We loved this home! It was the perfect place for my friends and I to reunite after not seeing one another in a long time. We barely left! It was wonderful to catch up with them and thank you for providing the space.

The house is Beautiful. We loved it and had a great time. No issue with any appliance. Loved it with the exception of the linen and maintenance of the furniture. The linen was not washed as an owner of a business that deals with linen I know. The carpet was not properly cleaned and the furniture. I would recommend that the company that handles the maintenance is told of their poor job. We had to wash all the linen and vacuum.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Giovanny. We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide for every guest prior to check-in. We are disappointed to see that this concern was not reported to us during your stay as we would have been happy to assist. We have passed your feedback regarding the linens and carpeting along to our housekeeping staff so they are aware of your concerns. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

Perfect layout!!! Kids absolutely loved the loft.

The house was great for cooking Thanksgiving dinner. The open kitchen and living room area was conducive to cooking and hanging out all day. The gas fireplace added to the festive atmosphere! It was nice to be able to walk along the creek trail nearby. Suggestions for improvement: Fix dishwasher (top rack did not get cleaned, so had to hand wash), provide dish towels and cleaning solution to wipe down counters, clean more thoroughly (found hairs on sheets and trash under the twin bed in the loft), and warn people about the poor WiFi. You could not work remotely here since the WiFi isn't consistent. I'd also note that this home is not great for light sleepers since the sound travels through walls and floors and the sound of hot water running upstairs is extremely loud - it sounds like the pipes are being hammered. None of these concerns were dealbreakers, however. The atmosphere of the house is nice. Overall a good option for a weekend trip!
Manager response:
Adrienne, thank you so much for your feedback and we are so pleased you enjoyed our property! We appreciate your suggestions for improvement and confirm our maintenance team will check that the dishwasher and the pipes are in working order. We will also make sure to provide extra dish towels per reservation. We haven't received other complaints from the WiFi but we believe it is working slower than usual this year due to the number of people working from home. We look forward to hosting you again!

We had a great stay at Alder Hill Overlook. My husband and our 2 month old daughter were looking for a quiet getaway and change of scenery from the four walls of our San Francisco 2 bed apartment. This rental had an amazing location and we loved the open layout of the kitchen and living area. A few things to note if you are considering this rental; the wifi is extremely temperamental. My husband was working remotely and had a few issues with it in the day, and at night it never really worked which meant we couldn't watch Netflix. The towels were also stained, we could tell they were clean, but as they are all white, the stains were visible (despite their strategic folding). We also couldn't get the jacuzzi bath to work (which could have been user error!). In addition, all of the cooking utensils were pretty outdated, we cooked for all of our meals so this was noticeable.
When we checked in, we had a few issues (TV not working and couldn't get the fireplace to turn on) so we call Vacasa. They were extremely helpful and so friendly on the phone. As it was late, they sent someone over first thing in the morning to resolve the problems. We mentioned that there was heavy snow coming and as the rental doesn't allow parking in the garage, if they knew whether the owner had a shovel. They did not believe the owner did, so a few hours later they dropped off a shovel, ice scraper and ice melt. Exceptional service!! We could not have been happier with the service we received from Vacasa.
In short, this is a great rental, it is just in need of a few upgrades.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Lucy! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry to hear you had problems with the WiFi, unfortunately, the internet connection is not always stable in Truckee. We confirm towels have been replaced and the jacuzzi tub is in working order. We look forward to hosting you again!

Kids had a blast. Everything was working and clean
enyinnaya n. Oct 2020
Was good start near a lot of amenities. Using the oven was difficult and some other appliances did not work. Vacasa sent maintenance people to fix items in a very expedited manner. Would difficulty do it again minus the clogged garbage disposal and oven issues.

My small family and I had a nice time and in general enjoyed the house. It is spacious and has a wonderful layout, especially the upstairs which is all open concept. The kitchen is gorgeous! My son loved the loft upstairs, it’s a great space for kids. A few things to bring to attention though. The carpets really need to be cleaned and or replaced. They are heavily stained in a couple rooms. The house is located off a busy street so there is road noise throughout the day. Attention to detail such as cleanliness and maintaining the house isn’t quite there. There were no batteries in the remotes, there are ripped screen doors, the downstairs tv does not work and the general cleanliness of the home upon checking in is not quite where it should be. When renting homes like these where you pay a good amount to rent and a hefty cleaning fee, the home should be spotless and kept up.

Easy booking experience; clean home; very comfortable; great location. Had a very pleasant stay with my husband and our fur baby.

The house was beautiful, kitchen was modern. Gas cooking was a plus. The house is above Truckee, but easy to get into town, to Northstar, or Kings Beach. You are very close to the forest so lots of trails close by. This was a great house to stay at.
I knocked one star off due to the carpets in the bedrooms have heavy stains. I figure if you have to pay a large cleaning bill, the house should be cleaned. Also there were toenail/fingernail clippings on one of the nightstands in the lower bedrooms.
The house was great, our only complaint was the cleanliness from the service. The price you pay for the cleaning service should leave the house spotless.
Manager response:
We're glad you enjoyed your stay in our home! We apologize for the cleanliness issues you encountered. The home was not cleaned to our own high standards. After being alerted to the carpet stains, we have arranged for a thorough deep-cleaning and stain-removal of the carpets in the home. We have also made sure that any other cleanliness issues in our home have been taken care of. We hope to host you again!

This house was great! We were a few families (some with kids). It had great open living spaces and also enough private areas. It’s a quick drive to anything you’d need but you’re still out in nature.
Grant L. Mar 2019
Location in proximity to the ski hill.... Z-Market (little corner store in neighborhood) made it easy to grab last minute things without trip into town. And lots of back yard space to build sledding hill and snowmen!
Lyubov I. Jan 2019
The house is beautiful. It has everything necessary for perfect vacation.
Nikita P. Jan 2019
This was an amazing place to celebrate 2019 NY. On NYE we were able to attend а fireworks show not far from the property. The property itself is pretty close to Reno (~30min) and all the amenities like shops and convenience stores (~10 min). Overall: 10/10 would rent this again.
Leilani S. Dec 2018
Great property for big group. Family friendly and the Property mgmt was able to provide and help us with what we need. It is very close to almost everything. It’s a good property for first timers and group. There are pots, pans, utensils, plates, towels, etc. in addition to the use of kitchen that available for you so you don’t have to bring too much belongings. Just bring your clothes and gears for skiing or snowboarding during winter. Quiet and nice neighborhood.

roomy house with plenty of room to move around
Erica O. Oct 2018
We came here for my mothers birthday and we had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful and had everything was well taken care of. We had 7 adults, 1 child and a dog. There was plenty of room for everyone. Luckily we had warm weather so we were able to take advantage of the back patio. Only minor complaint was there were no bowls, which made it difficult to have soup one night and the TV has direct TV, but no local channels, which was disappointing that we had to watch the world series on our phones. The beds downstairs were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend!
