Wasn't as great as I hoped

  • 3 of 5

I really wanted to love this place, and how could I not with all the great reviews. But then we got there. The pictures don't lie, but they don't tell everything. The street had a lot of trash on it, cars on blocks, a dilapidated dresser and heater in the driveway. The neighbors had a very yappy dogs that yapped at all hours. (well, and some of the pictures are old, for example there is not a nice large grill just a small portable propane grill).

We couldn't get the air conditioner to work so we called the owner and asked how to make it work - they didn't have it because "it isn't necessary." I believe that is true most of the year but the cabin stayed between 76-79 while we were there. And, while opening the windows was their advice, they didn't all open or have screens. The ones we did open left a layer of pollen on all the furniture. We didn't feel safe keeping them open at night. It was never comfortable in there.

Also, I understand the need for a cleaning fee, but this fee was excessive considering what is expected. Run the dishwasher, strip the beds, start laundry, take out the trash. And yet, when the dog's toy rolled under the sofa it was shocking how disgusting it was under there. What is the $100 actually for? We were there for 2 nights.

Finally, I requested the cabin on June 1st. I had to reach out 2 more times before I heard from the owners just for verification. It was not until the day before we arrived that we actually got the answers and information needed to pay for and access the cabin. It was scary to take time off and put all of our eggs in one basket when it was the day before our trip and it could have been cancelled. When we finally spoke the owner said it was hard to manage the rental and her kids. I feel for her, but it we put a lot of time and effort into my birthday weekend and all of these things made it stressful and unpleasant. I am sorry that we ended up spending my birthday this way.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you had an unpleasant experience. I work hard at trying to make staying at minnow fun and easy. I understand this was your first time using vrbo and that you may be unfamiliar with some of the owners expectations. I do need to set some things straight however regarding your stay. 1. There was not a dresser and broken heater in our driveway. I cannot control how people maintain their properties several homes away. 2. We replaced the cheap coal burning BBQ with a Weber propane grill.. 3times the cost and much more user friendly. 3. 95% of homes, restaurants, shops do not have air conditioning in Tahoe. Usually ac is needed maybe 2 weeks out of the year. I do provide 2 ceiling fans, and 2 standing fans for your use and only 2 windows in the house do not have screens as they are being replaced. All the windows open. I never stated that ac was not necessary. I simply said please open the windows and use the fans. I also do not advertise air conditioning on vrbo. 4. Cleaning fee- it's what my cleaning service charges me. After every stay it is common to strip the beds, start the dishes, and take out the trash. Maybe you are unaware of the vrbo rules.. that being said, I appreciate the feedback about under the sofa. I will forward this to my cleaners. There are few houses in Tahoe that allow dogs. It does take extra time to clean afterwards. 5. The booking process. I do agree I did not respond faster to your request. I told you I was on vacation and had sent the paperwork and QuickBooks invoice for payment. I never received your paid invoice and we talked over the phone about the mix up. I then sent your check in info as soon as I received payment. Standard procedure. I do not allow access to the cabin without payment received. I am surprised by your response and I do apologize for your unhappy stay.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my boyfriend, husky and I! Very clean, great decor and a perfect amount of space. We loved the back yard and so did our dog! The house is also only about a 5 minute walk to the beach and right around the corner there are some cute shops and restaurants.

Perfect Location, Perfect Place for Spring Skiing

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay with our twenty something daughter. We had the bedroom and she slept on the couch. There were two rollaway beds but the couch was comfortable enough that our daughter just slept on the couch. The cottage were updated and all the appliances were just perfect. We would happily rent this again for a future spring ski trip to Tahoe.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for the family of 3, very cute and clean cottage with everything you need for the stay. Good location with easy access to everything we needed. Lake Tahoe with beautiful views is 2 minutes walk away from the cabin. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much for everything, Shannon (the owner).

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Shannon's cabin. It was the perfect size for our little group (two small families), and it was very well appointed and clean. The location was perfect for our ski trips to Diamond Peak and Squaw. There were a few maintenance issues, but Shannon responded and took care of everything right away. We would definitely stay there again.
