Overview

Kootenay Boundary E Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3.5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 9

The main entrance to Blacksmith 7 opens up onto a slate landing, a split level entrance with carpeted stairs to the upper and lower levels of this 3 story townhome. The middle level has all the living areas.

The kitchen has slate floor and dark wood cabinets with black granite work surfaces. With floor to ceiling cabinetry along one wall there is plenty of cupboard space in this well equipped kitchen. The breakfast bar has 3 leather bar stools. Through the kitchen windows there are views up the mountain towards the village and Gondola. The dining table seats 6 comfortably.

Off the kitchen is the balcony with the hot tub. Views from here are up to the Big White Village, the mountain, and the Gondola.

The living room features a large stone fireplace with electric fire. This room has comfortable sofas, coffee table, side tables with table lamps and a 46” flat TV, with DVD Player, Blu Ray, stereo, surround sound and even an Ipod docking station. There is a narrow balcony off the living room to admire the amazing panoramic views of the Monashee Mountains.

A glass door leading from the living room has a den with an office desk, lamp and a double futon couch.

The stair landing has a convenient half bathroom with a toilet and ornate pedestal sink.

Upstairs to the top level, on the top landing there is a laundry cupboard with a washer and dryer. On this level there are 2 ensuite bedrooms!

The master bedroom has a queen bed with bedside tables and table lamps. This room has a corner feature hearth and fire, large slate window ledges and a 27” flat screen TV. This master has a bath suite with a jet bath tub and an overhead shower.

The second bedroom has an ornate iron queen bed frame, with matching lamps on the bedside tables. This room also has an ensuite with a large overhead shower head, toilet and pedestal sink.

All the way downstairs to the ground floor is a living area/dorm style bedroom, with a bathroom and den area which is ideal for kids.

The downstairs living area has a twin bed and a single over single bunk bed tucked in the corner. This large comfy room has a sectional sofa, coffee table and a 31” Flat TV, with a Sony Playstation, a few PS3 Games and a DVD Player. Also has a comfy bean bag chair for game playing! There are 2 doors from this second living area - one leads out to the groomed ski path that leads to 3 lift chairs. The second door leads to the garage that has a boot drying room built into the wall.

This townhome is on Whitehorse Lane, ski out access is amazing - ski in via Gondola way and drop down just before you come to the bridge. From here it is a short walk over the road to the townhomes. To walk to Big White Village, you would take the path back up to Gondola Way and either walk up the groomed lit path or down the path to Happy Valley where you can take a Gondola ride up to the Village Centre - either way is between 10 - 20 mins journey. Or you can always hop on the Big White Community Bus that circuits Big White during the ski season.

Disappointing

  • 3 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was adequately helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was happy with the location.

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The few issues I had with this was they only had three nights available and yet I was charged a "short stay fee of $400" Also, the list of how ey wanted the suite left was ridiculous. Take the garbage out and locate the nearest refuse spot, run the dishwasher but be sure to stick around and put the dishes away. When evaluating the over $500 per night charge, one would have hoped they would have employed a cleaning crew. The staff was very nice to deal with and location was good (not great).

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we were mostly happy with our rental, however, there were some problems that we think need to be addressed. The bunk beds in the lower room are *terribly* uncomfortable; the mattresses sit on a slant and are supported on a flat piece of wood, instead of proper bed slats. The whole bunk is made of logs that are a wobbly assembly. It seems a little home-made, which isn't reassuring in a bed you, or your kids, are climbing into, or out of, in the night. The cleanliness wasn't 100%; there was visible dirt under every piece of furniture and a used bandaid in one of the beds. The kitchen faucet was broken. As with almost every condo we've ever stayed at in Big White, noise is an issue (we've stayed in 6 different units/buildings over the years). There is zero sound proofing between floors of the unit, so settling young kids for the night when the adults are still awake was tricky. Meanwhile, when the kids are up early, jumping in the living room, the adults downstairs were woken immediately. We didn't notice sound issues between units next door, however. The location is good for ski out, not as good for ski-in. (There's a cat track down to the Plaza/Snow Ghost/Ridge Rocket. Coming home you need to come down via the Walking Path between the Village and Happy Valley, under the Gondola, and it's a bit of a scoot down the hillside to the parking lot, and/or you need to cross Big White Road on foot. If you're not skiing, you can always walk DOWNHILL to get to Happy Valley (to the gondola) or, from the Village to the condo, via the Walking Path, which is nice. There is a short walk uphill to access the path, however, which might be tricky for some. This unit sleeps 9 people, but the common area is too small for 3 separate families, as in our party. The common area is all on one level - living, dining and kitchen, then two patios, one with hot tub.
