About David and Phyllis Martin

Phyllis and I (David) own David Realty Company in Shreveport, Louisiana which we started in 1993. We own rental property in the local area - North Louisiana - as well as our recent vacation rental property in Kings Beach, CA.

We have 3 grown children and 11 grandchildren which enjoy HIGHER GROUND

very much. David is a Louisiana licensed real estate broker. We have done

our best to make HIGHER GROUND feel like a home for our guests.

David and Phyllis Martin purchased this cabin in 2012

Why David and Phyllis Martin chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We've been traveling to Lake Tahoe for many years and have stayed with my sister at her house. We decided to make memories with our own vacation property.

What makes this cabin unique

It has a rustic look with walking trails close at hand and is close to the beach. It's size even accommodates our large family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most incredible Friendsgiving at Higher Ground!! The house is beautiful, cosy and so well located (5 minute drive from Kings Beach) and it has literally everything you could ever wish for - ping pong, table football, a popcorn machine, huge film collection, hot tub (complete with heated mats so our feet didn't freeze when we got out!) and we were so impressed with the kind details David & Phyllis had thought of such as welcoming us with a basket of hot chocolate and popcorn kernels. We cooked a huge Thanksgiving meal for 9 and the kitchen had every kind of utensil and dish and pot that we needed! The beds were comfortable and the house was super cosy and warm - there was even a Christmas tree. Thank you so much David & Phyllis - we so hope to return soon!!

Our family and friends went up to celebrate a couple of birthdays and we couldn't have picked a more perfect spot. There was plenty of room for everyone in our party. This house has all the amenities you'd find in your own home. The location is great. Close to the beach and shops. We would definitely stay here again!

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place b/c of the amount of room for the price and the amenities. The hot tub was a top priority and it did not disappoint - big enough for all of us (7) and worked very well all week. There are 2 sets of washer/dryer and that made towel washing easy and efficient. There were plenty of chairs to enjoy the patio or hang out in the garage and play ping pong. There is a ton of plate ware and glassware to accommodate everyone as well. House was clean upon arrival and the owners were easy to get in touch with. House doesn't have a lake view but it is in a cul de sac that had nice neighbors and we even saw a bear. Kings Beach is less than a mile away and easy to call a taxi or drive down to. Safeway is very close and has everything you might need. I highly recommend this place for all groups!
