Zermatt, Tahoe Donner Lease

Hi Pat,

Now that I have finally had a moment to catch my breath, I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful trip we had to Tahoe last week. Your VRBO site certainly doesn't do the house justice and I will be sure to write some positive comments there. Everything was great and it was definitely one of the nicest houses we have stayed in (especially the kitchen).

Rent for 1 week this Spring and book directly with us and your nightly rate is as little as $357.00 per night plus tax & cleaning. NEW! DVR with HBO, Pay-Per-View (you will be billed accordingly) and The Music Channels also FREE unlimited Long Distance. NEW 55' LCD in Livingroom with Play Staion 3 and a Blu-Ray player. If you subscribe to NetFlix and you would like to stream your own queue of movies please let us know and we can accomodate you with advance planning. With all that said, 'Welcome to our new (5 years old) home in Tahoe Donner'. This beautiful home has a lot of special features, it was built by the developer to be his own. It is approximately 3500 square feet and has 5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms, sleeps 15, and has approximately 1000 square feet of decks with a private hot tub. The Driveway is Level and the entrance into the house has no steps. Our home is just 20 minutes from all of the major ski resorts, including Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Sugar Bowl & Boreal Ridge. It backs up to an open space meadow with many trails including a trail that is a seven-minute walk to the Trout Creek Recreation Center with swimming pools, hot tubs, hot and dry saunas, a large gym, golf driving range, sledding park, playground, tennis, a New Clubhouse Restaurant, and much more.

It is just five minutes from Highway 80 and 30 minutes from the Reno Airport. Golf is a four-minute drive to either Tahoe Donner Golf Course, or Coyote Moon Golf Course. We have 5 Bdrms 5 Bathrooms equaling 4 Masters made up of 2 Kings and 2 Queens. One of the Queen rooms is a walk through to kids attached Bdrm(s)combined with an entertainment room and a Very Fun & Brand New Air Hockey Table. Ping Pong in the Garage. All bdrms have a flat screen TVs with internet capabilities and most have Blu-ray dvd players.

Handicapped? Because our house has no steps to get in and we have a sleeper sofa on the main floor with a 1/2 bath, there is a possibility for a stay with someone that can't do stairs. However, we are not promoting this house as equipped for a handicapped person. Our floor plan is also not very conducive for wheelchair use. Therefore any consideration of use by a handicapped person would need to be discussed before booking our home.

This is NOT a party house! The amount of people staying at the house should always be the maximum amount of people in the house. No smoking, No Pets, No exceptions. 3 Night Minimum.

We only rent for an entire week for both Christmas Week and New Year's week. There is also a premium fee.

Caution! In the Winter time if you cross over the trail behind the house there are icy ponds and streams under the snow. Please watch your children and stay on the trail!

Children are NOT allowed on the deck unattended, they must have an adult with them.

Make it the perfect vacation and consider my other home in the San Francisco Bay Area. VRBO # 200615

About Bill Hamm

My name is Bill and when my sister Pat and her husband Joe said they wanted to own a place that would be perfect for a vacation spot, I said count me in. We could not be happier.

Bill Hamm purchased this house in 2004

Why Bill Hamm chose Tahoe Donner

The best skiing resorts in Tahoe are all within 20 minutes and the summer activities surround you.

What makes this house unique

When staying in our home we can guarantee that you will have several moments that will create those special memories for your family that will be talked about for years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat & Joe ~

Just wanted to drop a note to you saying we had a WONDERFUL TIME staying in your home. The kids went nuts when they saw the room they were staying in...with the popular air hockey game...and the fact that it was *sans* parents. The named it the *game room*.

We had a great time ...and pretty much right outside the door...which is what we did! We ended up making pretty much a luge (sp???) run down the left side of the house. We left a couple of snow toys there in the inner tube and a flexible boogie board. Ron, show snow boards, made a trail/track for the boys along side the open meadow area to let them get the hang of it...which we have photos of and will send to you. We had snpowball fights, there is a wonderful snowman built on your deck (your neighbors...quite delightful) really liked it, and the well as adults...had a blast going down our *luge* run. FYI...the inner tubes work better than the sleds because they bank better.

The bear in the corner was adorable, but I kept thinking it was a kid standing there, so I finally had to turn it around to face the wall! At least that looked more natural!!

