Comfortable condo w/ shared hot tub & pool - close to skiing & golf!

In search of a convenient and well-appointed home for your next winter or summer getaway to the Sierras? At this two-bedroom Truckee condo, you'll enjoy a private balcony with forest views, a free local shuttle service, and easy access to the beautiful amenities of Northstar California Resort.

This two-level condo is located in the heart of Northstar, just one mile from the base of the Village Express Chair Lift and the Highlands and Big Springs Express Gondolas. In the summer months, you'll be one mile from Northstar Stables, two miles from Northstar California Golf, eight miles from Kings Beach, and 12 miles from the scenic shores of Donner Lake.

The NPOA Recreation Center is also just one mile away, offering year-round and seasonal swimming pools, a summer splash pad, hot tubs, a fitness center, saunas, a tennis center, an adult clubhouse, and a kids' game room with Ping-Pong, foosball, air hockey, and billiards for a small daily fee.

With exposed wood and slate accents, lofty beamed ceilings, and plush carpeting, the living space is full of alpine character. Curl up by the wood-burning fireplace on snowy winter evenings, use the WiFi to track the latest ski conditions, and challenge your kids to an Xbox tournament on the flatscreen cable TV.

Prepare snacks, appetizers, or homemade meals in the elegant kitchen, where you'll find slate floors, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Brew a pot of freshly ground coffee, use the mixer and waffle iron to whip up a morning treat, and sit down for breakfast at the dining table for six.

Stack the plates in the dishwasher and retreat to the private balcony to soak in the morning view - you'll also find patio seating and a gas grill for summer barbecues.

With two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms, this Northstar condo will sleep as many as five guests. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and access to an outdoor terrace, while the guest room has a set of twin-over-full bunkbeds that are perfect for kids.

The Hurd Hacienda also offers a private washer and dryer, ensuring that your wardrobe is ready for skiing, snowboarding, golfing, or hiking.

Whether you're in search of winter slopes or summer lakeside fun, Northstar offers one of the most convenient locations in all of North Lake Tahoe. Hop on the free shuttle each morning to explore the resort's 100 trails, seven terrain parks, 20 lifts, and 3,170 skiable acres.

You can also play a scenic round of golf, ride horses at the Northstar Stables, lounge on the sand at Kings Beach, practice your serve at the tennis center, or spend the day in the pools and hot tubs at the NPOA Recreation Center.

Great getaway home to spend a few days in the mountains. It had all the facilities one needs. Spacious, clean and all utilities were working properly.
Location was good close to amenities and places of interest in the Truckee area.
We would certianly stay here again without even thinking about it.
Ligaya P. Mar 2020
This is a great family get away, close to town, Lake Tahoe and very conveniently close to the Northstar resort.

Wood burning fireplace

One of the nicest condos we've rented at any ski area.
Steven C. Jun 2019
Very nice and clean.
Tom H. Jun 2019
Perfect for a summer visit. Area sparsely populated at that time so the silence was terrifically relaxing. The condo itself is roomy and clean. Still was cold in the mornings but the heated floors in bathrooms and kitchen did the trick. Obviously an awesome location for winter activities as you are right next to Northstar, but secluded by a hill. Anytime of year the location is perfect as you are only 5 miles from downtown Truckee and many nice golf courses nearby.

This was one of the nicest condos I have ever rented.

This was my first time staying in a Vacasa home and I am hooked. This home was great for my family of three. I like the layout, the heated floors, the high ceilings, and the view of the trees. I would definitely recommend this home.

Wonderful condo perfect for our family of 4!

well equipped. beautiful neighborhood.
Heather L. May 2018
Pros- the location this property is great. You can pick up the shuttle near by to take you to the Village. The two outdoor decks are nice as you face the woods. It's nice that there is a washer and a dryer. The heated floors in the kitchen and the master bathroom are very nice
Cons- walls are thin can hear everything. Cleaning crew was not very good. Cobwebs all throughout the house and lots of it. Fingerprints left from previous guests on mirrors and glass. It's advertised that there is a waffle iron there is none. Also advertises a Wii unfortunately only one controller. Also has an Xbox but no controllers. Really is no use if everything is not there. House is dark the lighting is very low. The baking pans really need to be replaced it looks like it's been used for the last 20 years as well as the cooking utensils. Beds are like sleeping on a slab of cement. Very uncomfortable. Pillows are as fluffy as a napkin.
Kristin S. Apr 2018
Location and access to Northstar amenities were great! Arrived just after 4 pm and the condo had not yet been cleaned, but cleaning crew arrived, apologized for being late and they were done in about 45 mins. Kitchen was adequately stocked and had everything we needed. Mattresses on all beds seem to be dated and very uncomfortable, we all had trouble sleeping soundly.
Elliott N. Mar 2018
This place was great for our family. Condo was clean with comfortable beds and nice amenities. I would highly recommend.
Kelly T. Feb 2018
The condo was a great location near the Village at NorthStar. When we arrived the beds were left unmade so we had to put the sheets on, which was unexpected. Everything was clean and in working condition with limited kitchen supplies. Overall nice condo, but small. It worked for our short 2 night stay.
Xenia S. Feb 2018
It's a lovely property, quiet, secluded but if you want the buzz of the village it's not here, there is a shuttle bus service which takes you there for skiing.
Brooke G. Feb 2018
This home was very nice for two couples. Getting around the town is super easy with the shuttle. All staff is extremely friendly. Property is very well kept. Highly recommend staying here!
Desiree O. Jan 2018
The place was lovely, the location was just down two streets from the lifts/resort.
Make sure there is snow before you go. We were lucky to get a beautiful snow storm the night we arrived, otherwise it would have been only on the ski slopes/man-made snow mostly. The main bed was very hard and squeaky.
The neighbors were drunk and noisy on Friday and Saturday nights and their children were running in the dark in the snow. Only drawback.
Luiz A Fernandes L. Dec 2017
Great location and the staff is very kind!
Michelle N. Oct 2017
This place was a perfect location for being able to go to Squaw Valley, Truckee and North Star. The heated floors in the kitchen and main bathroom were my favorite add on! The fireplace was perfect for the chilly nights!
Joseph C. Aug 2017
Overall would stay again- no bathroom upstairs, ants in kitchen and lighting in bedrooms was poor, no tissues.
Cheng-Feng T. Aug 2017
We like this property. Well-maintained, clean, and convenient. My family had a great time.
Susan S. Jul 2017
GREAT 2 bedroom condo with 1 1/2 bathrooms, well situated in the Gold Bend development. Nice furniture, updated granite kitchen, views from 2 decks.
Robert M B. Apr 2017
Beautiful resort, comfy accommodations & wonderful weather for outdoor fun!
Kevin V. Aug 2016
This place is the perfect place for family vacation. I highly recommend this property for friends and family members .
Jatinder M. Jul 2016
Nice clean property. Had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
Jess And Colleen P. Jul 2016
Overall experience good. Not pleased with having housekeeping asking us to finish up their work after we arrived later than the check in time, plus picking up their cherry stems they spit all over the walkway by the front door.
