|Favorite family restaurant||We love Earls and The Brew House!|
For Skiers and Boarders Only
|Best lunch strategies||If you"re like us, you don"t like to take time or spend the money on lunch. Bring up a fanny pack with trail snack, candy or power bar, and water bottle to munch on the chair rides up. Other choice is to make a lunch and bring it up in a back pack. Store it near one of the day lodges on the hill where you can get it and have a quick, inexpensive bite in the lodge. There are microwaves in the lodges also for a warmed up meal.|
|My Weather tips!||Don"t make the decision whether or not to go up on the mountain based on what you see in the village. On top, the conditions quite often are very different. Check the Allura web site for updated reports at the different levels on the hill.|
Just for Kids!
|Cool playgrounds||Rainbow Park is accessible via the bike trail or car. Lots of grass and great water cannons to have fun with.|
|Great kids activities||The Meadow Park sports complex has a great swimming pool, whirl pool, rope swing etc along with weight room, squash courts and ice rink for the older ones.|
|Great places to eat with kids||The good "ol Spaghetti Factory, Splitz burgers.|
|My top nightlife tips||Cross country sking around Lost Lake with the trail lit up with twinkling lights. The snow sparkles in the trees. Truly magical!!!|
On a Personal Note
|What makes Whistler so special and unique?||Whistler in the winter is magical at night. After spending an incredible day skiing/boarding on one of the world's most varied mountains, to be able to casually stroll through the village is a real treat. Window shopping, people watching, or taste testing the variety of restaurants scattered amongst the twinkling lights of the village is wonderful. Summertime Whistler offers so many outdoor options, you could spend weeks trying them all out|
The Drive to Whistler
|Best radio station||Am 1130 for news and border wait times FM 107.1 Contemporary music and local information|
|My safety tips for drivers new to Hwy 99||Try it in daylight hours and keep the speeds down. If you have time, pull off the road to enjoy the views, instead of trying to rubberneck as you drive this curvey road.|
|What I like about the drive||This drive during daytime hours on a sunny day in the spring will take your breathe away.|
|Worst thing about the drive||Leaving late at the end of a weekend and having to plod along with the procession of cars heading back to reality.|
|Best day hikes||Musical Bumps up on top of Whistler. Take the Gondola up to the Roundhouse. You"ll think you"re in Heaven! We liked the loop from Burnt Stew to Musical Bumps and then back to the gondola to ride down|
|Best places to go swimming||Lost Lake---nippy but clean, clear, and refreshing!|
|Funky stores||The Daily Planet ---One in the Village and another at Function Junction 5 miles south of town. Unique home furnishings and knick knacks. Owners are really friendly.|
|Great walks to take||Cheakamus Lake is an easy 1.5 hr walk with beautiful old growth forest, rushing river, and pretty lake.|
|Places to work out||Whistler Racket Club-- small exercize room. The 3 indoor/ 4 outdoor tennis courts are great. Hardly ever busy during the winter!|
|Worst day hike||Wedgemont Lake is beautiful but not recommended unless you are in incredible shape. I"ve never hiked anything this steep!|
We are two friends both with families. After many fantastic holidays here we just had to own a part of this beautiful place. Whistler has everything: mountains, skiing, hiking, biking, lakes, shopping, restaurants and bars. All you could ever want whilst on holiday. Whistler has something for all ages in all seasons. Have a great time, we always do.

Great Place in Marketplace Lodge
Michael from Kanata, Canada
Date: Apr-19-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016
We stayed for two weeks in April and thought it was a great place. Everything was exactly as described and the unit was fully equipped. New carpets, new HDTV were nice. Good hot tub.
We have stayed in Whistler about a dozen times but I can tell you the location of this place was really good. It is just a two minute walk to get groceries, drug store, liquor store. You don't need to stock up at all, just get your food every day or two. All restaurants are easy walking distance. The shuttle stop is right outside, and the shuttle ride to the base is minutes only.View Full Review

Great Whistler holiday condo
lynpa from Bowral, Australia
Thanks, Richard for another great stay in your Marketplace condo. This condo is clean, spacious and comfortable and contains everything needed for a holiday stay. It is so good to have a washer/dryer, plus a dishwasher in the condo, as well free wifi and a parking spot, downstairs. The location is perfect and the view is beautiful, from the balcony and from the window seat in the living area. The condo is an easy walk to anywhere in Whistler Village or across to Backcomb. We would highly recommend this condo, as a holiday rental. Thank you, Richard for communicating promptly and always being helpful and thoughtful.
