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.

Kevin was the ultimate host. He was very flexible, understanding and an overall amazing host.
Large house in a great location
We enjoyed our stay! The house was large, clean, and well-stocked. The only downside was that we had issues with the internet, and there is little to no cell service in the house. This may not be an issue for many vacationers, but some in our group were planning to work remotely and were unable to. Other than that, the house was great!
The guest let me know that there were up to 5 people using the internet at the same time. When band width is divided by that many users at the same time, the internet service will be challenged at any home. This is the first time anyone has mentioned an issue with the internet service, so I must conclude that the problem was the number of simultaneous users and unfortunately out of my control.
We had a wonderful stay and we highly recommend this house. We had a family gathering for our son’s high school graduation, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is very private, and very comfortable. The kids loved the game room! Great proximity to Squaw Valley, Truckee, and Tahoe City, and the Truckee River is a short walk away. Definitely follow the instructions regard bear safety....we did see a momma and cub bear strolling around the woods nearby. A perfect summer getaway.
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!
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.
