“Fourth year here and I tell you, there's always more to see...”
Reviewed August 4, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

PROS: Since my last review, Mr. Gil has allowed my husband, son and I to make this our family tradition! We LOVE this place... we always look forward to our stay here! This condo has been remodeled and it's AMAZING!! GREAT TASTE IN THE CHANGES, I MIGHT ADD! We're so blessed year after year... the private beach ALWAYS maintained! The surrounding area.. well let me say, we've bought bikes to cycle to and from the many bike trails! We LOVE the Safeway in Kings Beach that have gone so far to make customer service their number 1 priority! LOVE the front office! They are SO very welcoming and so delighted that we come back... It's like family! As long as we are on a tight budget... YES, our high school kid is going to Bellarmine, we will ALWAYS stay here... and until we are blessed, we would LOVE one day to be apart of this WONDERFUL community!

“Awesome little unit”
Reviewed March 7, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This unit has everything to make your stay at Lake Tahoe as pleasant and magic as possible. It's probably the biggest one bedroom unit I've ever stayed in and because of the high ceilings and the gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe you never get cabin fever - even in the thickest snow storm. We are a family of three and had a great time. The kitchen is well equipped, there is plenty of extra bedding and it's overall very tidy and clean. It's very quiet and the views of the lake are magic. We were here in winter but would definitely come back in summer to check out the pool and sauna that are part of this complex and are looking forward to enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony. The people in the office are wonderful and Gil is prompt and very attentive to all questions.

This condo met all of my expectations. It was very clean, organized, and well furnished. I felt like I was at home and had everything i needed. It was wonderful to wake up every morning and see the lake. My wife and I enjoyed this location so much that we extended our stay an extra night. The front desk and the owner were very friendly and accommodating.

“Old style Tahoe cabins, comfortable, appealing, well maintaned and managed”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Last minute booking on very busy mid-summer weekend. Natalia, the manager, was great - she accommodated us with one night in each of two cabins, and the staff moved our luggage. It wasn't inconvenient.
The property is well locate on West Shore near Tahoe City and on the highway but set just far enough back that the cabins feel "in the trees". They are old - no granite here - but charming. Towels, toiletries, etc. are comparable to an upscale hotel. Beds excellent. Small older kitchen but well equipped. The only real complaint we had is that the stall showers are really tiny. Extra TV in bedroom. Lots of extra touches. If you want modern, you may find this funky instead of charming. We liked it a lot.

This place is absolutely perfect. Tastefully furnished with all the amenities you would need. Really felt like home. Very, very clean But the view is the best part. Wonderful vantage point to see the lake from many angles. A wonderful, beautiful complex. We look forward to staying there again.
Just wish the check in time could be earlier and the check out time a little later.

“Ok”
Reviewed February 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2014

The condo was nice. I was disappointed that many of the kayaks that lined the beach were chained up and not available for us renters. The lake is beautiful and the view from the condo beautiful, but the lake is very cold, even in July. There was a pool but was often crowded with small children and one day was so dirty maintenence made everyone get out while they superchorinated it . The town is pretty and clean, food at restuarants just ok. It was an ok vacation but would not return.

The kayaks that are chained along the Lake frontage are owned by Homeowners. There are several kayak vendors in Tahoe City and Kings Beach who rent kayaks. Chinquapin is a gated family friendly complex that provides many recreational amenities that include 2 private beaches and 1 mile of private Lake frontage. The swimming pool, saunas, locker rooms, tennis courts, volley ball court and Clubhouse are consistently maintained and clean.

“Absolutely THE BEST”

This condo could not have been cleaner/nicer and so very tastefully furnished. How wonderful to be at the kitchen sink and look at that incredible view! First thing we did was have an "adult beverage" on the deck overlooking the beautiful, blue lake and gorgeous pine trees. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was so well stocked and it was nice the cleaning people left a few items in the refrigerator--that really does help. We did grill one night and always ate breakfast out on the deck. The grill worked great-as did everything else. We had a couple of hic-ups, but the management office was unbelievably quick to respond to any concerns. Getting the key at 4:45 was absolutely no problem at all. Took a nice hike the first morning and could literally find the trail "right there". We spent 6 nights and I had a difficult time leaving the place. Wonderful for 2 people (we're just a little older and don't like climbing over someone in the morning) :) It was great and highly recommend this condo. Above and beyone our expectations. My problem is -- I don't know the VRBO # and the management would not give us his name, so don't know how to find it again.
