Nautical-style decor graces the walls throughout each room, while heated floors keep you nice and toasty no matter where you are. Thanks to the enormous custom windows and the angle of the building, the perfect amount of sunlight fills the entire interior, reflecting the warmth wherever you sit.

All 3 living areas are ideal for relaxing at any time of the day and the fully equipped kitchen offers all the cooking appliances needed to aid you in preparing scrumptious home-cooked meals for any occasion. You'll feel right at home with the property's abundance of provided amenities, including central heating, complimentary toiletries, and in-unit laundry machines.

When it's sunny outside, make your way outside to the private furnished deck to soak up some rays and gaze at the still waters alongside the property. You'll love capping off your vacation days by sipping a cold beer with your companions as you relish the crisp mountain air and gaze out at the panoramic mountain views. When hunger arises, utilize the gas grill for a cookout amongst a wonderful evening backdrop. End your days on a high note by soaking in the private hot tub, from which you can enjoy the breathtaking mountain views.

When you're ready to call it a night, retreat to any of the 4 well-decorated bedrooms, each with their own uniquely nautical name. One of these rooms, the 'U.S. Coast Guard Quarters' is actually a separate 500-square-foot apartment - accessible through the front entryway - with its own private deck, kitchenette, dining area and sitting room with desk. These one-of-a-kind characteristics make it the perfect kid's quarters or master suite.

Guestbook comments from the manager


"We enjoyed staying in your home over the NEW YEAR'S HOLIDAYS. We were happy to have found such a lovely home for our entire group to stay while we enjoyed the skiing, snow-mobiling and other winter attractions that S. Lake Tahoe has to offer.

Maybe we will be able to enjoy your home in the summer, either as a group or by ourselves.

Top Tahoe quality

  • 5 of 5

The house is huge, very clean, well maintained and stocked to address your every possible need. Location is prime - short easy access to all local ski resorts. The owners were very courteous, calling us on arrival day to check if everything was ok, and responding very quickly when there was a small issue with hot tub. We enjoyed our skiing trip and I would definitely rent this property again!

Beautiful home with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Great, clean home with lots of space for us, our adult son, and his friends. Great backyard on lagoon with grill that allowed lovely evening cookouts. Kitchen was well-stocked. It was convenient to the Marina where we rented boats. Also, an easy drive for breakfast at Heidi's.

Wonderful experience. Warm and very friendly home. Truly a 5 STAR rating

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the beautiful home for our Thanksgiving get away. We were 8 adults and 2 young children. Plenty of room for all of us. Separate activity rooms allowing for different activities for kids and adults. The house is well stocked, in fact, more than we expected. Sleeping accommodation are well planned out.

Bernice was so helpful the weeks before we arrived. She was prompt to answer our emails and phone calls. She was very accommodating to our needs allowing us to arrive an hour or 2 earlier than was expected. We were so impressed with the home and the area, we plan to come back again.

The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances, ample dishes and silverware for two meals without having to run the dishwasher.

The temperature dropped down to zero one morning but the house stayed nice and cozy and warm. Bernice even arranged for a snow storm for the 5 days we were there! This made the grand kids ever so happy, and the adults even indulged making a snow man and playing in the snow like kids. We could not get the grand kids to come in at night!

The views from all the windows were amazing. It was fun watching the ducks skate on the frozen lagoon.

We saw a coyote each morning run through the back yard, he was more afraid of us than we were of him. The local bald eagle paid us several visits flying over the lagoon.

The home has plenty of games and activities for the kids to play, including their favorite -LEGOS.

Bernice and Neil, thank you for making this available to us. I would recommend this home to anyone without any reservation.

Great family vacation home for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Bernice and Neil,

My wife and I, our two kids and their spouses, and our 5 grand kids (9, 7, 6, 5 and 3) had a great time during our week at 2120 Venice Drive. We were able to spread the 5 grand kids out and most of the time they - and we - got enough sleep. Everyone had enough space.

Our oldest grand daughter was on the top bunk and loved the hideaway above it. She did a lot of reading up there. The 2 boy cousins were both in either a tent in the backyard or in the room with the pullout bed, but they used sleeping bags in both places. The huge yard was great for the kids, and they played with our jai alai baskets and took some batting practice. Our 2 youngest grand daughters both set records for the number of consecutive forward rolls without bumping into anything.

We floated in the lagoon several times, with all grand kids aboard at one time or another with an adult. Got good photos of ducks following us around catching pieces of bread, and even some 3" to 4" fish coming near the surface. We didn't see the beaver, but we saw a couple of bunnies running around in the backyard and ending up under the deck.

The kitchen was very well stocked with supplies and pots, pans, cookie sheets, bowls, dishes, etc. Bedrooms and bathrooms had all we needed. Thanks again for all the emails and answers to our questions pre- and post-contract signing. You were always quick to reply with answers and more information.

And we found a great pasta place just north of Tahoe Keys Blvd on Lake Tahoe Blvd. Actually, if you come from Venice Drive, turn left off of Tahoe Keys onto James Ave before you get to Lake Tahoe Blvd. Then turn right into the small strip mall driveway and park at the Liquor Store. His place is to the right as you enter the Liquor Store. Look him up on Yelp.

Fabulous House & Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 10 days with our two adult children, their spouses and three grandchildren (ages 6,4,3). This house was perfectly set up for our three families providing lots of areas to be together and sleeping/bathroom space for each family; apartment within the house was perfect for one family. Loved spending time in the backyard overlooking the water (watching ducks, geese and beavers) and playing games - lots of room to run around and didn't feel cramped by neighbors. Kitchen was very well stocked and even provided spices we needed a "pinch" of so we didn't have to buy everything imaginable. Grandchildren each caught their very first fish ever at Sawmill Pond - great place for children to fish and actually catch something. Best meal out: lunch at Base Camp Pizza at The Village at Stateline. Absolutely fabulous pizzas and salads - a definite "don't miss" place while you are here. So much to do and see in the Tahoe area and this house was perfect for us. Small problem with the hot tub while we were there. Contacted owners (even though they were out of the Country) and they had service out to us within 24 hours. Absolutely wonderful owners to deal with; very attentive and responsive. If you're looking to visit the Lake Tahoe area, this house will have everything you want. We've rented 12+ homes in locations throughout the US and would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful property!
