About Andy and Amber Finch
Andy and I have been married over 10 years, we now have a new awesome little addition, Amiya Joy who is 4 months young and her older brother Asher Josiah who is 3. We also have a mini aussie, Indy who was our first child and is still dearly loved. We enjoy traveling, some for pleasure, some for work, but we are gone enough to rent out our house, though Truckee will always be our home base. Andy used to compete in snowboarding halfpipe, he went to the 2006 olympics! He now does odds and ends jobs, rental management, construction, commentating at ski and snowboard events, guest coaching, motivational speaking, whatever! I am a full time mom, but also do commissioned artwork, work with a whole foods company, teach some cooking classes and teach spin and yoga classes. We are both very involved in our church and community. Our favorite activities to enjoy together are mountain biking and paddleboarding. Andy also loves surfing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, skateboarding. I love cross country skiing, running, horseback riding, cooking, and road biking. Our little man has already snowboarded, paddleboarded, skateboarded, haha, he is going to be extreme like his parents! We love hosting guests and activities at our house and have the perfect home for it, and that is why we know you will love it too!
Andy and Amber Finch purchased this House in 2003
Why Andy and Amber Finch chose Olympic Heights
As a professional snowboarder Andy had always wanted to live and train in the Lake Tahoe area (he grew up in Fresno, CA). He lived at home in order to save enough to buy this home in Truckee 13 yrs ago. I grew up in Colorado and ended up at school in southern california, i wanted to get back to the mountains and ended up in Truckee, we both love it here and will always have it as our home.
What makes this House unique
Andy loved how open the house is, and the floor plan is an awesome unique layout, with the fire stove running from the bottom floor to the top, so heating is very efficient. There is also a big flat driveway which is pretty essential in the winter time. There are great views and the spacious lot makes it feel like you are truly in the mountains. The location is ideal for Truckee being close to town, the river, Old Greenwood golf course, Ski resorts and getting more sun than any other area in town (we are in the sunbelt).

From hosts to house, five stars all the way!
Thank you, Andy and Amber, we had a wonderful time!!
Great house & location. Andy was super hospitable and had genuine concern for making sure we had everything we needed and that we were comfortable. I hope to come back to enjoy the house next winter.
Erin and her family were great guests! they had good communication, were very respectful to the house and house rules, they left the place very clean! thanks for choosing our place to stay!
Fantastic home - easy access to everything!
How does one really review a perfect place, wonderful owners, great access to everything? With 5-stars, of course! Would give more if we could. Andy and Amber were absolutely wonderful hosts, even checking in with us when a big storm was approaching to offer assistance if needed. The highlights of the home for us included lots of living space, great dining area, steam shower (ahhhhhh), hot tub on the deck, comfy beds, and privacy. The location of the home in Truckee meant easy access to every ski resort we love (we went to a different one each day!), a short drive to Safeway and wonderful restaurants in downtown Truckee. If you're looking for a great place in the area, we wholeheartedly recommend this great home that has really delightful owner/hosts.
Elizabeth and her family were great guests! They were very easy to communicate and work with! Having rented our house for a week over New Years, I’m always a little nervous about what condition the home will be in. But when we arrived, it was literally like no one had stayed here! They left everything nice and tidy! We would host them again in a heartbeat!
Great Family Vacation Destination!
Thanks Andy for the great place. The house had everything, and more, for the entire family to enjoy themselves. The first snow fall of this season was a nice touch too! Perfect way to kick off the Holiday's.
Super Fun Weekend!!!
Thank you, Andy and Amber! The home was welcoming and spacious for our two families during our stay. The kids all enjoyed exploring the outside yard area (that bear!!), the ping pong table, and especially the pump track!!! :) We were in Truckee for a 3-day lacrosse tournament so it was nice to come back and soak in the hot tub at the end of a busy day. Our favorite part was relaxing on the gorgeous patio and taking in the views of Martis!! Fully stocked cook's kitchen and BBQ made mealtime a breeze. Whatever we needed, Andy was quick to respond. Such a beautiful home with a really great vibe!!! :)
Great vacation for ski week.
Thanks to Andy and Amber for the wonderful week off of school. The house is beautiful and the hot tub on the deck is the icing on the cake after a long day out in the snow. House is very clean and kitchen is well stocked. Great for kids as there are toys, puzzles, and books already there. Like previous reviews, the attentiveness of Andy is above and beyond; he even texted to ask us if we needed snow removal after a storm came through but luckily, we didn't. House is close to downtown Truckee and Donner Skihill (which is great for kids) and 25 minutes from Squaw Valley. Would definitely stay here again!
sandie and her family were the perfect guests! Great communicators and they left the house super clean, could barely tell anyone was there! We would Gladly host them again!
