We are a family of five that have enjoyed Whistler for many years and decided to make it our "home away from home". The views, peaceful surroundings, ski in, ski out access to the slopes and the nature at our doorstep were all factors that sold us on the development. With only mere minutes to the Creekside and Whistler villages we are able to experience all that Whistler has to offer, yet enjoy the "get away from it all" experience that The Bluffs are famous for. We would like to share with you this experience and hope you will have a memorable stay in our vacation home.

The comforts of home in a beautiful place.
Bob from Seattle, United States
Date: Nov-28-2016 for a stay in Nov 2016
Imagine how you would stock your kitchen in your vacation home away from home. You'd have a few extra utensils, pots & pans, sets of nicer dishes, and all the little things that make your home your home, and not a rental condo unit. Then imagine you're here at Taluswood Bluffs, in a beautiful unit, appointed as you would your own place. That's what you get. There weren't 6 bowls and 6 plates, but plenty, so we didn't have to wash everything after every meal. There were extras like cooking oil, spices, and so forth. There were extra blankets and towels, and the place was spotless. Pia and Mell have gone the extra mile to make this a place at which you'll feel at home. Unfortunately, we live somewhere else, so it wasn't 100 percent our home
First, I contacted the property owner via Allura to ask about the location and distance from the base. I received a call back within the hour, explaining the location better, with no pressure, in fact just the opposite. It's not right near the base, and you can't walk to it from there. Very clear. Well, I looked some more for a ski-in/out place at the base, but nothing touched this for value, size and quality, so we booked it.
Upon our arrival, we settled in and turned on the gas fireplace to add to the ambiance. Unfortunately it didn't come on. An email to the owners (I could have called, but it didn't feel particularly urgent) was met with a return phone call within about 5 minutes, and they walked me through the process of lighting the pilot light and it worked fine. Likewise when we had trouble figuring out the tv in the living room the next day (I think there are TVs in each bedroom, as well...), we got an immediate call back and walk through what I was missing. We felt taken care of, and that Mel and Pia genuinely cared about our having a relaxed and comfortable stay.
As for the physical character of the place--it's nice, clean, and comfortable. 3 living room chairs and a couch mean there was space to spread out for the 5 of us. You just can't beat it for less than double the price.
The only rub for us was the distance from the base, since it was early season and not yet open for skiing in or out (and ski-in/out is a slight stretch). For us, it meant driving to get anywhere, and we're just spoiled to be able to walk wherever we want at Whistler. The roughly 1.5km road up the hill was steep enough that we were uncomfortable going out in the evening when it was snowing, for fear of not making it back up to the place. If we'd had 4WD, we would have gone out without concern, but even as a stalwart snow driver, I wasn't comfortable risking getting stuck in our front-wheel-drive mini-van and having to put on chains to get back "home."
It's a solid 5-star rating. You will be delighted with the place. Just be prepared to stay in if it's super snowy/icy on the roads at night and you don't have 4WD. We were very happy to stay there, and felt right at home.View Full Review

Pia's home was perfect for our family. Booking the property was very easy and Pia was very helpful during the process. The home was perfectly clean and suited our needs to a T.
The home has everything you need and then more!
I would definitely recommend Pia's home to anyone traveling to Whistler and if I am ever back there, I will definitely contact Pia! Thanks again for hosting us!View Full Review
Great Condo in Whistler
Paul from Poway, United States
Date: Aug-22-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016
We were here in the summer. This place is outstanding. It's a large condo with 3 good size bedrooms and 2 good size bathrooms. Everything is clean and up-to-date. Comfortable living room, large refrigerator, fully stocked kitchen, etc., etc.. Location is great as long as you don't want to be right in the village. There's a beautiful view over the valley and mountains.
My only negative comment is that the process of confirming the reservation through DirectVacations was more complex than I would have liked. I did not have easy phone access, so getting in touch with the owner an making arrangements was a little tougher than I'm used to. However, that is not a reflection on the owner or the condo, both of which were really outstanding.View Full Review
Peaceful and well equipped
Tom from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Jul-26-2016 for a stay in Jul 2016
We stayed here for Ironman Canada weekend as a family of four with grandparents in tow. The property has tons of space, is well equipped and it's in a great little development. It is secure and the access for loading / unloading gear is perfect. Being away from the hustle and bustle of the event in such a peaceful location and having such epic views made for really relaxing race prep. The local amenities in Creekside are a drive away so be sure to stock up on your way.View Full Review

Very nice condo
Stacey from Portland, United States
Date: Mar-30-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016
This was a very modern and clean condo in a great location with an easy walk to skiing. The slope you can access is the Dave Murray Downhill, which is quite steep so if anyone in your group is not a strong skier, then you should not count on skiing this one to return to the condo. Instead you'd need to arrange transportation to get back because there is no free shuttle to this location. But for good skiers, this location can't be beat. I would highly recommend renting from Pia as she was super helpful, responsive and very accommodating. The beds were comfortable with luxurious linens that you rarely find in a rental. The kitchen was well equipped with spices and even plastic wrap. Thanks for a great stay!
My only complaint has nothing to do with this condo, but I would not recommend buying the lift tickets through the Alluradirect.com website because they messed up my tickets and it took 45 minutes with guest services to get it straightened out (although my friend had problems booking hers through whistler.com so maybe all of the sites are problematic).

