Vacation Rental Reviews by alluraDirect

Comfortable stay

Roger from Kingston, Canada
Date: Feb-13-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

Stayed 5 nights at unit 1** Timber of Big White resort. The owners were helpful and easily contactable prior to our arrival. The condo is clean and in good condition. The Kitchen is well stocked, the only small issue is that some of the pans are not in great condition. The building is close to Lara's Gondola and Happy Valley day lodge. The Gondola would take you to the village and you can ski back into the building. It's just as well that the place is so comfortable, it was foggy every single day we were there with soggy snow, almost not worth going out at times
