Why Tom chose Tahoe Keys

After visiting South Lake Tahoe over many years, I fell in love with the area. Tahoe Keys is one of the nicest communities on the South Shore and has so much to offer year round. Awestruck upon seeing South Lake Tahoe for the first time in 1862, Mark Twain uttered, “It must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords.” I call it a slice of heaven and tell people my blood pressure drops by 15 points upon arrival.

Best home in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Tom's Lake Tahoe home for our snowboard trip. As always, the house is very clean and well kept. The kitchen has everything one needs to prepare dinner and baking deserts. It's in great location, close to everything. We really enjoy staying here during winter break so the girls (my daughters and nieces) can go snowboard during the day and ice skating at the Village at night. Thank you Tom for letting us use your home. Hopefully we can return this summer.

A quiet easy location very close to the Tahoe Keys Marina!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect setting for my 87 year old parents, who have limited mobility. We wanted to take them for a Tahoe summer vacation to an easily mobile, one-story location near the water. We were not disappointed and the owner was quite accommodating, considering my father was only two weeks post-surgery and we weren't completely certain that the trip could be made. Everything worked out just fine and this was a perfect location for everything we needed. Four of us stayed in this house although it could have easily accommodated our grandchildren and others. The space was open and clean, fully equipped with everything we needed for barbecuing, cooking and having a central location to meet up with my daughter who lives and works in Tahoe. We were even able to get my father onto a friend's boat by "borrowing" the neighbor's dock....the rear of the home faces one of the many dock locations within the Tahoe Keys.

My husband and I took advantage of the bicycles and helmets, riding each day throughout the Keys, into the marina to rent kayaks and onto the nearby trailhead to the quiet beach.

Winter or summer, we always enjoy staying away from the Stateline craziness as we are not gamblers....😉? and this location is perfectly accessible to everything in SLT... We will be back for either summer or winter in the future and definitely recommend this well-equipped, spacious home to anyone searching for this type of setting. You can't go wrong! Thanks again for everything... we really enjoyed our stay!

Tahoe Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great neighborhood in the Tahoe South shore, Tahoe Keys. The cabin was clean, good amenities, I liked how the cabin owner had silverware / glasses / plates / pots / pans available for the renter to use. The home did have a deck with table, BBQ and outdoor fireplace. Plenty of room for adults and kids to sleep, the kids did like the bunk beds. Also being able to to use private beach was great, it saved us on some days from packing up early in the morning just to get a parking spot at another crowed beach. I would defiantly stay here again.

Fully Equiped house, cozy & comfortable perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tom for letting us use your home, it was perfect. We really appreciate you keeping the kitchen stocked we were able to find every utensil we needed for cooking. We also enjoyed the bikes and the easy access to the water for kayaking. It really is a beautiful spot there. There were also chairs, helmets, bikes & a nice big garage. Very close to the bike trail and water access just steps away. The outdoor fireplace was really nice too.

Fun in the snow

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect size for my four kids and parents. We were 10 minutes from playing in the snow and my parents were 10 minutes from the casinos. The house was clean, comfortable and in the perfect location. We had a really nice time. Thanks Tom.
