A full size indoor air hockey table is available as well as team horseshoe toss outside as well as a children's sand pit.

There's an upstairs living room with vaulted ceilings in this bright, open, private home with over 2300 square feet to spread out in. The 42' HDTV entertainment system brings alive the great room that's adjacent to the open plan kitchen. The view from the balcony (with the chef's quality BBQ) of the lagoon and mountains in this 750 acre private marina is stunning.

Relax around the two fireplaces and personal master jacuzzi in this four bedroom, three full bath home. It's full of deluxe appointments including five color TVs and two DVD players. All overlooking a deluxe hot tub under an outdoor gazebo as well as the private dock, lawn furniture, horse shoe toss, marshmallow fire pit and sand pit.

There is also a second kitchen downstairs in the living room which is great for kids to watch DVDs or play air hockey.

Mt. SWILD, which can be seen from Heavenly, has exceptional lagoon and mountain views. There's wireless broadband, five cable TVs, a BluRay DVD Bose sound system upstairs, DVD player downstairs, dishwasher, two microwaves, washer/dryer and two gas/wood burning fireplaces.

Complimentary Services for Guests: There's bass, crappie and trout lagoon fly fishing from the dock. Launch your boat two minutes away in Tahoe Keys Marina. For golfers, Mt. SWILD is a perfect location to enjoy Lake Tahoe's excellent gold courses.

Guests have the complimentary use of six mountain bikes, tandem kayak and two snow sleds. The fenced kennel has a dogloo, pooper scooper, water and food bowls for your dog's enjoyment.

There's a two car garage with additional off-street parking for two more vehicles - critical for snow removal. Sorry, no smoking.

Exclusive Tahoe Keys Amenities: Exclusive Tahoe Keys amenities, including an indoor Olympic pool, health club and private beachside pool are available for a daily use fee. Seven tennis courts, basketball court, a sand volley ball court and a putting green are also available.

"A quick note to tell you how much my family and I enjoyed our stay at your beautiful rental home. The house, furniture, decor, and kitchen supplies were remarkable. I cannot think of a single thing I would suggest changing. Expectations were well exceeded and I hope to have an opportunity to stay again soon." Stephanie

Safari-Theme Home stay review

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at the beautiful Safari-Theme Home. It was absolute pleasure to deal with the owner Paul. The home's floor plan was perfect for accommodating a few families with kids. Kitchen included everything we could think off. Jacuzzi tub was a bliss in cold air under the stars. We will definitely want to come back to this home and enjoy the serenity of Tahoe Keys.

We just returned from our 5 night stay and we loved the safari theme house! It had everything we needed and was very spacious. My husband and I brought our 2 kids, daughter's friend, and my mom. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out! All of us enjoyed the air hockey, horse shoes, and kayak! It was nice that life jackets were provided. We hope to return next year!

Owner's Response: Glad your vacation at the safari-theme home went so well! As the water is so high this year in Lake Tahoe, swimming from the home's dock was better than ever. Come back soon and don't forget skiing this winter. You can see Heavenly from the kitchen, Sierra@Tahoe is perfect when it snows and Kirkwood is for power hounds.

Excellent Stay in Lake Tahoe

We had an awesome time in this home! It's light and airy with a great open floor plan! The backyard was great and the views were unbelievable! The house was clean and welcoming! We were only minutes away from restaurants, stores, and the marina. The private beach was great and all the people were so friendly. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and family!
