Needs a few finishing touches...

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the house was great. Good location, quiet area, nice fenced yard. The house layout was good for a small group with 2BR and 2BA, an open floor plan, and slate tile floors. However, the house and/or management needed a few finishing touches to make it 5-star.

The hot tub did not work - and from the previous reviews it seems like it's been non-functional for a while. Either fix it or remove the photos/references from the ad.

The patio furniture is pretty much not usable. It's a very old plastic table/chairs set - I went to move the table out to use it and all four legs literally fell out from under it.

The BBQ grill is charcoal, which is fine, but there are no lighters or matches in the house. Most people are not going to be traveling with butane lighters, so if you're going to only offer a feature that requires being manually lit, provide a lighter.

The kitchen is bare bones. Yes, it's stocked with dishes and cookware, but there are no conveniences typically found in vacation rentals - like sugar/sweetener for coffee.

Again, these are minor things, but it resulted in a lot of trips to the grocery store just to get the basics commonly found in other vacation rentals.

Great Location - Lacks a few conveniences

  • 3 of 5

All in all a great property. Great for couples or small groups. Need to fix the hot tub or advertise that it's not working. The BBQ grill is charcoal, but the house didn't provide a lighter... I didn't see a fire extinguisher, either. Most vacation houses I've stayed at typically provide a few kitchen items like sugar or sweetener for coffee, cooking basics like spices, etc. This place was cleaned out bare. With a few upgrades, this could be a 5-star property.

Owner's Response: The property manager has picked up supplies to restock the house, the hot tub is being replaced mid-November, and the BBQ is being removed entirely as it is a fire hazard. We are sorry to see these were issues during this reservation.

Great property for groups and Pet Owners

  • 5 of 5

If you are traveling in a group or with a dog this is a great location. Lots of room for people and a fence for the dog.

Great for dogs

  • 5 of 5

The house was dog friendly since it had a fenced in yard. It was clean and kitchen was fully equipped to cook. Bedding was not the most comfortable but I have learned to expect that. I would recommend this house!

3596 Tamarack Avenue Review (S Lake Tahoe)

  • 4 of 5

Its a decent accommodation if you have a large group (6+). The cabin itself is pretty basic and I have stayed in better cabins before, esp for the price. But its clean, has all the basic amenities and is more than sufficient as a place to stay for a few days if you are mostly out and around town. Its ~ 25 min walk from the cabin to S. Lake Tahoe Blvd and it was pretty easy to get Uber. The internet was finicky and kept dropping quite often. Also the cabin gets quite hot during summer and the only cooling options are the ceiling fans which are not too effective, so plan accordingly. Overall I would rate it as a decent functional accommodation.
