A guest from Concord, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2015 Place is very clean, beautiful kitchen and great location - about 10-15 mins away from Northstar. The only thing I didn't like was the heater. We would put the temp on 72-75..but it only gets warm upstairs. The bedroom downstairs is ice cold (good thing we brought thermal blankets). That's about it. I'd definitely come back to this house!
Reviewed by: Karen W. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015 This was a terrific place, we will definitely return to this unit! Perfect location It's a short walk to the lake, the view from the place is of trees (not other homes), and it is easy to get to Squaw, Alpine, North Star and Truckee. Very spacious & awesome kitchen The place was larger than I expected and the kitchen should be featured in the photos! The kitchen is brand new - all LG and Bosch appliances and new cookware. It made cooking on vacation so enjoyable. The fireplace is also a heater and dried out all our wet snow clothes easily - key for happy skiers!! Parking was easy. Clean but lumpy The only downside is that while the place is very clean, some of the furniture is not going to survive long. The dining table is wobbly and the couch is dips a lot in the center. The beds were fine, the pull out couch was terrible, we had to move the mattress to the floor in the loft. Responsive host Trent was a very attentive host. He responded promptly to my comments and let us know ahead that there was a repairman coming, it was all very unobtrusive. All in all, this was a great place to stay! Thank you for making our family trip so easy.
Marianne F. from Windsor, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Good but not great. Kitchen was remodeled and fabulous. Bathrooms are in desperate need of remodel. Faucets in bathrooms very hard to use -- you really have to pull on them. BBQ also needs replacing.
Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 I think this would be a better Winter than Summer rental. It's in a good location, although a bit further from the lake than we were expecting. The downstairs area (living, kitchen and & bedroom) is very dark. Whilst this would be OK in Winter, it was a bit depressing in Summer. We didn't spend much time in the house as a result. The kitchen is new and is great- very well stocked. But overall the furnishings and bathrooms were tired and dated. The King bed mattress downstairs is extremely spongy and needs to be replaced. It gave both my husband and I such sore backs that we spent the last night in a hotel instead. Probably wouldn't recommend a stay here unless you don't need to use the downstairs bedroom. The others both had more light and more comfortable beds.
Susan A. J. from Loomis, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in July, 2015 The condo fit the needs for the family and we had a wonderful time. The place was clean, well organized, and the new kitchen was a joy. The amnesties were attractive, well-kept and we especially enjoyed the pool. The location of mid-way between Kings Beach and Tahoe City allowed us to enjoy a variety of activities, dining options, and wonderful scenery.We plan to do this again next year.
Patricia S. from North Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 Nice Townhouse! The remodeled kitchen is very nice.the home was very clean and well stocked with practically everything you need. It was really nice to be in walking distance from the beach.
A guest from nibley, UT does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015 Overall stay was pleasant. On the Sunday we arrived we let the office know of several issues---and never heard back on any of them. Very poor service. The upstairs bathroom exhaust fan is hanging off the ceiling. The upstairs pull out bed mattress is a mess, held in place by metal cables. The second bedroom mattress is in very poor condition. The hot and cold hoses to the washing machine are switched so doesn't function properly. The barbecue grill is on its last legs. Would have been good for some admin follow up during our stay to talk about these issues.
A guest from Salt lake city, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 The condo was very spacious. The kitche was newely renovated with great appliances. The pull out beds on both couches were very uncomfortable and basically not in good enough condition to sleep on. We will be returning as this condo is in a great location for the Tahoe Ironman.
Ron and Lydia J. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Since we generally use our vacation rental as a base camp for hiking, this unit served the purpose well. It was a great place to return to after a long day of hiking. Ample facilities for all to have some space to recover and capable amenities (e.g. hot tub, pool and BBQ) to make our stay very pleasant and affordable. We were able to cook in house the majority of the stay and clean up was easy. Noise levels were minimal despite lots of guests. Great base camp!
A guest from South San Francisco, California recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We really enjoyed #52! The unit was clean and would strongly recommend this unit for any large family. The unit said one sleeper sofa, however there were two sleeper sofas in the unit in addition to the 2 queens and 1 king beds. The unit could comfortably fit 8 to 10 guests. The property management were very kind and helpful.
A guest from Arroyo Grande, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Nice Place/Location. It was a bit nicer that expected. Quite a bit of work was being done while we were there, including resurfacing the parking lots...wondering why they don't do it on the office season? Some of the burners on the stove didn't work as well as the barbeque. WiFi was spotty. First morning we were there woken by very loud sawing/banging noise right next door beggining at 8 am. Finally went next door. Workman was removing some upstairs bathroom fixture. By the time I talked to him it was almost done. Called about it, was told it was OK as it was started after 8. The house rules, however, clearly stated that it was not OK for house guests to make loud noises until after 9 am?????? Other than that it was great!
