We come to Truckee a couple times per year, and have developed a few downtown favorites. The cons is clean, has some partial views, a gorgeous master suite. AND we can easily walk downtown or to the Legacy Trail. Just love this place!!

Great place for our group to stay for the weekend. Easy walking distance to `downtown` Truckee. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great location. Property as described. Very comfortable. Easy access and egress to the ski mountains. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We have stayed at this complex many times and really like it. The location, large bath, fireplaces and amenities keep us coming back. The only problem with this particular unit is the master bed... It was hard as a rock! We would stay here again though. Thanks This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We rented this property for 6 nights. On the first night of our stay, roads into Tahoe were closed so we received a text from the management company the evening before saying we could not get into the rental on the 27th which we understood. We were able to drive into the area on the 28th but late on the 28th received another text that we could not get in until the 29th. We tried to be flexible and looked for a hotel even though we were already in Truckee and had to pay a very high rate to stay at the hotel. Late on the 29th we received another text that we couldn`t get in until the 30th so we paid another high rate for a hotel in addition to the rent we were already paying for the rental. I had been texting a lot with the management company, Turnkey regarding the situation and ask for a refund for the nights we were not allowed to access the rental and they said they could only give us `future stay credit`. I indicated I preferred a refund since it was them that would not allow us to access our rental and to offset the expensive hotels we had to stay in but just kept getting the same auto generated texts. I tried to call the management company Turnkey to discuss the situation in person. After talking to one staff who said they were not able to help us I asked to talk to a supervisor. After being on hold for 40 minutes I was disconnected. Texting appears to be the only way to contact the management company. Although we were given `future stay credit` using that credit will entail more expensive flights and car rentals. We we in Truckee and waiting to access the rental we booked months in advance so believe we should be entitled to a refund for the nights the Management company would not allow us to access the rental especially since we had to pay hundreds of dollars in hotel since they would not allow us to access it. Once we actually go to the property the property itself was nice. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We enjoyed our stay at this home, it had everything we need. The kitchen was well stocked, we were cooking meals and using the oven a lot. Beddings were comfy, it was a home away from home. In addition, Truckee is a very lovely town. Will definitely coming back in the future. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We have stayed many places in the Tahoe/Truckee area and this was by far thee nicest! Beautifully well maintained place with nice amenities! The fireplaces, large tub, patio area... the list goes on and on! The neighbors are super nice and friendly! There is some traffic noise during the day, but subsides at night!!

We had a great time as a family. The condo was spotless and a great location to Tahoe and close to downtown Truckee. Highly recommend! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Michelle F. Aug 2021
The place is clean and in a wonderful location; however, it is not worth the stay. The next door neighbor is extremely rude and made our stay miserable. We received a text one night at 8:45 because we were too loud when we made a cheer during the baseball game on TV. There was a `party` across the street in another condo in which the music was going until past 10:00. One morning we woke up to pounding on our door from the next door neighbor screaming at us for parking our truck in the space allowed.

Perfect smooth experience from smart to finish. Clean, comfortable, excellent communication and responsive. Thanks This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Lauren P. Mar 2021
Great experience with Turnkey. Super responsive on the two occasions we required assistance. House was perfect except for the issue with the drains in the upstairs bathroom tub and master sinks. Would also recommend leaving more cleaning products (broom etc) for those doing a long term stay. Otherwise the house is in a perfect location and has everything else you need including games, ample linens, paper products, bath products etc. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Mitzie R. Jul 2020
We really enjoyed our stay here. There were five of us and we had plenty of room for everyone. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed if we chose to cook at the house. We stayed two nights and had an easy walk to downtown Truckee. Truckee is such a great little town and there are lot of hiking options in the area. If you love great beer and food I recommend Alibi Brewing in town or Old Town Tap which has amazing pizza, cheese curds, and wine or beer. We would definitely stay here again.

