This condominium is in the perfect location. It is very close to highway 80. Right next door is a shopping center with a grocery store, a sporting goods store and a very good Mexican restaurant and a Subway sandwich store. A short few blocks away is Ace Hardware, Starbucks, Panda Express, banks and Safeway. For skiers, there are 3 ski resorts nearby - Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar. For hikers there are several good trails nearby - the 5 Lakes trailhead is close to Alpine Meadows in the Granite Chief Wilderness, and there is easy access to the Pacific Crest trail, to name just a few. The Truckee River is close by and in summer you can easily rent a raft and float down it for a scenic and fun afternoon. The current is very slow so children can safely accompany you.
The condominium itself is in a 4 unit building and is very quiet. The owners of the other units are there on the weekends during the ski season, otherwise I hardly see them. The unit itself has a view of the mountains from the living room and deck. It is decorated in a European style with clean simple lines and new furniture. It has a sense of coziness. It also is the owner's vacation home, so it has personal touches like a still-life painted by a family member and an autographed portrait of an Iditorrod winner hanging on the wall. It is well kept and clean.

The Boulders complex is in a perfect location for a mountain getaway. I come here often to ski at Northstar in the winter and in the summer to hike and play golf, often inviting a few friends to join me. The 9 hole course at Brockway in Kings Beach is my favorite golf course. I am a San Francisco Bay Area native and I make my living as a pharmacist.
I choose to buy a vacation rental at the Boulders because the units were clean and new. I liked the slate floors and the knotty pine doors and the slate fireplace. I fell in love with the kitchen with its interesting combination of sleek and modern stainless steel appliances, a high end range and its mountain home-flavored knotty pine pantry door, maple cabinets and slate floor. It also had a garage which is kind to my car in the winter. It is a fast easy in and out since it is right off the route 89 exit from highway 80. It is a 15 minute drive to Northstar and a 10 minute drive to downtown Truckee.
I enjoy alpine skiing at Northstar, cross-country skiing at Royal Gorge in winter. In the summer I enjoy rafting down the Truckee River, swimming in Lake Tahoe, swimming at the lap pool on the Boulders property and hiking many of the nearby trails. I also enjoy going out to eat at Los Altos and Cottonwood restaurants.
