Overview

Photos and Description of this Incline Village holiday condo

3BR, 2 and 1/2 bath, sleeps 7

This large end-unit condo is beautifully furnished, recently renovated, and gets lots of sunshine. Conveniently located very close to Lake Tahoe, it's nestled in the trees near the protected and undeveloped part of the lake. The condo is also close to skiing (both Alpine and cross-country, 3 minutes to Diamond Peak), the Hyatt Hotel/Casino, a large tennis facility, two golf courses, mountain biking, hiking and all lake activities (boating, fishing, swimming). There is also a large indoor recreation facility close by with an Olympic-size swimming pool, basketball court, and a fully-equipped gym.

This is the owner's second home and mountain retreat. It includes a spacious combined living/dining room with cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and wet bar. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, a desk/workstation, wireless throughout the home, and all the amenities you'll need to make your vacation comfortable. There's also a large 333 square foot wrap-around deck with a propane barbecue grill for outdoor cooking and comfortable deck furniture. It has a great stereo system with a good selection of CDs and bluetooth compatible. Rent directly from owner.

Golf courses: There are two excellent golf courses in Incline, and discounts are possible with passes.

Tennis Courts: There is a tennis complex in Incline with 10 courts. Daily and weekly memberships are available. Also, the tennis facility can find partners at your level for you.

Ski Areas: We are 3 minutes away from Diamond Peak Ski Area (there is also a bus to get there), 10 minutes to Mount Rose, and 15 minutes to Northstar. Also, buses run from the Hyatt to other major ski areas (Alpine, Squaw Valley, etc.). Heavenly Valley is 30 minute drive south.

About John or Astrid

My wife Astrid and I live in Sausalito, California, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. We both grew up on the East coast: New York for me, Connecticut for Astrid. I graduated from Colgate University and Dartmouth College, where I got my MBA. She graduated from Vassar.

This is our second home. We love it in both the winter and summer.

John or Astrid purchased this condo in 1985

Why John or Astrid chose Lake Tahoe Area

One of the nicest, largest 3 bedroom condos in the Mountain Shadows complex. Also one that gets plenty of sunlight. It is just as comfortable if you are a party of 2 or up to 7.

What makes this condo unique

Although the condo is in a complex, you feel completely separate once you are inside, with a spacious living room/dining room upstairs, with cathedral ceiling. Also, grocery shopping is quite close by, as are good restaurants. Our kitchen is fully equipped, as Astrid loves to cook.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this place, have returned for many years, and think of it as "our home" in Tahoe.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Enough beds for everyone. Great family room and deck. Cooked full dinners, the oven and stove were great. Every beach we visited was beautiful. The zephyr cove stables provided a scenic horse ride for all of us-thanks John for the recommendation. Even the pool was fun and relaxing. We would come back again!

We had a wonderful summer time experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Lake Tahoe and we were very happy with the opportunity to relax at John and Astrid's condo! We enjoyed the location for access to the local beaches, restaurants and grocery store. The beds were comfortable, the great room was spacious, Wi-Fi service was excellent, and the kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils, pots and pans, etc. We enjoyed access to local recreational opportunities with the recreation punch card too. If you're driving to the location in the summer, I would recommend brining your own cooler and towels for trips to the beaches. We would return!

Nice condo that met our needs

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time in the condo. It was a good size for a few couples. The kitchen, while a little tight on space, was well-equipped. Nice BBQ and patio area, which was a big plus. Fairly well-appointed overall.

Aside from a few minor hiccups not worth of any detail, it was a nice stay and we would stay here again.

Warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very warm, comfy and spacious condo. We love how open the living /dining room area is with nice big windows that lets in lots of lightThe condo is one the corner so the outside deck wraps around.There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out while reading, playing games, watching TV,etc, Lots of seating.. large wrap around sectional,swivel chairs.The kitchen is small but well equipped. We really liked that there was a small bathroom upstairs. The bedrooms are very nice too.The condo stays quite warm, so no worries there!We were 2 families.. 4 adults and 2 young children. It is close to Diamond Peak, where we like to ski with our kids this time of the year. This is our second season renting and we love this place!We have stayed at many condo's over the years for our annual family ski week and this one has become our favorite.

A True Home Away

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent condo in a perfect location -- it had all of the conveniences you would expect and more. We love to ski Diamond Peak, and it was not 5 minutes away! The Condo is spacious, comfy and perfect for families. I've stayed in Incline Village many times and would definitely stay at this condo again. The owners are gracious and helpful and I'm very impressed with Home Away overall. I will be a repeat customer!
