Terence purchased this condo in 1989
It provides easy access to all of the facilities of Whistler with secure parking and without the need to drive anywhere. It has a beautiful view, and is quiet in the evening.
Whistler is a cosmopolitan town, It seems to be full of Australians, but has young people from all over the Commonwealth as well as Europe and Asia. There is definitely a spot for Francophiles. This is all blended with the underlying conservative, courteous and strongly Canadian hospitality. It is an enthusiastic youthful and happy place to visit with great skiing and Summer activities as well as an inspiring mix of cultures.
The property is well located and comfortable enough - good value for the location in Whistler Village. The Concierge Service that is offered with the stay is an excellent service - all of the details of our trip were handled without a hitch.
Booking the apartment for exactly the dates that were required was successful however it was a little more hassle than expected. Leading up to departure the amount of communication and detail of the information provided for finding and accessing the parking, apartment and locker room was accurate and easy to understand, which was great for getting organized quickly and easily. The apartment its self was basic but perfect for the trip (two adults, nine nights, ski, sleep and repeat) - general accessibility, general location within Whistler village, access to lifts, mountains, shops and restaurants were great. The noise from the village (specifically bars was only really noticed on Friday and Saturday nights) was not a significant issue. For a light sleeper ear plugs should provide the solution. The apartment its self was clean, tidy, warm and comfortable, however if you plan on self catering all week the kitchen utensils were a little basic, but not a significant problem with a little ingenuity. Over all as a skiing apartment it was excellent, the only request would be for a key coded lock on the ski room door rather than a key. Great overall, would definitely stay at the apartment again. Thank you to the managers and owners.
It works but be sure to get good directions to parking and condo. Nice deck if weather permits. 2 bath is a plus. Basic cable
Stayed here just this past weekend and found it wonderful. Clean, simple condo with an EXCELLENT location right in the village, just a 3 minute walk to the mountain. Grocery and liquor store right downstairs. Lovely balcony with a mountain view. Concierge service made purchasing lift tickets easy (they were on our kitchen counter when we arrived!) and because of the location, we didn't have to drive once we parked our car in the garage.
One thing that's a common theme in these reviews is how far the building entrance is from the parking spot, making transporting of luggage to condo difficult. There's actually a door in the garage not far from the parking spot, that leads to a staircase that lets out right at the entrance to the building (NOTE: This door was hard to find, as in the Concierge's instructions, it says to look for the door labeled 'Windwhistle' with a keycode box on it. This is a mistake, the door actually has no keycode box, it just opens.)
Wish the owners sprung a few extra bucks for the HD cable package, but at this price, you can't be too picky. It's cheaper than the surrounding hotels, and you get much more bang for your buck. If I head back to Whistler, I'll be staying here again.
We are seasoned travellers and therefore feel our review is unbiased one as we would never look to give a negative impression, however as travellers, we seek to provide accurate feedback so you know what your getting. Overall, we had a great experience, the location could not have been better across from a pub and Villiage stroll, the layout and view of the suite was excellent, and throwing a log on the fireplace made the evenings. Now the however..for the money we paid, (I've paid much less for more, even at Christmas in Whistler. The place was dated, lacked amenities such as good kitchenware, and needed an upgrade or two. The worst part (which was apologized for) was the instructions to where the building was in the parking garage. We spent 30mins looking for the door with the building name on it, and it was painted over! Quite a big deal with two kids and bags in our hands after a long drive. There was also no access from the building to the underground garage, so you had to walk all the way around to the convention centre EVERYTIME you wished to carry stuff up or down which was four flight of stairs, (that we were expecting) but combined with the garage access was a serious downside.
The other notables that must be mentioned is that when we originally booked this suite, the price was lower. We sent several messages to the owner with no response after days. Then we received a sudden email a week or two later saying the suite listing was still available and we had to go back through the VRBO site to book it? When I went back in, the cost had gone up! I'm not sure if it was the owner or VRBO, but it was shifty and clearly as you can tell, I was not impressed. I am not sure I would book with VRBO again, and just because I felt held ransom to book the suite as Christmas neared, I took the hit and paid the extra. As a consumer, this does not sit well with me. Also please consider even though I booked in Canada for a Canadian site, I was charged USD which is uncommon here and could also be considered shifty.
Want a cheap place close to everything that you can cook in, ski and relax, great, but caveat emptor, buyer beware...
I know some people have commented that the night life in the village has kept people awake at night, but none of the four of us who stayed had any complaints about the noise level over a long weekend (Labor Day in the US). The condo is a great size with a comfy hide-a-bed and some pretty good views of the mountains surrounding Whistler from their two decks. I have no complaints about the room whatsoever.
Our first request was actually denied because the owner did not notify us within 24 hours, but Terrance gave me a call the following day apologizing for not getting back to us sooner, and allowed the four of us to book the room, he and the concierge were both very helpful with the logistics for the trip, and were able to answer any questions we had.
As others have also posted, the only downside was the lack of elevator within the building. Since this was a mountain biking trip, we had to carry our bikes up and down the stairs every day, along with our gear when moving in and out. For us this was only a minor inconvenience, however I could see this being a game changer for a group that is not as able. Other than that our experience was amazing, and the four of us agreed we would all love to rent the unit again!
The condominium is in the heart of Whistler and surrounded by shops, restaurants, dance clubs, bars. It is a 2 min walk to the ski lifts for both mountains. As it is a penthouse with balconies it is quiet in the evening and gives a great view of the mountains.
It has private parking under the concrete building included in the rental price. There is a ki locker but no storage for bikes at the ground floor. However there is secure bike storage at the base of the mountain near the lifts.
Private Concierge Service is complementary. Our concierge Shirley Hills is a great resource for you. She can book transportation from the airport, offer discounted lift tickets delivered to your home, with discounted ski rentals and can arrange ski lessons. Ask her advice on restaurants and most activities including Sleigh Rides, Snowmobile tours, Heli Skiing, Spa Treatments, Child Care, and in Summer White Water Rafting, and Tee times and more.
