A wonderful cabin very close to Squaw Village. We spend New Years weekend for a family get away and really loved the house. The house is in wonderful shape, clean, well maintained (unlike some other Tahoe homes), and we really enjoyed the decor. The radiant heat was a big plus too! The host was very responsive and helped with a couple of minor issues very quickly.

We spent a magical white Christmas at the cabin. The house is absolutely amazing, and is even more beautiful than the photos! The cabin has a wonderful feel, style and vibe to it. We are all from Scandinavia and the cabin felt like home to us. Not only is the entire cabin made from beautiful wood, but the lighting is incredible, which is very important to us Danes! Every single light throughout the house is on dimmers. Meaning you can set the mood, exactly as you want it, in every room. The kitchen is small, but well equiped. The location is fantastic. A 2 min drive to Olympic valley. We shall definitely return.

The place is really spacious, nice and clean. It's right next to the squaw valley resort (3min driving). The price is a bit expensive but it's worth given the location, and it's still cheaper than Squaw Village. Susan is very responsive in our correspondences.

I love Squaw Valley and the beautiful North Shore of Kauai. Two worlds so different from one another and so dear to me.

Why Squaw Valley? I love the people, the mountains, the Lake and all the activities you can choose to do. While there, I can never decide, which season and what activity I like best. The winters here are beautiful. Blue skies, deep snow and awesome skiing! Spring is gorgeous. You can still ski on the top of the mountain or go hiking or golfing in the lower elevations. You can begin your day on the slopes and hike the trails in the afternoon.
Summer in Tahoe is marvelous, filled with never-ending outdoors activities like running, hiking, biking, rafting, boating… it doesn't end there... or just reading in the hammock under the pines… Fall makes me nostalgic about the Tahoe summer gone by. The nights get crisper the mountain air smells of pine and the sunsets are beautiful and dramatic. During the day we take bike rides or long hikes and in the evening we sit around the fireplace and enjoy the company of our friends.

And why do I love Kauai? There is something special about how the air seems to embrace me when I first step off the plane, my clock-speed instantly slows and I am ready to sit back and enjoy what ever presents itself. The changing colors of the ocean, the rich tropical foliage, the scent of flowers in the air, the sky that meets the horizon, the awe-inspiring NaPali Range, the sound of the surf and the super bright stars of the Milky Way. On Kauai, I feel one with nature, far removed from mainland stresses and needs. Every morning I watch how the sun rises from below the horizon out of the water, I snorkel with the turtles in front of the cottages and walk the beach for hours. After two or three days on the island I feel a transformation inside of me. Walking the beach clears my head and streamlines my thoughts. Sometimes, my heart skips a beat, because Kauai is so beautiful! At that moment, the world seems perfectly in balance.

When we are not in Squaw or on Kauai, we love to travel and explore new and exciting places. Most of all, I like to connect with people and stay where the locals are. Airbnb has become my favorite mode of travel and I am happy to share our Homes with like minded travelers, who like to explore and not leave a trace behind.
