Great property, amazing views and convenient location to ski resorts
Overall an amazing property with expansive views, lots of room for our guests (we had 14 people) and close proximity to Squaw, Alpine and Northstar. Couldn't put 5 stars because we had a decent amount of minor issues that the owners should be able to fix and noticed that these issues hadn't been fixed prior to our arrival based on prior reviews. For example:
There was only one pool cue for the pool table, and it was missing a tip. We bought an extra pool cue and left it at the house for future guests AND we repaired the existing pool cue with a new tip.
Several of the pool table pockets had large holes in them, resulting in balls slamming on the floor. We bought some rope and repaired the pockets as best we could, but the leather material the pockets are made of are poor quality and will continue to degrade.
Both kitchen faucets are loose and will probably come undone if they are not tightened with the proper long-neck faucet wrench from below (I didn't have my faucet wrench with me lol)
The garbage/recycling bear box was super full with prior guests' garbage and recycling, at least a couple of weeks' worth of garbage. Adding our recycling/garbage only made it worse.
The left-side Viking oven in the kitchen does not work and needs attention.
Again, the above items are relatively minor in the grand scheme of things, but enough of them together, combined with the fact several of these issues were reported by prior guests, result in 4 stars. For the owners: get these minor maintenance issues taken care of and you've got a solid 5-star location on your hands! Thanks again!
Thank you for staying with us and the feedback. Your experience from start to finish is very important to us and we appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention. We will have our local team look into this issues and get them resolved.
Wonderful house, spectacular view, great for large groups!
Hi, we just stayed at your beautiful property in Tahoe Vista. It fit our family just perfectly! And the View was outstanding!!
I thought I would mention a few small things that need to be fixed.
In the Suite over the second garages:
—Master bath shower door would not stay closed during shower
—We (our daughter) could not figure out how to turn off fireplace, making it 91degrees at times.
—Second bathroom had NO hot water in shower
—Second bathroom faucet leaked all the time
In the Main Kitchen:
—one of the coffee makers does not work
—the second dishwasher control panel did not work properly and therefore the dishes weren’t cleaned properly
—there were NO blue bags that we could find, if you wanted us to recycle
—the lights over the island are not lit properly/or the light is out; sometimes they flashed
—there was definitely not enough flatware for a large group; more small bowls for children are also needed
—dining chairs/stools are not comfortable
—Pool Table was not clean/had crumbs in various places
—Pool Cues, one had no tip; should really have 4 for groups
—One Pool Table pocket had hole so the ball would slam to the floor
—Main Floor wood flooring was not cleaned properly, as my white socks were very dirty within the first hour we were there, and so were my grandchildren ‘s feet!
—The gutters leak right over the main garage doors, which creates a large area of water and ice.
—We had no tv with cable as we weren’t told we had to provide our own. There should be instructions on how to work the tv, like which remote controls what.
All in all, it’s a large beautiful home with lots to take care of. Just thought it could made a little better.

Hi Jim and Sue,
Thank you so much for your thoughtful and thorough review. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, but we're absolutely concerned with the items you've mentioned that negatively effected your stay. We're so sorry for this, and we want to let you know our team is aware and working on fixing these items as we speak. We hope we'll get the chance to host you and your family again at this home or at one of our other homes to make up for any inconveniences you faced.
Everyone had their own bathroom and so much privacy!
Everyone had their own bathroom and so much privacy! I've never seen a cleaner vacation resort! Wow! The grill on the back deck was super clean! Everything was 5 star. Our group of 19 had plenty of room to spread out! Every room was equally fantastic. Gorgeous views, well equipped kitchen, and Gerard was incredibly helpful and easy to work with! We hope to be back! Our 4 kids under 3 had everything they needed to be comfortable and happy!
Thanks for the great review!
Killer property great to groups!
This property was beautifully updated and has incredible views of the lake. We had an offsite here and it was the perfect spot. Plenty of room for everyone, very comfortable bedrooms and spacious, modern common spaces that were great for hanging out and getting work done. Would highly recommend both for a group looking for a fun getaway weekend or to be used as an offsite, etc.
Thank you for staying with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to be able to host you again.
Impressive! What a beautiful setting.
This is a wonderful property. The house is set right on the lake and the views are impressive.
When you walk in, you immediately realize no expense was held back in the remodel. Everything about this home screams quality and attention to detail.
This home is ideal for a large family or business retreat. I could not have been more impressed.
Usually, I try to find something to suggest, but in this case, Villa Bella is quite simply perfect.
Thank you for staying with us. We are happy that you loved Villa Bella. Hope you host you again.
Beautiful. Large property, amazing view.
The house is great, with a modern open floorplan. Most impressive is the spectacular panoramic view of the lake. The property itself is very large, giving a great sense of privacy.
Thank you for staying with us. We are glad that you enjoyed Villa Bella. Hope we can host again in the future.
