Vacation Rental Reviews by alluraDirect

Excellent Stay at The

Jeanie from Maple Ridge, Canada
Date: Aug-12-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

We had a great stay here. The owners were very helpful and kindly accommodated our specific needs. The home itself is perfectly located right on Blackcomb and is just a short walk to the Blackcomb area and not much further to Whistler Village, It is a little quieter than being in the hustle bustle and noise of Whistler Village which I like. The home was spotlessly cleaned and extremely well equipped and it feels like a real home from home rather than just some hotel room. Great for a summer vaycay but we hope to go back again during ski season as ski in ski out is the only way to go. Pool, hot tub etc were all great and the staff were very helpful. Would highly recommend this home and will definitely stay again.
