Recently remodeled home in a quiet residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. We rebuilt this place from the studs up in 2011 and were able to customize it with a relaxing mountain holiday in mind. Enjoy the open layout and cozy downstairs hideaway or the two big decks overlooking a creek.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a hot tub, a grill, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

• Complimentary gift basket on arrival

• Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

• On demand hot water to keep up with lots of showers

• Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

• Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

• Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

• Level neighborhood makes snow driving much easier

• Not over crowded, only two people to a room

• Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

• No keys to lose, choose your own code for our digital lock

Upstairs features a large open plan kitchen and living area. Beautiful slate flooring, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and HDTV above the gas fireplace. Send the kids downstairs to the large flat screen with Playstation 3, the foozball table or the game area. Cook up dinner on the barbecue or soak in the hot tub from the decks overlooking the creek and trees.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. A master with a king bed and its own bathroom and two rooms with queen beds. Down stairs is lots of space including a forth bedroom (no closet) with a queen bed. There are also two twin futon couches. All your towels and linens are provided

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features alder cabinets and concrete counters. There are brand new fridgidaire appliances including a dishwasher and convection/microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

Relaxing is easy with a cozy fireplace and game and reading nook. The foozball table is great fun. We are wired for entertainment with 37' and 42' HDTVs, blue ray home theater, playstation 3, ipod dock and netflicks compatible wifi through out the house.

Location is key and this is a good one. Central in town you are close to everything. Heavenly 10min; Sierra at Tahoe 20min; Kirkwood 35min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 5min; Shopping 5min; Golf 10min. This is a quiet, flat residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home backs to a sunny wooded area and creek. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About the Owner

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and have been drawn to the place ever since. In fact I moved here permanently eight years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer.

Expectations met!

  • 5 of 5
From the very start to the very end, the planning was made easy!! The owner Duggan worked with us (we went up when the King fire was taking place). The cabin was very clean and modern. He had a basket of goodies on the table welcoming us. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was fully stocked. We brought our 19 mo old twins and the cabin was kid friendly. Me and my family enjoyed our stay and will be returning for years to come.

Was a small but comfortable home. There were 10 women. We found the downstairs beds to be VERY uncomfortable. Also, the carpeting needed to be cleaned. Kitchen was very well equipped. Ice maker didn't seem to work. Had to buy 10# of ice. Would think there would be a railing on the stairwell!!!

Owner's Response: This is our first and hopefully our only three star review. We were a little surprised as we had a lot of contact with this guest with no indication that they were having any issues until receiving this review. We gave them a tour of two of our properties months ahead of time and they chose this one, we spoke before and during their stay and gave them early and late check in and out.

I think most of the concerns mentioned can be chalked up to "expectations" but we have done our best to rectify them.

The house certainly looks small from the street but is 2000 square feet of living area with lots of large spaces. The floor plan is in the pictures and there is a video tour available for people to see. Our other house 492478 on vrbo is larger, at 2450 square feet, if you prefer.

The beds down stairs were all convertible futons/sofas (futons are firm, sofa is lumpy as most are). We had them more in mind for children. We have had this comment several times recently though so have partitioned part of the den in to a forth bedroom with a new queen bed. There are now three queen beds and a California king, comfortable sleeping for eight adults. The convertible beds are still available for kids.

This guest stayed early September and we had had only a handful of vacant days in the preceding 2 1/2 months with no time to steam clean carpets between bookings. There were certainly some stains. We have since had our intense Fall clean (we do one in Spring also) and had the carpets professionally cleaned. We have bought a spot cleaner and will do a better job of keeping up between professional cleanings. We dont hold guest deposits for minor, accidental staining of the carpet.

The ice maker in the freezer seems to be functioning as it should. As with most built in ice makers its not particularly large. Good for a few drinks every now and then, but if you are making cocktails for 10 you will need to purchase some ice.

There was no handrail on the stairs when we purchased the house and it never really crossed my mind. Thanks for bringing this up, I have installed a railing.

In Tahoe for a wedding

  • 5 of 5
We rented this adorable house for a 5 night stay in Tahoe for a wedding. We were a group of 7 friends from 4 different states, and the house was perfect for us. Duggan (the landlord) has done an amazing job of stocking the house with everything you could possibly need for a stay. The house looks small from the outside, but is quite roomy and comfortable. There was also an awesome welcome basket, and black book filled with information about the house and local places for food and groceries. Because we were all flying in and out, it was so nice to not have to buy a bunch of paper supplies, condiments, soap, etc. that we wouldn't be able to bring home with us. We were able to cook several great meals in the kitchen (and on the grill) and enjoy the hot tub. We didn't watch much TV (lots of wedding activities) but there were lots of channels available. Duggan was very responsive with all of our questions. Another plus - the beds were very comfy!

Would definitely recommend, and if we return to Tahoe (which we would all love to do!) we will stay at one of Duggan's properties again.

Activities we recommend: RumRunner Boat Cruise from the Beacon Bar and Grill. The Beacon Bar and Grill was a good location for lunch on the lake (though expensive, as everything in Tahoe is).
