Overview

About the property

Condominium - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6-8)

Come enjoy our centrally located family condo at Northstar resort. You and the kids can walk to the pool and recreation center without crossing any streets in 10 minutes on a trail in the forest. Ski back to the condo from the slopes. Relax on two decks with open space views of aspens and pines. Come in and warm up by the fireplace.

This condo is convenient in so many ways. Drive from the San Francisco Bay Area or Sacramento. Fly in and it's only 45 minutes from Reno airport. Once you get here, you're only 15 minutes from Lake Tahoe or historic Truckee. If you can stand giving up your ski back location, it's only 30 minutes to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows or Diamond Peak at Incline Village.

But you probably won't want to leave. You'll be only 600 yards from the gondola, the village (including Starbucks!), or the heated outdoor pool and recreation center (access card included with your rental). You can walk or take the free shuttle bus. Soak in one of 3 spas, use the gym or one of 10 tennis courts. The kids will love the new play water features. Hike or mountain bike the local trails. A few minutes drive and you're at the golf course.

After a full day of outdoors fun, you'll need some rest. The bottom floor of the condo has two bedrooms and a full bathroom. One has two twin beds; the other has a queen. The middle floor has the kitchen, dining area and living room. The private top floor has the master bedroom with queen bed and it's own bathroom.

This is the perfect getaway for your family and friends. Check out our availability calendar. Contact us to make your reservation now.

About Alex

My wife and I are veterinarians in Escondido, California near San Diego. We are both graduates of UC Davis Veterinary School. I got my undergraduate degree at Cornell University in New York state. We have two kids, one in grad school at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in Physics and one recently graduated from UCLA in Neuroscience and pursuing an acting career. I love skiing and tennis. We have two dogs, two horses and a cat. My wife loves to ride and show Quarter horses.

Alex purchased this condo in 2007

Why Alex chose Truckee

I grew up in Santa Clara County in the Bay Area and learned to ski at Tahoe when I was 4 or 5 years old. I have skied there almost every year of my life since. I have a timeshare in Park City, but when it came time to go full ownership, there was no question of where to go. Tahoe is more beautiful and of course has great nostalgic value for me.

What makes this condo unique

At first I bought this place as a ski property, but I returned to playing tennis a year later and then discovered the great tennis camps right at the rec center that goes with my property. I am a year around fan now.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Escrow closed on my dream Tahoe condo Friday, 5/11. Working feverishly to interview and find great housekeepers, get bids on new furnace, new hot water heater and fireplace gas log. Getting materials ready for internet listings and web site. Doing my best to get it in good shape for renters who want to share the dream.

We were here August 1-8. Beautiful weather, ranging

from warm to cool. Great hikes: rested at Sawmill Lake

and saw an eagle there! The condo was was a

wonderful refuge. Great to have a computer we could

do searches on. Very clean and comfortable all

around. A memorable visit we would like to repeat.

Our family had a nice time at this conveniently located condo.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five adults loved the gas fireplace and spacious balconies. The appliances worked well and there were plenty of towels. The complex is well-maintained though I wish they offered recycling. Alex was easy to work with and responsive. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Nice condo very close to the village

  • 4 of 5

Nice, clean condo very close to the village. It’s less than a 2 minute drive or jump on one of the many shuttles that run from the parking lot a few feet away. Owner is very engaging and easy to work with. We enjoyed it very much.
