Great family time at the Timbers!

Convenient location. The living room and dining area were spacious for our party of 5 adults and 2 toddlers. Our family had a wonderful time there. My two grand kids loved the Games Room. We could watch fireworks from the living room. However, there were some hiccups during our stay --
(1) When we first checked in, the temperature of the hot tub were below 100 degree and we had to find the fuse box to reset the trip switch as there were no power for the wall sockets of two bedrooms
(2) Hot water from the hot tub above our unit were dumped onto our deck on the first evening and eventually our deck became a sheet of ice. Wendy of Vacation Services was helpful and brought in a bucket of deicing salt the next afternoon. Apparently the hot tub above our unit was having problem and the same thing happened two more times
(3) The entry code for the Games Room did not work, but we managed to get the correct code from someone inside the Games Room.
Overall speaking, we had a great family time!View Full Review Owner Has Responded

Sunny Weekend at Big White
Jeffrey from Kelowna, Canada

Nice location close to Happy Valley. Kids loved the games room in the building. We did get some noise from our neighbors above and adjacent. Everybody was good to shut it down before 11pm. Unfortunately, no convenient parking for guests. Visitors have to park in the public lot in Happy Valley.
Reasonable access to the lifts, but you do have to take the gondola to get up the hill initially. That means skis and snowboards on, then off, then on again. Kitchen was reasonably well-equipped but space was very tight in the actual work area. Might be difficult if you want to make a serious meal for your family. All in, not bad value for your dollar.View Full Review
