Wow where do I begin!!!! When you take the Key and open the doors it was like walking into a magical fairytale home. My Aunts and I decided on renting this home for a long weekend for my Mothers 60th birthday. John and Karen really did an amazing job at capturing every element of a storybook home. The yard was like walking into a fairy land with whimsical trees and landscape that took your breath away. Almost like walking into a secret garden. The Bedrooms were so amazingly decorated with clouds for beds. The Amenities are brand name and had everything that you would ever need and more in a home. It was hard to leave this place the energy was beautiful and it filled your heart with so much love. Pictures are great but, you need to see it to believe it. I only got to meet John and Karen for a minute, but I could tell they are real beautiful people. You could see they poured their love into this home. Thank you so much for letting us stay here, this stay created the best memories that will never be forgotten. We love you guys just for creating a magical place!!!!!
John's house in Tahoe was the perfect fit for our group. The kitchen was fully stocked, which was great as we love cooking and grilling while up in Tahoe. The listing location was really great too, in a very peaceful neighborhood.
John was also very easy to communicate with, he responded to questions very quickly. All in all, it was a great trip! Thanks, John!
We really enjoyed our week at the cabin. Just what we were looking for - quiet & comfortable, beautiful setting, all the comforts of home. It made for a great spring break for our family. John was a welcoming, accommodating and helpful host. We would definitely stay here again. Really enjoyed the hot tub too!
Wonderful experience - John is very responsive and extremely helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in the area. The house was just perfect - three nice rooms, a common area with TV/cable/DVD player, neat little kitchen nook, and outdoor deck and hot tub. There was something magical about sitting in the hot tub at night and seeing the moon through the tall trees - just made us appreciate the beauty of our surroundings.
We drove all around Lake Tahoe so we could get a sense of the whole area and undoubtedly, Carnelian Bay and this neighborhood is tucked away for a rustic, quiet retreat.
The house was great and we enjoyed our stay. The spacious living room and kitchen area was excellent and the hot tub is a great bonus as well.
Great neighborhood among tall trees! The house was spotless and a joy to stay at, just 20 mins from Alpine/Squaw

About the Host, John
My wife Karen and I are now retired and enjoying the Lake Tahoe lifestyle all four seasons. I'm trying to improve my golfing skills while she's an avid hiker and biker. We have three grown sons all pursuing their careers in the SF Bay Area, where all of us grew up. We love to travel in the off seasons and are looking forward to visiting airbnb properties in Europe, South America and Asia the next few years, while keeping our home base here in the Sierras. If we find a better place we'll let you know, but after all these years, Lake Tahoe is tough to beat!
Come to Tahoe, relax and enjoy the finest beauty nature has to offer! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and we would be more than happy to point you in the right direction!
