Villa Z at Sandpoint is THE place to stay for your next family reunion, retreat or larger group.  This exceptional waterfront estate unites grand, contemporary architecture with equally stunning furnishings and art, into a 8,500 sq. ft. home on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille.  Located just 3 miles from downtown Sandpoint, Villa Z resides on nearly 3 acres of cedar and pine trees and includes:  manicured grounds, 156 feet of flat waterfront, a private sandy beach, dedicated dock with boat lift, fire pit, paddle boards, kayaks AND a hot tub.  Breathe easy with the new state-of-the-art HEPA filtration system that has been installed to remove bacteria and viruses from the air throughout the home, for added protection.

This luxuriously renovated home has 7 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen, sunken bar, pool table, including a NEW  'Z Zone' (a massive bunk & entertainment room with 3 Queens, 3 XL bunks - all with cubbies & charging ports for those tech savvy teens), and a 75” HD Smart TV — creating a zone that families, friends, kids/cousins/grandkids will all love!

Villa Z is just 17 miles from Schweitzer Mountain (the largest ski mountain in Idaho), and is less than 30 minutes drive to Silverwood Amusement & Water Park.  Located on 43 mile-long Lake Pend Oreille and being minutes from downtown Sandpoint, makes this location ideal for family reunions, luxury lake vacations, “milestone” birthdays, a special anniversary, corporate retreats, and winter skiing. 

Enjoy quiet conversations around the spectacular wave wall fireplace in the living room or watch your favorite sport or movie on a 65" TV that 'raises' out of a low profile entertainment cabinet. Celebrate that special birthday or anniversary in the gorgeous dining room. A large sunken bar replete with pony keg tap and ice machine — is perfect for evening cocktails and entertaining and the Brunswick billiards table leads to an 8 ball challenge. 

Great homes have great kitchens and Villa Z is no exception. This Epicurean kitchen will delight  the serious cook with its 4 foot long Viking range, double ovens, and warming drawers. Plentiful and gorgeous, quartz and granite counter tops provide ample work space for the sous chef and wannabes. Custom cabinetry, wood floors, full size refrigerator with full size freezer, bake ware and kitchen staples complete this incredible kitchen. An enormous “butler’s pantry”, behind the main kitchen, provides a separate area for the clean-up crew.

An expansive master suite with sitting area is located on the main floor and provides room for families with small children (crib, toddler bed and sleeper sofa).  A smaller sleeping room with Queen-sized Murphy bed, plus a private office and a "gear room" with commercial-grade boot/gear dryer, complete the first floor layout.  Take the sweeping spiral staircase up to reach 5 additional bedrooms (Midaz King, Zen Queen, Azure Queen, Gaze Queen, and Z Zone - 3 Queens, 3 Twin XLs), the stunning new observatory, and 3 full bathrooms.   All beds and bathrooms are fully appointed with luxury linens. 

Summers in Sandpoint finds everyone outside. In addition to the sprawling patio and outdoor kitchen, a variety of stylish seating, tables and chairs, plus a 100' long sandy beach with fire pit at the water's edge (*yes, we even provide the wood*) awaits you. The large flat lawn is perfect for volleyball, badminton or croquet.  Feeling the need to really explore our incredible area, where there are no paved walkways?  Check out the many hiking trails North Idaho has to offer, from easy jaunts to full-on climbs that take most of the day.  Here is a fantastic online guide to the most popular trailheads, with short descriptions about each one:

Villa Z is unique in size, design, privacy and amenities. However it is not an event venue, so please no wedding or large reception requests. In addition, absolutely **no pets** at the owners have serious & significant allergies.  CCTV exterior security cameras are in place.

**NOTE:  Each year, on September 18th OR the 3rd Sunday in September (whichever is later), the Army Corps of Engineers begins dropping the water level of Lake Pend Oreille until ultimately reducing it by a total of 10-12 feet.  Around the 4th week in September ALL boat docks and boat lifts on the lake become inaccessible and unusable, as the water completely recedes back from the shoreline leaving just bare ground beneath the docks.  The agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers states the lake level must be restored to full pool level each year no later than July 4th, however, the last 10+ years the lake water has been at full pool level around the 2nd or 3rd week in June.

