Reviewer Comments:

The chalet was absolutely wonderful as far as cleanliness, room layouts, amenities and location on the hill. We will likely return next year to the same place. The only glitch was that upon arrival we noted that the Apple TV which was supposed to be in the package was not there. As a big NHL fan I was looking forward to watching my teams two games while away. As it turns out the Apple TV was missing and I called they said they would look into the matter. After another day I called back to thier no response and they said the cleaner had checked off the list that the Apple TV was in fact there. It was not and I believe the cleaner didn't bother to actually check. (only my opinion) There was no further follow up even though I had asked for that evening to watch the game. I am hoping that we don't get accused of taking the box. So my first world problem here is only the way the customer service was handled and the "no solution". But really if that's the worst we can complain about then the place was pretty spectacular. All in all 4 stars out of 5.

Reviewer Comments:

The best ski in ski out you can have. The kitchen is very well stocked with pans, dishware, silverware and tools. Lots of room and well maintained. The couch is not the best and the fan in the downstairs bathroom comes on and off on it's own accord. A unique feature :) These are minor issues. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall a happy experience. The location gets full marks and the size and layout of the house was great for us. A few things were needing attention. On arrival, we struggled with front door getting in. It was a little finincky. The hot tub seemed like the water should be changed. The stereo system needs upgrading. Missing wheels on the dishwasher roller etc. Nothing that ruined our holiday by any stretch! The management co dealt with everything we called in for.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Snowbanks 1. We're glad you enjoyed your experience staying with RentChalets and we were able to attend to any issues that arose during your stay. We dump the water out of the hot tubs in all of our properties and fill them back up with fresh water before every new arrival, so the water should have been clean upon your arrival. We also check the hot tubs before each new arrival to ensure they are at the optimum temperature for use, as we find it's the first thing our guests want to do once they arrive at their rental property! We also appreciate your feedback about the stereo and the dishwasher and will look into replacing both the stereo system and having our maintenance staff look at the dishwasher. We hope to see you again in Big White sometime soon!
