CRESCENDO: UNPARALLELED EXCELLENCE - EXECUTIVE RENTAL

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Big White - Crescendo

House -5 Bedrooms - 5 Baths - (Sleeps 22)

With pleasure, we welcome you to

Crescendo: a world-class home of unparalleled excellence:

classic elegance ... like never before.

Crescendo is not merely a chalet, it’s a fortress! At more than 5000 sq ft, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect was designed for practicality and for comfort.

Crescendo is a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom home (6 bedroom if using Rec Room as a bedroom, too). Although Crescendo has enough fixed and movable beds to sleep 28, our intention is to comfortably sleep 22. To better accommodate the unique needs of our guests, several of our spaces may be arranged in different ways.

Three of our bedrooms are dedicated wholly to that use: the Master Bedroom & the two Guest Bedrooms. The Theatre and Game Room are our flexible bedrooms, meaning that the rooms can easily serve as being both entertainment areas and private bedrooms. While cleverly designed and hidden, the beds in both of those rooms are custom-made and permanent. Also, the bedding/mattresses are of the same exceptional quality as the dedicated bedrooms.

The bed/bath configurations may be found elsewhere on this site. Note, though, that even when not including the use of any of the sleeper couches, Crescendo sleeps 22 in 16 separate beds (1 King, 5 Queens, 10 Twins).

Almost all of Crescendo's bedrooms have their own private ensuites. The master ensuite, though, is especially sweet. Not only does it boast a two-person steam-shower, but the two-person jetted tub overlooks the Great Room, providing views to the fireplace, to the ski slopes, and to the Monashee mountains.

While Crescendo can’t lay claim to creating the Monashee Mountains, we can lay claim to capturing it. The unprecedented panoramas through the Great Room’s twenty-eight foot floor-to-ceiling windows are truly breathtaking. From virtually every room, in fact, your eye can feast endlessly on awe-inspiring beauty: a beauty that remains the foundational ingredient to your realizing the depth of tranquility that can be experienced at Crescendo.

Practical elegance is another way to describe Crescendo, and that description extends also to its SmartHome features. Whether you’re technologically savvy or technologically challenged, you’ll be intrigued by the intuitive nature of Crescendo’s home automation systems. When you arrive to Crescendo, merely touch “arrive”, and the home awakens. Key lighting guides you through each room, and the fireplace and whole-house XM music automatically activate setting the ambiance while you settle in. You’ll enjoy experimenting with the touchpanels in each room, through which computer-integrated lighting, audio/video, and climate-control are all at your command.

Sixteen amplified zones allow music to be localized or distributed throughout the entire house (garage and outside decks, inclusive). While XM radio is provided for you, Crescendo can shake hands with your iPod or iPhone, allowing the system to read, display, control, and distribute your personal collection as well.

Non-Skiers? No Problem!

Staying at Crescendo is like being at a private lodge. Skiers and non-skiers both rave about Crescendo’s entertainment options, which is why Crescendo is enjoyed by guests even outside of ski season. Crescendo’s Media Room, for example, is outstanding! The movie screen is 110”, with 7.1 surround sound (not to mention two 12” subwoofers). More than 800 movie titles are at your fingertips, literally. They can be reviewed by scrolling through their electronic jackets projected onto the screen, and controlled, of course, via the two touchpanels in that room (yes, you’ll find a customized remote controller, as well).

Fitness-Inclined?

No problem with body image here! Crescendo is equipped with 2 unique high-end fitness systems: the PowerTower and the SwimGym. The PowerTower was designed for high performance functional sports training (and clinical physical rehabilitation). Crescendo’s SwimGym equally adds a novel dimension to recreation, to exercise therapy, and to sports medicine. It’s non-aerated system creates an underwater current for stationary lap swimming.

Our Signature Dish

Clearly the main course at Big White is the 25 ft of champagne powder that is served at Big White each year. We have told by our guests, though, that Crescendo’s signature dish is, without doubt, our indoor-outdoor pool/Jacuzzi.

Special Events

Crescendo is the perfect venue for family or Corporate retreats, for weddings, and more. Crescendo’s expansive ceilings and open-layout combine to make Crescendo warm and inviting: whether the event is small and intimate or over 100 strong. Also, Big White’s setting, of course, is wholly magical.

