Proximity to ski resorts is amazing! The place is just as seen in the pics. Stairs are a bit narrow, but the condo is perfect for two people and a dog. The neighborhood is nice for dog walks. The kitchen is smallish, but again, perfect for two. Definitely recommend.

Definitely sized for only two people, unreal beautiful woodworking and detailing all over the place, a phenomenal selection of old DVDs and tapes to take you back to your childhood, and everything was well organized and stocked.

Very quaint and cute cottage, but it is very small. Pictures make it look a bit bigger than it really is and the price point for such a small cottage was surprising. I guess it’s fairly standard for the Tahoe area, especially during the holidays. The tenants in the main house behind the cottage were awesome and helpful.

I booked this property from Sunday to Thursday. Upon my arrival, I found the home to be uncomfortably hot. The owner's book says to turn on the fan and open the windows. Unfortunately, the only fan in the house didn't work and the windows/sliding door didn't have screens so I couldn't leave them open. There is a door hidden behind wooden panels, that has a screen but for whatever reason, the owner didn't think it was advantageous to put a lock on that door. Ultimately, the only way I could cool down the house was to leave the patio door completely open. I am a single, petite, woman traveling by myself so this felt very unsafe. I wasn't expecting to have to choose my safety or comfort on this trip, especially considering the amount they charge. Of course, this was completely unacceptable and I chose to leave the property for my own safety.
At such short notice, I was unable to find another accommodation in the area so I had to spend a hot and sleepless night there on a half deflated blow up mattress (yes that's the only bed in the house). Upon my departure, I attempted to lock the front door using the unlock code provided to me by Vacasa. I didn't work. If I was to stay there the entire time, I guess I would have had to be okay with having my personal belongings and myself at the mercy of whoever wandered onto the property.
From the time I arrived until the time I left, I was in contact with the property owner as well as Vacasa regarding the circumstances. Vacasa was non-apologetic nor forthcoming with information on how to request a refund. I'm extremely disappointed in the quality and poor customer service for such a high-dollar property.
Manager response:
Karen, we are very sorry to hear about the issues you had during your stay. Please know that the safety and comfort of our guests are very important to us. Our team inspected the property upon your departure and confirmed the fan is working, the windows can be opened and the doors are locking. The owner will install screens on the windows soon. The home's mattress is an air mattress and is often deflated between guest stays - we apologize sincerely that this was not inflated properly prior to your arrival. While we understand this doesn't make up for the disappointing experience, we hope the refund issued shows our commitment to your satisfaction and our intention to make things right. We hope we can have another chance to host you when the time is right. Thank you!

We loved this tiny place. It felt so loved and had cds and vhs from the 70s and 80s. Very quiet and calm. We couldn't figure out how to turn on the ceiling fan nor how to turn off the bed heater. But the space was adorable. Nice neighbors and close beac access w as lkable to save the trouble of finding parking. We highly recommend.

Driving up to the house, we were floored. The property and the house are beautiful, The house inside and out looks brand new. The interior is quintessential old school European alpine flair. We will definitely look to book this house very soon. The owner has taken exceptional care and pride in this property.
