Location & Map

Location

The Gables is the perfect location! Situated between the Village and Upper Village, it is 2 minutes from all skiing, the bike park, restaurants and shops.

In the winter it is a 2 minute walk to up or download all lifts on both mountains, and to all lessons, rentals and guest services, the Tube Park and night skiing.

 

In the summer, it is a short 2 minute ride across the road to the Bike Park.

The grocery and liquor store are a short walk into the Village.

The Gables are situated beside Fitzsimmons Creek and Park. It is quiet and private, yet convenient to everything. You can park the car and walk!

In the summer, The Gables is right on the Valley Trail, which takes you into the Village, as well as connecting onto an extensive trail system throughout Whistler. The gondola for sightseeing and the bike park are 2 minutes away. Two golf courses are within walking distance. The skateboard park is on the other side of the creek. Swimming at Lost Lake is a 15 minute walk along the Valley Trail, so there is no need to jockey for parking.

For conference goers, the Telus Whistler Conference Centre is a 5 minute walk into the Village, or the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a 5 minute walk to the Upper Village.

Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

Great experience to stay here! My family loves it


Anne from Vancouver
Date: Sep-26-2013

1. Good location - 5 minutes walk to the lift; 10 minutes walks to the mall(will need to walk the shortcut); 2. quiet and beautiful place - a beautiful trail and a creek are just behind the townhouse; 3. clean and spacious place; 4. good services: For two points: a. the owner emailed us that we can check in anytime and check out anytime of the dates we booked. Comparing to a hotel that you have to checked in at 4pm and leave by 11am, without saying too much, you might have already known how enjoyable we feel! b. we received at least two reminders from Kerry before the vacations. She sent us all the details we needed and allowed us to contact her any time if necessary.

Great location and very helpful owner


CBC from Coquitlam
Date: Aug-15-2013

Outstanding location, close walking distance to town. We stayed in the summer so didn't use the lifts but the place has all the amenities you would need. We did get up to Whistler early in the day and were allowed an early entry as there were no renters the day we arrived and likewise on our departure. We did have some car troubles that we eventually ironed out but Kerry was very accommodating and in fact gave us permission to stay as late as needed to resolve the car issue and she in turn made arrangements for cleaners to come the next morning. Great to be able to say somewhere terrific and to get a very helpful host as a bonus. Thanks Kerry, we will certainly be back.

Great winter and Summer place to stay
