About Owner/Manager

We are California natives (San Jose and Fresno) who met and married while at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Additionally, we have lived in Germany and the great state of Texas.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Manager chose Truckee

Our home at Tahoe Donner is the perfect complement to our condo in Maui, Hawaii. Tahoe's close proximity to our San Jose home, and our family's love of the outdoors makes this home the perfect choice. The mountains, skiing, hiking, backpacking, fishing, golf and all the activities nearby keep us busy!

What makes this house unique

Quiet, comfortable location, with all the amenities listed nearby. Close driving distance from San Francisco Bay area, as well as Sacramento and other central valley communities. Great restaurants, pubs, music, shopping and community events in downtown Truckee. Minutes away from world class skiing and hiking too!

Great Retreat for the Whole Family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a great location in the middle of Tahoe Donner. Close to Donner lake, ski resorts and several golf courses. We had a blast taking kayaks out on Donner Lake with the kids. We also enjoyed BBQing on the spacious back deck. The homeowners were very accommodating with answering our questions and providing recommendations. We will definitely be staying here again for our winter ski trip!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This house is situated on a large lot with basically no neighbors behind you. The back patio is large and the furniture is excellent. All of the beds were outstanding. The kitchen is totally equipped and the appliances are relatively new and very clean. All of the bathrooms are in excellent condition, bedding was outstanding, and the owner is very easy to work with. We will be back. Thank you.

Exceptional Home & Top Notch Ownership!

  • 5 of 5

Always a fabulous stay at this gorgeous Tahoe Donner home! My family has stayed here on more than one occasion and love the adventure and tranquility that the area offers. Love the open floor plan, thoughtful decor, large windows, and natural surroundings. After a long day out on the lake or skiing this cabin has all the comforts of home. The homeowners (Robin & Steve) are delights to work with and are very accommodating. We highly recommend this property as well as the excellent service we always receive from the owners.

Nice Home; Rude Owners

  • 1 of 5

The home is spacious and well-appointed. However, we had a some difficulty finalizing payment through PayPal and the communications I received from Robin the owner were rude and unprofessional. I would not recommend renting this home when there are so many other comparable properties with, I'm sure, more gracious owners.

Owner's Response: After Adele's stay it was determined that we had not received full payment (which is really my fault for not noticing sooner). When we brought this to her attention, she told us that the payment had been made to the wrong account. It took another 2 weeks to straighten it out. Perhaps we would not have been so firm (just asking for where they were in the process) if we had a better idea of how resolution was coming along. Email communication can sometimes be misinterpreted.

Hi Robin,

Just wanted to send a quick email about our stay in your beautiful home in Donner Tahoe. We had a fabulous stay and your home was so wonderful. The stay was truly relaxing and the visit with our family all we could have ask for. Perfect snow for sledding and tubing. I took our own things I thought we would need for kitchen and bathrooms. Once we got there I realized that you had everything we could have possibly needed. We do VRBOs often and sometimes places do not have the things that we need. Not your wonderful home! I notice that you also have a place in Maui. That is my favorite place! We all think we prefer flip flops to snow boots! Maybe next time we go to Maui we will see if your place available. Here's to a happy 2016 ! Thanks again! Mona Timmons

Mountain Retreat Great for All Season

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in a great location close to Truckee and all major ski resorts in North Lake Tahoe. A group of us stayed in the cabin for two nights to go skiing, and took full advantage of the well stocked kitchen and spacious layout. It was a real pleasure dealing with the property owner, who was very responsive in answering all of our questions. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to provide any large group with privacy when needed. The house was big enough for our group of 5 that we didn't even spend time in the loft space (which also has a pullout bed) I would recommend staying in this cabin for all seasons to enjoy the Tahoe area.
