The best you can find

  • 5 of 5

This place is really awesome. I am impressed and so glad I was able to find it and rent it.

If you are looking for a luxury house for your vacation for very affordable price, this one is definitely the best option. You won’t regret for a second that you rent it. It’s so spacious. It’s very comfortable even for large group of people. And location is perfect. I agree with other comments, photos don’t really reflect how great the house is.

It has everything you need for living. You want be bored even if you stay at home whole day, there are plenty entertainments inside.

Owners are really friendly. They are always ready to help if you have any question. I had wonderful vacation there. Thank you so much.

Definitely 5 stars. I would give it 10 or more if I could.

An amazing week at this gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four plus another family of four had the best time staying at Joe and Cathy's house.

First of all, Joe, is awesome to work with. He's very responsive, has excellent communication (lets you know when your checks arrive, reminds you when your payments are due, etc) and considerate. For example, he emailed us while we were there to let us know that there's snowmelt in the garage for the incoming snow and would reimburse us if we needed more.

The house is spacious, CLEAN, comfortable, and very nicely furnished and decorated. We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The house has everything we need to stay entertained for the entire week: there are books, DVDs, puzzles, numerous sleds and saucers, and a pool table. It is conveniently located off the main road - short drive to Tahoe Donner skiing and Safeway, and walking distance to the Tahoe Donner Snow Park. At the same time, it's nicely tucked away so we had all the privacy we wanted.

It snowed one day during our stay so the kids and adults had a blast sledding down the driveway. We all had a fabulous time, and were all sad to leave. We look forward to coming back to this same house again in the future!

We love this house so much from design, decoration, and amenities. The house is really big and completely decorated. The kitchen is stunning with luxury applicances. Our family is so in love with the house, and the house is such a gem. We rented many vacation homes in lake tahoe before, but this house is definitely 10/10.

Another great stay...

  • 5 of 5

Second stay for our family. Place is just as great as the first time. In fact, it was even better. Basically getting million $$ amenities for Truckee motel prices. There isn't a better deal out there. As before, place was very clean when we arrived and we had no problems to speak of. Plenty of wood for the fire, everythng you need in the kitchen is provided (ie. pots and pans, dishes) and the bedrooms were all ready for our guests. Plenty of games to play, and even had Legos there for the little ones. Can't go wrong with this place. We will be back.

Perfect home for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous! Plenty of room for a large group with a dream kitchen, large dining table, game room downstairs, and a lovely deck for summer evenings. The iron-work throughout the home is breathtaking! I have stayed here twice now - once in the winter and once in the summer. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must in the winter as the driveway is steep but you can't beat the views of the forest in the backyard and the warmth of the grand fireplace. Personally, I loved the home in the summer as we spent lots of time on the deck. The kids loved the game room, the loft, and wandering the forest out back. Buy ice as the freezer doesn't have an ice maker despite wonderful kitchen appliances. The owners are wonderful to work with and have really made their home a fantastic rental!

Lovely spacious family home

  • 5 of 5

We (2 families with young children) stayed for a long weekend and were stunned when we drove up and opened the doors... the photos do not really do the house justice. The house is a beatifully furnished family home with well stocked kitchen and bathrooms (unlike so many rentals where we have struggled to find enough dishes/ linens). The rooms and layout are very spacious, and we especially enjoyed the kitchen with the long dining table... large enough to eat together without feeling on top of each other. We ate every meal in, and had to convince the kids to leave for activities. The kids loved the game room and were intrigued by the loft but we kept that off limits as it was too high for the preschooler. There are many stairs/ railings in the home and it might not be ideal for a daredevil toddler... however, the house is terrific for families who want comfortable public rooms with enough private bedroom/ bathroom space to easily accomodate 8-10 people. Everything appeared well maintained and it was one of the cleanest rentals I have ever been in.

The property is very convenient to the Tahoe Donner amenities, and we made good use of the owners' sleds and saucers... even saucering in the yard behind the house one morning.

Communication with the owners was excellent and prompt. They sent detailed information about the use of the house and were available for any questions... a very pleasant rental experience!
