This cozy condo sleeps up to four guests—the perfect place for a small family or a dreamy romantic getaway. Located in Carnelian Bay, make yourself at home in the vacation spot near everything!

On the entry level, you’ll find the comfortably furnished living room with a wood-burning fireplace and flat screen TV. Take in the forest views through the large windows. High ceilings accented with knotty pine and gleaming hardwood floors accentuate the fresh look and feel of the property. Catch up on email or book your next stay with us on the Wi-Fi.

Breathe easy as the wind whispers through the pines while you relax with your favorite beverage on the balcony. Grill something tasty for dinner, then finish meal preparations in the well-equipped, updated kitchen, featuring granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. There’s plenty of seating to enjoy your meals at the breakfast bar or nearby dining table.

For your convenience, there’s also a half bath and laundry area on the main floor.

When you’re ready to turn in, the sofa transforms into a comfy queen sleeper. Or head upstairs to the loft bedroom to stretch out on the king bed. There’s an accordion partition for privacy.

Carnelian Woods is the perfect vacation setting to keep everyone entertained. 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, easy to find, company was easy to work with, everything they said it would be! "
Dec 08, 2020 - Haydan V., Manhattan, KS

"great location
overall, we were really comfortable and satisfied with our stay. Our only complaint was the upstairs bathroom, The sink was old, rusting and attempts to cover up corroded areas were peeling and made our stomachs turn. The toilet seat is wearing and needs to be replaced and the wall area around the shower spigot was peeling and pulling away from the wall. A hole was present. It wasn't in keeping with the tidiness and updated features present in the rest of the unit. "

"Ski Vacation
This condo is located in an ideal spot if you are planning to ski at multiple resorts. Most ski resorts are within a 20-30min. drive.. You’re about a five min. walk to Lake Tahoe. Amenities such as towels, hair dryer, dish and laundry soap were provided which was nice. Kitchen is well stocked, including a wine opener and grilling tools. The one issue we had(a minor one), when trying to keep the lower level warm it would make the upper level hot. Directions to the property were great and locating the lock box for the key was easy to find. Overall my family and I had a wonderful stay and we would stay again. "

"Tranquility in Carnelian Bay
My husband and I took a week away in Tahoe to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed 3 nights in the Woodsy Suite. We had an enjoyable time, and wished that we had spent all 6 nights at the Woodsy Suite instead of splitting our time between a South Lake Tahoe hotel and the Woodsy Suite."

"Clean rental
Clean and was adequate for our needs."
Oct 27, 2019 - , Folsom, CA

"very cozy little place
Just stayed here last week and found this unit to be perfect for two people. It's very bright with picture windows in living room. Well taken care of. King Bed seems to have a foam like mattress topper, soft and cushy. So much more accommodating and less expensive that most hotels. Just a delight to be there, especially since we had no power at home...."
Oct 12, 2019 - Katie L., Auburn, CA

"First Accommodations review
The rental place was beautiful and just what we expected. We had a pleasant time, the place was clean, the amenities were complete and the communications with the owner was clear and simple. We had a great experience."
Jul 26, 2019 - Christina W., N/A, CO

"Was nice to stay here in general, but some things were missed
It was very nice to stay in this Woodsy Suite!
It looks like recently renovated. We love dishes and style!
Just a couple things were missing:
* really tiny cutting board: , we really missed for normal size.
* you unable to use Grill because "...New Insurance/Fire Regulations prohibit BBQ propane tanks to be stored on property in Carnelian Woods Townhomes...." So, I got an explanation from management that some accommodations installed pipe gas grills, but this suite is not yet. Actually, there is a pipe installed but grill doesn't connect yet.

"Comfortable stay
This place is very accommodating, we had an equipped kitchen to cook our own meals, the balcony provided a nice view of the woods. Not to mention the bed is super comfortable. "
Dec 01, 2018 -

"Great Tahoe vacation stay!
Nice townhouse for the price that backed to trees, so area was super quiet. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. Bed upstairs and sofa bed weren't the most comfortable. The extra fans helped my spouse who must have them to sleep. Carnelian Bay is a nice part of North Lake Tahoe, but not much shopping or restaurants within walking distance. "
Oct 14, 2018 - Carie A., Lee's Summit, MO

"Excellent stay...exceeded expectations
Amazing home....very well maintained with a fully equipped kitchen...we had a great holiday in Tahoe...can’t wait to go back"
Oct 03, 2018 - Andrew B.

