Totally admit that I was a little nervous about a lake side vacation, but the gf was adamant I would like it and she was right! There is so much to do around Lake Tahoe in the summer that one week does not do the area justice at all. Our two story home from home at Tahoe Vista (adjacent to Kings Beach) was the ideal place for our annual vacation. This vacation rental has everything you could need and more. The usual things like a fully equipment kitchen, internet, huge satellite TV but also extra's that added to the feel of the place was a huge comfy leather sofa, your own small garden with BBQ, great sky lights in the bedroom, stair case and even above the shower (natural light shower, go figure) all wrapped up in a wood cabin house.The owners, very friendly couple, live in the adjacent house and are available at the end of a phone, plus they have great tips for hikes, things to do, best places to eat etc. (they recommend Soule Domain, great restaurant). This is one of three rental properties they offer in the area.Another great plus, is that you are in walking distance of Safeways, the beach, the restaurants etc., if you do not fancy driving anywhere. While you are walking distance of these amenities, you are well away from the hustle and bustle of tourists flocking around the center of Kings Beach. What is more, the pricing of this rental are very reasonable for the area, especially if staying for a good period of time. Nothing that detracts from a 5 star rating here at all! Will admit we have a serious power shower at home and I often miss this when staying away from home in hotels, bed and breakfasts. The shower in the rental was totally fine just not a power shower....the skylight shower though had me wondering how much it was add to the value of my home. I was pleased just to have a washer and dryer for us to use, but should point out that this is located in the bedroom - while this may sound strange we did not find this a problem at all, just means that you avoid trying to wash clothes early in morning or late at night. It was great to bring home clean clothes for once as opposed to cases full of laundry. As you can see we were struggling to find anything much negative to say to balance our positive view of this rental and vacation. Like any good vacation, this one has us wondering when we will get the chance to go back and visit the places we missed on this last trip. If we do go back, hopefully we will be able to rent the same place again!
