The forest views and beautiful living room and kitchen sets this property apart from many. Relax in front of the stone fireplace, and watch a movie on the flat panel TV. There's a queen size bed in the main bedroom on the entry floor. The second floor has two twins and a half-bathroom. There is also a gas BBQ on the patio balcony available for year round use, and the property comes with free Wifi.

Hong Z. from SAN RAMON, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 Nicely maintained townhouse. Very convenient to the ski sites. Property Management is very professional before, during and after the stay.
Ralph Y. from Roseville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 Place was clean with a great kitchen for cooking with plenty of room, tools, and plates. The only knock was the cable tv that would not work. Great pool and spa area and loved the location. Way better than a hotel.
A guest from Castelldefels, Spain recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Lovely cozy, modern duplex in a very peaceful setting surrounded by woods. Soft thick pile carpet, modern kitchen , comfortable beds, log fire... Nice pool facilities and games room. Short distance from the lake and some dining options.
A guest from Mountain View, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 23 days in July, 2015 We have been renting this unit for at least last couple years or so, typically in spring/summer and winter. We have enjoyed the unit, which is still reasonably OK but it clearly shows signs of neglect. Cleanliness of carpets is far from desired. Kitchen is equipped but barely for family cooking, we typically bring our own cooking utensils etc. Bunch of minor but noticeable things like heating vent cover by the entrance, which has not been fixed perhaps at least a year etc. Balcony looks like it has been cleaned long time ago. Overall, still perhaps okay but clearly could use some TLC besides just the-end-of-stay cleaning.
Viviana A. from BUENOS AIRES, BUENOSAIRES recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in March, 2015 The property is very comfortable and clean.It is very well equipped.Not have any cleaning element.The heating is very noisy.The hot water was not enough for 4 people.It is located near the lake but away from the malls.A few miles there is a supermarket.We have had good attention by property managers.
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 We had an outstanding time at Carnelian Woods over Labor Day. The unit is in the perfect location- walking distance to the Lake, good restaurants and Mini Golf. The unit itself is immaculate and the perfect size for 4.
A guest from Lincoln, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2014 We enjoyed our stay at this condo. My family and I especially enjoyed the community pool/spa and other amenities. The condo itself had been remodeled and we felt right at hone here. My only complaint would be that the queen bedding seemed not fresh and older. But, having the large lift space and sofa bed too worked for the family. It was a nice time for us.
Lori O. from Henderson, NV does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 We had two minor appliance issues. Impressed with the same day response from the property manager. One call was even on a Sunday. We will Definetly use this property management for our future rentals.
Too small a TV for otherwise a well decorated but small 1 bdrm
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 Vacation rental is good alternative to hotels stay for family vacations provided you're ok if some amenities and conveniences are missing, prepare to be surprised mostly for better and sometimes for worse.
A guest from Kenmore, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 The impeccably clean well appointed condo was comfortable and welcoming. Bedding was recent and linens of good quality & plentiful. Overall I would recommend and/or stay here again. However there were a few quirks. First, with no grate in the fireplace, it is nearly impossible to light a fire, rendering the fireplace merely decorative. Second, while the hot tubs were GREAT (warm, clean) no pool available in winter :-( The location of the property is PERFECT if you are planning on skiing northern Lake Tahoe Resorts. Its about 20 minutes from either Diamond Peak, Northstar, Alpine Meadows & Squaw
Olga N. from Alameda, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2011 Perfect place for a couple with 2 children. Spotlessly clean, very well maintained, everything in working order. The association amenities (swimming pool, hot tubs) are very well kept as well. the property management was very professional, gave us a good advice on paddle boat rent/ sandy beach. If i come back to Tahoe, I will definetely come to that same place. Happy customer.
A guest from Berkeley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 GREAT, comfortable place w/ everything we needed, parking spaces were plowed so we got in & out easily despite the big dump of snow, also enjoyed the rec center sauna, jacuzzi, wi-fi and reading by the great fireplace. Only 2 complaints which moved my rating from 5 down to 4 stars: 1. The heating was noisy and kept me up at night - also the vents blow directly over the kitchen counter where we sat to eat; 2. there was only enough hot water for 2 showers, which was a problem since we were a party of 5 (one less than the max of 6 allowed). Probably no way to fix that, but just knowing is helpful so you can plan very short showers, staggered schedules and showering at the rec center.
