Stayed in about 6 different Tahoe homes over the last 8 years and this one ranks up there with the best. It’s very private, which is nice. Inside had everything we needed to have a nice relaxing week. With temps going up a little each summer it’s a bit warm. If I had any suggestion it would be that it’s time to invest in ceiling fans since the place has no AC but we knew that going in. Overall great place and highly recommend.

The house is a great location. Close to the lake and town. You can walk to the lake from the house. Nice quiet neighborhood. The house is as you see in pictures. Lots of fans available to help keep you cool in summer. Great choice of TV channels and streaming channels if you do any TV watching. Nice updated main bathroom. Fully equipped kitchen.. bring your own spices as these are not kept there for bears. Kids room with bunks fun for kids and some Board games. House had a nice cabin mountain feel.. bring beach towels and beach chairs as they are not provided. They do have beach umbrellas though. Outside furniture a little run down but probably hard to maintain in the harsh winter climate. Overall we had a great time with our party of 7. The communication was quick and easy with the rental agents and they replied quickly with any issues . I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a mountain get away .

The vacation rental home in North Lake Tahoe was a GREAT place to stay because the most important deciding factor was that it is PET FRIENDLY (no additional charge). The large wrap around deck with bbq grill was great to enjoy including the car port made it much more convenient for parking on premises. Especially ,the stock of firewood readily available for the wood stove insert to enjoy after a long day of exploring. The newly remodeled kitchen and bathrooms were accommodating and the use of the Rachel Ray cookware made the preparation of meals even more easier for our group of six. Having our three-year old Mini Pinscher with us on our vacation made this centrally located home in CARNELIAN BAY even more ENJOYABLE which DEMONSTRATES that AGATE BAY REALTY really cares about FAMILY.

I really enjoyed staying here. It was cleaner than I expected. I love the layout of house. Had modern touches in all the right places (bathrooms and kitchen) but also a nice rustic feel. A Very cozy place. The house was fully stocked with all cooking necessities and then some. Agate reality was extremely helpful and they took time after we checked in to send email to see if all was ok. We didn’t use the entire place just me and my husband but I would like to return with family or friends.

Bring supplies

Reviewed on 2020-09-20 by Alexa
We enjoyed our stay here and the location was great, but there were definitely a few basic amenities that could be improved. We booked for a full week and were given only a few rolls of toilet paper and paper towels. The house also didn’t have basic cleaning supplies so we had to go out and buy all purpose spray so we could keep the kitchen counters clean. I would also bring your own soap, shampoo and conditioner because they only provide a few small toiletries. The house could use some updates but the bathrooms are updated which was nice, the rooms are fine and we loved having the deck. Also, just make sure you know there isn’t AC, so it does get a bit warm inside during the day but there are standing fans in each room that help. This house is definitely a bit worn and there is room for updates but all in it, it met our basic needs for the week.

Great location - great property - really appreciate being able to bring the dogs (2 golden retrievers)Two minor cons: 1) cabin does not have central air conditioning and, dear me, it was quite hot. Agate Bay Realty brought us two additional room fans (plus the one that was already in the cabin) which worked great when you opened the windows and allowed the cooler night air in to circulate. There are screens missing from some of the windows, too, which means lots of buggies at night. But these were tolerable and certainly didn't diminish the experience. 2) wifi was a bit spotty. If I had work to do I might have been quite frustrated. But since I was on vacation...I really didn't mind all that much. The teenagers did, though.

We had to buy our own barbecue utensils so we could barbecue!!! Wished they had bigger serving bowls for salads and pastas; good thing we brought some our own aluminum serving trays so we can actually serve buffet style meals. They also need more pots and pans to cook with (variety in sizes lacking) especially frying pans. Chopping boards were too small (only two very small ones) and kitchen knives were inadequate (a kitchen block w/basic chef knife/steak knife set would have been nice). They also lacked a fold away game table, so family can enjoy playing board games and cards, we had to use dining table and was very difficult to play games. Just those basics would have made for a more enjoyable stay. Overall just average!!!

