About Joanne

We purchased our home in 2000. In the first few years we rented through an agency, which only cared about high prices and did not care about the house. In 2005 we took the house off the rental market and completely remodeled it over a 2 year period. We then decided to manage our home ourselves and offer it to guests to come and enjoy all our hard work. We pride ourselves on having a clean, well maintained home, with plenty of amenities for our guests.

We offer reasonable prices, with a repeat client discount. Please come and stay in our home,

Joanne & Dale

Why Joanne chose Incline Village

We love Lake Tahoe's North Shore, it is a special area with lots of wild life and on the 'quiet' side of the Lake.

This house was perfect for the entire family. We will definitely rent it again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Tahoe for a wedding coming from all over the U.S. This house worked so well for the week visit for 12 people! It was clean, comfortable, and loaded with anything one might need. The decks are awesome - where we spent most of the time. Beautiful weather, close to the beach for the wedding, definitely a week to remember for all of us. Scheduling and working the details with the owners was friendly, enjoyable, and prompt. We will definitely rent this place again.

Thank You!!

Home was nice, kitchen issues

  • 3 of 5

Home was nice, very spacious. Worked great for the 3 families with kids. Wish the hot tub was bigger. The kitchen had a few issues, no sponges, soap had to have been watered down by 75%, dishwasher didn't clean dishes and left a VERY weird black residue in all the cups. The worst part was there was NO water pressure, I mean none. It took 15 minutes to fill a lot of water and washing dishes was horrible. We called Ramon a few times, he finally called back the day before we left, came over to look but couldn't fix. Never realized how much a kitchen sink mattered until it didn't work.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry you were so unhappy with your stay to give us the lowest rating we have ever had in 18 years of renting our home. To address your issues, 1. The hot tub is the size it is as shown in the listing pictures. 2. We do not supply sponges as they are the single biggest risk of transmitting bacteria like Salmonella in kitchens and baths. 3. We never water down our dish soap, however there is another bottle at the back of the sink cabinet, and another in the cabinet in the laundry where the laundry soap is placed. 4. The water pressure was the result of a broken cartridge in the Grohe faucet. We have no control over a factory defect. 5. I have checked with the renters before you and after your stay and both renters assure me there was no "black residue" from the Bosch dishwasher. I am not sure what the problem was during your stay but perhaps you didn't had it on the proper cycle. These renters also said the water pressure wasn't a problem for them, it just took a bit longer to fill a pot or the sink. The defective faucet has been replaced. 6. When you texted me about the water pressure you did so at 10:42 pm 2 1/2 days into your 4 day stay. The next morning, I contacted my property manager and he came to the house promptly. Again, I am sorry you found so many "issues" with our home. We wish you well in finding the perfect rental the next time you rent. Best Regards, Joanne

Fun fun fun

We rent the place so we can enjoy the winter snow but unfortunately there wasn’t any. Nevertheless we are so happy and had the time of our lives in this lovely home. Rooms are spacious. Place is clean and very well kept. I’m gonna think of this place next time we are out there. Special thanks to the owner Joanne for sharing your wonderful home.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time, despite the lack of snow. I have been doing my snow dance but I must have some of the moves wrong. Now you know Tahoe can be beautiful any time of the year!! Hope to have you back soon.

Out downstairs master room mattress was a bit firm and slopes but we slept great! Everybody else was comfortable. Dining table great for 9 for Thanksgiving. Lots of stairs at altitude but no problem! Huge deck in the tight weather. Close to amenities but quiet. Hot tub was a hit!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house. As to the mattress, all mattresses have been replaced within the last 2 years. Some people like soft, some firm, we tried to do the middle of the road.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed this house we booked for our son's wedding in Lake Tahoe ! Kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of towels for use !

The location was great on a quiet street ! The deck is really nice we planned on having a cookout but it rained the night we had planned this ! Still fit everyone inside for a nice dinner ! The only draw back I heard from our guests were some of the mattresses seemed old and broken down ! My sister said in the master down she slept sideways to avoid the deep mattress depression. The other mattress that was a complaint was the upstairs bed to right ! My brother said the mattress also needed updating ! Our mattress in the upstairs middle bedroom was really comfy ! Thanks for some nice memories !
