Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was our first experience renting through Airbnb, and it was great! Kathleen was responsive and all the cabin instructions were clear. When we found we had a question, we consulted the document provided and the answer was there. The cabin was cozy and had all the amenities we needed — including a booster seat for our daughter (which we forgot). The kitchen is well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. I had forgotten to ask about linen service, but we had PLENTY of towels, paper towels, toilet paper, and even tissues (which came in handy as a few of us had a cold).

    The location is great! It's off the main road and is very quiet. The cabin is next to forestry land and there's a trail to follow up into the woods. We didn't venture far, but enjoyed a little sledding with our daughter on the nearby hill (the sled was provided!).

    Thanks, Kathleen, for a great trip! We hope to come back again sometime soon.

  • It's my first time to get Lake Tahoe and we have a great time living in Kathleen's chalet. We spend 2 nights at the chalet. The chalet is clean, quiet and comfortable. We have almost everything we wanted in the chalet. My friends and I enjoy the every second at there!

  • We had a great stay in Tahoma! The house was perfect and served all of our needs. When we had an issue with the stove I easily contacted Kathleen and we were able to talk through the issue.

    Overall, the house was very comfortable and had all the amenities and more. I would stay here again!

    Response from Kathleen:

    Thanks for the kind words and thanks for helping out. Hope to see you soon.

  • Rented this house in early June with some friends to explore some of the mountain biking trails around Tahoe. House was clean, spacious and well stocked with all the essentials - much more so than most rentals I've stayed in. Location was fine - realistically, you are driving 15-45 minutes to most outdoor activities in the Tahoe area anyway, and we appreciated the quiet setting. All in all, a tremendous value for the area.

    Response from Kathleen:

    Thanks for the detailed review. We would be happy to have you again.

  • This place was great! It is well secluded in the rear of the court with amazingly accessible hiking just steps away. Definitely a relaxing and fun place to be. The house was charming and large enough to accommodate our 10 people party! Thanks Kathleen!

    April 2013
  • Very comfortable house with a convenient location for skiing at Homewood. All new appliances, very easy to use. Had no problems with entry or exit, and the host made our stay quite easy. I would definitely recommend this house!
