Why Ken chose South Lake Tahoe
It will be hard for you to find more for your money than this one. I know because I have seen most all of the 20 sleepers. Not only that but I live next and will provide you with anything you might need to make your vacation perfect.

Great for family gatherings
My wife and I had our 4 children , there spouses, and our 7 grandchildren ages 6, 5, 4,3,2,1, 4 and mos. and went to Tahoe to celebrate my wife's surprise 60th B-day. The house was great. the owners Ken and Terry lived next door and were so friendly and accommodating - when we needed kitchen items ( foil, briquets for the BBQ etc). they also loaned us shovels and buckets for the kids to play in the dirt and sand at the beach.
The room wiht the 3 bunkbeds was great fro the older kids. The only thing that would have made the house perfect , is two of the rooms w queen beds were open - loft rooms, so they did not have doors to shut in the morning when the kids woke up early. If we do a family gathering again we will definitely go back there.
We rented the cabin for my son’s girlfriends 21st Birthday. The nice part about this cabin is the divided areas. There was plenty of space to be together and separate areas so you could be alone. The owner was a very nice man who was willing to help any way he could. My family had a really good time that weekend. Thank you!
Great place to stay.
Great place for several families to stay together. Ken was a wonderful and helpful host.
this was a great group of people it was a pleasure helping them find their way around Tahoe. I offered them a 1/2 stay next time.
Roomy comfortable and great location.
This was a nice location, convenient for food and activities. Plenty of room for a larger party.
Don’t be deceived by the pretty pictures!
My family rented Ken’s home for our vacation over the Fourth of July and to celebrate my mother’s 88th birthday. We were so looking forward to our trip as we owned a vacation home in Sourh Lake Tahoe for many years and the area held many fond memories for us. Upon arrival, Ken greeted us with his list of rules and regulations. We were very agreeable in the beginning but after a few days of his constant interference of our privacy, it got annoying. His property next door overlooks the rental property so that he has a complete view of our activities at all times. He made himself available so much that we felt his presence during our entire stay, whether it be to ask for more garbage and recycling bags to adding more water to the jacuzzi, or why the heaters don’t work properly,etc. The house is actually much smaller than described and does not offer any privacy in the lofts. He advertises six bedrooms when there are only two. It was difficult to sleep in the lofts as they got very hot at night and every little sound seemed to be magnified. The refrigerator is very small so we had to shop a few times every day to feed our crowd. We brought our dogs with us as he advertised his property as pet friendly, but then he kept most of our security deposit as he claimed that he found dog poop in the house, which was impossible as our dogs are all house trained. Sorry to leave a negative review but I have to be honest and warn any future renters so they know what to expect. We had a nice vacation in spite of Ken.
In my 10 years of renting my vacation home I have never experienced people that lied on their application just to get their 5-6 dogs in my rental. When I confronted them with a copy of the rental agreement they signed stating they had NO PETS they blamed their 88 year old grandmother for the LIES on the signed agreement and then refused to pay the very small fee of $3.50 per day. With 5-6 dogs left alone in the house in the heat of the summer for a week left the house smelled like a kennel. When I reported this to VRBO I offered to provide photos of the dogs crape on my carpet and pee on the front of my new couch. VRBO returned a portion of their security deposit to make up for their LIES on their agreement. Maybe they didn’t know I lived next door and that they would get caught sneaking so many dogs in the house and not AT LEAST providing kennels for them to sleep in. These dogs were left free to wander throughout the house in the heat of the day, all day every day for 7 days while the owners were out. Their hair and smell still lingers in my home. When you live with so many dogs I think you just get use to the smell. It is just a smell I don’t want in my house and I think we just got off to a very bad start when I confronted them with a copy of the agreement telling me “THEY HAD NO PETS”. The 3 “lofts” are described very well in my VRBO web site. The refrigerator is a normal size two door. No refrigerator will hold enough food to feed 20 people for a week. Be serious! I do advertise the house as being pet friendly with a “VERY SMALL FEE of $3.50 per day”. I just expect people to be more honest and tell the truth when I asked if they have any pets. In this case they just LIED saying, “they had NO pets” and then they showed up with 5-6 dogs resulting in their mess being left in my house and on the decks. It was not a pretty sight when they finally left. Heaters work fine when turned on to “heat” and not “cool”. Running the heater only caused the upstairs “lofts” to get warm. This was the 4th of July week and 85 degrees outside which only increased the odors from huge # of dogs. My security deposit is there to protect me from people like this who say “NO PETS” then show up with 5-6 shedding crap factories.
Large house and yard. Clean and equipped with everything we needed. Owner very nice and helpful with tips for activities around town. Would definitely go back again!
It was a pure pleasure having this family stay at my rental. Great people and treated my home very well, would like for them to return.
