About Annelise Nunn

We're a typical 2 + 2 family. Love the ski-ing, mountain air and lots of activities!

Annelise Nunn purchased this condo in 2007

Why Annelise Nunn chose British Columbia

Big White as a purpose built resort makes the holiday all 'joined-up'!

• Efficient equipment hire

• Extensive & integrated variety of slopes - clearly marked as groomed or not for complete choice of snow experience

• Children have a great time in the Kids' Centre:

o ski-ing in small groups

o craft activities

o hot chocolate & hot lunches for breaks

• Friendly lifties

Beats any alpine resort we've tried hands down!

What makes this condo unique

• Ski-in, ski-out

• Excellent views

• Close to Happy Valley with magic carpets, tubing, skating, ice tower, ski-doing etc. along with the convenient ski-in, ski-out access.

• Spaciously designed & kitted out with acute attention to detail, luxury and comfort

• Private deck & hot tub for star gazing and total relaxation after a day of ski & snow activity or summer fun - What more could you ask for !!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Compared to ski-ing in Europe it was OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Such a friendly place, from the lifties to the ski guides.

Kids Club a combination of top quality childcare and expert ski instruction. Our 6 year old had the time of her life and the instructors were so keen for her to have fun - so sign of them being tired towards the end of the season!

So many free activities in the afternoon/evenings - hot chocolate, carnivals, fireworks etc.

And the tubing was 'to die for' as a laugh for all the family.

Very varied ski-ing and connected well with the lifts, lots of variety for different ability levels - our 13 yr old son could whiz in and out of the trees, jumping and showing off as his parents came down more sedately!

Rarely had to queue for lifts and the slopes were wonderfully quiet, - though when in difficulty someone would always stop to help!

We're just taking over the management this season and looking forward to helping others enjoy the place as much as we do!

Not at all! This place is a dump in the summer.

  • 1 of 5

This place is not suited to be rented in the summer. Unkept property, dried, overgrown grass and shrubs.. Very dusty. We couldn't sleep because of the heat. No AC. Small windows that open upwards prevents ventilation. I'm trying to understand how can be advertised on VRBO as a summer getaway.. We had to look for another place to stay and spent $900.00 more. Ridiculous.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time for the 4 nights we rented this condo! Everything was exactly as advertised. Condo was a wonderful size, there was only the two of us however it definitely has the space available for the maximum capacity listed. Great location, easy to find when we drove in. Annelise was perfect with communication prior to arrival, and we only had to ask one question to the onsite contact (Sheila) regarding parking passes (we wondered at first given the signs in the parkade, but ended up not being required), which was answered right away! Really nice to feel at home right away. The weather had been a bit warm for the ski out so we walked down the path a ways to get to ski out to the gondola, but that was just fine, and definitely a seasonal anomaly. Ski in was incredibly convenient. The hot tub was steaming when we arrived, and we made use of it after each full day of skiing, usually before and after dinner! Serene views from the balcony, made it just perfect for sitting and relaxing in the tub.

We would definitely recommend 208 to friends travelling to Big White, and would likewise book again if available for our next time out!

Spacious unit with great location.

  • 3 of 5

Condo is roomy and has a nice feel with good views and well stocked kitchen. It is "ski in/ski out" with help of the village gondola. The entire complex is "hot tub central" and you get a real mix of families and younger "party" types so be prepared for that, but most in bed early as skiing the focus for everyone. We did have some issues with cleanliness of the unit when we arrived that we were not happy about, but after some discussion with the owner compensation was offered and accepted to my satisfaction. Big White is an amazing place and well-worth visiting!

Very nice unit

  • 4 of 5

Sheila was great at getting back to us with any questions we had and she was quick to solve any problems. We really appreciated having her as our contact - a real plus!

The unit was extremely well outfitted with kitchen requirements - appreciated all the spices etc. Lots of dishes, pots, pans, and extras. Popcorn popper was a positive addition!

The handle for the shower in the second queen bedroom needs to be fixed/replaced. It could spin more than 360 degrees and it was challenging to find where hot was - wasted a lot of water trying to find the sweet spot.

We were very surprised to find the closet in the second queen bedroom locked! When staying in a condo for 11 days, I would assume a closet would be included. The hall closet was so full of fans, the vacuum etc. there was hardly any room to hang anything, so we shoved our coats in it, but there was nowhere to hang clothing. A closet is an expectation when renting a unit of that size and calibre.

Loved having the washer and dryer - 11 days with kids - it was great to have.

Hot tub was terrific and well maintained.

Oh and we couldn't get the window in the second queen bedroom to open for fresh air.

There were a lot of Christmas decorations 'around' the place and nowhere to put them. I think by March Christmas should be cleaned up in the unit - made it seem a bit busy and junky.

Fireplace was lovely - lots of great furniture for relaxing - a great space - Thanks for a terrific stay!!
