About Carmen

We purchased this home in 1988, and have done extensive remodeling along with two additions. We love the beauty and the peace of Lake Tahoe, and all the amenities available within our Dollar Point Community ( Pool, Tennis, Private Beach), and also nearby (skiing, biking, restaurants, hiking, river rafting, and Casinos.)

Carmen purchased this house in 1988

Why Carmen chose Tahoe City

It's a great place for a family vacation, both summer, autumn, and winter. The Community Pool and Tennis, plus private Beach and Tennis provide so much variety for the family. There are life guards on site, along with swimming, and tennis instruction. The house is cozy and faces south toward the Lake which provides a warm, bright atmosphere. Winter access is level. World class skiing is nearby, and restaurants and shopping abound.

Also nearby are hiking and biking trails, river rafting on the truckee River. Nearby on the Nevada side of the lake is world class Sand Harbor Beach

What makes this house unique

Dollar Point is centrally located. We have enjoyed snow shoeing and cross country skiing from our back door; And there are groomed Cross Country trails within minutes. The side of our property allows the ability to build a 'toboggan run' in the winter. In the summer there are numerous hiking and biking trails, and we are close to the entrance to the Pacific Rim Trail. North Shore Casinos are 10 miles away. For a memorable day at the beach, visit Sand Harbor with its magnificent Alpine setting.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Love this home. Great for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks in the summer on a family vacation. Four adults and 3 children. It's clean and well maintained. The owner takes pride in keeping this place updated over the years. The five bed rooms and spacious deck make it easy for a large group to spread out or all gather in the living room or on the deck. The hot tube is like new and kept very clean by regular weekly maintenance. The kids especially enjoyed the locked access beautiful large community pool and beach. The staff at both locations were friendly and professional making it a safe place for kids. I enjoy making this a home base for long day hikes a short drive away in the beautiful Sierra Mountains. We always have a great time here and have returned many times over the years. It is our favorite family vacation destination.

My husband and I have stayed at this property on five occasions. We have always found the home to be well equipped, very clean and comfortable. We have benefitted from the continual updates and attention the owners pay to this home. The view from the deck is beautiful! We both highly recommend this home and hope to return again.

Thanks Emil and Jean for another great get away. We always enjoy your home and especially with your new bonus room. The 3rd bathroom was also a treat for the teenage girls. This worked great with our large family as the kids now have 2 areas to gather by age(teens and preteens) separate from the adults. When the kids weren't there this also provided some quiet reading space. We always enjoy the restaurants in town and will be back next year.

Personal Review and rebuttal to review written by Sierra Vacation/Colfax in August 2013

  • 4 of 5

I live summers in the area where this home is located so I see all of the renters of this house that come and go. Also, We have rented this home when we need additional space for family, guests or group activities. This home is a very fine place to stay, wonderful location, access to all the amenities of Dollar Point, and is a great value. I see the cleaning people come in after every renter leaves and the home is always in terrific condition. This is a fine home for anyone looking for a quality vacation home, summer or winter, in the Lake Tahoe area. No one should hesitate to stay in this home - this is confirmed by all of the other reviews located on this site and I know from personally talking to many of the renters over the years they were all very pleased in their selection of this home for their Tahoe vacation.

One final note - I do remember the renters that wrote the negative review. Quite frankly it is a good thing that they will not be coming back to this home - and hopefully the neighborhood. They and their attitude will not be missed.

Owner response to the previous negative comments

  • 5 of 5

The problems encountered by the Aug 7 renters are regrettable, and we publically apologize. The finding of personal items in or under the furniture in unacceptable. The cleaning people have been reprimanded and put on probation. We would have taken more serious action but this is the first complaint we have ever received.

Upon hearing of the complaint, the cleaning people immediately returned and rectified what they could. They refunded their cleaning fee. We also offered to have the carpet professionally cleaned, but as the complaint noted, they refused b/c of the inconvenience an intrusion.

The only excuse we can offer is that the cleaning people were rushed. Our home is a popular rental. The summer of 2013 was extremely busy with bookings from late June through Labor Day. This meant "back-to-back" rentals all summer with a short "window" between for cleaning. In their rush they missed things. For the future we have authorized extra time for cleaning ( at our expense) and requested that add'l people be added to the cleaning team when we have 'back-to-backs"

We had planned several maintenance items for the summer of 2013, but b/c of the tight schedule they were delayed until September. We had hoped that the weekly cleaning would suffice till this major work could be done, but regrettably it wasn't sufficient.

Over the years we have tried to upgrade our home to keep it bright, modern, and clean. We have remodeled the kitchen, and made two major additions to the house, adding two all purpose rooms that can be used as relaxation areas by day and sleep at night. This has proven very popular for families, and anyone who wants to "get away" for a moment or two.

Over time we have replaced much of the furniture in the house and added a two level deck. ( also replacing a damaged deck board mentioned in the complaint). Early on we added a Hot Tub with weekly service plus monthly pest control. We upgraded several Service Offerings including free Internet, and Dish TV with a 55 inch TV and special movie package.

Our Community, Dollar Point has done much to maintain its reputation as one of the premier communities on Lake Tahoe.

They offer Swim ( large Olympic Pool), with groomed grounds for bocci, picnics, etc, and two Tennis Courts. Swim and Tennis Lessons are also offered. The private beach has a long dock for boats, BBQ's, and rest rooms.

However, nothing we have done, or say, is an excuse for what happened which we believe is a onetime occurrence.
