Perfect Tahoe Rental - spacious/clean/comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 young children - have stayed at many rentals in Donner and this is by far our favorite - the most clean and comfortable. My family has stayed here twice with more than enough room to house an additional 6-8 people with a large master, 2 doubles and a kids room that sleeps 4 - 6 kids. The kitchen is clean and well stocked to feed a large group. The location is perfect and the host provide guest passes with access to the Tahoe Donner facilities including pools, gyms and restaurants. Did i mention the BBQ and the hot tub.

Both Joel and his wife were responsive to any and all questions. I would gladly stay again! In fact, I hope to use the house for a family reunion with my brother and his family for their first trip to Tahoe. I'm sure they'll love it.

Pros:

- Spacious

- Clean

- Comfortable

- Well stocked

- Perfect location

- Responsive and appreciative hosts

- Everything you need for a Tahoe retreat

Cons:

- Nothing for a family looking for peace and quiet.

Overpriced compared to other TD lodging

  • 2 of 5

This was the fifth house we have rented through the years coming to Truckee for the months of July and August. There were several things that made our stay inconvenient compared to other rentals. First there was no closet access in the master bedroom. Owner had it locked and not available. We had to use the one in the hallway, small and filled with brooms, vacuum cleaners and house supplies. No garage door opener. Storage in the kitchen limited because several cabinets locked by the owner. TV at times worked fine then other times the cable box would suddenly turn off and reboot. While the living room is large and spacious we would not rent this again for a long term stay. There are many other rentals in Tahoe donner and truckee that are newer construction, have better accommodations, and are less expensive.

Owner's Response: After 5 years, there was bound to be one bad apple in the bunch! We’ve been successful over the years because we provide a great experience for our guests, and we go the extra mile to ensure their comfort. Guests, in turn, tend to be very courteous and respectful of our home. This particular guest was very hard on our house and caused damage in two separate areas. I will try to address each of his comments in turn. (1) There is an ample sized closet, which is completely empty, two feet outside the master bedroom. The master closet, which is only 6 feet away, is locked. Many homeowners, such as us, designate one or two small areas in the home to store personal effects. (2) There are two garage opener buttons: one outside the garage and one inside the garage. (3) Two cabinets out of 20 are locked with personal effects. There is no shortage of available cabinet space. (4) This guest called me about an issue with the tv that I tried to resolve over the phone. I also offered to send our handyman to the house. He told me the next day that he “figured out” the issue and no help was needed. We have had zero issues with the entertainment system before or since his stay. (5) The house was constructed in 2001 and all furnishings and fixtures were purchased between 2012-2015. Most of these comments are intentionally misleading or simply not true. I would encourage readers to check out our other reviews or contact me directly with any questions. Thank you!

Really beautiful home with high-end linens!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, plus our two 4 legged friends, really enjoyed our stay. The home is very nicely appointed and super clean! I highly recommend this home for your entire family. Our kids were suppose to join us, but came down with the flu the night before :( Nonetheless, we made the most of our stay and enjoyed the peace and quiet of this very nice neighborhood. The drive to Sugar Bowl is only 15 minutes which was a huge plus. I would love to go in the summer.

Wonderful place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this beautiful home. The home is spacious and well appointed particularly for a family or two. The owner is responsive and considerate and the location is loaded with fun wintery activities for the whole family. Just bring your chains if you plan to visit in the winter the driveway has a good grade to it and can be icy depending on weather conditions. We will be back.
