This comfortable home is situated on a land locked lagoon in the Tahoe Keys marina complex, which is one of the most desirable locations here in South Lake Tahoe. The property is nicely furnished. It boasts a great deck, a nice fenced backyard with patio furniture, as well as it's own private hot tub. **NO INTERNET ACCESS**
We really enjoyed the house on Venice. The hot tub, the large back yard. Our kids fun-fished in the canal. One thing I failed to mention when returning the key was the danger of the stairway railings. They are both loose.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?
Great location, adequate lodging

We loved the location and view and outdoor space. Inside was adequate--comfortable for my family of 4 and 93 year old grandma. The house needs a good cleaning beyond the cleaning crew that changes the sheets. Since this was a 2 week rental, I spent time cleaning cabinets, bedding, walls, webs as all of this would have made me crazy for the long stay. The kids loved the location for easy access to bike trails. My grandma managed well staying down stairs--no stairs other than 3 at the front door. Only master bedroom is upstairs. Kitchen had everything you should need.

This rental home has such a beautiful view! It's amazing. Very quiet and tranquil. On the other hand, there is no door to the upstairs bedroom and you can hear everything going on downstairs. Also, out of the 5 beds only one was comfortable. I woke up with aches and pains because the bed I slept in was so hard.

Overall we had another very good experience with the staff at McKinney & Assoc. but have to say not so good with the house rental this time.
We found this house to be adequate but not sure if we'd ever rent again. Overall we found the house was clean (bedrooms, bathrooms & kitchen) of which are cleaned by the hired company. For a house listed to occupy 8 people there is very limited closet (hangers) and/or dresser space. The cobwebs with the nats listed in an earlier review are still in many ceiling corners. The banister and railing going to the upstairs bedroom is very unstable and unsafe. The back of the kitchen chairs need a good cleaning...very sticky and nasty. It would have been nice to have a printout of information/instructions such as garbage day, how to work the various appliances, (hot tub, TV, DVD player, etc.) as we've had in the other house we've rented a few times. We found the downstairs bath window lock not very lockable as well has the upstairs window over the bath to not lock at all. Need to fix these items if renters can be changed for not locking all doors and windows as stated in the contract.
On the positive side it was very nice/peaceful sitting in the backyard mornings and evenings. It was fenced which was a great place for the dogs to run and play.

First this is the second time I have rented from C B McKinney and they are a pleasure to work with. Simple, easy and quick. The houses are well stocked with soaps, towels and just about anything you would need.
This house is located in Tahoe Keys and the view from the kitchen which faces the backyard is fantastic. So peaceful to look out at the view each morning as you have your breakfast. I have no complaints at all regarding this house. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked,and location great. The backyard is fenced which was a great place for the dog and my grandkids to play.
The house being in Tahoe Keys you have access to both the outdoor and indoor pool for a daily or weekly fee.

Generally speaking the rental was clean with the exception of cobwebs filled with nats. I thought the best part of the rental was the backyard and the sunny eating area. It was apparent that the house was used by the owners but there was entirely too, too much "stuff" everywhere to be completely comfortable. The "stuff" did not lend itself to a cozy Tahoe rental. We would not recommend it to friends.

Fun and easy

The house was fully equipted and easy. It was on the worn side and no bedroom door for the upstairs room, which was noisy. Location good and size good.

Tolerable, but wouldn't rent again.

The house was a bit of a let down. It was not in very good condition and it left much to be desired in appeal. It was functional, but it didn't go much beyond that. The back yard has a lovely view, but the deck and table are falling apart. In fact, I had to take a screwdriver out and tighten up the table just so it would stay together while we sat on it. There is definitely repair and updating to be done around that home. Read more
Response from CB - Mckinney & Associates - 07/18/2010
I would like to thank this guest for the review on this Tahoe Keys vacation home at 2136 Venice Drive. This is certainly the high standard that we are looking to achieve for our guests.
Following the guests response, the home was thoroughly deep cleaned by the new cleaning company, the damaged table was repaired, and the owner was notified of the complaint for any further corrections.
I do encourage this valued guest to contact me or my staff in the future for their next trip to South Lake Tahoe so that we can take care of them personally. In the interest of fairness, I would like to offer them an additional $40 discount off their next stay.
Everything dogs and people need to enjoy South Lake Tahoe

Tha place was located in a great neighborhood that was overall pretty quiet except for the taxis running on weekend nights. The view off the master bedroom balcony is beautiful as well as from the deck. The bedrooms are very large and roomy and the house has everything you need. Walking to the marina takes only a few minutes and leads right to some nice trails and right out to the lake. My little Beagle had the best time hiking the trails, swimming in the river and lake, playing with all of the other dogs that were there and relaxing in the spacious backyard. The house could have been a bit more detail cleaned but overall it was clean and inviting. We had a great time and saved the address so we can go back to the same house.
