About Mark Hansen

Hi. I am Mark. I was born in So. Cal and moved to Nevada in 1968. I went to high school at Lake Tahoe and moved to Carson City in 1979. I worked for the Nevada Dept. of Corrections for 36 years. I was also a reserve deputy sheriff for 8 years. Recently retired, we just had lots of fun completing the house makeover and now want to share this beauty with you.

Mark Hansen purchased this house in 2001

Why Mark Hansen chose Nevada

I really like the comfort and friendliness of this newer neighborhood here in my adopted home town. I bought the house because I really liked the separate casual and formal areas, divided by a cool fireplace.

What makes this house unique

French doors open from the Master bedroom, out to the patio. Ceiling fans in all rooms keep the air moving. I can enjoy the breezes while relaxing in my eclectic and comfortable home. The central location allows me to easily travel to the many fun and diverse places nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best home renting experience we've ever got. We really love this stylish but cozy house, and almost all of my friends want to make it a model-home for their future houses. This house is like a art gallery as each room has its own theme. From the every detail of decoration, we can tell that the owners have pretty high artistic taste and love traveling and life. More importantly, the host, Angela is super nice and helpful! When we locked the bathroom by mistake, she even sent us the key to help open it around 11:30pm, which really warmed our hearts. We highly appreciated that. In a word, this is definitely best-value place you can get when you plan a Tahoe trip, and we're also looking forward to be hosted by Mark again.

Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely home, along with two friends. The house was clean and very comfortable, and the host, Mark, was very accommodating. We were welcomed to the home with a nice package of muffins and fresh flowers. We would definitely stay again. We were attending Hot August Nights in Reno, which was about a 20 minute drive. Carson City was a very good central location. We also visited Virginia City and the small hamlet of Genoa, which were also an easy drive. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much to the Hansens!

Chef's dream, cute house, lots of character

  • 5 of 5

I chose this house because when I am home I love to cook for people I love. This was a perfect house for that. Lots of spices and seasonings, and things to cook with. I left a crock pot as a gift to the owners. They were both extremely hospitable, generous, and kind. I cooked 3 huge dinners and loved that they had everything you could want. My friends and family commented on how awesome the house is. I agree!! Great location. The back yard was perfect for us to enjoy our dinners. Thank you so much Mark and Jaimie for welcoming us into your home.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this property. We stayed last year in September and couldn't wait to come back. It's close to Lake Tahoe, Reno and Virginia City, all places my family loves to visit. The house is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and the backyard is great! We even appreciated that the owners added a small A/C unit to the living room that provided the perfect amount of cool air on hot nights.

Perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

My Wife and I rented the house with other friends for the Carson City Off Road bike race. The house is well located to town. We were able to ride to and from the event. The stores are all right around the corner and we had walked to downtown and the capitol from the home. The Kitchen is well stocked with all the dishware you would need and the pantry is well stocked. It was nice and cool while we were there and the french doors kept a nice breeze through the house. The back patio was nice with gas grill and lots of seating. It was a relief at 70 degrees out when it was 120 back home. The beds in the house are stiff though.

Owner's Response: Hi Matt, We are glad you enjoyed the house during your stay here in Carson City. Thank you for the great review. We try to anticipate our guests' requirements while they are here, so we are happy to know that our house was well-supplied for your visit. Sorry about your bed...each of the three in the house have a different softness level, so we can provide options. We hope that you will stay with us again if your travels bring you back to Carson City. Thanks again for staying at the Mid-Century Playhouse!

Comforts of home while having medical treatments

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a month while our daughter was having medical treatments. Compared to staying in a motel, this accommodation was so much more comfortable. Our daughter's diet was restricted so being able to cook our own food rather than eating out was of great value. The home was well furnished and comfortable. The "comfort of home" made our stay go quickly. We made several trips to South Tahoe and Reno as these were only short drives away. Overall we were very pleased with this beautiful property and location. Our only complaint was that the fee we were required to pay for cleaning each week didn't match the level of service performed.
