This place is wonderful (a summertime stay report)!
This place is wonderful (a summertime stay report)!
We spent a week at this property for a summer vacation with our two young kids, and had an amazing time. The property is really well maintained and is, as advertised, fully stocked with necessities, as well as amenities. It was super-comfortable and relaxing, and it was really easy to feel right at home. We made lots of use of the NPOA recreation center that you have access to with the condo rental, and it was a terrific way to spend summer days with little kids-- our 4 year-old daughter even learned to swim thanks to the NPOA swim instructors! The drive to the lake was also really easy-- we played and swam at King's Beach almost every day-- also a great spot for kids. We also availed ourselves of all Northstar Village has to offer in the summer-- gondola rides up the mountain for hiking, roller skating, and bungee jumping-- super fun! Truckee is also a very close drive and is a really cute town offering anything you might need for your stay. The condo owners were wonderful to do business with-- they provided very organized, timely, and clear communications with information upfront, and were also very responsive to questions. We felt like we were in great (and hospitable) hands. We would highly recommend this property to anyone (especially families with little kids) looking for a relaxing, comfortable, convenient, and fun getaway. We absolutely plan to return again!

We stayed at this Condo for 2 weeks in late January to specifically to ski Northstar and surrounding ski fields. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids, and this Condo suited our needs exactly. The pre-check-in instructions from the owners were excellent - good maps and general information. Upon arrival, the Condo was exactly as presented in the website. Very clean and tidy. The location was suitable for our needs - note it was not ski-in, ski-out........but it was never presented that way, and there are free shuttle buses to the Northstar lifts that are only a few minutes shuttle drive away. To visit the other ski fields, I recommend having private transport and not relying on public transport. Inside the Condo, the kitchen was very well equipped, and the netflix movie channel was a hit with our teenagers! Bedding configuration was perfect for our needs and the master bed ensuite was great, although note there is a small flight of stairs to the ensuite. The owners couldnt have been more helpful with dialogue via email, and gave concise and thoughtful extra information when we asked. Overall, we had a great time, and the Condo was perfect for our needs - clean, tidy and well maintained. Thanks.

Loved this place!
Loved this place!
We've rented several places in Tahoe over the years. This Northstar condo has a very convenient shuttle that drops off right at the curbside in front of Northstar! The condo has a well-designed floor plan, the kitchen had every kind of appliance and utensil that we needed, and there are clear helpful labels and instructions located in obvious places. It's a very easy and comfortable place to stay! The nice flat screen TV can be rotated to be viewed from the couch or the dining table. My kids had a blast sledding in front of the condo and I appreciated the walkway being cleared of snow every morning! It's a perfect location; we definitely want to return to this place again!

My 13 y.o. son and I spent four nights at this lovely, well maintained unit at Northstar. We were there to use the mountain biking opporunities. The one mile ride to the lifts up the mountain was a pleasurable warm up. Shuttle is right there but unnecessary during bike season. The unit feels well loved and has absolutely every imaginable kitchen device. The only sound at night was the breeze. The place feels absolutely private and secure. Terrific DVD collection. Arriving after an exhausting day of hill riding was a comfort. Great value. No pictures because we were too busy enjoying ourselves to bother.

We had a wonderful stay at your condo. It was clean and fully stocked with necessities and comfort items. It was convenient to the slopes via a short shuttle ride. One thing that we really appreciated was the layout of the condo. Since the bedrooms were separated from the living/dining/kitchen area, it was perfect for putting the little kids to bed early and allowing the adults to stay up later. We would be happy to stay there again on future trips to Northstar.

Winter Wonder Land!!!! This was by far the best place we have stayed yet. The house comes with everything one could need to feel right at home. The views from the home are amazing. Northstar is now our favorite place to board. Thanks so much to the Villarreal's. We will be back next year.

We were thrilled when we arrived at the Condo to see the floorplan with the master on one floor and the two other bedrooms on the bottom floor. That positioned the living room (with fireplace) overlooking the woods and up to the ski slopes. The condo was just blocks from the Northstar Village and just a few steps from where the Northstar bus picks you up to go to the slopes or the Village (which has great restaurants and shopping). The owners had clear instructions on all devices (TV, Cable, Internet, Fireplace, Laundry) and everything worked great. Our only problem was that we did not have enough time to enjoy the Spa at the Village (comes with the condo)and spend a few more days on the slopes. We had four generations of family on this trip and everyone had a great time. We will be back next year!

It has been our pleasure to stay at the Villarreal condo in Northstar for over 25 years. They keep the property in execellent condition and the location is perfect for every activity in Northstar. I would like to keep this place a secret because we love staying there, but I told John and Nancy I would be happy to give our recommendation.

This is the second year in a row staying at this wonderful condo! It's perfect for our family of 4 but can definitely accommodate another family comfortably! We came during the winter so it was a perfect place for sledding, snowboarding, and skiing. We made a sled run right next to the condo but there's a much larger one just a few steps away. So perfect for kids! And the short shuttle ride away to the village and rec center couldn't be easier! Pick up the phone, call, and they're there! So great! We'll be coming back every year and can't wait to stay in the summer. The pool and rec center are just gorgeous! Thank you John & Nancy for your beautiful condo. We are so happy we found it!

We have been enjoying family vacations at this condo for 10 years, returning each September, and when possible, in the spring. It has been our home away from home. Meal preparation at the condo is very enjoyable, given a kitchen that is so well-equipped with every imaginable cooking implement and utensil. Sleeping, bath, and other accommodations are spacious for our family of four. The location is peaceful, beautiful, and is a wonderful place to unwind. Action for the kids, however, is close and accessible. Vacations at the condo always seem too short, we are always anxious to return. The owners, Nancy and John, are very gracious hosts.
