The house was very nice and roomy. There was quite a bit of consruction going on in the neighborhood, which was a bit noisy. I didn't care for the open area over the door, which conected the master bedroom to the living room and kitchen. Not a good design. There should also be a screen door put on the master bedroom balcony door for air circulation. All in all a nice place.

This was by far the best house we have stayed in. It was exactly like the pictures and what I loved the most was the clean, uncluttered look and feel. We had 4 little kids around and I didn't feel like they had to stay away from anything.(except we blocked off the stairs going down from the living area!)The master shower was by far the thing I looked forward to the most. Spacious ad gorgeous. The kitchen was a cooks dream. We had a large BBQ with at least 35 people and there was plenty of room. We played ganes every night on the huge dining room table and took early morning walks on the golf course path right across the street. Will definitely rent this again!

Overall - great service.Easy rental procedure. The home was large and clean. Location was not great, as you can hear street/traffic noise from the master bedroom. Other issues: Heating system,house was either hot or cold.Lots of complaints. Master bedroom lacked privacy due to large opening in wall over bedroom door. Can hear all living room and kitchen noise. Nice big kitchen missing some basics (Large roasting pans, rolling pin, baking soda or powder) and very disorganized shelves making it hard to find what you need to cook. Some dishes and pans were found wet in the cupboards. Living room was nice and big but did not have adequate seating for more that 5 comfortably. We had 7 in our group and 4 visitors. An assortment of family board games would have been nice, we assumed they would have them there and didn't bring any. Nice big garage that can fit a large vehicle was a plus with all the snow. -Mary

We spent Thanksgiving in this house along with two other families. It is a gorgeous place. It is spacious and well laid out. Compared to other places we've stayed in Tahoe in the past 10 years or so, this is definitely one of the best. We had adults and kids and the place worked out really well for us. The kids played outside in the snow and built a snow man. The bath tub in the master bedroom was large enough to hold 4 kids to take a bath together. Everyone had a great time. We'll sure come back if we can get the group together again.

The Tahoe Classic home was beautiful. The location was convenient, no slippery driveway. The layout of the house worked great for our extended family of nine. There were two problems we had with the place. First, the kitchen was horribly equipped. We had to scramble to make do to get a meal on the table. We do like to cook and so our needs may be unusual. The other problem was the heater. We could not figure out how to use it. We cooked most of the time. We would turn the thermostat to 68, but the heat kept running, sometimes to 85! So we had to keep turning it off and on. We asked a maintenance guy if there was a trick, but he didn't know. Better to be hot than cold though. I think it would be nice if there were more instructions on how things worked like the furnace and the fireplace. We did have a great time and would stay here again. I will just bring my own cooking utensils!
Thank you for your review. Since reading your review the owner is preparing to add several additional kitchen items. The kitchen should soon be well supplied with everything you might need to prepare meals. There is a binder in all of our vacation homes with house instructions. Included in the binder are instructions for the thermostats. We will be sure to clarify the operation of the thermostats for our future guests. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. We will look forward to your next visit.

The home was lovely and we had a fine time. Our only suggestion is to put glass in the open window (or fill the space in with drywall) between the master bedroom and the kitchen, having an open window affords no privacy and one can hear everything going on in the kitchen therefore waking up the guests, so it didn't make sense to us why there was this opening. Thanks for great time.
Thank you for your review. Since reading your review this owner is preparing to have a glass window installed in the custom designed opening above the master bedroom door which will make the room completely private. We appreciate your suggestion. Thanks again.

This home is wonderful, very well equipped with kitchen items. Very spacious, it could use a carpet cleaning, but otherwise very well kept. Yes the sound does travel in the home, especially downstairs, but worth the stay.

We enjoyed our stay at this 4 bedroom house in Tahoe Donner. The kitchen and great room living space was our favorite part of the house. The kitchen equipment and silverware were well stocked and the outside grill and patio were great for entertaining at our family reunion. This home is on a busy street and the street noise in the master bedroom can be very annoying, especially when trying to "sleep in" on vacation. The carpets need a good cleaning and two of the downstairs bedrooms need lamps for reading.

