Martis Camp-176

Featured in Marin Magazine, Oct 2011
Dan and Kathleen Toney vacationed at Tahoe for years, but when they discovered Martis Camp, a forested 2,200-acre planned luxury community between Truckee and North Lake Tahoe, they found their home away from home - and, to Dan's infinite glee, it's right at the far end of the golf practice area.

"I can put on some steaks, hit some golf balls, come back and flip the steaks," Dan says with a grin. "It's really turned out to be one of the most desirable lots, and the house is beautiful."

Charmed by the setting and impressed with the amenities, these San Rafael residents purchased their Tahoe lot in 2008. The couple chose Kurt Reinkens of MWA, Inc. to design the Maple Forest Cottage style home featuring four bedrooms, a 1,200-bottle wine cellar and separate guest quarters. Gray Construction built the cottage, and Lila Friday & Associates - a Marin firm with whom the Toneys have worked previously - designed the interior. "We couldn't have done it without Lila," Kathleen says. read full article

We had such a terrific experience with Kristi at MWA. Honestly, we can't say enough about her friendly personality, attention to detail and pride in her work. We saw MWA's advertisement in a magazine and simply called to make an appointment. Kristi came to our home for a casual interview and from there suggested a few builders that we might consider in the Tahoe Area. Kristi led us to our awesome builder, Heller Construction and from there it was cake. What began as a small remodel turned into a full on renovation down to the foundation. Kristi rolls with the punches and has an awesome team of engineers and office staff to make it all look seamless. Let me assure you, she's just the gal you want representing your project when the going gets tough! On time, on budget...happy clients that are forever grateful.
