Overview

Lower Kingsbury House Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 6 BR/4.5 BA Home Closely Located to All the Fun and Beauty of Tahoe!

Come and make our home yours for a time and you'll be 5 -10 minutes from Lake Tahoe's beautiful Heavenly Valley ski lifts or Gondola, Harrah's and Harvey's casinos and clubs, many delicious formal or casual restaurants and shopping of all kinds. You'll also be 3 minutes (1 mile) from Edgewood Golf Course where every July The American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament is held. This is the perfect home for family reunions, business retreats, special birthdays, or other groups wishing to rent and split the cost. We are happy to rent the home for one night special events like that special birthday, anniversary, graduation, work or club (Rotary for example) party. You can rent the main floor rooms with kitchen only or add a bedroom or two for overnight. Please contact us about pricing-which is different than for a traditional rental. There are lovely private sleeping quarters, large open gathering places and a great kitchen and yard. Our home is in a beautiful executive neighborhood with U.S. Forest Service land right across the street. Gorgeous views abound. Enjoy our home's amenities including 6 large beautifully appointed bedrooms; we also have a sofa bed in the living room, and two twin sized sleeper chairs. There are 4 1/2 bathrooms and two water heaters so you won't run out of hot water! Relax in our new 6 person outdoor hot tub after a day of skiing under the beautiful star filled night sky!! Watch movies in our home movie theatre with seating for eight+, play Wii, Guitar Hero, or Play Station 3 games. The Master Bedroom boasts a lovely view with a peek of Lake Tahoe; it has a large Whirlpool tub, a sauna shower, and a fireplace, it's luxurious! The large kitchen has all top quality appliances and equipment, plus all eating and cooking dishes and utensils are ready for your use. Large living area with room for games or just chillin' after a day of skiing, hiking or boating with a wood burning fireplace (wood included) for cold winter nights. Come and enjoy!

About Lisa Brockett

Lisa grew up in the Palo Alto/Los Altos part of the Bay Area and spent time here at Lake Tahoe snow skiing and dreamed of living here one day. Jim grew up in Colorado near Denver and spent a lot of time skiing and Jeeping in the Rocky Mountains surrounding there. Once married with kids they spent time up at Tahoe together skiing and enjoying all that Tahoe has to offer. The dream to live here permanently grew and eventually a permanent move was made and we made home Lake Tahoe.

Lisa Brockett purchased this house in 2000

Why Lisa Brockett chose Tahoe Village

This home is located in what we think is the ideal spot. It is only 1 mile from the new Hard Rock Hotel as well as Harvey's, Harrah's and Mont Bleu. It is also literally 5 to 7 minutes from the Boulder chair lift at Heavenly Valley on the Nevada side. The new Gondola is 5 minutes from home along with beautiful Edgewood Golf Course. There are many other golf courses nearby too, even a great 9 hole public course we frequent called Bijou. Our house is right across from U.S. Forest Service land and a hiking and mountian biking trail that goes all the way to and past the Gondola is there. Lake Tahoe and the beaches are 1 mile from us as the crow flies, 5 minutes by car to Nevada Beach, 7 minutes to Round Hill Pines Beach, 9 minutes to Zephyr Cove. These beaches offer boat, jet ski and paddle boat rentals. Add to all this that it is a nice large comfortable home and to us it is one of the best places on earth!

What makes this house unique

Along with everything already mentioned in 'Why This Property' we have Ladder Ball and Corn Hole games for guest use as well as a basketball hoop and basketball. We also have croquet and a horseshoe pit ready for your use, a chess table set up, as well as a large collection of games, puzzles, cards, and art supplies. Within minutes you can be at the beach, on a ski lift, at one of the casinos, or one of Harrah's/Harvey's great outdoor summer concerts with groups like Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Toby Keith, Nora Jones or The Beach Boys. Edgewood Golf Course is less than a mile from our house and every July the Celebrity Golf Tournament arrives which is great fun and an opportunity to see many of your favorite athletes and celebrities. To sum it up, we live in what we think is the perfect place-beautiful and peaceful on one hand with any number of great fun things to do at a moments notice only minutes away. You are bound to have boisterous fun or quiet relaxation, whichever suits you and yours on a given day.

One of the best vacation houses in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, including our visiting friends had a wonderful vacation at the house. Everything is exactly what the listing describes. My personal favorite is the large theatre room where we enjoyed the Euro Cup matches and movies. The house is super clean and organized and there are tons of fun activities you can do in the backyard. Lisa is very friendly and she met us right in front of the house when we arrived the first day. She even left a wine as gift on the kitchen table for us. It's the best vacation home I have ever been in Tahoe area. Two thumbs up!

Great backyard, great location, sleeps many

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 13 that all fit nicely in the large house. It was very clean and spacious. We loved the backyard and spent most of our time out there, which had a great Weber grill and a horse-shoe pit. It was a few minutes from the Casino area which was great as well. This is a great house for a large group that wants to settle around the Casino area in the summer. The owner, Lisa, was very nice and helpful with everything. It was a smooth transition in and out.

The only downside was that we could not get the Wii Rockband to work.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are pleased to know that you enjoyed the home and particularly the backyard! Thank you too for letting us know about the Wii Rock Band not working. We just replaced the electronic bar as we found out that had been broken, so we will take another look at the system and get that fixed! Please let us know during your stay if you find that something is not working properly as we are happy to come by and get it going or replace it if possible so you get the full use of everything the house has to offer. Hope to have you as guests again.

Awesome Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible home suitable for many different types of parties. There is literally nothing you need to bring when you stay here (besides clothes!). From utensils and linens to outdoor games, this place has all the top notch stuff. My crew was particularly happy with the theater room which was perfect for March Madness Basketball viewing! No need to waste vacation time traveling to the various activities either as the house is so close to everything. The only thing better than the house was dealing with the owners, Lisa and Jim. They made the process super easy and in my opinion are the gold standard for VRBO ownership. I pray that I have the opportunity to stay here again in the future!

Lake Tahoe abounds with things to see and do. Our Lower Kingsbury location is perfect for easy access to all that our lake has to offer. We personally recommend seeing Emerald Bay, riding up the Heavenly Gondola to see the lake, renting a kayak or paddle board to enjoy time on the lake, and visiting nearby Nevada Beach and Zephyr Cove. Don't forget your snowboard and skis in the winter time!
