We stayed here from 5th to 16th December 2017 in rooms 91 and 91a. I'd highly recommend staying here! The accommodation was clean and well maintained, had everything you could need to cook a decent meal for multiple people, beds were comfortable and the hot tub was excellent too! I'd also like to recommend booking through Allseason Vacation Rentals (We booked through Booking.com) as the units are owned by various different companies. Trevor at Allseason was excellent before and during our visit, giving us all the info we could possibly need and allowed us to check-in slightly early so we could leave our luggage and also leave our luggage in the apartment before leaving (as we left Whistler around 2pm). He was excellent and couldn't have been more helpful! The apartment is just across the road from the Marketplace supermarket, which has everything you could possibly need. It's around a 10-15 minute walk to the gondolas/lifts at the base of Whistler and around the same time to Blackcomb village base. The walk from the apartment to Whistler base was lovely as you pass through the whole village stroll start to finish, including the Olympic Medals Plaza. 10/10 would highly recommend a stay here!
Some positives for this place. It was clean for the most part (there was a stain on a pillow case but as we weren't going to use it we didn't complain). It is in a relatively convenient location as the free marketplace shuttle has a stop just across the street and it is close to the small supermarket. It also isn't too far away from the main village and is within walking distance to all of this plus close enough to Nesters as well if you want to try a different supermarket. Ok so now the not so positives. Yes it is nice that you have a private hot tub, problem is at our unit (27), it's not very private. This is a ground floor unit and there is a walkway very close to the tub. Would be easily sorted if the owners would put in some privacy screens. The 'all year' pool is a joke, was not warm enough for my 6 month old to be in and there were no changing facilities at the pool so I had to walk out in the freezing cold with my soaking son to get him back to our unit and into the warm as quickly as possible. The unit itself was just ok, like I said was clean enough but there is no extractor fan in the kitchen which is a definite drawback and the gas fire also didn't work. There was very little provided in the way of toiletries so you really needed to bring your own. I'm also pretty sure that there was supposed to be a linens and towel change after 7 days but this didn't happen either. Unit was extremely noisy, could hear everything from the unit upstairs, made a complaint about the noise after having suffered for 2 previous nights but it didn't do much, contacted the security company that we had been given the number for and they said they didn't deal with here anymore as they hadn't paid their bills. When I said this to the girl that showed us the unit she said she knew nothing about it but later gave me the non emergency number for the police instead. Unfortunately it was Martin Luther King weekend and apparently the vast majority of the American kids that were up for the weekend were just there to get wasted so we had 3 nights of terrible noise at all hours of the morning. Not great when you have a 6month old with you. To top all this off our shuttle back to the airport was at 12, checkout at the unit was at 10 and to our dismay, there is no where to leave bags for a few hours after your checkout. Not convenient when there are 4 adults and one child, ended up having to carry all our luggage to Tim Hortons to sit there until the shuttle arrived. If you still feel like staying here after reading this then to end on a positive, the girl that showed us the unit, Sarah, was absolutely lovely and very easy to deal with.
We rented unit 34, a well-situated, two bedroom condo on a front corner of the complex. This was a return visit for us, having stayed in the complex about 10 years ago, when it was newer and fresher. Unit 34 has an ample supply of cooking utensils, and a working hot tub on a private deck. The walls and paint were in excellent condition, and the apartment was very clean. The location is good, with the marketplace shops and shuttle bus pick up point just across the street. It was about a 20 minute door to door commute to the Whistler gondola. On the disappointing side, the apartment was dated and the furniture was dowdy, well worn, and in some cases not very functional. Only one side of the toaster worked fully. There was not enough seating in the living room to accommodate four people in soft chairs. The second bedroom was extremely cramped, and there was virtually no storage space in that area as all was taken by extra bedding for the LR sofa bed and duplicate appliances to serve the bedroom in the event it was configured as a separate rental space. We lived out of baggage placed on the floor, stepping over them throughout the visit. Hangar space in the second bedroom was very tight. In addition, paper goods and other supplies in the apartment upon arrival were very basic, with no paper towels, no laundry detergent, and only a single roll of toilet paper per bathroom. There were virtually no instructions in the apartment for anything, not even a list of cable TV channels. The rental office was located about seven minutes walking distance away, requiring an extra trip upon check-in as well as departure. The rental office staff was efficient and friendly. Although the apartment was minimally equipped and dated, the reasonable rental price likely reflected that fact. My wife commented that she used the money we saved in rental to pay for our ski lessons so in the end as long as tenants are willing to sacrifice some of the amenities, there may be other ways to better use the money.
