Welcome to our Vacation Rental!
Welcome to Whistler ( Mountain opens November 22nd...2013) - North America's leading ski resort and home of the 2010 Olympic Games. Most importantly welcome to Creekside, the gem of Whistler, no crowds, no late night night club noise, bar traffic etc.
The Curtis family apartment is in the Lake Placid Lodge resort, at Creekside Whistler. A premium ground floor apartment with direct acess to the Whistler and Black Comb mountain from the Creekside Gondola - say goodbye to the line-ups at crowded Village lifts! Ideal for a great ski day, and the apartment gives you a full kitchen when you don't want to eat out...The kitchen is fab.
I keep my rates low compared to most because we don't use agents to book, we have designed the apartment and maintain it tastefully. I am a cook and hence have a great kitchen with all utensils, family size full size fridge.
Relax in the private south-facing garden and patio ground floor, Heated out door pool, hot tub, and dry sauna area are immediately outside our quiet, ground floor corner apartment. Only 2 minutes to the ski lift, right next to bars, groceries, starbucks,wine store,ski school and ski rental etc.
Please click 'Reserve Now' to book your EARLY BIRD RATES vacation stay! Most of our guests have returned for the upcoming ski season...and we welcome new guests.
Alternatively, feel free to call us at 604 362 2011 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can give you advice on the local area, where to find discounts on ski equipment, and tips on the greatest places to dine out.
Most owners charge you a large damage deopsit....I charge only $100 which goes towards the check in clean, which is non refundable. I pay half the clean as all cleans are $200.
Sarah is available for any questions you might have between now and your trip. We live in Vancouver we know the local area, and can send you tips on how to enjoy your stay at any time of the year.I am also fine with meeting and greeting you in Vancouver, and can offer you advice for both Vancouver and Whistler.
Looking forward to greeting you in Beautiful British Columbia!

We welcome you to Whistler, Canada.
I am the owner of the property and lived in London and other parts of the world before I came to live in Canada.
Whistler is one of the most beautiful places in the world, The snow never fails you.....when other parts of the world dom't get snow we ALWAYS have too much of it. It is now ranked as the BEST ski resort in North America.
I am an avid skier....and My son a ski racer.
Our home is at Creekside, the most popular place to stay...as its has access to both mountains, right from your front door, no need for a car when you get there...Creekside is quiet at night ( beware of Village ...centre accomodations ) as the late night parties go on...till dawn and I have had many nights with no sleep in the village accomodations.
The home is beautifully decorated, with the finest of everything you might need, a full kitchen !!and family Full size fridge to stock up.
Corner , ground floorunit....with no keys or elevators required to get to the pool and hot tub. The Kids can build a snow man outside your living room door !!!
Please call me for any questions or email....
Its pounding down snow right now...and its not even November yet !!!

This is our fourth stay in this great condo. Situated across the street of the Creekside Gondola and Creekside Market. After a great day on the slope there is nothing like enjoying the whirlpool, heated pool and spa. Located on the first floor, you just need to go through the patio door to access the spa and BBQ.View Full Review
Very nice and quiet location
