GREAT place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to do a group trip to Tahoe during Christmas/New years time and saw multiple listings, but most of them required a minimum of 7 days. However, we were able to book this property for our 4 day stay. The place is great for a big group (16 people). There were plenty of space and beds. For those who did not get a bed, there were futons or mats for us to use. We all love the open area on the top floor for the living room and kitchen, where we spent most of the time as a group. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Not only was the property a very nice place, but the property manager, Consuelo, was awesome. She was very helpful and was very responsive to any questions/concerns we had. She was easy to work with in booking the place. Overall, I highly recommend this property.

Great vacation log cabin home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husbands 70th birthday here for 3 nights in September. Great house with lots of room for all our 5 adult children and their spouses. Rooms were spacious and lots of bathrooms. Game room on lower level was perfect as was the deck and hot tub. The only requirement, even on weekends, was a quiet hours curfew after 9:00 PM, which included no hot tub jets and very low voices on the deck, due to the close proximity to neighbors that will call the owner or police if not adhered to. Other than that, the house is wonderful for couples, families, or anyone needing great space and close to Tahoe skiing and fun activities. We had a wonderful experience. Consuela was very helpful with everything, including giving us an earlier check in and check out due to no one coming in or leaving on days we arrived or departed. Highly recommend this vacation property.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. South Lake Tahoe Vacation Rental Ordinance has been amended and it all applies to all vacation rental homes specially during the evening hours. Conversations and voices gets carried farther due to Tahoe’s elevation and thin air. The hot tub use restrictions are also part of the updated ordinance to all vacation rental homes and we are required to post that restrictions in our vacation rentals. I am so happy that you had a nice stay.

Stunning home!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home! Our research group from UC Berkeley decided to plan a lab retreat, and when we saw this listing, it was immediately our favorite. The experience did not disappoint.

The home is quite spacious, but we didn't feel too spread out. The game room downstairs was wonderful, and we got plenty of use out of the pool table. There was more than enough space to accommodate our full group (15 people). The kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, dinnerware, utensils, etc. Everything was very clean and well-maintained as well. Of course, we loved using the hot tub and spent plenty of time grilling and relaxing on the deck.

Consuelo was absolutely wonderful and a joy to work with - she was extremely communicative and answered emails and questions promptly.

We will definitely rent with her again and are already eyeing a weekend to return to this same house next year!

This home is just beautiful. The description was accurate and all the amenities were in great working condition when we arrived. The property was clean and clearly well maintained. Consuelo always responded quickly to any questions we had and provided great suggestions for the area. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone trying to get away to Tahoe. The local pizza delivery service was pretty atrocious, we didn't expect to be ordering but the snow storm caught us off guard. They never delivered the pizza and charged us anyway so stay away from Blue Dog Pizza.
