Interaction

Tod, the manager, is a tourism professional operating Simply Kimberley, a boutique vacation rental company. I live and breathe Kimberley tourism. The Woods on Stemwinder is set up for contactless check-in with keyless entry. The door and garage codes are shared prior to your arrival.

Neighborhood

In the Southeastern corner of British Columbia, a detour off Highway-95 will take you directly to the heart of downtown Kimberley. We have the Canadian Rockies in our front yard and the Purcell Mountains in our backyard, making us the perfect starting point for both vacation memories and adventure-seeking.

In Kimberley, we’ve got all that you’ve come to expect in a classic British Columbia mountain town, with a few twists.

You’ll find 80+ runs and short lift lines at the Kimberley Alpine Resort. It doesn’t get any better than that!

If you dare, head underground to learn about our town’s 125-year mining history. Stock up on your organic snacks and cold-pressed juices at Stoke Market aka “the gas station”.

With over 100 kilometres of trails within town limits plus seven golf courses within a 30 minute drive, we’re pretty sure there’s something for everyone, from the novice to the expert.

Access

We offer a Schlage keyless entry lock. and door codes are shared prior to your arrival. The entrance is ground level but accessed up two steps to the front deck. The street facing garage is the perfect place to store your golf clubs, bikes or skis.

Space

The Woods has a welcoming open-concept design FULL of natural light. The hardwood floors really warm the house.

LIVING SPACES
Framed by cathedral windows, the living room is nothing short of spectacular. Imagine your family cuddled up on one of the leather couches in front of a roaring fire as you sip on a mug of spiced cider, surrounded by your friends and loved ones. The laughter ensues and smiles abound.

After dinner, it’s time to venture downstairs to the TV/game room with a wet bar to take advantage of the 65” Smart TV with Netflix and Telus Optik. WiFi streams at nearly 1000 Mbps (Gig). If you’re more in the mood for a friendly competition the foosball table can provide hours of fun and camaraderie. For serious card players, an eight-person poker table awaits.
Whatever activity you choose, it will be in breathtaking style at The Woods on Stemwinder.

COOKING & DINING
The modern and fully-equipped kitchen features everything you’ll need whether you’re creating full-course meals, easy lunches, or simple snacks. The breakfast bar provides seating for 4.

Bring back the tradition of the family meal at the adjacent dining table for 10. Take advantage of the opportunity to share stories and plan your further adventures.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS & BATHROOMS
With five bedrooms and four baths, there’s no doubt everyone in your party will find their own comfortable space to claim. There is eight individual real beds/sleeping surfaces.

On the main level, the main bedroom has a king bed with a dresser and nightstands. The washroom offers dual vanities, a bathtub and a walk-in shower.

The second level has two carpeted guest rooms, each with a queen bed and one twin day bed. These bedrooms share a hall bath with a tub/shower.

The lower level of the home features two guest rooms, one with a double bed and a twin bunk bed and the second with a queen bed plus a twin day bed. These bedrooms share the lower level bath with a tub and walk-in shower.

OUTDOOR AMENITIES
If you close your eyes, it’s easy to picture the warm, soothing bubbles of the hot tub massaging weary muscles. When you manage to emerge, it’s time to enjoy the downstairs natural gas fire while kicking back with some TV.

We provide off-street parking for up to 4 vehicles including the double-car garage.

Our property backs onto a very private forest full of larch trees and pine.

Transit

Simply Kimberley operates a fleet of four charter vehicles and we're happy to provide airport transfers, dinner shuttles and golf group movements. We've become well-known as Kimberley's finest tour operator specializing in packaging with our company-owned and managed vacation rentals.

Megan (review from Vrbo)
This was the best place to spend the weekend celebrating my birthday. It is absolutely beautiful, the pictures don’t do it justice, I was amazed when I walked in the door. It was above and beyond my expectations.

Susan Z. (review from Vrbo)
Great stay
The house is very nice, it is well stocked and has everything you need. Very short distance from the ski hill. The check-in process was seamless.

Response:
Thank you for your review, Susan. It was a pleasure hosting your group at The Woods.

