About Peter and Darla
This is Peter and Darla, owners and hosts of the Redwood House in Agate Bay. Our full time residence is in Auburn, CA. Peter's parents build a cabin in Agate Bay in 1970, and he's been coming to Agate Bay now for 45 years. We purchased the Redwood House in 2001, and over the years have been systematically remodeling the home. We are very experienced and professional in our offerings of top notch vacation rental homes. In addition to the Redwood House, we own and personally manage our oceanfront home "Hale Honu" and the Hawaiian Oasis Bed and Breakfast Estate in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii. We also owned and offered 2 oceanfront condos in Kona from 2002 to 2014, averaging close to 200 vacation rental bookings per year overall. We are both physicians, in private specialty practices in Roseville, Folsom and Yuba City. We're active gardeners and travelers. Between us we have four children, making their way in the world as a fine arts painter, film maker, fashion designer and early childhood educator. Our extended family honors Tahoe as the place we converge at least yearly, and our time in Agate Bay has been one the pillars of love in our big family. Our relationship with Tahoe and this home is evident when you stay with us!

Why Peter and Darla chose Carnelian Bay
Our family has had a home in Agate Bay for 45 years. Peter's brother also owns a home in Agate Bay. The two brothers 'came of age' during summers in Agate Bay. All 11 grandchildren of Peter's parents have their earliest memories being in Tahoe. There's no other place we treasure more than this!
What makes this Cabin unique
Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Being within the forest. Stars at night that children living in the city or burbs never knew existed. The purest water you could ever swim in. One of the most beautiful places in the world, any time of the year.

House was big enough for 4 families, that included 8 kids. Plenty of room for all! With all of the people, we wish the downstairs bathroom shower worked but no worries, we all took turns. Great location too.
Tons of space for families
We rented this place with 9 in total. 2 families, 4 adults, 5 children.
We loved that the kids had a HUGE bunk room with TV, Foozball, and a separate bathroom.
Also loved there were two living rooms and eating areas. While we all hung out together it was great that the kids could be in one part of the house and the adults in another.
2 fireplaces were great to have.
The hosts were amazing and communicative. Checked in with us during stay to make sure things were going well (they were),.
Looking forward to renting again!
Everything we wanted
We had a fantastic time at this house. It's super close to the lake and Tahoe City Marina where we rented a speedboat for the day. It had lots of space for hanging out and relaxing, and the kitchen was well stocked for group meals. The hot tub was big and well maintained. I would definitely come back for a future weekend!
Good house for multiple families and great location
We enjoyed out stay at this house. We had 7 older teens who enjoyed having their separate space in the bunk room section. The hot tub was large and clean and enjoyed by all. The location is walking distance to Patton Beach/Waterman's Landing which has a rocky beach but they are flat rocks and the teens liked the floating raft to swim out to. Also many sandy beaches not far away. Great place to have coffee and scones in the morning at the coffee shop there. The adults enjoyed walking to Gar Woods for sunset cocktails. The teens enjoyed walking to the miniature golf place. The house is an older house that could use some tlc. If you are looking for a more modern house or community with pool/amenities this is not the house for you. We have been renting in Tahoe for many years and enjoy the older houses with a little more character for the old Tahoe feel.
This was a great place for our large family to stay. We had 13 adults and 2 small children. Nice big table to all gather and enough silverware for everyone. The owners were very helpful.
Perfect large family retreat in Tahoe
Perfect large home for a family get together. We had 6 adults and 5 kids (ages 1year to 9 years). The house was so well equipped with everything you’d need for a fun filled time in Tahoe. Plenty of towels, dishes, and extras in the kitchen to make our stay so easy. Beach chairs and umbrellas were so wonderful too! We also needed to battery charger in the garage to jump one of our cars. Such luck having such a handy tool! Thanks again Peter & Darla for providing our family with such a wonderful place to stay
