About Derek Nelson & Fiona Doyle
We are a family of four who live in the Bay Area. We absolutely love Tahoe and the A-Plus A-Frame is our happy place. We are looking to fill it with many years of memories and we hope you help us along the way. We bought the house in 2016 and spent months renovating it. We tried working with a local property management company at first, but were unhappy with the service provided to our guests and have decided to do much of it ourselves instead so that we can better control quality. We were new to VRBO in July 2017 and are so happy we made the switch. Both of us work in sales but we got to California through different routes. One born and raised in Oklahoma, graduating from the University of Oklahoma, following jobs from Chicago to south Florida and finally to the Bay Area for the last 13 years. The other, from Connecticut and a graduate of Hobart & William Smith Colleges and a Masters from Boston College with dreams of coming out West to San Francisco where she's been for the last 17 years. We have a nine year old son who absolutely loves spending time in Tahoe and we welcomed our second son in September 2017 (he's already a big fan!). We love family, friends, the great outdoors, sports (some of us more than others), travel, funny sitcoms, good or deliciously bad food and spending quality time in Tahoe.
Derek Nelson & Fiona Doyle purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Derek Nelson & Fiona Doyle chose Kingswood Estates
We have both been in love with North Lake Tahoe since the first time we saw it. Avid skiers and outdoor enthusiasts, we found ourselves traveling to Tahoe several times per year. We finally decided we wanted to make it more permanent and fulfilled our dreams of owning a vacation property in 2016.
What makes this Cabin unique
We chose this particular property because we fell in love with the classic A-frame style and believed the location to be ideal for all seasons....close to the beach in summer and the slopes in winter!

2nd stay; still impressed
We love the A+Frame cabin and it has become our go-to place to stay.
We are honored to have so many repeat visitors. Thank you so much for choosing to spend your vacation at the A+ A-frame! We look forward to hosting you again in the future!
This is a beautiful home. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub after a day on the slopes! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make meals and enjoy cocktails. We were a group of 5 adults and had plenty of room. Very much appreciated staying in this home for our ski vacation.
Checks all the boxes
Stayed at many places in Tahoe and all have their positives, but this one stands out. Cheers for offering such a great spot for enjoying North Lake.
Fabulous property in Tahoe Vista!
The house is well equipped, cozy, spacious and in the perfect location for our winter ski holiday. We enjoyed every single moment in and around the lovely property. The hot tub was a big plus! The comunication with the owners was excellent. Many thanks
Perfect family cabin on the North Shore
Our group of 6 (5 adults, 1 toddler) called the A+ A-frame home for Thanksgiving week and didn't want to return home! Derek provided lots of helpful area info prior to our arrival and check-in was super simple with the keyless entry app. The cabin had everything we needed to cook all our meals at home and lots of space to relax (I never wanted to get off the couch). Huge Safeway just minutes away for all your shopping needs. There's a really breathtaking lake view at the end of the street that we walked to everyday. My toddler LOVED all the books/toys available in the cabin (and I loved not having to bring any of that stuff from home!). Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Great Summertime Getaway
This was our second visit and first in the summertime. Great location, and the home is spacious, comfortable and very kid friendly. Also, the kitchen and outdoor grill are perfect for guests who like to cook.
Please note: 4WD/Traction may be necessary in the winter. Watch the weather reports carefully and plan accordingly.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with several trails leading in every direction. You can hike out the back or front door and we are only a 3 minute walk from breathtaking Lake Tahoe views. North Tahoe Regional Park is just a 20 minute hike from the house, where you will find plenty of additional hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country trails along with a disc golf course in summer. Kings Beach, which offers a public beach, is only 3 miles away. We are a short drive away from everything else North Lake Tahoe has to offer!
