About The Owner

We are a family of four who love snow and the ocean. We own two vacation homes in California - in La Jolla (San Diego), VRBO # 276841 for its great beach, zoos and dining, and Kirkwood (Lake Tahoe area) for the best, deepest snow in California. Both homes are furnished to be luxurious, comfortable and kid-friendly. We love spending time in both places - you will too.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2009

Why The Owner chose Kirkwood

We have been skiing at Kirkwood since the early 90s, and love it for its great terrain, the best snow in the Lake Tahoe area, and low key atmosphere that attracts serious skiers and snowboarders. Now with our kids old enough to enroll in ski teams, we wanted a place to call home at Kirkwood.

What makes this townhome unique

Our new home has a fantastic location close to the main lodge and chairs five and six: Solitude and Cornice Express - while we must walk (all of two minutes) to the lifts, we can ski back practically to our front door. Our home is luxurious, spacious and comfortable, and it's great to go home for hot chocolate and lunch breaks instead of battling daytrippers for seats at the lodge and restaurants. We park our car in the garage and touch it only when we leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place in Kirkwood. Lots of space and the owners keep it really really clean! The super comfortable beds are a highlight. Great kitchen too. And the kids loved the toys and games and books. The owners are really easy to work with and super thorough.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great - perfect for 2 families with children! We wished the fireplace had been working but not a big deal. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful property, modern and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This condo was gorgeous and we really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfy and the kitchen/living area was huge and a great place to relax. The lifts are a little bit of a walk away with small kids, and it seems just close enough that taking the free shuttle is silly, but it is woth it to stay in such luxury and comfort.

the perfect ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of 5, went up to Kirkwood for 4 days the second week in February. Prior to that It was snowing for three days. We probably experienced the best snow & skiing conditions for this season. On top of that we found this amazing condo between Timber Creek and Timber Mountain Resort. It had everything we wished for in order to indulge ourself after a perfect day of skiing. Specious rooms for all of us. A nice big kitchen with the top notch appliances. Large Jacuzzi bathtub and a beautiful fireplace. The kids found a lot of nice board games as well as a big TV / BlueRay set incl Netflix account. Completed was this with a large, fully functioning fire place in the middle of a cozzy living room. Vara, our host, was super friendly and responded very quickly to questions we had. It was hard to say good bye after almost a week. We'll definitely go back soon, hoping for lots of snow and availability of this gorgeous vacation place. Vara, Thank you so much for the perfect ski vacation. Michael & family

Great Condo for Kirkwood

  • 4 of 5

The condo is really well equipped (the kitchen in particular was great for cooking all our meals) and has a great location. In most seasons, it may qualify as a ski-in/ski-out condo but, sadly, that hasn't been the case this year. Instead, we had a short walk (5 mins) to chairs 5 & 6.... tough to beat in Kirkwood.

My only complaint is the deposit. It's quite high ($1,250) when my group rented for the weekend and it hasn't been repaid to us 10 days after our departure. I'd recommend this condo but with the caveat that the deposit is high and may take over a week to be returned. If not for that, it would be a 5 star rating.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three couples and an adult son. We are all good skiers. The unite is a 100 yard walk to ski down to chair 6. We skied back to the garage of unite via Timber Lake, crossing one small road. The kitchen and dinning room were well equipped. We had great meals in the unite. Dinning options are limited at Kirkwood. Be sure to plan well and bring all your goodies. The nearest grocery of any worth is in South Lake Tahoe. When we were there the snow was very thin. At the right time Kirkwood can have great snow. We loved the unite and would highly recommend it.

Our deposit was refunded as promised. Vara, the owner was great!
