Great value in Whistler

Excellent budget accommodation at The Aspens.

Kevin from Port Coquitlam, Canada
Date: Aug-11-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

We have stayed at the Aspens many times. We like this condo on the pool view side of the building. The kitchen gets 4-stars because it has a narrow 3-ft wide galley but is well equipped with everything in working order. Many condos at The Aspens are renovated and can charge a bit more but this condo is excellent value for a suite with the original kitchen, bathroom and dcor. Excellent WiFi, BBQ, air conditioning in master BR and location. Bed is decent but a bit firm. Good communication from Bob and helpful guest info in the suite. We did not make use of the concierge service but believe this to be nice value added for a newbie to Whistler. Would stay here again due to the location, view, air conditioning and value for a weekly rate in the summer.

Comfortable and quiet unit

John from Bellingham, United States
Date: Jul-17-2014 for a stay in Jul 2014

My wife and I have stayed at several units in the Aspens both summer and winter and have been pleased with all of them. This unit has a nice view over the pool to the mountains on the west side of the valley. It is quiet, clean, nicely appointed and the king bed is comfortable. It also has WiFi, which is not in the description. It is ski-in-ski out during the winter and bike-in-bike out during the summer. The Lost Lake mountain bike trails are a few minutes away by bike. My only complaint is that the bike storage room is absolutely packed (mostly with dusty rarely-used or abandoned bikes) so bike parking was a challenge. We look forward to our next visit.

You don't have to be able to ski


Adrian and Margaret Foster from Auckland, New Zealand
Date: Jun-27-2011

We are a non skiing couple in our late 50s who love to walk in woods and alpine areas during spring and summer. We spent three very enjoyable days in Whistler in June 2011 and were completely satisfied with the facilities at The aspens on Blackcomb. Bob and Katie's condo is beautifully appointed and maintained, with a fully equipped kitchen which enabled us to self-cater. The aspens is in a quiet location, yet well-planned walkways mean that all the village amenities are a short walk away. There is also a very handy group of shops and restaurants a couple of minutes walk away in the Upper Village area, and near the chairlift entry point known as Blackcomb Base. One of best features of this condo is the sheltered balcony off the living room which looks over the pool complex to the mountains, a fantastic spot at any time of the day. We did several of the well signposted walks around the town and were lucky enough to see a bear near the closest golf course. We highly recommend this condo to everyone and we plan to return someday.

Date: Jan-05-2011

Location, location this condo is excellent for ski on ski off accessability to Blackcomb and Whistler. The owners obviously care about their condo, everything is well cared for and cozy comfortable. The pool & hot tub are convenient, clean and in a lovely location for mountain viewing at the end of the day. The short walk to Whistler Village is ideal for shopping and dining. You have the peace and quiet at night but the fun & excitement is very close by. You won't regret a week or two at this lovely spot.

great spot!


helga from windsor, ontario
Date: Jan-03-2011

the condo itself was lovely and super convenient, however, given the time of year, nothing 'touristy' at the resort was open.. no golf anywhere. we couldn't even rent a bicycle. the bobsled course was available to view and that was just a great place to visit. the zip lines were also open, and the 'jeep' tours. overall, the village was great with alot of restaurants offering good values, considering the time of year. hank goodness for the pool and hottub.
