The house was in a beautiful location and close to a lot of outdoor activities in the Lake Tahoe area. The only drawback was the house did not have air conditioning and the temperature inside was a lot warmer than I had anticipated. The bedroom temperatures downstairs were a lot cooler than the master bedroom upstairs which made it uncomfortable to sleep at night. Other than the warm temperatures we enjoyed the house and I'm sure in cooler months this issue would not be a problem.
I rented this gorgeous home for a seven day holiday family get-together. We had 11 people including adults, children and teens. We are all avid skiers/snowboarders and this seemed the perfect location with several ski areas of differemt levels of terrain nearby. We were not disappointed! The skiing was great, the snow excellent and everyone had a good time.
The house is located a top of a hill in a beautiful neighborhood surrounded by very beautiful homes, just 15 minutes drive from Turckee, the nearest town, where one can find all the supplies needed as well as restaurants, bars and entertainment.
The house has commanding views of the valley and mountains beyond which this time were all covered in snow. I imagine the summer views must be just as beutiful.
The house is beautifully appointed with lovely modern furniture and tasteful decor. The sitting arrangement in the living room allowed everyone to gather at the end of the day to spend time together in front of the huge fireplace. The dinning area has a large table that can easily sit 10 people. We had our meal together and often gathered to play table games in the evenings. The kitchen is well appointed with all the tools, pots and pans, and electric gadgets needed to cook a nice meal for 10! They also have an Italian espresso machine to boot! This one was a hit in the morning...no Starbucks for this crowd!
The bedrooms have comfortable mattresses and exquisite bedding with extra blankest for cold feet. The bathrooms are beautiful and super-clean with hotel-like amenities. With four full bathrooms and one guest/half bathroom near the living room, there was enough for everyone without having to take turns in the morning.
The hot tub was used every evening after ski, in spite of the frigid temperatures outside. It was a great feature of the house. There is a mud-room/laundry room near the garage which was very helpful. The washer/drier is of high quality front-loading lype. Perfect!
The management of the property was very helpful and responsive which made our stay most comfortable.
We had a wonderful time in this magnificent property. I felt as if I were at home from the moment we walked into the house. The care the owners have lavished on this home is felt in every detail. Thank you for sharing this property with my family, you have made this part of an unforgettable family gathering. I hope to be able to rent from you again.
