After a very tiring road trip, it was wonderful to arrive at Driftwood to find a warm and inviting place. We loved how there were so many lovely facilities like a full kitchen with all new appliances, strong hot shower, even large log beds which completed that feel of a cosy log cabin. We felt very comfortable. The ability to light a fire and enjoy that whilst looking out to a beautiful snowy landscape too was lovely. We would definitely come back again.

We really liked condo. It was clean, well supplied & comfortable. The location was perfect for getting around the lake.
There were only a few issues. Despite hearing gas come out for the fireplace it wouldn't light & neither would the grill. I had to cook out steaks on a skillet. I'm glad there was one there.
We did got to the club house & use the hot tub. Very nice.
It was a good idea to leave the keys in the lock box whenever we went out. Always assured us that we could a least get back in.

Our family has discovered the Carnelian Woods HOA, and the various rentals. Perfect for summertime, and wintertime fun. The Driftwood unit is perfect for families wanting to enjoy onsite summertime amenities, such as the pool and hot tub (no outside food/drinks/alcohol apparently), tennis courts (closed due to resurfacing), and other common area features. The units common area living area is comfortable and as pictured. Kitchen is remodeled, but with minimal additional touches, such as spare Tupperware/food storage, foil, plastic wrap, and pantry items. Not a deal breaker, but other rental units have had more equipped kitchens. No Smart TV onsite, which is a nice touch to have, so guests can enjoy their subscription based apps when winding down for the evening. The upstairs loft is spacious, and includes a toilet and sink. It would be a nice touch to install a sheetrock wall, and enclose the loft, and turn it into a bedroom. This would allow guests who are in the living area, to continue on with their evenings, without additional noise disruption. The Weber grill is hooked up to natural gas, and works well. The unit does not include a handbook for guests to review policies and best practices. Other units have typically included such. This unit 15 and is located between adjacent units, although the upstairs windows allow additional light in the living area, which is nice. In order to increase airflow on the summer days, a couple of box fans would be a great addition. If you are a light sleeper the ceiling fan in the loft, is out of balance and makes noise. Finally there is no dining table, but the countertop is spacious and well appointed. If the owner continued to accept feedback and improve on the unit, it would continue to be a choice when we want a 1 room and 1 loft option at Carnelian Woods.

This was my first experience with VRBO and couldn't be any more pleased. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house. Beautiful, clean, quiet and great location.
Brian H.on 06/04/2018
The home was in perfect condition, the pictures are very accurate. We traveled as a family of four adults and the home was a perfect size for us. Two king sized beds were a great feature compared to many rentals we've stayed in with queen or full sized beds. There were also plenty of extra blankets and pillows to use if needed. The main bedroom does not have a ceiling fan, but there was a medium oscillating fan in the closet that we used, which was really nice. There is a ceiling fan for the loft area.
A really nice touch was individual size boxes of detergent for use with the washing machine, as well as new and wrapped bars of hand soap and a new small bottle of dish soap. Nice touches you would find in good hotels.
This was our third time visiting Tahoe in the last four years, and the first staying in Carnelian Bay. It was much quieter than South Lake Tahoe, which we liked and close to Tahoe City, Truckee, Tahoe Vista and Sand Harbor, which we spent a lot of our time in. If you plan to spend a lot of time in South Lake Tahoe, or near Heavenly, there can be quite a bit of driving. Either way you go around the lake is at least a 45 minute drive one way. We encountered road construction on both sides of the lake during our visit as well.
Overall we loved this home and highly recommend it.

Sofia A.on 01/29/2017
First of all, thank you very much for the support when we were getting there. We did a mistake not attempting for the keys of place and we were very well assisted by the owner of location.
Staying in a such beautiful place is always a pleasant experience. We stayed with the whole family for skiing at Squaw and were very much enjoyable.
We look forward to visit again Lake Tahoe, maybe, on summer or spring.
Again thank you very much for helping us having a such nice experience at Lake Tahoe.

The house was beautiful, all super comfortable, clean and cozy.
It is very well located to go skiing to the best ski centers in the area.
The only bad thing was it was very difficult to find the entrance from the route. Surely it was so much snow.
Vicente A.on 11/19/2016
It was a great week. The home was nice and cozy. It had everything we needed. The game room and being so close to the lake and a snow play area were great too.
Murray H.on 09/11/2016
Very positive experience.Central location for North Lake Tahoe. Much less crowded than South. Accommodations perfect for 3 of us.Only suggestion is to include facial tissue.
Lee S.on 07/05/2016
We liked what has been done to the kitchen.
Hong K.on 11/26/2015
The townhouse is very clean and neat. You can not help but relax while you're there. We are going to book this property again for next year!
Carlos V.on 09/18/2015
Rental experience was great overall.
Katherine B.on 09/05/2015
We had an absolute blast! There was more than enough space for our family, we found lots of cozy blankets when the evenings got chilling and the location was so much better than other places we have rented.
Craig G.on 07/19/2015
The rental was a perfect fit for our family of 4. Plenty of seating, nice size refigerator, very comfortable king beds, and neat upgraded bathroom. Will rent this unit again.

