This can be your home for a wonderful stay in South Lake Tahoe! It is clean, updated, and set up for your every comfort and enjoyment. To balance your adventure-filled South Lake Tahoe days, your home comes with an updated kitchen that a chef would delight in, great entertainment possibilities in the form of high speed WiFi Internet, a stereo with an iPod dock, cable television with HBO, Showtime and Cinemax, Play Station 2 with various games, 3 televisions (a large flat screen in the living room and upstairs master bedroom with full cable, one in the queen with DVD capabilities, and one in the downstairs playroom with DVD and VHS capabilities), and an easy to use gas fireplace to instantly make your home warm, cozy and inviting.

What makes this house unique

We love this home because it is centrally located to all that Lake Tahoe has to offer. We are about 1 mile away from the California Base Lodge for Heavenly Ski Resort, and it is possible to walk to Ski Run Boulevard and take the shuttle from there. We are also a block away from Bijou Community Park that has frisbee golf, a regular golf course, a kids playground, a bike park, a bbq area, and a beautiful meadow to walk through. We are also just a few blocks from the Powerline Trail across from Pioneer Trail that is fabulous for running and mountain biking, and will take you up to High Meadow, Starr Lake, and wherever else you would like to go.

Great for a family getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our ski weekend. We were a party of four adults and two kids and the home fit us all comfortably. Loved that it was family friendly - there are no photos in the description but there was an extra playroom full of games, books, and a TV/VCR combo with an assortment of movies. It was a pleasant surprise and kept my kids fully entertained. Heavenly was a short drive away, as well as all the shops/restaurants along Lake Tahoe Blvd. Great, convenient location!

Better than I expected - a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and all the instructions on how the tv etc worked were very detailed and helpful. We stayed at the house for a couple of days to attend a wedding nearby and were pleasantly surprised at the location (close to town and nearby safeway/restaurants) as well as how great the house was. My kids immediately went to the play room and fell in love with playing with all the toys and games in there. This was probably the best part for us because our 3 and 7 year old were able to entertain themselves for hours by playing with all the toys. We had a very nice time and any questions we had were quickly answered by Ivan via email. Would highly recommend this house and would stay again if we had the chance. thanks so much for having us in your home, we had such a great time!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Becka House. The house is cozy, well equipped, well maintained, and located in a quiet neighborhood.

The owner was very responsive and provided great customer services.

I would surely recommend it; it is a great place to stay in while in South Lake Tahoe.

Perfect get away home for families or a group

  • 5 of 5

We went with 6 people, including a 2 1-2 year old. We all had a great time. The home is located 5 mins always from restaurants, the casinos, and shops. Heavenly was also about 5mins. The home is beautiful, and very well kept. The fireplace is wonderful, the kitchen is very large and accommodating, and the rooms and bathrooms are modern and clean. We took advantage of all the snow in the back yard and played back there. I would highly recommend this lovely home. We can't wait to come back. Also the owner is very easy to talk to and replys quickly to any inquiry. Five stars!

Wonderful place for Christmas with the family

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place - so cozy and inviting. We stayed here for 5 nights during the holidays. The 2 upstairs rooms and bathrooms were so lovely and the downstairs rooms were perfect for the kids. One thing to note is that the owner has updated the entertainment systems in the house significantly which the pictures don't show. The CRT in the living room is replaced with large-ish flat screen that has cable and a roku ready with netflix available. The downstairs room with the 3 beds has a small tv with a VCR. One upstairs room has another flat screen and the other room has the CRT TV that was in the living room picture. Another thing to note is that there is no garage so if you have a lot of gear such as skis or snowboards, it might be more comfortable to keep them in the car although there is a small equipment rack near the door.

The heating system was fantastic and responsive. The gas fire place was a nice addition as well. The kids loved the playroom with the toys and they loved the bunk beds. The house is well situated near the Pioneer so easy to get to and the main road/casinos were an easy, quick drive away.

The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips.
