About Agnes

Hi! My name is Agnes and I like snowboarding, gardening, cooking and traveling. Currently I am studying at the Academy of Art University where I am perusing a degree in Illustration. When you rent my place in Tahoe, you may just find some of my paintings and drawings I am currently working on!

Agnes purchased this house in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Agnes was a great host instantly responded to any communication and was extremely helpful in every way. The house is beautiful with all the amenities we needed. I would definitely love to rent from Agnes again next time I am in the area.

Amazing view and generous amount of space!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during a massive snow storm so we didn't see the view until the morning after our second night. And it was breathtaking and from just about every room in the house.

The distance to Boulder Lodge was, in fact, just two minutes and so we started our day there everyday, and happily! This lodge is not as crazy busy as some of the others and felt more "local". My two daughters joined Heavenly's ski school starting from here each day which was perfect.

Each day we enjoyed the jacuzzi with its breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe that are seared in my mind forever. Each night we cooked dinner in the kitchen, sat by the fire and watched any movie we wanted using the Apple TV. The master bedroom was enormous and overlooking Lake Tahoe. Heater worked fabulously and so we were very cozy the whole time.

Can't wait to rent again from Agnes who kept in touch and took great care of us !!

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, less then 5 minutes drive to Boulder Chair. Amazing views and wonderful hosts. The hot tub was awesome - we used it every night after skiing. The house has lots of space and the beds were very comfortable, nice sheets.

Agnes was extremely communicative and helpful from the beginning of messaging until the end of our stay. We will go back there for sure. I can recommend this house joyfully.

Dated home in need of maintenance

  • 2 of 5

Extremely disappointing. Don’t rent if you are looking for a nice, clean, enjoyable family trip. If you want a run-down place to crash after a long day of skiing and don’t care that it is messed up and dirty, consider it against its not insignificant price.

The positives: the location was great. The views are amazing. The master bedroom is spacious. Beds mostly comfortable.

The not good:

House is roughly 35 years old and is poorly maintained. The pictures do not reveal its many flaws and issues. There has not only been a failure to maintain or update the house over time, but significant portions of it are in disrepair. Examples:

-The stair railings are about to break. Rickety.

-The dishes are chipped in addition to being dirty. Had to wash everything before considering using.

-A door on the middle level is bashed in.

-Holes in the walls everywhere. Some like drywall anchor holes without the screw or painting. Some just weird holes, gaps in drywall and/or paint.

-Paint is messed up everywhere.

-Electronics systems were a mess. Universal remote controls were supposed to operate the two TVs seamlessly. One was battery dead, and then the system had been improperly wired so HDMI cords were looping from and to the receiver. Universal remotes never worked quite right.

-Glass shower door in upstairs non-master bathroom falling out of its track.

-“Smart” thermostats were wildly off. House was cold when we arrived.

-Lightbulbs burned out throughout the house. Some light fixtures lack bulbs.

-Floor feels unstable and sags upstairs.

Arriving at the house after a long trip was tough. The instructions on Homeaway by the owner are a mess. The code for entry through the front door was wrong. Owner ignored a call but responded quickly to a text. She apparently is not local. She told me I was at the wrong unit, incorrectly. Eventually got in but it was a pain. Homeaway details have several wrong addresses.

Cleaning fee is a joke based on what you get. House wasn't clean. Dusty. You get clean sheets and towels but not clean.

House feels nowhere near 3,000 square feet. Wouldn't fit 12 comfortably. Not much common space.

Stairs. Lots of stairs, at elevation. Schlepping bags up is a pain ~five stories at ~8,000 feet elevation kills. Bring gates if you have little kids or else you risk injury.

Hot tub looked dubious and we didn't use it. Water level was low and water murky.

Renter beware.

Owner's Response: Kevin - how strange to write such a long list of complaints... yet you NEVER called or emailed me about any of the 'problems'... Floor feels unstable..? The railings are about to fall off? Dirty dishes... and towels? I wonder why you didn't just call... You stayed at the house for a week, didn't you? I would think that a natural reaction would be to call and demand your money back. Or demand the tub to be serviced. Why wait a month...? Hmmm.... Strange. I could have sent a contractor to make sure the house doesn't fall of the cliff... It's a miracle you survived for a week in that hell... Was the lake blue enough for you? We have been hosting re-peat guests for years and based on their reviews and interactions I think they were pretty happy. Yes, we have stairs - the house is in the mountains and to see the spectacular lake views you have to be pretty high up. I guess you didn't know this but the mountains come generally with high elevations.... I'm sorry if a plate was chipped - that sometimes happens to glass. It was a little cold when you arrived? You're right - no one should have to wait for a long 5 minutes for the hot air to fill the house. And yes, maybe we didn't choose wall colors based on what's the newest trend in Milan. Sorry if that offended your artistic sensibilities. I could go line by line and address your complaints but I think the insanity of the claims just speaks for itself. I'm just glad I am not your travel companion.

Awesome view! Everything was perfect! Definitely staying again. Very close to the boulder lift.

Perfect for family or friends of 12 people. Gets little cozy, but it's perfect still :)

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Great stay for all nine of us with plenty of space. We never felt crowded. Views were amazing and I'm convinced we had a prime location in Lake Tahoe. Would definitely choose this house again!

Great house.

All our needs were met. We love this place. This is our second stay in this wonderful home.. The hot tub was amazing. Watching movies on the huge tv was awesome. The view is spectacular. I hope to stay there again sometime.

Thank you.
