South Lake Tahoe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Looking for the perfect getaway for skiing? Look no further as this South Lake Tahoe home is only 1.6 miles from Heavenly Valley Ski Resort. Renovated in 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2010, this 2700+ sq ft home is 5 bedrooms 3 full baths of contemporary modern living.

Added for 2016 is an electrical upgrade for our Tesla owners to charge at night in the comforts of the garage. Yes, we've heard the suggestions and we've added this feature to our home to encourage our reduction to the carbon footprint of the house. Situated for either side of the garage, bring your Model S or X to Tahoe and enjoy the electricity to get you back to your home by charging the night before. Don't fuss with the gas and charge at our home while you sleep comfortably in this luxury getaway.

Also, be sure to take advantage of our most recently renovated bathrooms allowing luxury during the winter and relaxation throughout the year. With the addition of radiant floor heating in the bathrooms, glass enclosed showers or tubs, these designer bathrooms will melt those pains away from your activities with body sprays, rain showers, or hand held wands to reach those hard to hit areas of your body. The cool Travertine floors make these small spa retreats available to you after a long day of skiing or a hot summer day. If those muscles are tired, relax in the downstairs Jacuzzi tub with recirculating heat feature if the outdoor Jacuzzi tub is full. This home can easily accommodate 2 families and has an open floor plan to dine in or entertain.

If dining Al Fresco is your pleasure, added in 2014 are outdoor gazebos with seating for 12 with complete outdoor stereo system and available for use is a propane gas grill for those grilling needs all year round. You may dine during the day or enjoy the Sierra air at night with multi colored LED lighting options for each gazebo and complete protection from any elements outside. Complete your outdoor/dining experience with music outside with our integrated Sonos Hi-Fi stereo system. If you'd rather dine in, our stainless steel range and fully stocked kitchen will allow you to prepare a feast for your guests and family.

For 2015 we have added extensive lighting around the property so that you may enjoy your own personal backyard while dining or relaxing at home. Enjoy nature with a personal 10,000 sq ft backyard with plenty of snow to build your own snowman and family in the winter or hear the soothing sounds of a babbling brook into a pond in the summer. If joining us in the summer, you will have your own personal slice of the Sierra complete with the night sky and up lights casting the great heights of our trees and lighting throughout the yard. Situated on the deck for your convenience is a 6 person jetted hot tub to relax after those long days on the slopes with a commercial BTU patio heater to ensure the transition from spa to house is not met with the elements. When not playing in the backyard or skiing at the numerous resorts nearby, you can stay connected to the outside with free wi-fi internet with blazing speeds of connectivity. If Blu-Ray is your preferred movie watching experience, then sit back and relax on the 10 person couch with the 47' LCD or get your game on with the Wii console for family entertainment or a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 with Kinect for those non-stop gaming adventures online or against each other. For those kids who want to watch something else, 2 other 46' LCD TV's are available if there is a disagreement for tv watching with an Apple TV on one and the other having LG’s Netcast to stream internet streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.

If you are looking to relax with music in the house, our Sonos hi-fi wireless digital music system can provide music in separate rooms or group together for one large music party. Movies, games, and regular tv watching are all in high definition with the critically acclaimed Sonos Playbar with earth shattering bass from the Sonos Sub. Stream services such as Spotify, Beats Music or Pandora or create your own internet radio station to play your favorite kind of music. Enjoy crisp highs and rumbling lows as each section of the house has an ability to soothe your music desires.

It may not be a hotel, but hotel linens and towels are there for use. Every bed has contemporary Hotel collection bedding and 400-600 thread count sheets to melt away into a deep sleep. 2 families can easily sleep on the 3 Queen beds, 1 California King bed, and 4 Twin beds. Catch up with restful sleep as the black-out shades turn rooms from day to night anytime of the day.

This home is conveniently located near Safeway and the Heavenly Village shops makes life easy for shopping. The casinos for your night time adventures await 5 minutes down the road. Alpine Meadows and Sierra at Tahoe are only 20 minutes away by car so skiing options are plentiful and Heavenly is practically in the backyard.

