The usual - please use your good common sense and judgement and everything will be fine.
My stay in Lake Tahoe was my first time using airbnb. Peter and Desiree were so welcoming and kind, and they really took the time to give us their personal touches. The provided refreshments, great suggestions for things to do, and truly made us feel like we were staying with old friends rather than strangers. We will absolutely be coming back. I couldn't have imagined a better place to stay for our trip to South Lake Tahoe.
My whole family was so pleased with this rental from the moment we pulled up. Peter was in communication by text, anticipating our arrival. I texted to say we made it and he met us outside before I even left the car! We were warmly welcomed and shown into the place. IT IS GORGEOUS. It is decorated in such a warm and fun way, and Peter & Desiree went above and beyond with personalizing things for my family as well as anticipating any and all of our needs. My son was sad to leave, and my family has already decided to book another trip ASAP because we just loved it THAT MUCH.
Peter and Desiree were tremendous and accommodating hosts! From being our local concierge with great nearby restaurant and activity options, to stocking welcome snacks and beverages, Peter made our weekend all the warmer and brighter (although 68 degrees in February was quite warm already).
The location, property, decor, amenities and attention to detail were all perfect and far exceeded our expectations.
We'll certainly be staying here again on future trips to South Lake Tahoe, and will encourage others to do the same!
Thank you for the hospitality, dedication and compassion you showed in every aspect of our stay.
My two sons and myself could not have asked for a better first Airbnb experience. From the moment I asked an initial question about availability, through booking, and then our stay itself Peter & Desiree made us feel welcome and looked after. The apartment (one bed, with living room sleeper) was perfect for two 7-year olds and their dad to catch some skiing/snowboarding. Throughout our stay Peter ensured we had what we needed and more. Location was perfect for Heavenly, and access to the lake.
It was wonderful to host Ian and his boys. (Two perfectly behaved gentlemen in the making). I give Ian double bonus points for taking care of the boys the whole weekend and tip my hat to your patience and love that you show them.
Make sure the boys come back (and this time Tracey as well) during the summer month. Lake Tahoe is beautiful and awaits your return.
Desiree & Peter
Sometimes when I read so many five star reviews I think, this sounds too good to be true! But everything you'll read about Peter and Desiree's apartment -- and their exceptional hospitality! -- is absolutely true. We loved our stay here; it was perfect for our family of three. Peter even left a birthday balloon for our son because we were there celebrating our son's birthday weekend. Highly recommend! Thanks for everything, Peter and Desiree.
Thank you for your wonderful review. There is nothing better than when guest come up to the Lake, to celebrate something; a birthday, an anniversary, a honeymoon, whatever it is ... we love to be part of it in a small way.
Let's make this an annual celebration -lol- we'll see the three of you every year! :)
Thanks for your great public thoughts.
Peter and Desiree were amazing hosts. The Kudu apartment is much larger than it looks in pictures and is very well appointed. Our stay was truely a spa getaway experience and anything we possibly needed was provided, slippers, bath robes, and even some wine. Peter and Desiree were even kind enough to take our dog out for a hike while we were skiing. We could not have asked for a better experience and we will definitely stay with Peter and Desiree again.
Thank you Sean for your kind comment. Only small error that we need to correct; it was your delightful and wonderful dog, that 'took us on a hike'! Heidi is so well behaved and such a great dog that it was completely our pleasure to have her with us. Our best to Anna. Come back soon!
Desiree & Peter
This was easily the best AirBNB experience I've had. Peter was extremely hospitable and the apartment was incredible. They thought of everything! The place is also just a two minute walk to the lake, and nearby a really nice cafe (Bear Beach Cafe) and another really nice bar (McDuff's), and most importantly just a short drive to Heavenly Ski Resort! I can't stress enough how great this listing is. I highly recommend it!

We are both proud Americans who have lived in the USA for quite a while and have recently discovered beautiful South Lake Tahoe. We have both traveled the world, but Tahoe remains at the top of our list.
Peter, a Dutchman was born in Germany and grew up in Rome. Desiree, German-Afrikaans, grew up in the Southern Hemisphere - born and lived in Namibia, she studied and worked in South Africa before moving to the US in her thirties. Peter works for a SLT Hotel as the Director of Sales & Marketing and frequently travels representing his resort.
Desiree loves and works with children in schools in Sacramento and spends her weekends and school holidays in beautiful Tahoe. Together we have explored numerous hiking trails, long and short, easy and not so easy and relished in the beauty of the forests, creeks and mountains. In summer, we enjoy the lake by swimming, canoeing, stand up paddling and jet skiing. At night, we love to visit our favorite pub, or lounge at our favorite restaurant on the shore, as the sun is setting over the lake.
Come stay with us, let us pamper you and let us share with you what magical places we have gotten to know around Tahoe. We can help with hiking trails, beach options and many other activities on and around the lake, the ski slopes and last but not least, the exciting casinos and shows.
