Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was amazing! We stayed after thanksgiving for a few days to do some hiking and be in the outdoors, and this was the perfect place to come back to. The location was fantastic - right near to stateline and the town, yet quiet and peaceful. It was also right across from the water with a park right in front of the house. The best thing about the house was the quality of the appliances, electronics, and house in general. Often at houses like this things can look nice but be fairly cheap. This was not the case here with a great surround sound system hooked up to the TV, great kitchen appliances, and great bathrooms! I'll definitely try to stay here again when I'm in south lake Tahoe, it can't be beat!

Fantastic Lakeview House

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this house with my husband, 2 children (4 yo & 8 mo old) and my parents. This house has so much space and is so well layed out. There was ample room for all of us. The interior design is very tasteful, and it is clear the owner spared no expense with the appliances and decor. The home was so clean, and we felt so comfortable. The view of the lake is just breathtaking. There is a quaint park directly across the street, and a few steps down the shore, we discovered a kids playground. There is a lovely trail through the wetlands by the river outlet just up the road. The house is centrally located, and is close to the markets and diners. It is less than a 10 minute drive to Heavenly resort, gondola ride, shops, movie theater and restaurants. That being said, you still feel like you are in a quiet secluded spot as the house is situated in a lovely residential district. Hutch was so easy to talk to, and was available at all times via phone or email. We will definitely be returning to this property. For as long as it's available, this will be our first choice Tahoe vacation rental!

catching up with family weekend

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place to get four families together. Plenty of space on main floor for all of us, plenty of kitchen space and beautiful view of lake. Furnishings are beautiful. With four levels adults and kids could separate but still be together. Lake and park are right across the street...would be great in the summer...since we went the end of October we didn't swim although several did wade out in the lake. Great home. Only disadvantage could be the stairs, especially if you're not used to them. Close enough to stores and restaurants that you can walk but it is a hike!

This is a lovely home - high end everything with beautiful lake views. Easy access to anything and everything you might want to do while visiting Lake Tahoe. We hiked, we rented bikes, we did some boating, all within minutes drive of the house. This house feels like Lake Tahoe and it's surroundings - tall, pretty, welcoming, comfortable and a breath of fresh air compared to most Tahoe rentals.

The rental process was easy and organized with clear instructions provided at every step. We would definitely rent again!

Great Accommodations and view of Lake!

  • 5 of 5
We treated our adult children and their families to a weekend in South Lake Tahoe and needed three to four rooms so a home seemed the most economical choice. Well we happened upon a gem when we came across this home. It had four bedrooms and was right on the lake and had a beautiful view of the lake! We were located right in South lake Tahoe close to activities and dining. We hope to stay here again!

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time, enjoying rooftop Barb-Q deck, great kitchen and house layout, and being steps from the beach and park. The low water leaves a long shallow beach that is great for playing in the water, especially with kids "ShoalTopia 2014!". The shallow water warms up nicely in the afternoon. It would be a bit of a wade to get to boat mooring depth, but doable. Walk to North upper truckee river and marsh trail, stores and restaurants.
We plan on returning this winter for a ski trip and next summer trip.
