Our beautiful, three-bedroom, two-bath condominium is located in Northstar-at-Tahoe, a year round destination resort located between North Lake Tahoe and the historic town of Truckee. Northstar has the largest snow-making system on Lake Tahoe’s north shore and offers skiing and snowboarding experiences for all levels. When the snow disappears, other activities to enjoy include golf, tennis, and hiking and biking trails.

Our condominium includes all of the amenities needed to make your stay a memorable one. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and even includes a bagel slicer! Linens, paper products, soaps, and firewood are available for you to use. Boot/glove warmers/dryers will get your boots and gloves ready for another day on the slopes. Looking out from the living room and dining room, you will enjoy incredible mountain views!

Once you have arrived, you will enjoy our welcome basket of treats, Home Theatre system, flat screen TV’s in the living room and master bedroom, Netflix streaming movies, Apple universal dock for playing your music, and high speed wireless computer access. Concierge services are available for pre-arrival grocery shopping and chef prepared meals.

We provide saucers and sleds and there is a snow play area in front of our condo. You can watch all of the activity from our kitchen window!

Our guests are able to use all of the Northstar Property Owners’ Recreation Center facilities including the pools, saunas, spas, fitness and exercise room, massage therapy center, adult center, teen/youth center, and tennis courts. (Note that there is a $2/day charge/person for this use.) The lap pool is heated for your winter enjoyment.

The Northstar shuttle service makes it convenient for you to reach the Village, ski lifts, and other destinations in the resort. This service makes it easy for you to be out at different times during the day and no one has to worry about driving.

The Village at Northstar has changed dramatically during the past several years. You will find a variety of shopping options, including clothing stores, galleries, several food and beverage choices (from take-out to fine dining), a specialty chocolatier, photography and video services, movie theatres, craft activities, spa/massage/yoga services, and more! Even Starbucks is now in the Village. There is a pedestrian friendly plaza, fire pits, and a 9000-square-foot ice skating/roller skating rink! It is a perfect place to gather during the day or after skiing. Minors’ Camp is available for non-skiing 3 – 6 year olds.

For a special meal, ride the gondola to the Ritz-Carlton. If you prefer to dine in, or have a special event planned, contact our partner Hey Chef!

With all of the activities available on-site at Northstar, many guests never leave the resort during their stay! If you decide to see some of the local sites, the historic town of Truckee is only six miles to the north and Lake Tahoe is six miles to the south. Truckee has many interesting shops and tourist attractions as well as all of the stores (grocery, drug, hardware, and sporting goods) that you might need. Lake Tahoe offers wonderful scenery, water activities, and a wide variety of restaurants. Nevada, with its casinos, is also located on the north shore.

We accommodate up to eight guests and have a no-smoking and no pet policy.

A refundable security/damage deposit of $500 secures your reservation, with the full amount due sixty days prior to your arrival.

We accept checks, PayPal, major credit cards, and the VRBO payment system.

About Nancy Villarreal

Our family has enjoyed coming to our condo in Indian Hills at Northstar for many years. The resort has all of the activities that one would want for a vacation. Genealogy and quilting are two of my favorite activities. This summer my grandchildren are going to teach me to horseback ride!

Nancy Villarreal purchased this townhome in 1979

Why Nancy Villarreal chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We think our location in the Indian Hills area of Northstar is perfect! It is a short walk/ride to the Village, where you can enjoy all that Northstar offers. Then return to our quiet and relaxing townhouse. You will find this residence fully stocked with the general items you will need. You will even find a lettuce knife and bagel slicer in the kitchen! And boot/glove warmers in the entry hall. My goal is that you will be as comfortable in my place as you are in your own home!

What makes this townhome unique

All of the activities at Northstar are conveniently located. In the winter it's an easy ride on the shuttle bus to the Village! We have a small hill in front where children of all ages can enjoy our saucers and sled on the snow. Enjoy looking out at the mountains and slopes from our living room window and dining room door and balcony, while you remain warm and cozy!

Our first Northstar experience ...

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was very much a 5-Star experience. This condo was very spacious but cozy at the same time. We will try to make our next visit a little longer. We can't wait to return and imagine the winter time to be even more beautiful! Thank you Nancy for making our first Northstar experience great and for being so accommodating :) We highly recommend this vacation retreat. Tom and Sandy

Great apartment and stay in Northstar

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, which easily accommodates for 6+ pple thanks to all the available beds (4 singles, 1 queen) and nice common area, all very clean and well furnished.

Perfect for a weekend near Tahoe in Summer and must be pretty great in winter as it is very close to the main sky resort.

The overall environment is calm and is great to for a family stay or with a weekend between friends!

Special thanks to Nancy who was super helpful and flexible.

Perfect location and accommodations for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

When I started to look at VRBOs in the Tahoe area, I realized that it was challenging to find rentals with multiple beds. This three bedroom rental had twins in two of the rooms which perfectly facilitated our two daughters and our two granddaughters who were going to be staying with us. The architectural design of the condominium was such that we had views of trees and mountains from every window. We also appreciated that the sleeping accommodations were on the lower two levels and that our shared living space was on the top floor. I am a regular VRBO renter who values cleanliness and a comprehensive kitchen. (I actually enjoy cooking, even on vacations!). This rental certainly met my expectations in this regard. While we were not familiar with Northstar, we soon discovered that the location provided us with easy access to Tahoe's many beaches (e.g. King's Beach, Sand Harbor, Emerald Bay and Donner Lake). Our grandchild delighted in the Recreation Center and spent many hours swimming in the pools, participating in the arts and crafts activities and even playing ping pong/air hockey during an afternoon thunderstorm. The proximity to Truckee (6 miles) made it easy to scoot over to Safeway for groceries. We were regular users of the BMX park in Truckee and noted that a Raley's is scheduled to open which will be even more convenient. The shuttle service to the Village would be a great asset during the winter months! Thanks so very much to our hostess for sharing her lovely vacation home with us!

Great place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful month in this condo! We have 3 young boys and the condo is well suited for our extended stay. Even with additional guests, we were all comfortable. The access to trails, Northstar amenities (pool, tennis courts, basketball court, mountain bike trails, restaurants) and Tahoe are fantastic. The owner is very attentive and accommodating. We would stay again.

Wonderful unit fully supplied.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was wonderful for a large group. The kitchen had all pots, pans, and equipment you could want on vacation. The only suggestion would be to have an additional queen/king bed in one of the rooms downstairs instead of the two twins in both bedrooms. It worked out ok and we had a great time. Thank you!

Wonderful homey relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Great family getaway location. The Condo is fully equipped with everything from ample towels and kitchenware to firewood. The thoughtful instructions around the house made it really easy to stay in an unfamiliar place. The Villareals have created a very welcoming homey place that they clearly enjoy sharing. Nancy went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. Felt like we were staying at a friend's home.
