You found it—a comfortable vacation setting near everything—in Carnelian Bay! This spotless, newly updated one bedroom plus loft unit has room to sleep five guests. And when you're not skiing down the slopes or enjoying a day out on Lake Tahoe, this condo in Carnelian Woods features excellent amenities, all at a super convenient location in North Tahoe!
The cozy living room is freshly furnished for comfortable relaxation. Put your feet up and sip your favorite beverage while basking in the ambiance of the gas fireplace. Take it easy, keeping everyone entertained with Wi-Fi and new flat screen television with cable and DVD player.
Step out on the adjacent covered deck to barbeque steaks for dinner while you take in the forest view. Listen to the wind whisper through the pines, breathe deep of the fresh air, and feel the stress of daily life drift away.
For the rest of your meal prep, the well-equipped kitchen features new countertops and appliances. A home-cooked dinner after a day on the slopes is easy in this space where the dishwasher makes clean up a breeze. There is seating at the breakfast bar and tall bistro table.

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! This is one of the closest units to the lake. 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!

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.

This rental was perfect for our family of 3. The location was perfect for all our events and easy to get to them. The townhouse was quiet and so peaceful. We walked to the beach in about 3 minutes. It was hard to find a place that would accommodate us all. This was perfect! My wife is disabled and needed a place with no stairs, for the main living and a bedroom. She was able to enjoy all the family gatherings. It was a little difficult getting to the door as the walkway was sloped and right at the door, the steepest. We were able to find the best path and everything worked well. We enjoyed our stay so much, we wanted to stay longer. Thank you for hosting us. We made great memories. "

"A truly awesome experience
The townhouse is on the north side of the lake, walking distance to the shoreline. The community is quiet and well taken care of. The residence is impeccable. Clean, well appointed and well situated in the community. "

"Great Place!
Loved this townhome! Perfect for my family of 3. Clean and quiet. Lots of necessities. Centrally located. Walking distance to beach (Waterman's) and restaurants (Ol' Post Office and Garwoods). Property Management team very informative and responsive. Will stay here again."

"Very recommended for all people
Me & families are very happy with the house are very clean, very quite, a lot a space for 4 people in it. Close with the king beaches, Plenty’s of a hiking trails, and close by with a lot restaurants. We are definitely come back again for a second trip at Lake Tahoe"

"Modern and convenient
We were totally satisfied with this unit. Great location, great decor, great amenities."

"Great for a family of four weekend getaway to ski!
The condo was clean and nicely decorated--it has been a bit updated since these photos were taken. The kitchen is not super updated but we didn't use it to cook--just had takeout and it did have amenities to make coffee, etc. Was wishing for some plastic bags or tin foil for leftovers but not a big deal. The Smart TV and fireplace were great--the place was quiet and we all slept well. King bed in the master is a bit on the soft side but still slept well after skiing we were too tired to not sleep! Complex is quiet and easy parking. We loved all of the Tahoe maps to look at--nice décor and felt very "Tahoe" and cozy. We'd stay again. "

Rental was nice. It is very small. With noticeable wear and tear. But still nice. There was construction next door for roof leak when I was there. Pounding, sawing, drilling , people on roof. Following that day lots of banging and clanging as cleaning crew cleaned up the repair mess. 1st accommodations review was that I shouldn’t stay in a condo cause I complained. My response is that I shouldn’t have been charged and they should have been more sympathetic to a guest staying next to a construction zone. When the very noisy cleaning crew, thumping son walls etc left they had a cart filled with multiple large trash bags. My experience has been it’s always better to stay in place managed by the person who owns it."

"Great location
This home was perfect for my family and I. It was nearby grocery stores the lake was across the street and There was even miniature golf down the street. I would highly recommend this placeAnd definitely see myself booking this place in the future."

"Nice Condo for Small Group
Cozy condo that is perfect for 4 people. Layout is essentially a typical 1BR condo with a loft. Nice access to Squaw and Northstar and other amenities.

Did not like having to use a third party process with separate bookings and paperwork to actually reserve this thing. I do not think VRBO should permit this as it is not what the service is for. "

"Tahoe Vacay
The photo is exaggerated on the size of the townhouse. Much smaller than picture reveals.
The supplies in the kitchen were scant.
There was a blood stain on the extra bedspread which was extremely unappealing. Throw it away ~
We felt a little uncomfortable with the passcode on the front door. "
Oct 22, 2019 - Rosanne S., Rocklin, CA

"Good location and good space
Good location and good space - we were happy with the condo. Would love to have found a hair dryer in the condo."

"Fantastic Rental, Surprise 3rd Party Rental Company Communication
Overall this is a GREAT rental property! It’s within walking distance of a few restaurants, the Sierra Boat Company, marina, mini golf, and Carnelian Bay where there’s a pebble beach with kayak/SUP rentals and a beach cafe.

