Great location, needs some updates

  • 4 of 5

I picked this place by the location (1), by how many it would accommodate (2), and because it had a hot tub (3). The games were an added bonus that the kids initially were very excited about...until they realized they had better games on their iPads. Still, made the place unique. The neighborhood is quiet - almost too quiet for my 4 kids. The hot tub died on us after about 10 minutes first use - but management/maintenance came within a few hours and it worked flawlessly after that. The BBQ was a problem - we were able to get it to light just once, but never again after that. So resorted to indoor cooking. We initially had problems with the cable TV, but figured it out.

Overall, this place worked out very well for the family 4 adults and 4 kids ages 4-13. There were 2 bedrooms and a bath downstairs, so grandparents didn't have to use the stairs. 3 bathrooms were plenty. The kitchen and all the utensils/cookware were great. It's old and floors creaked, especially when walking upstairs late at night. The furnishings (especially the bedding) could be updated.

Location didn't disappoint - close to restaurants, shopping, Heavenly Ski Resort, lake access, hiking, rock climbing, etc. Fun fun fun. I'd recommend for groups of 8+ people.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed your trip to Tahoe. Many of our guests have the same positive feedback on the size of the house, its amenities, new kitchen, and its proximity to restaurants, shopping, the lake and all the outdoor fun that Tahoe has to offer. We find that most of our guests have a great deal of fun with the vintage arcade games as kids of all ages battle parents for supremacy in "what used to be". One thing we have learned is that not all guests match up with amenities and expectations of every rental property but hopefully your kids were able to use the house WiFi to play games on their IPads. We always follow-up quickly to resolve any issues that may arise during a guests visit, and before the next guest arrives. We appreciate your 'heads up' on the issue with the spa. We are glad that it was resolved quickly. Although the tanks are replenished frequently, the BBQ gets a lot of use in the summer and may have run out of propane, which of course, would have been replaced by our property manager or reimbursed if the guests choose to swap out the tank themselves. We figured out that the issue with the cable tv was caused when someone in your party upgraded the premium channels without the owners permission. Fortunately, the cable company was willing to reverse those charges so there was no penalty to you, the guest. We hope you and your family enjoy many more trips to beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Fantastic for BIG family or Big Group Vacations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of consisting of Grandparents, Grandkids and adult children with spouses rented this vacation home. There were NINE of us & still plenty of room for more than that. This House is set in a beautiful location, surrounded by natural beauty and yet still close to everything you might want or need. Kitchen is large, well stocked & modern. Plenty of fun things to do right in this home. Pac man was a VERY big hit as was the pool table and video games. Only a short Walk to Secret beach. Comfortable beds, plenty of room and was clean as a whistle when we all checked in. All in all a wonderful vacation in So. Lake Tahoe.

Awesome Vacation Rental in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. Everyone was very impressed with the spaciousness of the house and the chefs all loved the quality of the cookware, the availability of spices and cooking oils, and the ample supply of dishes, pans and baking sheets. The appliances were fantastic. The dishwasher was a god-send with our group. The kids, both big and small, enjoyed the vintage arcade. I was initially worried about the size of the beds but it turned out to be a non-issue. The beds and pillows were also very comfortable. There really was plenty of room for all 12 of us to spread out. We didn't have a chance to use the grill or the hot tub but I'm sure they would have been great too. I've been to a variety of vacation rentals and this is one of the best. I wish we could have stayed longer but we had to return to reality at some point. :)

Thanks for sharing your lovely house and keeping it in such wonderful condition. I would love to return with the family in the future.

Large Home on Stanford by the Meadow in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Great house! We loved the great room with the vaulted ceiling and the gas rock fireplace and my new high score on Ms. Pac Man! 5 bedrooms was perfect for the whole family visiting from Chicago and Boston. The hot tub was perfect and the neighborhood was very quiet. All we needed was more snow but hopefully it is coming. Thank you to the owner for making your home so welcoming and having such a great complete kitchen. Perfect house!

We had the most wonderful weekend with Family and friends at this vacation rental in Tahoe. Spacious house, great for families with kids. With room enough for adults to relax and kids to have fun. The home was clean upon arrival and had all that was necessary for a fun getaway.
