Worst Vacation Experience Ever!

  • 1 of 5

Review #11063269 “Worst Vacation Ever!”

The house was falsely advertised.We did not know we would have to step outside to enter one part of the house from the other&that the long hallway joining the two houses would be freezing cold!However the biggest issues are the accusations made against our family that turned this vacation into a nightmare.Our deposit was withheld from us on trumped up charges.HO claimed we had major plumbing issues&did not tell him because an apartment under the house, which we had NO access to,had a back up of sewage in the shower.I told HO we did not have plumbing issues,excluding one time when the toilet water would not go all the way down & we had to plunge it.Something that happens in most people's houses WITHOUT causing a sewage back up.The HO would have been notified immediately,because we had 20 people in the house.HO was e-mailed several times throughout our stay,regarding issues in the home.So the line of communication was open.

HO claimed we had 30 people in his home and he had to charge us 10 hours over the regular clean.Completely untrue,we actually had three less people in the house than originally planned.We are a clean family & did more than required of check out procedures.We were asked to put all linens by the washer, we actually started a load&did 2 loads of laundry,3 of the loft bedding were never used.We did all dishes&started the dishwasher as required & we vacuumed & cleaned the kitchens several times a day.The house was not in tip top shape when we arrived,there were cigarettes & trash in one of the room's closet and another had a condom & men's underwear in the dresser drawer.

HO claimed he had to move furniture back,if he did it was by mere inches,because of the Christmas tree.

HO is blaming us for a leak under kitch. sink-that we told him about when it was discovered & we cleaned up & he never got back to us!

HO claimed he had to spend 3 hours removing a sled run that we built in his driveway&that we used all his salt.We used the salt because the driveway was icy when we got there and is very steep We had trouble getting four wheel drives up the driveway and some of us had to put chains on.We went and got extra salt for the rest of our stay.Yes we sledded down his driveway-we saw his cameras outside&knew we were being watched!

HO claimed the spas were trashed & reeked of urine-UNBELIEVABLE!They were hardly used! & this wasn't even mentioned until after we contacted VRBO.

Owner's Response: Your letter is nothing more than a revenge letter, and to hear such a different story is typical when guests do not receive their deposit back. VRBO denied your claim regarding your deposit refund after viewing the documents and photos that I sent them. I originally had you booked as 12 adults and 4 children. There was 30 plus people there with 15 or more being unsupervised children. The amount of people you let stay with your group was never approved by myself, and you never ever stated that you would have that many guests. The sled run your group built was very hard to dismantle, and was necessary to remove for the next group to use the driveway. The amount of furniture that was moved from one house to the other was very time consuming to re-arrange. The sewer that backed up in the maids store room was not a pretty sight! All this damage and no admission of responsibility was very frustrating. Previously meeting you personally along with your husband and many other party members and hearing how you had such a good time, and were sorry that you checked out many hours beyond your checkout time was a big act, and considering that I had a new group showing up within hours, I was very disappointed when I discovered all the damage and emailed you immediately. You told me there was never any issues except a leak in the lower kitchen which your relative" fixed". Turns out someone pulled the pipe away from the drain tail piece and was never put back into the trap. This and also the sewer back up were well beyond the paltry 600 dollars I deducted from your deposit. When I got a report from the maids that they found plungers in both bathrooms in the upper house coated with toilet paper and still wet! Earlier you told me that there were no plumbing issues, later changed your story after I mentioned both toilets upstairs were backed up! You also emailed me that a few glasses were broken. There was many wine glasses and shooter glasses and plates that disappeared, or were broken. The spas were so bad that they needed double dumps to clean them up. Your letter took 3 months to compose all of your issues. It took me only a short while to respond to such a malicious review, and to hear all the false statements is only a sign of what kind of person you really are!

Best time we had!

  • 5 of 5

I promised a review when we stayed at this place, and now here it is. Lots of bedrooms and sleeping areas, very family oriented house, and surroundings all combined with nature Wild animals came to visit, including chipmonks, squirrels, and racoons. Plenty of trails from which to hike. We rode our mountain bikes from the house, and others also rented some right down the path from where the house is, and the selection was teriffic. Big decks and also lots of chairs and chaise lounges around the property. Both spas worked without any problems. Privacy is the best part of this place and everyone enjoyed the peace and quiet

4 familys for fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house known as the Secluded Tahoe Mansion, of which we expected a lot of snow and difficulty in parking but it was a breeze. The cul de sac where this home is located is quite large and we were able to park right on the street. We had a full house, and with some extra guests showing up, had extra beds and plenty of sheets and towels. The Nordic Ski Center out behind the house had snow, but not enough to go very far. The two outdoor spas were a blessing, and everyone enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. The floor plan is a bit confusing with all the different rooms, but once used to the surroundings, it was fine, and also there are plenty of different outdoor lights which is always nice. The fire pit in the back yard was also a nice extra. This house had it all, and even though the snow was minimal, we all had a very good time.

