Lake Tahoe South Shore House Rental Photos and Description

Contemporary 4BR/3BA Tahoe Keys home, VIEWS, Dock, Snowshoes, Bikes, Kayaks, SUP

Tahoe Waterfront Rental has spectacular views of the waterway and Mt. Tallac from the expansive great room windows; see Heavenly Ski Area from the upstairs master suite. Large fenced yard opens to new Private Boat Dock with direct Lake Tahoe access. Luxurious outdoor 8-person hot tub with views of the waterway and mountains, protected from snow by large upstairs deck. High Speed Broadband Internet, WiFi. Great room has 55'' flatscreen 3D-HDTV with Internet and Premium Sports tier, home theatre surround sound, 3D BluRay DVD player. 46'' flatscreen HDTV and keyboard downstairs. Toys include Stand-up Paddleboard (SUP), kayaks, bikes, snowshoes... Bright entertainer's kitchen and dining room have hardwood floors, with seating and VIEWS for 14. Watch the sunset and boats from the balcony or over-water deck. 4-burner Turbo natural gas BBQ. We use electronic door locks so there are NO KEYS to sorry about. Close to World-class skiing: Heavenly Ski Area (10 minutes), Sierra-at-Tahoe (20 minutes), Kirkwood (40 minutes). Access to Tahoe Keys HOA Tennis courts, pools, playground and beach available to guests for a small fee.

TAHOE'S AWESOME MAJESTY: Seasonal flower beds and expansive lawn greet you when you arrive at this meticulously maintained home. Entering the front door you are met with light flowing through a beautiful glass-block wall. A gentle set of stairs leads up to the great room, boasting soaring ceilings and light shining in through the skylights and massive view windows. You will be drawn to the generous deck overlooking the waterway, with a backdrop of majestic mountain peaks. Mt. Tallac, with its trademark cross of snow will pull your vision as you take in the grandeur of the glacier-made Tahoe basin.

You may decide to sit awhile in the golden teak chairs as you breathe in the freshness of the mountain air: or you may not be able to resist exploring the rest of the property. Re-entering the great room you will notice the huge round solid maple dining table with seating for 8, making note of the beautiful lazy-susan, as you imagine the family memories to be made around this table.

THE GREAT ROOM: The grand kitchen, with granite countertops and additional island seating for six more, will delight the serious chef in you. The Thermador gas range, walk-in pantry, and generously outfitted cupboards allow you to entertain in high style.

Turning to the professionally decorated living room, sporting black leather furniture with ample seating for all, imagine sitting by the blazing gas-log fireplace, or watching a movie in sharp 3D with theatre-quality surround sound on the 55'' flatscreen HDTV. Plug in your iPod (or create your favorite station on Pandora) for music throughout the house.

Explore the master suite, decorated in unique ironwork and numerous built-in cabinets. Luxuriate in the king-size pillow top bed with high-quality linens, or relax in the softly lit spa-like bathroom. You will find a deep jetted-tub, his and hers sinks and showers , and a special winter treat, the steam shower. Check out the view of Heavenly from the MBR windows or private deck.

HAVE SOME FUN: Downstairs, gather around the 46'' HDTV for TV or a movie. You'll also find a keyboard for making music and a wet bar with a small refrigerator.

There are 3 elegant guest rooms downstairs; two with pillow-top queen beds and views across the water. The 4th bedroom has 2 twins beds. All bedrooms are spacious, with large mirrored closets. Additional sleeping arrangements consist of a Q sofa bed in the upstairs living room, and a comfortable Q futon in the den.

Take a peek in the garage to find built-in ski and boot racks, snow toys, 3 sets of snowshoes, 2 kayaks, 4 Mongoose mountain bikes, and our newest addition, a ten-foot Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP). All to be used at your own risk!

Grab one of the fishing rods and try your luck on the dock or one of the local streams. Choose a game of croquet, bocce, volleyball or badminton on the level back lawn. Enjoy a jet massage in the hot tub or hang the hammock for a siesta.

About Janie

Our Philosophy on Renting Directly from Owner:

We have rented lovely vacation homes and condos directly from owners for many years. The original idea was to eliminate the mark-up of a middle man or property manager. This concept still works! Because you work directly with us, the owners; unlike many other properties which are actually managed by a rental company for a hefty commission; we are able to offer a discounted rate for a top-notch property!

We have owned and enjoyed our second home in Tahoe for 17 years. Our children, family and friends have built lasting memories there as you will see when you read our journal/guest book. We hope that you will continue that tradition.

We are excited by the prospect of sharing our home with you. We will be more than happy to share local area information and knowledge with you to enhance your time at Lake Tahoe. We welcome your questions, ideas and suggestions.

Jane and Roger

Janie purchased this house in 1997

Why Janie chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

The access to Lake Tahoe from the backyard dock, and the view across the wide expanse of waterway to Mt. Tallac are unparalleled.

What makes this house unique

This is THE CLEANEST house, with the most WELL-MAINTAINED yard in Tahoe Keys!

Also renters may use Tahoe Keys HOA amenities, tennis courts, pools, playground, beach, sand volleyball, basketball for a small fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent communication with Janie from the moment I booked, continuing on after my stay. The photos do not do the house justice! Home is very clean, well stocked with kitchen and laundry items, with clear instructions on how to operate equipment (SUP, hot tub, tv, etc.). It was perfect for three families (6 adults and 6 kids between the ages of 1.5 and 6). Would love to make this an annual summer stay!"

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with 4 rather discerning guys in our party and had high hopes with mid-level expectations. We were blown away! Great location, beautiful property and very nicely appointed. Everything was super clean and the owner's attention to detail through all of the literature, explanations, directions, etc. were spot on. This was a VERY positive and easy experience for us. So much so that we are considering a twice annual rental of this house...summer and winter!

I have stayed in lots of rental homes and this one is by FAR the best one I have ever stayed in. The owners are super responsive and helpful. Janie even confirmed that there were hair dryers for us females so we didn't have to bring them! The place was SPOTLESS and well supplied! Every single thing worked, no leaks, issues, problems, and the house has all the best stuff. Well outfitted kitchen, even legit knives and serving pieces, awesome sound system, board games and washer dryer! We had an absolute blast and want to come back in the summer! It is also very spacious so even at capacity, you don't feel crammed in. Its about 10 min to the California lodge at Heavenly and close to grocery stores etc. It feels like you are staying at friend's house rather than an anonymous rental!

Wonderful White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (Grandparents, Aunt, Mom, Dad, kids 8 and 3) had a wonderful white Christmas at this beautiful Tahoe Keys home. First, Janie is an absolute pleasure to work with, she is very responsive and informative. Second, the view from the open living area is breathtaking. We could have sat by the fire and gazed out the window all day! The hot tub is great, especially after playing in the snow. We went skiing, snowshoeing, on a sleigh ride, and built a snowman. The house is spacious and comfortable. Plenty of towels, paper products, soap, and even shampoo/conditioner. We are already planning to return!

Great House for Family Tday

  • 5 of 5

This magnificent mountain house has served my family well for a few years now and we actually have start to consider it as our second Thanksgiving family home. Great spacious house with plenty of room for our family of nine. Very cozy and spacious. All of the family felt very much at home. Looking forward to staying again there this summer.
