A Great Place for A Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property from July 2-9, 2016 as a place to gather our entire family together to celebrate our 50th anniversary. We couldn't have been happier with this decision. We had 14 people in our group, both adults and children, and the house could have handled many more. The home is a feast for the eyes, inside and out, both decorated beautifully and situated in a prime location with a 180-degree view of the valley and distant mountains. (I loved watching the sun rise every morning!) The owners have planned their home for families, providing plenty of activities for children, both young and teenagers. Our kids had a ball. I especially loved the large, well-stocked kitchen, with THREE sinks and THREE garbage disposals and TWO dishwashers. Everyone loved gathering at the spa or sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows in the evening. The owners contacted us several times during the week to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. It was, obviously. As I said, we couldn't have been more satisfied with this venue.

No detail left out at this magical home

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. It’s not only gorgeous with fabulous views, it’s stocked with everything you could need and more. The level of care and attention we received from Mark was beyond what I could’ve ever expected. He made sure there was no detail left out and was available for questions or needs at anytime during our stay. We were very impressed and can’t wait to return next year!

Great house suitable for multiple families w kids!

  • 5 of 5

Booked a last minute trip with our 3 kids, my brother's family (4 kids) and my mom. Great house to fit us all! The views are magnificent and looks over the valley over the Truckee airport. Huge hot tub was amazing to sit in and watch the view. Mark went above and beyond (just like the other reviewers mentioned) to accommodate us and make sure everything was in good order. He even brought out the slides, swings and a BBQ for us to cook a Persian BBQ food for our daughter's bday. My brother's family enjoyed it so much that they stayed an extra night. Definitely recommend! Thanks Mark!

Such s great week here!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 18 had the best week here with amazing views, enough room for all of us, plenty of entertainment at night after long days exploring Tahoe -- hot tub, sandbox, yard for playing the games of cornhole and ladder golf we took, pool, ping pong and football. The best was the large living room where we gathered for games and fun. We got lucky with the weather and had warm, sunny days. It did make for a very warm house during the days without A/C, but the nights cooled off and were very comfortable. There aren't window coverings in most rooms, which made for early rising with the payoff of catching the gorgeous sunrises. We loved seeing all the wildlife. Mark was the most responsive, considerate host we've ever dealt with. He was in contact whenever we needed, accommodated our needs and provided items we requested that complemented the home's amenities. We really appreciate all he did for us. We celebrated our grandson's 4th birthday, had an Iron Chef competition, and just relaxed and enjoyed each other's company. We only get together once a year as a whole group and this will be one of our most memorable weeks ever!

Awesome and amazing!!! Can't think of anyway it could have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely a 5 star home...wish we could give it a 10!!! Mark was a fabulous host and went over and above what we expected in order to help make our stay even more perfect! (we would give him a 10 too!!!) From start to finish, Mark made himself available to answer any questions we had as well as guide and help us with making our plans of additional things we wanted to do. Our family had been through a very challenging several months and Mark was so compassionate and understanding of our situation. He communicates so incredibly well, and his response time is amazing! After all our planning together, he met our family at the house and did a great job explaining all the wonderful features this beautiful home has to offer. It is SO family oriented! The house covers all ages perfectly...Mark has the house stocked with indoor and outdoor games, puzzles, blocks and so much to do...not to mention the playground, which our granddaughter loved so much! One of our sons is an executive chef and he (and all of us) was amazed at how well the kitchen was stocked with everything you can imagine to make your stay perfect. We lacked for absolutely is all there! Mark truly loves this property as it was originally his home and that comes across in everything the house has to offer. We felt SO comfortable there, like we were visiting family. It is such a calm and peaceful place to stay...which our family really needed. The view is absolutely breathtaking, our daily visits from some of the local families of deer so cool to watch through the huge windows and balconies, and the night sky is like no other we have ever seen. This property is truly a one of a kind and worth every penny! The Tahoe area is so beautiful and this home was the perfect place to go with the area. Thank you, Mark, for EVERYTHING and for sharing your wonderful home with our family!
