Beautiful condo with shared pool & tennis courts, close to Northstar!

This three-story Kings Beach vacation rental will help you see Lake Tahoe in a whole new light! The sleek interior takes design elements from nature for an earthy, warm ambiance. With a seasonal shared pool and location near Brockway Golf Club, as well as several public beaches, this Lake Tahoe getaway offers an abundance of outdoor activities. You'll love this home for a family ski getaway, as it is located only seven miles from Northstar California Resort!

Year-round, make the short drive east to Nevada's casinos for gaming, to see a show, or even a romantic dinner out. Of course, you don't need to drive far to take advantage of the great restaurants in Kings Beach. With over 25 cafes, pubs, and eateries, you'll be able to find a place for a great meal, whether it's a hole-in-the-wall hidden gem or a fancy, fine dining experience.

You'll definitely look forward to returning to this cozy condo after a day (or night) out on the town.This warm and cozy retreat, nestled among the pine trees, has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

Walking into the home, you'll notice the open feel of the dining room, living room and kitchen, so you can easily socialize no matter where you take a seat. The dining room table seats four, but there's also a convenient breakfast bar for light meals or snacks. In the bright, well-organized kitchen you'll have everything you need to prepare vacation meals - whether it be freshly ground coffee and oatmeal in the mornings or an aromatic pork and white bean stew at night. There's even a dishwasher to clean everything up after the meal's over.

Out on the balcony, there's a lovely view of the landscaped community grounds, as well as a gas grill. Grab some steaks or chicken at a nearby grocery store, and have a delicious outdoor cookout. This space is also ideal for crisp sunny mornings waking up with a cup of hot coffee or chatting with your loved one with a glass of wine after dinner.

Similar to the architecture of a town home, this condo is three stories tall. The first level has a comfortable bedroom with a queen sized bed. The second floor features the open living and dining room and the third floor has an open loft with a twin over double-size bunk bed. The kids will love climbing all the way to the top and into their own space. Both bedrooms have accessories like bedside tables and lamps for easy nighttime reading in bed and also cozy, colorful bedding. With its two bedrooms, this North Lake Tahoe vacation rental will easily accommodate five guests.

Additional amenities include a washer and dryer, a gas fireplace for chilly nights, and WiFi throughout the condo to help you stay in touch with friends, as well as a stereo with a CD player. The condo is perfect for young families, as you'll also find a booster seat, a Pack 'n Play, and baby gates to make traveling with little ones a breeze! You will love watching DVDs on the new flat screen television or maybe you'll just want to spend a quiet night reading a book, leafing through magazines, or playing board games.

It's only a mile and a half to Kings Beach State Park, so you can spend a sunny afternoon relaxing or playing frisbee on the shore. Pack a picnic lunch and bring a big striped beach blanket for some quality downtime on the edge of crystal clear Lake Tahoe. There's also boating or water skiing to consider, as well as a scenic cruise around the lake. The area is also rich with other outdoor activities like golf at the Old Brockway Golf Course, hiking, biking, or even rock climbing.

And in the snowy winter months, take advantage of the ski season at Northstar! Only a 10 minute drive from the condo, you and your whole family can spend some quality time together downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, ice skating, or winter tubing!

Come enjoy Lake Tahoe anytime of year - for a family ski getaway or a fun-in-the-sun retreat. You'll find this bright and stylish Kings Beach condo ready and waiting for your adventure!

The "vascasa" rental experience was awesome. The home had everything we needed. The experience to check in was so easy. The place was bigger then we expected. The home was spotless and in other words really clean and organized. We would definitely recommend the #222 home.

The only neagtive thing is that the "ac" never felt like its was on.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit, Charlie. This home is not equipped with A/C and is not listed as a featured amenity for the home though we are happy to accommodate requests for fans to make the home more comfortable in the warmer months. Thank you for being a great guest!
Shelby L. Aug 2019
Very nice updated house. Clean upon entering and easy check in and check out. Our main concerns were the check in time (4) seemed a little late to us and when we arrived an hour early, there was no way to communicate if the cleaning crew was done and if we could get in early. Our baby was ready to get out of the car after travel but after calling Vacasa , they just said we couldn’t check in an hour early. The other issue we had was the house was VERY hot. We didn't mind that there was no AC but we would have loved some fans in the rooms. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Shelby! Our property manager is ensuring this home and others in the area have multiple fans available for guest use. Guests are also welcome to call in and request more if they uncomfortable. Thank you!

Fabien B. Apr 2019
Very cosy and super well equipped with everything we needed for a wonderful weekend at lake Tahoe!
Gary A. Mar 2019
Conveniently situated for recreation..
Very easy to get to all ski resorts in the area which include Northstar, Diamond Peak, Squaw and Alpine.
The lake is less than a mile away.
The condo is well maintained and very cozy.
Gary A. Dec 2018
Perfect location
Interior outstanding
Ishaan K. Jul 2018
We loved the condo! 3 floors, nice and cozy- great balcony to hangout on... would definitely recommend for group of 3-4 or family when visiting north Lake Tahoe.
Tom E. Jun 2018
Had many items needed for longer stays, but nice to have for quick weekend trips.

