About Kathy or Carol

We are avid snow and water skiers. We love the Tahoe area and our home there. We hope you will enjoy your time there as much as we do! Sometimes we go up just for the really fresh air and a lot less people than town.

You will enjoy the beach and lake and large lawn areas in our yard in summer as well as all the great snow in winter.

Spring and Fall mean no crowds and quiet, peaceful rest and relaxation.

Kathy or Carol purchased this house in 2005

Why Kathy or Carol chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We purchased this home because of the location, being an easy short walk to the lake. It's fun to cross country ski along the lake in winter and swim in the warm shallow water near the beach in the summer. We also picked it for proximity to Northstar where we were purchasing season passes. I also liked how 'funky' the house is. I didn't realize that most Tahoe cabins were built as one bedroom summer cottages and then people just kept adding on to them. The house has a lot of charm and is a really comfortable house and large yard for families and their doggie.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit to our house is that it is really well stocked and comfortable with everything you need. There are down comforters, and lots of towels, and a well stocked kitchen. The house has WiFi and cable and 2 TV's.

Everything you need in just the right spot!

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a great week at the yellow cabin! We found that the cabin had all of the amenities we needed - plenty of rooms, beds, kitchen tools, etc. The big yard was lovely and the jacuzzi was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The location was perfect as we could walk to the beach and downtown Kings Beach - which is part of our annual tradition. It's also close to the supermarket which was also convenient. Thanks again or a lovely stay!

Location and price cannot be beat!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this home 3 times now and will continue this tradition every Summer. Our children call this home the "yellow cabin" and it has become a part of our family memories. We go with my sister's family and her children as well as some friends. We have had 6 adults and 7 children and this time had 5 adults and 4 children. It is true that this home is not modern or super updated, but it is clean and comfortable. There are two main reasons we continue to go back. One is that the price cannot be beat for a 5 bedroom especially considering there is a gated yard, a hot tub, and it is pet friendly. The second is the location. It is a short walk (a few blocks or less!) to the beach, a Rite Aid, a Safeway, and many shops and restaurants. There is a school across the street and, on the weekends, the kids can ride their bikes and play in the playground there. There is no need to even drive since everything is in walking distance, but we have gone To Truckee for a day and it is only about a 15-20 minute drive. The dining table can be a tight squeeze, but we usually pull a long table out of the shed and eat outside and that is lovely. We can't wait for our next Summer stay at the yellow cabin!

double booking, irresponsible owner!

  • 1 of 5

We booked this property for our entire extended family in early May, for the 4th of July. The owner did not realize that she had double booked the property and canceled our contract today, June 26th. We now have to find a new house for our whole extended family's fourth of july vacation with less than a week before arrival. Ridiculous - do not trust this owner for your vacation!!!!!!!

Great family vacation home

  • 4 of 5

We have rented this home twice for a family summer vacation. It is a great house for multiple families and especially great for families with teenagers!!! The yard is great, wonderful spa and the fire pit is great for the evenings. I found the information we were given upon arrival was very accurate and helpful. Easy walk to the beach and drive to several mountain biking destinations. We will definitely be back again.

Dirty and not maintained

  • 1 of 5

The location of the house was great and the spa was nice but inside the house was dirty and run down (mold on shower door, no lights that worked in master bath, 2 holes in walls, missing floor board, etc.) There was also old beds and other trash thrown outside in the driveway area. We contacted the owner the day we returned from our trip to advise her of the conditions. We requested 1/2 of our money returned. We sent 3 pages of photos showing filth and problems. She has not refunded any money. We have never had a bad experience using VRBO before. We use it about once a year for vacations but after this experience, we will be more careful.

Owner's Response: This house is professionally cleaned and maintained constantly. These guests did not call anyone upon arrival to let us know there was any problem at all. The maintenance man lives 2 doors down, the cleaning service is local and I also respond immediately to any issues. They had all 3 numbers and used none. I did not hear a word ever. Instead they sent an e-mail after using their complete stay demanding a 100% refund. My agent went over immediately and I drove from Santa Cruz, to check it out myself. Frankly some complaints are just plain lies. The master bathroom lights work fine. apparently they didn't push the button on the mirror. It is not a wall switch. The directions were in the house information sent to them as well as all 3 phone numbers which they did not call, ever. There are no floorboards missing anywhere. There was a small round hole in the upstairs hallway apparently where someone put a child gate to keep a child from the stairwell. It was patched immediately. There is another small hole where a light switch was broken. That too is easily remedied. A simple call would have solved all complaints and they would have had a wonderful stay as all other folks who stayed there this last Summer. Please look at other reviews before deciding and feel free to call me anytime with questions or issues. I will provide a local property management number as well upon request. I respond to all complaints promptly and repair and replace any issues complained of. So do the cleaning and maintenance services. You a free to inspect the property prior to renting as well. Please come and enjoy your stay in Tahoe. Very close to the lake and nice large yard for summer fun.

This was our second time renting the Steelhead house...

  • 5 of 5

We had another great stay at the Steelhead home, and I can't say much more than I did via last summer's review. We will be back for a week next summer and are counting the days.
