Comfortable one-story home, GREAT kitchen... BUT READ THE CONTRACT!

  • 4 of 5
Without too much difficulty, we were able to get the landlord to AMEND the UNFAIR terms in the "Fill-in-the-Blank" rental contract that he proposed. FAIR WARNING: READ THE CONTRACT BEFORE YOU SIGN (details below).
This very comfortable home is located in "Tahoe Donner"--a very nice alpine development--everything up-scale. Wonderful facilities for people seeking recreational opportunities (golf, skiing, etc.). For our family reunion of 25 relatives (staying in three different houses), we rented a Tahoe Donner Association pool, able to accommodate 50 people, for 2 1/2 hours (with two lifeguards) for $150. A VERY nice pool facility. What a deal!
This one-story home is on a quiet street. Although the lots are narrow, from the comfortable, wide deck on the back of the house other homes were just glimpses through the very thick and beautiful trees. Very lovely!
As indicated in our review title, the kitchen is exceptionally well-equipped: modern appliances and almost any kitchen tool or gadget you could imagine (among the best two kitchens of some twelve VRBO rentals in our experience). Since we prepared most of our meals, this was a big plus.
The family room and master bedroom have ceiling fans. The other two bedrooms do not. For summer time, we HIGHLY recommend bringing portable fans for those two "fanless" bedrooms. (It would be very inexpensive for the landlord to install ceiling fans, but...).
ABOUT THAT CONTRACT:
It requires you to list by name all temporary tenants living there and would prohibit having other guests, even for dinner: "No other guests, visitors or persons are permitted." (Paragraph 4.) This is a big issue if your "unlisted" dinner guest is injured due to the landlord's negligence (e.g., an unsafe condition on the property). He could argue that it is your fault for having an unlisted guest.
It requires that you pay a NON-REFUNDABLE "Reservation Fee" of $300.00. What is this?
Although it requires a separate "Cleaning Fee" of $130.00, Paragraph10 also states that the "Premises will be delivered to Occupant [that's you, the renter] in a professionally cleaned condition..." "If Occupant does not return the Premises in the same condition, a(n) (additional) charge will be deducted from the security deposit." In other words, you pay twice if you don't leave it "professionally" clean.
This rather strange "boilerplate" contract is published by the California Association of Realtors and is expressly designed to favor the landlord 100%.

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was absolutely lovely, and it was such a treat to be able to have our furry friend with us. Dennis was very attentive to our needs (even when there was snow sliding off the roof but I thought it was an intruder--embarrassing), and the cabin is very nicely appointed. This may sound silly, but I loved loved loved the carpet--it's so soft and plush. I definitely plan to stay here again!

Fantastic cabin; excellent value

  • 5 of 5
What a great find. We have been renting in Truckee for years and this is the first cabin we want to come back to. Great layout, clean house, everything works and is in good condition. Really a fantastic place to stay. They even had a couple boxes of toys which our son immediately pulled out and played with for hours. Very thoughtfully put together vacation rental.

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous house for an adult get away. Three couples can comfortably enjoy time altogether and time apart. Loved the wood stove and proximity to various activities Tahoe and Truckee had to offer. We will definitely return.
