About Bauback Safa

We are the Ruskins/Safas, a large family on both coasts with 8 children and 11 grandchildren, so we enjoy the mountains a lot year round. The home is rented for stays up to 2 weeks when not being used by family. We hope you will enjoy and care for our house as much as we do.

Bauback Safa purchased this house in 2005

Why Bauback Safa chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We chose Tahoe Donner because of its proximity to several ski areas, Donner Lake and Lake Tahoe. Our location near the rec center is important in that we can walk to it. The large tennis center and golf course are nearby and we are avid about both. The private beach at Donner Lake is great for swimming, water play and has a boat launch and rental boats of various type.

A great place to make your headquarters for a Tahoe Donner visit

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and grandson stayed for a weekend to attend a wedding. Plenty of room, well appointed, clean, centrally located, and the owner is very accommodating and responsive. The spa was wonderful, beds are comfortable, and our stay was enjoyable.

Luxurious and full of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home that is accommodating and comfortable. Great entertainment options at home if you'd like to have a lazy day at the house. Pool table that doubles as a ping pong table provided hours of fun. We appreciated the Verizon extender as it provided perfect service. Each bedroom is connected to a bathroom which is ideal if you have multiple adult couples in your group. There weren't any instructions regarding the use of the fire pit so we didn't utilize it. Kitchen is well equipped for family meals. Hot tub was great after a long day of fun. Only item missing was a can opener. Ping pong equipment was on it's last leg and sparse. Overall we loved our stay and look forward to returning.

Great! Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful home, thanks for sharing! Only a couple concerns, When we got here there were wet towels in washer and the trash bin was already completely full. But other than those two things, our family enjoyed the home and our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house! Each room is private, 2 separate floors for privacy and roomy areas for everyone to have relaxing space. Unlike other properties no extra beds shoved in everywhere. Even the daybeds are by themselves. Deck is great for morning coffee or evening bbque. Everything our family needed!
