Our group of four adults, three kids and a dog had a great time here. We made good use of the well stocked kitchen and hot tub. There were plenty of towels for both bathrooms and spa. The fireplace and the kids bunk room were our favorite parts. They had some fun puzzles and games if you can find all the pieces :)

Just as advertised, will be back

Everything was just as described and it looked just like the photos. We had a great time in the cabin, we played a few of the games they had, but some games were broken or missing pieces. Everything was clean and easy to find. It was nice, we felt safe, and the locals were very friendly. We might make this an annual trip.

Great, cozy house in an awesome location! We really enjoyed the living spaces and the hot tub. I would just note that the main bedroom on the second floor is directly above the main bedroom on the first floor, and sound proofing is close to none. So keep that in mind if you’re traveling with other couples.

Great place and location. Would come back!

It has two outdoor decks, one with a very clean hot tub and bbq and another front porch that’s really quiet and nice too. The house is well equipped and close to the paddle beach, which we loved. It’s not walking distance but there’s ample parking near the beach. I’d definitely love to stay here again!

Our previous AIRBNB placed was cancelled due to extenuating circumstances, however, Agate Bay Realty was able to accommodate at the last minute for us. We found this nice, quaint, and modern cabin in North Lake Tahoe. The place has all the amenities an amateur chef needs to throw down a 5 course Prime Rib dinner if you want to (I sure did). In addition, the cabin has moderate speed wifi, access to a nice entertainment system that people can watch HULU, NextFlix, Amazon Prime etc, and nice speakers for audiophiles. The place itself is very well kept and clean. The host has went above and beyond to make sure that cabin was well stocked with the necessities and the comfort people are requiring when vacationing. I will definitely book here again. OH yeah, place is pet friendly! Our 2 frenchies had a blast here!

Wonderful location. Good value. Cabin works well for groups. Although, the walls are a bit thin so if you’re traveling with small children as we did you may hear some noise between the bedrooms despite being on different floors. The cabin has a bit of wear and tear showing in the bathrooms and doors/walls/etc but I guess that’s to be expected with a popular listing is a popular destination. Our dog accompanied us and I’m so glad we brought her and that the property was dog friendly. We were impressed by the beauty and convenience of Waterman’s Landing. So beautiful!

Enjoyed our stay

Reviewed on 2020-11-04 by Esther
The location was excellent. Close to great hikes and many restaurant options. Kitchen was well stocked with pots/dishes/cups/etc. Liked that they had games a lot of books throughout the house. The downside was that the space is very dark regardless of time of day and needs deep cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Didn’t know the main door would be out of order for winter and had to climb the stairs to the back door to come and go—wasn’t ideal for one of us with a bum knee.

This location was beautiful and very clean!

Nice overall and good value

Reviewed on 2019-08-18 by Wit
Overall we were very happy with this house. It offers a nice location in a neighborhood about half a mile walk to the nearest (small) beach. You cannot see the lake but there is a nice hot tub on the back patio, though the patio looks into other people's property. The kitchen appliances are top of the line and the kitchen is fully renovated. The rest of the house is comfortable with decent beds, a couch that is comfortable to lie on but not really meant for sitting and a few not terribly comfortable chairs. The outside furniture, though plentiful to the point of being cluttered, is meant more for dining than lounging. There are two full baths, both have small rain shower heads which are nice, and the upstairs one is recently renovated. Overall this was a nice house and we were pretty happy with the value in comparison to other similar properties. With a few more "lounge like" seating options it would be very comfy although I think we would choose a property where the outdoor space was a little more private if we were to do it again.

The location is outstanding, 5 min from Kings’ Beach and 10 from Tahoe City. The common areas are a bit worn down (rug is stained and kitchen bench is chipped) but the location more than makes up for it. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need. The lighting could be better too (I know that’s a weird thing to say but other than lamps, there’s very little in the way of lighting which makes it a bit dull). We had lots of problems with the wifi and kept getting booted off without knowing which resulted in a very big phone bill. The instructions in the manual say not to reset the modem but when I told the realty they said that’s exactly what we should have done - clear, accurate instructions would be helpful. All in all, we loved Tahoe and loved the ample space available in this property.

It took me a while finding the correct cabin around the neighbor because I arrived at night. I tried to look for it, but I did not see any street number in the front of the cabin.
Response from Agate Bay Realty
Thank you for the review. FYI, we have the address on the bear proof trash container that is the closest to the street since the cabin is set back from the curb.

Loved It!

