Awesome House in a Great Location with EXCELLENT service

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for! It was perfect for our group of 9!

Geri was always very responsive and accommodating throughout the booking process. Any questions we had were answered promptly. The service was also incredible. We ran out of propane at 8:30pm and someone came by within 15 minutes to drop off a new tank.

I highly recommend this home based on our experience! A+++

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

We hit town before all the major attractions were open and before all the tourists hit town for the major gold tournament. However there was plenty to do in the cabin. On Sunday it snowed and the weather called for indoor activities. The cabin accommodated our every needs and entertained us all when we weren't able to hit the town. The sauna was awesome and relaxing. My favorite pastime was the gameroom with the many arcade games as well as the pool table.

Perfect setting for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Tahoe to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The owner was very accommodating since it was a surprise. We had 11 adults and everyone slept great! We enjoyed the video games, pool table, hot tub and BBQ grill. The neighborhood is nice and not traveled by many cars. It is a short walk to the beach and park. The house is in great proximity to the casinos, lake and restaurants. We made lots of memories and will definitely be back!

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.
