Montgomery Estates House Rental Photos and Description

PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER VRBO LISTINGS: 383106 AND 440131

Fully remodelled late 2013, everything is brand new.

Spacious home in a quiet, woodsy residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. Enjoy the massive open living area on the top floor and the many big bedrooms downstairs.

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 grill, a hot tub, 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

Not over crowded, only two people to a room

Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

No keys to lose with our digital lock

There is an open lounge room and dining area. The gas fireplace is cozy and inviting. On the other side of the kitchen is the living area with a big sectional couch and 55' HDTV with bluray home theater and playstation game console. Or take your relaxing outside on to the deck overlooking massive pine trees and mountains

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features concrete counters and a bay window looking out to the woods and mountains. All the appliances are new, a big fridge, gas range, dishwasher and 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.

All the bedrooms are downstairs and they are all BIG. There is a master with a california king bed, 40' TV and its own bathroom and deck. There is another room with a california king and two rooms with queen beds, plus a full bath. All your towels and linens are provided.

The hot tub is on a ground level deck with views into the trees. We have a foos ball table for added fun.

Location is key and this is a great one. Central in town, but tucked up a hill in the woods, you are close to everything. Heavenly 8min; Sierra at Tahoe 25min; Kirkwood 45min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 10min; Shopping 10min; Golf 5min. This is a quiet residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home is surrounded by 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 2013

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. We loved this house for its amazing location with immediate access to endless forrest, great views, the huge living area and massive bedrooms

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very spacious, comfy beds and couches. The kitchen was wonderful and fully equipped. The area was really nice; 10 minute drive to downtown. We had a couple of questions of where some things we at & Mr. Smith was very prompt to answer our questions. I will definitely try and stay here again if need be. Thank you so much.

A great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding at Heavenly Valley to attend and needed a place for a larger group to stay. This place fit the bill. We had 3 couples and 3 single ladies and we had plenty of room. With three bathrooms, it made it easy to get ready for the wedding (especially with 6 women). We also enjoyed the beautiful hikes and golfing that the area has to offer. We had most of our meals at the house and had plenty of space to cook and prepare them. Would recommend to anyone that needs space enough for multiple couples or families. We very much enjoyed our stay.

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the house. The house is secluded in a very beautiful quiet neighborhood. The house is very spacious and everything we wanted or needed was provided to us. We loved sitting outside on the deck enjoying our view of the woods. The neighbors are very friendly. Overall, a great mini vacation getaway...we loved it and are looking forward to going again!

Nice Home & Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The home is nice, and is in a great location! It's located in a nice quiet woodsy neighborhood just off of the main highway, but is only minutes away from all of the activities we did. It only took 10 minutes for us to drive to the Echo Lake trailhead for a hike to Lake Aloha, 5 min. drive to town and to the El Dorado Beach, and was a $13 cab ride to the casinos. The house itself is open and spacious with a nice master bedroom - there was plenty of space for our party which was 8 adults, and the house is stocked with everything we needed. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there were a couple of things not working for us when we were there, but it didn't inhibit our fun, and the owner is fixing the issues. Communication with the owner is very good. Overall, I would recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review and thanks for brining the maintenance issues to our attention. We do rely on our guests to inform us when there is a problem. Some things are just hard to know unless you are actually living in the house. We will always remedy anything bought to our attention right away (or immediately after your stay if youd rather not be disturbed).

Absolutely a GREAT choice!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well worth the money! Kitchen is well equipped, spacious and offers a generous supply of staples. The beds were all very comfortable as were the living/family room furnishings. We had a group

of three families amounting to 11 people and everyone was HAPPY and COMFY! The owner was a pleasure to work with! Thank you for a wonderful stay- we look forward to the next one!

Great house for a large family

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as described and displayed in pictures. We had 5 adults and 3 kids staying there and everyone was super comfortable, plenty of space, bedrooms, nice beds, seating areas etc...

It was a bonus that the property has a slight slope so the kids (and adults) could build a sled run right in the front yard. Close to town and Heavenly ski resort. The only problem we encountered was due to high winds and a storm the jacuzzi cover kept blowing open which we didn't realize until we wanted to use it that night. 92 degrees isn't quite good enough! All other times using it were great. If you are there in a storm check the cover1 First world problems ;-)
