About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 11

Situated comfortably next to the Kaspian Recreation Area, this spacious and dog-friendly Homewood vacation rental is ideally located to just about everything! From the shores of Lake Tahoe to the ski runs at Homewood, outdoor activities abound - although you may find that curling up in this peaceful getaway or having a soak in the private hot tub and reconnecting with your loved ones is all the recreation you need.

From the wood fireplace with brick facade and cozy couches, to the country decor and wood accents, this living room invites you are your guests to put your feet up. Featuring a large sectional couch surrounding a television and another sitting area with a plush leather couch in front of the fire, there is plenty of space to spread out and relax. You will love being able to escape to the big deck for a breath of fresh air and a moment of solitude among the beauty of the pines that surround this property.

Segue from country to cosmopolitan when you step into this fully equipped kitchen. Brightly lit, with lots of cabinetry and counter space, your chef will have everything at his/her fingertips, including a a big stainless steel fridge and built-in oven with stovetop ready to cook delicious meals. There's a microwave for quick snacks on the run or late-night popcorn and a dishwasher, so you have more time to enjoy your vacation! Be sure to pack your favorite bottle of red - wine glasses provided - and a bag or two of coffee beans for the coffee grinder and brewer.

A private bedroom furnished with soothing colors and textures and a king-sized bed awaits you on the first floor. Upstairs, you'll find two more bedrooms and a loft. One bedroom has two twin-sized beds and a bunk bed that has a twin on top and a full on the bottom, making it perfect for younger guests or some laid-back friends to share. Down the hall, there's even more space with another bedroom featuring a full-sized be and another twin. In case you need room for more, you will be happy to find a loft area with another bed.

Two bathrooms, one with a bath tub and one with a walk-in shower, ensure plenty of hot showers or baths. You and your ten guests will love gathering in the living room in the evening while having plenty of space to retreat at night. And no need to pack too much; there's a washer and dryer for your convenience. Up to two dogs are welcome to come along, though a nightly pet fee will apply.

Slide a CD into the player and enjoy some music as Fido stretches out in front of the fire. After a day out on beautiful Lake Tahoe, bring out your laptop to check the headlines with the free WiFi, or watch your favorite cable news show on the television. After dinner, watch a flick on the DVD player. Or, how about some old-fashioned family fun with a board game?

You will not have to go far to find a bike path, and a great recreation area for running, biking, rollerblading, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Homewood Resort, renowned for its "peak to shore" skiing - is just four minutes south. You will be happy to know that Squaw Valley, Alpine, and Northstar Ski Resorts are all within 25 miles of Homewood. Don't forget to bring your Sea Ray, there are five boat launches, two of which are right in Homewood. Golf addicts can tee up at nearby Tahoe City Golf Course or Squaw Creek, both less than 10 miles away. Or, for a night out with Lady Luck, make the half-hour drive north over the Nevada border and visit Crystal City's casinos.

Don't wait too long to book this West Shore Lakeview Beauty. You are a phone call or click away from soaking up the endless views of Lake Tahoe's sparkling blue water!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

The hot tub didn't work and the pier code didn't work.

The property looked like it was about half way through a bunch of do it yourself projects.

The wifi password was incorrect

The front deck was rotting, furniture was placed to cover the bad spots, and it wasn't even swept before we got there.

Poorly Managed, but quaint place to stay

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived, the lockbox code for getting the key for the house was incorrect. I called Vacasa. They gave me the code to a backup lockbox - however - there was no key in it. We figured out that the typo for the lockbox was a 0 at the beginning that didn't belong and did get into the house. It seems odd - unless the code was recently changed, other people before me must have had this same problem, right?

Similarly, the wifi network and password was not the one listed in the email. We were able to find the wifi hub and figured out how to connect from that.

