Great House and Awesome Location in Tahoe City. Very Clean and well stocked and cared for.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and my brother in law stayed here for 5 nights during the week of the 4th of July. We couldn't have found a better place to stay for everything we wanted. Location, awesome.

This house is located approximately 0.7 miles to Tahoe City. We took our bikes and NEVER had to use our car, even to go to grab a bite to eat at all the great places that Tahoe City has to offer. There is a place called Sunnyside Restaurant which is located about 2 miles from the house, if that.....that serves lunch and dinner out on the deck which overlooks Lake Tahoe. I give this restaurant a 10....we also rode our bikes there to avoid any traffic.

This house is located in the best location I have ever stayed at in Tahoe City. It is surrounded by trees and has a beautiful wrap around deck and barbeque. The location of the house was extremely quiet which is always a plus. The only thing we had to bring here was ourselves, food, and our personal items. The owner keeps this place fully stocked of towels, pillows, sheets, paper towels, silverware, dishes, toilet paper, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent....it was amazing!!!!!! The owner also keeps this house incredible clean, which is a huge thing for us.

We were even able to ride our bikes to the fireworks which were set off in Tahoe City, over the water. We did not have to fight the crowds with driving and trying to find parking. We ate at another great restaurant called Jake's on the Lake, which has a grassy area for people/customers to watch the fireworks, it was awesome. There is also a public beach called Commons Beach which is also very close to the house.

The owner was fantastic to work with. He even called us once we arrived to make sure everything was to our satisfaction!!!! He is/was so kind and so easy to work with not to mention very fair on the price for everything we were getting.

There is an attached garage where we were able to store all of our rafting gear and bikes which was also a great thing. On the deck, which was recently re-done (re-surfaced, the wood) was a very nice patio table and plenty of chairs for those nights that we barbequed or ate outside. The brand new stainless steel refrigerator located in the kitchen was also a great surprise and had more room than we needed both in the refrigerator part and in the large freezer.

I cannot say enough great things about this house. We immediately booked it again for next year and I am counting the days!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!

Super Comfy

  • 5 of 5

House was very comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything we needed for an easy stay. Close to paved bike trail and to zipline/ropes course at Granlibakken, both super for kids. Owner was easy to work with and very nice. Thank you again.

Much needed R&R

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful experience in this home. Before I ever made it into the house I fell in love with the deck. This is the type of deck that inspires people to sit and enjoy each others company. There is so much room to sit on this wrap around deck with its built in wooden benches, and it is surrounded by trees so it almost feels like you are in a tree house! The kitchen is clean with lots of counter space and done with a lot of great wood cabinets and flooring and it has a great bay window that looks out onto this awesome deck! It is perfect for creating meals to share with your friends and family whether you eat at the large dining table or out on (yep you guessed it...) the deck where there is also a picnic table. There was a ton of room for the kids, the wife, and even my mother in law to spread out between the 4 bedrooms but I was surprised to see everyone hanging out together despite the Wifi. Normally Wifi would result in my kids being sucked into cyber land but not this time! The rooms were cozy and clean. The kids loved the rack room downstairs (that's what we called it because of the bunk beds) It was an extremely short drive to dining and a relatively short drive to the local state parks. Would love to come back and explore some more!

Summer Days and Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely LOVED my time in Tahoe, and I would have likely gotten out and spent more time at the water (which was the intended target) if it had not been such a relaxing and charming atmosphere at this house! The large deck was so inviting for curling up with a great book and and a cup of tea. I simply felt at home here. In the living room I was enchanted with the custom etched fireplace glass I can't wait to go back when it is chilly enough to warrant a small fire!! My whole family was in love with the basement room. This is probably a best bet for kids with it's built in bunk beds and large built in canopy type bed, but I have to be honest, it completely inspired my inner child and I was ready to displace my own children and build a fort! This whole place was full of magic for our family. Me and my husband were able to sleep wonderfully in one of the main floor rooms and my mother took the large loft room with it's own bathroom upstairs.The owner is wonderful and full of knowledge. You can tell he truly loves his community and takes pride in his home. Next time (and there will be a next time!) we will be bringing more kids and staying a few more days. The location is so perfect to let the kids wander and also to trip through town and down to the local beaches and parks. I would recommend Sugar Pine Point if you get chance!

Awesome Place; Awesome Host

  • 5 of 5

This house is terrific and the owner even more so. Likely it makes little difference to the average renter that the landlord might recommend a biography of e.e.cummings or pretty much anything by Saul Bellow. But, think about it. People who can do those things are likely to have great houses. The best idea is to rent the house then invite the owner to come and entertain you.

Very disappointing family vacation because of VRBO ad misrepresentation

  • 1 of 5

The VRBO ad describes this house with Patio, outdoor grill, wifi and a short walk to the beach.

I would have never rented this place had I known the outdoor grill was a small portable grill tethered to a post down a flight of stairs from the deck and 50 ft from the house. When I complained to the owner he stated the best thing I could do was to grill in shifts to accommodate my family of 8. Really?

A patio was also advertised; unfortunately, the only piece of furniture was a tattered old table and a built in bench on the edge of the deck. How can a family of 8 enjoy a patio without furniture?

We had also planned on spending time at the beach, and the idea of a short walk to get there was perfect. However, we discovered the short walk was 1 plus mile, so we ultimately had to drive each time we went to the beach.

The ad also stated wifi. It worked intermittently the 1st day of our stay then stopped working for the duration of our stay.

We had planned this trip for months and planned on relaxing on the deck and grilling every night during our 4 night/5 day stay.

I would have never rented this place had I known there wasn't an appropriate grill for a family of 8, or the distance to the beach was over a mile. I have a family of 8 and we plan yearly vacations. This was a very disappointing vacation that could have been avoided if the ad had represented the rental property accurately.

Owner's Response: I thank this guest for staying. The barbeque is on the driveway for safety. All other comments are false and are contradicted by all other reviews. He tried to get $350 out of me. As a host I was very disappointed.

Map

The house's location makes it the gateway to the West Shore’s unique beauty including: by car in 5 minutes Blackwood canyon with a spectacular hike giving views of Lake Tahoe and Desolation wilderness and then another 5 minutes to Sugar Pine Point one of Lake Tahoe's most beautiful state parks with miles of protected wooded shoreline where you can swim or kayak in the crystal clear water or picnic midst the lawn and trees. At the houses doorstep are adventurous mountain biking trails leading to high altitude meadows with vernal pools.
