Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed here before and it's a nice home. There were a few things - upstairs towels smelled of mold, the scrubber in the sink as well as sponge needed replacement and the bbq was out of propane. Little things but should be addressed with the cleaning company. We have stayed at 6 different homes in the Truckee area - this is the one company which both times we have stayed have not allowed late checkout. Personally I think 10am is early for checkout (typically 11am is standard) but it is what it is. We stayed at Old Greenwood the last visit and management was very flexible on checkin/checkout - house was immaculate. We would stay here again but would probably look around first before we chose this property just due to the checkout and housekeeping issues. Overall - nice house, good location and great for 2 small families.

Good Rental

  • 4 of 5

The rental was adequate. The home is well built with high quality materials through-out. The negatives were minor but irritating.


High quality built home (one exception see negatives), Great Location, Gas Grill is hard line gas not propane (big deal to hard core BBQ'ers), Great deck overlooking golf course hole 7, High quality appliances except dishwasher see negatives, felt the house was well equipped with everything you would need, nice having four full baths, three of which in bedrooms, Great clubhouse within walking distance, property management company was responsive and available.


High cleaning fee but not thorough, example: 1/8" dish soap left in bottle with no backup, had to purchase more especially since dishes generally not clean but put away when we arrived, this may be caused by the dishwasher as dishes seemed to be coming out dirty which required additional hand washing after already being cleaned prior to placing in dishwasher, coffee grounds and filter were left in coffee pot from previous visitors use. Two very large bulges or humps (2-3" high x 6" wide) in the wood floor by refrigerator causing people to trip several times when accessing that area. TGPM was already aware but should warn people ahead of time especially if families have younger children or seniors during visit. Was told this will be repaired and there was a large stack of wood in garage indicating this. FYI, one of the beds is in the office and is a Murphy bed. Bed was fine just not pictured.

Overall good experience.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental property was adequate, but not great, especially considering the price. The location of the bedrooms under the main living area, without any soundproofing between the floors and the ceiling, was a real problem for us, especially since we have 3 young children. You could hear every footstep above the bedroom. It was also very discouraging that the owners did not leave a garage door remote, and would not give us the keypad code to enter the garage. They didn't even leave an extra key! We stayed there during heavy snowstorms, and it was such an inconvenience to have to use the lockbox every time we wanted to enter the house from the driveway. The management company was nice enough to bring us one garage door remote part way through our stay, but only because we begged for it. And that didn't help with our second car. For the price we paid for this rental, you would think the owners would want to make the stay as convenient as possible for their guests, not as inconvenient as possible. It was really disappointing. Also the kitchen was not well appointed - we tried to cook a couple of meals at the home and found that it lacked basic tools, such as a full sized cutting board. The management company and the location were both good, but we were disappointed with the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review this home. We have tried many times to provide garage door openers to renters, but much more often than not, they end up inadvertently making their way home with our guests, so we ask that the garage door is opened from inside. As you experienced, we are happy to provide one in the case of a particular need - such as a snow storm. All you have to do is ask!

Nice big, clean home with lots of privacy!

My family stayed in this home for Thanksgiving. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. 3 of the 4 bedrooms had private bathrooms inside the bedrooms. The home is spacious, clean, and well equipped. We loved staying here!
