Welcome and thank-you for considering our property.   Imagine cozying up in front of the fire place in this condo while the snow is falling outside!

Please note that from April 20 for 12 weeks, our condo property is being re-roofed.  This work is supposed to take place during the day, but is weather dependent.  Please email me if you would like more information.

Our condo features:

- 3 bedrooms which sleep 8 people and 2.5 bathrooms

- spacious layout over 1600 square feet

- Douglas fir hardwood floors and beamed ceilings

There is so much to do in Whistler and our condo is in an ideal location in winter and summer. If you are here to ski, there is a free shuttle that takes you to the lifts, the Upper Village and Whistler Village in 5-10 minutes. There is also a ski home trail from Blackcomb called the "Home Run" trail. If you feel like cross country skiing were right on the Valley Trail and Lost Lake Trail system. In the summer we are a 5 minute walk to the clubhouse of the Chateau Whistler Golf Course. And better still, were a 5 minute walk to Lost Lake, for swimming, walking, cycling and sunbathing.

Local Tips

Focus on Blackcomb Mountain

Best photo op The top of Seventh Heaven
My favorite day lodge, and why! Glacier Creek Lodge because there is better selection in food
Tips for quick and easy access to lifts in the AM Its quicker to get up the mountain from Blackcomb. If you want to ski Whistler, take the Peak to Peak.
What I don't like about Blackcomb Not a lot!
What I like the most about Blackcomb Seventh Heaven

Focus on Whistler Mountain

Best lunch strategy We usually find a seat first and then get lunch. The food on the mountain is great - noodle bowls, soup, chilli.
Best photo op Whistler Peak from the Backside
Best place to park Creekside
Best ways to meet up with friends The light boards outside the Roundhouse
What I don't like about Whistler Mtn. The runs down to Creekside tend to get icy

Food and Beverage

Best burgers Spitz Grill
Best place for breakfast/brunch Wildwood at the Whistler Tennis Club
Favorite place for drinks and appetizers Mallard Lounge, Fairmont Chateau Whistler
Favorite up-scale restaurant Araxi

Just for Kids!

Best rainy day kids activities Skating in the village in the winter or Meadowood Rec Center for swimming is the best option.
Cool playgrounds Meadowood Park (just behind the rec center)
Great kids activities In winter, there's skiing, tube park or snowshoeing. In the summer, rent bikes and hit the trails. If you have a car, drive to North Arm Farm in Pemberton and pick your own berries. Or drive to Rainbow Park
Recommended kids clothing Full ski gear in winter and hand warmers. Rain jackets, sun hats, clothes that you can layer in the summer.
Recommended kids programs I prefer the kids ski programs at Blackcomb, because the ski school is right at the base of the mountain. Whistler is much busier.
Tips for dropping kids off at programs If your doing weekly ski school (adventure camp), Monday morning is manic. Book the ski school in advance and try and pick your tickets/tags up the day before.
What kids should bring Handwarmers are a good idea.

On a Personal Note

Our favourite season in Whistler and why. We love the summer because the hiking is so good. When the sun is out, Lost Lake Park is lots of fun.
What makes Whistler so special and unique? Its a beautiful spot in any season.

About Us

Our kids just outside the front door. Our kids just outside the front door.
Were a family of four who decided to buy a place where we like to vacation! We love our place because its spacious and has a great layout, and we hope you enjoy it too. Its a great location for kids because of the access to the Lost Lake Trail.

summer stay

Natalie from Winfield, Canada
Date: Aug-29-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

Wonderful, spacious town house. Very nice and clean. Stayed cool on hot summer days. Quiet location. Little further from Village, but still ok to walk. Great to have garage for bikes. Spacious entry way and laundry room for gear. Fantastic location for cross country bikers.

Very comfortable family break at a great location

Roland from Singapore, Singapore
Date: Jul-20-2016 for a stay in Jul 2016

This home was perfect for our family with plenty of space in the unit to relax and enjoy our break. The location could hardly be any closer to the Lost Lake Park Trails and is right next to the Valley Trail so perfect for hiking or cycling in the summer months.

The kitchen was well equipped which is important for us as we self cater during our breaks.The unit was well equipped throughout with plenty of good quality towels and linen. The hosts have made a lot of effort to share and enjoy their home in comfort with the bonus of a good supply of board games !

Overall a great stay for our family at this comfortable home, wish we could have stayed longer.

Stephanie was a pleasure to communicate with. The unit was better then pictured. We have stayed here multiple times and would recommend it. We like the spaciousness, the privacy, and quiet location. The books and games were an added bonus. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Girls Weekend Getaway

Jennifer from Calgary, Canada
Date: Jan-23-2016 for a stay in Jan 2016

Great property with a super convenient shuttle to the main village and far enough away that it was super quiet at night. The owner was great to deal with and responded quickly to our emails usually by the following day. Would definitely stay here again!

Summer MTB stay

Taro from Honolulu, United States
Date: Sep-19-2015 for a stay in Sep 2015

Great place for our summer stay, Lost Lake trails right nearby.

Spacious, floor layout is nice. Private garage is great feature. Facilities in good shape.

We did have an odd partial power outage.

Only criticism would be, look out for the glass smooth spot on the wood flooring right by the kitchen area, and the master bedroom TV cable didn't work and placed where the bed foot board thing gets in the way.

No matter, I didn't watch TV anyway, that's not what we were there for!

Loved Our Stay!

Sandra from Egmont, Canada
Date: Jul-22-2015 for a stay in Jul 2015

The home & property were exactly as depicted on the website listing - no nasty surprises! Loved the forested setting, peace & quiet. Quick proximity to Lost Lake, trails and the village.

Very well equipped home with great ambience. 3 bdrm/2.5 baths allowed for us not be on top of each other as a family....or fighting over bathrooms! Would stay here again for sure!

Great place

Joanne from Bellevue, United States
Date: Dec-06-2014 for a stay in Nov 2014

This place had an excellent layout and was very comfortable for the six of us. Love the heated floors!

We had a couple of very small issues. The toilet roll holder in the ensuite was broken and we couldn't get the cable TV working (it was working on the first day but after a power outage we couldn't get it working again), however this was not too much of a problem as there was a good selection of DVD's to watch. These two very small things certainly did not affect our stay.

I would definitely recommend staying at this property and would stay here again.

Whistler October stay

Julie from Seattle, United States
Date: Oct-12-2014 for a stay in Oct 2014

The place was very comfortable for three families! We enjoyed our stay. Only odd thing was the lack of extra light bulbs - there were about 3 burned out bulbs and we couldn't find any replacements.