The rental is very clean, exactly like the pictures on the website. Master bed is comfy. Pillows are super thin. We ended up grabbing the pillows from upstairs for extra comfort. There were thicker pillows in the master closet but no extra linens for use. No A/C but each room is equipped with a small fan (a box fan is provided for the living room) and nice windows that crank open so you can let in the cool mountain air while you sleep. We didn’t have any trouble staying cool.

I feel like the property’s affiliation with First Accommodations should be disclosed/added to the rental listing to avoid confusion for future renters. When I booked through VRBO and got the VRBO confirmation email, I thought my rental was set to go (just like any other rental through the website). Nope. All of First Accommodations’ emails went to my junk email and I didn’t even realize I had more paperwork/emails to respond to before my arrival. They ended up calling me 2 weeks before my arrival and we got everything worked out. Just wish I would have known!

I will say that it IS very dark, especially in the living room/kitchen area, due to low natural light sources. It didn’t bother us, since we were gone most of the day, but something to consider if you plan to be “home” during the daylight hours. A positive to the “cave-like” nature of the rental is that it stays very cool throughout the day even when it’s hot outside.

Overall, we’d 100% stay at this rental again! It was perfect for our summer vacation to Tahoe!"
Sep 01, 2019 - Shea H., Monrovia, CA

"What a Gem
Cute and cozy place! We enjoyed our stay and loved sitting outside and did a little barbecuing on the Weber grill. Bed was comfy and the other amenities provided were all that we needed
We used the pool and hiked the par course twice! "
Jul 21, 2019 - Jill B., Sacramento, CA

"Nice place for family getaway
Lovely place we enjoyed A lot we definitely want to come back "
Jul 06, 2019 - Katherine I albarran B., El Cerrito, CA

"Lovely place walk to the beach
Lovely town home with 1 bedroom downstairs and a loft with sleeping space for 3. Best thing about this place was it’s prox to the beach, just a half block away. We didn’t get to use any of the great amenities due to our short stay, but they looked great.
If there was anything I would change it would be to provide better lighting. If you want sunshine this is not the place for you. The woods are great, but felt like we were in a cave in the daytime. Just a few brighter bulbs would held. All lights very low wattage. The master bed was also really soft. Great for many but I prefer a firmer mattress.
Overall a nice rental. Would love to spend more time there. "

"Great accommodation
Like the picture"

"Location and relaxation
My partner and another couple spent a relaxing weekend at the Onxy Gem. The location was ideal for exploring the area and it was quick walk to the beach and restaurants. The condo was clean and nice, and had a fully stocked kitchen which we utilized when we stayed in one night for dinner. I would definitely come back!!! "
Sep 20, 2017 - Christine V., Sacramento, CA

"Accommodations were great, too bad hubby got sick.
The Onyx Gem was the perfect place for the 3 of us to stay for a few days in North Lake Tahoe. The condo suited our needs perfectly and it was conveniently located to many things we wanted to do. My husband was very sick with Lyme disease but the urgent care clinic in Tahoe City was convenient as was the hospital in Incline (in case you need medical attention!) The primary improvement I could suggest would be to have a hairdryer in one of the bathrooms. Other than that we all agreed it was a great place to stay. "
Jun 26, 2017 - Susan G., WEXFORD, PA

"Spring Break Fun
My family and I enjoyed our stay here. The space was perfect for the four of us. The reservation process was smooth and the house was very tidy inside."

"My husbands birthday ??
After a long drive it was so nice to find our cozy condo .. nicely furnished and comfortable.. On Friday a storm hit and it snowed all day !! Our electricity went out for about an hour but a very nice man at the phone number provided walked us through getting the heat back on .. in the morning we woke to find someone shoveling our walk way !! We will definitely come back !! It was a wonderful 3 days !!"

Exactly as shown. Very clean. Loved it. Would stay again."

"great place
nice and quiet and beautiful. furnishings were just my style, and bed was very comfy! it would have been nice to have a reading lamp near the couch. a standing one would have fit in nicely. also, would like to have a set of glasses, not plastic cups to use in the kitchen. would definitely stay here again!"
Nov 01, 2016 - Kathleen F., Castro Valley, CA

"Great location, very clean and roomy loft.
Everything was. Enter than expected. Maintenance was great repairing fireplace promptly and giving tutorial on tv operation. Great value for price."

"Carnelian Bay Delight
Great property! Super clean, looks just like the photos, and easy walking distance to the lake, a public beach, and a few different restaurants and miniature golf for the kids. Great combination of location, and features."

"good time
not to fancy but very clean, somethings had damage"

"Awesome Place
We had a great time. The Onyx Gem had something for all of us. The pool, game area and playground were fun for the kids and the location to the lake was fun for the adults. We will stay here again in a heartbeat. "
Jul 31, 2016 - Sharlee B.

"North Tahoe Gem
This unit was perfect. A very short walk to the lake's edge and with a beautiful outdoor pool, nicely maintained tennis courts and excellent staff on site. Quiet but with enough activity to look alive, we would not hesitate to rent from these owners again. In fact, we'd seek it out specifically.

