Also as of JULY 1, 2017 Douglas County Nevada has increased the occupancy tax from 13% to 14%. We try to keep costs down but have to pass along as they increase.

Why Dean & Diana Smith chose Lake Tahoe South East Shore NV

Lake Tahoe! What more needs to be said? If you have not experienced Lake Tahoe, you are missing world class golf, snowboarding, snow and water skiing, and summer water activities. An old volcano of fresh blue water, Lake Tahoe is surrounded by beautiful mountains in a quiet yet vibrant community. The California and Nevada side of Lake Tahoe each has their own unique qualities and charm.

What makes this house unique

We are actually 400 yards from Zephyr Cove Beach & Resort! Yes you can walk to the beach from our home. Clean air, beautiful scenery, biking, hiking, kayaking, while also enjoying outstanding dining and entertainment venues. If we want quiet seclusion or a fun night out, Zephyr Cove in South Lake Tahoe Nevada is the perfect location. OUR VIRTUAL TOUR LINK BELOW! 360 VIEWS OF OUR LOVELY HOME

Lovely Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with 10 other girls for my bachelorette party and we had a blast! The house is beautiful and fit us all with more then enough room. The 4 bathrooms were essential! The master suite is a wonderful as everyone said with a lovely view! The one thing I wish I would have known is that yes the beach is within walking distance but you have to walk down the side of a pretty busy road to get there so don't expect to walk out and just frolick down to the beach. Of course you could drive down there too. Super close to heavenly village which was great as well. Overall 5 stars for sure and I would definitely stay here again!

Exactly as adverised. Great Vacation House close to Zephyr Cove.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and comfortable. Great views. You can walk to Zephyr Cove beach. no need to drive anywhere once you settle in. There are a lot of stairs and you can only park two cars, but it was not an issue for us. We did not experience any problems with the house and felt that the communication with the owners was excellent. I just showed up and everything was ready to go, very easy. We did not bring dogs but the cabin looks like it is very pet friendly. There is plenty of room for a large group. We had 7 and had space for a few more. We never felt crowded.

Nice House Great Location to Zephyr Cove Lake Area

  • 4 of 5

Very nice rental. We stayed for a week and enjoyed the surrounding area. It was the first time we stayed at Zephyr Cove. We usually drove to the lake and set up for the day. (9am) Get there early - this beach gets pretty busy. The restaurant has an excellent breakfast. We also got lunch at the Sunset Bar & Grill that is right up from the beach- the food and drinks were excellent ! We did walk down to the beach one time for a sunset. The walk is short, but steep downhill and you have to walk on Highway 50. Walking back up is quite a trek. Just so you are aware small kids or elderly would not want to make this walk. The house is nice- clean upon arrival- parking is an issue if you have more then 3 cars- lots of stairs, but you get used to them. The guest house is an added bonus to renting this property. I would bring an umbrella or pop up for the deck. We were there while it was very warm 80's- you can not sit out on the deck during the day- too hot! Once it cools off you can enjoy the sunset on the deck. They do have fans in side of the house- you will need them! We did bring our dog- just to be aware that the only exit to the back yard is through one of the middle bedrooms. It can disturb someone if they are sleeping and you need to put the dog out- so make sure you put someone in this room that won't mind. The bedrooms are all spacious. The upstairs suite is spectacular! Overall this is a nice location and I would recommend this home.

Almost perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the proximity to the lake! Parking was extremely limited; you can only get one car in the garage and one sideways in front of the garage. Otherwise, we'd give it 5 stars.

Amazing Property/Location

  • 5 of 5

I knew from the minute I booked that this was going to be a great place to stay. Dean and Diana responded promptly to every question I had and made sure the process went smoothly. Their instructions were very easy to follow and I enjoyed working with them.

I stayed here with some girlfriends and we could not get over how awesome this property was. All of the bedrooms were nice and comfortable, ESPECIALLY the master bedroom. The kitchen had everything we needed and was very spacious. It definitely exceeded our expectations.

Also, the location was perfect. We were able to walk from the property to Zephyr Cove beach which made us enjoy our time that much more. I can't wait to come back soon!
