About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

A little bit about the property. We are not a traditional rental, but rather a family home that we rent when we can't use the house ourselves. We have high end furnishings, chef's kitchen, nice linens, expensive AV/home theatre equipment and lots of toys in the garage. We are best for families with kids vs. groups of young adults looking to party. We do not offer ski lease or any long terms rentals longer than 2 weeks.

The property was built in 1996 and fully renovated in 2008. The house has 4 bedrooms (cal king and queen upstairs and downstairs has a queen and bunks for 4). There are 3 full bathrooms - 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs. In addition to the 2 bedrooms, the downstairs has a theatre room with bar, fridge, sink, foldout couch for two, fireplace 63' plasma TV, Playstation 4, DVD, AppleTV, surround sound. Also downstairs is 2 car garage with pool table, ping pong and dartboard.

In addition to the 2 bedrooms, upstairs has a kitchen/great room that includes a dining table for 10, a fully stocked chef's kitchen with high end stainless appliances, family room with 52' LED TV, DVD, AppleTV, surround sound.

Also upstairs are 2 decks - Front deck has 4 comfy adirondack style chairs. Rear deck offers 8 person hot tub, large gas BBQ and outdoor sectional sofa, chaise, and dining table for 8.

The house is 2 blocks from Paige Meadows trailhead with cross country skiing, sledding, biking and hiking. This is a gorgeously decorated, very cozy home that you won't want to leave.

We are members at the Tahoe Park Beach Association, which consists of three & one half acres of land with 850 feet of lake front footage, 2 piers, boat buoys, picnic facilities, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, lawn area, playground equipment, basketball court and open space. The address is: 1700 Sequoia Avenue, Tahoe City, California, 96145. You can reserve a picnic table/bbq by stopping by the admin office at the entrance. We especially like Table #4 if its available. Buy some tackle and use bacon as bait to catch Crawdads at the piers.

Fantastic Family Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying in this beautiful mountain house. The upper floor was great; the kitchen was well equipped and the layout was perfect for working in the kitchen and still being part of the living room conversation. The fireplace was warm and we enjoyed playing our music through the built in speakers.

The house was well maintained, clean and had that upscale yet rugged and mountain-like feel to it.

The hot tub was great to soak in after our many hikes around the area. The bedrooms were very comfortable and roomy. The kids loved the bunk beds downstairs.

The house has so many great features it is hard to list them all.

Mike was a pleasure to work with and made sure the house was warm and ready when we arrived.

We ate at the house mostly and enjoyed lots of hikes in the area which we discovered in the many trail books and guides that are available in the house.

Would definitely recommend!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of finding this home last minute, as our planned vacation to Yosemite fell through due to the fires. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to this home, as the pictures do not do it enough justice. It's beautifully furnished, the details of the home are stunning, and the location is great! The home sits high up on a hill so you don't hear any road noise, yet it's just down the street (driving distance) to the Lake Tahoe Owners Association Park. Having passes to the park were such a great perk too! Private tables, lawn area, grills, playground, and pebble shores! STUNNING HOME and we hope to come back soon!


The home was equipped with plenty of towels for our group of 8 adults and 2 children. There are 2 rooms downstairs, one with a queen bed and another with 4 twin beds (2 bunk beds). Also downstairs is a sofa sleeper (we couldn't find the pump to inflate the sleeper) and an airbed (does not stay inflated). Upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms, one with a King bed along with 2 soft mattresses that can be pulled out from under the bed, and the other room has a queen bed. You will need to bring cooking spray and other essentials, however, the kitchen is fully stocked otherwise with pots, pans, etc. The master bedrooms has a ceiling fan and a box fan in the closet, but no other rooms have fans. If you are coming during the summer months, I would highly suggest bringing additional fans to help cool down the upstairs.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return and stay with us again soon! Thanks for the heads up on a few items that needed to be addressed! We will have maintenance take care of the pump for the bed, purchase some additional fans for all of the rooms, and have the cleaners re-stock any basics missing in the kitchen as we always keep olive oil, salt and pepper, spices, and cooking spray on hand.

Stunning Tahoe City House near Sunnyside

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family-6 adults, 3 kids and a toddler, recently stayed at this beautiful home in Tahoe City. We loved the floor plan-large, well appointed kitchen open to family room with big screen TV, 2 decks, one including a large hot tub, high end BBQ and very comfortable outdoor furniture, 4 beautiful bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kids (and my son!) loved the downstairs family room with the large TV and access to movies and play station. Additionally, having 2 of the bedrooms down there provided plenty of privacy. The location is perfect, near Sunnyside, and we enjoyed having access to the private lakefront beach within a short drive. There are also trails for hiking/mountain biking near the house. Michael, the owner, is very gracious and easy to contact. We had a fabulous and memorable family vacation and hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: Liz, I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your time in Tahoe. We love it there too, and you guys nailed the best parts - walking access to Paige Meadows trails for hiking/mountain biking and the private Tahoe Park Beach with 2 piers, swimming, boche ball, basketball, volleyball, horseahoe pits, + 30 private bbq/picnic tables. I hope your family will return to our home this winter or next summer!

Perfect Tahoe Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We slid in between epic snow storms to this incredible house in Tahoe City. Extremely convenient to Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Homewood and Northstar, it is a skier's paradise. The house is an architectural wonder, with reclaimed barn beams and exquisite use of masonry inside and out. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms provided privacy for all. The kitchen, surrounded by a bar and the great room round out the space (oh, I forgot to mention the downstairs den). Two big screen, surround sound TVs and a hot tub on the deck, as well as a ping pong table/pool table provided all the entertainment one could want. Extremely private and easy to get to. We can't wait to come back again!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We welcome you back soon. Summer is almost better than winter, with access to private lakefront beach only 1 mile away and trails for hiking/mountain biking right from the house.

Beautiful Home on the West Shore!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time staying at this home and we would definitely go back! The layout of the home is perfect for 2-3 families with a great area for the kids and bunk room. The master suite is stunning with a wonderful jacuzzi tub. All the bedrooms were very nice with comfy beds. The back deck is big with a great hot tub, high-end BBQ and very comfortable outdoor seating. Upon entering the home, it is clear the owners have carefully curated the furnishings and it is truly luxurious. The kitchen is open to the main room and well stocked. The location is perfect with a short drive to Sunnyside and Tahoe City. We spend a lot of time in Tahoe every summer and winter and this is by far the best rental home we've stayed in.
