Mountain View Condo Near Lifts with Free WiFi, Shared Pools/Hot Tubs/Tennis

With space for four guests, a private patio overlooking the mountains, and an unmatched location in the heart of Northstar, this special studio makes an unforgettable Tahoe escape! Right on the main walk of the Village at Northstar, this studio condo has two comfortable queen beds to sleep up to four guests. Just outside the door, enjoy fabulous casual and fine dining, roller and ice-skating, fire pits and lounging around the rink, skiing and snowboarding, movie theater, and world-class shopping. Or walk over to the NPOA Recreation Center to the year-round outdoor pool and hot tubs, seasonal recreation pool with water mushroom, tennis, workout facilities, and more! You will also enjoy a private parking spot in the lot adjacent to the building.

Enjoy the convenience of a nicely equipped kitchenette with microwave, coffeemaker, and mini-fridge. With the gourmet deli and taqueria right across the way, it's easy to dine in or prepare a light meal before a day of exploration. The movie theater is just down the walk, and the ice-skating rink and gondola are up a flight of stairs outside. Overlook all the action from your Village-view patio after a fun-filled day, or enjoy a quiet night in with the cable TV with DVD player. Internet access makes it easy to plan your next adventure or book the night's dinner reservations! One private parking spot in the very closest lot is reserved for your stay, and there's a coin-op laundry room on-site so you'll never run out of fresh warm socks for a day on the slopes!

Wintertime is a skier's paradise, with the lifts within easy walking distance. In the summer, mountain bike down from the gondola, or hit up the golf course with its unique 'mountain nine' and 'valley nine' layout. Skiing couldn't be more convenient, and in the summer Northstar features downhill mountain biking from the gondola as well. For even more recreation, Truckee is just two miles away, and Kings Beach/Lake Tahoe are just six miles. Hop on the public bus, less than a block from your door, to explore all the attractions that this recreational paradise has to offer!

Thadd V. Mar 2022
At a minimum the A/C unit and shower plumbing need updating. The A/C unit, set on heating was extremely loud and cycled on and off constantly every couple minutes making it very hard to sleep. The shower needs a hot water safety valve because you get pulses of scalding water several times per shower (this is an easy upgrade for a plumber), also the knob and shower head are worn to the point where they barely work.
Manager response:
Hi Thadd, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to hear your feedback about your stay! We appreciate you bringing the hot water to our attention. Rest assured that we will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your feedback. We're looking forward to hosting you again for another enjoyable stay!
HUI Min C. Feb 2022
Great location! Steps from gondola. Enough plates, silver wear and cups/glass for 4. Even a few larger bowls. Bed comfortable. Only thing is pillows are quite thin and the extra pillow in the closet didn't come with pillow case.
Peter H. Feb 2022
Heater was very noisy, the curtains didn't block enough light, and the microwave was very weak. Otherwise, the place was excellent, especially the location!
Jack B. Jan 2022
The price was right.
Nathan L. Jan 2022
Perfect for our overnight stay in Northstar. Very clean and comfortable. Easy parking and access to the lifts.
robert c. Jul 2021
Great location!!! Needs updating and dusting. That would make for a relaxing stay. Comforters and throw pillows seem not to be washed in between stays.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We are disappointed to hear the home was not up to the high standard of cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. Our local manager has addressed this with our housekeeping team. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to impress you in the future!
Wei L. Jun 2021
The lamp cover is broken and the stand light is not work

Melissa L. Mar 2021
This place is perfect for the price. Had all the basics needed for a comfortable stay. I’ve rented this place several times and will again!
Deborah A. Mar 2021
It was very convenient, and I considered it a worthwhile expense for a quick trip to Tahoe. That being said, the furnishings are a little dated. There is a coffee pot, which is very nice. Be sure to pick up some coffee filters and coffee before your stay!!
Kelly I. Aug 2020
Location is great...close to lifts for biking and restaurants. Parking pass is a plus.
Kylie S. Mar 2020
Check in and location could not have been any better! Everything was perfect. Thankyou.

The room was small with all of our gear but no complaints as we were only in the room to shower and sleep.

Perfect but could do with a little upgrade. Considering price and location we really have no complaints.

The room supplied everything you need. Comfy bed and linens, hot water and good pressure. Huge private balcony with afternoon sun!

Small fridge for beer, coffee pot and microwave.

We will absolutely be returning next year. Thanks so much.
Mitchell A. Jan 2020
Clean, convenient, perfect location and excellent parking spot!