"Great Place to Relax in the Woods!
Excellent stay! The environment was extremely laid back which was exactly what we were looking for! Kayaking, other water sports, beaches, lakefront dining, shopping all within 3-5 miles or you could walk as well - the condo was nice - had all the basics in the kitchen and bed was comfortable we slept well - the scenery alone would make me come back! Absolutely gorgeous pines, beaches and of course the turquoise Lake Tahoe doesn’t get much better then that - and 75 degrees - perfect weather - great time! "

"Wonderful Facility - Know the BBQ rules. No A/C.
The location, Recreation center, condo itself were all highly valued. This location provides good access to Tahoe City, Squaw Valley, and close grocery stores. The unit itself was very spacious and well endowed with equipment required for a week-long stay.

The management company was stellar. They were very responsive during weekday office hours. One negative was the new rules for BBQ grills. For fire insurance purposes, they are no longer allowed to store propane on site. We could not use BBQ grills at recreation center without month advance purchase of evening rental. The recreation center and property management company are two different organizations. Hence, I had to go purchase a $60 tank of propane to use for the week we were there. My understanding is that they are changing out siding and decking materials so they can once again have BBQ grills on porches. Just be aware if that is important to you.

As far as condition of condo, the screen on upstairs bedroom was not fitting for window so we had one inch gaps around perimeter of screen. Good thing there are very few bugs in Lake Tahoe. We had to buy a fan off of craigslist to keep our condo cool during the night. No air conditioning. "
Aug 04, 2018 - Justin K., Morton, IL

"Just we wanted.
Clean, comfortable and a great value is the best way to describe the property. "
Jun 24, 2018 - Alexander H., dallas, TX

"NOT recommended
The bed was horribly uncomfortable, so we got no sleep. The couch was also very uncomfortable. (It was apparently new, but obviously very cheap.) Way overpriced."
Jun 20, 2018 - , San Jose, CA

"Nice place to stay in June
We enjoyed our stay in Carnelian Bay, and two blocks from the Lake was just right. There was nice view of the trees out the back windows, and it felt private to stay there. The kitchenware was good (above average for a rental) and we made use of it for two meals a day. The only thing missing was a measuring cup. We would stay there again."

"Ski Vacation
Great location, very clean house. It was very easy to book.
We had a great time.
Thank you"

"awesome stay
Took a trip with my wife and we enjoyed every minute!!!! It was perfect home away from home. Can’t wait to come back!!"
Feb 03, 2018 - , san mateo, CA

"Winter vacation
The home was very nice. I would not recommend for a stay of four people. The upstairs room had a large bed but the other sleeping arrangements where in the small living area. They had an air mattress available but it lost a lot of air throughout the night. I also think the Home was over priced for the size of the Home. The electronics were also a bit difficult to work as some did not work at all. It would have been helpful to have a TV list of channels because it was difficult to find a channel that was working. Overall the stay was good and the host was very nice. "
Jan 28, 2018 - Katie L.

"Nice, clean , comfortable condo
Good location for us. Skied both NorthStar and Squaw Valley. Complex had a nice hot tub. "
Jan 22, 2018 - Cindy L., Park City, UT

"Always my choice of stay in the woods
I've been staying in Carnelian Woods for the past 7 years, for our annual trip to Lake Tahoe or for just a quick weekend getaway and the townhouses never disappoint. Always clean, and perfect location to stay in the North Lake for a decent rate."

"Family vacay
Clean, nice, fully equipped, convienent, and easy access."

The apartment was even better than expected from the listing. The apartment is in great location and is extremely well=appointed. There were lots of nice touches to make it very comfortable."

Vacation was great, we had a wonderful time in Tahoe."

"Tahoe get away
Everything was as expected: clean, fully functional kitchen, appreciated the 2 packages of laundry soap to wash towels. Located near beaches, hiking paths and resturants. "
Aug 15, 2017 - Andrea R., Nipomo, CA

"Perfect for Two!
Pull out bed not comfortable with teenager and property staff not friendly, but overall a very comfortable, well stocked property. "
Aug 07, 2017 - , Tigard, OR

"Very comfortable
The place was perfect for my husband and two kids. Comes with everything you need. I guess the only complaint was the carpets were dirty and I found hair in the dishes which grossed us out, so we ended having to buy plastic things to use. Maybe they should have cleaner double check for that stuff. Other then that it's a great little get away for a family or even just a couple. "

