About Sheila Cepero

We are a young family based in the San Francisco Bay area who love to spend time in Lake Tahoe area skiing, mountain biking and hiking, and generally getting away from it all. When we are not using our mountain home we rent out to other families. This is a perfect home for families or large groups of friends.

Sheila Cepero purchased this house in 2013

Close to all Tahoe City local amenities, centrally located yet private, fantastic forest settings situated at the end of road with no traffic. Access to hundreds of hiking/biking paths from our house, no driving required.

What makes this house unique

Ski in/ski out at Nordic Ski Center. Good sized home with several vacation features Good forest sledging runs at back of cabin. Good wood burning fireplace

Thanksgiving in Tahoe City

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in Tahoe City. The local area affords much to do. The house was perfect for our group of 9 staying over as well as additions of a few Thanksgiving Day orphans for dinner. Everyone enjoyed being in the kitchen to help with meal preparation and/or just relaxing and playing games and pool. The property was very clean and well maintained which allowed us time to just have fun.

We loved the home. Very Quiet neighborhood . Close to every thing from shopping to hiking trails. Room for every one. We had 9 adults and it was comfortable in all aspects. There was plenty of room even if we had 4 or five more people. Plenty of beds. Thanks again Shiela

Great Tahoe summer fun

  • 5 of 5

The listing for the Highlands Drive property on line was very accurate in its description of location, layout, amenities, user instructions, etc. We rented two houses in the Highlands for a family reunion that included a total of 28 people. We easily accommodated 16 of those people at this house. The property was clean, well-maintained, and welcoming. The person handling the spa and the cleaning crew were very pleasant. We are seriously thinking about going back to this unit again for another reunion or smaller gathering. The unit was set up to handle all 28 people for dinner one night in the dining, deck, kitchen, and living area. The kitchen was set up to easily handle the prep work for such a meal. The pool room was the big attraction inside the house, while the easy access to mountain biking and the paved bike trail along Highway 28 was the big attraction outside. We visited Meek's Bay beach a couple times and also went to Sand Harbor, both great beaches. Because of construction, the trips were about a half hour away. The setting in the woods was great with an easy path to the other house on Cedarwood Drive. I understand from the cleaning crew that the owners are contemplating some upgrades in the near future, which should make it even more appealing. It was a great stay.

Great Weekend Getaway for a Group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 was up in Tahoe for a race and to get away from the city for a weekend. The layout is perfect for a group this size, with all the living spaces upstairs, and the bedrooms/gameroom downstairs. We cooked great big meals, and had several people working in the kitchen at once, and when we sat down to eat, we had the option of sitting at the formal dining room table, the eat in kitchen, or even the table in the living room when the game was on. The house was well stocked, and the owner is very quick to respond if you can't find something. The house is not located right on the beach or ski resort, but they are a close enough drive, and the house is in a nice/quiet neighborhood. We will definitely look to stay here again in the future.

Perfect for family reunions!

  • 5 of 5

This home couldn't have been more perfect for our family! We had 4 generations together plus family friends for my daughter's wedding in Tahoe City, and the house held us all very comfortably. It was beautiful, very well equipped, and clean. This was my first time using VRBO and I was a bit nervous, but everything was amazing, and I will definitely stay again. Loved taking my coffee out onto the back deck overlooking the National Forest every morning, and whopping my nephew and son in pool :). The owner of this property was very responsive and terrific to work with. THANK YOU SHEILA for everything!

Perfect for Large Family!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 16 (8 adults and 8 children ages 18 months to 14) fit perfectly in this large home! We had a wonderful week enjoying the quiet mountain location and the short drive to the lake. Some highlights were a downstairs game room where the kids learned how to play pool and spent time together as cousins playing Mario Cart (we brought our own Wii). The hot tub was very enjoyable and relaxing. The deck off the kitchen was great for coffee in the morning and BBQing dinner. It was also a good location for the kids to eat. Plenty of space for everyone! A very beautiful home -- great atmosphere! We would recommend this home to our friends.
