About Mark Hansen

Hello, I am Mark. I was born in So. Cal and moved to Nevada in 1968. I went to high school at Lake Tahoe and moved to Carson City in 1979. I worked for the Nevada Dept. of Corrections for 36 years. I was also a reserve deputy sheriff for 8 years. Recently retired, we just had lots of fun completing the house makeover and now want to share this beauty with you.

Mark Hansen purchased this house in 2001

Why Mark Hansen chose Carson City

I really like the comfort and friendliness of this newer neighborhood here in Carson City, a place I have called home for 39 years. I bought the house in 2001 because I really liked the separate casual and formal areas, divided by a cool fireplace. I liked the location off the beaten path so to speak and away from constant traffic. This is not you average home with average furnishings. This has also been a very quite neighborhood and free from constant traffic noise. You cannot go wrong with this home away from home.

What makes this house unique

French doors open from the Master bedroom, out to the patio. Ceiling fans in all rooms keep the air moving. You enjoy the breezes while relaxing in my eclectic and comfortable home. The central location allows you to easily travel to the many fun and diverse places nearby. The decor in the house is very unique to other rentals and contains visual references and reading material to the past and has unique bedroom themes. The granite counter tops and wood accents give the kitchen/family room areas a unique flavor along with the memorabilia of the past on display. Family room area is comfortable and equipped with big screen TV and DirectTV access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best home renting experience we've ever got. We really love this stylish but cozy house, and almost all of my friends want to make it a model-home for their future houses. This house is like a art gallery as each room has its own theme. From the every detail of decoration, we can tell that the owners have pretty high artistic taste and love traveling and life. More importantly, the host, Angela is super nice and helpful! When we locked the bathroom by mistake, she even sent us the key to help open it around 11:30pm, which really warmed our hearts. We highly appreciated that. In a word, this is definitely best-value place you can get when you plan a Tahoe trip, and we're also looking forward to be hosted by Mark again.

Beautiful home!

Stayed here with family earlier in September. It was in a nice, safe and convenient, neighborhood. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything I needed. Enjoyed all the homes collections tastefully displayed around the living areas. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks!

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely home, along with two friends. The house was clean and very comfortable, and the host, Mark, was very accommodating. We were welcomed to the home with a nice package of muffins and fresh flowers. We would definitely stay again. We were attending Hot August Nights in Reno, which was about a 20 minute drive. Carson City was a very good central location. We also visited Virginia City and the small hamlet of Genoa, which were also an easy drive. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much to the Hansens!

Chef's dream, cute house, lots of character

  • 5 of 5

I chose this house because when I am home I love to cook for people I love. This was a perfect house for that. Lots of spices and seasonings, and things to cook with. I left a crock pot as a gift to the owners. They were both extremely hospitable, generous, and kind. I cooked 3 huge dinners and loved that they had everything you could want. My friends and family commented on how awesome the house is. I agree!! Great location. The back yard was perfect for us to enjoy our dinners. Thank you so much Mark and Jaimie for welcoming us into your home.
