Fully remodelled late 2013, everything is brand new.

Spacious home in a quiet, woodsy residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. Enjoy the massive open living area on the top floor and the many big bedrooms downstairs.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a grill, a hot tub, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

Complimentary gift basket on arrival

Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

Not over crowded, only two people to a room

Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

No keys to lose with our digital lock

There is an open lounge room and dining area. The gas fireplace is cozy and inviting. On the other side of the kitchen is the living area with a big sectional couch and 55' HDTV with bluray home theater and playstation game console. Or take your relaxing outside on to the deck overlooking massive pine trees and mountains

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features concrete counters and a bay window looking out to the woods and mountains. All the appliances are new, a big fridge, gas range, dishwasher and microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

All the bedrooms are downstairs and they are all BIG. There is a master with a california king bed, 40' TV and its own bathroom and deck. There is another room with a california king and two rooms with queen beds, plus a full bath. All your towels and linens are provided.

The hot tub is on a ground level deck with views into the trees. We have a foos ball table for added fun.

Location is key and this is a great one. Central in town, but tucked up a hill in the woods, you are close to everything. Heavenly 8min; Sierra at Tahoe 25min; Kirkwood 45min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 10min; Shopping 10min; Golf 5min. This is a quiet residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home is surrounded by forest service land. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and was immediately smitten. In fact I moved here permanently ten years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer. My wife Angela and I feel very lucky to be able to raise our two kids in this amazing outdoor playground.

Duggan Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Duggan Smith chose Montgomery Estates

We fell into the vacation rental business in 2010 after buying a house together with my mum, so Granny would have a place to stay when visiting our kids. Its been a great combination of my passions for real estate, construction and customer service. We loved this house for its amazing location with immediate access to endless forrest, great views, the huge living area and massive bedrooms

Beautiful area, great family vacation destination

  • 3 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and one baby stayed in this home for one week and we thoroughly enjoyed the Tahoe area. There are so many outdoor activities to engage in, the landscape is beautiful, and we also enjoyed just being together in this home. It is well located in a quiet neighborhood close to the lake, shopping, biking, trails, and the resort areas. The home is laid out well with large bedrooms (4) downstairs and (3) bathrooms (2 down, 1 up). The owner offers a lot of amenities like a gift basket with snacks, thick towels, and a fully stocked kitchen (spices are there but no other staples like cooking spray, sugar, etc.). There is a 2nd frig in the garage which was great. Our deposit was quickly refunded.

When we arrived, we contacted the manager as some areas of the home were not clean and we felt we should report some other conditions so we were not charged for them at checkout. The managers responded very quickly then and to another request later in the week. The managers were wonderful to work with however the home has a few conditions renters should consider:

1. The hot tub took 9 hours to heat to the desired temperature even after the manager checked it out.

2. Several of the beds are very uncomfortable - sagging with little support. Two of us slept on a couch instead.

3. The tile floor (as shown in the picture) is installed on the entire upper floor but is not level (as in the tiles are not flat/flush leaving a very uneven surface). We could not allow our grandson to crawl lest he injure his legs and many of us had scuffed feet from hitting the tile edges while walking.

4. There is little sound barrier between the 1st & 2nd floors and every sound from the 1st floor can be heard clearly downstairs. Plan on waking when the 1st person is upstairs.

5. The deck railing is a bit wobbly (though not likely to fall) and there is an unfinished door project on the lower level.

We reported these issues to the manager who assured us they would be reported to the owner. They may be fixed by the time you read this so please inquire before discounting this nice home which was a great stay. Again, the managers were WONDERFUL and we would happily stay there again if these issues were resolved.

Quality property at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

This home is set up for a small group in a beautiful area. We needed a place for the relatives while daughter got married in Tahoe. Awesome kitchen with everything you can imagine for cooking. Large bedrooms with king and queen beds. The deposit was refunded 3 days after our stay.

Great house to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to stay at with your family. This house has an assortment of amenities that normal rentals do not. The owners think about everything that you may need when you are away from your home. I am definitely coming back to this property. We loved this house and enjoyed our stay.
