Featuring forest views from the living room, this wonderful vacation rental is beautiful any time of the year. Bright and cheerful with room to sleep eight, Rock Beach is the place for you!

The entry level includes two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king bed, TV, and a glass sliding door to the covered deck. The second bedroom has a cozy queen-size bed. There is also a full bath with a tub/shower. The laundry closet is just across the hall.

On the second level, the living room, dining area, and kitchen are all together, so everyone can gather in one place. You’ll also find the second full bathroom. Plenty of bath linens are provided.

Relax and warm up by the wood burning fireplace in the living room. There's a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD player, plus a comfortable leather sofa, chair, and ottoman. Wi-Fi keeps everyone connected and the adjacent covered deck gas BBQ.

With all those mouths to feed, it’s handy to stay in for some of your meals. The well-equipped, open concept kitchen includes everything you need, especially the all-important dishwasher. There are six chairs at the large dining table and three stools at the breakfast bar.

On the loft, you’ll find one queen bed and one set of bunk beds—a perfect space for the kids or a small family to call their own.

When you’re ready to venture outside, keep everyone entertained in this perfect vacation setting. The Recreation Center / Lodge features a swimming pool, two outdoor hot tubs, locker room saunas, a game room with billiards, a video game arcade, tennis and bocce courts, and a fitness trail. The complex backs up to Tahoe National Forest, offering miles of hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and other activities year-round.

Your home away from home is in Carnelian Bay, where all North Lake Tahoe is right at your doorstep! Stroll down to Magic Carpet mini golf or check out Waterman’s Landing, located at Patton Landing Beach, a 3-acre, pebbly beach known for stand-up paddling.

To experience Lake Tahoe gambling and nightlife, Incline Village and Nevada's historic casino Crystal Bay are a short drive away, just across the state line.

Closer to home, you'll find superb dining options right in town like Gar Woods Grill and Pier for steaks and fish, the Old Post Office Coffee Shop for hearty breakfasts, and CB's Pizza for hand-tossed pies and beer.

You're only 10-12 miles from three great ski resorts—Northstar, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley. Whether you prefer to downhill or cross-country ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or go sledding or ice skating, North Tahoe is the place for every winter activity.

At Squaw Valley, after conquering the slopes, go tubing with the kids or try out the mini snowmobiles at SnoVentures Activity Zone. There are dogsledding tours too!

Year-round, the Village at Squaw Valley offers dining, shopping, the Squaw Valley Aerial Tram, and a variety of activities.

In the summer, ride the Aerial Tram to High Camp then choose a scenic trail and walk or hike in one of the most breathtaking places in the world! At 8,200 feet elevation, admire the beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with views of Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley's legendary granite peaks. In the Aerial Tram building lobby, kids and grownups can have a blast climbing the variety of routes on the 30’ simulated Headwall Climbing Wall. If you dare, learn how to do a front or back somersault at Skyjump; all ages are welcome.

NOTE: Carnelian Woods hot tubs open daily in summer and winter, Saturdays only in spring and fall. Pool open summer only. Start and end dates will vary based on weather.

"Clean, Quite And Close To The Action
We enjoyed our stay! The property is located close to the lake in a quite townhome community. It’s within walking or short drive to restaurants, the lake and ski resorts. The accommodations are a bit more basic, but clean and comfortable. Would suggest replacing the broken sliding glass door shades. Only warning is beware of the $500 security deposit. It was almost as much as our two night stay and it took 10 days to have it refunded. It seems that once the cleaning crew cleans after our stay and a new renter goes in (possibly same day), the rental company should initiate the return. Not sure why it had to take so long. "

Our stay was comfortable. The place was clean and met all
Our accommodations. "

"More than expected
Had a great time, loved the hiking trails behind the condo, and loved the short walking distance to the beach and mini golf"

"Summer get away
Great condo, splits into three levels. A little hard for older people to get up and down the stairs. Great place and a great price. "
Aug 14, 2020 - Clifford S., N/A, CO

"Great condo, wonderful location!
Everything about this home was great! Spacious, really clean, all the necessary items you'll need for your stay here. So close to Rock Beach, a nice walk to watch the sunsets."
Aug 05, 2020 - Traci G., Folsom, CA

"Great location, so-so unit
The good: near the lake and a few other amenities, pool was open on our last day (check due to COVID situation), spacious, comfortable beds, decent kitchen.
The bad: very little light, always kind of dreary. Fully light at 5am, hard to get good sleep."