Kim B. (review from Vrbo)
Perfection
This property was in an amazing location. Short walk to hill, it also was fully stocked with the necessary items that so many Vrbo don’t have(salt pepper coffee filters aluminum foil) etc. we always pack theses things but it was so nice that it was all there just in case. The natural fire was Awsome after a day in the ski hill along with the hot tub. Very spacious with all my kids and grand kid there.
The one, hot tub not heating, was fixed within an hour of phone call. That was our mess up for happening. But regardless it was addressed quickly.
We would definitely rent this space again, and tell our friends about it.

Response:
What a wonderful review, Kim. Thank you:) it always feels so great to the Simply Kimberley team when our systems and efforts go noticed! Love to host your family again in one of our properties and yes, The Woods on Stemwinder by Simply Kimberley is a super special house.

Sylvia (review from Airbnb)
Tod is a great host. We loved the house and neighborhood. We would like to come back next year. If you’re like us and enjoy outdoor activities, Kimberley is a great town and the house is very comfortable for the whole family!

Jane (review from Airbnb)
This home was a great place for our group of 10 to stay for the weekend. The home was spacious, well kept and very comfortable. The back deck is large enough for us all and we enjoyed sitting out there to enjoy the weather.
The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were immaculate.

Response:
Thank you for the thoughtful review, Jane. It was a pleasure to host your group. I'm really glad you enjoyed The Woods on Stemwinder!

Wedding getaway
My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for a wedding weekend. It was well stocked and Tod was so easy to contact with any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Response:
Thank you for your review, Anne and it was wonderful to host your family.

Nicholas (review from Airbnb)
Our group of 8 really enjoyed this home, the location, the amenities and the great service provided by Tod and his team!
Thanks for everything!

Response:
Right on, thank you, Nick! It was a pleasure hosting your crew of 8 gents and great meeting you guys. I really look forward to hosting your group down the line...maybe next year? Or, maybe for a sweet winter ski trip:)? Take care.

John (review from Airbnb)
This is a great place to stay for a family group looking for a mountain getaway, winter or summer. The house itself is modern and well-equipped and everything works well. The large living/dining area and decks are perfect for big gatherings. The surroundings are beautiful and we took advantage of the short walk to Trickle Creek golf course to dine on their patio. Pre-arrival instructions were much appreciated - they were very professionally presented and included clear instructions to find and access the property, as well as information on local attractions and suggestions on what to do.

Response:
What a great review, John! Thank you for the accurate and detailed review. We're going to bump up the bedding to work a little bit better for a group of 8 guys with a couple new beds coming in this season yet. Cya next time!

Karyn R. (review from Vrbo)
Perfect for a large group/family
This rental is perfect for a large group enjoying the mountain or nearby golf. We loved our stay! The house is clean, modern, comfortable and the hosts have thought of everything you could need in terms of appliances and amenities. The kids all enjoyed the hot tub and game room. Some of our group walked to the ski lift/home - it is so close.
We can’t wait to come back!!

Response:
Thank you for the great review, Karyn. It was a pleasure hosting your crew! We'll sure look forward to your return.

Joan (review from Airbnb)
I was so impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. There was an abundance of glassware, cutlery and china. We were a group of 9 so this was greatly appreciated.

Response:
Hi Joan - it was an absolute pleasure hosting your family from Edmonton. Thank you for making the trek down to Kimbo! I look forward to your return.

Chen Eveleite V. (review from Vrbo)
Awesome Cozy Cabin
Such a great place. Very spacious yet cozy and comfortable. It was really special having a real fire in the wood burning fireplace. We really enjoyed the hot tub and games area in the basement. The kids had fun playing hide and sink and running around. It was great for our winter ski vacation, now I want to return sometime in the summer!

Response:
Oh Chen - what a wonderful review and we're so happy your family loved The Woods! We look forward to your return:) tod

Loved our stay at this beautiful home. A few things not quite right on arrival but Tod was super responsive and made everything right in short order. He also gave us great local recommendations and helped us get our lift tickets ! Will definitely book again !

Kourtney (review from Airbnb)
Beautiful home for a big family get together that gives you the space when you need it. Location was close to the ski which was really nice.

Response:
Thank you for your stay, Kourtney and family. We'd love to have you back in the future and I hope you enjoyed your NY's eve bubbles:) I appreciate your feedback as well.

