Firstly the good points, this property has great views and is well located for both Truckee and northern Lake Tahoe. It was hot when we visited so be aware that there's only fans in the main living room and there is no shade from any trees unlike many other properties in the area. The downstairs den/bunk room is generally much cooler then the upstairs area. The washing machine and drier are great and the other major appliances were all operational.
Unfortunately this property is let down by lack of maintenance and attention to detail. There are missing window blinds, the balcony rail is broken and held together with bungee, there are only a few clothes hangers and then these are mostly for small kids clothes. One window can't be opened as the fixing has come away from the frame. Despite what the property description states, there's no hairdryer. The key to the bear box was missing and despite calls to the managing agent (Turnkey), this was not resolved during our stay. The driveway to the house is quite narrow and there is limited room to turn your vehicle around - we had rented a full size SUV and were grateful that it was equipped with a rear camera otherwise turning around would be tricky. The den had a lizard as a resident - it was too fast to catch!
We heard movement behind the property during the middle of the night on three occasions so were concerned about overall security as we had open windows. On one occasion voices were heard and looking behind the property the area is compacted when there should be no reason for people to be there. We did wonder whether there were bears when no voices were heard.
As we were preparing to leave on our final day the local utility company arrived to serve a final notice in preparation for cutting off supply. Hopefully the cleaner dealt with this when they arrived and the people following us into the property didn't have to deal with this.
Overall the property was no better than okay for our stay but with some care and attention it could be so much better. Would we stay there again? No we wouldn't.
