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 Al 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.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay! Mary's home exceeded our expectations as the home is located at the end of the block and felt very private, easy check in, well equipped kitchen, clean rooms and comfortable beds. We will definitely return. Thank you!

Beautiful property, perfect location, book it for a fun group!

  • 5 of 5

A River Runs Thru it is a fantastic home for a group getaway. It's minutes from Heavenly and secluded at the back of a dead end road so you get panoramic views of a great stream and meadow (home to some friendly ducks and geese during our March weekend stay).

I highly recommend this property for a fun ski weekend and would strongly consider coming back during the summer months!

Perfect for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome! Perfect for large groups! Felt very warm and comfortable. The sleeping situation is very generous. Kitchen was very well stocked - it had everything you would have in your home kitchen and more. We had 5 cooks in the kitchen at the same time and we didn't feel crowded. Beds were comfortable and well appointed. My husband and I stayed in the room with the large play room with kids and it was perfect! They had a separate TV/game room for kids with child-size tables and chairs and it was awesome! Plenty of games to play too. The living room felt spacious and sofas were so comfortable too. The best part of this house is the location - it is literally at the end of the street with only one neighbor. It overlooks a river and mountain (which makes for great photos). The kids even had their own little private snow play area. Would definitely stay here again!! So glad we found the place. Thanks Mary!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Great home in a beautiful location! The hot tub over looking the meadow was so peaceful and the large living rooms are ideal for games and family time. Great place for groups with a lot of couples as there are 6 private bedrooms and a nice bunk-bedroom for kids.

Overall great experience!
