Adequate, but disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The major problem is that the property is misrepresented on the website. Specifically:

-Rather than 2 master bedrooms with king size beds as listed, there is only 1 king size bed, and none of the other bedrooms with queen size beds could in any way be described as master bedrooms.

-The website mentions patio. While there is a small one, we found all of the furniture filthy, without cushions and all piled up against the back wall of the patio. We were planning on enjoying the mountain outdoors for eating and socializing, but the patio we found was unusable, unless we cleaned everything up ourselves, which should not be expected by renters or their guests.

-The description of the property promises a fitness room with equipment. There is neither.

-There were no garage door openers, which was very inconvenient. When contacted, the owner verified that "several renters ago" they had been left in a rental car. Given the amount of time that they could have been replaced, we found it unacceptable that no effort had been made to do so. Such situations should be anticipated and planned ahead for by the owner.

-The tv in the master bedroom did not work. Upon contact, the owner explained that he didn't use that tv much, which seemed an unacceptable excuse. By the way, the ledge the tv sits on is disgustingly dirty, and clearly hasn't been dusted for months.

-In general, the house badly needs some maintenance. The carpet is very dirty and stained throughout. One of the window blinds in the living room does not operate, and another is badly torn and frayed on one side.

-We complied with the owner's requirements and took all of our trash from the week to the dump ourselves before leaving. This was not a big problem, but it would seem that it should be the responsibility of housekeeper's job to do that as part of their cleaning after renters depart.

-Overall, if renters are charged premium prices, the product delivered should be of premium quality, and this home certainly was not. Of equal concern to VRBO should be the significant misrepresentation of the property on your website. This was our first experience with VRBO, and we may try it again. However, this was not a good start. Of note, after reading this review before submission, my wife says she would not be inclined to try VRBO again.

This place is amazing!! Great for children!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has exceeded my expectations. The great room is perfect for family reunions and getting the kids together to celebrate Christmas. The owner has designed this home with very efficient use of space, spacious kitchen, window view of snow is perfect, backyard perfect for children to play in a secured area in the snow, and much more! So many positives to this cabin, and definitely no need to keep looking - this place is the one and will be our future Tahoe Christmas vacations !!!

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! We had family in town for Christmas from Denmark, England and Australia and we all had the best time at Northstar. The house was beautiful, accommodating all of us very comfortably. The great room was where we all spent our time together after a great day of skiing and snowboarding. There was plenty of room for all of us to lounge around and the large fireplace was so warm and cozy. The house is well-stocked, clean, easy to get to and the free shuttle service picked us up and dropped us off right out the front door! The owner is easy to talk to, very responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It is a great place for a big family!

GREAT NORTHSTAR HOME

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home in the northstar village, big multilevel, great for multiple families. We went for my Dad's 80th and everyone young and old had a great time. Close to the resort and on the free shuttle route - the home has everything you need and more! - we will be back many times!! One of our best family vacations.

absolutely 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

High end rental with modern design and high quality, with very comfortable beds, clean supplies and plenty of amenities. Clear instructions on how to operate. Bonus room can sleep another family. Both adults and kids enjoyed our time there. Free shuttles to Northstar ski resorts, no needs to drive once you get there. Owner is very responsive and accommodating.

This is it!

  • 5 of 5

After much searching on VRBO - this is it! We enjoyed an awesome family weekend in this beautiful Northstar home. Truly, the photos do not do this house justice. It is absolutely more beautiful in person! We had 14 people from age 10 to 80 - there was plenty of room for everyone with the 5 bedrooms and the bonus room for the kids. We used the Northstar Club facilities and took the gondola up to high mountain for some hiking...lots to do at this vacation spot in the summer. We appreciated the huge refrigerator and spacious kitchen for cooking. We were pleased that their was plenty of table seating as well. We'd love to stay again on our return trip to Northstar.

This vacation home is within the Northstar Development. Northstar Village is 1 mile up the private road. Buss drops you off and comes direct to door step. No need to drive anywhere. From the village you can tram up to the Ritz Carlton.

I built the home and its super quiet, well insulated, pretty custom. You will love the kitchen...