The most disappointing part of the house was the fact that the hot tub was not operating. We had chosen this house over another option because of the hot tub. We found the tub with a few inches of water, and even when we filled it up, it had no power. They sent a repair person the next day while we were out skiing, but they failed to fix it and we were never informed that anyone had come. It was difficult to get a hold of Vacasa again, and when we did, they told us they had sent somebody who was going to come back. The repair person never came back. After many calls the next day, we were promised a discount due to the disrepair of the hot tub, but there has been no follow up on that either. Looking through the reviews from before my stay, somebody else had complained about the broken hot tub weeks before my visit, so it still hadn't been repaired in that time. Also strangely, the notes we got with the house make no mention of the hot tub at all. So between the lockbox code being wrong, the wifi being wrong, and the hot tub unmentioned, it felt like we had been emailed instructions for the wrong house. Also, Joni sent an email saying that she would help us during our visit, but never responded to any emails or calls.

Lastly, the dishwasher didn't work!

Other notes - it lists two full bathrooms, but only one has a shower. The other has a bath tub, no shower. Cleanliness was not the best - we found a knife stuck to the bottom of one of the pots. Don't forget to turn up the water heater!

It also has electric cables outside the doors to keep bears away.

It is dog friendly, has lots of beds, is close to the lake, neighbors an forested park, has good heating, and provides small shampoo/soap - So it does serve its purpose and can house many people/animals for a getaway, but don't expect top-tier maintenance and do expect some problem solving. Call beforehand to check if hot tub is working!

Perfect location, cosy and pretty clean

  • 4 of 5

House is perfectly located on the west shore of Tahoe and is in pretty good shape. We were with 4 people, but should be very comfortable with twice as much people as well.

This weekend the dishwasher was out of service and although some reviews mention this, we were unable to access the wood storage in the back of the house with the keys available.

Other than that, perfect get-away and I highly recommend it.

Cozy House

  • 3 of 5

Love the location of this property and the fact that you can bring your four legged friends is a major plus. The wooded area out back is just perfect for both summer or winter play. The house is a bit dated, which is fine by me, but several things weren't working (hot tub, dishwasher, wifi, no access to the wood). It takes awhile to heat up when you get there and definitely turn the water heater up to level B if you want to shower. The games and puzzles had unfortunately been mixed up all together. I think after sorting through it the only playable game is Trivial Pursuit. There is a chessboard and cribbage board. The puzzles are too mixed up to attempt. Most of the DVDs are missing or in the wrong cases. We were only able to find one children's movie, though there are several empty cases. I would actually stay here again because the location was ideal and the house very serviceable, but I would plan to bring my own games and movies. Vacasa was very nice about the amenities that were not available and will be issuing some appropriate credits to me, but just know if you book it you may not have everything listed available to you. You will have a great location, a nice partial view of the lake, and endless things to do in the surrounding areas.

Good location, badly managed

  • 2 of 5

The following are excepts from our email sent to the management. We were disappointed that we didn't receive any response. We were hoping the management would have made some effort to apologize or make up for these concerns but we advise any potential renters that you get what you pay for, and even less.

Our inconveniences are enumerated below:

1. Upon arrival, the code was not correct. There was a prompt response by phone, which was appreciated.

For the remaining issues, we received no response.

2. Several of the beds were not made. Sheets were found balled up in the dresser drawers and did not appear to be clean due to stains and odor.

3. The dishwasher was broken, would not close properly and several buttons when pushed would not light up. It never started at all after several attempts.

4. There was only 4 inches of water in the hot tub rendering it unusable during the weekend, and our email to notify the agency did not receive a response.

5. There were no dish towels available, so we used some cloth place mats that we found instead.

6. There were not enough towels for our group, until we found some additional ones in the dryer.

We understand that the house was older, and found that the house was true in many ways to the review and met our expectations in terms of number of beds and ability to accommodate our group. The view was very nice, and we can also say the bathrooms were clean and ready for use.

Perhaps our experience was unique, and the agency will tend to these issues before renting it again.

Two stars...We docked one star for hot tub not working, another for the minor inconveniences, and a third for not providing follow up.