Best Privately Owned Vacation Rental
A FlipKey verified reviewer from
Came to Whistler over Labour Day weekend. The condo is the most comfortable I've stayed in of all vacation rentals by owner. Literally located within one end of the village with easy access to all amenities and activities. Owner is prompt, courteous, and easy to communicate with. Will consider this accommodation for future trips.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Paris
Hi there, I spent a week here with my little boy and we loved it! Peaceful, good bed, a lot of space, big kitchen with everything, washing machine; great place to stay in Whistler. There is a liquor store downstairs , a big shopping aerea, a nice playground. The forest is very close too and 5 minutes walk from Whistler village. Have fun ion Whistler Emmanuelle
Great place to come back to after a long day of skiing
Raphi from Wa
The homeowner was very prompt in his communication amd was quite friendly. The bus stop to get to Whistler base is a 2 minute walk and was crowded but we always made the bus, which csme every few minutes anyways. There's a market with anything and everything you could need within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again if I'm looking for a convienently close, inexpensive place to stay while Skiing at Whistler.
Great Stay and Location!
Kimberley from Australia
The apartment was perfect, alot larger than appears in the photos. Everything was already supplied for us such as dishwashing tablets, washing detergent, various sauces and condiments in the fridge, and many more things. Quite alot of storage and the wifi worked perfectly for our entire month long stay. Location was great, right above marketplace with IGa, Chemist, liquor store and bus stop steps away. Very large bathroom with plenty of room for two girls entire sets of makeup and products to be spaciously layed out on the surfaces (which is very rare!). We didn't find a single issue with the apartment, and loved our stay! Perfect for a couple or two singles willing to share a massive king bed.
Aw Condo at Whistler
Stephen Turkovich from Hi
The unit was very cozy and so convenient for our trip. We came to do the Ironman Canada in august, all the events surrounding the Ironman was literally out the back door. Many restaurants, shops, bars/pubs were within a few moments walk. The ski lifts are right there as well, it was not ski season but one lift was going taking adventurous soles up the mountain to ride thier mountain bikes down. Whistler is an absolute gorgeous location with walking trails, hiking trails, bike trails in abundance. The aW Condo is extremely comfortable and cozy, highly recommended!
A Perfect Vacation Rental Property.
Lyn & Geoff from Australia
This was our second stay in Richard's condo, in Whistler. It will not be our last. From organising and efficiency of emails to easy check in, the process was so stress free. The condo was clean, comfortable, spacious and in a central location, in the village. Thank You, Richard.
Exceptional base for our family weekend in Whistler
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Steveston
We - a family of 2 adults and two teenage girls - rented this unit as our base during the GranFondo Race festivities. It turned out to be a perfect frame for our weekend: It was spacious, cozy, in perfect condition, spotless clean and very well equipped (electric kettle, key spices etc.). It was also a perfect location for us - a skip and a jump from the Olympic Stage and finishing line of the bike race and short walk to a superb supermarket that had everything we needed. We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat for a next visit to Whistler, as it would be perfect for both Summer and Winter activities.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from VANCOUVER
Communication was excellent and the check-in very easy The condo was clean and larger than most other 1 bedroom condos I've stayed in before, which made it a very comfortable stay as we were a group of 4. The location was ideal for us with it being in the village and it was also close enough for us to walk to the slopes. We didn't use the car at all during our stay which was great. I will definitely come back and would highly recommend this as a great place to stay. Excellent value for money!!! What I liked best was the cleanliness and location What I liked least is I had to go back to work after the weekend.