Bucket list it twice because once is not enough . This home is beyond beautiful , stunning views and oh so comfortable. I have to say walking in the door I was blown away by the view and just gravitated outside, heaven, just heaven and lots of toys in heaven, boats plus a beach! I could of have camped outside . After being coaxed inside (promised a margarita). The interior is right out of a movie star magazine or set, voluminous ceilings, towering fireplace, immense gourmet kitchen . So luxurious, the living room could easily house 20 people yet it so cozy. 5 stars to the design team. The beds and linens were wonderful also. Cannot wait to return. - Jane Beyer

I had the extraordinary pleasure of spending time at Villa Z with separate sets of great friends and family twice in the last year, once in July and again in mid-February. I was beside myself thinking I couldn't make the February trip because of previous commitments, but at the last minute I was able to change some plans and in no time I was on the road between Seattle and Sandpoint. I had remembered that Villa Z was stocked with everything you could imagine, so all I needed was my clothing and a few personal items and I was off. Villa Z is only a five hour drive from Seattle and a simple and beautiful one at that. Once I was on I-90 E, getting to Villa Z was a matter of exiting the freeway in Idaho, making a left turn, and then another left turn and you are there! (Oh and by the way, if you need to get gas, do it in Idaho! It's so cheap!) When I arrived at Villa Z, it was snowing lightly. Villa Z was lit up spectacularly and looked stunning. I remember I get really get to stay at this place again? Thanks to the covered driveway and porch, I didn't even have to walk in in the snow. When I walked in to Villa Z to greet my friends who had arrived the day prior, they were relaxing after dinner amidst an expansive majestic view. Every room in Villa Z is exceptional, but the great room living area, with the massive cozy chairs, surrounding bar, entertainment, pool table, and proximity to the professional kitchen is THE place to spend time with each other. I personally didn't need any activities during my summer or winter stay outside of what Villa Z offered turnkey. Being at Villa Z is like being on luxury cruise ship where you have to make choices- do I want to leave this place for a fun excursion, or do I just want to stay here and have a perfect time with everything here already available to me? Another great thing about this place is that it is shockingly affordable off-season, and worth every penny peak season. I'm hoping to arrange another trip with some friends very soon. Thank you, Villa Z!

Just recently spent an extended weekend at Villa Z in Sandpoint, ID and let me tell you, this is the winter destination you have been looking for. The house is beautiful and completely modern with a perfect lakeshore location. There is room for your large family or group and it is definitely set up for your kids with a perfectly designed fun zone. The kitchen is set up to make ANY type of meal you can think of and the owners have pretty much thought of everything you could need for your winter or summer vacation. The location of Villa Z is also a major plus, first off you are RIGHT on the lake, minutes from downtown Sandpoint and all it has to offer, and a short drive to Schweitzer Ski Resort and the Pend Oreille river. I cant recommend this place enough, and if you want the perfect winter destination you should book now!!! -Sean S.

We had the most magical weekend in Sandpoint Idaho! We had 4 families wanting to go on a skiing trip to Schweitzer Mountain. In looking for accommodations for the group I came across some vacation rentals, the one that stood out was Villa Z. The pictures were amazing, right on the lake & just minutes from Schweitzer. Good price, room enough for all of us. Booked it. When we arrived, I couldn't believe it! Villa was more like mansion! It was so beautiful & open with spectacular views. Overflowing with large comfy sitting areas, huge dining table, great kitchen. We could all hang out together or find a quiet, cozy spot to relax. All the bedrooms were amazing. There was even a huge bunk room (The Z Zone) that was perfect for the six young kids in our group. They thought they had their own kids only fort. Very nice, very cozy. It was just perfect!! Only minutes to Schweitzer Mountain or quaint downtown Sandpoint. Let's just say I got way more than expected. Had we known it was so great we would have stayed a week rather than a weekend. And what a beautiful mountain & ski resort!! Snow, blue skies & some great pizza! Hopefully we can do it again!

I spent a long weekend at Villa Z with 3 other couples and 6 kids between the ages of 2 and 6 yr. The house was perfect for us, we even had rooms to spare. The bunkroom was perfect for the kiddos, they had a blast in there and we were able to enjoy some adult time in the main living area. The owner of this home has done some major renovations and the home is stunning. The location is amazing as well. The views of the lake and snow-covered mountains is magical. It is wonderful, peaceful, and relaxing environment. It is also an easy drive to the mountain, we spent 2 full filled days at Schweitzer teaching the kids to ski. The owner and management company are clearly detailed oriented. The linens are amazing, the beds are cozy, the house was spotless. I highly recommend this house for a winter vacation you wont be disappointed. -Sarah B.

Beautiful home. We enjoyed the gourmet kitchen with two dishwashers, the BBQ, spacious bar and outdoor jacuzzi. We were there with five other couples, and there were plenty of places to spread out and relax, as well as spaces to all be together. The beach and fire pit were very nice. Those sleeping in the bedrooms above the living space may wish to wear earplugs so as not to hear early risers, etc.

