About RICK STRODE
We have been in the vacation rental business in Reno for the past 9 years. We started with several homes that I own myself and have added additional homes two of which are million-dollar homes and are the finest in Reno. We have always met our guests upon arrival to help them get started very quickly and to know everything about the house that will be useful. Take the time to read our customer reviews and you will be impressed by our service. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future.
RICK STRODE purchased this House in 2001
Why RICK STRODE chose Reno
This property has all of the comforts of home and more and is conveniently located within three miles of the Atlantis hotel/casino and Reno's shopping district with a similar home available three blocks away!
What makes this House unique
The Reno and Lake Tahoe area have more to offer than almost any other holiday Resort. There are more out door activities to do summer and winter than almost any other location in the country from swimming and hiking in the summer at Sand Harbor on beautiful Lake Tahoe to skiing and ice skating in the winter. Reno itself has outstanding events almost every week. This is a great place for your family to visit!

This house was in a great location for the Hot August Night events we went to. Even though it was located on the flight path of the airport which wasn't all that noticed.
All in all, it was a great property.
Exactly what we needed!
Rick was an outstanding host in every way. The location was very centralized, and completely suited our needs.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO REVIEW OUR FOUR BEDROOM HOME. THIS HOME IS ASKED FOR OFTEN FOR ATHLETIC GROUPS COMING TO RENO AS IT IS CONVENIENTLY LOCATED NEAR THE CONVENTION CENTER AND THE ATLANTIS HOTEL/CASINO. IT WAS PARTICULARLY ENJOYABLE SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCES AS A FATHER WATCHING HIS DAUGHTER BEGIN A PROMISING FUTURE. I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOUR WIFE'S DAUGHTER WHEN SHE ATTENDS THE UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA HERE IN RENO AS THIS IS A GREAT CITY TO ENJOY COLLEGE. IF YOU PLAN TO VISIT AS SHE CONTINUES HER EDUCATION WE HAVE THREE, FOUR AND FIVE BEDROOM HOMES TO FIT ANY SIZE GROUPS VISITING. I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR RETURN! RICK
Nice location the house needs repair and a deep cleaning.
The location of the house is nice. It was easy to get to where we needed to be. The house it self is dirty and was in disrepair. The upper master bedroom was okay but the skin on the bedroom door was coming off and the bathroom had three of the six light bulbs burned out. We called the next morning to see about getting light bulbs replaced. They responded and came over that morning, they brought us the light bulbs and that's it we had to replace them ourselves. Also there wasn't much in the way of heat in that bedroom. The shower stall needs to be replaced the current stall is cracked every where and the floor in shower is not solid it gives when you step into it. The rail going down the stairway is not attached to the brackets at the bottom. There are many floor tiles that are cracked and they actually put clear packing tape over some of the cracks to hold it in place. The downstairs master bedroom is fine but the toilet overflowed in the master bath because the flapper was bad. We called and they came over and fixed it. The third bathroom was okay except for the shower. When my helper took a shower it didn't drain so he was standing in water about upper calf high every time he took a shower. The kitchen had exactly one coffee mug the rest of the cups were more like tea cups and they looked like they were picked up at the local swap meet. There was one wine glass and it to looked like it was picked up at the same swap meet. There needed to be more in the way of kitchen supplies the soap container was empty. We had to go down and buy coffee cups and wine glasses for our stay. The dining room was okay with the exception of the broken chairs. Now this brings us the living room it was fine it had leather furniture a fireplace and a nice TV. The leather recliner was unable to recline because it was broken. The house was cold no matter what you did you couldn't raise the temperature in the house because it wouldn't go above 68 degrees. The first morning there was 4" of snow on the grown. The front and back doors need to be replaced. The back yard is fine but we were told that it was secure for my dog it was after we blocked the holes in the fence. The entire perimeter fence needs to be replaced. The entire house needs a real deep cleaning it is not clean by any stretch of the imagination. The showers all had hair in them from previous tenants that had stayed there.
