Highly Recommended and perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5
Everybody loved the house. There was space for everybody. What really impressed us though were the extras:
1.) Plenty of towels for everybody
2.) Kids plates/cutlery/etc provided
3.) Tea and coffee provided (so thoughtful!) Also a Keurig provided
4.) Lots of supplies also provided
5.) Snow toys and/or beach toys provided

We couldn't ask for more. The house was beautifully maintained as well. We will definitely consider coming back here again! Diane was also extremely helpful and very friendly and responded in a timely manner. Thanks again, we made lots of memories this trip!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We were impressed with this home! It was large and spacious, very clean, and updated. Two families stayed and the adults and kids were very happy to be in this home especially having the game room. The location was great being in the forest area and not far from the lake. We all had an amazing time and will be back again! Thanks Diane for sharing this home with our family!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great cabin! Spacious (3500 sq ft), well stocked, lots of stuff for the kids, and in a great location. The cabin is very well decorated and in great condition. My experience with many rentals is that they put the minimal amount of supplies out (one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, one small container of dishwashing liquid, etc...), there are plenty supplies, so you don't have to run to the store and purchase stuff like that. It's kid friendly. Lots of great board games, Disney videos, and DVDs. Also beach toys, balls, and outdoor toys. My kids loved it. Nice hiking trails nearby and it's located right outside of South Lake Tahoe, offering a quiet getaway from the crowds, but really close to activities, restaurants, and stores if you need that.

Beautiful Mountain Ski House

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house as a winter ski house for the season. We've done this for a few seasons now in different houses, and this has been the best house by far. Here are some of the highlights:
(1) Great beds - these beds are better than my bed at home.
(2) Awesome living spaces - the owner's love this house and they've clearly spent a lot of time making everything perfect. From the surround sound audio to the bear-themed bathroom.
(3) Great location - super close to Heavenly, but also just far enough off Pioneer Trail that you feel like your in the mountains
(4) Automated doors and heat. Thinking about heading up early for the powder week? Text Randy and he'll turn on the heat so that it's toasty warm when you get there.
(5) The owners - they love making your stay comfortable. Quick responses to emails and texts.

Incredible Stay and Wonderful Vacation Rental in Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
We travel frequently and usually stay in vacation rental properties. This is by far the Best 5 Star Property we have stayed in. The whole process in arranging this rental went smoothly and my group was very impressed with these accomdations, completely top notch. Eveything was there as described and all the extra touches made it special - from the hot chocolate, coffee and tea welcome kit. Great thick towels, luxurious linens and very comfortable beds made our stay wonderful.

From the Owner

Beautiful location and close to all of South Lake Tahoe's amenities. Most importantly you can get away from the crowds when you visit Bear Villa. Play in the snow and come inside for a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Retreat to the 1000 sq. ft. game room for a game of pool, air hockey, surround sound movie watching, board game playing, etc...
