Wyndham Vacation Rentals has acquired ResortQuest Whistler.
The acquisition marks the company’s first foray into Canada and adds nearly 600 condominium units to its growing portfolio of vacation rental properties.
“We are delighted to enter the market in Canada and to welcome ResortQuest Whistler to the Wyndham Vacation Rentals family,” said Mary Lynn Clark, president, Wyndham Vacation Rentals North America.
“Whistler joins the already impressive list of world-class ski destinations where we offer travellers the comfort and convenience of a vacation rental along with the peace-of-mind that comes with booking your trip with a trusted hospitality company.”
ResortQuest Whistler is the largest vacation rentals manager in the Resort Municipality of Whistler.
The company manages a collection of fully-furnished properties that offer amenities like full kitchens, fireplaces and spacious living areas.
Its accommodations place guests at the centre of the outdoor action from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to mountain biking, hiking and golfing the rest of the year.
Located in the Canadian province of British Columbia about 80 miles north of Vancouver, Whistler is one of North America’s most popular ski resorts.
Set in the Coast Mountains, the resort village community typically attracts more than two million people each year, the majority during the ski and snowboard season.
“We are excited to be joining the larger Wyndham Vacation Rentals family,” said Paul Sanderson on behalf of the selling partners.
“We view this as a very positive opportunity for our homeowners, guests, associates and for Whistler itself.”
The Wyndham Vacation Rentals portfolio includes more than 105,000 rental properties across 33 countries.