Tahoe City Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Tahoe City was quite pleasant, even though the snow was minimal, there was enough out back to make a snow man and do a bit of sled riding. The house we stayed at was quite unique as it was really two houses that were connected by some covered stairs. We enjoyed the separation as there was two age groups and the elder group stay up in the main house, and the youngers stayed at the lower place, where the big spa was, and we had the smaller spa to ourselves, and enjoyed the added privacy. The sleeping accomadations were all spread out, and one of the larger bedrooms had a loft that slept people above the master bedroom area, and it was a bit tight sleeping arangements, but we managed. There was a large fire pit in the back yard, and we found all sorts of wood to burn and we had a roaring fire in January. We also did some hiking out back and the trails are all well marked, and we even had a trip to the lake that was frozen over and looked to have a beaver nest at one end. We found many animal tracks in the snow, and some were large like a bear. Cooking dinner at our house was an easy chore as the commercial oven held 3 turkeys, and some side dishes, and the large burners on the stove heated up the large pots of stew very fast. The outdoor barbecues were nice also and we had more food cooked than we possibly could have ate! The town of Tahoe City is close by, and there are several major grocery stores and also some shopping malls. We also found a 7-11 close by, and there is a free ski shuttle to take you to Squaw Valley. Our stay was perfect as there was no noise of the cars or anything else besides the trees rustling from the wind, and that is the whole reason we chose this house at Tahoe to spend our stay

Bring your own bed sheets

  • 2 of 5

It has a lot of rooms, but the mattresses are in very bad shape you can feel the springs. The bed sheets have a smell and is not from soap, so I recommend you to bring yours or bring soap and clean them before use.

Bring Lysol and spray it over the bed to avoid bed bugs and in the carpet.

Check if all the system work, including TV, Cable, Stereo, WiFi because if you don't do that then you could be charged.

The heater is set to automatic, so during the night it will be very hot and dry.

The lower part is a little bit scary and if you bring kids don't use the lower area as it has a kind of second floor in one of the rooms and it only has a wall made of pieces of wood which any kid could fit and fall down. That is why we decided to switch rooms and close that area.

Owner's Response: I strive to make my property confortable for everyone, and to get the reivew posted is a bit of a surprise to me, especially after you personally told me what a good time you and your family had. I even told you that you could check out later than the 10 oclock time if you needed to. It was after you left that I noticed the damage to my house right away. The large plasma tv was sitting crooked on top of the entertainment center. The DVD stereo surround player was shorted out and not responding. There was a huge gouge in the hardwood floor, and a broken lamp that was on the nightstand in one of the masters which was found in one of the closets. Furniture was left outside on the lower spa deck, and there was also garbage strewn around on the deck. I also noticed dog hair all over several of the bed spreads, couch, and also the carpets. I let you bring a dog without charging you, and also gave you a 10 percent discount on the rental amount, and even let you have more than the maximum limit regarding guests. I was always available by phone and email, and if indeed there was a problem with anything, don't you think you would have telephoned or emailed me? I emailed you right away about the damage, and you responded that you would talk to your friends to see who did it. You also said one of your friends children left some toys behind. I made a trip to the house, found the toys in the trash, made sure they were not soiled, bagged them up and sent them off to you priority mail with a tracking number. I emailed you a list of things that were damaged. I only charged you 200 dollars for the damage, the stereo alone was almost 200, and I sent back way more of your deposit then was required of me, and even told you in the email that I would be as fair as I could and with the amount of people you had, accidents do happen. I never got a thank you or even a reply, and when one of your friends emailed me complaining about sheets smelling, I only assumed that you and your guests were trying to seek a reduction in the damage. This happens all the time. Guests stay at the house, love the place, and then they do some damage to the house, and think they can threaten me with a bad review like you or your friends did. I thought you and your wife were very nice people, and your friends attempted to take care of my house which I appreciate, and for you to leave a malicious review is a reflection of your frustration of losing 200 dollars of your 600 dollar deposit!

Peaceful Stay in High Country

Staying at the Lake

We had a wonderful time while staying at Tahoe and the accommodations we had at the Secluded Tahoe Mansion were just perfect. The surroundings are all forested areas with more mountain bike trails than anywhere we have ridden. One of the best rides was to Northstar and the scenery along the way. There are several lakes located close by, and some even had big trout in them! The house is well equipped, and the 2 spas were a big plus with the crowd we had. We also enjoyed the oversized barbecue on the back deck, and also the other one by the dining room.

Sleeping accommodations were also a big plus, and most of the linens looked almost new. The dining room was also large, and we were able to squeeze 22 in there, but it was a bit tight, so we seated others in the kitchen which adjoins the dining room. There was a big butcher block in the center and this was used plenty to chop and talk and serve drinks while waiting for the next meal, and a bar seating area on one side with bar stools for more seating and eating. The large commercial gas range made cooking fun, especially with the grill in the middle. The other stove in the lower house was handy and we were able to let more than one chef do their job. The lawn out back was a good spot for my parents, and we all loved playing croquet with them, and the walking trails were just what everybody needed after feasting on all the good food we created. The free long distance and the local phone number was a great way to stay in touch, and the internet worked flawlessly, and fast! Tahoe City is close by and Wolfdales restaurant was one of our favorites for dining. There is also several super markets in Tahoe City and plenty of gift shops. All and all this was a good house to stay at, and the memories will always be with us!

Thank you!
