Big White Guest Houses - Executive style house - 5500 sq ft / 510 sq m - Ground level
This modern ski chalet is more than 5000 sq ft, and every aspect was designed for practicality and comfort. The 12' x 16' pool is jetted and heats to Hot Tub temperatures. This 5 bedroom 5 bathroom home has enough fixed and movable beds to sleep 28, although our intention is to comfortably sleep 22. To better accommodate the unique needs of our guests, several of our spaces may be arranged in different ways. Even when not including the use of any of the sleeper couches, our Chalet sleeps 22 in 16 separate beds (1 King, 5 Queens, 10 Twins).
A Perfect Place for Weddings or Golf groups, Family Reunions or Retreats. To golf aficionados, Kelowna is a golfing mecca. The climate, the long dry season, the natural beauty, and the accessibility are all contributory. There are over 20 golf courses to choose from.
Are you a lover of fine wine. The Kelowna area and Okanagan Valley is known for its spectacular vineyards producing premium quality wines that regularly win national and international wine competitions and recognition. There are over 25 wineries in the Kelowna area, and well over 200 wineries in the whole Okanagan Valley region.
Almost all of our bedrooms have their own private ensuites. The master ensuite, though, is especially sweet. Not only does it boast a two-person steam-shower, but the two-person jetted tub overlooks the Great Room providing views to the fireplace, the ski slopes, and the Monashee mountains.
While we can’t lay claim to creating the Monashee Mountains, we can lay claim to capturing it. The unprecedented panoramas through the Great Room’s twenty-eight foot floor-to-ceiling windows are truly breathtaking. From virtually every room your eyes can feast endlessly on awe-inspiring beauty.
A true ski-in/ski-out ski chalet--leave the home through our ski breezeway and then ski/board down to Happy Valley, the Gondola, or to three different chairlifts. Located only steps to Big White’s main village.
Practical elegance is another way to describe our Chalet, and that description extends also to its SmartHome features. Whether you're technologically savvy or technologically challenged, you'll be intrigued by the intuitive nature of the home's automation systems. When you arrive, merely touch “arrive” and the home awakens. Key lighting guides you through each room, and the fireplace and whole-house XM music automatically activate setting the ambiance while you settle in. You'll enjoy experimenting with the touchpanels in each room through which computer-integrated lighting, audio/video, and climate-control are all at your command.
Sixteen amplified zones allow music to be localized or distributed throughout the entire house (garage and outside decks, inclusive). While XM radio is provided for you, our home can shake hands with your iPod or iPhone, allowing the system to read, display, control, and distribute your personal collection as well.
Non-Skiers. No Problem. Skiers and non-skiers both rave about our entertainment options, which is why our home is enjoyed by guests even outside of ski season. Our Theatre, for example, is outstanding. The movie screen is 110”, with 7.1 surround sound (not to mention two 12” subwoofers). More than 800 movie titles are at your fingertips, literally. More than 1000 square feet of pure fun permeate the Garage/Game Room level, including the latest Nintendo Wii gaming system.
Fitness-Inclined. We have 2 unique high-end fitness systems: the PowerTower and the SwimGym. The PowerTower was designed for high performance functional sports training (and clinical physical rehabilitation). Our SwimGym equally adds a novel dimension to recreation, to exercise therapy, and to sports medicine. It’s non-aerated system creates an underwater current for stationary lap swimming.
Our Signature Dish. We have told by our guests that our signature dish is, without a doubt, our indoor-outdoor pool/Jacuzzi. Check it out!
