The unit faces the trees and was quiet. The updates were good. Everything was clean and our stay was very enjoyable. My only comment is that the coffee maker pot is too small..... We will book again.View Full Review

Beautiful modern condo with great proximity to town. It was an easy walk for dinner or activities. Owners are very quick to respond to any questions. This would be a fantastic location for winter skiing. It's a true ski in/ski out Condo. The development needs to spend a bit more time on the maintenance and cleanliness of the pool but I wouldn't let that deter you from staying here.View Full Review

Great Condo in Whistler
Randy from Delta, Canada
Date: Jul-24-2015 for a stay in Jul 2015
Family of four; with the two teenagers, we got the king bedroom, and the kids got the pull out in the living room. While it is warm in Whistler during the summer; with no air conditioner, this unit provided fans, and leaving the screen door open made it cool for all concerned. This is a very nice condo, well decorated and has everything you need. Very clean, and easy to access, we hope to be back for a return visit soon. Kids loved the free Wifi, and the pool and hottubs. I liked the easy access to hiking or the the mountain.View Full Review

Good location for Blackcomb, just a 1 bedroom but very clean.
D P from Sun City West, Arizona
This condo is only a 1 bedroom not a 2 bedroom as it is listed but the hide-a-bed is comfortable. Also check with the owners on the price because the price was a little different than listed. The location was good, just a short walk down the hill to the upper village. The view from the deck was just a treed area. The condo was well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is small so it would work for a small family or very good friends.
Great Condo for Family; Teenagers or Kids
RandyVantastic from Las Vegas, Nevada
The Aspen Blackcomb Lodge unit was recently updated. It is well appointed and has everything you need for staying in and relaxing on a getaway. Pool and Hot Tub are great, as is the free Wifi. Teenagers enjoyed their IPhones, and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. King room and a pull out in the living room for the kids. Highly recommend this unit owned by Jeff Barger.
Home away from home!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from
We stayed here for a week. What a wonderful place. Very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed our stay here so much we even looked at other properties available for sale!! As we stayed during the summer period we will most certainly return for winter. The ski in/out facility is a big plus. We saw plenty of black bears just out the back gate. The 10 min walk (if that) into town is good exercise. It is out of the hustle and bustle but we liked that. Plenty of places to eat and the Sunday markets have delicious tarts/pies. Lovely fresh berries. Delightful! Highly recommend!!

Close to town centre,chair lifts, shopping,trails, parks...all within walking distance. We enjoyed our summer stay and felt very comfortable here. Pool towels and fob available at front desk. Garbage and recycling at the front door...separate room. Parking is available for a fee.