The Location ans Everything was wonderful
LORENA C. Oct 2018
Had a nice stay thank you just the room is outdated but clean :)
LAURIE H. Sep 2018
The sheets were clean.
ROBERTO B. Sep 2018
Pretty much as a regular hotel room. Nice, cozy, with a balcony and in the heart of the village. Only downside was the ugly music out of the mexican restaurant across the boulevard but should you keep the balcony door closed then it's fine.
Tanya H. Aug 2018
We loved having access to Northstar Resort and the proximity to King's Beach and North Tahoe Regional Park. We stayed here in August for a local baseball tournament. The room had two large beds, almost a full kitchenette (minus a stovetop), a huge sink (I guess in case you need to wash big, dirty things) and a tiny bathroom. The bathroom was super tiny, but clean enough. The place could use an update. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were not. Overall, it was a great value.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The mattress and pillows were replaced before this guests arrival.
Susan R. Jun 2018
This place has a great location!
Miriam P. May 2018
Bed comfortable, small room and very small bathroom, room smells like old house no easy acces from parking lot to the room and looks like there’s no office to check in when you get there so call to check in and check out also need to get and access code for the door, other than that I liked it.
Karen D. Mar 2018
We had a great week in Northstar. The location of the property was perfect. The property is on the smaller side but has everything you need. Vacasa answered all our questions in a timely manor. Would stay here again.
Michelle M. Feb 2018
We really enjoyed having such a convenient spot to stay. The kitchen amenities are enough for breakfast and lunch but plan to eat out for dinner. It’s very small - our little family of 3 had probably reached the limit with 5 days. It was a significant disappointment to find that although the lodging information claims there are laundry facilities but there are not. This and some of the other notes in the information book as well as signs on the wall are not relevant to the rental (eg. The sign says to start the dishwasher- funny)
Manager response:
We have removed laundry from the listing and apologize for the error. Thank you!
Joshlyn H. Feb 2018
Location is great but unit is very small and it is definitely dated. Bring your own toiletries and coffee.
Jason C. Nov 2017
I enjoyed my stay here the room was nice and so was the surrounding area. i will return again.
Davide M. Oct 2017
Jason R. Aug 2017
Shower is in great need of service. Be sure to leave your clothes outside of the bathroom until they fix the shower. Great location. I was surprised that the room was within the resort. You can walk to the shops and the gondola
Manager response:
The property manager has fixed the leaking shower head. We apologize that it was an issue.
Susan And Paul M. Jul 2017
Need some upgrade stayed in this same room
But different unit was much nicer
Nicole W. Apr 2017
Based on previous reviews we expected the room to be in an awesome location but the room to be overly small and have less than the basic necessities. Located in the village, totally convenient and easily accessible to everything in the village. The room was bigger than what we had expected, and had all the basics like in a regular hotel room. The fit was comfortable for our family of 4; includes our 14 and 6 year old children. We'd rent this room again.
Weyland W. Mar 2017
If you plan on skiing Northstar, staying in the village is the way to go. Very convenient place. Its not a luxury hotel but it serves the exact purpose of a place to stay and be within walking distance of the ski resort. No need to fight for parking, etc
Thomas K. Feb 2017
Love the location. So easy to get to the lifts. First day we had a 9 hour blackout. We got in bed with our jackets on at 8pm to stay warm. No lights, no heat. Toilet needs fixing and heater needs some way so that it doesn't blow cold air on the person in the bed near it. Walls are thin so we had Frankenstein above us. ...couldn't believe someone could walk so much and so loud in such a small space. Then we had to listen to the late night amorous goings-on of the neighbors next to us. You have to take your own coffee filters... this isn't a hotel room. We took 100 and left them for future renters.
Adam O. Jan 2017
Stayed with my wife and daughter. Reminds me of placed I stayed when I was much younger. Would probably opt for a 1 bed next time. You can't argue with the insanely awesome location.
Kamyar F. Jan 2017
The location was great form a skiing convenient perspective however, it was unbearable for sleeping. There was constant beeping noise all night long. It sounded like trucks going in and out and their back up beeping was nonstop. Garbage trucks delivery trucks, snow removal etc. Nonstop, all night long. We stayed there two nights and I did not sleep at all either night.
The unit is tired and you get what you pay for but the noise was unacceptable.
Will not got there again.
Mike M. Dec 2016
The location is perfect. You walk downstairs and you're in the village, fifty yards from the gondola. Parking spot is perfect too.
John K. Sep 2016
Would recommend it at all.
Sarah S. Jul 2016
This was my first visit and stay in Northstar. I would love to come back.
Jennifer S. Mar 2016
We absolutely loved this place and the location, fell in love until we went to bed. The beds in this place need to be replaced. My guess is they are the original beds from the condo. So great place but bad nights sleep!
Stephen S. Feb 2016
Burnt out light bulbs. Batteries need replaced in TV remote. Drapes thin. Light from outside comes through. Need eyeshades. Very small area for preparing any food. Surface area usable is approx 10 inches by 8 inches. The 4 cup coffee maker, toaster, and utensil caddy take up most of the counter space.
Only positive is the location and the price.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. The Property Manager will take care of the light bulbs and remote control batteries. The kitchen area is very small as this is a studio apartment.
Amelia M. Feb 2016
Great location if you need to stay in the village. There isn't much going on at night so I prefer to stay in truckee or by the lake instead.
Jill M. Feb 2016
Basic accommodations, great location!
Lei L. Feb 2016
This studio is at a perfect location, inside the village, a short walk to the gondola. We were very happy with our location. The room is staged like a hotel room, which was sufficient for us two people since we don't cook, and we don't have a lot of luggage.
They can do better on the maintenance details. A metal decorative hook has a loose nail, and when I tried to use it, it fell down and stabbed my foot. Not cool. Make sure you have your tetanus shot.
Mini-fridge was set to max cold, froze all of our food. Fresh fruits turned into frozen fruits the next morning. Make sure to check the fridge setting before using it is my recommendation.
Caron T. Jan 2016
We loved this place! Will definitely stay again. Just the perfect size for my son and I. The location is so perfect to get out and on the mountain early without having to deal with shuttles, etc. the village had everything we needed and we had a fabulous time.
Susan H. Jan 2016
Only good thing going for this unit is location to lift. Very out dated, not enough towels to accommodate 4pp as advertised.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review and your feedback regarding the towels. We will have our property manager make sure that new ones are added to the home so our guests can have enough for their stay.
John D. Jan 2016
This is a hotel style room that provides accommodation close to the ski lifts. It is a bit tired, but reasonably priced for mid-week stays. Microwave, coffee maker and fridge are provided along with dishes and cutlery. Access to the local Recreation Center is a plus.
Kena S. Jan 2016
This property is in the heart of the village and was a very quick walk to the gondola and chair lift.
Rebecca M. Dec 2015
We enjoyed staying right in the village, nice restaurants. We would stay here again. It was a bit outdated but for the price it seemed like a great deal to be so close to everything. Loved having mini kitchenette for breakfast.
Men-Ching L. Dec 2015
The place is not very big but its all about location, location, location! Very short walk to the lifts and in the village. It is a small hotel room with a little kitchen area with a microwave & frig. It is perfectly equipped with plates, cups, glass bowls for reheating, utensils, can openers. Small drip coffee maker for tea but no coffee.

