HALE MAUKA - FAMILY-FRIENDLY 3BD/2BA HOUSE WITH MODERN FURNISHINGS

Tahoe Donner House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Welcome to Hale Mauka, our 'home in the mountains'. Our three bedroom, two bath house is truly our second home in Tahoe Donner. We are proud to be able to share it with you throughout the year.

Hale Mauka can comfortably sleep eight guests. A downstairs master suite with a 42in TV is down the hall from the full kitchen. Upstairs, the 'kid's room' contains two sets of bunk beds and a pair of fat boy bean bag stools for lounging. The other upstairs room has a 42in TV and queen bed. A full living room and dining room combine to give lots of room for families to stretch out and relax after a full day enjoying the Tahoe surroundings. There is a wood stove in the living room that can heat the entire home; baseboard heaters and humidifiers are also in each room to further control the temperature.

Don't want to totally unplug while you're away? No worries -- high speed internet is included along with free WiFi for guests. Three LCD Smart TVs (55in in the living room, 42in in two bedrooms) have built-in Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime connections so you can stream videos to your heart's content. The living room TV also includes an HD cable feed so you can watch the major sports games in real time. A Mac Mini is in the loft along with an Airprint-capable printer, so you can surf the web or even get some work done if needed.

Located on Alder Creek Road, it is one of the first thoroughfares in Tahoe Donner to get plowed, providing clear access to your snow sport destinations. The Tahoe Donner Downhill ski area is 5 minutes away, as is the Cross Country/Equestrian center. An easy jaunt down 89 takes you to Northstar, Squaw and other Tahoe destinations.

Great views of Alder Creek can be seen from the front deck. The rear deck leads to a wonderful backyard play area where kids can go downhill with the provided sleds or just roll around in the snow. You can even play horseshoes in the horseshoe pitch in the front yard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, utensils, and dinnerware. There is also a full size washer and dryer so you can pack lightly.

Guests (for a nominal fee) have access to all Tahoe Donner amenities, including downhill and cross country skiing, snow play, equestrian center, mountain biking, orienteering (geocaching), tennis courts, pools, Trout Creek Recreation Center, and Tahoe Donner Golf Course.

High thread-count sheets, down comforters and memory foam mattresses on all beds, along with soft towels ensure that you can relax in luxury after a full day of fun.

We love being able to get away from the bustling city to enjoy the outdoors.

Owner/ Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

We chose this house because of its proximity to all of the Tahoe Donner amenities, including downhill and cross country skiing, the equestrian center, and all the trails for hiking and biking. Its location on a main Tahoe Donner thoroughfare greatly reduces the chances of getting snowed in or out.

Even though this is our vacation get-away, it's still nice to be connected when we want to be. Free WiFi and multiple large screen TVs ensure we have plenty of entertainment. The slope in the backyard is great fun all year round; it's great for sledding in the winter.

We stayed at this property for a mini-ski vacation, 2 nights in late March 2014, as a 2-family group, with 4 kids (ages 3-6).
The house is recently updated, and clean; accommodated our group of 8 comfortably; very happy with the find and stay.
This is the 5th house we rented in Tahoe so far; would definitely choose this one again for future trips.

Excellent Place for family

This house is ideal for family with small kids. Stayed three night there during holiday season with a friend's family. The kids absolutely loved the bunker bed room. The kitchen had everything we needed. In fact, we invited three families who were renting nearby to have dinner with us. Everything was cooked in that kitchen! The living area was spacious and kids had lots fun watching DVD and games. The area was very quite at night, but also close to nearby ski places such as Boreal and Soda Springs. The humidifier in each bedroom was really helpful too.

Summer weekend at Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids) have spent a weekend in the house. The house was spacious enough for 2 families and it was very convenient to have a bedroom that could fit all the kids! The house is well-maintained and beautifully decorated; everything is sparkling clean. All beds are extremely comfortable, including trunk beds in kids bedroom. Kitchen is well stocked - you can find everything you need for cooking.
The location of the house is great for summer travel! It's away from Tahoe crowds & there are many activities within walking distance (or very short drive) around the house. Here are just a few things that we've done: hiked Alder creek trail which is right across the street; went mountain biking - an equestrian center and mountain biking rental is within a mile from the house, but you can bike directly from the house if you have your own bike. Donner lake is 5-7 min. drive. Many thanks to the owners for keeping the house in such a great shape! - it does not feel like a rental house at all, more like a home; we can't wait to go there again!

Perfect Winter and Summer Getaway

My first stay at Hale Mauka was last March, when there was still soft snow on the ground. The home was easy to find but tucked into a quiet but welcoming neighborhood. Upon entering through the front door, we were greeted with a warm, clean, and welcoming open kitchen, dining room, and living room. There were plenty of amenities such as clean linens, clean rooms, entertainment systems in each room, a fully furnished kitchen, and a new washer and dryer that made the house extremely comfortable and welcoming. The home is not too far from downtown Truckee where we were able to grab coffee in the morning and have a nice lunch in the afternoon, before going home to cook dinner in the kitchen. The best part about the location was that we were close to snow shoeing and hiking trails. We definitely took advantage of the local Truckee Ski Resort and the beautiful public trails that were all about a 10-15min drive away. After full days of physical activity, it was fantastic to come "home" to a clean and comfortable retreat and enjoy the evening having dinner in the living room and then reading and sitting by the fireplace.

My second and most recent trip was last June, when the snow was mostly melted, leaving vast open space and miles and miles of trails to explore by foot. The house was just as welcoming and comfortable, but during this trip we were able to take advantage of relaxing by Donner Lake. My friend ended up kayaking in the lake while I was exploring in the woods. The perfect evening weather and sunset inspired us to make hearty meals in the kitchen both evenings and eating dinner right outside on the private porch.

I'm already excited about visiting again because the location, ambiance, and proximity to town and trails is really a key to making my long weekend vacations a hit!

Winter 2013 Stay

We spent about a week at the property in order to snowboard at nearby Squaw and Alpine meadows. The drive was an easy one from SF and Ed provided excellent directions. The house was warmly prepared for our visit with a welcoming fire and fresh linens. The property is conveniently located near the town of Truckee, where we were able to pick up groceries or grab dinner or coffee after a day on the mountain. It was also easy to get to the mountains. There are other activities in the community that seemed great for families, but we didn't get a chance to try them out. Overall, we had a great time and really enjoyed the feeling of returning "home" after a day of snowboarding.
