ABOUT THE AREA:
Originally named for the semi-precious red and yellow stones peppering the shoreline, today Carnelian Bay is a favorite among dogs, kayakers, SUPers and sunset seekers. Located between Tahoe City and Kings Beach, this laid back lake side town is known for great paddle boarding, and “Wet Woodys” on the deck at Gar Woods Grill & Pier. 

Patton Landing is Carnelian Bay’s three acre pebbly beach, home to Waterman’s Landing, a gourmet coffee house, and a full service café. The property offers a free, nonmotorized "car top" boat launch and stand-up paddleboard and kayak rentals are available so you can enjoy the lake without bringing your own watercraft. And bring Fido! The eastern portion of the beach and the deck of the café are dog friendly.

In the winter, you are just 15 minutes from Northstar, where you’ll enjoy access to almost 100 trails and over 3,000 skiable acres, impeccable grooming, incredible tree skiing and enough variety to challenge every level of skier. Take advantage of world class terrain parks, cross country skiing, a youth Adventure Park, and a 9000 square foot ice rink surrounded by fire pits and a rink side bar. Palisades Tahoe (formally known Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows), and Homewood are all within a 25 minute drive.

The good and the bad of The Olive Branch

Reviewed on2022-01-03 by

My family and I rented the olive branch rental from Tahoe getaways for Christmas of 2021. We were there from the 23rd to the 30th. During an end and unusual snowstorm. So first of all, the house was very comfortable in spite of the fact that we were essentially snowed in. It was warm, almost too warm and large enough that we didn’t feel like we were on top of each other. For the most part the house is very comfortable. No one complained about the bed and the bed I slept in was very comfortable. The large living room/dining room/kitchen area made for great family meals together. The loft with two full beds overlooking the living room was somewhat of a problem, though. I don’t believe that the description of the house really accurately described The absolute lack of privacy this room has and my two daughters were stuck in there. They could hear everything going on in the living room below and they spent their entire vacation with noise canceling headphones on. I wish it had been made more clear that this was the situation. Also on my list of complaints is the kitchen. While fairly large the people who own the house and/or rental company has provided no place for guests to leave their food. So we had our food all over the counters, which left very little counterspace for food prep. There are also not adequate numbers of glasses and dishes and we were constantly having to do dishes because of the shortage. There was only one small pot and so I actually had to go buy an additional part in order to make a large enough batch of soup for the whole family. They leave absolutely no essentials except for coffee filters. No salt and pepper, no nonstick spray, no oil. I also manage a vacation rental and I provide all of the kitchen basics to my guests because I know that they do not want to have to go buy salt and pepper, oil, the very basics of herbs and spices, or baking powder and baking soda. And I think it is safe to assume that most families will be doing a fair amount of cooking when renting a house like this. There was also so much snow on the deck in the back when we arrived that it made using the hot tub almost impossible. Only one snow shovel was available to us and no snow melt. There was also very little toilet paper and paper towels left for us in the house. We had to go buy our own. which I think is really weird for a rental house that costs about $1300 per night. You’d think that they would provide ample toilet paper and paper towels! I was also pretty disappointed that there were absolutely no Christmas decorations even though it was obviously a holiday get together. There were, in fact, Christmas decorations in bins in the garage and so I’m not sure why none of them were put out for our stay. Again, with my vacation rental, I’ll ask the guests coming in over Christmas if they want it decorated. They always do! And so I make that extra effort for them and make the house is very festive for holiday gatherings. So it is definitely a mixed review! In some ways it was very comfortable and perfect for our family but in other ways I felt that it is poorly managed and the comfort and care of guests is highly overlooked. Also, on my first night there I emailed Tahoe getaways and asked if they had any other pots or possibly a crockpot that I could borrow and they never responded.


Manager Response:

We really appreciate your detailed review and will do our best to address your concerns for the next renters. The one item that I do want to address so that future renters are clear, we do not supply basic kitchen condiments. Occasionally, these items will be left by previous renters but it is not something we stock or supply for guests. Toilet paper and paper towels are only stocked with a starting supply in the home.

Thought the house was very nice and we would plan to stay there several times a year as our boat is in the water nearby. But the internet was terrible and made it almost impossible to work remotely. If you get upgraded please let us know and we will stay again for sure. Also, the jets in the hot tub did not work.


Manager Response:

Thank you for reviewing Olive Branch. We have to agree that is should be easier to have reliable internet, however in these rural areas, we really have only one provider to pick from. Wireless internet and cell service can be slower than what our guests may be used to in the city no matter what home you rent. Cell service is fairly good in the area and guests are welcome to bring their own hot spots.

