Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) March 28, 2009
Whistler 2010 Olympics accommodation inventory is growing daily as the 2010 Games approach. Guests booking Olympics accommodation will be able to drive into and park at the resort. Over 90% of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains will be fully accessible to skier and snowboarders.
"Whistler BC is the destination skier/snowboarder place to be February 12-28, 2010" suggests Sue Chappel, CEO of alluraDirect.com Vacation Rentals, Whistler's largest vacation rental rentals by owner web site. "Visitors will experience maximum Whistler feelgood, vibe and energy, without lift lines or crowding on the slopes. Most people will be at the event venues themselves, leaving Whistler Blackcomb's vast, record-breaking terrain free and clear for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy."
Whistler 2010 accommodation is abundant and available. The myth that Whistler will experience an accommodation shortage for the Olympics may be attributed to the fact that the direct by owner vacation rental market is typically over-looked by the media. Direct by owner vacation rentals make up anywhere from 10 - 15% of Whistler's nightly rental accommodation.
Many private vacation rental homeowners delayed advertising 2010 rental availability pending decisions concerning personal during this once in a lifetime event. Many owners were also researching fair market rates. Now that the 2010 Games are less than one year away, most vacation rental homeowners are ready to book 2010 Olympics rentals http://www.alluradirect.com/whistlerolympics-2010.cfm. At press release time, over 150 vacation rentals on alluraDirect.com are available for 2010 Olympics dates. An additional 200 vacation homes are expected to become available during the coming weeks and months.
alluraDirect.com is Whistler's biggest privately managed Whistler accommodation provider . The site showcases over 520 independently managed, top-located Whistler vacation homes, available for rent directly from their owners or small local rental managers.
The website profiles each individual property in great detail. Travelers can see the exact property they will actually stay in, before they book it instantly online. Since bookings are direct with owners, travelers skip costly middle agent fees, and the 10% hotel tax for most vacation homes. In contrast with other by owner vacation rental directories, all vacation rentals listed on alluraDirect.com are ownership-verified and operate under trustworthy and accountable guarantees and standards
Travelers with booked accommodation and therefore private reserved parking spaces will be able to drive into the resort and park at their lodging. Most vacation rental properties include or provide access to a parking space, which is the golden ticket for driving into the resort during the Olympics. In contrast, access and public parking for day-trippers will be restricted, unless they are on a tour bus.
Those wanting to hit the slopes will have full access to over 90% of Whistler Blackcomb's vast terrain. Every lift, except for the Creekside Gondola, will be open for guest use. Whistler Blackcomb Resort has also guaranteed that lift ticket pricing will remain the same next year (2009/2010) as it is this year (2008/2009).
