Property was just fine but the kitchen sink faucet was very loose as were the kitchen cabinet hinges. Just an FYI to the owners...

The cabin/condo was awesome. Close to everything and yet cozy
Mike and Julie G.on 08/28/2018
We had a real enjoyable visit at Carnelian Bay where the rental was very accommodating and the location was perfect, approximately only one block from the lake. The unit was clean and we'll maintained, located in a quiet community. The pool was fabulous, also well maintained with no heavy chlorine scent.
Jeanette M.on 08/03/2018
We loved the quiet condo and would stay again or recommend. The rental company was responsive and helpful. Condo had updated furniture except for beds and was clean and tidy.
William L.on 03/24/2018
Everything was wonderful and just as we expected. Only thing is we couldn't get the toaster to work for bagels in the morning!
Melissa S.on 07/30/2017
We had a wonderful time here. The only thing I would say is we bought food to BBQ and we're not able to on deck. I wish we were told this befor we arrived. I hate to wast food.
Jannette C.on 07/20/2017
Have stayed several times - Great value!

This was an ample sized 4 bed property. It was very clean. Everything you could want for the week was provided. In L.Tahoe you don't spend much time indoors so the size was fine. Mezzanine level upstairs would've been a problem if we had younger children as they would've been kept awake until we had gone to bed. Fly screen downstairs was damaged so we weren't able to have the balcony doors open in the evening. View from balcony was just of woodland nothing pretty. Very small shower room for everyone to use, just a toilet upstairs. Really odd guy working at reception who was really quite rude when I asked where I check in. He was sitting in the games room with his feet up on a table watching tv so I wasn't sure if he was a guest, I asked about reception being manned. After asking twice he said "I was just waiting for you to ask in the right way" Pool at the rec centre was clean, large and generally empty. Hot tubs were great too. I would consider staying there again, mostly because of the central location of Carnelian bay, and it is a really nice quiet area but I'd check the view from the property and may be get one closer to the pool area.

