Vacation Rental Reviews by alluraDirect

Well equipped for a small family

Jacques from Toronto, Canada
Date: Apr-11-2017 for a stay in Mar 2017

Calum and Beverley are highly responsive and informative owners who work an ensuring a wonderful experience by their guests. Perfection Ridge is an excellent location and offers virtual ski in/ski out with an easy 2 minute walk. With both a covered car port and heated garage, equipment drying, storage & maintenance is a breeze.

Inside, guests find a well equipped kitchen, current technology Audio/Video equipment, well appointed bathrooms and little touches reflective of a well cared for home (like big fluffy towels for the private hot tub and comfy bathrobes). The regular, twice hourly bus service eliminates any concerns about the modest uphill trek to the main village when going out for restaurants and bars.

Dave from pitt meadows, Canada
Date: Feb-12-2017 for a stay in Feb 2017

We had an awesome week on the mountain. Fresh snow every day. The condo was great. The only thing for us was the distance from the village and gondola. We had children that we had to drive to Happy Valley a couple of times, and we also had them in the Ski School which was a little tricky getting the last ride on the chair at the end of the day to get back down the run to the condo. Otherwise, it was awesome for the adults to ski in and out at lunch and to get on the mountain quickly. Was a wonderful location if you just had adults. Thank you!!

Great family vacation home

Michelle from Surrey, Canada
Date: Mar-25-2016 for a stay in Mar 2016

We had a fabulous stay at this vacation home! Place was very roomy for the four of us and had everything we needed. It was clean, kitchen was well stocked, living room was comfortable, nice having a warm garage to store all of your equipment in, easy to ski in/out, the hot tub was great at the end of the end!

Owners were very quick to respond with answers to my questions. Would definitely recommend this home to friends and family and would love to come back if available for another stay! Just wished we would have stayed more than 4 nights!

Wonderful stay at Big White.

Jack from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Mar-23-2016 for a stay in Feb 2016

This was our second stay in this ski condo, and we hope it will not be the last. The unit is marvelous - very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The location is superb - true ski-in and ski-out, and also with very convenient access to the village. This is the kind of place that we could be happy living in, but failing that, it is a great place for a ski vacation.

Great place to stay in Big White- Great Value

Michelle from Sydney, Australia
Date: Jan-04-2016 for a stay in Dec 2015

I have just returned from 10 nights at Big White staying at the Smiths Ski Chalet. Booking direct with Beverley Smith was the best decision I made. Nothing was a problem and everything was just as described or in all cases even better! The house is fantastic with all the inclusions that you need on a ski holiday. Hot tub, heated floors, comfortable beds, plenty of storage, garage for skis etc 3 toilets 2 x bathrooms and lots of towels and robes! Big mention also goes to the WIFI...quick and available this made everyone happy!

The house is on Perfection run which is a blue run, an easy ski out and a bit more challenging skiing in for the beginners in our group, until we discovered the Mogul track which became the easy way to get home. (This was also free of moguls...thanks to the snow hosts who showed us this track) I would recommend this place as it was a fantastic home to spend xmas and new year with my family which included two adults and 2 older teenage children. We could walk to the village and if required the free shuttle stops right near the house. My stay could not have been better! Thanks again Beverley for your hospitality

Review of Property #857

Jack from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Mar-09-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015

The Smiths' townhouse is beautiful. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, which is important to us. It is nicely furnished, very spacious, and included all the amenities needed for a pleasant ski vacation. It is exactly the way it is described on the AlluraDirect website. The location is excellent; truly ski-in, ski-out, and an easy walk to the village. We will definitely try to book this unit on our next trip to Big White.

Beautiful end unit in a perfect location

Michael from Kelowna, Canada

very well appointed, beautiful home in a great location. We will absolutely try to rent here again. Our kids loved the ping pong table in the garage, the unit was very quiet as this is a end unit and there is only 5 of them. perfect ski in and ski out location.