WE HAD FIVE GROUPS THIS YEAR FOR THE SAHARA CLUB INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION FROM ALL PARTS OF THE GLOBE INCLUDING GROUPS FROM CANADA, NEW ZEALAND AND SOUTH AFRICA. THIS IS A VERY AFFLUENT GROUP AND ALTHOUGH RENO DOES NOT HAVE MANY LUXURY VACATION HOMES WE HAVE FOUR OF THEM THAT RANGE IN PRICE FROM $400 TO $550 PER NIGHT BUT YOU CHOSE ONE OF OUR BUDGET HOMES AT A LITTLE OVER $200 PER NIGHT. THE FIRST DAY YOU CALLED AND TOLD ME SOME OF THE LAMPS IN THE HOME HAD BURNED OUT BULBS AND I SENT ONE OF MY TEAMS TO THE HOME WITH ADDITIONAL LIGHTBULBS. THEY TESTED EVERY LAMP AND OVERHEAD LIGHT IN THE HOME AND ALL WERE OPERATIONAL SO I HAD THEM LEAVE ALL THE LAMPS AND OVERHEAD LIGHTS TURNED ON TO SHOW THEY WERE WORKING, SOME ADDITIONAL BULBS AND A NOTE THAT NOT ALL OF THE LAMPS WERE OPERATED BY THE WALL SWITCHES NEAR THE BEDROOM DOOR. YOU CALLED TWO DAYS LATER TO SAY ONE OF THE TOILETS HAD A TRICKLE AND WE REPLACED THE FLAPPER WITHIN A FEW HOURS. YOU NEVER MENTIONED A LACK OF COFFEE MUGS BUT THERE WERE FIVE MORE IN THE UPPER LEVEL CABINET AND WE'VE ADDED SIX MORE SINCE. WE GET LARGE ATHLETIC GROUPS IN THE SPRING AND SUMMER AND SO IN ALL OF OUR HOMES INCLUDING THIS ONE WE HAVE DOUBLE SETS OF DISHES, TWO SETS OF POTS AND PANS, TWENTY GLASSES OF VARYING SIZES, TWENTY TOWELS AND WASH CLOTHS. DID IT NOT SEEM ODD THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONLY ONE COFFEE CUP? WE CAME TWICE TO THE HOME AND WOULD HAVE LOCATED THE ONES IN THE HOME FOR YOU OR BROUGHT MORE. MY STAFF IS CONSTANTLY LOOKING AT INVENTORY LEVELS. THE HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD AND ON A SMART THERMOSTAT WHICH I EXPLAINED TO YOU UPON ARRIVAL. THE TEMPERATURE LEVEL IS SET AT 70 DEGREES ON A SCHEDULE AND CAN BE RAISED OR LOWERED MANUALLY BY OUR GUESTS. I HAVE A CANCER PATIENT IN THE HOME RIGHT NOW THAT REQUESTS THE SCHEDULE BE SET AT 77 DEGREES WHICH IS ABNORMALLY HOT FOR MOST OF OUR GUESTS. THEY HAVE STAYED WITH ME FIVE TIMES AND REQUEST THIS HOME DUE TO LOCATION FROM THE CLINIC AND BUDGET PRICE. THIS HOME HAS ALREADY BEEN REBOOKED FOR THE APRIL VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENTS AND MAY BASKETBALL TOURNAMENTS FROM PAST TOURNAMENT TEAMS. OF OUR FOUR LUXURY HOMES THREE OF THE FOUR GROUPS FROM THE SAHARA CLUB HAVE ALREADY REBOOKED FOR 2020. IT IS MY GUESS THAT AS A MEMBER OF THE SAHARA CLUB INTERNATIONAL YOU ARE USED TO BOOKING LUXURY ACCOMODATIONS AND BOOKED A $200 HOME INSTEAD. SHOULD YOU RETURN NEXT YEAR PLEASE LOOK AT OUR LUXURY HOMES. YOU WILL LOVE THEM! THE OTHERS DID.
In serious need of cleaning and a remodel
This property has been a big disappointment! It is dirty, furniture are old, broken deck, fence, etc... Our Taiwanese guest liked it because it looked like a house in an American movie from the 80s.
Overall not good!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR REVIEW. HOWEVER, IT IS NOT VERY ACCURATE. AS WE DISCUSSED WE HAVE THREE OLDER HOMES LISTED ON VRBO AND THREE LUXURY HOMES AND YOU TOLD ME YOU CHOSE THIS ONE BASED ON PRICE BECAUSE IT PRICES SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW OUR LUXURY HOMES AND YOU WERE GOING TO BE IN A BIKE RACE AND ONLY NEEDED GOOD BEDS. THE HOME IS FULLY FURNISHED WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEEDED AND ALL OF THE BEDS HAVE $2000 MATTRESSES WHICH IS UNUSUAL IN THIS BUSINESS. THIS HOME IS LOCATED WITHIN THREE MILES OF THE CONVENTION CENTER AND GETS LOTS OF REPEAT BUISNESS FROM ATHLETIC TEAMS AND GROUPS COMING IN FOR EVENTS HELD THERE. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO BOOK ONE OF OUR LUXURY HOMES WHEN YOU RETURN.
great spot close to everything
The stay was nice everything is near by and easy to get to.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME TO REVIEW OUR PROPERTY. I WAS PLEASED THAT YOUR FAMILY HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME IN RENO. OUR PROPERTIES ARE EQUIPPED WITH EXTRAS OF ALMOST EVERYTHING WITH THE ATHLETIC CONTESTS AND LARGE FAMILY GROUPS IN MIND AND WE ALWAY LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING THE THESE GROUPS STAY WITH US! AS YOU KNOW WE HAVE SEVERAL VACATION RENTAL PROPERTIES IN RENO AND LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FAMILY'S RETURN! RICK
The property is located near the Convention Center and the Atlantis and Peppermill casinos and main shopping district. It is within three miles of the airport and within five miles of the downtown casino area. The home is conveniently located near interstate 395 access just 35 miles from beautiful Lake Tahoe.
