About Joe Castello

My family lives in the San Jose Bay Area and enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, bike riding, fishing, and boating. This is our third and newest listing and have used VRBO since 2009. We look forward to being able to share this lovely house with you and your family.

Joe Castello purchased this house in 2009

Why Joe Castello chose Christmas Valley

This home has been in our family since I was a child and was built by my grandfather. We have nothing but fond memories growing up and coming here often with family and friends.

We love Christmas Valley for it's scenic beauty, wildlife, abundance of activities, and close proximity to the Lake. It is a great place to relax and unwind.

What makes this house unique

We love the location of Christmas Valley. We're located close to town, but away from the crowds. The house is centrally located near highway 50 and 89 and near three great ski resorts. We're a short walk from the Truckee River that runs just behind the house. Scenic views of Echo summit and the surrounding mountains right from the house. We're less than a 10 minute drive from the house to the Lake shore.

This area has it all and we know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Spacious house for large groups

  • 5 of 5

After the last place we tried to get for our vacation fell through the day before our departure (a water line broke and damaged the house) we scrambled to find a place for our large group. Luckily, we came across this place which fit very nicely in terms of location and size. For the amount of people we had, this place was very spacious for the kids to play, and it was also very close to Adventure Mountain, which was great for taking the kids to play in the snow. There was plenty of parking, internet access, Directv service, and the owner was very communicative/responsive in all the questions I had about the place, both prior and during our stay there.

Great stay for big group

  • 5 of 5

Our softball team enjoyed hanging out at the house, and the dogs looooved the backyard. Loved the open living room, kitchen, and dining room--was very useful during team dinners. Will definitely stay again if we're ever in South Lake Tahoe.

Great for lots of people

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is enormous -- we had six people, and could easily have fit another four. The kids room with four beds is especially good for multiple families. Apart from all the space, we found everything we needed, from toys to internet, to dishes for 20 people(!) worked well. We enjoyed the proximity to skiing and easy access to down-town South Lake Tahoe. Definitely a good choice for a large group.

Mountain comfort

  • 4 of 5

What a relaxing home. We rented this home for our son's 22 birthday. There were 8 of us and the dogs. We played horseshoes, dogs swam in creek, fished and hiked and enjoyed the thunder and lightening storms. Joe was easy to deal with and room a plenty for all!

Great getaway for larger family...

  • 5 of 5

There is so much to say about this place. First, the living room is huge. Plenty of room for a larger group; enough seating, floor space, etc. Cozy and comfortable and feels like "Tahoe." Kitchen is stocked over-sufficiently. Plenty of pots, pans, silverware, glasses, etc. The bedrooms are well-placed and well-sized. There is a large, fenced backyard that was fantastic for our pups and the kids to run around in. The neighborhood is cute and there is plenty of driveway parking. Location is about a 20-min driver from Heavenly, and there are lots of cute little stops/restaurants, etc. along the way.

The owner, Joe, was fantastic to deal with. Professional on the front end, with all the terms of the agreement spelled out and easy to review, yet very personable and friendly. We also felt that he was easy going. It was obvious that there was some personal attachment to this cabin and it would be easy for an owner to be overly controlling in renting to a larger group such as ours, but he was very laid back, though accessible via email or phone. The pricing was very reasonable and we had a wonderful time.

Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great home and very reasonably priced. The location is perfect if you are looking for a quiet place to stay but also being close to plenty of activities. The house was very clean upon our arrival. It has a very nice mountain cabin feel to it with pictures of fishing and wildlife as well as a mounted mule deer above the fire place. The yard is perfect for dogs as it is completely fenced in and plenty big enough to run around. I would recommend this cabin to families, skiers, fishermen, hikers, and those looking to get away and enjoy the piece, quiet, and all that Tahoe has to offer.

We are located in the beautiful Christmas Valley area of South Lake Tahoe near highway 50 and highway 89. We're surrounded by breathtaking views of Echo Summit and the surrounding mountains with the Truckee River running behind us just a short distance.

The house is away from the congestion of the town but still only a few miles to all of Tahoe's attractions. We are also close to several Golf courses, grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants.