"Cozy and excellent stay
Everything was wonderful very cozy and clean home the area is great alot of things to do around "

"Comfortable condo
We came for a ski vacation. The kitchen was a little dated, fridge had issues with temp. Froze first night, thawed the next. Was excited to use the fireplace after a long day of skiing, to find out they don’t supply any firewood, we would need to drive to town to buy some☹️. The beds were comfy and lots of hot water. "

"Way better then anticipated!
We arrived in the evening and didn't have any trouble finding the condo. It's in a great neighborhood and we found everything we needed.We were a party of 5 so the bedrooms being spread out was very convenient. We used the bbq and the deck.the house was exactly like the pictures. The neighbors were very nice and even the bears came out!"
Dec 10, 2019 - Randy L., winnipeg, MB

"A pleasant Stay
We have used these accommodations for two years in a row when we spend the weekend in Tahoe to go ride bicycles around the lake - They are very comfortable and the only thing I would say is they could perhaps use a few more kitchen utensils. But I would definitely recommend this place."
Oct 08, 2019 - , Pleasant Hill, CA

"Great Location
The location was perfect! Garwoods was 2 minutes from the condo for dinner or appetizers. Breakfast at The Old Post Office Cafe was delicious and easily a short walk. The beach, again walking distance was beautiful and picnic tables for snacks. The condo was nice and comfy. The only draw back was a group of young girls who stayed up partying ALL night long across the way."

"Return to Tahoe
the condo was great except for some issues with the refridgerator, and loved going down to Pebble beach"

"Great Location Rental
Nice size. Great location to beach, game room, pool and tennis courts."

"Great value
Sleeps 8 guests - clean and comfortable."

"We spent a pleasant 4 days vacation at the Carnelian Woods
The linens, although clean should be replaced - a little bit worn out. "

"Great Location, everything else mediocre
Check in experience was uncomfortable, missed housekeeping items (hair in bathroom, stain on master bed). Great location, clean pool. Was left feeling underwhelmed."

"Enjoyed Our Stay
Overall, we were very pleased our accommodations. The unit was clean and very well located. Some updating needs to be done. Refrigerator and washer/dryer are not in good shape. The kitchen could us a facelift. "

"Tahoe vacation
It was really nice clean and convenient would stay again"
Jul 05, 2018 - Allan W., Spring creek, NV

"Great multi-level home in a quiet neighborhood
First impression was very strong. House has 2 bedrooms and a full bath downstairs with tons of closet storage. Second floor is the great room with a huge dining room table and great kitchen. Upstairs is a loft with a queen bed and a bunk bed. We slept 3 adults and 1 child very comfortably. Great location in Carnelian Bay, walking distance to great restaurants and trails, andample parking make this spot a great go-to for the future. "
Apr 03, 2018 - Aaron H., Pacific Grove, CA

"A decent stay, close to the lake and only 20 mins from Alpine
This was a duplex + loft and a good amount of space for 5 to 7 people. The place was nice, well done up and bathrooms were clean. The check-in process was easy and it was really close to the lake and to a few ski resorts which was great. The hot tubs looked great and well maintained but they are an inconvenient distance away from most the houses, so nobody seemed to use them. The kitchen had some of the basics but was not well stocked, no coffee tea or anything. Overall a pleasant stay, but there were a few cons that need to be addressed by the management:
- Both the bathrooms had locks, but they didn't work.
- For checking out, the instructions in the house mentioned to leave the house keys and parking passes at the recreation center, however I was later told that the house keys needed to be left in the lock box at the house itself.
- The recreation center had a few games, but only a few worked, the pool table was out of order and the guy at the desk told us not to play air hockey because it was too loud. What?
- When we were leaving to check out, we opened the front door only to find someone had packed a 6 foot pile of snow at the front door. It took us a while to kick through it and were freezing having to deal with it! Not sure if this was just a prank by some neighbours or if the owners were disliked by someone around but this was a little unsettling to deal with at the end of a vacation. I have mentioned this to the management and hope for a response to this soon."

