About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

We invite you to Tahoe Sol - to experience our warm, spacious, family-friendly vacation home centrally located to the best of what Lake Tahoe has to offer - in any season, and for every kind of get-away! Minutes from the lake and the ski slopes, Tahoe Sol is a modern mountain home well suited to relaxing and entertaining - indoors and out!

The sandy beaches of Lake Tahoe are a mile away and the highly popular NorthStar Ski Resort is 10 minutes door to door. There are many wonderful hiking and biking opportunities nearby – several where you can embark from straight outside the property. Tahoe Sol is a great vacation home whether a reunion, a retreat with friends, or just a weekend respite for your family. For your next vacation – consider Tahoe Sol as the perfect place to soak up the sun, rejuvenate the spirit and to find peace and serenity from the stresses of daily life.

Tahoe Sol is situated in a quiet, highly regarded area of Kings Beach called Kingwood Estates.

Built in 2000, it is a nice blend of classic lodge cabin feel outside, yet filled with modern amenities and comforts inside.

Walk onto our front porch which overlooks a beautifully landscaped yard that backs up to open space and forest lands beyond. In the Fall, Spring and Summer this is an idyllic setting to both unwind and play. Kick back in a hammock placed amidst a semi-circle of aspen trees, imbibe a cool refreshing drink on the flagstone patio, gather around a fire and roast marshmallows with friends and family just under the forest canopy. Kids will enjoy stretching their imaginations out on the fort/play structure and exploring the surrounding woods and nearby seasonal creek. In the Winter, there is plenty of room for snow play, sledding and starting off on a snowshoe adventure right out the front steps!

Open the front door and you are in our foyer where you can kick off your boots and shoes, and hang your coats and snow gear and head up the staircase to the Great Room. There you will find a light, airy, spacious room with high ceilings and many windows overlooking the lawn and greenery of the forest. The Great Room includes a well-appointed gourmet kitchen with high-end stainless steel appliances and counter bar that is open to the dining and living areas. The living and dining areas are comfortable, inviting spaces with ample seating and decorated in timeless mission/arts and crafts style. There is seating for 8 at the dining table, 4 at the breakfast bar and an option to add a second dining table for up to 6 more people if needed. Off the Great Room living area is a deck with a gas grill where you can dine al fresco and unwind in a deluxe hot tub under beautiful starry skies.

Upstairs you will find two of the four bedrooms Tahoe Sol has to offer. The first is a luxurious master suite with a king bed and ensuite bath that includes a spa bathtub and separate steam shower. The other is a smaller room designed to be flexible for a wide range of needs. A queen-size Murphy wall bed turns this into a comfortable 4th bedroom. Alternatively we have used it as a nursery, an upstairs playroom for children– and for those who absolutely must bring their work with them – a great home office. A half-bath and full laundry off the kitchen completes the upstairs.

Downstairs off the foyer, you enter our family/media room – a great secondary space for kids and adults alike to play games, watch tv and just hang out. The sofa in this room converts to a queen-sized bed for additional sleeping options. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms. The first bedroom off the family room has a king size bed. The second bedroom is set up to accommodate two XL twin beds with twin trundles that can be set up in multiple configurations- from a generous king-size bed, to up to four separate twin beds. This second bedroom has a small private deck overlooking the lawn and forest. A full bathroom services the downstairs space.

There is good off-street parking – with two spaces inside the attached garage as well as 3-5 spaces on the driveway and adjacent gravel area. Tahoe Sol offers a bonus feature in the winter, providing a radiant heated driveway that minimizes ice and reduces the need for heavy snow shoveling!

Tahoe Sol is a great value for those who are seeking touches of luxury and comfort that you might find at a high-end resort. The décor is tasteful, soothing, with finishes to satisfy any discerning traveler seeking a sophisticated, yet comfortable respite. All sheets, towels and linens are hotel-quality with down or down alternative pillows and comforters. There are flat-screen TV’s with cable in the upstairs and downstairs living areas and master bedroom suite and free wi-fi internet throughout.

Tahoe Sol is set up to cater to families with young children. The home is generally childproof and relatively free of sharp edges and breakables. PacknPlays, baby gates, high chairs, toys for kids of all ages are available to our guests. No need to bring all that extra gear.

