“We absolutely loved swapping with Josh and Jocelyn! Their home is lovely, comfortable, and spacious, with great internet (which was helpful for working from home!) and in a fantastic Truckee location. They were communicative, kind, and helpful. We feel very lucky to have found them, and are super excited to swap again sometime in the future. Thank you!!”
Joshua's reviewsAs a host (5)
“Joshua and Jocelyn are lovely hosts and made our trip so easy. They were easy to communicate with and were very organized. Their house is beautiful with plenty of room for a family. Location could not be better close to several local ski resorts like Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Donner Ski Ranch and North Star. Also Truckee main town with great restaurants. We spent New Year's at their home and had a wonderful time. We hope to be back in the future., thanks so much for hosting us. ”
“We love staying at Joshua and Jocelyn's beautiful home. This is our third time staying here and it really feel does feel like a home away from home! Joshua and Jocelyn go out of their way to help you and make the house so welcoming. Joshua will answer any questions you have. It is always really clean and tidy. It has everything you need and the kitchen is always fully stocked. It is such a big house, with 4 rooms but there is a blow up bed in the office so it is really like a five bedroom house, with two TV lounge areas. We usually ski Northstar when we stay here but you could go to any of the the North Tahoe ski resorts like Squaw or Alpine etc. I would highly recommend this house, we especially love the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom with huge jacuzzi bathtub.”
“We had a fantastic time in Truckee. Josh's home was welcoming, comfortable and spacious. All the amenities of a well-furnished home which includes great beds for sleeping after a full day out! He was also a wonderful host, available to communicate whenever needed. We've been visiting Tahoe for over 10 years and this was our first time in this particular neighborhood. Full of local residents with adorable dogs and friendly neighbors. Very easy and direct drive to town or to Rte 80, the major highway. Great location for skiing @ Northstar. ”
“We had a fantastic stay in Joshua's house. It is so spacious and everything well laid out. This is really like a 5 bedroom house as we used the office with Joshua's large double blow up bed. This way two of our boys each had their own room, with their own bathroom and hang out/TV area downstairs and that still left three bedrooms upstairs. My husband and I loved the big bath and bathroom in the master suite. Joshua was really helpful and easy to work with. It is close to everything, we skied in Northstar mainly but it is close to other ski resorts also. We would love to stay again in this beautiful home. ”
Where is it?
Located approximately 6 miles northeast of downtown Truckee, Glenshire/Devonshire is a peaceful and secluded community that many locals call home. Nestled among alpine peaks and surrounding a tiny lake, where you’ll often find ice skaters in winter, this friendly neighborhood of fewer than 1500 homes is truly welcoming. Offering a family friendly mountain environment, with quiet streets and a lower snow load than elsewhere in Truckee, where kids play outdoors year round, and bike about the neighborhood’s gentle terrain.
The public lands surrounding Glenshire offer endless recreation opportunities: mountain biking and hiking in summer, and cross country skiing in winter, plus easy access to Boca Reservoir and Stampede Reservoir for fishing, camping, boating, and water-skiing. World famous ski resorts including Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows (http://squawalpine.com/) and Northstar (https://www.northstarcalifornia.com/) are within one half hour drive.
