About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Hot Tub, Pool Table, WiFi, Pet Friendly

Remodeled Fall 2016! New wood floors in all main floors, remodeled bathrooms + new bigger deck in backyard.

This great value cozy five bedroom home is packed with fun features including a pool table, a hot tub, fireplace and more.

After a day of Tahoe's great activities you will love soaking away the evening in the backyard hot tub. For those staying in, you've got your own pool room. With your own pool table, TV, table for cards and seating for four, the whole gang can join in a game of eight-ball.

With five bedrooms, room for twelve, and low rates, this house is a great value.

About the house. The house is a split level home. You enter at mid-level which is the level the kitchen and dining room are on. Down three stairs from the kitchen is the pool table room and off that room is the deck, BBQ and hot tub.

Down a half flight from the living room is one of the master bedrooms. This room has bunks in addition to a queen bed and has it's own full bath (shower, sink and toilet). Across from this room is the laundry room and garage.

Up a half-flight from the living room are the other four bedrooms. One of them is a master bedroom with it's own bathroom. The other three rooms up here share a bathroom which has double sinks to manage the crowds. Rooms are decorated in 'Tahoe Cabin' style - meaning wood furniture and wide plank walls, etc. The pool table has a cover so it can be converted into a table.

The house is central to everything. Walking distance to some local favorites including the best Thai restaurant (actually the best ethnic food in Tahoe) and Steamers, the always packed local sports bar which has live music, darts, and an backyard patio that's a great place to hang out.

In addition, you can walk right next door out into the Upper Truckee River and Meadow. Where trails meander through Aspens, over bridges, past swimming holes and through meadows. Great for hikes, bikes and walks.

About Danny McNamara

We (wife and kids) live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have had this home in the family for years. I'm a big snow boarder and have built almost 20 homes in the Tahoe area, but keep this one in the family, because we love it.

Danny McNamara purchased this house in 1980

Why Danny McNamara chose South Lake Tahoe

My father bought this property back in the 1980s. We loved coming up so much that we bought it from him when he moved too far away to continue to enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

1) Walking distance to great restaurants and bars

2) Walking distance to great trails and rivers.

3) Centrally located between the best of the lake (Camp Richardson, Emerald Bay) and the casinos/Heavenly.

Property is very accurate with descriptions and pictures- stay was great for 10 people

  • 4 of 5

I came in from Detroit with my family and in-law family to stay for the week. The property was very pleasant, easy check-in and the owner was easy to reach to answer my few questions prior to arrival.

The bedroom were all adequate and furnished with modern decorations and bedding. The place was clean and had everything you would need to enjoy a fantastic destination.

A few minor downfalls (and I do mean minor) that would have made the review go from a 4 star to a five star.

The cleaning crew missed a lot of dusting/ cobwebs on the interior and exterior. I do realize that the windows and doors are open and closed a bit, but we did kill a lot of bugs. This rental is in the woods so I can understand some of it. I do believe that the house should probably sprayed or "bombed" for spiders and bugs. Again, not everywhere but my wife and I did kill quite a few in the bedroom.

Lastly, the cooking situation was extremely difficult. All pans and pots were warped and unable to cook at all. Had to run to the local grocery store and spend $20.00 of our own dollars to be able to cook. A new set would definitely and upgrade. NO need to worry, we left the one we bought at the unit!

I would recommend staying at this unit, and would stay here again. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a large group, and the property fit us all. The backyard was our hang out spot, with enough room for our corn hole game we brought along. Would stay again.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

House was great! Large enough to accommodate our party of 6 adults and 2 children and with a bedroom to spare. Kitchen was very nice as were the bathrooms and all rooms were cozy and comfortable. The pool table cover doubling as a dinner table was very handy. Huge backyard covered with snow was very cool. House was located within walking distance to the main road And all the shops and restaurants. Owner was very quick to respond to any questions. We had a great time here and would definitely come back in the future.

This home is not meant for more than 1 family, this home not represented correctly

  • 1 of 5

We have been using HomeAway for several years and have always been completely Satisfied. However this is the first time we have felt that we were mislead. Unfortunately it seems as though the "renovations" are not complete. this home is not safe for young children, due to a garage full of tools, sheets of glass, sheets of dry wall, open boxes of screws and more. The house states several times to use the garage for snow season and that is not possible with conditions of the garage. Also the light in the garage does not work.

When asked how many cars the home accommodated, we were told via emailed 4 - the home clearly states there is a max of 3 aloud on property as that is all that will fit in the garage and driveway. There is no additional parking for our 4th car without getting towed.

Before booking the property we asked how many TV's were in the home and we were emailed there were 2. When we spoke on the phone you stated that the 2nd TV mist have been stolen. And that was a normal occurrence for your property. There was no effort to correct the issue.

This property listing states your property is in the Tahoe Keys. It is not! This property states it is great for families and can accommodate 12 people. There are beds for 12, however there was seating for 5 in a very small living room. This does not accommodate 12 people. The kitchen had a small breakfast table for 4 and 2 bar stools. - this does not accommodate 12 people. The pool table/dining room was not large enough to play pool properly. And the dining table cover sinks in the center. It would be impossible to use this as a dining table as advertised.

After 3-4 hours with heater running the house never got above 65 degrees, we have little children, and a 2 month old.

It is very disappointing you were not will to work with us when I called you earlier today to discuss these issues nor did you offer to send someone out to address the above issues.. As I stated your this home is not properly advertised and not safe for young children during your construction. We were offered 20% off our stay which is unfortunate. We have been coming to Lake Tahoe for many years and this was not the way we had hoped to start our vacation.

Owner's Response: This was very disappointing as we try very hard to provide a great guest experience. The last thing we want is to mislead guests! This is why we just remodeled the place! (new wood floors, new bathrooms, new kitchen appliances, new hot tub, etc.) This guest came during a HUGE storm and wanted to leave immediately and get a full refund. It's very difficult to re-rent vacation homes last minute (which is why everyone in Tahoe has strict cancellation policies), but we offered this guest an immediate 20% off and told them if they did leave, we would try to re-rent the house for the weekend and give them whatever we got. Which we did. We had the light replaced within 1 hour of her call. We had a new big screen TV installed in the living room the following week (so there are 2 TVs again). The furnace in the house is HUGE. The thermostat is in the living room. If you turn the living room fireplace on 24/7, it warms the living room so the thermostat might not turn on to heat the bedrooms. There is a sign on the thermostat that says this - it's best to use the fireplace when you are enjoying it, then turn it off at night. Outside the house, there is an old sign up that says 3 car parking, but the city just inspected our house and rated it for 4 cars (two end to end on the left side of the driveway, 1 on the right and 1 in the garage). They charge hire taxes this way. There were some shower doors in the garage (tempered glass and safe for a wet floor) as they were missing some roller parts that we had to order. They are now installed. The house is cozy. The pictures are VERY accurate. They show the living room, kitchen table and pool table exactly as they are. I have another house in Tahoe with a HUGE living rooms, etc. But it has less bedrooms and rents for twice as much.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $225
Damage Deposit $500

Rates are subject to change at any time as holidays are different each year. While we try to keep rates up to date for the next 6 months, rates further away then that are often wrong as Holiday dates change every year and Homeaway/VRBO doesn't have the ability to edit say XMAS rates for all future years. So instant book rates are subject to change after you book. NO SMOKING. NO PARTIES. NO PETS.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
