Great private space with vaulted ceilings, natural gas burning heat stove, queen size pullout, flat panel satellite TV, WiFi, with full bath and kitchen. Just a 15 minute drive to all the North Shore's major resorts and a mere 300 yds to National Forest Trails! Close to the lake!

The space

This is a super cozy studio apt. for two! The thermostatic controlled Jotul natural gas burning stove provides warmth throughout the space. The new plush micro suede sofa provides a great place to hang out during the day and converts to a queen size bed complete with feather bed duvet for sleeping. The flat panel TV is supported by a full array of cable channels.

There's a fully functional kitchen with plenty of counter and cabinet space, a large sink, a gas range and oven, and a full size refrigerator. Directly off the kitchen is a fully functional bathroom with sink, shower and toilet. The space is light and airy with casement windows, forested views and a vaulted ceiling with wood truss-beams.

Great area! Amazing host and communication. Easy to enter and exit. Our only issue was cleanliness which the host apologized for stating he didn’t live in the area and that no one has ever had an issue with the cleaning service company. Which I can believe. He mentioned he would make sure cleaning is done for future guests. I really hope so! We had to buy sheets blankets and pillows because of details I will leave out. Host is open to feedback. He said this is the first time the cleaning situation has ever happened but it needs to be noted here just in case it happens again. I’d recommend staying here.

Response from Joe:
When Nikki checked into my studio apartment, she messaged that "everything was great". Her polite and detailed complaints on the cleanliness only came messaged just prior to her departure. There was zero communication in between. I always take care to make sure that the condition of my space is "top notch" and ready to go prior to every guest arrival, and checking with the person that does my pre and post stay inspections, I was assured that this was the case before Nikki's stay. I've got nothing but positive reviews in the past and so this came as a complete surprise! While I appreciate getting valuable feedback, if the condition was truly as she detailed, I would have loved to get it shortly after her arrival, so I could have someone verify and take appropriate action if necessary.

Joe was an amazing host with very prompt communication! The studio is just as described and very romantic. The location is very central to many parts of the lake, while still being remote! We would recommend this to anyone!

Joe's flat was nice. It was quaint and a great place to have as a home base. I ran around Lake Tahoe so I didn't use the condo very much but it's a great value for LT. Everything was easy and no problems. Thanks again!

The studio was great! The place was clean, had everything you would need, and was nearby Carnelian Bay and Tahoe City.

The space was great for our short stay. They had good coffee in house and a functional kitchen space to work with, so I was able to impress my date:) It was smaller than I had envisioned but in all everything was perfect. Joe made sure I had clear instructions on getting in and I would definitely stay again

Joe's Place is the perfect get-a-way for an adventurous couple or a traveling single. Stayed here and loved it so much came back days later with my young son to explore the area by day and finish up our day with a sunset mountain bike ride. Joe was a perfect host with excellent communication. While staying, my son and I had the pleasure of meeting him and his kids. In just a few minutes of chatting with Joe, he felt like an old friend. For your larger family, be sure to inquire about renting his larger home. You won't be disappointed! Joe, thanks again for another memorable stay. :)
