Rental Program

This program is designed to help offset the cost of your maintenance fees, but has the potential to help owners earn extra revenue.  Our rental team are dedicated to ensuring that your entire week is rented at the best possible rates. We work directly with your HOA presidents to ensure that this program is maximizing it’s potential. 

Have your week auto-submitted each year or just this year. Have your revenue put towards your maintenance fees for the following year (2023).

 

DEMAND FOR EARLY WINTER BOOKINGS IS PICKING UP! 

Give your week a good chance to get rented by submitting your week at least three months before it starts (but now is a better time than never).

Applications should be submitted at least 30 days prior to start of week(s). Individual consideration may be made for those weeks that are in high demand. Once submitted you will receive a confirmation that your form was sent. Please review the terms and conditions for the Rental Program.

Payment & Guarantee

For those weeks that generate rental income, we will process payment within 60 days of the close of the month in which the rental occurred. We do not charge a listing fee to enroll your week. We only collect our fee if your week is rented. 

Canadian owners are paid out, on average 67% of the net revenue earned. Non-Canadians earn 38% on average + 25% after filing the Non-Resident Withholding Tax.

Please note that there are no guarantees that your week will be rented. If you week does not have a rental assigned to it, you may remove it from the program with no penalty. If there are days that have not been rented, you may use the remaining days by contacting the rental department within 7 days of the start of your week. 

Frequently Asked Questions About the Rental Program

Whiski Jack Resorts (Whistler) Ltd is obligated to withhold 25% of non-Canadian residents’ gross rental income, and remit this amount to the Canada Revenue Agency.  By March 31st each year, we provide non resident owners that earned rental income in the prior year, an NR4 slip which reports their gross rental income, and the total amount of tax withheld.  Please ensure that your mailing address is correct so that we are able to get the NR4 tax form to you. Owners can then either hire a Canadian Tax preparer or file themselves. The details of how to file can be found on the Canadian Revenue Agency website. Whiski Jack Resorts does not act as agent to owners in this capacity and takes no responsibility for this filing.
