Lovely home in South Lake Tahoe (Tahoe Paradise) available for short and long term rental. 5 minutes from Heavenly Valley, 40 minutes to Squaw Valley and Kirkwood, in a peaceful residential neighborhood. 10 minute drive to the lake and beaches and 10 minutes to the casinos.

The house borders national forest land with 400 miles of hiking, biking and snowmobile tails… You could even stop out the back door and walk all the way to Los Angles through this forest without ever seeing a city!)

This spacious, peaceful, and well appointed 5,800 sq. ft. home is spread out over 3 floors and can accommodate up to 14.

The house has 5 bedrooms - one bedroom with a great office area as well, 5 full baths, 3 living rooms, lounge room, 2 fireplaces, large kitchen with dining table, granite counters, dishwasher, expansive decks and outdoor area, formal dining room, large sauna and large steam room (both with view to the back yard), Swedish shower, Hot Tub, laundry room with washer and dryer, and 2 car heated garage--all set on a 1 acre lot with a huge lawn, view of the forest--and a great tree house to boot.

This house offers privacy, green, green vistas, tons of natural light, and the comforts of a spa in house. Floors are a mix of hardwood and carpet, and all have radiant/floor heat. The house comes with Wi-Fi and cable TV on any of the 5 40” flat screen TVs. It is a great place to vacation, to relax, and simply to be.

**While most houses in Tahoe don't have them, here the bedrooms have high quality black-out roller curtains, for those who like to sleep in!

Beds in Bedrooms are as follows:

Bedroom #1= 1 King & 1 Queen

Bedroom #2= 1 Double

Bedroom #3= 1 Queen with a twin bunk above

Bedroom #4= 1 Queen & 1 Twin

Bedroom #5= 1 Queen

There is a reason they call this area "Tahoe Paradise". (This house, with its amenities and location, just may be it!)

*To see virtual tours, please look for link by scrolling down to the 'WEB LINKS' section, which is just after MANAGER INFO at the bottom.

**If you are looking for Medium or Long term rates, please inquire.

*This home has a County Vacation Rental Permit --#1972


* We generally have a 3 night minimum, but if needed will approve 2 night rentals on a case to case basis with an additional "short-stay" surcharge. Also certain Holiday weekends may have minimums.

*We love pets, but I am sorry to say that after a couple of bad experiences we can no longer accept them as guests.

*Check-in is at 4pm, and check-out is at noon--but let us know your ideal time and we'll accommodate it if we can.

-A few of the 'Dont's' and 'No's': No smoking. And no parties or events in this rental, as the house is in a residential neighborhood where people really value the quiet of the woods and their homes. But this rule is a win-win: Good for the peace of our neighbors and good for renters too!


The county, the sherifs department and the neighbors in Tahoe are all vigilant regarding three things:


Renters must respect the laws regarding these issues, or citations will be issued directly to them, and also (potentially) to the property owner. Please know and respect the following:

1. PARKING: No street parking is allowed during snow removal conditions or between Nov. 1 and May 1. When street parking is allowed, it is only allowed directly in front of the curb closet to the house. The house has a garage that can house 2 cars and space for 4 medium size cars in the drive way. Parking is limited to 5 cars in total.

2. DISPOSAL OF GARBAGE: All garbage must be properly disposed of in the property's locked 'bear boxs' and no food or food items are to be left in the yard, on decks, or in vehicles. It's really dangerous for the people and bad for the bears!

3. NOISE: Renters must keep noise to a level that does not intrude on the peace of neighbors. Or as the county likes to say,renters 'must not create unreasonable noise or disturbances, engage in disorderly conduct, or violate provisions of, the El Dorado County Code or any State law pertaining to noise or disorderly conduct.' (Please help all enjoy this special place!)

--Cost to repair any damage to the house (repairs or cleaning) caused by any pets (or people) brought to or staying in the house are (of course) the responsibility of the renter.

***Please note:

--A signed rental contract is required for all rentals, as is a security deposit.

