Beautiful 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath chalet in Alta Vista. Fully renovated in 2009/2010 - The inspiration was to build a family friendly house close to all the great things Whistler offers. Large great room with stone fireplace provides an excellent place for families to relax. Childrens play room and separate TV room make this perfect for one or two families to enjoy Whistler and keep the kids entertained. Close to Whistler Village and the Valley Trail, this property has to be seen to be appreciated!
Families or those looking for active weekends -no parties please.

Our family lives in Vancouver and loves to escape to Whistler whenever possible. We love all the Whistler has to offer during all four seasons
Celeste purchased this chalet in 2011
Alta Vista is a quiet neighbourhood halfway between Whistler Village and Creekside Village. You can walk to either Village on the Valley Trail in 20 minutes. Whistler or Creekside skiing is less than a 5 minute drive or short public bus ride
The Great Room is a perfect spot for entertaining. The huge open concept kitchen is great for preparing meals for families or dinner parties. The bedrooms are comfortable and all 4 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.
We had 6 adults and 2 children stay 3 nights for a family reunion. The house is beautiful, private, modern and spacious.
Couldn't beat the location for summer activity, being very near the public beach on Alta Lake, and a scenic walk to the village (appx 20-30 minutes I believe).
We rented bikes to cruise around the Valley Trail, and took the Peak to Peak Gondola. There was much to do at Whistler in the Summer.
The house itself was perfect. There were a few days delay in our emails to arrange the stay, and some miscommunication on the check-in process. This is why I've rated our stay 4 stars instead of 5. But, everything turned out well in the end, and this might have been the exception rather than the rule.
I would recommend staying here.
We stayed in this chalet for a summer family reunion. The location is fantastic, less than a block from Alta Lake and in walking distance to the village via the Valley Trail.
Layout was great for our group of 9 with a very open and spacious kitchen/dining room and a beautiful extension outdoor via a large deck.
The size of the house provided our large group with opportunities to spend a lot of time together while also allowing moments of privacy for each family member when needed.
I would highly recommend this house.
We had such a great time at this home! The location right next to Alta Lake was super convenient. We took the kids sledding on a hill located near the lake, perfect size for our 3 to 6 year old kids. The moms stole away for a walk around the lake on nice, paved path. It's right between Creekside and Whistler, giving the choice of loading up at either gondola.
The home itself is beautiful and easily fit the the 6 adults and 5 kids in our group. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, very nice. The separate TV room was great for a kid movie while the parents ate a quiet dinner. The kitchen is modern and large, easy for many to cook at the same time. The back yard is big and was covered with snow to play in. The fireplace was cozy to gather around and play games.
This home has everything we needed! We will definitely be back.
High ceilings with generous natural wood interior and wood fireplace naturally drew us into the living/dining great room over the course of our four night stay. The kitchen is well appointed and A/V entertainment as well as toys for our two to four year old children are available. Owners are responsive to questions by email/phone and very helpful. The bus stop is a short walk and only five minutes ride to the Village or Creekside. If kids don't ski or need a diversion go to the Whistler water park or tubing park.
This house is ideal for two families with young children and I highly recommend it.
The luxurious house was perfect for our three families, all with two kids aged between 3-7. The open concept kitchen, dining and living were perfect for us. The den off main room was great for our kids to play as it had various toys and the extra room with a TV was another room our kids to play. And what a treat the 4th bedroom with the bunk beds is where most of the kids wanted to sleep at night. It was a real treat for all the rooms to have ensuite, as this is rare. The location was very close to the village and all the activities,liking skiing, sledding and even the rec centre for swimming. The house is so close to the valley trails, surprised they were cleared of snow so the girls had a chance to go for a run. Looking forward to booking the house in the summer, which will be perfect for biking and relaxing by the park beach which is few steps away.
We rented this house from a Friday - Monday weekend in September to celebrate my father's 65th birthday and really enjoyed our stay. We had two families of four with 2 small children plus my parents for 10 people total. The house was perfect for our needs and very well set up with fully equipped kitchen and baths. Each of the four bedrooms has full bath which is really an ideal set up.
The main room contains living room, dining room and kitchen and is quite large and well suited for big groups and has a built in sound system and a cozy fireplace with ample wood. There is a separate TV room as well as a small play room off the main room that is good for kids.
A major highlight that I think is rare for Whistler is the huge grassy flat fenced backyard which was perfect for the small children to run around and to toss the ball around. There is also a waterfront park and playground less than a block down the street with swimming beach for the summer months.
The house was quite clean and felt and did not feel like a rental accommodation. Very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