"Carnelian Woods #28
Our flight got in late from Reno so the rental office was closed. I called the after hours number and spoke with a man who helped us get into the unit. He kept referring to an email I was to have received with the code for the key lock box and the address of the unit and. I only received 1 email and that was in February ( 5 months didn't have an address except to the main office. It also had no code for getting a key. He assured me my email had all this and was 5 pages long. My email was 5 pages and did NOT include any of what he was speaking of. Anyway we were in by midnight. We were wide awake so we watched some tv. While watching we lost signal. Since nothing was coming across either tv we went to bed. The next 2 days when we came home from being out and about we had no tv reception at all. I kept calling the office and leaving message with the service but since it was the holiday weekend nobody helped us. We understood they would be closed but we thought we paid enough money for this rental that somebody could make sure we at least had tv. When nobody called us back after day 3 we called the dish provider who sent out a technician to fix it. They claimed this property has signal issues often. Anyway so that was fixed and then we realized after buying stuff to grill that even though there was a brand new gas grill on the balcony; we were unable to use it due to some law regarding propane. This was not mentioned in the rental post. Other than a couple dirty dishes in the cupboard and a slightly dirty living room rug the unit appeared clean enough. The unit is in a very nice quiet property that sits a short uphill walk from the beach. Very peacefull setting in the trees. We used the pool several days but were disappointed to find the pool and Jacuzzis close at 7pm sharp whether people are in it or not. This was kind of bad since its summer and a holiday week and it's obviously a place filled with families with young children. Motel pools are open to 10."
Jul 13, 2017 - Jo M., Rock Island, IL

"Condo with a view!
Wonderful private condo in the woods. Having 1 and 1/2 baths was great and we enjoyed the comfortable pullout sofa bed to look at the serene forest views. "
Feb 23, 2017 - LINDA L., LAGUNA BEACH, CA

"A clean and sleek unit that fits perfectly for two
My wife and I stayed in this unit during our ski trip to Lake Tahoe. The size of the unit is perfect for the two of us. It is quiet and located within 30 minutes drive to two major ski areas, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and Northstar. The unit offers everything you'll need in an apartment. Some of the appliances are slightly outdated but they didn't stop us for having a good time. "

"A great stay
A great place"
Jan 29, 2017 -

"Wonderful Stay
The property, in the are of Carnelian Bay, seems to cater to summer travelers. Thus it felt quite isolated in early Dec., which we appreciated. Our interests were in hiking, and cross country skiing. We found great hikes, as well as shopping, restaurants, and Tahoe City within a 10 min drive. Groomed x-country trails were also within 10 minutes, and ungroomed trails were within 20 minutes. All of these were located southwest of the condo. We did not explore the area to the north or east.

The condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is much better for 2 people than it would be for 4, since the loft bedroom is partially open to the living room, even when the upstairs accordian door was closed. For us, this was not a problem, but it could be for a party of more than 2 people, or for light sleepers.

I highly recommend these accomodation to a couple looking for an outdoor getaway during (early) winter. Its proximity to the lake, should also make it a good choice for those interested in summer activities."

"Our stay at Woodsy Suite
No cable T.V. The bed needs to be updated NOT GOOD AT ALL!!! "

"Wonderful Tahoe Trip
Great condo perfect for a couple looking for a nice updated place. Wonderful kitchen and overall a great stay."

We have had a wonderful time. We felt like at home and found everything we were looking for. The location is great, one block from the lake, supermarkets not too far. The swimming pool is awesome!!"
Aug 04, 2016 - Stephanie N., san francisco, CA

"Great place!
Great location, clean, well-equipped, and lots of activities for kids in complex. The couch bed was comfy and kids enjoyed Netflix and Hulu while we got ready in the morning. We would come back for sure!"
Jul 31, 2016 - Karen B.

"Our Tahoe trip was amazing!
This was our 2nd time staying here. This time was quite an improvement. They did a very nice remodel of the kitchen that has all you need. We loved being in the woods, so nice to get up in the morning and have a coffee and read on the deck, so peaceful. Very short walk to the beach. You could get a drink, breakfast, lunch, rent a kayak, paddleboard, etc. would definitely stay here again. We miss it so much already!
Jul 11, 2016 - , Phoenix, AZ

"Cozy Condo By the Lake
It was the perfect place for us. The location was great and the space was well stocked and cozy. We loved having a full kitchen and little back deck. We were walking distance to the lake and loved the part of Tahoe we were close to, we will stay here again, no question! "
Jun 07, 2016 - Anna M.

