As California natives we have many fond memories of Lake Tahoe, including our first experiences with snow, skiing and kayaking as small children, and we are very happy to be able to create memories for others through sharing our wonderful home.
Heavenly Starlight Skyhouse launched as a vacation rental in 2014. All of the design, furniture, and detail has been chosen by us to create a unique feeling of exciting mountain adventure by day and cozy mountain warmth by night. When deciding what to put on our blank canvas, we took our previous experiences as vacation renters to heart - addressing all of the “I wish it had…” and “wait...it doesn’t have what?” moments from our past vacations.
As avid travelers, we have also had the privilege of spending significant time in the Alps in France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany. We are excited to bring elements that we discovered in our diverse and beautiful alpine experiences to the Skyhouse.
We hope you will enjoy the warm light, fantastic views, peaceful quiet, awesome location, and personal touches of the Skyhouse as much as we do.
Heavenly Starlight purchased this house in 2014
We fell in love with it! Amazing location, fabulous views, unique architecture, beautifully appointed, unlimited possibilities!
There are gorgeous views from EVERY room in the house. Tons of natural light flows in at all times of day. The seamless flow between indoor and outdoor space gives you the best of both. It's 400 steps from the entrance to Heavenly, but on the side that doesn't have traffic. It's close to everything, but quiet and relaxing. On a whole acre backing on US Forest reserve land, it is a rare size in Lake Tahoe, and the 3 wrap around decks and large, very private back yard provide a unique amount of outdoor enjoyment. It's high enough on the slope that it gets more snow than the lake level - sometimes skiers get lost and end up in the yard. The Skyhouse is truly unique, yet it embodies all of the mountain wonders that made us fall in love with Tahoe!
This house is perfect for a large group or family during the winter for skiing Heavenly as well as enjoying lake activities, hiking and mountain biking during the summer. The house has everything you need including a kitchen that's very well stocked for bbq-ing and cooking nice meals. The house has a very spacious yet cozy and comfortable feel at the same time. Ashley was quick to respond and great to work with during the entire rental process. Would definitely rent this house again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great winter or summer place for a larger group.
we certainly had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home. The views and the sunsets from the balcony were spectacular! I would definitely come back to this beautiful setting! The owner Ashley, was very accommodating and quick to respond to my emails. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
Our group had a great time and loved Ashley & Eric's comfortably furnished house with its multiple decks, fairly secluded perch up on the hill but right next to Heavenly CA, and lake/sky views. This isn't just another large rental house; it stands above the rest with Ashley's tasteful decorations and furnishing and well-organized kitchen. I wish we didn’t have to leave and hope to stay again.
We had our first family reunion in South Lake Tahoe. The house was perfect for family time. Beautiful decks surrounding the house with views of the lake. We cooked large meals in the kitchen and had a surprise guest join us in the backyard...a black bear! We quickly carried food inside, and our friend left. My sister and I found an amazing hike while following the street behind the house up to a dead end. Every room was very comfortable. The hot tub was fantastic. The pool table was located in our suite, fire and ice room, above the upper garage. That suite is fantastic. As much as I love my family, that was a great little getaway from everyone. The living room in the main house was the scene of an epic Cards Against Humanity game. Thank you Ashley! I can't think of a better place to spend a vacation!
This is a fabulous vacation home. I had such a great time that I have already reserved it for my family reunion. The house is beautifully furnished and the views are stunning. All the sleeping areas are very comfortable and private. The bathrooms are really nice. I have several gourmet cooks in my family and I know they will enjoy the kitchen's many amenities, especially the view! I highly recommend this VRBO.
This place was absolutely great. The house was very clean and the owners provided great instructions for checking in and using the house amenities. We were a very large group and the place never felt cramped. The house is in a great location - within walking distance to Heavenly Ski Resort and various grocery stores and restaurants. The only reason I didn't rate this place 5 stars is because management is very hard to get in touch with - either they didn't answer the phone or never returned our messages. Other than that, the house was phenomenal and Ashley (the owner) is very responsive and great to work with. Thanks for a memorable vacation!
