Reviewer Comments:

Thank you for an awesome week on Gold Dust Trail. We have 2 boys and a big dog, and everyone felt right at home in this comfortable spot.  Location: Very convenient location in a quiet neighborhood. Even with the heavy snow, we were just 10 or 15 minutes from tubing, skiing, snowmobiling, dining, movies, and snowshoeing in the woods. It was nice and quiet at night for sleeping.  Condition: The house was clean, and all the appliances worked great -- coffee maker, fridge, stove, oven, microwave, toaster. Wifi and Netflix. Also the washer and dryer were really convenient and fast. Heating worked great and kept us cozy. Hot tub was a nice addition too. A sign said the ice maker didn’t work, no prob. We did not try the wood stove.  Amenities: Bring all your own groceries, including condiments and dry goods. The kitchen had salt, pepper, one day’s worth of ground coffee, and sugar; plenty of filters, some TP and paper towels; laundry soap, dishwasher detergent, and dish soap. The bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion. Management: The property managers were VERY responsive and helpful. Someone came every day that there was new snow, and cleared the driveway with a snow blower. Roominess: Our family spends a lot of time together, hanging out and watching movies. The house has seating and beds for 8, but with our 4 plus the dog we were loving it, plenty of personal space to spread out and relax. Activities: It’s South Lake Tahoe! So many fun things. We did a bunch of fun things, but also spent a lot of time together at the house, playing in the snow or inside. Games are provided. There is also a binder with local activities.  Bottom line: If we come back to SLT, we would stay here again. Thanks! P.S. It was a little confusing what to do with the trash — the cans in the garage were already full when we got there, so we just left our trash bags next to the cans. A sign down in the g

Reviewer Comments:

Great experience overall. The house was actually cuter than the pictures showed online. I'd suggest retaking the photos with the window curtains drawn. Positives: -Everything was so much nicer than expected -Despite reviews, the beds were very comfortable. Maybe the owners added mattress pads? regardless all guests slept well - The hot tub was amazing. Especially at night with the stars (suggest turning off all the lights inside). was great even in the snow! - The kitchen and bar area are adorable! Very charming brick :) - The backyard is amazing!! Opens up to the forest and has a gate enclosed for dogs to run free Draw backs: - The woman who answered the phone/emails for the lodging company was not friendly at all and really frustrated us several times. If she could have been more patient and kinder it would have made a big difference - When we first walked into the home, it smelled like a smoking room. Not sure if the visitors before us smoked inside, or the fireplace caused the smell, but it was pretty strong and something you aren't used to this day and age - The second shower (not the one in the master bedroom) still did not have a shower head (surprising because in the reviews the management company said that this was fixed)

Owner's Response: Owner Response: We are pleased to hear your overall experience at our Golddust home was a good one. Thank you for your thorough review. We look forward to hearing the positive and negatives from our guests. Our goal is to have your stay an enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing one. We love our furry friends and yes, the yard is just perfect for them. We are very upset about the smoking issue. Neither us nor the management company allow smoking inside. It is written in the rental agreement. Our sincere apologies for this!! We are checking into the issue with the shower head and will make sure it is taken care of. There is one there, it's just small. We will replace it with a larger one. Again, we do appreciate your input and hopefully you can come back another time soon.

Very nice house, perfect temperature control, nice Jacuzzi, very clean bedrooms and baths, a big lot for snow play. Assume you don't need super duper new dish washer :)

Thank you for the Christmas tree and decorations. First thing every morning my two year old grandson asked for the lights to be turned on. We appreciated the extra touch and effort. The management company was very accommodating and helpful. I loved the hiking out the back gate. We will hopefully be back.