"Amazing Property
I had an amazing time staying at Trent's place in Carnelian Woods. The house is well maintained and is perfect for a getaway at Lake Tahoe. I felt like I was at home during my week long stay here. All the appliances are brand new and work as intended. The location is perfect as its nestled between woods and offers an excellent view. The house looks even better when you visit it. Trent was very responsive and made sure there wasn't any problem during the stay. I would definitely like to visit the place again and stay at the property. I recommend it to everybody visiting Lake Tahoe area."
Mar 31, 2016 - Anurag D.

"Great spot for a variety of ski resorts
Great spot! Easily accessible from main road around lake. Stayed here for a skiing weekend and was very convienent to Squaw and Northstar. Loft was as described and Trent was very communicative. He even offered suggestions of alternate properties to better accommodate us. Check in and check out were simple and instructions were indicated in a detailed welcome packet. "

"Great ski getaway
The condo was the perfect place to call home while skiing in Lake Tahoe. It was cozy, clean, and had everything we needed. Would come back again!"
Feb 15, 2016 - David B.

"Great way to enjoy Tahoe
The condo was the perfect way to enjoy Tahoe. The place has been updated, aside from the bathrooms, but, there is a Toto toilet, and if you own one then you know how sweet they are. We were totally cozy with the heater and fire in the fire place and was awesome to have the nice kitchen to cook breakfast in. I didn't get the bed, but the pull out bed in the coach was actually comfortable. Plenty of towels and linens, blankets etc etc. Would totally rent this one again and would highly recommend."
Feb 04, 2016 - Chris S., Fort bragg, CA

"Beautiful unit
This is a studio loft unit, not a 1 bedroom as advertised. But the condition is almost absolutely perfect. Everything is new, extremely clean. They have the most comfortable sofabed i ever slept on. Management company is weird, they charge a damage deposit months in advance, hold on to it for a while, and have a few pages of rules that i never saw in other places we stayed. If you can put up with them, you will for sure enjoy your stay."

"Unit #28
We stayed in unit #28 8/24 - 8/26. Overall it was great. The place was clean and well kept. A few things were not working. The blinds down stairs were a mess and non functioning. We could not get the cable service to work in the upstairs bedroom. The temperature was fine but in the instructions it said to turn down the temp to 60 degrees when we left but upon pushing the control buttons I could not move it at all. It was at a constant 71 degrees.
Aug 28, 2015 - John S., La Mesa, CA

"Very Nice condo Well worth the price.
This property was great for me and my 2 was very clean and upgraded we had enough room. The only thing that was wrong was when we got there the towel rack came out of the wall.We got in late so the next morning I called the property management to report it they were very Nice and said they would take care of it. I definitely would go thru first accommodations again."
Aug 02, 2015 - Angela C., Hesperia, CA

"Wonderful Place!
We loved the place we stayed in! It is located walking distance from restaurants and the beach.
The manager was extremely friendly and helpful on our check out. We will definitely stay here again!"

"Quiet retreat in the Woods of North Lake Tahoe
This was our 4th family vacation to Carnelian Bay. Our adult daughter and her boyfriend traveled from the East Coast to join us for our traditional family gathering. While we stayed in a larger condo on the premises with other family members, they enjoyed this quiet, well-equipped, clean, and updated condo that was tucked into the woods. They enjoyed the amenities of the Carnelian Bay resort with a beautiful pool, ping-pong, tennis courts, bocce ball and basketball court. They shared that the resort staff were very friendly and helpful. They enjoyed kayaking in the early morning hours on the lake, hiking on several nature trails and picnicking at King’s Beach. They are avid cooks and found the kitchen to be well-stocked with pots, pans, and dishes. They did mention that the dish washer is a little dated. All in all, the condo was a wonderful vacation destination. My daughter and I highly recommend this vacation rental. "

"Clean condo
Clean condo, with updated kitchen. We enjoyed the private location,especially on the back deck. Nice bare floors, large screen tv, perfect for a couple or small family."
Jun 15, 2015 - Sherry B., Vancouver, WA

"Great Location, quiet and secluded
We enjoyed out stay. The condo was very clean and worked well enough for us. The reason for the 4 stars instead of a 5 star is a few things didn't work. The toaster had a bad smell when it was used, the upstairs TV didn't seem to work. We were hot upstairs but we opened a window and thank goodness they had a fan which was great! The bathroom could use some updating upstairs and the fan stays on the entire time you are in there, the 1 light switch turns on the bright light and fan at the same time so you can't talk to anyone or hear anything while you are getting ready. The entire downstairs and kitchen was very nice and updated. We would stay there again."

