About Brian Martin

We have three adult children enjoying the San Francisco life as we are spending more time at the Lake. We enjoy every season as each has unique offerings. Winter: peace and beauty of the falling snow, grooming our sled run, skiing at Homewood, cross country at Sugar Pine Park; Spring: snow run off with spontaneous streams and waterfalls, blooming wild flowers; Summer: spectacular weather for hiking, biking and water fun, evening meals on the deck; Autumn: the fall colors and salmon run up Taylor Creek

Brian Martin purchased this house in 2002

Why Brian Martin chose Tahoma

Growing up, my family had a cabin in South Tahoe. I am forever grateful for my parent’s hard work and efforts to support a vacation home. From that cabin we would typically drive 20-40 minutes to spend a summer’s day at a desirable beach. As an adult, my wife and three children did the same routine in summer and made the 40 minute drive to ski Kirkwood in winter as it was more kid friendly than Heavenly just blocks away from our cabin. When the opportunity came to purchase our own vacation home, we wanted a location that was less crowded than South Shore, would place us near a wonderful beach and an intimate ski resort. We found it in Tahoma. With Meeks Bay beach and Homewood Ski resort just 3 miles from the house, bike and hiking trails accessible without using the car, we couldn’t be happier with the location and the house is fantastic. We wish to share our experience and hope you come to call our house your vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Our house has a wonderful feeling the moment you walk through the door. The great room with 360° natural light and tree views. Quality furnishings, bedding and amenities create the comfort expected at your own home. A Weber Genesis natural gas BBQ for quality summer meals to enjoy on the comfortable deck table. We have easy access to both ski and beach, hiking and biking trails. We are the only rental property in Tahoma boasting an on-property sled run.

Wonderful Home, Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, well-maintained, enjoyable to stay in, and well-stocked with needed kitchen appliances. We also liked how the decor was appealing yet did not clutter the house (a plus when staying with small children)! Excellent rental!

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home doesn't feel like a rental. The owners are truly sharing their home with you! The home is furnished very with lots of extras in the kitchen. The caretakers are also very nice people and with all the snow in Tahoe they did a great job of keeping the drive way clear so we could get in and out easily. We will definitely try to rent this home again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind comments, our goal is for our guest to feel like they are enjoying their home, not somebody's vacation rental. We hope to have you return and consider our house as your "vacation home"
