Michele is super responsive and the apartment was as described and in very good condition. It felt like a real home.
Jeff and Michele were so thoughtful and organized, and extremely responsive. The unit was very clean and well stocked and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. Great balcony for morning coffee! Easy access to Lake Tahoe and hiking trails.
We had another great trip to Northstar - Jeff and Michele's place always exceeds expectations!
As always, we had a fantastic week at Jeff and Michele's place. It's perfectly appointed, very comfortable, and in a great location. My boys and I had blast skiing Northstar over the holiday weekend - and the apres ski in the townhouse. Thanks again!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your lovely ski condo--well equipped kitchen, nice decor, comfortable beds, great fireplace, and a short shuttle ride or walk to the slopes and village. Thanks for providing clear directions and making us feel so welcome.
The five of use had a really nice 10 days over the holidays. Very comfortable and cozy living room with a nice fireplace. Incredible kitchen that we cooked great dinners in every night. The granite kitchen island was perfect for all the preparations, and there was ample tableware, along with cooking pots and pans, and more. The dining table was more than big enough for the 5 of us.
We loved the convenience of the all-day Northstar shuttle service to the village and slopes. The shuttle stop was a very short walk (3 minutes?) from the unit. The gym (also accessible by shuttle) was a huge plus, including its family hot/warm tub that we took the 3 year old to. Though we could've used more space for our belongings, we we able to make it work. It was a nice, homey environment surrounded by trees and nature. It was well stocked with the basic necessities, which you don't always encounter. Overall, it was really relaxing, enjoyable, and convenient.
Note that we did not notice any issues with heater noises that we'd read about in other reviews. Our 3 year old slept soundly and loved getting to be in the top bunk.
About the Host, Jeff And Michele
We are an active, fun-loving, food-loving, friendly family from the SF Bay Area. Jeff works in the hubbub of silicon valley and Michele is a teacher and family therapist. We enjoy the Lake Tahoe region so much, we spend a lot of time there hiking, splashing around the lakes, riding our boards on the mountains, and just relaxing. The natural beauty of the Sierra's is amazing and truly unbeatable. We own a cute condo on the Northstar California resort just a few minutes walk from the village, and we like to chill and entertain friends and family there during every season. We're happy share this haven with like-minded people from time to time, so let us know if you're interested. Thanks!