This is a nice clean updated condo. Kitchen was well equipped and beds comfortable. Close to Northstar. Perfect for our family.
Alfredo Q. Jan 2018
awesome
Todd S. Jan 2018
This is our second time renting this property. The first time was 2 years ago. We're please with the upgrades since our last visit and found the property very comfortable during our stay. With Northstar just up the road and being close to restaurants and the grocery store you couldn't ask for a better location for a winter ski trip during the holidays.
Katharine H. Jan 2018
Great location in King's Beach. We were a family of 4 that stayed there. Nice to have a gas fireplace and the Webber BBQ is piped for gas so no need to replace tank or wonder if it was left full. Short walk to the pool (in the summer) and ample parking. Layout was great for our family (2 adults and 2 kids). I think you could fit a family of 5 in the condo. I wouldn't recommend it for familieswith toddlers due to the open stairs and loft
Gary A. Dec 2017
Everything you could wish for a perfect getaway.
Eunice C. Nov 2017
Everything was awesome, we all really enjoyed this place and we immediately felt like home the minute we walked in. All the appliances in the kitchen made it super easy for us to cook and eat. I really recommend this place, everything was clean and beautiful, a great location to get around all Lake Tahoe. It was very comfortable and we didn't want to leave. Definitely coming back to this specific place on our next visit! Thank you!
Laura H. Oct 2017
Clean, well furnished beautiful location.
will stay there again.
Shelley H. Oct 2017
Location wonderful! Extremely clean. Comfortable. Stairs to front door, stairs to living area, stairs to 2nd bed and bath. A little difficult for older folks. Well appointed.
Roshan K. Sep 2017
Its a small, cozy and clean unit. Perfect for a small family or small group of friends. The house can get a bit warm during summer. I had a tough time getting my 2 year old to sleep as it was very hot during the night. The house was located close to the beach, restaurants and has a safeway nearby which was very convenient. Overall it was a good stay.
Michael M. Jul 2017
The condo was nice. Clean and decently supplied. Two areas for improvement would be to install a thermostat that would allow the fan to run. The loft was too hot to sleep in. Also, they only have basic cable (not that we went to Tahoe to watch TV) but it would have been nice to be able to watch more than local news in the evening.
Raymond H. Jun 2017
Awesome place all around, but 2 discrete problems. Got a pretty significant cut on my foot due to something sharp on the bathtub drain. Also, incorrect code given for tennis court access; took until mid next day to get me the right code. I have confidence these can be easily fixed, and plan to stay here again.
Manager response:
We apologize for the injury received during this stay!
Mary Beth H. May 2017
The townhouse was a perfect quick getaway, close to all amenities, yet tucked away from the crowds. Easy parking in front of unit. This is a tri-level, so keep the stairs in mind. Clean and wifi worked great. Suggest blow-dryers be put in bathrooms and that the cable TV selection be expanded.
Nancy A. May 2017
Perfect location
Nice remodeled condo
Kyle A. Apr 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much. On this trip we wanted to ski at Northstar, Donner Ski Ranch, Mt. Rose and Diamond Peak. We also wanted to dine out in Truckee and Tahoe City. The location for us was very central, with just about everything within a 20 minute drive. The unit was well supplied and very clean. It turned out to be even nicer in person than what I was expecting from the pictures. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends. Thank you!
Kelly R. Mar 2017
We had a fantastic time and will surely rent this lovely condo again. The location is awesome- close to snow play, lake, shopping- anything you could want!
Shuia Q. Jan 2017
we stayed their for ski trip. house is close to all we needed to go. the loft is good for kids and the bedroom downstair has a queen size bed. house is very clean overall and it has pretty much everything you would need. recommend to small families with 2-3 kids.
Mark H. Jan 2017
Very clean and comfy condo. All basic cooking utensils were there as we needed them. I wish more units were NOT pet friendly such as this one. We love animals and pets but it was nice to stay in a place free of pet odor and hair Plenty of towels and the beds were very comfortable. I hope to stay here again during the ski season.
Sofi K. Jan 2017
Over it was a good experience.
Ken H. Dec 2016
Perfect size for small family of 4. Private master bedroom on a he 1st floor and kids own their own space on the 3rd. Renovated kitchen provides almost everything you need for quick meal to holiday feast. Convenient location to the most ski resorts, stores and restaurant.

Only complaint is no hair dryer was provided in this TH, which is a bit surprising to me. Fortunately we are able to pick up one from he rite aid store before they close at 10pm.

