Overview

Big White Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'The Powder Den' is a luxury condo in 'The Crescent' a 10 unit boutique condo building situated in White Forest Estates, an area of upscale homes ideally situated on the mountain and only 5 minutes to Town Centre. The Happy Valley lighted ski trail is right outside the backdoor and leads directly to town centre and the lifts~true ski-in ski-out!

In our Guests own words (see our reviews) The Powder Den is ideal for romantic get-away, Girl's get-away, Tourist's without a car, 55+, adventure seeker's and families with teens or young children.

Our unit is tastefully decorated with leather furniture, original artwork, vintage ski posters and of course a decorated Christmas Tree. The kitchen is stocked with basic cooking supplies and everything you need for gourmet cooking. The 9' ceilings give an airy feeling and the entry and bathroom floors are heated slate. All counters are granite, Stainless Steel Appliances and Kohler and Grohe fixtures. The private hot tub and private steam shower are a real treat after a hard days skiing and you'll drift off to sleep in the beautiful beds topped with feather beds and down duvets and be ready for the next days activities!

Our Guest's have mentioned how much they appreciate having robes to use especially for the hot tub. This was a must have for us when we were outfitting The Powder Den because our experience was that very few ski rental's supplied them and they are one of the things you don't want to pack because of the bulk.

We have tried to think of everything that would ensure that our guest's have the best ski vacation ever!

About Cheryl Read

My husband is a Realtor and I work as his assistant. We live on the waterfront in East Sooke on Vancouver Island with our Standard Poodle Liza. When ski season is over we love to kayak, hike and garden.

Cheryl Read purchased this condo in 2007

Why Cheryl Read chose Big White

We bought this property because of the true ski-in/ski-out and that it was a small (only 10 units) upscale condo in an area close to town centre yet not right in town centre.

What makes this condo unique

We can walk to town centre for shopping etc. but are not disturbed by the rowdyness of being right in TC. Of course the most important is that we are truly ski-in/ski-out!

Great stay at the Powder Den

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at the Powder Den and again it didn't disappoint. The Den is very well appointed, the hot tub and steam shower are wonderful. Heated ceramic floors are welcome. The ski-in/ski-out is very convenient. I have already booked my extended stay for next year. I would highly recommend this 2 bedroom condo for any family or group desiring 5 star accommodations.

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Powder Den for 16 nts from 1/7/15- 1/23/15. My wife and our 7yo had a fantastic stay in Cheryl and Doug's condo at Big White. The condo was spacious, beautifully furnished, extremely clean. warm and toasty. It is in a perfect, quiet area just down from the village in a totally ski-in ski-out location. Everything is within walking or ski-ing distance. Cheryl was extremely helpful and prompt with any questions or concerns I had. The steam shower and hot tub were to die for after a day's ski-ing! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. The washer and dryer came in very handy too. We loved ski-ing at Big White. My 7yo boy had never skied before or even seen snow before and he went to ski school almost every day and was ski-ing through the trees and down bumps with me during the last few days of our vacation. His progress was amazing thanks to the instructors at the ski school. We would love to come back to Big White again and would definitely stay at the Powder Den again. Thankyou Cheryl and Doug for your wonderful hospitality.

Fantastic Condo!

Once again we had a great stay at this condo. The ski in and out is perfect!! The condo is just a 5 minute walk from the village which is very convenient. The condo itself is beautiful, extremely clean and cozy! The owners are friendly, helpful and welcoming. We have stayed here many times. It feels like our home away from home!!

Powder Den

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Powder Den. The unit is very quiet, clean, well appointed and comfortable. The heated ceramic floors were a real treat. The kitchen was well equipped even had spices along with salt & pepper. The ski-in/ski-out was convenient. The hot tub and steam shower were wonderful. We will definitely be staying there on our next trip to Big White.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The place is exactly as described. Owner called first night to see if we had any questions and make sure all was in order.

Great vacation home and location - truly ski in/out. Main village was only a 5 minute walk.

Couldn't have asked for anything more...we will definitely be looking to book here again when we return.

Wonder Family Ski Vacation in Big White

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Powder Den in Big White. It is a very luxurious condo with everything to meet our needs and more. The owners have thought of everything. The hot tub was a pleasure after a day of skiing. It was hot enough with great jets and very clean. The children also enjoyed playing the Wii. The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the robes when getting out of the hot tub. The location was very convenient to ski in and ski out. We will definitely return.
