Perfect location away from the hustle and bustle but not too far.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location away from the hustle and bustle but not too far. The owner was extremely apologetic of previous people that had been here and had left the place dirty even though when we got here it was superclean. The cleaning crew apparently is magical. Loved the stay!

Riverside, CA

Vintage 70's home that had everything we needed + for our home base while exploring the area.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very friendly and were easy to work with. The communication with them was excellent. The home is a bit dated (trapped in the 70's), but we felt very at home and very comfortable. All appliances worked well and the house was very well stocked with games, books, dishes, blankets etc. The house was an excellent home base for us while we explored Lake Tahoe and Virginia City. We had plenty of room and privacy (there was only 3 of us). I especially appreciated having a garage to put our cars in. Of note...the master bedroom has an open floor plan, including the bathroom area (toilet, jacuzzi and shower) which does not leave for any privacy with extra people in the room (it has a king bed, two bunk beds -one with a double bed on the bottom and another double bed. Only a shower curtain separates the toilet from the rest of the room. The other two rooms had a queen sized bed in them. The back yard was spacious and had plenty of seating for extra people, a BBQ, Jacuzzi and swing set. We really enjoyed the blue jay's, rabbits and squirrels that came by to visit. We would definitely stay here again, but I would limit it to 6-8 people myself.

Great location close to lake and groceries

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great location close to the lake, a grocery store and a pharmacy. The layout of the house is unique and fun- there's a big jacuzzi tub and shower/steam combo in the master bath, plus a table and chairs and a tv, and a small room behind it with bunk beds and an air hockey table. We loved using the hot tub on the deck after a long hike- it felt like coming home to a spa. We ran into a few hiccups during our stay due to the previous renters not following the rules, but the owner was very responsive and he showed up personally to correct things. We definitely want to book this house again next year.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean & comfortable and we got everything we needed during our stay. The location was perfect as it was very close to shops and supermarket. Our kids loved the air hockey games, the swing & slide and of course, the hot tub! We appreciated for your quick responses. It was actually very pleasant and made everything easy since it was first time for us to rent a vacation house.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. We will absolutely come back again!

Clean house, good space

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and clean, there were so many beds we ended up having spares. It was very convenient that there was dishes, pots, and spices available for our use there. We had a really good time there.

Perfect - Family and/or Groups

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a Vacation Rental. Mike made this process very easy for me. Anytime I had a question or inquiry about the home or location, he was very quick to a response.

The home is very spacious. Perfect for a family or large group. Ceiling fans in each room, large living room space, dining room and kitchen. Each bedroom is decent in size with a dresser to put your belongings in. The beds are rather comfortable. The master bedroom was huge!! This is where the majority of the bed space is. The air hockey table was a hit with our group of girls. All of the extra amenities in the home worked. Dishwasher, Washer, Dryer, Hot Tub etc...

The home was perfectly centralized for our needs. Timber-cove was a nice enjoyable walk. There is a fun little Tiki Bar there. Safeway, inside Starbucks and CVS is within perfect walking distance. We found a cute little bakery and Mexican food place also within walking distance.

If we head up to Tahoe again, we'd definitely inquire about Mike and Judy's home availability.

Thank you for making our Tahoe home experience and home so comfortable.
