“Not bad, but distant”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

hmm, the best part of the stay was short notice availibility as well, the reasonable price. However, the "reasonable price" was for a reason...everything was extra (a bit TOO extra for my liking). The hot tub was extra (250.00$ but I was offered half price as to split the cost and share our hot tub with other guest). Wifi and cable were extra (100$), I didnt get cable or wifi as it should have been included so we all tethered a cell phone..it worked. I did receive great response from the owner if I had questions or needed anything but no personal greetings. I offered a thank you text message after leaving, explaining what Ive done (cleaning etc.) but havent received a response or a thank you for staying (call me "old fashion" lol). It was quite distant from Kelowna so be prepared and ensure you have what you need prior to headin up up the mountain as you cannot just run out to the store. Our last night there we returned from Kelowna to find the power went out. All in all, it was available days before our trip so I consider myself lucky to find a place to stay near Kelowna. Next year, I think I will plan in advance. I would stay again if no other option available.

Let me just clarify a few points:
The guest was looking for place in Kelowna and couldn’t find anything. This chalet is not located in Kelowna, rather it is 45 minutes away at Big White Ski Resort so when the guest complains that it is distant then yes it is if you are wanting to go to Kelowna. However if you are looking for a place to stay on a ski hill then it is not distant at all.
The guest also mentions the extra costs associated with staying at a mountain accommodation during the off season. The hot tub and internet are turned off for the non-ski season and so there is a cost in turning these amenities back on. Most guests appreciate that the rate being charged is about a third of what it would cost for a similar place in Kelowna and therefore they are fine with either not having the hot tub or paying to have it filled and then winterized after their stay.
The guest mentions that you need to have your supplies with you since there isn’t a store open at Big White in the summer. This is true, however the guest knew this as well as all of the other things that they are complaining about (distance to Kelowna, extra charge to have the hot tub filled etc.) before they booked the chalet.

“That sweet mountain lifestyle”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

With gorgeous views out the massive front windows, the private hot tub, and fully equipped kitchen and laundry room, you really feel like you're at a home away from home. Our stay was more than comfortable and the short walk to the shuttle makes the Village Center seem a lot closer than it is. We would definitely stay again and recommend Bellevarde to anyone looking for an affordable accommodation on Big White.

The only warning I will give, is that if you do not have a vehicle you have to walk a total of 3km in the snow carrying garbage bags to get rid of your trash as per the lease agreement. With my whiplash, and my girlfriends shin splints, this was a source of some stress. If you have a vehicle then this problem is moot.

“Very comfortable/ Great ski in/out”

Plenty of room for everyone, very cozy. Hot tub was great. Location was fantastic, walking distance to the village(about 15min) or a very short car ride. Ski in/out location was great. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. The kitchen is well equipped. It had everything you could possibly need to cook with. Beds were super comfy. kids liked the video games/and board games that were provided. The owner was very quick to answer any questions, very easy to deal with.

“Spacious and cozy with everything you need and more”
Reviewed 22 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Rented this unit last minute with my boyfriend. Loved the cottage and all the extra features like video games, many TV channels, fully loaded kitchen and more! Great hot tub and the bedrooms were spacious. Great for a group of people, or for a couple. Super easy transaction and access was flawless. Owner has very helpful videos on how to ski in/ski out, we didn't even get lost! Highly Recommend!

“Best Christmas vacation ever!”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The condo was very well equipped and comfortable - just like home. The beds were very comfortable which was so important after a long day on the hill. Enjoyed the guest Netflix and hot tub!. Great location. The pet friendly nature allowed us to enjoy our Christmas with our dogs- so great!. Thanks Ed