"Not worth the price!
This 3 story condo was not at all kid/toddler friendly or handicap accessible. The layout, which is not mentioned in the description, is 2 bedrooms on the entry level, kitchen and living on the second floor and an open loft on the third floor. The railings in the loft were far enough apart that my daughter could fit her body through. The child gate provided does not secure in any way and there is only one for two sets of stairs. The back right burner of the stove didn’t work. The handle on the coffee pot fell off while pouring hot coffee and spilled the entire hot pot. TV didn’t work with reception. Internet was in and out. Bathroom doors didn’t lock. Not enough comfortable seating for 8 guests. We had to take turns sitting on the couch or kitchen chairs/floor. Everything was very old and used. Noise traveled throughout the entire house. Minimal kitchen. Showers inexplicably turned ice cold mid shower. It’s a good enough place to sleep and that’s about it. Would not recommend this condo in the winter if you want to cozy up inside. Over priced and underwhelmed!"
Jan 15, 2018 - , Capitola, CA

"Lake Tahoe North Shore
Love Tahoe vacations and getaways, decent condo layout for family/friends but lousy kitchen and rec center staff. If you don't mind a lame kitchen (plan to eat out) and just sleep and hand here, don't need the spa, then it's fine. For the price, the kitchen should be upgraded and the facilities should be open as advertised. "
Jan 06, 2018 - , Pacific Grove, CA

"my response
It is not easy to find this location, nobody helped us."
Dec 20, 2017 - Vera S., North Highlands, CA

Kitchen and bathrooms were horrible- They need major work. They are original to the house. Clean, but need a lot of work. The bathrooms are especially bad...really small, disgusting with mold that can't be cleaned any more. NEVER hot water!!! Or at least only one time in 6 days! It was bad.

The master bedroom is awful in regards to the mattress and floor. The floor is scary in regards that is slants to the right SO much and feeling like you will fall through the floor. It needs to be updated/replaced very bad. And the mattress is way too soft and also slopes to the right towards the door.

The carpet is dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Loft- Bunk beds are nice but top bunk has no side rail. How can anyone possible sleep on top and chance falling off. And the one bunk bed sits right on the side of the over hang and you can fall off to the second floor.

No barbecue! Pieces missing for barbecue to work.

microwave clean and newer
Good lay out with plenty of room
Great TV package with tons of movies- thank you to quick response from lake accommodations to quickly fix the downstairs tv when not working.
Good location
Great pool area

We would NEVER rent this place again. And we would NEVER recommend this place. Has potential to be great if those things were improved. Thanks"

"Tahoe experience
Stay in the same townhouse complex every year. Love north Tahoe"
Aug 01, 2017 - Steven F., Huntington beach, CA

"Carnelian Bay Condo
The condo is located in a great location, and was in overall pretty good shape. Several problems however, the refrigerator didn't work for three days and a shower wouldn't turn warm for the first day. The shower was repaired immediately, but the fridge took a while. The management company was professional and prompt, which made the problems manageable."
Jul 24, 2017 - , Milwaukee, WI

"comfortable and convenient
The condo has a lot of great things about it, the space and layout are nice and spacious for our family of four. The living room and dining room furniture were nice and comfy.

The only issue is that the kitchen and bath rooms are probably original to the condo, 40+ years old? The bathrooms are ok (counters and toilets are very low) it is the kitchen that really needs to be updated. It seemed ok for making breakfast and snacks but not great for making a meal. the counters and cabinets were in bad shape.

