Our stay at Casa Kettlewell was great from the pre-booking all the way to check out. The owners/managers were prompt in answering all questions and made the whole process a breeze. The location with free parking was ideal, close to shuttle, next to the Marketplace, and a short walk to nightlife and restaurants. Overall a great vacation, especially because mother nature brought us a bunch of snow :). We will certainly recommend it to anyone, as long we don't have plans to come back that week. - Trip Advisor
Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations. We really enjoyed our stay. The view was great and the area was quiet. We were able to walk to the village, which we loved. We hope to stay again. - The Siller Family
Casa Kettlewell was absolutely amazing! We all loved how close the house was to the village. It was also nice having a large kitchen with all of the amenities. Cooking dinner in the house every night saved so much money, and was so great. Thanks for an easy, affordable vacation. We're already looking for a weekend when we can book it again. Thanks! - Review posted on Homeaway

Dear potential or past guest, I was drawn to Whistler by my kindred wilderness spirit. This snowy peak ridden region is some of the most beautiful I've experienced thoughout the world. Wilderness spaces are a conduit to reflective and peaceful emotions. Our role and the challenges of our hyper paced world can be confusing and overwhelming unless we make time to recreate and reflect. I've searched all over Whistler and feel that Granite Court balances serene alpine beauty with "value" moreso than any other townhouses. Walk around the lit trail of ancient Lost Lake. Wait for the crowds to subside at Whistler peak and embrace the sounds of wilderness silence with the volcanic Black Tusk in the foreground. Extend a friendly hand to an international or local and learn about them. Revel in the views. Respect the beauty of the hill. Leave no trace and recycle everything. You're all here to experience different things. No one is watching. Co-create memories! My wilderness sentiments are with you from Vancouver. Enjoy the Casa Kettlewell vacation abode. Sincerely, Damian Kettlewell www.alluradirect.com/749 www.alluradirect.com/605
Our thirteenth trek to Whistler from the UK. Have stayed in a few places usually nearer the slopes. WIth skis kept near the slope this was easier. So great location. I would not have booked this appartment if I had read these reviews but would have missed out on something. It is not luxurious, everything is somewhat tired. Benefit of the doubt - it was near end of the season. Whilst I don't think we marked or damaged anything, it was nice being able to relax knowing a scuff would not show. So I would rent again, but would ensure that the sofabed had been replaced before expecting anyone to use that. I ended up sleeping on the floor, it was more comfortable.
This is a review for our stay for 3 months from December 2012 thru to March 2013. Seeing this was for an extended stay over the peak season, this was an expensive booking for us. Unfortunately we were not happy with many aspects of the property. The online claim of "absolutely clean" was not true in our case. It took my husband and I the first two days attending to cleaning of scuffed, scratched walls, vacuuming piles of dust from behind beds, dusting skirting boards, cleaning mould from bathrooms, purchasing new linen and pillows for beds and generally giving the property a spring clean. As we were responsible for cad 1,000 damage deposit we were keen to identify any broken or unclean items very early on in our stay to cover ourselves. Hence the many photos that we have taken. There was no iron in the property until we purchased one in week 6. No stereo was available as stated online and the fully stocked kitchen had broken appliances that were not replaced until week 6 of our stay. There was a long list of property items that needed attending to by their maintenance man after we had checked in leaving us without a working shower in one bathroom for longer then one week. Other items that needing attending to just after check in were the fireplace ( cutting in and out), kitchen tap leaking (needed replacing), laundry door getting stuck (hinges needed changing from one side to the other), broken vacuum cleaner (replacement only just managed to clean the white carpet in the condo). As you can see we had a maintenance man in and out of the property on and off for the first couple of weeks which meant we hang around to be there when he was thus losing our holiday time on maintenance items that should could have/should have been identified and attended prior to our check in. Unfortunately, we had to return home 2 weeks early due to emergency surgery and subsequent rehabilitation of an injury sustained by our son. Casa Kettlewell owners initially said that if the property was re booked for our dates that we cancelled they would, - this is their email response - "we will try to relet the space out for the time you would have otherwise occupied the unit. Should this happen, we will refund you the net rental income from this time period." However, when they did in fact let the property out for part of our cancelled dates they reneged on this offer of a refund. Essentially getting paid twice for the relet nights. **Bad Karma** Needless to say how the property is managed and maintained is somewhat disappointing. They were defensive when we mentioned issues with cleanliness and poorly maintained items, however you can judge from the pictures yourself. We have travelled a bit in the last few years whilst our children are at a good age and we always do thorough research on all aspects of the properties we are interested in and the location etc. Online pictures and reviews can only tell give you so much of the story and only upon closer inspection could you have seen many of the issues mentioned above. The location of Casa Kettlewell is great, the complex itself is quiet, but you do hear the revellers heading home after hours when the night is quiet. But this is be be expected in Whistler. The winter view from the front is enchanting and from the back of the property is beautiful as well. If the property was better maintained and the current furniture, beds and linen were updated it would be a condo worth considering to book.
We stayed here for the week of Ironman Canada and it was perfectly located. Close to the activities but not in the middle of them. Close to the grocery store, coffee shops, drug store, etc. The unit is a little dinged up and the beds are not the most comfortable I've slept in. The kitchen was equipped with most of the stuff we needed. The pots and pans are worn out and need replacing. The windows are old and a pain in the butt to open/close. Parking was secure and great.
We stayed for 4 months and had absolutely fantastic time, everything we needed was there, great position for the slops and the town, would recommend.
Overall the townhouse was very comfortable and we were happy with it.. There were however a few things that we thought should be fixed or better maintained: two burned out light bulbs - one in each bathroom no remote for TV no remote for DVD player much mold and mildew inside the main bathroom shower handle main bathroom fan does not work left back burner on range top is 50% burned out fridge door has no handle, and door does not close on its own instruction book in townhouse needs to be updated with the cureent codes for garage and trash doors the pull-out sofa mattress is worn out the foam pad for the cot is very marginal We enjoyed our stay and would likely rent again at Casa Kettlewell. Thanks for renting to us!
Very nice place to stay, quiet and easy to clean. Had a great Holiday!
Our stay at Casa Kettlewell was great from the pre-booking all the way to check out. The owners/managers were prompt in answering all questions and made the whole process a breeze. The location with free parking was ideal, close to shuttle, next to the Marketplace, and a short walk to nightlife and restaurants. Overall a great vacation, especially because other nature brought us a bunch of snow :). The only thing missing was a stereo... we made due just fine. We will certainly recommend it to anyone, as long we don't have plans to come back that week.
We spent New Years Eve weekend at Casa Kettlewell. We were a group of seven, and were all impressed by the place, particularly the location, convenience of a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable space for seven adults. Although a map was provided, it was a little tricky finding the place, and the check-in details were not very clear - it took us a while to find the unit number! Otherwise we received good communication from the manager and booking was easy. We would definitely consider staying again!
I was led to believe this would be a top notch place, but the reality was much less. The place was quite large and the location was as billed, but many little things, that would be so easy to correct, made the stay uncomfortable. the coffee maker and shower were dirty and moldy. The bedding (comforters) were visibly soiled and we didnt want to touch them let alone sleep under them. The cups were all chipped, the pans were all dirty and there were only stainless steel wine glasses. We could never use the dvd player and the tv and internet went out halfway through our stay. But it couldnt be easier to find the place and the parking was the best. It was walking distance to everything. We overall enjoyed our stay, but expected much more based on the price we payed. It would be so easy to maintain this place to a higher standard. We would have brought our own stuff if we knew the condition of some of the household items and would have been much more comfortable.