"Good value for money
Sweet little apartment in a complex, and very conveniently located on the north shore right on the Cali/Nevada border, very close to the lake."
May 25, 2015 - Sebastian E., Novato, CA

"Great location, nice condo, great to work with.
The apartment looks a lot newer in the picture than in person, but it's still a great location and condo. The kitchen had everything needed, easy to grab the keys, and little needed to check out when leaving. The only complaint was that we don't think the sheets were washed in the bed we stayed in."
Mar 20, 2015 - , Long Island City, NY

"Nice cozy getaway spot
We really enjoyed the unit. Very cozy and comfortable. Had a remote feel yet still close to the area activities. Couldn't get cell service in the unit but it turned out to be a good thing."

"Home Away From Home
I am pleased to write a review for this location. All the information provided on the listing was very accurate. I initially chose this location for the reasonable price and slightly modern feel. The price was very fair for the space and amenities provided. It was about 20-30 minutes away from Northstar but the drive did not feel long because of the nice views. I appreciated that the space was very clean for our family of 4. It felt like home away from home because it was very cozy and I like my home tidy. I also chose this location because of the amenities such as a laundry and a kitchen. These items help with kids. The only disappointing item is that the kids were looking forward to a jacuzzi but we did not want to travel to the community center for this. Overall, I recommend this to others as this location is worth the price!"

"Nice and cozy condo
We've stayed there for a 4 nights and it was super nice. Quite location, nice view and you won;t see anybody (or just occasionally meet someone around . What else you need to escape from busy big city life?).
I read in comments about wi-fi issue, but it wasn't true, wifi was super fast.
The only issue we had during stay - whether was pretty cold - around 15 in the night and heater turns every 20-30 minutes and it is quite noisy. Apart from that everything was nice."
Jan 15, 2015 - Ilya N.

"it was a wonderful stay
The unit was very clean and confortable.The kitchen and bedroom furnitures were very neat as well. One thing I felt little short was heating fan noise.
It was bothering whole night whenever it went on and off.
Except the fan, I can highly recommend to my friends this unit.

"Tahoe Iron Man 2014
OMG, what a beautifull site. It was simply perfect. The location was almost perfect cause we had to go back and forth from kings beach to Squaw Valley, but still. Thank you for this wonderfull place to stay. one thing and because i'm not that kind of person that complains a lot. but the pool and and the spa should have been open still, and because it's the IM competition, of course people will use the pool and spa to train and relax before the event. please consider."

"3 day Weekend Getaway
The location was good, the check in was very straight forward, and the place was clean. The only downside is that the jacuzzi is located right next to the main office so it's a little weird having people in the office just watching you while you are in the jacuzzi. They are literally no more than 3 feet away separated by a window. If you are not planning to swim, then this is the place for you! The rec center can be more updated with their games as well. Again, if you dont plan on using the rec center, this place would be perfect!"
Jun 26, 2014 - Anthony C., San Jose, CA

"Nice townhouse for couple or small family
Nice and clean, plenty of space.
Excellent kitchen equipment for cooking.

"Some good and some bad
Plumbing problems that never did get fixed. The sheets that were on the bed when we arrived were so old and ruff that my wife couldn't sleep on them. We were glad there was better sheets in the closet to use instead. The barbecue grill was so dirty from the last people that we didn't use it."

Over all we had a great time! The kitchen was smaller than expected. The shower head was too low for anyone over 5'3". Appliances were out dated and the coffee pot was too small. But for the time we spent in the Condo it was worth it! Wish the hot tub
and pool time closings were extended. We would love to stay again."

"Unadvertised "historic" accomodations
This was out first time to visit Lake Tahoe. The location of the condo was good: quiet and walking distance to the lake. The area is rustic and the pool was the one bright spot. We were dismayed to find the condo was of 1970s/80s vintage, hence the "historic" designation. The stove was similar to one we had 30 years ago; we were afraid to stay in the kitchen while using the microwave; the furniture had to have come from the owner's home or a thrift shop; the tv in the bedroom was missing and the one in the lroom had 12 channels; the area rug and throw rugs were heavily stained (we put them in a corner so as not to step on them. I could go on and on...but won't
All in all, we won't stay again in this ancient site!!!"

