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 Truckee

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 condo

  • 4 of 5

I have three children under 9 on Northstar Ski Teams. Needless to say we have stayed at lots of Condos in the Northstar Property over the years. This condo is clean, spacious, and equipped with everything you need. Close to Northstar shuttle. Owner very responsive. We will return.

Condo Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. The view out the windows was beautiful, and we were blessed to wake up to fresh snow! We found this condo to be very comfortable and spacious for a condo. It has a well stocked kitchen with everything you need to prepare a meal. It is so convenient to getting to the village, and we found the shuttle service to be very efficient with a friendly staff. Nancy the owner was extremely response to our needs, one of the friendliest owners we have even rented from with VRBO. We will return sometime in the future!

3rd Time Renter!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in this great Truckee cabin! The condo is really clean, warm, well stocked, and spacious enough for our family of 5. The shuttle stop is nearby with access to the rec center, great village restaurants, and of course, Northtar’s fabulous slopes. Nancy is a pleasure to rent from – we will certainly return each year for our family ski week! Thank you Nancy!

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!
