This can be your home for a wonderful stay in South Lake Tahoe! It is clean, updated, and set up for your every comfort and enjoyment. To balance your adventure-filled South Lake Tahoe days, your home comes with an updated kitchen that a chef would delight in, great entertainment possibilities in the form of high speed WiFi Internet, a stereo with an iPod dock, cable television with HBO, Showtime and Cinemax, Play Station 2 with various games, 3 televisions (a large flat screen in the living room and upstairs master bedroom with full cable, one in the queen with DVD capabilities, and one in the downstairs playroom with DVD and VHS capabilities), and an easy to use gas fireplace to instantly make your home warm, cozy and inviting.

What makes this house unique

We love this home because it is centrally located to all that Lake Tahoe has to offer. We are about 1 mile away from the California Base Lodge for Heavenly Ski Resort, and it is possible to walk to Ski Run Boulevard and take the shuttle from there. We are also a block away from Bijou Community Park that has frisbee golf, a regular golf course, a kids playground, a bike park, a bbq area, and a beautiful meadow to walk through. We are also just a few blocks from the Powerline Trail across from Pioneer Trail that is fabulous for running and mountain biking, and will take you up to High Meadow, Starr Lake, and wherever else you would like to go.

Wonderful, adorable little cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly sized for our little group of four, but there were plenty of beds for a larger group. The house was adorably updated and outfitted with games, toys for kids, DVD/VHS, and cable/netflix. It was also very close to the main drag, making getting dinner, walking around/shopping, grabbing groceries a breeze. The house is also in a very quiet residential area, which made evenings at the cabin very relaxing. The owner was also great with communication. We will make this location a go-to for our future South Lake stays!!

Great for a family getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our ski weekend. We were a party of four adults and two kids and the home fit us all comfortably. Loved that it was family friendly - there are no photos in the description but there was an extra playroom full of games, books, and a TV/VCR combo with an assortment of movies. It was a pleasant surprise and kept my kids fully entertained. Heavenly was a short drive away, as well as all the shops/restaurants along Lake Tahoe Blvd. Great, convenient location!

Better than I expected - a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and all the instructions on how the tv etc worked were very detailed and helpful. We stayed at the house for a couple of days to attend a wedding nearby and were pleasantly surprised at the location (close to town and nearby safeway/restaurants) as well as how great the house was. My kids immediately went to the play room and fell in love with playing with all the toys and games in there. This was probably the best part for us because our 3 and 7 year old were able to entertain themselves for hours by playing with all the toys. We had a very nice time and any questions we had were quickly answered by Ivan via email. Would highly recommend this house and would stay again if we had the chance. thanks so much for having us in your home, we had such a great time!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Becka House. The house is cozy, well equipped, well maintained, and located in a quiet neighborhood.

The owner was very responsive and provided great customer services.

I would surely recommend it; it is a great place to stay in while in South Lake Tahoe.

Perfect get away home for families or a group

  • 5 of 5

We went with 6 people, including a 2 1-2 year old. We all had a great time. The home is located 5 mins always from restaurants, the casinos, and shops. Heavenly was also about 5mins. The home is beautiful, and very well kept. The fireplace is wonderful, the kitchen is very large and accommodating, and the rooms and bathrooms are modern and clean. We took advantage of all the snow in the back yard and played back there. I would highly recommend this lovely home. We can't wait to come back. Also the owner is very easy to talk to and replys quickly to any inquiry. Five stars!

The house is ideally located in close proximity to all that wonderful South Lake Tahoe has to offer. It is across the street from a beautiful, pine forest, and just down the street from Bijou Community Park, which has a children's park, Frisbee golf, regular golf, skate park, and wonderful areas to hike and enjoy the great South Lake Tahoe air. The house is also located very close to Heavenly Ski Resort, Lake Tahoe, casinos, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, restaurants, boating, cross-country skiing, sightseeing and shopping, the movie theater, and coffee shops!

In short, it is the best of all worlds. Spend your days recreating outdoors and your evenings enjoying this wonderful mountain home with all the ease, comforts, and amenities of modern life!

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, wildlife viewing, spa, mini golf