Sherri L. Oct 2016
Everything was clean, easy and perfect. It was just what we needed.
KAROLINA C. Sep 2016
Everything on the highest level. I'm going to go back there again and use vacasa.com
Donald B. Sep 2016
Very nice location... Quiet and close to everything
Nicole G. Aug 2016
This is a very nice condo. The bathrooms are remodeled beautifully & so is the kitchen. This could only be a better place if the couch was a sofa bed for 2!
Heather A. Aug 2016
Great location in peaceful surroundings. Immaculate accommodations. Will definitely be staying here again!
Tony N. Aug 2016
Very lovely place. The kind of place I could live in and not just vacation.
Lale E. Aug 2016
I stayed here with my husband and 2 years old son for two nights and wish we had another night here at Kings Beach. The location is great, less than 5 min drive to the beach. I brought my own pillow cases just in case but did not need to use them. Everything was very clean. We felt like home.
Stephanie B. Aug 2016
Very enjoyable
Paul L. Mar 2016
This property is in good location of you ski at Northstar or.would like to be near Nevada state line or the lake. The property is about 25 minutes drive from Squaw Valley. Don't expect luxury accommodation. Otherwise it's in good condiltion with 2 balconies and very quiet. Safeway supermarket is 1 mile away and is open 24/7. Recommend it.
Kristen N. Mar 2016
This was a great location for our quick weekend ski trip! Perfect for a family of 4. Only wish there was a better selection of TV channels to choose from and the kitchen microwave just needs to be updated. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
James M. Feb 2016


I just called vacasa to give them this feedback. The woman told me to fill out this feedback form so that my feedback gets properly documented.

property has potential but is poorly managed

This condo had very little supplies, the items in the kitchen were scattered in different drawers and cabinets , had to hunt for everything, minimal stock and supplies. It felt like a pure rental with an absent owner as I couldn't imagine any owner alloying their property to be in the shape that this condo was in. Dishwasher soap dispenser door would not release during a wash cycle. Both Large blinds on the sliding doors need replacing, one wouldn't rotate to close to keep light out and for privacy at night and the other was missing sections.

Also no shovel to dig out the snow, our car got snowed in.

Cleaners were late (arrived after 4pm checking in time) and didn't finish till after 6pm. One lady was there for 10 minutes and left another came about 40 minutes later, and then more, there phones were ringing every 2-3 minutes. Did a minimal cleaning, kitchen floor wasn't mopped. Noting was dusted or wiped off except for the kitchen counter. Found dirty pots and pans, a dirty cooking tray in the oven and a cutting board with sauce spilled on it along with small pieces of garlic.

Cleaning fee is double what a similar property charges. The cleaners that Vacasa uses are overworked. Cleaning lady told me she had 15 units to clean at Northstar earlier that day. Our friends arrived two days after us and stayed in a vacasa managed condo next door, their cleaners didn't show up till after 6pm (check in time is 4pm). This was a big problem as I was traveling with young children who needed to be fed and nap.

Cleaners left before clothes washer was finished and I put the items in the dryer, not a big deal. Noticed there were no sheets in the washer. They either left the used sheets on the bed or took them with them.

when I arrived to check in and found the place dirty I called vacasa to let them know, then didn't answer, left a voicemail, they didn't call back till 9:30pm or later.

Reduce your cleaning fees, have cleaning staff increase the number of workers so that units can be cleaned in time and increased cleaning staff would allow a good cleaning without being rushed.




Manager response:
We are incredibly sorry to see that this was this guest's experience; more housekeepers have been hired for the area so our homes can be better cared for and prepared for our guests.
Linda L. Feb 2016
Very nice condo and close to Kings Beach/Tahoe activities. Stayed here to go skiing at Northstar, which was a great proximity. Condo clean and comfortable. Not well stocked in terms of kitchen staples; paper towels, napkins, foil, and basic cooking condiments. Have stayed other VRBO places and have found the kitchen far more stocked than this place. TV remotes also very hard to figure out to get regular TV going, sounds stupid but tenant guidelines would be great. Fortunately, my 20 year old son showed up to help with this. Nice condo!
Todd S. Dec 2015
Our family stayed at the property over the 2015 Xmas holiday and it was everything as advertised. Great location, close to restaurants and grocery stores. We spent most of our days skiing and enjoyed the evenings in this cozy condo which was well appointed for a family of four. Only one negative comment would be the twin beds in the loft which would slide around on the box springs when the kids where sleeping.
Roslan R. Dec 2015
Great location, clean, no problems.
We did not like the fact that the owner of the RED JEEP who lives across the street took our parking spot! We removed the snow from the parking spot in front of our unit and he took it and we went to ski.
Richard S. Feb 2015
We went to see our son who is coaching freestyle skiing at Northstar. We enjoyed the condo very much. Would stay here again without hesitation. The area is just incredible.
Dinna V. Mar 2014
Mother Nature didn't cooperate (no snow) but we enjoyed our stay anyway thanks to the comfortable and centrally-located accommodations. It'd be great if the old carpet was ripped out and replaced by hardwood floors or even just newer carpets but other than that, it was a very nice place. Kitchen was perfect and had everything we needed. Very cozy. Will stay again in the future.
Nicole S. Feb 2014
We had a great stay here. It's the perfect location for getting between the lake and Truckee. It had all the amenities we needed and was comfortable and clean and plenty of space for the kids to play (and included baby gates which we didn't need but I thought was a great feature for families with little ones).
