Overview

Whistler House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Relax in your very private hot tub, sunk into a 900 square foot wrap-around deck, surrounded by trees, and overlooking a beautiful swimming lake accessed from a dock by the property.

This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations. Many windows and two sets of French doors opening onto the large wrap-around deck make this fully-equipped home light and bright in all seasons.

Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck and enjoying the view of the lake. Cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door.

The lake is regularly frozen in the winter and ice skating is possible. In the summer the lake is exceptionally warm and is perfect for swimming with access from the dock situated on the property. Walk or take your boat over to the two beaches on the lake. Snow and water toys are available for your use or you can use the private tennis courts.

Located in a private, gated estate 15 minutes south of the Whistler Creek Gondola, with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available in Whistler. From this rural, relaxing oasis you can enjoy everything that Whistler has to offer.

About Richard Hunter

Chartered accountant, originally from the UK,living in Vancouver since 1980. Currently CFO of a B.C. crown corporation. My wife Therese is a hairstylist and we have 3 grown boys, who do not seem to want to leave home.

Richard Hunter purchased this house in 1992

Why Richard Hunter chose Whistler

We searched throughout southern B.C. for a vacation home and were extremely lucky to find Pinecrest Estates. There are only 75 homes in the estate and the ones on the lake never change hands. It has the perfect year-round appeal. It truly is a slice of Canadiana for a Brit like me. Snow, skate and ski. Mountains, canoeing, swimming and forest. Away from all of the shops and crowds in Whistler, but close enough if you need it. Plus the logs ... so cozy.

Such a comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in this home. We booked very close to our trip and Richard was very easy to communicate and plan with. We were three couples and three children and the home was very comfortable for our group. We enjoyed the wood stove (as the power was out for some of our stay and it kept the living room and kitchen nice and warm), the well equipped kitchen and hot tub! We also were pleasantly surprised to find some children's toys and to have such comfortable beds. We would stay here again and would also recommend this home for families. It is evident that this is a vacation get away used by the owners and not just a rental as it is better equipped than most homes. Thanks for a lovely stay Richard.

FANTASTIC - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 adults and 3 kids) were travelling around America /Canada all the way from Australia. We were winging it as we went so when we decided to head up to Whistler, we google searched accommodation and stumbled across this little beauty. Richard was so pleasant and o helpful from the minute we contacted him. The home itself supplied everything we needed. It was a fantastic place to chill out and relax after a hectic 4 weeks of travelling but also close enough to head out for the day to check out Whistler. Kids loved swimming and canoeing on the lake also. Would highly recommend and would love to go back and spend some time there in the snow season.

Quiet & Rustic

  • 4 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending a very enjoyable, and relaxed weekend in June at this cabin. We had fun walking around (and swimming in... brrr) the lake, playing board games and soaking in the hot tub at night under the starry skies. We have 3 older children and celebrated my son's birthday as part of the festivities. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the hub bub of the city (and Whistler).

Lakefront Log Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a very enjoyable holiday in this lovely spot. The cabin was extremely comfortable, cozy and well-equipped. It is a bit of a drive to the mountain but if it's a peaceful country retreat you want, you'll get that here, and we found it relaxing to get back to such a tranquil setting after spending the day in the village. Our host Richard was kind and accommodating and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely recommend this holiday rental.

Whistler Ski Rental

  • 4 of 5

Our family and two of our kid's friends spent the New Year's week at this rental. Everyone had their own comfortable bed in this rental. The kitchen and dining room table were large enough to accommodate at least 8 people. When the hot tub malfunctioned the owner had it fixed within 24 hours. The rental is in a very quite community so no problem with neighbors keeping you up. It's a 10 minute drive to the Creekside lift with underground parking. Very reasonably priced compared to staying in Whistler Village. I would stay at this rental again.
