Reviewer Comments:

The house was beautiful, very roomy, comfortable and had many amenities. I think tho you should make it more clear about how to deal with the "Bear Wire." Arriving it scared me to open the doors but once I knew what to do safely I was ok. I never touched the wire again. Also make sure the WiFi is working properly. Other than that I would definitely stay there again, actually thinking strongly about renting in the winter. We spent a lot of time at Meeks Bay with our friends as it is a sandy beach and not too far away. It was hard to find a nice restaurant nearby but I think Tahoe is more of buy food for the beach, and BBQ at the house you stay so the PDQ store was very close which made it very handy to pick up food, water, and anything else you might need! Anyone that came to visit was very impressed with the house.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was clean and in a great location to get to Homewood to ski or to the Granlibakken to sled. The kitchen and big table was great to put the kids around it. There's a gate at the top of the stairs to help keep a dog (I assume) up there, it wouldn't work for a small child as the child can just fit through the railing, which my child figured out quickly. The furniture was nice and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and kept up nicely. The only down side was that it advertised TV (there are a lot of them) but there is not cable, there is no live TV to watch the news or just turn it on for the kids to watch cartoons. You have to go through the internet, which if there were too many people using the internet the TV would go in and out. Also we could only get the TV in the main family room to work none of the other rooms seemed to work, though we did not call and ask for help as it wasn't something we needed. We had a great time, and appreciate the ease of check in and out.

Owner's Response: Hi Kristy, Thank you so much for staying with us and for a nice review, while we've tried all providers for cable there just isn't service at our house, we appologize for the inconvinince and we'll keep trying, meanwhile there is Netflix on the living room TV and movies for the TV in the family room. Kind Regards, Tahoe Signature Properties!
