Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Heavenly Valley - 3833 Woods Ave; South Lake Tah

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-10)

PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 478492 AND 383106

Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2012 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and kids/games room or the two big decks overlooking a forest service land.

Its an amazing house but even better is the location. Just one block from the Heavenly California Base Lodge. Walk to skiing, use the free ski bus to get to and from the casinos and shops, two minute drive or cheap taxi to just about everything.

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

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

Walk to Heavenly California base

Take free ski bus to and from casinos and shops

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

Enter into 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 upstairs 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 forest service land.

There are two bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed and its own bathroom and huge deck and another bedroom with a queen bed. Down stairs is another bedroom with a separate door to the bathroom and direct access to the deck and hot tub. 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 40' and 46' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is awesome. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly one block walk; Sierra at Tahoe 30min; Kirkwood 45min;Casinos 2min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 2min; Golf 2min. This is a quiet residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to forest service land. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and was immediately smitten. 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 2012

Why Duggan Smith chose Heavenly Valley

We fell into the vacation rental business in 2010 after buying a house together with my mum, so Granny would have a place to stay when visiting our kids. Its been a great combination of my passions for real estate, construction and customer service. Location is everything for this house, immediate access to skiing, hiking and biking, incredibly quiet but just a couple of minutes to the center of the action. I gutted this house completely and rebuilt it with a new layout optimizing the space.

What makes this house unique

Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

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

quick trip to Tahoe with teenage daughter and friends

  • 5 of 5

Took three teenage girls to learn to snow board at Heavenly....ideal location as you just walk around the corner and you are there! Home is really lovely...incredibly appointed with everything you can imagine to cook with. Really nice to show up and see there is toilet paper, paper towels and even coffee filters. Hot tub was delightful, great gas grill, two awesome TV's...nice area for adult/kid separation if you need that (we believe it or not didn't!) Cant' say enough about this lovely home...we lucked out!

Satisfying stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation rental, close to the Heavenly Resort, which was our primary criteria. Comfortable beds, good water pressure, everything works! Owners even welcomed us with a lovely basket of snacks, fruit and even lip balm!! So thoughtful!!! The kitchen was great: all the necessary tools, utensils needed to prepare meals for a family of 7. Plenty of space. Would rent again!!

Fabulous Heavenly Location

  • of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful stay at Duggan's house. The house has plenty of separation for privacy. A fully equipped kitchen & laundry. It is a very comfortable & large house within walking distance to Heavenly ski resort. The welcome pack and kitchen ingredients are a much appreciated extra. Duggan was extremely helpful during our booking enquiries. I would highly recommend this house.

Fantastic Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. We stayed for the Holiday week (Christmas through New Years) with a large group of 3 families with young children. We were close enough to the Heavenly California Base that even the 3 year old was able to walk there on her own. Town was very close by and easily accessible. All of the amenities were provided, the kitchen was well stocked, and the hot tub was a fantastic bonus to come home after a cold day on the slopes.

Duggan, the owner, was great at responding quickly to any emails or questions we had prior to our trip. By random luck, he was also our private snowboard instructor assigned by Heavenly during our stay. We had 4 kids in the group ranging in age from 3-9. He was FANTASTIC with them, even the rowdy ones!

If I have to find an area of improvement it would be that we did run out of toilet paper during our stay and a door mat at the rear door gets caught under the door every time you open it.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone or to any group looking for a prime location, comfy beds, and a very well taken care of rental.

Thanks again Duggan

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house. I was especially happy that we got to snowboard together it was a pleasure. If any guests are planning to take a lesson I would love to be the guy. Give me a call and I will organize everything for you. Dito if you just want some advice on getting the most out of your skiing or other activities. As a standard there are 6-9 rolls of toilet paper in the house, the cleaners should leave more for longer stays but it doesnt always happen. Duely noted on the rug I will replace it.

Perfection for the holidays with the Family

  • 5 of 5

First off the location was perfect, close to town, the resort, shopping, restaurants, etc... I've rented many times in Tahoe and it can be hit or miss because many houses haven't been updated internally since the 70's. THIS IS NOT THE CASE with this rental! I loved the open flow of the house, kitchen and living shared in such a large space that you didn't feel disconnected from your other guest. The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were really comfortable. We had the kids stay in the activity room upstairs which was perfect for 2-3 kids. I loved the details of the house, the stone work, the bathrobes, and toiletries supplied. We used the hot tub and it was so nice when it was snowing.

There wasn't enough snow to hit the mountains so we went on many hikes. Since we were so close to the CA side of Heavenly we were able to hike up the mountain and explore with the kids on the resort. It was really cool because I've never been on that mountain without boarding down it, so my 3 year old loved exploring that area on foot. So fun.

Booking and communication was very easy to do as the owner was extremely responsive and sent my deposit back within a day. And to end the wonderful trip with the family the cleaning instructions were pretty minimal so it didn't feel like an arduous task to check out - seamless actually.

I would highly recommend this place and rent this wonderful house again. Thank you to Duggan for such a wonderful stay.
