Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

Best vacation rental we've ever had


Kane from CA
Date: Mar-22-2014

We've probably rented over 100 places in about 15 countries from sites like Flipkey, Airbnb, Booking.com, etc. This condo at The Raven is amazingly well-equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some (even a garlic press). The private hottub was awesome. The Nintendo Wii was a lot of fun too. The keyless entry system for the entire building was so convenient when we had friends visiting. Our only complaint would be that the bed sheets weren't the softest, felt too much like what you'd expect in a hospital ;)

Great stay!!


A FlipKey verified reviewer from San Diego
Date: Mar-19-2014

We have stayed in hundreds of vacation rentals and can honestly say that the Raven is in our top 5 worldwide. We were lucky enough to stay here for 2 1/2 months, and couldn't have been happier. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with high quality appliances. Everything you will need is there to make a great meal. The beds and bedding were comfortable. We loved having a steam shower in the master bath. The Wii and hot tub were two of our favorite amenities, a great way to relax after a day on the mountain. We stayed in both #209 & #309, both were fantastic. Other pros: We loved the cork flooring, which was always warm. The sinks were also very cool and pretty. We loved having a washer/dryer in unit and underground heated parking. The keyless entry was very convenient. It is a short 3-5 minute walk to the free Gondola which takes you up to the village, and then you can fully snowboard/ski home. Cons: It can be a bit noisy with neighbors overhead. Great stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking in Big White.

Peace of mind!


Andrea & Charles from BC

A fantastic facility. Everything we needed was there and plenty to do with two small children.

great accomodation, fun had by all, kids love the mountain, i have been going to big white for 5 years with my family, and i plan to return to the raven again next year

Great Family Ski Trip !


A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
Date: Jan-25-2011

We enjoyed our stay at Raven. Easy to find and comfortable accommodation. We did find the condo too hot at night even with windows open. Lighting over the dining table was too harsh, could use a dimmer bulb or install dimmer switch. There were candles but no matches and we don't smoke so had none either. Would have preferred to know that there was no basic food provided, (maybe I missed that message). Have rented other places that have some sugar, oil & vinegar, tea, coffee and long life milk. Would have liked a map to show us how to ski back to the cabin. Don't take my suggestions too seriously, we really enjoyed the place and were fortunate to have good snow conditions and sunny weather! Many thanks!
