Extremely disappointed

  • 1 out of 5
We had several issues with this rental property during our stay:
The refrigerator did not work properly. The property manager had to call out a repair company to fix it.
The shower curtain in one of the bathrooms was so moldy that no one would use that shower. The property manager had to replace the curtain.
Three of the bathroom sinks did not drain properly. The property manager had to clean them out.
The glass shower down in one of the master bedroom showers was falling off.
The jets in one of the master bedroom bathtubs were moldy and no one would use it.
We were very uncomfortable and uneasy with the cameras that were installed in various locations around the property, especially the one pointed directly at the hot tub.
Housekeeping generally was not very good. For example, there was food splattered on one of the walls in the kitchen.
The latch that unlocked the French door to the back porch was broken.
We were disappointed with the very limited lake view.
The bedding was tattered and some had tears and holes.
Turning the TV, speakers and DVD combo on and off was very confusing. Better directions need to be posted at the equipment.
We have attempted to contact the owner on several occasions to discuss why our damage deposit has not been returned. He has not answered our voicemail or e-mails.

Very disappointed

  • 2 out of 5
My husbands 30th birthday was this weekend. We picked this house because the location, rooms, and of course the arcade.
Pros.
-The arcade was awesome. Couple of game that we not working, but no big deal at all.
-The house could fit all our friend and was kid friendly.
- close enough the the casinos
Cons- some worse then others.
-the code he gave us to use to get in the house only worked sometimes, we had someone home at all times we had to take turns letting people in. Not the worse thing, just a hassle.
- they have cameras &audio in the living areas on the house. Homeowner dienes this, says they are just outside. My guest saw the lab top with the view on the living area, ( they came early and a man was still there doing stuff on the house. But let them in) the property manager Melody did in fact confirm there is cameras and audio. Homeowner had Melody stop by the house because she said " he was watching the cameras and you left the hot tub cover off too long" I asked her why he's watching the cameras, and she said " he likes to check in from time to time."
Homeowner told me the audio and visual is just outside, but completely played dumb about know how it worked and said the audio only picks up when it's loud noise, but doesn't know what constitutes loud. I want to believe this, just need to warn others, he said it's disclosed on here, it is not!
-the beds are sooooo uncomfortable! Both master beds are the worst. West master is hard as a rock, and the other one my guest said it was worse the a air mattress.
-the master that is by the street the door knob comes off. can't use it at all, my guest couldn't close the door. Also the bathroom shower door looked like it was going to fall off, so they couldn't use it. ( my guest didn't tell me this until we were leaving because of all the other problems and I was already upset.)
-the house was kinda dirty. Film on dishes, dirt in every corner, rugs stained. Walked around and our socks were so dirty. Dropped my phone last night behind the bed, pulled it out and I found candy wrappers and two different socks, and soo many dust bunnies.
-Someone left old spaghetti in the fridge that I had to clean.
-all screens are broken so couldn't sleep with windows open, bug would get in.
-homeowner said the 1st night he got a noise compliant from the next door neighbor, but he said he didn't the next day, said it was the audio altering him. We were inside playing cards.
Just heads up.

Owner's Response: Entry Codes - Codes only work for the duration of your stay. Check in time is 3pm, check out is 11am. If you come early your entry code will not work. If you stay past check out time, entry codes will not work.

Security Cameras - The presents of security cameras are disclosed on the rental agreement. There are security cameras on the outside of the house only, two of which have audio alert capabilities. If noise levels go above a preset decibel level, email notifications go out to the manager. We have placed a short cut on the living room computer desktop so that you can see exactly what the cameras see (front door, back doors, lake). There are no cameras in the house.

Mattresses - West Master Bedroom has Temperpedic mattress, East Master Bedroom has a Select Comport mattress. We also have bedrooms that have traditional premium mattress. All of these mattresses are top of the line mattresses.

Maintenance – On occasion, screws can become loose. If a shower door handle or a door knob screw comes loose, please notify us and we would be happy to dispatch a handyman to correct any issues in short order.

Noise - Please be considerate of the neighbors. If you are in the hot tub at 12:30am please keep your voices down. The house is sitting on about a half an acre so it can be give hot tub participants the false sense that they are secluded and that nobody can hear them; however, sound carries to the neighbors below.

Awesome times in an awesome place

  • 5 out of 5
This place is great. The owner is very helpful, returned emails, and made sure we were taken care of leading up to our stay. The house was able to accommodate everyone easily and the views of the snow-covered trees from the living room are breathtaking. The dual stove/ovens are a nice addition and the arcade room was as cool as you'd expect. A single switch turns them all on like you're at Flynn's arcade. If you go in the winter be sure you have some 4x4's in your group as half our group couldn't make it up the hill to the cabin even with chains.

Home Away From Home

Our stay at this home exceeded all expectations. Great surroundings with the ability to house our group of 10 people very comfortably. The owner was very accommodating and friendly. We are looking forward to our next stay here.

So Awesome! The Lake House is our family favorite!

  • 5 out of 5
We just got back from our THIRD trip to the Bulan's Lake House - and this might have been our best trip ever. This is a wonderful property for all ages. The video games continue to be a favorite - everyone seems to end up down stairs at all times of the day and night, laughing and giving each other a hard time over defeated high scores. The house is very close (walking distance) to the Sierra Rim Trail, and the hiking is awesome - with the sort of views you just can't believe until you see them - Christmas Card worthy pictures! The neighborhood is quiet as you are way up above the lake, yet close enough that you can drive down to whatever interests you - (dinner, shows, casinos, kayaiking, minigolf, real golf, beaches). An amazing house to make amazing memories! Enjoy! Ok here are a couple of side notes - Don't forget to try out the steam showers - there are two! The water from the tap tastes great - I know that sound silly, but instead of lugging a lot of purchased water bottle up this time we brought our refillable water bottles for hiking, etc. Another nice thing is the house has a keyless security system so no scheduling a key pick up and drop off with a property manager - so if you decide to stop on the way up for a long lunch you can. Oh, and since I forgot to mention it above - the owners are easy to work with and easy to get a hold of.
