About Nam

Owner's Map of Cottage in Tahoe

Nam purchased this house in 2008

Why Nam chose Al Tahoe

My husband and I fell in love with the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe- the lake, the meadows surrounded by the beautiful mountains.. and of course the inspiring views from the top of Heavenly! Our daughter loves the sandy beaches, our dog loves walking through the meadow and playing on the beach. In the winter, we can't get enough of playing in the snow! I like the size of this city with so many different things to do from night life to hiking and basic amenities like restaurants, groceries, stores and medical facilities all close by. We hope you'll enjoy all that in the comfort of our home. You'll want to keep coming back too! -Nam

Our group loved our stay here!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and looked just like the pictures online. The only thing I would recommend is that you bring your own silverware. There wasn't enough silverware for our group of 8. Also, the temps were high during the day and the screens were off the sliding doors in the bedrooms and one of the windows. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had such a wonderful stay and that you will be coming back! Thank you for bringing the missing silverware to our attention, the house has had a lot of renters and we have not had a chance to re-inventory. We will re-stock more for future guests.

Decent experience

  • 3 of 5

Like some of the other reviews have said, the fridge does have a noticeable hum that is a bit annoying, but whatever. I will say that we were a little disappointed to find a big dog turd in the master bedroom closet when we arrived. Otherwise, it got the job done. Good-sized backyard, and was a short walk to Regan beach.

Great Family Vacation Accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

We booked for two nights and found this cabin to be very comfortable and accommodating. It felt clean and the basic necessities were provided for our extended family of 8, including two children and plus two dogs. Sure, there are a few things that could be improved, such as refilling the spice rack (no salt/pepper), replenish the steak knives, though we were fine with sharing the two that were there, and secure the fence between the house and neighbors as the neighbor's dog barked continually when ours went out, and even tried to attack ours (which are friendly and mellow, though curious) through the fence holes, which we promptly covered! Overall, our family had a fabulous time in Tahoe and would recommend this house to anyone with children and pets. As noted, the house is walking distance to the lake and close to shopping. We enjoyed the hot tub and charcoal grill. We hiked to Angora Lake which is a gorgeous paradise and just a short drive away. Thank you to the owners for providing this house and it's thoughtful amenities. Still waiting for the return of our deposit, but as this is my first VRBO experience, not sure of the time line, it has been a week.

Great location not great house

  • 2 of 5

House was clean but not well equipped. Kitchen was not well-stocked and items were dirty. They only left one key in a lock box which is really difficult to get into. The dishwasher was very loud and the refrigerator compressor rattled all day and night. There were no instructions on how to use the cable DVD player or television and the Wi-Fi only worked half the time. The location was great and there were plenty of comfortable beds.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the location and the comfortable beds! I am so sorry you had trouble with the remaining issues. The TV/DVD is a pretty standard setup with HDMI1 and a cable box. We have instructions next to the cable box, but perhaps they were misplaced by other guests. We will make sure to replace them. The Wifi is via cable modem so there should be no downtime. If you would have called the property manager or us directly, we would have been more than happy to walk you through these issues. Similarly, the lockbox is also a fairly standard kind, on most South Lake Tahoe homes. Was the code hard to enter? The Refrigerator is only a couple of years old so it was surprising to hear it rattled. We will have our property manager look at it but again, if you would have called us at the time, we would have fixed the issues right away. Thanks for bringing these issues to our attention.

Happy Camper

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with friends and weather was a perfect 80 degrees (cooling to the low 50's at night). Property was great with large bedrooms and very comfortable beds, clean and well maintained. Property is about 5 minute drive to Nevada state line and casinos but amazingly quiet at night. We will return in the future.

Happy Camper !

I enjoyed staying at Nam's place.

  • 5 of 5

My guest and I had a great time at Nam's place. The rooms are exactly what you see in the picture so that part we knew what to expect. Great place for a small family to stay at.
