We started skiing Whistler in the early 70's. Now that we are retired we go up all year round. The spring and fall are especially great for walking, hiking and biking since there are fewer crowds and many restaurants offer great off season specials. Summer is always full of activities as is winter. We enjoy coming to our home at Whistler and try to make it comfortable for ourselves as well as our guests.

Thank you, Doug & Rose, for another wonderful ten days in your very special condo. We've lost track of how many years we've stayed here but it's consistently welcoming, comfortable, spotless and the location is perfect. We also thank you checking in with us when we arrive - it's that extra care that makes it a home away from home for us!View Full Review

The Gables is our favourite development. It is quiet and very convenient to both mountains. It does not have things like bbqs or hot tubs/pool but these are things that are not on the top of our "must haves".View Full Review

We had a tremendous stay at The Gables. Very well-appointment, spacious and excellent location between the two mountains (both walkable in minutes). Many great personal touches including the fire-logs, not to mention the courtesy telephone call from the owners to check on our stay. We'll be repeat visitors for sure.View Full Review

A home away from home.
Shirley from North Point, Hong Kong
Date: Feb-13-2016 for a stay in Jan 2016
We have been to Whislter for many times, having traveling so far from home (we live in Hong Kong), a comfortable place to stay after a long journey is very important to us. This property is by far the best and the most equipped unit that we stayed in so far. The unit is on the ground floor very closed to the parking space, it makes loading and unloaded an easy task.
Like many of the previous tenants mentioned, the location of the unit is ideal for people who wants to have easy access to both Whistler and Blackcomb, everything is less than 5 mins walk.
The owner is very responsive with my requests, and are very nice too.
If I need to be picky, the couch is not very comfortable. I can't really sit there to relax without resulting a backpain. Maybe its just me who needs more supporting to my bad back.
All in all, this is a warm home away from home. We would definitely come back if the unit is available for rent in the future. Thanks for letting us to stay there.View Full Review

Koos from Dodewaard, Netherlands

We stayed for 2 weeks in this condo and loved it. It was our home in Whistler. Fast and friendly communication with Doug and Rose. Good kitchen, bedding, wifi etc etc. The condo at The Gables is perfect between the lifts, restaurants, stores and shops. Easy 5 min. walk. If we come back to Whistler, we will try to stay at the Gables and nr. 4* again.View Full Review
Perfect Whistler accomodation
Olivia from Biggera Waters, Australia
Date: Jan-12-2016 for a stay in Dec 2015
It was absolutely perfect! The hosts called to say hi and check in. The kitchen was well equipped, it even included coffee, tea, and other basic essentials. Location was perfect. Tucked away but still close to everything, which made it nice and quiet. My husband and I stayed with our two children (5 & 6) and the space was perfect. We didn't want to leave! Highly recommend it and can't wait to go back.View Full Review

Emma from Blackrock, Ireland
Date: Jan-12-2016 for a stay in Jan 2016
We stayed in this condo for nine nights in early January. It is in a great location only a few minutes walk from Whistler main village and all of its activities as well as the major ski lifts. The condo itself is extremely well equipped with everything you could need for a stay. Would recommend this condo and will definitely be looking to come again when we return to Whistler.View Full Review

Clean, comfortable, and well stocked
Janna from Brighton, United States
Date: Jun-13-2015 for a stay in May 2015
Wonderful, clean, well-stocked rental. I have stayed in many vacation rentals by owner and this was the best supplied home I have ever rented. The owners were very thoughtful and had a great supply of spices, oil, cookware and cooking utensils, and even bandages and antiseptic ointment. The home is very clean and comfortable.
The location is great! We only had 2 minor glitches. One, none of the HDMI outputs on the living room television worked (but the bedroom HDMI output worked seamlessly) and the other was that we never received the email prior to checking in with the unit number, policies, and check-out time (I could have missed the email, but I searched and could not find it). I had spoken with the owners before leaving for vacation and I had the unit entry code, but I forgot to ask about the condo number which resulted in our having to call them at 1 a.m. when we arrived to check in. They were so incredibly nice and helpful (especially considering it was so late).
I look forward to staying at this home again as soon as possible. It was excellent.View Full Review

