WONDERFUL FAMILY HOUSE, PRIVATE HOT TUB, CLOSE TO BEACH

Whistler House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Stay in our wonderful home in Pinecrest Estates Whistler!!! Get away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler Village in our peaceful forested development. Our new Private Hot tub waits for you at the end of a day on the mountains. Be close to the new Callahan valley Nordic center which is open for superb cross country skiing and snow shoeing . We have our own private lake/beach and tennis courts and relaxing trails for mountain biking. One of the best hiking areas in Whistler is five minutes away, Black Tusk Mountain.

Our home has a warm ambiance with Pine floors and heated slate flooring in our downstairs bathroom and hallway.

Persian rugs, and antiques add comfort and charm. There are three large bedrooms, each bed has a cozy duvet. The master bedroom is on the main floor. The large loft has table tennis and our den is a great spot to look out over our deck and watch the latest DVD or the birds feeding in one of our several bird feeders. The kitchen is fully-equipped and we have a full-size washer and dryer.

You will have a terrific time!!! Our place is 2200 square feet and a great location for a family or group reunion. We sleep a maximum of eight people due to a local bylaw but will increase to 10 if some of the group are children.

We are close enough to Whistler to enjoy all it has to offer but far enough away to experience that 'getting away from it all feeling.'

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi from the owners of the house, Marg and Neil!! We are a professional couple ( a structural Engineer and a Nurse) with a family who grew up vacationing in our lovely relaxing holiday home. We have a unique setting which is wonderful for families, a lake for swimming, tennis courts and a lovely, peaceful winter atmosphere in our forrested setting.

To explain the one negative comment: this was expressed by someone who we were not able to accomodate due to a need to do some maintenance work at the house/ and our own use.

Hi , from Neil and Marg the owners of this property. Neil is a structural Engineer and Marg is a Nurse. We decided a few years back that we wanted to have recreational property for our growing family, so we carefully looked at various properties in the Whistler area. We decided on Pinecrest for many reasons...the unique setting that provides a peaceful rural atmosphere plus having our own lake, tennis courts, relaxing walking trails and is a short drive to the growing Whistler Resort.

We find our area especially wonderful for families with no worries about traffic, kids can bike around our roads safely and it is just a short stroll down to the beach area of our Lake.

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
My family -- most of whom were visiting BC for the first time - had a wonderful time at the Tennant's house. The setting was perfect: far enough from the village but close enough to visit; the small beach was right outside the door. Inside, the house had all the comforts anyone would ever need. It was great vacation and I hope that we have the chance to stay there again.

Great property for all our needs. We liked the quiet location, with easy driving distance to skiing and area interests. House is comfortable, beautiful, and stocked with supplies for a great vacation.

AWESOME GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here on Ironman weekend;fortunately it's outside the closure zone.We had 8 in our group(parents and adult children) from around BC,and everyone loved the house and location.Waving to people on the train as it slowly passed by was a highlight.Great location for biking and hiking,and shopping in Squamish was easy.We would recommend this place for family get-togethers.

GREAT FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here once before with my family and am returning in a couple weeks. The cabin is in a lovely spot away from the hustle of Whistler but still close enough to go to there for shopping or a meal out. My grandson loved the trails to the lakes, the fishing and watching the occasional train roll by!

BEAUTIFUL OASIS

  • 5 of 5
This was my second opportunity to visit the lovely Pinecrest home. The cabin is set among the woods and has immaculate 360 degree landscaping. During our visit we joked that the deck was an "infinity deck" as there was no railing to obstruct the view. At no time did I feel vulnerable to "fall off" as the deck was only a foot or so. Trains did come by once or twice which if anything was fun to watch. The interior is very clean and well maintained, with ample room for the four of us visiting. A well equipped media room was available however not exactly used as there was so much else to do. We often found ourselves sitting on the deck or sitting inside around the fire relaxing after our day of hiking. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to bring our dog. It is clear the owners take pride in this home. I would recommend this cabin to anyone, specifically for: adventure seekers, families and for those who want a serene getaway.

BE AWARE - THE PICTURES ARE MISLEADING. NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED

  • 1 of 5
The photos and description of this property led us to believe that the property was lake front. Instead of a lake view there was a view of a train track and the train went by several times per day.
This property is basically without yard. A small deck WITHOUT a railing (there is a drop off off of the deck. The photos on the listing show a railing).
We weren't informed that our dog had to be leashed and was not permitted to swim in the lake. There was a separate lake that dogs were allowed. It was a short walk however, one of the members of our group walked with a cane so it wasn't ideal for her.
The lake is NOT "steps to the beach". very misleading.
The BBQ was not clean when we arrived and we ran out of propane on the first night.
The stereo did not work properly and only one of the speakers worked.
We have no complaints about the Hot Tub - It was large and functional.
After the disappointment of seeing the train instead of a lake, our dog not being able to swim with us, and our friend being unable to join us at the dog lake; we called the owners and explained that this property isn't what was shown in the pictures and that because of the disability the property wouldn't be suited for us for the week. We agreed to stay the weekend (3 out of the 7 nights) and asked that they be understanding and refund us for 3 nights. They did not accommodate our request.
It would have saved us a great deal of time and disappointment had they been up front with the property description.
My suggestion to the owners is that you update your property profile and your stereo system.
This property would be ok for winter if staying indoors.
In the summer season, if you want to be on the lake, have a dog, or would have concern about a deck with no railing, this property is not a good choice.

Owner's Response: We sincerely regret the misunderstanding about ‘Lakefront’ and have changed some wording on our website. Although not lakefront, we are one of the closest homes in Pinecrest to the Beach area which is wonderful for families. We update our photos regularly, will be updating the ‘Front of the house’, photo to reflect recent changes to our decks. Be assured our decks meet code standards with a 2 ft elevation difference. We provide all renters a package that details bylaw rules regarding pets, your group had this prior to your arrival. When issues were raised we dealt with them quickly, i.e. the spare propane tank, we have replaced the ipod cable that was malfunctioning. When your group decided to leave early we had a discussion about a ‘fair’ agreement (against our cancellation policy) and gave you a partial refund. We have rented for over 20 years to many happy groups, families with children who love our lake, and many groups with dogs who have really enjoyed Pinecrest, with its 110 acres of forest, please see the rest of our reviews.
