About Christina Bryant

We live in San Francisco with our 2 children.

Christina Bryant purchased this house in 2013

Why Christina Bryant chose Truckee

Living in San Francisco, we wanted a vacation property which allows for easy access to the outdoors for our children. I love that while cooking, I can watch the kids playing in the backyard all year round.

Wonderful, well appointed house, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home over a holiday weekend. Things we loved: the big, long dining table with enough bench seating for our group, the oversized garage that can accommodate several cars, a bunk room for the kids, a lovely backyard area leading to open space, the hot tub. We were able to bring our dog which was a huge bonus too. Highly recommend this home, we will definitely look it up next time we head to Tahoe.

Wonderful- great place for kids and animals!

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful house for both kids and animals. Our 3 kids 2.5 - 4.5 yrs had a wonderful time running around outside and playing with all the toys/ watching movies. My mother and mother in law both had a great time, but did have some difficulties with the stairs (normal amount of stairs- just one bedroom was at the bottom). Also there are no fans and in the summer it can be quite warm in the house. Overall experience was wonderful and would definitely stay again. Thanks!!!

Property is amazing...and the pictures so do-it justice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The search for the right place can be overwhelming...if you are reading this.....let your search end here if looking for a FANTASTIC multi-fam place in Donner.

We walked in and said WOW! It started with the amazing pictures on VRBO-then the owners allowing us to bring our crew of 8 in and our small beagle....the owners handle everything professionally and quickly.

The house is so well done-you will want to take care of it as your own as you will see the owners do.

The backyard opens up to a flat spot which allows you to really enjoy the outdoors...other properties nearby do not have this.

Rooms were great-esp the master bath. The downstairs room was excellent for a family with a connected bathroom and large room.

All of the kids fit in the room with bunks w room to spare.

Our little beagle loved the place as it is set up for the owners pet and we were able to use the crate in the master. Again, such a great set up!

The living room is enormous as is the kitchen and this was great for big meals and hanging out together.

The street is so quiet you will love the area for this alone. The big part for us was getting to know the Donner area....don't miss out on taking your dog to Coffeebar on Jibbom-get the Avocado Toast-mmmmm. Use the guest passes at the Rec center as it will get you daily access to the lake, tennis car and the rec ctr.

More, but overall you wont be sorry-thank you to the owners for letting us spend some time in your amazing home!!!!

See you in the winter....

Tahoe Donner is a great place for romantics and for families as well. During the summer, there are wonderful summer camps, tennis and swim lessons for the children which allows for adults to enjoy other activities like cycling, paddle boarding or just relaxing! During the winter, you can snowshoe and cross country ski nearby. Tahoe Donner ski hill is great for beginners.
