We booked a condo online through Resort Quest Whistler. We shopped the list and picked a room close Whistler Town site but not knowing the area, we just picked one that we could use as a base to explore and look around at other condos for rent.
We had a one bedroom unit in the Northern (?) that was across the street from the IGA. This unit is on the ground floor so no view BUT it was in beautiful condition and had a gas fireplace and jacuzzi tub. parking was included and is very close to the condo. There was dinnerware for at least 16 people (I don't know where you would put them all!).
The unit itself had a very comfortable queen bed in the bedroom and a fold out in the living room, the galley kitchen is great with all mod cons (we couldn't find the electric kettle for our tea though).
The unit is very very clean and modern. I believe it has been owned by the same people for a number of years. (We forgot to fill in the guest book so I hope they see this.)
We want to go back in the fall and we will ask for this unit again. (#86).
Check-in was at the Aspen which is a bit of a drive away but the folks running the desk were friendly and recommended a few places for us to eat at and things to do.
The daily rate was cheaper than a hotel and we had much more room.
