Reviewer Comments:

We booked the Shire with 6 adults and 6 children. The kids loved the double over double bunk beds and pull-out trundle, we were able to still fit a blow-up mattress in the room so they could all sleep together. The house has two spacious family rooms that worked out great for separation between the kids and adults. The house proximity to the Tahoe-Donner lodge and ski area is a huge plus and you're only a short drive to downtown Truckee and the other amenities in the community. I would rent this property again in a heartbeat. Also, First Accommodations was very easy to work with and very accommodating when we were snowed in and unable to leave the property.

Reviewer Comments:

Nice house but the kitchen is not well stocked in comparison to other rentals. Need more glassware and cooking utensils. Also, the cleaners did not have the house ready until nearly 5pm on the first night. We sat around waiting for them to wrap up after we had already arrived. Nice to haves: It would be great if house had more games/toys for families and kids. It would also be great if house had a hot tub on back deck. A newer TV with HDMI input is needed downstairs.

The rental house was great! Wonderful location and beautiful views. The only thing lacking was basic amenities. The kitchen was well stock with dishes, but needed more pans, bowls, and cooking utensils when cooking for a large group. Overall it was a great house and would rent again.

The house was a good fit for our group, but the dishwasher did not work, so we spent a lot of time doing dishes, which we were not expecting.

Reviewer Comments:

We were a group of 4 small fmailies (4 couple and 4 kids) and booked this place for the labor day long weekend. It is such a clean and spacious place to stay and enjoy the beautiful Truckee. It has everything it is described in a good shape and the price is reasonable for the quality of the house.
