South Lake Tahoe House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, loft, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 20

This lovely property has 4,750 sq. feet and comfortably sleeps 20. It's ideal for families or groups wanting to get away and enjoy all Tahoe has to offer. Here, you will be close to skiing, shopping, restaurants, gambling, ice skating, hiking, water sports, snow play and so much more. Even so, you may not want to leave the house! With plenty of games, a pool table, 2 large flat screens, 5 smaller tv's, wii, cable, internet, ping-pong, mini-foosball, and comfy couches, you'll have plenty of indoor entertainment! If you'd rather go exploring, there's paradise outside the back door. In the winter, it's perfect for sledding and snow ball fights. Best of all, you can send out the kiddos and easily see them from inside the house! In the summer, there's plenty of hiking close by: even a small creek not far. The house has a beautifully appointed kitchen, with tables and seating for 20. There's a patio/deck for when the weather is nice, and 3 gas fireplaces to keep cozy when it's not!

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people stay at this property and we still had plenty of room for at least two more!

Not too far from town, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and beautiful Tahoe scenery. We had all of our meals al fresco on the back deck everyday, it was too beautiful not to.

A perfect and lovely home inside and out, with plenty of trails right in the neighborhood to go hiking and cycling.

Owner is extremely accommodating and so kind to work with.

Will definitely stay here again!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house-plenty of room for 11 adults-beautiful view of the mountains and saw coyotes in the meadow below. Quiet street and access to walking trails-who could ask for more!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was such an amazing place to stay. My family made some beautiful memories here for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and we are so thankful that it turned out so well. One thing that I didn't realize from the photos is how phenomenal the view is from the back deck. It's just breath taking. the house was very large and had everything we needed. If make another trip to Lake Tahoe, we will be seeking this home. It was just fantastic!

This home is highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very nice and accommodating. We had such a wonderful time staying at their home. Their kitchen is well stocked. When we have another group trip to Lake Tahoe in the future this place will be on top of our list.

Well-suited for a large group/family

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as described online. Very clean. Inviting. All the necessary utensils (and more) were available in the kitchen.

We had a large group, 8 adults and 8 children, so we cooked most of our meals in the home. This property will definitely remain

in our file for future trips.

Needs some attention

  • 3 of 5

This is a very nice house with a great layout in the game room area but there are a lot of things that are not up to standards and really disappointed me. You can really tell this is managed by the owner and not a property management company and not really kept up. I can say that the housekeeper thought we were arriving the next day so the house was not exactly ready but that would only excuse a few things on the list….

Molding juice in the pantry

Broken beer bottle in the snow on the deck

BBQ was so dirty it was unusable

Spider webs everywhere (stairways, light fixtures and bedroom windows that also had a huge black spider in it)

Mouse trap in the upstairs bedroom

No sand in the shuffle board table

Broken tips on the pool sticks with no super glue to fix them

Foosball had missing handles

Master toilet was dirty with stains

Missing fan or light fixtures with wires hanging out

Garbage disposal does not work properly – no potato peels or you will clog the entire sink and possibly pay for a plumber

Walls are filthy on the stair cases

Dead batteries in the remotes

Screen doors are all fallen off

Light over the stove does not work and the kitchen is really dim so it is needed to cook

Fireplace in the master is not working

Very dusty

Owner's Response: We have enjoyed the snowfall here in the 2015/2016 season and been booked solid since summer ended. Unfortunately, I did make a mistake when I scheduled the housekeeper and she was not quite ready for these guests since she thought they were arriving the next day. We immediately comped them $100 for their inconvenience and the housekeeper finished up shortly. I do agree with this renter; the house could use a “deep cleaning.” There have been 16+ renters in the house 3 or more days a week for a couple of months now, and that can take a toll. With that said, we have weekly housekeeping and the house is kept in great condition. Our housekeeper does her best to check for broken items when the renters leave, but occasionally things get overlooked. Since almost all of the time the entire deposit is refunded, I too am disappointed that we had to replace the items which the previous renter broke. As the snow melts, items which were not easily seen are revealed. When this renter called to let me know that the drain was clogged and after finding out that they had put all of their potato peels down the drain, we talked her through fixing this to avoid being charged for a plumber. All fireplaces work and there is a manual in the kitchen which explains how to operate a gas fireplace if you are not familiar with doing so. We appreciate all feedback, the positive and even the negative, because we strive to have a top notch rental and this helps us to do so. We have added these items to our check list for our housekeeper to watch for and will have the remote batteries changed quarterly and light bulbs on hand. We enjoy staying here ourselves and take pride in it as it is our own, because it is Please see additional reviews or contact the owner if you have any questions.

This beautiful property is located just minutes from all the action that South Lake Tahoe has to offer! We are within 7 miles of Heavenly Ski Resort, Heavenly Village, casinos, restaurants, shopping, golfing and Lake Tahoe itself.

For skiers, not only is the property close to Heavenly, but we are only 12 miles from Sierra-at-Tahoe, and within 30 miles of both Kirkwood and Homewood.

If golf is your game, there's many courses in the area. Lake Tahoe Course is only 2 miles from the property, and the beautiful Edgewood is only 8 miles away!

For those who are looking for a fun night out, all of Statline Nevada's casinos are situated within 7 miles. Also, Heavenly Village, with its movie theatre, outdoor ice rink, and many shops and restaurants, is even closer!

On the property itself, there is plenty of fun to be had; all three stories have beautiful views of a field behind the house that during snowy months becomes a winter wonderland! It's perfect for both snow play and summer hiking.
