Have had very positive experience renting this property year after year and know we will always spend a pleasant and comfortable vacation here. Great house and great owner. Highly recommend this property for vacation rental. It’s home away from home ! House is spacious and clean and comfortable. Four nice bedrooms with plenty of room for a group.

Very enjoyable stay-Christmas 2017!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is centrally located on the Pioneer Trail. It's away from the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe in a quiet neighborhood, but within 10 to 15 minutes of grocery stores Highway 50 and Stateline casinos.

The cabin is well appointed and has just about everything you need in the kitchen, including a blender. Heating and air is a little tricky balancing between the downstairs gas fireplace and the upstairs central heat and air--a minor inconvenience. The owner has young children and there are toys and games for the little kids.

The hot tub in the back yard is very enjoyable, but a little cold getting in and out when the temperature drops down in the 10's adn 20's. Then someone has to cover and lock it up when done. But it's very clean and hot enough to make it worthwhile even in cold weather.

The owner Tom, is very responsive and returns calls or texts promptly. He's available to help with any issue. I couldn't get the TV/cable to work properly and he did a Facetime session with us to help solve the problem. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and the grandkids got to experience the little snow we had for the very first time. We made some good memories!

Very child friendly, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying here. We were traveling with a 15 month old and the house couldn't have been better. There is a pack n play, a cold air humidifier, an abundance of toys, a fabulous playset outside and a dark room that was perfect for our little one to nap and sleep in. The decorations are minimal, which we appreciated with a young one that likes to play with everything he can get his hands on. For the adults, the hot tub is large with a heated path when you get out on those cold nights, there are bicycles for those so inclined, a gas grill for all your grilling needs, and a kitchen that's easy to cook in with everything you need. The beds are comfortable with plenty of room. The location is great, just off pioneer trail, you're minutes from downtown Tahoe, as well as minutes to the Y and areas like Camp Richardson and the Beacon. We would highly recommend staying here and will definitely stay here in the future.

South Lake Tahoe home was really great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our family time at this home. It had lots of good usable space for our family. Tom was very responsive and attentive to any questions I had throughout the booking process and once we were at the property. The swing set behind the house was a huge hit with our 3 year old grandson and the ability to hike around the grounds behind the house was also something we enjoyed. Would definitely consider staying here again.
