Overview

Lake Tahoe North Shore Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom (Queen) + Twin Convertible bed, 1 Bath, compact kitchen

Located 1.3 miles from the luxury of Tahoe City restaurants and shops, you will find 'Sapphire Vista' lake front studio with clean modern lines which create a soothing Sierra escape. In the summer, lounge on a gorgeous beach. In the winter, drive to premier mountain resorts 10-15 minute's drive. All seasons, 'Sapphire Vista' mandates F-U-N, while the cozy and peaceful studio with feather-down blankets promise some deep z-z-z-z-z's.

Serene, modern, with a brand new well appointed interior, this retreat by the lake offers some serious get-away for the budget-minded couple or small family. Guests here appreciate a more modern aesthetic, but also are comfortable in the cozy quarters of 450 sq. ft. Whether for use as a honeymoon apartment, 'Sapphire Vista' will be a refreshingly affordable and chic take on the Sierra's most dazzling destination, Lake Tahoe.

Please note, the hot tub is no longer available as mentioned in the reviews.

About Judy Anderson, Reservations Manager

Owners of the property, husband wife, occupy a large 'Old Tahoe' home on same lot as the rental apartment, but assure guests of complete privacy from the main home. As a painter and actor couple, they take deep sustained inspiration from the great Lake Tahoe and are happy to share this special property that has been in the family for 83 years.

Judy Anderson, Reservations Manager purchased this apartment in 1927

Why Judy Anderson, Reservations Manager chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

In 1927, the grandparents of the husband purchased 4 lake front lots and built a large summer home on the 2 main lots. Therefore privacy is afforded the main house and the rental apartment because of the vacant lot on one side of the buildings.

What makes this apartment unique

Privacy, comfort. Access to lakefront beach.

Event and wedding site (Apartment in included)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our time spent at Tahoe Studio was delightful. The location, grounds, views, and amenities were lovely. The pier, beach, vistas spectacular.



The Studio is beautiful and creatively designed to accommodate two or three people. We had a special time because our two little grandsons loved it, especially sleeping on the floor in sleeping bags. Hide and Seek was perfect; walks on the beach lovely. Relaxing on the pier was perfect.



Our hosts, the Brays, were generous and helpful. I have recommended Tahoe Studio to my friends and hope they visit and enjoy it as much as we did. We plan to return as soon as we can!

Great location for this comfy studio

  • 5 of 5

Only a couple miles from Tahoe City, but in a quiet neighborhood just steps from a park/beach - this is a great rental! Bed was very comfy and the limited kitchen was perfect for our needs. As with many properties in Tahoe, there is no A/C, but they have many fans to cool the unit. Staying at the studio, you have access to a dock on the lake just steps from the studio with beautiful views. Unfortunately, our dog would rather swim than sit on the dock, so relaxing on the dock was not really possible for us. I would have liked to relax in some chairs in the backyard a little further from the water, but since the owners live here, I didn't want to intrude. I would encourage the owners to add a page of info to their welcome binder (a nice plus) that describes the dos (and don'ts) for the studio. It's very possible we could have used the chairs, I just didn't want to do so without permission.

Quaint and clean

  • 5 of 5

I felt instantly comfortable, like I was staying at a relative's place. Pretty decor, comfy bed, convenient to find and drive (or bike) into Tahoe City. Gorgeous view of the lake only steps away. I'd love to go back when I'm not on a deadline so I can partake in the "relaxing" part. Darlene is a peach.

Our trip to this beautiful location for the 4th of July weekend was great!!! The place is clean, adorable and the bed is comfy. We had a lovely time. Watching the fireworks off the deck was a lovely treat!!! Our little cockapoo completely enjoyed himself too. I only wish we could of stayed longer. We will return and we cannot wait!!!

Thank you so very much for opening up your lovely home to us.

Beautiful location on Lake Tahoe.

  • 4 of 5

The studio apartment is located at a perfect location - right on the lake and close to Tahoe City. It was quiet and accessible. The hosts were very kind to provide us with access to the lake via their personal dock, beach chairs and anything else to make our stay comfortable. It was so much nicer than a hotel room. There was some confusion about our date of arrival so the studio had not been cleaned. The owner was apologetic and did everything she could to make us comfortable.

Cosy and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Darlene & Warren made us feel welcome. We loved this cosy and very very comfy place. It has everything you need. It was the perfect size for our little family of 4. Darlene brought some toys for our kids which added to the fun! We would rent it again and recommend it!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway in Tahoe. Close enough to the mountains for skiing and Tahoe City for dinner. There is also a cute bakery a short walk from the studio. We will definitely be be back!
