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 tin 2013 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 kids, Max and Paloma in this amazing outdoor playground. We enjoy skiing and snowboarding Heavenly with the kids. I have begun exploring the back country snowboarding for a great combination of exercise, nature bliss and great powder riding. In the Summer we take in the beaches and hikes as a family.
Duggan Smith purchased this House in 2010
Why Duggan Smith chose Tahoe Island
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.

Great for Families
We brought our children and their children up for a week and had a great time. The yard was perfect for the kids, ages 2 and 4, and they loved the swing set. The kitchen was also great to cook in and sit around and enjoy time with the family. Duggan was very responsive when we called him for a couple minor issues.
We had a great family vacation. The house was amazing and the kids loved the backyard playground. We will definitely be back.
Absolutely wonderful location. It’s fun, private, and close to everything. The host is incredible... he even brought us a bag of ice when I couldn’t get the ice machine to work. Oh, and he got it to work too!
Stay here and you won’t regret it.
Love the view and the location, close by to many recreational places and land marks at Lake Tahoe. Nice for family getaways and adventure seekers.
great backyard & well-equipped kitchen
Perfect for families
We had a wonderful stay. The house was large, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked. Our grandchildren loved the backyard and the adults really enjoyed the hot tub. Definitely will be staying there again. Easy check in and the host stopped by to make sure that everything was okay. Definitely a five star rating.
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.
