Debbie C. from Concord, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2017 We loved this location - perfect distance to both Northstar and Squaw/Alpine. Nearby to local eateries and a grocery store. Quiet and plenty of room for everyone. Super clean and warm! We didn't want to leave.
A guest from Cape Coral, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2016 This wasn't the property we had reserved but because the property that we were planning to stay in had an issue the day we were going to checkin, we were given this property which was comparable. Overall it worked for the 5 adults we had in our group. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of sleeping areas.Lake tahoe in the summer gets warm in the days and cools off dramatically at night which did help the 3rd floor loft sleeping area since it didn't not have a working ceiling fan since these units do not have air conditioning. The kitchen cabinets and drawers are in need of an update. All the appliances worked well though.And like others have commented both bathrooms have tub showers and for some reason the shower heads are located low. Neither bathroom have been updated either but everything was in working order.Enjoyed the views from the balconies towards the lake.
Denise D. from Fargo, ND recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016 This is our 5th year in a row at Sierra Bella. We had 4 generations enjoy the condo this year. The lake view from the balcony and master bedroom is beautiful, the crisp mountain air is refreshing and the pine trees are beautiful. The condo was again very clean and maintained, the new bedroom mattresses are very comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped with pots/pans/dishes etc. and with a large family, the two bathrooms, dishwasher, BBQ, washer and dryer and WiFi are all appreciated. The staff at the lodge are very helpful and the amenities of the beautiful pool area, spa, ping pong, basketball, tennis, sand volleyball, pool table and hiking areas were enjoyed by all. We returned home refreshed already planning for our next visit to North Lake Tahoe and this lovely condo.
Mary P. from Grafton, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 This condo was perfect for the amount of time we were there. Everything was clean and the view spectacular. However, the kitchen could use a makeover- very outdated - hated the dishwasher - so 1970s.The showerheads in the bathrooms were too low - I'm 5'4 and had to duck to wash my hair. Maybe put the showerhead on the drywall and not in the shower fiberglass unit. Can't remember if the tub had a stopper in case you have young children who want a bath. We ate at GarWoods Restaurant just down the hill from the condo. Pricey but great food. We also ate Zia Lina Ristorante (Tahoe City) - best Italian food in Tahoe; tacos at Taco's Jalisco, Truckee; Bocce ball and wine at Truckee River Winery (great wine there).I recommend this condo for large families as well. Kid décor in loft area.
Sue O. from Oakley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We stayed with our family of seven, including a teenager and four young boys. The space was roomy enough for us. The upstairs "bedroom" is an open loft which made it hard for the little ones to fall asleep while we were still up but when they were tuckered out from sledding all afternoon, it was a little easier for them. We didn't find the recliner or the bed in the master bedroom incredibly comfortable but they were sufficient. It's not new or luxurious but it is very clean and the views are amazing. We had everything we needed for our week's stay. We loved the location too which is quiet and off the road a bit. There is a small free sledding hill at the golf course in Incline Village and another free public sledding hill around the lake at the 28/50 split in Nevada (30 minute drive). We didn't go there this time, but we enjoyed Gar Woods Restaurant, just be prepared to pay $$$. The rec room was fun but we were sad that even the pool table required money and the Air Hockey game was out of order. Check-in and check-out were easy and we would probably stay again. For the price we paid, we were very happy!
Tracey M. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 The whole family enjoyed staying here. It was so quiet and the view from the upstairs living room was gorgeous. Everything was lovely and clean. Would come back and stay again.
A guest from Citrus Heights, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 While the view is outstanding and the accommodations mostly comfortable, this unit is in sore need of an update. The kitchen, in particular, was a source of frustration. Cabinets were hanging off the hinges and lacking in basic utensils. The I will not stay in this unit agin unless it is refurbished.
Relaxing and fun family retreat in North Lake Tahoe
A guest from Fargo, ND recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 This is our 4th family vacation at this wonderful Carnelian Bay condo called Sierra Bella. Three generations of our family again enjoyed the comfortable, spacious condo that sleeps 8. We rested well on the new bed mattresses and other upgraded amenities. The barbecue worked well on the deck overlooking Lake Tahoe and the kitchen was well-stocked with cooking pans, cooking utensils, and dishes. The office staff at Carnelian Bay were very friendly and we enjoyed the beautiful pool, bocce ball course, basketball, ping-pong and tennis courts. Walks in the woods were breathtaking and refreshing. Our family also enjoyed picnicking at King?s Beach, kayaking in the early morning hours on the lake and walking the Nature Trails along the Truckee River. We are already talking about next year! I highly recommend this wonderful condo for your next family vacation.
