Cheri's home was gorgeous - exactly as pictured. Cheri greeted us warmly when we arrived. She left a very detailed guest book that answered any questions we had. We had a wonderful weekend at the house, enjoying cooking, gathering in the living room and hanging out on the deck, watching storms roll in over the lake. On the next trip to Tahoe, we will definitely try to book Cheri's place again:)
This is a fantastic space, and our host Cheri was very attentive. Sometimes pictures on website listings don't always tell the truth, but these pictures are real. Not only is it situated in a great area, in King's Beach, but also the house is very comfortable, very good beds and nice bedding, and it has a fully equipped kitchen.The deck and the view of the lake is gorgeous, the large open living room and kitchen is perfect for a large group, and the yoga studio, although smaller than what I expected was a nice extra for those of us who wanted to stretch and do yoga. Some of our guests enjoyed the sauna very much, and it really felt like we were in someone's home. It's also very quiet, there is no traffic, and I was able to sleep soundly in a cozy environment. Parking out in front can fit up to 3 vehicles.
Cheri's has created a warm, welcoming, cozy space that feels like home away from home! She is also incredibly prompt and responsive in answering ALL my questions before our stay. This was my second stay in this house, this time for a yoga retreat. We practiced in the gorgeous yoga loft; from the deck, we gazed in awe at the shimmering light shining on Lake Tahoe; we created feasts in the kitchen with the rockstar range; we built a fire each night basking in it's warmth while we laughed in "the nest" (as we named the living room). The sauna, the whirlpool tub, the cozy bedrooms, the hiking trail at the end of the road, and so on... an absolutely perfect place for our retreat. Thank you, Cheri!
Cheri's place is in great shape and quite appealing--new, higher-end gas range/oven; large new refrigerator (very clean); well-painted rooms; cozy rugs in upstairs living room and yoga loft; roomy & comfy couch upstairs; warm beds; stereo upstairs (we brought a headphone to right/left RCA connector cord and played tunes from our iPhones); large flat-screen TV upstairs (with kindly- provided additional HDMI cable for connecting a laptop from which to play movies) and similar TV downstairs; and very large two-story deck that would be great for warm-weather visits. It's clear this house is loved by it's owner. The street is also very dog-friendly and my two mutts met many canine neighbors--they had a great time, too!
We were concerned about parking availability, but there is room for three cars in the drive and one more on the side of the road a handful of meters away.
We expect to visit again!
Our family stayed here for six days over Christmas 2013 and had a wonderful time. The house had everything we needed, including kitchen equipment to make turkey with all the trimmings, cookies and mince pies. It was very conveniently located for the supermarket and other shops in Kings Beach as well as ski resorts. The recent snow had been removed from the road and the trucks came round regularly to salt the road, sometimes three times a day. We never had time to use the sauna but the whirlpool tub was appreciated after skiing all day.
It's a good, quiet location in King's Beach. The place was tidy but wasn't clean.
In the 5+ years I have rented the house I have used the same cleaner and never received a complaint. She is an absolute perfectionist who takes great pride in her work. In this case, the house was professionally cleaned top-to-bottom the day of this guest's arrival. Had I known the house not been cleaned to the guests' satisfaction, I would have been happy to send another cleaning crew over there at a time that was convenient. I encourage all my guests to call me during their stay if there is anything they need.