A guest from ELK GROVE, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 ONLY ONE TV IN LIVING ROOM... I WOULD RECCOMEND FOR THEM TO INSTALL ONE MORE TV IN THE BEDROOM. ALSO THE BEDROOM NEEDS MORE LIGHTS. .OVERALL EVERY TIME I GO TO TAHOE, I WILL STAY HERE!!
Carnelian Bay Condo. We were very satisfied with the unit we selected, the place was very well done from the front door to the g
Randy B. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2010 The condo had very comfortable furniture, a remodeled kitchen with granite, new appliances, and all you need for meal prep. We liked the quiet location for exploring the Tahoe area. Check in and out was very smooth, like coming home. We will be back!
Lucy C. from Sunnyvale, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2010 The property stank of smoke and while the property manager was willing to move us we'd already moved in and were tired and didn't want to repack and move out; also while the kitchen had been upgraded and was gorgeous the living room was so stuffed with furniture 4 people couldn't move around in it and there was only seating on couch for 3. Between the couch, the barstools , the throw pillows have to move off couch to sit, table and chairs, and coffee table there was no floor space at all. Linens in the bedroom were old, worn and mismatched - not what you'd expect when paying for a delux accomodation. Remodel in kitchen and downstairs bath were nice. Living room furniture in good shape. Bedroom and loft furniture worn.
Property Manager Response: Response from First Accommodations A previous renter mismanaged the fireplace, which drew smoke into the property. It's in the process of being remedied.
A guest from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2009 We would say the only thing to comment on is the lack of cleaning products to use. As we were asked to ensure the condo was clean when departing, it would be good to have a supply of additional sponges, gloves and a multi purpose cleaner.Also the toaster did not work efficiently and the selection of knives were all blunt and unsafe for use.We hope this is constructive feedback and thank you very much once again.
A guest from Carmichael, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 Very happy with the property although the number of burned out lightbulbs in the unit was irritating. No spare bulbs!
Kristy H. from Fair Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2009 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect family vacation. Not only were walking distance from the beautiful Lake Tahoe, but the community clubhouse offered hours of fun (pool table, video games, air hockey table, ping pong table, childrens slide, swimming pool, etc.) The only negative comment that I could give, is the clubhouse closes at 9PM, too early for vacationers. That disappointment hardly made a dent in our delight in having found this great gem of a vacation spot! We will return.
A guest from High Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 The condo was awesome. Very clean, set up well and enjoyable. I would most definitely stay there again. Three minor issues should be corrected: 1)the contact number in my printout and in the notebook at the condo was not inservice 2) there was no mention of a parking permit being needed in my instruction packet from the internet nor in the notebook in the condo (we received a note on the windshield and had to go to the clubhouse for the permit) 3. there seems to be a wireless connection but the clubhouse person said it was silly but no one knew the code and you are paying for it! It would have been really nice to be able to get internet service. That would be the only reason I might look elsewhere the next time I am in Lake Tahoe. Again the condo was fabulous except for those minor issues.
Property Manager Response:
Just to clarify some of the information, all renters receive information regarding parking and all phone numbers are in service. These properties are individually owned and not all properties come with internet. This property does not come with internet.
Three day stay over the 4th of July at ID# CW038, Carnelian Bay, Ca.
Raymond P. from Myrtle Creek, Oregon recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 I would definitely recommend this townhouse to anyone. Everything was "as advertised" and even more. I would absolutely stay here again.
A guest from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2009 The townhome was great. It was clean and the staff was very helpful with the process. My first time visiting Tahoe was a great experience. The only thing I didn't like is that they didn't have a stereo.
Lyudmila M. from Burlingame, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2008 Thank you very much. It was nice staying which we liked very much. Maybe I would consider my vacation there next year.Best wishes, Lyudmila
John S. from Redondo Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2008 It was much better than expected. It was my first rent on VRBO and very happy with how it wen. I will absolutely rent again.
Pamela J. from Roseville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2007 Last summer, at the last minute, we attempted to find a reasonably priced condo in a wonderful location in North Lake Tahoe to spend July 4th with our two children. We were happily surprised to find Carnealian Woods Condos, which we had driven past for many years, but never had the pleasure of staying at. The condo we ended up renting was beautifully furnished and had recently been remodeled. The pool and facilities were perfect for our two young children. Even better, was the fact that we could walk to the lake and the restaurant, Garwoods to enjoy fireworks on the lake! We will definately be back!
