Our luxurious room was jaw-dropping with its panoramic views of the valley and love that it came with its own fireplace for those toasty mornings and/or nights. The bathroom was enormous with its own separate shower and bath, which is always great for families to make getting ready easier for dinner. I love that Kaia got a kids amenity that she absolutely loved… a kite and a pair of binoculars for our day adventures in the park. Each room is equipped with an iPad to schedule anything from housekeeping, dinner reservations to in-room dining. My husband really appreciated this hi-tech feature of the room.
Childrensalon, one of our favorite online luxury children’s retailers did a interview with us talking all about our recent Whistler trip. I talk about where to stay, what to do, and what to pack on and off the slopes. Read the interview here.
For resort destinations like this, I love a good resort wear piece for both Kaia and I, and even better if it’s a one-stop shop for mommy! When it comes to shopping, I love online shopping vs. in-store shopping. Shopping with a toddler is never fun for me and I hardly get the time to do it alone. Pink Colony has the largest selection of Lilly Pulitzer in the state of Vermont (Stowe, VT), but they also have an online store, which is amazing. You can find brands like Lilly, Hunter Boots, Jack Rogers, etc. for both women and children.
We stayed at Fairmont Kea Lani on Maui last month and loved our little island getaway. The hotel is gorgeous with an oceanfront location and super kid-friendly. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with the warm, aloha hospitality that Hawaii is known for and each given a lei. The one thing that made the trip so special was the amazing service and staff at Fairmont Kea Lani. When we checked-in, they knew we had a toddler and gave Kaia a little whale stuffed animal. She was beaming from side-to-side! I’d say that was a good start to our vacation…
We are always traveling with our family and people always ask, “How do you do it with a toddler?” To me, it’s something I’ve always done and never wanted to change, because we have a little tot. Whether you’re taking a spontaneous weekend getaway or a trip planned with your family, I have some foolproof packing tips that make traveling stress-free.
Hands down, Whistler Blackcomb is one of the best ski resorts for families. It’s a place that I continuously want to keep coming back to and make family traditions- it was that special! Not only does it have a mix of terrain for all ages, it has a huge apres ski scene, five-star spas and a village to “WOW” anyone.. Here are the best reasons to head to Canada for your next family ski vacation:
