A great place to stay

September 13, 2012

A great place to stay while in Lake Tahoe. The rental property was central located and definitely accommodated our group of 8 adults. It was large enough to have everyone together accept at meal time. The dining room table could accomodate more than 6 people however there were only 5 chairs. There are plenty of bar stools if you don't mind not all sitting at the same table. The house is definitely equipped with enough kitchen ammenities anyone would ever need. Overall I would rate the house 4 out of 5 stars the only issue I had was that I felt that the house could have ued a quick cleaning the day before we arrived as I am not sure when the last time the house was rented. There were a few cobwebs, back 3 sets of stairs were covered in pine needles and should have been swept off and lastly the bbq utensils were dirty and still out by the bbq from the last renters. It didn't take 8 of us long to tidy things up especially with the cleaning supplies provided by the owner and add a pretty bouquet of flowers to add that special touch. We had a great vacation and would definiely stay here again.

It's all in the details

October 11, 2011

We spent a long weekend at this house, and overall it was fine. It was clean and well maintained, however some of the details in the description were deceiving. There are only 3 bedrooms, not 4. Two of the beds are hide-a-beds in sofas, and I'm not sure how 12 people could sleep there, we easily filled the house with 8. We didn't use the golf cart (brakes didn't work), and it is a short but steep walk to the beach. Overall, this house met our needs, and the private beach is a wonderful place to enjoy the sunset.

Amazing home, Exquisite location

January 26, 2011

I came into this rental with very high expectations, based on the pictures, maps, and conversation with the owner. All of my expectations were exceeded! The home is well appointed, beautifully crafted, and situated in a quiet but extremely convenient area. The location directly across from Lake Tahoe offers majestic views and easy access to an intimate park. Proximity to the area's ski resorts, restaurants, shopping, casinos, and everything else is unbeatable. When looking for a rental in South Lake Tahoe, I highly recommend that you look no further!

Stunning property
Absolutely beautiful property. The photos do not do it justice. It has the perfect layout for a vacation getaway. A great living and dining room for spending time in style while viewing the lake. Extremely clean and well maintained. Very close to Heavenly ski resort and Stateline casinos. The large garage was a real bonus as we got feet of snow during our stay. A first class place!

First class property
Our two families fit comfortably into this very nice home. The home is in a perfect location, and the views are as advertised. The home is tastefully decorated, yet very comfortable. Everything that you need is in the home, and it is all very good quality. Have gone to Tahoe are 7 times, and this was the best stay for us by far.

This home is every bit as beautiful as the description indicates. It is well maintained, well equipped, and has a great location. We felt as if we were at home here. And the details within the house are lovely. In addition, the owner provided great details of what to expect prior to arrive, at arrival, and upon departure. Very good service. And finally, you can't beat the location, it is across from a park that is attached to a beach, and is close to Heavenly, restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy, and Starbucks:) Good choiceI highly recommend.
- Steve and Teri, Columbus, OH

"The pictures on the site are great, but they can't compare to the real beauty of being there in this property!

We came in right after Christmas with our parents and college and high school kids. The house was ready and waiting for us. Lake Tahoe had lots of snow before our arrival. So, it was picture perfect!

The house is located across from the park on the lake and has amazing views from the big picture windows from most rooms. It is centrally located with a short drive to the grocery store, ski resorts, shopping, restaurants, etc.

We skied at Sierra, Homewood, and Heavenly and did the snowmobile tour from Zephyr Cove. There is so much to do close by, we had a hard time choosing what we wanted to do everyday.

This house is beautifully built and well appointed. It has an awesome kitchen with top of the line appliances. We were able to cook great dinners, play games and just spend time together in this great spot. The master bath has a great shower or a jetted tub for soothing your aches after a day on the mountain!

If you are looking for an amazing property to spend some down time with family or friends, I highly recommend this property. It is not furnished and equipped like a typical rental, more like you are a guest in a beautiful private home.

The owners of this property are great to deal with, very organized and efficient. There were great instructions in the property to answer any questions you might have in your stay.

If your planning a trip to the South Lake Tahoe area, I highly recommend this property. We will definitely be back!
