  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tom for letting us use your home, it was perfect. We really appreciate you keeping the kitchen stocked we were able to find every utensil we needed for cooking. We also enjoyed the bikes and the easy access to the water for kayaking. It really is a beautiful spot there. There were also chairs, helmets, bikes & a nice big garage. Very close to the bike trail and water access just steps away. The outdoor fireplace was really nice too.

Fun in the snow

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect size for my four kids and parents. We were 10 minutes from playing in the snow and my parents were 10 minutes from the casinos. The house was clean, comfortable and in the perfect location. We had a really nice time. Thanks Tom.

Tom's place was the best !!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed at Tom's place for New Year's Eve. The cabin was great; it fit all of our needs. Plenty of beds, roomy kitchen equipped with everything needed, nice open floor plans. Definitely has the home vibe which is very welcoming when on vacation. I would recommend Tom's cabin to all and would absolutely stay there again !! Thanks Tom !!

Fantastic Vacation Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Tahoe the week after 4th of July weekend and couldn't have asked for more relaxing and tranquil trip. Tom's house is the perfect place to decompress with everything you could ask for from bicycles to barbecue! The space and decor of the home reflects the Tahoe Basin perfectly! I can't wait to return soon again. Highly recommended!

Great vacation at Lake Tahoe while staying at Tom's Tahoe Keys House

  • 5 of 5

We decided to make a quick getaway to Lake Tahoe and Tom was very accommodating to make his house ready for us on such short notice. When we arrived at the house, we noticed how clean and well kept the house looked. The house has a nice open concept and there is plenty of room in the kitchen/dining area for everyone to gather around. The patio is enclosed and has a nice barbecue and table which we used to cook dinner one night. The bedrooms are a nice size and there are plenty of comfortable beds. The house is very well organized and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware. My wife loved Tom's smartphone book which had information on Lake Tahoe such as the history of Lake Tahoe, dining, activities, etc. We used the bicycles at the house for our daily rides to get coffee and to ride the trails. The bikes are in great shape and worked fine. The house location is next to the pools, beach and tennis courts. This is a quiet neighborhood so it was nice to sit outside at night on the patio. I have been telling my friends about this great vacation home and my family plans to use it again next summer. Thanks Tom!!!!!

From the Owner

After visiting South Lake Tahoe over many years, I fell in love with the area. Tahoe Keys is one of the nicest communities on the South Shore and has so much to offer year round. Awestruck upon seeing South Lake Tahoe for the first time in 1862, Mark Twain uttered, “It must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords.” I call it a slice of heaven and tell people my blood pressure drops by 15 points upon arrival.
