Fantastic Stay! Beach/ Views/ Location/ Owner

  • 5 of 5

Very nice stay. Great relaxing place. The deck with the filtered sunlight was incredible.

Great balance between being up high for the best views, with a very easy short walk to your private beach and shared dock. Felt very private.

This is not a new luxury home, for which we did not want. Has a nice rustic feel, but with an updated kitchen.

The kitchen has granite counters (kitchen picts online are not current). Huge modern fridge. The chef with us commented on the great knives and exhaust vent.

Easy access off of 89, with a short hop to Emerald Bay (recommend the Eagle Falls Lake hike), or to the north, Tahoe City, with some neat restaurants along the way.

The owner Dave was great to work with, and was very accommodating. Thanks for the kayak!

Beautiful beach, great owner

  • 4 of 5

Dave is probably the most conscientious and accommodating owner we have encountered. Checked in repeatedly to make sure we were enjoying our stay, was on call to provide hike and restaurant suggestions, even offered us a free night (which we unfortunately could not use). House is on a spectacular spot, with a stunning beach and dock. The use of kayaks and paddle boards were also a big plus. Impossible not to have fun here. The only negatives are minor--the furniture and decor are very dated (which such a commanding water view from the master, why cover it with such tacky drapes?), the lighting harsh and cheap. (A small investment could really make this place incredible). But those are nitpicks---we truly had a great time!

Beautiful Views and Very Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Tahoe for many years and was interested in heading back there with my wife, our young daughter and our two dogs (who love the mountains). I searched for quite a while on VRBO/Homeaway to find a house with spectacular views that was also pet friendly. This house was the best choice, at least from the pictures. Leading up to my booking, the owner was very responsive and helpful regarding answering my questions and providing clarifications when needed. He was even more helpful during our stay.

When we arrived at the house, the views did not disappoint and looked identical to the pictures. The house is charming and has a rustic/cabin type of feel - it is not a luxury new construction. Don't let that fool you though - it was completely stocked with anything you would ever need in terms of the kitchen but also has the right amount of furniture and arrangements to comfortably sleep many more than just the three of us. The house does have a lot of stairs inside of the house and also down to the beach, but we are young and didn't mind that. There are amazing views from most of the rooms and the master bedroom and bathroom are quite large.

The private beach below the house is an amazing asset and we were happy that our daughter and dogs could frolic there and enjoy the beautiful lake and views.

The location is ideal overlooking Rubicon Bay, which has the prettiest water colors in my opinion. It is close to South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City and we spent more time in Tahoe City because 89 South was unexpectedly closed due to construction.

The only negative was that (in June - Sep 2016), the yellow jackets (wasps) have taken over much of the Sierras and Lake Tahoe. If you went outside with any food (sugar or protein), you would be instantly swarmed by large amounts of them. To be fair, this is not the fault of the house or owner, but something that occurred in the area and built up this summer. Many national forest campers had to completely abandon their campsites this year - it was that bad. We couldn't do much hiking because of the yellow jacket problem and didn't get to enjoy the house deck/views as much as we would have liked. The owner did have wasp traps setup around the property and gave us a credit for the issue, which we really appreciated, even though it wasn't his fault at all. Again, this was a Tahoe wide problem but it ruined many people's vacations.

We will stay in this house again in the future, for sure.

Spectacular lakefront setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacularly sited property perched lakefront about 60 feet above the shore. The master bedroom and living room look out on the view through walls of glass, and a large comfortable deck faces the water, where a kayak is available to use. The setting is quiet and peaceful, but well-located, within a short drive of great hiking, lakefront restaurants, and small groceries. The kitchen is well-equipped. The owner is very available and responsive. I spent great summer week here, gathering with my bi-coastal family.

Gorgeous views with private beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property for a winter getaway with our 2 dogs and it was the perfect spot! You can't ask for better views!! In the winter it is very quiet and secluded which was just what we wanted. While it does feel secluded there are many great restaurants nearby that we enjoyed and we also snowboarded at Kirkwood which was very close and had probably the best views from any mountain in Tahoe! It was awesome to have direct access to the private beach by just walking down the steps and that the beach was pet friendly. The kitchen was well equipped and we found markets close by to pick up groceries and be able to cook at the house. The owner was easy to get in contact with and very accommodating and didn't give us time frames for check in or check out by a certain time which was very nice. I would highly recommend this property and we will be returning because we loved it. Overall we had an incredible experience renting this property!
