A guest from AUBURN, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2016 The bathrooms have been updated as has the downstairs bedroom, but the rest of the property is very shabby. The kitchen is unimproved and unpleasant. Most furniture is very worn and the living room sofa had a large stain across both cushions which made it seem that some child used it for a bed. One of the twin beds in the loft is completely broken down to the floor and was not useable. The dark green carpet seems like it's hiding a lot of stains. Care has not been given to the details. The throw rugs in the kitchen were so filthy we rolled them up and took them out. Small details are overlooked -- a wall clock that is stopped, burnt out lightbulbs, unwashed cooking pots. For what we paid, we felt somewhat disappointed. This place isn't terrible, and the setting of the complex, the gorgeous pool and spa made our vacation still worthwhile, but it would have been much more enjoyable in a condo where the owners actually cared of about their guests experience.
A guest from Applegate, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016 The location of this unit is perfect. Close to the beach and restaurants. I took my 5 grandchildren up to Tahoe We had plenty of space plus we loved the pool. The unit is fully stocked with everything you need. I plan to rent here again.
A guest from Los Banos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2014 The cabin was spotless. Perfect layout even with our 5 kids there was enough beds and enough space. 20 mins from Northstar. The kitchen was ok but worked for feeding everyone. I would recommend this to everyone with a large family and a budget.
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 We booked this condo just a week before leaving for a last minute summer vacation. The condo is in a really good location and Carnelian Woods is great for families due to all the amenities. The condo itself was very clean and has nice new bathrooms. The kitchen is clean but original and could really use updating (only new flooring). It is small but stocked pretty well with pots, pans, dishes, etc. Kitchen cabinets are old and unlined (liners would help give them a cleaner feel down where pots are stored). Upstairs loft bedroom could use new mattresses, but are okay. Definitely need to put your earlier risers up in loft as once someone is in the kitchen/living area below, it is difficult to sleep. Downstairs mattresses are fine. I really liked the location of the condo and Carnelian Bay is gorgeous and less crowded. I didn't love the three level floor plan, but it worked out fine. I wished there were larger decks to enjoy the outdoors from, but nothing owner can do regarding that. Upper deck is mostly filled with a large BBQ grill with room left for just one chair. We had a great vacation overall and were glad we had a nice, quiet, clean place to stay.
A guest from El Dorado Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 This condo was in need of updating, other than the bathrooms, it looks like nothing much has been updated in 20 years. The beds were comfortable, and the living space nice for visiting and socializing. The kitchen lacked a decent coffee pot, and did not have a blender, but there was plenty of plate, flatware and glasses.
Oscar P. from La Puente, California recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 Great location in North Tahoe. Amenities were an added bonus, Especially on a rainy day. Enjoyed the Par Course every morning and the Pool & Hot Tub every night. Great place to stay for a family or group vacation.
David S. from Mill Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 This was a nice property in a great location just off the water by a walking block. It is quite large in terms of bed spaces. The kitchen is small, but nice with eating area/dining room. It is nice, but not fancy. The community is very family oriented with a club house, pool (good for kids) and tennis courts. Nice Carnelian Bay location.
Larry B. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 This is a nice area at the north shore with lots of trees and just a short drive to stores & restaurants. The distance to the guest facilities (pool, jacuzzi, rec room, etc.) is not convenient for walking nor is the beach. Condo access is via a steep and uneven pathway from the parking area. The staff & management were most informative and helpful.
A guest from Rancho Cordova, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 Nice place, very comfy. We had major problems with the Dish - getting local channels took 2 hours sometimes. Frustrating. Internet access was great - very nice BBQ. Looked like they'd recently updated bathrooms and painted, consequently water was off when we arrived but Prop. Mgr was very responsive with our issues.
A guest from McLean, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2010 The king size bed needs a mattress pad and all the pillows in the unit should have pillow covers too (for hygenic reasons if nothing else). The shower head in the 2nd floor bath is WAY too small as is the microwave in the kitchen. the closets in the Master are too crowded with the owners stuff. We could barely get our clothes in there. Blankets are ratty looking and should be upgraded. These changes would greatly improve the unit....The blue bedroom is very attractive and it's nice having the 4 beds in the loft
Allison R. from Roseville, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2010 The only reason I cannot say we would stay again is was the lack of hot water. The condo is said to sleep 8 and could not accommodate 2 with the water. Sorry.
A guest from Ann Arbor, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2009 We had a wonderful vacation and found the Carnelian Bay condo to be very comfortable and pleasant. The location was great with grocery shopping and beaches nearby, the kitchen was small but adequate, and the unit was spacious and clean. The staff at the rental office was beyond helpful. They suggested great hikes and fun things to do in all types of weather. I am sure we'll come again.
Good quality for the money, but we have a few suggestions
A guest from San Jose, California recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 1) The water heater is not sufficient for a condo that accommodates 7-8 people. We had a lot of COLD showers.2) We would like to see some way of recycling - 80% of our trash could have been recycled - KEEP TAHOE BLUE!!!3) The sitting area is also not sufficient for 7-8 people - need to rework the furniture there - I know it is a small space.Overall - I think we would come back, but maybe not with 7 people if the condo isn't changed to accommodate that many except for available beds.Thanks
A guest from Daly City, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2008 We've rented a home in the Agate Bay neighborhood......which touches the Carnelian Woods Condo Development......for 32 years.........but had never stayed at the condos.We were very curious and a bit skeptical about staying there.However, we were pleasantly surprised. The condo we stayed in was immaculately clean and very well stocked. Furniture was comfortable and attractive.Truly, the only thing we missed was a big deck to hang out on, but simply adapted by spending more time at the beach , pool or taking short rides.Would highly recommend it.Also, the pool key was not in the condo when we arrived, but a call to Trent at the Rental Service, and the problem was solved within a few hours.
