!!!!!!!!!please read my review before conside to rent tis property!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

not worth to give a star, owner refused to refund the extra charged of $500.00, before signing the contract owner clearly saying disregard the charge for 2, we have 8 adults and 2 kids in total that's why I questioned why it charged for 2 extra while the property listed for 16 people. *Very danger place for the small kids on second floor at the rails, balusters are spaced too wide that make the child up to 5 year old easy to get thru it and full off and get injury or get kill, 5 out 8 adults have bumped the head into the kitchen hood that is built with sharp corner and hanged from the ceiling about 5 feet off the kitchen floor, very old building that you feel the house shaking when small kids run up stair, mid bathroom door lock doesn't open from the inside so most of the time got some one locked inside and screamed for help, shower door missing locking latch, ran out of toilet tissues on the 3rd day of 5 days stay; piano didn't work that disappointed the kids spent lot of time for practice to prepare for Christmas performance, Jacuzzi water was too dirty so did not use at all, outside grill metals been burned off so some burners are not working, stair at the front entrance is very bad designed that make it very danger to uses, few top step have small surface at the turn make it easy to miss it at the top! Some electrical outlet cover cracked missing piece so kids easy to put fingers in and easy get electrocuted. Heat vents installed right on top of the bed so the hot air blows right on you face while you lay on the bed, we closed it up but it's too cold with the heat! Only the master bed is firms and all the beds are sagging with no support. uneven bricks walkway to the front door that had been complained by other renters but nothing been done (please see other review), Old house lack of maintenance but charge big $, not worth for the money spent. More than happy to provide evidence of proof if needed. Not worth for a star but can't process without one!!!

Owner's Response: As far as an extra charge, there was none: The guest booked for 16 people,8 adults,8 kids (& not 8 adults & 2 kids as he said in his review). VRBO discloses extra charges before a booking is paid for, it mentions additional guest charges in the rates,breaks down the charges line by line when a booking is done.Extra people create extra wear and tear on the house, hence an extra charge for over 14. Hence, there was no “extra charge of $500.00” that the guest mentioned in his review, & nothing to be refunded to the guest. NOT TO MENTION that the guest’s deposit was returned in FULL even though the guests abused the house and ruined the dining room table by putting a hot pot on it without a pad underneath. The burned marks guests left on the table could not be fixed & the table has to be replaced. They DID NOT get charged for it & still were not happy.The entire $500 deposit could have been withheld to pay for the table they ruined and they DID NOT appreciate full refund. As far as the railing, the house was built in 1963.The codes change all the time, meaning that every house in every city has to be remodeled all the time to accommodate code updates.The railing in the house is fine for kids and no one in 17 years of its’ rental history (including babies and young kids) ever mentioned it. The kitchen hood is clearly depicted in all the pictures of the kitchen before a booking is done. Yes, there was a problem with a “mid bathroom door lock” as we learned later, from a group that booked after this one. How? They called us and mentioned it. And we fixed it right away. We never heard of the problem from this group who dared to leave a bad review for us rather that calling us with problem. Major miscommunication from the guests.The same applies to the hot tub. We hired a service to clean the tub….. just mention that the water is not cleaned and it will be fixed in that hour. There was NO communication from this group of guests…And then a bad review. Please talk to us. We live in town and can fix anything in no time! Piano works fine& guests prior & after to this group really enjoyed it. It is up to the guests to figure out how it works.In fact, the piano is not even advertised in the listing.Hence one cannot expect the kids to piano “practice to prepare for Christmas performance“ at a rental house in Tahoe with no knowledge that there is a piano there.All electrical outlet covers are in place,none of it is cracked,&some them even have the child safety caps in.

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!

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.

Exactly What We Wanted

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly what we were looking for. Multiple beds, hot tub, big back yard and close to the lake and casinos. Lana was extremely nice and was always available when needed. The house has a pool table that doubles as a ping pong table which was great as our guests enjoyed playing both. They even have horseshoes in the backyard! If you are looking for a comfortable home in a great location in South Lake Tahoe at an affordable price, look no further!
