About Charles Tencher
My husband and I live and work in Lake Tahoe and we feel it is a great place to live and raise children. We love our home. It is spacious and yet homey. It has all the wonderful upgrades you look for in a home when traveling. I love the kitchen because it is the center of everything so while I am cooking I am still involved with the family. The kitchen is in the center of the house right by the family and dining room. The family room is spacious yet cozy. It has a wonderful fire place that we all enjoy. The Family room has a great big flat screen TV that we watch movies together as a family. The Master bathroom has a huge jetted bath jacuzzi that is so relaxing after skiing all day. The house has given us many great memories. The backyard is especially nice because it is large. There is room to run around and play in the snow and build snow men. I also love the trails walking distance from the house. There are walking and bike trails that are beautiful.
Charles Tencher purchased this House in 2010
Why Charles Tencher chose South Lake Tahoe
This house is so special to us because we visited Tahoe for many years before moving here. Our kids love it and we love it. It is in a great location. It is close to all activities and is still tucked away from it all. We have such great memories here and are still making some.
What makes this House unique
This home is so beautiful. We are so proud to spend time here. It is large and upgraded with a homey feel. There is warm wood surrounding the home and it gives it a fabulous Tahoe feel - it is just perfect. The privacy on the beach is wonderful and the fact that you can appreciate the lake from all rooms in the house is fabulous.

Decent stay, but have issues (some serious)
Overall our theee families had a pretty good time. However, we had quite a few issues:
Pricing: Given it is Labor Day weekend, we were prepare to pay a high price. However, having nearly $1,700 worth of tax and "fees" tacked onto the $5,500 quotes bordered on deceptive.
Arrrival: I booked the rental, but our friends arrived 45 minutes early and was told on the phone that only I can check in. When I called when I was 30 minutes out (was instructed to do so by the emails sent by the management,) I was told the person who will check me in is on the Nevada side and will be late. At the end, we ended up waiting for 1.5 hours for the agent to arrive. They also called on the day of departure offering a "late check-out," but we decided not to wait.
Cleanliness and maintenance: Most of the house was pretty clean, but all the rooms other than the remodeled kitchen appears to be from the 80's. The kitchen was prominently featured on the listing so again it felt misleading. The beds were well worn. There were cots and extra blankets, but there were no extra sheets. The bathrooms were dated and had a funky smell. There was a metal step ladder for getting in and out of the hot tub. It was functional but did not feel safe. The freezer was quite gross.
Safety: Beside the step-ladder for getting in and out of the hot tub, there were some additional safety issues. The most serious issue is the full-length sliding window in one of the bedrooms. One would expect it would lead to a balcony, but there is nothing but 12-foot drop to the side yard. This cannot have passed any building code. We were not able to gain access until sundown because the agent was late, and this was not pointed out to us during the walk through. Luckily no one was injured. The rental provided a stand-up paddle board and a kayak. To be completely fair, we really enjoyed playing with them. However, everyone going in and out of the marina had life jackets, and the harbor police was out in force. Life jackets should have been included at least with the kayak. Finally, due to the age of the bathrooms, it was very hard to adjust the shower temperature without getting scalded.
Noise and privacy: The house was located right at the mouth of the harbor, and there are hundreds of boats going in and out of the harbor all day and night. It was literally the boat highway. Many boats blast music as they go by. It is very interesting for us to watch the boats, but the noise can be a problem for some.
Beautiful and Peaceful Loaction
The house was stunning, clean, and peaceful. We used the property for a leadership day and it could not have been a more ideal location. Charles and Amy were easy and wonderful to work with.
Thank you for the wonderful review. We appreciate you taking the time. We look forward to working with you again.
Wonderful vacation getaway!
The home was beautiful and perfectly prepared for our family. The Tenchers were so hospitable -- they made sure we were comfortable in the home and gave us plenty of information on what to do around the area. We loved the beautiful view of the Tahoe Keys from the backyard, and would absolutely recommend this home and Tahoe Rentals to everyone!
Thank you for this wonderful review. We were so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. Tahoe is great at this time of year. Please come back and visit anytime. Happy Holidays.
Amazing place for our large family gathering!
This lovely three story home was the perfect setting for our Thanksgiving gathering of 21 adults and children. First floor has an amazing game room - fun Air Hockey and Ping Pong, with a 9 seat theater and hundreds of movies to choose from. The home was well appointed, with the kitchen stocked with all the pots, pans, serving items and place settings needed to make and serve our Thanksgiving feast. The 2nd floor of the home houses another game room with a pool table, a bar, living/lounge space, kitchen, dining room and a second living area with a TV. The 21 of us were spread out, never felt cramped as we had lots of areas to roam. Hot tub was fabulous! Property manager went over and beyond to ensure we were dialed into the space, and even played tour guide escorting us to a lovely nearby hike at Logan's Shoals. Safeway market just a few miles away, as well as some lovely local eateries. We would come back to this lovely home again!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We really appreciate it. We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to having you again. Have a great holiday season.
Charles and Amy couldn't have been more responsive or attentive before and during our stay. The house was clean and in excellent condition when we arrived. Charles was flexible with our check-in and check-out times at no extra cost. All in all I would recommend this home to others. Our only critique was the gate leading to the gated community broke down one day but it was fixed within the hour.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We really appreciate it.. The house was left in great condition and I welcome the information you shared during your stay. Have a great Holiday Season. We hope you will visit again.
What a magical house with a breathtaking view!!
We were nine women celebrating our 50th birthday together in Tahoe and this house was perfect. From the day we all started to arrive, we didn't want to leave!! We all enjoyed hanging out on the patio and we never got tired of the view. We sat in the hot tub, sat on the beach, and even swam in the lake. The house has everything! The property manager met us and showed us around. They were wonderful! I inquired about a blender and they brought us a Vitamix! We had a private chef come and cook for us one night, we took a boat ride to Emerald Bay, went for a hike, did a little shopping, and the rest of the time we were perfectly happy to stay at the house. I'd love to come back!!!!
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You and your group were so easy to work with and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I do hope you return next time. Thank you for all your input and leaving the house so clean we are grateful for guests such as yourselves. Thanks again and have a great summer.
