"We had a small staff retreat at this property with about 10 people and had a wonderful time. The property is quiet and secluded with all the amenities we could have wanted. The kitchen is well-appointed, with pots, pans, dishes, etc. all in good condition. The entertainment system was great for unwinding and watching movies. We also really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, staring up at the stars at night, through the towering pine trees. In the mornings we sat on the back deck with our coffee and listened to birds chirping. Some of us even thrilled at taking quick dips in the cool stream that butts up against the back of the property. The next time I'm looking for a property in this area, this would be my first choice."

"Our first family getaway since my mom their grandmother passed away in 1994. This home was so beautifully perfect. The memories we created here were priceless from cooking together to playing games in and outside the home on a full acre, you had everything there that we needed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing a piece of heaven with us!
Love the Mookini Alvarez Family...Aloha Mahalo"

"I am not exaggerating but Steve is a really nice person to work with. I was a bit reluctant to finalize my plans since almost every other weekend rain or thunderstorms were predicted. Well after having a little one, we have to make sure that we can stop at will. But as soon as we made up our minds, I contacted Steve. Luckily his property was still available. It was going to be very late in the night to reach tahoe, so Steve made sure that the house was accessible and lights were turned on so that we could get in the house easily. The house has a rustic cabin feeling but in a good way. It is spacious. 4 of us and our little one had plenty of space to ourselves. The house has everything including utensils, pots, bread toaster you name it. There are also some spices, salt etc. We cooked only once. The pool table upstairs was in a good condition. There was a ping pong table top which we didn't use. The property was true to it's description in the posting, in fact much better in person. There were soap bars, hand soap, lotion, plenty of towels and many more things. Also, unlike many other rentals, at least this is what I have read and personally had to do once at another rental, we didn't have to put the linen or towels in the washer. Only things we had to do, when we left, were putting the dishes in dishwasher and start the dishwasher then put the trash out in the containers inside garage.
When I spoke to Steve on phone, I asked him if we have to carry our towels or also if there is anything else let me know now. Steve's reply was "You just have to show up." I laughed when Steve told me that but it was literally a matter of showing up and enjoying vacation.
Lira's grocery store is about 2.5 miles away. Stock up there if needed.
At the end of our trip, we felt that we were not doing justice to the beautiful property by staying only 2 nights. We even pondered extending vacation by 1 more day. But beating traffic the next morning and reaching office would have been a nightmare. So with heavy heart we didn't extend the stay. Steve was generous enough to let us stay beyond check out time since getting our little one ready took a while. We reached late on the day of arrival so Steve even told us that we could stay until dinner on the day of departure if we wanted to, which was a nice gesture on his part. Even for the slightest of issues Steve is a phone call away and takes care of it immediately. Thank you Steve. We will definitely be back."

"We arrived and were met by the owner who walked us through the house, showing us all the features, it is the best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in a rental. Plenty of room for the 10 people that we took. Set up badminton in the back yard and spent several days hanging out with family. The surprising walk to the back of the property through the trees is very nice only to find the private park-like area along the Truckee River where we spent a good deal of our time hanging out, fishing and playing with the dog (who loved his stay also)
We will be back!"
