ROOMY MODERN HOME READY FOR RELAXING

Tahoe Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 478492 AND 440131

Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2011 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and cozy downstairs hideaway or the two big decks overlooking a creek.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a hot tub, a grill, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

• Complimentary gift basket on arrival

• Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers

• Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

• Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

• Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

• Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier

• Not over crowded, only two people to a room

• Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

• No keys to lose, choose your own code for our digital lock

Upstairs features a large open plan kitchen and living area. Beautiful slate flooring, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and HDTV above the gas fireplace. Send the kids downstairs to the large flat screen with Playstation 3, the foozball table or the game area. Cook up dinner on the barbecue or soak in the hot tub from the decks overlooking the creek and trees.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed and its own bathroom and two rooms with queen beds. Down stairs is lots of space with a full pullout couch and two twin futon couches. All your towels and linens are provided

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features alder cabinets and concrete counters. There are brand new fridgidaire appliances including a dishwasher and convection/microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

Relaxing is easy with a cozy fireplace and game and reading nook. The foozball table is great fun. We are wired for entertainment with 37' and 42' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is a good one. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly 10min; Sierra at Tahoe 20min; Kirkwood 35min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 5min; Golf 10min. This is a quiet, flat residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to a sunny wooded area and creek. Take it all in from the two big decks.

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and have been drawn to the place ever since. In fact I moved here permanently eight years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer.

Duggan Smith purchased this house in 2010

We bought this place so we would have somewhere for my family to stay when they visit from Australia. I was able to remodel it top to bottom with a great place to vacation being the goal all along.

GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay at this lovely home in south lake tahoe! Great location! Kitchen very well equipped! The grill needed a little cleaning before used it but worked out well! House was spacious and comfortable! Only complaint was that the pullout couch/futons on the lower level were very uncomfortable for sleeping on. Actually went out and bought an air matress which was much better! Would definitely stay here again (but probably w a max of 6 ppl)

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, glad you had a great time and thanks for the feedback on the sleeping arrangements downstairs. It is the first time that we have heard the beds are uncomfortable. The futons are firm, but I think other than that fine. The sleeper sofa, is a sleeper sofa so by definition not the most comfortable sleeping option (I personally pull the mattress off the sofa and on to the floor when I use a sleeper sofa). I will get a cushier mattress topper for the sleeper sofa. We always had this area more in mind for a kids sleeping zone.

GREAT SOUTH LAKE CABIN

  • 5 of 5
Great cabin for families or friends. We had seven adults at this cabin over the past weekend and there was plenty of space and beds for everyone to be comfortable. The house is stocked with essentials, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, dishes, dish soap, garbage bags. Also nice that the owner has also made sure there's plenty of garbage cans for you trash while you're there. I've been to several cabins where we had to lug garbage to dumpster at home because one can is just not enough for big groups. Cab ride to casino was reasonable just over 20 bucks if you wanted to go enjoy a few adult beverages. I definitely would rent this property again, communication with the owner was great. Not a single problem from check in to check out.

AWESOME WEEK IN TAHOE

  • 5 of 5
Our eldest daughter was due to be married and our little vacation house in Tahoe was not big enough to accommodate our East Coast family, so we rented this lovely home a short distance from ours. The owners were so accommodating! Even left a basket of goodies and a bottle of wine for our crew and allowed us to check in early to stock the kitchen for our family who had flown into San Francisco and had had a very long day of travelling. All were pleased when they arrived and saw the house. While we were busy with wedding preparations, our East Coast family took advantage of all Tahoe has to offer - boating, biking, paddle boarding, eating out at Sonny's Barbecue, hitting the ice cream parlor at Camp Richardson, etc. They were excited to see "Fluffy" (our neighborhood bear resident) on several occasions strolling through the meadow behind the house. The grill on the back deck came in handy several times and the kitchen was very well equipped. We will definitely rent the house again should our #'s exceed our own ability to house the family in the future. Thank you, Duggan, for your hospitality and flexibility!

BIRTHDAY WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I arrived at the house with 9 of my closest friends and it was perfect! We were celebrating my 30th birthday and the house had everything we needed. The grill is amazing as well as the hot tub! Kitchen is perfect! Super close drive to the lake and into town! Overall I had a great stay and would love to come back!

THE LITTLE PERKS WERE AN ADDED BONUS!

  • 5 of 5
Loved this house - clean, plenty of towels, access to washer/dryer, full kitchen amenities including coffee! We also loved the welcome basket of goodies which included snacks, gum, lotion, and fruit. Although we didn't use the hot tub, it was a nice option. It was nice to sit on the deck and listen to the birds chirping and squirrels chattering. Also nice to have a ranch style of house for my older mother - needed to use the stairs only if using the washer/dryer.

Location was close to the main road (less than 1mi.) and bike trail to the lake. But probably need a car to get to main stores.

Easy to work with the owner - very responsive. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Duggan!
