About Lavon Bobo

The lakeside setting is so exquisite I decided the interior needed to be likewise so completely remodeled in 2009. The contractor was delighted that the result has even brought him more business. I live about four hours away so enjoy spending time there as much as possible.

Lavon Bobo purchased this townhome in 1980

Why Lavon Bobo chose Tahoe Vista

When I first stepped into the entry of this lakefront townhome, I actually gasped. Stunned by the exquisite natural setting and my proximity to it. Sitting out on the deck, the many faces of the lake are themselves ever entertaining and profoundly relaxing. One reason I have no wifi access so people can discover or re-discover the power and beauty of nature.

What makes this townhome unique

Some guests tell me that they come to Lake Tahoe for all the activities available, good restaurants, casinos and entertainment but end up spending most of their time hanging out on their own private beach or enjoying watching the activities from the deck above. More and more guests are opting for more than a week to truly enjoy all that is available.

We didn't Want To Leave

  • 5 of 5

This place offers the perfect location. You have the luxury of walking out the downstairs bedroom to the water and also the benefit of viewing the water from the living area one floor up and then the privacy of a deck on the top floor. We walked to Safeway, massages, restaurants and nail salon. Friday night free music concerts on the beach were a highlight that was also within walking distance. We hope to make this an annual vacation.

We had a great vacation. Very comfortable, the views were spectacular. Waking up every morning to the lake and snow on the mountains one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. We would definitely do it again. We managed without Wi Fi. I am use to using my laptop for cooking, did not happen. Cell phone reception was not good.

This is rare but nevertheless very annoying if you happen to be the guest at the time. I hope you were able to make use of the WiFi at Starbucks which is nearby inside Safeway market.

Ideal Vacation Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly impressed with this beautiful townhouse right on the lake! We were so excited to see we got one of the best units on this amazing property. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. It even had coffee filters and ziplock baggies:) Our favorite thing was actually spending time playing games with a beautiful view right from the living room. We loved that there was a door in the master bedroom opening up to the grassy area and that we could enjoy the sunrise from the 2 balconies. We cannot wait to come back in the summer to enjoy the private beach! You won't be disappointed if you choose to rent here...just don't take our dates!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Lavon's condo and will definitely be back. Having gone on Labor Day weekend, it was wonderful to have a private beach shared only with other condo residents/guests, rather than fight the holiday crowds at Kings Beach. We were able to just run in and out of the condo to the beach whenever we needed and the convenience and accessibility were just amazing. And Lavon was a great host as well, answering all questions extremely quickly! Thank you so much, Lavon!

Comfortable Condo. Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of four. Very clean and well appointed. The location was so convenient to North Star, Safeway and restaurants. But the kicker was the view. It's literally ON the lake. We will definitely be back in the summertime! Thank you!

Great place: cozy, spacious, with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Chateau Chamonix to celebrate the New Year. It appeared to be really spacious, three floor with a lot of room for kids to play. An amazing Lake Tahoe view right before when you look at the window or step out. Comfortable furniture, cozily-decorated rooms and a real fireplace in the main room made our celebration memorable and outstanding. Highly recommend!
