About Consuelo Lumanta

It is my personal commitment to provide a far more rewarding vacation homes to our renters.

Consuelo Lumanta purchased this estate in 2005

Why Consuelo Lumanta chose Christmas Valley

Tahoe dazzles in four season. Anytime of day, The natural beauty surrounds this home make it an almost spiritual retreat. It sits at the base of Echo mountain. The view of Echo summit is spectacular. Non-stop mountain fun is right at your door step.

What makes this estate unique

This stunning log home is an ultimate retreat! The view of Echo summit is magnificent. This location has more snowfall during the winter due to its elevation and it is only a few minutes drive to casino corridor.

During the winter, from time to time, you can see from the house skiing enthusiast skiing down from Echo mountain. The backyard is an endless playground all year round!

GREAT place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to do a group trip to Tahoe during Christmas/New years time and saw multiple listings, but most of them required a minimum of 7 days. However, we were able to book this property for our 4 day stay. The place is great for a big group (16 people). There were plenty of space and beds. For those who did not get a bed, there were futons or mats for us to use. We all love the open area on the top floor for the living room and kitchen, where we spent most of the time as a group. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Not only was the property a very nice place, but the property manager, Consuelo, was awesome. She was very helpful and was very responsive to any questions/concerns we had. She was easy to work with in booking the place. Overall, I highly recommend this property.

Great for large reunions

  • 4 of 5

Every summer we have a reunion in Lake Tahoe, and every time we rent a large house to stay in. This house was one of the best so far. Very clean, comfortable with all the amenities you can imagine. It's not luxary per se, but if you want to have a nice gathering where the focus is reuniting with family and friends, this is the right property.

Property manager, Consuelo is very helpful and managed to get us an early checkin even though the house was occupied just before our arrival date. She is also very prompt.

The only problem I had was that it was ~10-15 mins to the downtown depending on traffic. Again, we just had to go there a couple times for groceries and that was not a big deal for us. On the other hand, this house is very close to Echo lake and you will bypass a lot of traffic getting into and out of South Lake Tahoe because of the property location.

This is one of the houses that we'd consider going back to for winter or summer.

Beautiful, spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and very comfortable. Perfect for our large family vacation. My parents are in their 80's and my grandson is only a few weeks old and everyone was comfortable and happy. The large dining table made dinners fun and the porch with the spa was enjoyed on a few of the rainy afternoons. We played our family golf tournament at Tahoe Paradise and enjoyed a few days at nearby Pope Beach. Great fun was had by everyone. Consuelo and very nice to work with and very accomodating!

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised and was very clean upon our arrival. The many different room configurations and layout of the house is ideal for a large family looking for privacy.

Amenities: The house is very well stocked with every dish and gadget you would ever need while on vacation. Everything from plenty of knifes, forks, spoons and utensils to blenders, coffee grinders and plenty of pots and pans. The game room also is well stocked with everything you would ever need for cocktails. The bathrooms are very large and clean!

The property manager stayed in contact with us during our booking process and provided all home guidelines and expectations well in advance of our arrival. The check out process was painless with clear directions posted throughout the home.

The only minor feedback I will provide is the noise level within the home. You can hear every footstep while people walk, especially on the 1st and 2nd floor. We found ourselves tip toeing while the children were sleeping and you could still hear the footsteps on the two bottoms floors. This is NOT a deal breaker for the home just a heads up to anybody with young children who are sensitive to noise.

Spacious and convieient

  • 4 of 5

After researching many places, we settled on this one to celebrate a birthday with some friends. Consuelo was always helpful and very responsive to emails. The place was as described (we did have some issues of exactly how many beds were available because there was a discrepancy in the listing, but Consuelo confirmed with us quickly after an email was sent). The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood, quick drive to the supermarket, some restaurants, and the ski resorts (Sierra, Heavenly). It was nice to go back and forth from the steam room to the sauna after long days of snowboarding (snow conditions were terrible, but this trip was planned in advance). We even met the neighbors dog and they were very friendly! Overall the trip was a success and the cabin was a perfect fit.

For the reason of not giving full 5 stars. I was charged a $95 due to a foul smell in the master bedroom and pet hair. I did mention prior to us going to the cabin that I would possibly bring two dogs and got them approved but last minute we decided to not bring them, so I was confused as to what pet hair they were discussing about. Also the foul odor in the master bedroom. I was furious that they would charge me for that as my party and I had left the house spotless. How can one prove of the foul odor? I spoke to Consuelo and she mentioned that the house keeper did confirm we left the house in a very clean state (even washing all the dishes and running all loads of laundry!) so she said she will pay half of the fee. Her customer service was still exceptional but I was not satisfied with the answer that they had to charge for the foul odor smell. (How can one prove that there was no foul odor before they left? Too bad we don't have smell-o-gram pictures). Overall, the stay was nice and the place fit us well. I'd just be cautious when you check out to make sure you note everything and to ensure when the cleaning is taking place after your departure.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review. I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay and the house was such a perfect fit for your group. It’s unfortunate that there was a misunderstanding between us regarding the final cleaning. As you know, as a good faith gesture, we accommodated your group with a very late checkout without charging additional fees and only charged for half of the additional cleaning fee. I hope to have you back in the future and earn your extra star. Consuelo
