We stayed here last year and have been reminiscing about what a lovely stay we had. This condo has everything one needs to feel like being home away from home. The Chinquapin property where this unit is located is ideally located in a very private location on the Lake, yet conveniently off a main road just minutes from downtown Tahoe City village.
The unit itself has one bedroom, two full bathrooms, a spacious kitchen and living room and a very nice deck with sliding doors. We loved the gas fireplace in the living room, and the kitchen had everything we needed and beyond to cook meals in the evening. We would definitely stay again.
Great apartment, well equipped and maintained in a beautiful complex and an absolutely fantastic view of the lake and a super deck. We found lots of really great restaurants close by and had a great time. Only wish there were some grab bars in the showers.
We had a 3 week vacation, staying at 6 different locations. All were enjoyable, but the time we spent at Lake Tahoe at the end of our trip was the most special of all, and this was largely because of the Condo where we stayed. We knew it would be nice, but it exceeded our expectations in so many ways. It was well equipped, clean, comfortable, quiet, and of course, a great view. This was to be a one time trip but it was so nice, we might just need to find a way to go back!
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!
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.

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.