Great value Whistler retreat
Suzanne from Morrison, United States
Date: Mar-27-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016
This is a very nice property and presents just as pictured. The owners were very responsive to inquiries and questions. Having searched many properties for our vacation purposes, I have to say that this is a very good value given the quality and size of the property in comparison to others that I looked at which appeared to be of comparable quality. The kitchen was very well furnished for just about any type of meal preparation you would want to undertake.
The book in the unit provided lots of helpful information regarding amenities as well as recommendations for activities and restaurants. This property is on the Creekside location as opposed to the Whistler Village, so if you are looking for the activity of the Village and walkability, this may not be the place! We enjoyed the quiet and serenity and the beautiful views from the condo. There is no direct bus access from the unit, but it was easy to get a cab to the village for about $10.00 each way. You can park down at Creekside and take a bus, but if there are a few of you a cab is the best bet because the bus is $2.50 per person.
Another plus to this unit is the availability of parking. We had a rental car and had another couple come up from Vancouver with their vehicle and their was plenty of parking, which I had noticed was not the case with other units I looked at. The ski in-ski out is just a short walk and easy to navigate.
The map shows that the access run is a black run, but don't be intimidated by that....it was groomed everyday we were there and a strong beginner should be able to do it. Overall, I would highly recommend this unit and the interactions with the owners.View Full Review Owner Has Responded

Whistler Creekside Vacation
Robert from Decatur, United States
Date: Feb-21-2016 for a stay in Feb 2016
This property was very accurately described and met or exceeded all our expectations. The communication from the owners was superior as reminders were sent and there was a personal follow-up email making sure that everything was to our satisfaction upon arrival.
The condo is beautifully equipped and seemed spacious with 6 of us staying there. The heated tile floors in the kitchen were great and the view from the living room was fantastic. The hot tub was a 2 minute walk from the condo and each day after skiing we met new folks there who were enjoying the mountain as we were.
Whistler Backcomb is an awesome mountain with excellent facilities and service. If you're used skiing Colorado/Utah however, you need to visit understanding that you are going to a coastal climate and the weather conditions vary throughout the day and depending on where you're at on the mountain. Snow conditions are also completely variable. I have spent 10 days skiing Whistler on 2 separate trips and have yet to experience something other than soft wet snow on the bottom of the mountain. That is the reality of skiing Whistler - spring conditions on part of the mountain year round. Staying in the higher elevations is the solution to this but the downside is I don't feel I have truly experienced the lower half of the mountain. Once you wrap your head around this and go with the flow you'll have an amazing trip.
We'll be back and hope to stay in this property again.View Full Review
White Christmas magic
Angus from Woodvale, Australia
Date: Jan-05-2016 for a stay in Dec 2015
We had our fist ever white Christmas at Whistler and loved staying at The Bluffs. It is a beautiful apartment with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms with welcoming touches like toiletries and candles for atmosphere... I could go in... And I have saved the best for last.... The view is just to die for- especially for travelers like us who rarely see snow! We could watch the clouds drifting through the valley and catch the glint of the sun on the peaks from our balcony and living room windows. Just magical! It snowed all but Christmas Day which for us was just amazing.
We felt private enough to be able to sleep with our curtains open so we could wake to the sight of snow falling and the complex is whisper quiet. The hot tub is hot and the view from there spectacular as well. Though it is a ski in ski out property we were unable to take advantage of this - not being skiers! - but we did note where it is and imagine it would be great if you could ski!!
We walked to the bus stop in the snow on a few occasions and rode that to Whistler, Creekside and Function Junction. Taxis were an added cost for us as we did not have a car - I think a car would be an advantage but we didn't find it much of an inconvenience and the cost of taxis was less than it would have been to hire a vehicle. For travellers or holiday makers who appreciate lovely surroundings, beautiful views, privacy and quiet, this is a great place to stay. If you like to be away from it all, this is your place!
Pia and Mel even added Christmas decorations including lights at the entrance that added to the magic of our visit. The chocolates and card on arrival, the snowman candles and Christmas themed napery and decorations throughout the home were lovely touches. Thank you! We would highly recommend staying here and if our daughter is still in Canada in the future, we will certainly have this at the top of our list.
The only recommendation I could make is to provide an iPod dock or speaker system to enable us to play our music. While we could play CDs, we don't travel with them - or if I was to return I would bring a portable speaker with me. A small thing that doesn't detract in any way!View Full Review Owner Has Responded
Wonderful stay in Whistler!
Deanna from Norwich, United States
Date: Jul-10-2015 for a stay in Jun 2015
We stayed in this unit the end of June beginning of July, 2015. It was terrific! The unit was clean, comfortable, well equipped and easy to find. The view was spectacular and wonderful to wake up to each day. The owners were responsive and welcoming.
There was a heat wave in Whistler when we were there and there was a fan available in every room. I would suggest folks closing the blinds in the dinning and living room before leaving for the day, as the afternoon sun can warm the place up a bit. Overall, as wonderful, wonderful stay! We were sorry to leave and are planning our return visit!View Full Review

