About Kevin Dill

We are architects in San Francisco and designed and built this house in 2006. Raising two boys in the city, we have always known the importance of getting away to the wonderful outdoors that the Tahoe area has to offer. We started the boys skiing, fishing and hiking when they were 2 years old and they still enjoy the same activities today as college students. With the boys now away at school, we have the opportunity to open our home so that other families can partake in the same enjoyment that we have had over the years.

Kevin Dill purchased this House in 2006

Why Kevin Dill chose Placer County

This property is conveniently and centrally located. About equidistant to Truckee and Lake Tahoe (Tahoe City), and only 1.5 miles to the Squaw Valley entrance, this location is ideal. The house is designed for families or goups and is very spacious. It has been designed in the Tahoe venacular and built majestically into the hillside to capture the view. Top of the line kitchen appliances and large dining room create a great opportunity for family and friends to dine together.

                                                              Amazing Experience!

                                                              Nelly C.San Jose, California

                                                              I rented the house for my birthday weekend with friends and family. There were 14 adults and one dog, and still plenty of room for us all! The house is very spacious: the bedrooms, living room, kitchen, rec room, and garage. The rec room is so much fun, there is a poker table, ping-pong table, tv, and lots of board games to choose from.We definitely had ping-pong tournaments going on. Our favorite part of the house had to be the beautiful enormous window in the living room; beautiful scenery of the mountains and trees. In addition, Kevin was a great host! He would respond within 24hrs and is very approachable for questions. His house instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Safe to say we all fell in love with this house, everyone enjoyed their stay, and we can't wait to come back in the future!

                                                              Family vacation near Truckee River

                                                              Our family spent a 2eek in early August 2017 in this house with a lovely view of the mountains. It is located along the Truckee River so we went floating on tubes, hiking, and biking along the river. Grocery store, restaurants are less than 30 min away. This 5BR home had plenty of room for our family of 7 adulfs and 3 cnhildren. The ping-pong table in the basement was nice and we grilled on the deck. In the basement are 2 bunk beds in a closet and a single bed in the corner that could be used teenagers. When we arrived, one of the bedrooms had dog urine on the carpet and the room smelled really bad, we called the owner and he suggested that we clean the area with vinegar and baking soda which we did but the urine smell still lingered. A few days later he finally sent a carpet cleaning company to treat the room. Kevin the owner responded promptly to our texts. Other than that we enjoyed our stay in this home. We did see a bear one morning outside the kitchen window and it left paw prints on the cars!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Getting our first 3-star review is very disappointing, since we pride ourselves on providing the best rental experience possible. The guest who submitted the review arrived Saturday late afternoon. The previous guest departed the same day and without them knowing it, their dog peed on the carpet. Our cleaners did their best, but are not experts in this area. In addition, we granted the arriving guest the courtesy of an early check-in, so time was limited. It was impossible to get a carpet cleaner to come on Saturday night or Sunday, so I searched the web and found that white vinegar and baking soda was a good remedy, both of which we had in the pantry. The guest seemed very understanding and cooperative with the remedy and it proved to be successful. The carpet cleaners arrived on Monday and professionally extracted the urine and the guest stayed through Friday. I did my best, gave them a credit for the inconvenience and I don't know what more I could have done. The previous guest was very apologetic.

                                                              House is well built. Ground level rec.Room is really fun for kids

                                                              Our group of 11 (6 adults, 5 kids) spent 3 wonderful days and wished we could have stayed longer. The house is beautiful inside and out and we enjoyed relaxing on the deck where we could listen to the waterfall and grill out. There is plenty of room inside for everyone to spread out when needed or come together in the huge great room/kitchen/dining area. Kids loved playing ping pong and all the board games provided in the downstairs rec room. The house is ideally located a short drive between Truckee and Tahoe City and the village in Squaw Valley is only 5 minutes away. It was also great to have access to the empty 2 car garage with remote. Kevin the owner was very helpful and responsive and made sure our stay went well.

                                                              Awesome get away home
