Our family had a wonderful mid-July vacation. Close to North Lake Tahoe, wonderful Northstar amenities. Even with the mid-80 to low-90 temps the condo cooled down in the evening with the fans and the windows open. Highly recommend it and we will be back!!!
Really good location for summer. It’s in woods and not that hot and away from any beach hassle around the lake. Very clean and cozy place.
Clean place, comfy furniture. Beds were pretty firm/hard but sleepable. Snowed our first night there, someone shoveled the walkway for us which was nice. Good location.
Had a great few days at Northstar. The property is in a great location, near the shuttle bus and rec center etc. The inside was however tired. The fire did not work properly and threw out little heat. The kitchen could do with salad servers, condiments and perhaps some complimentary coffee as not easy to buy when skiing - just some small touches. We use Airbnb, Vrbo all the time and felt this property needed some love. The master queen bed was like sleeping on laundry bags, so lumpy and old. Not sure the pillowcases were changed as very dusty. Having said all this if the owner works on a few areas, it is a great location!
We were very happy with the accommodations.
northstar condo in the ideal location for getting to the village. accommodations adequate with a lack of updates.
Condo was cute, but the air conditioner was terrible. The lack of screens on the windows made it difficult to open windows to cool down the condo. Most of the time it was cooler outside than inside. Master bedroom bed is extremely hard and uncomfortable. Owner should have left directions on how to find the pool. I would only stay here again if I knew for certain these issues were addressed.
The overall experience was great, finding the place was a bit tricky; like I had read in the reviews.
Positive - Nice property in good location & lots of wildlife, had to stop the car and wait for a bear to wander out of our parking space before we could park one evening, also saw a coyote on site.
Negatives -We went in June and Northstar Village centre was like a depressing ghost town, only one restaurant open - however Truckee isn't far (10 min drive) and is nice with many places to eat. Cleaning very expensive and not done properly, one of the beds still had dirty linen on it - a one off mistake I am sure.
Very convenient place to stay for skiing Northstar.
cable had every channel, shuttle was quick and prompt, house was stocked, just a few minor fixes needed to happen and staff was responsive to it!
This is a great location and a lovely, comfortable condo with a well equipped kitchen. There were multiple issues however that the property managers, Vacasa, did not respond to that made our stay somewhat disappointing. In particular the fireplace does not work which they know about from other reviews and they did not respond to our repeated requests for help. One bed is soft and not so comfortable. Wet towels left in dryer, coffee maker didn't work. If these management issues were fixed I would highly recommend.
Comfortable home. Not walking distance to the resort as some at stated on the reviews but easily accessible via shuttle that comes right outside. Also, note that this home does not provide firewood so will need to get before coming
This was a wonderful warm and comfortable cabin-like condo to come back to after a day of Skiing at Northstar.
My family stayed here in September after the summer season, which was perfect because it wasn't hot but the weather was perfect. The bathrooms had tubs so it was easy to give the little ones baths. It's a very welcoming, comfortable home and luckily there wasn't very much for the toddler to mess around with. The premium channels were nice to have on the TV so we didn't need to rent from the redbox, the only complaint I have is that the one of the beds has sunken in immensely, and it needs to be changed. However, the property manager sent detailed e-mails and any question I could have had was answered without needing to contact him. I would definitely stay here again, though I hope that mattress will at some point get changed.
Visiting in the off-season end-of-summer months was great since there were very few people vacationing then. The house had some issues (see below) but the overall experience was quite nice. For some of the cons: It's not walking distance to any shops and the location is a bit tricky finding. It took using my car nav to find the way for the first 3 nights. The appliances were dated and the fridge was turned down very low and all our meat spoiled for the first two nights there since it wasn't cold enough. The grill was not very useful and we had to cook our dinners in batches since there wasn't much room for food. One tank was empty and the second take had very little fuel in it so we had to use the oven the last two nights. This isn't property related but just a general comment; the bees were very active and we couldn't enjoy the balcony. And when we were grilling, we had to be brief or they would start swarming. I was really looking forward to chilling on the balcony with a book and drink but wasn't able to at all. But besides the drawbacks, it was an excellent time.
Comfortable beds and a cozy space to rest after a day at the beach and Lake Tahoe! We loved it!
This place was very affordable. With great shuttle service.
Overall, it's a great place to stay. The shuttle stop is right front of the condo and it takes less than 5 minutes to get to the resort.
I felt like the mattresses could've been better.
We were so happy with the location. Call for shuttle service to and from lifts, and def take advantage of the rec center with 3 hot tubs and a sauna. The fireplace was nice, too, and the kitchen has most items you need. (We cooked 3 dinners) One of the beds is pretty bad though, and there's no set up for music.
We came to Tahoe for ski, and the location of the property is great. We can take the shuttle to Northstar Resort and Village. The condo itself is ok, clean and well-equipped with washer, dryer, coffee maker, toaster, cookware and so on. But it's old, especially the beds, both were way too soft. We didn't sleep well because of this. Hope they can improve it.
We regret to see that you did not sleep well during your stay as we know this is critical in order to enjoy vacation. We will advise the owner so they can take your comments under advisement. We hope you enjoyed your time in the area!
The atmosphere and neighborhood where this condo is located is very pleasant and enjoyable! The interior is just as pleasant! The feeling created by the pictures matches reality. We'll return for sure!
My fiance and I stayed here during our wedding preview weekend. We are getting married at Northstar, so the location of the property was perfect for us. The shuttle is so quick and easy! We love Northstar village and downtown Truckee, and it gave us easy access to both. The condo was adorable, and it felt like our little home for the weekend (complete with kitchen, laundry room, etc...which is awesome). We would definitely return (but hope that the beds and pillows have a bit more support!). :)
We visited Northstar for the first time during the week before Christmas and can't be happier with the Condo and the renting experience with Vacasa. Am currently booking another visit (or two) through Vacasa again.
Very happy, get spot. Hope to be back for Skiing
We really enjoyed our stay at this cute and clean condo. It's located is a bit up the hill from Northstar Village, but we didn't mind the short drive down to use the NPOA Rec Center facilities. Condo location is an easy drive to Tahoe City and Truckee. We grabbed groceries in King's Beach and enjoyed being able to make our own coffee and breakfast. We also made use of the gas BBQ. All in all, a great stay and we would happily stay here again.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back next year!
Clean and spacious with forest views, shuttle to slopes that comes in minutes, and access to awesome recreation center. This one has it all!!
Very clean and quiet condo with convenient shuttle to Northstar Villages. Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. Skiing at Northstar was great!
