About the Owner

Bill and Kristin (pictured here summitting Mt. Rainier) and Jon are partners in owning this beautiful house, which we've named Heavenly Vista. We enjoy spending time in South Lake Tahoe and travelling, and feel that we provide our guests with a wonderful place to get away to in their own travels to Lake Tahoe. We can also provide information about local attractions and activities for our guests if they'd like, since we have lived there in the past.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Heavenly Vista was a very nice and comfortable place to stay!

Loved the kitchen which was fully equipped with every cooking utensil we needed! Hot tub was perfect after a day of snowboarding. Loved the Cal King master bedroom with its fireplace and another hot tub. Loved how detailed the wooden furniture was.

Great stay! We'll come back again!

Heavenly Vista... was indeed heavenly.

I cannot put into words how amazing this vacation was. Bill made everything so easy. This place has it all, and our group took advantage of every amenity. Hot Tub/Badminton/Horse shoes… we also brought our bean bag boards. We had to force ourselves to leave to go see the lake and enjoy Tahoe. I would say most of our weekend was spent at the cabin. We were there with 6 adults and were very comfortable. One couple had to sleep on the bottom of one of the bunks but said they would do it all over again. The kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked with everything you would need. The last day we did run out of toilet paper… but as I said… we barely left. The cabin is close to everything, so a quick safeway run took care of that. The keyless door was really nice for the couples who wanted to stay out a little later. We had so much fun and so many memories were made here. I can't wait to return to Tahoe and stay here again. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again Bill.

Went there with 3 children and 6 adults. There was plenty space for all of us, the area was very quiet, the house was clean, kitchen was very well equipped, we really loved it there! Bill was very attentive when we called him at our arrival. The key less door an extra bonus....Will definitely go back!

Great Home for a Great Holiday Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bill's "Heavenly Vista" over the Christmas holidays and had a great time. Everything needed and everything advertised was available and working perfectly for our family of five -- there was space for 3+ more travelers! We got over 6 feet of snow in 3 days and while we weren't out taking some great powder runs at Heavenly, we were enjoying the comfortable, fully-equipped mountain home. We used the hot tub, the master suite tub and all of the kitchen and audio/visual equipment with great enjoyment! We won't hesitate to come back the next time we head up for a family ski/holiday trip!

Great Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5
I had an excellent time at this house. It had everything I could want of or the weekend- best of all, a big private backyard with a hottub, horseshoe pit, badmitton court, bbq grill, etc. It was the perfect place for me and all my friends to hang out together. The inside of the house was really nice. A lot of stylish wood interior and new TV's, dishwashers, stereo etc. Spacious rooms. All very clean. Extremely helpful host who made everything easy. I hope to come back here again sometime and have another great weekend in Tahoe.

From the Owner

We purchased Heavenly Vista because it had the right mix of location, amenities, and character. It is located very close to all the best parts of Tahoe; skiing, swimming, boating, golfing, hiking and biking trails, and the casinos at Stateline for additional entertainment. The neighborhood is quiet, yet there is a big grocery store and a variety of restaurants close by. Heavenly Vista's character derives from it's rough-hewn mountain house looks mixed with Spanish flair, blending wood, stone, metal, fire (gas fireplaces) and water (hot tubs) for an elegant yet comfortable feel. That, coupled with the mountain views give it a character which definitely remind you that you are on vacation, and yet allow you to feel 'at home' being there. In addition to the great location, the house offers a variety of amenities without even leaving! Horseshoe pits and a sand badminton court in the private back yard, along with a shaded swinging couch, barbeque grill and patio furniture. The kitchen has everything you need to feed a family or large group, including kids right down to infants and toddlers. Two hot tubs and two gas fireplaces will help you relax and warm up, perhaps doing some stargazing, or watching TV or movies on the giant HD screen in the living room or in any of the bedrooms.
