About Wendy Copra

I've been in the travel industry for more than 30 years.Our family loves to travel, so we have rented homes on this website and other websites all over the world. Because we are visiting other places as well as Lake Tahoe, we have the time to rent our Jicarilla Chalet for others to enjoy. We love to have family reunions here whenever possible. Lake Tahoe is a fabulous year round destination!

Wendy Copra purchased this house in 2011

Why Wendy Copra chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell in love with this property 30 years ago, because of all the beautiful pine trees and the forest at the end of our street. When we retired we completely remodeled it. It originally was a small A frame home and we turned it into a 2,400 square foot home with a large deck to capture the views of the mountains.

This house is gorgeous inside and out. We loved everything about it. With 6 adults and 3 children, we had plenty of room. The kitchen has everything needed and the BBQ is great! The bedrooms are large, and the bathrooms are spacious and beautiful, too. The yard is so pretty and there is a nice hiking trail at the end of the block. It is a great location, close to the beach and shopping, and in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We can't wait to come back!

Spacious, obviously still in the process of improvements....but had everything we needed plus more.

  • 3 of 5

Appreciate the use of this property...location awesome, very spacious, kitchen had everything we needed plus more. The beautiful showers were perfect; more stairs than I expected; was not able to use the TV in downstairs bedroom; working TVs in each bedroom would have been nice..It was obvious improvements are in being made....overall very pleasant stay.

Comfortable and roomy

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodations as described and shown in the pictures. The house was comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. The bedrooms have nice TVs, although we only used the one in the living room, which is an HDTV. Our Ford F150 wouldn't fit in the garage, which wasn't a big deal because we were able to park diagonally in the driveway. Had it snowed it may have been a problem because the snow plough needs driveway access. We also thought the location was convenient, although a shorter route to the mountain is closed during the winter months so we had to drive a little farther than we initially expected. The house has wifi but one needs to sit in rooms close to the router. We would return if at least one bedroom was upgraded to a king-sized bed!

Beautiful house. Great communication!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here! There was great communication prior to our stay and no confusion upon arrival. The house had everything the listing stated and even though it was only for 3 nights we sure enjoyed it. The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly. They did ask about a blanket that they thought was missing and asked me to track it down for them but we knew we didn't take it with us so that was the only thing that was a little off putting as they did apologize later once it was found. Overall, we all left with positive remarks about our experience.

South Lake Tahoe

Our home is located in a neighborhood with filtered views of the mountains. Our favorite beach is Camp Richardson, which has live music and a nice restaurant. There is a pier there where you can rent a boats, paddle boards, kayak, jet skis etc.

We have a nice deck where you can relax and a forest with paths that go on forever. Biking trails are nearby. You must see Emerald Bay. It's beautiful. Hikers can hike down a trail to the beach, or you can take a boat. There's a house there, called Vikingsholm that was built in the early 1900's. It's worth the trek.
