Overview

South Lake Tahoe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10), short walk to great beaches.

Our lovely home, Goldilocks Cabin, was built in 2007 and has been gently rented since 2008. With 4 bedrooms and two and 1/2 baths, it is spacious, well-appointed and beautifully decorated throughout in upscale 'Tahoe' style. The huge kitchen has modern stainless appliances and an island perfect for entertaining large groups. The living room features a flat screen HD LCD TV with cable and free Showtime, HBO and Cinemax, DVD and VCR with shelves full of movies, a Sony stereo that is iPod compatible, and comfy furniture to sink into after a day on the lake or slopes. There is a beautiful glass-enclosed fireplace viewable from the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Nine foot ceilings and numerous windows complete the luxurious feel of our home.

The master suite includes fabulous furnishings, an HDTV & DVD player, walk-in closet, and spacious private master bath with a romantic two person soaking tub and shower as well as dual vanity. One of the two cozy queen bedrooms also has an HDTV. The fourth bedroom is a perfect room for children or adults and features sturdy log-style twin bunks and an extremely comfortable double bed.

The front porch is a wonderful place to sit in a rocker and enjoy the neighborhood and has a "peek" view of the face of Heavenly. The private backyard is perfect for a summer barbecue or year-round hot tub fun. The Al Tahoe area is user-friendly every season of the year.

This 'cabin' is 4 very short blocks from the lake (less than a 2 minute walk) and just 2.5 miles from the casinos and the world-class Heavenly Ski Resort. Another ski resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe, is a quick 20 minute drive. Goldilocks Cabin is located between two of South Lake Tahoe's most popular beaches: Regan Beach and the newly renovated Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach. There is a boat ramp adjacent to El Dorado Beach. A wide array of shops and restaurants and so much more is within walking distance. Please visit the Goldilocks Cabin website listed below to view a complete gallery of photos, to peruse the availability calendar and to map the location. South Lake Tahoe is a quick drive or boat ride from the beauty of world renowned Emerald Bay. City of South Lake Tahoe permit #002649.

Keywords: Spacious private home, walking distance to the lake, 2 popular beaches, and 5-10 minutes to the casinos,Heavenly Ski Resort, hot tub, WiFi, comfortable, clean, family friendly.

About Nancy Williams

We purchased this wonderful home because of it's incredible location and superior amenities. After years of renting other vacation homes in the neighborhood, we knew we had found the perfect home to enjoy with our families and friends. Al Tahoe, a historically prominent neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe, offers year round activities with beautiful mountain and lake views. In addition to the fantastic skiing and gorgeous walks by the lake, we especially enjoy the public tennis courts and golf course located just a quick 2 minutes away.

Why Nancy Williams chose South Lake Tahoe

The Al Tahoe area is a friendly neighborhood next to the lake, a new boat ramp, great beaches, near world class skiing, restaurants and the exciting South Lake Tahoe casino action, entertainment and nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Here are some actual comments written in our guestbook by recent renters: "Our group of 40 gathered in various homes in SLT for a family reunion--Goldilocks Cabin was by far the most comfortable and beautiful of all!" "We enjoyed your cabin immensely. A perfect location, close to a very nice beach and a short drive to the casinos. Your cabin is so comfortable and well kept that it was a shame we had to leave." "Convenient, well equipped and clean!" "Enjoyed the hot tub and comfortable beds." "Like a home away from home...need I say more?!" And from a guest visiting for the 3rd time: "We had an awesome time at Goldilocks Cabin as always! Plenty of space to spread out and be comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub and all the amenities of home!"

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in South Lake Tahoe with another family and shared this beautiful cabin. We absolutely loved it. The cabin is beautiful on the inside and outside. We've had a few bad experiences and we're always a bit weary when cabin hunting. You need not worry about this one. Interior decorations are wonderful. Appliances and furniture are clean and very nice. Beds, linens and everything about this cabin is clean and high quality. The owners were very helpful and very pleasant to work with. Highly recommend this choice!!!

I wish I lived there...

  • 5 of 5

We found Goldilocks cabin to be well equipped with everything needed for a vacation stay....nice kitchen with dishes and utensils, nice appliances, towels, a good quality working BBQ, etc... The place is nicely appointed and tastefully decorated, atmosphere was relaxing and we felt quickly right at home. It's walking distance from the beach, restaurants, a neat little muni golf course, and minutes by car from skiing and the casinos if that's your thing. I wish I lived there....

Goldilocks Cabin Near Heavenly

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus six; teens and Tweens, found plenty of hideouts, televisions with cable, and clean, fresh furniture, bedding, baths - basically all amenities within. The proximity to bowling, restaurants, the lake was a surprise. We've often rented based on claims of superior location only to find this a disappointing exaggeration. Goldilocks Cabin was very close to everything. Well-managed and cared for and the price and location will definately attract us back. Many thanks to homeowners like Nancy who take the time and financial risks to care for vacation spots like this; a comparable hotel stay would've been unaffordable for our group.

Lastly: the one review of the neighbor across the street gave us caution, but we understood that this could happen anywhere in a popular vacation spot if vacationers stay up real late with lights on, etc., in a well known vacation rental. So interested parties who read reviews like us: the neighborhood is like every other around the lake with a great location; near a few not-so-great older dwellings, laundromats, 7-Elevens, etc. This neighborhood we found not to be a factor.

Goldilocks had it all except for the porridge!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in this beautiful, clean and comfortable cabin. It is in a nice neighborhood just 3 blocks from the lake, and there's even public access to take a nice stroll on the Lake Tahoe shoreline. Just a short mile plus car ride gets you to the heart of South Lake Tahoe, being Heavenly Village. Plenty of great restaurants close by, and Rude Bros. has awesome breakfast bagels and coffee to get you going in the morning, which is just a block away. The only negative I can think of is the neighbors across the street in the yellow apartments. They helped themselves into the house around midnight saying they wanted to join the party, the party being 3 of us up in the kitchen talking... So other than lock the door and don't keep anything of value of the front porch, a great place. Overall great place for a great value.
