About Mike Straus

We grew up spending our summers on lakes (in Michigan and New Jersey) and wanted to have that same experience for our future family here in California. Currently residents in Marin County after having formally lived in San Francisco, we wanted to have our lake experience here and Lake Tahoe was a natural fit as we have enjoyed in in summers and winters for years since we each moved to California.

Mike Straus purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Mike Straus chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

It was important for use to have a place on a lake as we both spent our summers with lake living growing up, and we love Tahoe for Skiing in the winter and all the great outdoor activities in the summer. We wanted to be in North Lake Tahoe as we both loved Tahoe City and all the North shore has to offer. We wanted to be close to Tahoe City (within biking distance) and near both the Lake and bike path.

We found this great unit in Lake Forest Glen and not only was it close to Tahoe City and the lake, but this unit was near the back Bristlecone st exit making it easy to hop on a bike to the bike path or walk to the lake at Lake Forest Beach or the great hidden gem of Skylandia Park. We also loved the great remodel and mountain cabin theme inside and the south facing deck with plenty of sun all day long! We love staying here and we hope you will too!

What makes this townhome unique

The south facing deck gets lots of sun all day and is a great place to enjoy morning coffee. Inside the pine trim and log furniture give it a truly Tahoe feeling! Gas fireplace makes livingroom warm and inviting.

The complex has four tennis courts, two pools, a hot tub, and sauna. One of the pools is adult only and the other is the family pool. Lake Tahoe is a short walk away with Lake Forest beach and Skylandia Park and beach near by. The Bike bath into tahoe city is very close outside of the complex as well. The Coast Guard boat ramp is right off lake Forest rd, so if you are trailing a boat you can launch without even going to the main road.

Where do I start with this 5-star review?

  • 5 of 5

This property deserves a fabulous review and I would give it 10 stars if I could. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and the condo was well stocked with everything needed during our stay. It was exceptionally clean and everything was of high quality such as the beds/linens, appliances, pots/pans, and utensils, etc. The very nice patio with furniture and umbrella allowed us to sit outside every afternoon. I appreciated Mike (the owner) for immediately responding to the few questions I had during our stay. This was a special trip with five of my friends and having this beautiful place for four days near the beach in one of the most beautiful places in America made it a wonderful and memorable experience. This property is so exceptional that I will be renting it again and highly recommend it for others to rent.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 6 nights and had overall a great experience. There were no problems with the house, the kitchen is extremely well equipped, beds are comfortable and there are plenty of spare blankets, pillows, towels, etc. The only problem was that we had 4 young kids with us (3,4,5 and 12yo) and the living room/kitchen was way too small for this company. The dining table was shaky so there were spils all over it after meals. But this was the only problem, generally we liked the house and will definitely book it again if we'd have a chance to come with the same number of the adults.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good stay and am sorry you had a problem with the dinning table shaking, but thank you for brining this to my attention. I recently was up there and inspected the table and it was shaking due to the bolts working loose. I have tightened the bolts and it is no longer shaking. I hope you choose to come back again.

Comfortable and very well taken care of.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The home is very comfortable and well appointed. Everything we needed was available. And Mike was very accommodating about helping us figure out the fireplace. Since we try to do a girls weekend each year we will very likely stay there again.

Convenient location; had everything we needed/wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe and we were very pleased with the accommodations. There were only four of us, so there was plenty of room to spread out. We cooked all of our meals in and the kitchen was well stocked (and then some!) with all the basics, pots and pans, utensils, etc. Beds were comfortable. Ceiling fans would have been nice, but there were plenty of portable fans for all the rooms. The lake is a beautiful, five-minute walk away; pool and hot tub close, but not so close we could hear it. The complex is well maintained and quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a nice stay and hope you will come back as a repeat guest in the future. Thank you for your feedback about ceiling fans. I agree that would be a good addition, particularly in the living room and master bedroom. I will add that to my list of improvement projects.

North Lake Tahoe is a must go destination. This property is 1.6 miles from Tahoe city (right along a great bike path), which is home to a number of great restaurants, bars and shops. The Lake and a couple great beaches are a short walk, bike or drive in the Lake Forest/Tahoe city area. Great mountain biking and hiking are a short distance away. The Condo complex has great amenities and tons to do in the area!
