A lovely condo, with a gorgeous setting on
Donner Lake, where we relaxed with a cup of coffee then headed out for some skiing and snowshoeing! It was sparkling clean and comfortable with all amenities, quiet too for a great night of sleep. We highly recommend!

The property was dirty: multiple chunks of cat/dog food were spread on the floor everywhere. The toilet sits from inside have brown-yellowish stains and the surface of the toilet water tank was full of dust. The "cleaning service" seemed to be satisfied just by cleaning dishes. The pillows and cushions had a lot of dust which has been there for many months. Many corners have spider webs. Some corners have black/brown color because of algae. The property itself has algae and a heavy moisture smell. Owners keep their old shoes in the closet (facing the entrance) and multiple old backs full of their belongings.
Why do I pay the cleaning fee for?
The cleaning lady came to clean the next day and used a vacuum to clean the floor. She said that she volunteer to work for the local community. Management does not use professional cleaners but uses the help of volunteers?
After all of the experiences, my kid started to have an allergic reaction to her eyes and hands. The complaint was sent to the management and +1 530 536 6110 with pictures of my kid's eyes asking to solve the problem. Nothing except cleaning has been done. We bought a cream (against allergy) for the kid to sustain 2 nights more in the apartment.
- The person downstairs used a heavy weighted tool (presumably a hummer) to hit the wall 5-6 times the 1st day we came after 8 PM. He used the same tool 2 times the next day. Originally, I thought he does some repair. It turned out he was unsatisfied by the level of noise coming from upstairs, we stayed. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids. Kids jump and run around and it’s ok to be unsatisfied, but using a tool (hummer I guess) to smash the wall made us feel intimidated. People should not come for vacation with the place where they face residentials willing to use such barbarian methods of communication. The management should not put the property on the market, as people coming for vacation must rest but not think about “someone” downstairs.
Manager response:
We're sorry to read you were so unhappy, Andriy. We did send housekeeping back out to address any oversights, and a deep clean has been done as well. The homeowner has been asked to place their personal belongings into owner storage on the property. We do ask that guests be respectful of downstairs neighbors. Thank you!

the wife and I spent 5 days at the home and truly enjoyed our time, the views are amazing and the area quiet and quaint. We teleworked for a few days and then took off into town, Reno, and Tahoe, all within reasonable driving times. You won't be disappointed when you go. Finally a shout out to the mgmt team, I left some valuables in the unit and realized when we got home, called and they went straight to the home and retrieved our things, what a honest team of professionals, thanks again, a wonderful trip and hope to return soon enough.

This property could not have been more perfect for us. The views were lovely, the house well kept, and anything needed was supplied. We would definitely would rent this condo again.

We are a family of 4 who stayed here for several days of skiing, and it was perfect. This is a beautiful, clean, well-cared for home, with what appear to be recently renovated kitchen and bathrooms. Everything we needed was there, and in good condition. I especially appreciated that the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and dishes. It was warm, cozy, and quiet. Although it is a condo, we couldn't hear any noise from the units below or to either side. The main living room and dining area were spacious with attractive and comfortable furniture, as well as a great view right on to the lake. I especially liked the large tiled entry area with bench (with some handy pieces of heavy duty carpeting underneath) for taking off snowy boots, and the kids loved sleeping in the loft. It could also easily have fit a larger group, if needed.
