The kitchen is fully-equipped with tableware to seat ten people.

The upper level deck is nearly 500 square feet, with patio furniture and features a new gas gill.

In additions to the second master bedroom, the lower level has a bumkroom with a bunkbed, a queen size bed, and a TV for DVD/VCRs. The third lower level bedroom has 2 twin/single beds.

The Sunny View House is ideally located for taking full advantage of all that Tahoe has to offer. Walk to Meeks Bay Resort and Marina, the best beach at Lake Tahoe and where you will find everything for an enjoyable day at the beach, plus; ski boat, paddleboat and kayak rentals, a snack bar, and souvenir shop. For a little exercise and a family outing, ride your bike to any destination on the west shore using the west shore bike path, located less than quarter mile from the house, or hike from the Meeks Bay trailhead into the Desolation National Wilderness Area.

About Chris Williams

I have retired to Central Oregon after 25 years of working and raising a family in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our adult children and their families are able to use the Sunny View House only occasionally. After a complete upgrading (all new appliances, new carpet and new beds and linen) we began renting it in 2006.

Chris Williams purchased this house in 1977

Why Chris Williams chose Meeks Bay

I had been coming to the Meeks Bay area of Lake Tahoe since childhood. In 1976 I purchased a lot and built the Sunny View House the following summer. My life and family's life has been truly enriched during the times we have shared at Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

We try very hard to make sure our renters have a wonderful vacation while at Lake Tahoe. Upon your arrival you’ll find a sparkling clean house (thanks to Marni); a well stocked pantry including, olive oil, other vegetable oils, several different BBQ rubs and sauces, condiments and all the spices you’ll ever need; complete table ware for 10; quality beds and linens; and, yes a spectacular view. We continue to invest in up grading the Sunny View House; we care and it shows.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

This was our best Tahoe vacation ever. 430 Sunny View Drive offered great lake views with the quietest location. No traffic, 10 minute walk to Meeks Bay Beach, easy access to bike trail. The house was spacious and well equipped, entire living room was wall-to-wall windows. Peaceful solitude. A gem of a vacation home.

This was a beautiful, well-maintained & much loved family home with a gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

The Williams Family Meeks Bay house is the perfect place to stay for multiple families. It was clean and felt homey. Very comfortable beds and living room sofa. Fully stocked closets with extra linens and the kitchen has everything you could ever need to prepare meals. Large deck with a gorgeous view of the lake. The house is atop a hill at the end of the cup-de-sac. Will definitely want to return, as it was the perfect place for us.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house in Meeks Bay. The owners have equipped the house with everything a family might need - pantry items, kitchen equipment, instructions for accessing beach and things to do. The house is in a cul de sac which was great for the kids to run around and play (when they weren't playing in the house or in the woods!).

It is an easy walk or drive to Meeks Bay. A short drive to King's Beach enabled us to access parasailing and other fun activities.

One thing that could be improved might be the internet access - we had 2gb available but feel we went through it very quick and had trouble getting more data via AT&T. But, unless you have someone who needs to do some work (as we did) it probably wouldn't be an issue.

We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Evan - Thank you for your wonderful review. We hope you will return soon. With regard to the internet, we provide 5 gbs per week and additional data can be purchased from AT&T. Thanks again, Chris

Spectacular, beautiful, majestic all describe the view at Sunnyview. An awesome spot for vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in Tahoe and staying at Sunnyview helped make it so wonderful. Plenty of room and the location is just perfect! It is on the end of a quiet cul-d-sac and you feel as if you are the only one staying there. We will definitely be going back as long as our growing family can fit there.

Great and very comfortable house in a spectacular location.

  • 4 of 5

Staying in Tahoe is always wonderful but when you have a beautiful view of the lake and mountains in makes all the difference in the world. The William's house (this is not a cabin) overlooks Meeks Bay and is very quiet and private. A short drive from Tahoe City and close to Emerald Bay and many hiking spots. Everything you need for cooking and comfort is right there at your fingertips. The house is also big enough for a couple of families. I would highly recommend this house for anyone looking to stay at Lake Tahoe. My wife and I had a very fun and relaxing week. Thank you Chris Williams.
