Construct a snowfort and have an epic snowball fight! Whether it’s relaxing under the stars on the overwater dining platform as you toast the end to another perfect day, or watching the starlight on the glistening snow, or catching some rays on the double rooftop deck, cooking in our amazingly appointed gourmet kitchen, sipping cocktails on a comfy sofa around our firepit, or watching the sailboats drift past on the lagoon from the family room, or on the lake from the roofdeck, even if it’s exercising your option to do nothing at all…Chateau Reve D’Or is the perfect home while you are away...
You will sleep like a baby in our pillowy beds after a memorable day of adventures. Perhaps you took your boat out from our triple boat dock, played pool or ping pong in the media room, or caught the sunrise while using our kayaks on the lake or enjoyed a leisurely paddle in the lagoons.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012
Why choose Chateau Reve D’Or over all the other Tahoe Keys options out there?
We could say because we have spared no expense in making our dream come true…that we came here on our honeymoon in 1988, fell in love with the beauty of the gorgeous lake and mountains of this year-round resort town, shopped for years for the perfect lot in the Tahoe Keys with killer views of mountains and water, and eventually bought and remodeled this house…filled it with beautiful furnishings and lots of fun stuff to enjoy both indoors and outdoors...thus creating our Castle of the Golden Dream…which we now share with a lucky few.
Why did we pick the Tahoe Keys? And why this property??
That's easy...though it took a long time to happen. After years of vacationing on Lake Tahoe, we found a unique, waterfront community called Tahoe Keys. Year after year, we rented homes here and came to know the profound joy of living on the waterfront in such a great community, surrounded by stunning natural beauty. It took years to find a house with the elevation we required to preserve those killer mountain and lake views we couldn't do without, plus the home size we needed, coupled with the lot size we wanted to ensure a big open yard, and the amenities that we craved, like the glass railing double roofdeck, boat dock and dining platform...all of which are rare here as they are extremely hard to get approval to build. (New boatdocks are currently forbidden as are many roofdecks).
There is no other community like Tahoe Keys on Lake Tahoe and it's extremely unlikely another like it will ever be built; thus our property has both a uniqueness and a rarity to match it's unparalleled beauty. In short, it was perfect for us.
Tahoe Keys and our Chateau Reve D'Or is truly our Castle of the Golden Dream...a little piece of paradise on this lovely blue lake in the sky that we call home; we love it here...
And we feel strongly that you will too!

We are sad to have our week in Tahoe come to an end. Thank you for the
use of your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time kayaking and biking.
The lawn games were a lot of fun too! Thank you!!
We found this house while looking for a place to rent for a family vacation. It looked great on line so we decided to give it a try.
First we were pleased that it was located at the end of a cul de sac and there was little traffic to contend with during our walks and bicycle rides.
Entering the home quickly confirmed that we had made a good decision to stay here. The open floor plan allowing you to look out into the Key channels and the mountains beyond we're wonderful. The kitchen was large and accommodating yet allowing us to entertain our family while we prepared our meals. The high end appliances and finishes showed the owners were certain to provide the guests a first class experience. We spent the nights playing games at the large dining room table and the retire to the couches to relax and close out the day. But that was only after we enjoyed the roof top patio and the sunsets and night sky. Definitely the best 360 views of the mountains of all the surrounding homes.
We used the master, and master bedroom, on the main floor. Both bedrooms were better appointed than fine luxury hotels. They were clean and the beds oh so comfortable. Did we sleep so well because of the beds or the clean mountain air? Probably a little of both!
The backyard was situated so that we could enjoy watching the boaters come and go, and they waved to us throughout the day. We were able to enjoy the outdoor patio and fire pit when we relaxed in the early evenings. And during the day we were able to use the kayaks to enjoy the keys and paddle out to the lake. Take advantage of the kayaks, you won't be disappointed. The yard allowed us to play badminton, lounge on the large hammock, but I really liked having my morning coffee out on the patio attached to the dock.
This house was perfectly situated for us as it was close to hiking and biking trails, and town when we needed to get groceries. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and we look forward to a return trip soon. This is not your average rental property. You will be impressed with all that it has to offer and then some.
Can not wait until our next time!
What an amazing get away for our family. The house felt like home away from home with all the amenities the owners left for us to use as well as the way it was tastefully decorated and clean. So homey and beautiful. It did not feel like a rental home, it felt like staying at the Ritz. The location is prime, and plenty of room for all of the kids to spread out and relax. We honestly can not wait to come back! I highly recommend!
