About Jenny & Ray Monteiro

Ray & Jenny met, married and raised their family in the Bay Area. Then relocated to El Dorado County in 2004 to enjoy the rural lifestyle there and to be closer to their home in South Lake Tahoe!

Jenny & Ray Monteiro purchased this house in 1997

Why Jenny & Ray Monteiro chose Tallac Village

We fell in love in South Lake Tahoe and vacationed here for many years before deciding to purchase this home. We have improved the house every year by upgrading or changing decor. Last year, we put in a new front lawn and sprinklers. The year before we put in new carpet and tile. Every year its something new!

What makes this house unique

We like the older style look of this house. It just has character. We were told an Admiral in the Navy built the dining room, kitchen & bedrooms upstairs. We think other rooms were added along with the garage. It has some Tahoe history, I'm sure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what an amazing trip my family had! We made so many memories here that will not be forgotten. We didn't even go anywhere because the kids had so much fun playing and building snowmen in the meadow behind the house. (We even made our own sled runs.) The kids didn't want to leave.

My husband deploys in a few weeks and we wanted a nice quiet family trip. We will always be so thankful for what you did for us. We will be back and we have people already looking at pictures and wanting your house info.

The Lord was good to us when he lead us to you! God bless you both.

With thanks, The B. Family

A Great Family Home in South Lake Tahoe
average rating of 4.939394 based on 34 reviews

Very pleased, great house / location.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there with my family of 4 over the winter break and found it more than enough for us. We had one bedroom that went completely unused and truly enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen that had everything we needed. The place is clean and well maintained and the VRBO description is accurate. The owners are genuinely interested in a positive experience and kept in contact with us to make sure that happened. I would, and have recommended this place to friends and family.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin for a family vacation. We could not have been happier staying at the Beth Selah cabin in South Lake Tahoe! The cabin itself is very clean, inviting, and comfortable. The owners have done a great job of equipping it with everything a guest might need including: extra bedding, movies and games, plenty of towels, and a fully stocked kitchen. The cabin is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood near recreation and beach areas, shopping and restaurants, and minutes from skiing. Owners Ray and Jenny are a pleasure to work with. Our family had a fun and memorable time, and we look forward to staying at Beth Selah again soon!

AMAZING! Spacious home for a great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came with 6 people to this place and were blown away with this place. We are physicians looking for a quick getaway and we were pleasantly surprised our last minute find was just perfect.

The owners are amazing. They respond quickly to questions and helped me plan my trip for the weekend with suggestions. They have organized every cabinet with labels so one can easily find items. Essentially, they are just extremely thoughtful and lay everything out from check-in to check-out so that the stay goes smoothly.

The location was perfect for us. It was just off the highway so we didn't have to deal with the downtown traffic and easy to get to the beach and biking trails.

I recommend you checking this place out. For the cost, you can't go wrong.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Andrew for such a kind, detailed review! We really appreciate all that you said. It really helps people when they are searching for a place, to know what kind of owners we are. We rented houses in Tahoe with our kids long before we bought this place, so we wanted to do the best we could for others! Bless you, Jenny

Excellent home, clean, fully loaded amenities, great location, close to restaurants and Casino!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked The property from June 12-18 for a week stay. The access to the house was exceptional, specific detailed instructions were given to access the home and the entire house was in an immaculate condition. This is a great stay for a family with children, since the home was fully equipped with activities games and movies. The location was also great it was quiet at night. Easy access to all the stores restaurants and activities. The home is fully equipped with a kitchen and amenities. My son and I enjoyed our stay immensely and we plan to come back next year. I highly recommend this home for any vacation, three day weekend or a Family reunion. You will not be disappointed, because this house is well taken care of and the owners are amazing!

Beth Selah is ideally located halfway between Hwy 50 and Hwy 89 in the 'V' of the 'Y'. Once you have come into to South Lake Tahoe you are literally just a couple of minutes from the house. It is very easy to get to and a fast get away when you are ready to go home. While there you are so close to everything. 5 miles from Stateline, the Ski Resorts, Emerald Bay and many of the beaches. Raley's market is just 5 minutes away, as is outlet shopping.