Edelwina G. from Pleasant Hill, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 Place is great with family with kids. Nice location and closed to everything including beach and hikes. Lots of things to do around Tahoe. The place could use an upgrade in furnitures like the dishwasher is old and it doesnt clean the dishes and big plates dont fit. The shower stall r too short and its hard to get in if u are tall. The bed in the 2nd bedroom is very uncomfortable, my back hurt. I felt the spring of the mattress. The cleaning people didnt arriveed to clean until 4:00 pm which is when we checked in. They had to rush cleaning the place and left the laundry in washing machine for the bed sheets. But over all the place is great for family vacation. Nice club house - has pool, hot tub, video game room and pool table for kids. We got the view on our deck too.
A guest from Corte Madera, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We had a really nice few days staying here. So conveniently located and clean and simple. Everything we needed. Just two suggestions:The town house needs a new can opener! I almost sliced my finger open using the vintage one there. Was even considering going to buy one for the place it was so bad. Also, the video games in the game room could be a little updated. Not too fun so the kids were disappointed with that.All in all, great place. Would definitely stay here again.Thank you
A guest from Fargo, ND recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Our 3-generation-family has comfortably stayed in this condo for the past three years. We were pleasantly surprised to recently find a new pull-out couch in the living room and a new TV in the loft. The kitchen continues to be well-equipped; the propane BBQ worked well and we all enjoyed the many amenities of a great pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball court & woods. The downsides included a very uncomfortable mattress in the first bedroom and a slow & unreliable internet system. The reservation process went well. Check-in went well; however, it would have been helpful to have been given the tennis court entry code at check-in. We had a great vacation!
A guest from Newsolden, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 Place was clean and location was great, nice view of the lake from the balcony. Dealing with Property Management was easy and they were very professional. Had an issue with dishwasher and could not use but wasn't a real big deal. Would definitely recommend and will most likely stay there again if available on my next visit.
A guest from San Ramon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 Everything was good except the management . Left several message and never heard back. I was concerned what if it was an emergency? There was no one to be found.
Property Manager Response: Response from First Accommodations After hours emergencies are responded to immediately. After hours non-emergency calls are returned the following business day.
Great location - very convenient for northern ski resorts, especially Northstar, Homewood and Apine
Sharon F. from Pinecrest, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2011 We enjoyed our stay. Snow clearance was excellenctboth on the road and the pathway. Property was as the pictures showed with a nice view and reasonable furnishings. The kitchen is compact and there were not enough chairs for 7 in dining area but we used outside chairs instead. A couple of things did not work but the property manager had these fixed straight away. The kids loved the loft area.
A guest from Glendale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2010 The view from the property was very nice. The location also was good. I would recommend to replace the bbq grill, as it lived it?s days.
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 This is a nice place nested in the woods. The complex is well maintained and a short drive to Kings beach and Tahoe city. The unit is in good shape and very clean, and has a nice lake view. The kitchen is well equipped. It could use a bigger heater as the hot water runs out after a couple of showers. The local beach is more of a river rock beach than a sandy one. The complex pool is heated to a comfortable temperature, though sun is blocked by the surrounding trees most of the afternoon. Overall, I think this condo is a great place for one or two families to have a relaxing vacation.
Paul Z. from Corte Madera, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2010 although the unit is clean, it is showing some wear and tear and should probably be updated, cabinet door knobs stripped.
Paul L. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2010 The property is very nice and well maintained. The one immediate issue (broken DVD player) was remedied in 1 day. Would like to report that the exhaust fans are loose and noisy, especially downstairs is enough to wake people up.
A guest from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2009 The condo was fantastic. Spacious, well apportioned, very clean, with plenty of warm blankets and kitchen supplies. The only downside was that the heater wasn't working properly when we arrived, but after a quick call to the property manager, someone came out immediately and repaired! Property is gorgeous, with lots of beautiful places to explore and a fantastic view of the lake. Would definitely recommend to a friend, and stay in the future if we ever travel to Tahoe again!
A guest from Media, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 The overhead fan was not working and the weather was quite warm... The loft TV was not hooked up... Other than that... everything was pretty good....
Property Manager Response:
The ceiling fan has been replaced. The TV in the loft is for movies only not cable TV.
Ronald J. from Sunnyside, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 Knowing layout and size of main area, having to use 2 flights of stairs would have been nice to know for us older folks
