About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife��s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Spacious and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental close to Heavenly. We primarily were looking for a dog friendly place, with a hot tub, and close of the ski lifts. This fit within our budget. It was a very large place with two dining rooms and two living rooms. Definitely for big groups. The bathrooms were dated, but functional. The hot tub was great except the temperature didn't seem accurate. It was scalding HOT! We had to cool it down with some icy cold water because it didn't seem to lower in temperature at all. That was the only hiccup for this great place. I would definitely recommend to furry dog owners and friends.

Drove 12 hours through traffic to find out "the furnace went out" 1 hour before my arrival. Was then placed in a much smaller condo, to which we arrived at 3AM, and the lockbox code wasn't working. My husband and our two kids slept in the car freezing for 3 hours! finally Vacasa called with a backup code. Definitely would do no stars If possible. If your aware that your home will be occupied by a family who has prepaid, you should at least make sure all things are functionally working before their arrival! Smh!

Terrible customer service! No heat in the house

  • 1 of 5

We showed up and the house was 34 degrees! The heater was broken and they didn't fix it the entire 4 night stay. Their solution was space heaters and told us to look for a new place to stay! What?! Who does that. Then they never got back to us after the second day there. It's been two weeks now and I am trying to get a refund and they have said things like "we have not received your request". The downstairs never got above 50 degrees and all the showers are upstairs where it prob never reached 40. Vacasa has not been a pleasant company to deal with and I wouldn't recommend booking through them.

Nasty in regard to hygiene beside the heater not working whatsoever. Who lives like this?

  • 1 of 5

I am not sure what type of people rent this place, my husband and I are college educated and have traveled the world. We come from Silicon Valley and neither the house and its inside met our expectations or the money we paid for it. My overall impression was a huge lack of hygiene, there were dirty bedsheets and towels on top of the washer, humid and smelly, the sofas needed a change as they are stained and very 90's, trash has not being picked up and the beds some of them had only the fitted sheets but not the flat sheets, they were over washed, therefore, they were rough. The heater was not working, it was disconnected and they knew; and they had left individual heater which will never heat up the entire home. I will never use this service again as I believe that they should have an inspector to check the house before placing them up for rent. My brother and my two nieces (5 and 7) were with me and the lady who answered our call was rude and did not offer any help. We had to move to a different place at 9:00 when finally someone called us from "Oregon" . Awful experience, I will not use it again.

Dog friendly, large house for a group of people not looking for anything fancy

  • 4 of 5

Bedrooms were large and had adequate space for 8 of us plus a dog. Back yard is fenced in for the dog, although very snowy so we mostly went out front. The only shovel for the driveway was in the back yard in a snow bank, so if we hadn't gone out to look at the hot tub, we wouldn't have found it and it is a very useful amenity in the Tahoe winter. Also, the hot tub did not work, master toilet was clogged on arrival, the master bed headboard was not attached to the bed and hit the wall with the slightest movement, and the master bedroom door had no door knob - we emailed about the hot tub and toilet but received no response. Other than these flaws, the house was great for what we wanted - lots of space to hang out and play games. The trashcan had no bag in it but we used small grocery bags, but then could not take it to the bear locker like asked because it was not all contained in one large close-able bag. I would stay here again with friends, despite the cons. It was perfect size for us 4 couples and was great that everyone got their own room. With the extra toilet downstairs, we didn't really need the master toilet to work.
