About the property

Perfect Layout for Two Families - .5 mile from Ski Village. Rec. Center Acces

Maximum 8 Adults.

Our warm and charming home has the perfect floorplan in a location close to the village, the ski lifts and the recreational facilities. Each cozy bedroom is in one corner of the house with no common walls, all surrounding the open kitchen, dining and living area. The living room has vaulted ceilings, a 50 inch flat screen television and a new gas fireplace. There is very fast WiFi and premium cable television.

The kitchen is in the center of the house, with all new stainless steel appliances. You can prepare any size meals with all equipment and table settings at your fingertips. There is a large deck off the family room/dining/kitchen area facing the almost level backyard surrounded by lovely trees and open space.

The entrance to the Northstar development's hiking trails is a short walk away. You can also walk or drive to the village where you can ride the chairlift to their hiking trail system.

The bedrooms have duvets and down comforters. Each room has plenty of pillows, a lot of closet space, and cable TV. Two rooms have their own baths, and two have a bath between them.

The master bedroom has a king bed. Another has a queen bed. One has two double beds, and there is a fourth bedroom with a double, which also has the washer and dryer in it, and its own bath. Through this bedroom is access to large loft. The loft has four twin beds and a queen futon.

There is easy access to the front door with generous parking (in Summer at least three cars, up to six depending on their size. Winter to can safely park two probably three and maybe four). You can leave your car and enjoy the complimentary shuttle service to the beautiful new village, recreation center, golf course, and ski slopes.

The house can accommodate a maximum of 12 people including no more than 8 adults.

We have found the home to be comfortable and inviting, and want our guests to feel the same way. Please feel free to ask any questions.

About Reynold Martinez

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have been enjoying trips to Tahoe for over 40 years. We have explored the North, South, and West Shores and find them all to have their charms.

Reynold Martinez purchased this house in 2012

Why Reynold Martinez chose Truckee

We have found that Northstar provides the best year-round vacation location at Tahoe. There is a terrific ski resort in the development, restaurants, bars, and a recreation center all near this home. Best of all, once you arrive you really can choose to park the car and rely entirely on the shuttle system within the resort.

In the summer, the pool is one of the best at Tahoe with lifeguards, snack bar, children's pool, children's activity center (with supervised play activities at a small fee), tennis, and golf. There is also a separate pool and hot tubs for adults only.

Re-stating, though, the best thing here is the ability to go car-free.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfectly designed with the living area in the center and a pair of bedrooms on either side of the home. Two families can easily find terrific separation.

This house is typically one of the first to be served by the shuttle when returning home (and last picked up before going to the village). No long rides. Really nice at the end of a day skiing.

Northstar Weekend

  • 5 of 5

It couldn't have been better. The house is perfect for family/group weekends in Northstar. Everything was exceptionally clean and in working order. Transportation via Northstar shuttle was convenient, once we downloaded the "Northstar Transportation" app from the Apple App Store.

Great communication with the owner as well, and he made everything easier. Even had the heat running remotely based on our arrival time. Thanks Reynold!

Great location and perfect for multiple families with several kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. We were three families with 5 children ages 7-9. The sleeping loft was perfect for the kids and we all had plenty of personal space (and bathrooms). The home is warm and comfortable and well-laid out. Location is great and was nice to be able to take the shuttle to North Star. Owner was easy and pleasant to communicate with. Would stay here again.

Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It has a great location at Northstar and the house has just about everything you need. The owner was very responsive. We were 8 men who were there for a golf weekend. The only drawback are the single beds upstairs are not comfortable for average size adults.
