Interaction with Guests
We live 200 miles from the condo so we only communicate by email. The key for entering is in a lockbox. We have local property managers who are available if something comes up. They live 5 minutes from condo.
The neighborhood is condos and private homes. We are a 5-minute walk from Lake Tahoe with all its grandeur and beauty. We have a public beach and coffee shop at the end of our street on the lake as well as the wooden boats marina next door.
While most people will want to have a car to get to the many interesting places around the lake (and they can be rented at the airport in Reno), there is also a public transit from the airport that will deliver guests to very near the condo. There is a public bus that travels from the ski resorts around the north shore.
Other Things to Note
The condo is well located and well stocked. We have condiments and breakfast food (pancakes, syrup, oatmeal and coffee) available if you get in late the night before.
This condo is one of 125 units on 90 forested acres. We are the end unit in a 6-condo building, with one common wall. A parking permit for each car, secured at the condo office, is needed. A key card (also at the office) is needed for clubhouse, pool, and hot tubs. You can rent the large deck and have a barbecue using the club house facilities. The tennis courts have a combination lock.
We live with CCR 's and there are rules for the community. The most important include: hours and days of operation of the pool and hot tubs, quiet hours after 11:00, being respectful of other homeowners and their property.
No smoking and no pets.
Club house at Carnelian Woods. Game rooms, showers, sauna, bocce court , hot tubs( open all year)and pool( open 6/1 to 9/1)
We had such a lovely time at this property. It's as described and better. The kitchen is very well stocked with all a cook could want, and the location is perfect for quick access to the beach, mini-golf or the club house, which has a pool hot tub and game room. We were a family of four and there was more than enough room. It could comfortably sleep 9-10 people. All was clean upon arrival and check-out was painless. I look forward to coming back. Thank you Ann.
We had a wonderful weekend trip at Lake Tahoe. Ann's condo was very clean and comfortable. A short walk down to the carnelian bay. We enjoyed a paddle boat ride in the morning, and stroll around the neighborhood down to the lake after the rain. We had fun playing pool at the club house during the afternoon Rain. The kitchen was well stocked, and the Safeway was a short drive to King's beach. A great place to stay for north Tahoe visit.
Ann is an awesome host! The property was everything I thought it would be, and the location was great! 5 stars!
We had a great stay. Nice condo in a great location. Ann was very responsive and helpful and the prepared info sheets were organized and detailed.
There was a little bit of a snafu with the access code and entering the cabin, but info sheet provided 3 contact numbers so it was quickly resolved and Ann was great about following up as well. I understand that little things like that can happen anytime, but the response and support was great. We would definitely come back again. I would definitely stay here again.
Great place and exactly as described! Ann left us detailed instructions and was very responsive. Everything at the house felt cozy and comfortable. Would definitely rent this place again. Perfect for a weekend Tahoe trip.
We had an amazing stay at Ann's condo. The place was very neat and everything arranged in order. Carnelian Bay is excellent place, very close to the lake and all amenities very close by. The instructions left in the Condo were precise and easy to understand. We wished we stayed for few more days but we had to get back to work so had to leave :(
Overall an excellent place, awesome day. Only thing that I would like to point is it took a while for me to figure out the Condo. Please do not use GPS once you enter Carnelian Bay. GPS will take you to the next block. I wish the driving directions could have been more precise with land marks, etc.
About the Host, Diane
We are two couples and have owned this condo together for 7 years. One couple lives in Pleasant Hill and the other in Escondido, both California.
We have been going to Tahoe for many years and continue to enjoy the lake and the mountains. This is our second home and we and our families use it all year round. We have had very good experiences with renters and are pleased to share our home away from home. We have recently remodeled the bathrooms and kitchen, so all is nice and new and very comfortable.
North Lake Tahoe is a collection of small towns on the North Shore. The road surrounds the Lake, and access and traffic are good. We have casinos 15 minutes to the East (Incline, NV) and ski resorts (Squaw Valley, Alpine, Northstar) in both directions. Hiking is superb and plentiful. There are fine restaurants and casual eateries. It's a great family vacation or adult playground.
