Huge home, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this house - the first time last Summer, the second, this Winter. The property has some terrific attributes:

1. Proximity to Trout Creek Rec Center - fitness and pool and driving range. If you have kids, this is a huge plus.

2. Proximity to Z Market and Lodge Restaurant

3. On golf course but never in danger of being hit by ball - makes the backyard a fun place to hang out and entertain. Also one of the few houses we have ever rented with a full grass yard and deck.

4. This is a quiet family friendly street off Northwoods, which is great for walks and runs

5. Two master suites - one upstairs and one downstairs - great for two families; with nicely renovated bathrooms

6. For entertainment, the whole house is wired with AppleTV and Netflix - and for kids, there are plenty of movies, toys, games and a fun loft with an air hockey table

7. Big, open and beautiful common areas for entertaining

This rental is a tremendous value. You can comfortably fit more than one family here. We will definitely be back!

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

I'm going to start with the pros then dig into why I would not recommend this cabin.

Spacious house, great kitchen, good location - close to ski resorts. Lots of cons, as the house was not as advertised (nowhere close to luxury). We were 3 families (6 adults and 5 kids) - we are home owners that rent out properties and there are basics in a rental that should be provided and/or disclosed ahead of time - and we were very disappointed. The owners suggested we check out early, which we did, and were able to find accommodations for 11 people last minute.

1.The bathrooms had 1 roll of toilet paper. Toilet paper is a basic necessity.

2.Liquid soap dispensers were all empty. We ran out to the store to purchase them.

3.Though we did not use the sauna, there were dirty dishes left in there.

4.The outside garbage was completely full - so we were unable to empty our garbage outside as instructed in the manual upon check-out.

5.Our freezer was completely full - we could not store anything in freezer. Instructed in the manual to empty all food in fridge/freezer - the prior guests (most likely the owners).

6.A huge hole in one of the sheets, upstairs bedroom (this is not luxury)

7.Jacuzzi and driveway covered in snow. My husband had to shovel the snow - for us to be able to use the Jacuzzi and park in driveway. (During winter months, it's suggested to let your guests know that Jacuzzi cannot be used and/or we must shovel in order to get to use the Jacuzzi).

8.There were clothes and towels in the dryer upon our arrival.

9.Breakfast nook table falling apart

10. One of the ladders on the bunk beds, completely broken. Unable to use the top bunk.

No maintenance done on the house. Looks like they are two couples who co-own the house and barely rent it out- closet full of clothes, fridge/freezer full of food. I don't think it's right for my husband to have to shovel snow for an hour upon arrival.

I did email the owners within the first hour of checking in, addressing my concerns. She did say it's been a busy winter and suggested we check out a day early, which we did. She didn't address any of my concerns though.

Upkeep your house, follow the instructions you present in the 10 page manual. Clean out the fridge, freezer, get new bedding, provide soap/toilet paper. You have a spacious place, but upkeeping it is a MUST if you want to regularly rent out the place.

We checked out a day early and the left the house cleaner than it was checking in.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed by this review. We believe it’s unfair, unwarranted and in many parts inaccurate. This was a bad fit from the beginning, and within an hour of their early check in, it was clear that we could not meet their unreasonable expectations. In order to mitigate the situation, we let them check out early, gave them credit for their 2nd night stay, and refunded their full deposit. They still chose to write this inaccurate and mean spirited review. It's unfortunate that owners can’t also provide feedback on renters so that future homeowners will be warned when renting to certain parties & not experience renters with ulterior motives actively trying to find reasons to get a discount on their stay. Addressing the items noted in the review, please note the following: - The concerning communication started even before arrival with these renters raising issues about conditions in the region well out of our control due to weather. - The reason the towels were out is because the renters arrived before check-in. We still had cleaners in the house getting the property ready. To have them complain about an issue resulting from them violating the rental agreement speaks volumes. - The house is well equipped with supplies. Regardless, we had our house cleaners drop off additional supplies when the renter expressed concerns. - We have a contract with Elements snow removal company. They service homes several times a day during storms. To say they had to shovel the driveway is false. As for snow that may have fallen on the jacuzzi, that can be an issue during snow storms especially during a stormy winter like this one. That said, the jacuzzi is cleared fairly often. So the pile up is never beyond a few minutes of clearing. - One room has two bunk beds. One ladder was recently coming loose. We removed it and have since replaced it. Regardless there is still another ladder in the room. Same with the toilet paper holder. It was loose from the dry wall and has been replaced. Finally, the renter stated they “left the house cleaner than it was checking in” is telling about the psychology of this renter. How many renters would pay for cleaning services as part of booking, be dissatisfied and take the time to clean the house further upon early departure? We take pride in the house, treat it with care and enjoy sharing it with other families. We have historically have had little to no concerns with renters. It’s unfortunate this experience occurred.

