About Kurt Papenhause

We are native to the San Francisco Bay Area. We love to travel and especially love Tahoe and Maui. We rent through VBRO all the time when we travel and thank you for looking at our property. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Kurt Papenhause purchased this house in 2008

Why Kurt Papenhause chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

This house has been in our family for years and we love visiting as often as we can. We have taken care to outfit this house as a home, not a rental property. We think you will enjoy the special touches we have placed in the house from the light fixtures to the furnishings. This is a very relaxing location.

What makes this house unique

The views of Mt. Tallac and the lagoon are breath taking. Enjoy watching wildlife from geese to coyote and nutria (looks like a beaver swimming in the lagoon).

Wonderful, peaceful, cozy house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, even better than how it was described. The living room was spacious with a nice new large tv. The bedrooms and kitchen/dining room were also very spacious. There was a cute little deck and backyard that went out to the water and the view behind it, which you could see from the living room, was breathtaking - water and snow-capped mountains! The house perfectly fit us: 4 adults and 3 children. My little nephews keeps commenting on how cozy the house was! It was just that, very peaceful, like a retreat house. The Tahoe Keys neighborhood is also very peaceful and cute - lots of space to run and walk. The location was also amazing- right by the downtown of South Lake Tahoe and very close to all the ski resorts. The owner of the house, Kurt, was very responsive, nice and accommodating too. The only downside was the indoor pool and hot tubs for Tahoe keys were broken. We found out you can pay to go swimming at the Monteblue hotel and casino 10 minutes away during the week. The South Lake Tahoe Rec Plex also has family swim on Saturdays. Overall, a wonderful experience I would highly recommend!!

70th birthday weekend

  • 4 of 5

We spent a 3 day weekend (2/12-2/15). in the home with our daughters. It was very comfortable for 6 people. The owners were helpful with any of our questions that we had before the weekend, and even gave us their cell phone number to use if we needed to get ahold of them while there. There is a small patio and dock, but couldn't use of course because of the snow. Square footage is on small size, but adequate. We were out every day and only there for breakfast and dinner. Great weekend with family!

This place is great! Kurt was very easy to contact and everything was laid out for us when we arrived. Minutes away from Heavenly and Casinos. Great time for all of us and our puppy! Thank Kurt!

Wonderful home in Tahoe Keys!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is warm and inviting. It is equipped and stocked with anything you might need or want on your vacation. We had a wonderful time on our 3 day stay. It is like a vacation in your own vacation home. The location is perfect. It is close to skiing and the casinos. we were very comfortable staying in the downstairs bedroom while the grandkids were upstairs in their rooms. Our lab Molly came with us and was comfortable next to the fire on her oversized doggy pillow.

I would definitely stay here again when we come to Tahoe.

Tahoe Keys Marina

Tahoe Keys Resort offers two pools, one indoor, hot tubs, tennis courts, sandy beaches, beautiful views and lots of outdoor activities.

Tahoe is VERY strict with the boats they let in and all the ramps will check to be sure a boat has gone through inspection for possible invasive species. They clip a special wire to your boat and trailer.

Do everything you can to purge their engine and engine area of any residual water. Even wipe the area out if they can. And before they hit the inspection site, check again, as water comes out of unknown places when you go up the hill.

We use the Meyers inspection site. It takes about 20-30 minutes total. But if its a busy weekend or early summer season, there can be a line, so you will want to plan for that. We also recommend they fill up their boat before dropping in. We put it at the marina ramp in the Keys by the Fresh Ketch.
