Tahoe Keys – South Tahoe Neighborhood

Neighborhood Profile- Tahoe Keys
Tahoe Keys is a neighborhood unlike any other in the entire Tahoe Basin.  Centrally located in South Shore, you enter Tahoe Keys via Tahoe Keys Blvd or 15th street off Hwy 89.  This is a private marina neighborhood at the water’s edge made up of higher end homes and condos, most with lake access.  These properties sit on 740 acres with 11 miles of inland waterways, allowing for waterfront homes with boat docks out the back and breathtaking views of mountains and Lake Tahoe.

The amenities that Tahoe Keys offers include private security, both an indoor and outdoor pool, tennis and basketball courts, a clubhouse, a playground facility, volleyball courts and a private beach and pier.  Also located within this area is a public boat launch with shops, the Fresh Ketch Restaurant and a small commercial facility housing a gym, yoga studio and professional offices.

The Tahoe Keys was developed in the late 1960’s with most homes being built from the 1970s to today, and not many vacant buildable lots remain within the development.  The average size home is 2500 sqft, with a small lot and water access.  Towards the entrance on Tahoe Keys Blvd you’ll find the different condos – each with its own homeowners association, as well as the larger Tahoe Keys Homeowners Association which also covers the houses.

Life in the Tahoe Keys allows a person a laid back pace with easy access to Lake Tahoe and the surrounding amenities available in the City of South Lake Tahoe.
