PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 478492, 44013, 383106, 767926, 676395 AND 714734

Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2011 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and cozy downstairs hideaway or the two big decks overlooking a creek.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a hot tub, a grill, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

• Complimentary gift basket on arrival

• Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers

• Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

• Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

• Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

• Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier

• Not over crowded, only two people to a room

• Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

• No keys to lose, choose your own code for our digital lock

Upstairs features a large open plan kitchen and living area. Beautiful slate flooring, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and HDTV above the gas fireplace. Send the kids downstairs to the large flat screen with Playstation 3, the foozball table or the game area. Cook up dinner on the barbecue or soak in the hot tub from the decks overlooking the creek and trees.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed, remote controlled electric fireplace and its own bathroom and two rooms with queen beds, one has a slider to the back deck. Down stairs is lots of space including a forth bedroom (no closet) with a queen bed. There are also two twin futon couches. All your towels and linens are provided

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features alder cabinets and concrete counters. There are brand new fridgidaire appliances including a dishwasher and convection/microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

Relaxing is easy with a cozy fireplace and game and reading nook. The foozball table is great fun. We are wired for entertainment with 37' and 42' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is a good one. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly 10min; Sierra at Tahoe 20min; Kirkwood 35min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 5min; Golf 10min. This is a quiet, flat residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to a sunny wooded area and creek. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and have been drawn to the place ever since. In fact I moved here permanently ten years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer. My wife Angela and I feel very lucky to be able to raise our two kids in this amazing outdoor playground.

Duggan Smith purchased this house in 2010

Why Duggan Smith chose South Lake Tahoe

We bought this place, that is around the corner from where we live, so we would have somewhere for my family to stay when they visit from Australia. I was able to remodel it top to bottom with a great place to vacation being the goal all along.

This house is nice and clean, but very hot upstairs!

  • 3 of 5

I rented this house in the beginning of June. It was very hot upstairs, but very cold downstairs. The temperature was the biggest down fall! I tossed and turned the whole night. The house is clean and nice. There were plenty of kitchen items to use, however the dish soap ran out after 1 day. Not that I would use it, but there weren't any toothbrush or toothpaste like previous vacation rentals I rented in the past. The fireplace would not shut off completely (maybe user error...). The location was perfect, because everything was near by.

Owner's Response: Air conditioning is pretty much unheard of here in Tahoe and rarely needed. On the hottest of days, it can be warm in the house into the evening, but almost always cools off over night. Placing a fan in the window in the late afternoon brings the cool air in quickly. We provide box fans in all the rooms. The downstairs area stays cooler than upstairs. If you feel you need air conditioning you can use the filters in vrbo to find a place, I would confirm with the owners also, as there really are very few homes with it. Duggan

Awesome Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this home and made some wonderful memories. Everything about this home was great. Great communication with the owners, easy check in, easy directions. We had my sister, brother in law, and mom stay with us on the last night and everyone had their own space and bathroom. My mom is very picky and she was very impressed with this home. She has stated that she wants to join us on vacations now so this home has set the precedent. Great area close to everything in case you forget anything. There is nothing preventing you from having a great time at this home. Thank you to the owners for making this a great vacation rental.

Great getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

Duggan has a great property for rental that comes fully stocked with kitchen essentials, bathroom essentials and fun entertainment options! The house was very spacious with 3 rooms upstairs and another room downstairs in the den. The backyard was lovely and with the hot tub right outside the backyard, it served as a great backdrop to the view when it was snowing. Very close to grocery stores, restaurants and Heavenly. I would definitely come back and stay here again. Thanks Duggan!

Comfy house!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights and were so happy we chose this house. Great layout for families with kids..plenty of entertainment for kids downstairs while the adults relax upstairs all while still being able to hear and keep an eye on them. The house is very comfy as well as the beds. From the outside it looks small but is very spacious once you step in! The decor is modern. Kitchen has all pots pans gadgets you need. The booking process was very easy and communication with Duggan was fast. We got snowed in on our last night and were stuck. Duggan helped us out and made arrangements to let us stay one more night to bypass the storm. Don't know where we would've gone as we were literally snow stuck! Thank u so much Duggan, it was a pleasure :)

Very family friendly and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay here. So much we stayed an extra night. The house has everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. We had 4 adults, 3 kids and 2 babies with us and there was plenty of room for everyone. We only left the house to buy some groceries. The kids enjoyed the hill in the backyard for sledding and building snowman. The parents enjoyed the hot tub and the wonderful kitchen for cooking. The basement was the best place for the kids to play and have some independent. We are already planning another trip back. Great property.

Great Tahoe Vacation

  • 5 of 5

In January 6 friends and I stayed in the Roomy Modern in Tahoe for 4 nights. The property is exactly as described (roomy & modern) and perfectly accommodated our group of 6. The location in South Tahoe is hard to beat, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed.

The Hot tub was amazing, and we especially loved the backyard forest views (12 inches of snow our first night there definitely added to the beauty!).

Car: recommended

This is a great neighborhood to be in year round. Quiet, with predominantly local residents surrounding.

In the Winter it is a short drive to all the South Shore ski resorts, snowmobiling and sledding operations. There is lots of open space both directly behind and close by the house for sledding, snow play or snow shoeing. The neighborhood is right off the main highway with flat roads for easy driving.

In the Summer the bike path route to near by beaches, restaurants and attractions runs right by. Nice hiking can be started directly from the house or a short drive away.
