Overview

About the property

Exquisite custom 5bd, 3 ba home! Hot Tub, privacy, views, backs to forest

Enjoy our beautiful, newly remodeled luxury home 3 miles away from Heavenly Valley. Located off Upper Kingsbury, our home backs up to the lush woods of the Toiyabe National Forest and Kingsbury North Trailhead. Breathtaking mountain and woodland views out all of our 41 windows and glass doors.

HUGE magestic dining table easily seats 12 people. 2 fully equipped kitchens (one on each level). Only 5 steps for Grandpa or Grandma to enter from the garage - and then no steps at all on main level (3bds, 2 baths, kitchen, laundry, dining, sitting room, living room - deck, hot tub). Downstairs are an additional 2 bedrms, bathroom, theater, kitchen, ping pong table, mud room, and 2nd laundry room.

For prices (from $600 to $900/night season and holiday dependent) and minimum stay (from 2 to 5 nights) scroll down all the way- past the reviews from people who have enjoyed our home. This home is PERFECT for multi-generational family vacation.

Out-the-door access to the Tahoe Rim Trail and the Stage Coach lift to Heavenly’s Nevada side only three miles away makes our home an excellent choice for summer or winter fun, whether it is hiking, mountain biking, off-roading, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, skiing, or boarding.

Our home is beautifully appointed and we take great pride in creating a warm, comfortable environment for discriminating guests, with thoughtful details such as beautiful hardwood floors, Tibetan area rugs, granite and stone counter tops, and art work throughout. Ours is most definitely not your typical rental home and we would love to think of you as a return guest who treats our place with the utmost care.

Beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished in “sophisticated rustic” style, our home is 3200 sq. ft. and sleeps 10 comfortably. We have a heated 2-car garage with additional parking in the driveway and street. Our place has 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a sitting room, 2 fully stocked kitchens, 3 bathrooms, 2 laundry rooms, a mud room, a dining room with a spectacular chandelier and beautiful hardwood table for 12, a central fireplace, a game room with Ping-Pong table, a 70-in. theater-style HD TV with DVD and THX surround sound, and a deck with hot tub, gas grill, patio furniture, and picturesque surroundings.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, in-suite bathroom and a 46-inflat screen HD TV with DVD. Three other bedrooms have queen size beds. The fifth bedroom has two twin beds (also large flat screen at the end of the bed!) . There is wireless, high-speed internet throughout, with the internet connected to the 70-inch and 46-inch TVs for streaming video downloads. The built-in sound system has an iPod dock and provides multiple zones, including the back deck, that allows different entertainment for different rooms.

The wooded lot has 10 ft. boulders and nearly fifty trees, nicely spaced to provide both privacy and beautiful views.

We are in an ideal location. Looking out our back windows, you would think you are in the middle of the wilderness. We are connected to miles of hiking trails with spectacular, panoramic views of the mountains and Lake Tahoe. Yet you have all the modern appliances and conveniences expected by discriminating guests and you are only 3 miles from the ski slopes and 5 miles from the casinos, night clubs, theaters, concerts, restaurants, stores, and beaches of South Lake Tahoe. Beach communities surround Lake Tahoe on both the Nevada and California sides. Nevada’s capital of Carson City is only 30 miles away and the international airport, hotels and casinos of Reno are only 60 miles away.

About Shari Malone and Bob Kozma

We are Bob and Shari, a young retired couple who live in San Francisco. We are both well-educated and were accomplished professionals in our careers. We are international travelers who enjoy the world's premier cities and cultural sites, as well as multi-sport experiences in mountains, forests, and deserts. So we are equally comfortable in a tuxedo and gown as jeans and hiking boots. The Tahoe property is our second home and we would love to share it with you.

Shari Malone and Bob Kozma purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Shari Malone and Bob Kozma chose Upper Kingsbury

Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains are among the gems of the world, offering beautiful vistas and challenging physical experiences. We love being 3 miles from the ski slopes and walking out our back door to the Tahoe Rim Trail and endless forest. Shari particularly loves waking up to the magnificent beauty out our 5 windows in the master bedroom. We also love the tranquility and privacy.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

After a challenging day of skiing through the trees off of Heavenly's slopes, we love sitting on our deck or steeping in our hot tub while sipping wine and watching the sun set behind the wooded mountain in our back yard. We think you will, too. In warmer months, we love our morning aerobic challenge of hiking to the top of the mountain in our back yard and returning for breakfast within an hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The quality, appointments, detail, location, attention - was all fabulous.

They are fussy who stays at their home, and I don't blame them. Worth the extra effort - Our family has never found a better VRBO.



Wonderful for family gathering. Walk out the back door and you are on wilderness trails.

New Years 2016 Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

So, I am back on VRBO to find a next destination for this coming Xmas & NY eve getaway and realized I had not reviewed this incredible property that was shared with us last year(my apologies to Shari & Bob). First off I'd like to mention that Shari and Bob are amazing homeowners who have put so much love, attention and detail into everything they had put into their vacation home. Everything from large dining room table, living room and bedroom was very comfortable. in addition there is basically a second home w/ full kithcen downstairs with playroom that was very convenient. Outdoor Hot tub & Grill perfect compliment to our getaway. Very well maintained and cared for! Close enough for getting into town and anywhere else you would like to go.

Photos do no justice to the beauty of the home and where it sits up on the mountain with incredible views in all directions. I would 100% stay at this property again, wish we were going back to Tahoe again so I could.

A big Thank you to Shari & Bob!!!!

Wonderful home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is not your typical vacation rental. It's apparent that the owners love and use this home and because of this it's very well stocked and extremely comfortable. The location can't be beat, right at the end of the neighborhood and close to the best hiking trails! It was so quiet and beautiful, we wished we could have stayed longer. Everything works as it should, great hot tub on the back patio, nice TV's, well stocked kitchen, comfy chairs, beds and sofas, high end linens, etc. We would definitely come back!

Family destination Christmas 2015

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to embark upon our first destination Christmas in 2015. I began searching for our home away from home in March of 2015 and was so very pleased to find this beautiful home in Lake Tahoe. To say the least it was a very magical Christmas with the beauty of the home, the wonderful snow and being with Family. I would highly recommend this property to anyone searching. The owners were a joy to work with and I can not express how beautiful and comfortable it was to be there for 5 days and nights.

Our family just loved this spacious and well appointed home for our annual gathering!!

The wonderful hiking trails just out the front door, the abundant natural light, ping pong area, open deck and hot tub, well appointed kitchen areas and convenient access to downtown were all there.

Don't miss the evening outdoor Shakespearean plays at Sand Harbor!!! Best Ever!!!

Absolutely magical luxury home in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than the photos and descriptions. It is elegant and comfortable and a delight to the senses. The furniture is comfortable and cozy and everything is well equipped. The theater is excellent and the beds are super duper comfy. The large dining table invites wonderful family time and the views are breath taking. Wonderful hiking and sledding just a few steps from the property. The owners were incredible to work with--kind and conscientious and sincere in wanting you to have a lovely retreat in their home.