We loved our stay here! The location is perfect - we loved taking our dog to Patton Beach down the road and Gar Woods is one of our favorite restaurants on the lake. Love the lodge chic decor and the rooms are nice and spacious. We didn't need to use the room with the bunk bed but it was great to see that they were full sized beds. The hot tub on the deck in the back was our favorite thing about the place. We would spend the nights in there, gazing at the stars. We will definitely rent this cabin again in the future! Note to guests who book: you'll want to bring your own shampoo & conditioner as there was only a travel sized bottle of shampoo, towels for the hot tub (although you can use the washer/dryer to wash the bath towels there), and Safeway is a short drive away to get groceries if you plan to cook (grab condiments - there was very little in the cabinets - not even salt or pepper).

Thank you for the review. We only equip the property with bath towels equalling the total occupancy 8 plus extra spa towels to use. We can't leave spices and condiments in the home while bears are not hibernating (April to December) because they can smell these items in an unoccupied home and want to get inside.

Love It!

I am SO IN LOVE with this home. Everything from top to bottom, back to front, inside and out. The design was everything I have ever wanted in a home. I wanted to pick it up and take it with me back to San Diego. While staying I wanted to know everything... who designed it, who remodeled it, and who did the interior design?! The beds were cloud like and the lighting was perfection. It's hard to combine modern clean lines with a comfy cozy feel and they nailed it. Do your self a favor and stay here! I will be back for sure. Also, the ladies at the Agate Bay office were the sweetest, they were super helpful with hiking spots. Check out Eagle Rock. This was a quick hike with great views.

Comfortable Stay

We loved our stay! The house was comfortable and was what we expected. The location was convenient to everything that we needed but tucked away in the neighborhood enough to feel more like residents and less like visitors. Easy drive to Tahoe City, Kings Beach, etc. Favorite in house activities: sitting in the hot tub, looking through the pine trees up at the stars and starting the day with a cup of coffee by the fireplace. I would definitely rent this house again.

Great Trip

Excellent property for a fun family get-together

Reviewed on 2016-07-11 by albab946 of Sacramento, California
We had a wonderful experience at this property. We stayed for 2 nights and loved the space and the lay-out which allowed for plenty of privacy among two families. The kitchen was organized with everything we needed for cooking. We loved the decor throughout and the ample space to enjoy our time with our large group. We never felt crowded. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were updated and functional. Will definitely consider renting this property again in the future.

Not worth it at all

Reviewed on 2016-04-04 by Shellsfsu of Hayward, California
My husband, myself, our 2 young children, and parents stayed at the Oliver house for our week long summer vacation July 2015. While there, we were so incredibly disappointed in the Oliver house that we started a list of broken items and took photos to document our experience. A letter detailing our issues was mailed to Agate Bay Realty in August 2015 with absolutely no response to date (April 2016). Here were the issues in summary: The downstairs bathroom bathtub did not plug (and we had 2 toddlers to bathe), toilet did not flush properly and frequently backed up, and the toilet paper holder was broken and the TP had to sit on the floor. The washing machine was inoperable the entire week (although the repair man was out twice to fix it during our stay and they did have someone come a take our towels to the laundry mat) and the dryer had obviously been broken for a long time and would not operate over low heat. The doorknob to the second bedroom locked itself when the door swung open wide, resulting in a child getting lock in the room. Kitchen issues: the microwave display was burned out and impossible to use as a result, the stove top would randomly start blinking while cooking and shut itself off, the ice maker in the refrigerator leaked and would freeze itself inoperable. The ceiling light in the master bathroom was burned out and only the vanity light could be used. But, the vanity light has a built in timer which automatically shut off the light while we were in the shower. The side table lights in the master bedroom and living room were burned out. The master bedroom closet doors were jammed and would not open. The issues with the outside of the house actually scared us for safety reasons. We reported the issues to the Agate Bay office and they did send out a handy-man to fix some of them, but this was a third person who completed work during our stay. Here was the list of outside issues: there was a 2inch wide by 10inch long rotted hole in the front deck. The legs of the provided deck chairs fell right through it. The wood was obviously rotten and had not been replaced in years. Five spindles on the front deck rail were not secured at the bottom and swung freely from the railing (extremely dangerous as people lean on them when hanging out on the deck all the time). The metal grate in the front deck was warped and sticking up 1.5 inches out of the wood. Numerous nails on the deck stuck up over 1inch high and were rusted into place. On the back deck there was a shard of wood 2inches wide by 5 inches long that stuck up about 2inches right by the hot tub. The back deck also had 8 loose spindles that were not secured at the bottom and hung from the rail. The rail on this deck wobbled back and forth about 1.5 to 2 inches in both directions. Needless to say, after spending over $3500 to rent this cabin we were extremely disappointed and will not be going back. We tried to report these issues to the Agate Bay Realty office and we provided with a list of excuses. But, in our opinion, the issues with the deck would have been easily resolved with annual maintenance. As would have the issues with the interior.

