About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Please check our calendar on this site for availability. You must be 30 years or older to rent the property.

Bring your family and friends to this spacious home. Each level of the house has beautiful waterway and mountain views. Enjoy the private dock for your boat, water toys, and fishing. Whether you go kayaking on the beautiful canals of the Keys or just have a relaxing dinner on the deck you will enjoy this unforgettable vacation.

The home features a fully equipped kitchen, dining room with seating for twelve, and great room with a fireplace and 62'' plasma TV. Picture windows and doors from the great room lead to a large deck with a barbecue and seating for six. The den also has a fireplace and a 60'' plasma TV with french doors that lead to the lower deck with a private hot tub. The house is located at the end of a quiet street. We have parking for two cars in driveway and room for one car in the garage.

This home has two large decks to watch the boats go by all day long. We have a dock that can easily moor two boats and still leave room to fish. The waterway is wide enough that you do not feel closed in. We have a nice sized fenced yard with grass and plenty of shade. The house is at the end of the street and this cuts down on noise greatly. At night you can sit on the deck and star gaze. My favorite thing is early in the morning I get my coffee and watch the geese fly in and land on the water. Then I take the boat out and watch the hot air balloons flying over the lake. When I return the gang is up and ready to hit the water. That is a perfect start to a summer day at our lake house.

The local Marina is offering rental boats and personal watercraft, charter fishing, hot air ballooning over the lake, and Emerald Bay water excursions.

About Brian Ambrose

Our family has vacationed in South Lake Tahoe for over 35 years. We have so many fond memories in any season and there are so many recreational activities in and around this town. That alone makes each visit exciting and fresh.

Brian Ambrose purchased this house in 2009

Why Brian Ambrose chose Tahoe Keys

We decided Tahoe was a memory maker and the time was right to buy a home for our extended family. The size and layout of this house and its lot placement is great. We decided right then it was perfect over all the other homes we had toured and stayed in over the years. It has a warm mountain feel and plenty of space for our family and guests. With a fun and interesting floor plan that is nothing like our home in Los Angeles. We wanted a home that was unique and different with plenty of light and open beam wood work. With views of the mountains, we ended up getting a view of the Heavenly Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brian, I think you and your wife have done a wonderful job of making everyone who rents your home feel welcome and have all the comforts of a fine resort at our finger tips.

All the "toys" were wonderful. We are ready to go out and buy kayaks! Even when it was a little scary out on the lake on a windy day, we had great fun. The kitchen was complete with everything we needed. We brought paper plates to cut down on dirty dishes, but did have two wonderful "formal" dinners using the pretty dishes you have. It was just a wonderful week and enjoyed by all.

Wonderful house for a great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family vacation, and everyone- from ages 20’s up to the 70’s loved this house and our Tahoe trip. The house itself is even nicer than the pictures- a beautiful great room /kitchen, a great master suite, and three very pleasant bedrooms + den downstairs. Great deck with a big grill and lots of loungers and chairs. Plenty of extra pillows. blankets, and towels, and all the dishes and kitchen stuff you could ask for.

The dock was fantastic- we had a blast tooling around the canals in the kayaks, pedal boats and aqua cycles. There are a bunch of bikes and we rode to Pope Beach and out to lunch several days. We went on fantastic hikes, took a lunch cruise around Emerald Bay, rode the gondola up to the top of Heavenly Mtn, and had many good dinners & lunches out.

The location was perfect for us- not too remote, so convenient to bike paths and restaurants and town, but tucked away in a pretty neighborhood that was perfect for morning walks.

I want to especially mention how great Brian (the owner) was to work with. I contacted him before our trip and he responded with many wonderful recommendations for hikes, marinas, dinner, lunch and breakfast locations. I emailed him during our trip with some random questions and he responded super quickly, and was just very friendly and wanted our family to have a great trip- which we did! I would book this house again in a heartbeat. Thanks Brian & family!

It felt like home away from home!

The water toys were our favorite and it was close to many different things. Everyone caught fish at Angora Lake, grandkids first time fishing! Highly recommend

Everything you could wish for in a house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the house with our whole family to celebrate my birthday. It had every conceivable supply and entertainment from our toddler to the 70year old. The boats available for use were lots of fun and the outdoor pool at the neighborhood center was just what we wanted.

Great house. Great location. Great rental.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and my sisters family of 3 had an amazing week in Lake Tahoe while staying at this house. There was plenty of room for all of us and it had everything we needed to enjoy a comfortable, relaxing week. The owner, Brian, gave us some great hiking recommendations and was a pleasure to rent from. We'll definitely rent this house again when we go back to Tahoe.

So Wonderful we didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Our son wanted to meet us in Lake Tahoe for Mother's Day weekend as he and his wife live in Reno NV & we live in Los Angeles. We decided we wanted a to rent a home so we could all be together. There were six of us. So happy we decided on Brian's Rental. First of all the home is huge, so beautiful, very clean, well maintained and comfortable. If you walk into the house from the garage you are on the lower level that has 3 bedroom, family room with TV and video games (good for kids) exit to lower deck which has a Jacuzzi. Lower level also had 1 full bath and one shower bathroom. If you enter the main door you are greeted with this beautiful stairway. Upstairs is the Master bedroom which is very large with a comfortable bed and pillows, includes a master bath. There is a separate powder room, very large kitchen, dining room and living room. Wall to wall windows with a View of the Keys. We had all these plans to do things but we never left the house, only to go to the grocery store which is only 5 minutes away. We ate every meal there. Everything is available to cook with including a barbecue grill outside on the upper deck. We played games, fished off the dock, went into the Jacuzzi. It was too cold to use any of the water toys this house provides but maybe next time. Brian also would check on us via text to see if everything is going well. We would definitely stay here again. We had a fabulous time.
