House

8 Guests

4 Bedrooms

7 Beds

2 Bathrooms

Indian-embroidered poufs in front of a massive stone fireplace. Antique books on the nightstand. Syrian wooden chairs upholstered with a carpet from Afghanistan. These are just a few of the many ways that Caravansary provides a unique mountain retreat.

This is a house with a creative and loving personality - packed with inspiring treasures collected by the owners from their travels around the world. “Caravansary” is named after the ancient hotels where travelers were welcomed with care and attention as they traveled on the Silk Road. The owners of Carvansary want you to feel at home right away so you can start making memories of your own in this amazing house. They start with welcoming you with a “cookies-in-a-jar” gift for you to throw in the oven (just bring your own eggs and butter) – and voila! you’re ready for movie night!

The big living room with new hardwood floors features a cozy sectional, TV and 2 leather-like recliners just begging you to snuggle up and fall asleep. The open-concept living space connects the kitchen, living, and dining areas. Your chefs can watch the movie while they cook, and the fireplace snugglers can still talk to the board game players sitting at the dining table – which, by the way, seats 12(!) and is made from reclaimed wood from a 1904 Wisconsin barn. Two decks, one right off the downstairs bedroom, means that there’s space for both sunbathing and outdoor eating. The large backyard has a comfortable hot tub, a creek that babbles sweetly when there are heavy rains, 2 BBQ’s, a colorful hammock and swing, welcoming patio furniture, and of course that clean, crisp Tahoe air.

Upstairs includes an updated bathroom (August 2021) with a fabulous marble-look walk-in shower, and a common room with two sectionals and TV. Here, the kids can practice their best family performances in the one-of-a-kind “theater corner” complete with dramatic curtain and bins filled-to-the-brim with dress up items. All 4 bedrooms (including the lower queen bed on each bunkbed) boast super comfy mattresses (Purple and Tuft & Needle!) and awe-inspiring beam ceilings.

Drive only 10 minutes into town, and 20 minutes to camping, hiking, skiing, and waterfalls (including Camp Richardson, Emerald Bay, Heavenly, and Sierra at Tahoe).

THINGS TO NOTE

- Parking available for four vehicles in the driveway.
- This home is in a very quiet neighborhood best suited for families or those looking to relax. No loud parties of any kind allowed.
- Wood is available for the indoor fireplace, but the outdoor wood-burning sauna is out of service due to fire danger.

Accurate description, nice place

by Luis C.
Our stay was great, we enjoyed the house. Unfortunately a couple people left items behind after we left. Coordinating with the property manager to have those items shipped back to us was a fairly painful experience. It took a couple weeks of frequent follow-ups with no helpful updates from their end. Then one day, without any notice, we eventually received most of our things, and it wasn’t cheap. So as long as you don’t forget any of your belongings, it’s a good option.

Big yet cozy

by erica b.
We had a great time and the kids did too. Many reviews mention not enough supplies but it seemed to us there was plenty, maybe left behind by previous visitors. Has cute little details throughout the house. both bunk beds were uncomfortable def needs new mattresses but aside from that it was a great stay. Floors were extremely dirty : / even though no one walked inside with shoes on.
Hi Erica, Thanks for staying with us in Tahoe! We're so glad to hear that you've enjoyed your stay. We sincerely apologize for the lack of cleaning in the home. I have shared your review with our local manager and our housekeeping team to ensure that the floors are properly cleaned for future arrivals. We hope to host you again, thank you!

Nice for large family

by Jennifer J.
Our overall experience was good! Pros-We had a large group with kids and everyone slept comfortably. The family room is great because it’s open to the kitchen so we were all together most of the time. It had a loft for the kids to play. We never left because the kids played in the snow in the backyard (a very big plus)! Tons of blankets. Cons- the upstairs hot water valve wouldn’t turn so everyone had to shower in 1 bathroom. No one slept on the top bunks because the boards were broken or about to break so they felt unsafe. Other things- the toilet paper handle was broke so it would fall off (but not a big deal). Not that many cups so bring cups (I left some for the next people). Our overall experience was great and would definitely book this house again.

Nice house for our party size.

by Cynthia R.
The upstairs shower is not very powerful the downstairs shower head is too big for the tub so water flows everywhere the kitchen is a nice-sized, however there are not many pots and pans and other kitchen equipment that are necessary to cook for a family. For example only one frying pan and only four coffee cups not a big deal because I brought a lot of paper and plastic ware so I did not have to wash dishes. You need to bring your own wood for the wood stove however the wood stove does not heat up the house the two upstairs bedrooms do not have heating vents so the rooms are very cold there was no wood or water bucket for the sauna so did not use. Over all these are little things but had a very good stay at this house for the price.

