We loved our stay here!!
Directions / instructions for our weekend were excellent, as was the quality of the home and amenities.
We walked in to a nice bottle of wine and a note from the family welcoming us, and Dave was very prompt to respond to any questions + very flexible for us.
I absolutely hope to stay here again soon!
This place was amazing! I planned a weekend trip to Tahoe for my brother's birthday, and there was 10 of us total. There was ample amount of room (plus more!) for everyone to sleep comfortably. The place had everything you would need (i.e. hot tub, fire pit, espresso machine, grill, blender, pots, washer/dryer, towels, etc). The listing was as described and Dave was very easy to get into contact with. Whenever I had any questions, I got an immediate response. Anytime I plan on staying in/near Tahoe, I would love to stay at this place again! Thanks for providing an awesome place for my friends and I to stay at, Dave.
I highly recommend!
Our stay in Dave's home started as a birthday celebration for my husband and ended up a celebration of family. Dave's home not only accommodated all 9 of us easily but also comfortably. We cooked, hiked and swam at Donner Lake.
Dave was the best host ever, making sure everything was there for us and always available if there were any questions. I highly recommend this beautiful home to those who love being outdoors!
We had a great time at this cabin. The home was beautiful just as described. The kitchen was great, and carefully labelled so that everything was easily found.
Dave was a great host, communicative and helpful. The house had convenient placed instructions, so that we never had any problems.
We would definitely stay here again.
Dave was very gracious and left a bottle of wine for our family to enjoy. The kitchen was well equipped which was a huge plus for a family that loves to cook together. We are looking forward to our next Tahoe getaway here soon!
We had a great time at Dave's house! He was very clear with instructions before we arrived. The house was incredibly beautiful, clean, and cozy. We slept 12 people very comfortably. The house was very organized so it made cooking and cleaning super easy. We hope to stay at Dave's place again!!
We had a great time at Dave's house. We were a group of friends who wanted to get away for the weekend to catch up with each other and enjoy the outdoors and this house was just perfect! The location was great, close to freeway and groceries, but still very quiet, with trails right by the backyard, made it very convenient for the people in our group to go out for morning runs and a couple evening hikes right from the house.
The big size kitchen allowed for several people to be around the kitchen at the same time, collaborating on our brunch and dinner meals. We definitely made good use of the full size cooking range and the espresso machine. The dinning/living room area is very spacious, yet feels cozy, especially the oversize sofa chairs that give it a very welcoming feel.
The house layout with all the bedrooms on the lower floor is also great for groups, as the late sleepers or early risers can be around the kitchen and living room without disturbing the people in the bedrooms.
We all went home very happy with this place and are already planning to rent it again in a few months.
Dave's communication before the weekend was very thorough and there are also instruction notes around the house for how to use the appliances, hot tub, a/c, etc, so we barely needed to communicate during the weekend itself. I only had one question, which he answered within minutes.
About the Host, Dave
I live in the bay area, and love escaping to Tahoe to go mountain biking in the summer and snowboarding in the winter!
When I found this home, I knew it was going to be the perfect mountain retreat to escape the crazy pace of Silicon Valley. I've taken great pride in furnishing and setting it up -- everything from stocking the kitchen with nice knives and an espresso machine to my summer project installing the outdoor hot tub and fire pit. I hope you enjoy staying here as much as I do!
