The big sell: One of the attractions of this property in Whistler’s Glacier’s Reach development is that the two-storey townhome has a versatile layout, with one unit on the second floor and another on the floor above. Both units are fully furnished and each has a bedroom and a bathroom, enabling owners to enjoy unrestricted use, plus the ability to capitalize on rental income. The property has air conditioning and an in-suite laundry, and there are two large decks with plenty of room for a table and chairs from which to enjoy the far-reaching views of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. The complex has a central area with a heated outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, and there is a fitness facility, underground parking and bike storage. The building is across from the Marketplace and a short walk to the village. There is also a free shuttle bus that travels straight to the gondolas. Strata fees for this property are $486 monthly.
