About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Beautiful home. Excessive cleaning deposit in my opinion to simply change linens in comparable similar homes. Check out requests dishes washed, laundry started and garbage emptied. Personally we left it spotless. Would like to go back now that we know how to access key better but hopefully no bats guarantee and/or fee adjustment would balance that out.

Great property!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Property was comfortable and large enough for 10 people (3 families). We had everything we needed and would definitely rent it again.

Beautiful, Warm Home Stocked with Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying in this home. The kitchen is well-stocked with every appliance you might need and the rooms are fantastic -- especially the luxurious master bedroom. We would stay here again without question.

Beautiful home... enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and two young godchildren truly enjoyed our stay at The Ponderosa. I would have given it a five star rating had it not been for the difficulties we had gaining entry to the home (by staff own admission we had be given wrong access code); and for the fact that snow had not been cleared from the stairs and driveway entry( we had to shovel snow to get our car in the garage). From the outside, it looked as if we were not expected. Once inside, all was fine, and the comfort of the home made it easy to disengage from out initial difficulties. The home is spacious and beautifully appointed. Amenities abound from the beautiful electric fireplace which is warm and inviting, to the large flat screen HD TV, to the fully stocked stainless steel kitchen. The house is very clean and well maintained. All three bedrooms have en suite baths and were well stocked with comfortable bedding, towels , body products, even hairdryers and shower caps! The upper floor master bedroom is a retreat unto itself. SPOILER ALERT: You won't believe the master bathroom- truly jaw-dropping. The home is filled with rustic charm and makes for a superb mountain getaway. It is a great place for kids with a loft/sleeping area which for older kids is quite suitable for games and play. Overall I feel the home is a great offering; and well worth the price. We loved it. Our kids loved it. I would definitely stay again.
