Space 860 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom + Bonus Room & 2 Full Baths. Sleeps 6.

My location is the best, you're only 5 minutes from the Casinos and the Lake Tahoe beaches, but a world away from the congestion and the viewless lots of flat South Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Rim Trail runs right past the front door. This is on top of the Mountain at the Stagecoach Ski Lift overlooking it all. The Lake Vista Condo has free access to the privately managed pool and hot tub which is professionally cleaned by our Homeowner's Association. A super place to relax on top of the Mountain.

(The location dot simply shows the South Lake Tahoe casinos. Keep in mind that my homes are 4 miles up the road in the much more scenic mountain top area by two of Heavenly's ski lifts.....we don't show the address and pinpoint location for your security). Reach out to us directly as we can make you the best deal and tell you all the details about these three terrific homes. Larry and Jen

About Larry and Jen

I'm an active duty Air Force pilot flying the C-5 Galaxy and I have always loved Tahoe and considered it my true home. Unfortunately over the past 12 years I spend about every other week flying an mission to Afghanistan and back and that's when my better half Jennifer takes over and manages the day to day demands of our rentals. I know you'll have a great time up here and we want to share all of the adventures we have discovered in Tahoe.

Larry and Jen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Larry and Jen chose South Lake Tahoe

South Lake Tahoe has a ton of cabins and most of them are in the flat parts with no views....that's why I bought my homes in the most scenic parts on the state border as this is the place that reminds me of the alpine Swiss country I grew up in. Stateline is also almost exclusively upscale vacation rentals so you won't find any run down homes in our neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

Close proximity to everything....the ski lifts are literally a hundred yards away. The casinos and the lake are less than 4 miles away. And the Tahoe Rim Trail are literally outside your front door. There is no need to drive anyplace if you want to hike this world class trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jen, I just wanted to say thank you again for the amazing deal you gave us to stay at your place. We had a very relaxing and productive time, and the condo could not have been more hospitable and cozy. We all talked about becoming regulars there with our individual families and will certainly recommend your place as a premier place to stay for skiing and recreation in Tahoe. Robin

Awesome ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jennifer, my parents and my husband wanted to say thanks for making our week in Tahoe terrific. It was so nice to stay in a home that was tastefully furnished and the three new mattresses were much appreciated. You made us such a good deal, we will come again in the Spring. Susie and Henry

Excellent Value! We'll be back soon!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and will be coming back to this prooerty this winter to be so close to the Heavenly lifts. We spent most of our time down near the casinos which was a short drive down the hill. Jennifer, the owner, gave us recommdations to eat with the locals...all great picks. Oh...they also have all new we slept like babies. Pat.

Ski House review

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time in Tahoe. This home was by far the best deal. Easy to book. You can arrive late and use the keybox. Nothing was cluttered and it was just what we were looking for. Had to give this review after spending two back to back years here and quite a few of my coworkers from the SFPD have stayed as well. Terrific value hands down.

Awesome Time this Summer

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing time at this home overlooking Lake Tahoe. The owner made everything easy and gave us the option to self clean at check out instead of paying the cleaning fee. This is awesome.....for two people it made no sense to pay for cleaners and Larry was the only owner who said "no problem." He told us his motto is "find a way to yes, no is not in my vocabulary."

You'll see that he cares about everything and he has served his country as an Air Force pilot for 20 years. Very cool photos in the home. It was a great experience. Loved it!!!