I would definitely rent this again for my family of 4 but it is a hotel room.
Siddhartha S. Aug 2015
We enjoyed our stay for a weekend at this property. Location is great. We would certainly go back.
April T. Jul 2015
Really nice and convenient location. Room was mediocre at best, bathroom had some mold and toilet did not flush properly, small room. Overall if staying a night or two you will be fine.
Manager response:
We apologize for the bathroom maintenance issues and will take care of those right away. This room is very basic, but it is worth it for the great location. Thank you!
Laura H. Jul 2015
We spent a few days here and had a great time with our young children. The unit is small, but the proximity to the village and price made it worth it. I have limited mobility, so I needed a unit in Northstar with no stairs. After a lot of research, I learned that only the condos in the village fit that description. The elevator from the parking lot is very tight, but we were able to fit our family with my wheelchair in. At the front door of the condo, there is a significant lip, so I couldn't ride the wheelchair in -- I just stood up outside and my husband folded the chair up and we stored in on the balcony. The bathroom is very tight, but I was able to make it work -- someone in a wheelchair full time would have a hard time transferring. I was also impressed with how much function they packed into the space. It was great to have a fridge and microwave, plus a little desk area and a table to eat or play games at. Thanks for a great condo! I would stay here again!
Karen J. Jun 2015
A little out-dated, but no more than most of Tahoe rentals. Bathroom is tiny - not much to be done about that, but just an observation. The beds were so comfortable and the location was perfect for our weekend at Northstar!
Carlos G. Jan 2015
The room is perfect for a small family with a couple of kids.
Peter Y. Dec 2014
Love the location of the unit. There is a cafe/deli right across from the building and it is just far away enough from the loud crowds of the main village. Will definitely stay there again.
Kareen F. Oct 2014
Definitely will stay and use Vacasa again! We were pleased with how affordable this place was. Very homey! Great location too.
Leslie T. Sep 2013
Good value, right in the village, comfortable. keep in mind that it is an older building so there are no acoustic properties so you hear everything.