About The Owner

We are a family of five who enjoys South Lake Tahoe so much that we travel 3000 miles just to get there. We reside in Hawai'i full time but have strong ties to South Lake Tahoe and a love of the area. We recently purchased a lovely home and wouldn't mind sharing it with those who are respectful and family oriented like ourselves. We would feel comfortable with those who share our philosophy of family memories and a wonderful place to spend time together.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

We love this area because it is very near Heavenly and the casinos as well as near by to shopping and commerical areas. Safeway is our favorite grocery store and we love the casino nightlife and skiing nearby. This house was by a stroke of luck and we feel that we should preserve its luck and condition as best as we can moving forward.

What makes this house unique

Skiing is close by and casino night life is always attractive. Being close to Safeway makes family meals easy and you never worry about going hungry or being so isolated that civilization isn't nearby but away from it all where the nights are peaceful and quiet.

Great House for our Yearly Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It's tough finding a nice, affordable house in Lake Tahoe that can fit a group our size. This house is the perfect combination of size, location and price! The pictures of the house don't do it justice. The newly remodeled bathrooms are top notch, and the back deck and gazebo are perfect for warm summer evenings.

This is by far the cleanest and most well maintained property we have stayed at. The attention to detail is obvious as soon as you pull in to the driveway.

Michael was very responsive to our needs and we look forward to staying here for many more summers to come!

Owner's Response: Brian's family and guests were an absolute delight to have and what was more rewarding is that he has stayed at our home a long time ago and can appreciate all the upgrades in renovations we've taken upon ourselves to complete. The newest addition of our upstairs renovated bathrooms matches the luxury we have in our downstairs bathrooms. From the intelligent toilet with bidet options to the shower tower of relaxation while bathing make spa like qualities accessible when you stay at our home. Brian's family was very flexible with our renovations and we really appreciate how easy it was to work with him. I really hope he returns again to see the finished product and I welcome him anytime.

The house had everything we needed for our vacation. Plenty of kitchen appliances, games, warm bathroom floors (LOVE), and clean furniture. The backyard was perfect for our kiddos to play and the jacuzzi was well maintained. Michael was responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. We would definitely stay here again in the future!

Owner's Response: Annie's family was a joy to have in our home. She was very open with the communication (sorry about the dead squirrel in the backyard.... gotta love Tahoe and nature) and I really hope she decides to stay at our home again in the future. I'm super excited about our new renovations (especially the heated floors) to the upstairs bathrooms so maybe she'll be able to see the changes clearer than future guests who did not see the before bathrooms.

Awesome house! Great for our group of 10. Plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my son's 31st birthday. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the house. It has a large well-equipped kitchen - so happy to see the Keurig machine :) The downstairs heated bathroom floors were so nice! I wish my house had that! The location is nice with Safeway nearby, a good variety of restaurants and it's only a short drive to the casinos.

The gazebo out back is super cool! We didn't hang out there because it was cold at night but it would be ideal in the spring/summer/fall. The owner Michael was easy to work with, very flexible, available via cell when needed.

We'll definitely rent this house again.

Owner's Response: Kerry's family was so easy to work with for their special occasion. I was especially appreciative that her family was able to enjoy a UFC fight on PPV and was very diligent about reimbursing us for the extra charge and called ahead to make sure it was okay. We are very happy that she had a great time at our house and we do hope she returns soon.

Great home, ample room, modern technology, felt

  • 5 of 5

The home was great, the information posted about this home was spot on. The house is tastefully furnished, with a fabulous modern kitchen to a state of art entertainment system throughout the whole house. Michael has created a well written instruction manual on the house itself and if there are any other questions he has a great response time during my stay. This home had more features then I was looking for, we all were entertained. I will definitely come back

Owner's Response: Suliya's group was ideal for our home as they took full advantage of all our carefully planned amenities and I'm super happy that they enjoyed our home. We always try to find the right renters to match our home and I think we have the right process down. We constantly try to exceed our guest's expectations of a vacation rental home as we too are also users on VRBO and like to see how other owners take care of their guests. I hope we stay on their short list for future travel.

Wonderful stay for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the cabin. We had three families all with kiddos under 5. The backyard is big so we built snowmen and had a snowball fight. We were close to sledding runs and grocery stores. Michael was fantastic to deal with. Sent tons of info and answered any questions I had. We are already talking about our trip next year!!

Owner's Response: Josselyn's family was soooooo nice. It was really comforting to hear how wonderful of a family she has and how our home matched their group. I'm so happy that our house was able to exceed their expectations and that it would make me extremely happy if she returns for another family trip. I welcome her and any of her guests anytime.