We stayed here on our first ski trip to Whistler with 3 young children. We found our apartment comfortable, with a lay out that suited our young family very well. Wifi was unlimited and of a consistently high speed. Location was excellent, with frequent and free shuttle buses to the Whistler ski fields only a short walk across the road. Whistler village is also close by, with supermarket, liquor store, lots of shops and amenities across the road. The only downside for us was the absence of a cot or fold-out bed for our 2 year old who had to sleep on a mattress on the floor. The supplied cot was actually the size of a newborn bassinet! All in all - we were very happy and would probably come back here again.
These accommodations are perfect for a family who loves to be in the outdoors! Just outside village makes them quiet for nighttime but close enough to walk over to the village for dinner or shopping or to take advantage of the nightlife. Hot tub on the deck makes for a great way to wind down after skiing! Bus stop right in front takes you to the black come and whistler gondolas! Great place to stay!
We arrived to our condo in the most beautiful setting, parking was on spot and convenient. The gardens and outdoor pool are awesome. It was closed in March during our stay which didn’t affect our stay. We were a walk across the street into the village. Perfect location. We had rented a two bedroom which was very generous in size and rooms were located at opposite ends of the condo which is nice for parents and kids to have a little space and quiet time. We had a hot tub right on our deck which was the best way to end the day. In suite laundry was awesome for our week stay with kids. We had friends stay in the same building and condo was so generous in size we could all get together in our condo for games and meals etc. The kitchen was perfect. We bought our groceries right across the way and cooked and barbecued a lot. This is the perfect place for a family to stay. We have stayed at many places but this is one of the top in whistler for sure. The rooms are very,very tidy and housekeeping was more than accommodating and so kind. The rooms are very well decorated and make you feel at home. The rooms had anything we needed as far as utensils, kitchen equipment, towels etc We highly recommend Glaciers All season Rentals for Couples or families.
This is the third time staying at this property. The owners of the condo are great to deal with, answering any questions you may have. The condo is clean, has a full kitchen, sleeps 4 comfortably, has two outside patio decks, and I can't say enough about the private hot tub off the bedroom. Was amazing sitting in there every night after the cold day strolling Whistler or after dinner in the village. Was also nice to unwind after the hot tub and watch some shows on Netflix which is included for free. Parking is also included with this rental. The location of the condo complex is right opposite to the IGA, liquor store, Rexall drug store, Starbucks, McDonalds...so basically anything you would need, and it is the beginning of the stroll right into the centre of Whistler village. The Olympic rings are a 3 minute walk from the condo. You couldn't ask for a better location. Like I mentioned, this is our 3rd stay here, and there will be many more. The owners of this particular condo in this complex are on vrbo (567517 and 659691) or you can find them at whistlerescape.com. Trust me...you will not be sorry to rent this condo.
First time staying here and were quite pleased with the accommodations. Definitely liked having the hot tub on the second floor balcony instead of the main floor like some of the other units. The unit was quite spacious for the five of us. Having two bathrooms and bedrooms were a bonus. Would definitely return.
My partner and I booked a one bedroom unit for Labour Day weekend. It's by no means fancy, with no room service and housekeeping being an extra charge, but fancy wasn't our goal. Glacier's Reach is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the shops and restaurants, yet within walking distance of IGA and the liquor store. We like to cook and were there to relax for our two nights and escape from Vancouver so this was perfect for us! The apartment unit was ground level and had a very well-equipped kitchen (lots of plates and utensils, salt/pepper, coffee maker, dishwasher, etc.), a bathtub with a Jacuzzi, a bedroom with an air conditioner and doors leading to a porch, speakers, and a washer and dryer for longer stays. There was also a communal pool but we didn't use it; it's mainly for kids since it's fairly shallow. The unit was clean except for some dust and a spiderweb or two hidden in some corners, but to us that was minor compared to all the pros. The staff at the front desk, which is about a ten minute walk away, were pleasant and concise. We would definitely stay with Whistler Premier again and would without a doubt recommend them to our friends!
We stayed early August at Glaciers Reach. The condo was on the first floor was in a quiet location (except for the construction on the baloney above). But we were not there for most of the day so the noise was not all that bothersome. The beds were comfortable and the place was well equipped. The only drawback was that the place was dark and always have to have lights on to see anything. The 'loading' zone is a tight squeeze and best to use the street. Parking is underground and that is where we left the car for our whole stay. Location was at the outer edge of Whistler Village but that was not an issue as it is such a short walk to it. Close to biking trails and walking trails.
