Our stay at Jamie's home in Carnelian Bay was fantastic. The apartment was comfortable and clean, and had all the amenities we needed. Jamie provided us with very helpful information and was very communicative. Location is very close to a number of key attractions and restaurants around the area, and the home itself is part of a private resort lodge. We hope to surely stay here again in the future! Highly recommend for those wishing to stay in the north lake tahoe area.
I stayed at Jamie's place with my parents and my sister. My sister and I are two adult children in their twenties. Our family had traveled from Shanghai, China, and was looking to both unwind from city-life stressors and reconnect amongst ourselves: we were looking for a space that would be cozy enough to ensure plenty of "family time", while still allowing parents and "kids" to retire to their separate spaces from time to time.
Jamie's place was a perfect match for what we were looking for. The parents had a comfortable stay in the upstairs bedroom, while the pull-out couch was perfectly comfortable for my sister and me.
Because of the loft style of the upstairs space and the fact that it is separated by a sliding panel, it is a little difficult to really "close off" into completely private spaces. Conversation held at regular levels can be heard from downstairs, and vice versa. Our family was fine with this, but it is something to be aware of.
The house was very clean and well-equipped. We enjoyed the coffeemaker and regularly made breakfast or our own hot chocolate on the stove. It was wonderful to have a washing machine and dryer in the house to take care of all our sunscreen-laden laundry. (We later moved to a second airbnb property at a different location on the lake, which did not have any laundry facilities in the house. They were sorely missed!)
The property is located in a nice residential area off the main road between Kings Beach and Tahoe City. We were able to enjoy the peace and quiet every morning and evening, while our daytime activities were just a short drive away. There was also a 7-11 just a few minutes' walk out of the neighborhood, where we picked up some emergency groceries.
Jamie was a very responsive host. I emailed her at 10 pm the night before checkout to ask if we could possibly have a late checkout (we had made some miscalculations for our kayaking trip the following morning), and despite the disgracefully short notice, she replied very promptlyE with a promise to check with her cleaning crew. She also thoughtfully sent us a coupon for the gondola in Squaw Valley, although we were not able to fit it into our schedule.
All in all, a wonderful stay and gracious host at Jamie's! Highly recommended, especially for travelers looking to enjoy some group-bonding time.
Jamie was very responsive and provided us with all the necessary information to make our stay hassle-free. Apt. was as described/pictured. Thanks!
The townhouse was as described. Great location with quick access to the water, kayak/paddleboard rentals, a coffee shop and drinks at Garwoods and easy parking/entry. Had a great time!
Nice complex, great location, I have been going to this complex over 30 years and it is kept up well. The unit is neat and well kept, nice bed and towels and kitchen utensils are good...
Had a great night's stay at Jamie's place. Jamie was clear and prompt in communicating the directions to the place, the access instructions and was available to answer all questions. The house was clean, neat and all amenities available. The sofa bed was comfortable to sleep on. Overall, had a wonderful experience. Thanks Jamie!
Jamie was extremely communicative and thoughtful- the perfect host. I can't say enough about this extraordinary location- right near lake, pool, hikes and all in the forest. The condo was comfortable and relaxing. Seriously an amazing vacation!