I'll be frank. I adore my home and find it difficult to feel truly cozy anywhere else. This location exceeded ALL of my expectations. I will return regularly! Bring the entire family or make it a romantic retreat! There are amenities to accommodate all visitors! The location on the canal is perfect for a personal retreat, with close access to the lake entrance. Enjoy a sunrise or sunset kayak (there are 3, so go with a friend!) and return to your gourmet kitchen to create an amazing waterfront feast. The rooms are ample and the bathrooms ROOMY! You can watch TV in the tub if you are really in for a good soak! If having 'fun' is on your priority list, you will find your tools here! Bikes, pool table, games, etc. The owners recognize "fun" and will make necessary accommodations to meet your needs. It is apparent they care about your experience and want to develop the relationship for return visitors. What could be better!? South Lake Tahoe can speak for itself. Enjoy a bike ride to see the area's history and have a yummy rum drink at a waterside café while listening to live music. I will even recommend the local bike shop who tightened my handlebars FOR FREE and wished me a beautiful day! I would recommend this beautiful retreat to my best friend
Excellent! Ideal location in the Tahoe Keys, with easy water access to the lake – with a floating dock, no less. Nice lawn, with a deck overlooking the dock and water makes for an ideal location for an intimate gathering. Kayaks, badminton and accessories are provided for your use while staying at this breathtaking home. The secluded roof top deck with a 360 degree view of the lake and mountains provides beautiful sunsets, and an excellent location for stargazing. The breeze on the roof will keep you cool while sunbathing, but will require a light jacket for evening and nighttime activities during the summer. I’ve not been here in the winter, so it might be a little cold up on the top deck but, then again, the view is worth it!
The house itself is a large and elegant, tri-level, with a place for all your indoor activities. A game room downstairs, with a bar area and access to the lawn; living room, dining room and a gourmet kitchen in the middle; bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. There is room for two in the kitchen, plus two small bar areas, to allow for additional guests to visit while others are cooking. Robust, comfortable furnishings complete the home nicely. It will feel like home the minute you put your bags down!
The description and photos in the listing were very accurate. The property is very well maintained. The owners were a joy to work with.
This home surpassed my expectations! The pictures don't begin to do it justice. First of all this is truly a home. It is furnished and outfitted like a real home, not a rental unit. This home is luxurious on all levels; bedding, bathrooms, kitchen equipment, outdoor amenities. The house is on the water and kayaks are supplies so that your can paddle straight out to the lake. The over water dining is beautiful. The badminton net is set up in the yard. The back yard is spacious. Unlike most other rental property the owners actually give you a gift basket when you arrive and have basic condiments in the kitchen. Everything in the kitchen is high end! Beautiful Le Creuset cookware, Kitchen Aide stand mixer, espresso machine (as well as a single serve machine), amazing dinnerware and glasses. The house is immaculate and extremely well maintained. The roof top deck is amazing, an ideal place for your morning coffee to evening cocktails.
The layout of the house is fabulous. There is what I can only call a "man cave" downstairs outfitted with a pool table as well as a TV for watching movies or sports! There are two bedrooms downstairs which would make this ideal for sharing this house with another family. Upstairs are two bedrooms including the luxurious master bedroom and bath. The upstairs living space is huge. It is open concept so that there is plenty of room for everyone to hang out upstairs. The balcony off the back was an amazing space to eat dinner and enjoy views of the mountains.
There is so much to do in South Lake Tahoe. We enjoyed hiking and loved biking with the bicycles provided by the owners. The owners have thought of everything you would need to truly enjoy your time there.
I would recommend this house to anyone! By far the nicest home we have ever rented. This is ideal for families or groups. This home is a tremendous value for the money. The owners were lovely and as stated before they have thought of everything to make your stay easy and enjoyable. I plan to stay there again.
This is our second time staying at this beautiful house. You won't want for anything. Amazing views, new appliances, and the house is amazingly equipped with everything you could want for a luxury vacation. There is a really big backyard for the kids to play during the day and a really nice firepit for sipping wine and making smores. The dock is very large and nice and the kids loved using the kayaks and fishing. The owner is very organized and pleasant and always responds quickly to any questions you might have.
Our home is only 10 mins from Eagle Falls and Emerald Bay as well as Angora Lake and fantastic hiking and biking trails. Tallac Historic site is just practically out our back gate and in winter you can cross country ski on the lakeshore! Fireworks on the lake at 4th of July viewed from the Keys beach or our roofdeck are amazing.
