Great Location. Walk to the lake. SLT Rec Center is right around the corner with swimming pool, basketball courts, playground, weight room, and ice skating. Right down the street from Bijou Community Park. About 1/4 mile from Safeway, Tahoe Bowl, and Bijou Golf Course. Fenced back yard with a nice brick patio area where you can just kick back and relax.
We had a wonderful time at you cabin. It is very cozy and we felt right at home. We will definitetly be returning. Thank you so much
This place seemed decent & affordable so I booked it for the 4th of July weekend. I originally deal with Lou, one of the owners, & paid for deposit & fees in advance. Lou said he would email me the lock box combo a day before my scheduled arrival date. When that date come, I emailed Lou several times to remind him about the lock box, but got no response. So I make phone calls, after several frantic calls, I finally got a hold of Cindy (the other owner) around 10pm. After hearing Cindy & Lou yelling back & forth in the back ground Cindy finally read the combination to me to which I repeated to confirm.
After a long 10 hour drive I finally arrived & tried to open the Lock Box and it did not work! I called Lou & Cindy numerous time and left them numerous messages but never got a return call. After 1 1/2 hours sitting in front of the property not knowing what to do, a neighbor walked by and asked if we're trying to get in, I told them yes, and they told us they have spare key to the property, because they do cleaning on that property.
The property itself was decent, but just like all rental properties with high traffic, the carpet wasn't that clean with numerous spots, but we did not let that bother us. On our departure date, we cleaned the property pretty well before we leave to insure full refund of deposit.
Upon returning from the trip, I contacted Lou & mentioned to him about the mishap with the Lock Box & told him we had a good time overall. I was willing to overlook the situation with him not providing the combination in a timely manner & that he wouldn't return my calls when the lock box wouldn't open. To which Lou never once said "sorry" for then inconvenience, but simply "I mailed you your full refund"
Well, that was good enough for me, no harm no foul, until I got a call from Cindy a week later (before I receive my refund check) that she had canceled my refund check because there were "SPOTS" on the carpet and that I had 10 or even more people staying at the property.
She said that she had received complains from her neighbors that we were loud and had way too many people at the place.
We only had 6 family members all non-partying, non-drinking, and we all hit the sack by 10pm tired from all day sight seeing! I tried to explain that to her and offered evidence to proof otherwise but she sarcastically rejected it with her hideous laugh.
