We arrived to find a beautiful, clean and spacious house as described. The furniture was modern and looked new. Kitchen appliances were new and functions well. The bedrooms were big and fitted all 10 of us (2 families with 6 kids) easily. The arrangement was almost spa like which makes us feel the money was well spent. What was most important was that my wife approves of this home. :-)
The kitchen was also fully furnished and it was great as my wife cooked every night. Plates and utensil were new and we appreciated that. We have rented 6 homes so far and this is certainly at the top of our list in the south bay.
We went out most days so we did not have an opportunity to enjoy the back yard but the kids had a lot of fun in the hot tub in the evening after a long day of biking and hiking. We really appreciated the fence for privacy.
Location wise, the home is close enough to all the places (within 10 minutes) that we need to visit like the Lake or the supermarket and restaurants since anything more than a 5 minutes walk, we would take our car any way.
We will definitely be back here for our next break from work and I look forward to coming here instead of going to a hotel where we can't really cook and cost just as much. To each his own I guess. This is a great value and would recommend to anyone visiting south lake Tahoe.
