All in All the condo was nice. It needs updating. The carpets need cleaning badly. Beds were comfortable, except futon in loft, which was broken. Linens/towels where clean. Was well stocked with plates, glasses etc...They need to put a shower extension in both showers, not made for tall people (anyone over 5'5")

We loved this location - perfect distance to both Northstar and Squaw/Alpine. Nearby to local eateries and a grocery store. Quiet and plenty of room for everyone. Super clean and warm! We didn't want to leave.

This is our 5th year in a row at Sierra Bella. We had 4 generations enjoy the condo this year. The lake view from the balcony and master bedroom is beautiful, the crisp mountain air is refreshing and the pine trees are beautiful. The condo was again very clean and maintained, the new bedroom mattresses are very comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped with pots/pans/dishes etc. and with a large family, the two bathrooms, dishwasher, BBQ, washer and dryer and WiFi are all appreciated. The staff at the lodge are very helpful and the amenities of the beautiful pool area, spa, ping pong, basketball, tennis, sand volleyball, pool table and hiking areas were enjoyed by all. We returned home refreshed already planning for our next visit to North Lake Tahoe and this lovely condo.

This condo was perfect for the amount of time we were there. Everything was clean and the view spectacular. However, the kitchen could use a makeover- very outdated - hated the dishwasher - so 1970s.
The showerheads in the bathrooms were too low - I'm 5'4 and had to duck to wash my hair. Maybe put the showerhead on the drywall and not in the shower fiberglass unit. Can't remember if the tub had a stopper in case you have young children who want a bath. We ate at GarWoods Restaurant just down the hill from the condo. Pricey but great food. We also ate Zia Lina Ristorante (Tahoe City) - best Italian food in Tahoe; tacos at Taco's Jalisco, Truckee; Bocce ball and wine at Truckee River Winery (great wine there).
I recommend this condo for large families as well. Kid décor in loft area.

We stayed with our family of seven, including a teenager and four young boys. The space was roomy enough for us. The upstairs "bedroom" is an open loft which made it hard for the little ones to fall asleep while we were still up but when they were tuckered out from sledding all afternoon, it was a little easier for them. We didn't find the recliner or the bed in the master bedroom incredibly comfortable but they were sufficient. It's not new or luxurious but it is very clean and the views are amazing. We had everything we needed for our week's stay. We loved the location too which is quiet and off the road a bit. There is a small free sledding hill at the golf course in Incline Village and another free public sledding hill around the lake at the 28/50 split in Nevada (30 minute drive). We didn't go there this time, but we enjoyed Gar Woods Restaurant, just be prepared to pay $$$. The rec room was fun but we were sad that even the pool table required money and the Air Hockey game was out of order. Check-in and check-out were easy and we would probably stay again. For the price we paid, we were very happy!

The whole family enjoyed staying here. It was so quiet and the view from the upstairs living room was gorgeous. Everything was lovely and clean. Would come back and stay again.

This is our 4th family vacation at this wonderful Carnelian Bay condo called Sierra Bella. Three generations of our family again enjoyed the comfortable, spacious condo that sleeps 8. We rested well on the new bed mattresses and other upgraded amenities. The barbecue worked well on the deck overlooking Lake Tahoe and the kitchen was well-stocked with cooking pans, cooking utensils, and dishes. The office staff at Carnelian Bay were very friendly and we enjoyed the beautiful pool, bocce ball course, basketball, ping-pong and tennis courts. Walks in the woods were breathtaking and refreshing. Our family also enjoyed picnicking at King’s Beach, kayaking in the early morning hours on the lake and walking the Nature Trails along the Truckee River. We are already talking about next year! I highly recommend this wonderful condo for your next family vacation.

