California Pines Family Home 2265 California Avenue, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150

All on one level and sleekly designed for relaxing and entertaining, this three-bedroom South Lake Tahoe vacation rental is ready and waiting to be your home-away-from-home in the California mountains. With beautiful hardwood floors, an eye-catching fireplace, and a great location just south of the Tahoe Keys, this California Pines Family Home is sure to be the star of your memorable Tahoe getaway.

Surrounded by tall trees and clean mountain air, your whole group will find peace and relaxation here. Inside, the main living area is bright and open, with pops of color from the decorative throw pillows. Settle back for a night of cable or DVDs on the flat screen TV and Blu-Ray player, or enjoy the PlayStation!! Or perhaps, just turn off all the electronics and enjoy the ambiance from the gorgeous gas fireplace.

Just behind the wooden dining table is a modern kitchen loaded with charm and all of the stainless appliances and counter space that you'll need during your stay. There's an island for food prep, knives for chopping carrots and onions, a tea kettle, slow cooker, a toaster - there's even a coffee grinder for freshly ground coffee in the morning. Whoever is on chef duty will love preparing meals in this gorgeous space!

Out on the patio, you can enjoy an afternoon glass of wine, enjoy the horseshoe pit, fire up the gas grill for a cookout, and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Back inside, there's a foosball table for kids of all ages and free WiFi to stay connected while enjoying your time at this Lake Tahoe vacation rental. You'll even have a washer and dryer for doing laundry mid-trip if needed.

Two of the bedrooms have single queen beds, while the third bedroom has two queens. All of the rooms have comfortable bedding, bright linens, plush carpeting, and accessories like bedside tables and lamps. In addition, a sleeper sofa provides extra bed space, allowing up to 10 guests (eight adults) to be accommodated here.

Don't feel like making breakfast? There are a number of walkable options right along the main drag of U.S. 50. Stop at Keys Cafe for hearty breakfast burritos or La Baguette for a latte and freshly baked pastries. After you've fueled up for the morning, head to the water for some quality time on Lake Tahoe. Water ski, hit the beach, play some golf at the Bijoux Course, or just spend the afternoon browsing galleries and shops. Outdoor adventurers will want to lace up their hiking boots and set of for one of the area's popular hikes - Lake Aloha is a moderate, all-day 12-mile hike, while Angora Lake's 3.6 miles can be completed in about two hours.

In the winter, the slopes of Heavenly Mountain Resort are only five miles away. Ski and snowboard all morning, then return to your South Lake Tahoe vacation home for some R&R in front of a toasty fire. Or, strap on some snowshoes and venture out on the Eagle Creek Canyon trail. Year-round, casinos like Harrah's, MontBleu, and Harveys are just across the Nevada state line if you're feeling lucky.

Take the time to reconnect with friends and family at this lovely South Lake Tahoe rental. Nestled in the pine trees, you'll enjoy a spacious, modern decor, all the comforts of home, and an unbeatable location 10 minutes from skiing and snowboarding!

    Our family fell in love with this place. The house is very comfortable. We visited Tahoe end of January and we're expecting lots of snow but unfortunately there was a snow drought so we saw no snow at the property but we were able to find snow at Echo summit and heavenly which made the kids happy. Other then the lack of snow out family loved the place and our stay. We will defintely be back! Thanks again!

    A group of about 8 of us came up for MLK weekend hoping to see some snow. Unfortunately it was a sunny weekend. However, the house was better than we had expected from just the pictures. The space is quite large. 3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / laundry room. A foosball table in it's own room. Big backyard with a hammock and horseshoe. Seperate garage not attached to house that can fit up to 2 cars. We had an awesome experience. Would definitely keep this place in mind for future weekends.

    We liked the cabin so much that we don't plan to look for any other cabin next year, unless this one is already booked.

    LOVED: The house was beautiful inside with nearly everything updated and easy to use. Open and spacious floor plan made it easy for our large group to be together but not on top of each other. Plenty of seating for all too. All of this and central to the best of South Lake Tahoe.
    WISHED: the hide a bed sleeper had a better mattress and the AC cooled/worked. It was the hottest week of the year and still cooled off later.

    We had a great time hanging out and playing games at the large table that sat 8. The kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, serving pieces, pots, etc. Our point was to relax and spend most of the time indoors relaxing. The gas fireplace was really nice too. The location is very close to 50 and a short drive to Safeway and the Casinos. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!

    Great place. Very comfortable furnishings. Beautiful home. Fireplace was very nice as well.

    Living room sufficed for 8 adults and a kid to gather. Each of the 4 beds was very comfortable. There were also 2 foam pads, a baby crib, and lots of extra bedding that was not advertised, but was there in the closets if needed.

    Even had a sled and some toboggans that were not advertised, but were fun to have.

    Anyway, long story short, we loved the place!

    The house is exactly as the pictures show. Clean, beautiful and spacious. Used the fireplace to take off the morning and evening chill and it was beautiful to look at. Played some horse shoes and Bbqed. There are two bikes in the garage we took them out for a 10 mile ride it was wonderful the bike route starts about two streets down (Washington). Emerald Bay is just up and around the corner. It is a must see. The location of this house is perfect. Heavenly ski resort is just down the 50 for great winter fun. I can't imagine you could ever find yourself bored. One thing there were no kichen trash bags and I think those should be provide but I did not call anyone about it not really a big deal and we could not get the ps3 to play a DVD but we just used the player from one of the rooms. The washer and dryer work great and the water in the house gets hot. I like it that way but little ones need to be careful. We didn't bring any little ones this trip. Loved this house and you get to use the garage, it was perfect.
