About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-9)

A true ski in / ski out experience! Just off Serwas run and minutes away from the village. This 4 bedroom 3 bathroom chalet in Snowy Pine Estates boasts 25 foot high vaulted ceilings and windows floor to ceiling. The massive views of the valley can be seen from the kitchen table, hot tub, living room and master bedroom.

We cater 3 day Min Stay Vacations and only request a 5 day stay during new year.

Imagine yourself sipping coffee by the gas fireplace as the sun comes up over the mountain tops and getting ready to gear up and hit the slopes. After your day on the slopes or relaxing in the chalet there is a full kitchen where you and your loved ones and friends can enjoy an amazing dinner, BBQ, drinks and laughs. Brand new 51' flatscreen, Blu-ray Player, Apple TV, Xbox and stereo system. Guests have told me they enjoy watching the Saturday night fireworks from the hot tub while enjoying a glass of wine!

We’ve got free wifi, gas fireplace, sparkling clean hot tub serviced daily, lots of parking, only 10 steps and 5 stairs to the front door, wine glasses and cookie sheets.

Just outside the front door there are also greats spots for kids to go sledding, snowshoeing and a snow machine trail from Happy Valley.

All linen and bath towels are cleaned and ready for your Five STAR stay at The Natural High.

We would be delighted to have you as guests this season. The good news is, at Big White, the snow is great every season!

comfortable for our group of 8.

  • 4 of 5

We found the property to be pretty much as advertised and comfortable for 8 people. The hot tub and wifi worked and the unit was well supplied with all the essentials. However when we arrived the unit had not been cleaned after the previous renters. Beds unmade, linens unwashed, and floors needing to be vacuumed. To his credit Jo responded immediately to my message. In a matter of seconds. He apologized and said he would follow up with the cleaners. In the meantime, Jo provided a cash reimbursement and comped us some lift tickets. A satisfactory response in my opinion. The skiing was excellent and like I said we were comfortable in this property so this little issue didn’t really affect our overall stay. Jo was very responsive and accommodating and I would recommend this property.

Spacious retreat for two families of 4!

  • 5 of 5

Our families had a great, relaxing stay at Jo’s slice of heaven. Lots of room to relax after long days of skiing, with well appointed kitchen and cozy fireplace to take away the chills after snowy days in the hill. Jo was a great host, reaching out by text and phone before we checked in to make sure we were all set to arrive. There was a power outage on the hill and Jo was super responsive to queries when the hot tub wasn’t working later in the day - the circuit breaker tripped and he guided us to the sub-panel to get the soothing water circulating again. Like other guest comments, ski in and out was easy once we figured it out... only recommendation would be for Jo to make a map with clear instructions on the in and out locations and include that in the arrival document he sends to guests.

Wonderful cabin and great host

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Jo’s cabin for five nights over spring break with another family. We had such a great time! There was more than enough room for all of us. The cabin was well stocked and had everything we needed! We took advantage of the free shuttle which came every half an hour to take us to the village or we enjoyed the walk on a lit path. We snowboarded for four day and the cabin was easy to access off Serwas, dropping us off across the street. We would have been able to snowboard to the front door had there been snow on the road! For ski out, we just had to walk a small distance on the road before we hit a trail. Jo is a hospitable and caring host and we would definetely stay here again.

Great House, Great Location, Horrible Owner.

  • 1 of 5

Let me begin by saying we had a wonderful time there. The place had everything we needed. It also came with expired tonic water. We skied, we ate, we drank, and we sat in the hot tub, contemplating about life and all its mysteries. 3 out of 5 friends drank a little too much and couldn't quite hold it in, so 2 of them puked in the sink, and 1 almost made it to the bathroom. A bit of the carpet and bathroom cabinets was stained. We tried our best to clean it but couldn't. Now, let me make this very clear: we did not party like a frat house. Out of the 3 nights there, we only drank alcohol on the last night. The owner will have you believe something else.

We followed the instructions for check out: cleaned the house, washed all the dishes and placed them back in the cupboards, and washed all the used towels. We waited for the washing machine to finish before putting towels in the dryer. We locked the door and bid this place farewell. And now come the fun parts:

Apparently we were breaking the washing machine by putting in 30 towels. First, there wasn't 30 towels, there were about 15 max. We know this because there were 10 of us, and we all used 1 towel. 3 of us had their own towels and some were used as floor towels. Second, the machine didn't break. We watched the machine finish its cycle, heard the lovely chime it made and placed all the towels in the dryer.

Next is the hot tub. The owner claims the hot tub was "gross" and needed to be flipped. I showed the picture of the tub to 3 different hot tub cleaning companies and every one of them said it's normal to have a bit of cloudiness at the end of each use. In fact, we should have added in some chlorine/bromine/clarity chemicals to keep it healthy and clean. No instructions/cleaning materials were provided.

Then came the TV. The owner claims we unplugged the TV and all the cables in the back and the cleaners had to spend 1 hour to hook it all up. We didn't touch the TV, or any of its cables.

Finally, we come to the stains left by our friends. The cleaners couldn't remove it so COIT was called. We understood this and was more than happy to use some of the security deposit for the cleaning. However, we did not agree to the extra charge to re-hook cables and to pay for the owners normal hot tub maintenance. Total damage was ~$380.

It is up to you to decide whether to rent this place. We will never again rent from this owner. Maybe you'll be lucky and not get chosen for sacrifice. Maybe.

Owner's Response: Well Unfortunately this group was a bad group and left a nice message in our Comment book on how they got drunk and two people puked at the same time ALL OVER THE CABIN AND all over the basement . They actually wrote this in the quest book. and admitted IT . Along with the place being a disaster and breaking a table and the vacuum we have asked this quest to not come back. I gave the quest his chance to get his full damage deposit back on the condition me and 8 friends could come and party in his house like they did to mine ..... and I assured him one of my friends would puke in his place and if it was ok for me and my friends to act like that in his home i would give back his damage deposit ,,, The Quest response was no I do not want you to party in my house.... as for the towels please let me know if you put over 30 towles in your machine at one time... I am pretty sure the answer is no.... and for the tub the water it was green and smelled like puke plus there are no chemicals too add as we have the tub guy go by everyday tub service when groups are there.. WE WILL NOT ENTERTAIN YOUNG GROUPS ANYMORE FAMILIES ONLY PLEASE!! . WE ARE NOT A PARTY HOUSE THIS IS MY HOME AND MY PARADISE SO BILLY CHAN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE NO LONGER WELCOME ps this quest waited till my rate response time was over to post this so QUEST WHO MADE A MESS you are a 1 star too.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We were at Big White for a family ski weekend. The condo suited our needs quite nicely. It is well located for ski in/ski out, has a private hot tub and comfortably sleeps 9. Jo was good at responding to questions and checking in to see if everything was okay. Overall a great weekend get away.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment and please note the SKI run drops you off right across the street from the Cabin when you come home.. PLEASE LOOK FOR SNOW PINES SKI OUT SIGN AND YOU WILL LITERALLY BE DROOPED OFF ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE CABIN AND IF YOU HAD ENOUGH SPEED YOU COULD RIDE RIGHT DOWN THE FRONT STEPS....
