About Robert Slavich

We are a family from Southern Alberta who have long dreamed of owning a recreational ski property in the majestic BC Rockies.

Robert Slavich purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Robert Slavich chose British Columbia

We always enjoyed the skiing offered at KHMR, as the snow is world class. Some time ago we attended a wedding at the summit of the mountain (Eagle Eye) and quite simply fell in love with Kicking Horse. We decided then and there this would be the place we'd call our 'Home away from home'. The home will be complete in early December 2014 and we can't wait to begin making memories. We hope others can enjoy in what we have created and can make some memories of their own!

What makes this chalet unique

The home is a collection of ideas we have been gathering for years as part of our dream of owning a mountain home. The home is brand new as of December 2014 and we could not be happier with our decision to build our very own mountain home in beautiful Golden, British Columbia


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Great Weekend Getaway!

We stayed here with 3 other couples and were more than comfortable. The house is spacious and very well decorated. Walking distance to both the ski hill and to the Nordic centre. It had everything we needed and more!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We liked that the cabin had everything. Toys for the kids, pot and pans, crock pot. We found the bottom 2 rooms were a bit chilly. And the fire place glass got really hot, if you have little ones your better off keeping the fire place turned off in case they fall and touch the glass.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the stay. For future stays the thermostat on the main level operates the main level and basement level for heat. We often encourage calls to sort out issues of this kind to ensure the best stay possible!! We are usually available 24 hours a day to help as best we can. Additionally there are two electric heaters in the basement that typically keep things toasty warm!! The home also has several super comfy and soft blankets for those extra cold nights in the mountains. Glad you enjoyed the homes amenities! We try to have everything that a normal home would have and more! We hope to see you in the future.

Everything about the house was good. I look forward to renting it again.

Very good! I was concerned about the walking a distance to the lift but not an issue because I could ski most of the way down to the lift and returning I could ski right to the house. The ping pong table was a lot fun.

Great place to stay in Kicking Horse!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property for a weekend cousins getaway and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The property was as presented on this listing with no surprises. It was well-maintained, clean, spacious and comfortable. The deck is especially nice to sit out on with amazing views of the Rockies! Also, the property has a very convenient built in sound system to which you can hook up your streaming device (phone, computer etc) and play music through the house, on the deck and even when soaking in the hot tub. It made for a great atmosphere! In addition, the kitchen is quite well stocked with everything you might need in terms of cookware and spices.

Prior to arrival, the owner provided us with ample opportunity to ask questions and responded quickly with answers. During our stay we ran into an issue with the ice maker not making ice (or rather as fast as we needed it) and he graciously offered to compensate us for ice that we had to purchase. Aside from that it does take some time to receive your deposit back as the owner relies on the auto-refund option that is set to refund 1 week after departure. I have stayed at other VRBO properties and I would say that this could be improved.

All in all, this is a great place to stay when in the Golden/Kicking Horse area!

5 stars all through

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for a family get together in Aug 2016 and found it to be a great place at an excellent location and owned by a true gentleman and his family. The house is well stocked with a great layout for larger groups to spend some quality time together with the option to retreat to one of the bedrooms for some quiet time :)

We loved the stay and would recommend it without any hesitation.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This property is just as nice as the pictures. It is clean, well maintained and has loads of extra features that made our four nights here very comfortable. The hot tub is clean and beautifully maintained...same for the gas grill. The beds were comfortable, the towels fluffy, and the large laundry room/locker room right by the hot tub very handy. The view of the mountains from the front deck and the back hot tub are lovely.

it was really the "extras" that made this the most pleasurable place we've rented. The kitchen was truly stocked for cooking. We've rented places where there is 1 pan and 1 pot....not Tara Vista! There was even a selection of Tupperware so we could store our leftovers and not waste food. The owners left all their spices, condiments, and things aluminum foil so you don't have to buy a whole bottle of ketchup or salad dressing to use one time. The same with the laundry detergent - so nice not to have to buy a whole container in order to do two loads! The owners have a solid DVD collection and after all our hiking and white water rafting during the day it was lovely to soak in the hot tub, cook dinner, and relax with the Oceans 11 trilogy :)

Rob was very responsive to my emails and phone calls when I was considering the property and signing up to rent the property. We only had one question during our visit and Tara answered the phone and the question quickly.

The only disadvantage of this property was mentioned in a previous review - a high damage deposit ($1,500 CAD) which is due along with the rent at time of booking. The damage deposit credit showed up on our credit card nine days after we checked out.

This property is quite beautiful and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Golden area. Thank you to Rob and Tara for sharing your home with us!