This place was perfect for our long weekend getaway. It was our anniversary and first time in Whistler. Very nicely furnished and very clean! Bed was comfortable. I still can't believe how reasonable it was to stay here. We enjoyed the hot tub. A way better deal than any hotel! We parked on the street for free and took the free shuttle to the village. My only recommendation would be another fan or air conditioning unit. Fortunately, it was in the 70's during our stay and just enough breeze at night if the windows were open. Owners were very nice and made it a breeze to check in.
Unit 313-The aspens, Whistler
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Coquitlam
Our family enjoyed a very nice stay in unit 313 at the aspens in Whistler. The proximity to the slopes (a 3 minute walk took you to the slopes just next to the Wizard Express lift) and the 7-10 minute walk to the Village was handy. The condo had most everything for self-catering that our small family of 3 needed during the Easter weekend. It was clean and very comfortable. Added touches (such as the retractable drawstring line in the bathroom to hang wet swimsuits to dry, and free wireless) were appreciated. We enjoyed the on-site hot tubs après-ski. If there were any suggestions to improve the satisfaction for the next visitors, it would include extra holders/hooks to dry bath towels (there was only one hook in the bathroom) and extra dish cloths in the kitchen. The prior emailed instructions helped us keep organized. They, however, could have included how to access the outdoor hot-tub/pool area and where the garbage bins are located: a key fob allowing access to the hot tubs along with pool towels can be obtained from the front desk and the garbage bin room is located outside and to the right of the front lobby doors.
Fabulous Weekend Getaway
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver BC
What can I say, I return to the aspens over and over and this is my third stay in this unit and it is fabulous. On the backside of the complex it faces on a forest wonderland teeming with wildlife (some human from time to time) but the perfect mix of being close and yet private. The unit has all the amenities and is beautifully organized and clean. As usual the ski valets assisted and made my stay extra easy. Unfortunately the good feeling was marred by the elevator breaking down on Sunday morning at checkout. My sister and I are lucky enough to be able to haul everything down the stairs but it was painful after 2 days of skiing. May I suggest you get your luggage down to the car before 9 to avoid this problem. Otherwise it was a wonderful time for all!!!
Nice comfortable aspens condo away from the hot tub noise
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Montreal
This condo is comfortable clean and quiet. The appliances are a bit dated especially the microwave that works but is very old. Otherwise it is well equipped. Master bedroom bed is very comfortable.
Rufus and Adina from BC
The lock to the suite did not work when we arrived but a quick response from Jeff and a locksmith solved the problem. Ventilation was inadequate - a new fan would solve the problem. We noted a hint of a scent coming from either laundry or deodorizer that bothered particularly my wife. Overall we were delighted with the facility, the location, and the services. We would definitely consider coming to stay here again.
Modern, clean, comfortable, spacious
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Sammamish
We stayed here for 3 days in July 2013. We travel a lot and (being in our 50's) tend to be a bit more picky about our accommodation these days. The rental is a quite spacious one-bedroom ski rental. It looks as if it's been updated recently, and was very comfortable. One room has a sofa, chair, table for 4 and a full kitchen (with room for one person at a time :-). We loved the location, as it was a 10 minute walk from the village (Max), but enough out of the way so that it was quieter. The only reason we gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because there was no a/C, and so the windows were open at night and we could hear a (not too bad) hum from some machinery in the distance. I'm sure this wouldn't bother most people - we live in a very quiet area at home and are unusually sensitive to noise! The aspens charge for parking underneath, but in Summer you can park on the road a few hundred yards away for free. As everything is within walking distance, we just parked on the road! I would highly recommend the unit - we would definately go back there. The price (in the Summer) was great value, and all in all, it felt quite luxurious.
Very nice unit
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
Great convenient and quiet location, nicely designed and updated unit. Enjoyed our stay!
Great unit - but no wireless internet access.
LP from WA
Accommodations were decent, including ski in/out, heated pool and hot tubs. However, you advertised available Wifi which was misleading. There was a modem in the living room of the unit but no Ssid to connect our phones. Wifi was available in the lobby of the aspens or other units. Internet access was important to check messages, mountain forecasts, make reservations, etc. Having to go to the lobby to obtain internet access was an inconvenience.
It was great!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
Thank you so much for the use of your place. We loved the ski in ski out and of course the hot tub at the end of the day. We would definitely book with you again.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Seattle
Nice condo unit. Comfy and easy to use. Nice marble counters! The aspens really has a nice setup, too - perfect Blackcomb slopeside location complete with the ski valet, the lobby great room, the pool, the hot tubs and a mini exercise room.
Great Weekend Getaway!
LMac from BC Canada
We've been to Whistler numerous times and love the aspens! You can't go wrong with this lovely condo!
Mattias from Wa
The condo was perfect for my wife and I and our two tots. The location is primo! We parked the car and didn't move it for 3 days. It was an easy walk to the village, and the ski in/ski out was super convenient. It was also the least expensive place we found!
Oakville meets Whistler
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Oakville
Everything was excellent. The location and ski in ski out is tough to beat... the snow was fabulous that the chalet was great. Hope to return soon. Ed
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Portland OR
This is probably the best location I have stayed at in Whistler! Really close to the slope, and a short walk to Blackcomb base and about a 10 minute walk to Whistler village! From the unit to being on the slope is about 5 minutes! This took so much stress out of our mornings! The only negatives were a lack of a washer/dryer in the unit, and that parking is an additional fee.
