About John & 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.
John & Renee purchased this House in 2002
Why John & 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, Golf, Stateline Clubs 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 room 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.
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.
President's Weekend Getaway
This property is in a great location! It was clean and well kept. The kitchen has everything you need. We brought our own cookware thinking we would need it, we didn't. Plenty of cups, plates, and utensils. Lot's of room for everyone. Plenty of towels. No problems with hot water. Communication from the owners were outstanding. The only thing I can request: please remove the rocking chair from the bedroom with the two twin beds. It was a bit creepy (we ended up putting it inside the walk- in closet during our stay). Overall, a nice place to stay for large groups in the center of everything. Thanks!
Property was very accommodating to our family needs. Everything was immaculate. I would love to come back sometime in the future. Than you John & Renee
The house was nice. Everything is complete & were close to everything; Safeway, ski rentals, stores, casinos and ski resorts. There was something for everybody. Although we had the problem for heater in 1 room the owner was willing to payback if we bought a portable heater. The kids were able to play the snow within the area as well. The house has its own backyard where they can play. It is a good house & good location.
The room heater issue has been addressed. We have added two portable electric heaters located in the closet for guest use.
Nice for a large group. Corner of Pioneer Trail
A clean kitchen stocked with the basics. Ready to sleep and shower 10. Corner of Pioneer Trail so easy access but noisy road with little Tahoe feel. Clean enough but not a spotless.
Lots of rooms for at least four families
This house could be a great gathering place for a group of friends or families. Located on the corner of Pioneer Trail and Ralph Dr., you see a horse barn directly across the street and sometimes horses and coyotes eyeing each other warily. The yard is steep, so not suitable for gatherings or a play area for the kids. Up the street are walking trails which could allow for great sledding opportunities with enough snow or a nice walk, regardless. Each bedroom comes with it's own thermostat so one can choose how warm they need their sleeping space. This unusual heating system has its drawbacks, though, as our bedroom sat overtop where it is housed and it emitted mechanical clanging noises. Our biggest disappointment was the overall cleanliness of the house. As vrbo owners, we know how challenging it is to turn over the house in one afternoon in back- to- back guest occupation. And the rental was at the end of the busy holiday season (1/1-1/4), so the build up of dust and dirt on closet tracks, rugs and wall baseboard is to be expected. Still, it takes away from the overall experience and is worth avoiding, especially as the cleaning fee is $285 and should ensure grime is addressed. Again, the room we were in especially needed airing out to freshen up from prior tenants. The most inconvenient aspect, though, was the absence of any hand towels or washcloths (there were two of those) for the party. We actually had to go and borrow from our rental property, that had been rented for the season, to provide for the group. We know these problems can be addressed, and hope they will be for future guests.
Located in the Bijou community, this home offers an IDEAL LOCATION for those seeking quick access to the slopes of Heavenly Valley, Power line Trail Hiking, Mountain biking, Snowshoeing and Cross country skiing. Local Parks, the Beaches of South Lake Tahoe and the excitement and nightlife at Stateline Casinos
