About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Please check our calendar on this site for availability. You must be 30 years or older to rent the property.

Bring your family and friends to this spacious home. Each level of the house has beautiful waterway and mountain views. Enjoy the private dock for your boat, water toys, and fishing. Whether you go kayaking on the beautiful canals of the Keys or just have a relaxing dinner on the deck you will enjoy this unforgettable vacation.

The home features a fully equipped kitchen, dining room with seating for twelve, and great room with a fireplace and 62'' plasma TV. Picture windows and doors from the great room lead to a large deck with a barbecue and seating for six. The den also has a fireplace and a 60'' plasma TV with french doors that lead to the lower deck with a private hot tub. The house is located at the end of a quiet street. We have parking for two cars in driveway and room for one car in the garage.

This home has two large decks to watch the boats go by all day long. We have a dock that can easily moor two boats and still leave room to fish. The waterway is wide enough that you do not feel closed in. We have a nice sized fenced yard with grass and plenty of shade. The house is at the end of the street and this cuts down on noise greatly. At night you can sit on the deck and star gaze. My favorite thing is early in the morning I get my coffee and watch the geese fly in and land on the water. Then I take the boat out and watch the hot air balloons flying over the lake. When I return the gang is up and ready to hit the water. That is a perfect start to a summer day at our lake house.

The local Marina is offering rental boats and personal watercraft, charter fishing, hot air ballooning over the lake, and Emerald Bay water excursions.

About Brian Ambrose

Our family has vacationed in South Lake Tahoe for over 35 years. We have so many fond memories in any season and there are so many recreational activities in and around this town. That alone makes each visit exciting and fresh.

Brian Ambrose purchased this house in 2009

Why Brian Ambrose chose Tahoe Keys

We decided Tahoe was a memory maker and the time was right to buy a home for our extended family. The size and layout of this house and its lot placement is great. We decided right then it was perfect over all the other homes we had toured and stayed in over the years. It has a warm mountain feel and plenty of space for our family and guests. With a fun and interesting floor plan that is nothing like our home in Los Angeles. We wanted a home that was unique and different with plenty of light and open beam wood work. With views of the mountains, we ended up getting a view of the Heavenly Valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brian, I think you and your wife have done a wonderful job of making everyone who rents your home feel welcome and have all the comforts of a fine resort at our finger tips.

All the "toys" were wonderful. We are ready to go out and buy kayaks! Even when it was a little scary out on the lake on a windy day, we had great fun. The kitchen was complete with everything we needed. We brought paper plates to cut down on dirty dishes, but did have two wonderful "formal" dinners using the pretty dishes you have. It was just a wonderful week and enjoyed by all.

Great Tahoe Property for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property for President's Day Weekend with 10 people (5 couples). Excellent living room space with cozy couch and fireplace (firewood provided!), and huge dining area that fit all 10. The owner was very well organized, and provided excellent communication before and during the stay. Kitchen is fully-stocked with pots, pans, and cookware. The house had great sleeping quarters for 5 couples -- (1 master bedroom upstairs, 2 bedrooms with queen beds downstairs, and another bedroom with a queen, bunk bed and twin bed -- there is also a downstairs den that could be used as a sleeping area too, but the den does not have a pull-out couch.) The place was perfect for a relaxing weekend with friends.

The property is lovely, expansive, well-maintained, with plenty of natural daylight. It is located on the marina. The space is very comfortable. My friends and I stayed there for a birthday celebration and had a brilliant time. Brian, the owner, is responsive and excellent to work with!

MLK Weekend in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. It was the perfect size for our group of nine. The house looks exactly as it does in the pictures, you won't be disappointed. We could have stayed for weeks. The only thing I'd note is that we had hoped to use some of the water devices since it ended up being a fairly warm weekend in Tahoe. Unfortunately, the aquacycles and kayaks are off-limits for the winter (safety concerns). Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time and this did not detract from our enjoyment of the property and our weekend.
