About Nancy Villarreal

Our family has enjoyed coming to our condo in Indian Hills at Northstar for many years. The resort has all of the activities that one would want for a vacation. Genealogy and quilting are two of my favorite activities. This summer my grandchildren are going to teach me to horseback ride!

Nancy Villarreal purchased this townhome in 1979

Why Nancy Villarreal chose Truckee

We think our location in the Indian Hills area of Northstar is perfect! It is a short walk/ride to the Village, where you can enjoy all that Northstar offers. Then return to our quiet and relaxing townhouse. You will find this residence fully stocked with the general items you will need. You will even find a lettuce knife and bagel slicer in the kitchen! And boot/glove warmers in the entry hall. My goal is that you will be as comfortable in my place as you are in your own home!

What makes this townhome unique

All of the activities at Northstar are conveniently located. In the winter it's an easy ride on the shuttle bus to the Village! We have a small hill in front where children of all ages can enjoy our saucers and sled on the snow. Enjoy looking out at the mountains and slopes from our living room window and dining room door and balcony, while you remain warm and cozy!

clean, comfortable and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Really great location if you want to be at Northstar resort - with close access to the lake, Truckee and Donner.

The unit is clean and comfortable - and very quiet. Walking distance to the village where there is lots of activity and an amazing rec center.

Spacious, very well-maintained, great owner.

  • 5 of 5

1) Owner is very responsive. I got busy and failed to follow-up on paperwork -- owner got me back on track with "rush" processing of the pre-stay details. Yay!

2) Equipped with everything we needed for home cooking and comfortable sleeping for 8 guests (2 families). Everything worked, nothing missing, clear instructions for it all.

3) The place is a light, airy 3-level space with lovely views of the snowy outdoors. The upside: Pretty living area with open plan between kitchen and living room - nice for families- decent sound insulation across levels - can have one person studying in quiet while another watches rowdy TV. Challenge: Balancing the temp across the 3 levels -- owner provides lots of blankets including some electric, dual-control for lower levels. Just remember that heat rises and pay some attention to the thermostat settings -

you'll be fine.

4) Too far to walk to Northstar Village with your ski gear - for most people - but convenient to the shuttle stop. Our experience with parking, snow-plowing of roads, sidewalks, parking and entryways was great even though we came right after a big storm.

5) Due to the storm, we missed our first night as they had closed I-80 that Friday night. Owner was kind enough to "flex" the time window of our stay and gave us a discount (thanks!)

Would definitely stay again.

Great condo

  • 4 of 5

I have three children under 9 on Northstar Ski Teams. Needless to say we have stayed at lots of Condos in the Northstar Property over the years. This condo is clean, spacious, and equipped with everything you need. Close to Northstar shuttle. Owner very responsive. We will return.
