Local Tips

Food and Beverage

Best desserts

The Drive to Whistler

Best places to eat For fast food ("cause you can"t wait to get to Gables 44) drive past McDonald"s and go to Tim Horton"s on your LHS across from the Canadian Tire.
Best radio station Mountain FM
Best things to see on the way to Whistler Shannon Falls, on your RHS as you approach Squamish. Don"t miss this! A place to stretch your legs!
My safety tips for drivers new to Hwy 99 Drive up during daylight hours. There has been major improvements on the Sea to Sky Hwy, but they are still working on it. Be safe!

Whistler Activities

My recommended non-skiing winter activities Try the new Tube park on Blackcomb Mountain. It is a blast! Only pay for an hour, it is enough. You really whip down the hill, it was a perfect activity for our 10 and 12 yr olds, and us (30+++ yr olds). I couldn"t stop squealing all the way down.

About Us

We have owned our unit at the Gables for over 19 years. Our family has changed from just the two of us and a baby boy, to where our son is now  almost 20 years old, and our daughter is almost 18! Going to Whistler to relax, and spend quality family time, away from the day-to-day demands is time we treasure. We are pleased to share our home with you, and we are confident your vacation experience in Gables 44 will be a time to treasure too. Please feel free to contact us by phone or email

We had a great vacation in Whistler. The location right on the village trail couldn't be better. Our car never left the parking garage! Be sure to read Kandy's excellent instructions carefully prior to arriving to avoid any confusion over parking and getting into the condo when you arrive. And have a great time at Whistler!

Excellent


Ski family from Hawaii from Honolulu
Date: Jul-13-2011

Gables is our favorite location to stay for skiing W/B. This unit is was perfect size for our family of 4. Great service form Kandy. She was immediately available to remedy problem when code didn't work at check in - thankful we weren't stuck waiting on the landing for long. Heated floors are nice! Internet availability was a nice perk too. Only complaint - the dryer. We didn't understand symbols for the dryer settings and couldn't get clarification on how it worked or confirmation whether it really worked correctly. By trial and error, we got things "sort of" dry before the next day. Directions to work all other devices in condo are clear, suggest they add dryer directions.

Excellent location. Nice layout. Homey feel. Within walking distance of the village.

Have stayed here multiple times and love the location/comfort.


Kim & Ken from Richmond, B.C. CANADA
Date: Feb-19-2011

My wife and I have stayed at Kandy and Tony's Whistler condo on several occassions. We love the location, the gourmet kitchen for cooking those romantic meals while enjoying some easy listening music, a cosy fire and a glass of wine. This is a perfect getaway from everyday life in a mountain setting.
