Review by Diane
We couldn't have been happier with the downtown penthouse! It was spacious and beautiful and so centrally located. Close to everything Lake, casinos, restaurants, shops, etc. Everything within walking distance. We loved it so much already booked for our family vacation in Tahoe for next year!

Great location!!

Review by Shari A.
We were here for our sons wedding. Great location to Edgewood golf course, other hotels, and nightlife. It did have some smells from the restaurant below, road noise, and rooms aren't very dark for sleeping in past 7. It was accommodating, plenty of space, bathrooms and accessible to all of our guest staying in other hotels. It was a perfect meeting spot for all the wedding activities... So spacious that I could have held a small rehearsal dinner if I had known how great it was! We used Riva Grill for the rehearsal dinner and the food was outstanding. Buckingham Properties allowed me to send flowers to their office for the Rehearsal Dinner and that was on less thing I had to worry about. Thanks!!!!!

Perfect Location

Review by Jim
You can't get a better location. Restaurants, Gondola and Casino all just steps away. The Penthouse is spacious, you are not on top of each other like a small ski condo, a plus when you have kids. Coming back again for sure. The one con is that you can smell the restaurant from below but it is not bad and mostly near the elevator.

Family Ski Vacation in Lake Tahoe. Our Christmas gift to each other.

Review by Piper Girl
Perfect location. Beautiful place. Easy access to Gondola, ski rentals, grocery store, restaurants, shops, bars, lake, casino's and did I mention the Nestle store (yummy); you name it we had it in front of us.There were 7 of us and plenty of room for all. Private elevator, private bathroom for each bedroom plus bonus bathroom, hot tub was awesome, grilling chicken in the snow was interesting, fireplace was cozy. We cooked some and went out some. Didn't need to rent a car. Called Uber to take us to Emerald Bay (pricey). The living room heating system was an issue; it only liked 62 but the bedrooms worked fine so we left the bedroom doors open and it helped warm the house. Nice there are games to play and books to read too. Plenty of TV's and movie selections. The people in Heavenly (Lake Tahoe) are so warm and friendly. Life is so busy everyday that having our grown kids and their family's stay in the same home with us gave all of us quality family time together. We had a wonderful family vacation and plan on a return visit.

Tahoe ski trip

Review by Michele
We had a little trouble getting the heating system temperature to a comfortable amount. Directions a little confusing on controller. A few things need a little care(i.e. Lock in door loose, leather chair coming loose). We had stayed here before and love the location and GREAT comfortable beds. Kitchen is very well stocked! Love that u leave some items for others to use! Very quiet. You do not hear the businesses that surround it.

Wonderful getaway with friends, right in the middle of it all!

Review by Jamey B
We have stayed at this location twice in the last few years. This time, it was amazingly easy to get in with the new check-in procedure. This property is right in the middle of it all, no need to drive anywhere! When we stay here, we don't even need a car.

Review by TJ
An incredibly beautiful and spacious house, located right in the middle of S Lake Tahoe! We had a family reunion, and the location make it accessible for lots of activities - fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and even a little gambling! The whole family enjoyed every minute! Hope to do it again next year!

For a group this rental is perfect!!!

Review by Erin Burgener
Our experience visiting Lake Tahoe was so great and this rental was the icing on the cake!!! It was the perfect location...perfect distance to all the casino/tourist activity. The home is incredibly beautiful and it had all the amenities we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were a great size. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Review by Bagtag
We were blown away by the looks and feel of this premier property. Everything inside was great. finding how to get in and finding the appropriate parking areas was not easy or obvious. Getting the code to work in the elevator was horrible. It took us 20 trys each time we used the elevator to get the code to actually work. we finally took to using the key to the locked staircase. We will use this property again as a base for a future family reunion.

Sensational accomodation

Review by Nolan
This accomodation was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay in this venue. We had a few problems with the managers Buckingham Properties. After 18 hours of travel to arrive, all the codes that were provided were incorrect and we were stuck outside the apartment for 2 hours. We could not raise Buckingham properties but managed to luckily contact the owner who kindly attended and let us in. We then went to access the internet and again the access code provided by managers was incorrect. We got absolutely no apology or explanation whatsoever. The owner was very good to deal with and the property itself was excellent. Location was second to none, right in the heart of everything. Loved the hot tub. Buckingham did respond to our request to have this serviced on the same day which was a positive for them.

