A BIT OF WHISTLER UP AT MT WASHINGTON

Courtenay Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Shhh! Mt Washington is one of Vancouver Island's best kept secrets. This family oriented ski hill boasted the 2nd largest snow pack during the 2010 Olympics. Mt Washington is easily accessible driving directly from Victoria, BC , or it is a quick trip over on the ferry from the mainland. During the summer it is a destination for hikers and mountain bikers as they explore the slopes of the mountain or the world renowned Strathcona Park. During the winter it is a magical snowy wonderland.

This beautiful new and modern townhouse offers families a wonderful place to relax. Located perfectly between the cross country lodge and the alpine resort, this drive-in, ski-out townhouse is a treat. Views of Strathcona Park dazzle non skiers and skiers alike. In the winter the home is perfectly set up for families who can quickly escort their children right across the street to the nearest chair lift, and quickly back again for apres ski when the day is done.

In the summer you can dine 'al fresco' on the patio after a day of hiking, fishing or biking and revel in the peace and serenity offered. Ample storage is available in the garage to store all the toys you like to travel with.

This unit is one of two available ( side by side) for rent. Perfect for summer weddings and Christmas celebrations.

Tastefully decorated and 'new' as of 2007. Well equipped, comfortable beds and 12 foot ceilings, this spacious townhouse will provide one of the most wonderful bases for your family vacation. Enjoy!!

We are a fun loving couple who enjoys our time with our children. We love to travel and our vacations are active.

Samantha Stone purchased this townhome in 2009

We were excited to learn that there was a ski hill on Vancouver Island that was affordable to access and to teach our children how to ski. We have since learned that it is one of the nicest family oriented ski hills with a range of skiing from beginner to technical. It also has boasted some of the best snow in the province.

We couldn't believe how beautiful it was in the summer.

Instant access to trails and boardwalk area around Strathcona park in the summer. A beautiful place to be too to access day to Qualicum Beach, Courteney, Comox, Parksville and Campbell River by day but peace by night.

We could not have asked for a better location! This town home has everything a family could need and the location is beautiful! We were lucky to have lots of snow and could even go sledding right next to the condo:) Plus, the skiers in our family were able to make short pit stops for lunch and then just walk back up the hill to the chair lift to ski. The snow was cleared off the roads a few times a day which made it easy to drive. We would highly recommend this town home and hope to stay in it again. The owner was also extremely helpful and answered my emails in a prompt manner. We really could not have asked for a better place and have wonderful memories to last us a lifetime!!

We have just nothing but great things to say ! We used this lovely condo for our daughters wedding, at Raven Lodge we had everything we needed for all ages. We had the gift opening here and it was perfect. Everything was there that we needed. We look forward to a return visit in the winter. Thanks Samantha for always being available for my questions ! I think the pictures can't really describe how fantastic this place is.

Our group loved our stay here! We frequently rent vacation properties and this was one of the better ones. It had probably the best equipped kitchen we have encountered with decent knives, crockpot, large wok, quality cookware and an espresso machine! The beds were comfortable though we did have to dig out of the snow in order to open the window in the master bedroom. The layout was great such that everyone had adequate privacy and there was plenty of space for dining comfortably and relaxing. This is one of the best locations on Mt. Washington as you can drive right in, there's only a short walk out the back door to the lifts, and all the great snowshoeing in the park is just across the road. Highly recommend, we will be back!

This VRBO was awesome! Clean, comfortable with tons of space for us to enjoy! Well equipped for our kids, tobogganing right out the back door! KItchen had all the comforts of home, even an espresso machine to get up and go with! The skiing was awsesome and it ws just a quick hop to the lifts..Beautiful view of snow filled trees and mountains out the window. We had an exceptional time and can't wait to go up again! The pictures don't do it justice!

Notes:
Perfectly set up for families. We have a playpen and high chair for use as well. The drive-in, ski-out feature is helpful for parents wanting to balance and share ski time and child care. Sooo close to the chair lifts you can see them - and the road in front is maintained by BC highways. This is an added bonus if there is a HUGE snow dump.... which IS what we want. Alpine or Nordic - you are close to both sites.