Beautiful setting, outstanding house

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect fit for our large group of 10 people (including 8 adults, 1 teenager & 1 toddler). Everyone had an appropriate sleeping option (within a room) and the bathroom set-up left no one waiting. But this house was more than a nice fit as we all felt comfortable within the spacious living/dining spaces. We all enjoyed the kitchen, the outdoor grill, the hot-tub, the deck (+ seating and hammock!), the sauna, game tables (especially air hockey and table tennis) and spacious showers/bathrooms. The house is stocked with ample towels and sheets and even has a washer/dryer if needed. We loved going to the lake and swimming pools and rode and ran on many of the trails in Donner. The location was quiet and the street was peaceful. The owner was easy to communicate with and always answered promptly. The property was all that was advertised and more! We definitely hope to return to this property. It had EVERYTHING!

Tremendous Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible! We all had a great time! The house was left clean for us! The kids (ages 5-11) all had a great time with the air hockey and hot tub. The dining table was great! Breakfast nook became the kids table and the dining table with its comfy chairs for the adults.

We would definitely stay at this lovely home again! The owners were easy to work with and they did a wonderful job with the renovations and speaking on behalf of all three families that stayed there, we all would look forward to returning!

Very Nice, Great Location, Perfect For 2 Families

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here with our families (5 kids) and our father for a ski week. The house has a great set up with 2 masterbedrooms that are both very nice. We loved stayed in the downstairs master which had a bonus futon and huge soaking tub we used every day. The kids loved having their own bunk room. The train table would be a huge bonus for littler kids. The only funny layout issue was that the kids room connected to the other guest room (where my dad stayed) rather than one of the masters, but we just kept the doors closed and it worked fine. We all loved the air hockey table upstairs (grownups included!) there was a pool table folded up in the downstairs closet that looked fun but we never got it out. There is also a sauna upstairs we never used, but looked very nice. The kitchen was well stocked and we used it every day. Big enough for both sets of parents to be preparing food at the same time without bumping in to each other. The back deck is very nice, with great woods views, and there is a hot tub with amazing views of the stars (we saw shooting stars!). We also appreciated the telescope and used it a few times. The property backs right up to the golf course and a walking path. Great for walks or snow shoeing. We walked to the golf clubhouse in 10-15 minutes and to the little store and rec center in about 20. My family stays in Tahoe Donner 2-3 times every year and this was one of our favorite properties ever for the combination of high end feel, large space, great layout for families, extras like hot tubs, saunas and air hockey, and location. The only negative I could say is that because it has wood floors and the main downstairs area opens to the upstairs play area, noise echoes. With kids shouting during airhockey games and groups downstairs talking we could get a bit of a racket going. Overall, though, a truly amazing place, especially for 2 families. We definitely want to go back!!

Gorgeous Family Reunion House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful house last winter with our children and grandchildren. The pictures do not do it justice. There was plenty of room for all of us with quality amenities and we were more than comfortable. We are planning to return this summer and can not wait to experience Tahoe in the summer.
