The only bathroom in the house had a shower that was not working. The bathmat and towels had not been washed after the last occupant. It took 2 days for the management company to schedule a plumber, who had to replace the shower head and a few valves. There was a heavy storm so the delay was understandable. What was very disappointing was the attitude of the manager we spoke to at Century 21: she was defensive, seemed to blame the plumbing problem on us ("you must have turned off the heat", unlikely in 25deg weather!) and never offered an apology or an accommodation for the condition of the house. Our request for a late checkout was immediately denied of course. I did not bother to even suggest some form of monetary compensation, but I did tell the folks at Century 21 that I would be writing this up.
There were some other minor inconveniences that were not mentioned in the VRBO description. Garage has no automatic door opener. No cable/local TV. No dishwasher. On the plus side, the washer/dryer is conveniently located and the bedrooms are a good size with large closets.
It was as expected and much better. Rooms where very well kept and amenities were sufficient for our cozy stay in wintery Tahoe. Just a quarter mile from Big Blue Tahoe and very close to modern amenities as well. Diamond Peak ski area was just 20mins away.
A great place, would love to go back.
We had a great summer vacation. The rental home was close to shops, the lake, and groceries, everything was within walking distance. Everything in the home was clean and ready to go. My family and I had a very good experience with the rental home. I would rent it again in a heartbeat. Thank you Stephanie at Tahoe North Rentals.
Over the course of 72 hours we had the plumber twice, the gas utility man and an electrician all visit during our vacation. This was obviously pretty disruptive and not conducive to relaxing. We paid to stay in a house with no gas, no hot water and problematic electrical outlets. It's pretty surprising it was rented out in this condition in the first place. But even beyond those larger issues there were several smaller ones. This house is hot and extremely difficult to cool down. There is no outside space beyond an empty dirt yard with timber and nails in a pile. We slept with windows open and no covers even though it was 70 outside. Several of the windows didn't open and the others were difficult to get open and dirty. The house was dark and some of the appliances didn't work (but that could be related to the electrical problems).
There are some cute aspects to this cabin. Someone bought a lot of kitsch vintage kitchen items. The beds were newer and comfortable. These things would have been charming had the bones of the place been solid and functional.
Our family has rented cabins in Kings Beach for the last 15 years, and we have had many at this price point so know what to expect. The myriad problems and decrepitude of this cabin do not warrant any price point. To be fair, we brought these issues to the management and they did make some restitution. But we still won't be back.
