Overview

British Columbia Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-9)

A true ski in / ski out experience! Just off Serwas run and minutes away from the village. This 4 bedroom 3 bathroom chalet in Snowy Pine Estates boasts 25 foot high vaulted ceilings and windows floor to ceiling. The massive views of the valley can be seen from the kitchen table, hot tub, living room and master bedroom.

We cater 3 day Min Stay Vacations and only request a 5 day stay during new year.

Imagine yourself sipping coffee by the gas fireplace as the sun comes up over the mountain tops and getting ready to gear up and hit the slopes. After your day on the slopes or relaxing in the chalet there is a full kitchen where you and your loved ones and friends can enjoy an amazing dinner, BBQ, drinks and laughs. Brand new 51' flatscreen, Blu-ray Player, Apple TV, Xbox and stereo system. Guests have told me they enjoy watching the Saturday night fireworks from the hot tub while enjoying a glass of wine!

We’ve got free wifi, gas fireplace, sparkling clean hot tub serviced daily, lots of parking, only 10 steps and 5 stairs to the front door, wine glasses and cookie sheets.

Just outside the front door there are also greats spots for kids to go sledding, snowshoeing and a snow machine trail from Happy Valley.

All linen and bath towels are cleaned and ready for your Five STAR stay at The Natural High.

We would be delighted to have you as guests this season. The good news is, at Big White, the snow is great every season!

Fresh Pow-WOW!

  • 5 of 5

I recently visited The Gallo's place up at Big White. It was incredible. We were a large group (10) so initially I was a bit concerned that we would be on top of one another. This wasn't the case. There was lots of room between the three floors, lots of beds and seating for everyone. The place was cozy and comfortable, even for a big crowd like ours.

Location-wise it couldn't have been any better. It was far enough away from the Village for some peace and quite, but close enough that we could walk along the well-lit path to the pulse of the mountain in less than 15 minutes.

The hot tub was a dream! We even had the maintenance folk pop in to check on it for us, just to make sure everything was perfect.

Jo Gallo was a pleasure to book with. He responded quickly and informatively, and provided all sorts of information about the house and the utilities as well as the local amenities.

It's clear that this place is Jo's paradise and he wants others to enjoy it as much as he does. We definitely did. This was one of the best trips I've been on in a loooong time.

Excellent ski-in/out at great price

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this chalet, it is compact but had tons of space, everybody had their own bed and we loved the place. It was well equipped, had a great hot tub. Plenty of parking and storage outside for skis and equipment. The ski in and ski out access was awesome, including easy access to the village, once we parked the cars they didn't move until we left. Jo is a great host, stayed in communication to make sure we got settled in and the same on our way out to make sure everything was ok. We loved the xbox, played skate 3 a bunch while we had down time! We will come back!

Excellent ski IN/OUT long-weekend

  • 5 of 5

The 8 of us spend an awesome long weekend in your cabin. The chalet is really nice, clean and well maintained with all needed amenities! The spacing was prefect! We all felt super good in it! The hotTub, after a full day skiing was a blast! And with a really nice view! We would definitely come back, recommend this place!

Thanks to Joe for being a great and responsive host.

Fun March ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We had eight of us come into the chalet for an extended weekend. The skiing was great! The space was super conveniently located and had everything we needed. We cooked up some communal dinners every night - the kitchen was stocked with all utensils and things we needed to make awesome dinners. The hottub by the front door was just what the doctor ordered after a long day of skiing. Jo was very responsive and polite with anything we needed. Would come back again!

Spring Break 2015

  • 1 of 5

We were a party of 5 adults and 5 kids arriving for a week to enjoy March Break with a large party in various units more centralized in the resort core. We were called in advance by the owner requesting us to treat his place with care as there had been some renters in before us who had not done so. We arrived disappointed finding an ill equipped kitchen, threadbare towels, and not even enough linens for the futon that is included in sleeping accomodations. Linens were also quite old and extra blanket we found to cover the futon was quite stained. We had been promised a 5 star stay, and not told to bring soap, dishwasher detergent, or advised of the broken washing machine. In any event, we remained positive and focused on being together to enjoy. The following day I received a call from owner telling me his neighbour told him there was a leak in his unit. He had also allowed a plumber access (while we were on the hill) without telling us in advance. They returned later to pull up the carpet in the bunk room as water was leaking in. The carpet was rolled back so half of the bunk was on concrete which exposed mold and water. Unfortunately our children had to sleep there while the leak was repaired the following day. At night while searching for a stuffy we found it under the bed soaked and filthy. The next day they were back again, putting carpet back and steam cleaning. We came back to wet carpets still disappointed. Then the washer had to be replaced, a day later. Joe seemed angry that we were disappointed but explained he had to travel 10 hours (to and fro Vancouver) to bring it to us. Somehow we were supposed to be appreciative? (the unit did indicate a washer was included).. I could go on and on... After the trip ended and we returned home, he tried to withhold our damage deposit indicating we had pulled tiles off the hot tub (or rather our unattended children had). He showed evidence of this (pictures which could have been taken who knows when) and claimed his hot tub guy was in Wednesday (who we had met) and discovered the damage. I personally spoke to the maintenance man who told me everything looked fine, but that the owner had wanted the perimeter tiles replaced (but wasn't necessary). He was trying to place blame on us to use our funds to replace this... Please be for-warned. I speak for the group of 5 adults who stayed here, and would not recommend this unit to anyone!

Owner's Response: Well unfortunate the bad deeds of others wrecked this groups stay ..... and we feel horrible that you were inconvenience. The Group was notified the day they checkin that the machine was not working. I was not upset at bringing a new washer machine I was confused as how a group of 8 could need more that 40 towels in a day and a half when they had full access to the owner lock up which also had tons of sheets for all the sleeping areas in the cabin. Some of this review just does not make sense.. I tried my best to help them out, as they did not RESPOND TO MY PHONE CALLS... Please see all other reviews and decide for yourself ....
