Really excellent house. Sadly only 3 of us not 5 as 2 had Covid, but the 3 of us were very comfortable. Shame about the bus strike, but not in your control. Thanks: we had a great trip.

Alanah from Vancouver, Canada

Excellent and comfortable stay. We were 4 adults, 2 teens. Directions and check in were easy. Parking for 2 vehicles. The accommodation felt spacious and having the recessed hot tub right out the sliding door and into the garden space (facing the common green space) was so convenient and private. The location is such that it's a *bit* far to walk to the village lifts in ski boots (we did it 1 day) but felt too close to drive/park in the pay lot (which we did as well). I've always enjoyed this development and the hosts provided everything we needed. Thanks! Will be back!

Probably my favourite unit so far in Montebello. We love the complex. Great location, fabulous layout with private hot tub. Built with quality in mind.

With this unit in particular, I so much appreciated the extras - Owners provided prompt responses to requests/questions, loved to robes, games and quality shampoo/soaps.

The beds, pillows and comforters made for a blissful sleep.

Denby dishware was a lovely surprises - meant our mugs and dishes were hot/warm :)

Great Value!!!! Thanks for making our stay so special

We can't wait until our next visit.

Such a great property, love the layout and it was a very nice home away from home for a couple days. Already booked another weekend next year looking forward to it. The owners are so responsive to all the questions I had and such a pleasure to deal with. And compared to other units in Montebello, the value here cannot be beat. Thank you!

This was a terrific place for our family of 6 adults to enjoy some time together. Spacious, well furnished, chef's kitchen with plenty of dishes & cooking equipment, big dining table with lots of chairs. Loved the open plan of the main floor, and it was bright with the wall of windows. Beds and pillows were very comfy. The private hot tub got lots of use after hiking & biking. Location is relatively quiet - much better than staying right in the village. Short walk to the grocery & wine stores in Marketplace. Would definitely stay here again.

Our (shortened) Ski holiday in Whistler

Lee from Leicester, United Kingdom
Date: Mar-27-2020 for a stay in Mar 2020

Fantastic accommodation in a great location - unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the mountain was closed 3 days into our 10 day break and we had to return home early so our review is a little shorter than planned. However, we were able to make use of the house and the hot tub whilst we were there and cannot recommend highly enough.

Also, the response from alluraDirect and Elise (the owner) in light of the COVID-19 event has been tremendous with relevant refunds being arranged without fuss. I recommend the accommodation and alluraDirect without hesitation.

Overall Good Condo

Fredric from Redmond, United States
Date: Mar-04-2020 for a stay in Feb 2020

This condo was overall excellent for a large group of people, but there was one niggle that kept it from being 5 stars: the hot water is not capable of keeping up with a group of 7 coming back from skiing and all wanting to take a shower. By the 5th shower the water was tepid at best, and by the 7th it was cold.

Elise, we really enjoyed our stay. Your town home is very roomy, comfortable, and clean. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We took the transit bus to and from slopes which was very convenient when you are carrying your skies! The rest of the time we walked to the village and back, and enjoyed our walks a lot. Thank you again :)

Perfect family Christmas condo

kim from Caringbah, Australia
Date: Jan-17-2020 for a stay in Dec 2019

A fabulous condo for a family Christmas. Great entry for taking off and storing ski gear. 3 full bathrooms, easy access for 6 adults. All rooms were well furnished with comfortable high quality bedding and lounges. Heating was toasty warm. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to prepare and serve a full Christmas lunch with all the trimmings.

The private spa was wonderful, sparkling clean and perfect temperature to relax in after returning from the slopes. We used it every day. Easy access to supermarket and village in walking boots. We opted for a bus or car when wearing our ski boots and carrying our gear. The snowboarders walked, no problem.

Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others.

Thank you Elise and Dave. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your townhome. Everything was great including the hot tub. The views of Blackcomb and Whistler were awesome. The layout of the townhouse worked well for our group.

The location to the village and to the wedding we attended at the Nicklaus North Golf Course was very convenient. We would not hesitate to book with you again.

Perfect family rental home close to village.

Julie from Richmond, Canada
Date: Jan-14-2019 for a stay in Jan 2019

Fabulous rental - we would not hesitate to rent this home again. We stayed 3 nights January 3-6, 2019, with our 3 grown kids and son's wife. Fabulous layout with beautiful, spacious open living space down, three large bedrooms upstairs with comfy beds plus lots of storage and a flatscreen in each room, and bonus 2 bathrooms up and 1 down all with showers!

The great thing was we didn't feel like we were on top of one another like you do in most other one-level condos - this was probably double the size for a bit more money and no resort/parking/cleaning fees tacked on - well worth it!

Enjoyed the large kitchen table for playing board games, well stocked kitchen with modern appliances, cozy fireplace and private outdoor hot tub which was enjoyed after each day on the slopes. Attached garage was great to store gear and easily fit our Ram truck plus parking on driveway and additional guest parking if needed.

Can't think of one negative - we had such a fun time. Thank you Elise & Dave for making your home available to us - hope to be back!

Our second winter vacation in the development and it provides lots of space and a great location for a family. Easy walking access to IGA for groceries and an easy walk into the village. If youâ??re having a day on the mountain it would be too far to walk with your equipment though.

The home provided everything we needed and lots of space for our three kids. We would definitely return when next in Whistler.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It was well appointed and felt like home during our stay. Excellent layout and location.

Beautiful place. Everything is well maintained and new. We had plenty of extra towels and robes to use and the ease of check-in is amazing!!!! We never reached out to the owners cause we had no issues with our stay. The place is a little far from the lifts, but definitely walkable to the village or to a lot that has a shuttle to the lifts. We enjoyed our stay so much and will definitely be booking again.

Tracy from Tualatin, United States
Date: Sep-07-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

We have had the opportunity over last several years to stay in many vacation rentals throughout North America and Europe. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this home to my friends and family.

The pictures are accurate but in fact do not do it justice. The layout is great, and it was spacious. The bedrooms are all upstairs which is nice. The kitchen is equipped for any cooking you want to do. Well quipped in regards to all the necessary supplies, such as Laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper etc.

Location is great. 5 min walk to the grocery store and liquor store. Not right on the strip of the village, which means there isn't the night time noise. Wonderful to have the large lawn in front. We had room to set up both a croquet set and a badminton net. Kids loved it.

I have no hesitations on recommending the place to others. We will be back next time we get to Whistler. Thanks.
