What a fabulous fabulous house. We had the most incredible 6 days at a perfect time of year...the last days of winter, turning into Spring.
There was a lot for the kids to do, down by the river, building ice forts and making sled runs. It's in a very beautiful part of the world and it was easy to go exploring along the river, finding pristine waterfalls and great places for snowball fights!
The house offered every comfort we needed...fires every night, great movie selection (not too many for under 10s though), infuriating (but fun) jigsaw puzzles, great kitchen...
Ryan was super responsive to the wi-fi not working when we first arrived, which was great.
Go experience it for yourself.
One small piece of feedback I'll mention, don't expect the wi-fi to do anything other than limp along circa 1997!
I don't know what to say, everyone has said the same thing. It was everything and so much more. I was looking for a relaxing weekend, and I got it here. The description says you don't get cell reception out there, but most of us did. But it's not like we needed it or used it. I would like to come back yearly.
Ryan's place is AMAZING. Most beautiful AirBnB we have stayed in. There is a creek visible and audible from the living room. We hope to come back again.
What an incredible secluded breathtaking spot. The house is a beautiful modern design with light, trees and mountain views at every turn. There is nothing else one needs! The perfect place for our retreat and incredible world class skiing nearby. Thanks for a memorable stay -- we'll be back!
What a place! It really is a show home. And one that we were more than tempted to buy the (available) plans for to go and build somewhere in the UK or US.
The setting is stunning, next to a sky blue stream, and the restaurants in Golden are surprisingly good. I can imagine it being a fabulous place to be based for the Kicking Horse Mountain Ski Resort; we stayed during the late summer as a hub to explore the national parks and drove quite a bit around Banff and Lake Louise and the Icefield Parkway - long drives but you get used to it.
Ryan is a fabulous host and also a great designer with a real feel for contemporary design and global issues! There is no mobile phone (cell) signal in the area, but the property does actually have wifi and internet connectivity if you really feel the need to be connected (which we did). The outdoor bbq and open fire were also a really nice treat.
This is our first time using Airbnb, and the experience was remarkably smooth.
It would be great to go back there with a group.