House was very clean and comfortable, like a true home. The living room was a bit cramped with a sofa and table, but since we didn't have more than 4 guests it was manageable. The only downside is that it was advertised as 2 Bedroom, with 2 twins and 1 Queen. It is actually 1 Bedroom with a Full bed, and a loft with 2 singles. The Full bed is too small for 2 adults, so that was a bit tough.
Barbara A.on 09/06/2016
Unit was as expected based on photos online. IT could have accommodated up to 6, but we decided on just US, for some R & R! We chose Carnelian Woods because we owned a unit there for 22 years and like the location and the mountainy feel of these units. This unit was updated and nicely (warmly) decorated. I especially liked the feel of the loft, though we didn't use it at all. It would be fun to come there again with another couple. We liked having breakfast at the Post Office, walking distance, as we had done many times before. The biggest negative was all the paperwork, contract signing, faxing required. It seemed to make the process harder than it needed to be. I have rented online before; it was usually seamless.
vonnie R.on 08/15/2016
We had a wonderful stay in this cozy and well supplied home. Close to Kings Beach and Tahoe City. HBO and STARZ were nice to have at night. Large pool. Very good value.
Tina M.on 08/08/2016
We had a wonderful stay in this cozy, well furnished and fully stocked townhouse. The host, Trent, was helpful and accessible. The description was accurate, the location beautiful and the amenities perfect! We enjoyed the volleyball court, pool and jacuzzi as well as the nature hike right from our backyard. The surrounding community is filled with fun things to do. We saw an outdoor performance that overlooked the lake, rented kayaks and shopped in great little stores!
Lori H.on 07/01/2016
This condo was a great place to stay in Tahoe and we would definitely stay here again. The location was close to everything yet peaceful and away from the summer crowds. The rental was clean and management was very responsive.
Charlie W.on 03/23/2016
Perfect price and location. Great value for our money. Would definetly rent again!
Hong Z.on 02/13/2016
Nicely maintained townhouse. Very convenient to the ski sites.
Property Management is very professional before, during and after the stay.
Stella D.on 09/24/2015
Good, but never I had internet
Ralph Y.on 09/04/2015
Place was clean with a great kitchen for cooking with plenty of room, tools, and plates. The only knock was the cable tv that would not work. Great pool and spa area and loved the location. Way better than a hotel.
Tomasz B.on 07/01/2015
We have been renting this unit for at least last couple years or so, typically in spring/summer and winter. We have enjoyed the unit, which is still reasonably OK but it clearly shows signs of neglect. Cleanliness of carpets is far from desired. Kitchen is equipped but barely for family cooking, we typically bring our own cooking utensils etc. Bunch of minor but noticeable things like heating vent cover by the entrance, which has not been fixed perhaps at least a year etc. Balcony looks like it has been cleaned long time ago. Overall, still perhaps okay but clearly could use some TLC besides just the-end-of-stay cleaning.
Viviana A.on 03/15/2015
The property is very comfortable and clean.
It is very well equipped.
Not have any cleaning element.
The heating is very noisy.
The hot water was not enough for 4 people.
It is located near the lake but away from the malls.
A few miles there is a supermarket.
We have had good attention by property managers.
Lori O.on 07/12/2014
We had two minor appliance issues. Impressed with the same day response from the property manager. One call was even on a Sunday. We will Definetly use this property management for our future rentals.
GERALD K.on 02/24/2014
The impeccably clean well appointed condo was comfortable and welcoming. Bedding was recent and linens of good quality & plentiful. Overall I would recommend and/or stay here again. However there were a few quirks. First, with no grate in the fireplace, it is nearly impossible to light a fire, rendering the fireplace merely decorative. Second, while the hot tubs were GREAT (warm, clean) no pool available in winter :-( The location of the property is PERFECT if you are planning on skiing northern Lake Tahoe Resorts. Its about 20 minutes from either Diamond Peak, Northstar, Alpine Meadows & Squaw
When we arrived there was a pile of sheets and towels on the bed. The bed was made with mismatched bedding. The comforter was dirty. Bathroom was clean and nice. Towels were very thin and rough to the touch. Carpet and furniture in the living room area were dirty. Went home a day early due to uncomfortable surroundings.
Such a nice little condo. It was clean, kitchen was updated. Perfect for a few days getaway to Tahoe. Close to stores and restaurants.
I booked this condo on very short notice. We needed a place to take our grandchildren to get them out of the poor air quality in Napa, CA while the fires were very active there in mid-October. The management company was very helpful as we booked, then cancelled and booked again within a day because the conditions in Napa, CA kept changing. The kitchen indeed had lots of dishes, silverware, cookware and cooking utensils. The pictures on-line were very representative of the actual accommodations. One recommendation - more towel rods and/or towel rings in the bathrooms. There was not enough space to spread out towels to dry properly.
The condo was very clean, which is always my biggest concern. Everything was there that we needed, and it was centrally located for all our needs. The bed in the master bedroom could use some work. The bed is low to the floor and somewhat uncomfortable. We both slept OK but there is some room for improvement. Otherwise, the stay was great!
The condo was lovely and very clean. Our teenagers loved the sleeping loft! The amenities were a hit: a beautiful pool, hot tubs, fun game room and the Par Course. Location is perfect, quiet, close to Kings' Beach and the grocery store. Highly recommend!
The property was good. A bit small but nice. It would be best for just a couple to stay or a very small family. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
My family and I had a great time, this place is fantastic. This place is fully equipped to feel right at home, just pack your bags. The amenities were awesome, perfect way to relax and finish the day. We will be back and I will recommend this place to our friends!
This rental was very clean and had a great kitchen. The loft area with two beds is ideal for a couple with young kids. If you have older kids, the sound from the living room may interfere with late sleepers. The rental is ideally situated between Kings Beach and Tahoe City.
This unit was just right for our family of 3. Enough space to stay apart and be together as we wanted. Place is updated and attractive, and very clean. I would rent this space again, and for a longer time than the 2 nights we scheduled.
Lovely cozy, modern duplex in a very peaceful setting surrounded by woods. Soft thick pile carpet, modern kitchen , comfortable beds, log fire... Nice pool facilities and games room. Short distance from the lake and some dining options.
We had an outstanding time at Carnelian Woods over Labor Day. The unit is in the perfect location- walking distance to the Lake, good restaurants and Mini Golf. The unit itself is immaculate and the perfect size for 4.
We enjoyed our stay at this condo. My family and I especially enjoyed the community pool/spa and other amenities. The condo itself had been remodeled and we felt right at hone here. My only complaint would be that the queen bedding seemed not fresh and older. But, having the large lift space and sofa bed too worked for the family. It was a nice time for us.
Vacation rental is good alternative to hotels stay for family vacations provided you're ok if some amenities and conveniences are missing, prepare to be surprised mostly for better and sometimes for worse.
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.
