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!

Great time and location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villareal condo. The condo is clean, well maintained and perfect for a quick weekend getaway. Nancy was very responsive and accommodating of our party size and she went our of her way to maximize our vacation stay. We found the kitchen well stocked with pots and pans. I would suggest bringing sleeping bags or sheets and blankets for the sofa couch in the living room area. They may be there, but we did not find them. We hope to use it again!

Repeat customer

  • 5 of 5

So happy to have stayed in this great ski cabin again - even better on round 2! The furniture is new and very comfortable, the Northstar shuttle picks up one minute walk from the cabin and very frequent. Worked out amazingly even with young kids, only waiting 5 mins max. Cabin is home from home. Spacious, warm and cosy in the cold nights and everything is well stocked (washing powder, cleaning products etc). Nancy is a wonderfully responsive host - responded at promptly at midnight and then at 6am! Our family loves this place and cannot wait to be back! (selfishly I don't want it to get booked up!). Thank you Nancy, your cabin is wonderful!

Perfect condo for a family getaaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this condo, the owner Nancy was great, from her response time, communication via phone/email/usps to keeping us updated on everything. We loved this condo, it was very cozy for our family as well as very clean and beds were also very comfortable. We would definately stay here again. Northstar has a free shuttle service which took us to the village (loved not having to drive anwhere) My teens also enjoyed hopping on the shuttle at any time without us parents having to worry or drive them To village .

Great condo overall!

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
