We love Big White!!
David from Maple Ridge, Canada
Date: Mar-05-2016 for a stay in Feb 2016
Only a couple things on the negative side...right away the pillow cases caught my attention. I looked at them very closely and am sure they weren't fresh out of the laundry....that bugged me. Other thing was the ice maker didn't work properly....spent some time trying things, but no luck. That was frustrating because ice is a requirement for a few "pops".
Having said that, this is the second year in a row we stayed in this unit....we really like it overall and it's very possible we'll look to book again in the future.... but I'll be sure to address the issues.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

Nice place but had noisy upstairs neighbours :-(
nicole from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Mar-27-2015 for a stay in Mar 2015
This is our second year staying in the Timbers. We love it! Great views, well stocked kitchen, spacious entertaining area, comfortable beds...
There were only two downsides to our stay. The first is the bed comforters/duvets - they are VERY hot and to sleep you need cold air from outside. Unfortunately the door to the master bedroom opens on to a very noisy hot tub. The pump for it goes on at random times and jolts you awake (even with earplugs). The other annoyance was the extremely noisy upstairs neighbours who were singing, partying, and thumping across the floor most of the night. I had 6 hours sleep per night, tops... I was glad to get home to get back to a normal sleep pattern :-)
Next year I will try to rent the top floor so as not to have to listen to someone's party vacation.View Full Review Owner Has Responded
Comfortable ski condo
Susan from B.C.
Convenient location with just a quick ski down to Laura's Gondola. Open concept living/ dinning with 2 separated bedrooms and baths. Perfect for two couples. Need to improve the lighting in the second bath. Instructions for the Tv/ cable were not user friendly. The kitchen could have been better stocked with perhaps a few basic spices and placemats to protect the dinning table. Some problems with noise from the upper unit reverberatting through the ceiling. Could use a few games/ puzzles for user enjoyment. Overall a satisfactory stay.