Other than that we enjoyed it!"
Mar 31, 2017 - patrick p., Emeryville, CA

"bunk beds not usable
Beware if you are coming with children. The bunk beds have no railings and are really shaky. We did not feel we could safely use the top bunks. We carried the mattress down from one and put it on the floor. And we stuck the fourth child in bed with the parents. Also, the bunks are lofted so they are wide open to the communal area. If adults plan to stay up after putting kids down, forget about it. Too much noise. The kitchen is minimally equipped and the whole place is just ok."
Sep 07, 2016 - , Alameda, CA

"Great location
We loved the location which is a short walk to the lake. Kings Beach, Tahoe City & a great park were a short drive away. Just a heads up that the unit doesn't have A/C. We didn't realize that when we booked but even staying in August we did not need it as the condo stayed cool. The condo is nice but it seemed a little dark. We thought the bunk beds in the loft would be great for our kids but once we saw them we chose not to. The top bunks do not have any side rails and the one bunk bed is literally next to the loft railing. If you have a restless sleeper this could easily become a horrific scene. Towels provided were pretty cheap & thin but served their purpose. Would recommend if you are looking for a convenient and generally comfy place. Just don't expect high end amenities."
Aug 22, 2016 - Jessica K., Wadsworth, OH

"Rock Beach 23
Quiet, comfortable, beautiful views and easy access to restaurants and beaches."

"Great place to stay for boarding
Overall it was great. It was very comfy and exactly what you need to your snowboarding adventure. "
Feb 21, 2016 - Andrew B., Los Angeles, CA

"No better place
This was a great place to stay. The location was within easy driving distance to several ski places. We arrived in the evening and I was carrying things in from the parking lot. A young man named Chris, an employee of the complex, came through to plow the lot. I asked him where the office was located since I had to pick up a parking permit and the access keys to the rec room. Rather than just give directions, he went to the office himself and came back with what I needed while I finished unloading. I will defiantly stay here again. The place was comfortable and had everything we needed. "
Jan 05, 2016 - David S., Los Altos, CA

"good times at rock beach
very nice place. easy access to and from. bbq on patio was fun. the shower head is low (like 5') was my only complaint. "
Sep 11, 2015 - , napa, ca

"Good property needs more TV channels and firewood
Condo was very nice up to date and clean.
The only downside was that the TV cable package was very lacking, most of the common popular stations were not subscribed.
There were only 2 small pieces of firewood in the fireplace and none extra.
We had friends who rented a different unit the same weekend. they had a full cable TV package, and a storage closet full of firewood in their entry way.
Other than those two things we were very pleased with the unit."
May 27, 2015 - Cindy A., Yuba City, CA

"Not Good Value for the Money
This unit has pros and cons.

The pros - The TV was awesome, but I wish they had put it above the fireplace since it blocks the view to the outside. The couches were very comfy and the master bedroom was great with a comfortable mattress. Our daughters really liked the loft area. The bunk beds were fun.

The cons - The unit is in serious need of some upgrades. The carpet is very old and needs to be replaced or at minimum could us a good cleaning. The kitchen is VERY old, quirky and has the bare minimum. We managed, but would not want to do any kind of serious cooking there. The counter space is very limited due to the built in butcher block cutting board. We rewashed many of the pots before using them. There was a very strong unpleasant odor in the unit. We immediately bought a scented candle to try to mask the smell. The bathrooms were very dated with very low shower heads. I am 5'6" and the water came at my chest. It was really challenging for my 6'5" husband. The bath towels were very cheep and rough. We had issues with the hot water that required attention and the blinds (both upstairs and downstairs) were not working properly.

The management was very good at responding to our requests and easy to work with, but overall, this unit was disappointing. We did a lot of research to find a good place since we were staying for 6 days. For the price we paid, we thought it would be much nicer. We have stayed in many condos in Tahoe, some much less expensive and in better condition."
Mar 10, 2015 - , San Jose, CA

"Just ok
This property could use a face lift and offer some additional kitchen supplies. The property has 3 levels - lower with 2 bedrooms in good condition and a bathroom that has vent covers and towel rack falling off; second level has a living room with only working TV, dining area, bathroom, and super basic kitchen; the third level has a set of hand made and unsafe bunk beds. One bunk bed is so close to the top rail that it is completely unsafe for children to sleep on. We had no hot water to shower, but a plumber came immediately to help fix, yet not giving us complete warm water for all to shower (some went to the clubhouse to shower). Overall the property served its purpose, location was fine, and clubhouse was a nice amenity. "

