About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Welcome to Luxury at a Discount! You won't find a more beautiful and fun filled home in all of Tahoe Donner, especially at this price.

Our house has recently been beautifully renovated and redecorated throughout - hickory hardwood floors (carpeting in the bedrooms), 3 kings size beds, 1 queen, and one single over double log style bunk bed, 1 queen size pullout couch, fully equipped kitchen, game room with full size full size air hockey table, fuzzball table, hot tub, garage, double entry flat driveway, front and back decks, designer furnishings, two fireplaces, kid friendly bedroom, and large family room/playroom with tons of toys and costumes. It is an extremely child friendly home with an ideal setup for multiple families and friends. The bedrooms are divided up (three upstairs, two downstairs) to provide a maximum amount of privacy between the two floors.

Our luxurious family vacation home is part of the Tahoe Donner community which includes access to the recreation facilities (gym, pools, Jacuzzis, snow sledding area, children’s play areas, private beach at Donner Lake).

We have made a tremendous effort to keep our fixed costs low and to pass on the savings to our renters. We have invested in eco friendly appliances and have gone GREEN where ever possible, and hope that our renters will participate in our efforts by turning down the heat, using less electricity etc in order for us to maintain our reduced rates.

Our 2015 - 16 rates are range between $450 - $650/night. There is also a $235 cleaning fee and a 12% occupancy tax.

Here is a detailed description of the house and its layout that we have provided for renters that can be helpful for their vacation planning:

The house is an ideal multi-family house and was designed with kids in mind. My sister and I co-own the house and we have 5 children between our two families so the place is equipped from baby age up to teen (Pac n Play, clip on high chair, lots of toys, costumes and kids dvd’s, air hockey table, fuzzball table, snow play area etc). It was also recently redecorated and looks fantastic.

The layout of the house is as follows… outside is semi-circular driveway that fits about 6 – 8 cars depending on snow levels in the winter, two car garage, easiest entry is through garage door into downstairs.

Downstairs level has the playroom with a couch (sleepable), tv with dvd/satellite, toys, costumes, and books, two bedrooms (one king size bed, one queen size bed) and bathroom with shower over tub. The games room with a full sized air hockey table, fuzzball table, dart board, etc is also on this level.

Upstairs level has livingroom/diningroom/kitchen as one big area (65 inch flat-screen tv/satelitte/dvd/receiver/gaming hook ups!!) with large deck off of front with big gas BBQ (kids can play in snow on deck), dining room table that extends and can easily sit 16 or more, three bedrooms (master bedroom with king size bed and bathroom, second bedroom with king size bed, third bedroom with twin over full bunkbed), large guest bathroom with shower over tub and washer/dryer in closeted alcove. Master bedroom and bunk bed bedroom have additional tv’s/dvd/satelitte. Private hot tub is outside in the backyard just behind the house.

The house is heated centrally and also has two gas stoves – one in family room, one in living room and additional individual room heaters for bedrooms as needed. Kitchen is fully equipped and has seen a lot of cooking action. House is furnished with wireless internet, lots of dvd’s, videos, books, toys, and games.

Depending on the age and desired sleeping arrangements for families with children, kids are usually happiest in the bunkbed bedroom. There are also multiple additional mattresses stored underneath beds throughout the house that can be used to sleep kids on the floors – either in the bunkbed bedroom or in their parents’ rooms. Kids can also sleep on the floor of the family room dormitory style (best for older kids). The advantage to having the house divided up onto two floors is that it allows for a greater amount of privacy and noise control.

In the winter there are plenty of snow play areas around the house (depending on snow levels) including the front porch, sides and back of house, and kids can build small sled runs onto the driveway in front. Our kids will event sled down the street with a parent pulling the sled if it's icy enough.

In addition to all of the fun things available at the house you have access to the Tahoe Donner Association amenities (rec center, swimming pools, gym, spas and saunas, equestrian center, private beach at Donner Lake, snow play area with sled/inner tubes, downhill and cross country ski resorts…).

Hopefully this description helps for your planning. We look forward to hearing from you. Please email us through VRBO to receive reservation and payment instructions. We manage our property independently and prefer to accept payment via personal checks. This allows us to hold renters' security deposit checks instead of cashing them (unless needed after the rental) and hopefully saves everybody money on fees in the process. Please feel free to contact us via email or phone if you have any questions or need more information.

Cheers,
Nicole and Andrea
