About Joyce and Bob Miller- owners. Please call me directly for personal service.

My husband and I live in San Jose, and have been renting our vacation rental homes in Tahoe since 2003. We often have our guests tell us that staying in one of our two homes is more like enjoying a friend's Tahoe Cabin than a rental house. I make it our policy to have a beautifully clean, nicely decorated Tahoe Style home for your mountain vacation, winter or summer.

Joyce and Bob Miller- owners. Please call me directly for personal service. purchased this house in 2003

Why Joyce and Bob Miller- owners. Please call me directly for personal service. chose Carnelian Bay

The Agate Bay neighborhood in Carnelian Bay is a peaceful, quiet area, and our lot is 1/3 acre. The large space between the homes gives our house a lot of privacy,made even more private by our fully fenced back yard. This house feels very spacious, with a living room and a separate family room in a different wing. It makes it very private for a big group.

What makes this house unique

This property is SO peaceful with it's huge fenced in back yard, rock gardens and green lawns. The back patio is a perfect spot for summer barbeques. There are sunny and shady areas to choose from in the back yard. The neighborhood is a quiet residential area with all large lots for privacy. You can walk to the beach, Gar Woods, and several other restaurants. Bring your well behaved dog for a small nightly pet fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Joyce -

Thank you for the email and update on the deposit. We had a GREAT time at the house. It was the perfect spot for everyone, especially the dogs who were endlessly entertained by the chipmunks in the yard. Thankfully, there were no fatalities. I'm still adjusting to being back at work and will happily post on your guestbook.

I was heartbroken to leave the lake and am hoping to make this trip a family tradition. We will definitely keep you in mind for our next tahoe trip whether it's snowboarding or wakeboarding.

Thanks again.

Homey and great for families with kids

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house with one other family and the layout was great - 2 separate family rooms with a tv and plenty of seating in each meant we could have an adult lounge and a kids hangout. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of dishes, pots and pans. The kitchen layout was a bit tight so we had to prepare meals in stages but there was plenty of space at the table to fit all 9 of us together.

The location was terrific - easy to get to lots of activities at Squaw, Northstar and Incline. Our first night we wanted an easy take-out meal and called in an order to CB's restaurant closeby - the food was fantastic and generous portions.

Miller's Carnelian Bay Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The Miller's cabin was very nice with a cozy "cabiny" feel to it. Good furnishings, comfortable sofas and chairs, etc. Two family rooms was awesome. The location is very close to King's Beach and Tahoe City in a nice residential area. It was very easy to work with the Miller's and we had a great time. We really enjoyed the hot tub!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here with our 11 month old and dog. This place perfect for the family, we loved that it even had a high chair and pack and play available for our kid and an amazing backyard for our dog. It was super close to a lot of nice hiking trails and the place was fantastic and had everything we would need. Amazing place that we hope to stay at again!!

Large and well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late May and found this home to be well laid out and such a great location. The added bonus was the fenced yard for my Mom's husky who enjoyed running around freely on the property's large foot print. We enjoyed the assortment of games that were available as well. This home could easily accommodate 10 people or a large family and no one would feel too cramped. We would definitely book this house again in the future!
