We are at the junction of Blackcomb Way and Painted Cliff Road, just beyond the Four Seasons Hotel.

For those looking for a quieter life or unwinding after a hard day on the slopes or at the many golf courses which surround us, relax in our private hot tub on the lower deck with a Canadian beer or two. Better still, if your idea of fun is a night in front of the TV or a good DVD, cook up a storm in our well-equipped kitchen and sink into the comfy sofa and armchairs around a real roaring fire in the living room.

With its cathedral ceilings and galleried landings, the open plan living/dining room and BBQ deck is ideal for up to 2 families or a houseful of holiday-makers.

Great location and home for a large group

Colleen from Surrey, Canada
Date: Feb-12-2017 for a stay in Feb 2017

10 girlfriends enjoyed this property for many reasons. The location was great with the bus stop right out front to the village. The bed configuration was great with 2 rooms having 2 single beds. Large ski storage room in the entrance. Large seating area for dining and lots of space in general.

Everyone loved the place and thought it was good value for the cost. The beds were all comfortable. It's also very close to the door from the underground parking so unloading was easy as well. Thanks and we hope to be back again next year....

Great for larger groups.

Janice from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Dec-19-2016 for a stay in Dec 2016

We enjoyed a nice 2 night stay at this property. We enjoyed the generously sized rooms and the well equipped kitchen. It's in an older development, but still in good shape. The only downside was that the cookware hadn't been cleaned very well...that's probably the fault of a previous guest. Check in and checkout were easy, and we had a local concierge to contact if anything went awry....but everything was fine.

Great Whistler rental

Morgan from New Westminster, Canada
Date: Jun-21-2016 for a stay in Jun 2016

Paul and Corinne's condo is HUGE. The pictures don't really do it justice. Great location, easy to get to, park and check in. We stayed with two other couples and had more than enough room for all of us.

The house has everything you might need for your stay and there is a concierge service that comes with the rental - we were able to utilize Shirley for some great restaurant recommendations and reservations. No complaints! Had a great time and would highly recommend this rental to others.

Great Place to Stay!

Camilla from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Apr-12-2016 for a stay in Apr 2016

This was the perfect place to stay with our group of 8. The rooms were clean and spacious. The location was great - very close to upper village, short walk or free bus into whistler village. The manager responsiveness was quick and efficient. We were able to get a third parking spot which was very useful!

The only thing for improvement: garbage bags and dishwasher soap needed. Would love to stay here again!

Awesome Condo!

Kristen from Kailua, United States
Date: Apr-05-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016

We loved our stay at Snowgoose. There were 9 of us (two families) and the condo was clean, spacious, comfortable and easy to get to Whistler village. The free shuttle picks up and drops off right in front of the condo so we rarely needed to use our rental cars. We loved using our own private jacuzzi after skiing each day. We also made a fire each night in the fireplace and grilled out on the grill on the porch a couple of nights.

Whistler is a magical place and so was staying at this condo. We stayed 8 nights over spring break and it was just perfect. Great snow, views, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, iceskating, exploring, and shopping. We can't wait to come back again!!

Great for gatherings

Shirley from Burnaby, Canada
Date: Dec-24-2015 for a stay in Dec 2015

Tons of space, great for big family gatherings. It would have been a five stars experience if it wasn't the hot tub. We didn't get to use it until the last night of our trip.

Great value

Steve from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Dec-08-2015 for a stay in Dec 2015

The place had great value for what it was and was in a good location but always could be closer in whistler, although cab ride was cheap to get into whistler. The only thing thinking of this from value perspective would be a few more drinking glasses (not wine) and maybe a can of coffee always there but other than that it was a great place

perfect getaway

genevieve from NORTH VANCOUVER, Canada
Date: Oct-08-2015 for a stay in Oct 2015

I recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Snow Goose vacation home, and very satisfied to say the least. We were greeted by a implacably clean, warm, inviting, beautiful home to enjoy our weekend getaway in.

Everything we needed was available right at our fingertips, a beautiful home, a warm hot tub, wifi, walking distance from the village and Just a $5 taxi or 20 minute walk away from the village was also perfect for when we did want to go out.

I would definitely recommend the Snow Goose for larger groups looking to get away to Whistler in a beautiful environment! The only down fall was that the dishwasher was broken and there was no big black garbage bags, but other then that it was perfect!

Snowgoose 15 review

Jenna from North van, Canada
Date: Oct-19-2014 for a stay in Oct 2014

Great layout, great location, was exactly what we needed for our group. However, there was no dishwasher detergent/tabs, which we had to purchase ourselves. There was no wood for the fire, which we also had to purchase. There were no cloths for the kitchen, and no replacement paper towels, so cleaning up after ourselves was nearly impossible. There were also no extra garbage bags. There was not enough bedding - the "loft" pullout bed (which was not comfortable) did not have blanket/sheets, luckily a couple opted to push their 2 single beds together and share a comforter so we were able to use the other one for the pullout. The master bathroom shower/tub was filthy, the grout was black and there was brown stuff in the tub. There were dead bugs on the window sills. When we turned the heat on, the air became quite dusty and we woke all woke up with scratchy throats. There were food stains on the kitchen ceiling.

Excellent Whistler Stay for a Work retreat

Samantha from Burnaby, Canada
Date: Sep-03-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

This place was perfect for our 10 person work retreat. Beautifully located just outside the village, we had the best of both worlds (indoor space, beautiful location). My only suggestions would be to stock the kitchen with a few more essentials (more dishwasher detergent and garbage bags specifically). However everything was fantastic and I would definitely stay here again.

A great space to visit with family --

lmcgaw from Stillwater, Oklahoma
Date: Aug-11-2013

The property was in a great location and had plenty of space to house 8 of us comfortably. The living area and kitchen provides plenty of space for a family get-together. We used this space to enjoy a meal together with our extended family and the children were able to play in the game area while the adults gathered in the kitchen and living area.

Lots of Fun

4west from Wa
Date: Feb-04-2011

We had a really good time. This rental was spacious, though there was a large group of us, we did not seem to be tripping over one another. It was easy to find with the directions provided and was a great homebase! We were able to take advantage of the many things to do and were able walk or take the shuttle to everywhere we wanted to go.
