Tahoe Island Park house description

PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 478492 AND 440131

Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2011 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and cozy downstairs hideaway or the two big decks overlooking a creek.

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
• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers
• 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
• Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier
• 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


Upstairs features 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 downstairs 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 the creek and trees.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed, remote controlled electric fireplace and its own bathroom and two rooms with queen beds, one has a slider to the back deck. Down stairs is lots of space including a forth bedroom (no closet) with a queen bed. There are also two twin futon couches. 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 37' and 42' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is a good one. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly 10min; Sierra at Tahoe 20min; Kirkwood 35min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 5min; Golf 10min. This is a quiet, flat residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to a sunny wooded area and creek. Take it all in from the two big decks.

                  Car: Recommended

                  This is a great neighborhood to be in year round. Quiet, with predominantly local residents surrounding.

                  In the Winter it is a short drive to all the South Shore ski resorts, snowmobiling and sledding operations. There is lots of open space both directly behind and close by the house for sledding, snow play or snow shoeing. The neighborhood is right off the main highway with flat roads for easy driving.

                  In the Summer the bike path route to near by beaches, restaurants and attractions runs right by. Nice hiking can be started directly from the house or a short drive away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and have been drawn to the place ever since. 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.

                  Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Island Park:
                  We bought this place, that is around the corner from where we live, so we would have somewhere for my family to stay when they visit from Australia. I was able to remodel it top to bottom with a great place to vacation being the goal all along.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Complimentary gift basket on arrival • Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms • On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers • 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 • Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier • Not over crowded, only two people to a room • Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out • No keys to lose, we'll send you a code for our digital lock
