    Tony from Point Clare, Australia
    Date: Jan-22-2017 for a stay in Dec 2016

    Stayed for 3 weeks. More than met our needs. Very comfortable, warm and spacious condo in a top location about 100m from Blackcomb base. Location very quiet in a wooded setting a short walk from Whistler village. We would stay here again in a future visit.

    Spacious 1 bedroom. Great Location.

    Patricia from Vancouver, Canada
    Date: Jan-01-2017 for a stay in Dec 2016

    Location of the property was ideal - just a short walk to the ski lifts and a festive stroll to the village. Wood burning fireplace and two pesto logs was a nice feature to have. Bed is bedroom was very comfortable. Sofa bed for our adult son wasn't very comfortable but the sofa cushions for our adult daughter made a comfortable single bed. Kitchen was well stocked with the appropriate small appliances and pot & pans. Kitchen could use some paper towels, salt and pepper and some better smaller knives.

    We also could of used washable placemats for the dinning room table. We felt bad putting our plates and glasses directly on the table. Could not find any soap for the dishwasher - so had to hand wash all the dishes.

    All in all - we had a great stay and would consider renting this unit again.

    Our stay Dec 17-21, 2016

    Michael from Bellevue, United States
    Date: Dec-27-2016 for a stay in Dec 2016

    A few suggestions: 1. Upgrade internet speed. 2. Leave dishwasher soap and salt&pepper (at a minimum) 3. Consider replacing bathroom basin (severely cracked)

    All will add materially to the guest experience.

    julia from wailuku, United States
    Date: Oct-14-2016 for a stay in Oct 2016

    Always a joy to stay at the Gables during our summer bike vacation. Great communications via email and lovely surroundings near trails. We've stayed at other condos in the area, but always come back to the Gables. recommended.

    Good, but could be better

    Gary from Honolulu, United States
    Date: Sep-19-2016 for a stay in Sep 2016

    We've stayed in this complex a couple of other times also. We like the quietness of the area while still having good access to what Whistler has to offer.

    This unit seems to be typical of what you get while staying here. It's not super a plush luxury hotel, but it's not meant to be. The positives, like I mentioned are the quietness, easy walking access to anywhere, and also the roominess of the units. Another of the pluses is the mud room at the entrance to leave your toys and any outdoor clothing or equipment that you may have.

    The one complaint that I had with this unit is that it wasn't the cleanest unit we have stayed in. In particular, the kitchen utensils, pots and pans didn't seem to be washed very well. We ended up washing everything that we wanted to use before using them. We didn't even attempt to use the coffee maker, as it was much to filthy, though there is a Keurig one if you want to buy those packets.

    Overall the unit was what we expected, very comfortable and spacious, ground floor ease of entry, and good value for your money.

    August 2016 Gables

    Stephanie from North Vancouver, Canada
    Date: Aug-22-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

    I am always reluctant to write a review for the Gables as I like to keep it a secret. We have stayed in many condos in this complex over the years and they have all been nice. Some are more updated than others, but all offer the quiet complex, garbage hut, parking, kitchens, laundry and awesome location.

    We enjoyed our stay in #2*, the owners were accommodating to our needs and date changes. The condo could use some updating and a really deep clean for those guests that are fussier than me. We would stay here again.

    Summer time visit

    Graham from Langley, Canada
    Date: Aug-21-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

    Good location between Whistler village and Blackcomb. The condo is a good size but needs some upgrading, especially in bathroom. Secure underground parking close to condo is a nice bonus.

    Just OK

    Courtney from McMinnville, United States
    Date: Jul-10-2016 for a stay in Jul 2016

    The condo is fine for what we needed but that bathroom is ready for an overhaul. Next time we need a place to stay in Whistler I'd only stay here if there were no better options at this price point.

    Great mountain bike weekend!

    Christine from Portland, United States
    Date: Jun-29-2016 for a stay in Jun 2016

    We really enjoyed our mountain bike weekend here. Our priorities were having a kitchen, laundry, wifi, and secure parking. The kitchen was well stocked, en-suite laundry was great, the wifi kept us connected and the underground parking was perfect! We were so close to the lifts and village that we didn't have to drive at all during our stay.

    There were lots of extra blankets and pillows which I appreciate for curling up after a long day of riding. As noted in another review the bathroom sink is worn, but everything we needed or wanted worked well (I even found a really sharp kitchen knife for chopping vegetables!)

    This property met all our needs very well and we would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

    Excellent accommodation

    Leonie from Bald Hills, Australia
    Date: Apr-15-2016 for a stay in Apr 2016

    For two people this accommodation was perfect. It was spacious and the weather was warm enough to sit on the lovely verandah some afternoons. Plenty of storage for clothes, skis and ski clothing. The kitchen was well set out with many cooking utensils and heaps of cutlery and crockery. We were able to have friends for dinner with ease.

