Vacation Internationale's Clocktower
Clocktower is a timeshare condo complex owned by Vacation Internationale. We stayed there in June 2005. There are 13 studio units and 6 one-bedroom units.
We stayed in a studio, and it was smaller than we had thought it would be. They do pack a lot of ammenities into the small space, though. There was a small kitchen with a stove, dishwasher, microwave and enough dishes for four people.
Since it was a studio, everything was in the same room (except the bathroom). The bed was a pull-down Murphy style, and not very comfortable. For seating there is a loveseat and two arm chairs that go with the small dining table.
There was no balcony, fireplace, barbeques, pool or hot tub, or fitness center.
Whistler has lots to do, and the Clocktower is right in the center of the village, at the base of some of the ski lifts, amid many shops and restaurants.
For summer, there are many bike paths, and you can also take your bike up the ski lift and ride down, if you're adventurous. We had taken our bikes and called ahead to make sure there would be somewhere secure to keep them, as we had read that all the units are on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor, and there are no elevators. We were directed to put our bikes in the sports equipment storage room, right off the lobby. You have to wheel them up a few stairs, and the room is quite small. Fortunately there were only two other bikes in there already, so our four fit just fine.
Being a resort town, things in Whistler are on the expensive side, even taking into consideration the exchange rate to the US dollar (we're from Oregon). There's a grocery store within walking distance (about the equivalent of 3 blocks away), but even groceries were spendy.
Directions: In the heart of Whistler Village, British Columbia
