Terrible experience - do not book!

  • 1 of 5

It was a great visit with our family and friends however after getting past the surface level of the house we have been very disappointed with how much we paid and the quality and condition of the maintenance of the house. I would expect that paying over $2600 for 3 nights the quality and condition would be exceptional however over our stay we notice several issues with several items such as the following…

1 Sauna difficult to turn on and quite the task to get to work

2 Tup in master is filthy - I gave my 4 and 6 year old a bath in here and upon turning on the jets were horrified as the tub filled up with black bacteria shooting out of the jets

3. after digging out 7+ feet of snow to get to the BBQ and hot tub we uncovered a broken BBQ and a unkept hot tub with cover containing mildew

4. Stove cracked and right side only turns on with a lighter

5. Living room fire place doesn’t fully light

6. dryer squeaks very loudly and heard through out entire house even with door closed - turns out to not even work so we had to skip a snow day due to wet clothes that couldn't dry

7. Dishwasher tray does not have wheels and difficult to maneuver

8. downstairs bedroom with TV has no DVD or cable hooked up so TV is pointless

9. downstairs bedroom with TV and DVD has no wires to hook the DVD player up so cannot use either…

10. Downstairs master has broker headboard

11. downstairs bedroom with adjoining bathroom has broken blinds

12. most stools at the kitchen counter are broken.

13. master bedroom upstairs has the worst mattress ever. Feels like a futon

It has now been 22 days since our departure and although told 9 days ago our $900 deposit was ready to be mailed, it still has not been received even though their contract states it will be mailed out 10 days after departure.

True scam and very deceiving -- DO NOT BOOK!

This home is absolutely amazing. The kitchen was beautiful and everything we needed was at our figure tips. The area is perfect for a hike or trail run. Great for a large group of friends or family who are looking to stay in the Tahoe area. It's not too far from the lake or casinos (driving is required though). The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. My friends already want to go back. We'll definitely use Apex again!!! Thank you Apex Getaway for accommodating us!!

Large space and well taken care of home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. The kitchen was very well stocked with supplies.

We did have a problem with a clogged up toilet. We called the manager and it was promptly fixed.

Great stay and would definitely recommend!

Awesome Tahoe Home With Complete Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This Tahoe House is Awesome. With 6 bedrooms which comes with either a king size, 2 queen beds, 2 double beds and 6 beautiful bathrooms will definitely accommodate a big family like mine. The location was perfect close to grocery stores, the casino and beaches and lakes. The open airy feeling felt great in the back of the house and also private because there weren't any neighbors around in the back of the house. The house was equipped with everything from towels to garbage bags and clean and very cozy. The indoor pool was the best part of the house for the kids as well as the pool table. The kitchen was the best part of the house for the adults. It had a lot of counter space and was bright and open during the day with the nice windows surrounding the kitchen. This was an awesome experience for our family and we'll definitely be back. Customer service was also definitely great working with Liezel. Thanks!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely gorgeous! Great for a large group of friends or family who are looking to stay in the Tahoe area. We usually hang out at the lake and casinos during our visits to Tahoe, but we found ourselves perfectly satisfied with just hanging out at this beautiful home the whole weekend. Thank you Apex Getaway for accommodating us!!
