About Faith Vokovan

We're from Minneapolis originally, but head West every winter to avoid the cold. We love the mountains and spend as much time as possible mountain biking, road riding, skate skiing, and doing hot yoga. We spend time in the Bay Area, Reno, Colorado, and Palm Springs.

Faith Vokovan purchased this house in 2012

Why Faith Vokovan chose Reno

We spend time in the Bay Area and grew to love Tahoe, so we chose Reno since it's the closest bigger city with an airport and modern conveniences.

What makes this house unique

The single reason we bought this home is because it sits atop Evans Canyon and overlooks Peavine Mountain, which has 40+ miles of mountain bike trails. For bikers, it was a no-brainer. The house itself is very cozy and comfortable, perfect for entertaining, and hosting a group.

Second visit as good as the first

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying in the house and it was just as lovely and wonderful as the first. We appreciate the comfort and generosity of this house immensely -- it truly feels as if we're staying at a friend's home for the weekend.

Great house!

  • 4 of 5
We had 6 people stay in the house while we were at Hot August Nights 2014. The house was clean and well stocked. I thought the guest bedroom I stayed in was very comfortable and I loved that there was a desk in it since I ended up having to work every day I was there. The wifi worked great and I never had any issues. The BIG screen TV in the living room was a big hit as well as having tvs in each of the guest rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and I loved havng all the spices and other food available left by past guests and I also contributed as I left as well.

If I have to say anything negative would be the shower controls in the master bedroom and the landscaping of the front yard. It is one of those multi-nozzle plus rain shower (which I thought about purchasing for my home shower many times). It was a little difficult to operate at first (and everytime for my 80-year old parents) but once you got the hang of it, it was okay. The smaller nozzles hurt as it felt like you were being stung (so I won't buy it for at home). The front yard lawn is dead and not sure if that is because they aren't watering because of the drought or not. But that is it for negatives.

I liked being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of being in Reno and the activities to escape to the house.

The fact that I could bring my dog was the best! thank you!

Great Weekend Away with Friends

  • 5 of 5
My high expectations were surpassed by the comfort and well-appointed interior of this house. 7 of us stayed here for 4th of July weekend, and everything we needed was available to us! An accessible location, a well-stocked kitchen, and wonderful decor were all part of the package. I'd recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun and easy getaway for family or friends.
The only downside I'd point out is there was no deck furniture so we could only enjoy the huge deck overlooking the beautiful canyon below while standing. I wish we could've sat out in the sun or the twilight and had a beer or glass of wine together!

Exceptional vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
I hesitate to say how wonderful this place is because we travel to Reno several times a year and want to be able to stay here as often as possible. The house is gorgeous, generously supplied, and fantastically located in a quiet neighborhood with a stunning view right outside the back door. We often travel with our dogs and appreciate that this rental is not just dog-friendly, but dog-enthusiastic (there were treats in the cupboard when we arrived). We've stayed at several vacation rentals in the past couple of years both in the US and Europe and this was, by far, our favorite. My family and our dogs enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return many times in the future.

Great house in Reno

  • 5 of 5
This house worked great for our family. The floorplan is open and easily accommodated us. It was conveniently located and access to the freeway to go skiing as well as downtown was good. Everything was in good working order and it was clean.

Reno has a lot more to offer than just casinos, with its friendly people and excellent food choices. Among our favorites are Brasserie St James and Campo, or the trendy new 'bottle shop', Craft, for cocktails and specialty beer.
