About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful home... enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and two young godchildren truly enjoyed our stay at The Ponderosa. I would have given it a five star rating had it not been for the difficulties we had gaining entry to the home (by staff own admission we had be given wrong access code); and for the fact that snow had not been cleared from the stairs and driveway entry( we had to shovel snow to get our car in the garage). From the outside, it looked as if we were not expected. Once inside, all was fine, and the comfort of the home made it easy to disengage from out initial difficulties. The home is spacious and beautifully appointed. Amenities abound from the beautiful electric fireplace which is warm and inviting, to the large flat screen HD TV, to the fully stocked stainless steel kitchen. The house is very clean and well maintained. All three bedrooms have en suite baths and were well stocked with comfortable bedding, towels , body products, even hairdryers and shower caps! The upper floor master bedroom is a retreat unto itself. SPOILER ALERT: You won't believe the master bathroom- truly jaw-dropping. The home is filled with rustic charm and makes for a superb mountain getaway. It is a great place for kids with a loft/sleeping area which for older kids is quite suitable for games and play. Overall I feel the home is a great offering; and well worth the price. We loved it. Our kids loved it. I would definitely stay again.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property multiple times and it is always a pleasure. The home is well kept and comfortable. Vacasa makes the process simple and stress free.

I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone considering staying in the Tahoe Donner / Truckee area.

This was a great house. As others have said, the hill out back is really fun for sledding. The kitchen is well designed and adequately stocked with dishes and cookware. The living room is wide open and comfortable. Tahoe Donner downhill and cross country skiing is super close. Only one word of warning: the house is on a hilly street that isn't plowed all that quickly or frequently after a snowstorm.

Nice house; minor maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

The house is nice, as pictured. The floor plan is spacious, and the fireplace in the living room gives plenty of heat for a warm, cozy feeling.

For the price we paid, I expected everything to be functioning properly, which it wasn't. When I called the local customer service numbers to fix the issues, they didn't respond until the next day. While not normally a big deal, the smoke alarm in the master bedroom was running out of batteries and beeping every few minutes. I would normally just disable it myself, but it was positioned 20+ feet high on the ceiling, and there was no ladder to be found. I called 4-5 times to have someone come and fix it, but no one called back until the following day. Thus, we had to try and sleep through the constant beeping all night long. Because we weren't granted an early check-in, I assume that the cleaning staff were there earlier in the day to clean the property. How/why they didn't fix this during that time is beyond me, as it was going off from the moment we arrived, likely just a few hours after they left.

The kitchen is beautiful, open and spacious. However, the refrigerator water and ice dispenser didn't work. The top rack of the dishwasher was also broken, making it dangerous to load any dishes into it. These aren't huge issues and not ones that ruined or stay (though the smoke alarm certainly was annoying), but something that should've been proactively and more promptly addressed when under management from a professional company.
