          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We, Sebastian and Mary bought the house in 2013 to provide our children, ages 8 and 2 with contrast as our full-time residence is in San Francisco. We work and live in the city and we find Tahoe a magical retreat. We chose to purchase this home so we can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the nature and beauty of Tahoe. It is our hope that you enjoy staying at our vacation home as much as we do.

          Why the Owner Chose Tahoe City:
          In the summer of 2013, as a family we visited Tahoe and fell in love with all that it has to offer. Shortly after our last visit we decided that we wanted to spend more time in this beautiful place and decided to buy a home with the intentions of making it a vacation rental. After looking at over 20 homes, we kept coming back to this house due to the natural light, open floor plan, beautiful open greenbelt and the overall awesome location. We come from a large community of family and friends so we chose this house with that in mind. We look forward to having a big enough space to spend quality time with our friends and family and we hope you use rent the house for the same reason.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The house has all the essentials of home!
