About Maria Tarn

Bob is a mechanical engineer and Maria is a paralegal. They enjoy their family gatherings at the lake, and hope that their 3 sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson will continue to use the house at Zephyr for their family gatherings for many, many years to come.

Maria Tarn purchased this house in 1993

Why Maria Tarn chose Lake Tahoe South East Shore NV

We spent a family vacation at Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe, in the summer of 1991, and fell in love with the family-oriented and clean environment. Before we left that week, we were looking at property, and bought this perfect vacation home after a year and a half of searching for the right property. We hope to retire here one day. In the meantime, maintaining and improving the property is our labor of love.

Beautiful home on Lake Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

My party of 15 stayed at this wonderfully located home in Zephyr Cove on Lake Tahoe. The house was clean, comfortable, well stocked an a short distance from anything we wanted to do or see. The home is a stones throw from Zephyr Cove's beautiful beach located right on the lake (we all made several short walking trips per day!). Maria was such a pleasure to work with in securing this rental. I would recommend this spot for anyone looking to vacation at Lake Tahoe!

Best Owner We Ever Worked With

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family reunion and it was perfect. We have 2 families with 5 children and they enjoyed the basement where the parents had rooms of their own and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds and couch in the "playroom" where they could also play pool and watch TV. The rest of us enjoyed the main floor where baby and toddler could get more sleep in a quieter area. The house had every amenity we could imagine and the most well-stocked kitchen that we've ever enjoyed. Every pot and pan size and type was available for use. Plenty of room for us all to eat inside although with perfect summer weather we enjoyed eating outside on the deck as well. Location was also perfect with an easy walk to beach and Zephyr Cove fun so we didn't have to pay for parking when we enjoyed the area. With many hiking trails nearby, the many attractions at Heavenly Village, and even casinos just 10 minutes away, there was lots to do for everyone in our group. We wish we had planned to stay longer but we know that we'll make use of this location for future vacations. Best of all was how easy it was to work with Maria. She answered phone calls and e-mails promptly, usually within an hour. Pleasant and enjoyable to talk to, she made it easy to ask questions and get information as needed. The security deposit was returned within a week of mailing out the keys. We look forward to future visits to this home and highly recommend it for anyone looking to stay in the South Tahoe area.

Great home for families and couple!

  • 5 of 5

We choose this home because it has 5 queen size beds (as well as 4 twins) and a large deck. This enabled couples to sleep comfortably plus have room for singles in the group. Others in our party rented the house next door, and we could all gather on our exterior deck. We brought in extra chairs and tables. Everything in the house worked fine and was clean and well organized. The owner was easy to work with and gave me excellent suggestions as I planned the catering from cross-country. Deposit was returned in a timely manner. It was a great experience! Thank you!

This House Has Everything

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a big family gathering for a wedding. It was perfect for us. Maria made it easy for us to collect the keys and return them. She was also excellent about answering questions and communicating before we rented. There are 3 nice bedrooms on the main level, and 2 downstairs, and also a large family room with bunk beds, TV's, games, etc. The family favorite was the hot tub out on the deck off the kitchen/dining room. One of the bedrooms also has a sliding door out to the hot tub. There is a washer/dryer and also an extra fridge and freezer out in the garage. There were 3 bathrooms and plenty of hot water, nice towels, good sheets, etc. The kitchen was well-equipped. The house was very clean. After we returned the keys, we received our cleaning deposit back very quickly and completely. We would rent this place again and also highly recommend it to anyone who needs a rental in this area. It was convenient for Nevada Beach, Zephyr Cove, and that area but also not difficult to go to areas south of the casinos.

Great place to stay with a large group

  • 5 of 5

Marie and Scott were married overlooking Emerald Bay on Lake Tahoe on 11-11-11 at 11:11! We decided to do something special because we think each other is special. So was this cabin and the owners the Tarns. We had two large families to accomodate and the Tarns took care of us with one of our two huge rentals. The one at Zephyr cove fit the bill for three families with lots of kids. The bunk beds were downstairs allowing the kids to make as much noise as they wanted without disturbing the 'rents' . They mostly were not heard because there was so much activity in the room for all of the kids to keep them occupied that was already part of the rental. TV, books, games etc...The house had internet which was really important when we needed to find a hair salon fast! The Location was perfect because we boarded everyone on the Tahoe Queen for a dinner cruise and it was right across the street! The families walked across the street and played on the beach and had agreat time. Thanks Maria we will be back!

Another great time at Zephyr Cove

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful choice for a great time at Tahoe. The proximity to so many fun places is a huge advantage. A short walk to the Zephyr Cove Resort area saves having to pay for parking and you can enjoy the beach and all of its amenities without ever getting in a car. The Mai Tais on the beach are so good. It is only a short drive to Stateline with the casinos and all that . The house is clean, large and has everything that you to have a perfectly relaxing time, even if you just want to flake out for days at a time.Well priced, this a value for any number of reasons. We have spent 6 holidays here and look forward to many more. The Owners are friendly and if there was ever anything needed it has been handled immediately, whatever that might have been was minor. Wonderful spot in a fantastic locale.
