Why The Owner chose Tahoe Keys

We chose to buy this house because it offered amazing and unique views of the mountain peaks and an unobstructed view of the lagoon.

South Lake Tahoe offers so much in terms of the outdoor activities we enjoy, specifically hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and skiing. We also love the fact that you can experience the great outdoors while also being minutes from a lively city center and many excellent restauarants.

What makes this house unique

There are very few properties that offer the view that this home does. We enjoy many peaceful mornings, drinking coffee and admiring the view. In the summer, we often fire up the grill and enjoy BBQ's on the deck while family and friends enjoy the spacious backyard or take the kayaks out on the Lake. In the winter, we enjoy the short trip to the ski resorts as well as several nearby sledding and tubing spots.

Perfect home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to South Lake Tahoe for years but never stayed in the Keys. I can't believe we've been missing out on this magical location for so long but glad we finally made it here!

Ellick's home was incredible. It is very well taken care of, modern, equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and for recreation, and the view of the water with the backdrop of the mountains is breathtaking. We actually bypassed staying in the master bedroom and stayed in the lower level bedroom so that we could wake up to the view first thing in the morning.

The beds were very comfy and the neighborhood was quiet which made for a great night's sleep each evening. There were high definition TVs in almost every room which we very much enjoyed as most rentals don't have the best technology sometimes.

The Keys is about 6 miles from Stateline/the casinos but Uber and Lyft are readily available.

We cannot wait to return to Ellick's home in the summer and take advantage of all the water activities!

Great place with everything you will need

  • 5 of 5

Great and well stocked house. You don't need to bring a thing. Only thing we weren't aware of is beach, pool and playground access aren't included in the rental - you need to get a daily adult pass for $7. Not a big deal but worth noting. We would totally stay here again.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

We had two families at the house with kids from 2 - 6 years old. It came with kayaks and board games that the kids loved. Very clean!!! Laundry was a huge plus. We are already planning our stay at the house for next year.

Great clean home, perfect location for all activities, could not have expected anything more.

  • 5 of 5

Temp was in the high 80's during our stay so the upstairs was a bit warm but not unbearable. Cooled off at night so sitting on the upper deck was perfect. Would love to come back again in the futue. Thanks for a super vacation get away.

Get ready to relax!!!

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a great location in a quiet neighborhood with nice views of the water and mountains. The floor plan is quite functional with a good separation of space. The sofas and beds are very comfortable and the linens are super soft. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped for cooking. The bathrooms are nice with good water pressure. The laundry closet came in handy too. We did not find time to use the kayaks, beach, or other amenities offered, but hope to when we return in the future. We did enjoy lounging on the comfy patio and deck overlooking the water. This was a great choice for two couples and the home could easily accommodate another couple or 2 or 3 children. Also, the entry and exit process was very simple. Thank you Ellick for sharing your home and responding promptly throughout.
