At the heart of ZenAway is a family with deep roots in this vibrant community. Take one father who has been living in Whistler since the 70s when it was still known as “Sin City”, add one mother who loves skiing, hiking, yoga and bike riding and one “Whistler kid in training”, and you have family who is passionate about bringing all that Whistlers has to offer to guests.
My name is Christine Barbacki. I launched ZenAway Whistler in 2019 after having managed my own vacation rental investment since 2017. Originally from Montreal Canada, I have always loved travelling and seeking new experiences. As a fresh McGill Engineering graduate, I packed my bags in 2009 and moved to Whistler for the summer. That summer extended to winter, which turned into another summer and before I knew it, I was hooked. After a brief career in sales, I knew my passion lay in sharing Whistler's beauty and countless outdoor activities with visitors around the globe. Today, I offer through my company, ZenAway Vacation Rentals, unique experiences for local and global guests to Whistler British Columbia.
