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 Lake Tahoe South Shore

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.

Spacious, clean, and everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, well-stocked house that slept everyone in my group comfortably. Just a quick walk to Heavenly and has an excellent kitchen with all the tools you need for baking and cooking large meals for many friends. I definitely recommend and would love to stay here again!

South Lake Tahoe Heavenly Ski Resort

  • 5 of 5

Dugan Smith as manager of the property fulfilled his role perfectly! The home is as advertised in great condition . It's access to the Tram and the Gunpowder Quad gets you on to the mountain faster than I think any location could. A 5 minute walk in ski boots but with the 20 foot snow mounds you have to walk around to the lifts but we "suffered". A 5 minute drive down to the main drag in a South Lake Tahoe was a breeze. The large 6 person hot tub outside was perfect at the end of the day. Realistically it sleeps 6 unless someone wants to crash on the couch but who is argueing. For a small group going to Heavenly to ski you couldn't do better.

Pick this home :)

  • 5 of 5

Superior customer service! Questions about anything were answered in minutes via texts. Our first time to Heavenly. I had no idea where to stay or what to expect with regard to potential accommodations, access to the slopes, ect. took a chance and rented this home as it appeared close to the slopes and had a private hot tub!! Would definitely rent again and highly recommend the property.The home is about a 5 minute walk to the tram in the CA side. It is tastefully decorated and very well equipped, kitchen and all!!! Had my favorite Fuzzy soft blankets for all the bedrooms and an extra for the t.v. room in the loft:) 2 of the 3 beds were very comfortable, the master downstairs not so comfy for me anyway, it was harder then I prefer. The garage housed our rented suburban, but only at an angle, straight in would be extremely tight!!!! we totally lucked out and got the MAJOR snow Dump while there, Heavenly actually closed for 1 day! The road in front was plowed regularly. The owner came by to shovel the driveway but it was easier for us to keep up and we had already done it, he left a nice note. Lots of ice melt, nice snow shovels, all essentials for the weather. There was laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, tons of coffee filters, spices, ect. for use and greatly appreciated. Think that's about it .. so rent knowing you picked a great place!!
