About Stefan Laursen

We are a family with 3 children, who lived in this home for 10 years before moving to Marin. We completely remodeled the home to bring it into the 21st century, which most homes in the Tahoe Keys aren't. This is our second home now and we love making it cozy and warm for our family and guests. The house has been in our family for more than 30-years.

Stefan Laursen purchased this house in 2000

Why Stefan Laursen chose Tahoe Keys

This home is not only beautiful on the outside, it is completely remodeled on the inside with luxurious finishes. It is a summer paradise for boating and swimming off the dock, hiking and biking and enjoying all that Tahoe has to offer. The back yard is large and spcious and perfect for a family soccer game. There is outside lighting to light up the entire yard and accent ligthing both on the fron and back of the house. In winter it is a warm and cozy home with a large natural gas fireplace in the living room, elegant foosball table, large screen TVs, huge gourmet kitchen with room enough for all your friends. It is 8 min drive to Heavenly Ski Resort and within 30 minutes to 3 other ski resorts.

What makes this house unique

The property is located on one of the most prestigous streets in all of Tahoe and has views of the lake and Mt. Tallac. There are 2 pools, 10 tennis courts, basketball court and gym in the Tahoe Keys community, and private beach access within 1 minutes walk from the house.

In the back yard there is classy and beautiful furniture, hammock and kayaks. There is a water slide and a 50 ft dock as well as an overwater deck with rod iron dinning table and chairs with sunbrella cushions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to thank Stefan and Jenny. Their home was a fantastic get-away for our family. We highly recommend this home for it's warm and cozy feel, for the luxury and high end finishes, and for the perfect location and setting! We had a great time and the home delivered on all fronts: Lots of space, lots of bedrooms, enormous kitchen and living room, great decks. The house was stocked with everything we needed and best of all, it didn't feel like a rental, but rather like the second home we always wished we had. We loved that the living areas were on the first floor and the bedrooms were on the second floor. This made it easy with an older couple we brought. They used the first floor bedroom, so it was easy to get in with a wheel chair. The younger kids used the bunk beds, and the couples used the huge master suite and the "mini-master suit". We had access to the pool and close proximity to skiing and restaurants. One night we even walked back to the house from a restaurant after having too many drinks. The day it snowed we watched movies on the big screen TV. There was a big yard for the kids to play in and a sledding hill nearby too. The kids loved the pool! We only had one small issue with the wireless internet, but it was fixed within 30 minutes once we notified the owner. We were very impressed with how nice everything was and how diligent the owner was in taking care of everything. This is a quality rental! We will definitely rent this home again soon!

Perfect winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely beautiful and perfect home for our ski trip. The open layout of the first floor made the home very inviting and the backyard views were stunning. We had more than enough space. Would definitely come back to see what summertime in Tahoe has to offer!

Exceptional and Beautiful Tahoe Rental - Excellent for families and foodies

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home with two families and kids of all ages. This home is immaculate, perfectly situated and well equipped. Everyone was thrilled with the home and the location - where you can walk outside and be a part of the elegance of the Tahoe Keys. We enjoyed kayaking and bikes and spending time in the backyard. The kids loved the freedom of jumping off the dock and swimming or kayaking in the peaceful waters of the keys. Everyone enjoyed the easy access to the lake - just around the corner and a 5 minute paddle. The kitchen was large and perfect for people who love to cook - with every accessory and especially the excellent and professional griddle. Anything you could need was there and we cooked each day - enjoying the views and then the backyard for eating. This is a home to be enjoyed by all - each space perfectly considered and useful. The home is large enough so that all of us could enjoy togetherness but not feel on top of each other. We would recommend this home to anyone!

One of our best family vacations! Great home, wonderful amenities, can't wait to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this house and are already planning on renting it again for our next summer in Tahoe!

This has been one of our best family vacations and the house and its amenities and location was a big part of it. The house is very nice inside and out, very clean and had lots of towels, extra pillows and lots of toys (bikes, kayaks, paddle boards etc.). It even came with a bunch of life vests for kids and adults. The furniture was new and very nice, the kitchen is professional grade with everything we needed to celebrate my mothers 75 year birthday. The kids loved the hot tub and waterslide. My husband enjoyed fishing off the dock and I loved the privacy of sunning on the master deck. There was plenty of seating for everyone on the house and on the decks and in the yard and on the over water deck. I can safely say that we will be renting this house again next summer.

Very nice home on the water

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by this house when we booked it online and we were not disappointed with our stay. It is very clean and and very nice and has a lot of great features and rooms. Lots of extras, like bikes, paddle boards, kayaks etc. Even a foosball table in the living room. We really liked the posturepedic bed and the very nice kitchen and master bath. Lots of decks and nice furniture too. The best part was being right on the water and being able to have our 40 ft boat on the dock.

Great house and location. Home was great if you have allergies.

  • 5 of 5

Great home with top notch amenities, location, and construction. I am EXTREMELY allergic to cats and have had a hard time at some other VBRO homes. Not here! No Cats or allergens. I slept like a baby and woke up with no sniffles or sore throat. The home and kitchen were great too. The kids loved the Foosball when it was raining outside, and we all loved the boating when the sun came out.

The house is located on the water on the lagoon side of Beach Drive. The community beach is less than 100 yards from the house and there are 6 large public beaches within 5 minutes drive of the house. The Tahoe Keys Community has 10 tennis courts, volley ball court, basket ball court, indoor and outdoor pools and the marina has shops and a great restaurant. There are 4 golf courses within 10 minutes drive of the house and the Heavenly ski resort is just 8 minutes away. The Gondola is a great all year attraction and so is the Heavenly Village with all the shops as well as the casino area with entertainment.
