Our house is located in a quiet, prestigious area of Tahoe Donner. Both of our neighbors are full time residents. I only rent to responsible families who will respect our neighbors and their property.

Hands down the best value in Tahoe Donner! Our house has private sleeping quarters for 11 people in five separate rooms (4 bedrooms and an office) in a very quiet and prestigious area of Tahoe Donner that backs up to a green belt and golf course.

All of our visitors have given us five star reviews and here are some of the things they have said about our place:

'Nicest house we've rented in Tahoe Donner'

'Best looking house on the block, hands down'

Beautiful, two story house on sunny wooded lot, with a flat, South facing driveway. The house has a two car garage with a level entrance way into the House. The living room, kitchen, and dining room are located on the first floor for easy access along with a queen bedroom and half bathroom.

The house is perfect for large families or two families traveling together and is both kid and senior friendly. There is a child safety gate at the top of the stairs and a large tub for bathing children in the master suite. The house has a covered entry way with only four steps into the house for easy access by seniors.

The sunken living room has ample seating with two full size couches (each couch seats 4 comfortably) that overlook the deck and green belt in the back yard. There is also a built-in gas fireplace with remote control, 55 inch LCD HD Smart TV, surround sound system, and a Blu-ray player as well.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with high-end cookware, gourmet coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, and gas stove along with a dining table that can accommodate up to ten people. There is additional bar seating at the kitchen counter and at the pass through window overlooking the sunken living room.

The back deck has a BBQ grill, couch with table/chairs and an umbrella to sit outside and enjoy the forest views. The house is located in a very private setting with a green belt in the back and plenty of trees nearby.

Upstairs there are three more bedrooms and an office along with two full bathrooms and a full size washer/dryer. The master suite is like its own retreat with a king bed, walk-in-closet, 42 inch LCD HD TV, and bathroom suite with huge spa tub and separate walk-in shower.

There is a queen bedroom upstairs and a kids room that has a full/twin bunk bed that sleeps three along with an over sized chair and a 30 inch LCD HD TV and DVD player.

There is a full bathroom upstairs along with a full size office that has a broadband router with Wi-Fi, and a twin bed with pull out twin trundle. All the beds are new with the finest linens and warm comforters for those chilly winter nights.

The house is equipped with the latest technology and has a 55 inch LCD HD Smart TV and Blu-ray player with wireless surround sound speakers. Play Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon movies, or surf the web and listen to music streaming on Pandora via the Smart TV. There are two MP3 music systems in the house, both have mini-jack cables and one also has Bluetooth access for your smart phone or iPod. The house is equipped with high speed broadband service (15M download) and 5GHz Wi-Fi.

For golfers, the house is located next to the 18th tee with easy access to the golf cart pathway. The Tahoe Donner golf course is beautifully designed and rated one of the best courses in Tahoe. The golf course is typically open from the end of May through mid October, so book now for your golfing vacation.

There are two pools at Tahoe Donner and a workout center and both are located very close to the house. There is also a tennis center and hiking trails located near the house.

Terrific Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Haley House is the perfect family house! Layout of kitchen and family room worked so well for everyone as well as all the comfortable bedrooms. Enjoyed morning coffee on the back porch looking out into the beautiful trees of Tahoe Donner and it was also really nice for BBQ's. Kitchen is equipped with all the essentials to make great meals and Truckee provides dining options. 20 minutes to NorthStar and Squaw Valley so great location. Process was very smooth with great communication with the owner.

Great for our family

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for our family. There was plenty of room for everyone. My husband and I came with our three kids (14, 9, and 2) and my parents. It was nice to have a bedroom and bathroom downstairs. There were TVs in many rooms so when we just needed to chill a bit between activities, there was plenty of space. The kitchen was organized and well stocked with dishes and cooking supplies and opens up to view the main living area. Another nice feature, that would be even better in the winter, is the ability to pull into the garage and unload into the house.

Awesome Tahoe rental

  • 5 of 5

I really have no bad things to say about my experience with Pete and his lovely Tahoe home. Pete was very responsive to my initial request to rent as well as subsequent questions I had. At the conclusion of our stay, he returned the security deposit promptly. As for the house itself, it was exactly what we were looking for. It housed 10 adults (4 couples, 2 singles) very comfortably. The house was clean on our arrival and fully stocked with towels and small necessities (toilet paper, coffee filters, etc.). There was ample parking in the garage and driveway for all four vehicles that made the trip. The indoor and outdoor living spaces are spacious and comfortable, and the propane grill had plenty of fuel. The house even comes with a manual explaining local hikes and activities, how to use the various electronic devices, and it provides a quick check-list detailing how to leave the house upon departure. This is super handy when trying to mobilize 10 people before check out! The location is hard to beat as well. Donner Lake and the amenities of Truckee are within an easy drive. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend the place to a friend.

It was my first time using a rental. What a lovely experience.

  • 5 of 5

The owner thought of everything. The handbook was explicit.

We would have liked more bath towels, one for each person staying there. We would have happily brought some if we had known. Again, it was our first time. Lovely

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed our wonderful Tahoe house and we take great pride in keeping a comfortable and welcoming home for our guests. In regards to the comment about bath towels, you must not of looked in the hallway linen closet because we have amble bath towels for all 11 guests that stay in the house in addition to beach towels as well.

Spacious, Well-appointed Home with Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

The Hayley house had most everything we could desire for our extended family of 7 adults and 3 pre-schoolers aged 1-4 for our 5 day stay . The kitchen was large and thoroughly stocked (well, maybe as with most rentals, a good sharp knife or two would have made it nearly perfect), the dining and living areas large and furnished to easily handle the 10 of us. If you want media options, they are all there. There were plenty of quality linens and towels of all sizes. The bathrooms are a bit tricky as there is one bedroom downstairs with a hall half bath and then 2 full baths upstairs. One of them is in the master so if there are unrelated parties involved, you essentially have one full bath for 3 BR's. One thing we couldn't ascertain until we got there for assigning BR's was that the office/BR with trundle is on the same end of the hall as the bunk room and full bath. The master and other upstairs BR is at the other end of the hall.

If there is any shortcoming at all it is with the outdoor furnishings. There are only a plastic table that seats 4, a rather uncomfortable love seat couch, and a fire pit that must use some kind of pellet--it is not gas or wood. Unfortunately, the deck cannot handle much more than that. As we were there for lovely spring days we would have liked to have had more opportunity to gather out there overlooking the quiet and lovely forest. The BBQ was great.

We had a couple of reasons to contact the owner and he responded quickly and helpfully each time.

All in all, the best vrbo rental I have used. If we go back to the area, we will stay again.

Great, cozy, family-friendly home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Truckee at the Hayley House. Pete was very attentive and the home was quite comfortable for our party (4 adults / 5 children). Proximity to many major ski resorts was great and we were able to enjoy a great weekend of spring skiing. We would definitely come back.
