Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Tahoe Island - 815 South Shore Dr; South Lake

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 478492 AND 440131

Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2011 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and cozy downstairs hideaway or the two big decks overlooking a creek.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a hot tub, a grill, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

• Complimentary gift basket on arrival

• Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers

• Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

• Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

• Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

• Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier

• Not over crowded, only two people to a room

• Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

• No keys to lose, choose your own code for our digital lock

Upstairs features a large open plan kitchen and living area. Beautiful slate flooring, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and HDTV above the gas fireplace. Send the kids downstairs to the large flat screen with Playstation 3, the foozball table or the game area. Cook up dinner on the barbecue or soak in the hot tub from the decks overlooking the creek and trees.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed, remote controlled electric fireplace and its own bathroom and two rooms with queen beds, one has a slider to the back deck. Down stairs is lots of space including a forth bedroom (no closet) with a queen bed. There are also two twin futon couches. All your towels and linens are provided

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features alder cabinets and concrete counters. There are brand new fridgidaire appliances including a dishwasher and convection/microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

Relaxing is easy with a cozy fireplace and game and reading nook. The foozball table is great fun. We are wired for entertainment with 37' and 42' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is a good one. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly 10min; Sierra at Tahoe 20min; Kirkwood 35min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 5min; Golf 10min. This is a quiet, flat residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to a sunny wooded area and creek. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and have been drawn to the place ever since. In fact I moved here permanently ten years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer. My wife Angela and I feel very lucky to be able to raise our two kids in this amazing outdoor playground.

Duggan Smith purchased this house in 2010

Why Duggan Smith chose Tahoe Island

We bought this place, that is around the corner from where we live, so we would have somewhere for my family to stay when they visit from Australia. I was able to remodel it top to bottom with a great place to vacation being the goal all along.

What makes this house unique

Complimentary gift basket on arrival

• Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers

• Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

• Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!

  • 5 out of 5
This property was everything and more.. Beautiful inside and out. Massive living spaces and a beautiful kitchen. It really felt like our home away from home. Loved the fact that people left behind food items they did not use. Which we also did when we left. Our three kids had the best time in Lake Tahoe and thanks Duggen for making our stay one we will remember . We will definately be coming back again but for longer next time. Highly recommend this place.

Wonderful stay!

  • out of 5
The place looks small at first from outside but once you get in everything changes! It is renovated and clean. It was a nice 'homey' feeling that felt comfortable and inviting. The kitchen is fully equiped so there is no need to bring anything! There were 10 of us and it was a perfect fit. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Our friends and I loved this place. It was worth staying this place. It looks small from outside, however the inside is huge and very modern and warm. We just loved it. Thank you, Duggan!

Great Vacation Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
This house was perfect for our 4 night Family Reunion over the New Years Weekend. All our 3 adult children, spouses and 2 grandchildren stayed with each having their own bedroom. Our 2 small grandkids were happy to sleep on the fold-out futon in their parents downstairs bedroom. The big main room and kitchen/dining area was large enough for all of us to hang out in without feeling cramped. Kitchen had everything you could need-we made all our meals there with ease. Everyone used the hot tub, which was clean and in order. Plenty of towels along with a washer/dryer when needed. Duggan promptly responded to any texts we sent. I liked the beautiful slate throughout the main living area instead of carpet-which always makes it feel cleaner. There was nice touches such as robes in the bedroom closets, snow saucers outside for the kids, basket of goodies upon arrival, games and cards, every kitchen appliance you could want, an easy to use gas fireplace in the living area as well as in the master bedroom. We BBQ'd one night and that was a breeze as the gas is fed from the house gas line-brilliant! The beds were comfy with enough blankets for all. We loved this rental and will definitely be back. It was close to everything but in a neighborhood off the main streets for a quieter stay. We could run to get groceries, rent movies, go skiing, grab a latte easily but still have our own place to go back to and have fun in. We rented ice-skates at a nearby shop and skated on Caples Lake near Kirkwood one day. Super fun! We totally recommend 'The Brewery' for pizza from previous trips up. The best! After packing up we ate breakfast at 'The Driftwood Cafe' in the Heavenly Gondola shops and restaurant area before our long drive home. It was good.

We rented this house for a 4 night stay during Christmas of the year. The house is perfect. Well appointed kitchen, great bedrooms with clean towels and robes, hot tub, plenty of games and just a great place to chill. Highly recommend it.

Great stay!

  • 4 out of 5
My friends and I had an awesome girls' weekend in Tahoe - mostly thanks to the fantastic accommodations provided by Duggan! The kitchen, in particular, was amazing and we spent a lot of time cooking and hanging out there. Our only disappointment was the 10am check out time. It felt like we didn't really even get a half day at the house - and, with the 4pm check in on Friday, it really did feel like we were only really there for 1 full day. Other than that, this was an excellent experience!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the house.

Our standard check in/out is 4/10. These times were recommended by our cleaning service for the days where we have one guest check out in the morning and another in in the afternoon. From what I know they are fairly standard in the area and some times they need every minute to prepare the house for the new guest.

We are very flexible on those times where we can be though. We grant 99% of the requests we receive for an early/late check in/out with no charge.

On check in day if the house is ready its all yours, if the cleaners are working on it, we can have them text you when its ready and dropping off luggage or groceries earlier than that is always fine.

Slightly later check outs are usually possible and late, late check outs are fine if the schedule allows.

Please feel free to ask for different check in/out times in future and we will do our best to accommodate.

Duggan

This is a great neighborhood to be in year round. Quiet, with predominantly local residents surrounding.

In the Winter it is a short drive to all the South Shore ski resorts, snowmobiling and sledding operations. There is lots of open space both directly behind and close by the house for sledding, snow play or snow shoeing. The neighborhood is right off the main highway with flat roads for easy driving.

In the Summer the bike path route to near by beaches, restaurants and attractions runs right by. Nice hiking can be started directly from the house or a short drive away.
