Alta Vista Chalet
Ranked #10 of 10 Whistler B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 7, 2008

This pretty little Alpine house is only a 10-15 min walk from the town area. Hot spa on the deck, cosy lounge area with fire place. Nice little kitchen and clean cosy rooms. Resident bears that tend to make an appearance, so keep doors and windows closed.

My partner and I, plus our sister and brother in law stayed in this chalet for 10 days over 2006/2007 New Year. During the winter this Chalet is managed by Ski Miguel, and the "Dormitories" become spacious double bedrooms, all en suit. The chalet is modern and tasteful, with a boutique hotel feel. I’m amazed it becomes a dorm b+b in the summer, as my experience of dorm accommodation is rows of over crowded bunk beds and bare, basic communal areas, not the luxurious surrounding offered by this chalet. We had fantastic, knowledgeable staff who were loads of fun. The chef was amazing, stuffing us full of home made gourmet food and cake. The whole place was kept immaculate, with rooms cleaned every day, and no need for locks on the room doors. Staff provided ski tours and transfers to and from the mountain every day. They even gave up one of their nights off to throw us all a New Years Eve party, including a fabulous buffet and party games. Overall we were so impressed with the quality of the accommodation and staff, that we are booked back in for this New year! cant wait to go back!

Plus points when managed by Ski Miguel include:
Free transfers to and from mountain (no other chalet offered this – and taxis are rare!)
Fresh, modern and cozy.
Big fire in lounge.
Hot tub on deck.
5 mins in a car to whistler village
Boot drying facilities.
Cooked breakfast, afternoon tea and 4 course eve meal with free wine.
Honesty fridge offering beer, soft drinks and chocolate (for reasonable fee)
Large bedroom with en suit bathrooms (with heated floors)

It's a nice house with some problems like no one ever bothers to empty the garbage. For 5 days I've been staying in a dorm room and no one has ever emptied the wastebaskets nor bothered to give us a new roll of toliet paper. I've had to supply my own roll because there isn't any management oversight here. I've killed flying ants in the bedroom, spiders and tiny frogs.

The bathroom floors are disgusting. I had phoned this chalet about 4 dozen times without exaggeration, to make a reservation, because no one ever bothers to answers the phone.

They only take cash. They don't take reservations as I've discovered.

They are losing business here in a big way because no one knows how to run this place. The management is an absentee landlord. Where the hell is he ?

The two part time workers( a Canadian guy who spends 99% time on the bike park, sleeping or paryting, and an Australian gal who does the minimum) are rarely seen on the premises.

It's a dirty, unsanitary mess inside even though it looks like a palace.

This place is fantastic. Hot tub on the bottom deck. BBQ on the top deck. Beautiful living room and bedrooms each have their own bathroom.
A shared $6 cab ride into town or a 1/2 hr walk on a lit pathway. It is lussshh. And the two lads running the place are top notch. I have stayed here often and have never been disappointed.