We truly enjoyed our 10 days at Olive Branch. We received excellent communication and the house was clean and had everything we needed. We loved the layout of the house, I especially enjoyed the private office area. We only had one issue, the snow removal service was a bit slow to respond, but the property manager kept us informed and it wasn't a big issue. If we go back to North Lake Tahoe, this property will be at the top of our list.

The place was very well furnished and comfortable. It was as expected. The only change I would consider an improvement would be to convert the couch in the stairwell into a sofa/sleeper or futon for kids to use when there is a larger group. The kitchen was very well set up with good pots to use. We enjoyed cooking dinner together. A few more cups and glasses would be useful. Enjoyed our stay and liked the house. In the future, please consider sending the check out instructions with the check in instructions. Some of us left earlier and we ended up stripping the beds etc as we usually do but it would have been good to know the rules earlier to distribute the work to the groups leaving earlier. Cheers, Joya


Manager Response:

We're happy to hear you enjoyed your time at Olive Branch! As always we appreciate your feedback and I will supply it to our supervisory team regarding both items. We look forward to hosting you again in the future at this home or any other one we manage.

This was our second time staying at Olive Branch. It is a comfortable home with enough room for friends/family to have a little privacy. Great kitchen/living/dining area where everyone can gather! Fully fenced yard means your pet is safe! We look forward to coming back next year.


Summer Starts at Olive Branch

We really enjoyed kicking off summer at Olive Branch. It is a large and comfortable home with plenty of room for all. The pluses included: well equipped kitchen with nice appliances (we love to cook!), a fenced in back yard that the kids loved to go on “adventures” in, and great lay out for every one to have some room. This home was also spectacularly clean on arrival. Although not a deal breaker keep in mind the following: you enter the mud room/entry landing and need to climb a flight of stairs to get to the main level (kitchen, master bedroom, etc.) this was difficult for one in our party with physical limitations. Also there is no AC at this house, it was a warm weekend and even with the windows open the upstairs bedrooms were pretty warm and had no fans. On the whole would definitely would come back!


Manager Response:

Thank you for your thorough review. We think future renters will find this information helpful. We have updated the listing with a full walking "virtual" tour for future renters to get the full scope of the home's layout. Also, like many homes in the Tahoe area, it is correct that this home doesn't come equipped with A/C. However night temperatures cool down to the 40's usually and we do provide fans for each bedroom. We are always happy to provide tips on keeping this home temperate and comfortable!

We decided to rent this property over Memorial Day weekend because the space looked beautiful online. The home is just lovely and located across the street, one block up from the lake. So conveniently to shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities. The space was perfect for 3 adults and 2 children. Loved the decor and the wood throughout. Had all the amenities that anyone could need. The property management company was wonderful. Jenn and Taylor were both so gracious when we had a personal travel delay. I can’t say enough about how great our family vacation was and we look forwarding to staying at Olive Branch again.

We found the master bedroom downstairs to be uncomfortable with the mattress having a plastic cover under the fitted sheet. Caused sheet to slide. The bathroom shower drain fills up immediately with water and the floors freezing with only 2 small throw rugs. The patio was not usable as the table very old and dirty. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. Seems as though this would be perfect for a house full of children. Also the upstairs master (only other room used) had no holders in the shower for soap or shampoo. Odd.


Manager Response:

Thanks for taking the time to review your experience! This comes as a surprise as this is the first we've heard about the home not being comfortable-- but it is difficult to please each and everyone's tastes, I guess. Regardless, we can assure future renters that the shower drains shouldn't be a problem moving forward and we have just done a thorough inspection of the property. Items in this home are of quality and looking great.

Olive Branch is a lovely pet friendly vacation rental. Very spacious and well equipped and decorated. Was very impressed for being a pet friendly rental, it's not stinky, musky or run down at all. A short walk to the lake and a couple a great restaurants. I wish they had a little more patio furniture to enjoy the fabulous decks and patio but all and all would highly recommend Olive Branch!

Worth every penny. The cabin was hotel style clean and well appointed. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen, saving money on restaurants. (Plus it's much healthier!) The house itself is well thought out - with an entry way to remove snow boots and gear before accessing the main floor. The beds were very comfy (I brought my own pillow) and the living/dining/family room was open and perfect for playing games, reading and watching movies. We spent a day at Squaw and came back to soak in the sparkling clean hot tub. It was heavenly! We brought our 2 golden retrievers and discovered an awesome hiking trail up the road, which we hiked twice a day. Everything about our stay was perfect and we will definitely be coming back in the summer.

