Perfect for our Family!!

  • 5 of 5

I won't be redundant with the other great reviews, just will confirm this place is great! With a large multi-generational family we are always looking for "the house" that will fit the needs of the entire family and this time we did! After about 12 previous annual Tahoe Vacation attempts, this place fills the bill!

Thank you Jim for helping us make our stay AWESOME!

Looking forward to booking it for next year!

"The Best Family Vacation Ever!"

  • 5 of 5

That is an exact quote from one young adult in our seven family reunion. When you put together a multi-family reunion with ages from toddlers to retirees, it is a huge challenge to find accommodation that everyone finds great...and this is the place! It is so large - with so many "activity" areas and sleeping rooms - no one never felt cramped or closed in. The dining area was huge and the kitchen was fully pre-stocked with virtually every cooking utensil or appliance needed so preparing large meals and serving the entire group always went smoothly. The younger crowd loved all the on-site activities (kayak, canoe, paddle boat, table tennis, poker/card table, pool table, dart board and even fishing right from the dock. The adults loved all the outdoor seating areas, the fast wi-fi (for checking business emails) and, of course, the bar with the keg cooler. The owner, Jim, was super accommodating during the entire process from showing the property to booking it to being there on our day of arrival to insure everything was explained and working. It was comforting to know that the owner was nearby and available if anything important was to need attention during our stay. Having been a luxury vacation home and resort property manager, I recommend this beautiful waterfront vacation home - without hesitation - to anyone looking to have a truly memorable stay in South Lake Tahoe. Thanks Jim!

Awesome home!! Highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than it looks in the pictures. You really have to see it to believe it. Lots of room means you'll never feel crowded in with a large group. The kitchen is excellent for cooking meals and the dining area will seat 18 so everyone can eat at the table together. Will definitely be coming back for my summer trip and will book again for all future winter trips!!

A Wonderful House with Literally Everything

  • 5 of 5

When renting your vacation home to people, I know it can be difficult to think of the comforts amenities you might need to stock it with to ensure that your tenants enjoy their trip. Some can be expensive or strange and you're not sure which one's you they'll need.

The solution for the house was to just have all of them. Honestly. As an example, I usually take a cold fan humidifier up to places in Tahoe because the air is so dry. This is the first place I've ever been that just had on in the bathroom, waiting to be used.

The kitchen comes stocked with cooking tools of all sorts and the many ovens and microwaves made it easy for our group to prepare a huge meal with ease. The grill outside has a gas line running into the house, so you never have to worry if your tank is low. The plates and cups are easily organized and you have a wealth of fine stemware to enjoy.

The sauna and steam shower were wonderful additions and were simple to use and clear directions were provided for us. Some members of our group just wouldn't get out of them! =D The roof mounted hot tub is fantastic. After sunset, we laid in it and watched shooting stars for hours.

The beds are exceptionally comfortable in every room, even the cots downstairs. We were thinking these beds were an afterthought and that they'd be no thicker than a stick of gum, but not so! They're nicer than most hotel beds and great for just flopping and watching some TV.

Speaking of TV, the theatre room downstairs is excellent. Huge leather chairs and couches that just swallow you up and a (seriously) giant TV to relax with after you've skied or hiked yourself ragged in the snow. The room also has keg taps (Make sure you ask for them to be activated!) and an old time popcorn maker that turned some of our guests into giddy children watching it work.

The owner was also courteous and made sure that we got in alright and that everything was working for us and went over every issue I had at the end to make sure the next guests wouldn't have a problem with it.

I don't know what else there is to say. It's a great place for an absolutely reasonable price. I'm definitely coming back and I'll miss it all the time I'm gone.

Outdated Decor but Plenty of Space

  • 2 of 5

I recently stayed at this rental for a family reunion in January 2014. We had 8 adults and 12 children and had plenty of space for every family to have their own section of the house and each family was able to have their own bathroom (total bonus!). The house is also very centrally located so it is only minutes from grocery shopping and less than 15 minutes to get to the casinos. Now to get to the not so attractive features of this rental. The overall cleanliness of this home is poor. The carpets are at least 20 years old and it shows! The property didn't seem to be vacuumed or dusted anytime recently and we found numerous objects (beads, puzzle pieces, other tid-bits) hiding in the 70s style white shag carpet. Some of the rooms are recently renovated with things like a fancy shower with more knobs than I knew what to do with....other rooms were in desperate need of an update! For a group our size, some families stayed in luxury and others stayed in totally outdated spaces. It would be nice to see some basic updates in all the rooms so large groups that are equally splitting costs have the same sort of experience. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and this house has plenty of space. I you don't mind a little dust and outdated decor then this place is a great option for a large group get together.