Somewhat Disappointing

Reviewed on 2013-07-14 by A FlipKey verified reviewer of Carson City
My largest disappointment was not as much with this particular rental as it was with the fact that this was not the property I had initially rented, received confirmation on and paid for. Several days after receiving my confirmation, I received a call stating that the particular property I had rented required a "Saturday to Saturday" reservation, because of the included access to the agate Bay Club, and was asked if I would be willing to change my dates. This fact, however, was not listed anywhere on the website, and a subsequent check of the reservation calendar for the property I had initially rented, revealed that someone else had rented the property for the exact same time period that I had requested(not a Saturday to Saturday). Distressing, to say the least. This house was my alternate selection and showed as costing less than my initial choice, however, I was charged the exact same amount as the first rental, which had more amenities. While this property was adequate, there were several things that require some attention. There are an ample number of beds, however, the beds in bedrooms 2 and 3 are quite uncomfortable; there were no screen doors on the 2 sliding doors, and with temperatures in the 80s during our stay, it would have been nice to be able to open the doors; the refrigerator came with instructions not to adjust the temperature, which we did not, however, someone must have turned the settings all the way up, so after a few days all of the fresh food began to freeze; the deck is in serious need of repairing; deck furniture is inadequate for number of people the house is said to accommodate; this property is located on the main street in and out of the neighborhood, so there is a fair amount of traffic and noise. The best features were: a brand new propane b.b.q.; master bed was very comfortable; there were plenty of towels; kitchen was well stocked; nice neighborhood; short walk to dog friendly beach.
Manager response on 2013-07-14 - Response from Agate Bay Realty
Thank you for the review. All of the properties that require a Saturday to Saturday indicate this restriction on their web listing but the website does not allow to mandate this restriction with on-line bookings. The house you booked (Rice) and the Kirschner property were the same rate over the 4th of July.

We had the housekeeper adjust the refrigerator after your stay and are having the owner put in some sliding glass door screens and look at the mattresses in the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms but we haven't had an complaints on these from previous guests yet.

Thank you.

The location was fine but the upkeep not so. Broken down BBQ looked like it was just tossed off the deck to ground below. Sitting on the deck you could smell the stench of septic or sewage. A stereo to play music and listen from the deck would have been nice. Playing a CD via the Tv's DVD not quite up to what you would expect. Beds were comfortable but the house really needed cleaning. Cobwebs everywhere and the bathroom sink in the master bath looks terrible. I wouldn't recommend this house to friends as it just isn't up to the standard I was expecting. We have a rental in Sun River, Oregon and it is much nicer for about the same price.

After a tiring day in the sun, teh plumbing noices at night (sounded like motorcycles stuck in a pipe) left people disturbed. While we enjoyed our overall stay, everyone of the 9 of us were irritated by the noise that actually woke people up at times.

I'm so glad your overall stay was enjoyable, but the noises sound terrible! I've never heard that before about this home, so I will have to investigate further. Thank you so much for letting us know!

Average home with good view of trees

This is an average, relatively clean home. Good beds, poor kitchen utensils. One burner on stove was intermittent. Comfortable living room with small TV. Single step up to kitchen and MBR hard to see. It needs to be marked with a contrasting color.

Thank you so much for your suggestion for marking the step. That is a great idea! I've ordered new kitchen utensils and I'm having the burner looked at. I'm glad I was able to get in touch with you regarding which burner it was. Next time please let us know if you have any issues during your stay, so we can resolve them in time for you to enjoy! Thanks again!

Good place to stay. A little run down in areas but adequate.

I really liked the layout and feel of this house for our multiple families. The location was also great and there was nice land behind the house for the kids and dogs to play. However, the kitchen was very poorly stocked with very old appliances and the dishware that was in bad shape. Also, the towels were all frayed and very old. Sheets and beds were nice. The "stereo system" was a boom box with a cassette player! Also, there were little things broken, loose and stained around the inside and outside of the house. It really needs some TLC and with a little effort and expense, the owners could make this a very enjoyable house. Agate Bay Realty experience was great. They are very helpful and available for our questions.

Overall a wonderful experience

Had a nice time overall. However, the website mentioned there will be a hot tub at the home but in actuality there was no hot tub. The on call manager informed me that it was web page error. Also, I was informed that there will supplies for a barbeque but there were none. Otherwise, the house was clean, well supplied, comfortable and appliances were in good working order.