Chris (review from Airbnb)
Awesome awesome home! Very well set up for lots of guests. Spotless. Beautiful! Nicest place I have ever stayed. Short walk to the slopes. Stay here.

Response:
Awe...what a great review, Chris. Thank you for that and it was a pleasure hosting your family crew! Thanks for the kind words on The Woods as well. It sure is an awesome property.

Stephanie (review from Airbnb)
Our family had a wonderful weekend at this house. Bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone, lots of living space, and very clean. These hosts are clearly experienced knowing which little details make the difference: lots of dishes, games and books (including kids books!), and plenty of towels (necessary when there is a hot tub!). The extra sleeping quarters and the “Fort room” was so awesome for the kids. We would love to come back again next year.

Response:
Hi Stephanie - what a great review and thank you for the compliments. This is a new vacation rental and the owners have a little posse of kiddos and have really done a great job with decor and family functionality. It's a pleasure to manage their property and I'm SO glad you turkey fam jam was awesome. We'll welcome you back anytime and please do reach out directly for The Woods on Stemwinder by Simply Kimberley! Have a great fall.

Chris (review from Airbnb)
I can’t say enough good things about this place! I’ll be staying here in the future again!!

Response:
Awesome Chris! I'm super stoked you loved our Kimberley area and The Woods on Stemwinder. We'd love to have you back, working remote again:)!

Bryce (review from Airbnb)
Beautiful, well equipped, close to everything.

Response:
Right on, thanks for staying, Bryce. We'll look forward to next year! Reach out early.

Lauren (review from Airbnb)
The home was lovely, spacious, and clean! We had our two families with three kiddos running around. We made it work with toddlers but would probably be better for older kids as there are lots of beautiful decorations and details with sharp edges. I would go back for sure!

Andrea (review from Airbnb)
Great place - more than enough room for the people we had. The pictures and description fit with what we were expecting/hoping for. Lots of room for a bigger group of people. Very clean and nicely appointed. We would stay again.

Response:
Hi Andrea. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Woods on Stemwinder by Simply Kimberley. I'm always appreciative when our guests confirm that the pictures and descriptions are accurate as it gives other prospective renters first-hand knowledge. It was a pleasure to host your group and we'd love to do it again.

Jamie (review from Airbnb)
Great place and location, would book again!

kelsey f., Toronto (review from Vrbo)
Great house. Great location.
Wow! This place is even nicer than it looks in the pictures. . . and it looks pretty darn nice in the pictures! Our family had a great getaway with our friends and their kids. Lots of space and lots of bedrooms (everyone said they had a comfy sleep) and the kitchen had everything we could have possibly needed.
I loved having my morning coffee in the hot tub - so private with a beautiful view of the trees. . . while the kids had their epic foosball battles inside.
Just across the street is the “Peak to Platzle” walkway and we all loved the walk down for an ice cream. I’m sure it would be a nice walk back after the pub but we hit up one of the local places up on the hill.
Ok, I kinda fell in love with Kimberley on this trip. The bike trails, the scenery, the restaurants. . . we’d love to stay here again and try on golfing or skiing next time. Great house. Great location.

Response:
Thank you for the absolutely wonderful and detailed review, Kelsey. As the newest (and one of the sweetest) vacation rental houses at the base of the ski hill in Kimberley, BC, we’re so appreciative of your booking and review to help get the word out! We’ll look forward to hosting your family down the line.

Barbara (review from Airbnb)
beautiful house! There's so much room so you never feel crowded, everything you need is there, and never have to wait for a bathroom as there is one on every level. Beautifulviews through the big windows and the real fireplace was 👌. you can't ski in but it's a very quick walk to the hill. we would stay here again for sure.

Shanna (review from Airbnb)
Excellent house! Great location, spacious and very clean. Very impressed with how stocked the kitchen was, everything you could need.
Appreciated Tod's quick responses to any questions, and organizing lift tickets for us before we arrived. We would love to stay again!

Response:
Thank you very much, Shanna! It was wonderful to host your crew and I'm very glad your group enjoyed The Woods. I'd love to have your family back in summer:)
