5 years on, another great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joseph's house 5 years ago in the summer and enjoyed the views and the proximity to the beach at Meeks Bay. We were back for a long weekend in winter and had another good stay. The house is private and has great views. It's a classic Tahoe place, comfortable and quiet. Arrangements with Joseph were easy. We will be back again soon hopefully.

Great location and great cabin to entertain!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the cabin with two other families and had a great time! The cabin is very clean and comfortable with tons of space with great views. A great spot to entertain over looking the bay and walking distance to the water. We couldn't have asked for a better location. We plan to come back every year. This is our 7th trip to the cabin.

I want to thank Joe for sharing his piece of paradise with us. I went for my 55th birthday. It had been many years since I visited Tahoe, mostly in the winter. I fell in love with Meeks Bay and your home. It is close to everything, Marina, fun restaurants : West Shore Cafe, Sunnyside, Swiss Chalet, all wonderful food and beautiful views. Everyone needs to get Chambered at Chambers Landing. A must to go floating down the Truckee. One of my favorites!!! But best of all is the location of the cabin! You can walk to the shore with lots of sandy areas it is perfect for young children.Sitting on the beautiful deck to watch the sunsets and just leave your cares behind is priceless. I hope we will be visiting for years to come. PS. My two dogs Hanz, and Bella give it 2 paws up!!! They loved it being dog friendly. Thank you again!!!
