YOU'LL LOVE OUR SKI-IN/OUT, HOT TUB WITH VIEWS, BOOT DRYERS, POOL & GYM!

Big White Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible sofa bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Welcome to our place, Raven 208, located in the centre of Happy Valley offering outstanding condo living space, contemporary style and luxury.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom spacious, 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, ski-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!

There’s also a personalised grocery selection service available along with ready made meal deliveries for those who want to take the strain out of catering.

Raven 208 comes with free access to The Raven’s private indoor swimming pool and fitness gym. It also has free access to heated secure underground parking and heated ski lockers.

The beautiful and spacious master bedroom with queen sized bed has an en-suite with underfloor heating on cosy cork flooring and walk-in steam shower.

The guest room also has a queen sized bed and private access to the common bathroom with bath tub for a long hot bubbly soak and over bath shower. Both bathrooms come complete with fluffy towels, complimentary soap and tissues.

Our home in The Raven sits in the centre of Happy Valley with magnificent views toward the Monashee Mountains, ideally placed for the weekly firework display. Savour the views with a glass of fizz from your private deck and steaming hot tub.

Enjoy Big White accommodation at its best!

And it 's only three minutes walk to the adventure area beside the Happy Valley Day Lodge with the skating rink, tubing, ice climbing, beginner ski area, snow mobiling, horse sleighs and dog sledding. Just so much to do!

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 Mail 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

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!

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

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!!

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 !!

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.

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

Very Nice Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
The owner is so friendly it makes me feel like I was communicating with a friend rather than just a landlord. The unit is beautifully decorated and well equipped, you can find anything you need just as you are at home. By the end of a tired ski day, you can rest in the private hot tub with a fantastic mountain view. A couple suggestion: A. a written direction of ski in/out; B. some thinner blankets since the unit is quite warm. Overall, we enjoyed the stay very much. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Theresa: Thank you for your encouraging comments. The idea of more details for the ski-in/out is a good idea and we'll certainly do some for next season. Perhaps I'll get the heating turned down slightly or maybe opening some windows might help? It's great to 'connect with guests' even if mainly by emails!! Annelise

Just got home from our family vacation and I wish we could go back already! There was plenty of space for all of us - 4 adults & 5 kids! We especially loved having the hot tub! This was our first time at Big White and it was fantastic. We definitely hope to come back again!
Thank you!

The property was nicely appointed and the kitchen was very well equipped.Enough dishes and glassware so didn't have to put the dishwasher on after every meal. It felt like a home away from home. Bit of a walk down to Happy Valley so we were glad that we had brought a sled so that the kids could be towed rather than being carried as they tired easily when walking. Skiing back to unit was easy and convenient.

Good to hear the ski-in worked well, especially with the littlies. Looking forward to hosting you for your next 'ski-ation'!!!

Ladies weekend

Thank you Annalise for having us. The condo was the perfect getaway. Comfortable beds, very clean, hot tub, beautiful kitchen and what a view. There were seven of us and we had plenty of room. I really appreciated the simplicity of the booking and payment process. Sheila's confirmation call on Thursday with door codes and parking info made our arrival seamless. Thank you again!

Family Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
We were travelling with family and children ages 11 to 16 - 9 of us altogether. We all enjoyed our stay. The unit was beautiful, spacious, modern and very clean. It is very quiet in Big White during the summer, so there was really nothing to do at the resort, except take in the magnificent views and fresh mountain air.
The kids were disappointed that the pool was closed for maintenance; but enjoyed the hot tub that was on the deck.
The owners were also very helpful in answering our questions and addressing any of our concerns.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would return.

It's great to hear you all had such a lovely time. Our place certainly lends itself to large family groups being so spacious and Sheila is always wonderful at preparing the place for our guests. As you say, the mountain is very peaceful out of the ski season and that's why sadly it's not worth keeping the swimming pool open. However, I'm glad you enjoyed the hot tub - other friends have commented on how good it is for star gazing!
We certainly aim to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible, thank you for your appreciative review.
We're looking forward to hosting you again!
