Wonderful stay for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two small kids and had a fantastic time! The cabin is well stocked and very clean. Beach chairs and umbrellas were available to take to the beach! It is located next to a meadow which was perfect for the kids to run around. The location is also very convenient for exploring the area. Will definitely stay again!

Great property with convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the property. It was easy to access and the instructions easy to follow. The house itself was just right – the books and décor added a nice personal touch, while the pinball machine and TV entertainment setup gave us enough reason to rarely step outside, except for walks. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances. We will surely look at this place for planning our next vacation.

Quiet and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin in Tahoe off the Keys. We enjoyed our stay here. The house is cosy and comfortable and well stocked with dishes and condiments. It was nice that there was also shampoo and body wash in the bathrooms and plenty of towels. The street is very quiet and peaceful considering it's just off of the keys! The beds were very comfortable and my daughter had fun on the pinball machine. If you are staying here you might want to note that there is no garage to store bikes or boards. So you will have to keep them locked on your car. Overall we loved this little place. The owner was also very prompt when I called him about the barbecue utensils, so that was a plus knowing if we had an issue he would respond immediately. Thumbs up for this cabin.

Had a great time in a cozy house. Would go back again!

  • 5 of 5

Upon checking in, my family and I felt very comfortable. The house was very clean, well equipped and safe. The heater was great too. We didn't know what the interior warmth was going be like since we went up during a very cold time of year. As soon as we turned the heater up, we felt the whole house getting warm. We'd love to come back and stay another time.

Owner's Response: Our vacationer, Nhat, used 8 rolls of toilet paper for a 2 day stay. They left the downstairs toilet clogged with #2 and left the cabin. They also left electronic equipment which I promptly and courteously mailed back. My cleaning person complained that it took her 2 hours of plunging before clearing the toilet and asks for $35 for the extra time. I cancelled the plumber who wanted $200 to come out. I refunded Nhat all but $35. I did not charge him the $13 it cost me to ship back his electronics equipment. In 7 years on VRBO, we finally got a bad vacationer. It's rare to have a vacationer not treats your home like their own.
