About The Owner

Jennifer has been vacationing in Lake Tahoe for over 32 years. Her grandparents once owned a condo in Zephyr Cove and her mother always told Jennifer that she kicked herself for not buying it from them when she had the chance. Each summer, Jennifer's mother would bring home a Tahoe real estate magazine, but she never pursued her dream. Jennifer and Brett were married and honeymooned in Lake Tahoe in July 2008. Tahoe is forever a special place for Jennifer's family. In December 2008, Jennifer's mother died unexpectedly. Jennifer's mother was generous in life and in death, and left an inheritance to Jennifer and Brett that was enough for a down payment on a house in Lake Tahoe. By tears, blood and the sweat of their brow, Jennifer and Brett remodeled this Zephyr Cove home with the dream of renting it to people who will visit Tahoe and create rich memories with their friends and family, just as they have done.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lake Tahoe Area

A Bay Area native, Jennifer has been vacationing in Tahoe since she was four years old. Some of her fondest family memories occurred in Lake Tahoe, which included her and Brett's wedding on South Shore. Her grandparents once owned a home in Zephyr Cove, which made this specific area of Tahoe even more special for her. Brett and Jennifer hope that families and groups of friends will enjoy their home and build wonderful memories of their own.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is located in the exclusive community of Marla Bay. Just two short blocks to the beach and 3 miles to Heavenly and the casinos, the cabin is situated perfectly to get the most out of Tahoe at any time of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at your lovely cabin last weekend, and I just wanted to send a quick thank you! We have vacationed in Tahoe the past 4 years, and I think we have found the perfect house for our tight knit group of friends. We loved being able to cook in the open floor plan and not feel like we were missing out on any of the fun and games. And the short walk to the private beach was absolutely perfect. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful home!

Beautiful property that is extremely well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

As advertised the house is in a great location, a short walk to the lake and restaurants in walking distance. A short drive to a major shopping center and a couple of miles to Casinos and town center. House contains all that is needed for a comfortable stay. Appliances are easy to use and top shelf. Would certainly return on our next visit to Tahoe.

Comfortable and Close to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family has stayed here for our annual week at Lake Tahoe. The house feels like a home and is in a great location. My only suggestion would be to provide a few more bath towels and some washcloths for guests that are staying for an extended period of time. Thanks again for accommodating us in our Lake Tahoe tradition!

Great location, nice/clean home near the lake

  • 5 of 5

The home is just a few minutes north of downtown and just a 5 minute walk to the lake where we enjoyed hanging out on the secluded beach. The home is clean with lots of room inside and had most of what we needed to cook our meals. Would definitely stay again.

Comfortable, clean, cozy in a Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this cabin in early June, before the busy summer season and enjoyed it very much. Though it's not on the beach, it's still a great location within walking distance to beach. Best side of the lake, in my opinion (perhaps it's the terrific sunset views, that make it so). It's out of the usual tourist frenzy, but not far from services, necessities, activities and casinos. The house itself is quite comfortable, though as with many rental homes, be prepared to bring along shampoo, soap (bath and dish) and favorite spices. Bring briquets if you want to barbecue. There isn't much parking and you can't park at the beach access, so if you have lots of gear (baby stuff, umbrellas, coolers, water toys, etc.), it might be handy to have a wagon, cart or stroller with wheels for sand to carry the gear to the beach. There's a nice ramp for foot access at Beach Street. Otherwise, do a drop off and park the car back at the house. Great to have use of the garage, as well!

All in all, this is a terrific place to stay and I hope to visit again!

Great vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to everything! Nice updated cabin! The stairs were my only complaint, couldn't walk on them without wearing shoes. I did not bring games because one review mentioned you had. But not too many choices especially for younger kids. I recommend sand harbour and Kings beach for those who have not been there before! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin

Home for friends

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfortable for my guest that were attending my wedding. The beds were comfortable and the owners even agreed to let me make payments for the cabin on my pay dates! This experience honestly made my wedding day so much easier. Thank you so much!