Filthy dirty condo
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Atlanta
I am only giving this place (2) stars because of the surrounding community. The location of this condo is excellent. Unfortunately the condo itself was exceptionally dirty. We arrived sometime before 6:00 p.m. and were greeted by a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. The stove, refrigerator, cabinets and drawers were all disgusting. My wife couldn't take it - an spent about 3 hours our first night cleaning up the whole place... I sent an email over night to the owner...and the next morning, he emailed back with a request of photo's "to support my allegations". (Nice attitude) I provided the photos and will gladly provide them to anyone that wants them. Through a series of emails, it was offered to us that the cleaning crew would come back-over to the condo to "re-clean" the place...but who wants the cleaning crew who did a lousy job in the first place to come back-over (after we have unpacked) to interrupt our vacation - when the surrounds of Whistler Beckons. The owner said he would call me to discuss, but since he lives in the UK, the timing didn't work on the only attempt that he made at 3:30 p.m (again, I am not hanging around the condo for a phone call). I really would have thought that he would have put more effort into making our stay more pleasant... Furthermore, I never received an apology or any amount of a refund for our displeasure. The only communications since our stay was urging me to write a review... Well you have your review Richard. To any potential renters: I would recommend that you look elsewhere if you have any type of hygienic standards. By the way, the ambiance of the condo was a bit disturbed by the sign on the wall exclaiming no smoking and the other sign on the kitchen counter announcing - new carpet - please remove your shoes. ... You should have seen the bottoms of our bare feet...Yuck... Oh, and the the threadbare sheets and towels were lame as well. Not happy!
Mid December 2011 I engaged the services of a new cleaning company and carried out some repairs and replacements to the condo which included but were not limited to the following: new bedding, towels, kitchen-wear, microwave, carpets, washer, dryer and 40” HDTV. Since this time (as you will see from reviews since December to this one), I have received nothing but good reviews, which is why I was surprised at the level of complaint I received 21:32 Local Time, 05:32 UK time. Note: my emergency contacts in resort and Vancouver were not contacted as per arrival instructions. My Complaints Policy asks guests to report all complaints to us immediately, by phone and by email as they become evident. Serious problems should be reported with supporting photographs. We will make our best efforts to rectify problems within 24 hours of notification. My first response confirmed and thanked them for their e-mail, and assured them that I took the content very seriously! I requested photographs to support allegations (as per my policy) and also asked if they contacted my emergency contacts to report the issues? Unfortunately the guest took offence at this. My second response thanked them again for reporting their concerns and photos and addressed various issues within the content. I explained the use of the word “allegations”. This term was not used by me in an adversarial manner, rather it is a term commonly used to describe an assertion made by a person that must be proved or supported with evidence for me to take action, hence my polite e-mail and request for photographs. I at no time made reference to doubting their honesty, accused them of being scammers or indicated that they would have staged photographs (which also formed the basis of their responses). The guest asked me “what I was going to do about it” and stated “By the way, the place is clean enough for us now. I don't want anyone coming over here. Frankly I don't trust them.” What I would have done given the opportunity is ensured the cleaning company addressed all items listed, ensuring that the works be carried out at a convenient time so as not to disturbed their vacation. However this was not facilitated by the guest. I tried contacting this guest numerous times by phone and also stayed up late so they could telephone back if required (may contact details are available). A female friend of mine also drove up from Vancouver to discuss the situation and deliver a new coffee machine to replace the one this guest broke. But face to face contact was not made. I did send an apology e-mail and asked in this guest’s view what would be a satisfactory solution however I did not receive a response. The work completed following this guest’s stay is listed below, which would have been carried out on his arrival if he had telephoned my emergency contacts in resort. -Bleached inside/outside of fridge, pulling it out from wall and scrubbing underneath where it usually sits. -Thorough oven clean. -Pulling out items from inside of cupboards and cleaning shelves. -Microwave oven cleaned. -Sink 'Vimmed'. -Kitchen floors scrubbed. -Bathroom scrubbed from top to bottom including clean between shower doors, grout bleached etc... -Rest of unit dusted and wood polished as usual and a light deck clean as the heavy clean was carried out a week earlier. I agree it should have been completed prior to arrival but from previous comments I was unfortunately unaware.
Great location and plenty of space!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Burnaby BC
Richard's apartment was clean, spacious and very conveniently located. Communication was excellent which made check-in very easy. The building is very secure and there's secure underground parking as well. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you would need and your right next to IGa grocery store, the Post Office, drug store, liquor store and restaurants. I would recommend it highly.
A very nice stay
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
We stayed for 2 nights and it was perfect. The location was good for shops and restaurants. The playground is just behind the hotel if you have kids. Check in was easy and very convenient. Would definitely come back.