We love this home, second time staying here. The location is great but the management company is terrible. They don’t keep up the home and they communicate only through their online portal and text message. When issues came up with the home, like blood stains on the sheets it took lots of prodding for them to help. When they had housekeeping show up, they only changed the top sheets and they never notified us that someone would be entering the home. The sinks in the master don’t drain properly, the toilets chains fall off every other flush in the guest and powder rooms. The dishwasher doesn’t work properly and the pan for the washing machine is broken so it rocks around and is super noisy. We left feeling uneasy that things had been properly cleaned during this pandemic when we discovered the dirty sheets and dishwasher not working. The screen for the living room was in the garage upon arrival and there weren’t enough towels or kitchen towels... only to find out housekeeping left them in the washer and dryer.

Jennifer M. Jan 2020
The house was the perfect size for our family of five and very comfortable. We loved the fireplaces! The location was ideal for skiing at all local ski mountains and we were able to return home each evening to enjoy the town of Truckee.

Nicole G. Apr 2019
We were very impressed by the cleanliness of this property. We also really enjoyed how much space we had and the children in our party really enjoyed staying in the room with the bunk beds. A couple of negatives: the wall between the bunk bed room and adjoining room is thin so it is somewhat difficult to get a good night`s sleep if there is any noise in the other room. The property managers, although helpful, are a bit too intrusive. By this I mean, we received a text the first night because the kids were being a bit too loud but it was only around 7pm. We would also receive texts when the provided tablet in the living room was running low on battery with a request to plug it in. I am guessing these are automated by somewhat annoying to get several of these texts during our stay. We were also surprised that check out time was 10am! That`s earlier than most hotels and even then, they usually extend it, which these property managers refused to do. More than anything, this definitely feels like a business-run property.

Christine C. Jan 2019
The home is nice, was very clean. The fireplace keeps the living room warm; same for the Master BR if you close the door. The open living/dining/kitchen was great for all of us to eat, talk, hang out. The stove has two burners and a grill, so only two pots or pans at a time can be used. The downstairs entrance has plenty of room to put shoes, skis, etc. It was great to have laundry in the unit. We asked for a broom or Swiffer,, two times, and never got it, so we were improvising with a damp cloth so we could keep the kitchen floor clean...There were plenty of towels, the wifi worked just fine. We were able to walk to the park (where they have ice skating), and into town. Really enjoyed our stay!

Paul B. Sep 2018
I enjoyed this place. There were minor issues that most VRBO’s have but nothing that detracted from the experience this place gave. Close to town, but it was about a mile walk to the main area for dining and entertainment with a big hill on the way back if you are not physcally capable or negotiating it.

Jennifer S. Aug 2018
Overall the condo was very good, with some minor hitches. The condo worked well for five adults and one child. The only real problem was that whoever stayed there before us loaded up the neighbors trash can and the neighbor placed three bags of trash in front of the garage. It took a while for us to figure out why there was garbage in front of the garage. When we called to have it hauled, we were told to just leave it in the garage and they’d get it at the end of our stay. Well garbage stinks, so by the time we left- it was gross. They should have sent someone to pick it up. And it’s frustrating to spend vacation time on someone else’s mess. It seems like the cleaning crew should check for/ haul extra trash so that the neighbor and new guest don’t have to deal with it.

The overall property and location is excellent, and is perfect for a short ski trip. Bonus on the backyard where kids can play in snow.

The only negative I would highlight is that the 3 bedrooms are vastly different. There`s a huge master suite, with a fireplace, large TV walk-in closet, Jacuzzi. However, the other 2 rooms upstairs are much more barebones. There`s basically a bed and a closet with no shelves and the rooms are much smaller. There`s no TV or even a dresser in those rooms, and we basically had to live out of the suitcase on the floor. I think if you are planning to go as a big family with kids in the upstairs bedrooms, that`s fine. But if you are going with separate couples, then one would be living in luxury in the master suite while the other would be in the barebones room upstairs. Just thought it would be helpful to point out. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The 3BR townhome near Truckee is a great fit for a couple families vacationing together. There are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor . The master, kitchen and living areas are on the 2nd floor together with a small patio and access to the backyard.

The garage on the ground floor is large enough for 2 cars.

The house is well maintained and clean. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
