We were happy with this property but there were a few things that needed attention. The dish washer was ready to fall out of the island counter, the living room thermostat did not work but it was not an issue due to the temp, the apartment was not clean. Carpet needs to be cleaned or replaced, it's worn out. Now with this said it was still a nice place to stay and we will return.

Best Value in Northstar Village

I loved the property and location to everything. I am definitely planning to stay again. Great views. Furniture a little worn, but comfortable. All in all very happy.

The owner was great, overlooking the skating rink is awesome. My kids are young and having all the activities the village provides is great.

Great Stay! (excellent location, well maintained, and clean!)

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in several different property's at Lake Tahoe and this one is definitely the best. This condo is well situated, very clean, came with all necessary amenities; full kitchen, fire place, wifi, flat screen tv, dvd player, and access to a locker in the lobby. The host was quick to respond to my questions even before I started my stay. He even gave dinner recommendations for dining out with family and kids. We will definitely stay here again!

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! (when it's snowing!)

  • 1 of 5

Overall this was the WORST VRBO rental we have ever had. The location is great if you're looking for ski in- ski-out accommodations BUT if it is snowing (and it was the entire time we were there) the Northstar crews will be plowing and shoveling with their loud machines and the reverse beeping noises all night long. And I mean all night long. It was the worst 3 nights sleep I've had since I had infants to care for. And of course there is nothing they can do. They have to plow the walkways and the ice rink from 12 am- 6am, all of which are right outside your bedroom window with cheap windows and walls that let every sound in!

As for the condo itself, it has seen better days, is dated, and was not clean when we arrived. The dishwasher is a safety hazard and the bottom rack, which was heavy and full of dishes, fell out onto the floor because the unit was not stable.

The only redeeming thing about this place is that it is a great location. If you're guaranteed sunny, snowless days in Tahoe during ski season, or can sleep through anything, you might consider staying here. Otherwise, look for other options where you can enjoy some peace and quiet and the beautiful nature around you.

We complained to the owner about these issues and he offered us $100 refund, which we never received, and really, he can keep it. Maybe he can use it to fix that dishwasher!

Owner's Response: come on! being this close to the mountain when there's tons of snow is the biggest asset to this condo. they have to clear walkways on those days with machinery, sadly that isn't the owner's fault. I was unaware of the dishwasher and sent a repairman out to fix the problem. Sorry there was too much snow during your stay. Most would only dream of this nuisance.
