About Tahoe Management Services Co, LLC

I am a chef instructor at a culinary school in the San Francisco Bay Area, my passion is cooking and skiing! We also like to entertain and cook for large groups sometimes as many as 27

We have two large dogs and take them with us, they love Tahoe!

Tahoe Management Services Co, LLC purchased this house in 1995

Why Tahoe Management Services Co, LLC chose Tahoe Village

We are just a short 3 hour drive from our home in the Bay Area to our home in Tahoe. We appreciate the privacy of being on almost 3/4th of an acre. We can invite a lot of friends, and have celebrated family reunions, birthdays, retirement parties, and weddings.

What makes this house unique

The quiet, the conveniece of Heavenly's shuttle stopping to pick us up at the driveway and dropping us off after skiing, close enough to shopping and the casino area, yet far enough to feel that you are truly in the mountains.

I'm very happy it can accommodate 5 families and still have a lot of room. Minor cosmetics needs to be worked on but overall we had a great weekend. Also pet friendly we were able to bring our maltipoo! I will definitely return to this property in the near future. Thanks again!

House needs some work

  • 4 of 5

We have a family get together every year with 12 adults and 6 children. Finding a place that has enough rooms for everyone isn't easy so I was really excited when I saw this rental on VRBO because it had more than enough rooms. On the surface the house looks good but there are several issues that need to be taken care of. 1. dishwasher top rack comes right off the rail if you aren't careful. 2. some of the lighting is out in the family room 3. although there are enough rooms the living space is just too small for a family of 18, the pool table takes up way too much space. 4. the drain for the shower next to the kitchen does not drain properly. 5. the light for the oven does not work. Many of these items are minor and can be taken care of right away by the property manager.

Great location and space for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend with our extended family, 14 adults and 3 kids under 5. The rooms and space were as described, the kitchen was well equipped for all the meals we cooked. We also liked the location, we were close to beaches and casinos. It was a special treat to walk around the neighborhood and see a family of deer!

None of the TV's worked. after spending some time we were able to get them going... the wall outlets did not work downstairs it took a bit to find the RFI reset, and tis the season we had ants on the bottom floor little sugar ants. Other then that we all enjoyed our stay

Owner's Response: Unfortunately we have had some power outages and they do cause problems with TV's and GRI's/RFI's, glad you were able to find the box and reset. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again!

Great location- house needs some work

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying the location of this home was great for us- walk-able to Heavenly! It was also nice and private.

Now, we aren't fancy people but there were quite a few things that caught our eye about this home after staying here for four nights. First, we had a MAJOR issue with the dishwasher. The management team sent out a plumber on the second day, but whatever he did- it didn't work. We didn't have a working dishwasher the entire time so washing dishes for 11 people while on vacation was a complete nightmare. The management was nice enough to issue us a small refund for our troubles so I was pleased by that.

Second, you really only get the bare minimums when it comes to necessities here. Bars of soap in each bathroom and one small towel and washcloth per person. NO HAND TOWELS in any of the bathrooms. Weird. The kitchen had a few hand towels for drying dishes but we went through those extremely fast (see item #1 above). Also, no throw blankets at all for snuggling on the couch...

Third, the pool table was SO disgusting. We didn't even want to touch it. Please spend a few hundred dollars to recover it. Gross.

Fourth, there were multiple light bulbs out in the home. This one just always annoys me.

Fifth, if you are visiting when it is warm and the snow is melting, please do yourself a favor and pick up some ice melt for the front entry area as the deck above drips directly on the entry below. It filled with ice and was extremely slippery.

I'm not saying we had a terrible time- we had a great time as we were all together and there were plenty of rooms and beds which was nice. I would be very cautious of bringing more than 12 people though as the living room area is small for large groups.

Owner's Response: Again, I am so sorry for the inconvenience of the dishwasher, we did send Sierra Nevada Appliance Repair I believe the day of your arrival or the next day. The repair person diagnosed the problem as the float, causing water not to come in. He had cleared excess soap from it, but of course that did not solve the problem. We had HomeDepot install a new dishwasher on March 16th, I wish we could of had it done while you were there, but could not get on the schedule. In regards to the pool table, Matt, the owner of Bauman Billiard Services is coming out tomorrow. We live out of the area and depend on our property management company to keep our home in good shape, I have spoken to them and they will make sure that everything from your list will be taken care of, they also thought there was ice melt by the front door, it has been a tremendous snowy winter and lots of ice. They will make sure there are at least two bath towels for each person and washcloths, and that there is plenty of ice melt. They are a wonderful company and Nan the office manager said she had offered to have one of the housekeepers come up and do dishes, they do their best to accommodate each guest. We love our home and want our guests to be comfortable, so again please accept my apology. Evie