A fabulous stay in a perfect location
Peter from Kendal, United Kingdom
Date: Jan-05-2015 for a stay in Dec 2014
A very comfortable property in an unbeatable location for both the main village centre and upper village. Within minutes of the main ski lifts and very quiet too. The property was exactly as described and the owners were very reliable with communication, even phoning soon after we had arrived to check everything was OK. The property was compact and yet has sufficient circulation space and clearly defined areas that allowed us to move about freely. All fittings are in a typical North American style and the most important facilities such as heating, hot water and hair dryer all worked great. Even the fridge wasn't as loud as in some places and didn't disturb my sleep. The added Christmas decorations and general details such as candy sticks were very much appreciated. We would be thrilled to be able to stay at this property again in the future.View Full Review
wwong2015 from San Francisco, California
It was our 2nd time staying in Unit40. As before, the unit was well maintained and stocked. The only problem we encountered this time around was the scare upon on our arrival. The entrance door lock would not open. Long story short, the original digit code provided was wrong. Please make certain that the code should be 100% accurate and a sample of instruction on digital code usage should be given (should we punch once for 1st digit and/or twice for 2nd digit as there were 2 digit numbers shown on each button...confusing?). You could imagine the scare since we did not have cell phone with us at the time.
Great place to stay
526don from Pohang, South Korea
The Gables #40 was a great place to stay. Everything we needed for our stay for days was well stocked. The palce had even pads for women iin the bathroom. And it took only three minutes to get to the ski base. We really enjoyed our stay at the Gables #40. We'll defintely come back if any chance is given.
The Gables unit 40.

Outstanding and beautiful 770 sq foot condo rental. Lovely outdoor deck with trees and greenery with creek can be heard nearby, otherwise quiet when windows closed. Spacious entrance with area for skis and snowboards. Free designated parking stall for unit 40 only, pass required on rear view mirror. Fully equipped kitchen and other supplies. Owners very friendly and helped me with online booking and free tour of condo and vicinity. Base rate was cad$ 89 per night, minimum 2 weeks stay; one of the lowest priced accommodations in Whistler. Bike wash station beside building. Short walk to Upper Village, Village Stroll, Olympic Plaza. I highly recommend this condo vacation rental. No wheelchair access.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Honolulu
Very spacious unit for a one bedroom. The kitchen is the most well stocked I've seen yet. Everything worked fine. The heater in the living room was a little weak, but there is also a fireplace to compliment.
Great little condo in fantastic location between Whistler and Bl
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Edinburgh
We stayed 4 nights in mid Feb. Having previously only ever stayed in Creekside we were very impressed and happy with the location - 5 mins to Whistler village and less than 3 mins to Merlins at the foot of Blackcomb). Condo itself was homely and had a very well equipped kitchen. Booking went smoothly and owners even called during the stay just to check everything was to our liking. Thoroughly recommend - will definitely book again if/when we come back to Whistler.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Tampa
This is a very nice condo in a perfect location close to both the Whistler and Blackcomb bases. This is a smaller condo complex situated in a low-key place away from the hustle/bustle of the village stroll. I liked everything about the condo and really appreciated several key items. These includes not having to worry about dealing with a management company or arrival/departure for keys and such; not paying for parking and having a dedicated parking spot; having a huge mud room for storing skis and gear as you walk through the front door; lots of open space to move around. The two things on the recommendation list are: 1) getting a newer mattress...the mattress is a bit saggy (not bad but showing its' age) and has some stains. 2) There is no garbage disposal in the kitchen which just requires more patience with dumping all leftovers and such into the trash. Overall, very nice condo, great value and would stay again.
A brilliant place to stay...
A FlipKey verified reviewer from London
From the service we received when booking from Douglas and Rose, we knew this was going to be a great place to stay. They answered any questions we had thoroughly and quickly. The pre-arrival pack had all the information we needed, so when we arrived we walked straight in and felt right at home. The location was great, about 3 minutes walk from Blackcomb gondola and 5 from Whistler - and similar to shops, restaurants etc... The actual property had absolutely everything we could have asked for. It was very spacious, yet cosy and we felt right at home straight away. If we return to Whistler (from UK) then I would look straight away at booking this place.
Nice clean condo

I enjoy being at your condo except for the outside parking rather that an inside spot. It always seems to snow when I am there Lawrence
A very comfortable place to stay at Whistler
Whistler fan from WA
