About Elizabeth Waller

Purchased because of lovely view, river and property. House was gutted and modernized with a garage and master bedroom addition. We, too, enjoy it and stay often but want others to appreciate all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer or just to sit on the deck and enjoy the view.

Elizabeth Waller purchased this house in 2004

Perfect for our family in terms of a good value for a Tahoe stay

  • 4 of 5

Owners were very responsive and reasonable when it comes to cleaning and the house is clean but dated but that was perfect for our family in receiving a great value in Tahoe. The surrounding areas are beautiful and the location is excellent.

Very nice visit for Christmas.

  • 4 of 5

The home was warm and cozy. We spent most of our time at my daughter's home, nut the house served the purpose. It is starting to show a little wear such as the garage doors being

termpermental, the lights flickering and the decks needing stain, but overall a very functional

A Lovely Slice of Tahoe

  • 4 of 5

We used to live in S. Lake Tahoe and rented this home for a visit to see friends over Thanksgiving. The house and the location brought back all the great memories of living in Tahoe.

The kitchen is small but better equipped than most primary residences. We cooked nearly all of our meals at "home," and had several dinner parties for up to 8 guests - even though our guests were locals they wanted to come to "our house."

The N. Upper Truckee River runs behind the house and it's a beautiful sight to behold from the up- and downstairs picture windows. The meadow that bounds the river provides a nice place for a short walk each morning with a cup of coffee.

The wi-if in the house was great, which is important since cell service isn't great in this home's Christmas Valley location and you'll need to activate your wi-if calling option.

Highly recommend this rental. We'll be back.

Nice and relaxing for the entire family

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The backyard led to an inviting brook through just enough brush to make it adventurous :). The house itself was well stocked and had ample space for all of us to relax.

Was a great choice

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, lives up to the pictures and better! The view from the back windows and deck is amazing, you'll think that you're out in the middle of no where. We had plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable, with 3 full bathrooms it made getting the 6 of us out the door easy. The drive to and from town went quickly. Definitely would recommend this home to friends.
