Great home for Weekend Reuinion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a guys reunion weekend (every year we rent a house somewhere new) the first week of April. To help set the scene there were 13 guys in all ranging between ages 30-36. The headline if you don't want to read is that this is an awesome house that I would recommend to anyone interested.

We ended up cooking a lot and then going out near the border at night. There are a few things we loved about the house including

1) the game room. It's the reason we picked the house and it did not disappoint. It had ping pong, pool, air hockey, foosball, and a pinball machine (this got VERY competitive). We did not ski, but were not bored during the day because there was so much to do

2) Jacuzzi. It worked really well and a jacuzzi in the middle of snow just feels like a right of passage if you're going to be in Tahoe

3) Clean towels, carpet, sheets, etc. This is not a given in other rentals so I figure I should call it out!

4) very convenient market at the bottom of the hill. We ended up back there at least once a day picking up food/drinks etc. Really helpful to have this so convenient

A couple watchouts that people might find helpful -

1) If you plan on "going out" in Tahoe and don't want to drive, expect about a $50 Uber each way. Was not prohibitively expensive for a big group like ours, but it's not cheap either

2) Dart board is not really functional. Doubt that is a make or break issue but figured I'd bring it up. As you can see this is still a 5-star review so clearly not a major issue

Thank you Eric and team for a great weekend.

Owner's Response: Jimmy, thank you for the detailed review. So glad your group had such a nice time at the home and in amazing Tahoe. We always take guest feedback very seriously, so I checked with a local cab company from the house to Stateline, NV. They quoted $35 (which we have found to be common), and Uber quoted $31.65 for a regular car and $50 for the "XL" larger car. Secondly, although we regularly buy new darts to make sure they are in good condition, we just ordered a new Viper Electronic Dartboard to ensure our game room continues to be one of the best in Tahoe. Thanks for your feedback, and come again soon! Erik Maliska, Owner PeakTahoeRentals

Amazing rental and customer service

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our long weekend at this rental and it was one of the best ones we have stayed in over 13 seasons of coming to Tahoe. The difference this year is we had a baby and dog in tow but still wanted a great place for a big group of friends (with no other babies - yet!). This rental had everything and the layout was perfect: a big master for us and the rest of the bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen was spacious and the game room had everything! Loved the multiple deck levels and the dog loved the yard. What sets this apart are the details - sometimes you rent a great house but the kitchen is bare or you need to buy your own soap and TP. This place had all the essentials and then some - there was even baby shampoo in the master bathroom and the plugs already had those child covers. Also Erik was amazing and communication was great! Would love to stay here again. Mary

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our group. Beautiful home, very clean. Close to skiing, sledding and other winter activities. Lots of space for everyone to spread out and have their own room. Pack and play was available and set up for us which was nice. Having a washer, dryer and garage to park the cars in was great. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans and kitchen items to cook with. Only complaint were that some of the beds were a little stiff.
