Beautiful Home near Heavenly!
Fabulous house perfect for 1-2 families! Minutes from Heavenly...across street from lake...great for winter and summer activites!
Lovely home and perfect location!
I was extremely skeptical after reading the reviews and after my third email from the owner with warnings and threats of eviction and costly charges if ANYONE in my party broke any of the rules. I almost cancelled from the anxiety, but my sister wanted to celebrate her birthday in Tahoe. It was a mystery why we wouldn't respect the property at that price and a large deposit on file. I was expecting post it notes on everything with warnings. The mystery was solved when we arrived and saw what previous renters had done by dragging furniture across the beautiful wood floors. There were NO post it notes, but messages and reminders for people that were helpful and apparently necessary for some of these disrespectful and moronic renters.
Upon arrival, I was thoroughly shocked with the house and decor. There are stunning details everywhere and the furniture is attractive, functional and comfortable. A gourmet kitchen, wonderful bathrooms, laundry facilities in TWO separate rooms and the best of all, the VIEW. A spectacular view from the main level, roof level and most bedrooms. It has one of the best, unblocked views of any of the houses on that street. It is also steps away from a lovely park/grass area and playground, a small sand beach and a pier. I don't understand why other reviewers claimed that the park/beach area was bad as well as the neighborhood. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The neighborhood and the park across the street were all perfectly lovely. It's a short stroll to a cute cafe and the house is close and convenient to everything in Tahoe.
The house exceeded expectations and I would whole heartedly recommend a stay there as long as you have no smokers or pets in your party.
Real-life snow globe view
We booked this lovely home for a spring break ski trip with our teenage daughters. The location was convenient to Heavenly ski-area as well as shopping and restaurants. There is a beautiful, unobstructed view of the lake through large picture windows that is a perfect start to every day. With beautiful Lake Tahoe in the backdrop, it truly was like looking at a real-life snow globe as snow was falling. This home is beautifully decorated, very comfortable & spacious and well stocked for cooking meals in. I would definitely return and recommend.
Place was beautiful. View was breathtaking.
The home was very clean and comfortable and very well stocked. You wont be disappointed.
This property made our trip!

Essence of Tahoe
Beautiful home, spacious and elegant. Everything was beyond our expectations. A perfect rental for three families. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, no expense was too much. The home is very well constructed and professionally decorated. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
You’ll find our home on the California side of South Lake Tahoe, situated just 200 ft. from the beautiful beach of Lake Tahoe across the street from Reagan Park, and 5 minutes to Heavenly Ski Resort, one of the largest ski areas in all of Tahoe. The proximity to parks, beaches, and ski runs make it an ideal year-round location, and Lake Tahoe is never hurting for events. You’ll find something for everyone including concerts, carnivals, comedy shows, and dance lessons. Reagan Park, just across the street, offers plenty of activities for the kids, including volleyball, play areas, and swimming at the nearby sandy beach. If you are arriving by plane, our home is located just about 5 minutes from Lake Tahoe Airport or about 1 hour from Reno Airport. We do recommend renting a car for your stay.
