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 Tahoe North Shore

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.

Convenient location; had everything we needed/wanted!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe and we were very pleased with the accommodations. There were only four of us, so there was plenty of room to spread out. We cooked all of our meals in and the kitchen was well stocked (and then some!) with all the basics, pots and pans, utensils, etc. Beds were comfortable. Ceiling fans would have been nice, but there were plenty of portable fans for all the rooms. The lake is a beautiful, five-minute walk away; pool and hot tub close, but not so close we could hear it. The complex is well maintained and quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a nice stay and hope you will come back as a repeat guest in the future. Thank you for your feedback about ceiling fans. I agree that would be a good addition, particularly in the living room and master bedroom. I will add that to my list of improvement projects.

Wonderfully relaxing week in a well-apportioned home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with everything the visitor needs to enjoy Lake Tahoe. The back patio/deck is fabulous for relaxing and enjoying meals cooked in a well-stocked kitchen. From coffee maker to blender, toaster, crockpot, utensils, and pots and pans, the cook will have everything required for preparing meals. Wifi and cable TV enable visitors to stay as connected and entertained as desired. We found the home clean and well maintained, and its advertised description certainly lived up to our expectations. The lake is only a short walk away, and biking into Tahoe City takes only about 12 mins. There is plenty of shopping and dining available there. In Lake Forest Glen, the pool and tennis courts offer additional opportunities for activities. Miniature golf and a nice beach are close by in Carnelian Bay. A 30-min. + drive takes one to beautiful Emerald Bay, where we were able to hike. We were completely satisfied with our stay and appreciated all the amenities provided by the homeowner. I have no hesitation recommending this vacation home to others.

Fantastic Home with everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 people stay in this home for 4 days. The location was fantastic with a walk to a great little beach close by. It is close to a multi use trail for rides and runs! Some of us road around lake tahoe from the house! Amazing! The house is super comfortable. The couches are very cozy. The Beds super comfortable and with a total of 7 beds, no one had to share. The Kitchen is very well stocked with utensils, pots, pans and really had everything you need. And really nice appliances that all worked great. The house also was well provisioned with ample towels, extra blankets, fans, extra chairs, blow dryer, shampoo and Method cleaning products :-). You name it, the house had it. Plenty of seating for us all to eat in the morning. We definitely enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this rental to parties of 6-10!

Beautiful Condo/great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect solution for us as one of our family members is disabled and cannot use the stairs.

We were able to park right at the front door and then just one small step into the entryway.

There is a nice size bedroom downstairs with a bathroom just across the hall. The washer/dryer is also downstair

which was very convenient.

We had only two of our adult children and one grandchild with us, but there is plenty of room for 10 guests.

We look forward to staying here again as part of our annual Tahoe family reunion.

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!

Lake Tahoe is a short walk away with Lake Forest beach and Skylandia Park and beach near by. The Bike bath into tahoe city is very close outside of the complex as well. 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.
