Gold Bend Northstar--Village Life Without the Village Price!

Bedrooms 2
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

** Hello! We are planning on a ski-lease for early Jan 2017 - early May 2017. But keep your summer, fall, and Christmas/NYE inquiries coming! NOTE: WE ARE SOMETIMES HAVING ISSUES WITH THE INSTANT QUOTE OPTION--IF THE CALENDAR SHOWS OPEN YOU CAN JUST SHOOT US AN EMAIL TO INQUIRE**

Why pay new Village prices…when you can get it all for less! Stay in this 2 bedroom 2 bath Gold Bend townhome (sleeps 6 with Queen-sized sleeper sofa) less than a half mile walk from the new village, or literally walk out the door to catch the FREE Northstar shuttle (the ride is just a couple minutes!).

Enjoy the Village life using the private “Rec Center” (Northstar Property Owners Association Recreation Center) with its heated lap pool, 3 large spacious hot tubs, sauna, and a fully equipped gym with locker rooms. Our guests receive full membership privileges at the swim and racquet club during their stay! In addition, during the summer enjoy the tennis center with 10 courts and don’t forget the 18-hole golf course.

While at the village, enjoy the outdoor ice-rink with heated seating areas and fire pits (winter) and roller rink (summer) or stroll through the many boutiques, galleries, and specialty shops. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to chose from as well. Most importantly hop on the gondola and enjoy Tahoe’s best skiing and snowboarding in the winter or hiking and mountain biking in the summer.

Visit the Northstar at Tahoe website (google NorthstaratTahoe) for a complete listing of stores, activities and events. Or head to Truckee for more shops and restaurants just down the road. And of course, dont forget to enjoy Lake Tahoe and all its beauty.

This is a NON-smoking unit. While we love animals, this is a NO-PET rental.

Our place does have Wireless internet for your convenience.

**For those of you with Kiddos, as of Oct 2010, we purchased a Pack and Play for your convenience. One less thing to lug to Tahoe!**

Please contact us for information regarding our HUGE discounts for stays longer than a week….rent it for a month, a season, or a year!

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Our family loves Truckee, Northstar, and the Lake Tahoe area. It's a perfect balance of kid friendly & outdoor activities, but plenty of fun for the adults to get out too!

What makes this townhome unique

We love walking to the village, hanging around the fire-pits and ice rink, and enjoying afternoon apps while the kids skate!

Delightful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here while researching wedding venues and this was the perfect condo for us. The two bedrooms were on the main floor so we didn't have to take luggage upstairs. The washer and dryer were very handy and the kitchen well equipped (even had a Keurig!) even though we didn't do any cooking. The location of the condo was lovely-there was even snow! Lisa and Julie were so sweet and helpful! We didn't get to spend any time in the complex, but they had a very detailed notebook in the condo on things to do and places to see! We would love to stay there again!

Excellent value, excellent location

  • 4 of 5

I recently rented this mountain condo for 5 weeks this summer and thoroughly enjoyed my weeks in Gold Bend. The condo is exactly as presented on the site: photos, reviews, descriptions, etc. The two bedrooms are located on the first floor along with the two bathrooms. The beds and linens are first rate; there are plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, and blankets. The upstairs open floor plan with vaulted ceilings felt expansive and homey with comfortable furnishings. The upper deck has a table and four chairs for outside dining and relaxing. The entire condo is fully stocked with kitchen utensils, pots, pans, dishes, dinnerware, glasses, paper products, detergents, plastic bags, bath supplies, etc. Having rented many places on VRBO, I know from experience this is unusual. The guest bathroom is tiny, barely enough room for a short, slight person, but that is the only negative thing I can say. The two owners are exceptionally receptive to inquiries, warm, and helpful.

Owner's Response: Starr, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and could escape your summer heat for awhile! Yes, unfortunately the guest bath is a bit tight, but we figure a small 2nd bathroom is better than no 2nd bath :) Let us know if you'd like to escape to Tahoe again!

Perfect condo for long weekend in Tahoe with teens

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo last minute and the owners were so available and just awesome in making sure we had all the details covered. The condo was just right for our group - which included my husband and two 13 year old boys. It was just a short walk (we didn't even bother with the shuttle bus) to Northstar Village where we enjoyed the pool and the boys enjoyed the arcade and fitness rooms. The condo was stocked with everything we needed and was very clean and a quiet area. Northstar is so convenient to get around Tahoe - we went to Squaw Creek for a fly fishing lesson and Sand Harbor beach for the Shakespeare festival. Nothing was too far away! It was just what we were looking for in a last hurrah of summer before back-to-school routine set in! Absolutely faultless. We will come again!!!

Perfect North Star Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to find this cabin last minute. The cabin was perfect for our family! The shuttle ride is just a few minutes and very quick to arrive (make sure that you are ready to walk out the door when you call for the ride as they are nearly instant). Very comfortable overall and felt like home. Coleman R. Cassel II, Ph.D

Skiing at Northstar

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! Everything as promised and more. Very spacious with all the amenities at home. We had two girls with us and never felt crowded; everyone could go to their own space as needed. Well stocked kitchen. Only a few steps to the shuttle for Northstar skiing that was very efficient. Short drive to town for restaurants, shopping, etc. Owner was always responsive for any questions we had during our stay. Highly recommended!
