Property type townhome

About the property

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

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!**

Why The Owner chose Truckee

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!

Great place to stay in Northstar!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday weekend at Northstar. Great location to the village and the extra amenities of the fitness center and shuttle are fantastic. Condo had all of the kitchen items to cook a Thanksgiving dinner. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and clean kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.

Nicely equipped, comfortable condo

  • 4 of 5

Conveniently situated 2BR/2BA condo in a well maintained complex right near the Village at Northstar. Fully equipped kitchen. We liked the proximity to the hiking trails, we had lovely weather and used them every day. In the off season, not much is open in the Village, but Truckee is a short drive. The owners were great. We had an issue, I'll spare the long story, but they handled it perfectly. Plus we had to stay over a couple extra nights due to the Wine country fires near our home, and that wasn't a problem. We would gladly rent again.

Excellent home and location

  • 5 of 5

One of the best locations in Northstar - close enough to walk or bike to the Village, yet far enough away that you don't hear or see it. The owners are super cool and they have stocked it with everything you would have at your own home. It is extremely quiet inside and out which made for a great night sleep. The beds are super comfortable and the whole place was very clean. takes about 2 minutes to drive to the village parking area and then 4 minutes to walk to Starbucks. Downtown /old Town Truckee is only about 10 minutes away.

My favorite thing to do at night was to walk outside, look up, and gaze at the Milky Way.

I highly recommend this home for anyone who wants to be surrounded by huge trees in a safe and quiet neighborhood at a very affordable price.

Nice well-equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here over a weekend in late summer. The condo was perfect - had everything we needed. The weather was on the warm side but the condo was very comfortable inside, especially with the bedrooms downstairs. Very clean and comfortable, and easy to get to both Truckee and Lake Tahoe, plus the shuttle makes it convenient to get around the Village area.

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!
