                                          Perfect for us - 2 adults and 2 little furry friends

                                          Rena C.

                                          Exactly what we were looking for! Cozy living room with a fireplace, a fenced in backyard and an updated kitchen and bath.

                                          Third year here!

                                          Gary T.

                                          This is the third winter we have stayed in this cabin for our annual ski trip in the Tahoe area, this time for 17 days. It has worked so well for us we did not consider any place else, and again it was great. That pretty much says it all. I'm repeating my previous reviews, but the cabin has been almost completely remodeled inside, including a modern kitchen and bathroom, and is very comfortable. The gas fireplace is great for moderating the room temperature. The kitchen has all the amenities for cooking so you can easily prepare meals. Though it does not have a dishwasher, the tradeoff is it has a combination washer/dryer which is great for doing some light loads.

                                          The location is perfect for us. It is a quick 10 minute drive to the California Lodge and Aerial Tram at Heavenly. Northstar and Kirkwood Mountain are about an hour drive away. The neighborhood is away from all of the hustle-and bustle of the casinos and such, but they are only about a 15 minute drive. The cabin is closer to some of the restaurants/bars that cater to locals a bit more - Brothers was our latest find. You will need a car to get around.

                                          And I can't say enough about Kevin, the owner. We have stayed at many VRBO accommodations over the years, and Kevin is hands-down the most responsive and accommodating.

                                          Perfect, best value in Tahoe!

                                          alexander m.

                                          My wife and I stayed here with our 2 dogs in January and had a great time. Kevin, the owner, was very responsive and went out of his way to allow our dogs to stay and it was very dog-friendly (The large fenced-in yard was exactly what we were hoping for). Kevin provided excellent instructions and we had no problem using anything in the cabin. The kitchen was modern and updated. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The size was perfect for us and the price cannot be beaten. If you have dogs and want privacy, but want to be close to the action, this is the place to be!

                                          not really comfy or updated...

                                          Curtis L.Rocklin, CA

                                          We can't truly recommend this rental with a straight face. "Updated" means some repairs have been made and other items are barely workable. Most alarming is the inadequate window coverings... sheers on the living room window do not provide adequate coverings, especially at night if you have the indoor lights on. The owner is persnickety about who they rent to and even asked us to take the trash can to the street on trash day stating "we don't have anyone else to do it", but doesn't maintain the property well. They have lots of rules for renters, but leave the floors and cookware dirty for renters' arrival. The beds are uncomfortable, and the master bed frame squeaks every time you make the slightest toss or turn. The microwave tips over when the door is opened. The bed linens smell like grandma's attic so we had to wash all the bedding to get a somewhat better smelling bed, the washer/dryer combo takes 4 1/2 hours to run a "quick" cycle, and the owner only left us 3 bath towels to use. Overall, there price was low but you definitely get what you pay for.

                                          Owner's Response:

                                          I wish these guests would have let us know they were unhappy with the bedding or hospitality. We take pride in our home and VRBO hosting. The window coverings, mattress and sheets are new, high quality and well-received by other guests. The bed frame is being replaced with a brand new one upon my next visit to the home (March 2018). Also, I am not sure they read the House Rules and Rental Agreement, but it clearly states ‘tenants shall dispose of all waste material in a lawful manner’. I am sorry that the guests did not alert me to their cleaning concerns immediately so that I could respond as I had been assured the space was completely cleaned. We appreciate and respect our guest’s privacy and comfort, and strive to give them the best experience at a reasonable price point.

                                          Great Value for a Small Family

                                          Matthew H.

                                          Came back for our 2nd year in a row. The location's great. The price is right. It works really well for our family of 4. Nice to come back to familiar surroundings! Cheers!

                                          Perfect for 2 couples !

                                          Tony V.

                                          I would definitely come back here again if it's just the two of us again. The size is perfect!
