Family trip to Mont Tremblant during Xmas week. We stayed at a 2 bedroom-2 bath privately owned condo in the Etoile Du Matin complex. It was not managed by Elysium or Sunstar. Conversed directly with owner who was very nice and returned my emails very quickly. He offered us a fantastic deal to rent out his place and gave us owner discounts for the lift tickets. For Xmas week, we had a bargain of a price. We arrived at the complex and were met by his colleague. He led us to the complex's indoor garage (very, very nice), and then took us to the condo. It was extremely luxurious, nice comfortable furniture, large open layout, modern kitchen, heated flooring, fireplace, immaculate bathrooms, and comfortable bedrooms, plus a large area to pack/stow ski gear. The only minor downside we found was that the condo did not have a DVD player for my young kids to watch any movies. The condo is located at the Versant Soleil side of the mountain, so it is away from the main village. We preferred the quietness of the area, as compared to the hustle and bustle of the village, plus since we went during Xmas week, the gondola to the village was online every day and night (I guess when it is not active, one needs to take a bus or drive your own car to the village). The condo also had a nice hot tub that was a great apres-ski activity and it was walking distance to the casino. Lastly, there is a chairlift right outside the condo that goes to the top of the mountain. During Xmas week, the main village's chairlifts were 20 minute waits, but this chairlift had maybe a 3 minute wait (if at all). We had a wonderful ski vacation.

Another slight inconvenience was how to transfer money to the owner. US-Canada bank transfers takes several weeks for checks to be cleared (for some reason). Owner uses HSBC, so if you have an HSBC account, then I would imagine it will be easy to transfer, but in our case, I mailed a check, he got it in 2 days, but it took over 3 weeks for him to actually receive the money into his account.
