KID FRIENDLY CONDO SKI IN/SKI OUT TO TAHOE DONNER SKI SLOPES!

Donner Lake Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

We bought our 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo (sleeps 6) when our twin girls were two years old so they could grow up enjoying mountain life. We designed a kid-friendly condo that would grow as our kids grow, but always be a fun, safe environment for infants, toddlers, and young children.

Primarily reserved for family and friends, we rent our second home on a limited basis only, and treat our condo as our second home, because that’s what it truly is!

Set in the exclusive Tahoe Donner neighborhood, access to our home away from home is designed to be our refuge in the mountains away from the distractions of everyday life. While TahoeDonner offers a range of amenities, we have no cable, and no internet -- on purpose! We use our home as a way to spend time with our family.

Subject to seasonal closures, amenities include all that Tahoe Donner has to offer:

¨ 50 yards from Tahoe Donner Downhill ski slopes. Considered a kid-friendly ski hill and “The Best Place to Begin”.

¨ Central access to the best ski slopes in the North Lake Tahoe area such as Northstar, Squaw Valley USA, Alpine, Sugarbowl, and Boreal.

¨ Three Pools & Spas

¨ Golf Course & Tennis Center

¨ Private Beach at Donner Lake

¨ Equestrian Center

¨ Cross Country Center

¨ Alder Creek Campground

¨ Day Camps for Children

¨ Hiking Trails

¨ Minutes from Historic Truckee, outlet shopping, and fine dining.

¨ Convenient on/off access to I-80 freeway. Don’t fight the traffic coming up from Lake Tahoe!

30 minutes from Lake Tahoe's North Shore.

Details: The unit includes 1 car garage, washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, wood burning stove, electric range & oven, microwave, TV with DVD/VCR, stereo. There is no cable and no wifi -- bring board games or a deck of cards, and rediscover your family!

Sorry, no smoking and no pets. You provide your own sheets and towels.

Great Place for Families

  • 5 of 5
This condo was perfect for our family of four. Like the owner says, it is not one of the super fancy resort style condos, but it is very comfortable and has great amenities. The kitchen is stocked full of everything you need to cook at home, having a washer and dryer in the unit is awesome, and the perks that come with staying in the Ski Bowl condos are great for families- private beach, pools, and an awesome park. We had a wonderful time and David was very easy to work with!

Nice Condo in Truckee

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. It fits a family of 4 really comfortably, the pool and rec room are an added bonus. Easy drive to the lake. Would suggest making it really clear that you need to provide your own sheets and towels. Had to purchase another set since I didn't see it in the paperwork originally. Other than that issue, I'd go back for more for sure.

Perfect location for skiing!!

  • 4 of 5
This was my family's first time skiing and we were able to stay at this great condo which is centrally located to just about anything which was great for us. The condo was the perfect size for our family of four. It was clean and comfortable and had enough space for all of us to roam. We would definitely stay there again.

Awesome Tahoe-Donner condo!

  • 5 of 5
Great place...
pros:
Two bedrooms
Located right at Tahoe Donner resort
Utensils/plates/etc provided
Pool area with not tub
Reasonable rates
Easy key pickup

Cons:
Hmmm....not really anything....
Maybe you have to bring your own sheets? Not really a biggie.
Have to do a little light housekeeping as you depart. Again, not a big deal.

We had a great time and hope to return next summer :)

Not good if travelers make mistakes

  • 1 of 5
I travelled all the way from Asia to Truckee to visit a friend and stayed at the condo. I booked it months ahead.
I accidentally booked 3 nights instead of 2 nights and immediately e-mailed the owner the following day. He never responded. I could have booked something much nicer.
On the day of arrival, I lost my way, called the owner. He was defensive and rude.
The condo was a bit old. Size is fine for small family. Good that there are two toilets.

Owner's Response: I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience these travelers faced. In response to their complaints:

1) Extra booking night: I did offer to remove their extra night, but they never responded. In fact, they emailed me later in the week asking about what to bring to the condo and did not request the removal of the extra day, so I assumed they changed their mind and decided to stay the extra day.

2) "Could have booked something much nicer" and "Condo is a bit old". Our VRBO listing is very, very honest. We are renting our family home, NOT a 5-star resort. These guests called me the day before arrival to ask why we didn't have wifi. However, we CLEARLY state in our listing that there is no wifi at our home. We agree that if you want luxury living, you should NOT book our home. If you are looking for a quiet mountain getaway for you and your family, we hope you will consider our home. I apologize that our home was not what these travelers were looking for, but at $100/night (summer) we think our home is very reasonably priced for what you get.

3) "We lost our way and owner was rude". I admit I lost my cool with the travelers when they called me at 11:30 PM on Friday night to report they were lost. But ONLY after I spent a long time trying to help them find their way. Our directions to our house are very clear -- we list directions to the mile, and lay out turn-by-turn directions. However, as I tried to help these travelers find their way, he kept saying, "You need to tell me where the house is," and "Your directions are not clear." Neither comment was helpful to the situation, and I kept trying to steer the conversation to helping him find his way by telling me where he was. Finally, when he stated, "We are from out of the country, and you are not helpful to us", I do admit I lost my cool and said, "What does that have to do with anything? I'm trying to help you find your way, but you keep telling me my directions are not clear. I am trying to help clarify my directions. Do you want my help or not?" At which point, he hung up on me. In hindsight, I apologize for losing my cool, but it was clear to me the traveler was mad that he was lost and was calling to vent to me and not actually seeking any help.

All I can say in response is -- please read our listing very carefully to see if it suits your needs. And if you drive up at night, the mountains are very dark, so you need to follow directions carefully!

Perfect for families of young kids for a weekend / ski getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a quick weekend spring skiing trip to Tahoe. Tahoe Donner is such a perfect place for families and young children. We have a young family (4.5 year old son, 1.5 year old daughter) so proximity to the ski slope and a family friendly rental was a must. The description and pictures in this listing were perfect, as were the detailed instructions left for us in the condo for how to operate all the equipment and household appliances.

Both bedrooms are very spacious - they are roughly 7 steps up from the main level which was perfect for our needs because we put our children to sleep at night and then had a chance to sit in the living area without disturbing them.

The kitchen is well equipped for cooking dinners and has all the necessities you will need. We cooked every meal and there was even tupperware available that we used to store the leftovers for the next day. The condo is exactly as described - it's a family's home away from home - not fancy but more than adequate and the furniture was all comfortable. Unlike another review, we had no problem at all operating the wood furnace, it heated the living area well and made it very cozy.

The best part is that this condo is literally steps from the downhill ski area - this enabled my spouse and baby daughter to come visit with us on the ski slope and easily walk home afterwards for her afternoon nap. It was so nice and easy to just walk to the ski area - we even walked home for a nice relaxing lunch before heading back out for more skiing in the afternoon. Thanks for a fun weekend!!