This will avoid all trouble that we had with contacting your group. We thank you so much for this tip and hope to hear from you soon! - Buckingham Staff

Perfect location, gorgeous home

Review by CJ
We had a lovely vacation and the penthouse is so vast yet cozy that each of the three couples had some nice private spaces in addition to being able to gather in splendor in the living areas for dinners, games, reading and relaxing. Perfect location, right in the heart of SLT, steps to the gondola and walking distance to shopping, casinos -- everything. Nice, comfortable, big beds, rustic yet elegant furnishings, airy interior. The only negatives were the elevator, which is the only way into the fourth-floor apartment and the entrance outside the Stateline Brewery is used by diners' children as a plaything. The elevator doesn't move without a code but the bells ring in the apartment all hours of the day and night when the buttons are pushed. We went down and chased away the kids a number of times but I think a sign on the outside that it is for access to private quarters only would cut down on the nuisance. The elevator broke down twice during our week there (probably from button-pushing overload), including once when all six of us were out skiing and it took more than an hour to get someone to come and let us in through the ground-floor emergency exit. The other time it broke down was on Sunday night of MLK weekend, and I was locked out for 40 minutes and unable to call to the apartment so someone could let me in downstairs because the cell phone network gets "congested" on weekend nights and I couldn't ring through. And while the stocks of dishes and glassware and cookware are great (we are a group of foodies and enjoy cooking for ourselves) the owners need to buy a decent cutting board and knives. There was also no vegetable peeler -- we bought one and left it. Suspect that might have been accidentally discarded by previous guests -- I know we've done that at home! But overall really great place and fabulous week's vacation. We will definitely return.

We will return!

Review by Katie
We really enjoyed our stay in this Penthouse Condo. It is the perfect location. This is a great space for family and friends to come together. The house was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Being steps from restraunts, shops, and Heavenly made it so easy with having small children. We never had to get in the car. I would recommend this place again and again.

Off the Hook!!

Review by ShoreFun/No Merci
The Penthouse is by far the best accommodations in South Shore. Walking distance to Heavenly's Godola, shopping and the casinos. We especially enjoyed celebrating New Years Eve here because we could watch from the balcony all the craziness on the main road without having to be in the middle of it. We also loved celebrating East Coast New years Eve at Heavenly's celebration at the Gondola area. The ball drop was phenomenal, the band and entertainment top notch and the fireworks were one of the most amazing shows we've seen in a very long time. The penthouse is very spacious and easily accommodated our two families. The only negative I heard from the group was the size of the bedroom flatscreen Tv's. They're quite small in comparison to the lavishness of the accommodations. On a scale of 10, we all gave it a 9.9!!!

Has it all!!

Review by Lisa
We loved the property. All bedrooms are big and bathrooms too. We loved the kitchen and used the great room a lot. We had 4 couples for a birthday getaway weekend and it was perfect. Walked to slopes, gondola, casinos and shopping. The jacuzzi was fun for us as well. You can't go wrong with this place.

Perfect Location - if you want to be "in the mix"

Review by Noah
Very nice place with lots of room and a perfect location to be in the middle of the action of South Lake. Just steps away from the casinos and just upstairs from the Heavenly Village and Food/Drink spots. Just be aware that you are truly "in the middle of it all". If you are looking for a quite, private, romantic getaway in Tahoe - this is not for you. If you are looking for someone very nice to stay with a few friends together and be able to walk to casinos, concerts (at Harveys), local eateries and bars/'s a perfect spot. Only removal of one star for the sort of odd entrance system. Elevator opens right into the unit - that part is fine, but it's also the service elevator to the building, including the Brewery downstairs, so the elevator get s hot and has a scent of stale beer. A touch of that scent also finds its way into the place, but nothing unbearable, or that a spritz of Febreeze can't solve. You also get a little hustle and bustle noise and food smells from Stateline Brewery, but I rather enjoy that part. Overall, thought it was a terrific set up and fun place to stay with friends. Also, the kitchen could be a little larger considering the size of the place and since there is a full dining table, it would make it easier to cook and actually use it. But with all the nearby food choices... maybe that's not very important to most people.

Great time in South Lake Tahoe

Review by Jim M
The Condo is in in a great location. Easy to get to the action by foot. It is very comfortable and spacious. I do say the matresses are very soft. I found my self checking each bed to find the firmest one. Parking was a little hassle even thought we had parking passes I ended up with two parking tickets overnight. It is not easy to find the entrance door the first time you arrive but after you know where you're going super convenient. I not happy about how long it takes Buckingham to return deposit.

Penthouse was great!

Review by Jen Joe
Everything about the penthouse as far as staying there was great. I only have a few complaints and that would be with the maintenance/support staff of Buckingham Properties. Our internet never worked the entire time we were there. I called about it multiple times and never got someone to fix it. Also, we called the second of 4 days we were there about the air conditioner not working anymore because the battery needed to be changed in the thermostat. Called multiple times, and nobody ever came to fix it. Loved the location and all other things besides that!

Manager Response:
Hi Jen, We are glad you enjoyed your stay in one of our wonderful Lake Tahoe Vacation homes. An associate from the office had followed up with you twice regarding the internet. The internet was an issue with the communication company Charter and needed a professional technician to troubleshoot. As internet is so important these days, we do apologize for the lack connection during your stay. Out of 100 homes, we have 1 with air conditioning. In Lake Tahoe, the pleasant year round temperatures provide the prefect setting to ditch the AC unit. There was no indication of an air conditioning unit in any descriptions that can be found. Please feel free to contact Buckingham Properties directly for any questions. Thank you once again as one of our valued customers!

