About Renee

Hello, my name is John. I have spent a great deal of my time in Lake Tahoe since I was very young and love everything the mountains and lakes have to offer. It is a blessing for my wife and I to own this large home and we enjoy sharing the experience with our family and friends.

Renee purchased this house in 2002

Why Renee chose South Lake Tahoe

I have vacationed in Tahoe since I was a toddler. In my opinion, South Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful place in the world, an ideal vacation spot offering year round activities. It is the only place in the world I know of that you can Snow Ski/Ride and Sunbath at the Beach on the same day.

We wanted a home that would accommodate a large family with friends (many bedrooms and bathrooms) and offer easy access to Heavenly Valley Mountains, Beaches, Stateline and more.

What makes this house unique

Recently remodeled with a new kitchen and lots of pine accents. Six total bedrooms, five on main floor with two master bedrooms, one with an adjacent room. Large multipurpose playroom downstairs with full bath. Hydronic heating system with thermostats in each room for individual comfort. Large storm windows with views of the forest and meadows with horses. A level property with plenty of parking and easy access to the main road.

Family's Winter Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideal & suited our family perfectly with sufficient beds, bedrooms, bathrooms & assorted toys to accommodate everyone. It was located convenient to private sledding areas and within convenient driving distance to skiing, shopping center with grocery store, miscellaneous shops, restaurants, & movie theater, and casinos at State Line. The property was clean & comfortably homey; it had all the amenities of home but in Tahoe. The owner was friendly, accommodating, and responsive to our questions. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. Thank you for sharing such a lovely home.

Very spacious and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay for a party of 12 or even more! Tons of room that it never felt crowded and has all the amenities already there. It's definitely not a luxury cabin, but you get what you pay for, and this is worth every penny. Location is perfect for Heavenly and the casinos. A nice corner lot next to Pioneer Trail, so on powder days it's very easy to get to a main plowed road.

Nice facility and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The house has pretty much what we need for a weekend escape and the website is quite detail. The Wifi is fast and the cable TV is a plus too. There are restaurants within 5 minutes also not far away from Heavenly Gondola.

The owner replied questions very quickly which were very helpful.

The only confusing part was about the hot water. In the beginning we thought the hot water circulator was on (downside) and there was no indication (at least we couldn't find it), also the direction of hot water heater is sort of reverse too. First night the water was just warm. We tried different direction next day to put the hot water circulator switch upside and finally we got hot waters.

I would recommend it to others.

Fun winter snow weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here last weekend total of two families. Everyone had a place to sleep and no lines or fights for a bathroom. The teen boys loved their own space in the game room. The owners were very accomadating and quick to message back to answer any questions I had. Would def stay here again, it's so close to the casinos, grocery store and restaurants. The house was stocked with enough blankets, and pillows as well as cooking essentials in case you didn't want to go out to eat! The little kids loved playing right outside the house and sliding down the small hills. Had a lot of fun!!! Thank you 😊

Great Home for Multiple Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The owners were great to work with. Very responsive and professional about all the details.

The location was awesome. Only minutes away from all the attractions so everyone had something to do.

We had multiple families in the house and it was big enough for each family to have their own room and not feel crowded at all. The home came with all the extras, just bring food and drinks and everything else was set up in the home.

Thanks John and Renee for sharing your home with our family! We hope to visit again soon.