We are sorry to hear the property did not meet your expectations. It seemed during and after your stay you wanted a rent credit and when we asked if we could have our handyman look at these issues you indicated you did not want to be disturbed and wanted a credit.

Tahoe pleasure

Reviewed on 2015-07-02 by Lisa A of Bracknell, United Kingdom
My husband and I stayed for a week in this beautiful house with our two kids, two dogs and one set of grandparents. We were thrilled with the quality of the property, the comfort, the facilities and the cleanliness. The property does not have a fence around it so be aware if taking your dog or children. We didn't find it an issue. We even had surprise snow half way through the week! We were able to walk down the hill to the lake beach (mainly stones) most mornings, and there is a store and bar/restaurant just there too. We also walked to the mini golf place a few times. Then the house formed a wonderful base to explore the rest of Tahoe, neighboring towns such as Carson and Reno. We would definitely return again as soon as we can.

Great Location

Reviewed on 2014-06-15 by deannabitker1 of Grass Valley, California
The home was clean (except first floor bathroom toilet) and well supplied with cooking and eating utensils. There are just a few things I would like to suggest. The home needs to have more towels available to the guest. Towels were also needed for the hot tub. Also, the home had absolutely no spices. Not even salt and pepper! It would have also been nice to have some lake supplies. A kayak, or two, a ice chest, some rafts? A few bicycles are always nice to have. The hot tub was really nice after a long day hiking! I would have liked a little more privacy though. Maybe, some lattice screens around the back deck could help. We thought the updates were very nice and the home was very comfortable. I have stayed in many vacation rentals and most (If not all) of the suggestions that I have made were available and made our vacation so much fun and relaxing! I think that if these suggestions are offered this vacation rental will be a big FIVE STARS! So, I'm looking forward to see what happens. I would definitely rent this home again if the home was upgraded with these suggestions.
Manager response on 2014-06-24 - Response from Agate Bay Realty
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately in the summer we can't keep extra spices and food stables in the house because when the house is unoccupied, bears can smell them and want to get in. As for the rafts, kayaks, etc. most owners no longer want to provide those facilities for liability reasons (welcome to California). Please keep us in mind for the future.

Home away From Home

Reviewed on 2014-03-10 by A FlipKey verified reviewer of San Francisco
It's hard to find a Vacation rental that doesn't scream "vacation rental" - if you know what I mean. So when I came across Oliver house I knew that was the home for us. From the furnishings, to the dinner plates, this home felt like a home we would have created ourselves. It was recently remodeled to a tasteful and understated modern decor - with just the right touches of organic. It's open and spacious and gets tons of natural light. To add to its greatness, it is a pet-friendly home, so we could bring our giant Newfoundland! He also felt right at home and loved sitting out on the snowed-on deck facing the street and watching the passers-by.The only issue involved the gas fireplace which resulted in a day of cold (we rented during ski season) but the rental property management company was quick to send someone out to fix it and the house soon warmed up again. One improvement would be to provide a place to hang our wet jackets/hats/etc rather than having to set them on the bench by the door where we sit to put on our boots, since the coat closet is locked and solely used by the owners. Aside from this, we couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for a week.We look forward to staying here again - maybe even trying it during warmer months so we can swim in the nearby lake!

The house was nice and very roomy. It had all of the cooking equipment that ended. Only thing I did not like was the second sick in the upstairs bathroom the water did not work. There was a lot of spider webs in the livingroom walls. The confuter in the master room was ripped and worn out. Over all great location and perfect for our party of 8ppl.

We just spent a wonderful week in Oliver at Lake Tahoe. The house is beautifully remodeled and equipped with everything we needed - in a style we would use for our own home. Our kids and our dog loved the place, enjoyed the beach close by and we all had lots of fun on and at the water. We hope to be able to come back. Many thanks for offering such a nice house to families with dogs.

Check in was quick and easy! This is a gorgeous, contemporary style house with an updated kitchen and top-of-the-line bathrooms. Kitchen is well-stocked with a full set of new cookware and dinnerware. Luxuriously soft bath towels, sparkling clean spa, BBQ, big flat screen TV with cable and seating for everyone and fantastic views of the surrounding trees. A very quite and serene area. Most importantly, this is a pet-friendly house that was so clean that it didn't look like any pets had even been there! We can't wait to rent this home again!
