About this listing
Completely remodeled as of Jan. 2016. We fell in love with Whistler and we wanted a place right next to the restaurants, shops, and lifts. We are located just across the street from the IGA Market, Olympic Plaza, and the Village Stroll.

Interaction with guests
I am a teacher, so it can be hard to reach me on the weekdays from 8:30AM to 3:30PM. It is best to email me with your dates. You can also call me after school hours or on the weekends. (Pacific standard time. Los Angeles, California)
We are just across the street from the Village. It is a 1-2 minute walk to the IGA Market, Starbucks, Horten's, shops, restaurants, Olympic Plaza/Children's play area, and a 7-10 minute walk to the lifts. There is a free winter bus shuttle (Bus #4: Runs approximately from Nov. 20- April 15) directly across the street that can take you to the lifts. It comes every 10 minutes and is the easiest way to get to and from the lifts. Our unit is at the Marketplace bus stop.)
The bus from Vancouver airport drops you off at the Tourist Information Center which is about a 7 minute walk from our place or about 300-400 meters. (You can pay an extra fee to the bus company to get drop off right at our unit, but it is only worth it if you have a lot of luggage.)
There is also whistler It is a smaller bus that will drop off/pick up directly in front of our complex. It, however, does not have wifi and is not as nice of a ride as the airport bus, but it guarantees that you have to wait no more than 1 hour after your plane arrival. (The airport bus leaves on a set schedule every 3 hours.)
Once you are in the village, you do not need a car. Whistler is a very walkable town and there are buses that can take you around the area. There is also a taxi service.