Why Kate Jones chose South Lake Tahoe

This house was purchased after looking at many (many!) others. Our family (5 kids included!) lived here for years. It was our dream house, and we have always treated it that way. We love having the full expanse of woods behind the house, having a great tree house that the kids (and even the adults!) often enjoy, the huge yard with the privacy the fencing gives. A large sauna and stream room to use after skiing. And most of all--being so close to all the outdoor activities we so enjoy here. We no longer live here full time, but still enjoy the house when we can. We hope those who stay here will enjoy and value it as we do!

What makes this House unique

Perfectly located in a peaceful area of Tahoe, but also just minutes from Heavenly Valley, the lake, and also the Casinos. This unique property also Boarders National Forest land with 400 miles of trails. With a wonderful home spa (including steam room, Sauna and Hot Tub) and amazing views of the forest, you just may find you don't want to leave the house at all!

                                                              Beautiful, spacious home with attentive hosts

                                                              The house is perfect for large groups. It is very spacious and has several, comfortable sitting areas with all the amenities - gas fireplaces, cozy couches, beautiful views of snow-covered trees outside, TVs, Sonos. The steam room is huge (it probably could fit 10) and the spa-sized sauna works perfectly. All of the bathrooms are huge as well, giving this place a truly luxurious feel. We arrived during a snow storm and the grounds manager, Cesar, was instrumental in keeping us safe and comfortable despite having some car trouble due to the inclement weather. We are so appreciative of his responsiveness at all times. Kate, the owner, is also very responsive via HomeAway and has a clear attention to the details which made our stay that much more enjoyable. I would definitely stay here again.

                                                              Pictures didn't show how pretty the property is.

                                                              Nice dish washer. Didn't even notice it was running. Good to have sono sound system. Fully equipped with all the kitchenware. Didn't list the blender on their page, but they do have it. Some chairs need to re upholstery, but doesn't bother me at all. Easy access to few different ski resorts. Love the steam and sauna room. Only the lower floor room have access to it. Will go back for sure.

                                                              Awesome Home!

                                                              We stayed for a 3 day weekend at this home. We had kids and grand kids - 9 in total. More than enough room. Very clean and nice. Would love to stay again - winter or summer. Kate was very responsive both before we arrived and when we had a question.

                                                              Beautiful Property!

                                                              The house was exactly as advertised, on a beautiful piece of property, with plenty of room for family and friends. The owner was also very flexible on check in and check out. Great home!

                                                              Amazing house, great hosts!

                                                              Edward G.

                                                              The house is spacious yet very cozy. This house was clearly built for the enjoyment of the owners as everything is top quality. Really nice choice!

                                                              Happy New Year

                                                              John H.Ohio

                                                              As the title reflects we stayed 5 days over the New Year holidays. Very busy time in Tahoe, took a while to get into town because of the backup on the highway.

                                                              But it was worth the wait once we arrived at the house. We have lived in Japan for a few years so were used to removing our shoes when we enter a home. What surprised us was the floor was heated, quite a treat I must say.

                                                              Other features of the house we really enjoyed were the two fireplaces on the first floor, plenty of seating and TV'S.

                                                              The kitchen became a gathering place for all, games were played at the large table, and the cooking was not a chore but a pleasure because of space available.

                                                              We had nine adults in our group, if you consider adult grand children adults. All had bedrooms that were spacious and comfortable.

                                                              We didn't get a chance to use the Sauna or Steamroom, seems like there was never enough time to get everything in a days time.

                                                              We left early at 7am due to the snow coming in, and yes it did! If you chose a winter stay pay close attention to the weather man, we drove through 5 inches of snow and we were lucky heading back to Oakland. I believe the highway became Impassable later in the week. Highly recommend four wheel drive vehicles if your staying in the winter.

                                                              Overall the house provided us with a comfortable New Years vacation, Ceasar checked in on use to make sure all was ok, minor issues that were taken care of. A very nice home that we enjoyed during our stay.