"Very good property for the price I paid
6 people quite spacious"
Jan 19, 2015 - , San Diego, California

While the living room furniture was new, the kitchen was nondescript , ill -supplied , with absolutely nothing except salt and pepper available. The master bath has a very loud fan , poor lighting and broken towel bar. All the toilets need to be updated to comfort height . We had to buy a grill brush and night light for the bathroom and there were no spare light bulbs available. Poor lighting overall, with low wattage bulbs .Very unappealing."
Nov 04, 2014 - , Huntsburg, OH

"Weekend at Tahoe
Overall the unit was great. All basic needs are available, from the kitchen to the indicated linen and bathroom basic. Very good location. Restaurants near by n rental for water activity. The lodge was also great especially when we were there,it was raining. "
Oct 01, 2014 - Paul C., Roseburg, OR

"Summer vacation
Excellent location, management promptly answered all the issues we had, the pool is clean. We were 4 adults and five children, everything was good for our group. The description on site is accurate."

"Great location!
Great spot that slept at least eight, close to the lake, and quite neighborhood. A little dark and would be great to see more lights, but all in all a great Tahoe cabin!"
Jul 12, 2014 - Tom S., San Francisco, CA

"A Nice cabin
Clean, good decoration"
May 20, 2014 - , Santa Clara, CA

The place was clean and quaint. The only issue for me was the late check in time and the early check out time made the stay shorter than I would have preferred."

Aug 05, 2011 - Al Z., Pleasant Hill, CA

Did you have a good overall stay? Yes
Was the vacation rental in a great location? Yes.
Was the home clean and in good shape? The condo was clean and generally in good condition, but the bed sheets were awful! One set in particular were a polyester gauzey material. I've never seen anything like it before and hope not to ever again! The kitchen equipment was also somewhat lacking - for example, the can opener was not capable of opening a can...
Was the vacation rental management staff helpful? My only contact with the rental management was via e-mail prior to my arrival. The information provided was complete and there were no problems with arrival or departure. The keyless entry was convenient since we arrive late on the first night."

Bed sheet is a letter old, but everything is good."
Feb 02, 2011 - , Pacheco, CA

The condo was pretty clean in general. Didn't like the bedsheets and covers, they were outdated and old. The bathroom was a little outdated as well. But over all it was an good stay. "
Feb 01, 2011 - , san jose, ca

"Comfortable, basic accommodations for 2 families of four.
Great layout for 2 families of 4. The kitchen was missing some basics- i.e., the number of forks and spoons were sparse for 8 people- I don't think there were even 8 forks. Also, no spatula? It's hard to make pancakes without one, I'll tell ya! Also, only one garbage bag was provided, when we would have liked to change out the garbage mid-stay. Bed linens were a little cheap and rough. Other than that, it accommodated all 8 of us very well and had what we needed. Thanks!"

"Close to Perfect
The bathrubs had some hair in them, so they could have been cleaner. Otherwise, very clean. Only suggestion is to have better shower heads/water pressure. Downstairs shower had very little pressure. Maybe upgrade to handheld to make it easier to clean and ensure they get the showers clean."
Dec 06, 2009 - Charity S., Florence, ky

"The people at First Accommodations have always been very helpful to us. This year this was especially true.
Aug 24, 2009 - Gary T., Chico, CA

"The unit was very nice and clean. Overall, a fun property.
Slight draw backs...they could use more silverware, utensils, and pans. Also, there was a strange smell all week in the downstairs bathroom, and the neighbors had complained about seeing mice. We didn't see any evidence, but heard one getting into things one night. "

"Lake Tahoe - 2008
Would like to have more items in kitchen, blender, more serving bowls, pitchers. Surprised there was no option for recycling, would love to see that as an option."
Nov 03, 2008 - Catherine A., Grapevine, TX

A little tight for eight people. Bring you own pan to cook with there is only 1 6" frying pan and zero spatula's. Proceedures for check-out are a little cumbersom. Don't get me wrong we enjoied our stay just needed to get over a few chalenges. "
