We are always upgrading this property and just bought the lot next door to ensure that the fantastic peaceful views and feeling of the back deck is permanently protected.

Great Kingswood location between Northstar Ski resort and the Lake! Easy and short jaunt to the lake and the fun restaurants in Kings Beach, Tahoe Vista, Crystal Bay and Tahoe City. Truckee is less than 20 minutes away and has many excellent restaurants, great shopping and some interesting music venues! Lots of music at the Lake in the summer, year round at the Crystal Bay Club, 5 minutes away and in Truckee at Moody's Bistro on weekends, 18 minutes away. All season Ping Pong table provided for guests enjoyment. DVD, reading and CD library.
Dramatic river rock fireplace in great room. Master suite has fireplace, pine four poster bed and spacious bath/Jacuzzi Very private property backing to green belts and National Forest. High quality throughout. Tastefully decorated, lovely outdoor space and gourmet kitchen. Full sound system upstairs, whole house secure wireless internet.
We love the house in both summer and winter. Originally thought it would be more popular in the winter but have found that guests enjoy both seasons as well as the more quiet times with fall as a special treat.
This home has it all and is perfect for a family reunion, special time with friends and family. The kitchen/family room area is a natural gathering place for meals, to watch a movie, play games, listen to music and relax by the large fireplace. Many nooks and crannies throughout the property where you can curl up with a book (lots of books as well) In the summer enjoy the lawn on the side of the house where you can set up your chairs for afternoon cocktails or go to watch the kids play. Lot is mostly level with just enough of a grade for sledding. The double lot and National forest surrounding the house gives the property privacy and a real sense of being in the mountains and at the edge of it all.

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: Life for the past couple of years has been an adventure. Travel has always been something that I loved and I had always wanted to live in a Latin culture.
Went to Argentina in 2009 to help a friend teach Lindy Hop and felt drawn to the country, the open social people, the lifestyle and tango. As I never could go to sleep early, am hyper social and like fun clothes (and spoke Spanish) it seemed like a natural fit and as my business was portable, off to Buenos Aires I moved. (I have a Vonage phone with a San Francisco number so you can call me wherever I am and that together with my on the ground local support in Tahoe keeps things running smoothly for the vacation rentals).
In Argentina I enjoy the cafes, tango dancing, putting on ridiculous outfits to go out dancing, live in a high rise which is quite different from the small sheep ranch in Sonoma County that I lived on for 25 years while raising my children, tango dance almost every night, do not sleep enough and work a lot from my 29th floor perch.
So far so good, the tango is improving to a passable point and the Spanish is much better, I have met some wonderful interesting people and love the travel that is possible.
In addition to this Tahoe house I also have a bit smaller charming cottage as well as 3 San Francisco flats well located atop Nob Hill, both web sites are linked to this page.
Over the last 18 years that I have been renting property in Tahoe many guests have become friends and enjoy returning to the property every year and one young man chose to spend his honeymoon at the house as he had such fond memories from his childhood. I love to share the warmth that this house has and know that others are enjoying it as I do when in California.
Why the Owner Chose Tahoe Vista: Welcome to my vacation rental web site. Tahoe is a special place, even at the highest season one can go just a little off the beaten path and discover solitude which is one of the many things that attracted me to building a house in the North Shore area. I like properties that, while not far from restaurants and other people have a feeling of privacy and particularly from the sides and back deck, the peace is lovely.
One of the aspects that I liked best when I bought the lot to build this house was the wonderful forest behind the house. Directly behind is Tahoe National Forest land, to the side is a lot I purchased to ensure privacy and next to that, open space in our development. Behind the National Park land is the North Tahoe Regional Park with bike paths, tennis courts, golf frisbee, running trails a FANTASTIC new children's playground, cross country skiing and on and on (baseball, soccer, basketball courts). The park is a 10 minute walk or quick bike ride so you can not hear any noise from the park but it is right nearby which is great.
