The Village is one of the things that makes Whistler what it is. It’s not just the snow sports that consistently keep Whistler as the number one ranked resort in North America. The pedestrian-only Village is known for internationally ranked cuisine, a vibrant apres and nightclub scene, high-end spas, and all the retail therapy an avid shopper could want. It was intended to be explored on foot and as such everything is within easy walking distance. There are stunning views no matter where you turn, and it was meticulously conceived to exist in harmony with its beautiful natural surroundings. A number of popular subdivisions are an extension of the main Village. Linked together by the Valley Trail, this area offers tons of recreational activities as well as easy access to the amenities of the Village. Many of the properties in Whistler Centre are located above the valley floor, offering beautiful panoramas of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, as well as the valley or golf course below.
Convenience is key. You are located in the heart of all the action. The properties within the Village and Benchlands area primarily cater to the short-term visitor, so most have restrictive covenants to ensure there are homes available for visitors to rent and enjoy. For example, of the 7,700 village area properties, only 42 are detached residences. But if you want to be at the heart of resort life in Whistler, the Village is the ideal place for you.
Just south of the Village, you will find Brio, which includes the exclusive ski-in/ski-out Sunridge Plateau development, as well as a mix of beautiful single-family homes.
North of Brio, perched alongside the Whistler Golf Course is Blueberry Hill, one of the resort’s first luxury home subdivisions. Some properties in Blueberry are also zoned as tourist accommodation, allowing for nightly rentals.
South of Brio, hugging the shores of Alta Lake and neighbouring Wayside Park is Alta Vista. Residents in this area can enjoy the combination of mountain and lake-side living. This neighbourhood provides a mix of townhomes, single-family homes and luxury chalets.
The neighbourhoods of Whistler Cay Heights, Whistler Cay Estates, Tapley’s Farm and Nesters are all within easy walking distance to Whistler’s hub with only the highway to separate these two areas. Views from these homes are breathtaking and each of these subdivisions offer a wide variety of properties ranging in price and style from modest single-family homes to exquisite luxury chalets.