Coming to Kelowna for Golfing or for the Wine Festival? Crescendo can accommodate you and your golfing buddies (or multi-generational families).

It's about the Snow, about the People, and about the Property. At Big White, it's all about the snow. Consistently, there is more champagne powder at Big White than at any other mountain I have experienced. The people of Kelowna are genuine and honorable, and the Aussie influence at Big White is electrifying. Crescendo itself? Simply stated, second to none: in its location; in its amenities; and more.

What can I say here? Read our reviews; search our native website (SkiCrescendo). Crescendo is everything and more than what is stated and what the photo gallery illustrates. We have additional videos, also, on our YouTube site.

Amazing trip @ Big White!!

We could not have been happier with the experience we had at Crescendo. We have rented many properties before but none compare to the cleanliness and amenities found here. No detail was left unthought of....down to the kitchen coming well equipped with all of the appliances, spices and cookware needed to make a meal(s) for a very large group. (Thankfully!) Loved the convenience of being in a true ski on ski-off with quick easy access to the lodge, market and bar. There is no question that I would recommend the Crescendo,.. I know I'll be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kelly! Every time I return to Crescendo I have so many of those same thoughts. First, I don’t think I could ever be happier than when I reflect on my experiences at Crescendo. Second, what a difference it makes when staying at a TRUE ski-in/ski-out home. Thanks much for the kind comments.

This is the total package for the entire family. The ease to ski on and off the mountain right to the lifts is incredible and gives the chance for parents with young children to take turns enjoying the powder. While at the house there is entertainment from movie theatre to relax or ping pong for tournament. After a long day on the mountain and games on the table take an indoor or outdoor soak in the spa. For those who are still up for some more entertainment take a simple walk to the village and enjoy the night life! I highly recommend and look forward to a future visit.

Owner's Response: Hey Tom – Thanks for the great review. Convenience, convenience, convenience! Really, it’s one of the main ingredients that goes into a ski vacation. That factor is hard to describe about Crescendo, but so readily experienced by all when there. Cheers – Mitch

Had a wonderful time at Crescendo. This is my 2nd annual trip and this time we had a group of 18 with kids. No issues with space and we all stayed comfortably. We stayed downstairs in the new converted glass room which had options to turn seating into twins beds, super comfy and like always this place is clean. My daughter got ski lessons and she said the staff was very nice and helpful, and it's very affordable. This is the best place to stay for a ski in/ ski out in all of Big White.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jeff! So glad you got to experience our new glass-walled Game Room/Bedroom. I understand the snow was pretty incredible – AGAIN – for you all this year.

We just spent a week at The Crescendo with our family and it is a fabulous property! The location is the best on the hill and a true ski in/out which is suited for all abilities and ages. The House is set up with all the necessities and comforts of home and the kitchen is well stocked. You will find everything you need (and more). The owner is extremely accommodating and pays a lot of attention to details. Since there are only 3 bedrooms but does sleep a total of 22, it is well suited to multi-families and in particular those with tweens and/or teens. The kids loved the lofts!! Very well set up for skiing - a private ski locker and lots of boot/glove dryers and plenty of hooks are a skiers dream. I would recommend this property - you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Thanks Cara for taking the time to post this review. Thanks also for noticing our attention to detail. If one of our mutual visits to Big White ever do overlap, I’ll show you some of the “behind the scenes” hidden rooms, housing our multimedia and network arrays, and our Geothermal and Pool/Jacuzzi mechanical equipment and programming. I think that what goes on behind the scenes in the home is fascinating. Regards, Mitch

Greetings at the door ski equipment carried up and put in the locker what more could you ask for! How about two convection ovens and a six burner gas cook top! Or maybe skiing out from the front door on a groomed path done each morning by the machine operator! Not enough can be said about how great this place is for making your stay Awesome.
Thanks

Owner's Response: Shahn – Thanks for the great review. Yes, we began the courtesy Valet service at the start of last ski season. Admittedly, it has been a big hit. We really do aim to please, and we appreciate all of our guests’ suggestions.

By the way, I loved your stainless steel flatware jewelry that you’ve posted on Etsy through your company name “About Tine.” Now I have two additional things to look forward to: to your enjoying Crescendo in the future, and to my seeing more of your designs on Etsy. Thanks again. Mitch
