Patti's apartment was as described: immaculately clean and very cozy. We checked in almost at midnight time and Patti was accommodating. She made time to meet and greet us in person the next evening. She provided everything we needed during our stay. We went to Homewood and Patti's place was a quite convenient location to get from. There is also a public bus stop walkable from her place. We would stay again!

We stayed here with our 6 month old for a weekend intending to enjoy some snow and boy did we get it. We ended up waiting out a heavy snow storm there and couldn't have been more comfortable. Patti helped provide us with additional equipment to dig our car out, provided snow shoes when we dared to venture outside, and offered food and trips to the store. We'll definitely be back when the weather is nicer!

Great location in Tahoe city. Her clean, cozy, well furnished apartment was perfect for the two of us for the weekend and Patti was a friendly and helpful host.

Patti's place felt like home, it was so cozy (although it's huge!) with all the amenities. We made all of our meals and the place had the cookware + basics (salt, pepper, butter, etc.), along with drinks and snacks. Location-wise, it was perfect, a couple minutes' drive to the busy stretch of Tahoe City; we went to Homewood and Squaw quite easily during our stay. After a long day of skiing, we relaxed by watching tv and lounging on the reclining chairs. Patti herself was a fantastic host. She was really accommodating when we were delayed due to road conditions, and was very gracious and made us feel at home - for example, she helped us when our snow chains were stuck on our tire! I would definitely stay again and highly recommend this place. Thanks Patti!
