The studio is a lovely base to explore South Lake Tahoe. Ron, who owns the timeshare, is polite and prompt when responding to reservation requests.
The service was wonderful. We arrived early and weren't supposed to check in until 4pm, but the reception staff telephoned housekeeping to ensure the room was cleaned promptly so we could check in earlier. The reception staff and concierge were friendly and polite throughout our stay.
The studio itself is classically decorated and looks exactly like the pictures. It's spacious, with the kitchen area including a dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven, microwave, blender and pressure cooker. There's a large supermarket (Raleys) five minutes walk away, so it's easy to cater for yourself if none of the nearby restaurants appeal.
The location is wonderful, a ten minute walk to the beach, a ten minute walk to the casinos, Heavenly Village is on your doorstep and the BlueGo bus can take you to Kingsbury Transit Centre or the Y Transit Centre once an hour for just $2. We came via Amtrak, but secure valet parking is available.
I made use of the hot tub and the pool, which were clean and comfortable. There is also a spa within the complex, which I didn't try as it seemed to be rather expensive. ($30 for an eyebrow wax/shape!) This is hardly the fault of the owner, though, and all the spas in South Lake Tahoe seemed to be pretty pricey!
I can't think of much that would improve the place, and I wish we could have had an extra night there.
