Warning: By booking to stay at this home via AirBnB, you are acknowledging that your usage of the Hot Tub is at your own risk.

Interaction with guests

The best way to reach out for questions and help is via AirBnB messaging, then text messaging, then phone calls in that order. You may need to walk to the top of the hill in front of the house to get an AirBnB message out. AirBnB will send a message to everybody at the same time. Text messages go to individuals and phone calls are difficult.

Other things to note

The most common feedback we get from guests:
1. The lighting is dim. Please check the dimmers on all switches if you think a light is blown or dim. Some bedrooms are dim, we have supplemented with additional lighting.
2. The house has no traditional cable TV. There is really, really good internet and you can stream anything on the PS4 or your own equipment.
3. Please provide the access information to all parties in your group so you don't leave your family and friends in the cold and then leave me bad feedback that your guests could not get inside.
4. The hot tub cover is heavy, please use two people to take it on and off. We have had too many guests break the cover by trying to put it on by themselves. Rips and other damage WILL occur if you try to move it by yourself.

The house is LEAVE IT AS YOU FOUND IT which includes self cleaning & checkout. If you want a cleaning service we can arrange it for a fee. Otherwise you are expected to wash bathrooms, kitchen dishes, make beds used etc. etc. The reason our home is so inexpensive is because we don't want to worry about all the logistics. We will berate people who leave the house a mess when they leave. You are booking a pack/in pack/out house, please be aware. We do offer a $150 cleaning option in which case you can leave the home and not worry about cleaning it. A house not cleaned sufficiently will be charged appropriately up to the $150 fee taken out of the deposit.

If it snows at the house; you have to shovel/snow blow your way out. We do have a service that will come for $50 to shovel for you. Please let us know your preference.

Our family had a good time staying at this cabin and had a blast playing foosball and shuffleboard in the game room. We couldn't figure out how to make the stereos work upstairs or downstairs (and both my son and I work with technology) but that didn't stop us from having a great time. There were notes throughout the house, which was very helpful when questions arose. The cabin is very dated (60s-70s) and there is even a refrigerator from the 1950's in the game room, but his is part of the charm, in my opinion. We had a good time staying here and would do it again. Thank you for everything!

Response from Christopher:
Tested all equipment in the house. Upstairs stereo works on blue tooth. Simply connect to the bluetooth device or use the iPad in the kitchen. Downstairs Television and Stereo did not have the correct inputs set. Reset them in about 30 seconds. Unfortunately, AirBnB guests often try to customize the system for their stay or change configurations by accident and find themselves unable to change it back. They were reset after this guests stay.

Christopher's home was perfect for our friend reunion (12 guys in their mid 30's). Very spacious, clean, and tons of activities (hot tub, pool, shuffle board, foosball, PlayStation). I would absolutely recommend staying with Christopher if you have a larger group, and want to be close to everything. Thanks for the great stay!

Had an amazing stay! Lots of room to spread out, especially since there were only 6 of us. There are three different levels plus the fabulous back porch/hot tub so everyone was able to get comfortable in their favorite space. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and Pope Beach was only 8 minutes away. The kitchen is super functional with lots of counter space. We had fun taking turns making meals for the group each night. We brought our own entertainment but there are TONS of games and things to do. We are already talking about booking Christopher's place for a future visit.

So much kitschy personality, this place. My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed the 70s party basement and hilarious labels all over the house ("no need to be back here at all"). Back porch is a highlight. Would definitely stay here again.

Great weekend stay at Chris' house. Well equipped and in a central neighborhood in South Tahoe. Chris was a great host and very responsive.
