Wonderful location Overall, I was pleased with this rental. The location was excellent - about a 5 minute walk to Lake Tahoe and in the middle of a bunch of cute little towns. The swimming pool was huge and very nice. The size of the condo was okay for my family of five but might be a little tight with older children.<br/><br/>Complaints:<br/>1. The microwave did not work at all.<br/>2. Zero channels on the tv worked. Not a gamechanger for me but would've been nice to have something to watch at night when the kids went to bed.<br/>3. We had issues getting the ac to run. The loft got especially warm at night. The entire place was very warm when the dryer or dishwasher was running.<br/><br/>I would stay at this location again as those 3 things aren't that big of a deal to my family or me. I would recommend fixing the microwave and addressing the ac though.

Wonderful stay at Serenity Overall a great experience. The condo was clean, and well stocked. It was a little smaller than I anticipated. We had to move furniture around in order to all sit at the table together and then back in order to fit in the living room together. While the property technically accommodates 5 or 6, it felt a little tight for our family of five. The property management was very good with communication and prompt responses. Unfortunately, because of Covid, all of the amenities were shut down and this wasn't clearly stated on the website for updates regarding this. The website discussed limiting hours and capacity of certain facilities, but when we arrived we were told by a neighbor that everything was closed. So, that was a bit disappointing. Other than that, we had a great time. The condo is located in a wonderful location.

Great location only. Not worth the money. Hot tub and pool were closed on the days we were there and on the days they were open it was for like a 3 hr window in the morning. Totally ruined mine and my bfs birthday. Also the tv is outdated and couldn&#x2019;t enjoy the airbnb as we couldn&#x2019;t watch Netflix or anything that didn&#x2019;t include commercials. The kitchen has all the pots and pans you need to cook and if you&#x2019;re coming w your family and don&#x2019;t enjoy watching your fav shows or getting your moneys worth ... this is the place for you. I&#x2019;ll also add that it did come equipped with plenty of towels and the space was big enough for 2 but we were told the pool and hot tub would be open (a deal breaker for us). They did mention that you had to bring your own toiletries etc but with everything else it lacked I feel like wasn&#x2019;t worth the price and should have saved my money by staying in a hotel.

Home-y conveniently located condo The impeccably clean well appointed condo was comfortable and welcoming. Bedding was recent and linens of good quality & plentiful. Overall I would recommend and/or stay here again. However there were a few quirks. First, with no grate in the fireplace, it is nearly impossible to light a fire, rendering the fireplace merely decorative. Second, while the hot tubs were GREAT (warm, clean) no pool available in winter :-( The location of the property is PERFECT if you are planning on skiing northern Lake Tahoe Resorts.

Still OK but clearly shows signs of neglect We have been renting this unit for at least last couple years or so, typically in spring/summer and winter. We have enjoyed the unit, which is still reasonably OK but it clearly shows signs of neglect. Cleanliness of carpets is far from desired. Kitchen is equipped but barely for family cooking, we typically bring our own cooking utensils etc. Bunch of minor but noticeable things like heating vent cover by the entrance, which has not been fixed perhaps at least a year etc. Balcony looks like it has been cleaned long time ago. Overall, still perhaps okay but clearly could use some TLC besides just the-end-of-stay cleaning.

Carnelian Woods Getaway Unit was as expected based on photos online. IT could have accommodated up to 6, but we decided on just US, for some R & R! We chose Carnelian Woods because we owned a unit there for 22 years and like the location and the mountainy feel of these units. This unit was updated and nicely (warmly) decorated. I especially liked the feel of the loft, though we didn't use it at all. It would be fun to come there again with another couple. We liked having breakfast at the Post Office, walking distance, as we had done many times before. The biggest negative was all the paperwork, contract signing, faxing required.

Perfect for a family of four - but remember no air con here This was an ample sized 4 bed property. It was very clean. Everything you could want for the week was provided. In L.Tahoe you don't spend much time indoors so the size was fine. Mezzanine level upstairs would've been a problem if we had younger children as they would've been kept awake until we had gone to bed. Fly screen downstairs was damaged so we weren't able to have the balcony doors open in the evening. View from balcony was just of woodland nothing pretty. Very small shower room for everyone to use, just a toilet upstairs. Really odd guy working at reception who was really quite rude when I asked where I check in. He was sitting in the games room with his feet up on a table watching tv so I wasn't sure if he was a guest, I asked about reception being manned. After asking twice he said "I was just waiting for you to ask in the right way" Pool at the rec centre was clean, large and generally empty. Hot tubs were great too. I would consider staying there again, mostly because of the central location of Carnelian bay, and it is a really nice quiet area but I'd check the view from the property and may be get one closer to the pool area.

Condo in Tahoe I booked this condo on very short notice. We needed a place to take our grandchildren to get them out of the poor air quality in Napa, CA while the fires were very active there in mid-October. The management company was very helpful as we booked, then cancelled and booked again within a day because the conditions in Napa, CA kept changing. The kitchen indeed had lots of dishes, silverware, cookware and cooking utensils. The pictures on-line were very representative of the actual accommodations. One recommendation - more towel rods and/or towel rings in the bathrooms. There was not enough space to spread out towels to dry properly.