We have been doing winter holiday vacation rentals in Tahoe for about a dozen years now. This year we decided to pay up a bit more in the hopes of getting a house that really was fun to be at...and we hit the jackpot!
This was truly a great house for our family of two adults, two young teens, and two dogs. And we had some friends of ours join us for a few days, and they were also two adults and two teens.
The house itself was very spacious, and sleeping arrangements were great. In addition with three tvs spread out around the house...and a steady and strong wifi signal throughout...there was no problem having us all in the main room or having the kids spread out and doing their own thing.
The kitchen was great: it had nice cutting boards, great steak knives (a full set!), and a full range of new pots, pans and cooking accessories. Plenty of glassware, flatware and plates and we were able to have a really great New year's eve dinner with all 8 of us at the same table.
The location was super...really just a 2-3 block or so walk to get to the 7 eleven, or the lake, or the Garwoods restaurant.
We skied at Northstar, and it was less than 12 miles door to door; a map showed us that it would have been the sane to get to Homewood, and just a tad further to Squaw. One evening the kids all went to the movie theatre in Incline village to see the new Star wars movie...maybe 5-6 miles each way, that was all...such an easy ride!
Topping it out was the yard...we needed a fully fenced yard for our dogs, and this was really a great yard, very large, right out the door from the kitchen.
We loved this house for our vacation and we will def be back again!!

We were two couples in our thirties, a one year old toddler, and a 5 year old chocolate lab. And safe to say that everyone had an incredible time. The location is excellent (2 minute walk to Gar Woods and the lake, easy drive to Kings Beach and Tahoe City). And the house was in fantastic condition. The only comments, and I don't want to call these complaints as it really wasn't a big deal: the wifi/internet in the house was terrible. Personally, I don't think this should ever be a deal breaker for a mountain vacation, but just something to keep in mind. Would highly recommend this vacation rental!

This home was in a great location in Carnelian Bay - About 3 blocks from the lake (public beach), Gar Woods restaurant (excellent), and water sports rentals. The house is roomy and comfortable with a great layout and nice kitchen but could use a little TLC (no icemaker or ice trays, some toilets need attention (water running constantly), and towels a little dingy (although there were plenty). Note that this home is managed by a rental agency, not the owners.

I have stayed at this property for 3 years and the maintenance has been minimal. Carpets are stained, kitchen has no room for storage due to owner locking so many draws and pantry. Pots and pans are very old and not ample for 10 people. Deck and chairs are worn and need refinishing or replaced. Had to clean bugs from windows. Garage door opener has to be repaired. Screens are worn and slider screens have holes. Screen is missing from one bedroom and this is a safety hazard. We decided not to stay here again unless things change.

Great home close to the water. You can tell the homeowners really did a great job decorating the place. Tahoe Getaways was pleasant to work with.
We had plenty of space and a fully stocked kitchen. The PM company said they inspect properties before turning them over to the renter. Our property had an issue with the hot tub with the water being old and green and had to be changed, chlorinated and heated. Unfortunately, we didn't get the opportunity to use it because the water wasn't ready until 10pm the night before we departed. Also, there was long hair stuck to the shower tile wall. We hope Tahoe Getaways seeks the opportunity to inspect their properties a bit more closely in the future.

Loved the rustic yet luxe decor, well-appointed with most everything you'd need. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the open concept kitchen, the outdoor hot tub, and very comfortable beds. Had a wonderful time and would love to return again. Our only issue was that the driveway was very icy and steep, even with chain tires we spent nearly 3 Hours trying to park our car. We received some additional assistance when someone from Tahoe Getaways got us a new shovel, some ice melt and helped break up some of the ice to create more traction.

Delightful house, great location, would definitely stay here again Some issues should be noted--in master bath sink and shower fixtures loose or not easily used. I have stayed in many rentals over the years and this was by far lacking even the basic salt/pepper, olive oil, sugar, etc. Don't expect food to be provided but this was like a model home lacking any basics of habitation. Having such in one cupboard with a note or something would be a nice touch. Finally, the huge pine tree across the narrow street comes up on a driver backing up very fast....maybe more reflectors?

Nice property. Good location. Clean and nice backyard for our dog. There were a couple basic things missing that most rentals provide. Salt and pepper, olive oil, more wine glasses, and this year with the yellow jackets in full force everywhere on the lake they should empty and re-fill the fluid for the traps with every rental. We did it on our own and it made a huge difference.

Example: faucet in wet sink needs replacing, chairs on front deck are unusable due to wear, screens on sliders are torn at the bottom letting in bugs, top of the faucet in main sink in kitchen is melted and carpets are getting very dirty. The kitchen could use more dishes and better pots and pans. We had to bring extra supplies or we would be washing a lot. Other than these items we enjoyed our stay and would most likely stay there again.

