Fully remodelled late 2013, everything is brand new.

Spacious home in a quiet, woodsy residential neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. Enjoy the massive open living area on the top floor and the many big bedrooms downstairs.

When you are searching for a home base for your perfect Tahoe vacation a lot of things should be standard. Beautiful clean décor and furniture, a kitchen that is a pleasure to gather and cook in, a grill, a hot tub, internet access and home entertainment options. We wanted to go a step further here are some other things we offer that the others might not:

Complimentary gift basket on arrival

Luxurious bath robes in the bedrooms

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap provided

Over stocked kitchen: spices, olive oil, balsamic, coffee, waffle maker, baking supplies

Local (contractor)owners for good advice and quick attention to issues

Not over crowded, only two people to a room

Gas fireplace, cozy, still heats in a black out

No keys to lose with our digital lock

There is an open lounge room and dining area. The gas fireplace is cozy and inviting. On the other side of the kitchen is the living area with a big sectional couch and 55' HDTV with bluray home theater and playstation game console. Or take your relaxing outside on to the deck overlooking massive pine trees and mountains

Cooking is a dream here. The kitchen features concrete counters and a bay window looking out to the woods and mountains. All the appliances are new, a big fridge, gas range, dishwasher and microwave. We have included everything you could need to bake or cook up a storm. There is a waffle iron and blender for whipping up delicious treats. If you prefer to do your cooking outside we have a big natural gas grill just out the door.

All the bedrooms are downstairs and they are all BIG. There is a master with a california king bed, 40' TV and its own bathroom and deck. There is another room with a california king and two rooms with queen beds, plus a full bath. All your towels and linens are provided.

The hot tub is on a ground level deck with views into the trees. We have a foos ball table for added fun.

Location is key and this is a great one. Central in town, but tucked up a hill in the woods, you are close to everything. Heavenly 8min; Sierra at Tahoe 25min; Kirkwood 45min;Casinos 10min; Beaches 10min; Shopping 10min; Golf 5min. This is a quiet residential area so access is easy and the nights are quiet. The home is surrounded by forest service land. Take it all in from the two big decks.

About Duggan Smith

I came to Tahoe on vacation from Australia in 1998 and was immediately smitten. In fact I moved here permanently ten years ago and have been loving it ever since. I am lucky enough to teach snowboarding at Heavenly each winter and work in construction during the summer. My wife Angela and I feel very lucky to be able to raise our two kids in this amazing outdoor playground.

Duggan Smith purchased this house in 2013

Why Duggan Smith chose South Lake Tahoe

We fell into the vacation rental business in 2010 after buying a house together with my mum, so Granny would have a place to stay when visiting our kids. Its been a great combination of my passions for real estate, construction and customer service. We loved this house for its amazing location with immediate access to endless forrest, great views, the huge living area and massive bedrooms

Nice large home with good layout

  • 5 of 5

The layout was great. All bedrooms down stairs and all living space on one level. Great deck for morning breakfast and late afternoon cocktails. We had 7 adults which was fine but it holds 12 people. That would be very tight. Would recommend it to anyone with a large family.

The house is spacious and the layout works well, however, it definitely needs to be maintained.

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean, but there were dents in the walls, scrapes/scuffs on the walls, the handle to the outdoor deck was broken off and several of the windows would not open. That proved to be a bit of an issue due to the fact that the weather was very warm. There were also several screens that we're off track and one was missing in a bedroom, so the bugs we're able to come into the house. We were able to use the yard as there were fire ant hills all over the back.

The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms we're great and very well equipped. The location was peaceful, quiet and convenient.

With a little more care, I think it could be a top notch property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us. I have a whole new patio door on order. I was unable to find a replacement handle alone. It will be installed as soon as it arrives. I was unaware of issues with windows and screens and ants. Thanks for bringing them to my attention, I will get them looked at right away. As always if anyone has an issue during a stay we are happy to come out and take care of it.
