|What is it really like for 4 adults and 4 kids? Linda C. - Boston, MA Feb 2014||We loved our stay at Gables 54 and highly recommend the unit for two families. We looked extensively for a unit that was close to the mountain and large enough for two families. Not many available but we lucked into Gables 54. Price and location were perfect. We were two families with 4 teenage boys and stayed for 7 nights. The location was exactly as described and even better than we expected, we were very skeptical, you just never know till you get there. The unit is the closest Gables unit to mountain, a 5 minute walk with skis to the Blackcomb lift/Base lodge and 10 minute walk to village. Everyone says you do not need a car and they are absolutely right! The unit was spacious enough for 4 adults and 4 boys. The first floor with living/dining/kitchen was not huge but comfortable for all. Kitchen is well stocked. One family used the first floor bathroom and the second family used the second floor bathroom. The loft with half bath was perfect for the boys. Enough room for them to have their own beds and spread out. Bedrooms were large enough for each couple and there was a third small room with a bunkbed which we never used. Full size laundry on the second floor. All bathrooms and kitchen have been updated recently. Outdoor ski rack with locks was provided as well. The first floor heated tile floors were a big bonus! We were introduced to Shirley, who provides concierge services for this unit, free of charge. She immediately contacted us when we booked our unit and helped with our airport transfers (we got a private van which was much cheaper than the standard bus transfer and great drivers who were like tour guides), dinner reservations (at times we were a group of 13) and delivery of small amount of groceries prior to arrival. Don, the Owner replied very quickly with any questions prior to booking and during our visit, the TV wasn't working so we contacted him and he immediately called to help us out. We highly recommend this unit and if we were to visit again, would definitely stay again! Linda C. Boston, MA. Feb 2014|
|Ski In / Ski Out ? Hot Tub / Pool?||-----------Ski In / Ski Out?---------How close are the lifts exactly? We have paced it off at approx 150 yards or about a 2 - 3 minute walk over to the Blackcomb lift base area, depending on snow conditions and which paths are cleared, so considered Ski-in / Ski-out by Whistler. From our front door choose the safest path to the left or the right that has been cleared, or the little 50 yard trail through the trees, depending on snow and ice conditions, which takes you out to the Village Trail between Blackcomb and Whistler Village. Walk through the pedestrian underpass and up the steps to the base of Blackcomb Mtn. The Daylodge, Chairlifts, Ski School / Daycare are directly in front. You can ski both mountains easily now by using the Peak 2 Peak Gondola at the top included in your ticket price. So there is no need to walk over to the base of Whistler Mountain to ski it. If you do, we have paced it off at about 360 yards depending on which path you take. Note re "Ski In / Ski Out": Years ago when we lived and skied in Europe, Ski In / Ski Out meant you skied to the front door, plunked your skis in a snowbank and walked in. Not here. In Whistler it is generally defined as less than a 5 minute walk to be considered ski in / ski out. Our condo is much less than 5 mins depending on snow conditions and which pathway you take. ---------- Hot Tub?:---------NO. WE DO NOT HAVE A HOT TUB OR POOL. But we have 2 great options for you: (1) We are the closest townhouse condo to the best Hot Tub in Whistler at Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel at the base of Blackcomb. For about $30 per adult per day, you can access their wonderful Spa Hot Tub, indoor / outdoor Pool, and showers with towels and lockers. They also have our favorite apres ski piano bar called the Mallard Bar, a cigar room, and several restaurants. (2) Or take the group to the Whistler Rec Center a couple of miles north on the highway from Whistler by cab, car or bus. It is called the Meadow Park Sports Arena. For about $8 per day per adult, less for kids, you can access their Aquatic Center with large adult 25-meter 6-lane lap pool featuring rope swing, 8 ft slide, basketball net, huge Hot Tub, steam room, sauna, fitness center with weights and cardio exercise machines, showers, lockers, rent towels and buy bathing suits. Plus a fabulous kids pool featuring a lazy river with spouting bears. They also have squash courts you can rent and an ice arena with public skating times, drop-in hockey and skate rentals.|
|Is the condo bike friendly?||Yes, we have made it so. We have installed a 4 ft x 8 ft steel locker against a concrete wall in our parking stall in the secured underground parking lot. It will hang up to 8 bikes for overnight storage. We also provide a wood bike stand and two 12 ft cable locks to store bikes at our front door area if you wish. A bike wash station is available beside our front door as well. The Valley Trail is 50 yards in front, and the Whistler Mountain bike lift is approx 400 yards ride away where Garbanza Bike shop is located and offers overnight storage for a small fee right at the bottom of the lift. Its about a 5 min walk. A patio deck beside our front door can be used for minor repairs. Our condo is surrounded by numerous bike stores with rentals, equipment and repairs. Whistler grew up a ski resort but has adapted to become a world class bike destination in summer. We welcome bikers and any suggestions you have to make our condo more bike friendly. But please, No bikes inside the condo. Thanks.|
|How Spacious is the condo?||Many guests tell us it is ideal for 2 families sharing. It is 1500 ft2 on 3 floors with 4 separate sleeping areas and 8 beds. It will sleep 8 - 10 people easily. The DR and LR seat 7 - 8 adults. We would not describe it as really spacious, but very family casual and open for entertaining. We bought this condo because our best feature is an awesome location within a few minutes walking distance to both the lifts and village for ourselves and kids. Space is a premium close to the lifts. As Whistler was developed the more spacious condos tend to be further away from the lifts. We are a family of 5 and often have friends with us skiing. Please Contact owner if you have any questions. We will give you candid answers to make sure you love our unit as we do.|
|Can I get a discount on Lift Tickets and Ski Rentals and Order them ahead of time?||Yes! Order through this web site on-line. Best lift ticket discounts are preseason orders before Nov 15. After this, you must order at least 4 days in advance of use to qualify for a lessor discount of about 10-12%. Discounts are not available in Whistler on the day of use, so order ahead of time. Pick up at Blackcomb Daylodge across from our condo where you can also rent all ski or snowboard equipment.|
|What is Available?||There are three big grocery stores (IGA, Whistler Village, and Nester's) and a couple of liquor stores in Whistler as well as many small delis and cold beer/wine stores.|
|Our flights get us in late. Can we arrive really late?||No problem. We have a Coded Front Door Lock and you will be given the code ahead of time.|
|Our flights leave late at night. Can we Check Out late so we don't have to sit around the airport for hours?||Sorry no. Most of our bookings are back-to-back and our cleaners need all 5 hours from 11 am to 4 pm to clean the unit for the next guest. Many of our guests who want to ski on the day of departure, move out and park their car in one of the hotels or pay parking lots for the day. Or they go to Vancouver and book a day-room for the day in one of the Robson Street hotels.|
Long time Whistler owners, so please do not hesitate to ask us any questions to make your vacation a great one.
