Transportation to ski lifts and Whistler Village for restaurants, groceries, shopping, liquor store, pubs and nightclubs etc:
- 3 minute cab ride or drive
- Bus stop 1 block away
- 15 minute walk along lit pedestrian valley trail
*In the winter, you'll probably want to drive or take a cab to the lifts, as walking 1km in ski boots is no fun. During the summer and shoulder seasons, however, it's a really nice walk or short bike ride into the village.
What types of groups is the chalet best suited for?
- One to three families with children or teens (one crib and high chair available)
- Three to five couples
The cabin was built by my grandparents in 1972 and has been in the family ever since. It's currently used by 4 generations (including my 90yr grandmother) from time to time. A classic A-frame, it has really high ceilings, lots of natural light and the entire interior is cedar which gives it a cozy, durable mountain feel. While the outside of the house is looking a little tired, we've modernized the interior and invested a lot in good furniture, mattresses and carpets.
The whole house.
Other things to note
There is a self-contained one bedroom suite accessed along the side of the house with its own private entrance. There are no shared spaces, so you'll have no interactions with this full-time tenant.
However, lakeside deck is above the suite, and sound proofing is not ideal. Thus, activities on that deck need to be low-key and it should be used no later than 10pm.
Parking is available for up to 3 vehicles max.
Pets are not permitted.
We prefer to rent the cabin to families with children or teens, or to groups comprised of several couples. We do not rent to groups containing only young people under 25 (unless children or youth travelling with their parents).
Before you go, we love it if you strip all used beds and leave linens on the floor of the bedroom they belong to. Used towels can be left in the bathtub. Cleaning service is provided at the end of your trip and this helps them out.
While you're not expected to do a full clean before you depart, we expect the cabin to be left neat and tidy.
Towels and linens
Clean towels and linens are provided. Please use only what you need.
Soap, shampoo, hair dryer provided.
one high chair, one booster seat and one pack n play crib is provided.
Our cabin is non smoking. If you have smokers in your party they can smoke in the carport or on the deck, but please be careful about butting out and also about leaving cigarette butts and empty cigarette packs on the ground. Please put all garbage in garbage cans (once the butts are truly out).
We do not rent to parties that include pets, sorry we love dogs but the wear and tear on the cabin is too much for us to allow any pets during your stay. Below is a link to some kennels in the sea to sky corridor (website hidden)
There is parking for up to 3 cars, but as there is no on-street parking, there is no additional parking. We have a 1 bedroom full time rental suite under the West facing deck (they have a separate entrance and it's a completely separate unit) and the tenants use the carport spot on the far left of the carport when pulling into the driveway. You can park in the other two covered carport spots, and then squeeze one additional car in the driveway as long as it doesn't block the tenants access.
Hot tub use:
Please only one hot tub per day per person and none later than 10:30pm at night. And, we have a hot tub maintenance team who checks it twice a week. They have their own access code and will knock before entering.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
I have a few properties listed.
The one in Vancouver is home for my wife, five kids. We live pretty simply for a big family, and spend a lot of time at home as all of our kids are homeschooled, so while you'll find a well stocked kitchen, we don't have a television or central stereo unit.
The cabin at Whistler is my grandmothers. She and my late grandfather built it in 1972 and it's been in the family ever since. We've done several renovations over the years as our family has grown.
It's a classic A-frame cabin, with various extensions off of it. It has massive decks, which we pretty much live on in the summertime, and loads of natural lights through large windows and french doors. The inside is all cedar, so it has a very cozy mountain feel to it.
We're up there a few times a month all year round, and it's also used by my uncles and cousins, and my 93 year old grandmother too from time to time. Most of us live an hour and a half away in Vancouver.
We used to ski loads, and while we still get up the hill a fair bit, Whistler is a brilliant retreat for us. We often go up on rainy weekends and just chill in the house with the kids, or go for short hikes or bike rides through the woods.
