  • Good location, Nice property, Lovely owner

    "This is a nice, very clean, 2BR condo. We are accustomed to sharing a larger house with another family, so to us it felt a bit small -- but it's probably a typical size for a 2BR condo. There are walking paths to Blackcomb base, which we did use; even carrying/wearing all of your equipment, it's not a bad walk, 10-15 minutes mostly on a tree-lined walking path, with a short bit along a street. If you don't want to walk, the free BCTransit bus stops in front of the development's driveway; it runs quite often and can take you to Blackcomb base and the village proper. The free underground parking is secure, and though the spaces are small, we parked our rented Escalade there -- just maneuver carefully. The vestibule has a hanging ski rack and more than enough space to stow all your equipment, even your luggage, while you're there. You can probably fit a bike in there in the summer, too. Check-in was a problem for us, but the property mgmt company finally straightened it out. The owner followed up as rapidly as she could and went out of her way to "make it right". She is a lovely person to speak with; if you have questions before or during your stay, you won't feel like you're being a nuisance by contacting her. Small quibble: A few of the things that we've come to expect in kitchens were absent -- salt/pepper, coffee filters, foil, containers with lids for leftovers... admittedly, that's not a big deal, but it did surprise us. Nice showers, lots of blankets, comfy beds, good pillows. The bunk beds are a little lightweight, the kind built more for younger children, so if you have an older, taller, bigger person in the top bunk, it can sway a bit. That said, our two kids (boy and girl) were very happy that the "kid room" had completely separate beds so that they each had their own areas. The owner provides the special logs that you need to make a fire; the little stove doesn't give off a lot of heat (which is a good thing in a small space) and gives a cozy feel to the room. When we were there (early April), snow had abandoned the bottom third of the mountains. We saw many people who probably paid a ton of money for ski-in, ski-out properties that were surrounded by bare grass. Watching them walk a long way to their properties left us feeling fiscally happy: even though we were walking 10-15 minutes, we knew that we had paid far less than they did and we had just as much convenience to the lifts."

  • Excellent vacation home

    "The condo was clean, spacious and modern. Other amenites that should receive mention include: - in unit washer/dryer (especially handy if you are active - biking, hiking and running for example and you need clean clothers !) - a well layed out kitchen area - access to the pool and hot tub (my son and I used these facilities daily) - an underground parking spot extremely close to the unit which meant moving our personal items in and out of the unit a breeze The unit is very near the grocery market as well as a number of restaurants such as Splitz Grill, The Mexican Corner and Peaked Pies (all great choices) This is my second year staying in this property, and my son has already told me to make plans to come back for a third year !"

  • Excellent Process - Great Unit

    "I have rented this unit twice, both for athletic tournaments in Whistler. It is terrific in that it can sleep 15 people allowing for larger team sizes, or multiple smaller teams. The kitchen is a little small but is well stocked with tools for preparing a variety of meals (ribs, salads, large breakfasts). The dining room area has this quirky square table that has ample seating for 8 to 10 people. The living area has a solid tv and music placement. The wireless is enough for Whatsapp/Email but honestly not strong enough for Youtube or Chromecast. The hottub is excellent and there is enough driveway space for 7 cars (stacked) or 5 cars no movement. There are board games available and a small amount of media if you are bored. Dealing with the owner is easy and simple. Their instructions are straightforward and they have anticipated the majority of issues you will encounter. I would recommend this place, for anyone who wants to have a large group, that needs a base of operations."

Whistler Travel Tips

Just two hours north of Vancouver you'll find Whistler, a top Canadian resort destination that's great for a visit year-round. This spot is situated near Whistler and Blackcomb mountains with a lively base village. In the winter, it's the perfect spot to enjoy hours of skiing, snowboarding and other exciting cold weather activities. When the weather warms up, Whistler offers championship golf courses, plenty of hiking and biking trails, and much more.

All year long you can peruse the variety of shops in Whistler and try the different bars and restaurants for delicious meals and drinks.

Whistler was so named for the furry animals in the area that sound like they're whistling. The area is centered around four main neighborhoods: Whistler Village, Village North, Upper Village and Creekside.

Cold Weather Activities

- Whistler Blackcomb: For some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the area, head to Whistler Blackcomb. This was the official skiing spot for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Whistler and Blackcomb are side-by-side mountains that offer collectively more than 200 marked runs, more than 8,000 acres of terrain, 14 alpine bowls and three glaciers. This spot receives more than 430 inches of snow each year, making it one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Whether you're an avid skier or snowboarder or it will be your first time on a run, you're sure to have a great experience with with so many different trail options.

- Sleigh rides: If you've traveled with your sweetheart or your family, a Blackcomb horse drawn sleigh ride is a must. It's a perfect way to enjoy the winter wonderland as you glide across the snow. Snuggle up under a warm, cozy blanket, sip hot chocolate and listen to the jingle bells as the Percheron draft horses pull you through the snow-covered forest trails.

- Snowshoe trails: Enjoy a winter walk with snowshoes. Whistler offers a variety of trails like Trapper's Trail, Natural Mystic Tour, Winter Wonderland and more where you can explore the natural scenery and keep an eye out for local wildlife. Snowshoeing is a fun activity for people of all ages, and you can rent snowshoes if you don't own a pair.

- Whistler Day Spa: After all the vigorous activities like skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing, your body is bound to feel a little sore. Sooth your aching muscles and allow yourself to relax with a trip to the Whistler Day Spa. Massage therapists will work out painful knots and ease any tension built up in your body. Estheticians will care for your windblown skin with a healing, moisturizing facial. You can even treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure so your feet and hands sparkle.

- Barefoot Bistro: When it's chilly outside, there's nothing more comforting than a warm, delicious home-cooked meal. You'll find just that at Barefoot Bistro, a French bistro-style champagne bar and restaurant. Sip some some Dom Perignon (served by the glass) and dine on exceptional French cuisine. On most weekends, you can enjoy live jazz music.

Warm Weather Activities

- Amsterdam Cafe and Pub: When the weather is warm, you can spend a wonderful evening dining on the charming outdoor patio of the Amsterdam Cafe and Pub. Dine on traditional pub fare like shepherd's pie, burgers, pasta and more as you check out the local scenery.

- Hit the beach: In the summer months, spending time at the beach is a must, and Whistler provides a variety of options where you can soak up the sun and splash around in the water. Lakeside Park is great for families, with a kid's play area, picnic tables and a barbecue. Swim in the warm waters or rent a canoe, boat or windsurf for an adventure. Rainbow Park is another terrific option, with sandy shores, volleyball courts and a large dock floating offshore for swimmers to hang out.

There are a variety of exhibits that anyone, no matter their age, can enjoy. You can also be led by a guide with a Valley of Dreams walking tour or check out the multimedia presentations.
