About Mike Straus

We grew up spending our summers on lakes (in Michigan and New Jersey) and wanted to have that same experience for our future family here in California. Currently residents in Marin County after having formally lived in San Francisco, we wanted to have our lake experience here and Lake Tahoe was a natural fit as we have enjoyed in in summers and winters for years since we each moved to California.

Mike Straus purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Mike Straus chose Lake Forest

It was important for use to have a place on a lake as we both spent our summers with lake living growing up, and we love Tahoe for Skiing in the winter and all the great outdoor activities in the summer. We wanted to be in North Lake Tahoe as we both loved Tahoe City and all the North shore has to offer. We wanted to be close to Tahoe City (within biking distance) and near both the Lake and bike path.

We found this great unit in Lake Forest Glen and not only was it close to Tahoe City and the lake, but this unit was near the back Bristlecone st exit making it easy to hop on a bike to the bike path or walk to the lake at Lake Forest Beach or the great hidden gem of Skylandia Park. We also loved the great remodel and mountain cabin theme inside and the south facing deck with plenty of sun all day long! We love staying here and we hope you will too!

What makes this townhome unique

The south facing deck gets lots of sun all day and is a great place to enjoy morning coffee. Inside the pine trim and log furniture give it a truly Tahoe feeling! Gas fireplace makes livingroom warm and inviting.

Another 5-star stay!

  • 5 of 5
The unit was beautiful, everything was very well maintained, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The notebook with instructions was well organized and comprehensive. Internet was fast (22Mbps download), reliable, and strong (full signal in the upstairs bedrooms). The only issue we had is that the top bunk of the bunk bed was squeaky, so we put the mattress on the floor.

Both pools were clean, warm, and in excellent repair. There were bathrooms on-site. The family pool had lots of rings, noodles, and balls to play with. You can park right next to the family pool. The adult pool is in the middle of a grassy area with beautiful landscaping and a gazebo. We were allowed to take our kids into the adult pool, sauna, and hot tub (101 degrees) when there were no adults using them.

Tahoe City recycles everything from the dumpsters, so there's no need to sort and no worries about the environment. Thanks Mike, for a great place to stay!

Sorry to hear the bunk bed was squeaking. I will try to tighten the bolts to see if that fixes it.

family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We were in Tahoe City for a family reunion. We found this condo to be reasonably priced, very clean, well-equipped, and the owner was very responsive. It was centrally located to the other family members in our group, close to amenities. I would highly recommend this condo.

tahoe fun

  • 5 of 5
The place was fantastic. The owners thougth of eveything. The kitchen was fully equipped with upgraded appliance, tons of cooking tools. A very clean place. The grounds were nice and close walk to the lake. The only negative was the fireplace would not turn on, was not a big deal as it was warm weather. I would definately stay there again.

Owner's Response: I am glad to hear you had a good stay.

I am Sorry to hear the fire place would not turn on for you. It turns out the pilot went out (this seems to happen a couple times a year). If you decide to stay again in the future you may call me with the contact information provided for help resolving this. I will also leave instructions for how to re-light and I have asked the person handling rental turnover to check this between rentals so it can be relight if needed.

I hope you will decide to stay again in the future. If you do please mention you are a repeat guest!

Condo Stay

  • 4 of 5
The amenities were nice. The condo was spacious and furnishings were in good condition. The kitchen was very nicely equipped which was great! Owner allowed us an early check-in too. My only negative was that there was not any air conditioning. Normally this isn't a problem in Tahoe, but the weekend we stayed the average daily temperature was in the mid-90's so air conditioning would have been really nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear how hot it was during your stay. Virtually all private rentals in Tahoe do not have Air Conditioning - it is very rare in Tahoe as typically temperatures are not that hot and it cools off a lot at night. We are getting some new fans for the rooms which will hopefully help keep comfortable in future heat waves by moving the air and helping the cooler air get inside in the evenings. I am glad you were happy with the rest of your stay and hope you will consider staying with us again.

North Lake Tahoe is a must go destination. This property is 1.6 miles from Tahoe city (right along a great bike path), which is home to a number of great restaurants, bars and shops. The Lake and a couple great beaches are a short walk, bike or drive in the Lake Forest/Tahoe city area. Great mountain biking and hiking are a short distance away. The Condo complex has great amenities and tons to do in the area!

The Coast Guard boat ramp is right off lake Forest rd, so if you are trailing a boat you can launch without even going to the main road.
