“Better than staying in hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely everything we needed provided ...adequate storage and for the week we were there it felt like home in a way a hotel never could. Five adults ..we had plenty of room and found everything in a very convenient walking distance. Loved the big spa pool after skiing ...would recommend for anyone who wanted a nice but not luxurious holiday. The place internalky was a bit dated but really everything worked, it was comfortable and we loved our stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

This unit is a 3 bedroom condo. We had three couples each with one baby. You could not set up a pack-n-play crib in any of the rooms as there was only 1-3 feet of space around the beds in each room. So, one couple had to rent a whole other condo.

The unit itself is visually nice, comfy, and excellent location. The rooms were just way smaller than expected. I would stay here again, but only with one other couple even though it is a 3 bedroom.

Room Tip: Be aware that you need to walk up a flight of stairs in the condo to get to the living space.

For 20 years I've been going to Whistler every winter, for the last ten every summer as well. I finally found a place I'd never stay again- Sunpath Stoney Creek #41.
The mattresses are worn out and flat.
The highway is right outside your bedroom window.
No WiFi- who the hell travels with a lap top anymore?
1 fry pan 1 sauce pan and a huge stock pot- Not easy to fix dinner for 4.
No plastic cups to take beverages to the pool area.
The hot water tank is set so low you can only get a Luke WARM SHOWER. Not fun after snowboarding for 5 hours.

One positive is that it is close to village- 6 minute walk. I can only imagine that these are individually owned and this units owner never stays there. Otherwise these things wouldn't be so.

We stayed in Unit 49, a ground floor, single-story, two-bedroom unit the week of Feb 7, 2013.

We are a family of 4 – two adults, two teenagers. First and foremost, Brenda from Stoney Creek Property management was very helpful. We had both her and her husband’s cell numbers. Prior to our arrival, she was exceptionally patient as I grilled her on details of the various Stoney Creek complexes. I had stayed in several of them over the years with friends, but could not remember which was which (ie. We wanted to make sure the teenagers had access to a hot tub and that we were close to town so they would not have to worry about catching a bus from one of the other areas).

GENERAL:

-Location! Location! Location! Less than a 10 minute walk the lifts, a 2- minute walk to several restaurants, right at the edge of the village. A couple blocks from the grocery store. And SUPER easy to get in/out of (you don’t have to drive through a crowded village area with lots of pedestrians).

-The unit is small, but very well laid out. It was clean and tidy when we checked in. A bench in the entryway helped it stay this way (we didn’t allow outdoor shoes in the unit).

- While the kitchen was basic, it was exceptionally functional with more room than I would have thought possible in what looks to be an 8’x10’ area. I also liked that it was a light/bright color. Makes finding spills and clean-up easier. The kitchen is stocked with everything you might need for a week or two away from home.

-FREE underground parking in secured area. The parking stalls are very narrow and the height limit is 6’10” (so measure your vehicle with its ski box before you leave home!). A Subaru will have no trouble getting into any of the parking spots, but I would be hard pressed to get my Honda Ridgeline into Spot 84 (do-able, but very difficult, especially if there is a vehicle next to it). It's also super easy to pop down to the garage once you realize there is a little footpath (snow) down the hill in front of the unit that pops you out just one side of the front of the garage (and your parking stall is only 2 deep into the parking area.. no need to walk all the way around.).

-The exterior door to the unit has a push-button entry, which meant with 4 people coming and going, we did not have to worry about who had the key (or who lost it).

-It was nice that there were a few staples on hand: salt, pepper, spices, foil, plastic wrap, a couple days’ worth of coffee, dish washer powder, dish detergent, new scrubby sponge, little bottles of hair shampoo, conditioner, and tiny bars of soap (important to know if you’re flying in).

-Washer/drier in unit (you must use liquid detergent). No detergent s provided, so if you’re driving up, bring it as it is extremely expensive in the market.

-The master might be a bit roomier if there was a way to remove the footboard on the bed (did not pull it apart to see if there were side rails joined to it). The layout otherwise was great. Plenty of room, a closet, an on-suite bath.

-Master bed is very firm with a topper

-There is a local phone in the unit (so you don’t have to pay exorbitant roaming fees if you want to call a restaurant for reservations)

-Extra towels are located in each bathroom

-Quiet location (as pool guests and neighbors were considerate about the noise level).


Minor complaints:

-Some of the dishes were not clean… things like lipstick stains, pots not thoroughly washed, but they were very easily remedied.

-There was no hair dryer, but Brenda brought over a brand new one shortly after we called her to let her know the unit was missing one

-The bedroom with two twin beds is very tight. But the kids each had their own “area” and they were able to make due with no issues. They were also able to walk out the slider in their room to see if the hot tub was available (that belongs in the “plus” category).

-Remotes for the TV need better instructions (took the nephew a while to figure out how to get the cable to turn on .. box was on.. but something had to be tweaked).

Conclusion:
This is a great little unit. I would not hesitate to rent it again. And while it might seem to some folks that Stoney Creek is expensive, just consider that the average dinner out for four people will run well over $100 (and that's the more reasonable places), breakfasts at least $50-$60. If you pack a lunch, you can easily save another $60. You're in even better shape if you bring groceries from outside the village (that said, we discovered this great little organic market just across the street and around the block that was far more affordable and fresh than the grocery stores). Wish I knew the name of it.

Stayed here from Jan 29 - Feb 6 2013 and was more than happy with our choice.

The condo is on the ground floor and right at the end so is nicely secluded from any noise. It is only a few minutes walk to the centre of the village and a few more to the gondolas, nothing too far after a long days boarding. The condo itself is equipped with everything required for a pleasant stay and the ability to cook your own meals is a real money saver. Whistler itself is a very expensive resort (never found a steak for less than $45) to eat out so I would highly recommend renting a condo compared to a hotel.

With one separate bedroom and a pull out sofa bed, sleep quality was excellent.

If I had one problem it would be the plumbing, needs a plumber to have a look and figure out what all the squeaking is about when the shower is running. Would stay here again without a doubt.

When you read the full description from the owner your first reaction may be that this has to be exaggerated…can’t be this good. Well the description is 100% accurate.
We have just stayed 10 nights (January 2013) and were very impressed. Most impressive is the owner’s personalized and thorough communication from booking until departure. The extra help mentioned was never necessary as the place was immaculate upon arrival.
In addition the fridge, freezer and pantry were full of food supplied by the owner which we have never encountered anywhere in the world before. In the first 4-5 days we only needed to buy the milk! Four of us were unable to get through all the supplied goodies.
Unfortunately we did not make use of the concierge service which was our mistake as this would have been very good for lift tickets and rentals.
The location description is completely accurate but we have given it a 4 star rating only because if we had bags of money we would love to stay ski in-out on the side of the mountain which we see as 5 star. This is an unlikely scenario for us.
We have no hesitation in recommending Sunpath #11 to others or renting again for ourselves.

Room Tip: Choose Sunpath #11!

I have read some of the other reviews. If you want stuffy and perfect, do not stay here. If, however, you want a home away from home, with a fabulous hot tub and lovely pool, in an outstanding location, at a great price, these condos are for you. Our group of seven included 5 teens, and we found Sunpath 7 just great. Brenda responded immediately to a couple of little issues we had. Overall, a great stay!!!