A guest from Eureka, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 The condo although clean, is in need of some upkeep. The upstairs hide-a-bed couch is completely unusable for sleeping-frame totally broken and mattress beyond springy. The brackets holding handrailing to wall are broken, the lightbox in downstairs bath is coming off the wall. Had to put new airrators in 2 of facets while there to keep H2O from spraying all over. Upstairs shower we fixed so that H2O would come out of shower head.There was no extra towels for more than 5 people.Lightbulbs are burnt out and need replacing.Location is beautiful and recreation facilities are great grounds people very friendly. Would have liked the pool to be available before 10a.m. and after 7p.m. for children.Would recommend staying at this spot for sure, just maybe not condo 52.The extra sheets are very random and don't necessarily fit whats in condo.
A guest from san francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2011 Due to the heavy snowstorm when we drove up, it was a little hard to find this group of condos. The numbers were either covered with snow or not visible from the street. The parking lot was also somewhat small, but that could have been due to the snow. The condo was a great value. It was cozy, the heaters kept the place very warm, although there was a significant difference in temperature in the loft compared to the room on the first floor. The beds were pretty comfortable, and the living room had all the amenities you'd want. Kitchen was a little small and one stove burner did not work properly. There were ample silverware and dishes. Location of the condo was not particularly close to anything. There's a 7-eleven close by, but everything else is about a 5-10 minute drive. Gas fireplace. Overall, I would recommend these condos.
A guest from Cupertino, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 The townhouse was pleasant. Decent floor plan, well equipped, clean, quiet, and in good shape, overall. The unit needs a few repairs (loose breakfast bar, loose light fixture in lower bathroom, wobbly dining room table), but we enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.
RANJITH T. from MONTEBELLO, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010 Right from the time I booked the home till we vacated the place everything was very smooth and organised. It was a hassle free experience.
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2010 Condo itself is a bit dated, but overall to be expected. Kitchen was full of everything needed for the weekend, and there were TONS of games for the family! We had a great time here. Fold out beds were extremely uncomfortable, but beds were fine. Recreational area/tennis/spa/pool were great for the family.
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2010 Just enjoyed a great week in Tahoe at the Carnelian Bay Condos. The pool was a wonderful place for the whole family. The location is convenient to two of our favorite spots, the mini golf and Garwood's restaurant. I recommend it for families for sure!
Vijay R. from Santa Clara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2010 The condo was very comfortable and clean. It looks a little larger in the photo than it actually is. We had lots of room for 4 guests and I can see the place easily handling 2-3 more. The only drawback is that the parking lot is higher than condo entrance. You need to go down a moderately steep path to get to the front door. This becomes a bit of a problem when the path is icy.
A guest from San Mateo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2010 I felt that the condo was fine but I was disappointed that the pull out sofa on the top loft was so small. It was a good size for a small child. Also, one of the sofa beds had a broken spring which made it difficult to use.
Mary W. from Scotts Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2009 We rented 2 units and both 21 and 52 need updating. Actually, 52 was in better condition and the carpet was cleaner but both units need a facelift.
kristy d. from Temecula, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 just wanted to thank you again for making our trip a very nice one. Everyone really enjoyed staying at this cabin (52) it really reminded us of our old one in many many ways. there is so much detail in the place, for example the games and all the extra things that were in the cupboards. Very nice again. And I really appreciated the fact that when we had a problem or concern, it was addressed the very next day, which is a BIG PLUS. we can't wait to do it again. so thanks again, take care
A guest from san francisco, california recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2008 We stayed here last year and again this year and we'd like very much to make it a yearly tradition. I love everything about the place. I only have one small complaint. The loft used to have a set of twin beds and they were replaced by a pull out couch, a love seat, and an ottoman that becomes a very small bed. When you pull out the couch it is not only uncomfortable but it also bumps right up to the ladder leading to the top loft which just doesn't make sense. The love seat is totally in the way and as I said the ottoman is tiny. We had to play a fun game of tetris with the furniture to make room for everyone to sleep and one of my friends slept on the floor because the couch was so uncomfortable. I really wish they'd just kept the twin beds, they were MUCH more space officiant and comfortable. If they can get them back that would be really great. You really don't need couches in the loft anyway because everyone gathers downstairs in the living room. That's my suggestion, other then that I LOOOVE LOVE LOVE this place and we WILL be back! I've also recommended it to several clients (I'm a hairstylist).-Naomi H
A guest from Bandera, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2008 We loved it! It was the perfect location and the facilities were just what we needed. The staff was great and very helpful(especially Chris). The pool and hot tubs were super clean. The kids had a blast on the tennis courts. We would definitely stay at Carnelian Bay again.
Andrea C. from Redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2007 Our stay was overrall a good experience. Clean, helpful staff, however, not necessarily child-proof (large gap-railed stairways and most beds upstairs). Not much privacy for two of the twin size beds, but a nice place to stay, cute deck, close parking, and a nice large pool area.
A guest from san francisco, california recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2007 We had an amazing stay last June and we hope to go again this year! I am in the process of trying to make the arrangements and so far have gotten a good amount of help from first accommodations. Thank you!!
