Perfect weekend getaway by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We planned our last summer weekend with the kids, and had the privilege of staying at Mike's condo. The place was perfect for our family, and had plenty of space to roam around. The kids loved sleeping in the third floor loft by themselves.

Location was a mere mile from the lake, which made it very convenient for us to do our lake activities. There were probably a good 3-5 vendors around the area to rent kayaks/SUP's from. Safeway is down by the lake too, which we ended up buying last minute food supplies from.

All in all, we loved this place & location so much, we're already thinking of making this an annual North Tahoe vacation get away for summer and winter. Highly recommend staying at this condo for the ease of booking, to the location and amenities.

Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and glad you enjoyed your stay. I have to admit, it is nice to have a Safeway that is open 24 hours a day just a mile away and with the changes to downtown Kings Beach, it makes an excursion to the lake very easy, enjoyable and accessible. Mike

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything needed for a weekend in Tahoe! The 3 stories were a great layout for everyone to spread out, the location was close to everything you'd want in North Shore, and the house was fully equipped with more than enough amenities. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could think of and more, there were bins full of extra linens/towels if needed, and Mike was so easy to work with and get this booked. The only negative thing I could say about the house is that the wood beamed ceilings would creak for those on the bottom floor when those above are awake, but if you're a heavy sleeper, then it's no worry. Overall, my friends and I had a great time and will definitely return again if we get a chance to make another trip up there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The condo is our 2nd home and we keep it stocked as if we are living there. Glad you appreciate the house being fully equipped with amenities and the kitchen being fully stocked as well. Having everything available makes it easier to prepare meals and not have to purchase every item from the store. My cupboards note states. "feel free to use anything but replace it if you use it up". This makes it very convenient for the guest staying and the next guest has the item available as well as when I am staying. Also, I recognize the people staying in the Master bedroom on the first floor, which is located under the living room on the 2nd floor tend to hear the noise from the 2nd floor living room activities. I am struggling with how to address this noise transmissivity between the condo's rooms and can only suggest the guest be courteous when someone is sleeping in the master bedroom, but I will continue to work on it. thanks for bringing this to my attention. Hope to see you return in the future. Mike & Dave Kraus

Absolutely Everything We Hoped For...

  • 5 of 5

Went up for a lady's weekend & could not be more impressed by this residence. Not only was it exceptionally furbished, but the heating, water pressure (for showers), & easy access to utilities made it feel like a second home. The owner put together a white binder that explains (in great detail) how to set up amenities like high-speed internet (Wifi & access to laptop computer), Bose surround sound system (made watching 'Gangs of New York' feel like we were in a theatre), & activities to do in the immediate surrounding area.

Although we did not make a fire in the fireplace, I noticed that directions to do so were neatly laid out & wood was conveniently located on the bottom floor porch.

We will definitely go here again & gladly give this condo a 5-star review. Everything was easy & comfortable, which made the stay feel like the perfect vacation. Note: Waffle maker in the kitchen = BEST SURPRISE!

Cozy, comfortable home within easy distance of the slopes

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. It's more spacious than it looks in the photos and very comfortable. The location was convenient for skiing as well. It's well-equipped and super cozy with multiple throws/blankets in every corner. The kids took the sleds to a little hill right behind the property and were busy for hours.

The only minor thing I would bring up is the signage in the complex, which is not the owner's responsibility, of course. It was a little difficult to read the unit numbers especially at night, and if they could improve this, it would be perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback. It is always good to hear I am on the right track to accommodates my tenants during their stay. Nice to hear the kids enjoyed the sleds available at the unit. Also you are not the first tenant to bring to my attention the condo is larger than it appears in the pictures on the VRBO web page. The living room area / TV area is especially relevant to your comments... As far as the unit number visibility, I recognize how it might be difficult to find the condo in the complex, especially at night. I will write the home owners association and mention this to them to see if they can reconcile the issue. In the mean time, I will update my map that I provide to my tenants to allow better navigation to the condo. thank you Mike & Dave Kraus