True Perfection!

Carolyn from Seattle, United States
Date: Jan-25-2015 for a stay in Jan 2015

16-20 Jan 2015: Perfection was an AWESOME place to stay. It was comfortably appointed with small details like a big drying rack for wet ski gloves, nice serving ware, hot tub towels and sleds as well. We loved that it was truly a ski in/out place. It was about a 10 min. up hill walk or less to the village center. Unfortunately both ping-pong balls were cracked so we could not play....

It was overcast most days, especially in the higher elevations and we had a small bit of snow each day. Lift lines were non-existent and the runs were not crowded! We bought discounted Biggie Lift Cards at Costco before heading up to the mountain (two cards for CAD$32+tx) Most people we ran into were friendly and helpful & the skiers polite. All around it was a very nice short holiday and we hope to return...

Well equipped home and awesome location!

Stayed at the Smiths Ski Chalet for a week and had a wonderful stay. The home is well equipped and we never ran out of supplies. The beds were super comfy with cozy, warm duvets. The ping pong table was a big hit with our kids and had many competitive rounds in the heated garage. Audio system and large TV were awesome! Location is amazing...just down the driveway and you're on the hill. Without hesitation we would stay here again.

The Chalet was bright, clean, very well equipped, comfortable and close to the ski slopes. It snowed three of the four days we were there with over 2 ft of accumulation. The kids enjoyed the ping pong table. It was perfect for our family of four. The only downside was having to check out by 10am. We will be back to stay again.

Exceptional comfort and outstanding location!

Inaugural Family Day in BC

If your interested in first tracks,take a few steps and you are right on Perfection run; you are good to go! At the end of the day you can ski down Perfection, stop off at "Rachael's " for a beer and some live music. Rachael's is very close to home base, but far enough away that you have piece and quite. For those who love to relax after skiing all day, the private hot tub is great. The town house has lots of added extras, fantastic. You are also close enough to walk to some great restaurants in the evening, recommend the Lotus if you like Thai, and Carvers for Indian. Will book here again for sure.

The perfect place for us

We loved your home it had all the extra space which we thought was such a bonus. The 3 levels were great to be able to spread out. Our kids did enjoy the ping pong table. The location to the ski lifts made life easier no walking with skis. The hot tub was so enjoyable after skiing,we did have fresh powder to ski in for 2 days. Just one thing the lighting in the entrance way was poor as the bulbs have burnt out, also in the open garage area lights were out as well. Love the heated floors.

Exceptional Family Fun!

Hello, We had a wonderful time at your lovely place, thank you! It certainly had all the comforts of home and the location and amenities were excellent (this is our 8th year at Big White) so we have lots to compare it too! Thank you for the welcoming bottle of wine (nice touch!) I loved having a separate basement with full size laundry and drying racks and especially loved those heated floors! We had a great mix of spring sking and fresh powder - we skied 6 days and took a day off to ice climb, go tubing and go for a sleigh ride. Just a couple of notes for you: thought you should know the door was left open (ajar) when we arrived and there were no sheets for the pullout - we arrived after 1am so could not call housekeeping. My only recommendation would be to purchase a foam topper for the pullout (avail at Costco) it would appear the sofa is getting a lot of use and starting to show it. Thanks so much for a great holiday - we hope to be back! Regards, Judy and Egbert van Everdingen Kitchener, on

The Smiths chalet was excellent and contributed significantly to a wonderful holiday. It was well appointed in every way making us feel that we were at home while being on holiday, and far more relaxing than you get from an hotel experience. The The location was simply superb being very close to the Perfection run making ski in/out a dream.

Big White gave us a little of everything again this year - some blue bird days (awsome) and some heavy snow. As usual, the canadian hospitality was second to none. My daughter hurt her knee and couldn't get to the dogs for the ride so Jim who had taken us on a sleigh ride the previous day took us down there then took us back to the car so she didn't have to walk - excellent service :)we will definitely be back!!
