We really enjoyed our stay at Peter and Desiree's place. The apartment suited us perfectly, and our host made sure we felt welcome--a bottle of wine, snacks, drinks, and other nice touches. Peter was friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to eat and what to see.
The only downside for us was the short time we had in Tahoe. Hopefully we will get to have a longer stay at Peter and Desiree's place next time!
This was such a perfect stay in S. Lake Tahoe! Peter and Desiree are great host filled with great suggestions, a great personality and very hospitable. The apartment is very clean,comfortable and close to all the great sites S. Lake Tahoe has to offer. I'm sure we will be back soon!!
Peter and Desiree were great hosts. The apartment was clean and beautiful and in a wonderful location. They had a wealth of knowledge about the area and great suggestions on where to visit in Tahoe!
My girlfriend and I had the greatest time at Lake Tahoe using Peter and Desiree's accommodations. They provided the best hospitality and were extremely friendly and welcoming throughout our entire stay. They provided great knowledge on the unit and things to do in the local area. The accommodations were extremely clean and ready for our arrival. There were welcoming gifts to include some wine, snacks, and coffee. The location was a perfect balance between the busy state line area and the quitter side of the lake. The unit is a very short walk to the beach and comes ready with beach chairs and towels. I would definitely stay here again when returning to Lake Tahoe!
Peter and Desiree were absolutely awesome! This was our first Air B&B experience so we were nervous, but they went above and beyond our expectations. They were extremely accommodating and gave us fabulous suggestions on things to do while we were in Tahoe. In fact, their guidance took us to some of the most memorable places of our trip!
On top of the great hosts, the apartment was perfect and served our every need. Cannot recommend them and their apartment enough!
We loved our stay in South Lake Tahoe! Peter always sent updates and kept us informed leading up to our visit and we are extremely grateful they allow pets. It was great to not have to worry about our furry friends while taking an adventure for ourselves. The apartment is in a great location near lots of activities and places to eat. We hope to return in the winter!

About the Host, Peter And Desiree
We are both proud Americans and have lived in the USA for a number of years. We recently made beautiful South Lake Tahoe our home.
Peter, a Dutchman, born in Germany and growing up in Rome, is a hotelier by profession. Desiree, German-Afrikaans, born/lived in Namibia, studied/worked in South Africa, is an educator, working in Sacramento and spending the weekends and school holidays in beautiful Tahoe.
We both like the simple life and the outdoors. We love to travel and explore (our families are still in Europe and Southern Africa). China, India and Sri Lanka are at the top of our future destinations to visit, since Desiree recently certified as a Tea Sommelier and visiting the tea plantations/estates is a passionate dream.
South Lake Tahoe is a mecca for the outdoor life. We have explored countless hiking trails. One cannot get enough of the tranquil beauty of the (ink blue) lake, forests, creeks and mountains. Summers are spent swimming, kayaking and jetskiing. This summer, stand-up paddling is at the top of our list. Winters, we snowshoe, hike, and/or take the gondola up Heavenly for the beautiful vistas. At night, we love to visit our favorite pub, or lounge at our favorite restaurant on the shore, enjoying the spectacular sunsets over the lake. Edgewood reastaurant is our particular favorite.
Come stay with us, let us pamper you and share with you magical South Lake Tahoe. We can help with hiking trails, beach options and many other activities on and around the lake, the ski slopes, and exciting casinos/shows. We are about 100 yards walking distance from the lake - ideal for a private and romantic beach picnic at sunset.
We hope that your stay with us feels like home away from home. Our goal is to offer you a warm, comfortable and carefree visit to our beautiful Tahoe. We look forward to your stay and being your hosts.
