Property Details

Updated: Feb 27, 2015
Contemporary 4BR/3BA Tahoe Keys home, VIEWS, Dock, Kayaks, SUP, Bikes, Snowshoes

Tahoe Waterfront Rental has spectacular views of the waterway and Mt. Tallac from the expansive great room windows; see Heavenly Ski Area from the upstairs master suite. Large fenced yard opens to new private boat dock with direct Lake Tahoe access. Luxurious outdoor 8-person hot tub with views of the waterway and mountains, protected from snow by large upstairs deck. High Speed 25Mbps Broadband Internet, WiFi. Great room has 55'' flatscreen 3D-HDTV with Internet and Premium Sports tier, 3D BluRay DVD player. 46'' flatscreen HDTV and keyboard downstairs. Toys include Stand-up Paddleboard (SUP), kayaks, bikes, snowshoes... Bright entertainer's kitchen and dining room have hardwood floors, with seating and VIEWS for 14. Watch the sunset and boats from the balcony or over-water deck. 4-burner Turbo natural gas BBQ. Close to World-class skiing: Heavenly Ski Area (10 minutes), Sierra-at-Tahoe (20 minutes), Kirkwood (40 minutes). Access to Tahoe Keys HOA Tennis courts, pools, playground and beach available to guests for a small fee.

TAHOE'S AWESOME MAJESTY: Seasonal flower beds and expansive lawn greet you when you arrive at this meticulously maintained home. Entering the front door you are met with light flowing through a beautiful glass-block wall. A gentle set of stairs leads up to the great room, boasting soaring ceilings and light shining in through the skylights and massive view windows. You will be drawn to the generous deck overlooking the waterway, with a backdrop of majestic mountain peaks. Mt. Tallac, with its trademark cross of snow will pull your vision as you take in the grandeur of the glacier-made Tahoe basin.

You may decide to sit awhile in the golden teak chairs as you breathe in the freshness of the mountain air: or you may not be able to resist exploring the rest of the property. Re-entering the great room you will notice the huge round solid maple dining table with seating for 8, making note of the beautiful lazy-susan, as you imagine the family memories to be made around this table.

THE GREAT ROOM: The grand kitchen, with granite countertops and additional island seating for six more, will delight the serious chef in you. The Thermador gas range, walk-in pantry, and generously outfitted cupboards allow you to entertain in high style.

Turning to the professionally decorated living room, sporting black leather furniture with ample seating for all, imagine sitting by the blazing gas-log fireplace, or watching a movie in sharp 3D with theatre-quality surround sound on the 55'' flatscreen HDTV. Plug in your iPod (or create your favorite station on Pandora) for music throughout the house.

Explore the master suite, decorated in unique ironwork and numerous built-in cabinets. Luxuriate in the king-size pillow top bed with high-quality linens, or relax in the softly lit spa-like bathroom. You will find a deep jetted-tub, his and hers sinks and showers , and a special winter treat, the steam shower. Check out the view of Heavenly from the MBR windows or private deck.

HAVE SOME FUN: Downstairs, gather around the 46'' HDTV for TV or a movie. You'll also find a keyboard for making music and a wet bar with a small refrigerator.

There are 3 elegant guest rooms downstairs; two with pillow-top queen beds and views across the water. The 4th bedroom has 2 twins beds. All bedrooms are spacious, with large mirrored closets. Additional sleeping arrangements consist of a Q sofa bed in the upstairs living room, and a comfortable Q futon in the den.

Take a peek in the garage to find built-in ski and boot racks, snow toys, 3 sets of snowshoes, 2 kayaks, 4 Mongoose mountain bikes, and our newest addition, a ten-foot Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP). All to be used at your own risk!

Grab one of the fishing rods and try your luck on the dock or one of the local streams. Choose a game of croquet, bocce, volleyball or badminton on the level back lawn. Enjoy a jet massage in the hot tub or hang the hammock for a siesta.

About the Owner

Our Philosophy on Renting Directly from Owner:

We have rented lovely vacation homes and condos directly from owners for many years. The original idea was to eliminate the mark-up of a middle man or property manager. This concept still works! Because you work directly with us, the owners; unlike many other properties which are actually managed by a rental company for a hefty commission; we are able to offer a discounted rate for a top-notch property!

We have owned and enjoyed our second home in Tahoe for 17 years. Our children, family and friends have built lasting memories there as you will see when you read our journal/guest book. We hope that you will continue that tradition.

We are excited by the prospect of sharing our home with you. We will be more than happy to share local area information and knowledge with you to enhance your time at Lake Tahoe. We welcome your questions, ideas and suggestions.

Jane and Roger

My group of 9 had a wonderful stay this weekend. The upstairs area is extremely spacious and a great area for everyone to be together. We were pleasantly surprised with a few of the master bedroom features - dual blanket warmers, steam shower, jacuzzi tub. A couple of our guests used the hot tub and said it gets pretty hot and had no problems (of course, it's adjustable)! I very much appreciated the cleanliness of the home. We were unable to use the grill because it was soaked through due to rain (it has a cover, but for some reason was not covered before we arrived) but we were still able to cook a great Saturday dinner in the gourmet kitchen. It was only a 15 min drive to the Heavenly ski resort, very convenient for our group. Janie was also very helpful before/during/and after booking, great communication. Thank you so much, and would highly recommend to anyone!

Owner's Response: I'm so very sorry about the wet BBQ. Tahoe had a good drenching, with fierce winds, the day of your arrival. We will be sure to more securely batten down the cover from now on!

What a beautiful home!! The pictures don't entirely do it justice. There were 10 of us (5 couples) who stayed at the house, and we all had plenty of room and were comfortable the entire time. The kitchen, living and dining room are incredibly spacious, and the view is spectacular! The fireplace, hot tub, and large windows providing natural light were some of our favorite features. Janie was a wonderful host, as well! She helped us make the 4th bedroom more comfortable for our group by pushing together the 2 twin beds and covered it with a king mattress pad, was easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any of our questions. I'd love to come back to stay in the summer time to take advantage of the backyard, BBQ & boat dock :) Thanks again for an amazing stay, Janie!

Our family of 8 adults thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful stay during the week of New Year's Eve 2015 at this rental property. It exceeded our expectations in regards to amenities, open layout, cleanness, and location. The kitchen was well equipped for gourmet meals, and the dinning/living room area provided a great place to play games or watch a movie. We also skied, went to the casinos, and enjoyed some of the local restaurants.

We would definitely rent this property again and recommend it to friends and relatives.

What a fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to book Janie's beautiful house in the South Lake Tahoe Keys for the Christmas weekend. The house had absolutely everything our party of 10 people needed, not to mention the amazing view and prime location. The house was spotless upon arrival and Janie was a very good communicator. Like other reviewers have said I would definitely recommend the property to anyone who is looking to stay in the area and I am hoping to return in the future!

Tahoe and house was great!

My family including my sister from Oregon, my nephew and teenage kids from California, my adult son and his fiancé from Florida and my adult daughter and I from Houston spent Thanksgiving 2014 at this lovely home. We cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner with all the sides in the great kitchen, fished and fed ducks off the pier, hiked, biked and skied during our 5 day stay. The house is perfectly designed to accommodate everyone's needs and has all sorts of equipment to enjoy your stay including kayaks, BBQ grill, lovely porch and lots of games to play.

I would recommend this property to anyone. It's close to everything in South Lake Tahoe and has a beautiful view.