The home was well suited to our family of adults. The living room, dining area and kitchen area lends itself well to a large group. Bunk beds in one room would be better suited to children but we made it work. My one disappointment was the cleanliness. The carpets were heavily stained throughout the house, a closet door was off its hinges, and garbage was left in the garage. I think whoever inspects the properties before renters come in should be more attentive to these issues. Also I have never been in a rental where so much food was left in the cabimets and refigerator.
Thank you for your review! The carpets receive high traffic during a peak season however regular carpet cleanings are scheduled. After your departure the carpets were cleaned and look very nice. The closet door was an oversight and we do thank you for bringing this to our attention. Dried goods may be left in the cupboards but expiration dates are checked regularly. Food left in the refrigerator is thrown away after each reservation, especially dairy products. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. We will be sure to check the refrigerator. We are glad that you enjoyed the home. Pullen Rental Group,

There was tons of room, for the kids to run around and for the adults to relax. Great open ktichen/family room/eating area. Very easy to get to and easy to get to Tahoe Donner ski area as well as sledding area. Only comppainst would be that the master bedrom windows seemed thin as we could hear every car that went by. We used a baby gate for the stairs and the gate had a hard time staying up due to the unique railing design. Other than that everything was great.

Everything good. Parking space is enough, room is clean and nice each level have seperate gas fireplace. but hot water is not enough. After a lot snow, it is hard to find house number on night time. So Traveler should be careful to find house number road is narrow.

- great location - extremely spacious - great for groups - well appointed - bathrooms were well stocked - could use some hangers and a few more wine glasses in the kitchen
Reviewed by A FlipKey verified reviewer for their stay on 2011-08-17
The kitchen was woefully understocked with few pots/pans (old) and a mishmash of only 3 wine glasses. Towels were old, carpet showed serious wear. Most importantly, there were no blinds in the master bedroom window/door and room filled with light early in the morning. Lastly, couch in living room is terribly uncomfortable. Spending some money on some minor upgrades would greatly improve the user experience.

Had a family reunion with ~50 people from out of town - rented 3 houses from Pullen, all very nice. This one was great for a large get together - we had a lot of people in the living room and it didn't feel crowded. Kitchen was also great.

The cabin rental was clean and well stocked with towels, etc - along with a lovely welcoming gift basket. We were all in town for a family wedding just down the road and the cabin was the perfect location. In fact, all the bridesmaids got their hair done in the well-lit master bathroom on the day of the wedding. The large kitchen and living room allowed us to all eat and socialize while finalizing wedding details. It was a great rental for our family. We loved it. The kids loved the "secret" room in the downstairs bedroom closet - it became their clubhouse. We would highly recommend this cabin to for a large family gathering. Nothing fancy - but perfect for us.

The house if very nice and spacious. But like mentioned before in another review, this house needs a few items. The kitchen items such as knives and pans are extremely old and falling apart. A family member burned herself using a frying pan with a poor handle that was loose. The towels are extremely old and there were not that many extra blankets. The couch is pretty uncomfortable and the tv's were pretty small. The amount of movies were extremely limited to a collection I would find amazed as to who would watch them. Again, all these upgrades could easily be fixed. If the time and effort was made, the house would be greatly improved.

My family and I stayed at the Tahoe Classic earlier this month. While the actual home and location are very nice, the upkeep on the home and amenities was lacking. We were welcomed with a nice gift basket, but unfortunately the rest of our trip was colored by the poor oversight of the property by Pullen Rental Group. The outdoor grill was filthy and looked like no one had touched it in a long time. Many of the kitchen pans were corroded and one skillet had the handle taped on and was ready to fall off. There were also stains on one set of sheets and no mattress covers on any of the beds. There was only one wash cloth in the entire house. There were also cobwebs in the bedrooms. Considering the $225 cleaning fee, I expected a much better maintained home. Pullen Rental did offer to send over a cleaning crew and a maintenance person to look at the grill, but we declined this offer as we were already unpacked and did not want any intrusions nor to be further inconvenienced on our vacation. Our first day was spent getting supplies such as a smokey joe as we had planned to do a lot of grilling. Julie at Pullen did buy more wash cloths and one skillet that I picked up at the rental office. I was very disappointed in her customer service as she did not empathize with, nor validate our legitimate complaints, and went so far to state that her bread pans looked like the ones in the home. When I first spoke to her I wanted to be sure the owners were made aware of our dissatisfaction, and I was led to believe that they would be informed. However, she has not confirmed this and has not had the courtesy to return my phone calls. I am very sorry if the owners will be blindsided by my review. We have stayed in Vrbo properties numerous times and have always had great customer service.