Many years my family enjoyed summer vacations in carnelian Bay Area. We then switched to the very crowded west shore. We returned to carnelian this year and gloried in the many qualities of this area. Olive Branch rental price is a superior choice than a gated west shore community. The home itself is just as advertised. It is/was lovely with more space than a condo. My grandsons enjoyed lots of golf at magic castle and old brockway. The front and back decks offer sun or shade. Management responded immediately to a very minor issue. Patton beach is filled with dogs and their owners--- an easy walk unless loaded down with umbrellas and beach chairs. Property very clean with all amenities. Love. Loved our stay there.

This place is absolutely amazing and everything you will need for up to 10 people! I went with a group of 8 people: 3 couples got their own bedroom and two individuals got their own bed so everything worked out perfectly. It's in Carnelian Bay, and a 5 minute walk to the lake, nice restaurant on the lake, mini golf, 7/11 store. It's also a 10 minute drive from Safeway and about 10 minute drive from a state park, where you can walk up and see a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe.


The house had a fenced yard so it was perfect for our dogs. (Each dog got charged $50 for their stay). This house was beautiful, well kept, and had everything. My only complaint was that the internet was not working :( But overall, we didn't need wifi because all of our phones had internet and most of us were too busy having fun to be on our phones anyways. I would highly recommend this place and location for anyone looking for a nice quiet trip in Tahoe.

Only complaint is that for a house that can occupy 10, there is only dinner serviceware for 8 and chairs for 9. Owners can easily turn this house into a full 5 star house with some very small additions. On the plus side, there were plenty of wine glasses. :)

From the very first moment we stepped in side we knew it perfect. It matched the description perfectly, the rooms, the decor, the furnishing, the layout...just as described.

This property was in a good location, close to King's Beach and Tahoe City. It was modern inside and rustic looking outside. There was plenty of privacy. A beach was within walking distance as well as a 7-11 and mini golf.

Beautiful Cabin!

Beautiful, spacious, cabin perfect for families. Plenty of space for our group of 9 with kids ranging in age from 7-17. The backyard is fenced (which isn't always the case in Tahoe) so it was easy to contain the troop during our annual snowball fight and snow fort building. The hot tub was great and there's a BBQ grill outside, as well. The home has nice touches, like white lights strung around the deck, that just make it special. I would choose this home over others I've stayed in time and time again. It's right between Kings Beach and Tahoe City, so you can choose to head one way to go to Northstar or the other way to head towards Alpine/Squaw. Nice location!

Stayed with extended family and had enough space for everyone. House is in great shape, exactly as presented with high end finishes. Really enjoyed the hot tub and it was great to have a covered two car garage.

This is a beautiful house with lots of room and it is well taken care of. We really enjoyed the hot tub and feeding the chipmunks. It was a nice convenience that we were able to use the garage with a garage door opener. We found the location of the house was ideal for getting to lots of activities around the lake. We had a wonderful stay.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very clean and spacious. It was built in 2006 so most things looked pretty good. It has a big garage too, if you are so inclined to use it. We were with our 2 adult daughters and one boyfriend also. We did not use the loft bedroom, but I think its a good spot for children to sleep, adults would have no privacy. The beds were pretty comfy and the bathrooms were ok, we had some minor issues in the beginning and the maintenance was handled very promptly and satisfactorily (and this was Christmas week, we were impressed). The kitchen desperately needs a new toaster and some better pots and pans. We took a sharp knife from home with us which we needed. We bought a griddle while we were there and left it as there was nothing to fry eggs on. But there was pretty much everything else one needs in a kitchen though we never did find the cutting board. There's no cocktail shaker or martini glasses wine glasses are limited if you are fussy. There were napkins,matches & ziplocks; also extension cords and toilet plungers (3 at least!) in the laundry room under the sink in the back, and some basic tools in there too I think. We enjoyed the fireplace but it made a constant hum, very annoying when things were quiet. We felt the shower in the master bedroom downstairs needed a new shower head and I think my daughter said the same for the ensuite upstairs too. That is a very minor detail though. There were a lot of towels and the laundry room was awesome to have. The hot tub was great, we did attempt to use the grill but could not get it to light and just gave up. We walked to Gar Woods several nights and enjoyed good cocktails there and I would recommend their mussels among other things. They were sooo good! Drove to Spindleshanks one night and we were all like "Meh." about that place. The entire experience at the Olive Branch was a positive one and we would definitely recommend this house to anyone. We would stay there again.
