Quiet and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin in Tahoe off the Keys. We enjoyed our stay here. The house is cosy and comfortable and well stocked with dishes and condiments. It was nice that there was also shampoo and body wash in the bathrooms and plenty of towels. The street is very quiet and peaceful considering it's just off of the keys! The beds were very comfortable and my daughter had fun on the pinball machine. If you are staying here you might want to note that there is no garage to store bikes or boards. So you will have to keep them locked on your car. Overall we loved this little place. The owner was also very prompt when I called him about the barbecue utensils, so that was a plus knowing if we had an issue he would respond immediately. Thumbs up for this cabin.

Had a great time in a cozy house. Would go back again!

  • 5 of 5

Upon checking in, my family and I felt very comfortable. The house was very clean, well equipped and safe. The heater was great too. We didn't know what the interior warmth was going be like since we went up during a very cold time of year. As soon as we turned the heater up, we felt the whole house getting warm. We'd love to come back and stay another time.

Owner's Response: Our vacationer, Nhat, used 8 rolls of toilet paper for a 2 day stay. They left the downstairs toilet clogged with #2 and left the cabin. They also left electronic equipment which I promptly and courteously mailed back. My cleaning person complained that it took her 2 hours of plunging before clearing the toilet and asks for $35 for the extra time. I cancelled the plumber who wanted $200 to come out. I refunded Nhat all but $35. I did not charge him the $13 it cost me to ship back his electronics equipment. In 7 years on VRBO, we finally got a bad vacationer. It's rare to have a vacationer not treats your home like their own.

Perfect Tahoe Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay! The first thing we noticed when we walked in was how clean, quaint, and well-equipped the rental was. The decor was so cozy and inviting and we were immediately disappointed we weren't staying for more than two nights. We knew right away that we would be coming back. Jeff was organized and communicative and was fast to get back to me. We had some issues with figuring out the TV/DVD/Streaming Internet because the instructions in the binder didn't match up with the current setup, but I emailed Jeff and he called me back in less than five minutes of me sending the email. We were up and running in no time. The beds were all very comfortable and there were plenty of towels and blankets for everyone. Be aware that one of the three bedrooms is actually a large loft with four twin beds. This is not a downside for me, as it's absolutely perfect for kids, but if you are expecting to travel with three couples and want the privacy of a third bedroom, you won't have that. The place felt fresh and clean and I barely saw one speck of dust or cobweb. I also liked that there was a fresh kitchen sponge at the sink and little bottles of shampoo and body wash in case we forgot ours (we did). The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed to prepare all of our meals, and even the dishes, glassware and silverware were nice quality. The grill looked really nice even though we didn't use it. There were bicycles as well. The bookshelves were full of games, puzzles, books, and DVDs to enjoy. It really felt like we were staying in a friend or family member's cabin. We particularly enjoyed seeing Jeff's beautiful artwork as well. All in all, a perfect stay. We look forward to going back soon!

Very Nice Experience

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is kept in very good condition; it is up to date with lots of amenities. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need and the grill was brand new, making it convenient to eat in. The bathrooms were clean, with plenty of clean towels and essential toiletries. The upstairs bedrooms are perfect for kids, especially the loft area. Netflix was a nice bonus! The area is conveniently located with lots of places to eat nearby, and even a wonderful local coffeehouse within walking distance. It is in a neighborhood with lots of cabins close to one another, but curtains make it easy to secure privacy and let in natural light too.

Darling Tahoe cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Jeff's Tahoe cabin. It was clean, homey and really well-stocked, for ex. kitchen staples, shampoos, lots of blankets, etc. Everything was in working order, the beds were comfy. The kids loved the loft bedroom. The whole place just had a great feel to it and was very well-cared for. I highly recommend it. Thank you Jeff!
