About the property


This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home centrally located in South Lake Tahoe is perfect for the family who wants to have fun!

Newly remodeled beautifully decorated with luxury amenities such as a hot tub, an over-sized pool table, cable tv, wifi internet, Roku and a fully equipped modern kitchen. You will be able to roast your turkey for thanksgiving in stainless steel kitchen-aid style. When we say fully-equipped, we mean from food processors to blenders for those margaritas!

You will enjoy a beautiful landscaped back yard garden (fully enclosed for your pet and family) with wrought iron patio furniture complete with a char-broil gas BBQ grill w/ extra griddles and warming plates. Soak in the hot tub year-round on the private deck area. This is after you come home from an adventure on the mountain, bicycling to the beach or out to dinner, playing at the casinos or golfing at the nearby bijou golf course.

Whether it be summer or winter, there is much to do in Tahoe. Try wine-tasting at our local galleries, or summer evening concerts on the lake at two locations within walking distance from your home. Stand-up paddle boarding is all the rage along with water skiing, para-sailing, hiking or mountain biking. There are many trails close by where you can get a 360 degree view within minutes. The nearby Heavenly Village offers shopping, gondola rides, skiing and boarding for all ages and the casinos bring in big name entertainers of all genres year-round.

Needless to say, you'll have so much to do, you'll have to come back for a return visit for every season. Take advantage of our spring and fall spectacular rates!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was truly one of the easiest processes for renting a home we have ever experienced (we do 2-3 a year), and communication was fantastic throughout, from rental, to just prior to arrival, to after arrival. Thank you very much.

Perfect for our family gathering on Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

The pool table and spa were a big hit. Enjoyed the cozy fireplace and the warm inviting decor and comfortable setting. Nice quiet area yet everything was close by, stores and restaurants. The beds were very comfortable and slept eight nicely. The beautiful Kitchen was fully equipped so it was easy to prepare meals. Very nice modern appliances.

Our family loved it and recommend it.

Comfortable and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable, clean, and provides all the features that you would need in the kitchen & bathroom. Our kids did not get to play the Wii because the batteries were dead & we did not have any to replace the sensors, although that was not a big deal because we spent most of the day/night out. It was great that the home was pet friendly. Our dog loved it there. However, the carpet is well worn but still presentable. Be sure to not wear your shoes in the home but wear your shoes outside in the backyard because the tree sap sticks to the bottom of your feet and it was very hard to get off. The location made this home very desirable. It was walking distance to the grocery store, restaurants and the beach.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for three couples or a family. The pool table in the living room is good quality, though the space can be a little tight. The jacuzzi is nice in a pretty back yard. We have nothing to complain about.
