About Julie Vilardi

My husband, Frank, and I have owned this home since 2003. We live in Oakland, California and have two children. We are all avid outdoor enthusiasts. Frank is a General Contractor and I am a Nurse Practitioner.

Julie Vilardi purchased this Chalet in 2003

Why Julie Vilardi chose Dollar Point

This home was originally built by my father-in-law in the 1960's. His talent with wood working is present throughout the home. His Austrian upbringing is obvious in the design themes of this custom built home. The entire home was recently updated both inside and out and gave us the opportunity to add many of our favorite amenities. My father-in-law originally chose this location for the natural beauty and peacefulness.

What makes this Chalet unique

Peace and quiet. Ability to enjoy nature just outside the front or back door. Wonderful shopping and dining close by. Easy walk to public beaches on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Close drive to world class ski areas. Hot tub on front deck. Ping Pong table and bocce ball available for summer months.

                                                                Great Location for Visiting Squaw Valley

                                                                Edwin C.

                                                                Overall very happy with our stay at this location. Used the cabin as a central hub for a weekend of snowboarding at Squaw Valley. Quick 10-15 minute drive to the mountain which makes all the difference after a tiring day. Took advantage of the hot tub which was amazing and fit a good number of people. The rooms are were all very nice, well kept and had comfortable beds. Plenty of towels, utensils, entertainment options, etc...I would definitely use this place again in the future.

                                                                Great House and Fantastic Owner

                                                                Bruce C.Sacramento, CA

                                                                This house accommodated our large gathering of 14 people for a winter wonderland stay. While there wasnt much snow until the last day, we all fit very nicely in this house and it has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Middle Tahoe. The Owner is a fantastic individual, and was very easy to work with and get ahold of before our trip even began. Besides all that the price to rent this home compared to similar homes in the area was very reasonable.

                                                                Great place for big families or friends

                                                                Cassidee S.

                                                                We had a lovely time here. The beds and bathrooms were plentiful, spacious, and clean. The location is fantastic. The hot tub was quite the luxury too. The shed for ski gear came in handy. The layout is a bit wonky with the two separate living rooms, making it challenging when everyone wanted to Be in the same space. The keyless entry didn’t work, but the hide a key did thankfully. Julie was easy to communicate with. I’d happily go back.

                                                                Cozy Cabin!

                                                                The cabin was definitely cozy and accommodated our group of 16. There was plenty of space and the cabin was equipped for all our needs. The location was perfect considering we planned a trip to Northstar. Everyone had an amazing time! Julie was also very helpful before and after the stay. Highly recommended! Thank you again for an amazing stay!!

                                                                Loved our stay, we already suggested this place to all of our friends and family.

                                                                Perfect cabin for our (big) family ski trip!

                                                                The cabin fit our needs perfectly. We had 4 adults and 4 children, and had room to spare (thanks to the 4 bunk beds!). The location description is accurate, and we were even surprised by the size of some of the rooms, and the space we had.

                                                                The owner was very friendly and super responsive in all of our interactions. We would definitely stay here again!
