John and Lana were very welcoming upon arrival! We arrived a bit later than expected, and were still warmly welcomed in. They were very helpful in providing us with several suggestions of where to visit around the area, in which we were happily satisfied after taking their advice. We recommend their listing to anyone that wants a super cozy place to stay!
I love the room everything we expected. John and Lana were very friendly and helpful giving suggestions on where to ski and where to eat.
The location was beautiful and the house was well appointed with everything we needed during our stay in Tahoe. John and Lana were very accommodating even with our extremely late arrival.
My wife and I had a really good time staying at John and Lana's place at Tahoe. The room was clean and cozy. Everything we needed was included. The waterfront view is awesome.The house is located at a convenient distance to Heavenly ski resort, good local restaurants and grocery store. John and Lana are great hosts, we had some interesting and fun conversations in the evenings. Definitely much better experience for us than staying in a hotel.
John and Lana are wonderful hosts. We arrived in Tahoe late in the night, and they made sure everything was in place. The house is conveniently located about 10 mins from the slopes. And finally, both John and Lana are very friendly, and if you are considering a visit to Tahoe, I would highly recommend their house.
Very nice neighborhood, and very nice and comfortable house. Although we saw Lana and John only on our first and last evenings at their place, they made sure to give us all the information we could need to enjoy our stay in the house as well as info on nearby restaurants and hikes.
On a rainy day we went to the local indoor swimming pool + outdoor hot tube and it was nice.