We stayed for 3 ninghts and had an amazing time there! We were stunned when we first got in the house. The kids were so excited, screaming and running around the house. House was huge, comfortabley fitting all 12 of us. I love the modern kitchen, I was able to cook the same way as at home. By the way, Wifi was not working, big kids were kinda frustrated not being able to use their Ipad or computer. Not only was it barely useable, we were using the next door neighbor's wifi. Slow drain in downstairs bedroom, everything else was great. We loved this house, planning to come back next winter.

Very great service, the staff were very nice to deal with. I first booked a property that was on renovation and finding another property was not a hassle because the staff (Rene) was very helpful. The house itself was clean, very well kept with a large kitchen which was perfect for our group who all wanted to be either in the kitchen or dining table. The kids had a blast running in and around the house, then enjoyed the big tub for a warm bath in the evenings. Great experience! Will definitely be looking at your properties the next time around.

The house is beautiful and located near the lodge. All of the bedrooms are nicely furnished. The decks are large and very pleasant. My only complaint is that the kitchen needs some new quality cooking pots and pans. Also, more matching drinking glasses would be helpful. I ended up buying paper cups, and asking a family member to bring up a few pots for cooking and place mats for the table.

Due conflicts in our schedules, we only had a small window of opportunity take a week long vacation...and arrangements had to be made overnight if we wanted take advantage of the full week. I searched on Flip Key for a rental, but could not make on-line reservations due to the extremely short notice. I noticed that one of the properties was managed by the Pullen Rental Group. I called spoke to Renee who quickly assessed what I was looking for and sent me quotes for 3 different properties. We decided to go with the Tahoe Classic which was the perfect size and well priced. All transaction were completed electronically within a few minutes. The Following day we started our vacation in a beautiful, clean and comfortable home. The check in and check out procedures were easy to follow and Renee checked in via e-mail to make sure that everything was going well. Upon arrival, there was a hospitality basket waiting for us with a welcome note. We loved the big spacious kitchen and living room area which are perfectly designed for socializing. The master bedroom and bathroom were spacious. My husband and I liked the fact that it was separate from the ground floor bedrooms (and the kids). We only had a party of five, but the house easily sleeps 11 people. The downstairs floor had 3 bedrooms-- 2 with queen beds and on with a set of bunk beds and pullout couch. The extra capacity washer and dryer were very convenient. The location was perfect for our needs. The resort golf course where my son and husband played golf was less than a mile away, as well as the pool and recreation center. We also took advantage of several of the resort's activities including horseback riding and biking. I would highly recommend not only this beautiful facility but the services received by the Pullen Rental Group.

We've just came back from Tahoe Donner a couple days ago and would like to thank your staff (especially alesia) for providing us with your best customer service and a great vacation rental! Wonderful house with plenty of rooms that allowed the kids to play without disturbing parents. Big kitchen and the living room were a hit when it was time to get everyone together around the huge table or to watch TV. The place was spacious, clean and very accommodating. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We could find everything in there including cooking oil, spices, coffee, tea, crackers, variety of pans and everything else we needed. I liked the area the house was located at. Despite the lack of snow this winter, we found the huge golf area which is just across the road, where our children and ourselves were able to find a lot of snow to play, slide, and have fun. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and comforting. The owners or the agency were very nice to leave some extra towels, linens, and blankets. The only thing that we wished to be remodeled was a TV. It was kind of old and small TV in both living rooms, not plasma. Other than that, the unity had everything that we needed to enjoy our stay. Thanks again to Pullen Realty Group and we'll definitely rent from them again in the future.

Overall we had a nice stay at the house and it worked very well for our group of 8. Here are a few things the owner should consider to improve the experience: - only one of the rooms has dressers and lamps, so there are not places to put clothes and lighting options are not great - the master bed is up against a large window, which makes it quite a bit colder at night and the road noise is more pronounced. That room also needs more window coverings. There is a lot of light that comes in from the living room and the outside. So not a great room for sharing with children that need a dark place to sleep. - the Tv's are ancient. There's really no excuse for not upgrading the Tv's. It would be an easy, cheap upgrade that people would value. - the master shower is in an enormous, cavernous room that does not heat up, so you feel cold when you shower.
