Lodging suggestions for Whistler (multi-family)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Any personal experience with 2 & 3 bedroom condos for 4-5 families in the Whistler Blackcomb area would be greatly appreciated.
Prefer ski-in ski-out, and don't need to be in the center of the apres ski action.:

We had good luck with the Stoney Creek condos a few years back. Wasn't actually multi-family but was my wife and I plus my 2 then-teenaged kids. I think we had a 2-BR with somebody on the couch.

Nice location. You can walk to the main part of the village and the lifts in about 10 minutes, or there's a bus. You're right across the street from the Marketplace with the supermarket and some restaurants. It's in the "Village North" section (location #3 on the map that comes up at that link). Available through Whistler Central Reservations and probably some of the others. According to Whistler's website the units are managed by ResortQuest, Whistler Premier, or Whistler Retreats (since they're privately owned, it depends on which management company each owner uses).

I always have good luck finding a place for a reasonable price there.

Thank you! Maybe my post was mis-leading, I meant that we would need multiple condo's for multiple families !

There is a contingent that really want's ski-in ski-out, but that location sounds/looks pretty convenient.

I just booked three condos at Arrowhead Point on Blackcombe. I found them on www.alluradirect.com Best bet if you are looking for multiple units would be to find somebody with several units and look for a multi-unit discount. Worked for me, but we are not on a holiday week (Mid January)


I booked two of my three units from http://www.westwindproperties.ca/

I found them on allradirect first, but they also have their own website. Kim knocked 10% off the already discounted January rate because I took two units.

I have not been yet so cannot comment on units, but pics look good. Good ocation and very easy to deal with.

Alluradirect is totally the way to go, if other peoples' more direct recommendations don't pan out. Most owners follow the policy of not demanding full pay til 30 days prior; that could be a lifesaver if for some reason your schedules or capricious Nature interferes with your plans.

Even through Alluradirect you can often find multi-owned properties; there are a lot of people that are totally carrying units as investments. Backtrace which owners are multi unit owners by checking out their owner pages. However, in my experience, it's tended to be the multi owners that have the less well taken care of units. I've had the best luck renting from owners that fit profiles like: retired schoolteacher couple that lives in Prince Rupert, uses condo mainly in summer. More charm to the place if it's actually used in stretches by the owners.

Stoney Creek had good units. I've tended to go cheap and stay in the Marketplace vicinity, which Stoney Creek is more or less. Blackcomb side has more ski in ski out options for condos, but it can be a bit of a hassle to "ski out" to Whistler from there, and to get to the village for what apres ski you're interested in.

I have stayed at Stoney Creek, Northstar and Symphony. All are in the marketplace area, but not directly over shops. Beware that Marketplace lodge and several others are above bars/shops and can be noisy at night. I like Stoney Creek. It is convenient to the shops and to the shuttle and even walkable to the lifts, though I do hate to walk in those boots!! The condos at Stoney Creek are fairly spacious and very pleasant. You can probably find adjacent units there. Also, I believe that Delta Whistler has suites and is not far from the lifts either.

Condos on Blackcomb are good for ski-in and out, but are not that convenient to restaurants and shopping. Another option to consider is a house rental (log cabin homes at Nicklaus golf course) or other options. Those are further away from the ski area, and I am really not sure about the shuttle system in that area.

Thanks for the input, We have a couple of families that require 3 bedroom units. It seems to be a limiting factor, since we would all like to stay in close proximity to each other.

We've been pretty fortunate at Big Sky and others, in finding bigger condo units together.

I dunno, with the ElNino in the picture, maybe Whistler will have to wait till another day.:

Check out the Whistler website. They are getting dumped on this week. I think they have had 2-3 feet of snow during the week. It is the largest resort in N America, so I am positive they can accomodate your needs. Give the toll-free number a call and see what they say. You don't need to actually book with them, but they can tell you which places have larger condos.

Some of the biggest snowfalls in the PNW have been during el nino years. This last week for example over 150cm fell in the last 7 days alone with more on the way.

Check out Cedar Ridge Condos, skiin/skiout walk to village and some have private hottubs on the deck. Some are listed on VRBO.
