The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the penthouse. The location was perfect for skiing and night time entertainment.

The beds were comfortable and the loft was spacious. We couldn’t ask for a better experience:)

The general facility, and the location, we are perfect for our group of eight 60-year-old men.

  • 4 of 5

A couple of notes on the facility:

1. The elevator code system is very inconsistent. 75% of the time the code would only get you to the third floor, where you would have to punch it in another one to five times to actually get to the fourth floor.

2. The upper room was extremely warm, as was the master bedroom right next to the kitchen. I know there's no air conditioning, but in the summer some fans to keep the air circulating in those rooms would be appropriate.

3. Some sort of a dolly, or hotel style "Bellman's Trolly" would help very much to get luggage, ice chests, etc. up to the penthouse from the parking lot.

4. If there is Wi-Fi, access code to that should be listed on the information left on the table just outside of the elevator, in the entry hall.

5. It would help for there to be some sort of instructions about how much cleanup is to be done before departing. Are beds to be stripped, dishes to be done, towels to be put in the washer, etc.?

6. BBQ lighting instructions should be posted out by the grill.

7. TV and sound system operating instructions should be posted at the AV station.

8. In the left side kitchen sink, the plug, or stopper, is somehow jammed in the drain. That needs to be repaired.

In any case, those are our observations. Again, in general, this was just what the doctor ordered for our group, and Katie Burke was a great help in making the whole experience work for us!!!

Amazing Time

  • 5 of 5

My sister got married at the Edgewood and all of the wedding guests stayed in hotels to the right and left of the penthouse . The penthouse was in the perfect spot to have people come over for lunch or dinner With plenty of room to spare at the big table. Sitting on the outside deck (not pictured anywhere) was super enjoyable at night and we got to watch fireworks coming from the direction of Harvey's .

The Penthouse was exactly as I expected from the photos and description . My family is still raving about how amazing it was . So thank you !

The back entry from the loading dock felt a little funny at first , but I quickly learned I could enter from the shopping center side . Also entering the elevator code took a little getting used to , but just remembering not to go too fast did the trick.

Buckingham was great and very responsive! I admit the very detailed contract initially intimated me, But no worries as they got the deposit back to me right away. I'm sure their contract has gotten bigger over time due to renters who don't know how to respect others properties .

Great Location...aside from street noise and smell

  • 3 of 5

We loved this place except for a few things. 1) The master bedroom that is on the street can be loud at night. The music and street sounds can be heard until the wee hours of the night. 2) As you have red in previous reviews the smell from the restaurant below dose come up into the unit and you can see a haze in the unit at times. Also yes the elevator does smell bad! The carpet needs to be removed and put hard flooring down. This would make the elevator much easier to keep clean and to keep the smell out.

Centralized South Tahoe--no need to drive

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous and spacious! Walk to casino, grocery store and beach. Fifth bedroom has skylight window in back hallway to full laundry room! We had two adults in there they had a Queen bed plus it fit a Queen air mattress that we brought. Kitchen had everything we needed including crockpot and blender. Master is room next to living room great double shower! Lots of space for ten people! Balcony has table w six chairs and just so nice of a space. Extra cars parked at casino was pretty close no hassle! Only thing--- bring febreeze for elevator. They need to replace carpet in there it stinks! Restaurant below bringing carts of dirty dishes I think that's what is in the carpet. You don't really smell it in rental but going in out It's a bit smelly. Great rental aside from that you cannot beat the location!!!!
