My partner and another couple spent a relaxing weekend at the Onxy Gem. The location was ideal for exploring the area and it was quick walk to the beach and restaurants. The condo was clean and nice, and had a fully stocked kitchen which we utilized when we stayed in one night for dinner. I would definitely come back!!!

The Onyx Gem was the perfect place for the 3 of us to stay for a few days in North Lake Tahoe. The condo suited our needs perfectly and it was conveniently located to many things we wanted to do. My husband was very sick with Lyme disease but the urgent care clinic in Tahoe City was convenient as was the hospital in Incline (in case you need medical attention!) The primary improvement I could suggest would be to have a hairdryer in one of the bathrooms. Other than that we all agreed it was a great place to stay.

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. The space was perfect for the four of us. The reservation process was smooth and the house was very tidy inside.

Great property - great service!
Donna C.on 02/08/2017
After a long drive it was so nice to find our cozy condo .. nicely furnished and comfortable.. On Friday a storm hit and it snowed all day !! Our electricity went out for about an hour but a very nice man at the phone number provided walked us through getting the heat back on .. in the morning we woke to find someone shoveling our walk way !! We will definitely come back !! It was a wonderful 3 days !!

nice and quiet and beautiful. furnishings were just my style, and bed was very comfy! it would have been nice to have a reading lamp near the couch. a standing one would have fit in nicely. also, would like to have a set of glasses, not plastic cups to use in the kitchen. would definitely stay here again!

not to fancy but very clean, somethings had damage
Sharlee B.on 07/11/2016
We had a great time. The Onyx Gem had something for all of us. The pool, game area and playground were fun for the kids and the location to the lake was fun for the adults. We will stay here again in a heartbeat.
Dave K.on 07/05/2016
This unit was perfect. A very short walk to the lake's edge and with a beautiful outdoor pool, nicely maintained tennis courts and excellent staff on site. Quiet but with enough activity to look alive, we would not hesitate to rent from these owners again. In fact, we'd seek it out specifically.
Roberta Jo O.on 06/04/2016
The townhome is located about 10 minutes from Kings Beach. It was very clean and everything worked. It's a great place to stay and be comfortable. The only downside was the pool was not open the days that we stayed, but overall it's in a nice area and neighborhood. I would definitely stay there again.
Nolan M.on 05/25/2016
Loved this place. Up to date, contemporary yet inviting, and a great location. I'll definitely be back.
Patrick G.on 04/12/2016
Our first time to Lake Tahoe. We loved the area and the apartment was perfect
Elliot L.on 02/22/2016
As good as advertised. Very clean with nice comfortable furnishings. Nice Entertainment center in the living room as well as the master bedroom. The internet was fast and the AppleTV made it easy to watch streaming media. The fireplace was convenient and warm. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook full meals. Short drive to Safeway as well as a variety of restaurants.
Dustin R.on 11/24/2015
This was the best experience we have had with renting a condo. Everything about it was great! The staff had gone in early to turn on the heat prior to our arrival and everything was stocked well. We will definitely be booking this condo again in the future.
Trina L.on 08/03/2015
This was our second year staying at Carnelian Woods but first at Onyx Gem, which has obviously been recently renovated throughout and furnished with quality materials. The beds and linens are very comfortable. It was nice having extra space in the loft upstairs. The only downsides are that it lacks a regular, family-friendly dining table and regular toaster, and the unit is rather dark. Everything was great, and the property manager even alerted us that Maintenance would come in to change a light bulb she had noticed out. Thanks! We'll consider it for next year.
Thomas K.on 07/14/2015
This was our first time visiting Lake Tahoe and we're so glad we chose this wonderful little condo! It saved us a lot of money on food since it has a full kitchen. The loft upstairs is adorable and very accomodating if you have more than one couple staying. It's very clean and updated with a small balcony that even has a grill. The location was great, just a short walk to King's Beach and a short drive to Sand Harbor. The only complaint I would leave is that the internet didn't work most of the time. The connection kept going in and out. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Lake Tahoe which I hope is sooner rather than later!

There's no other place I look for when my family and I spend either a weekend getaway or a long vacation in Lake Tahoe, but First Accommodations. Customer service has always been great and the townhomes and cabins/houses are well equipped and fit our needs. I'm always coming back.
Like the picture
Exactly as shown. Very clean. Loved it. Would stay again.
Everything was. Enter than expected. Maintenance was great repairing fireplace promptly and giving tutorial on tv operation. Great value for price.
Great property! Super clean, looks just like the photos, and easy walking distance to the lake, a public beach, and a few different restaurants and miniature golf for the kids. Great combination of location, and features.
The condo was lovely, and just right for our needs. Loved the privacy of it.
Fabulous place- very comfortable and clean inside (we loved the decor!), the place is along the water ! Best place to stay during any season. Plenty of delicious places to eat and so many activities around the area.
We had a great time in Tahoe! The townhome was clean, had all the equipment we needed to make a big pot of chili, and was walking distance from the old post office cafe. We were within a half hour of several ski resorts, downtown Tahoe City, or King's Beach. The amenities were great (clubhouse with mini-arcade and pool tables, as well as jacuzzis and sauna!), and we would definitely stay here for future trips! :)
overall I liked the property. The bathroom extras only consisted of soap, shampoo and conditioner would be nice. The carpets were quite dirty, I inky know this because my daughters pants picked up a lot of dirt while crawling. The shoe/boot caddy is well past the tile area so maybe people thought wearing shoes on the carpet was OK, I am not sure.
The tub wouldn't hold water initially but with a lot of trial and error I was able to set the drain correctly. The hot water heater is also set quite scalding hot, seems unnecessary and expensive for Trent.
My stay at onyx gem stay was good. The house was very nice but the housekeeper were slow at cleaning the place. The place was not done cleaning until an hour and half later from the check-in time. Other yuan that it was really awesome.
We probably wouldn't have had any interaction with First Accommodations had it not been for the cable/internet connection going down. We stopped by the office and they said they'd look into it and get back to us. I suppose I'm cynical but I put the chances of that happening right up there with being hit by a meteorite. But a little later I received a text from Cynthia saying that she had arranged for the cable company to come out for repairs the following evening, and in the meantime provided us with a nearby wifi signal that we could piggyback. Pretty sweet. The cable repair person showed up the following evening and we were back in business. The wifi came in handy because cell reception is pretty bad in that area and it was very convenient to have wifi for planning.
First Accommodations provided good service and followed-up on what they said they'd do.
This place was small, dark, and crawling with HUGE ants. Not real clean either.
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.