Highly recommended."

"Girls getaway
The condo was lovely, and just right for our needs. Loved the privacy of it. "
Jun 28, 2016 - , South Jordan, UT

"Tahoe cabin
Fabulous place- very comfortable and clean inside (we loved the decor!), the place is along the water ! Best place to stay during any season. Plenty of delicious places to eat and so many activities around the area. "

"Great escape!
Loved this place. Up to date, contemporary yet inviting, and a great location. I'll definitely be back."
Jun 12, 2016 - Nolan M.

"Love Lake Tahoe
The townhome is located about 10 minutes from Kings Beach. It was very clean and everything worked. It's a great place to stay and be comfortable. The only downside was the pool was not open the days that we stayed, but overall it's in a nice area and neighborhood. I would definitely stay there again. "
Jun 10, 2016 - Roberta Jo O.

"Great Short Stay
Our first time to Lake Tahoe. We loved the area and the apartment was perfect"
Apr 17, 2016 - Patrick G.

"Ski trip success!
We had a great time in Tahoe! The townhome was clean, had all the equipment we needed to make a big pot of chili, and was walking distance from the old post office cafe. We were within a half hour of several ski resorts, downtown Tahoe City, or King's Beach. The amenities were great (clubhouse with mini-arcade and pool tables, as well as jacuzzis and sauna!), and we would definitely stay here for future trips! :)"

"Cozy & Comfortable
As good as advertised. Very clean with nice comfortable furnishings. Nice Entertainment center in the living room as well as the master bedroom. The internet was fast and the AppleTV made it easy to watch streaming media. The fireplace was convenient and warm. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook full meals. Short drive to Safeway as well as a variety of restaurants."
Mar 13, 2016 - Elliot L., San Mateo, CA

"Onyx - Thanksgiving
This was the best experience we have had with renting a condo. Everything about it was great! The staff had gone in early to turn on the heat prior to our arrival and everything was stocked well. We will definitely be booking this condo again in the future."
Nov 30, 2015 - Dustin R., Chico, Ca

"Good service
We probably wouldn't have had any interaction with First Accommodations had it not been for the cable/internet connection going down. We stopped by the office and they said they'd look into it and get back to us. I suppose I'm cynical but I put the chances of that happening right up there with being hit by a meteorite. But a little later I received a text from Cynthia saying that she had arranged for the cable company to come out for repairs the following evening, and in the meantime provided us with a nearby wifi signal that we could piggyback. Pretty sweet. The cable repair person showed up the following evening and we were back in business. The wifi came in handy because cell reception is pretty bad in that area and it was very convenient to have wifi for planning.
First Accommodations provided good service and followed-up on what they said they'd do."

"Lovely Place to Stay in Tahoe
This was our first time visiting Lake Tahoe and we're so glad we chose this wonderful little condo! It saved us a lot of money on food since it has a full kitchen. The loft upstairs is adorable and very accomodating if you have more than one couple staying. It's very clean and updated with a small balcony that even has a grill. The location was great, just a short walk to King's Beach and a short drive to Sand Harbor. The only complaint I would leave is that the internet didn't work most of the time. The connection kept going in and out. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Lake Tahoe which I hope is sooner rather than later!"
Oct 21, 2015 - Thomas K., Lawrenceville, GA

overall I liked the property. The bathroom extras only consisted of soap, shampoo and conditioner would be nice. The carpets were quite dirty, I inky know this because my daughters pants picked up a lot of dirt while crawling. The shoe/boot caddy is well past the tile area so maybe people thought wearing shoes on the carpet was OK, I am not sure.

The tub wouldn't hold water initially but with a lot of trial and error I was able to set the drain correctly. The hot water heater is also set quite scalding hot, seems unnecessary and expensive for Trent."

"Always a great experience
There's no other place I look for when my family and I spend either a weekend getaway or a long vacation in Lake Tahoe, but First Accommodations. Customer service has always been great and the townhomes and cabins/houses are well equipped and fit our needs. I'm always coming back."
Aug 14, 2015 - FRANCIS J., BRENTWOOD, CA

"Comfortable, clean, updated lodging
This was our second year staying at Carnelian Woods but first at Onyx Gem, which has obviously been recently renovated throughout and furnished with quality materials. The beds and linens are very comfortable. It was nice having extra space in the loft upstairs. The only downsides are that it lacks a regular, family-friendly dining table and regular toaster, and the unit is rather dark. Everything was great, and the property manager even alerted us that Maintenance would come in to change a light bulb she had noticed out. Thanks! We'll consider it for next year. "
Aug 12, 2015 - Trina L., Mountain View, CA

"Nice place
My stay at onyx gem stay was good. The house was very nice but the housekeeper were slow at cleaning the place. The place was not done cleaning until an hour and half later from the check-in time. Other yuan that it was really awesome."
Aug 05, 2015 - , Tulare, Ca

"Not so Good
This place was small, dark, and crawling with HUGE ants. Not real clean either."
