The Owner purchased this chalet in 2008
We are the Builder & Owner of this Property. We have lived in Tahoe for 40+ years and just love it here!! Where else would I build a vacation home.
The rental was great as usual. This will be a family tradition. Thanks Rich!
This chalet was perfect for our project team's needs. We were able to work, eat and relax together in style. After snug travel in a van it was terrific to spread out. Bedrooms on three levels so early birds and night owls were both happy. Spacious kitchen/great room made meal preparations easy and the large table/pit group sofa made for comfortable briefings. The owners were super responsive to our needs. This is our new "go to" location.
The property is just awesome. Perfect for the two families. Beds for all 9 of us. It was in Immaculate condition. Owner was easy to work with and having the washer and dryer along with the other amenties made for a great New Years week trip.
It was a great rental.
Great location, next to anything and everything you need
4 levels-plenty room for the 11 of us
provided laundry soap, dish soap, etc.
snowball fights with the neighbors
There weren't enough pots and pans to cook for 11 people, a few kitchen items were missing, like a strainer, a noodle spoon, etc.
There wasn't any shampoo or soap the first night we stayed, we texted the owner and he brought some over the next night.
An extra towel per person would have made a huge difference. We each recieved one "set" which was a face towel, hand towel, and one regular towel. I would have gladly traded in my hand towel for an extra towel. Had to go from hot tub towel to shower towel back to hot tub towel...
The other visitors in this area were a lot of fun to snowball fight with, and everyone was fun and easy going. I would stay here again.
My friends and family and I enjoyed staying at this rental.
On the up side, the building itself is built as a luxury, five star condo. High ceilings, good floor plan, and luxury bathrooms, accommodates a lot of people and is in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is very spacious and easy to cook in and the large 10 person dining room table is great for large parties. The pool table provided hours of evening entertainment.
On the down side:
The cookware was very low quality, scratched teflon that is probably a health hazard to use. This was a big deal to us as the adults in our party are good cooks and we planned to do most of our own cooking. I should have read the other reviews and brought my own pots and pans and our own sponges and dishtowels.
The hot tub was okay, but had way too much chlorine and the there was no light bulb for the outside light near the hot tub.
This next issue may even be a legal issue. Two of the smoke detectors were missing, and where they should have been wires were just hanging out of the ceiling.
Wifi was super slow. I could surf the web on my cellphone 10X fast than using the Wifi. The 50" flatscreen TV was OK, but there was only 15 channels we were able to get and the TV is angled up towards the ceiling.
The last down side is that this condo was the epitome of a vacation rental. There was not a single wall hanging (except for the random instructions stating how to use the hot tub and what to do upon check out). It also needs a deep cleaning. Some of the base boards looked like they had dust caked on them.
Despite the few flaws, I would still recommend this place to friends and family.
First & foremost, my expectations were exceeded with this rental. Great location, quiet neighborhood, good value! That being said, there were a few minor issues - but the good definitely out-weighed any hiccups we encountered.
* The house is newer construction & could easily accommodate multiple families comfortably - lots of room to move & storage for our stuff. I couldn't help but unload my small suitcase into dresser drawers and onto the provided hangers because I immediately felt at home.
* The décor is minimal & neutral giving you the feeling that you're on vacation at a hotel or B&B instead of feeling like you're staying in a strangers home among their personal belongings. There were plenty of clean towels neatly stowed in each room & and the bed linens were simple, fresh & inviting.
* The main living space is a perfect area for the family to gather & interact with one another. It has an open floor plan & the couch is perfect for the entire family to enjoy the 3 movie channels - Showtime, HBO & Starz (I believe).
THE LESS-THAN-POSITIVES (minor, but worth noting)
* The front door lock box doesn't seem to lock from the outside when the code is entered. We didn't discover this until the end of our stay, but there appears to be an alignment issue & should be corrected for security purposes.
* The house could use an overall 'deep' cleaning. Areas like fan blades, drawer interiors, the ceiling above the stove, a couple burnt lightbulbs, etc - appear to have been overlooked by the cleaning crew. Additionally, my mom advised that the hot tub has a few broken jets & a dirty film surfaced around her when it was turned on. Also, the chlorine ratio bleached her black tank top orange, so it needs adjusting.
3) The TV's & remotes need some attention. For example, the DVD in the top floor bedroom didn't work & one of the lower rooms was missing a remote. The main living room remote was also sticky & missing it's back cover.
Finally, just a suggestion -- it would be AWESOME if the owner could provide 2 inexpensive baby gates for both staircase entrances on the main floor for families w/ small children. Keeping our curious 1 1/2 year old son from taking a bad fall kept us busy & proved to be challenging. I know mom's would be VERY appreciative!
At the end of the day, this rental was perfect for us. We even chose to stay an extra day! I would HAPPILY recommend it & look forward to renting it again in the future!
Babysitting is available
