5/5 Excellent

Wonderful in every way!
The owner of this property is lovely. The directions were easy to follow. It is spotlessly clean. What could be better!

5/5 Excellent

Great week in Donner!
We had a wonderful week at the property. The toys and kids things were such a great addition. Our kids didn’t even want to leave the condo because they just wanted to play with the toys! Only issue is the early-rising neighbors upstairs, but it helped us get a (very) early start on the day.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful condo with great amenities for kids!
We wish we had stayed so much longer! This condo is spotlessly clean, and has a great full kitchen. Everything is meticulously organized with bins labeled with each set of extra linens — love this helpful touch! There were toys, books, and games for kids and a whole play area in the garage. It’s a little drive to Lake Tahoe, about 35 or 45 minutes to the beaches we visited, but a perfectly lovely spot to stay!

5/5 Excellent

5 stars all the way!
We loved our stay here. Everything was as great as advertised. XC trails just outside the front door and a short walk to the downhill lifts. James was immediately responsive to any emails I sent. Highly recommended! We'll be back.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Spring Getaway
This was a fantastic, super comfortable condo, just a short stroll from family friendly Tahoe Donner Downhill, and very close to Tahoe Donner Cross Country. We did both - a sunny and uncrowded pleasure. The place was so clean, so comfortable, and we loved your DVD collection. And we got some nice meals in downtown Truckee, a really cool town that has done a great job on social distancing. We would definitely come back. Thank you James et al.!