We enjoyed our stay and you can't beat the price!
Martha P.on 03/28/2015
Vi havde 2 overnatninger ved Tahoe søen, og kan anbefale stedet. Meget smukt, gode trails og ikke overrendt. Historien er interessant, guldlandet, Donner familien og Vikingsholm.
Darlene K.on 12/11/2014
This was a great vacation..the condo was even nicer than the pictures on had everything including paper towels in the kitchen..dishwasher soap. Dish soap.....everything we needed was there.even matches to light the real fire place...decor was very nice..there was a bear theme threwout the the whole felt like home..cosy....warm...and so many blankets we could have survived a bblizzard without the heater on
David B.on 08/09/2014
Very happy with everythingn
Place was nice. The only complaint is that temperature in the condo was not consistent. Very hot near the furnace but cold elsewhere. Likely due to the age of the furnace and the design of heating system.
Easy check-in/check-out, great location
We really enjoyed our time in Carnelian Woods. The condo was clean, cozy and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable, which is very important to us. This was a nice place to come back to each day. The location was perfect - right between Tahoe City and Incline Village. We were really pleased with our time here. We'll be back.
The house was great the property was ok and the property manganese were very strange/ in welcoming. I think it’s wired that you have to deal with two different companies instead of just the owner. We didn’t use any of the electronics but the internet worked fine for us.
It was great for my family of 4
Great location-close to many restaurants and beaches. Slept like a baby on the king bed. We found the unit to be cold in the living room. As soon as we turned down the heat, we could feel the cold air coming up through the floors just in the living room. The bedroom was carpeted so it was nice and toasty. I would rent this again, but only in the summer.
property management was very easy to work with and was very responsive. from date of booking through phone call for early check-in, communication was excellent. property is located between Tahoe city and Kings beach. ideal location because we were staying for local ski resorts and proximity to stores and restaurants. All were at the farthest 30 minutes away. Property was well appointed. Other than groceries, there was nothing missing or needed. We were surprised to find the unit also had a stacked washer/dryer which came in very handy.
Beautiful condo, new appliances, very clean and bright. We could not get TV to work but to busy to watch anyway. We highly recommend this condo.
Outstanding location in Carnelian Bay. Unit in perfect shape and clean. Very comfortable.
Two suggestions: 1. A floor lamp or two are needed in the living room for reading. 2. An operational DVD player would be nice.
Wonderful stay. Will stay at this unit again in the future.
Enjoyed our long weekend stay at Driftwood. Condo was clean and comfortable and the hot tub was fantastic! Only issues were that there is no cell reception and the wifi did not work for most of our stay. While the bathrooms are newly renovated and lovely, the kitchen could use a upgrade as well.
It was a good place; clean, cozy. Maintenance/service was on point. I never interacted with anyone personally, but the reservation process was smooth and the condo was ready and waiting for our arrival.
Property was very clean and well kept. Great location if the north shore is your destination. We plan to stay here next year.
We stayed here in 2015 and it appears the appliances and the downstairs bathroom have all been redone. Everything worked well with the exception of the bbq was out of propane, the upstairs bathroom toilet runs loudly, and the dvd player did not work. Beds were comfy (aside from the one twin upstairs) and unit is very quiet even though it is one of those closer to the main road which we chose on purpose to haul our kayak across the street easier. Unit seemed very clean including the light colored carpeting. Would definately stay here again.
The property that we rented was a house for 5 people. It was just as described! Very clean, carpeted, heated. Came with 2 king sized beds and a twin sized and a comfy sofa. Bathrooms are modern and clean. Plenty of bedding to keep warm as well. The loft was amazing as well. The hot tubs were super clean, but only downside was that it closed pretty early at 8:45 pm. Would definitely rent again!
Cooking pots are in bad shape. Everything else was fine.
Nice dining area and living room.
Upstairs bath has no shower so need to share downstairs.
Parking is in a lot 150 feet from condo.
We stayed 3 nights during thanksgiving time, the experience is great! I really like the furniture store and decor of this house, appliance is very nice too. The only drawback is the pans and pots are very worn out.
We have stayed at Carnelian Woods many times in the past 30 years and have found the accommodations to be comfortable, clean and well-kept. Sleeping comfort was lacking this time. The mattress pad and sheets did not fit the bed. The sheets were very thin and terribly worn, the elastic was stretched out completely and the mattress pad was too small for the size mattress. We woke many times during the night to replace the pad and sheets. This made sleeping very difficult. In spite of the lack of sleep the rest of the experience was very good.
Looking for cabin style on water edge not here
Very Nice, couldn't ask for nicer accommodations
Clean, convenient location. Very pleased with our stay.
We really enjoyed the condo and the amenities, particularly the beautiful pool, which we had nearly all to ourselves. Construction work being done the parking lot on our last day made packing our vehicle very difficult, but other than that, no complaints.
This property is very nice. It's in a good location for skiing and food. I would have liked to see some spices and Cooking spray stocked as well as shampoo.
The only other down side is for a two night stay the Cleaning fee was just about the same amount as the 2 night base amount. The cleaning fee shouldn't be that much
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.
