Property Details

This home has so many fun amenities, unlike any other private home you have ever rented.

There is an indoor pool heated year round to 85 degrees F, a dry sauna, a steam room, a jacuzzi, pool table, foos ball table!!! You'll never leave the house!

Built in 2001, The South Lake Tahoe Castle has been among the most highly rented vacation home rentals in South Lake Tahoe. Thousands of people have stayed here over the years. You will have so much fun enjoying the amenities that you may never even go into town!

* Indoor swimming pool heated year round to 85 degrees F
* Separate steam room
* Separate dry sauna
* Jacuzzi right on deck with stars overhead
* BBQ Grill (Propane)
(note all 4 of these amenities are in the same general area, allowing you to pop in and out of all 4 of these amenities until your head is spinning from so much fun, literally)
* This home is among the few homes in South Lake Tahoe with central air conditioning

*** SPECIAL NOTE: This is an older home with many moving parts and very high occupancy levels. All major amenities in the home work great, however due to the age of the home, high occupancy, the high levels of humidity from the pool, extreme snow, expect intermittent outages of things such as fireplaces, ceiling fans, waterfall. Our maintenance teams are always fixing things in this home, however please understand this home requires constant maintenance due to the many moving parts of the home ***

* Master Bedroom 1 - King Bed, with private master bathroom with separate shower and jetted tub
* Bedroom 2 - Queen bed
* Bedroom 3 - Queen bed
* Large Loft (Counts as a legal bedroom) - 2 sets of twin over twin bunk beds (Note: Bunk beds, particularly the top bunks may not be suitable for tall or heavy people), Please note: The loft no longer has a couch, it has a futon sleeper which can lay flat to sleep.

In the loft we also have a pool table and foos ball table.

The home is in a beautiful mountain setting surrounded by tall trees, on a quiet cul de sac. It is on a private, spacious lot with lots of space between the nearest neighbors.

Please look at the photos of the driveway. 4 WHEEL DRIVE vehicles are pretty much mandatory in winter, all 4WD should also carry chains. To enter the driveway, you must navigate through the very narrow driveway entrance, then go up through a curving steep incline. In the winter, there is almost always a layer of snow or ice on the driveway. Most vehicles that get stuck, get stuck in the middle so it is not recommended that you stop in the middle portion of driveway. Either drive to top of driveway, or stay at the bottom of driveway. 2WD cars should not come to this property December 15- April 1. We have shovels, please help yourself if you need help getting into the garage. On top of this difficulty to get up our driveway and garage, it is important to understand that our street is on a cul de sac. It is all uphill to get out, and is among the last streets to get plowed by the county. You may easily get stuck on the street trying to leave if you are not fully prepared with a good 4WD vehicle. During a major storm, it may be next to impossible to leave our street until the snow plows come through our street at least once. Although our maximum allowed parking is 4, it will be very difficult, close to impossible to get more than 3 cars to fit easily on the property in winter. During December 15 to April 1, we are not allowing more than 3 cars on our property due to all the snow that builds up, and the very high snow banks that makes our driveway even more narrow. Our private snow plow service will not plow the driveway unless it is empty. On days of heavy snow, we strongly recommend keep 2 cars in garage, and 0 cars on driveway otherwise you may need to remove driveway snow on your own with our shovels.

It is very illegal to park on the street at all times, especially in the winter due to constant snow plowing. You will receive a very expensive citation and will be towed.

Maximum Occupancy: 10
Maximum Parking: (4 allowed by law, but realistically only 2-3 can easily park in the winter) 3 cars should have 4 wheel drive or chains during winter months. Expect major backups with our snow removal services during heavy snow periods. This is outside our control. Our road may be impassable during heavy snow, and our driveway may go unplowed if cars are on the driveway. 1 in driveway, 2 in garage. Absolutely no street parking is allowed by law.
Guests may not exceed maximum allowed by law for even 5 minutes.

Cleaning fees also include: Maintenance, supplies, restocking costs. This pays for guest consumables (Such as laundry detergent, soaps, shampoos, starter set of paper towels, tp, etc. For longer stays, we ask guests to purchase). Replacement of items such as broken coffee makers, portable heaters, fans, linens, towels and more. Regular trash removal from bear bins to town dump. We ask guests to assist with optional checkout procedures that are very time consuming such as start dishwasher, wash a load or two of towels. While these procedures are optional for guests, they are highly appreciated to help save our cleaners time, particularly for our back to back turnovers which are very difficult in the Vacation Home Rental industry. – Thank You Lux Villa VR

Note on cancellation policy: Please note that booking a visit to Lake Tahoe comes with some risks of guests wishing to cancel and receive a refund due to natural disasters or weather related events. Our cancellation policies are strictly enforced regardless of the reason for cancellation. If you need to reschedule your date, you must be in compliance with cancellation policy first. If there is a blizzard, road closure, fire, smoke, rock slide, avalanche and/or any other natural disasters, our cancellation policy will still be enforced as we cannot expect our property owners to be held accountable for refunds for natural disasters which are expected to occur in the High Sierra Nevada Mountain Range on a constant, regular basis.

Everything was good. The amenities were great. The rooms were really hot at night. But there were fans in the closet for use. We enjoyed the place and would rent it again someday the only small issue we found was that there’s a mouse in the kitchen. But not a big deal it just scared the girls.

Overall it was a great spot for a bachelor party weekend! The sauna and steam room definitely were needed after long nights out. Host was great with communication and follow up!

Thank you so much for allowing us to visit this beautiful home. It was perfect for my birthday and we all had so much fun!
The castle had everything we needed and actually exceeded all expectations.
The kitchen was completely stocked with utensils, cups, plates, and silverware. The bbq grill had propane which is huge plus if you don’t want to leave the house for food.
Everything was super clean and the jacuzzi, sauna, and steam room all worked. The pool room was clean as well.

