Wonderful location and clean, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My 3 young adult children and I stayed for a week at this condo, and it was everything we wanted....quiet, well located, and very comfortable. The views are incredible, and the lake was beautiful. The condo is literally right on the lake - with a private dock and small sandy private beach, perfect for swimming, kayaking, and relaxing. The stargazing from the dock at night was perfect. Finally, renting and use instructions were exceptionally easy and well organized. We will definitely be back!

Ski Lease Winter 2016-2017

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this condo for this past winter because I worked as a ski instructor at Northstar. The location was awesome with all the weather because there was no summit I needed to drive over to get to work. Also close enough to downtown Truckee with fun bars and amazing restaurants. The view of this condo is obviously amazing because it is literally right on the lake with our own private dock. Beautiful to watch sunsets every night. Parking was never a problem during the winter time, but not everyone was home (especially with all the snow we received). The neighbors are incredible and helped me out when my car got stuck in the snow a couple of times and would help us shovel our walkway. This little condo was so amazing for the winter I lived there and I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to experience living on a lake in Tahoe.

San Bruno, Ca

Smart and clean

  • 5 of 5

All of the small details are covered in this unit from the kitchen to the towels and linens. Beds are comfy and the location is perfect for our needs. The owner even called upon checkout to touch base and review our stay. Sugar Bowl is so close! The view of the lake is also very, very nice! We will be back.
