The house was adequate for our needs. Enough bedrooms for our group of 9. The main bedrooms were nicely fitted but the 2 bedrooms in the basement could only be described as adequate. The bedrooms downstairs ould have benefited from bedside lamps. The only light was a ceiling light and a small desk lamp in one of the rooms. So the room was very dark. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking, however we had to rummage around to find the coffee maker and toaster. It could have benefited from a thorough cleaning. The pantry had crumbs on the shelves. And this was a bit disappointing considering that a cleaning fee of $275 was charged.
The living room was huge with a great sofa (enough room for most of us)for watching TV. The dining area has a long rectangular table and adequate seating (bench style)but again could have benefited from a thorough cleaning. Feel that the cleaners may only attend to the "big" items and not paying attention to the smaller details or those areas that are not visible (ie the pantry shelves). Closets would have benefited from hangers as we were in Tahoe for a wedding and needed to hang up our dresses and suits.
Perfect house for a large group. Super clean and Fully stocked.

This house was the perfect size for my family vacation. Total of 3 families and there was plenty of room to make us not feel crowded. Upstairs had a large living room and dining room table to fit all 12 members of our group. And downstairs there is another living room where the kids can play and hang out all nite. The house is stocked with all types of things you need like garbage bags, condiments, lighter fluid, paper towel, shampoo and conditioner, and a lot more things you need for your stay.
And another good thing is they gave me an early check in and late check out.
My only gripe is the policy of the rec center. They only allow 4 guests per card and the house only has 2 cards. So that's a total of 8 ppl. But the the Jade house fits 12. So if you were to use the rec center, which has pools, 4 members of your party would be left out and that's no fun. Now it's not the Pollen groups fault for the policy, but when I booked the house, it was under the impression that all members of my group would be allowed access. Because one of the main reasons for booking this place was to use the rec center and its pool. So I had to change plans and spend the day at the West End beach in Donner lake. The beach was nice but the water was too cold for the kids to swim in and they were very disappointed. The one thing they looked foward to for this trip was to go swimming and they never got a chance.
