Furthermore, we found it to be extremely clean! The beds were so comfortable. We were 7 of us and we did not feel crowded. Everyone had his own space. The location was also great since we could walk and have lunch at the condo the day we went skiing. We enjoyed immensely our stay. If any of us were to return to Whistler one day we would certainly ask to rent your condo again if available. I would certainly like to be on your guest mailing list for any specials you may have in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend your condo to anyone wanting to go to Whistler. *************************************************************** August 2005: Thank you! Just a quick note of thanks for giving us an opportunity to stay in your condo in Whistler. It more than met our expectations, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the accomodationsl. There was plenty of room for everyone, and it was equipped with everything we needed and then some. Unfortunately, our time passed all too quickly and we had to make the trek back home yesterday.

We had a fantastic stay in Whistler. Your home was perfect and so well stocked with things we needed during our trip. We have stayed at many places in Whistler and your place by far is our favorite! Thank you for the bottle of wine also. View our other properties : http://www.alluradirect.com/180 http://www.alluradirect.com/573 http://www.alluradirect.com/594 http://www.alluradirect.com/188 http://www.alluradirect.com/660
The apartment is very comfortable, if getting a little tired in its fittings. A few things didn't work (power point in the master bathroom, tap drips in master bathroom) and a number of lights were blown and some of the wooden chests of drawers and bathroom vanities looked very worn. The cleaning service was terrific if a little unpredictable in their schedule.
The oven did not function until it was repaired on our last of five days. We spent literally hours of our time pouring over the oven manual. We are a family that likes to relax and cook together after skiing and had our two university-aged sons home for the holidays with us - so the lack of oven changed the dynamic terribly. We were thankfully given access to a unit in a different building to cook our Christmas roast (where the fire alarm went off for the entire two hours) and then drive it home in the cold. We ate three meals out at restaurants that we had not planned on. It is troubling to us that we have yet to be offered any reduction or reimbursement by the owners for this and will have to make a formal request it appears. The unit was also not very clean -we didn't go looking for dirt and are definitely not neat freaks - but the ceiling lights, lampshades, windowsills were coated with grunge and yes, I killed one cockroach in the kitchen. The kitchen faucet also requires a simple repair with a wrench- the cleaning staff must be aware of it. And the microwave turns itself on if left plugged in! And the unit desperately needs a new unwarped frying pan.
My 3 grand-daughters, their parents, my husband & I loved this place. It had everything & more. Close proximity to Blackcomb base helped immensely. The basement ski shop where we dropped off our ski stuff was most helpful & convenient. Tv's in the very comfortable Br's allowed different viewing pleasure, & the computer in the MBR would have come in handy had we time to use it. There were more than enough towels in the bathrooms, & what a delight the kitchen was! We were able to have my son's family & nephew's family over for an asian noodle soup one night, as you had so many big bowls available (they were staying in another condo & I'd brought my own disposable chopsticks). We had a blast. My husband & I didn't ski but walked easily over to watch our grandchildren, some of whom were skiing for the first time. I also appreciated Peter's prompt responses to my email enquiries, & being allowed some flexibility in our checking in & out times when it was possible. Although we didn't use the concierge service, they were most solicitous.
This year was the fifth that we have rented this unit or its twin next door. As always it is perfect for the 5 guys on our trip. excellent accomodations in a central location.Close to lifts and village - Merlins nachos around the corner - underground parking - hot tub - it has it all. Rental shop on site.We will be back!
