5/5 Excellent

    Loved the Tahoe charm and location was perfect!

    You'll love the decor feeling like you are in a Tahoe Bungalow with all Pine Furniture and nestled on the Beach in Tahoe Vista close to everything. Staff was super nice and Unit had everything we needed. We rented the large Studio and it was perfect.

    I loved this place! It came with everything you need ! :) It was our first time visiting, we stayed for 2 days so it was nice to be able to cook food inside the little cabin! They provide you with a oven and stove top, as well as a microwave and and little fridge . My other favorite part was that it was right by the lake which was BEAUTIFUL ! Definitely want to come back here :) The staff was very helpful with late check in ! They were great, thanks.
