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.

  • 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.

Nice for a group of guys

  • 2 of 5

Property offered a lot of sleeping area and plenty of bathrooms to handle a larger group. Don't take a shower for more than 3 minutes though as the water goes cold fast and shower heads are set up for very short people. The kitchen was great. Had everything you needed to cook and eat with. In the woods it is not. It is on one of the main roads but convenient to everything because of this. Needs some work on the stairs into the house. Very crikety and not stable. Some steps about ready to go and the railing is wobbly so be carefull. Not accessible for anyone needing a wheelchair and not easy for anyone that has issues with stairs as you have to take the stairs, in the picture, to get into the house. Everything was very clean and homey and plenty of sitting and gathering area. But not really good for kids as there maybe TV's in all the rooms only the living rooms had actual TV programming, the others you could possibly put in a movie but that does not entertain them enough. I would recommend it to a group of guys or group that is there to be on the slopes most of the day.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for family members who were coming from out of state for my wedding. A total of 9 people and 2 dogs stayed, and it was great! The downstairs area is great for those with dogs, as they do not need to be brought through the house and can rather use the garage for entry. The home was generally clean - although the condition of the floors resulted in dirty socks. The home is well-equipped and beds were pretty comfortable I was told, but what should be mentioned is road noise. Despite a 30mph zone, the road is extremely busy--especially given the season--so road noise is a problem for light sleepers. The home worked great for what we needed, and we would definitely stay again! Thanks

Overall it was good

  • 4 of 5

Every thing was good except hall, it was little small as per our expectation.

I will recommend this house, and all required places are near by, so it was really nice.

Perfect house for large families/group.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of sleeping space, but you might want to take extra towels (which we did). We could not build a fire because there were no starter logs, John offered to pay for some if we purchased but local Safeway was out of them. That was the only disappointment of the weekend. Good location, close to everything and very quiet.

Cozy, spacious, and convenient home

  • 3 of 5

The rating should be closer to 3.5 stars. The owners are very responsive and even allowed one of our parties to check-in earlier. It was a nice home and more than accomodated our party of eight adults and one dog. The location, less than five minutes from Heavenly's California lodge, can't be beat. The dining and living areas are well furnished. The house was very cozy and we did not have to turn on the heat nor the fireplace stove. We used the propane BBQ grill, which was nice, and the kitchen was well equipped. WiFi and TV worked fine. As to some misses for the rental, there was a slight ceiling leak in the downstairs game room/bedroom, which we reported to the owners. The pipes were noisy for those sleeping in the game room and add-on in the master suite. The mattress in the master was very squeaky. Linen was sparse (no potholders, no full sets of towels, no extra bedsheets) and the bedding in several rooms was so musty, we had to wash them. Though the number of bathrooms was more than adequate, they all need updating. Overall, the rental was adequate for our need but did not exceed expectations.

Owner's Response: Plumber determined that water drip was from improper usage of shower curtain. Please make sure curtain liner is in tub. Please let us know If their are any issues related to linens etc. when you arrive so that we have a chance to improve your stay.