Place is great with family with kids. Nice location and closed to everything including beach and hikes. Lots of things to do around Tahoe.
The place could use an upgrade in furnitures like the dishwasher is old and it doesnt clean the dishes and big plates dont fit. The shower stall r too short and its hard to get in if u are tall. The bed in the 2nd bedroom is very uncomfortable, my back hurt. I felt the spring of the mattress. The cleaning people didnt arriveed to clean until 4:00 pm which is when we checked in. They had to rush cleaning the place and left the laundry in washing machine for the bed sheets. But over all the place is great for family vacation. Nice club house - has pool, hot tub, video game room and pool table for kids. We got the view on our deck too.

We had a really nice few days staying here. So conveniently located and clean and simple. Everything we needed. Just two suggestions:
The town house needs a new can opener! I almost sliced my finger open using the vintage one there. Was even considering going to buy one for the place it was so bad. Also, the video games in the game room could be a little updated. Not too fun so the kids were disappointed with that.
All in all, great place. Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you

Our 3-generation-family has comfortably stayed in this condo for the past three years. We were pleasantly surprised to recently find a new pull-out couch in the living room and a new TV in the loft. The kitchen continues to be well-equipped; the propane BBQ worked well and we all enjoyed the many amenities of a great pool, tennis courts, sand volleyball court & woods. The downsides included a very uncomfortable mattress in the first bedroom and a slow & unreliable internet system. The reservation process went well. Check-in went well; however, it would have been helpful to have been given the tennis court entry code at check-in. We had a great vacation!

You continue to send the inquiries as to this stay to
ignoring in the process the woman who paid for the stay "Christine Robinson " I don't know why you continue to do that. Please update your records and send this survey to her. Thanks.

The vacation home was great. Things were overall clean and in good shape. The kitchen had all the dishes needed for cooking. There were enough linens for us to be comfortable. Internet accessible TV. There is a partial lake view from the balcony, which was unexpected and lovely.
Downside: The master bedroom had animal hair all over the hardwood floor & rugs, which is the only area that did not feel clean. A little touch up paint (furniture marked the walls in the living room) could help spruce the presentation up.

Good location and clean.



on 08/19/2017

Materials available for cooking were scarce. Plumbing fixtures in main bathroom in tub were loose and in need of minor attention. TV / Entertainment console was quite large, limiting where it could be put, thus it commanded the living room, this was unfortunate -that is if you do not watch TV which we do not. Otherwise facility was lovely as was the stay and location.

This wasn't the property we had reserved but because the property that we were planning to stay in had an issue the day we were going to checkin, we were given this property which was comparable.

Overall it worked for the 5 adults we had in our group. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of sleeping areas.

Lake tahoe in the summer gets warm in the days and cools off dramatically at night which did help the 3rd floor loft sleeping area since it didn't not have a working ceiling fan since these units do not have air conditioning.

The kitchen cabinets and drawers are in need of an update. All the appliances worked well though.

And like others have commented both bathrooms have tub showers and for some reason the shower heads are located low. Neither bathroom have been updated either but everything was in working order.

Enjoyed the views from the balconies towards the lake.



on 06/27/2015

While the view is outstanding and the accommodations mostly comfortable, this unit is in sore need of an update. The kitchen, in particular, was a source of frustration. Cabinets were hanging off the hinges and lacking in basic utensils. The I will not stay in this unit agin unless it is refurbished.

Place was clean and location was great, nice view of the lake from the balcony. Dealing with Property Management was easy and they were very professional. Had an issue with dishwasher and could not use but wasn't a real big deal. Would definitely recommend and will most likely stay there again if available on my next visit.


Carnelian Bay's North Lake Tahoe location makes for a great, quiet getway. Close to the casinos of North Lake Tahoe, public beaches, paddleboarding, kayaking, and more, this location has it all no matter what the season. Family-friendly skiing and snowboarding is close by at Northstar Ski Resort. But you're also right on the lake in Carnelian Bay. Rent kayaks or canoes, or a boat, and hit the lake. Or just sit at the beach and sunbathe or read a book. You can rent Jet skis too, or parasail or wind surf - fishing is also very popular as well. You can pay for a tour or just rent some gear and a boat and hit the lake. Magic Carpet Golf offers some great mini golf and Commons Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area, offering a beautiful view and great swimming conditions.
