About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

The Sierra's offer so much beauty, let the mountains restore your soul.

Summer is around the corner - the heated pool is open - the hiking trails call - the Lake is waiting...come on up.

Play in the mountains and spend the day exploring - or stick around the condo and enjoy a more relaxed time close to home.

Our downstairs 3-bedroom condo is one of the closest to the hot tub…nothing like a hot tub in the snow.

Our place is a prime location for all of your mountain and lake activities and has many of the things you want while escaping the daily grind. We offer:

-Heated pool & hot tub just steps from the front door.

- an open area outside the front door where kids can play.

-a quick drive to stateline/casinos (one mile away from the casinos.)

- the condo complex has a very family friendly environment.

- peaceful atmosphere where you may rejuvenate.

- a 10 minute walk to the Lake

We are going into our 7th year of self management and like it that way. It allows us to have more control over things like being as green as possible, we believe in doing our part to help keep the environment in balance. We are doing small things like using biodegradable cleaning products on all the linens and using refillable dispensers throughout the place. We love using the awesome products by EO and we hope to make a small contribution to mother earth and inspire others to do the same.

By managing our own place, we also enjoy personal connection with our renters and pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want you to feel like you've arrived home when you get to our place!

We purchased our place in 2010, and did a mini-makeover to bring in the colors and accents that reflect the beauty & peace of the mountains.

Because it's an older building, it is truly solid and when the kids are in the back bedroom laughing and playing, you can enjoy the peace and quiet in the kitchen or dining room.

Our downstairs condo has a full kitchen - everything you need to make a delicious meal or perfect cup of joe. The openness of the kitchen, living room and dining room appeals to sense of community and family/friends hanging out and enjoying one another.

The master bedroom has a bath that sports a 60’s retro-tiled shower. The hall bath has a bathtub.

We have a small library of books for leisure reading and games for kids - big and small.

All the bedding & linens are included.

The lake is just a 10-minute walk from our front door and City Bus/Shuttle service is right down the street. You may walk to several different restaurants - including the best bakery in town - The Suger Pine Bakery.

There is plenty of parking out front.

About Jnana (prounounced Gyana)

We love the mountains. It has long been a dream of my husband's to have a place in the mountains - and a few years ago, he managed to talk me into learning how to ski. Once I found myself in and on the mountain in a whole new way, his dream became mine and we decided to find a place that we could go to as a family and a place to share with our friends. In our excitement of having this new place we’ve infused it with our appreciation of the surroundings of the astoundingly beautiful Sierra’s and now, we are throwing out a net, in hopes of finding like-minded folks that want what we want: A sweet mountain refuge. We hope you will relax, rejuvenate and be inspired when you stay at our place.

Jnana (prounounced Gyana) purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jnana (prounounced Gyana) chose South Lake Tahoe

Our place, 'Bavarian Village,' really does feel like a little village. Built in the 60's, the design of the complex alternates the exteriors structure so they are not identical creating a bit of character, setting it apart from so many cookie cutter condo complexes.

We enjoy the town of South Lake and find the people are incredibly nice and lacking the city hussle-bussle that we are accustomed to. We like it's laid back vibe and the kindness of the locals. The South Lake area has something for everybody whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, seasonal festivals, concerts, or gaming. It is close to the picturesque Emerald Bay and at least a dozen other lakes for hiking. And for winter sports, it is within 35 minutes of three ski areas and the Heavenly gondola comes right into town.

What makes this condo unique

Our downstairs unit is convenient to get in and out of. We like that we can keep an eye on our kids and our older guests don't have to hike up any stairs. It is quiet and spacious with an open floor plan so you can be in the kitchen, dining room, or the living room and not miss out on the action. Just as easily, those looking for some space can retire to one of the bedrooms in the back of the unit and get some quiet.

clean but dated

  • 3 of 5

The location of the condo was perfect. We were there for my granddaughter's soccer tournament and it was close access to all the fields she played on. The pool was right out side the door and convenient for her to swim. She had a great time.

The accommodations were clean and comfortable, but it is also extremely dated. The kitchen needs to be upgraded, especially the stove.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a good time at our place, the perfectly heated pool & location cannot be beat. As mentioned in our "condo description" on VRBO - our place has a retro-60's feel....this helps us keep things affordable so more families can enjoy the mountains.

Great location - close to Heavenly while still being quite.

  • 5 of 5

The house fits well to the purpose of our trip, as it's only about few minutes from Heavenly where we went for skiing on the next day. Parking was ample and the area was also very quite. The house is old, but well maintained and everything works just fine, kinda better than most other houses around that age. The owner is great to work with and always get back to us promptly via either phone or email. We love it overall and definitely will consider renting this condo again next time we go.

Clean, comfortable, as represented

  • 4 of 5

Ghana was responsive on getting jacuzzi fixed so we were only unable to use it the first evening. This is an older property so there is a realistic likelihood that something will not be working. Ghana was also responsive in directing us to look in the bottom of the trash can for additional liners. A good value property.

Great location - close to stateline and boating on lake

  • 5 of 5

The owner is great to work with and she will get back to you promptly. The unit is well-kept and we were able to sleep two families of four comfortably (w/3 boys sharing one room). You can also sleep on the couches, which are very comfortable (and long). Can't beat the proximity to the hot tub and the pool, which was great for our kids to keep them busy while we rested in the unit.

We were able to walk to the lake in about 10-15 minutes. There is a dock next to the CVS nearby where you can also rent boats, but they tend to sell out early.
