Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was amazing! We stayed after thanksgiving for a few days to do some hiking and be in the outdoors, and this was the perfect place to come back to. The location was fantastic - right near to stateline and the town, yet quiet and peaceful. It was also right across from the water with a park right in front of the house. The best thing about the house was the quality of the appliances, electronics, and house in general. Often at houses like this things can look nice but be fairly cheap. This was not the case here with a great surround sound system hooked up to the TV, great kitchen appliances, and great bathrooms! I'll definitely try to stay here again when I'm in south lake Tahoe, it can't be beat!

Can't beat the views

  • 5 of 5

We rent this spacious home for our family get-together every year now, which easily accommodates all 10 of us. We end up spending a lot of our time indoors enjoying the lake views from the warmth and comfort of this wonderful home! When we venture outside, we simply walk across the street to the beach and park. Taking a walk on the beach is very convenient! The home is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and well-appointed.

The location is perfect – with the beach, bike/kayak rentals, and shopping close by. We definitely recommend this home, so much that we have made it our annual retreat.

Great home for winter or summer time in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation. We brought our kids and grand kids there for a week. This home has 3 levels, so if stairs are a problem I wouldn't recommend it.The first floor, which is street level, has a small living room which was nice for the kids to play games or watch movies.

The 2nd floor which is the main living area has a open concept. It even feels more open because of the many windows looking out over Lake Tahoe. We especially enjoyed the 2 rocking chairs in front of almost floor to ceiling windows having our coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. This level has a small deck off the main eating area. Wish that was a little bigger but, it is adequate. The kitchen is nicely laid out and has everything you may need to cook, which we did. I brought a few things from home thinking they might not be included and I did not need to. The master bedroom is on this level also and a restroom. The master bathroom is awesome. We used the tub with jets every night and the shower is huge, all 3 grand kids showered together. Fun! All of the beds were very comfortable. The location was perfect. It is close to shopping, the clubs, skiing (Heavenly or Sierra at Tahoe), sledding (Adventure Snow Park). It is right across the street from Reagan Park which was great for us. We just put our snow clothes on and walked across the street. The kids could sled, build snowmen etc. right there.

Parking is a little tight. It states room for 4 cars; 2 in garage, 2 in driveway. That did not work for us because of the size of our trucks. We had 2 trucks and 1 SUV that just fit in the spaces. There is no street parking.

The property is very well maintained and the owner was very pleasant to work with.

We are already trying to figure out a week in the summer to go back.

Amazing! Location and View was incredible

  • 5 of 5

Just went to this cabin last week with two other families and had a blast. The place is amazing and we loved that it has three floors (each family on a different floor with their own bathroom). We were concerned about the stairs but it was not an issue at all with 3 of the kids being under 3 years old. I can't wait to book this place again.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property with thoughtful details and wonderful service. From beginning to the end the owner was responsive and over-exceeded our expectations. The property was super clean and contained everything for a memorable relaxing weekend gateway. The location is great and close to everything and right on the lake.

I hope owner adds hot-tube to this amazing property for our next stay :)

Best Rental We've Ever Stayed At!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak higher of this vacation rental! This house was extremely clean, had a stocked kitchen (pots, pans, plates, etc.), stocked paper towels and TP (crucial for 10 guests when you get in from a long drive), games, 2 Washers & Dryers, and more!! Not only that but the location was perfect for a quick run to the grocery store, 5 minutes to Heavenly, a couple steps from sledding, and an immaculate view of the lake. My group and I celebrated my sisters birthday and we made dinner at the house every night, slept comfortably and was able to be on the Heavenly lifts by 845 the next morning. I hope that we can rent this house again next year, it was just PERFECT!

You’ll find our home on the California side of South Lake Tahoe, situated just 200 ft. from the beautiful beach of Lake Tahoe across the street from Reagan Park, and 5 minutes to Heavenly Ski Resort, one of the largest ski areas in all of Tahoe. The proximity to parks, beaches, and ski runs make it an ideal year-round location, and Lake Tahoe is never hurting for events. You’ll find something for everyone including concerts, carnivals, comedy shows, and dance lessons. Reagan Park, just across the street, offers plenty of activities for the kids, including volleyball, play areas, and swimming at the nearby sandy beach. If you are arriving by plane, our home is located just about 5 minutes from Lake Tahoe Airport or about 1 hour from Reno Airport. We do recommend renting a car for your stay. If you plan to drive, we are approximately 45 minutes from Carson City, 1.5 hours from Reno, 2 hours from Sacramento, just over 3 hours from San Francisco, and about 4 hours from San Jose.
