Solid affordable choice for ski vacation condo
Submitted: March 12, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
Clean, well stocked, good location. Owner is helpful and responds quickly. Two bathrooms are key when on ski trip! Good water pressure, nice upgraded bathrooms, kitchen is well stocked, living room is comfortable, and big enough for everyone to relax in. Don't be fooled by the outside of the buildings, the area seems a little ghetto but that is how most of south lake looks. Inside is nice. It's not fancy but fits all your needs. Price is right!! The hot tub was was super foamy, like a bubble bath, when we were there(not sure if some kids soaped it or if they forgot the anti foam) so I can't comment on it. Wifi is slow but useable, don't plan on streaming Netflix or pandora etc. but fine for checking the ski reports weather etc. was nice to have a tv in master bedroom. Plenty of Linens and towels and extra blankets. Walls are thin, bring earplugs if u have a snorer in your group!
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Teenagers,
Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive comments on our condo. We are up twice a year to restock and clean and we think all of our upgrades have many guests coming back for future stays. Our upgrades for 2013 will include redoing our fireplace stone and moving our 46" HDTV above the new fireplace mantel. We are also replacing our sofa with a new queen sleeper and comfortable love seat.
We have this to say on your remarks about South Lake Tahoe,
being a "little ghetto". We love riding our bikes all over the south shore in the summer. The area varies, as some homes were built before the city enforced building codes. We think the city of SLT has a wonderful collection of log homes and updated vacation homes.
On our way to Pope Beach during warm summer months we have never considered the South Shore to be a "little ghetto". I guess it depends on where you ride. You can ride from friendly Bavarian Village, through Meadow Woods, and then west through the Tahoe Keys with it's million dollar homes and their own boat docks. You will find more apartment buildings the closer you get to the casinos.
We think South Lake Tahoe and Bavarian Village, with it's central location, offers all the comforts of home in a safe and clean mountain setting.
