Big White Condo Rental Photos and Description

WELCOME to our place, Raven 208, located in the center of Happy Valley offering outstanding condo living space, contemporary style and luxury. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom SPACIOUS (1185 sq ft), luxurious condo.

The location of Raven 208 was chosen because of its perfect balance of views, proximity to ski lifts and amenities and the convenience of being SKI-IN/OUT.

It comes with its own PRIVATE DECK and HOT TUB for star gazing and total relaxation after a day of ski and snow activity.

There are even BOOT DRYERS fitted for cosy dry boots every morning!

Family and friends will come together in the spacious living area to enjoy OPEN PLAN LIVING, cooking, dining and relaxing in front of the roaring fire.

You'll be watching the 42” plasma TV, DVD player and stereo whilst lounging in the big, squashy sofas for total ‘feet up’ comfort.

Oversized windows allow you to enjoy the magnificent SNOW TOPPED VIEWS with comfortable geothermal underfloor heating throughout.

There's also FREE WIRELESS INTERNET access for all your needs along with a WIRELESS KEYBOARD on the new slim PS3 - check your emails, surf the net or WATCH ENDLESS MOVIES after a hard day on the slopes.

The kitchen with its granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances probably boasts more equipment than you might have at home for dining and entertaining – should you wish to use it!

KIDS CENTRE

When all you want to do is get up on the mountain, don't worry about your kids. Why not drop them at a place where they'll have the time of their lives, and you can ski or board all day long worry free!

Ski Canada rates this centre as the “Best resort feature for kids in Canada” and the UK’s Daily Telegraph rated it one of the TOP FIVE IN THE WORLD!

There are so many activities for the kids and lots of them are FREE!

When you walk into the Kids Centre you’re likely to ask, “What smells so darned good in here?” Well, that would be the on-site kitchen where their very own chef is hard at work.

The instructors make the whole time such fun with lots of activities and fun along with great coaching on the slopes on a 3 to 1 ratio!

SUMMER FUN

Come along and experience the MOUNTAIN PEACE. It’s beautifully cool with stunning views of the Monashee Mountains.

HIKE or HORSEBACK RIDE on a mountain trail and catch the fragrance of Ponderosa pines and see the many different wildlife species which inhabit the area.

Or CYCLE along the Historic Kettle Valley Railway with views of the Myra Canyon.

Get away from the crowds, but still be in easy reach of Canada’s Fruit Basket and the heart of the west’s wine region – visit the Okanagan's WINE FESTIVALS in July

or hit the fairways with 19 courses to choose from, it’s a must-play destination on every GOLF enthusiast's list!

Vineyards, orchards, semi-desert terrain, rolling hills, and expansive lakes make the golf courses in the area some of the most PICTURESQUE in the country.

Kelowna is perfect for a wide variety of WATER SPORTS - including water-skiing, sail-boarding, scuba-diving and swimming on the magnificent lake.

The FINE SANDY BEACHES offer a great place to spend the day; all have picnic tables, shady trees and plenty of sunshine.

Kelowna’s many quality RESTAURANTS offer a variety of fine dining experiences.

Then it's only a short trip up the hill to relax in cooler climes and sleep with the RESTFUL MOUNTAIN ATMOSPHERE.

About Annelise Nunn

We love it being ski-in/out.

Great kid's centre.

The resort is perfect for family ski-ing and entertainment with a wonderful condo to relax in.

Annelise Nunn purchased this condo in 2007

Why Annelise Nunn chose Big White

We chose The Raven for all the advantages of a purpose built resort.

The whole experience is 'joined-up'!

From the amazingly efficient computer aided equipment hire to get you out there asap, to the extensive and integrated variety of slopes. All of which are clearly marked as groomed or not for complete choice of snow experience.

The kids centre staff couldn't be more friendly and out to make the holiday a great time for children from the ski-ing in small appropriate groups to the craft activities and hot chocolate for a break in-between.

Every session there's a sense of progress as skills are mastered and ticked on each kid's Achievement Card. When completed they move onto the next level, but still within the larger group of friends made!

Leaving you free to enjoy the slopes with the free ski guiding from friendly residents with useful tips on restaurants and places to go.

The lifties are so friendly and everyone's enjoying their time, it's a perfect holiday!

My family laugh, but I love the free tissues so readily available at the bottom of every lift with bins beside, not to mention toilets on the slopes and day lodges with cafes where it's fine to eat your own snacks and enjoy the free water!

Beats any alpine resort we've tried!!

What makes this condo unique

Our place has excellent views, is close to the ski lifts and other amenities along with the convenient ski-in, ski-out access.

It had been spaciously designed with acute attention to detail, luxury and comfort.

With its own private deck and hot tub for star gazing and total relaxation after a day of ski and snow activity - 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!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

There is basically nothing to add to the other reviews. This is a great place to stay. The appartment is well equiped, proper. The tub rocks, with a great view of the mountains. We would come back any time.

Nice place, but not fantastic ski-out

  • 3 of 5

Stayed here with my family for a week in February. The location is ok, but suffers from noise due to the close proximity of other units and their hot tubs (there was a group in the hot tub next door making noise until very late on 2 nights). The ski out is ok, but not suitable for snowboarders as it's flat and narrow in a lot of places. Overall, the unit is well presented with nice finishing touches.

Owner's Response: Dear Nick: I'm so sorry you found the ski-out not so convenient - we're skiers, but haven't had this comment from any of our boarding guests in the past. Also sorry you had problems with noise - this is the first time we've had any problems with guests in adjacents condos in the seven years we've been hosting. So glad you liked the finishing touches - we do aim to provide a welcoming and enjoyable venue. Annelise

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time in this condo. I found they had everything we needed, and they lay-out was fantastic. I certainly see the benefit of bunk beds for kids, but when adults rent it, it is a bit of an inconvenience. We had newlyweds sleeping in bunk beds! The only other issue was getting there from the village. If you aren't driving, it is a hike, but it was totally worth it. Loved the hot tub!

Owner's Response: Brix: So glad you had a great stay. It's always hard for couples in the bunk room - maybe next time the newly weds deserve one of the Queen beds?? Curious to hear you walked up to the village. We loved just scooting down and taking the free gondola straight to the center. Annelise

Wonderfully comfortable and equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely fabulous apartment with great views. A superbly comfortable bed and very well equiped. The hot tub was a god send. Nothing happening on the mountain in summer but it didn't seem to take too long to drive to Kelowna area each day, and the scenery on the journey is stunning. It would be an amazingly vibrant place to stay in the skiing season, and is beautifully relaxing in summer.

Owner's Response: Christine: So glad you loved the place. You're right it is pretty quiet in summer, but they are opening up restaurants and promoting hiking trails to encourage more out of season guests. Should be even better for this summer! Annelise

Average accomadations

  • 3 of 5

This was an average condo. The beds are worn out including the hide-a-bed,and need replacing, the condo heating was hard to control,even with the thermostat off,it was still cooking in the condo,the elevator was very slow working when trying to bring your belongs in/out,no ice machine built in the fridge,only one dish towel to use,but other than that,all in all it was a nice we'll kept place to stay. It had a lot of other nice features.

  • Stayed: Mar 2014
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: Jason: It was a shame one of the sofa beds broke during your stay, but we haven't had any other problems with them. It's a good idea regarding the ice machine which we'll certainly look at when replacing the fridge freezer. As to the lift, I can't say we've received this comment from others - maybe they're more working on 'vacation timing'? I'm so glad you enjoyed the apartment's other features! Annelise