Wonderful property overall.

by Collin F.
Pros: Hot tub and wood burning sauna are incredible. This is a great place to maximize your "hygge" life. Very cozy place. You do need to bring your own firewood, which is important for both the fireplace and the sauna. The decor is intentional and their are tons of little touches which make it feel lived in and human (versus the sterile feeling that you normally get when a place is decorated/furnished by a property management company). Kitchen/dining area is spacious. Downstairs shower is high pressure and fantastic. We fit four cars in the driveway and didn't even need to open the garage. Only 17min from Sierra at Tahoe. Cons: Per the other reviews, there were slightly too few dishes. The upstairs bathroom shower was cramped and in need of renovation. The rim of the top stair between dining/living area was broken when we arrived and kept falling off revealing exposed nails. Overall I through this home was wonderful and a great value. I intend to stay here again in the future if the price remains the same.

Very lovely home.

by Phillip M.
Beautiful home with a beautiful backyard. The hot tub was great and very cozily fit a group of 12 adult men. Home was well furnished and Paramount was very quick and helpful with issues we had (no issues but we needed propane tanks refilled and they took care of it promptly). Would book again in an instant. There was lots of snow so we didn't get to fully enjoy the large backyard or upper deck but it was still very nice.

OUTSTANDING!

by Stefan C.
The house and property were immaculate. Matt (Property Manager) remained in solid communications with the crazy weather that came in during our arrival. The historic snowfall and snowbanks were insane, however; the property management made it a priority to work for hours upon my arrival to clean the driveway and property. Extremely pleased and highly recommend!

Unforgettable experience

by Khalid D.
Caravansaray was a rustic, cozy, and beautiful home, nestled in a very quiet part of South Lake Tahoe, just a short drive from the lake. This was our first time staying there. What a memorable time! It was the perfect home for our family as our kids loved the large yard with the Jacuzzi, and the upstairs game loft. The house exceeded our expectations. The description provided matched what we experienced: Open spaces, comfortable beds, well maintained rooms and a spacious deck with all-around seating to enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you while sipping on a hot chocolate. This home had its own special character that provided our family with a warm feeling. We loved our stay and we will definitely be going back with our friends!

Beautiful but had maintenance problems

by Kim N.
The house was beautiful. It accommodated us well and had all the essentials that we needed. We just had maintence issues. The first night we were there we found the plumber there. He left and came back. We thought he had fixed the problem until we tried to use the sink and water poured out of one side. We had to call them to come back out again. They gave us exactly 12 towels for 12 people and we had to use one of those towels to soak up the water. There were lights that didn't work and we didn't know where the light bulbs were to change them. Our second night the hose to the shower head upstairs cracked and we were left with one shower. It was 10 o'clock at night so we didn't want the maintence people coming out when I was trying to put my kids to sleep. So other then the maintence and towel issues, we enjoyed the home.

Great Stay!

by Jackie H.
Stayed here for a birthday celebration. Nice cabin with a large open space downstairs to hang out with everyone at the same time. The backyard had a great space too, we brought some games to play back there and had plenty of space to spare! There were also a lot of pans/pots to cook with and plates/utensils to use which really helped out with our homemade meals. The store was also just a short drive away if needed! The owners were so sweet to include a pre-made signature chocolate chip cookie dough mix 😉 for us guests to enjoy! I only have one recommendation; put the pool table downstairs because there isn't much space to use it with a large group upstairs.

Hooray!

by Mary R.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is great and the backyard is perfect for kids (hard to tell from the listing, but it is fully fenced so you don't have to worry about being on a major street). We loved the hot tub and sauna. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment. The property manager and owner were very responsive with our one minor issue (cable TV subscription had lapsed--they had it up and running almost immediately). Our only request would be to put some grippy stuff on the three wood steps at the bottom of the carpeted staircase--they're pretty slippery and we had a few falls. Thank you so much for the great vacation house!

So cozy and relaxing!

by Amira Q.
We never experienced Lake Tahoe like this! Every need was met from a colander to a seriously comfortable bed. I actually want to find out what kind of mattress it was so I can buy it. The kids had plenty of space to roam around outside or play video games or foosball upstairs or even just sleep in because there were enough beds for my nieces and nephews too. The comfy recliner in front of the fireplace seduced me into a nap, and then we decided to just stay in and enjoy the hot tub under the stars. there was enough space for two families to spread out and still feel close together. to top it off, the beautiful sandy beach with plenty of shallow water for the kids to wade in, easy parking, close-by ice-cream made a day at the beach a breeze.