Wade D from Victoria, Canada
This was a comfortable and well-maintained property with modern amenities and great views. The owners had recently changed cleaning services, which resulted in a few minor issues (slightly delayed check-in; some supplies not replenished), but they were extremely responsive and rectified all issues quickly. The ski in/out designation is subject to interpretation. There is easy access (a few hundred meters walking - but not skiing as far as I could tell) to the Creekside Gondola lift-line. But one does need to ski down the lift-line trail to access the Gondola. Depending on the snow conditions the difficulty level of this trail can be either intermediate or expert, which was problematic for the beginners in our group (we ended up having to drop them off and pick them up by car at the bottom of the mountain). Ditto for getting back to the condo (which also requires some walking). On the positive side, I spoke to a couple of longtime season ticket holders who told me that access to the mountain via the Creekside Gondola is much easier than in Whistler Village, which tends to be much more crowded with long lines during peak times. Our wait times at the Gondola were minimal, so this is a plus. The location is a short drive from both Creekside Village and Whistler Village so not ideal for those who want to be walking distance from restaurants, nightlife, shopping, etc., but perfect for those who want to be a bit removed from all this.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Calgary
Came up and rented this unit for a week for Ironman Canada in Whistler. Accommodations were fantastic and the top master bedroom provided for a great amount of privacy for those who need their sleep! Just a 5 minute drive from Whistler village, so easy to access the town. Would definitely stay here and recommend to others!
Cozy and Beautiful

We had a great time staying here for a Bike Park Weekend. Bedrooms were huge and cozy. Kitchen was well stocked and hot tub was amazing!!! Thank you for a great weekend. Would definately stay here again!
Great experience at 3BR ski in/ski out!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
We had a great time staying at this beautiful ski in/ski out location. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the layout very convenient for our group. We were pleasantly surprised to see the kitchen so well stocked with everything you need to prepare full meals, including large sized containers and prep bowls. The view from this place is beautiful, the best view of the mountain tops and lake. The owner was very accommodating and responded quickly, including when we needed some extra supplies. We enjoyed using the hot tub as well, which was very clean and roomy. The ski runs leading to this place are actually a lot of fun - nice long runs and not crowded at all. We drove to Creekside base and Whistler base just to explore and found them a quick drive away. I definitely recommend staying here and would choose this place again.
Great time and great place to stay

Clean and upscale great location, have stayed in whistler 29 times since 1990, this is one of my favorites places I'VE stayed in. I would stay here again for sure, thanks for a great vacation!!!
Jaco Claassens from South Africa
This was our first family skiing holiday. We rented the apartment over Christmas and New Year and were welcomed with a Christmas tree and decorations and a bottle of wine, all of which were a fantastic touch and indication of the attention and care of the owner. The house has every possible appliance that you can hopefore. It has a beautiful view and cozy atmosphere. The loack-up garage is very convenient and the slopes are easily accessed from the house. The house has an electronic key at the frontdoor which facilitates easy bookin/out and access for all family members. My kids said this was their best holiday ever. Thank you Mel and Pia.

The view From kitchen/living/dining room is gorgeous. Great for ski in/ski out. Everything is impeccable & fully loaded. Very private.
Great place, good value!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Toronto
We stayed at Taluswood Unit#19 for three nights in March. The place is very clean and modern (nicely appointed), had all the amenities we were looking for and everything worked as promised. The views were spectacular and the ski in ski out, although not right to the door was a short walk, so pretty convenient. The owners were very nice and accommodating and the check-in/check-out process was a breeze. A couple of very minor cons: 1) The foyer area is small and not great for storing gear, so if you have more than four people skiing/boarding that space is going to get very cramped, very fast. Also you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the main level so this may be inconvenient for the infirm or elderly. 2) The hot tub is communal and you need to walk about 250-300 ft to get to it - we had mild weather so it was a minor hassle but this would be a definite deterrent on a very cold day. 3) The hot tub jets did not work during our three-day stay, not a tragedy but you'd think the facility people could have rectified it within 24 hrs. 4) The living/dining area is not particularly large - fine for 3-4 adults but it would have been uncomfortable for 5-6 in my opinion. 5) Both showers (ensuite and main floor) are the standard tub and shower type so if you're hoping for the separate shower stall experience, you won't get it but water pressure was good and hot water was abundant. These were definitely not show stoppers for us as we were there mainly to ski/board and the conditions were awesome! The place offered great value for what we wanted and I would stay here again.

First and foremost I must say that the owners of 19 Bluffs were fantastic and that the condo is great. The location is super easy for ski/in ski/out and it has all the amenities that you would want. Hopefully we will be back next year and this is the place we will be renting.
