Welcome to Tahoe's finest lakefront rental where the majority of guests return for repeat stays. Ingeniously designed with a fun and open floor plan, its tall wrap-around glass windows provide wide views of its private sandy beach ans stunning Lake Tahoe. Soaring ceilings and 7400 square feet of living space create luxury worthy of those with the most discerning taste.
You won't feel the need to leave the home to have fun thanks to the large billiard room, fun open floor-plan and over-the-top Runco theater in the main master 'Pamela Lee' suite (personally installed by Sam Runco). The home is filled with new large flat-screen TV's and WiFi, while the entertainment room has IPOD and BluRay hook-ups. Winter guests especially appreciate the silent hydronic floor heating system that silently distributes warmth throughout the entire home.
Relaxing is easy in the roof-top Jacuzzi, which offers a 360 degree view of Lake Tahoe and the beauty of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains. To keep in touch while on vacation, there is a fully-equipped lake-view office, including WiFi, fax, printer and scanner.
A new large boat dock was recently installed, and boaters and jet-skiers appreciate how Tahoe Keys is so very closely situated relative to Tahoe's most sought after marine destination--Emerald Bay.
This home has been the repeat choice of many well-known guests with sophisticated tastes, including: Barry Manilow, Pamela Lee Anderson, Dan Quayle, John Mellencamp, Peter Frampton, lars Ulrich, etc., yet the rental fees are the same or minimally higher than for other rental homes of far less value. Sean's On the Shore is the largest and most valuable home in the city of South Lake Tahoe. While most rentals are run by agencies, this home is run and meticulously maintained by it's affable owner, Sean Degnan MD, who resides nearby. Sean personally checks guests into the home, thus assuring a more personal experience and that everything in the home is in working order. As a local for decades, he knows Tahoe well, and goes out of his way to make certain guests understand the workings of the home as well and how to discover the best Tahoe has to offer.
Dr. Sean has recently completed the 3 year construction of his equally impressive ''Bali Beach'' lakefront home a few residences down the street where 'overflow' guests can stay at his two gorgeous honeymoon suites (for rental groups larger than a total of 18). Guests are welcome to make use of the new coveted volleyball court located at Bali Beach that was constructed in October of 2013. The court has water on 2 sides and sits on the Tahoe Keys channel so there plenty of friendly boaters going by to add to the fun!
Why Tahoe Keys and why this home?: Why, with all the world to choose from, did its owner elected to live and retire in Tahoe Keys? Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful lake in the lower 48 states. Tahoe Keys in South Lake Tahoe is the most fun place on the lake thanks to its views, rock-free beaches, and proximity to all the social life and everyone's ultimate boating destination, Emerald Bay. South Lake Tahoe has something for everyone--skiing, snow boarding, hiking, gaming, nightlife, water sports, outdoor concerts (from Tim McGraw to Journey to Elton John) plus more!
The owner paid the highest price ever paid for a home in South Lake Tahoe in 1999. The property is one of only a very few rentals actually situated on the lake in the fun recreational community known as Tahoe Keys. Sean's On the Shore, due to its wrap-around windows and open floor plan, affords the best possible views of the lake and mountains. The private beach is rock and debris-free. Boating to Emerald Bay is way easier than from the east or north shores, as is a quicker drive to most of the commonly sought-after destinations in the Tahoe Basin.
Perhaps the most relevant aspect about me is that I am a nothing more than average guy who has been above average in success in all business endeavors becasue of my desire to please. It's all about customer service. Treating others as I would wish to be treated.
I rent this house because I need to in order to meet my monthly mortgage. Most owners of homes this nice are too financially comfortable need to to rent. So take advantage of my situation and rent an awseome home that normally would not be availabler to the public.
Unlike the vast majority of Tahoe rental homes, renters of this masterpiece home are not dealing with a vacaton rental agency once your reservation is secured. All interactions are handled personally by me, the proud owner.
