Hot tub- broken, bad hours at lodge/ community center
Reviewed by: Kristin J. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2017 Most dissapointed by the fact that the hot tub was broken for most of our stay and the staff was unfriendly.
Cristian O. from Francisco Alvarez, XX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2017 BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO ENJOY FAMILY VACATION. EVERYTHING WAS ADAPTED FOR US TO SPEND AN AMAZING AND RELAXING TIME. CLEAN, WARM AND COMFORTABLE BEDS.
A guest from Davis, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2017 The title defines this condo, figuratively and literally. This condo has so much potential but did not deliver. The condo provided six beds and two baths but not much more.The condo has a very small hot water heater so you need to pace your showers, dish washing and laundry. The kitchen has minimal utensils. It could benefit from a spatula. Toss the tea pot as the enamel on the interior is chipping off. Speaking of chips, toss the chipped plates too. Cooking in the condo reminded me of camping.The condo could benefit from a good scrubbing. Clean the splattered food from wall behind the stove. Clean the carpets. Clean the food from the pots and pans. Better yet, replace the pots and pans as they have seen their better days.I recommend that a light bulb be added to the empty socket in the closet and replace the burnt out bulb above the shower. This condo does not have WIFI which was tough for two teenagers. The management actually recommended we log into the neighbor?s WIFI. The condo does have a few games but bring your own dice as Yahtzee doesn?t have any.
Brenda W. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2016 My husband and I spent 6 nights in the condo and loved our time there. The condo has everything needed for that "home away from home" feeling. No wifi, which was a drag as we had no phone signal (darned Sprint!) We did have trouble with the gas bbq, so were unable to grill - oh well, guess we'll have dinner out tonight! It is less than a 1/2 mile to the beach (wear swim shoes for the rocks), and close to both Kings Beach and Tahoe City. Make sure to eat at the Old Post Office at least once - great crab cakes bennie. We will definitely be back!
Kelly T. from El Dorado Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 The condo is in a great location, close to the lake, close to Tahoe City. The only draw back was, upstairs room is very hot, not much airflow, and the trees continually dropped things onto the metal roof which made it a bit difficult to sleep. Over all pretty comfortable.
A guest from Mt. Hermon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2016 This unit was very comfortable. There are lots of places to unpack, a layout that worked well for us with small kids, a well-stocked kitchen (with dishes/pots,etc.) and the location is amazing. Like most of the units we've stayed in, there are not enough outlets for the modern world, and not enough lighting, so the bedroom especially was pretty dark.
Cameron M. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Great location with all the amenities. Carnelian Bay is ideal for us and our interests. There is a nice dog beach down the street from the condo and nice little cafe. The cafe also has water sports rentals. The condo complex was great, amazing pool, hot tubs, rec room, bocce, volleyball, tennis, has it all. The condo is dated, but served the purpose. Some minor updates would make this condo support the rest of the area and environment.
Patricia C. from Grass Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Pros: This unit was very comfortable and clean with a great location. The pool was fantastic. Beds very comfortable. Cons: BBQ propane ran out before could cook our dinner so were disappointed. TV didn't work properly. We called the management and they were very professional and helpful, telling us that the propane worked when they checked it (it's the size of a camping one). They sent a TV person out to fix the TV but then only got 1 station on the main TV, no reception on the upstairs, full reception on the tiny TV in the downstairs front one. Overall, a bit of a hassle and disappointment during our 3 day stay.
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 Overall the property was good with in near to the lake Tahoe and Cozy. Electrical lights near the dinning area and living room weren't functioning. Need to fix them. There is no WiFi and out dated television sets. Please improve them
A guest from Fremont, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 Came here for a ski trip with wife and two other families. A total of six people. First one should know they give out only two parking permits. Any additional cars can park at the rec center. In retrospect, it looked fine to park there at the rec center. Not many cars there. But we didn't know. And we were arriving around mid-night. To avoid any complications, the other two families carpooled in a hatchback. The heater was really noisy. My wife and I stayed in the downstairs bedroom. When the heater was on, we felt strong warm air coming into the room and it was dry. The fan in the bathroom next to our room was too loud. Sounded almost like the garbage disposal. Image at night when we have to go to the bathroom. The kitchen was OK. The appliances were working. The dining area was good enough for us.It doesn't have WiFi at this unit. The description was clear. For someone who always had WiFi at vacation rental properties, it was easy to miss it.
Scott i. from Santa Barbara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2016 Had a great time in this condo, it was everything we needed. However, my teenage son did laugh at how old and small the TV's are.
A guest from Lodi, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Location ideal, plenty to do within a 10 min drive or less. Not in walking distance to the beach. Could do with some upgrading of appliances and décor. Kitchen garbage can way to small.Staff communication great!
A guest from Santa Barbara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2015 This condo worked out very well for our small group (3 people). We especially appreciated the proximity to the parking area. Beds were good, living room was comfortable and the kitchen was adequately equipped. The only objection we had was that it was impossible to turn the heater off. Just when the loft cooled down at night the heater kicked in!
Walter p. from san Francisco, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 Had a great time with the family at this place. Spacious, beautiful, comfortable, and memorable. I'd be willing to return and stay there. My only suggestion is to not get there at night when there is no light, because it was very hard to find the condos. It took us nearly an hour and we needed to ask neighbors for help, but they were very friendly. Other than that everything was perfect.
Zachary O. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2014 We were a group of 4 adults and a baby and the unit for us was spacious and comfortable, nicely located a short walk from the lake. If I had to complain it would be the lack of in unit amenities (e.g., no hot tub), older furniture, and the small outdated TV.
Joshua S. from San Francisco, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 After staying at a number of condos at Carnelian Woods, we booked #45 as the price was right. However, unlike the other properties, this condo didn't appear to be owner-occupied - it was clean and functional but just didn't feel lived in, as if it were just a large hotel room. Kitchen could use an update, particularly the dishwasher. Don't get me wrong, experience was satisfactory, but not as nice as some of the units. We agreed as a group that if we stayed at Carnelian Woods again we would pay attention more to the unit pictures.
A guest from Petaluma, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014 The unit we rented was nice, nothing spectacular. Very comfortable for 5 on a skiing weekend, but a bit of a drive to the slopes at Boreal. Kitchen amenities were lacking and the manager at the office didn't expect us. Other than that it was pretty much as expected. Reasonable rate. Clean, comfortable condo. Proximity to the lake which is always fabulous. 3.5 stars
A guest from lafayette, california recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 The hot tubs were brand new and very nice. I have stayed here often because i like the location, large pool and tennis courts.
