Perfect Getaway for Large Group
A group of 14 women stayed at the Kaleta's home for a (much needed) girl's getaway. Quite a number of us have small children, so it wasn't all that easy to leave home - UNTIL we walked into this gorgeous home.
The home sits inside of a gated community right on Tahoe Boulevard, about a mile from Stateline. The gates were a bit hard to find, as we were expecting to turn onto a street first. Once inside of the gates, it was easy to find the home (maybe a half mile or so once you enter the gates).
The house was incredible. It was extremely clean and all that it showed in the pictures. Linens were provided, including towels. Each of the bedrooms has it's own vanity with sink and mirror, which freed up the bathrooms quite a bit. The Kaletas also provide face wipes by each sink so that those are used vs. towels to wipe off makeup. The kitchen table sat all of us together.
Only downfall is that it was unusually hot that weekend in South Tahoe (nearly 90) and the house did not have AC (as most don't over there). The house was boiling in the evening and didn't cool again until the sun set and a small breeze kicked in. There was a ceiling fan in the entry, but it didn't seem to work. We later found fans in a couple of closets, so that helped a lot.
Vicky was super easy to work with - very responsive, very nice, answered all of my questions ahead of time, communicated when she received my deposit and then my payment, sent very detailed instructions on how to get the key, the gate code, how to use the jacuzzi and the TV.
I was a little worried about the steep deposit, however, was refunded my entire deposit with no problem or questioning whatsoever, within a few days.
We had SUCH an incredible time and cannot wait to visit again - hoping next summer!! Highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: We are glad to know your group had a wonderful stay. To address your concern, to cool the home for those few exceptionally warm days in Tahoe, we will add more fans in strategic locations to pull cooler air from the lake through the house. The ceiling fan is in working order, we will provide instructions regarding its operation. Over ninety-nine percent of the time we return the full security deposit, only on rare occasions when there is gross negligence, such as large parties exceeding the agreed upon occupancy do we retain a portion of the deposit.
