CityWood in The Gables is considered the Best Whistler Village Rental location for good reason, this village central property is bordered on one side by the glacier-fed Fitzsimmons Creek and treed parkland.

The new 10 person Blackcomb Gondola is a flat 100-meter walk in one direction, Whistler Gondola a 250m walk in the direction. All in all there is not a better Whistler village location to make your home base. Park your vehicle and leave it. Did I mention the parking is free:) Fully renovated, CityWood is designed and outfitted to comfortably accommodate up to 6 people in 3 bedrooms on 3 queen size beds +plus there is a super comfortable queen pullout sofa bed in the living room.

During your stay
We interact with our guests as much or as little as our guests prefer. We live full time in Whistler and are active in and around the community. We are always happy to offer helpful tips and guidance especially with respect to local activities such as hiking, biking and skiing as well as dining and shopping. We often accompany guests on hiking, biking and ski tours to show them some of our favourite spots and can help out with the odd piece of equipment if they forget something.
To make the guest experience as autonomous as possible we have equipped our property with a keypad access control system and each guest is emailed property information that includes a unique access code for their stay; The unique access code provides guests with keyless access to the property and eliminates the stress and challenge of trying to schedule a specific arrival time to exchange keys etc...

We do however try to make ourselves as accessible as possible throughout our guests stay in order to provide assistance if and when required.
