Great house. Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful with a large space for everyone to gather around. With the upper floor over looking the main space, this allows everyone to be in the same space without feeling over crowded.

Highly recommend staying here. It's so close to whistler village that has everything you'll need.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Whistler and Skibo lodge was a perfect home base. We had gathered for the Ironman race and with 8 adults - there was plenty of space for cooking, eating and relaxing. The kitchen was perfect for our family meal prep and it was well appointed. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortably furnished and allowed for privacy. The showeres were FABULOUS!! we also loved the hot tub and the beautiful view of the mountains. It was an easy walk to the golf club and a quick ride or drive to town and to Alta Lake. The location was perfect - you could be in town as much as you wanted - but could easlily escape to the quiet and beauty of home. We highly recommend this property and hope to come back in future years!

Perfect Whistler experience

  • 5 of 5

The Skibo lodge was perfect for our stay in Whistler! There was plenty of room for our group of fourteen. We cooked our own meals and had big family dinners around the large dining table. The beds were extremely comfy and the newly renovated bathrooms were luxurious. I used had 5 shower heads!

All the tech equipment is up-to-date with a new iMac, media centre and sound system. We had a great time socializing and playing games around the fire. We also enjoyed playing ping pong and taking a dip in the hot tub after a long day on the mountain.

The location was perfect, right next to the Nicholas North Golf course. The lodge is just a short walk from the village and also offers quiet serene nature walks steps from the front door.

We'll be contacting Whistler Resort Homes again to book a visit for next year. Peter and Elisa who manage the property were very accommodating and made sure we had all the info we needed to have a great trip.

Thanks for the great stay!

Excellent Place for Ski Holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed over the Christmas holidays (2014) and can honestly say, this is one of the best places I've stayed in Whistler. We had 10 people, which included 3 families, and there was lots of room for everyone. The kids really enjoyed the ping pong and pool table and also darts and fuseball. The location is a quick 2 minute drive to the hills or village and lots of trails to walk around the golf course. We skied both mountains during the trip and the place is perfectly set-up for skiers. Lots of room to get changed at the house and plenty of room to let everything dry over night. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook and the heated bathroom floors is a great extra touch. All of the appliances are working fine and the decor is top notch. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Fantastic Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for 2 families and 8 people for a family vacation in August. The home is very well designed with great craftsmanship and extremely quiet and comfortable. The kitchen is large and well stocked - we had dinners for 14 each night with no problems. The location is a huge positive. An easy 10 minute bike ride to the Village and a 5 minute walk to the patio at Nicklaus Golf Course. We enjoyed the deck each evening and I think the home has great views of the golf course and mountains. I reviewed many homes around the Whistler area, and this is one of the best values and I plan to return again!

dishwasher hassles and bears

  • 2 of 5

PROs:

>Nice, spacious house with interesting layout, comfortable seating, nice kitchen, attractive landscaping on small lot, nice clean hot tub, lush grass

>nice neighborhood, though high density--houses very nearby, left and right

>attractive, moderate-sized lawn area behind house, pond with cattails, and views of golf course fairway

>caretakers are responsive to problems...at least, it seems, problems that don't require the owner to spend cash to fix

CONs

>Hassles with dishwasher really intruded on our enjoyment of hte property.

>Unexpected appearance of a black bear ON THE DRIVEWAY caused some alarm.

>We found claims of dramatic views to be overstated

This property is nice. However, it seems best for "holing up"...not really for enjoying the outdoors. THis is because a) other houses are very nearby, b) views are attractive out the back but they are mostly "territorial" views, not stunning mountain vistas as advertised, and c) the presence of bears is definitely unnerving, at best.

*** I find it unacceptable that the property owner does not mention the presence of bears. ***

We brought a half-dozen kids with us. Three were biking on the drive when confronted by a bear at a distance of about 12 feet ("I almost ran into it!") We hadn't heard about them until this point. Needless to say, a seven-year-old and two 12-year-olds are not ideally equipped to handle the surprise of a close encounter with a large carnivore. The caretaker shrugged the issue of the bears off as if it were nothing, jsut part of the landscape. However, regardless of how accommodated the bears have become to garbage-can surfing, etc. there is still significant danger whenever a human-bear interaction occurs. Imagine this happening late at night when, say, an unsuspecting guest is unloading food from a car after a long trip.

Separately, while the caretakers were prompt to respond to dishwasher failure, they didn't solve the problem. We ended up waiting around the house for a couple hours trying to solve the problem ourselves, and standing by during multiple visits by the caretaker and repair personnel. Ultimately, there efforts were unsuccessful. We finally asked them to leave us alone and fix it after our departure. The fact that multiple prior guests had experienced dishwasher problems was particularlly irritating. One can only surmise the owner (or caretaker) is unwilling to spend the money to fix the problem. Instead, renters pay the price. Not OK.

Owner's Response: I find it odd that this guest has waited almost a year to submit this review with complaints about the dishwasher and bears. While we had 2 guests in a row the previous winter who had problems with the dishwasher, we had thought we'd long ago solved that problem and had no further issues until this guest's arrival in early August, 2013. We're not talking about a cheap old dishwasher here, but an expensive, quiet, luxury model. We made every effort to fix the problem as quickly as possible and in fact, the repair company did fix it prior to this guest's departure and we've had no further issues since, notwithstanding heavy use since then. The owner has spared little expense outfitting the house with amenities for the comfort and enjoyment of guests, including the exceptional upgrading of all 4 bathrooms with contemporary fixtures and heated tile flooring so the guest's comments regarding the owner are completely false and unfair. I'm not sure what is meant by "territorial views" but they are very scenic. From the expansive deck that runs the width of the house outside the kitchen and living room areas, one can soak in the tranquility of the duck pond as golfers approach the 2nd green while casting one's gaze further to soak in the views of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The landscaping and layout of the house allows you to do all this in privacy without having to look at neighbours or be looked at by them. But yes, it is a neighbourhood with houses all around. Whistler + summertime = bears. Whistler is famous for its black bears and many tourists come to see them. The Whistler Blackcomb website prominently promotes bear viewing tours. Digital overhead highway reader boards warn people not to stop and feed the bears. They don't generally come around the homes in neighbourhoods unless people leave out food and/or garbage. Our Notes for Guests in this and in all our properties explicitly makes note this danger and warns guests not to leave out any food or garbage. I don't recall the guest presenting the bear story in such dramatic fashion at the time, so my casual response was likely commensurate with the manner in which it was relayed at the time. As noted at the outset of this measured response, it seems odd that this guest has chosen to dredge up recollections of his stay with us last summer. I will refrain however, from sharing some of my own recollections of his stay.
