Sunnyside Cottage is the perfect "Little Tahoe Cabin". This quintessential Tahoe Rental will set the tone for your family's Tahoe vacation as soon as you enter.

    Awesome Location with Great Potential

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The property was as described and the location was perfect. A very quiet neighborhood with a very comfortable and picturesque outdoor sitting area. The Cabin was not large but met all our needs. There are a few items that could be attended to to improve this property and bring it up to a 4 star rating. The beds, upstairs loft and downstairs queen mattresses and pillows are well worn. The general cleanliness was lacking, needing a thorough cleaning. The stove top and oven were not properly cleaned(i.e. grease platters). The BBQ outside was filthy, overflowing drip tray and dirty grill. There were only two bath towels, one hand towel and two wash clothes. Not enough for a place that sleeps 8. Several dishes were not properly cleaned. There was no sponge in kitchen. An easy walk to Fire Sign for breakfast and dinner at Sunnyside Lodge is highly recommended. Outdoor patio for morning coffee, afternoon drinks or a soak in the hot tub was awesome and these features is what may just bring us back!

    Great Stay - Misleading Costs

    Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The property itself was a great place to stay and convenient location to see the entire lake. Bedrooms were nice and hot tub was fantastic. Only downside were the additional/"hidden" fees above and beyond the stated nightly price. Cleaning fee is common but a bit excessive ($175) given minimal day stay and size of cottage. In particular the $126 VRBO service fee and $59 damage waiver were unexpected and IMO unnecessary. More transparency upfront on the listing is recommended that includes all costs. Don't forget the high taxes tacked on too.

    Charming, Conveniently Located Cottage

    This beautifully decorated, cozy cottage is lovely for a small, intimate group. The kitchen is well-appointed, and the beds are very comfortable. As other reviews have mentioned, the seating in the living room could be cozier and better lit for reading. I would also request that dish towels be available instead of having to use paper towels for everything, and a bath mat in the bathroom as the shower tends to spray quite a bit onto the floor.

    Sunnyside cabin

    So amazing Ps two things.... there is a mouse downstairs... found some droppings in kitchen but then our dog freaked out chasing it one night. Was kind of hilarious when we realized what it was. Also the can opener in the utensils drawer is worn out Otherwise amazing and thx for letting us stay another day Ps if you'd stock the house with firewood we'd totally pay for the service next time.

    Sunnyside cottage

    First of all, we LOVE this cabin and rented it for the second time. Disappointed that in the year we've been gone, lights in the living room, bathroom upstairs and in the fridge still are broken. Also, with Covid, it should've been highlighted more that I would half to go buy salt, pepper, oil, spices, dishwashing soap AND laundry detergent. This resulted in multiple shopping trips. And when you cannot check in until 4:00 and have to leave at 10:00am and YOU have to strip beds, do dishes and empty trash. That is 6 hours I am paying for that I don't get to enjoy and yet I am cleaning more than I would at a hotel! For this reason I am giving the COMPANY 3 stars.
