So you’ve decided to purchase a vacation property at Sun Peaks Resort. Fantastic news! You’re about to join an international community nestled in the heart of the Thompson Valley complete with world-class skiing, outdoor adventures and high quality amenities.
But there’s no status quo when it comes to vacation property at Sun Peaks. While almost every property comes with a hot tub — a must for a ski resort — there are many different accommodation styles to suit your needs. Here are just a few things to keep in mind as you select the perfect vacation property for your family.
1. Location. With most properties being ski-in/ski-out, mountain access isn’t an issue, but there are still several areas in Sun Peaks to consider during your property hunt. Do you want to be right in the centre of the action, near shops and restaurants? Then a condo or apartment in the village core may be a great fit for you. Are you looking for more privacy and space? Then a luxury home in the East Village could be a better option.
2. Size and style. From apartments to townhouses and single family homes, the options are endless for your vacation property. Consider how big of a space you’re looking for. How many people will be there at any given time? Do you want to “share a wall” with neighbours or have a little elbow room? Townhouses can be a great option complete with bunk beds and furnishings to accommodate any number of guests.
3. Part-time rental. Do you want to rent out your property to other vacation-goers when you’re not using it? Sun Peaks is home to several property management companies who will maintain your property and rent it out to guests year-round. Not only does this help off-set your costs, but it helps turn your vacation property into a smart investment.
