By April 28, 2015March 16th, 2016Blog, Video

The Tahoe Keys is a 740-acre private marina community laced with eleven miles of inland waterways located at the southern tip of Lake Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe, California. Most of the 1529 members who own homes, townhouses or vacant lots have a private boat dock and are located on numerous lagoons, canals or the Tahoe Keys Marina with its boat launching ramps. Waterfront living provides direct access to Lake Tahoe and its many water sports.


The mission of the Association is to protect and enhance member’s property values.

Tahoe Keys Property Owners’ Association is a common interest development located in South Lake Tahoe, California, which consists of 1,529 member units consisting of about 1,195 single-family homes and 335 townhomes plus certain common area properties. The Tahoe Keys is primarily a boating community consisting of owner-occupied properties, second homes and properties that are vacation rentals. The Association was organized as a mutual-benefit nonprofit corporation 501(c)(4) in November 1963 to provide for management, maintenance and architectural control of the individual units and the common area property.

The Association manages the common areas that include beaches, swimming pools, tennis courts and neighborhood parks. The Association is responsible for maintaining the 11 miles of lagoons, providing water, security patrols and enforcing the CC&Rs.

The Association is governed by a member elected volunteer Board of Directors who serve a two-year term with elections held every year in August; meetings are held bi-monthly except in summer, meeting monthly June to October. The Association Board of Directors, a community-wide volunteer position, consisting of seven property owners, is responsible for setting operating policies, managerial overview, development and execution of annual budgets and capital reserves, enforcing provisions of the governing documents, which include covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs), bylaws, and rules and regulations, and providing financial oversight. Major decisions, as determined by the CC&Rs, are referred to the Association owners as a whole.

The Association has a full time staff of 20 employees and staff increased to 55 during the summer season. The Association office is located at 356 Ala Wai Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe. The office is open Monday through Sunday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM . Association staff can be reached at (530) 542-6444.

TKPOA has been tasked with dredging the Tahoe Keys Channel that leads into Lake Tahoe so that boats can move in and out of the channel this summer. TPH was tasked with capturing some B Roll footage and an interview with RO Anderson Company to show the public the process of dredging and what they are doing.
