About Patrick & Lynda Hart
My husband and I are fifty something and are trying to add some more fun to our lives. When I come up from the Bay Area and we are driving over Donner Pass, I can almost feel all my cares floating away and Tahoe is where we relax. It is a magical place any time of the year.
Patrick & Lynda Hart purchased this House in 2004
Why Patrick & Lynda Hart chose Homewood
Our family has traveled to Lake Tahoe every winter since the kids could walk. We rented lots of houses which we shared with another family most of the time. This is where our kids became skiers and snowboarders. It was only when we purchased our house on the West Shore that we understood the charms of Tahoe in summer. We decided that our Tahoe home would be comfortable for two families to enjoy as we had.
What makes this House unique
We love to sit on the deck in the evenings and listen to the wind rustling in the pine trees. On cool nights we light the firepit and don't go in until after dark. Sometime we see wildlife out for an evening stroll. We also greet our neighbors doing the same.

At least it's not Afghanistan Part 2 - Birthday celebration ruined
We arrived on Thursday evening to a house that smelled horrible. My son and his wife and young 2 year old daughter stayed outside while we opened all the windows. One window did not have a screen in it. One sliding door did not have a screen in it. Some screens were duct taped to the frames and some had scotch tape to patch holes in the screens. The toilets were not cleaned and their was hair and dirt in the showers. The cooktop was greasy and full of food particles. We contacted the manager and he told us a cleaning crew would be there the next day by noon. The refrigerator was full of food and the pantry full of food. I threw out enough of the food to empty our bags of groceries. I called our other son who was arriving soon to bring some candles to help with the smell. When taking the bags of garbage to the garage, we found the smell. In the garage were bags of garbage that had sat for some time and the smell was awful. We ate out that night as no one wanted to cook in that kitchen. We had to run the dishwasher as it was full of dirty dishes. That is when I realized I would have to go to the store to get more dishwashing pods. No one took a shower. We had to close up the house as it was chilly. The next day we waited until noon with no crew. My daughter stayed behind and told us one young woman arrived about 2:00 pm and stayed one hour. She cleaned 2 toilets, missed the cooktop and bathroom upstairs. I texted the manager and said we were not satisfied with cleaning. We had to make our own beds when we arrived as all the towels and sheets were in the dryer. Then we realized there was no soap in any of the bathrooms for showers so we were off to the store again. Saturday I was ready to grill our dinner. Before we had arrived I had heard from the owner that they had a gas grill we could use so I was pleased to design a dinner around the the grill. Nope, the grill was broken and unusable. Off to the store again to get charcoal. We left our rental one day early because it was just too unpleasant. It was my husband's 70th birthday. Our 3 kids flew in from around the country. Do not rent from this place. After a long email to the owner. I still have not heard back. I am asking for 1 day of reimbursement and supply reimbursement.
Great place, perfect for our weekend trip!
We had a great time staying at Base Camp! The property was well maintained and worked perfectly for our trip. There was even a little black bear in the yard one afternoon!
“At least I’m not in Afghanistan!”
The title refers to the comment my husband made regarding our Tahoe accommodations. I looked forward to this trip for months...we ended up in a disgusting, over-rated home. I have no idea how this house has 4.5 stars.
1. Carpets are stained
2. Towels and linen are stained
3. Mold in the bathrooms, especially master bath downstairs
4. Walls are dirty and damaged
5. Ceilings are patched and moldy in areas
6. Refrigerator is dirty and filled with decaying food and old condiments
7. neighbor’s yard looks like a junk yard
8. neighbor cursed at my mother and generally seems mentally unstable...I did not feel safe having my family in this home.
9. There are not 2 master suites...there is not even one master suite.
10. “Jacuzzi” is a bathtub spa filled with mold
11. The pictures and description of this home do not match reality.
12. “Walking distance to the beach” implies easy access to me...don’t be fooled by this description.
I refused to stay in this house, when I told the property manager I wanted a refund he said “the line is breaking up, I can’t hear you.”
On the bright side the home was a step up from being deployed to a third world country.
If you’re interested in getting ripped off you should definitely stay here.
We did not receive any complaints until two days after check in, I attempted to address tenants concerns by offering to send our cleaning crew back to the house within the hour. We stand by our property description, recently taken pictures, location near one of the most popular beaches in Tahoe, and our helpful neighbor of 15 years, and think our 44 positive reviews, including others from Summer 2019, speak for themselves.
Close to Sugar Pine St Park
Great place to stay with family. Especially if you need multiple baths, and that is family and pet friendly. Came up for our daughter’s wedding and it was close to everything we needed to do for the weekend. Definitely would go back
We had a great time in this house - the kitchen is well-appointed, the furnishings are very comfortable, and the location is great. It was perfect for a girl's weekend!