Amanda G. from AB
we had a great time at your condo, thank you for letting us stay! The condo was perfectly situated within the town, we used our vehicle only once to go golfing out in Pemberton the one day, and walked the rest! The only feedback I have, is that there was no dust pan available after sweeping, the 2nd swipe card was unavailable for our use because it was 'broken' apparently, and we ran out of toilet paper the 3rd day ;) Other than that, I cant complain for the cost and the location. Whistler was just as I had imagined, and we'll be back next year!
Quiet, comfortable, and very relaxing.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Gig Harbor
We had a great stay at the aW condo. The system Richard has in place for checking in and access to the unit worked very well. The condo was clean, quiet, in good condition, and in a convenient location. We prepared most of our meals in the condo which was adequately stocked with basic utensils. On my next visit I hope to find the kitchen stocked with salt & pepper and a few other things that had been used up and not re-stocked. All in all we had a fun time and would come back again.
Convenitent location, close to everything but not in the middle

We really enjoyed a family weekend here, and would recommend this condo as a great location to all in Whistler.

My wife and 2 year old rented this condo and had a great experience. It was reasonably priced for what we researched and it was located within walking distance to everything. We rented a car from Vancouver airport to avoid taking the bus and this condo allowed us to park for free. We will be back. Jamie from Tahoe
Good value for the money
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Winnipeg
Location was great as a first timer to Whistler but would not stay here again especially in peak season. Bed was really not that comfortable and the carpet needs cleaning, otherwise rest of suite was good.
Very nice, well located condo in beautiful Whistler
ammdal from TX
This is a very nice, well furnished condo, conveniently located in the Marketplace. Lots of nearby shopping, restaurants, and well-maintained trails for walking and biking. Reasonably quiet in the off-season.
Whister Village Weekend
Doug Evans from WA
My wife and I went to Whistler for the weekend to get a pair of ski boots. We enjoyed the unit. Check in was difficult because the code hadn't been changed and it took about 20 min to get someone there and get in the unit. The unit is good sized, especially the bath. While the unit is very nice, it does need some love. The carpet is in poor condition, stained and frayed. Dishes and pots and pans should also be upgraded and the bath should have the caulk replaced. We would also suggest replacing the TV and cabinet with a flat screen mounted on the wall (more room). It wasn't a big deal because we don't watch much TV. The TV cabinet was pretty beat up. Location is great, the view is away from the main Whistler complex which makes it a bit quieter. Whistler can be very noisy (this is summertime). The olympic plaza opened the weekend we were there and the party lasted until 3:30 am. We would certainly consider staying in the unit again and felt that the pricing was very fair.
What a wonderful location

Great Girls Getaway!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Maple Ridge
Booking this condo was very convenient. I created an account and payed on-line without any hassles. I received confirmation right away and all details relating to the our stay. All rules and regulations were stated and easy to read. Directions to the condo and how to check in were very detailed and easy to follow. The condo itself was very cute and had plenty of space. We had five girls share this space with out any problems. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to make a great meal. The location was perfect; being across from IGa, starbucks and liquor store. We were a few steps away from the beginning of the village walkway. The hot tub was great and we used it regularly. We wanted a girls getaway to enjoy what whistler has to offer and this condo allowed us to do just that. Thank you for the great condo and we will definitely be back.
Great stay in Whistler
Lyn & Geoff from Australia
Thanks Richard, for providing a great place to stay, on our Whistler visit. The condo was large, comfortable and close to everything we needed in the Village. Thanks also for your help and fast response to emails. We will certainly return and recommend this condo to others.

Living in Vancouver and being an avid skier, I have stayed in Whistler countless times. I have to say, this unit is one of the largest and well maintained and clean I have seen thus far. It has a superb location, in the village, but far away from the bars and late night rumble. Not to mention right across the supermarket, coffee and take-out places. The owner is very accommodating, the instruction to access a unit were simple and clear. It was really no hassle to make a booking, to check in or check out. I am definitely planning to come back.
