A Walk-thru of our Elegant Home:
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, wide 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 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 phone to stream music (or create your favorite station on the internet-enabled TV).
Explore the master suite, decorated in unique ironwork and numerous built-in cabinets w/ 27" flatscreen. 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, side-by-side showers, his and hers sinks, and a special winter treat, the steam shower. Check out the view of Heavenly Ski Area from the MBR windows or private balcony.
Gather downstairs around the flat screen 46" HDTV to watch Premium Sports Tier channels, or choose a DVD from the extensive video library. You'll also find a keyboard for making music and a wet bar with a small refrigerator.
Peek into bedrooms 2 and 3, EACH with a quality pillow-top queen bed and views across the water. The 4th bedroom contains 2 twin beds. All bedrooms are spacious, with large mirrored closets. Additional sleeping arrangements consist of a queen sofa bed in the upstairs living room, and a comfortable queen futon in the den downstairs.
Take a peek in the garage to find built-in ski and boot racks, snow sleds, 3 pairs of snowshoes, two kayaks, four Mongoose mountain bikes, and our newest addition, a ten-foot STAND-UP PADDLEBOARD. All to be used at your own risk!
Grab one of the fishing rods and some Powerbait and try your luck on the dock or one of the local creeks. (Over 16 years of age need California fishing license.) Choose a game of croquet, bocce ball, badminton, or volleyball on the level back lawn. Enjoy the jet massage in the hot tub, or hang the hammock for a siesta.
Across the lawn, the private boat dock is yours to use. Tahoe Keys Marina provides the nearest launch. They also rent boats, jet-skis, tubes and more. The Tahoe Keys waterway directly accesses Lake Tahoe, with Emerald Bay just a short cruise away.
All Tahoe Keys community amenities are available for a small fee to our vacation rental guests. The Heated Indoor Olympic-sized Swimming Pool and large outdoor spa are open year-round. Take your pick of activities including, Lakefront Outdoor Pool and Pavilion, Private Beach, Children's Playground, Beach Volleyball, Basketball, Putting Green and 7 Tennis Courts.

We had a great time at this beautiful home. It had all amenities we needed and more, lots of space in a beautiful waterfront setting. Really enjoyed the bikes & kayaks! And swam at the community pool. Would definitely come back.

We love staying here. Our most recent of four stays was in Sept., 2011. With spectacular views of the water and mountains, this home is welcoming, comfortable, high quality and so meticulously maintained that it feels new each time we arrive. The décor is tasteful and uncluttered. Everything you need (and don’t know you need) is well stocked.
It’s obvious that much care was put into making this place fun and memorable for families and guests of any age. The great room naturally lends to lively gatherings for meals, movies, games and relaxing by the fire. The large kitchen works well for cooking and conversing with guests. There are plenty of bedrooms and extra sleeping possibilities upstairs and down, as well as indoor activities and all kinds of sports equipment in the garage for outside use. One of our favorite pastimes is simply sitting and talking in the living room with the grand views in the background.
Try some of the owners’ suggestions of things to do in their Local Attractions book. The owners clearly find and create interesting and enjoyable opportunities in the South Lake Tahoe area, then thoughtfully share them with their guests. Also, if you have access to a boat, use it here. The ride through Tahoe Keys and out onto the lake to pristine Emerald Bay is beautiful and serene. Whatever you might want is nearby - water, snow, mountains, shops, entertainment, restaurants, more. The owners are helpful, friendly and accommodating. Great year-round to just put up your feet or go out and have fun. Highly recommend.

This is a lovely home with room for a whole family (or two!). We were in Tahoe for a wedding and this location served as a wonderful place to get away and relax with each other. The house is very clean and meticulously maintained. It is exactly as described. The owners are wonderful and were able to answer all my questions - I had to call about the trash compactor and was able to call Jane and figure it out right away.
