Beautiful, cozy, and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The home is very cozy and spacious. My family and I spent Christmas here and it felt like home. The kitchen was spacious enough for me to cook. It was equipped with pretty much everything we needed. Beds were comfy. Felt right at home. I would definitely stay here again. The owner was always available to answer any questions I had through text or call. Out stay was perfect! Thank you Michael

Easy breezy

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Our family was comfortable, great Central location, and the open floor plan was nice for inviting friends over for a dinner. Nothing too fancy but they had everything you could need... especially some pretty nice kitchen equipment.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our visit, and we would definitely consider staying here in the future. The home is basically just as advertised--small, clean, and close to everything. Both beds were very comfortable (didn't use the sofa bed, so no input there). We really enjoyed sitting in the back yard and enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings. The owner was very responsive to our needs.

One thing to be aware of is that there is a fairly strong smoke odor in the house which seems to be due to wood smoke from the fireplace rather than tobacco smoke. It didn't bother us, but it was summer and we were able to open the windows to air it out every day. During the winter, when airing the place out is not an option, this may not be the right choice for someone who is sensitive to smoke.

Owner's Response: Our home DOES NOT SMELL LIKE SMOKE! Our living room smells like any home in Tahoe that has a full hearth, wood burning fireplace. This is one of the features renters are looking for in winter. The chimney and fireplace are cleaned and inspected once a year, and the fireplace is cleaned after every use. I had advised the renter to check the flu and make sure it was closed, as sometimes when doors are open, there is a draft that will bring the smell into the living room. It was wrong of this reviewer to say that our place is "not an option". If you are a person sensitive to the "smell of smoke", then you should stay away from renting any home in Tahoe that has a fireplace, during the autumn and winter, period.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Luckily we got great weather during our visit to South Lake Tahoe. The house was exactly as listed and very clean! It had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The house is stocked with all the essentials which made it so easy and convenient to cook our own meals. The location was perfectly centralized for everything we did- Heavenly, Emerald Bay, Pope Beach, El Dorado Beach, Regan Beach, so many things to do and places to see! We did not have to get in touch with Mr. Taravella during our stay (since we had no issues) but he was easy to communicate with prior to our arrival. He took the time to explain check in procedures and made it all very simple for us. We will definitely return and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a "home away from home" while exploring beautiful South Lake Tahoe!