Decent location, but shabby condition & frustrating access
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
I mean no disrespect, but this MarketPlace condo was noticeably lacking compared to the other 20+ condos I've rented in Whistler Village in the last several years. On the good side: location, size, well designed ski storage, nice parking with higher than average clearance, hot-tub was wonderfully hot, wi-fi worked perfectly. But it needs the following: -> The whole building really needs to solve the awkward limited key-card access set up. We were locked out at least 10 times. Being given 2 keys for 4 people just isn't enough when it takes 5 or 6 card swipes to get something out of the car, go to the hot-tub or outside for any reason. It's ridiculous. -> Fix the shower door that is falling off. It's clearly been that way for a long time now based on other prior renter comments left. -> Fix/replace the broken dishwasher. Wheels missing, and most dishes come out still dirty. -> Fix the kitchen faucet so it doesn't leak water all over with very use. -> Fix the kitchen spray nozzle that is broken off. -> Upgrade the $19 cheapo coffee maker to one that doesn't leak and take 1/2 hour to make a pot. -> Upgrade to some decent basic utensils and kitchen tools. The mix of yard-sale quality stuff is shabby. -> Install a toilet paper holder rather than just leaving a role on the counter. -> Supply a box of basic tissues. -> There were 3 remote controls, none worked for the TV. -> Master bed was big, but uncomfortably hard and thin. It may sound like we're fussy kitchen snobs, but that's hardly the case. The shortcomings were just that obvious. We only made breakfast and spent the rest of the time out on the mountain and village. All of these can be solved with minimal effort. The fact that they've been neglected for what appears to be a prolonged time, leaves me with little hope. Personally, I will be avoiding this location in the future. Good luck with your rental business.
No disrespect intended is not necessary, being an overseas owner I rely on the maintenance company and guests comments. Guest comments in particularly are an invaluable tool. I forwarded your comments to my maintenance company; they reported back that they had previously repaired the shower door and were not aware it had come off the rails again. The other items you have mentioned will be attended to immediately. Maintenance apologized for this bad review and sated they will ensure that these items of complaint are not repeated.
Good, but not great
scott21 from USA
The location and price make this a good place to stay. It is right next to a grocery store, liquor store, starbucks and also the bus stop. If you did not want to take the short bus ride to the lifts, then it will take about 10minutes to walk. There is a community hot tub that fits quite a few people. There are 4 shower towels provided, but no towels for more than 4 people and no towels for the hot tub. This would have been good info to know before going. There is a nice King size bed in the bedroom, a queen pullout, a short, small daybed like thing against the window and then a blow up bed. Our biggest complaint is there is only one key. You need the key to get into the building, the elevator and the parking garage. My wife does not ski, but my friends and I do. This meant either we had to take the key with us and my wife couldnt leave the room or my wife keep the key and we plan a time to meet at the lobby. Or if you go out at night, everybody has to come home at the same time. Very inconvenient!!! You can get a second key, but you have to call a phone number and then pay a $100 deposit. Overall-good place to stay, but needs to have more towels and at least two lodge/room keys available. Also the shower doors come off track easily and need to be fixed.
Nice family vacation

Excellent location, poor acommodation (useless BBQ,dirty place for small children)
A wonderful spot in a wonderful place
Florida visitors from FL
A terrific condo, handy location to all of Whistler's attractions, walk to lifts etc, comfortable accommodations, enjoyed the hot tub and view from the living room widow.
Awesome early season skiing
Visiting Aussie from Australia
We had a great stay at Marketplace Lodge. The location is perfect and everything is very handy. The great skiing we had in early December couldn't be better.
Convenient location and cozy
Janet from Canada
I love staying at Marketplace lodge because we just park the car and everything (i.e. grocery store, coffee shops, video store, bank, retail outlets) is within walking distance or we take the free shuttle, which is just outside the lodge, to the ski lifts. The location is wonderful and so hassle free. After a day of skiing, the condo was a great place to relax with the fireplace on while sitting on the window seat and people watching, as below, others moved about their business in Marketplace Square. The mountain views are also spectacular. The unit has plenty of storage for our ski equipment (5 set of skis, boots, helmets, etc.) so that they weren't an eye sore. The in suite washer and dryer is also a bonus. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this unit.
Thanksgiving for a Great Bike Season
G&H from WA
Great location, lots of room, clean and cozy! We have stayed here at least 4 times and don't want to recommend it because we want it available for our next visit! The only downside is the indoor hottub.
perfect situated cosy condo

Dear Richard, we enjoyed our week in Whistler very much. Your cosy condo is perfect situated in the center of Whistler Village. Everything worked fine. Your condo is a recommendation. We plan to come back. Regards, Eugen
