About Property Manager/Owner

I'm an IT Project Manager and a father to a 2 and 5 year old. My wife Karen is a teacher at a Spanish Bilingual School. I'm originally from Vancouver Island and Karen is originally from El Salvador, but we reside in Calgary now. I built this home as I have always loved the area and the natural beauties that surround. My son at age 2 (who speaks more Spanish then I do) gave the house the name Casa Rocas because of the large rocks entering the driveway. I have responded to everyone's suggestions small or large and am a very active host ei: Bigger hot tub, fans in bedrooms, instructions for appliance etc. are examples to my responses in efforts to accommodate reasonable suggestions.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Golden

If this is your first experience in the Rockies, Golden is a great area as it is in the heart of a lot of the scenic tourist areas. 1.5h from Banff, 45 min to Lake Louise, 45 min to Radium Hot Springs and 1 hour to Revelstoke. Then Golden itself is a small gem. You don't have to worry about tour bus's flooding the streets.

I have stayed in many cabins/homes in the area and I recommend all of them. They all just accommodate a little differently. Having a young family, I'm naturally going to have things setup to keep my and other families happy ie: Den is a carpeted small room with bins of toys and Children books in bedrooms. I love to cook so I designed the kitchen exactly how I wanted it. I love the heat of a wood burning stove so I had one of the largest/most efficient stoves I could find installed. I love listening to music in the kitchen etc. so I setup a whole home audio system so you can listen to music throughout the house.

Great weekend and a nice property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a ski/snowboard trip. 10 Adults and a 4 night stay. We hit kicking horse mountain for 3 days and had a blast.

Overall we quite enjoyed the location, house, and hot tub. The house was clean and as advertised. The kitchen was great.

For us personally we would probably suggest this house for 3 couples with Children in the future instead of 10 adults. The sleeping accommodations were as advertised but we found that the bunk beds were mostly unused by our group because we had 10 adults consisting of 4 couples and only 2 singles.

Otherwise, this cabin was great and Kyle was very easy to deal with.

Perfect Way to Relax and Enjoy the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable stay at this wonderful property. The open and spacious kitchen was perfect for cooking and the views from the porch are spectacular. We especially liked the outdoor fire pit and how close we were to Golden (approx. 5 minute drive). We would definitely stay here again.

Great cabin with an amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Went to snowboard at kicking which is just a short drive away. Was very impress with the accommodations, the view is spectacular, everything worked as it should, and the owner is easy to deal with. We went as a group of 8, there was plenty of room for us and beds for us all. The view was great to wake up to everyday as well as when sitting in the hot tub after a day of snowboarding on the hill. Most importantly, the owner was very easy to deal with, he responded in a timely manner, was very kind, and only really communicated when I asked him questions allowing us to enjoy our stay. A+ stay with a very nice, respectful, owner.