Whatever your needs may be, we aim to give you and yours a relaxing and memorable stay in this truly special home!

About Shar Etebar

Tahoe Sol is co-owned by two siblings – Shar and Kimia– along with their respective spouses. Shar and his wife Kim are professionals living in the Bay Area with two young sons. Shar is formerly executive director of SEEDS, a small nonprofit providing community-based conflict resolution and restorative justice programs and services in the East Bay and now works as a consultant. Kim works for Kaiser Permanente helping to design and develop Kaiser’s Internal Web Portal.

Kimia and her husband Matt divide their time between Las Vegas and San Diego and have twin toddlers – a boy and a girl. They are entrepreneurs/investors in various enterprises having recently opened up CRUST - a delectable pizzeria and wine bar in the San Diego area as well as maintaining active investments in gaming, film and theater production and real estate.

While they all enjoy divergent interest in hobbies, Lake Tahoe offers up something for everyone. Downhill skiing and water sports for Shar. Cross-country skiing and nature hikes for Kim. Sunny beaches, quality spas and restaurants for Kimia. Casinos and gaming opportunities nearby for Matt who has friends and colleagues in the industry.

The kids enjoy exploring the woods, hunting for bugs, watching out for bears and other wildlife, playing with the local neighborhood dogs, inventing new games, swimming at the lake, and just spending time with aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and family friends old and new!

Shar Etebar purchased this house in 2011

Why Shar Etebar chose Kings Beach

Drawing from their fond childhood memories, where Shar and Kimia’s family would go on annual snow trips to in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California, they have been renting vacation properties in North Lake Tahoe area during the winter sharing many wonderful experiences with friends and family for over 20 years.

When the opportunity arose to invest in a vacation property of their own, North Lake Tahoe was the obvious choice, not only for the plethora of ski resorts and winter snow activities so close by – but for everything the region has to offer in every season of the year.

North Lake Tahoe is a convenient drive from the Bay Area and an easy flight from Las Vegas or Southern California with Reno Airport only 40 minutes away. There is even great access by train or bus from nearby Truckee!

In the short time they have owned Tahoe Sol, they have already had many great new adventures and created terrific family memories – celebrating milestone birthdays, taking whitewater rafting trips on the Truckee River, playing bocce and enjoying local wines at a nearby tasting room – and spending many warm summer days and nights relaxing out on the patio or deck, in the hot tub or down at the beach!

What makes this house unique

After staying in many wonderful vacation rentals and researching many properties when we decided to invest in Lake Tahoe, we believe that Tahoe Sol's landscaped yard with lawn, patio and play structure is a relatively rare and wonderful feature - particularly in the Summer and Fall- that sets it apart from many properties in the area at that cost/value point. Great for small weddings, reunions, barbeques, etc. The heated driveway also has kept shoveling snow to a minimum in the winter :)

Great Tahoe Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Tahoe Sol and it was every bit as amazing as we remembered. We were 3 families, 6 adults, 5 kids and 3 dogs, there was plenty of room for all. The house is well stocked, especially for families - toys, games, books as well as everything you need for the beach from towels and chairs to rafts. The yard is great for those days you can't motivate to get to the beach and for evening BBQs. Shar is a very attentive host easy to work with and super accommodating. Can't wait to go back again. Keep Tahoe Blue!

Clean, well-stocked, accommodating, great for little kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3-family reunion here, and it was perfect for us. 6 adults, 9 kids under the age of 7. The kids were thrilled with the playground and the bins of toys available for us to play with, and the adults were thrilled with the well-stocked kitchen, the roomy feel of the main area, the hot tub, and the sauna in the master bath.

We had to move our dates, and Shar was completely accommodating, and let us check out later than anticipated, because let's face it, 9 kids create a lot of inertia.

We loved how close it was to beaches, frisbee golf, the forest outside to explore, and the last bit of sledding. We had a great time!

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at dozens of Tahoe rentals, and Tahoe Sol is in my top 3. It is perfectly situated, just up the hill from Kings Beach and 15 minutes down the hill from the slopes at Northstar. The home is clean, large, and very well-appointed. There are tons of toys and supplies for kids, as well as adults. The place is very organized and run very well. I really can't think of a single thing they could improve. We will be back!
