About Joanne

We purchased our home in 2000. In the first few years we rented through an agency, which only cared about high prices and did not care about the house. In 2005 we took the house off the rental market and completely remodeled it over a 2 year period. We then decided to manage our home ourselves and offer it to guests to come and enjoy all our hard work. We pride ourselves on having a clean, well maintained home, with plenty of amenities for our guests.

We offer reasonable prices, with a repeat client discount. Please come and stay in our home,

Joanne & Dale

Why Joanne chose Lake Tahoe Area

We love Lake Tahoe's North Shore, it is a special area with lots of wild life and on the 'quiet' side of the Lake.

This house was perfect for the entire family. We will definitely rent it again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Tahoe for a wedding coming from all over the U.S. This house worked so well for the week visit for 12 people! It was clean, comfortable, and loaded with anything one might need. The decks are awesome - where we spent most of the time. Beautiful weather, close to the beach for the wedding, definitely a week to remember for all of us. Scheduling and working the details with the owners was friendly, enjoyable, and prompt. We will definitely rent this place again.

Thank You!!

Struck gold in Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

We struck gold in Tahoe when we found this perfect vacation rental! The home is comfortably furnished, super clean and stocked with everything you may need plus more! Our family felt right at home. We were visiting Incline Village for a family wedding and hosted the rehearsal dinner at this home. It was,perfect! We used their beach chairs for a beach day, the hot tub after beautiful hikes, and the large deck to gather for breakfast and at night to view the stars. Our family of 12 ranged in age from 4 to 87 and everyone loved it! I'd highly recommend this home and we plan on another stay there as well!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house for a family vacation - even better than the description and photos! Plenty of room to be together, yet privacy still possible. Love the master bedroom suites- so much room! Super well equipped kitchen. And a separate laundry room = heaven! Thanks Joanne for your hospitality and making this rental so easy and enjoyable! We hope to return again.

INCREDIBLE Vacation Rental!! Our 3rd stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING property within close proximity to ALL that Incline Village has to offer!

We are skiing people... so we always go in the winter. This year was our third stay!!! I can't say enough about coming home after a day of skiing, walking into the Gourmet Kitchen, Stone Fireplace at the end of the Living/Kitchen area... and the HOT TUB... just out the door waiting for us! It is like a dream come true. The location, Cleanliness and comfort of this 6 bedroom, 4 Bath property, is just Unbelievable! Absolutely the BEST rental property for the money, in Incline Village, Tahoe.

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for our two families. There were more than enough rooms and we could have easily added another family and still felt like we had plenty of space. When we walked in, we felt comfortable right away. You could tell that the owners set up the house the way they would like to have it if they lived there, and not the way most vacation homes are set up. The kitchen had all the appliances and cookware that we could possibly need. We were able to make any dishes that we could think of, it was that well equipped. We did not have a chance to use the hot tub, but it was great to have the option.

The owner, Joanne, was extremely accommodating and helpful. We had not traveled in snow in a long time and there was record snowfall that week. She had lots of helpful advice about how to time our departure to minimize exposure to the storm. She also told us where to shop (big supermarket Raley's is not far) and what activities were nearby. We felt like she was a very good host, not just a property owner. Her property manager Ramon was very responsive and made sure the driveway was cleared of snow. We had a great experience overall and highly recommend this vacation home.
