|I stayted at this condo in Truckee, for three nights during the Fourth of July weekend. I found the condo to be in very good conditions, very comfortable, very clean, very neat and very cute. One of my friends slept on the EZ Bed and found it very comfortable and easy to set up. We made omelettes and found it very convenient that there were cooking utensils and salt and pepper, among other things.
The condo is very close to Donner Lake and other hiking trails, Kings Beach and even Tahoe City.
I would definitely go back to Truckee/Tahoe and will definitely stay at this place again.
Trudy made sure everything was in place for my and my friends, she provided me with great service.
Thank you, Trudy and Mark!!! Aloha!Carmen

|The condo was great. The kitchen is very equipped. Internet, TV and the best ski resorts (Squaw, Northstar) around the corner.Dave, Rothenburg|
|Thank you Trudy, this is a lovely place you have! Condo is very cozy, clean and well organized. Bed is very comfortable (even my husband noticed that!). It also has very convenient location: walk to the lifts, short drive to the restaurants and great views. Kids had lots of fun skiing as well as playing ping pong at Tahoe Donner club. We all enjoyed our short vacation and definitely will come back next winter. Thank you Trudy!|

|Had a wonderful stay at Trudy's condo in Truckee. When you walk in you can feel the positive energy that she has put into this place. In addition to being impeccably clean, the place is decorated with taste you typically get from interior designers. A rare gem in vacation rentals. Good vibrations!|

"A peaceful Kaua'i retreat for family" "We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. We were traveling with our daughter, my sister and my parents, and found the space more than met our needs. It was a welcome, quiet retreat after coming off of the busy part of our vacation on the Big Isle. We fell in love with Kauai, due in no small part to this restful place on the north shore. The Vella home has everything you need (one of our best meals was fresh fish my husband grilled on the lanai, purchased up the road at the Dolphin Fish Market). The other amenities. (One morning we paired off to do some various planned activities separately -- golf, botanical gardens, zipline tour -- and were within just a few miles of each other and
the house. Easy and fun! Everyone said it was the best' day.) Trudy was great host with quick followup communication, and offers an affordable rate plan. The home was beautifully cleaned at our arrival and very nicely maintained throughout ... the Koa wood floors are something to marvel! Enjoy your stay without hesitation."

What a great house! We were in Hawaii celebrating my husband's 50th birthday with our 4 kids. There was PLENTY of room for all of us. We really enjoyed th house and it's great location. Every day we packed up in the morning and went to a different beach. Each one was a little different. The neighborhood was great to walk and run in each morning. We will be back!

Thank you for the use of your fabulous home for our family vacation! We found everything in perfect condition and loved the time we spent there. We were close to everything we needed, as far as beaches, food, and activities. Even the things that were further away weren't a far drive. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful. The house had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay there. We can't thank you enough for opening your home up and allowing us to stay there. Being in such a gorgeous, peaceful home made our vacation THE BEST!

Words cannot describe how remarkable this Kauai home is. Celebrated my wife's b-day at this awesome home and we could not have had a better vacation. We really did re-discover the true HAWAII on this trip. Tons of amenities made us feel at home. Comfy, Roomy, and VERY relaxing. We will be back to this vacation home. Mahalo to thr Vellas!!
Travis R., Honolulu, Hawaii
Our family truly enjoyed our stay at your vacation rental in Kauai. Your home is very comfortable and clean. We especially enjoyed the short walk to Anini Beach. We liked the location so much, we never drove more than ten miles from the house to enjoy all of the beautiful northshore beaches where we swam, snorkeled, hiked, and experienced much more!! We would definitely stay there next time we visit. Thanks.

Trudy's house was amazing - beautiful and well-equipped. The spacious and well-stocked kitchen was our favorite part.

What a beautiful home! Thank-you to Trudy and her family for our stay in February 2009. The home was truly amazing! The high ceiling plantation style was inviting and warm. Very clean and roomy. There was everything in the house that we needed.Decorated with a touch of hawaii. What beautiful views of the mountains. We loved the lanai and had many barbeques! What a wonderful neighborhood. Very quiet and well kept areas with beautiful homes throughout. We will surely return on our next Hawaiian vacation! Trudy, thank-you for all your assistance to make our vacation dream come true!

All of the comment that I made last year remain the same. The home is lovely and Trudy remains every bit as accommodating. This is our second Christmas and I believe we will make for a third.The island is truely a garden paradise

This is a great home and location. We were there with our 1 year-old and another couple with a 1-year old in October of 2007 and had a great time. Kid-friendly home and area with one of my favorite beaches on Kauai just a few miles away. We would want to stay there again on our next vacation!

Trudy is not kidding when she says this home has the "wow" factor. Her decorating is stunning yet comfortable, it has all the amenities you could possibly need, the location is very central in Princeville, yet the neighborhood is very peaceful. We have been back twice now to rent this home and highly recommend it.
Tina Peterson, Issaquah, Washington
My husband and I rented this property for a week in November 2007. We have previously visited all the other Hawaiian Islands but this was our first visit to Kauai. This house was absolutely beautiful and met all of our needs. The setting is very quiet and the Princeville location is just fantastic. We will definitely return and try to rent this house again. We highly recommend this rental and the Island of Kauai has become our favorite Hawaiian Island.

This house was amazing. It is beautifully designed and decorated with an open feeling, fitting of the island. It is very spacious but still wonderful for two to occupy. I would love for my regular home to be just like this one. We stayed for 5 nights and wished that we could have stayed longer. The location is great, offering easy drives to many beaches, hiking, shopping, dining and friendly neighbors. This was my first visit to Kauai and couldn't have asked for better accomodations. I would highly recommend this home if you are visiting Kauai.
My husband, 2 1/2-year old daughter and I stayed at this house for three nights and really enjoyed it -- we were sorry we had to leave so soon.
The beds were extremely comfortable. The house is beautifully appointed and well-stocked, with everything we needed for cooking and the beach. There were even toys and dishes for our little one.
The neighborhood was very quiet and convenient to everything. There was a house being built next door but the workers were working inside, and we did not hear them at all.
Thanks for sharing your lovely house with us.

This Princeville home is lovely, well kept and has all
the amenities to make a vacation a pleasure. The neighborhood is quiet, quite beautiful and very conveniently located. Our family had a wonderful
relaxing stay. Trudy has been a pleasure to deal
with, she was prompt, courteous and very accommodating. We will surely visit again
Jack Knight, British Columbia
We absolutely were please with the home,neighborhood,and the SITES. We will never stay in a hotel after the experience of renting a home. For a family with small children, the luxury of all conviences of home and more, made our vacation soo relaxing and truely enjoyable. Such a wonderful home with a wonderful atmosphere.
McKinnney Family, New Mexico
This vacation rental house is beautiful. We found everything as described in the information. Great rental if you are coming to Kauai. If it is available when we return later in the year, we will try to rent it.