"Very plain
The house was dirty for what we expected for the price. All the appliances have been there since the 1950's. It took 3 hours and 2 cycles to dry a load of laundry. The spa was barely open and it was one of the main reasons for booking the condo. Please list the hours of operation on your web site. "

"March 2011 Carmelian Bay stay
Conveniently located to Alpine Meadows and North Star. Nice hot tubs at the recreating center. Condo is well equipped for drying wet ski clothing and cooking meals. "

"Decent place, uncomfortable bed.

"A flash back to 1979
alot of lights did not work and pull out bed had yellow stains. Fire place can't be cleaned if ash is still hot. "

"Just what I needed
The unit was beautiful and clean but I would have to say that the biggest treat was working with the property manager.
We were in touch well before my stay, during and after. Very accomodating, profession yet extremely friendly. Thank you! I was planning the next stay before I even left. "

"mixed review for carnelian bay
upside: the place was well located and the clubhouse well appointed with nice hottubs. The manager was kind & helpful. downside: the condo had a giant unrepaired hole in the downstairs bathroom that leaked, and the place was a little stuffy/moldy and hadn't been updated at all since it was built. "

" Review
The decor in this unit is 1970ish junk. The stove, fridge & micro wave are inadequate. The ceiling fan in the bathroom has no grill and the ceiling is held together with tape. Hot water always ran out with only 2 people taking showers. Would never stay here again."

"Expensive for what you get
The location is ok although you need a car to get anywhere.
Old furniture and bedsheets, not a very nice building, air conditioned not working (so it was quite hot at night) and a very small terrace. I think it's too expensive (150 dollars per night) for what you get.
Very disapointing!"

"#28 Carnelian Woods
The place is cozy and nice for one or two people. However, it's time to spend a little money and upgrade it from the early 80's. The downstairs bathroom fan cover fell off on my son's head. Some new furnishings and a few more pictures on the wall would be nice. Place is very private and view of woods is very nice."

"VERY dated
The location and condo association services (hot tub, rec ctr) were fine. The unit was extremely dated, old rug and furniture. Needs updating. "

"Nice... but needs some TLC
Everything ended up working out just great, although when the shower was used, the 1st floor bathroom ceiling leaked."

"Pretty Awesome!!!
The only thing that we found frustrating was the difficulty in getting a parking pass, that it turned out we really didn't need.

We ended up just putting a note on our car, but it was kind of a pain walking over there a couple times to no avail.

Great location, nice property. I thought it might be a lot more appealing if the place was up-dated. The bed skirt in the upper "master" was ripped, the bed linens and blankets were very old looking. The couch was very well used as was the other furniture in the unit. Other wise I loved the walking / running trail.The pool was fun too. "

"I would not recommend unit 28, atleast till they fix major issues.
The issues that I have are with Unit 28, NOT First Accommodations. The unit is in dire need of repair, for example there is a light in the closet that is missing and the wires are exposed with no caps on them, very dangerous; the ceiling in the downstairs bathroom is falling down, the upstairs bathroom needs repair also. When you go to sleep the house creaks and pops all night long, so if you are a light sleeper you will be kept awake. The last issue that I had which is no big deal is that nothing in the kitchen matched, the silverware was a mix of at least 5 sets, the plates look to be whatever they could find. In conclusion, if you are looking for a bargain this is the place but just remember you are definitely getting what you pay for in the of case this unit. "

I also rented propery CW023. the only thing I think could be better was having an extra roll of toilet paper and some tissues to start in condo. basically they were clean and updated and we did enjoy our stay."

"Carnelian bay condos a bit older
This is the second time we booked a vacation rental. Our previous experience was in south lake area. I think our main "less than positive" comment was the fact that the unit we stayed in seemed to be a lot "older" in side, than our previous experience. Other then that our experience met expectations. I would probably recommend to a freind to try a different location so we could exchange notes and get a better idea of what we our expectations should be."

"A Great Place To Stay
Although not a 4-star hotel, this condo was cozy and comfortable with everything we needed. The location was outstanding, right across the street from the lake shore, and easy walking distance to restaurants. We loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast, watching the birds and squirrels in the woods."

very helpful staff, nice place, very helpful with last minute rental, super close to the mountains, hope to get up there again this season or next"

"Nice quiet unit
Unit was nice and quiet. Don't use the phone, 2 min calls to check my voicemail cost $4-5 dollars each."

"Good visit
We enjoyed the stay as usual. This is about the 12th year we have been to these properties. Thanks, Jane Diaz and family"
