About Hector Papa

My wife and I live in North Valley. We love the outdoors, traveling, and we both enjoy spending time with our daughters and grandson.

Hector Papa purchased this house in 1995

Why Hector Papa chose Truckee

My wife and I visited Tahoe Donner in 1995 during a business trip, and we fell in love with the area. We were amazed by all the recreational opportunities we found there. This became our second home in August of 1995, and we have spent great summer and ski vacations with friends and family. We began renting our Truckee home in February 2013. Since then, our home has been visited by guests from the nearby Bay Area or other states. We have received positive feedback from all of them. We are proud of our home and strive to provide the best services. Keeping in mind what our guests would like to have in a vacation home, we are always adding and improving our home's amenities. We maintain communication with our guests and provide immediate responses to their questions. So far, all of our visitors have been satisfied with their stay. We are happy to say that having a vacation rental has been a rewarding experience.

What makes this house unique

Our guests are pleased with our home's relaxing atmosphere, floor plan, organization, and neatness.

We strive on providing the best services to our guests, and are always improving and adding amenities to our cabin. In addition, Tahoe Donner offers great amenities for the entire family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for another (our third!) stay in your lovely house. We love staying here. It's clean, quiet, beautiful and cozy.

Beautiful Truckee Property in a GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, the pictures don't do this house justice. My friends and I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home over President's Day weekend and it was just amazing. It's hard to describe, but the home has beautiful floors, big living space, fireplace, and 4 big bedrooms. The master has a huge walk in closet and private bathroom. There's a foosball table inside and a large dining room table. The location is also amazing. It's just a couple miles to downtown Truckee, ~15 minutes to Northstar, ~20 minutes to Crystal Bay. Hector responds quickly and is super friendly. We'll definitely be back if the house is still available.

Exceptionally clean and comfortable Tahoe Donner retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Hector and Ana's Tahoe Donner cabin over New Years'. It was a multi family trip with 6 young kids. The home was exceptionally clean (hardwood floors throughout!) with very comfortable amenities. The layout of the home was perfect for my 10 yr old son and his friends. The boys' room was off to the side of the house and had its own fuze ball table. You'd close the door and couldn't hear them! The room had 2 single beds and more than enough room for an aerobed or two. The three other bedrooms were nicely spaced out in the home so that when staying with other families, you didn't feel like you were on top of one another.

The home was beautifully kept and the common areas were comfortable and lent to a lot of talking, pop corn eating and general fun for kids and adults. Hector and Ana were no-fuss owners and a pleasure to work with. They answered questions promptly and returned our security deposit same day after check out. We would gladly stay at their home again in the future with no hesitation.

Tranquile and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Put away the cell phones, ipads, computers, grab a nice cool drink and retreat to the spacious, shaded deck to enjoy a relaxing evening under the Truckee sky! We loved staying at your mountain home for our family reunion. The layout and furnishings are comfortable, modern and inviting. The location is great, easy access to Truckee or Tahoe, but off the beaten path. Spacious enough to entertain extended family visitors in the great room, with a floor plan that affords privacy for the guest rooms. All the amenities are there to make one's stay memorable. Thank you! We'll be back.

Beautiful Cabin in Tahoe Donner

We were enchanted by this beautiful cabin! the floor plan is fantastic, it is a very quality home with beautiful wood floor all throughout and very tasteful furniture and decoration. We would highly recommend this place for anybody that is looking for a really nice, clean, warm and functional cabin in Tahoe Donner. Kids loved the foosball table! Hector and Ana are gracious and hospital homeowners, making sure we have everything we needed during our stay. Five Stars!!!! Thank you again from Brad and Sophie
