Great cozy space with plenty of group hangout space and access to private beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay last weekend. Two fridges, open kitchen/dining/living floor plan made hanging out and watching kids easy.

Access to private beach area down the road walking distance was a special treat as well. You can see the lake from the house which is nice.

Decor is a bit confusing (multiple personalities reflecting we guessed different family members), but amenities were all there and we had a comfortable stay overall. The two “lockout units” offer great privacy, though the smaller one and throughout the house in general not good sound proofing against crying babies and loud kids :)

PS The bunk room is tiny!

Also watch out for sharp nails underneath the coffee table in the living room if you’ve got crawling babies**

Overall we had a great time. Blessed with 3” fresh snowfall too :)

Excellent house.

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for our group of 14. I was concerned beforehand that the common areas might not be large enough to handle a group that big, especially the kitchen, but it was no problem. I was pleased to discover that there were two separate refrigerators to handle all the food. For dining, we used the table plus the chairs at the counter. The house was very clean and in good repair. I appreciated that the kitchen was very well organized, and stocked with everything you'll need in the way of cooking tools, plates, glassware, mugs, etc.. The bunk room upstairs is small, so maybe best for children, although we had teens in there.

A Real Gem in Dollar Point

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay at in Lake Tahoe. Very convenient to Tahoe City, Kings Beach, the Lake itself and amenities of the community association.

Also the house itself is great for large family gatherings... We celebrated my mom's 65th birthday here and it was perfect. My sister and I with a total of 4 young kids stayed upstairs where there are three bedrooms (one is a perfect kids room with bunkbeds) and a big bathroom, while my other sister stayed in one of the attached but private suites. This allowed her and her partner to be able to get away from the noise of 4 kids very easily. There was another, similar unit that we didn't use, but which next time would be perfect for my brother & his wife for the same reason - privacy!

My mom stayed in the bedroom on the main floor - which she loved b/c she was in the action with the grandkids in the open concept kitchen / living / dining room (with huge family size dining table) that opened up onto the BIG, BEAUTIFUL deck which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

Owners were friendly, communicative and accessible and have the house stocked with everything a person could need.

House was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Instructions for departure were straightforward.

Added bonus - great "bear" theme throughout (although my 20 month old niece was very suspicious of the 5' tall bear by the fireplace)!

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for helping us give my mom her "best birthday, ever!"

Lewis Family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with family in this home. Two words, best describe it - comfortable and convenient. Since we had six children under the age of 8, the convenience of walking to the lake was very important. The private beach was not crowded and we appreciated the chairs, umbrellas, restrooms, and picnic area available to us. The kids loved exploring among the rocks and fishing for crawdads off the pier. The home itself was well-stocked with everything we needed. The large deck was a favorite for meal times and the living area was large enough for us all to gather in the evening. A grocery store is conveniently located nearby. We enjoyed walking through Tahoe City and making the short drive to Squaw Valley. The property managers are easy to work with. We will definitely keep this property in mind for a future visit.

Perfect for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect choice for our week long family reunion and vacation! The location was great, right across the street from the lake and just a 5-minute walk to the private beach/pier of Dollar Point (Tahoe City). The home comes with access to Dollar Point amenities such as the private beach, pool, tennis courts, etc. The home is perfect for multi-families with a large 4 bedroom house (including a room with 4 bunk beds - perfect for kids!) and 2 additional "apartments" (bedroom/bathroom) with separate entrances for those who want extra privacy. The house is well stocked with plenty of kitchen supplies and even a bedrail for the top bunk. The deck is huge and includes lake views!

The property management of this rental gives A+ service. In a family emergency, they were so gracious and worked with us to make our trip perfect. We really enjoyed all aspects of this house and plan to return in the future!
