About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1 to 5). Best price and location!

**If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, I respond really fast via iPhone. It says that I take more than a few days to respond, I reply directly from the email so VRBO doesn't pick up that response rate. But I do respond really quickly if the condo is available.

***Also, we have another condo a couple of minutes away from this one, I can let you know about availability for that one too, it's not listed on VRBO but on another rental site.

Hi, thanks for viewing our family condo!

Our condo is a two story unit, has two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms and it sleeps 5. Condo is a two level unit with all the comforts of home including a new gas (operates by a thermostat) fireplace surrounded by bricks, well-equipped (with tons of spices) kitchen, private gas BBQ grill on the deck. We have fast Wi-Fi, cable TV with DVD/BD, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Linens are provided. Finally, we also have a secure ski-locker. We provide our guests with cleaned linens and towels, cleaning service is professionally done of course.

Bedding consists of one queen bed in the master bedroom, one double (full size) and two singles as bunks in the second bedroom. It fits 1 to 5 people.

Great central location, calm and surrounded by pines, but close to everything:

-- 1 min drive to Heavenly Heavenly's California Lodge and entrance

-- 2 mins drive to Lake Tahoe shoreline / 15 to 20 mins walk

-- 3 mins drive to Stateline entertainment & nightlife

For summer, it is about 15 to 20 minutes walk to the Lake via Ski Run or a quick 2 minutes drive to the Lake. It is away from the hustle and bustle of S. Tahoe's main road since it's high up the hill of Ski Run Blvd. You can relax on our cozy decks (front or back), there is also a gas bbq grill for you to use on the deck too. For winter, this unit is a block away from Heavenly's California Lodge, which it's a quick 1/2 minute drive to their free secret parking lot and entrance.

We have put our heart and soul into remodeling and furnishing our condo with a modern feel but maintaining its quintessential cabin flavor. As you can see in our pictures, it has vaulted ceiling upstairs and pine ceiling all over. On top of that, we've installed in a thermostat controlled fireplace, so we all can sit next to the fireplace with a warm mug of goodness and a book. There are also loads of board games if you don't want to watch cable tv. Our kitchen is pretty well equipped. We welcome you to come enjoy everything that Tahoe has to offer!

We find our place comfortable, relaxing, cozy, convenient and charming! We don't live in this condo, so you don't have to worry about living in someone else's space. We go there to ski by winter and enjoy the lake by summer whenever we can. We hope to share our lovely piece of Heavenly with you too, cheers!

**All rates +10% South Lake Tahoe tax + $90 cleaning fee.

**This is not a hotel and it's a family home. We welcome nice guests that would treat our home like theirs and would respect our family home.

About Michelle

My name is Michelle. We hope you will enjoy our family condo as much as we do. We go to Tahoe as much as we can because we love to ski by winter and spend time at the lake by summer. So when we aren't there, we would like to open up our favorite spot to others like you to enjoy.

Thank you!

Michelle purchased this condo in 2010

Why Michelle chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

We just love Tahoe and have been coming for years. For this condo, our family love the central location with quick access to the Lake, skiing and nightlife, all set amongst pines. I'm sure you will agree! We bought this condo because it's close to the convenient stores (Raley's), restaurants, and casinos. It's a very convenient location for summer and winter activities. For example, there is a Heavenly GO (Blue GO) stop right in front of our condo, so which means we never have to stress about finding parking at Heavenly Resort! That itself is priceless! All we have to do is put on our snowboarding/ski boots, no longer need to find a parking space or renting a locker!

Our family members are from London and San Francisco, so we are very used to walking to places, we specifically looked to buy a condo in Tahoe that is walking distance to everything. If you enjoy having nice stroll, then this is it for you! There are also parking spaces for people who prefer to drive!

We hope you will choose us, thank you so much!

What makes this condo unique

-walking distance to many places

-Next Heavenly ski resort

-No need to stress about finding a parking space

-You will love our fondue set

-BBQ pit and picnic table are just right outside for summer fun!

-Newly remodeled and everything (furniture, household stuff) are all new

-Very modern looking bed linen (no need to worry about flowery motel bedsheets, yuck) and comfortable bed

-Cable TV, dvd/bd player, & fast wi-fi

-Many more!! Just call/e-mail us

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family really enjoyed this beautiful condo because the price was very reasonable and it was fairly close to everything. The condo was newly furnished like it said on their website. The owner was extremely friendly, honest, fair, and accommodating on the phone. Overall, we are definitely happy with their service and condo. We look forward to booking another family vacation when the ski season comes. Thank you!

Heavenly Resort is only a short 3 minute drive from our condo. I will give info to the secret local FREE parking lot for Heavenly, you can ski and and out to there (when snow is good), woohoo! You won't need the Gondola.

Great location, very comfortable, well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Our Winter stay with 2 adults and 3 children (aged 15, 13, and 11) was very comfortable and warm. The location is quiet, easily accessible by car from out of town, and getting into and out of the apartment is easy (we had lots of snow during our stay). It was well equipped in the kitchen and bedrooms, and clean upon our arrival. Communication with the owner was excellent. We would certainly stay there again.

Perfect place. Very nice communication with owner.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Michelle's condo for 5 nights during Jan 2015. We had a great time at this condo, very close to Heavenly resort and quiet environment, yet just a few minutes drive to a nightlife community. Mitchelle is a very welcome host we have ever met. We will definitely come back to this lovely condo.

Great Condo That Promises & Delivers Everything!

  • 5 of 5

I can't help but leave a glowing review for this condo! We really appreciated Michelle's hospitality and were so happy to find her listing. My husband and I would love to come back and visit again. They were such lovely hosts and I loved all the improvements and artistic touches they added to the house. The painted accent walls, mountain mural and custom artwork were great to look at.

There are also lots of informative tips labeled around the house, which helped to get us settled in. Even the cabinets have photo inventories of the kitchen items, so you know where to put things back and take stock of what they provided. Genius!

There was a great welcome scrapbook which was unbelievably thorough and super creative. That in itself was amazing. Definitely check it out. They also left us a cute welcome gift of shampoos and snacks... WOW! The condo was immaculate and there were plenty of clean towels, too. The digital cable & TV were great entertainment after skiing and we found ourselves getting comfortable on the great big couch in front of the toasty new fireplace each night.

We also had a mishap where we broke something and offered to pay for it, but Michelle was too kind to accept repayment. Really, I can't think of a better experience I've had. Would totally recommend staying here! Next time we'll bring friends who could use the 2nd bedroom! Ann

Perfect Size and Location!

  • 5 of 5

Every year my parents, brothers, and I take a weekend trip, usually to the Capitola/Santa Cruz area. This year we decided to do the first annual "Snow Edition" of our yearly gathering, and stayed at this condo in Lake Tahoe. It was absolutely PERFECT for our needs! The location's proximity to the lake, the casinos, restaurants, etc can't be beat; the condo is equipped with all the essentials; the owners do a great job of laying everything out and offering pertinent tips and information; and the condo itself is really cute and has nice personal touches. We'll definitely be coming back to stay here!

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to Lake Tahoe for a skiing trip and had a lovely time at Michelle's condo. Michelle was easy to work with and quick to respond to all emails I sent. The condo was very clean, comfortable and spacious enough for the four of us. My boys enjoyed the games that were there. The bus to Heavenly was right across the street as indicated in the description. The gas fireplace worked great and heated up the condo very quickly. The only suggestion I would have, is to include better instructions for it. It was easy once we had figured it out, but as we had never operated one before, we were a little confused at first. I would definitely recommend Michelle's condo for a visit to the South Lake Tahoe area
