"We arrived at the house on a very sunny day in April and enjoyed sitting outside in the beautiful backyard overlooking the boat dock. Our dog loved the comfortable grass and watching the ducks in the water.
The house was very comfortable and we loved cooking in the large kitchen and eating dinner at the table overlooking the water. Loved the smart tv in the living room and the gas fireplace was a godsend on one of the days that it was raining all day and we came home wet, cold and tired from a long hike.
That was the other thing we liked was the proximity to Heavenly ski resort and all the hiking trails out by Emerald Bay.
We have just a few things we didn't like:
1. All the beds were extremely hard and uncomfortable - my daughter actually slept on the couch in a sleeping bag because all 5 beds downstairs were way too hard for her. The master bedroom bed was also very hard and sloped in the middle - my husband and I woke up every night falling into each other in the middle.
2. I could've sworn I saw a picture of a hot tub in the backyard but maybe it was just all the other houses I looked at that got me confused. No matter, we thought, because they have a clubhouse we can pay to go to. Well, apparently, the pool and hot tub, we were told by the athletic club staff, were broken! When I called the owner to ask if she knew when they would re-open, she got very rude and defensive saying that those were just an extra and she had nothing to do with them and didn't know. I said that was one of the main reasons why we chose this house - again more rudeness and then she said oh yes, she remembered something that the pool/hot tub area was being renovated!! If we would have known that, we would have never booked any house in the Tahoe Keys area.
So, all in all, I would recommend this house as it was very comfortable to be in, however, stay away from calling the owner - not a nice person!"
