About The Owner

My husband Dave and I along with our very good friends and co-owners Don and Joyce live in beautiful Santa Cruz California. We have 2 grown children and 2 grandchild and Don and Joyce have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We all feel very fortunate that all our children are great friends and also call Santa Cruz home!

Thank you for considering our Tahoe home!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

We chose Tahoe as our vacation home destination because it was a place where my husband has many childhood memories. Prior to purchasing this home, we found ourselves renting other homes around the lake every summer. It had always been a dream of ours to own a home in Tahoe and we couldn't be more fortunate to have found this home. Our friends Don & Joyce just happened to be in Tahoe on the same weekend we were when we came across it on it's first day on the market. Meant to be!

What makes this house unique

Our home is the perfect home for family reunions and the gathering of friends who may want to spend their vacations together. Our property is very unique because it sits on 3/4 of an acre and is the largest parcel in the whole neighborhood. Located right on the creek overlooking an expansive meadow, it has views beyond compare. So many times our renters have commented to us that the pictures, as pretty as they are on our website, don't even compare to when you actually see it in person.

Beautiful, Scenic & Functional Property for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

A group of eight adults and six toddlers enjoyed the this property in numerous ways. First, and foremost, the river through property is unbelievable! The fish, ducks and crawfish made for exciting wildlife engagement on a daily basis. Catch and release crawfish fishing was one of the highlights for all of the kids. Second, the large outdoor space/grass was great for those of all ages. The 'boys' were able to play a health game of football will enough space for long throws. The supply of outdoor games and accessories on the property were more than adequate. As for the house, there was more than enough space for everyone. The kids had their own living room where toys and game could be spread out and separated from the main living area. The kitchen was stocked with all essentials and cookware. We had both coffee makers going in the morning allowing those who need the their morning caffeine fix not two wait around for the next pot to brew. Finally, the property was far away enough to feel secluded and private, but close enough to South Lake Tahoe activities, stores, eat..... for convenient access. Although the group I was with enjoys trying different properties on our annual Tahoe trip, this might become a standard from now on.

Family Time Out West

  • 5 of 5

Our family numbered 15 with adults and children. We had not been together for over 3 years, so seeing the young ones again was wonderful; especially in this setting. As mentioned in other reviews, this home and location is exactly as described. The location on the end of the street was perfect, peaceful and pleasing to the eye. The little trout stream didn't reveal any trout, but the kids wasted no time in wading in to catch crawfish.

The kitchen was very well stocked with eating and cooking utensils, as well as plenty of plates, cups, and serving dishes. It really was more than adequate for meal preparation. The only challenging cooking location was the barbecue. It was a bit difficult to regulate cooking temperatures....but that was a small issue. Otherwise, we loved the layout and the location. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

Family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

All children and grandchildren had a wonderful time. Children's could run and play and we even set up an obstacle course. Being at the end if the street provided privacy and quietness in the evenings. Property was just as described and well cared for. Good support from owner and property management . Location was perfect with easy access to so many activities. Highly recommend this property and we will be back!

Best Home for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family reunion, that included 8 adults and 5 teenage children. Hands-down, this was the best home for us! The location was amazing--with the creek running behind, and the large lawn for croquet, badminton, and corn hole. Not to mention the privacy and views, access to the lake and several other South Lake Tahoe amenities. It's close to everything! Also, the kitchen was appointed with absolutely anything one would need (including a second refrigerator in the storage room) to cook a gourmet meal. The outdoor barbecue station (which was clean and well stocked) also had a fridge. The two family rooms meant the game could be on in one, and a movie could be playing in the other--and the large, sectional sofas provided space for all 13 of us (and then some!).

Next time we're in So. Lake Tahoe with a large group, this will be our go-to.

When other reviews said the photos don't do this home justice, it is true! I recommend you go and see for yourself.

Wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our large family rented this home for a reunion and everyone loved it for the size, location, décor, and amenities the home provides.

The home is at the dead end of a quiet residential street providing a wonderful view of the mountains and meadow from the living room, with no other homes obstructing the view. The kitchen is well designed and well stocked with everything we needed. We appreciated the double oven, large gas stove, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, and extra refrigerator/freezer provided in the mudroom. The children enjoyed being able to play in the large backyard, and there were plenty of sleds for them to use in the snow. They also enjoyed having their own big room upstairs with multiple bunk beds and a TV, and they spent hours up there playing together and watching movies.

The home is located very close to shops and restaurants, is practically across the street from the Tahoe Rec Center where we enjoyed the indoor pool and ice skating, and it’s just a 10 min drive to Heavenly ski resort which we also visited during our stay.

The owner was very helpful and responsive throughout the reservation process.

We highly recommend this home to other large families looking for a vacation home where you can enjoy quality time together in a comfortable, clean, quiet and modern home.
