It could use some TLC
Pros: The house is conveniently and centrally located to a lot of restaurants and other needs; we could be anywhere in the local area in just minutes. The gas fireplace is very nice and adds ambiance. The kitsch factor in decorating is huge; bears, bears, bears everywhere! But it's Tahoe, so why not?
Perhaps the greatest pro are the views. Although they are not unobstructed and there are neighbors close by (including in front), the views still cannot be beat. Make sure to go for a walk around the area, don't just drive up and back, or you'll miss additional perspective of the lake.
Cons: We stayed there, just the two of us, a couples / romantic getaway and tried to decide which bedroom to sleep in. The Master bedroom has a queen which is beyond firm; it is an extremely hard and very uncomfortable mattress. My girlfriend couldn't sleep in it. There was a king sized bed in the other room and it has to be the oldest or most worn out mattress I have ever slept on in any rental. There was a wear pattern so significant that it created a deep "valley" on the one side of the mattress. This is very unusual and/or low quality. I do VRBO and similar rentals often (about once a month or every other month); my advice to the owners or property management is to replace these mattresses right away.
Another con is that it is not secluded at all. There's nothing that can be done, but you won't know it by looking at the pictures. Just keep in mind that as you're in the hot tub on the deck, there is a road directly below you and people will occasionally walk by or drive by. We still used the hot tub regardless of the lack of privacy. We even struck up a conversation with the neighbor while we were soaking in the tub!
I also thought it was strange that there were several bulbs burned out in the property, including the garage; that doesn't seem to safe to me. This is something else that should be addressed right away.
Lastly, in all properties I've rented at this price point, when there is a garage with a garage door opener, a remote is left in the garage to borrow during your stay. It is just a nice touch and more convenient.
