Why Bob Kemp chose Al Tahoe

This property was purchased by my Parents in 1968 as a Vacation/Retirement home. They loved this place, as it was their little getaway from the pressures and stresses of everyday life, living and working in the Greater Bay Area. San Jose in particular. When my Parents passed away a few years back, the Cabin became ours. I vowed to keep this cabin in the family for future generations to enjoy as a rememberance of Bob and Shirley Kemp, my Mom and Dad.

Clean, Pocket Friendly Family Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cute little cabin. This is not a brand new cabin or even remodeled. It's a lot like others grandmas cottage in the woods. Yes it's old inside, but yes its also clean and sanitary; especially for a dog friendly cabin, it is well taken care of. And most importantly it was super affordable and our family would have had to skip a vacation this year without this affordable little cabin! My little ones shared the pull out sofa and ended up using an air mattress too as it wasnt firm enough for one of them. We loved the cozy little living room though where we all gathered for dinner and a movie or game each night. The beds in the rooms were SUPER comfortable and we got better sleep than at home. For this we were very thankful. We LOVED the backyard and had some lawn games we played and roasted marshmallows outside with the bbq. There is no a/c, so one room gets a bit warm in summer. So, if you are sensitive to heat, bring an fan or two. The large box fan was great for the window in the living room and kept the rest of the house nice and cool. By evening the cool mountain air cools off the house nicely. All kitchen appliances and cookware worked well and served their purpose for all our meals. Washing machine and dryer worked better than my nearly new front load set! The bikes were super handy as grandma and grandpa joined us and didnt have bikes. Local trails took us on a great 8 mile ride right from our cabin. You are a short 5 minute bike ride to the shores of lake tahoe and Ronald Reagan beach! Great restaurants within walking and riding distance, and live music at the park in the shores a 10 minute walk away! Try Red Hut Cafe for breakfast! Heavenly resort a 10 minute drive, Camp Richardson a 15 to 20 minute drive depending on traffic. Thank you Bob you were a fabulous and very responsive host! We cant wait to come back!

Cozy home

  • 4 of 5

This place was just about perfect for our stay. The yard has a short fence around it so it would have been perfect for our dog too, had we brought her. The only thing that would have improved the stay is had there been thick curtains for the windows in the bedrooms. There are just those plastic blinds, and it got really bright really early since we were staying at Midsummer. I hung some blankets and towels over them and they were okay. Also the house next door was getting a new roof put on during our stay so it was a bit noisy but that probably only happens once in a blue moon. Overall a very nice place to stay.

I want to start off by saying that this rental was priced extremely well and we were able to book at the last minute. The host Bob- I believe was very helpful and responded in a timely fashion. I would not say I am a picky person or high maintenance but there are some major issues with the house.

With that being said the house needs some major cleaning. Upon arrival we discussed taking photos of the rug because of the amounts of stains on them. We were traveling with our dog and did not want to be blamed for them. A chair in the living room had a hole in it, the way it was fixed was with clear packing tape. This is an issue for me because you can just throw out the chair or buy one at the thrift store inexpensively. There was indoor small throw rugs out on the deck that just needed to be thrown away. The view from one of the bedrooms into the back yard was looking at an old toilet. This was weird to me because it was right next to a shed, just put the toilet in the shed or again throw it away. The house needed a deep clean and just some simple things to really make it amazing. The house stated it could sleep 4 or six and there was two of us but only two towels and the wash cloths were dingy and gross thankfully I brought my own. Most VRBO have a manual about the house and how to run things like the heater or just general rules- This one did not and I think these are extremely helpful.

Again I want to stress for the price is right but some of the things were really hard for me to get over. I am only writing the review because I wish that someone would have written one like this I would not have booked the house.
