  • Beautiful home in great location

    "Stayed here for a week in mid-July. The photos do not do this cabin justice - at all. The main living space is huge, plenty of couches, beautiful fireplace and excellent TV / sound system. The dining room can sit ten comfortably. The kitchen is the best equipped of any rental we have stayed in. Its clear that this is not just a vacation rental, but rather a home that is enjoyed, loved and cared for by its owners. The upstairs space is equally impressive, with a massive master suite, one queen bedroom and another with two bunks. There is also a lovely den, stocked with lots of books and wooden toys which my kids got hours and hours of fun out of. There is an additional queen downstairs. The home is on a very quiet court and offers a good deal of privacy. There's a good sized deck right off of the living room and plenty of wooded space to explore at the back of the cabin. If you haven't been to Northstar before, you should know that the Big Springs area is by far the nicest part of the resort. More generally, this location worked for us as a base for exploring Tahoe, Truckee, Reno and as far as Virginia City in Nevada. There aren't many shops in Northstar itself, but Truckee and Kings Beach (both only 15mins away) will have everything you could need for your stay. We had one minor issue during our stay which Brad and Laura were super quick to respond to. I highly recommend this cabin - we would happily stay here again."

  • Beautiful Mid Century Modern

    "This is a stunning home. The owner has taken great care to insure that every detail is perfect. It's tastefully decorated and so comfortable that we hated to leave even for dinner. The kitchen is incredible. Everything you need is there and if you like to cook you will be very happy. Our dog loved the private backyard and the heated pool was wonderful. We would stay here again without hesitation. Thank you, Joann for allowing us to stay at your lovely home."

  • we loved our stay!!!

    "We loved staying at Linda and Mike's place and will definitely stay again on our next trip to San Fran! The location is fantastic, with the Muni just a few blocks away and within half an hour you're right downtown. When you finish your day exploring the city, you come back to a quiet and comfortable place and a great night's sleep. there's a great little garden area in the back just off the suite to just sit back and relax and every morning there was a little unexpected breakfast treat in the kitchenette."

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
