This place was great! A true relaxing vacation with everything being so easy. The ski in ski out is super convenient. Ski right off the run down a level path to the door. Put your skis in your private 2 car garage walk in from the garage and hang up all your stuff at the bottom of the stairs where it quickly dries and head upstairs to a very well stocked beautiful condo. Lots of seating for eating. Steam shower and hot tub were great. Would definately rent again.

We had a great stay at this property. We were only a party of 4 but it can easily accommodate 8. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need to cook, the hot tub was great, and the home is very comfortable.

The location on the runs is perfect - a short 50m walk and you are on your way. The heated garage is nice to keep ski boots warm and play ping pong, and the garage roof height was even high enough to fit my SUV with a very large roof box.

We would defiantly recommend this property if you are heading to Big White!

We loved our week in Big White, the unit was very spacious, well equipped and in a great ski in ski out location. The hot tub was a favourite with everyone after skiing. We would love to stay in your unit again in the future. Thanks again Jeanette for your assistance with our checkout request.

Wonderful Family Vacation at the Aspens...

Heather from Surrey, Canada
Date: Feb-20-2016 for a stay in Feb 2016

What a wonderful, beautiful home you have in Big White! Actually would like to rate everything 4.5 stars....

Our vacation was terrific from start to finish....the unit was clean, exactly as promised (and more) as well as superbly stocked. Your ski in/out location cannot be beat and the option of walking or resort shuttle to the village was great. Our first day of skiing was Tuesday....fresh snow and sunshine. Wednesday and Thursday were a little foggy, but the snow was great as usual for Big White.

It was a pleasure booking with you, and we will definitely be back to visit Aspen's - we need a few friends to join us! Until next time...Heather, Emile, Emily & Cameron

Great place to stay!!!!

Tricia from Abbotsford, Canada
Date: Mar-10-2015 for a stay in Mar 2015

Overall this place was great! There are a few things that need to be fixed but that's just up keep. The toilet paper holders are quite loose and felt like we were going to pull them off. The tv in the queen size room downstairs kept freezing, although it wasn't a big problem cuz we just went to sleep instead! The dvd player was having issues in the room with the bunk also kept freezing. We decided to try guitar hero on the Wii downstairs but after an hour we gave up...we could get the game to play but no sound would come out and we even read the directions and everything...that was weird and frusturating but no matter.

The hot tub had some pieces from the jets sitting at the bottom of the tub but we just put them on the side and the tub still sounded fine and worked fine so I'm sure maintenance will fix that. The bbq cooked very uneven but still worked so its all good. Little glitches here and there but loved it overall.

We definitely would stay again because in was a great ski in & out location! thanks so much... it's a beautiful place. P.S. We did our best to clean up and not leave a mess for the clean up crew but 15 minutes before our checkout my friend dropped the coffee pot when putting away the dishes-- please let me know if I need to replace this or what is needed.--- The Bridal Family (Abbotsford, B.C.)

Awesome Unit with Great Amenities

Jon from Honolulu, United States
Date: Feb-09-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

I've rented units for many years now across many ski resorts in the US and Canada and my friends and I agree that this is probably one of the top 2 units we've ever rented. Exceptional amenities such as a wine refrigerator but here's what really blew us away. You know how cold those bathroom floors can get especially in the winter? Well these floors are heated!! Awesome little extra. The kitchen was also well appointed and had enough gear for my varied cooking styles. The large two car garage was a nice plus and what was especially nice was having 4 bathrooms. The price was also very affordable considering that high quality unit it was. The only slight drawback was that garbage capacity was limited to the two bins in the garage which is enough if you're there for just a few days or don't cook much but we were there 6 days and cooked almost every day. There was a a note to take any overflow to the Aspens parking garage but we had no idea where that was or how to get in as they were all cypher locked. This was just a minor inconvenience though. I would highly recommend this unit to others.

Great Weekend

deanfromkelowna from Bc
Date: Feb-24-2014

Great kitchen layout and layout worked well for our two families. Unit is clean and it's nice having a double garage (which means you can't really play pingpong). Would stay there again if it had just one more room (rec room for kids).

Perfect for 2 families with kids

Date: Feb-28-2013

We had a wonderful time. The ski-in, ski-out options was very convenient, as was the shuttle when we did want to walk down to the village. The home was very clean and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again.

Great stay in a great vacation home

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Calgary

This was our 4th stay at aspens 4, and as always it was a real treat. The ski in/out access is second to none and the condo is spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Everything you need for a great vacation at one of the finest family ski resorts in the world!

Great family time at Big White!

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
Date: Jan-17-2013

The house was very clean and well equipped with many unexpected extras (e.g. tooth paste, makeup removal wipes, spice rack, cloth drying rack). It was super-convenient to leave all ski & snowboard equipment inside the attached heated garage which was code-accessed (no need too bring keys). It was toddler-friendly with provision of cot, highchair & plastic cups /bowls. Location was great for ski-in and ski-out, but it was a long walk down to Village Centre Mall. We did managed to catch the free village shuttle sometimes.

Fantastic Big White Location

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Toronto
Date: Jan-03-2013

The Thorsens' town house was spectacular. Everyone of the 4 bathrooms has a heated floor and the steam shower was great. Having a private hot tub and bbq is also a nice convenience. The kitchen was very well equiped and had tons of counter space. Best part is the proximity to the hill just 50 ft from your front door. Thanks Thorsens, we will be sure to come back.

Beautiful home with an excellent location for skiing.

Great comfortable home for two families, with a very well-stocked kitchen and nice furnishings. Table tennis in the heated garage was a great bonus. Location is excellent for getting on and off the mountain quickly.

Lovely house, well equipped and very cosy

A FlipKey verified reviewer from Brisbane
Date: Jan-25-2012

The house was well stocked and furnished. It was nice to arrive and have the fire place going after a very long flight from australia. Location was good once we got used to catching the bus. Maybe the book with the restaurants is a little outdated, but no problem. My only comment would be that the house needs a little better dust and vacuum and there a few light bulbs that need changing.

Home sweet home!

Westisbest from BC
Date: Jan-05-2012

This place truly has all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well stocked with every small or large appliance you need. Beds are comfy. Nice, big bathrooms. Great, well-maintained hot tub with a wonderful view. Housekeeping could use a little work: very dusty, and the rugs seemed like there had been pets prior to our stay. The kitchen faucet was broken which was incredibly annoying. The lefthand sink was leaking from the drain insert. Great ski in ski out, but a ways from the village. All in all, a wonderful place to stay. Would definitely stay there again!!

Loved this place had everything you need at your finger tips, the ski in/ski out was great just a 10 second walk from the door. What i loved the most is how I was able to find everything in the kitchen it was all organized so well and they didn't forget anything you needed a utensil or casserole dish they had it.We will be back again.
