About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beautiful, High End Vacation Home with hot tub, close to beach

We have truly enjoyed this home and hope you will enjoy it too! We have extensively remodeled the house to be a high end retreat that has many amenities for families and friends. Every time we are here we truly relax, recharge and breathe in the fresh air. There is nothing like Tahoe (especially the north shore) for an amazing family getaway!

Our vacation home is very family friendly and offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third room has twin bunk beds. There is plenty of storage and the kids room has a stack washer and dryer in the closet. There is also a queen size Aero bed that inflates in minutes and virtually by itself to add sleeping for two more, for a total of eight. The master bedroom is warm and inviting with yellow tones and comfortable Pottery Barn bedding. The adjoining bath has a soaking tub that is great after a long day of skiing! The middle bedroom has plenty of storage and French doors that open to the side yard. The kid’s room definitely has an X Games theme and has a fun collection of everything from skis to wakeboards adorning the walls. Kids and adults alike will love staying in this room!

The home features a kid’s rec room/den with a large sectional and flatscreen HDMI TV. This is the surf room and there are many games and books to enjoy during your stay. There is also a separate great room with a large dining table for eight along with 60" flat screen TV and overstuffed couches. Both the rec room and the great room have gas fireplaces. Perfect for the ambience of a fireplace without the work!

There is an Xbox 360 and Wii with several games and Netflix. There is also a CD/DVD player in the great room along with a collection of movies (mostly kids movies though). The home has basic cable and also has Wifi for use during your stay.

Outside, our home offers a large, open deck with a rattan sectional sofa, dining seating for six, a professional grade Charbroil Grill and gas firepit. Step down from the deck to a separate patio with an inviting hot tub and additional seating perfect for relaxing year round in the beautiful Tahoe forest.

The back yard is fully fenced with a large level lawn. The home is stocked with outside games such as volleyball, badminton and T ball for summer fun in the backyard. While you are very close to the hustle of downtown Kings Beach, the backyard is peaceful and protected giving you space and serenity for your vacation downtime. It is especially serene in the late afternoon sitting with a book on the deck and listening to the birds.

We absolutely love to cook and grill. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances including a Wolf range and is fully stocked with countless kitchen gadgets and amenities. As much as we love the kitchen, we find ourselves always grilling on the large open deck in the backyard. The professional grade Charbroil grill makes it a breeze to cook for a hungry crowd after a day of exploring Tahoe. An easy to use gas firepit is also a welcome touch and the kids love making S'mores and watching the fire after dark.

We are a ten minute walk from popular Kings Beach Main Beach and supply you with everything you need for a fun filled day at the beach including ice chests, chairs, towels, beach blankets, beach toys, umbrellas and boogie boards.

About Tanya McCaffery

We bought the home in 2005 and have spent a lot of time here as our boys - now 21, 9 and 7 - have grown up. As the schedules of the kids get crazier and crazier, we found that we couldn't spend as much time here and have now chosen to share it with other families that enjoy the Tahoe area!

Tanya McCaffery purchased this house in 2005

Why Tanya McCaffery chose Kings Beach

Having both grown up in the area, we love North Shore Lake Tahoe. The quaint towns, beautiful beaches and fun outdoor activities made us want to own a vacation home in the middle of it all.

What makes this house unique

King's Beach is in the heart of North Lake Tahoe. You are close to the beach, skiing and all of the communities at this end of the lake. There is really an unlimited amount of year round fun within minutes of this home.

Perfect dog-friendly Tahoe rental

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! The house was perfect for my family of 4 and our dog. It’s located walking distance to Kings Beach and all of the shops/ restaurants. Our dog had a great time in fenced backyard. The 2 living areas made it so that the kids could play video games while the grown ups watched a movie in the other room. The kitchen is well stocked. The back deck was a perfect place to enjoy some wine in the evening surrounded by the beautiful trees. I hope we have the opportunity to return to this rental next time we visit lake Tahoe!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our Tahoe trip. We are already missing it.

Tanya's house are perfect for our family (2 adults, 3 teens and a little dog).

There a re plenty of games for us to play, good amount of beach stuff and plenty of towels.

I love the kitchen. Tanya provides everything we needed.

Tanya's house is close to the beach(10 minutes). We did not have to take our car to the beach. It was great!

Thanks Tanya for letting us stay at your place. I recommend this house to everyone!

There are so many things to see and do in the Lake Tahoe area the list can be endless!

Our vacation home is about a ten minute walk to the soft sand of popular Kings' Beach Main Beach (the starting line beach of the new Ironman Tahoe) where you can get some sun or swim. This is also one of the longest walkable beach areas along the shores of Lake Tahoe.

In the summer months, there are water toys available for rent including jetskies, paddleboards, paddleboats, water trikes, boats, and kayaks. There is also a playground for the little ones. If you chose to bring your own toys, the Coon Street boat ramp is immediately to the east of King's Beach.

Away from the water, our home is a short three minute drive from where the Tahoe Rim trail crosses Highway 267 which is just one of many great hikes in North Lake Tahoe. Hikers can start on the rim trail from this parking area either heading east or west and enjoy sweeping views of Tahoe within a relatively short distance.

There are many great restaurants in downtown Kings Beach and the surrounding communities. Whether you want to enjoy the world famous 'Wet Woody' at Garwoods overlooking the lake in Carnelian bay, grab pizza on the deck at Steamers or savor gourmet cuisine in a rustic cabin in the woods in Crystal Bay at Soule Domain, there is something for everyone in our North Shore restaurants.

In King's Beach you are positioned right in between Tahoe City, Truckee and Incline Village so you can easily explore all that those areas have to offer as well. Incline Village is famous for the beautiful multi-million dollar homes along Lakeshore Drive. Both Truckee and Tahoe City have walkable downtown areas with cobblestone sidewalks and quaint shops to explore.

In the winter, Tahoe is world famous for skiing and snowboarding. At our vacation home, you are less than ten minutes from either Diamond Peak or Northstar Ski Resorts. A short twenty minutes or less and you will arrive at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and many more options for skiing and boarding. For non-skiers, there is iceskating or tubing at Northstar Village. There are also many great sledding hills and snowmobiling areas within a few minutes in various directions.

North Shore Lake Tahoe is a true gem and offers year round opportunities to explore this breathtaking natural beauty. We hope you will visit and check out all that is North Lake Tahoe!
