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.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home! Everything was clean, luxurious and stunning. Great location. Great views. Great kitchen. We loved hiking in the park out back and sledding in the yard. We cannot recommend Dave as a host and his home more highly.
Dave was a great host all throughout my weekend trip to Tahoe! He answered all questions thoroughly and promptly. You'll see that he takes great care of his renters and cabin.
The cabin was beautiful and even more charming in-person. My family and I (12 of us on the trip) all loved how the place was fully stocked. We fully enjoyed the gorgeous dinner table, hot tub, and fire pit. The backyard is fantastic! We followed a trail that led to a sweet open field of wilderness and snowfields. The neighbors even gave us a tip on how to exit the icy driveway - back out onto the road, tail first!
I would highly recommend Dave's cabin. Great location and only about 15 minutes away from Boreal.
The host was very responsive, nice, and informative when setting up the arrangements for the house. It was a beautiful neighborhood/location and easy to find as well as get into the home. It is convenient to ski resorts and restaurants. We were a group of 9 friends visiting for the weekend celebrating two of our birthdays... this was the perfect place to stay!! We were all pleasantly surprised at how big the house is, the pictures do not due it justice. We all slept comfortably and the house had all the amenities we needed. We loved the hot tub and fire pit. The open kitchen/dining room/ family room is perfect to all be together. We will definitely be renting this house again!
The house was truly amazing, it's in a really nice quite location, and the kitchen and eating area works perfectly for large dinners with your friends or family. We put it to the test of a Thanksgiving dinner and it worked out perfectly.
The pictures are very representative and live up to the expectation of a large, nicely decorated, welcoming house.
Dave was very welcoming and answered my questions very quickly. He's a great host that I'd rent from again.
Thanks for having us Dave!
Pro's & more Pro's! BEST HOUSE EVER!!!! SO GORGEOUS AND WONDERFUL!! WORTH EVERY PENNY! -This house is breathtaking. The pictures do not do the justice the atmosphere and wonderfulness. There is forest adventure right out the back door and the fire pit and hot tub are heavenly. -Every bed was deliciously comfortable and the house was wonderfully laid out for people to have down time and go to sleep in peacefulness. -The dinning room table was a wonderful main station for meals, scrabble, socializing and fun. -The kitchen is glorious and very functional and spacious and the fridge is plenty big, there is even a small one in the garage which was great ! -The décor and furnishings down to every detail is exceptional, warm, classy and delightful. Super fun huge vase of corks and bottles up in windows offering great ambiance! -Dave left a bottle of wine for us which was a beautiful touch! -The bedrooms are amazing!! Especially the master bed and bath! It is beyond dreamy!! and huge!!! -There was plenty of paper products and everything you would need to function for a weekend! I even brought our own paper products just in case and was pleasantly surprised to find how stocked the house was. -This house will forever be somewhere we will always love and recommend to friends and family. This was by far one of the most favorite houses I have ever rented. Our weekend was mellow, relaxing, breath taking and perfect. Dave's accommodation and communication before during and up until we checked out was far beyond what anyone can expect. He was great! We raved about him to all our friends staying with us or anyone who wanted to listen really! Dave's accommodation and kindness only made me want to run around all weekend making sure his home was being respected =) I can only hope we can rent again some day. Con's... -We were a huge coffee lover bunch of people and we all felt the drip coffee pot was disappointing. -Be sure to check and put up the thermostat downstairs when you get there, it was freezing down there at first! We also didn't know how to work the upstairs fire place which I felt bad having to contact Dave but he responded quickly with no issue! -For such a large house more space for recycling and garbage would be great. There was about 1/2 the length of the garage stacked with recycle when we got there and garbage already in the bear trash can. It made it a little difficult to walk away feeling like we left the garbage and recycle area as tidy as I would like. -It is nature and I totally understand that! We did spend quite a bit of time sweeping pine needles on decks and around fire and organizing the recycle to make more space. -Lastly I would say to make sure you clean up a step ahead of what you would consider "ready for cleaners"...
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!
