About Danny McNamara

My family has had a vacation home in South Lake Tahoe since I was 10 years old. 20 years ago, my father moved there permanently. For the past 10 years, my father and I have been building homes in Tahoe and selling them. But this one I built for myself and my family (that's my wife and new daughter in the photo). I work in Advertising in San Francisco and manage other family vacation homes for many years.

Danny McNamara purchased this house in 2008

Why Danny McNamara chose South Lake Tahoe

Location, location, location! We decided two years ago to build a house for ourselves. After months of searching we found the perfect lot. It's near Heavenly Ski Resort (where I've had season passes for many years and from where I can ski from the mountain to the house) and off Pioneer Trail (providing quick and direct access to the Bay Area, the mountains, the lake and the Casinos while avoiding Hwy 50). It also has miles and miles of hiking and biking trails right from the front door. Which was very important to our family. After all, what's a vacation home if it's in the city?

Our family was up for our daughter's wedding, and we couldn't have been happier with the home. It is beautiful and furnished with quality amenities.

Beautiful House!

Let's Go Preds! Nashville, TN

What a beautiful house to stay in during our trip to South Lake Tahoe! Lots of great space for socializing and very comfortable, huge bedrooms. We invited friends staying at the local casinos to dinner several times. The kitchen/dining area was well suited for entertaining... we had 13 people at one time and still plenty of room! We'll be back!

Family Getaway In Style

Diana T santa monica, ca

We had a fantastic time with close friends and family at this luxurios South Tahoe home. There were plenty of room for us, and we were seven adults and three children. It takes minutes to get to the slopes, casinos and even the lake. On a typical day, we had a full day of skiing, followed by sledding on the lake and then a wonderful hot tub back at the house. The house is so close to everything that you can really fill your day with whatever you like. Plus, we have all the comforts of home, and then some. The kitchen is huge, well-appointed and perfect for our family cooking extravaganzas. We had a blast and will come back again.

Great City Getaway

Carlos C

This was an excellent escape from San Francisco. It is close enough to many options of entertainment and adventure in this beautiful city. Public transportation, bars, skiing, restaurants, supermarkets, hiking and if what you are looking for is peace and relaxation, they all are accessible in this wonderful property.

We had a lot of fun on our trip! The home is spacious, modern, and clean! We stayed for three nights, and the only issue we ran into was the warm water running out due to everyone trying to shower around the same time. Other then that it was great!

One of the nicest homes I've stayed at in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

Just a beautiful home with pride of ownership evident through-out with all modern appliances and furnishings. Well thought-out lay-out with great room/kitchen upstairs upstairs and bunk beds recently installed downstairs are perfect for kids. Great location close to Heavenly and state park line for hiking and biking in summer and sledding in the winter. Wonderful!

Amazing home with wide-open layout

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time. The kitchen and living area is nice and open which is nice to include the entire family. Also the rooms are nice and spacious and the beds are very comfortable. It's not too far from the local grocery stores and downtown Tahoe. We only had one issue and that was the wifi not working. The owner was able to call me the next morning to troubleshoot but unfortunately we were not able to resolve anything. We had a slight issue with cell signal so that was slightly frustrating. The hot tub was a nice way to relax and warm up during the cold day. Would love to return during the snowboarding season.

Beautiful home: great kitchen, comfortable beds

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. We were especially grateful that the kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/cooking utensils as were planning to cook/eat-in a majority of our stay. And how wonderful to get a good night's rest in another home - the beds were very comfortable!

Great Sledding Hill too in winter - on Lake!

All beaches are public. Pope & Reagan beach are the best day beaches with BBQs and whatnot. Also Camp Richardson / The Beacon has a great hang out restaurant on the beach usually with Live music + the old Pope estate to check out. This is on the way to Emerald Bay (a great day trip) - stop at the ice cream shop on the corner - it's cheap! The end of Ski Run Blvd there is a long pier and a nice restaurant called the Riva Grill. The Red Hut has great breakfasts (two locations one on the 50, the other on Kingsbury Grade). Rude Brothers Coffee (on the 50 near Al Tahoe) has great coffee and treats. Cork and More has great picnic supplies and wine selection (Al Tahoe near 50).
