Amazing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The property was amazing and the owner was very responsive. We loved the property and decor. He has really given you a place where you can kick back and relax while enjoying mountain views. The beach is a short drive away, as well as the marina. Everything was well outfitted for a vacation such as dishwasher, spices, linens, movies, and even random things like a fondue pot and kitchen aid! We will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and I pride myself in providing a vacation rental that sets itself apart from the 'usual'. I like to cook myself, so having copper pots, blenders, hand mixers, paella pans, fondue pots, a raclette grill, scales, baking utensils and forms are a must to enjoy one's vacation. Hope to see you again soon as my guests.

Look No Further : This IS The Place To Stay.

  • 5 of 5
Our 9th annual Tahoe summer vacation trip with our two dogs always begins with me finding us a place to stay from VRBO. Every year I troll through the listings, hoping to find a place better than we've ever stayed. Before this year, most of our post trip conversations were of the many complaints we had of the place we stayed. This year was different. So next year I won't be trolling VRBO for "a better place to stay" because this is the ONLY place we will stay from now on.
Owner, his name is Michael : Absolutely, by far, the best & easiest individual we've ever dealt with. Upon our arrival, there was some trash the previous renters left outside of the home (a big no-no in these parts) & within 20 minutes of our notifying him he had a crew of people picking up the trash. 20 minutes.
Location, Can You Say "Near the Water?" : The home is located within a community called The Tahoe Keys, by-which the guests have access to all of the privileges the owner has, including, but not limited to, a quaint PRIVATE PIER & secluded beach area, which is less than a 3 minute (beautiful) walk from the home. It's just past the amazing little two seat bench on a tiny hill nestled between 3 pine trees and right near the outdoor pool (again, all private & only accessed by owners/guests).
Home, I Call It What It Feels Like : I always say you can judge a place by the look of the doors - STUNNING! We have yet to encounter a place that doesn't have a bit of a strange or unusual layout. Probably, in part, due to the multi-level nature of the places we decide to rent, so we come to expect that when we come to Tahoe. We found this homes' unusual layout to actually be quite & exactly, PERFECT. The downstairs 2 bedrooms & bathroom (w/walk in shower, sauna, & jetted large tub) area co-exists w/a front room w/a t.v. beautiful bar area, microwave, fridge, sink, wine cooler which leads to 1 of 2 patio access points to the HUGE backyard & jacuzzi. The dogs absolutely loved running around on the lush green, well maintained grass!
As you go on upstairs, be sure to look up at the gorgeous, huge hanging Indian scene light above your head. Exquisite!
Once upstairs you'll find a kitchen so well stocked with every appliance, implement & cooking tool you could hope to ask for. Spices? Don't bring yours, they are already here! Laundry room - state of the art. The HUGE "OMG Master Bedroom" w/private patio & HUGE jetted tub w/skylight! A++ Entire house has skylights! Look. Just book it!

Owner's Response: Wow. I don't blush easily but this is the best review I have gotten so far. I am so happy that I could make your and other people's vacation unique. The way you described 'trolling around' VRBO and other sites every year, made me laugh as this is what I did 20 years ago for several years until I decided to buy my own place up here and make it what I expect when I go on vacation - I am so glad I succeeded and look forward to having you as my guests again.

With this wonderful home it was easy to have a fantastic vacation. We were a family of 7 and the home had everything we needed to have a wonderful time. The car was not needed for the kids (Non driving teenagers) everything right on the property or a bike ride away. We will be back!! Thank you Michael

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice review. I am very happy to see that my home worked out so well for you. It is nice not to have to drive and be able to use the tennis courts, pools, boating, Marina restaurant, gym and other amenities on foot. Winters are great too and Heavenly ski resort is only a very short drive away. Hope to see you soon as my guests again.

Big lovely house, great location

  • 5 of 5
This house is very large, perfect for two couples or one large family with several children. The top floor has the main kitchen as well as 2 bedrooms, dining rooms, bathrooms and so on. The downstairs has a bathroom, 2 bedrooms, & a wet bar or mini kitchen. Everything is as described on the website.

We were particularly impressed with the amenities in a house. The cupboards were full of useful items for people arriving after a long trip, and there was wine in the wine cooler downstairs as well as some liquor in the cabinet and upstairs bar.

The large deck on the back of the house was perfect for outdoor dining or a cup of coffee in the morning. The large, fenced, grassy back yard was a happy place for the dog traveling with our party of 4 adults and 2 children.

The house is a short walk from the beach on the lake, and both of the community swimming pools are within about 200 yards of the front door. There is an excellent marina about 1 mile away from the house, as well as a nature preserve with paths. Shopping of various kinds is within a couple of miles of the house, and the base of the Heavenly Valley ski area is perhaps 10 minutes away by car.

Finally, we found the house owner to be extremely helpful, communicative, and pleasant. When we had a question about trash pickup, he answered quickly and thoroughly. We enjoyed this house, and the entire experience with it, so much that we are considering renting again next summer if the schedules of all of us will allow. While not inexpensive, the house was terrific value for the money. We couldn't have been happier.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. When I read a review like this it makes me feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do. It is not my intent to rent to the house to as many people and as often as I can, but to really provide a 'home away from home' with a personal touch for my guests. Thank you again and hope to have you as my guests again next summer.

House is awesome with many amenities.

My family and I including Tucker, our yellow lab had a great 4th of July week at this house. it's got a great backyard, spa, huge deck, and a nice lawn. The house is walking distance to the pool and the lake. Michael, the owner was great to deal with and made sure the house was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. We are definitely return renters!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Tahoe Keys is a playground which includes tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools and lake access all within a couple of blocks from this property. Cycling, running and hiking trails as well as golf and snow mobiling are close by. Heavenly ski resort is a mere 5 miles from this mountain home.

Rent your boat and water ski or celebrate special occasions right in the Tahoe Keys Marina. Among the many great restaurants that this area offers, is the Ketch Seafood Restaurant in the Marina which has been voted best seafood restaurant on the lake many years in a row - it's a 10 minute walk to the Marina from this property.

There is also the only hot air balloon ride launched off a barge in the middle of the lake right in the Marina.
