About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Tahoe Girls Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time enjoying this property for a weekend. The hot tub and deck area were great and it's a short walk to a dock for amazing sunset views. It's location is perfect to the lake but you also have easy access to Tahoe City restaurants and sporting adventures just down in Homewoood. Great stay!

Nice house, (it needs some improvement)

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice small place, centrally located, walking distance to lake, quiet, lots of great places nearby to eat (West Shore Cafe, Sunnyside, Lakefront Grill). Great hot tub. Beds were comfortable, living room furniture too. Basics were provided (shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, etc). We had just 3 adults in our party.

There were definitely things that need improvement. Needs comfortable outdoor furniture to relax...there are cheap white plastic chairs and old wood stools without backs to them. No cushions. We just couldn't sit out on the deck and relax. The most disappointing thing for us was that the double kayak was not at the dock as was was at the house, and was too heavy to carry, we didn't have a truck to bring it to the lake. And there was only one paddle and 1/2 of the other :(

We tried to contact our Vacasa rep and she never returned any phone call, text or email. We were really disappointed at this. One of the reasons we rented a house with a kayak was to actually use it.

The instructions we were provided we not up to date: internet password, gate code for the private dock was not provided. Thankfully the key lock was correct and we were aable to get into the house!

Some other little things: there are lots of linens but no washcloths! Both bedroom closet doors are either missing a door or there was a door leaning on the inside of the closet. Old carpet in bedrooms, stained, no clocks, everything was unplugged when we arrived, (it seemed like nobody had been there for a long time as there were many dead moths under the table). Had to restart the wifi and it was open access not secured. No cutting board.

We could have overlooked the smaller things (obviously we plugged in all lamps, etc,) but the lack of response to our attempts to contact was unforgivable in my opinion. Especially after our contact sent me an email before our check in to "contact her for any reason" and that she wanted to "ensure we have a stellar experience." It must've been an automated email.

All in all, we had a lovely time in Lake Tahoe, it's beautiful!

Mid-range Ramshackle Getaway

  • 2 of 5

If the serenity of Lake Tahoe and its evergreen forests inspire you to complain, then Tucker's West Shore Trove is the perfect trigger! The opportunistic whiner will find inspiration in every room. Did the person who installed the bedroom closet doors suffer from vertigo? Does the cabinetry and flooring evidence penny pinching or just the decline of the construction trade? How much money can you save by buying an oven and hot tub with single temperature settings? And who installs a hot tub on the front porch? Does hot tubbing on the front porch (sans privacy fence) under the leering eyes of the neighbors across the street, utility line workers, and the occasional street sweeper make you an exhibitionist? If the utility lines collapse would it turn this Jacuzzi into a time travel machine? Is it even possible to be transported to an era when this home was any less ramshackle?

Great location! Perfect for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for 4 days, 3 adults, 2 college kids, 2 youth for spring skiing and music festival at Squaw Valley. Very happy with comfort of beds. Quiet location. Hot tub was a nice bonus after long days. Location is 20 minutes from Squaw, a nice escape from town. Access tocross country ski areas, town, and lake was amazing. Thank you Vacasa. Great memories made.
