About Toni Guel
This home we chose as a family,due to the fact of our love for Tahoe. We do gather here all together or with the company of friends and relatives, we always have a wonderful time.
Toni Guel purchased this House in 2001
Why Toni Guel chose South Lake Tahoe
We as a family have been a part of Tahoe since 1967, family vacations here have been such great experiences with all seasons.Snow boarding and snow play in winters and spring is so beautiful here the mountains caped with snow through summer and the lake is a great time to bring your boat or just enjoy water sports Tahoe has to offer. The beaches,hiking, parks and lake is the best place to spend your summer vacations. Outdoor concerts and entertainment is so awesome to experience.
What makes this House unique
Our location is so ideal all and I mean all is so near and convent with the feel of the forest and the lake you can almost touch. 5 minutes to all restaurants, shopping, hiking, biking and the beach is all you need or just enjoy our home as if it is yours while you stay. The back yard is peaceful and offers areas to just relax, read a book take a nap or just enjoy all the games it offers. Don't forget to breath the fresh air !!

Nice place, good location, a few negative surprises
First, I want to say that this is a really nice house in a great location in South Lake Tahoe and we had a wonderful stay. That being said, we do need to provide an honest review of some of the positive and negative things we encountered to aid others in making their decisions.
Some of the positives are there are lots of things to do in the house such as board games, movies and table games. There's also lots of snow equipment available to use if there's snow on the ground. The kitchen is fully stocked so you can cook pretty much anything you like. You can tell the owners really take pride in the house and want to keep it nice.
However, there were some things we weren't thrilled with. First thing we noticed was the lack of parking and the realization that we might get a $1000 fine for parking on the street. It would've been helpful to know that before arriving with multiple vehicles. You cannot on the street and the driveway will only fit two vehicles. Same goes for the ban on outdoor fires since we brought tons of firewood to burn but saw a note in the house that said we weren't allowed to have fires in the outdoor fireplace. We were also a little disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the property. There was tons of hair on the floor of the bathroom and in all the drawers and the towels had what appeared to be pine needles stuck to them. The worst was the band aid floating in the hot tub. These issues shouldn't be a problem considering we paid a $200 cleaning fee, but the house was probably cleaner when we left than when we arrived. There were notes everywhere giving info and suggestions (62 degrees suggested for sleeping, turn fireplace off at night) which made it feel like we were being watched, which coincidentally a sign on the front porch actually said "Neighbors are watching" and it detracted from feeling completely comfortable. By the way, the owner's sister lives across the street. Also, there weren't curtains on the dining room so people can see right in, especially at night. Lastly, the downstairs beds are not very good. They appear to have foam rubber egg crate style cushions on top of a mattress and if you're used to a good mattress, these aren't very comfortable.
Like I said in the beginning, it's a beautiful place to stay in a great location but we wanted to give an honest review of some of the things that could be improved upon and inform future guests.
Thank you for the review let me explain a few of the city ordinances that they have come with the vacation rental
The 1,000. fine recently passed not at our choice and was told to post where vacationers can read it.
The No outdoor fires is also the city ordinance until further notice
We are all able to park 3 vehicles in the driveway with no problem, we understand one is in the dirt area but it works
The fireplace works great upstairs and the rooms downstairs remain cold for sleeping, we find that at night it is more comfortable to turn it off late at night, the thermostat is upstairs then the heater will not turn on.
We had repeated persons in our home without permission and was caught quickly, we had to put signs up and neighbors do look out for each other that is how we were able to stop intruders
My brother in law across the way is the maintenance man for our home
The pine trees blow day and night at times, the grounds are cleaned weekly we will be painting decks and house this spring
The views are what we all enjoy and have never experienced people looking up that high and no one else ever said anything about ( No Curtains)
The beds I've never had a complaint but will look into it soon
The cleaning process is my concern and I can't apologize enough that it was not to your satisfaction.
Thank You Again
Nice, clean, comfy!
We had a great time. Thank you!
A great place to stay
This place is a great getaway. We were 9 adults and a baby and the place was comfortable and spacious enough to have us all. The living room is big and in an open space with the kitchen which makes it great for a group to hang out together.
Good proximity to downtown and lake and a nice forest nearby to take a walk.
I would highly recommend it.
Comfy house in a great location
My family spent a perfect week at this house. The house is clean and comfortable with lots of great extras like a hot tub, outdoor and indoor games and bikes. The kitchen is well stocked and good for cooking. Great entertainment (cable, wifi) and it is centrally located with a bike path and trails from the end of the street that go to Fallen Leaf Lake. My only complaint, and its minor is that the notes around the house were sometimes contradictory. There are about 5 different places where check-out instructions are posted or written and they are all a little different. Left us wondering whether we'd done everything (and it is a rather long list) correctly.
Thank you for the review :+)
The house maps need to be on all the walls as the city request ,as for the check out list they are a few it would be great if guest read them ,my cleaning service and I have walked up the the house the front door has been left open ,the inside and out door lights left on and windows open :+)
Blessed to have this place
Fantastic Family Tahoe getaway
Great house in a great neighborhood with great hosts. House set up is perfect for a family and located close to so much -- South shore, Camp Rich, Fallen Leaf, Echo Lake, etc. can't wait to go back.
Great home to stay with family and friends.
The house and property was perfect for our needs. Beds were really comfortable, house was spacious. Some of the burners on the stove don't light automatically and needed to buy all paper goods and matches but other then that we had a great time! The two decks were our favorite hangout.
Tahoes best south shore ,close to all with in 5 min lake ,restaurants , activities , shops, resorts, biking and much more.
