We had a very relaxing stay at this wonderful home with easy access to Northstar and all its amenities, Kings Beach as well as Truckee and Donner Lake. The location made it great to explore All Northshore has to offer. Kathi was awesome ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay. The house was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the evenings on the deck. The extra refrigerator/freezer in the garage was awesome. The beds were comfortable and my husband loved the huge garage for all the bikes we brought. Just a lovely home bordering the woods for a morning/evening walk. Thank you again Kathi for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home with my mom and 100 year old grandmother. It was great as they did not have to worry about going up and down stairs and just stayed on the bottom floor while the kids enjoyed the upstairs. We will cherish the memories.
What a wonderful place to spend the winter! We always looked forward to coming "home" at the end of our drive from San Francisco or at the end of a day on the slopes. The house offers a warmth that we've rarely found in vacation rentals, with comfortable spaces for friends and family to relax. We had plenty of room for two families of four. The location makes for easy access to the ski village -- easy five minute free shuttle ride -- while truly being on the edge of the forest. Our little girls loved the easy access to nature, building snowmen and sled paths, exploring trails and creeks -- all just steps off the back deck.
Kathi makes sure the house is clean, well maintained, and ready to be home -- the bedrooms have all the right blankets, the kitchen has all the right knives, spices, pots and pans.
We can't wait to come back!
This was our third July in this amazing house, and, although each visit has been different, a number of unique characteristics keep reminding us that it is, by far, our favorite house in Northstar.
1. We have access to the garage (with two garage openers). That makes it so easy to store bikes, golf clubs and kayaks in the summer. I'm sure the convenience is even more important in the winter with skis and snowboards.
2. The garage is so tall that the kayaks could stay on the car in the garage.
3. There's a second refrigerator in the garage, which is really helpful when there's a full house.
4. The upstairs is like a separate apartment, so the visiting grandchildren and their parents had some privacy. It made our vacation even better.
5. Some of the newer houses and condos don't have access to the pools and rec center. The adult area is my favorite place. It's quiet and I can sit on a step in the pool and read. For kids, the main pool is just as perfect, with a wading area for younger kids and deeper area for swimming.
6. Unlike most houses in Northstar, this house has a level "yard" off the deck. It makes it easy to go for a walk in the woods.
I could go on and on. Kathi and Mike take pride in making sure their home is as welcoming as they are. As long as I can always return to "my" vacation home, I would be happy to share it with you!!
We had the pleasure of staying at this home in September and I cannot recommend it enough. We stayed with another family and we both have kids. So, the two bedrooms downstairs were perfect for the parents. The two upstairs bedrooms with four single beds and a connecting living room made it so nice for the kids.
The house is very nicely decorated and well stocked. We cooked in every night and really just enjoyed being in the home.
The neighborhood is great and the shuttle service to take you to the Village was very convenient.
We hope to stay at this house again in the near future!
My family's recent stay at this lovely Northstar home turned out to be the perfect family vacation. This home was ideal for eight adults and three toddlers. After hours of searching various vacation rental sites, I knew immediately when I came across this home that it was just what I was looking for. My family has been visiting Northstar for over 20 years, cramming ourselves into small condos. It was finally time to upgrade to a spacious house. The entire house has been recently remodeled with beautiful granite countertops, lovely tile, new flooring,, and excellent lighting. The kitchen is a delight to be in with modern appliances and a fabulous view of the pines from the window over the sink. All of the bathrooms have amazing new tile and designer touches. Both the upstairs den and downstairs livingroom are tastefully decorated with very comfortable furnishings. There is a big flat screen tv in both living areas. Our favorite part of this home was the large deck among the pines off the rear of the home. We enjoyed relaxing and dining on the deck and spent most of our time out there. My grandsons loved running around in the outdoor area beyond the deck hunting for pine cones and chipmunks. Another nice feature is the large, attached garage. There was room for two of our cars in the garage, plus ample parking on the driveway. I cannot say enough positive things about this home. Just look at the online pictures, and you will see what I am talking about. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
Not only is this home a great value, but the access to the Northstar recreation center is a huge bonus. We love the pools, hot tubs, baby pool, tennis courts, game room, and gym. This year they have even added two bocce ball courts. The rec center and Northstar Village are a short drive or a pleasant walk down the road. It also only takes a few minutes to drive to Lake Tahoe.
My transaction with the owner, Kathi, was smooth and professioinal. She is very organized, and her correspondence is always timely. Thanks again, Kathy, for renting your Northstar home to me and my family. We hope to return soon.
Our family have been spending summers at Northstar for over 20 years. Throughout this time we have progressed from 2 bedroom condos to small houses and now to this home. For two adults with three grown kids it proved ideal for our needs and could easily accommodate a larger group. With two master bedrooms downstairs and a private extra living room upstairs along with two more bedrooms it would be perfect for two families. Our daughter who loves to cook found the fully equipped kitchen perfect, and the large deck allowed us all to comfortably dine outside with the lovely ambiance of the woods. I've not always been comfortable booking rental properties thru homeowner sites but in this case all went well and Kathi (owner) provided a completely profession and friendly service easily the equal of any hotel I've used, and certainly better value than using Northstar's own rental service. Plus this home offers access to the recreation center. In summary, highly recommended, great service from the owner and we will be back. The Danvers Family.
