It was our first time in South Lake Tahoe and it won't be our last. This place was amazing. It exceeded our expectations. I can't think of anything negative to say about our stay. We absolutely loved it.
If you are looking for a gorgeous, well-maintained and beautifully-appointed home with a lake view, look no further! Floor plan is ideal and the location to the best of Lake Tahoe couldn't be better! Great for families and friends! Our family enjoyed every minute in this beautiful home! Communicating with the owner is always pleasant and prompt.
I can not say enough about this beautiful home and our experience! We rented "The Essence of Tahoe" for a week in July and it just wasn't long enough! We were ready to move in and stay indefinitely! The views are amazing and the house is immaculate and laid out well for multi families or intimate families. It is extremely kid friendly (little ones may have to be watched as there are stairs) I was amazed at the layout and the convenience of this beautiful home! It has full baths on each floor and an extra guest bath on the main floor as well. We never had a shortage of bathrooms or showers! TWO washers and dryers which is unbelievable! The decor is inviting and beautiful and yet comfortable enough that you don't have to worry about breaking anything. Very tastefully decorated! They spared nothing when it came to the comforabilty as well as the fine details of this home! Each bedroom has its own unique style and privacy as well as two complete master bedrooms with baths! The pictures you see is what you get!! I was a tad bit worried about crossing the street to go down the the water, however, it is a very quiet street and you are at the water in seconds! We were able to anchor our boat and SeaDoo's in the water where we could easily see them from the house. We have 6 children and 7 grandchildren and they all came up at different times and stayed. But we slept 12 people in this home easily with plenty of room to spare! There are plenty of deck chairs and tables tucked away neatly for the renters convenience as well as a Bar-B-Q on the very top deck which over looks the water as well. And the nights on that deck were incredible! Beautiful views - even at night! I have never met a more accommodating and attentive owner than Hutch! He answered every question we had and promptly! He sent an email to make sure we were settled and to see if we had any questions or concerns. We are already looking at our schedule to come up during ski season. We spent every day down at the water and every night out in the yard or on one of the two beautiful decks. Quiet and friendly neighborhood. This is not a rental - it is a home that you can rent! We have never had such a relaxing vacation in the 30 years we have been married! Thank you Hutch for an amazing experience!
We rent this spacious home for our family get-together every year now, which easily accommodates all 10 of us. We end up spending a lot of our time indoors enjoying the lake views from the warmth and comfort of this wonderful home! When we venture outside, we simply walk across the street to the beach and park. Taking a walk on the beach is very convenient! The home is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and well-appointed.
The location is perfect – with the beach, bike/kayak rentals, and shopping close by. We definitely recommend this home, so much that we have made it our annual retreat.
I reserved this home to celebrate my 50th birthday with a group of girlfriends. The home was gorgeous! Immaculate, beautiful furniture and décor and a dreamy cooks kitchen. The bedrooms were roomy and very comfortable and the view from both decks was amazing. I highly recommend this rental property.
