Fun summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over the 4th of July and the private beach was a great place to sit and watch the fireworks. The house is just a short walk from the beach. Very clean, well maintained and the owners are very helpful. I would definitely go back again.

The Perfect Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This house and the owner were so much more than I could have asked for. I just lost my father and my family and I wanted to get away for the holiday. Judi was so caring and made sure our stay and trip was as good as it could have been. Let me tell you this house was everything that is written and more! It is very homey, well maintained, clean and we will be staying here every time we visit Tahoe. The location is great. Safeway is right down the street and. Heavenly and the casinos are just a short drive. I would recommend this house for anyone with a family or just friends it has it all!

Thank you again Judi! I will be in contact soon to book with you again!

Hidden Gem/wonderful and caring owner!

  • 5 of 5

This took me a while to write, but it needs to be done.

1. the home itself is delightful, clean yet very "homey" feeling

2. owner is very accommodating and attentive

3. location is great, beach is a few blocks away. you will need to drive out of the neighborhood to go do things. but that makes it nice and quite.

4. overall- this property would be a place we return to and would recommend to family and friends.

Owners truly care

  • 5 of 5

We have rented twice from these owners and they have exceeded our expectations both times. The home is immaculate, well stocked and well appointed. They were quick to respond to any concern which for us were minor questions. Comfortable, well cared for home and furnishings. We will definitely check here first for our next visit to Tahoe!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect Tahoe vacation home!

You will feel like you are in a "home" for your vacation and not in a vacation rental.

Great quiet neighborhood, loved going for walks. Nice, friendly neighbors too!

Centrally located, within minutes to shops and casinos.

Beautiful private beach just a short walk away.

Home is very,very clean and has everything you will need.

Kitchen fully stocked-pots,pans,toaster,blender, crockpot, etc.

Gas bbq on deck.

Beds are comfortable, bathrooms stocked with towels.

Home is very spacious and has a great floor plan.

Love that master bedroom (very large master bedroom & bath!) is on upper level and other bedrooms are downstairs.

perfect for families with teenagers, or young adults.

Large laundry room with sink downstairs also.

We have rented several other homes in Tahoe over the years, some costing less and some more.

This is by far the nicest, and most like home.

I highly recommend this property.

Our family had a wonderful time here!

Judi was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to staying here again.

Thank you for everything!

Awesome! Has it all.

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all. The house is immaculate, beautiful and spacious. The lake/beach is only an easy 1/2 block at the most, walk from the house. There were 6 of us, 3 couples, and there was more than enough room for all of us. The location is perfect; a nice get away but close to shops. I highly recommend it.