    We had a mid stay clean and the cleaners were friendly and helpful. They cleaned around us as we had come back early that day. The Gables location midway between Whistler and Blackcomb is excellent. Easy walk to town for supplies.

    We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

    Kenneth from Richmond, Canada
    Date: Apr-01-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016

    Great location near Backcomb lifts. Large ground level unit with parking. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. My only comment would be the bathroom needs updating. Overall, a comfortable place to stay close to Backcomb lifts.

    Top apartment but needs some TLC

    Jill from Caloundra, Australia
    Date: Feb-12-2016 for a stay in Jan 2016

    This is a spacious one bedroom property in a top location. The area is generally very quiet but close to lifts, villages and transport. The apartment was well supplied with all necessary equipment and included complimentary fire logs. We would give five stars for all categories but the apartment is tired and in need of maintenance.

    Having stayed in Whistler a total of 22 weeks in the last 10 years (including other Gables properties) we feel we have experienced a good range of accommodation. The apartment is generally clean but the large artificial plants are laden with dust. The bed was so soft that I kept rolling into my husband all night. After two nights of no sleep I went to the sofa bed. Several light bulbs weren't working, the latch on the door to the wet room wouldn't close. The bathroom basin was cracked and the bath (the spa didn't work) has lost its enamel finish which makes cleaning hard.

    We did enjoy our stay and left the apartment as we found it. We still recommend this place and hope the owners accept these points as it is obviously an excellent investment.

    Whistler condo

    Bradley from Victoria, Canada
    Date: Jan-11-2016 for a stay in Dec 2015

    The condo itself is great; one of the best we've rented at Whistler. My 12-year old son was a bit disappointed in the lack of a hot tub or swimming pool, but you can't have everything. The short walk to the southern end of Whistler Village was very convenient, especially after a tiring day on the slopes.

    Mark from Forrestdale, Australia
    Date: Sep-22-2015 for a stay in Sep 2015

    This was my second stay at this unit and I will use it again if I ever get back to Whistler. The owners were diligent in ensuring that I had all the right information again, sending a couple of check up emails and responding quickly to any questions I had. Highly recommended

    Cosy unit near facilities

    Steve from Norwich, United Kingdom
    Date: Dec-30-2014 for a stay in Dec 2014

    A very well situated unit that is close to all the amenities and is an easy walk. Access to the unit was easy for all the party. The unit was comfortable and cosy for our stay. Thank you. Although the unit was surface clean we felt that it needed to have a deep clean. We had a problem with long dark hairs in the unit that seemed to be everywhere. As it was the holiday period we did not contact Shirley and had we done so I am sure she would have been happy to sort this out. The skirting tiles were also very dirty. We appreciate that a high turnover of guests creates problems. These are only observations and they would not stop us returning to the property.

    The best location ever

    Mark from Forrestdale, Australia
    Date: Sep-15-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

    I stayed in this unit on my own (my wife isn't a bike person) and found it brilliant. The location is possibly the best there is in Whistler, quick and easy access to the lifts and a short walk to the centre of the village. The unit is tasteful and well appointed, you will find everything you need to live here comfortably and I didn't find any shortcomings in the kitchen utensil dept. The bed was very comfortable to me and the pillows are amongst the best I've used ever. I found there was a bike wash station at the complex itself so rather than clean at the park, I was able to come back, get changed, grab beer and head down to wash the bike. I ended up riding for 12 days whilst there so grab a season pass if you're going, break even point for me was 9 days and there's no lining up to get tickets! I would certainly stay here again, some friends of mine liked the location so much they purchased one of the units here! Hint to the people staying here, check the dishwasher for any missing cutlery/crockery when you arrive, I didn't and spent the 14 days washing my 1 plate and cup :)

    The Gables in Whistler

    Donna from Richmond, Canada
    Date: Aug-31-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

    This is quite a large one bedroom, esp considering it's Whistler. It's quiet yet close to the village. We stayed in Aug to attend our niece's wedding and it was perfect for us. Full size kitchen appliances including dishwasher--yay! As she had a casual potluck for about 20 people, we were able to make chicken wings for the party, pretty impressive as all of us were staying in accommodations in whistler. We brought our kayaks up and were so glad to have secured underground parking for the 4 kayaks. Don't miss the River of Golden Dreams. We hiked up Wedgemount lake--longer than the website states and very steep and quite difficult but it's so worth it--glaciers, lake, etc. We even took the groom out for drinks in the village before his wedding...all accessible from this condo.

    Great location. Lacking amenities and cleanliness.

    Mary from Seattle, United States
    Date: Aug-05-2014 for a stay in Aug 2014

    I would recommend this rental for the location as it was close to the village and we were able to walk everywhere. But there were dirty rags laying around when we got there and we didn't have enough towels, kitchen soap, coffee which all would have been nice. Other than that the condo was great and served it's purpose perfectly:)