Three minor issues should be corrected: 1)the contact number in my printout and in the notebook at the condo was not inservice 2) there was no mention of a parking permit being needed in my instruction packet from the internet nor in the notebook in the condo (we received a note on the windshield and had to go to the clubhouse for the permit) 3. there seems to be a wireless connection but the clubhouse person said it was silly but no one knew the code and you are paying for it!

That disappointment hardly made a dent in our delight in having found this great gem of a vacation spot! We will return.

Review comments We would say the only thing to comment on is the lack of cleaning products to use. As we were asked to ensure the condo was clean when departing, it would be good to have a supply of additional sponges, gloves and a multi purpose cleaner.<br/>Also the toaster did not work efficiently and the selection of knives were all blunt and unsafe for use.<br/>We hope this is constructive feedback and thank you very much once again.<br/>

Not quite Delux The property stank of smoke and while the property manager was willing to move us we'd already moved in and were tired and didn't want to repack and move out; also while the kitchen had been upgraded and was gorgeous the living room was so stuffed with furniture 4 people couldn't move around in it and there was only seating on couch for 3. Between the couch, the barstools , the throw pillows have to move off couch to sit, table and chairs, and coffee table there was no floor space at all. Linens in the bedroom were old, worn and mismatched - not what you'd expect when paying for a delux accomodation. Remodel in kitchen and downstairs bath were nice. Living room furniture in good shape. Bedroom and loft furniture worn. Response from First Accommodations; Friday, February 19, 2010 A previous renter mismanaged the fireplace, which drew smoke into the property. It's in the process of being remedied.

Carnelian Bay Condo. We were very satisfied with the unit we selected, the place was very well done from the front door to the great forest view from the deck. A quiet place away from the hustle and noise of other North Lake Tahoe areas. The condo had very comfortable furniture, a remodeled kitchen with granite, new appliances, and all you need for meal prep. We liked the quiet location for exploring the Tahoe area. Check in and out was very smooth, like coming home. We will be back!

great place & locale GREAT, comfortable place w/ everything we needed, parking spaces were plowed so we got in & out easily despite the big dump of snow, also enjoyed the rec center sauna, jacuzzi, wi-fi and reading by the great fireplace. Only 2 complaints which moved my rating from 5 down to 4 stars: 1. The heating was noisy and kept me up at night - also the vents blow directly over the kitchen counter where we sat to eat; 2. there was only enough hot water for 2 showers, which was a problem since we were a party of 5 (one less than the max of 6 allowed). Probably no way to fix that, but just knowing is helpful so you can plan very short showers, staggered schedules and showering at the rec center.

The condo was very clean, which is always my biggest concern. Everything was there that we needed, and it was centrally located for all our needs. The bed in the master bedroom could use some work. The bed is low to the floor and somewhat uncomfortable. We both slept OK but there is some room for improvement. Otherwise, the stay was great!

This was an ample sized 4 bed property. It was very clean. Everything you could want for the week was provided. In L.Tahoe you don't spend much time indoors so the size was fine. Mezzanine level upstairs would've been a problem if we had younger children as they would've been kept awake until we had gone to bed. Fly screen downstairs was damaged so we weren't able to have the balcony doors open in the evening. View from balcony was just of woodland nothing pretty. Very small shower room for everyone to use, just a toilet upstairs. Really odd guy working at reception who was really quite rude when I asked where I check in. He was sitting in the games room with his feet up on a table watching tv so I wasn't sure if he was a guest, I asked about reception being manned. After asking twice he said "I was just waiting for you to ask in the right way" Pool at the rec centre was clean, large and generally empty. Hot tubs were great too. I would consider staying there again, mostly because of the central location of C

House was very clean and comfortable, like a true home. The living room was a bit cramped with a sofa and table, but since we didn't have more than 4 guests it was manageable. The only downside is that it was advertised as 2 Bedroom, with 2 twins and 1 Queen. It is actually 1 Bedroom with a Full bed, and a loft with 2 singles. The Full bed is too small for 2 adults, so that was a bit tough.

Unit was as expected based on photos online. IT could have accommodated up to 6, but we decided on just US, for some R & R! We chose Carnelian Woods because we owned a unit there for 22 years and like the location and the mountainy feel of these units. This unit was updated and nicely (warmly) decorated. I especially liked the feel of the loft, though we didn't use it at all. It would be fun to come there again with another couple. We liked having breakfast at the Post Office, walking distance, as we had done many times before. The biggest negative was all the paperwork, contract signing, faxing required. It seemed to make the process harder than it needed to be. I have rented online before; it was usually seamless.

We have been renting this unit for at least last couple years or so, typically in spring/summer and winter. We have enjoyed the unit, which is still reasonably OK but it clearly shows signs of neglect. Cleanliness of carpets is far from desired. Kitchen is equipped but barely for family cooking, we typically bring our own cooking utensils etc. Bunch of minor but noticeable things like heating vent cover by the entrance, which has not been fixed perhaps at least a year etc. Balcony looks like it has been cleaned long time ago. Overall, still perhaps okay but clearly could use some TLC besides just the-end-of-stay cleaning.
