Lovely home on the hills over Rubicon Bay

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at the house a number of times and have enjoyed it every single time. Sylvia Gates is a great owner/host and everything is in order every time we arrive, and Sylvia is pro-active about making sure you have all the information you need to get in, understand, and use what the home makes available. We visit in the summer, and so take advantage of the beach access (to a shared beach with other owners) and the kayak and paddle board. The kitchen is generally well equipped and we ate in for most of our meals. There is excellent internet connection in the house and excellent cell coverage. And the view is spectacular. There is a nearby main road with occasional traffic noise, but we didn't notice it at all, and the home very comfortably accommodated our family group of five, with room to spare.

Amazing views and everything we needed provided!

  • 5 of 5

Besides the obvious views that were amazing of the lake, we also were very comfortable having everything we needed provided. Kitchen was fully equipped and setup with spices and extra condiments. Bathrooms had all toiletries. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

Great location! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Minutes from Homewood, this open and inviting home was a great base for two families to enjoy winter in Lake Tahoe. Close to snow play areas as well, and easy distance to both chill North and energetic South LakeTahoe, I can easily see coming back here again.

Cheerful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and spacious, clean and cheerful. We loved having a view of the lake. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was really well stocked and appliances worked great. We also liked that we could walk out our door and hike up the hill to some fun trails. At first look, it seemed like the beach was far away, but it only took a few minutes to get there and it was one of the nicest beaches I've been to in Tahoe. The people were super friendly, there were no rocks and it was in great condition. We definitely want to come back!

Great home on Rubicon Bay

  • 5 of 5

I and my family live in the Boston area, but I grew up in California and we come to Tahoe, and Rubicon Bay specifically, every summer. The house has everything we are looking for and we had a great time. The house comfortably sleeps our entire group (which varies from 4 to 7 depending on who joins), has a spectacular view of the lake, and all the facilities we are looking for, including a very well equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, great internet connectivity, a great cable TV package (we caught all the olympics), grill, etc., and everything's in great shape. The upper floor has an open floor plan that works great for our group, and the downstairs bedrooms include a lower deck with a hot tub. Beach access is great, and includes use of two kayaks, but if you don't want to drive down from the house it is a 15 minute walk (and uphill on the way back.) The owner is very responsive and easy to deal with. We had a great time and are already planning to come back in the future.

The photos don't do the home justice

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a long weekend to host a family reunion and 60th birthday celebration for my sister. My nephew and his wife got to the home first and he called me to say the home was "awesome." The views of Lake Tahoe from the deck were spectacular. We had rented another home to have more bedrooms, but this was the gathering place as the kitchen, dining, living room were all open so everyone could be in the same place. The walk to beach was about 15 minutes, and the beach was beautiful, but we learned it was a rather strenuous walk because of the hills, but there was parking. However, there is no air conditioning. We were there in the heat of July so it was a little warm, but it cooled off in the evenings for good sleeping. I would definitely go back here.
