The Space

Pamper yourself with a stay at our 'Private Beach Studio.'

15% off last minute bookings. If you're looking last minute - we offer last-minute booking deals (15% off the nightly rate if booked within 72 hours of arrival - please contact me for a special quote; not combinable with other specials).

Pre-book your ski lease for 2015 season:
$1675/mo plus once monthly professional cleaning required for $75/mo (including linen/towel wash). Minimum 4 months: January through April. $1500 security deposit (ie. an extra $1200 above Airbnb's usual $300 deposit will be due to owner along with the signed lease). Maximum occupancy for ski lease: 2 adults (or 2 adults and 2 children). Short term guests ok with prior owner approval.


We have the best location in the Lake Tahoe Basin: walk to the Lake, the best North Shore restaurants, the 24 hour supermarket, recreation, and more. This modern and romantic mountain retreat is the perfect size for a couple or a small family or group of friends.

The compact studio is about 450 square feet, 40 square meters, and comfortably sleeps 2 adults and 2 children (we will accept up to 4 total occupants of any age if you don't mind using the bunk beds and sharing the queen bed). The studio offers one queen murphy (fold-up) bed and one twin bunk bed in a sunny nook which can be used for additional guests or children. The property has a spectacular lake view, but the unit has a "garden" view of the well-manicured pool and spa area in the rear of the property. Our cozy studio is only 7 miles (11 minutes) to Northstar. We're also less than a 25 minute drive to many other North Shore resorts: from world-class destinations like Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows, to affordable locals' favorites like Mount Rose, Diamond Peak, or Homewood.

Any time of year, you can take a walk on the beach at sunset. Or take a short easy drive to North shore casinos, amazing restaurants, and several of kings beach's many parks and recreation areas. Walk across the street to 'back-door' access to a network of hiking or cross-country-skiing trails. Enjoy a massage or facial at a quaint, locally-owned North Lake Massage and Skin Care spa less than a mile away. Unwind in our community hot tub, under the stars, just a short dash out the back door.

Monthly bookings available. The monthly rates vary by season and the rate shown is the off-season monthly rate. Rates can be substantially higher during the peak summer months - please enter your dates for an instant quote or inquire with the owner for more details. Any stays longer than 28 days require an additional damage deposit (above the $300 standard deposit held by Airbnb) and are subject to Airbnb's "long-term" cancellation policy -- Airbnb will provide the details of this policy upon booking.

For all bookings, signing a rental agreement is required prior to receiving access instructions (see house rules).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I was not able to stay with the booking this time, but I heard a positive review from my friends that went. They said it was really beautiful and a nice condo. My communications I had with Sanna were very prompt and professional, thanks Sanna for sharing your Tahoe lakefront studio!

  • Everything was perfect. The studio is beautiful and clean and right by the lake. I would definitely recommend it!

  • Lovely little spot! Warm cozy comfortable and very homely. Loved it.

  • We had an excellent weekend in Tahoe staying at Sanna's studio! The place was cute, clean and close to the lake, which made for beautiful sunset photos and a comfortable home base.

    The place was in walking distance to Safeway/Starbucks which made morning coffee runs and quick trips for groceries super easy.

    My travel companions could not stop talking about how much they enjoyed the shower, which may not seem important but when you're away from home a good shower can mean the difference between a good or great day!

    The place was everything Sanna said it would be; we would love to go back during the summer since it is so close to the water. The pool was closed as we were there in the winter, but the building hot tub was open :) Highly recommend Sanna's place!

  • The studio was lovely on the inside. It felt very spacious based on the design and was perfect for a weekend away. The complex's private lake cove was delightful.

  • Amazing renovated apartment! It looks exactly like in pictures, we had a great time at Sanna's place.

    I warmly recommend!

  • This apartment totally rocks! It was so cosy and was equipped with modern technologies too! It is located near to the lake as well as a grocery store. I love communicating with the Sanna. She replies fast and also provided me with a lot of information and answers to my queries. She even allow me to check in slightly earlier due to the awkward timing of my arrival. My friends and I totally enjoyed staying in this apartment. Love it to the max! If I'm going back to Lake Tahoe, I won't hesitate to stay here again.

  • Such a cute little studio with tons of fun features to keep us entertained!

    February 2014
  • Sanna's cozy little spot is wonderful! You will have everything you need at your fingertips when staying home. If you need provisions or fun or stunning views you simply need to step outside - everything is close and convenient to the home. Sanna is also a wonderful and responsive host... She was sweet and attentive to our needs. I honestly plan to visit again

  • Fantastic little spot - so convenient for skiing any North Lake Tahoe resort in the winter. My husband and I were here just before Xmas, and were very pleased with the studio, the location (got some great panoramic shots of the lake out on the pier!) and how well equipped and cozy the studio was. Would definitely stay again!

I am a biologist working for Stanford University. My family has had a cabin in the Lake Tahoe Basin for decades and I believe there's no better vacation spot in the world. I take care to apply eco-friendly principles and high-quality products and materials in the rental spaces I offer.
