Great property central to everything

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has it all, great view, you can hike right from your front door and Northstar village is only few minutes away by car or a free shuttle. The interior is very nice and Barbara makes sure there is plenty of everything, coffee, spices, supplies, towels etc. This place is also dog friendly which was a must for us. Barbara is an excellent host and will call you to make sure you have all the information prior to your arrival. We will definitely be coming back.

We had such an amazing and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was conveniently located by the Northstar Village with shuttle service available. Barbara was so nice and easy to work with. She allowed me to bring my Yorkie with us. The house was very warm and cozy. I will definitely stay here again when we return to Tahoe.

Homey ski condo in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this ski condo for fun at Northstar. The owners are wonderful to work with - Barbara was very responsive to any need that arose. We have stayed at Northstar for years and this was one of our best rental experiences. The condo is situated far enough from the Village to feel like the "woods" - our kids spent a whole day sledding and playing in the snow outside the condo. The shuttle was an easy ride into the Village for skiing and ice skating. Thanks, Barbara!

No need going to expensive restaurantsVery ideal for a 3-day holiday weekend at a very reasonable price. Great location too! And very accommodating owner!

Will definitely consider for our next North Shore trip. And I will recommend to my other friends too.

I took a leap of faith booking this property even if I couldn't pay via VRBO; and only via direct payment.

Barbara was very responsive to my e-mails, she would return my phone calls in the next hour or so and she was very detailed in her voicemail. A part of me trusted her immediately. (I work in the financial industry and I am aware of fraud)


See, my mom's 68th birthday landed on 3-day Labor Day Weekend and she wanted to getaway from good 'ol San Jose with the family. It was maybe 2 weeks before Labor day that she thought of this idea and I scrimmaged resources to find a place that was not crazy expensive for us. I was losing hope finding a place that accepts dogs and inexpensive at the same time; until I found Barbara's property.

I e-mailed her if she would allow my dog and she absolutely agreed.

She asked for my address and sent me her condo keys; and then I sent her the check. EASY AS THAT.

NorthStar is AMAZING. We only left Northstar once to get to Kings Beach which was only 15mins away.

Her property was close to The Village; and the Recreation Center where we used the HEATED lap pool, splash pad for my little one, kiddie pool, hot tub;.. There were several restaurants to choose from at The Village as well ranging from yogurt, to candy, to sushi and pizza and Mexican food and more...

Barbara's condo is FULLY equipped. It had the basics for cooking. Spice cabinet, coffee maker, cooking pots and pans, grill, fridge, stove, dishwasher, plates, baking sheets.. you get the gist. She had lots of towels and pillows and sheets.

Her property is very kid friendly even with stairs. She had baby gates. TWO BABY GATES. whuuut.

This trip was so memorable. My 11-month old has had his first steps; but at the Condo; he decided to do a full on WALK. Walking everywhere from living room to dining area to kitchen so we will never ever forget this place.

An unfortunate situation happened with my fur baby during our stay. He had an episode of losing breath as he had a collapsing trachea. Thankfully, this property was only 10mins away from a 24-hr vet hospital. We needed some time for his recovery and Barbara allowed us to stay until we needed to without an extra charge. She even called me the next day to find out how my baby dog Jeiko was doing.

Barbara, Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality. My family is so appreciative of your sympathy towards our Jeiko. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
