Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in South Lake Tahoe - 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 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.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I would highly Recommend this house to stay at during the summer or winter. First impressions of the house, was beautiful on the inside and the outside. The inside was updated with modern features that was nice, there were a couple scratches on the walls here and there, and the only issue we had was there was no A/C but it had a A/C unit and got pretty warm when we were up there. The outside was very nice it had a hot tub, big deck with chairs and activities to play and since we stayed during summer time it worked very well. I think the location of this place is awesome, the drive is about 5 minutes from Heavenly Village which is what we wanted. Duggan gave very easy instructions prior to our arrival. They had a nice gift basket on the dining room table which I though gave a nice touch, and had a black binder with any questions/ his recommendations during our stay, they also had a red book which everyone had signed while staying at the place which I really enjoyed reading and writing our own. Overall a great place to stay for any vacation!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house. There is an AC setting on the generic thermostat, but no actual AC unit. We provide fans in every bedroom to bring in the cool evening air.

Beautiful and fun home with a great location

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this home after the end of ski season. Our family of 6 really appreciated the details and good communication with the owner. The backyard was spacious and we had a good time playing ladder ball, bocce ball, and our toddler enjoyed the swing set. The beds were comfy and the house was pretty clean all around. These folks even gave us a welcome basket with some reading material and treats to kick off our trip. Very nice touch. The owner was also very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. We would definitely consider staying here again.

We were happy with the house and especially loved the close location to Heavenly. We felt like it was well furnished with plenty of extra towels, plates, glasses, etc. We would most definitely stay again.

Perfect ski vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were top notch. Our stay felt like we were in a very high end hotel, as opposed to staying in a stranger's house, like some other home rentals feel. The interior felt very new and very clean, which is important to me. The owner was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating and dedicated to making sure the guests have a perfect stay.

The location was perfect. This truly is a ski-in, ski-out property, as opposed to other who make such claim but are actually a mile away from the lifts. We were able to walk out the front door, and pick up our skis from the valet at California Lodge within 5 minutes. Our trip included 3 couples, and we kept saying over and over how perfect the setup was for our group.
