cost for this in some rentals on the mountain. The condo was clean and well cared for. The owners were quick to connect with and great to deal with. The location of the condo was great. It is only a few steps away from the hot tubs. Underground parking was included. I highly recommend this rental. Compared to other rentals on the mountain, the price is WELL under what others are charging. We had a wonderful time. I would rent this condo again.

    We stayed a total of 8 nights and cannot think of a bad thing to say. The space was great, 10x better than a hotel. The view was magnificent no matter which way you looked. Everything you need is so close by, the word convenient doesn't do it justice. The condo itself was clean and tidy, well stocked (we brought supplies and didn't need them!), very spacious considering it is a studio, and the owners were great to deal with - responded to inquiries quickly, and we very helpful. Not a problem with anything. Would absolutely stay again! The Owner Direct approach really worked for us!
