Great Winter Vacation Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, secluded and plenty of privacy. Very dog friendly. We had 5 total guests, Wife, 13 year old son and my parents. Kitchen is spacious, very well supplied and open to entertaining. Dave, the owner, gave us a complete walkthrough and explained all the accommodations, which came in very handy as the house has a lot of upgrades and special features (steam showers, hot tub etc.). He also made an emergency visit when we found the kitchen faucet spray nozzle was broken, he had it fixed in 2 minutes. He knew all the great local locations for my sons winterentertainment. The house has two sets of bunk beds, which my son loved. House had great TV reception, and Dave keeps the walkways shoveled and safe for all, in case you want to explore the vast scenery.

We really enjoyed the location, the size of the house, and the large amount of property. We will definitely stay here again. Dave also was able to provide us early check-in and called us up the night before we left and offered us late check-out also, at no charge. He also offered to help me load a heavy ice chest. Great hospitality. He and his wife do live right next door to the house, but they were rarely seen and added to the experience rather than detract. We enjoyed visiting with them, and can tell they are dog lovers and made our Beagle and Jack Russell feel welcome.

Looking forward to spending another visit here, maybe in the Summer when we can take a trip on his charter boat! Thank you Leal's for a great visit and for your hospitality.

Delightful family White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people (family and friends) and 2 dogs with plenty of room for a wonderful Christmas gathering. The owner (Dave) plowed and shoveled us out after a big snowstorm so that we could go out skiing/snowboarding. The property is beautiful! The home is nestled in the pine trees, the panorama of windows provided incredible views. We saw a woodpecker and everyday we saw this rabbit running around on the snow. The hot tub was perfect after a cold day in the snow. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped for cooking large meals. The furniture was comfortable and nice with plenty of space for all of us. Cell phone reception was practically non existent which was not a problem since wifi was available along with a house phone and a TV with a plethora of channels. The owner (Dave) was accommodating, available, yet unobtrusive. We had plenty of privacy. We would love to see this place in the summer and would definitely stay again!!!!

Labor Day Weekend Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and were met by the owner who walked us through the house, showing us all the features, it is the best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in a rental. Plenty of room for the 10 people that we took. Set up badminton in the back yard and spent several days hanging out with family. The surprising walk to the back of the property through the trees is very nice only to find the private park-like area along the Truckee River where we spent a good deal of our time hanging out, fishing and playing with the dog (who loved his stay also)

We will be back!

Spacious Tahoe Charm, Perfect in Everyway

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this Tahoe Gem in July 2015. My wife and two boys, ages 15 & 12 truly enjoyed at our stay at the Leal's vacation home. The home is spacious, four bedrooms and sleeps 12. We have rented many homes in the Tahoe area over the past 20 years and one of my wife's pet peeves is cleanliness. This home was immaculate in every way. The owner met us on arrival and guided us through every aspect of how everything works and what was available. The living area was large and comfortable, the bedrooms were comfortable with TV's, with premium cable in every room. There is a hottub on the deck that was very clean and worked well. The yard is very large and we enjoyed owner provided Croquet and Badminton. One of the best aspects is the home is located on the Upper Truckee river, where my boys caught crawfish and swam in the swimming hole and played in the water. Unlike many Vacation Homes in Tahoe, the nights are stone quiet and very peaceful without all the traffic and related noise. If you are looking for that old Tahoe charm and experience, where the property truly exhibits an owners pride of ownership check this property out. We will be back

Will be coming back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property, the beautiful pictures posted don't even do it justice. We came as a cousins trip with a total of 12 people, the house was the perfect size to accommodate a party that size. Dave and Kathy were amazing and were always available to assist. We all felt as if we were staying in a private park with beautifully landscaped grounds to the amazing views. We spent a lot of time by the river enjoying meals and relaxing to the sound of the gurgling water of the river, awesome scenery and perfect weather. We will be returning next year for sure! Hats off to both Kathy and David for building and maintaining this amazing property and thank you for sharing it with all of us! It is a true gem.
