Why Heather M. chose Truckee

We purchased this home in the Tahoe Donner association because of its location and all the fabulous amenities for both adults and kids!

What makes this house unique

This home has a large fairly private lot! High up off of the main street, kids can play in the front and sled at the house. There are some decent hills on the side yard!

Great Home for a Weekend Getaway

This home worked out perfectly for our weekend company trip up to Tahoe. The house was clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in the area. :)

family voted this home best of the 17 years we've come to Truckee/Tahoe Donner

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Truckee/Tahoe Donner every year for a winter outing and have rented homes each time. The way this house is set up for a large family is easy and enjoyable. The home owners seem to take efforts to make for a great stay. Much appreciated.

Family Ski Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I stayed here for a long weekend, 6 adults and 5 children ranging from 9 months to 13 years. We found the house to be just what we were looking for.

Great home, great location

  • 4 of 5

We took a group of three adults and five kids to this house for a three nights and it left me wishing we had done three more. The house was fantastic and the eight of did not come close to filling it. A week before Christmas, we had hoped for snow at the property but can't blame Truckee for the weather...

Location right off of the main road was great- kitchen really had everything we needed and then some. On the last night one of the kids stumbled across a game cupboard and we all cozied up on the large couch with a fire roaring - couldn't top that. We skied at boreal and could not have stayed at a more convenient spot for that. There may be better locations if you want to be in Tahoe for the trip, but if you're willing to make the short drive to get there this place cannot be beat.

As I saw in other reviews, the owners were a bit slow to respond leading up to the trip, but when I needed to reach them during our stay they were easy to reach.

Nice House, Unresponsive Owner

  • 3 of 5

We booked this house for a women's golf group of 14 ladies. The house nicely slept and accommodated our group but I wanted to note a few things so other renters are familiar with the layout and challenges. The good: great sleeping arrangements, good size kitchen with all things needed to cook meals, large couch and tv. The house is well equipped for entertaining and central to TD, but on the main drag. The not so good: the two bedrooms on the main floor that sleep 10 people share only one bathroom. The twin mattresses were fairly uncomfortable for adults but probably good for kids. Huge space for kids to entertain themselves! Not enough towels for all guests. The bad: no outdoor dining furniture or other outdoor furniture to enjoy - which in the summer is a must in my opinion. Not enough trash cans to handle the amount of guest that this house holds. There was leftover trash from the previous renter, so we were limited to what we could throw away. The super bad: insinuating we left the place dirty and then taking a small amount of money from the security deposit. If you rent here, take before and after pictures to avoid the issue. We have rented many places and never been accused of leaving a place dirty and when I asked about specifics, I got no response (see note below).

Note: the owners are really a non responsive owner. Once I sent my payment, I virtually got no response from the owner about a follow up question that I had and whether they even received my signed contract. Responses to email and phone messages went unanswered until I made an urgent inquiry. Wasn't sure this was legitimate until I got to the house. Please know I understand and appreciate an owner's busy life, but they are managing a rental property after all. I hope they understand that when emails and messages go unanswered, it makes the booking kind of questionable. When someone pays a significant amount and no response is given to contract confirmation and a simple house question, it makes one worry about this being a scam rental. In my experience, reservations with VRBO always go well and I've never had issues with owners being moderately attentive to confirmation and requests.

Overall, I would recommend this place for large gatherings, but protect your investment and expect nothing from the owner.