We just can't thank you all enough for your help arranging this stay and for offering this amazing property for rent! From the moment we pulled into the driveway to the moment we left, we enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The location was so close to town, yet felt secluded and private. The lake views were outstanding and were the only thing that could take our eyes off of the beautiful home itself. We enjoyed many of the amenities that were offered, like the pool table, hot tub, fireplaces, and sandy beach. The master suite was so luxurious. Waking up to the lake view with the fireplace roaring was so nice, and the heated floor in the spacious and well lit bathroom was wonderful. The hot tub with the wonderful lake view was an amazing treat in the cool fall air each night! From our first glimpse as we drove in, we were so excited to see the home was just as beautiful and luxurious as it appeared in the pictures. Then we started finding many little surprises that exceeded our expectations - board games, books, the TV entertainment system, etc. I feel like even if we had forgotten something we needed, it probably would have been supplied! The property and home were both very clean. And the sandy beach was so nice and clean; I imagine it is fun to walk barefoot in the warmer months! The amenities are really what make this property exceed expectations. There are books and board games and fireplaces to enjoy them by. The bar area was so nice, with the fresh clean ice in the ice machine and the conversation cards to enjoy in front of the large view windows. I wish we had some warmer weather during our stay, because being able to use the paddleboards or even just fish from the dock or sandy beach would be so enjoyable. Seeing all the water activity gear they had available was impressive. The oversized refrigerator and freezer are enviable! We came for a relaxing anniversary getaway, and this property helped us accomplish that. With so much to offer in this home, we were constantly finding something new to enjoy and it left us wanting more, which is always a good sign! Everyone we worked with was so friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for all your help arranging our stay and your support during our stay!

This house is absolutely beautiful. It is the perfect place to take a large group of people too. I loved the loft area with all of the bunkbeds and we plan to do something similar in one of four guest rooms. The view is amazing and we had wonderful sunsets. The hot tub was a perfect place to enjoy the view. We had an osprey as a guest on the property, which was so cool.

This stunningly beautiful property even beat our expectations as pictures cannot begin to give you the feel till you are there. We loved the stylish dcor and new furnishings and felt like we were staying in a private, elegant estate but was still warm, comfortable and friendly. The kitchen and butlers pantry were well appointed and accommodated our large group of adults and children. Everything we needed was there. The landscaping, extra, extra-large patio with outside kitchen, huge yard and expansive beach made for great entertaining. Paddleboards, kayaks, and fishing off the big dock added to the fun. The Z Zone was a surprise as it had not been built when we booked. Kids had super comfortable, oversized beds with their own cubby for charging their devices and holding books. It also had a big Smart TV so they could play games. Great for the adults, too. Evenings were spent on the beach by the fire pit enjoying smores and refreshments. We are coming back next year and highly recommend the amazing Villa Z

We stayed in this gorgeous newly remodeled home for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. We were excited for the house BEFORE we got there, but were more pleased when we showed up and the home was more open, light, and updated than the listing photos. Hope they are updated soon so you can see how TRULY LOVELY this place is - It's a stunner! There was lots of open communal space to play games and enjoy home cooked meals. The floor to ceiling glass allowed us to enjoy the sweeping views of Lake Pend Oreille and we really enjoyed the outside areas with plenty of seating, including a private beach, boat lift, and kayaks (which we did NOT use, it was pretty cold Memorial Day!). We were the first family to stay there post-remodel, there were literally workers leaving as we pulled up a few minutes early. We reaped both the benefits and pain points of the recent updates. We were the first to use the dreamy new kitchen with new appliances, towels, re-felted pool table, etc. and were happily surprised by all the updates. My sister went to culinary school and we could hardly drag her out of the open kitchen with new appliances and stunning blue granite. At the same time, there were some issues (i.e. sluggish plumbing, missing finishes, main room TV didn't work, leaking fridge install, etc.), but our host Kellee was extremely responsive and helped to the best of her ability, even coming over herself to work on the fridge. I believe most of the issues will be resolved before more guests stay there. I recommend confirming both the contact information prior to arrival as they had changed from the listing. Overall, this is a phenomenal place to stay in Northern Idaho, just a short drive from Sandpoint, and I highly recommend to anyone looking for a large vacation rental in the area! This place is family friendly complete with kids toys, a pool table, a twin bed room, and high chairs etc. The hot tub, firepit, and large outdoor bbq are a perfect touch. Perfect for 5 small families, although I heard a rumor it may be expanded to include even more beds. I recommend flying into Spokane and driving over. If we return to this location, we will definitely rent this place again

This was our second year. The second trip was every bit as good as the first. There were four families in our group and the accommodations could not be better. The back patio is the perfect spot to take in the gorgeous surroundings and the huge grass backyard made for the perfect volleyball court. The dock accommodated our two boats and two jet skis and the location could not be more ideal. We would recommend this place to anyone looking to explore the Sandpoint area. Such great memories.
