The house is in a proper Tahoe Keys area...walking distance to a beach, quiet and serene with lots of water fowl, bears and coyotes plus a secret way to hike to Camp Richardson. Take easy walks to the beach, to the lake, and Tahoe Keys Marina with Fresh Catch Restaurant on the water.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This lovely large home was perfect for our friends and family get away in Tahoe. We loved the excellent amenities including the beautiful decor, huge deck with grill and fully equipped kitchen. The location enabled easy trips to the casinos, restaurants, shopping and skiing. Special thanks to John and Lana for their warm welcome and willingness to answer all our questions and being there whenever needed. The home is clean and well furnished. We'd love to return.

Wow my friend & I came to the house to attend the celeb golf tourney at Edgewood, John & Lana were fantastic, dinners out by the water with the neighbors & happy hour too. John even took us by boat to the golf course lol~ Felt like we were at home, also went by boat to Camp Richardson, Emerald Bay & Sunnyside, absolutely gorgeous. Great time & weather. Can't wait to go back!

Great stay. Cozy place

  • 4 of 5

We had a full house and John and Svetlana were very gracious and helpful. The house has a cozy feel even though it had plenty of room for four adults three children and two dogs. The setting is great on the water. We were there during the new years holidays and I think it would be a great location for a summer vacation. We highly recommend the home for a vacation.
