Reviewer Comments:

Had a fantastic stay at Diamond in the Ruff! We had a comfortable stay with 12 guests, enjoying the main floor layout with plenty of space in the kitchen and living room area. Great ski in/out location. Well stocked kitchen and other amenities like extra chairs and the shower with a steamer!! We would definitely stay at this location again! Thanks for a memorable experience up at Big White.

House was great, clean and had everything needed. Hot tub cover was hard to remove with and in poor condition. It was replaced during our stay but was still hard to get off the hot tub. Would definitely recommend house to s=anyone.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Diamond in the Ruff. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love you to recommend this beautiful property to your friends and family! Thanks for the feedback about the hot tub, the covers are often quite heavy to ensure they don't blow off and can be tricky to remove, it can sometimes require more than one person. We're looking forward to welcoming you back to Big White on your next visit.

Reviewer Comments:

We have been skiing at Big White for 13 years, and we have stayed at several different properties. Diamond in the Ruff was a great house for our group of 10 (2 families)! We liked the main floor area-large kitchen & dining table and a nice living room with fireplace. LOVED the bar area with 2 extra refrigerators and loved the laundry room on the main level. Bedrooms and bathrooms were nice & sitting area upstairs was nice for kids. The ski storage area was a great size, as well. We weren't crazy about the cutout in the way (size of a large window, but open)l of one of the upstairs bedrooms that overlooked the living room (obviously there for the view, but very awkward) and the small bathroom that was to accommodate 6 people (1 sink). The kitchen was a great size, but stocked very basically-had to wash cutlery after every meal and was missing a few essential items. The hot tub was used every night, but the set up made it difficult-removing & replacing the cover was very tricky! Ski in/out was great-we don't mind using the gondola & enjoy walking down to Happy Valley lodge and up to the village. Overall great location and great house -- we would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Diamond in the Ruff. We're so glad you had a great time in this beautiful property and it was a good fit for your families. This property is in a great location, just a quick walk up the hill to the village or walk/ski down to everything Happy Valley has to offer! Thanks also for the feedback about the kitchen items, we'll be sure to review what is stocked in the kitchen to ensure there are enough utensils to accommodate the maximum number of guests allowed in the property. We really hope you'll choose to stay with RentChalets again when next you're in Big White!

Not a great ski in/ski out location. Oven was very tiny, hard to cook big meals. One of the bedrooms does not have a door ..it's open concept so no privacy. This was not disclosed on the website.