Perfect location & amenities

Review by D.Levine
The downtown penthouse(Hv24) is in an ultra-convenient location, that was perfect for our 3 night stay.(2 adults, 3 teenagers). Just steps away from the Heavenly gondola,equipment rental, restaurants and casinos, there was no need for a rental car, shuttle or taxi. The penthouse is exceptionally clean and very nicely decorated and appointed with many appreciated unexpected additional amenities.After long days of snowboarding it was great to have super comfortable beds and a relaxing hot-tub. The elevator to access the property can be tricky and frustrating, be sure to press the code sequence slowly, and get a set of keys from the rental company for the doors inside, as they can accidentally get locked easily.The property managers were easy to contact,very helpful and quick to resolve any issues during our stay. This is a terrific penthouse property in a superb location.I would absolutely recommend it and would definitely stay again.

Lovely accommodations in the perfect spot!

Review by Hawaii Ohana
Our family had a fantastic time. With the location of this penthouse you have access to everything. Right downstairs via elevator is a great little grocery/liquor/gift store & designer boutique (Cecil's) that has just about everything you might need on short notice. Stateline Brewery is also downstairs and serves good food with great service. The gondola, Harrah's, Harvey's, Raley's and the Village shops, with all kinds of various gift shops, movie theatre, skating rink, etc. are all within walking distance. Now the unit itself is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable and the owner has done a wonderful job of decorating and furnishing it. Loved the "artwork" by a J.C. Smith in our room's shower. The style of this penthouse made us feel like we were out in the woods, almost, but with all the conveniences of being in town. Buckingham Properties did a great job. We left some items there and they were sent to us within 2 days. The parking permits had been taken by the prior renters so the owner drive out and hand delivered his personal passes within a couple hours of our arrival, very thoughtful. The only thing that was somewhat of a nuisance was smelling the food from the restaurant downstairs on occasion. It did make us want to eat there instead of utilizing the well set up kitchen in the unit but with the extremely large and accommodating dining table we ended up only going out to eat a couple of times. Even as large as the unit is it felt very warm and cozy, not to mention the private hot tub right out the door. We will be returning some winter soon when hopefully there is more snow on the hills.

Celebrated our 25th anniversary and rang in the New Year with ou

Review by Becky Marco
The service received from Buckingham properties was amazing until the time of check in. This particular property has a 5th bedroom which was shown to us by the owner's son when we viewed it and was one of the reasons why we chose it. We needed a 5th bedroom since it was our 25th anniversary and all of our children and grandchildren were going to be with us. In any event, the owner's son was aware our family would be with us but when it came time to check in and I called Buckhingham to alert them that the 5th bedroom was locked, I was told they thought there were only going to be two of us staying in the property even though we spoke extensively about family friendly activities on numerous occasions. The manager of Buckingham went on to say the owner was very "picky" and would never allow that many people to stay there and some of my family was going to have to stay elsewhere. Needless to say this was extremely upsetting as this was a very special occasion and the whole point to the trip was to celebrate in this beautiful location with our entire family. I immediately asked to speak to the owner of the property and he was kind, compassionate and considerate, not at all as described. He told us to relax and treat the home as our own which was easy to do. It was extremely luxurious and beautifully decorated while also being warm and comfortable with every imaginable amenity possible including warm fluffy robes for all. During our stay we met the owner's wife at their shop in Heavenly Village who was equally as lovely as the rest of the family. She has amazing taste which is reflected in her inventory as well as this amazing home. You will not be disappointed if you choose to rent this property.

Great location with or without snow

Review by Ava
We received very good service from Buckingham Properties. We did like the home very much and the location is excellent for both skiing, lake interests or casino life. Being located above a restaurant is sometimes tough with the constant smell of pizza and sometimes smoke. Also, there needs to be more organization of things in the kitchen...spices are a mess, no cereal bowls, no kitchen towels, no new sponges in wrappers. Also, there needs to be a notebook that describes everything about the house, spa and the different things to do in the area and restaurants. The views are great and when there is snow I think it would be even better. We had a week of no snow and for our first time in Tahoe it was a bummer.

Christine's weekend

Review by Angela
It was absolutely amazing! Everything from the location to the comfort of the bed. We had an amazing time. The only two things bad that happen was the propane went out in the BBQ and the owner of the place showed up with out calling. If you know this location the front door is an elevator. So my suprise I was standing there and the door open to this women. Thank goodness I wasn't naked or doing something I shouldn't have been doing. Needless to say it was a pleasant visit with her but was sooo not cool. Otherwise it was a very nice place and I would go back.
