Recent Kings Beach reviews

  • Clean and comfortable

    "The property was clean and inviting. Our kids really enjoyed having their own space. The kitchen was nicely stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, pans pots knives coffee maker, etc. You do not need to bring anything. The stove and oven worked quickly. They had plenty of extra towels, blankets, and linen. There were Dvds and board games for the kids. They even had some snow sleds in the garage. The washer and dryer worked well. The heater warmed up quickly. The area was very quiet. It was close to Northstar, Safeway, and the lake. We pulled over on the side of the road nearby to play in the snow (saved about $250 vs going to Northstar) and the kids had a lot of fun and burned off their energy. The town is really small and cozy. We had dinner at local restaurant called Soule Domain and it was nice and cozy( the food wasn't as tasty as I would expect it to be, but the experience was nice). Overall, this was a very nice place to stay especially with kids."

  • Amazing View!

    "We were a little nervous about booking this unit since there were only a few reviews, but so glad we did! Unit is pretty much as the photos show. The lake really is that close! And nice, cool breezes off the lake. The kitchen/dining/living rooms are open to each other, with the living room's window right out to the deck & the lake. The other room with a view is the master (king) on the 2nd floor (own bathroom). There are 4 other bedrooms - none of these have views: one on the 1st floor (shares 1st floor bath) two others on the 2nd floor (one has a small patio - both share a bathroom), & a loft bedroom on the 3rd floor (up steep steps and shares 2nd floor bath). Plenty of cookware, dishes & glasses (some nice wine glasses, thank you) & even a wine fridge in the living room. Our cell service was spotty; wireless worked. The reason we give 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is dated and there are a number of maintenance items. Overall, the finishes and furnishings are dated. There are cracked and broken counter and floor tiles. There's carpet in the bathrooms (yuck). There was at least one towel bar that was being held in place with clear tape. There were no beach towels - very disappointing when you're right at King's Beach! There are notes all over warning you not to do this, not to do that - maybe we get that with the size of the unit and therefore the number of people that might stay, but for responsible people like us, it's a little off-putting. As is having to load and turn on the dishwasher and take the trash out to the dumpsters when you leave, but fine. We did not go to the pool, as it's a bit of a trek, has no parking, & is not heated (not any warmer than the lake). It does have a nice view of the lake, though. You can walk to King's Beach (again, a long-ish walk), and into town for meals or shopping, although none of those meals will be fancy. What we most enjoyed with the unit was eating in at night with a beautiful view, having cocktails on the deck at sunset. I also own a vrbo unit (elsewhere), and think that the maintenance/finishes, and the notes, are detractors to the overall experience (it would otherwise be a 5 star!). Luckily, the unit was available with only a month's notice when so many others were already long booked. We would come here again, as it was perfect for a small group of 4 women to celebrate their 50th birthdays in a beautiful location. Agate Bay (manager) was helpful, friendly by email, and responsive."

  • Perfect Vacation Home

    "Perfect for family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids), or 2 couples. Two renovated master bedrooms upstairs with their own bath rooms. Location cannot be more convenient with restaurants & supermarkets in walking distance. 10 min drive to North Star and 20 min to Squaw Valley. Also private grass/sand beach for the community that gives you the breathtaking view of Lake Tahoe. Highly recommended and will come back again"

  • Vacation in Lake Tahoe

    "Ten of us, in 3 generations of the family, all from the eastern slope of Colo.,spent 5 superb days skiing, snowshoeing, eating, watching basketball tournament games, playing games, and thoroughly enjoying this get-away home. Everything was "as advertised". The owner was very helpful in answering questions about the home beforehand, and the local contact (part of the owner family) called to see if all was well after we had settled in. I (we) would enthusiastically recommend this property to any group similar to ours. I hope we can do a repeat performance next year!"
