Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2012 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and kids/games room or the two big decks overlooking a forest service land.

Its an amazing house but even better is the location. Just one block from the Heavenly California Base Lodge. Walk to skiing, use the free ski bus to get to and from the casinos and shops, two minute drive or cheap taxi to just about everything.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a hot tub, a grill, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

Complimentary gift basket on arrival

Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

Walk to Heavenly California base

Take free ski bus to and from casinos and shops

Not over crowded, only two people to a room

Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

Enter into a large open plan kitchen and living area. Beautiful slate flooring, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and HDTV above the gas fireplace. Send the kids upstairs to the large flat screen with Playstation 3, the foozball table or the game area. Cook up dinner on the barbecue or soak in the hot tub from the decks overlooking forest service land.

There are two bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed and its own bathroom and huge deck and another bedroom with a queen bed. Down stairs is another bedroom with a separate door to the bathroom and direct access to the deck and hot tub. All your towels and linens are provided

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features alder cabinets and concrete counters. There are brand new fridgidaire appliances including a dishwasher and convection/microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

Relaxing is easy with a cozy fireplace and game and reading nook. The foozball table is great fun. We are wired for entertainment with 40' and 46' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is awesome. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly one block walk; Sierra at Tahoe 30min; Kirkwood 45min;Casinos 2min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 2min; Golf 2min. This is a quiet residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to forest service land. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and was immediately smitten. In fact I moved here permanently ten years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer. My wife Angela and I feel very lucky to be able to raise our two kids in this amazing outdoor playground.

Duggan Smith purchased this House in 2012

Why Duggan Smith chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell into the vacation rental business in 2010 after buying a house together with my mum, so Granny would have a place to stay when visiting our kids. Its been a great combination of my passions for real estate, construction and customer service. Location is everything for this house, immediate access to skiing, hiking and biking, incredibly quiet but just a couple of minutes to the center of the action. I gutted this house completely and rebuilt it with a new layout optimizing the space.

                                                            By far the BEST vacation rental we have rented to date!

                                                            Gena S.

                                                            We have been renting vacation homes for over 10 years now in the Tahoe area (primarily Kirkwood) for our large group of adults and children. This home is absolutely amazing, the price and the service/communication is beyond fantastic.

                                                            Upon arrival you are greeted by a nice welcome basket, very clear check-in/check-out instructions, rules and restrictions and how to guides for all the appliances. The home is clean and nicely updated and very spacious, yet cozy. The kitchen is fully equipped with EVERYTHING you could possibly need for your stay. Plenty of towels and no shortage of essentials like toilet paper, garbage bags and paper towels. Washer/Dryer and detergent, not that we used it for our clothes, but nice to know it is there if necessary. The full shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers in each bathroom was a super bonus since we forgot ours.

                                                            The hot tub was very relaxing after a day on the slopes and the large kitchen table was great for our family game of monopoly. Super close to heavenly so it was a breeze walking to the resort for all of us each day.

                                                            Kids and Adults alike enjoyed the foosball table, me personally would have preferred air hockey, but you can't get everything you wish for :-)

                                                            Notification of deposit refund was sent less than 24 hours after departure. I can't say enough good things about Duggan and the property. Rent it you will not be disappointed!

                                                            We will absolutely, be back to rent this amazing home again!

                                                            Thank you!

                                                            Amazing Home

                                                            Peter Y.

                                                            This home was great. Amazing location, very well kept, clean and loaded with extras.

                                                            Great family friendly place to stay

                                                            Pretty much had everything we needed and great location with walking distance to Heavenly California and a few restaurants. Hot tub and yard were great fun for the kids.

                                                            Great place!

                                                            This is a great place to stay, very clean, well furnished, and very close to Heavenly. It was just as advertised and the management is very helpful too. They even had a little welcome basket of goodies on the kitchen table!! I would definitely stay again!

                                                            Convenient and comfortable

                                                            This was a great place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and it had a great location. I would definitely recommend it and will be back again!

                                                            Gorgeous House and Perfect Location

                                                            Elaine C.

                                                            We have two families with 3 small kids. This cabin is beautiful and so roomy for everyone to relax comfortably . The location is super convenient. it is very closed to the California Lodge of Heavenly that made it so easy for us to drop off our kids to ski school daily. Even one day when the little one did not want to go to ski school/daycare, my friend and her little kid could walk from the cabin to ski school and pick up the older kid.

                                                            It has a play structure and hot tub in the backyard. Kids love soaking in the hot tub after a long day skiing.

                                                            We all love this place and would definitely come back again!!