Everything was 10/10

Great place and great amenities! The two saunas, indoor pool and outdoor hot tub were great to have. The kitchen had everything you needed and the property manager was a good communicator. Note that the 4 bunk beds are two bunk beds/4 (small) beds. The queen beds seemed more like full beds, but we were able to fit two adults in each. I’d recommend this place for anyone looking for a fun place to entertain!

Thank You for letting us stay in your home. Our family had a great time. Enough room for everyone. Kids loved the pool. Kitchen was lovely. All the windows with the natural light was awesome. Seen a few wildlife as well most mornings and evenings. Garage code did stop working on the last day but we could open it from the inside. Living room deck was a little scary. Boards had already been replaced and another broken which was reported. We didn't allow the kids on that deck. But over all couldn't ask for a better place to spend time with family that we don't get to see very often. And that's is what mattered the most. This is a beautiful home. It was enjoyed by all 10 of us. Thank you again!!

The cabin was beautiful. We had made used of all the fun amenities.
We want to extend our thank you to Lux Villa VR’s team for their service. The property management had made our trip a pleasant one. It was easy to access the property. They were very accommodating. None of us wanted to leave. Once again, thank you for allowing for us to create new family memories.

We celebrated my wife’s 40th birthday at this house. She is from Columbia. We had 8 family members come from Columbia. They had never been in the snow. It was amazing. The house was perfect To accommodate a large group. What I like the most about it they were in the swimming pool room listening to Colombian music dancing having a wonderful time and I was able to be sitting in the living room watching TV. The house is very well separated. Between the pool table the Jacuzzi steam room etc. everybody was blown away with all of the activities. If your large group you cannot go wrong they will have these memories forever.

Driveway not cleared of snow upon arrival. Snowed all week long. Did not get one single call to ensure we did not need any further snow removal for the duration of our stay. House temperature 40 upon arrival. Took multiple hours for house to get up to correct operating temperature. Deck fully covered w/snow, zero access. Grill on deck covered w/snow,zero access. Front door access - fully covered w/snow. Sliding doors - fully covered w/snow zero access. Hot tub - fully covered with snow - zero access. Only 1 way in and 1 way out of house through garage. I can not express how much of a fire hazard it is for all of the exits of this home to be barricaded with snow and zero access. Master bedroom leaking water all week from the leaking roof. MB floor wet all week long due to leak in roof. MB floor smelled like mold and mildew. MB has black mold which can be seen in pictures attached. Steam room smelled like mold and mildew Black mold throughout entire house which can be seen in pictures

The house has a lot of fun amenities such as the indoor pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub. As other reviews noted, this house needs maintenance. The bathroom faucet dripped constantly and has a large stain, the cabinet door is broken, and the living room furniture had stains on it. The carpet needs to be replaced. This house needs some TLC but has great amenities.

As many other reviews state, the home definitely needs some upgrades and some things replaced. A lot of things are definitely outdated BUT we didn’t let any of these small inconveniences ruin our trip. The house was awesome! We had a lot of fun with our large group. Definitely does look much more bigger in pictures, but still incredible either way. My only advice for future guests booking: if your a Karen and like to complain about the smallest of things, do not book this home… go somewhere else and pay more if you don’t want anything to bother you. BUT if your a chill person who doesn’t let minor stuff bother you, this place is for you and you cannot beat this price for all the amenities

Avoid this Airbnb. The pool isn’t all that great.

Here’s a list as to what went wrong:
- The oven did not work and did not have a thermostat

- The grill area and hot tub area were not plowed out. Making it EXTREMELY hazardous to go outside. Two people from my group slipped on the ice.

- The steam room smelled absolutely terrible, wasn’t able to use it due to the smell.

- The pool was covered with no instructions on how to remove the cover and where to keep it

- The heater was very fickle, the thermostat couldn’t read the living room temp so the heater wouldn’t turn on and if it did it would stay on for far too long

- The driveway was EXTREMELY hazardous. I have an AWD car and nearly hit the dumpster driving out

- The fridge didn’t have any side trays

- The bedroom window is missing a screen

- The steam room door doesn’t close

- no instructions how the steam room or the sauna work

- the fountain was dirty, filled with dirt and spider webs, and it also DIDNT WORK

Not happy at all for the money they want. Alot of things don't work old and broken. Access to hot tub was dangerous and driveway as well. All garbage cans were full. Poor pre clean. Too bad could be a nice place needs a lot of work.

Some of the previous reviews were correct, a lot of things are worn down in the house. The rug is curling, which if you aren't paying attention, you could trip on. The seats at the dining table are completely worn down and you're basically sitting on the ring of wood that the seat cushion is placed on. A lot of the outside porch and patio lights don't work. The oven knob was on the ground when we arrived, so we couldn't get the oven to turn on till we could find the sweet spot of finding out where the knob was in the off position, and then from there getting the oven on, and to the desired temp for our food. But there was a lot of good at this place too, like the pool area and the game room. The living room was a nice size so we could all hang out together.

Very nice property for the entire family. Property management and its repair crew communicate and respond in timely manner before and during our stay. The condition of the house does have rooms for improvement. ( most of them are minor) Since I am only paying half (off season and week days !!!) of what this type of property would normally costs, I am not complaining !! We had a great time and memory of this trip!!

Above-average South Lake Tahoe house with a lovely indoor pool and well heated outdoor hot tub. The Sauna and Steam Room went unused during our stay, but nice to know it was there if we wanted it.

Beds and bedding felt clean and comfortable. There's a handy space heater that kept the great room warm during the chilly spring nights.