We left ice in the freezer, and a few items in the fridge and cupboards.

I'll send you photos as soon as we get them all together. We would love to do this again sometime...and maybe while there is still snow. Do you have any clue when the snow starts to really vanish??

Thank you again for allowing us a wonderful family opportunity. The kids will remember this forever as will the adults. It was more than memorable in SO many ways. As a result of this trip, we all have bonded in a very unique way. OH...and Jack had a very memorable 7th birthday, too!

Thanks again...and I'll be in touch soon. Take care ~

Patti, Bill, Maria, Lis, Ron, Regina, Chris, Cassie, Nikki, Anthony, Davida, Roland, & Birthday Boy Jack...

Tahoe Donner Magnificent Home

  • 4 of 5

My Family and I really Enjoyed this Beautiful Home . It was nicely decorated, fully stocked, and conviniently located to shopping center. Nice hiking trails out back.... The only draw back was Mother Nature not providing the snow We had to drive to a resort. Oh yea also no Air Hockey table.

Thank You Bill & Pat!!

Owner's Response: Well we are glad you had a nice time. Sorry about not having an Air Hockey Table, I can understand how disappointed your kids must have been. Unfortunately it took quite a beating with some of the previous tenants and we deemed it a hazard and had to remove it before your arrival. Sorry! Hopefully our new Foosball table will be just as big a hit with the kids.

Awesome multi-family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this house. We had 3 families and this house really is "Magnificent". The large open kitchen made it easy for everyone to pitch in with meal time. The bedrooms and bathrooms gave everyone the space and privacy they desired. Morning coffee on the deck is a must. The location made it easy to walk to both clubhouses and take advantage of all that Tahoe Donner has to offer.

Our experience was top notch!

  • 5 of 5

This Tahoe-Donner home surpassed our expectations. As a family, we travel often and stay at many rentals. Our experience was top notch in many ways. First, the photos on this site don’t do the place justice. When we walked in, we felt so lucky to have scored such a rental. It was obvious to us that the owners put a lot of love in designing and decorating the rental. We loved the fact that the house was well stocked with the comforts we needed for our stay - lots of towels, warm blankets, coffee mugs, games, nice shampoo and ample seating. It was so relaxing to curl up with a magazine and look out at nature through the large windows. The three level design of the house made it ideal for our guests and their kids. Everyone had their own private space and looked forwarded to convening for dinner in the kitchen area. The location is also very nice with quiet neighbors, close proximity to the slopes and stores. I highly recommend this space for families who are looking forward to a cozy and memorable weekend. Thank you to the owners who were so helpful and meticulous about providing all the things we needed during the weekend. If I could give extra stars, I would.

Great spot for special occasion

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! We were so happy we chose to spend my mom's 60th birthday here. We had every age from 2 - 60 and it was great fun for all. The house it set up nicely to have many familles and you feel like you can all have your own space and also enjoy time together. There are so many things to, hiking (trail along the creek steps behind the house), and great shopping in downtown Truckee.

The home was beautiful and so comfortable (especially the beds!) The hot tub sure was nice too at the end of the day! The kitchen was fully stocked so we didn't need to bring a thing.

Loved our stay and can't wait to go back! Thanks for keeping such a nice home.

Awesome family home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing family vacation! The house was very spacious with plenty of room for all. A great room for all the cousins to hang out and sleep. Beautiful hiking near a creek steps away. Is near the snow parks and downtown Truckee. Owners were amazing to work with. Such a fun trip! See you next year for our new annual trip!

Best Vacation Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is one of the best we’ve ever rented and we rent a lot. No reason for us to look anywhere else when we’re headed to Tahoe. From the second we walked through the door we felt like it was home – warm, welcoming and fully equipped.

I don’t like to cook, and this kitchen made me want to whip out a recipe book. There were plenty of pots and pans to cook big meals for the 12 people in our party. Additionally, when 3 or 4 people were preparing the meal we weren’t stepping all over each other.

Another positive about this house is the bedrooms. You don’t have to worry about which couple will draw the short straw. All of the rooms are pretty great!

Then there’s the hot tub, steps to wonderful hiking trails, minutes away from great restaurants and shopping in Truckee, and the club house!

It was a great time and we’ll be back! Thanks so much for the opportunity!
