Editor's Analysis
Updated Apr 4, 2014
Overview
This property offers vacation rental townhouse units and is centrally located for skiers. Blackcomb lifts are about 3 minutes away on foot, while the Whistler lifts and gondolas are a 5-minute walk away.

These are individually owned units and the amenities and decor may differ in each unit. However, all units are smoke free and most include free Wi-Fi, a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, a living room with a TV and DVD player, a private balcony, a fireplace and a jetted tub. One- and two-bedroom units are available. These units are not wheelchair accessible. Pets are not permitted.

Other on-site amenities include free parking and ski and bike storage. These are self-catering accommodations and therefore daily housekeeping service is not provided. There is no on-site restaurant.

The Whistler Village is about 5 minutes away on foot and includes the Whistler Convention Centre, the Whistler Art Gallery, shopping, dining, nightlife, Olympic Plaza and the Whistler Golf Course and Driving Range. Access to the Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99) is about a 3-minute drive away, while the Whistler Airport (YWS) is 8 minutes away by car. (All driving time estimates: Google Maps)

Verified by a front desk agent on March 31, 2014: Free Wi-Fi, wheelchair accessibility and pet policy.
