Great location, but beware of the noise
This unit is in a great location. 12 min walk to the gondola, 2 min walk to Cow ice cream which my daughter loved and a 5 min walk to the grocery store. The unit was adequately supplied and spacious enough for the four of us. But the one thing that was a problem was the noise outside the unit at night. Whistler does have a noise ordinance from 10pm to 8am, but there is a bar across the unit that can get loud at night with music and patrons sitting outside. There is also a Gabbana that seems to be a magnet for people to hang out in and the noise can echo off the buildings. For some this would not be a big deal, but for other's it can be. We were woken up just about every night at different times of the night. The unit is in a great location and suit our needs, but we might think about staying in a unit that does sit over the Main Street of the village.
Nice Unit for Four With Some Consideration
This corner unit on the top floor (3rd) of Deer Lodge and is 9 min (no snow) 12 min (snow) walk from the main lifts in the Whistler village. The room was true to the pictures shown in the listing. You could sleep more but only if they are kids (two per bunk bed) or 1 more (Short) adult willing to sleep on the couch. The unit was clean and had all the basic amenities. If you are going to use the washer and dryer be sure to only purchase "HE" detergent. There is warning label that non-HE soap will result in damages. There is a $125(CAD) cleaning fee that is applied to the final bill.
So why Four stars in lieu of 5. Well I would give it 4.5 stars but a half star is not an option. As some mentioned they experience some loud noise in the afternoons from the bar & grill across the way. If you sleep like a log or you are younger and going out and won't be back to the room by 9:30-10pm no worries. If you are in the room earlier, then yes you could have some noise issues. There is a noise ordinance that starts at 10pm, but that is only for music. Given we were visiting in March most the noise was un-noticeable by 10:30pm. There were two bar fights that broke out in the street during our stay around midnight, but we found that entertaining as the police and fire station are just on the other side of the Unit.
Overall would we stay here again, yes! Is the noise from across the street that big of a deal? To me no, but to my wife who wakes up from a ninja's footsteps, yes. Cheers and enjoy Whistler!
Nice place to stay in Whistler
Overall my friends and I really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment is very nice and specious! The appliances and furniture are very up-to-date. The only issue we encountered is that it's relatively close to a nightclub called Garfinkel's, and people stand outside past midnight and make quite a bit of noise. We used earplugs and the fans, and the combination of the two helped us drown out the noise. Thank goodness for the fans that they provide. The facility is very nice, and we would stay here again.
the apartment has a great location, 5-10 minute walk to the lifts and centrally located in whistler village. the apartment is cozy and was great for my family (2 adults 3 children). i recommend it!
