About Sandy Kopanos

I have built a dream house and am 100% involved in all daily operations and give my personal touch to every detail to insure your stay feels like you're home. Welcome!!!

Sandy Kopanos purchased this chateau / country house in 1962

Why Sandy Kopanos chose South Lake Tahoe

The property has been in my family for over 50 years. In 2010 construction began to raze the existing house and build a new home designed for the Lake Tahoe lifestyle. Open floor plan, large gathering kitchen and dining areas, fine woodworking, brazilian cherry hardwood floors and unique craftsmanship are just some of the fine finish details throughout. A charming front porch to watch the world go by and a full back yard for entertaining: fire pit, BBQ, horseshoes, volleyball and badminton.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Parking and traffic can sometimes be tough in and around Heavenly Village. Staying here, you can park your car and walk to everything. The location here really makes a difference. It is faster to walk to the Gondola than to drive there, park, unload and walk to the ticket counter.....much easier too!

Pictures don't do this home justice

  • 4 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay in this home over a weekend with a group of my girlfriends. This home is emasculate! It has a fully stocked kitchen, which was very helpful, and amenities galore. With 10 of us, we still all had plenty of room to spread out, eat at the dinner table, and comfortably enjoy the living room. The location is also lovely. We had quite a bit of snow, so it was not walk-able to the strip, but would be fine on a nice day. The only downside was that there is a $350 cleaning fee included in the price, yet it was still requested that we strip all the beds and place linens in the laundry room, as well as load and run the dishwasher. i feel that with a cleaning crew coming and the fee for cleaning, housekeeping should take care of that rather than the gussets. Otherwise, this is a wonderful place to stay and i would book it again. Thanks Sandy!

Charming, spacious, extremely well located

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week with family (5 adults, 3 children) at Sandy's house. I can't decide what is best about this place:

- Really close to Gondola, grocery store, restaurants

- Still, it is located in a calm, low traffic little street, away from noise and no traffic (safe for kids to be outside)

- A ton of space, charming decoration, etc.

- The only situation I needed help with was garbage disposal, which happens only once a week and there is no outside bear proof place, but Sandy promptly sent someone pick it up! She is the best!

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated home is spacious, clean, and had everything we could want - nice large kitchen, 5 large bedrooms, laundry, DVDs, WiFi. The location is great because you can walk to the Heavenly gondola in 10 minutes. We would definitely stay here again!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was my first time using homeway and Sandy made my experience stress free and easy going! The house was perfectly described as her ad was written, it went above all my expectations! It's a cozy place and so close to everything, it was so perfect! The house itself is fairly new and you can tell she takes good care of the household and makes sure it's always in good standing condition! Definitely looking forward to next year and I'm hoping I can reserve this house for the next time we go! Definitely don't hesitate when viewing this property for a weekend getaway, you'll love it!
