About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Start the day with a round of golf, walk down to Lake Tahoe for a swim, hike Tahoe National Forrest, drive up to Northstar or over to Diamond Peak. The casinos are a 5 minute drive away also. You can access nearly everything Tahoe has to offer from this house. It's walking distance from the huge North Shore Safeway (with Starbucks inside), award winning restaurants like Lanza's, Jason's, Hiro Sushi and the Log Cabin. Walk to the Brockway movie theater, miniature golf or sit out on the deck and enjoy the redwoods.

Kings Beach was named after card shark Joe King, who won the town site from George Whittell nearly a century before poker had a cult cable-TV following. Set against a vibrant blend of colors, flavors and textures, Kings Beach is kick back. In fact, this stretch of North Lake Tahoe wrote the book on mellow kick back.

It is rightfully known as the north shore's banana belt, as it stands in

the sun’s path from early morning into the p.m. As if basking under the sun's glow were not enough, this mountain/beach town throws a sandy welcome to all with a signature downtown public beach.

Hip shops, restaurants, side-street vendors – all true to their cultural

heritage – and down-home Lake Tahoe lodging plus a host of human characters give the town an indescribable savoir cool. Hwy. 267 spills into Hwy. 28 here, too, presenting skiers/boarders insta-options to the North Shore’s Big 12 Lake Tahoe ski resorts.

Keywords: Location is everything! This house has it all: Five min walk to the Lake, on the 8th fairway of Old Brockway Golfcourse, Pro Shop and Blue Onion Restaurant, short drive to Northstar and Diamond Peak., 15 mins from Squaw Valley. Perfect house for your vacation, including huge loft for lounging, sleeping or movies, rustic dining table and benches to seat 12, inviting fully equiped kitchen opening on to large deck, BBQ and chairs, yard leading to 'rough' off 8th fairway, beautiful forested view with Lake access. Quite simply a comfortable and cozy stay in the woods with shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing right out side your door.

About Nathaniel Mills

Hi, I'm Nate! I manage the rental of our house for my mother - the owner. I can help you with any questions you may have and I can make suggestions to make your vacation easier and more comfortable. For example: I can tell you about the 'special treatment' you will get from the kayak rental folks when you mention that you know Sodapop. They know Sodapop, my mother's Jack Russell Terrier, and look forward to seeing her during the summer. I hope to talk to you soon. Thanks and have fun.

Nathaniel Mills purchased this house in 2011

Why Nathaniel Mills chose Lake Tahoe North Shore

We chose this house because of the location. It is simply walking distance to EVERYTHING. In addition, the house has been completely re-done so everything works.

nice stay for one family

  • 3 of 5

pro: good location 5 min walk to lake and Safeway. new kitchen and nice dining table. very nice and quiet backyard, nice to stay outside. Very quick response by owner. Wifi is strong. Nice neighborhood. Perfect for small family and relaxing stay.

cons: hot tub water shows green and feels slimy, when just opened my kids saw a swimming frog inside! there is quite a few discrepancy between the description/check in doc with the facts: there are only 2 bikes under the deck and it has spider web around them, we don't dare to go to retrieve them; kayak is dirty and not inviting to be used (and only one, we found this out only by asking by email); no DVD player but they do have Roku box. The bedding are not really enough for 8 people to use (there is enough space but not enough beddings). One of the bedrooms are really small, if sleep 2 people that leaves no space to move/walk in the room. Another bigger bedroom - the bed make big creaking noise for any move. I am surprised none of above were reported by previous reviews. I really hope that above situation will be changed soon.

Overall its a pleasant stay for us.

Great Location, Condition and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights in early August.

This property is located in a great location just a few minutes walk from the beach yet far enough from the main road to still enjoy the outdoors. It is near the Safeway on the main strip and sits right on the golf course. Can't emphasize how convenient this was!

Property is clean, updated and has plenty of amenities in the kitchen for cooking meals along with a charcoal grill outside. Plenty of seating as well. There is actually a larger tv that has been upgraded than is shown in the pictures. No cable tv but we brought our own streaming device and wireless was fine throughout the stay.

Enjoyed the large deck and hot tub. While there are bikes and a kayak shown in the pictures for use, it appeared they had not been used for some time and were quite dirty. Bike tires were flat and did not see a pump (though I did not look very hard as they were underneath the deck).

Plenty of cooking utensils/pots/pans in the kitchen along with upgraded appliances. Pantry well stocked with condiments/spices/etc as prior renters typically leave whatever they purchase behind for future use.

Washer/dryer available as well. Would definitely stay again.

Overall, a great experience!

Stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for Christmas Eve and Christmas night with our two adult children. The home was as good as it gets, as each kid got their own room and the common areas were perfect for four adults. The pictures on VRBO are accurate, but they don't capture how homey the home feels. The kitchen is very well equipped and also a very social place. The shower is large and hot. The hot tub provided great relaxation after each of two days of skiing. We wish we could have stayed longer. communication with the owner was fast, clear, accurate and informative. if you want to feel at home and have everything you need for a great vacation, stay here! We hope to next time we are in the area.

Great house for family vacation at Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

The house worked very well for our family with three young kids. Nice big dining area and kitchen allowed for good meals, and the back yard was a hit with the kids. Good location. House was clean and well-maintained, and the owner was very responsive.
