Featured Lake Front Home

Majestically perched on the point lot of Tahoe Keys, this unique island themed home views Lake Tahoe in its entirety. Nearly new Bali Beach is pristine and exceptional from its private gated entrance and waterfall to its own sandy beach. Constructed with exotic teak wood  and mahogany, the home also has in-floor heating; state of the art electrical features; gourmet kitchen; 4 en-suite  bedrooms; several lake view decks and an impressive 290 feet of water frontage; a palapa shrouded tiki bar; and most impressive is an infinity style salt water spa!

The incredible details of this home create the illusion of a South Sea Pacific setting, yet in reality you are within 10 minutes of ski areas, casino night life and a municipal airport. But wait there's more. This home has a boat dock and all Tahoe Keys amenities including swimming pools and tennis courts. Truly a property that has it ALL!

Have you heard the news? The City of South Lake Tahoe is planning to change the rules for Vacation Rentals again. But what are they changing, and how does it affect you?

At this evening's special meeting of the South Lake Tahoe City Council, there was a unanimous vote to put an Urgency Ordinance in place to halt all Vacation Home Rental (VHR) permit applications from being accepted or processed.  This "freeze" is enacted for 45 days and could be extended for a longer period of time, or repealed as soon as at the next City Council meeting.

Council member Jason Collin requested to schedule the first reading of a revised ordinance to regulate the VHR permit application and operations on November 7th.

NOTE: The Zoning Administrator Hearing scheduled for tomorrow has been canceled.

We will continue to provide you with more news and information as it becomes available.

Vacation Home Rental (VHR) is a home or condo that is rented out for less than 30 days at a time. You may have heard of AirB&B or VRBO. These are popular websites where you can search for a home to stay in when you are on vacation.

But don't people just stay in hotels when they are on vacation? Many visitors prefer to have more room than a hotel can offer. Extra space helps when you are traveling with a large family or a group of friends. They have a full kitchen, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, and a living room where they can all hang out.

Staying in a VHR is becoming very popular. And because of its popularity, there has been a rise in complaints about them from the local community.

Currently, there are already rules in place for VHR's within the  City limits  as well as in the unincorporated County areas of South Shore. They range from maximum capacity restrictions to how many cars can be parked in the driveway. In order to run a VHR, you have to first receive a permit from the local jurisdiction. The permit process is pretty easy in the  County area , but within the City limits, it is more comprehensive. Check out our page on obtaining  a Vacation Home Rental permit  for more information on the process, and for links to the rules and documents from the City's website.
