"7/3/2015 to 7/11/2015
Very nice, very comfortable vacation home. Great lake access right there in the Tahoe Keys. Conveniently close to activities, shopping, groceries, restaurants and Stateline fun! Our group, though originally planning for eleven, maxed out at eight, and everyone was comfortable!
When I booked this property by contacting the Erickson's through VRBO, I was specifically looking for a property that would accommodate our arrival before the July 4th weekend and allow us to stay eight-nights instead of the “customary week (7-nights) Communication with Doug Erickson was very simple throughout the booking as well as our stay.
Our first night, though was just a little uncomfortable, as is had been quite sunny warm during the day of our arrival. Not knowing this home had no Air Conditioning, we went downstairs and made sure the thermostat was set to cool, and the target temperature set at 72. We found a couple of oscillating fans in the bedroom closets, and combined with the ceiling fans in the living-room, we were able to make that first night a little more bearable. The next day I communicated via email with the owner, who informed me that most properties in Tahoe have no A/C, and that we should use the cross-breeze of open windows and the fans to keep things cool. After learning that, the remaining days/nights went much better!
The kitchen was, clean, large and well stocked with all of the necessary utensils and convinces of home to accommodate whatever meal preparation we needed during our stay. There was a gas barbecue out on the Main floor balcony, and the owners made sure there was ample propane. Being as it seemed to rain some just about every single day we were there, a little ore awning type of coverage over the BBQ area would have been nice. As it were, the three times we grilled, we had to wait for the rain to stop. But really, no big deal…we were on VACATION!
All of the bedrooms were well stocked with sheets and plenty of blankets (winter visitors, I assume), and the bathrooms included all towels and soap/shampoo amenities like any hotel you might visit. The water pressure was outstanding in all bathrooms, although we each made sure there was only one person showering at a time, out of precaution….also, there was ample hot water!
