Akasha Estate, Whistler, British Columbia Vacation Rental
Akasha estate in Whistler takes in the entire valley view from a commanding height. Prestigious Sunridge Plateau is the highest development on the mountain, yet it’s just a five minute alpine walk from Akasha to the Village centre. With its perfect balance of tradition and technology, Akasha’s comfort, warmth, and truly magical atmosphere is wonderfully seductive.
The Balance of Nature & Comfort
In ancient folklore, a red cedar is the gateway to Akasha, the spiritual seat of higher realms. Today a four hundred-year-old cedar is the central feature in the most inspired home in Whistler, British Columbia.
Rising powerfully from the central foyer and encircled with a stairway of hardwood and custom wrought iron. The cedar is only the first of many delights to be discovered at Akasha a rare jewel, the most creative home on the mountain.
Akasha's timeless design includes hewn coastal timber tipped with copper facing, fireplaces with log mantles, granite and river rock surfaces, and custom millwork. Every piece is an original.
Every detail has been considered from heating the decks, the hearth, and outside benches, to the lighting of the landscaped pathways, to the state of the art safety and security systems.
In the Heart of Nature Nestled in the mountains, Akasha's innovative space flows as naturally as the nearby alpine streams, taking full advantage of natural light and views. Akasha's spa includes an indoor lap pool and steam room, watched over by forest spirits carved into totems by First Nations artist Rick Harry. The pool is fed by a stream cascading over sculptured rock, and opens onto heated flagstone decks with a hot tub carved from stone, all with views of the valley below.
The lighting in the pool room is intriguing as well as subtle. It accents the curved ceiling, custom designed of yellow & red cedar to replicate the inside of a giant canoe. The ambiance it creates gives the pool a look of tranquility.
The crown of Akasha is a copper-roofed perched atop an ancient cedar. A three month search for the structurally specific cedar lead us from the far north to the Fraser River where this ancient giant was rescued from being milled into lumber. The cupola takes in panoramic views of the village, Whistler Golf Course, Blackcomb Mountain, and nearby Tantalus mountain range.
