About The Owner

I was in my late twenties when I purchased this condo. I lived in the condo for about 1.5 years before I started traveling extensively for work. I work as an independent Software Architect, consultant and instructor for internet based enterprise applications.

I am also an avid Skydiver, BASE Jumper, Speed-Flyer, Paraglider, Mountain Biker, Skier and Snowboarder. I love my condo in Tahoe City because it is close to world-class hike/bike trails, world-class skiing/snowboarding, just to name a few reasons. There is always amazing things to do in Tahoe, which can include relaxing in the fresh mountain air.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1998

Why The Owner chose Lake Forest

We purchased this condo due to the close proximity to the North side of Lake Tahoe. We personally love the 5 minute walk to the lake, the 20 minute walk into Tahoe City. We can also bike from our condo, up to the high school for endless bike trails. Kings beach, state-line and incline village are a short drive, and most of the ski resorts are 5 to 10 minutes drive away.

What makes this condo unique

The large deck is amazing for summer. You can drive up to the front door. No stairway or hallway to get into the condo. Easy access to Hwy 28, bike path and the lake. We regularly walk from our house to Tahoe city for coffee in the morning on the asphalt walking path. We regard our home highly, and strive to keep all the little things that anyone needs on their vacation, accessible, and available so you can relax.

We both travel for a living, and truly understand the importance of the 'little things' you need when you are on the road. We strive to ensure everything you need is already in place when you arrive. After all, we frequently vacation at our condo, and we expect everything to be 'set' so we can relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful stay in this beautifully appointed condo! The only downside was the stay wasn't long enough to enjoy all of the great amenities. We will be back for sure, however! Lovely bedrooms were equipped with comfortable beds/pillows, bathrooms clean and nicely updated, kitchen fully stocked, living room comfortable, cozy with great lighting and a fantastic rock fireplace. The private back deck was peaceful and condo grounds well maintained. The movie and book selection was a welcome surprise. The housekeeper was quick to respond when we had a request and was professional and friendly. This was by far the best vacation rental experience we've had!!! Thank you, Mick for the opportunity to stay in such a fine vacation home.

Excellent find for our annual Tahoe trip

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to Tahoe every summer for the last 5 years and always stay at different places. This condo was perfect for our family and I can definitely see us staying here again! We have stayed in this area before and love how close it is to the beach. We brought out bikes, but having the beach cruisers with baskets on site was wonderful for toting stuff to the beach. The condo was very well equipped with everything we needed making our stay quite comfortable, including fans in every room. When booking, Mick was very prompt in responding and answering any questions. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Clean & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated condo. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook meals. Very nice outside deck with large table (seats 6) and propane grill. There's extra parking for your boat and its very convenient to boat launching ramp and downtown Tahoe City. Highly recommend.

Awesome place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed the condo. Everything you needed for the kitchen or snow stuff, it was there. I most definitely recommend this condo for your vacation needs. It is so close to town but far enough to be quiet! As we were leaving the kids asked when we could come back to this condo again!!! Thank you for a beautiful home to share!!

Great and cozy lake Tahoe place

  • 5 of 5

The place was well equipped, great kitchen with everything needed to cook breakfast and dinner, outside bbq, all the necessities.

It accommodated 4 people comfortably, my parents were visiting from abroad and were surprised with everything that was offered, they had not so great airbnb experiences in europe and this place will definitely change their perception of it!
