About Danielle D'Amour

I live just outside Calgary, Alberta with my daughter Danika. I bought Alpine Village Resort in 2006. Alpine Village Resort was a camp ground with 7 cabins and 21 camping stalls and a house. We developed the property into 18 lots consisting of 4 cabins and 13 RV lots and our House, which are now all privately owned (of course we kept the house). We decided in 2008 to convert our large house into three suites to rent out to the public. It was a fantastic experience for us.

Danielle D'Amour purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Danielle D'Amour chose Columbia-Shuswap C

Swansea Point is a beautiful location; far from the noise of the Highway, secluded in its own little world. Yet we are only minutes away from Sicamous to get all the necessities. There are lots of mature trees, mountain and lake views. Plus the location to the lake/beach and boat launch is ideal. I fell in love right away. Once I am able to retire, my family will move here from Calgary.

What makes this apartment unique

We have the best beds! Guests comments have stated that they want to take our beds home with them. We have top quality mattress' and memory foam pillows. You will sleep better than at home!

A suite guide has been prepared describing all the activities in the area, maps, and other info to get the best out of your trip.

We are extremely close to the boat launch and we have a large parking spot for a boat trailer.

There are many quad and sled trails in the near vicinity. A 40 minute drive to one of the best ski hills in Revelstoke and 40 minutes to the ski hill in Vernon.

We offer paddle board rentals to our guests.

Group rates for multi suite rentals.

Customized Yoga Retreats for larger groups.

Golf Packages available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your condo. We had a great time and the condo was everything we needed and more. The crib was great for our baby and the beds are super soft.

Good for the price

  • 3 of 5

It is a nice place if you plan for outdoor activities. It has hot top to relax after outdoor activities. However it's living area is small and not suitable for 6 people. The property is slightly old and we found seed bugs in the master bedroom, even in the bed. We were 4 and used the other bedroom.

Cozy place.

  • 4 of 5

Nice cozy 3 bedroom. Very comfortable beds and a nice jacuzzi tub. We really enjoyed our stay. Only two things, there isn't enough lighting in the kitchen for us old people to see well and it would be nice for all the TVs to be connected to regular programing, not just in the kitchen. Otherwise everything great as we were able to connect to the Wifi very easily and it was fast. We'll be back for sure with our head lamps next time haha! It really wasn't that big a deal:)

Small but lovely

  • 4 of 5

Top floor suite in a quiet location near Mara lake. The 3 bedrooms are lovely. The living room and kitchen are small so if the weather is bad and you are stuck inside there isn't a lot of room for playing. For those who love to cook be aware there is no oven only a stove top.

Wonderful Trip

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the 3 bedroom suite upstairs and we loved how it came fully loaded with plates, bowls, utensils, because there is always something you forget while on vacation. The beds and pillows were also very very comfortable. We had a a nice quite visit, although wishing we had made it down just a few weeks earlier to catch the sunny skies and warmer water, but overall, a great experience.
