Great space for a birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - great size and room for all to have a wonderful time. Everything was perfect from the bedrooms to the fun in the back yard to the garage space, the washer and dryer to the guest house and all the bathrooms and kitchen supplies. Close within walking distance to the night life of the casino's for those who wanted to have additional fun away from the home and also close access to trailheads for those who wanted to get in some physical activity. Everything was perfect I highly recommend and would say many times more!

Good, not great

  • 3 of 5

Owner is very responsive & there is lots of space. The house is not well maintained (outdated appliances, creaky beds, doors difficult to open, carpets in need of deep cleaning). The surrounding area is lovely and the home is conveniently located.

Owner's Response: We live 15 minutes away and we always encourage our guests to call us if there are any problems with the house. We always check the house after every guest for any possible damage. All the doors work fine. The carpets are steamed cleaned twice a year and vacuumed and spot cleaned after every stay. All beds have memory foam pads on top of the mattresses and are very comfortable.

Old- Needs some TLC- definitely a rental

  • 2 of 5

Great location for our use. Property owner was responsive regarding hot water heater issue. But the furniture is old hand me downs, the main floor bathroom had an odor issue, the kitchen needs remodeling, the tile was cracked and was 1980 vintage. It smelled musty/water damaged. Found dirty dishes in the cabinet (had to re-wash). Had issues with nightstand lamps ( bulb issues). The backyard was nice. I would not rent this house again and can't recommend to anyone!!

Owner's Response: The pictures do not lie and show the house the way it is, you know what you get before booking. New homes with new decor and new furniture rent for over 1,000 per night for a house that sleeps as many as 20. We provide a comfortable, affordable house for large groups that is usually fully booked in season. If you want hotel accommodations, you can pay hotel prices. This house provides the old Tahoe charm that people want. We have a spa, pool table, 2 kitchens, 2 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and a prime location for a bargain price. It works out to about 25 per person per night for groups of 16 or more. The kitchen has a lot of stuff in it to accommodate large groups and it's possible that the previous guests didn't properly clean something when they put it back and the cleaning crew didn't notice. We were not aware of some the issues that you mentioned and we would have come over right away and have fixed them, like we fixed the water heater issue, which was caused by having both garage door and interior door opened at the same time that created a draft and blew the pilot light out.

Wedding weekend rental June15-18

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and certainly has a lot of space. My single most significant concern is the master bathroom shower. The shower head would be a simple fix with a shower head on a hose made by either Water Pik or Delta and sold at home depot or Lowes. The lights are a little strange in the master bedroom.

A Ceiling fan with light might be a nice addition. The front walk is terrible and a definite liability. This really needs to be fixed with a cement walk. It is not well lit at night and could cause people to fall. Overall enjoyed the house and appreciate your efforts to make it an enjoyable home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving a review for us and your suggestions. The master bathroom shower head is one year new, is Water Pik, is from home depot and is specifically intended for the space of the shower.... any shower head with a hose that you suggested would shoot water right to the floor. We thoroughly evaluated all options before selecting the one that's there. The house VRBO listing has pictures of the house that clearly show no ceiling fans before reservations are made. To compensate for it, we provide portable fans and there are at least 1 or 2 in each of the bedrooms. There is a porch light in front of the house and 2 lights at the garage to light up the driveway. There was no complaints about the lighting ever before in over 17 years of the house being rental. The walkway was cement walk and was changed to pavers before we had the house, and again there was never a complaint about it.

Great Christmas family vacation experience.

  • 5 of 5

We have 10 adults and 4 young kids less than 5 year old arriving the day before Christmas eve for a planned family gathering for 3 days. Thanks to the owner, we were able to check in 2 hours early due to incoming snowstorm. It may not be a very new house, but everything you need are there, including a jacuzi. 4 bedrooms in the main part of the house are updated and very clean. The in-law bed room is older, but comfortable. It is also close to heavenly ski area and downtown. I was also able to get my electric car charged at Harvey's casino/hotel for free, about 5-10 mins away. For a large family or group, this is a good choice comparing with hotel. We were able to cook Christmas dinner, play games, watch footballs, etc. We were also able to enjoy the beautiful snow falls, built snowman the first day we were there, then 2 days of full sunshine, can't plan it any better way.

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This year we decided to spend Thanksgiving in South Lake Tahoe and were fortunate to stay at this property which had enough space (beds, TV's and space) for our multi-family gathering. The large refrigerator and double ovens was able to accommodate all of the food and meals we prepared. The house is a couple of blocks away from stateline (hwy 50) and then the casino is very close. We didn't get to enjoy the outdoor amenities due to the snow but looks like it would be a nice place to stay in the summer. Lana and John were very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for letting us stay. We had a good time.
