Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath with heated floors and mountain views from decks on two sides

The Bluffs at Taluswood is a townhouse project in the Nordic area of Whistler Creekside, just up the hill from Dusty's and Creekside (the original Whistler Village), with various restaurants, grocery and other services. We're a 1 - 2 minute drive straight up from the Rim Rock Cafe, consistently one of Whistler's finest restaurants.

Our 2 bedroom 2 bath townhome is 5 stairs up from the street then situated all on one level and is an end unit so you have the benefit of fewer neighbors plus decks on two sides. You will enjoy the spectacular views of the Dave Murray Olympic Downhill and Peak to Creek to the east, or the Tantalus Range to the south. We use a keyless entry that provides you the ultimate in security and convenience, so you won't need a physical key to enter. You'll love the heated floors when you step onto the bathroom or kitchen floor on a cold morning.

Your entryway has a place to stow your skis/boards and ski boots. In the summer, you can confidently leave your bicycle in the secured bike cage in the parking garage. Further indoors, the master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and a large deck that looks to the east, straight up the Olympic downhill run from approximately the finish line area. The master bathroom has a jetted bathtub/shower combination, and we provide plush towels, hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The second bedroom has double-size bunk beds. The kitchen is stocked to the gills with dishes, glasses, wine glasses, flatware, kitchen utensils, and miscellaneous oils and spices. Small appliances include toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, power juicer, and fondue pot. Pots and pans are All-Clad brand, and we have also provided an All-Clad crock pot and two Le Creuset casseroles. Your refrigerator/freezer is huge, and your range, microwave oven and dishwasher are like new. We tried to think of everything so you wanted for nothing. There is also a large dining area, and your living room has plenty of seating area and a gas fireplace with TV, DVD player and Apple TV. For those beautiful barbecue days, we have a large Weber gas barbecue on the deck for your cooking enjoyment.

In Winter, we're an ALMOST true ski-in/ski-out with a 2 minute walk onto the hill, and in Summer we're a short, fun downhill ride to the Valley Trail or wherever you would like to venture. Whistler Village shopping and activities are about 3 km away, so it's not far to the party, but it's always nice to return to the serenity of your townhome.

About Paul & Kumi

Our names are Kumi & Paul. We love Whistler/Blackcomb and we're pleased to share our home with you. Please enjoy it and care for it just as we do. We want you to feel comfortable in your home away from home, and we hope you have everything you need to make your stay magnificent. We will spend most of our winters right next to you on the ski slopes and our summers outdoors on the trails. Creekside is our favorite part of Whistler because it's more "local", more serene, and lift lines tend to be short or non-existent (except on pow days where everyone heads up the mountain), and life is just easier. Creekside lifts are now open in the summer, with the bike park just a 30-second pedal away and Whistler Village is accessible from Creekside gondola or via the Valley Trail.

We want you to have the most memorable vacation of your life, and we'll do our best to make it happen. We'll provide you a good value and we hope you will enjoy and appreciate the small touches that make any trip special. We appreciate good service ourselves, so you can count on us to take care of you before, during and after your stay.

Paul & Kumi purchased this townhome in 2016

Why Paul & Kumi chose Nordic Estates

We retired from medical and finance careers at the end of 2013 and moved from our paradise in Hawaii to the outdoor wonderland of Vancouver to pursue our love of the seasons, the mountains and skiing. Most people thought we were crazy to leave the sunshine and beaches of Hawaii for the "cold" of Canada, but we were in Hawaii for over 20 years and we couldn't be happier being in Vancouver and in Whistler. For our first 3 years in Vancouver, we made the 90 minute drive from Vancouver to Whistler 50 - 60 times per season, and finally we said, "We need to own a place in Whistler!"

What makes this townhome unique

We love Whistler. Though our primary home is in Vancouver, it always feels like we're coming home when we get to Creekside. We ski the whole mountain, but there's always something that feels special about those runs that come back to Creekside Village: the Dave Murray Downhill and the Peak to Creek always take us home. When we saw The Bluffs at Taluswood we fell in love again. The proximity to the Village, the serene surroundings and the views up the hill whispered to us and we had to have it.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Paul & Kumi are very attentive and they have a beautiful condo. We normally stay with a friend a little ways down the road, but needed our own place this time. The views were amazing and it had everything we needed for our stay. We had our kids with us and they liked the hot tub just steps away. Can't say enough nice things about this place and if we have a need to book our own place on our next visit we'll definitely return here!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Bluffs. The condo was perfect for our family of four. Everything we needed for a great vacation was provided. Skiing was a short walk away. We were able to make great meals -- crock pot is a plus!

Would recommend without hesitation.

Ski in Ski out with a breathless view

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and very clean condo with a great view. Short walk (2 min.) to get to the slopes. Paul and Kumi are excellent hosts. Recommended to people who want to avoid the crowd and noise of the Whistler village.

There are several factors making this ski trip the best in 4 years.

- Great weather ans powder condition

- Paul and Kumi's property so cozy and neat

- Paul and Kumi so professionally taking care of us during our stay. They are the best hosts I have ever seen and experienced with.

- We love the quietness and beautiful environment

- We enjoyed the "almost ski-in & ski-out" location

Fantastic stay! Thank you, Paul and Kumi.

Our address is #17 - 2301 Taluswood Place. About 200 meters north of Creekside Village, turn at either the Highlands entrance or just up the road at the Nordic Estates entrance. The route to our townhome is closer from Highlands but more direct from Nordic.

A) From the Sea to Sky Highway, you may turn right at the Highlands sign, which is Whistler Road. Take the 2nd right turn, which is still Whistler Road, then the first left turn, which is still Whistler Road. When you reach the end of the road, you’ll see Whistler Lodge Hostel, and this is where you turn right onto Nordic Drive. Stay on Nordic Drive to the stop sign at Taluswood Place (almost at the top), and turn left, then immediately turn left again into “The Bluffs” complex. #17 is the end unit in the third cluster directly over the entrance to the parking garage and is well-marked.

B) You may also turn right at the Nordic Estates sign about 300 meters north of the Highlands entry. If you take this route, take the first right onto Nordic Place then take the first left onto Nordic Drive. Stay on Nordic Drive to the stop sign at Taluswood Place (almost at the top), and turn left, then immediately turn left again into “The Bluffs” complex. #17 is the end unit in the third cluster directly over the entrance to the parking garage and is well-marked.
